In SG-1 Fandom

To answer a question on the page. The LJ community sg1_beyond_otp[1] was founded in October, 2004; there are early links to Katie M's "In the Wrong Story"[2] and Splash the Cat's masterlist/recs list[3].--Ari 21:44, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Overlap with OT3?

I worry that we're duplicating efforts with this page and OT3. --Msilverstar 00:44, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Not Everyone is a Fan of Threesomes

Can someone recheck the cited quote? Text seems to have dropped out in the next-to-last sentence.--Greenygal 02:00, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

rummaged through the vast attic at my disposal and fixed the quote.  :-) --Mrs. Potato Head 02:32, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! --Greenygal 02:52, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

threesome vs. het vs. slash

someone on twitter is complaining that this page labeled an F/M/M ship as het. I am not sure this page actually says that; the white collar example is ambiguously phrased. Is there meta about whether mixed gender threesomes are het, slash, etc.?--aethel (talk) 21:56, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

If by "meta" you mean complaints about polyships being treated as adjuncts to het/slash/femslash ships (though rarely the last one), then yes, but it'd be a hard thing to dig up specifically, as it tends to be in individual comments on larger topics. It would also probably depend on the period - pre-2000 and even a bit early 2000s, that happened a lot more than it does now that OT3 et al are terms people are more comfortable with. If you mean meta explaining that those ships are het, slash, or femslash, you won't tend to get meta like that from polyshippers themselves. It tends to be seen as a fourth thing (or a fifth thing, if you're counting Gen). Idk if that helps? -the old briar pipe (talk) 22:10, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
They might have been talking about an infobox on a threesome pairing page. There were a couple that said "het" and others that said "het and slash". I went through and changed them to to just m/m/f etc. --sparc 23:13, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh, that's probably it. Thanks, sparcicle! <3 -the old briar pipe (talk) 23:22, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
"Het and slash" used to be a common way to describe m/m/f pairings because they have an m/f element and an m/m element. If someone is strictly a slasher or someone who wouldn't touch anything with slash in it, that's something a reader would have wanted to know. --Doro (talk) 20:50, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that used to happen, and it tended to cause complaints within the parts of the community that are specifically focused on polyshipping, because that kind of description is pairing-focused (specifically slash community focused, I've mostly found). So I think it's a good idea that sparcicle removed it as a descriptor directly on those pages, to avoid rekindling old complaints. -the old briar pipe (talk) 00:11, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
