G-canon kinda implies that it is in some way canon, which it ain't. How's about we rename it G-fanon? After all, it's fanon not canon. - Snail 21:16, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Sorry, but I don't understand. First of all, G-canon is the term I read on HLP so using a different term would be pointless (I'm not inventing anything). Also, I'd like to remember that the article specifies that G-canon isn't V canon. We have several terms with the word canon on them (like "INF canon") which surely aren't connected to V. --- Mobius
    • I've rewritten the main page to clarify these discrepancies. However the GTI is most certainly not the NTF. - Goober5000 19:11, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
      • Does anyone actually use this term? It's interesting and kind of cool, but this seems like a case of trying to create the term rather than referring to something in broad use. General Battuta 03:14, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
        • It was used in a forum thread at least once. However I don't know if it was used more than that. :) Is there a page for "Blue Planet canon", "Inferno canon", "Derelict canon", etc.? If not, we could probably delete this page. - Goober5000 19:11, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
          • We do have the Derelict banner. That's the only thing similar. If we could get similar banners for the various continuities, that'd actually be really cool, since I think the Derelict banner looks great.General Battuta 22:19, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
            • I don't think Silent Threat: Reborn should need a banner. As far as I know, there hasn't been any campaigns based off of Reborn. And even if such is the case, if everyone knows it isn't canon, then it will never be canon, regardless of public opinion, especially since both Galemp and Goober denies that it's canon. I also think this page isn't necessary because the page applies to anything not from Volition. We'd have a page for all fanons including Inferno, Derelict, etc. Besides, the term is not used enough to constitute a reason for a page. SypheDMar 00:24, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
              • I think there's something to be said for using banners to sort the various continuities, though. Anyone looking at a model with an INFR1 tech description, for instance, probably starts wondering 'how the heck does relate to that 'GTF Ulysses' I was just reading about?' Category banners might be useful, and they look great. As for the issue of what continuities qualify, I think any fairly well-represented RELEASED campaign with a sizable modpack could apply. Inferno, for instance, is well-represented on the Wiki and could stand to have some organizing markers. General Battuta 01:58, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
