Category: Bike Zine

hello Sophie, one question: is A Girl and Her Bike a bike zine? cause there is a category "Bike Zines". best, --Victoria Neuman (talk) 06:33, 2 July 2018 (PDT)

Thanks for highlighting Victoria Newman, it's actually more of a personal zine. She does reference bikes but it's not the main topic. Slafayette (talk) 09:45, 2 July 2018 (PDT)


Hi Sophie, thanks for editing! I just upgraded your admin privileges. Jenna (talk) 14:14, 2 July 2018 (PDT)

Thanks Jenna - I had some time so have been adding info & sorting some of the links. Glad to help! Slafayette (talk) 14:16, 2 July 2018 (PDT)


Hi Slafayette, you are doing great work here! I have one question, do you not think it could be redundant to create a category for "Places" and then a category for, say "Africa", and then have another subsequent category for "Zines from Africa"? Having done a great deal of the sorting and categorizing of zines and submissions here, I'll share with you that most contributors don't bother putting any categories - that's something admin people come and do later, and my concern is that 3 levels of category for one zine from Africa is making a more confusing and dense layer of categorization, as well as more work. Most of the people I use to work with here are gone, and I see admins come and go, and so I personally strive for as much simplicity as possible. I hope this makes sense and doesn't offend cause you're doing so much and I don't want to be discouraging! Keep up the good work! InvisibleFriend (talk) 01:20, 4 July 2018 (PDT)
