I loved creating new pages on Fanlore. It's fun! Almost addictive! It's a nice feeling to look at a page you made, and in most cases even the research was fun. Fanlore was shiny and sparkling, so in my enthusiasm I joined the Wiki committee.

Looking back, I've only created one page that I wanted to since February. I made some gardening edits, and I participated in discussions that can become unexpectedly complicated, but that thing that originally made me fall in love with Fanlore: almost nothing.

It's probably because Wiki keeps me busy: all the time I had to write Fanlore pages before now goes into organizing stuff (and not enough - ugh, I don't like testing.) Being on Wiki is fun sometimes, but it's much much harder to put aside for a moment when you're not in the mood. I don't want to become less enthusiastic about Fanlore! But now when I think about it my first thought is "work", not "fun", and that's a problem.

Solution: ...wait for the summer holidays and make more Fanlore pages then? Wait until we have more chats, that I probably won't have time to attend? Idk. Or get a time turner. Or a TARDIS. That would also be very helpful with exams, come to think of it. Yes, definitely a time machine.

I sometimes feel guilty because I wander about Fanlore making pages, then flit off to something else. But the secret to working on Fanlore...do what makes you happy and you'll keep doing it.

No, do them whenever you feel like it. There is always more work to do and if you wait for all the work to be done, then you won't ever get to have fun again. Don't do that! Seriously, making Fanlore pages is what I do when I'm stressed or in need of some relaxing fun and if I have to choose between that and and answering that mail, I'll make the Fanlore page. Strangely enough, most of the time that gives me enough energy to do the work that needs to be done as well. :)
