There are so many Fancruft pages which have been permitted (probably through omission) to remain on Wikipedia. Especially Star Wars Extended universe style articles. This creates a sort of hypocrisy upon a vote for deletion for any marginally encyclopedic topic, especially more fancruft. People will eventually say "look you got all this other garbage in this wiki why not let my article stay?" I'm not sure what to do but I suggest we take a look at reviewing fancruft pages and deleting some.
