"Ye Editors" from Contact #2

Zined most often refers to the editor of a zine. It can also refer to the act of publishing a fan work in a zine.

Editor of a Zine

It is usually used for the person who selects the content, and sometimes edits it, as well as writing introductory material such as the table of contents and editorial. The editor might be the same person as the publisher (who prints the zine, and usually distributes it), or they might be different people.

The editor of the Star Wars zine Twin Suns laments in a letter to Jundland Wastes #3: "Being an editor means always having to say you're sorry."

An example of use: "...and whatever else Ye Eds manage to scrounge up..." [1]

Published in a ZIne

Fanworks can be posted online, published in a print zine, or not published at all.

An example of use: "Nom de Guerre and the Two Worlds trilogy (which I co-wrote with Texas Ranger, is slash and is going to be 'zined)." [2]
