Sleepy Hollow, Illinois – If you are looking for information about fans and all the activities they engage in, you need to check out Fan History Wiki located at http://www.fanhistory.com/ . In May 2009, in trying to become the best resource of its kind, Fan History became the biggest MediaWiki-based wiki that is not part of the Wikimedia Foundation with over 750,000 articles.
Fan History’s accomplishment has been several years in the making. Since May 2006, the project has been working on documenting the history of fan communities. Fan History started with some basic history information that had originally been found on FanFiction.Net. The focus had been on media fandom and fan fiction. In 2007, the focus changed and became broader and less focused on fan fiction.
