I really liked the article in Loserdom on Irish fanzines and, as well, the article on A New Clear Threat. I hope you might consider writing articles on some of these zines for Zine Wiki! InvisibleFriend 16:40, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

hey invisible friend! yeh i think we will do it for this website - itll just take a little rewriting, thanks for suggestion, e

No problem, I look forward to your articles. Happy editing! InvisibleFriend 07:02, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Thanks for bringing on the Irish zine listings, this info is great! dan10things 12:21, 27 April 2007 (EDT)

Early Irish Fanzines

Hi Eugene. The article on Early Irish Fanzines is great and really interesting. InvisibleFriend 06:49, 16 May 2007 (EDT)


Hi Eugene. I noticed the description you wrote for "Freesheets", which is great. I've created a category for you to list all the freesheets under: Category:Freesheet. I hope you will find it useful! InvisibleFriend 03:07, 18 July 2007 (EDT)


I've nominated a couple of articles for deletion and I'd be very interested in your opinion, whether pro or con. The articles are Featherproof books, Zach Dodson and My Pencil Lead Broke. If you could please leave your comments on the respective discussion pages of these articles, then we can all decide if the articles should stay or go. Thanks a lot Eugene!

Hi Eugene, First of all, thanks so much for you input on the pages up for deletion. Your involvement is appreciated! Second, I have a technical problem that I wondered if you could help with. You've uploaded a lot of zine covers, so I thought you might know what to do. I've uploaded several covers but I don't have a photoshop or an illustrator programme and so all the files are too large and I can't resize them. Is there anything I can do about that? Thanks for any help you can give me, I appreciate it! InvisibleFriend 21:45, 10 September 2007 (EDT)

Thank You!

Thanks SO much Eugene, I appreciate your help immensely! I have deleted the old, large size covers I uploaded. I was tryijg to put the cover on the Bleeding Swans page, and couldn't seem to manage to do it, but then all of a sudden it worked - but then I noticed that you were here, and that it was you that had actually done it! So, thanks a lot for that too!

I think your idea is a very good one. I will delete any older files that you resize, and I'll keep an eye on the new uploading of images so that I can see what you're doing and keep up with you as you resize them. Does that sound like a good plan? Let me know, and again, my very sincere thanks for your help! InvisibleFriend 04:23, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

I noticed you resized the Aunt Franne cover, so thanks are in order once again, Eugene! At the risk of seeming picky, I wanted to ask if it would be possible to make a couple of the covers you did previously just a tiny bit bigger? They are Femme Flicke, The Burning Times and Bleeding Swans. Of course I know this isn't absolutely necessary and I wouldn't want them very much bigger, just an eighth of an inch, or two eighths. Obviously this isn't a high priority, but if you did ever have an extra minute or two, I would be very grateful. Thanks again! InvisibleFriend 23:05, 21 September 2007 (EDT)
Thanks so much for resizing those covers Eugenepunk. You are right though, there is too much loss of clarity and the covers are even blurrier than before! I didn't think of the fact that you'd need the original jpeg to do this from, which is of course true, thanks for explaining that. What I did was to upload the originals again, so if you wouldn't mind trying one more time, even though it is a bother I know, I will be so thankful. The size you made them was perfect by the way! Sorry to be such a bother Eugenepunk. I really do appreciate all your assistance. InvisibleFriend 05:01, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

Hi Eugenepunk, I just saw that you've resized the covers and even put them on the pages. Thanks so much, they look absolutely great!

It's interesting what you wrote about the difference between hardcore zines and the earlier punk zines. Here in North America, it wasn't the case that the hardcore zines were more professional, for the most part, at least in the 1990's. Maybe that's something that has been happening more in the 2000's? It seems to me that as punk was more widely accepted in the 2000's, punk and hardcore zines, like Punk Planet, got more professional, and certainly there was more interest from publishers to do books with people like Aaron Cometbus and other punk zinesters. Is this what you were thinking of? I've been adding some new categories recently and I've just been trying to go through all the zines to add these categories. I just added "Category:Perzine"; so far I've looked through all the zines up to the letter 'G' to make sure I haven't left any out. As you might imagine, this takes a long time and there are a lot of perzines. Someone else created "Category:Vegan" and I've tried to include all the zines I could find on that topic. There wasn't as many, so I could just do a search for them. which made that easy. Also there's the new "Category:Goth" for any goth zines that are added and "Category:Hacking and Phreaking" for any zines about computer hacking and phone 'phreaking'. I'll try to post notices for everyone from now on regarding the new categories.If you add a bunch of zines on a specific topic that isn't covered we can add a new category for them too. Thanks again Eugene! InvisibleFriend 16:25, 22 September 2007 (EDT)
