Task Instructions

  • Create a redirect to a page from an alternate name, spelling or capitalization: Often redirects need to be created on Fanlore to link terms with the same meaning to the relevant page, e.g. redirecting "Bisexuality and fandom" to the page Bisexuality and Fandom, or "Katekyou Hitman Reborn!" to Katekyo Hitman Reborn. Check out Help:Redirects to learn how to create a redirect.
  • Add a link to an orphaned page: An orphaned page is a page that has no internal links pointing to it from any other pages on Fanlore. Special:LonelyPages contains our full list of orphaned pages; you can "un-orphan" them by adding a (relevant!) wikilink pointing to them from any other Fanlore page.
  • Vote on a Featured Article nomination: Featured Articles appear prominently on the front page of Fanlore, and are examples of interesting, comprehensive and well-written Fanlore pages. Any Fanlore editor can vote on articles to be featured on Fanlore's front page (and nominate them, too!). Check out our instructions for voting on a nomination and then add your vote to any of our current nominees!
  • Say hello on a user's talk page: Comment on a Talk page belonging to one of your fellow Fanlore editors to say hi! If you're not sure who to approach, our Fanlore Gardeners are all very friendly people who are more than happy to receive a random greeting :D
  • Add a category to a page or image: Categories are important for structuring Fanlore and making its pages findable. They can be added to images, too! Check out How to Add a Page to the Categories to learn how to add a category, and then add a relevant category (or subcategory) to a page or image. If it's a new category that you created, that counts, too!
  • Add a reference to a page that is missing citations: References, or citations, are notes that indicate where a piece of information or a quote has come from. Check out How to create a basic footnote to learn how to add one to a page on Fanlore. To complete this task, you can add a reference or references to any page that either has no references at all, or is flagged as needing more citations.
  • Add an image gallery: Image galleries are useful when you want to showcase multiple example images, e.g. a set of example fancrafts or a set of website screenshots. Check out How to create an image gallery to learn how to format one.
  • Add a quotation to a page and reference it: Quotations are useful for adding things like fan comments, reviews, or excerpts from articles or meta to a page. Add a quotation of any kind (you can use Template:Quotation or Template:NQuote to format it) to a page and add a reference to show where the quote was sourced from.
  • Add content to a section marked 'needs expansion': The template {{ExpandArticle}} is often added to articles or sections of articles that need fleshing out, sometimes with an explanation as to what needs adding. Articles marked with this flag can be found in Category:Pages that need expansion. For this task, we are looking for additions to page sections that have this flag, rather than to pages that have been generally flagged as needing expansion.
