You can try but I don't expect that you'll get much traction.

Well, to be honest, I'm not exactly sure what you asking here. Are you referring to some kind of group/communal geopolitical fan-fiction writing? Or just plain fan-fiction writing for preexisting fictional franchises/worlds?

Still, I don't think we have a sizable population that would participate in what you're looking for in this forum.

@tsarstepan,
Neither. I have created a world from scratch, and I am aware of the Cause I had done. What I need help in validating is Effect. Do the changes I had made meet my personal goal, or would I have to change them again? That is what I am investigating.

@MissouriRiver,
Okay Is Sour, but again for the benefit of a few Hopeless Ignoramuses (me), save us hours Googling and tell us what's a Worldbuilding

Forgive awful pun

@dalehileman,
Worldbuilding is the process of creating worlds for use in a fictional tale. Often used by science fiction writers, but really any genre can have its own taste of worldbuilding. Popular tales such as The Wizard of Oz and The Chronicles of Narnia were subject to worldbuilding by their authors. Today, many talented writers use their worldbuilding skills to create planets and galaxies and more for video games (such as The Elder Scrolls series, the Mass Effect series, and countless titles of both big budget and indie origin).

In other words, it's a very common and well-used process. Worldbuilding is a terrific exercise for aspiring writers.
