I'm trying to write up something about the DCM (the German Cosplay championship) for fanlore and I never noticed how inconsistent the coverage on their website is. There is no overview of all the years and winners, the "news" items differ in the way names and pictures are presented. (sometimes there are links to the animexx nick names, sometimes pictures are uploaded on their page...)

And don't get me started on animexx. The last time someone updated their DCM wiki was 2009. 2007 is the only year that has a detailed overview and the announcements of names and winners are buried in their un-navigatable news backlog. It's a mess. I remember why I never liked that site. A lot of shiny, new and no sense of keeping history.

I finally have a little more time on my hands and want to use it to finally get really started on fanlore.

I want to read over the Animexx article, I guess. It is pretty comprehensive already, but I’m not sure all the controversies I’ve come across are up yet.

I’ve made a tentative list of things I want to write about, most of them are conventions or fandom culture stuff:

Animagic
Hanami
DCM
Connichi
Conhon
KaKAO Cards

There are also different show groups that are quite interesting. I’m just not sure how to make fanlore entries for them:

Tsuki no senshi
Ongaku no kara
K!seki

These are a few that spring to mind, but there are more, of course. Many that have disbanded by now, too. I’ll have to check this on convention programs I guess.

There are also many local events and conventions that may be interesting.
I’ll make a more comprehensive list along the way. But I#ll get started with the important stuff I listed above.

I’ve surfed a bit through fanlore entries and found that many areas are still very much empty. There are a few entries about German fandom, but the animexx article for example makes it sound like mexx is a fanfiction archive. Well, it has an archive. But it also has archives for cosplays pictures, fanart and everything that has to do with anime... 

There also isn't anything about German conventions.

Hmm. In the spur of the moment I made an account with fanlore and now I’ll have to figure out how to edit a wiki....
