Task Instructions

You can complete these tasks on any Fanlore page, regardless of the topic or fandom!

  • Add an example fanwork to any page: Many Fanlore pages about characters, fandoms, tropes/genres and ships have a 'Fanworks'/'Notable Fanworks'/'Example Fanworks' section which lists example fanworks about that topic, usually with a description to summarise why they're noteworthy or a good example. For this task, add an example to any of these sections - or you can create a whole new section on a page that doesn't have one, and add an example!
  • Add five internal links to any page: Adding internal links (or "wikilinks") to Fanlore pages is important for helping users who are browsing Fanlore navigate from topic to topic, and ensuring that pages on the wiki can be easily navigated to. To complete this task, add five internal links to other Fanlore pages on any page. ("Redlinks" to pages that don't exist yet also count for this task). For more on internal linking, check out our Help page section on internal links.
  • Add a new section to a page: You can add a new section to a page by creating a header or subheader, e.g. ==Example Fanworks== and adding text under it. Have a browse through other pages of the same type to get ideas for what sections you can add. Also, check out Category:Stubs or Category:Pages that need expansion to find pages that could be expanded upon.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
