Heya, I think I may have created a duplicate entry for the B7 zine: Down and Out. I found an earlier one here after I did mine. Even though I check before creating a new page, the search engine is hit and miss. Morgandawn

The search engine sucks. I just redirected the one that didn't have the full name and merged the stuff.--Ratcreature 06:11, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Hey! Thank you for editing the zine listings! Don't worry, though, I'm taking note of the broken links I'm leaving behind; they won't be there for long. --ChristyCorr 19:23, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Ah okay, I'll leave them then, if you have a system I don't want to mess it up.--Ratcreature 19:30, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
No, no, that's not what I meant at all! Feel free to edit; I just meant to assure you that I'm not just disregarding broken links! *laughs* --ChristyCorr 19:36, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

You've seen more pages than I—for consistency's sake, should lists in pages like TACS be '[[Title|Title - Author]]' or '[[Title]] - Author'? --ChristyCorr 04:00, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

There is no real consistency in the lists, because they don't have all the same info. Eg. I started out many as a simple link list to just find zines, and then later started to add more info, like year, publisher and so on to make them more usable. Generally I tend to leave the author, because adding info that is not there to a list is always tedious work when you collate from other pages, so if the extra info like author is there already, I avoid removing it from the page.--Ratcreature 07:46, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

I adore you. You added the Donaldist zine info. I loved the fandom when I was a child in Germany. we need more international fan history.--Morgandawn 01:11, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm a long time DONALD member, though not very active. (I've only been to one Kongress.) That has been my first fandom. I still have a subscription to the zine, and a shelf full of issues...--Ratcreature 01:36, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

ratcreature, would you make a disambiguation page for Power Play? There's the Professionals story and the Sentinel zine. And Powerplay is a Blake's 7 zine. And where are the directions for making one so I can learn? Mrs. Potato Head 00:23, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea if there is a specific tutorial. All you need to do is to put in {{Disambiguation}} for the Disambiguation template and then put the links below.--Ratcreature 00:40, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Oh my god, Donaldism is such a cool article! I had no idea anything like that existed. Is there a term for these other types of issue/canon/not-just-episodes guides? I don't see a problem with including them on the episode guide page, but will people think to look there? Franzeska 17:50, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Well afaik they tend to be just called such-and-such index, like Carl Barks Index for example. That's why I linked "series index" to episode guide.--RatCreature 17:56, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for all the help :) Cesy 15:09, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

You're welcome, I'm happy to help out when I can.--RatCreature 15:14, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Brilliant! you posted thefourthvine's fabulous paean to fannish squee on the Twilight page! I've already quoted that to a friend once, and am thrilled it's here. --msilverstar 05:39, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Actually User:Anenko added that.--RatCreature 07:55, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Ok i'll try captializing the titles -user:ponyboy

Thanks for the help! user:Robin K.

To hopefully cheer you up. 15:42, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
