Hi, welcome to Alien Species! Thanks for your edit to the Skedar page.
it is a self-published book series with no physical copies available, no original content, and a spelling error in the title. The work has no real legitimacy as a work of art as near as I can tell. It would be unfair to include it here when other things are not for the same reasons... just because it is popular doesn't make it an exception to the rules! You may make your own wiki for the book though (I will assist if you want, as I understand this kind of thing), but this wiki is not meant to be a place for niche fan groups to gather and build a database to their illegitimate work. The page has been restored and will be restored for 3 days or until you grab the source code. ralok (talk) 02:37, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
while you are at it snag up the source info for all of the pages from this book/whatever http://aliens.wikia.com/wiki/Category:The_Society_On_Da_Run as they are going to be deleted. ralok (talk) 02:38, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
You printing some copies up doesnt make it official, it needs to be printed, bound, and distributed legitimately . . . It cant just be a pet project thing, did you even have permission from the author to make copies of it? And having a copyright does not legitimize a work, as under current copyright a writer always holds the copyright of anything they create, whether or not they have it registered. Also a spelling error in the title being intentional was obvious, but that fact only makes it seem immature. ralok (talk) 02:55, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
I figured that out already, that you were the author. Lulu is a print on demand services meaning that they only print for people who specifically ask for the title, meaning it wasnt distributed. And I know the content is meant to be taken seriously, which is my gripe with the title. You cant mispell the title on purpose, and expect to be taken seriously. The whole thing reeks of amateur, I am a proffessional science fiction writer personally, did you know you are going to be blacklisted for self-publishing a book? Big publishers do not like self-publishers... and I have to say, it is more than a little pathetic that you came on here and started posting content to promote your own work, which tells me that the merit of the content does not speak for itself . . . As well, most of the imagery seems inconsistent, and I am willing to bet it was lifted from other sources without the artists permission... which is illegal, and particularly damning if you want to be taken seriously. ralok (talk) 03:31, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
