Strange page formatting[edit]

This page has the "Baen's Bar" section, in a long sidebar. The main content of the article starting with Jim Baen's Universe follows from the sidebar, I think. In addition, calling Arnold Bailey a "guru" is an interesting choice in an unbiased article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.101.10.207 (talk) 21:27, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

This 'odd formatting' seems to have been due to creation of a template {{Baen's Bar}} in an end run on the article deletion policy, and transclusion of that template in this article alone. Information on the Baen's Bar article was merged into the related Baen Books articles. I've flagged the template on Wikipedia:Templates_for_deletion#Template:Baen.27s_Bar. --Barberio (talk) 19:42, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
And this has now been corrected, and brought into line with the standing content policies and guidelines. --Barberio (talk) 23:09, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Webscriptions → Baen Ebooks[edit]

Baen have revamped their e-books operation, renaming it from Webscriptions to Baen Ebooks and moving to the domain name BaenEbooks.com. I've moved our "Webscriptions" article to Baen Ebooks and updated all the articles that wikilinked to Webscriptions accordingly. In updating this article, I found some messy stuff (eg., 3 separate descriptions of Webscriptions), so I did a fairly rough clean-up. Please check my work, correct whatever mistakes I made and further improve the article. Cheers, CWC 15:56, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
