Get Ready for June Bloom!

'Fanlore June Bloom 2015'

Have you ever searched for something on Fanlore only to come up empty? Have the words “How does this not have a Fanlore page yet?!” ever crossed your mind? Have you ever wanted to share something fandom related with your fellow fans?

If you answered YES to at least one of these questions, then this month’s challenge is for you!

Use June Bloom to start the pages you always wanted to see on Fanlore! Spread the love of your fandoms to others.

The pages you create don’t have to be complex! We want you to simply sow the seeds and watch these pages bloom as other editors add their own knowledge and perspective. With your help we will be able to turn Fanlore into a beautiful garden full of different pages everybody will be able to enjoy.

If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry! Every week the Fanlore staff will be posting a theme to help inspire you. Watch their community on Dreamwidth and the fanlore_news Twitter for additional announcements.

If you don’t like editing on your own, an editing party will take place June 13th starting at 16:00 UTC (what time is that in my timezone?) in the Fanlore chat room. Come and ask questions or just work on entries alongside other people!

For those who can’t make the editing party, there will be a staffer ready to help you every weekend in June. Simply stop by the Fanlore chatroom. If you find the Fanlore room empty, leave your your question (along with your Fanlore username) and a staffer will get in touch with you on your Talk page. Plus you can always send an email to the Fanlore Gardeners.

Remember: As an anti-spam preventative measure, brand new accounts are not allowed to create pages for the first four hours. But that doesn’t mean you can’t help by editing existing pages first! It will be great practice for those unfamiliar with wiki editing.

Start by checking out the New Visitor Portal then start searching for things connected to your fandom! You can also check out the Fanlore Wish List for inspiration.
