Fansites, Forums, & other Webpage Articles

When creating articles on forums, fansites, or other webpages, remember that Wikipedia has three notability requirements for these types of articles. These requirements are: 1. The content itself has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent of the site itself. 2. The website or content has won a well known and independent award. 3. The content is distributed via a site which is both well known and independent of the creators. While a particular website need not meet all of these requirements, it should meet at least one of them.
