For those who don't know, there *is* a difference between "fan fiction" and "fanon." A '''huge''' difference. ''Fan Fiction is what this wiki is about; fiction written by fans. Fanon is stuff that is not explicitly stated in canon material, but is often accepted as such, as most of this wiki is NOT.'' In case there's more you didn't know, Wikia has recently stopped creating wikis with the word "fanon" in the name--at least, they've stopped making wikis like *this* one, about fan FICTIon, with "fanon" in the name. It's entirely by mistake of whoever came up with the name that this is the Fanon wiki, and not the Fan Fiction wiki, which is why I think the site name should be changed. The Project namespace would be changed, so there would be pages called '''Fan Fiction:About''' instead of [[Fanon:About]], and the wiki would move to <code>fanfiction.wikia.com</code> or <code>fanfic.wikia.com</code>. To make sure no one who decides not to participate in this discussion doesn't wonder where the site went, this subdomain could easily be redirected to the new one, so, while you'd eventually have to get used to a different site address, at first it would be okay if you forgot the name changed or something. Anyway, what y'all think?

# No, there's already a [http://fanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Fan-Fiction Wiki], therefore making this pointless. I will, however, give this forum a few more days of (pointless) voting before locking & closing it down.
