=Request for Removal of Quotations=

So in December someone did a redirect on this page and there doesn't seem to be a way to revert the edit. Does that mean all the discussion that previously was here has been lost? What a bummer! [[User:Jerianne|Jerianne]] 15:59, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Anyway, I have been contacted by the editor of this [[Conscious_Defect|Conscious Defect zine]], who has requested we remove the quotes from that page. He does not give permission for the quotes to be used on this site and believes that including them is a violation of his copyright. He stated in an email to me that the quotes came from a zine that he made for a few friends, and he does not want to have his writing published online. Because we never had a consensus on how to handle such requests (see [[ZineWiki:Deletion_Policy_discussion]]), I am sharing this info here for comment. My opinion is that including the quotations is fair use under copyright law; however, I am willing to remove the quotations (which are not cited / sourced anyway) from the page out of respect for his request. The page also included two cover scans, which he requested be removed. I removed these images, in accordance with [[ZineWiki:Content_guidelines]].

hello Jerianne, hello everybody - I would like to suggest the [[St. Patrick's Zine Library]] to be the featured article of '''March'''. I know it is a quite fresh article, but fore sure someone is planing to open the library again somewhere, according to the ''regular opening hours''. Part of the installation (on the 17th of March) is a computer to browse background information via ZineWiki. I guess bevor this date there will be some more new zines and articles added to this network;-) --[[User:Silent service|Silent service]] 22:41, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

:Hi! Yes, I've done a couple of things - if there are only two zines of the same title and they were published in different decades, I'll use the date, such as [[Bizarre (1950s)]]. If they were published in different countries, you can use the country,such as [[Oz (UK)]], If there are 3 titles, I use the editors name, like with [[Chaos (Miske)]]. I'm personally going to stick to using the editors name from now on, because there's really no way of knowing for sure if, for example, there were actually two zines called "Oz" published in the UK, in which case I'll have to go to all the trouble of changing it! I used the editor's name for ''Chaos'' zine because even though I didn't research it, I could imagine there might have been a few zines called "Chaos". So that's probably your best choice.

Recommendations for Featured Articles

People asked me about the "Featured Article of the Month" and if it still did not change. Yes it gets a bit boring, when you stop by regularly. More important: It also gives the impression that nothing is happening on ZineWiki. I think the article can be anything, even about a very unrecognised zine, aslong as there is a cover. Zines are specialized. An unpopular zine is ok to be featured. It is not neccesary that an featured article had 10.000 visitors already. A suggestion: Random choice with a little sorting. with kind regards--Silent service 22:21, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

hello Jerianne, hello everybody - I would like to suggest the St. Patrick's Zine Library to be the featured article of March. I know it is a quite fresh article, but fore sure someone is planing to open the library again somewhere, according to the regular opening hours. Part of the installation (on the 17th of March) is a computer to browse background information via ZineWiki.

zine with the same title (duplicate)

hello everybody. what do you do when there is a zine with the same title as an already existing article? are there some existing examples? any suggestions?--Silent service 21:56, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi! Yes, I've done a couple of things - if there are only two zines of the same title and they were published in different decades, I'll use the date, such as Bizarre (1950s). If they were published in different countries, you can use the country,such as Oz (UK), If there are 3 titles, I use the editors name, like with Chaos (Miske). I'm personally going to stick to using the editors name from now on, because there's really no way of knowing for sure if, for example, there were actually two zines called "Oz" published in the UK, in which case I'll have to go to all the trouble of changing it! I used the editor's name for Chaos zine because even though I didn't research it, I could imagine there might have been a few zines called "Chaos". So that's probably your best choice.

You are welcome! Untitled (Editor) sounds good. InvisibleFriend 23:05, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
