The note at the bottom of the main description says that this is only for "examples of the fandom as a whole disregarding an event". Yet there are entries which admit to being extremely controversial. SO, should we delete these entries or change the note on the main page?

My own Fanon Discontinuity list:

  1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
  2. Paper Mario: Sticker Star
  3. Spartacus: War of the Damned (Vengeance ended just fine for me)
  4. Star vs. the Forces of Evil Season 2 (wasn't as fun as Season 1 which had an adequate ending)

I don't have to Discontinuity Seasons 5 and above of Winx Club coz they're already non-canon to the Cinelume dub which I'm loyal to

Does anyone else think we should create a non-YMMV version of this trope for specific examples of fan works that ignore canon events? To use an example, while some Avatar: The Last Airbender fans declare Fanon Discontinuity on the comics, while many others disagree, so it's a case of YMMV. However, in The Stalking Zuko Series the author explicitly states that she doesn't like The Promise or consider it canon, and specifically contradicts it in a few ways (most notably the fic being a Zutara story), so while people's opinions may vary on the author's decision, it's a fact that she refuses to acknowledge the comics.

Is there a term for fanon that is written partway through a work's run cycle, then debunked when that work continues and the canon takes it in another direction entirely?

The term is "Jossed".

Also see "Fan-Disliked Explanation" and "Continuation" under "Alternate Universe Fic".

The main page is Fanon Discontinuity but the subpages are just Discontinuity. What gives?

Would an inversion of this be canon discontinuity that fanon considers canon? And are their any examples after this?

That would be Fanon + Canon Discontinuity.

From the page linked: "This is an audience reaction trope about a fan response to works of fiction. It is not a place to get into a discussion about claims that people make about history."

The current folder listing of the archived tales doesn't work. It's redirected like this:

and so on, when actually I think it was intended to be like this:

emphasis on the slash after the "Fanon Discontinuity" topic.

Care to fix that please? I tried to edit the page, and it sends me to uncanney valley, where I'd rather not do anything, so I'd probably end up screwing the page.

The current page quote doesn't really describe this trope that well, being more a joke about Comic Book Guy treating his comics as Serious Business rather than providing an example of a person refusing to talk about a Dork Age or a bad sequel or pretending it never happened.
