For your consideration - I often will list other projects a zinester has been involved with, such as music projects, film projects, etc. Although zines are obviously the most important subject, I think that mentioning the overall impact any zine editor has had on the culture through different mediums makes a statement about the significance of zines as a cultural product, and their importance as a medium of choice for so many artists, musicians and filmmakers.InvisibleFriend 01:10, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Here's a question: What should our policy be on the detailing of submission guidelines, etc, within an article on a zine. For an example, see MoTHER (has words…). InvisibleFriend 01:43, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Ordering Categories

Wondering about the order categories should be in an article. Example: Green Zine is categories Zine, Zine Yearbook, New York Zines, 2000's publications, Perzine and Zines from the U.S.A. Perhaps categories should be sorted Zine, then subject (example: Perzine), then geographic origin (example: New York), then timeline (example: 2000's publications) and finally others (example: Zine Yearbook). --EarthFurst 21:16, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Not sure if this is the right place, but what can be done about getting Categories into a uniform methodology. For instance, some categories are plurals (Science Fiction Zines) and some are singulars (Artist, Zine, etc). It would seem that it would be much easier if one method or the other were chosen to be the Universal for the matter as a way of making it easier to edit.

I think there a various categories that should be changed from singular to plural. Example: Main Page includes "List of Distros" link that goes to Category:Distro which is a list of Distros (plural). I think category should be renamed to Category:Distros. There are various zinewiki categories that are plural (32 of the first 50 categories are plural). --EarthFurst 22:24, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
