So, it's been established the site I pimped yesterday is run by a crazy person who seems to think pairing lists are more important than actual history. Now, given the response to both the pimping of the site and the disappointment of discovering said crazy, Frito, Dex and I have been bouncing around some ideas.
Yes, you know where this is going. I apparently have too much spare time in my life. *wry*
Dex will be purchasing webspace sometime soon in order to host the Dexcon website. It's possible, if there's sufficient interest and need, that we can set up our own comic fandom wiki - Frito, Dex and I have already created and maintained one for X-Project
, so we know how things operate, and given the fact wikis can be edited by anyone with user permissions, it'd be a good way of maintaining a CFAN-like list of archives, journal communities and mailing lists, given the most common complaint about comics fandom these days is that people don't know where the active sites are any more.
The thing is, I certainly don't want to end up writing large chunks of this thing, especially since I'm one of the 'third generation' of ficcers and there's whole reams of history I'm not up on. So we'd need the support and effort of a good chunk of the comics communitiy - writing, pimping, researching, producing images, etc. We already have a basic framework (we were hoping to institute it in CrazyGirl's site, but alas, no), that would cover hopefully the full gamut of comics fic, but there's a lot of work involved there. And it'd be preferable that we don't start this and see it dribble off into inactivity within a month or two.
So, who's interested?
