categorizing zine covers

We don't have a guideline for how to categorize images, but it looks like we need one, especially for zine categories where there are sometimes more images than pages. I think the category pages look better when images are categorized only under their fandoms--images are less likely to overwhelm a fandom category page than the major zine categories. Thoughts?--æþel 04:31, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Isn't that what we've been doing all along? I only add the main category when there is no fandom category, when the main category doesn't have an example of this kind of image yet or if the main category has very few pages and can only benefit from any additional information.

Well, I thought that's what we were doing, but now there are a lot of single-fandom zine covers in the Newsletter category. --æþel 16:43, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
I hadn't noticed. ^^° Then I agree, these so far inofficial guidelines should be spelled out somewhere. --Doro 19:10, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
They're probably ones I put there. "single-fandom zine covers" -- is that inside art? Is that what shouldn't be there? I'm confused. --Mrs. Potato Head 20:20, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
It's images that already have a fandom category. Doesn't matter if it's inside art or a cover. --Doro 21:30, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Will you point me to an example of a newlsetter image that's right and then one that's wrong? --Mrs. Potato Head 21:46, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Actually, I don't think any images of newsletter zines should be in the Newsletter category, since there should be a fandom category for everything, including multifandom zines.--æþel 22:04, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
To be honest, there's a lot about all these category/fandom organization subjects I don't understand. This is one of them. :-( --Mrs. Potato Head 23:05, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
I added a section on zine images to Help:Zines and plan to adapt it for the Help:Managing files page if it looks okay.--æþel 02:44, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
