Fanlore to Reach 25,000 Articles Milestone

The OTW is pleased to announce that its fandom wiki project, Fanlore, will be passing a new milestone in the next few weeks. Launched on September 29, 2008, the site, which is open to contributions by all fans, will be reaching 25,000 articles. To celebrate, we are planning a trivia contest and are inviting everyone to participate!

Starting on June 16th and ending on the 18th we will be posting 10 questions a day, at the Fanlore Dreamwidth community, whose answers can be found on Fanlore. All comments to these posts will be screened and you do not need an account to post comments at the site. The first individual to submit correct answers to all questions at that post will win an OTW magnet, usually available only to those making donations. (This offer is void where prohibited.)

There will be a total of three winners, one for each post. The posts will be made at different times each day to allow participants in different timezones plenty of time to respond.

If you have any questions please leave them here. If you’d like to contribute your own content to Fanlore, take a look at their tutorial to get you started. And even if you aren’t planning to take part in the contest, we invite you to stop by Fanlore and check out the great content that’s been assembled there in the last five years.
