Creepypasta

I’m basically wondering whether creepypasta should get its own entry, or if it should just be included under the Copypasta article.

For those who are wondering, creepypasta is basically short horror stories that are spread across the internet in the same way that copypasta is. An example would be The Holders series. While in its early days, creepypasta remained anonymous and confined to /x/, it soon became a way for writers to gain recognition via sites such as Creepypasta.com and The SCP Foundation. Later creepypasta also became longer, and began to resemble the traditional short story rather than the simpler rituals and urban legend-style paragraphs. (I’d know, because I’ve written a few myself.)

It is those later developments specifically that seem to separate creepypasta from copypasta, but I’m just wondering if you guys agree.
