Category talk:Novels

From WikiFur, the furry encyclopedia.

Some of the "Novels to add" are actually works of nonfiction. How about we create a separate category for nonfiction books of interest to furries?

I have added a Fiction and Non-Fiction Subcategory. --Tafyrn(talk) 04:51, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)


Right, so, for some reason, I can't get in to edit Steppenwolf into the novels list, after creating the article. Apparently someone smarter than me is required. --Furthling

You add [[Category:Novels]] to the article itself to do that. Spaz Kitty 02:53, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
I don't follow. Furthling
I already did it to Steppenwolf, but you go to the article of the page you need to add to the category in question, and add [[Category:whatever]] to the bottom of the page. Look at the edit source of any page to see what I mean. Spaz Kitty 02:58, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I can see the change you made. Just is counterintuitive from the standpoint of maintaining the content of that page. Furthling
When I first started editing wikis I found that a little confusing too. Now I don't give it a second thought. --mwalimu 05:31, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Criticism and ratings[edit]

Is there any place to discuss criticism and ratings of furry novels, where people can say what they liked and what they didn't like? I would hope that wikifur might be a place like that, since it is well known and such, but I don't think that is the type of article they want. Any suggestions? 03:08, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I understand your sentiment and I wish there were such a place. There aren't too many places I know of that are primarily for reviews and discussion of existing works of furry literature; most are part of a larger site (and often a minor part) that caters to other forms of furry media as well, especially art. A site for furry literature reviews and critiques would be great if you could get enough regular visitors to use the site and contribute to it. There have been some attempts to do that that didn't work out or simply fell into disuse. I would love it if one of these sites would pick up a good following as a literature site without getting overwhelmed by the "camel's nose" of furry art.
However, I don't see WikiFur being used for that either. The articles themselves may include a limited amount of reviews and opinions, especially if they are references to reviews written elsewhere or could reasonably be regarded as the consensus of multiple readers. I don't think we want to get into the business of hosting original critiques and commentary here on WikiFur.
If you find such a site, please let me know. And maybe write a WikiFur article about it too. --mwalimu 06:37, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
