Visual Art Category

How about the category Visual Art? Mrs. Potato Head 12:28, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm torn on this one. Some doujinshi are entirely fanfiction, and thus not visual art. But then again, nearly all doujinshi which will ever be documented here will be manga-style and will fit the category. If it doesn't apply to 1/2% of entries, should we add it anyway? I'm for it. While we're talking about categories, does the Fiction Writing category apply just to written fiction, or to manga/comic-style storytelling as well? -- Kylara 16:48, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Print Media Category

I saw the Category:Print Media was removed from this template, however, this template is specifically for printed doujinshi. When "doujinshi" is shared in other forms, such as online as a webcomic or in English, they are usually presented differently and this template won't apply (especially in regards to the terms "circle" and "doujinka"); Template:Fanwork would probably be of better use for non-print "doujinshi" webcomics. As such, I will be re-adding the Print Media category. If there is a conflict with non-print doujinshi, I would like to see it. -- Kylara 05:41, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

I think you missed the policy change? There was an announcement that breadcrumbs wouldn't be done anymore.--RatCreature 07:07, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
the new policy was announced by the wiki committee here:http://fanlore.dreamwidth.org/25971.html --RatCreature 07:09, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, it seems I did. I checked the front page for news on policy before editing -- there's an announcement up now, but there wasn't when I edited. I didn't think a policy announcement would be made just on DW and not on the site before implementation, so I'll check for that in the future. And I'll change the template back now. -- Kylara 18:12, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the policy proclamations sometimes aren't the most transparent.--RatCreature 18:15, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
