Links[edit]

Jellyfish link updated to Web Archive

A Wikipedia contributor has deleted 2 links from this page:

http://www.magforum.com/glossies/teen.htm which is a summary of 50-odd teen magazines in the UK since the early 1960s.

http://www.jellyfishmag.com this links to the first UK digital magazine for teenage girls. It follows the advent of Monkey, a digital lad's mag from Dennis, last year and marks an interesting innovation in publishing.

The contributor did not explain why these 2 links have been added.

I have asked for them to be reinstated (23 May 2007).

If you check the page history (the tab at the top of the screen) you can see who edited the article, and why (if they have provided an edit summary; not everyone does!). I've also looked at your talk page - Corpx (the editor who removed the links) seems to think they were spam, which in the Wikipedia context is any link to a site that is trying to sell or promote something. I've looked at the link you give on your talk page (www.magforum.com/glossies/teen.htm), and it seems to be ok to me... if you want to make a case for keeping it, it's probably best to contact Corpx on their talk page here. Many busy editors may not realise that you have replied to them on your own talk page - it's generally best to reply on theirs ;)
You could also just add the link back in and leave a comment on this talk page justifying why you have included it. Be bold! BTW, I noticed that you've been editing for a while. Have you considered creating an account? EyeSereneTALK 18:00, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
Addendum to the above - I have restored the magforum link (not spam!) EyeSereneTALK 18:41, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

I have reinstated the Jellyfish link (you do not have to sign up to look at a copy) and added some context. Dennis says it is sending out 209,612 copies of Monkey a week - more than Zoo sells (204,564, weekly) and more than Maxim's circulation (131,497, monthly). So far, it looks as if the page-turning model can work; Jellyfish is the test outside the fleshy men's sector. This is an evolutionary step in the teen sector, magazine publishing as a whole and digital media. Have also toned down the Anglo-US-centricity. Wiki links added to Fleetway and Dennis.

Wikify[edit]

I have made a small attempt to section the article, without changing the content in any way. Feel free to amend as you see fit ;) BTW, the numbers quoted above would be a nice addition - do you have references for them? EyeSereneTALK 17:20, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
