Hello members of the Fanon Wiki community. I'd like to announce a new "operation", which will be titled Operation Clean Up (otherwise simply "Op. CU" for short). This movement will be lead by both administrators and community users alike. It will consist of a mass clean up and/or article deletion of Fanon Wiki, to ensure a clear (or "purified," if you will) community. The content of the majority of our articles is poor, to say the least. There aren't enough contributors. As an administrator and bureaucrat, it is my job to give this wiki my all, and make sure it becomes one of the best. I plan on attempting to gather and recruit more users, another administrator, and make a massive amount of edits sometime within the near future. What this means for you, is that if some, or it could be many, of your articles are deleted, then it's because they failed to meet our requirements.

For now, a list of ways users can help us administrators improve Fanon Wiki:

  • Tag any uncategorized articles with {{No category}}
  • Create articles and pages that follow all of Fanon Wiki's, especially the New Manual of Style.
  • Don't upload images/files without knowing and posting their original source, and the file's author (if applicable)
  • Revert acts of vandalism
  • Improve the quality of preexisting articles
  • Recruit and gather new users to Fanon Wiki. Make sure they are reliable, ready to follow our policies and rules, and want to have a good time creating articles
  • Have fun. Op. CU is meant to help Fanon Wiki and its community, not drive anyone away.

I agree as long there is no vandals around and someone sets up a Fanon Wiki:Blocking Policy.(C&C King 03:32, January 1, 2010 (UTC))

  • That's a good idea, though I think in the interest of starting to clean things up we should start looking at an expanded Manual of Style first. A blocking policy will be a good thing in the future, but as of now we don't really have anyone to block. Good idea for the near future, though. - Brandon Rhea (talk) 04:22, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
