Banner by Caitie of autumn leaves with text saying fanlore stub september.

It's that time again! Fans are welcome to edit Fanlore at any time of the year, but this month the Wiki Committee is organizing a special event. Stub September is a challenge for everyone, newcomers and seasoned Fanlore editors alike, to pick a stub and expand on it. A stub is an article on Fanlore that is under-developed and missing important information.

Right now, there are over 2,000 existing pages on Fanlore that are already identified as stubs. You can use the list to find a page where you know something about the topic, and edit the page to add your new information. Simple!

We're changing up the format of the challenge at bit this year -- Instead of last year's weekly themes, we'll be posting periodic tips relating to finding and expanding stubs and some suggestions to help you decide what to work on.

Feel free to post links to the articles you work on and let others know about the project! You can tweet at the Fanlore twitter account to let us know how you're doing.

If you haven't tried writing something for Fanlore before, Stub September is a good time to add more information to existing Fanlore articles without having to start your own page from scratch. If you have questions about Fanlore or how to get started, the Fanlore Gardeners are always willing to lend a hand, or you're welcome to leave a comment here at the Dreamwidth community.

Happy editing!

This is great! I just made a stub for Matt Smith but I don't know anything about him, I hope someone takes it and runs with it!
