The usage of fighting-machine is under discussion, see talk:Tripod (The War of the Worlds). "fighting machine" is currently used for a real world military topic. "Tripod" is a science fiction topic. -- 126.96.36.199 (talk) 07:06, 30 November 2013 (UTC)and
The usage of flying machine is under discussion, see talk:flying-machine. "flying machine" is currently used for a real world aeronautical topic. "Flying-machine" is a science fiction topic. -- 188.8.131.52 (talk) 07:16, 30 November 2013 (UTC)and
I have just read an interesting article Great Lost Manuscripts of Science Fiction and Fantasy. It might make the basis of a good article, if anyone with the requisite knowledge feels inclined. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:42, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Additional editors requested
Having a dispute with an editor at List of fictional elements, materials, isotopes and atomic particles who apparently doesn't understand that a) wikis are not reliable sources, and b) list items should have some indication of significance (barring the establishment of specific inclusion criteria, at least). Thank you for your assistance. DonIago (talk) 19:03, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
