Referential

  • Just a reminder that articles should be written as if they are references, not as advertisements. The goal is to document referential information about the topic, not to try to promote a particular topic. :) (Admin 20:52, 26 January 2007 (EST))
    • What is this article for? Is heroswiki supposed to have special articles for every Heroes fan club that exists with two or more members? Why don't we have an article called "Grandma's Basement" named after the place where a group of kids in Boise watch the show?--E rowe 13:01, 27 January 2007 (EST)
      • It seems no worse than "Clach" or "Paire". The whole reason we have a Fan Creations section is to catalog things like this. We're not Wikipedia, and we don't have an artificial "notability" requirement. In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with this article, as long as it's Marked (lol see what I did there?) as a fan creation.--Hardvice (talk) 12:55, 27 January 2007 (EST)
        • I do agree with E rowe in a way. It's a lot more difficult to gauge the value of fan creations like this. Fortunately at the moment it hasn't gotten out of hand, but if it does we might have to start putting some policy in place as to what fan fiction qualifies for inclusion. In any event fan fiction pages aren't linked to from main articles (they have their own portal page for instance to lead interested visitors there) so their impact isn't too severe. For now since these topics are of interest to fans I think we should try to cater to them as long as they remain referential and don't cause any collateral problems.

          • These articles sort of feel like my weird Uncle Joe's family — we all kind of ignore them, even though they're part of the family. I think we should keep them, but I say that extremely reluctantly. ... BTW, I think the grandma's basement article should probably be properly named "Grandma's Basement (Boise)". :) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:00, 27 January 2007 (EST)
            • Couldn't agree more. I can see it getting out of hand, but I don't think we're there (yet). And as long as they stay in Fan Creations, I feel about the same as I do about Spoilers and Theories ... I'm glad they're there, but I'm not going to spend a lot of my time on them.--Hardvice (talk) 15:10, 27 January 2007 (EST)
              • I'm so glad that somebody else out there agrees that my Uncle Joe's family is weird. (Wait, I hope they're not Heroes fans...) :) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:40, 27 January 2007 (EST)
                • "Is heroswiki supposed to have special articles for every Heroes fan club that exists with two or more members?" Well duh. Of course it is! It's not like there's a short supply of WikiGel to go around making these pages. If it informs the people interested in the television series that there are fan clubs they might want to join, what's it hurt? I agree that Heroes Wiki shouldn't become free publicity for just any fly-by-night, but part of what's being documented here is the fan reaction to the series, and what better way to chronicle that then allow pages like this not only to exist but to flourish?

Lead Image

This needs a 450x350 lead image so it can be added to Portal:Fan Creations and (the as yet nonexistent) Portal:Heroes 360.--Hardvice (talk) 12:14, 27 January 2007 (EST)
