Fanon

This seems like a fanon page. Why are there so many of these unofficial fan articles around the wiki? >_> --Sajuuk 16:03, April 17, 2016 (UTC)

Our coverage of all things Harry Potter encompasses the Harry Potter fandom. We're free to document the Harry Potter phenomenon more extensively than a general-interest encyclopedia like Wikipedia, including Harry Potter fan sites, fan works, and parodies that might not be deemed "notable" elsewhere.
However, we do have notability guidelines for articles on fandom-related topics and derivative works. This article meets the criteria for inclusion for parodies, since RiffTrax is a "well-known creator of satirical content," and their satirical dub tracks of the Potter films have been released commercially.

Then my question is: what exactly is this wiki's coverage zone? I always took this place to being a canonical only source of HP, not "canonical with a bunch of fanon we consider notable". Things like this are not relevant to this site, because it's not canonical. Maybe the notability guidelines needs updated. --Sajuuk 09:44, April 18, 2016 (UTC)
