ZYZZYVA spelling

Thanks for letting me know about the misspelling (don't know how I've missed that—I've been a rejectee and subscriber there).

Blanking spam pages

No need to do this. I have a semi-automated process I run every day or two (I have to review the changes to make sure there are no false positives), that deletes the spam pages and blocks their creators.

Thanks for the catch on Frontier/Frontier Poetry

If you care to do yeoman work on the wiki, I'd suggest taking a look at Special:LonelyPages and add those pages that should be in the main listing there.

If there are pages that should be merged, the easiest approach is to move any unique comment to the main page and then replace the body of the old page with

#REDIRECT[[Journal Name]]

and that should move requests to that page to the correct location.

I appreciate your efforts.

Sorry D. A. Hosek but I guess I don't really understand what you're asking. I went to one of the Special:LonelyPages (The Baffler) and it was completely blank — nothing to copy and paste away from there to the main Baffler page.

You managed to pick one of the oddball cases. For most of the pages, all that's necessary is adding them to the main list, e.g., Appalachian Review isn't in the list. Just getting the ones that aren't on the list and ignoring the duplicates would help a lot. D. A. Hosek (talk) 06:42, 10 November 2021 (PST)

>Okay, D. A. Hosek. I added Appalachian Review but couldn't figure out how to delete it from Special:LonelyPages. Perhaps that's an admin only role on your end? Happy to help more, but want to make sure I'm doing work correctly and understand the tasks first.

It will go out automatically. LonelyPages is a list of pages that are unlinked. D. A. Hosek (talk) 10:58, 15 November 2021 (PST)

Columbia Journal

This is the same journal as Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art. See, e.g., [1]. I'm moving your rejection to the main page and putting a redirect from Columbia Journal. D. A. Hosek (talk) 20:24, 17 December 2021 (PST)

@D. A. Hosek, didn't realize that, thanks. Both Duotrope and their website have the title as Columbia Journal. I did find some older print issues, though, with Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art on the cover.
