Hey all,
When I saw that TFF had been resurrected, I jumped at the chance of being active again. So, like the title says, you missed a BIG fandom, nameley: worm!

Worm is a popular webcomic which is dark but VERY well written. I really love it and it has a HUUUUGE xover potential as well.

I posted the topic here, but I'm not convinced this is the right place, so if I'm wrong, I apologize and request that it is transferred to the right place by the mods!

Edit:
I am a COMPLETE blind idiot. I only now saw the suggestions forum. Do i delete this and repost it there or, will a mod transfer it?

Resurrected? When did it die? We've been here and pretty active for quite a while. More than a decade as far as I recall.

Why does Worm need its own separate section exactly?

First of all, it's not a web comic, it's a web novel/serial. Yes it's good, but that alone isn't really enough to warrant making an entire section for it. You seem to have the cause and effect backwards, having a dedicated section for it is the result of a lot of fanfiction for it being posted, it won't cause more of it to be written.

It just doesn't have that much fanfiction, and it's not really huge. It barely has a cult following and is pretty niche. It has a fandom, but it's relatively under the radar and kind of an underground thing.

I really just don't think there's enough content to support it having its own section. It's just not big enough and would just end up being pretty sparse and relatively empty. A waste of space really.

It's also not 'missing'. We have a place where fanfiction about it goes, in the Books section. There already is Worm content there, there are a few threads and stories involving it. Just not enough to warrant it having its own separate area really.

Most of the stuff that has its own space is because of the sheer volume of content for particular franchises. Harry Potter got its own space because otherwise the Book section would have been 90% Harry Potter stuff for quite a while if it didn't have its own section.

The same goes for the areas revolving around other specific franchises. It's just that some of them are leftover from fandoms that have faded somewhat.

Ranma isn't as popular as it once was and doesn't have near as much content as it used too anymore, but there was a period of several years when the anime fanfiction section would have been 90% Ranma fanfics if it didn't have its own space.

As good as it is, Worm is in no danger of flooding the Books section of the forums with content to the point that it will overwhelm everything else there. That's kind of why some franchises have their own areas, to keep that from happening to the more general sections.
