Travel costs and science fiction fandom
If you read accounts of early 20th century fannish life as enshrined in the early fanzines, you will see that the high cost of travel (by 21st-century standards) was quite relevant to how fan culture developed. --Orange Mike | Talk 18:51, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
- This is true. I had thought the last part of the sentence previous to the one I deleted ("or when one of them could manage a trip") covered the fact that travel was costlier during the early 20th society. As such, I had deleted it. However, upon reflection, the sentence should have stayed. I was not trying to undermine the article, nor was I trying to under-appreciate what fans did to meet up. Sorry if it appeared so. Red dwarf (talk) 21:01, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
Articles for deletion nomination of Snook (comedian)
I have nominated Snook (comedian), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Snook (comedian). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.
Yeah, I usually just fix spelling mistakes, add music video tables to artist discographies, or add pictures to singles, artists, bands, or albums. Like Spacehog didn't have an artist picture, so I added one. This Too Shall Pass by OK Go didn't have a single cover on its page, so I added one. Beck's discography didn't have a music video table, so I created one. (It took me at least 2 hours to find the pattern in the markup.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by GrantyO (talk • contribs) 00:31, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jinn, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Castle in the Air. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
