Fanfacts
« on: December 07, 2012, 11:35:39 AM »
I've noticed a lot of 'fanfacts' getting put up that aren't 'fan'facts at all, but simple unimportant trivia from the show. Example: "So & so owns 'X' business," or "Pony A was with Pony B in this episode at this event." What defines a fanfact? I'm pretty sure fanon means it's fan-created ideas and to an extent, inside jokes, not documented canon. Something like 'Surprise is related to Pinkie Pie' is a good example of a fanfact, where fans can agree or disagree on the matter. Something like 'Rarity has two parents' would make a terrible fanfact. I really think that these facts need to be flagged in a way, 'cause voting on something cannon seems really redundant.

Let's talk this out, what do y'all think about what defines a fanfact?

I have accidently approved a few canon ones. Sometimes it's weather or not one is believable, and other times it's dead on. Had to rewatch an episode today in order to sort some out.

I think anything the show does not explicitly state is a valid fan fact. Some things may be heavily implied, but you're still filling up the blanks with your own thoughts. I see it as a good thing to have those widely accepted, almost canon, fan facts on here.

I do agree that we should avoid true canon facts, those belong on a wiki.

Previously, I had to learn it. I think it is wonderful.
