So in December someone did a redirect on this page and there doesn't seem to be a way to revert the edit. Does that mean all the discussion that previously was here has been lost? What a bummer! [[User:Jerianne|Jerianne]] 15:59, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

On July 12 (if I'm counting correctly) 219 accounts were created, while only five have made an edit yet. I am suspicious of most of the [http://www.zinewiki.com/Special:Log/newusers new accounts] mainly because of the volume. Been poking around RecentChanges trying to figure out who created some of the spam pages so they can (hopefully) be deleted. I'm specifically thinking about pages (that are presumably spam) both with "Gmail" in their title, but because they start with a "/", they cannot be viewed. They both clutter up the [[Special:AllPages]] page and include a 888 phone-number in their name. Spam pages are currently #17 and #18 in list of pages at Special:AllPages (right after [[.zap!!]]). --[[User:EarthFurst|EarthFurst]] ([[User talk:EarthFurst|talk]]) 15:43, 13 July 2018 (PDT)

:People asked me about the "Featured Article of the Month" and if it still did not change. Yes it gets a bit boring, when you stop by regularly. More important: It also gives the impression that nothing is happening on ZineWiki. I think the article can be anything, even about a very unrecognised zine, as long as there is a cover. Zines are specialized. An unpopular zine is ok to be featured. It is not necessary that an featured article had 10.000 visitors already. A suggestion: Random choice with a little sorting. with kind regards--[[User:Silent service|Silent service]] 22:21, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

hello Jerianne, hello everybody - I would like to suggest the [[St. Patrick's Zine Library]] to be the featured article of '''March'''. I know it is a quite fresh article, but fore sure someone is planing to open the library again somewhere, according to the ''regular opening hours''. Part of the installation (on the 17th of March) is a computer to browse background information via ZineWiki. I guess bevor this date there will be some more new zines and articles added to this network;-) --[[User:Silent service|Silent service]] 22:41, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

:Hi! Yes, I've done a couple of things - if there are only two zines of the same title and they were published in different decades, I'll use the date, such as [[Bizarre (1950s)]]. If they were published in different countries, you can use the country,such as [[Oz (UK)]], If there are 3 titles, I use the editors name, like with [[Chaos (Miske)]]. I'm personally going to stick to using the editors name from now on, because there's really no way of knowing for sure if, for example, there were actually two zines called "Oz" published in the UK, in which case I'll have to go to all the trouble of changing it! I used the editor's name for ''Chaos'' zine because even though I didn't research it, I could imagine there might have been a few zines called "Chaos". So that's probably your best choice.

== xZINECOREx ==

Zine librarians are making a metadata standard to help with cataloging zines. Please consider including a table with [[Xzinecorex|xZINECOREx]] metadata when you are adding or editing entries for zines on ZineWiki; it will help their efforts to create a zine union catalog (a combined catalog that describes the collections of multiple libraries, enabling better information sharing for zine library collections).

spam in 2018 July

On July 12 (if I'm counting correctly) 219 accounts were created, while only five have made an edit yet. I am suspicious of most of the new accounts mainly because of the volume. Been poking around RecentChanges trying to figure out who created some of the spam pages so they can (hopefully) be deleted. I'm specifically thinking about pages (that are presumably spam) both with "Gmail" in their title, but because they start with a "/", they cannot be viewed. They both clutter up the Special:AllPages page and include a 888 phone-number in their name. Spam pages are currently #17 and #18 in list of pages at Special:AllPages (right after .zap!!). --EarthFurst (talk) 15:43, 13 July 2018 (PDT)
