So it seems that the First Great Webcomics Wikipurge of Aught-Seven (hmmm, is this web-based video non-notable?) is back on again; Howard Tayler first raised the alarm on behalf of his BLC-mate Brad Guigar and others on Monday. By yesterday, strips were restored, then later yesterday more deletionists hopped on the bandwagon. So Byzantine is the logic behind this dustup that Tayler appears to be on the verge of a frothing, white-hot rage (please note that Tayler is about the most polite guy I’ve ever met outside of Canada, so frothing, white-hot rage needs to be read as in comparison to his normal, placid state).
As of last night, it was claimed that at least the Evil, Inc. article was back again “for good”, but as of this writing (7 February, approximately 16:42 GMT), it ain’t showin’ up for me, and I’ve got a clear cache so the problem’s not on my end. In any event, it appears that there’s only one way to fix this:
- Invite the various Wikieditors to San Diego Comic Con 2007 under false pretenses
- Direct them to section of floor bounded by booths 1129, 1137, 1329, and 1337
Profit!We rumble, Broadway-style; dibs on the baseball bat
On that happy note, we at Fleen would like to thank Sam Logan for the floor map, which does indeed show this year’s Sexy Lagoon; Logan sends along the following color key:
- Pink: Dayfree
- Orange: PA
- Yellow: Blank Label
- Green: Keenspot (naturally)
- Light Blue: Dumbrella
- Reg. Blue: Rooster Teeth Productions (ie: Red vs. Blue)
- Dark Blue: Del Ray/Random House
- Maroon: Phil Foglio
Not sure who that is in the gray; hope they like awesome, ’cause it’s gonna be in high concentrations in this part of the floor. But Logan wonders politely in his email (and I agree), When will SDCC expand the space offered for webcomics? That’s a lot of creators (from at least four countries, by my count) with a lot of fans crammed into a small space; next year may require a larger zone be set aside to avoid crushing crowds.
