Please note the Terms of use and Guidelines for fan art on this site before uploading any fan created content. This page does not modify, or imply any modification, to those terms, since it was not written by the creators of Erfworld.

Banon is rejected fanon. Banon pages may be left on the wiki, but they are not associated with Erfworld as a whole.

[edit] How to treat Banon material

Despite its nasty-sounding name, banon is not necessarily a stigmatic term. "Banon" constitutes material that is not, and never will be, an official part of Erfworld in any way, and that's about it.

Banon material does not need to be moved, truncated, or deleted unless the creators or administration determine that it must be. Speculative "what if" fan fiction is banon; however, it is still welcome on this wiki. Please do not attack banon pages, and do not be offended if fan material you create becomes banon.

[edit] Criteria for Banon

Forked up fanon pages which do not fit canon may become banon if those responsible for the material decide that the differences are irreconcilable. This should be considered a voluntary change by the creator(s) of the fan material in question, but in some cases the change should be self evident. For example, a short story about Bogroll's life as Parson's lackey after the Battle for Gobwin Knob is never going to be canon; thus, it does not belong in the forked up class. However, such material does not need to be removed, truncated, or deleted, unless it violates the Guidelines for fan art.

The creators and staff of erfworld.com reserve the right to move any fan material into the banon category at whim. This is not a disputable claim: material that has been moved to banon should remain there unless the banon state is revoked by someone of sufficient canonical authority.
