yes, it is very funny

I have a very strong feeling that a template for mailing lists pages and a template for archive pages are desperately needed.

*chews lip* This is going to be del.icio.us all over again, isn't it?

ETA: Did I mention the page is here and there need to be more new pages now? *hopeful*

Hey, if you can channel your OCD tendencies into something productive.... but, yes, we're laughing at you and not with you.

Also, coming into this late, but... what is Fanlore? Is it a fanwiki run by non-crazy people?

Yes! Yes it is! Go and sign up now plz so I can have new pages to read!

...seriously. It's getting dangerous for me to click there.


*hopeful* User:Name is your page that is made when you sign up for an account. The regular Name is the one that is *about* you and written by other people!


*refreshes change log*

I... don't think I have the whateveritis required to write my own encyclopedia entry.

Also, I'm not exactly an expert on anything fandom. Which, coupled with the lead statement, makes me uniquely unsuited for significant contributions.

I will, however, enjoy watching you go nuts. ;)

You don't have to put anything on your user page if you don't want to. You can leave it blank, and then add a line or two to whatever interests you. It doesn't have to be a huge commitment.

I am trying to think of new things to add. Or pages I can add to. Or stare at it with feverish eyes in hopes of a new page showing up.

Well, I think the ideal outlet for OCD urges would be "List of..." pages like Wikipedia has. Like, you could do a "List of all HP communities". That would take a while...

Times like this I wish I knew anything useful about fandom. But I'm such a fandom dilettante, writing a little here and browsing Fandom Wank there, and RPing a little and commenting on thinky posts. Nothing very useful or complete. :(

As far as I know, no one has yet started on Fandom Wank. You could just edit the page, enter a couple of tidbits like who started it and why it moved to journalfan, and then walk away.

Yeah, 'cept I'm not sure I actually know any of that. I sort of remember that maybe it moved to JF after getting TOS'd by LJ...? twice? I don't know. And as for who started it, I have no idea -- isn't everything Ruth's FaultTM?



No stress! I was trying to say that you don't need to be an expert to play, but I kinda said it wrong.

*g* Well, that's encouraging, though -- I think once it gets going a bit, I might be able to contribute in the detail on a few things. Maybe a few Wincest wanks, y'know, that kind of thing. :)

Is creating templates also specific to sysop? It says we can, but mine is seriously not working.

Hmm. I do not know. I will ask hope and get back with you.

NM. I messed up the names. I am feeling very much king of my universe atm.

Back! It looks like it's working now, as it should.

*mulls* You could make up a suggested template. I would follow you.

After you've sent it off to me for my approval, of course.

*salutes crisply*

Ah- I was wondering, do you know to which extend are pages about artistic communities allowed (generic things like deviantart, y!gallery, elfwood, etc.)? I think that while most aren't exclusive to fandoms, some still were or are central to a few of them - or have generated fandom waves at one point or another.

From everything I've read so far, I think so. I'd say put up a page and go for it.

Somebody did AWESOME STUFF to my John Sheppard entry! I was so excited when I got home. I LOVE THIS IT IS TOTALLY ADDICTIVE AND AWESOME. I love it so much. *hearts hearts hearts*


Hey, for John Sheppard--and maybe later Atlantis characters--maybe we could make a profile for them similar to but different from the Template:UserProfile to put their vital stats in? Like name, age, rank, etc etc etc?

Yes! We could do it as a call-out box!
