K-rist, so this is what Gunderloy's old Factsheet Five mutated into. This is a massive amount of effort and undertaking you've helped to create here, and if there is anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to shout out, as I can appreciate what has gone into this. Ended up doing a revised edition for Steve Sneyd's Iron Moon listings a little while back - took it from mimeograph (Que? It's a duplicator, by any other name) into the 20th Century. Will see if there is anything I can raid out of there to add to your listings. So many names from the past - but then I pre-date GenX, Bob Dobbs, Sub-Geni and a whole host of other fun-lovin' loony-tunes.

Right, I'm off to wallow in nostalgia, and see about maybe putting together a proper old skool zine - you know - with a typewriter, scissors, Letraset for the titles, and rubberoid glue. Lots and lots of glue. You can never have enough <sniff> glue...

Don't know how this works. I thought I made some pages for my zine, but they are gone, whatever…

one was under the name of Once Upon a time… puerto rico and the other etsetera. etsetera is still around somewhere, but not on the listings. write to: or let me know were they are

Hey, Thanks for considering me putting up a new page for myself. It seemed likea greatidea. Thank once more -Erick

That sounds great!

Hi Dan, thanks so much for your offer! I very recently got a new computer with Windows XP and I really don't have any programs to speak of. I don't have "Photoshop" or "Illustrator", or any programs like that, so I can't resize my own scans. Eugenepunk resized a bunch for me, which was really great, but I don't want to impose on him each time I want to put up a new image on Zine Wiki! So, any help or any ideas you can offer would be really appreciated Dan, and thanks so much for your offer! It sounds great! InvisibleFriend 01:54, 12 September 2007 (EDT)

Hi Dan, i am a contributer to the Hey 5 zine tumblr, i was wondering if you could link it somewhere on your front page


Re:New Administrators

Hi Dan, thanks for letting me know. Now we can all fight over Zine Wiki policy! ; ) I'm just kidding. InvisibleFriend 18:07, 11 December 2007 (EST)

Thanks Dan for making me an administrator!--Eugenepunk 03:04, 12 December 2007 (EST)

==Hey Dan. We were wondering why there's a message at the top of every page - Warning: Missing argument 2 for w/ParserFunctionsLanguageGetMagic() in /homepages/33/d924998007/htdocs/wiki/extentions/ParserFunctions/ParserFunctions.php on line 144 It seems to be on everyones' computer - does it also appear on yours?InvisibleFriend 03:16, 2 March 2008 (EST)

Yeah, Alan's working on it. Apparently the server was hosting ZineWiki was hacked and it's not an easy fix. I know, it sucks! dan10things 13:12, 3 March 2008 (EST)

delete Template:Reflist ?

Can you please delete Template:Reflist? I was going to add a few related templates, but I assumed they wouldn't solve the "Unknown extension tag "references"" error. --EarthFurst 23:24, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Dan,

I had added Janet, a zine collaboration I'm a part of. It disappeared, so I've added the link again. I wonder if it seemed to violate copyright, so it was removed? Not's all our work. - Janet

Putting pictures on a page

Hi dan,

this is josh m. from noise noise noise. hows it going? hey, im trying to put pictures up on my pages, but i can't figure out how to do it. Help.

Interested in an article about Alaska zines?

hey dan,

i was wondering, would zinewiki need/be interested in an article about Alaska Zines? Something that could go at the front pages (if I'm understanding the "feature" thing correctly!)


A couple Crap Hound corrections...

Hello! I just made several corrections and additions to the Crap Hound page and have two small requests for changes I can't figure out how to make myself: Could you correct the heading title to read "Crap Hound" (it's currently one word) and move it from the Washington zine list to the Oregon zine list? Thank you! xc

Not Seeing The Pageviews

Hi Dan, I just wanted to pop in and ask you about the pageviews. Ahem, not that I constantly look at my own page's views, but occasionally I do, and I noticed something... It's been at the exact same number for months on end. So I finally decided to ask some friends to post, just to see if it changed... and it didn't. So I was wondering if there's something wrong with the page counters, or whatever. It is not a super big deal, but I try to use the ZW pages to promote the zines, etc.. etc.. and I just wanted to make sure the stats were correct. Also, did you happen to see my post from a while back, about doing an article on a brief history of Alaska zines? Let me know, alright? take care,man----Josh

POC Zine Project introduction

Hi Dan,

My name is Daniela and I am the founder of the POC Zine Project. I recently created this page for POCZP:

Will you please let me know if I need to change anything? I tried to follow the formatting protocol but this is my first wiki entry, so I appreciate any tips :)

Also, I'm having trouble finding a page on this wiki that lists zines by people of color. Does that exist, and if it doesn't, can I help create one?

You can reach me at Thanks again!


I searched the ZineWiki site looking for WikiStress levels and it appears that they are not available here.
Wikipedia has them available under Creative Commons licence.

How do I set that up here? --MikeNobody =/\= 17:27, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I don't think this would be very useful on ZineWiki. dan10things (talk) 15:40, 27 May 2015 (PDT)

Affiliated with Wikipedia?

Hi Dan, I found your discussion through the "About Us/Contact" page, and I'm hoping you can answer my question. I want to use the "Mail Art" page as a resource for a school essay, and of course we can't use Wikipedia. I see that ZineWiki is powered by Wikimedia, but would it officially be considered an extension of Wikipedia?

When I tried leaving a note on this discussion, I saw I had to login. I tried using my Wikipedia account and it didn't work, so I set up a new account for ZineWiki. This kind of leads me to believe ZineWiki is not an extension of Wikipedia.

Thank you for your time! --Cannolicreations 19:10, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

This response is way too late, but we aren't affiliated with Wikipedia, ZineWiki is it's own independent project created by zinesters and fans of zines. dan10things (talk) 15:41, 27 May 2015 (PDT)

Search not working?

Hi Dan - Anna Culbertson at San Diego State University here. I'm looking to add an entry under zine libraries for our collection, but I'm finding that the search function required in the first step for creating a new page doesn't seem to be working. Do you know what's up? Thanks!

Hi Anna. :) I'm not Dan, but you could make a redlink here (just put the name of your zine library/collection in double-square-brackets) and then click through to create the new page? Like this: San Diego State University Zine Library - if you click through you should be able to create that page, so of course you can create whatever page you want. :)
But yeah, I agree that the search is broken, I found that out too yesterday. :S --Cassolotl (talk) 01:28, 7 July 2015 (PDT)

Special:RecentChanges is impossible to patrol because of all the new users

Special:RecentChanges is full of redlinky usernames who I'm pretty sure are not real people. I'm sure it's just bots and spammers, because there's several per minute and their usernames all fit a particular formula. If we could get some kind of thingy up in here that prevents non-humans from joining that would be really useful! --Cassolotl (talk) 01:28, 7 July 2015 (PDT)

Art Zine page

Well, I think I screwed up. I tried to edit/add a new category of Art Zine so that folks could read a explanation/definition, tag their zines and see a list, much like compzine but it doesn't link and the tag doesn't work. AND I am unable to delete the page I created. Is there someone who understands the system better than myself that can help me out? InkWell Sept 9, 2015 at 5:45PM or so.
