Namespace suggestions[edit source]

Fanon[edit source]

It's an obvious one, but I've never really cared for the term, and it may still be too officious. Definitely willing to entertain alternatives. --Alahmnat, Grand Master (talk) 22:08, 4 January 2017 (PST)

Apocrypha[edit source]

Also not a personal favorite, tbh. If anything, it swings too far to the other side of the scale from "fanon" in terms of indicating its reliability. I prefer to leave this for things that are demonstrably not canon, like the Riven Journals or the Dark Horse comics. --Alahmnat, Grand Master (talk) 22:08, 4 January 2017 (PST)

Apocrypha on Main[edit source]

No separate namespace (suggested by Eleri). “Fanon” material would be posted in the Main namespace, with an “Apocrypha” template included at the top to signify that it was non-canon (in which case “Apocrypha” would apply equally to officially-published content and fan material alike). All such content would also be placed in an Apocrypha category. Fan content, official non-canon content, and canon content would all appear in basic search results and page title auto-completes. --Alahmnat, Grand Master (talk) 12:56, 12 December 2017 (PST)
