Subject: I would also prefer not to move stuff onto Fanlore,

mostly because it feels like it's just dragging out old wank by making a page for a fic and then calling it a badfic and then mentioning PPC involvement. If the fic doesn't have a mission, it can be deleted off our wiki. My Immortal has its own dang wiki at this point; I don't really think it's necessary to have yet another internet page dedicated to it until Ix posts their mission to it.

What Nesh is suggesting is an umbrella Legendaries page that has a list of known Legendaries with very coy summaries. Legendaries with missions can keep their pages (as long as the focus of the page is on the mission) and link back to the umbrella page. If a page on Fanlore exists for a fic, link to the Fanlore page from the umbrella Legendaries page.

But if there's not a page on Fanlore already, and the fic is so obscure that only the PPC really remembers it, I don't know if I would be comfortable making a page for it on Fanlore. Most of the really big ones already got missioned, and other infamous ones like Dipper Goes to Taco Bell, etc, have Fanlore pages.

I'm all for narrowing the scope of the PPC Wiki to things specifically about or done by our OCs. If that means consigning some Bleepfics to the memory hole, then so be it. If this particular Bleepfic means a lot to you, then bring it back by missioning it. Otherwise I don't really see the point of keeping it on the Wiki if it's going to attract trolls. And I'm pretty sure making a slew of Fanlore pages about fics that a tiny corner of the internet has deemed 'legendarily bad' would also attract trolls.
