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.
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! InvisibleFriend 17:57, 3 March 2007 (EST)
Chris: you are writing about the most fascinating group of people I've encountered in a long time. I could spend all day reading about M Lloyd, SaBean MoreL, Judith Morel, Michael Sugar, Bill Rotsler, Lee Hoffman and Frank Wu and his crazy movie. and all the people you've known. Don't think me supercillious for saying that I really think you should write a book about this group of people. I eagerly await your next entry! InvisibleFriend 22:15, 22 March 2007 (EDT)
