You're very welcome. Zine Wiki is a great site. By the way, I liked Tablet a lot. It was a great publication. InvisibleFriend 14:19, 2 March 2007 (EST)
What would you like to see improved/changed at the Unlikely 2.0 article? JonathanPenton 15:35, 10 March 2007 (EST)
Oh, it just read more like an advertisement and an encyclopedia type of listing (which what we are sorta aiming at). I'm not sure about the goals/mission statement part, it seems wierd to list that in a Wiki listing. Which should probably be more focused on what has been published. But not biggie, it's more a tone/feel thing than an actual problem with the listing. dan10things 15:54, 10 March 2007 (EST)
- Groovy. Since the goals substitute for an aesthetic, which appears to be discussed in many of your good articles, I think they warrant mention, but I'm happy to bring it way down. I'll do some more writing on what has published, and try to work on tone. I did plan to address those red links I left, but I can add them back in as I do articles. Do you guys have a policy page on what all is covered by "independent media?" I see you're doing e-zines and zinesters, but is something like Spuyten Duyvil appropriate, or too mainstream? Are thumbnails of screencaps acceptable? JonathanPenton 18:28, 10 March 2007 (EST)
Re: Zine Wiki
Regarding the discussion at the 'other' wiki: Dan, you're brilliant! InvisibleFriend 07:27, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Thanks, I'm not sure it will have an effect on the outcome, but at least I can present an alternative point of view that will go down in the permanent record and just maybe change a few of the Wiki editor's opinions a little. I the big picture, if ZineWiki is deleted, I know it will be added again in six months when we get a couple articles written about it. dan10things 16:52, 24 March 2007 (EDT)
Re: Irish zines
Hey Dan! thanks for nice words re irish zines, im currently tryin to get an article done about them, there really used to be loads of them especially so it'll take a while, talk again, Eugenepunk
Re: Hakim Bey
I understand your concerns about the Hakim Bey article. While I find him repugnant, his writings have been widely circulated within the zine community (as well as in scholarly journals and textbooks!). I included links to some of his critics in order to make people aware of the controversy, his past associations, and his alleged behavior -which tends to be glossed-over by some of his adoring fans. I think it's important to include Hakim Bey in the history of zines for the same reason that a history of the Beat Generation needs to include information on Allen Ginsburg (another dirty old man).

RE: Welcome back!
Hey dan10things, thank you for the welcome. I am very glad that ZineWiki is back and that all the old data wasn’t lost to the ether. While the momentum may have slowed, I am sure that it will pick up again. I was never particularly au fait on the editing side, and a lot of the information I put up was limited, I am keen to bring more depth to the Aussie content over the coming months. belcoboy 10:40, 16 February 2009 (AEST)
Hi Dan! Thank you for saying "hi" and welcoming me back! I was happy to see Zine Wiki again and very relieved that all the hard work we did over such a long period of time seems to all be intact and preserved, and ready to read. I was sure it must have been gone forever. I had written Alan but never received a response. I'm very glad you've decided to pick up where he left off and continue this very worthwhile project.

events calendar on Main Page?
ZineWiki suggestion: LJ
Wandered across zinedistro.org and created article at Zine Distro. I noticed their latest tweet (in March) says "Does anyone want to take over the site?" so I thought I'd mention this to 3 people with zinewiki Bureaucrat status. --EarthFurst 18:09, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
- Interesting, I'm checking it out right now. Bureaucrat status, hah! dan10things 19:56, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Hope you're around zinewiki this week, because will probably be more spammers that need to be blocked. Now there is a spam page by Darnell67SchneiderG and another spam page by WCorrina57Carr. --EarthFurst 12:10, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Also, can external link search be added to zinewiki? Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:LinkSearch . Could use it to check if any articles still have link to specific spammer websites. --EarthFurst 12:21, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
- The spam level is insane right now. I asked Jerianne to see if Denny (who runs the server/setup end of ZineWiki) if we can put in an extra level of security like adding scrambled letters to a box to sign up for a new account. I'm pretty sure the accounts and pages are getting created automatically with a program.
- I'll also see if there is a way to easily search for these pages, good idea! dan10things 16:54, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
