At the 1 April 2012 meeting we agreed on a number of points:

  1. It is not our place to decide what is canon and what is not.
  2. Whilst certain concepts are certainly 'canon' (i.e. Gandalf), many fall into a grey area.
  3. For those concepts that fall into this grey area, we should have a "Canonicity" section to explain the situation.
  4. We should scrap the "Non Canon" and "Disputed Canon" templates whilst leaving Template:Adaptation (which is well and truly non-canon).

We decided not to decide anything (apart from that) with so few in attendance. So what does everyone think?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  19:43, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Concerning nr. 3, my suggestion is that most short articles (e.g., Gorcrows) would not require such a section, as the intro sentence will give enough information concerning its status.--Morgan 23:00, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
So we get a grey area about a grey area: when does it not qualify for a section? --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:28, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
