Hi again. I read your comment on the Main Talk Page regarding the confusion that may arise because some categories are pluralized and some aren't. My thinking when creating some of the categories is that they function as lists, i.e. "This is a list of science fiction fanzines", hence the use of a plural category, i.e. "[[Category:Science Fiction Zines]]"; the same for zines from specific regions and zines from specific dates, i.e. "This is a list of zines released in the 1990's", hence [[Category:1990's publications]] There are a lot of zines contained in these last two categories especially, so I wouldn't want to reassign them all to a new category. However, if you'd like to rename some sections, such as "Author", Artist", "Term" and so on,  and make these plural categories, please feel free because I do understand your point. Many categories were already created before I arrived, such as "Author", so I didn't take it upon myself to make changes to these. However, to recategorize a section like "Zine" will take quite some time! I know of no way to do so except one by one. If you do decide to do so, please let everyone know so that they can assign the correct category to any new articles. Thanks! [[User:InvisibleFriend|InvisibleFriend]] 17:57, 3 March 2007 (EST)

Revision as of 23:01, 3 March 2007

I'm trying to increase the number of science fiction fanzines on ZineWiki. There are dozens of them (probably a couple of hundred) and many more that I've never seen. You'll see a lot of the same names pop up over and over due to the fact that the community is getting smaller. Chris

Hi Chris, welcome to ZineWiki. Thanks for your time adding to the science fiction zines. We've been looking for more people that can dedicate themselves to certain genres or eras. =) Alan Fall of Autumn 14:04, 3 February 2007 (EST)
Hi Chris, I've established a category for science fiction zines for you (Category:Science Fiction Zines). I hope this is helpful.
