Whoo hoo! Great to see you here editing. On the IT pages you have started 2 subpages. What is the plan for the Fanworks subpage? Link to every fanwork? Popular favorites? --MeeDee (talk) 23:44, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi MeeDee ^_^ Nice to see you! Mhm... IT is my life, so I'm looking forward to filling it out as much as possible. Mind you, I've just been put to a standstill cause I don't think Fanlore has spoiler/trigger walls like Discord does. And unfortunately I'm sensitive as all get out! And someone just added something not-great so we'll see. I *do* want to add a link to every fanwork. At least the ones that aren't behind a Login wall (like pixiv). For now, I'm just going to be linking to artists, and the appropriate fandom tags. Then I'll get more detailed as I go. *If* I can keep working, that is. I'll let others decide on the Popular Favorites, which may be more usefully linked on the actual IT page. I don't really like the idea that just because something is more popular, it's 'better' so I'd rather not be the one who decides. Thanks for checking in :)) Do you prefer I just refer to you as MeeDee here? [eta: sorry, almost forgot to tag you. idk how notifs work, so I hope you didn't see multiple edits to this or anything] -- Jacksbrak (talk) 23:52, 4 December 2019 (UTC)
Welcome to Fanlore, Jacksbrak! If you'd like to familiarise yourself more with how the wiki works and what kind of things we record, I recommend checking out Fanlore:About and the Frequently Asked Questions. Since you seem to be familiar with wiki editing, you might not need our New Visitor Portal, but it has links out to other helpful pages about how Fanlore is organised.
Regarding spoilers, it's true that Fanlore is generally not a spoiler-free space. We have a Spoiler Warning template, but what's considered to be a "spoiler" is quite subjective and so not all users will employ it. We don't, by and large, have trigger walls or other methods of hiding content, though there are warnings for certain types of images.
It's worth noting that Fanlore places heavy emphasis on fandom-related content (fanworks, fan activities, fan communities, etc.) and not on canon, so in general articles shouldn't go into too much detail about the contents of canon anyway. I hope that helps! -- enchantedsleeper (talk) 09:46, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
User:Enchantedsleeper I understand... I barely scratched the tip of the iceberg on canon, but I see that it's too much. And I was going to build the pages up gradually. Canon is just the first subject on every character page. But I'm just going to leave it and someone can delete what they don't want. Thank you! Jacksbrak (talk) 17:35, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I meant that pages on Fanlore shouldn't have too many spoilers in them for you to encounter - since those are more likely to occur in canon-related content. Building up pages slowly is fine! I hope you do stick around and continue to edit the wiki ♥️ -- enchantedsleeper (talk) 18:13, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
enchantedsleeper Oh!! Sure, that makes sense ^_^ Thank you. I think maybe Fanlore isn't the best place for me after all... So I'm attempting to make my own site to suit the style of information collection I need, but once I get things more together, I'd be happy to share with Fanlore, to make filling out the IT and Stranger Things pages easier - if someone so desires. Thank you so much, again, for your help and kindness! -- Jacksbrak (talk) 21:30, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

File Sources

Hey Jacksbrak, I wanted want to point out an issue I've noticed with your file uploads. The Source line should be filled with a link to where the image was originally posted, not just the site. It's important to give proper credit when reuploading images, especially if it's fanart, and it's generally good to have citations. Even if the original post has been deleted, a link to a reblog is still helpful. I don't know if you still have the links for files you've already made, but please keep this in mind in the future. —caes (talk) 19:14, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Sorry! I can provide a link to my reblog, yes. Jacksbrak (talk) 19:16, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

May I also clarify... is Date for the date the image was created? And if we don't have access to that date, should we put the date of when it was uploaded to Fanlore? Jacksbrak (talk) 19:22, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Date is for the date the image is posted by the creator. If you don't know the date, you can leave it blank and someone else might be able to use the link to figure it out. —caes (talk) 19:30, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

"No Official Cover Art" Image

About the 8tracks fanmixes you've been recording and the galleries for the mix covers you've made. For the fanmixes that use the "No Official Cover Art" image because the fanart was used without permission, I don't see why using that image is necessary? Those mixes can easily be listed as text and links, with just the title, creator, and description, and save space. — caes (talk) 22:16, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

For the sake of presentation uniformity, and also because I left comments on those mixes, asking if they did get permission, and some were responding, that yes they did. So it was kind of a placeholder. But I'll move them to text-only positions. Jacksbrak (talk) 22:31, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
