Talk:Closer (Star Trek vid)

Possibly this should be renamed to "Closer (vid)"? Or even "Closer (K/S vid)"? There's a show called The Closer, and a movie called Closer, both of which have at least a little fannish activity around them, and there's at least one other well-known vid to the same song (sisabet's Angel vid).--Arduinna 01:08, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree. Closer is now a disambiguation page that links here. -- Melina 01:18, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I should have read here first - I believe we discussed in earlier wiki stages about naming fanworks pages thus (with author etc), will put this on the naming conventions page. *runs off to create* --Hope 09:39, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

ana: I admit I don't understand why this page is is in the "press" category. It's been talked about in the press, but.... lots of things have. ...Hm, although I guess the "Closer went viral in 2006 and was discussed extensively online as an example of context collapse. " thing makes that relevant - the categorization might become more clear why it's there once it's not a stub anymore. Hope: It might just be worth putting a section on that page about its prominence in the press rather than cross-catting it, though.--anatsuno 11:54, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Seconded. The other entries in the "Press" category are (so far) all titles of articles published in mainstream media.--Aethel 16:19, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I agree. According to the description of the "Press" category this article appears to be miss categorized. Now an article published in mainstream media written about Closer would fit, but I would think it would have it's own page since it would most like include other fanworks not just Closer. I also have doubts about this article belonging in the "Perspectives on Fans" category too. --elgraves 23:40, 8 October 2008 (UTC)


It appears this vid was available to fans in 2003, according to one fan's comment. Does anyone know where? Is the 2004 date a reflection of it being shown in a larger venue, or was it shown at Shore Leave at a private setting? --MPH (talk) 20:58, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
