Fanlore Wiki! \o/

A couple of hours ago, Fanlore went live.

*and the crowds go wild with glee*

*or, well, the number of visitors has doubled anyway :)*

This is going to be such a brilliant resource. I can't even tell you how many times I've wanted to check a bit of fannish information, and I've been totally unable to find it. And now, as long as we all go over and add the latest news from time to time, it will be right there at our fingertips.

Like, just for example, the next time I want to talk about AMTDI, I will be able to just wander over and see what other people think of it, what the historical trends in it have been, what the related tropes are, and what the really influential fanfics have been. I know, I know, I'm a giant nerd, but the very idea of that makes me happy.

If you haven't used a wiki before, there's some introductory info on the otw_news launch post, or you can go straight to the wiki's New Visitor Portal.

*shoos you along to check it out*
