Yeah, that would be nice. Unfortunately, as discussed above, magazines are non-trivial to search for. If anyone knows a magazine about magazines (there must be one), we could use that instead.
Actually, I've found that a Google search for "[periodical-name] ISSN" returns some page with the periodical name and its ISSN. At least, this works for the periodicals I tried to search for. It's not guaranteed, but it's better than nothing. Can we have an [ISSN 00000000] tag? -- BrentNewhall
I'm not entirely sure what you mean here. Do you suggest using the UseMod:SubPages feature ? If so, for what ? Thank you for your patience. -- lb
Correct - I am aware of at least these four ways to do subfields: either MarkDilley/Magazines? or Magazines/MarkDilley? or MagazineRack/TheNation? or MagazineTheNation? - I don't want to, nor do I think it would be acceptable to clutter BookShelved with this information if it could not be easily moved to another wiki (MagazineRack?, for example) - But I am interested in exploring ways to put the information here, again not to mess with the rules you have layed out, just exploring to see if it is possible. Thanks for your patience! -- md
You (and other bookshelvites) are making the rules. MarkDilley/MagazineRack? sounds like a fine idea to me. You're exploring a neat idea in what is essentially a sub-Wiki private to your page; that sounds cool. If you'd like to break out to a full-fledged UseMod:UseMod Wiki at some point, I can host you for a while on this server.
OK, let's cut to the chase. There just so happens to be a book called MagazineDesign. That will do me. -- Keith
Keith, your idea is I start a page called Ms.? and put MagazineDesign as a tag on the page, This breaks the SimpleRules, of which I am fond of and makes this wiki unique! not sure I am for that, but would like to start a discussion about it before we go for it. -Best, MarkDilley on the other hand, it would be easy to move the pages to a peridical wiki if they are all tagged - - he thinks later. . .
I don't see it as breaking the SimpleRules, rather extending them in a natural and obvious way. I've already done the deed with TimesLiterarySupplement, that page seems perfectly in harmony with Bookshelved to me. More natural and obvious that using sub-pages to build something a lot like a [walled garden] intended to seed another wiki off this one, I'd suggest. [You aren't gonna need it], unless you really do want a wiki devoted to magazines alone, in which case why not go ahead start one? In any case, I'd further suggest that we could agonise for ever about the hypothetical benefits or problems of one scheme or another. Let's just have a go and and see what happens -- KeithBraithwaite
Sounds very interesting. They seem to have critical mass, but I had never heard of it before now. It needs further mulling before committment! -- MarkTilley
Seems to me it's way to PayItForward?.
