Thanks for letting me know why the link to Mineshaft was deleted. I think that Mineshaft is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about Robert Crumb. Mineshaft has published more art and letters by R. Crumb than any other contemporary U.S. magazine. Mineshaft has been publishing R. Crumb since 2000 when he discovered the magazine, eighteen issues in a row. He has drawn the magazine's logos, 9 front covers, 8 back covers, and has contributed a total of 119 pages of artwork and letters. And he's encouraged other great artists to contribute to the magazine. He's sent Mineshaft contributions from his wife, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, his daughter, Sophie Crumb, and writer, J.R. Helton. "It's my favorite magazine..," says R. Crumb (letter to the editor published in Mineshaft #18). No entry on Robert Crumb's modern work is complete without a reference to Mineshaft. Mineshaft is not a big money maker. It's hard to find and Wikipedia is an important place to find R. Crumb's recent work. For a recent review of Mineshaft go to the Comics Reporter,<a href=""/>Tom Spurgeon's "The Comics Reporter" </a>.

Mineshaft is also a relevant external link to Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Jay Lynch, Billy Childish, and Kim Deitch. All of these artists have contributed original work and continue to contribute to Mineshaft. For Jay Lynch and Aline Kominsky-Crumb it's very difficult to find any contemporary work that they're doing. Jay Lynch was recently quoted on NPR radio saying that Mineshaft magazine is the last great underground comics magazine. Link to NPR's Jay Lynch interview: <a href="" NPR Jay Lynch Interview</a>>.

I'd be glad to answer any other questions regarding Mineshaft. Thanks, Aloha67 (talk) 16:25, 9 July 2008 (UTC) Aloha67

Wikipedia is not looking for external links, which should be a last resort, not a first one. It could quite easily fill up every page with ELs. It is an encyclopedia which is seeking good referenced content. That requires rather more work. If reliable secondary sources talk about Mineshaft, then it may have a place in an article. As far as an EL, I suggest you post on the article talk page and let other editors decided, as you seem to have a connection with it. I did a google search and image search for Aline Kominsky-Crumb and had no problem finding a lot of material. You might like to contribute to different articles in the first instance to get the hang of wikipedia. See also WP:EL and WP:COI. Ty 08:57, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Dear Ty, Thanks for your reply. I think those are two good ideas. I will try to become more familiar with Wikipedia and editing pages and also see what other editors think about an external link for Mineshaft on the R. Crumb article. I understand that a flood of external links on Wikipedia would be a big problem, but I do think Mineshaft would be an interesting and valid link for the R. Crumb page.

{{helpme}}Dear Ty, I am having some trouble locating the "article talk page" that you mentioned posting my request on to allow other editors to decide what they thought about my request. I did post my request to add Mineshaft Magazine as an external link to the Robert Crumb page on the "WikiProject Comics Project Talk Page", but I'm not sure that is the correct place to discuss my request. Thanks for your help Aloha67 (talk) 17:54, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Every article on wikipedia has a talk page where you can discuss changes and gain consensus etc. At the top of the article, you should see a link entitled 'Discussion.' Click this to enter the talk page and add comments like you would your own talk page. ——RyanLupin(talk) 17:59, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Aloha67, I see you have found the talk page for Robert Crumb. On wikipedia, new posts usually go at the bottom of the talk page, unless it is in reply to someone else (see how I replied here, rather than at the bottom of the page). Your post at Talk:Robert Crumb was at the top of the page, so it may be harder for other editors to find it. DigitalC (talk) 01:18, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

{{helpme}}Thank Ryan, but when I go into the "discussion" tab for the Robert Crumb article I find a couple of boxes and no direct "talk" page. Do you have a suggestion for where I should post my request for this particular article? Thanks again for you help. Aloha67 (talk) 18:15, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

{{helpme}}I'm working on the article Mineshaft Magazine. Though it can be searched in Wikipedia when I try and make an internal link with Mineshaft Magazine it says this page doesn't exist. Is there some step I need to take to make it an article that exists, so that I can create an internal link? Thanks.Aloha67 (talk) 00:44, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

{{helpme}}Thank you very much TenPoundHammer.Aloha67 (talk) 00:59, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

I would like to have the older version of the image Mineshaft_magazine_issue_15.jpg deleted. I looked at the Wikipedia how to delete an image entries, but I was concerned that I might end up having the entire page deleted. I would just like to delete the version uploaded on July 29, 2008 and keep the version uploaded today, 9/9/14. I would also like to have the 9/9/14 version updated on the Mineshaft magazine article page. Thank you for your help.--Aloha67 (talk) 18:12, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

When you upload a new version of the same file, it (eventually) updates across Wikipedia. The old version is kept mainly as a "history" of the image. There is no reason to have the older version deleted. Primefac (talk) 18:26, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
