free projects should be done with MORE passion by the people who do them, otherwise it's just lazy and asking for attention. look at how lolibrary is. and it was done for free. if anon had anything to contribute she wouldn't need the site anyway. plus 99% of jmags were hosted illegally online for years on chinese sites without anyone archiving the double watermarked scans. blame them.

>> No.10892971

>free projects should be done with MORE passion by the people who do them, otherwise it's just lazy and asking for attention.
you have actual brain worms. free projects don’t owe you shit, you should expect more from a paid option if anything. the website compiles scans all in one place and isn’t looking for “attention”
>look at how lolibrary is. and it was done for free
you mean also free, incomplete and not perfect, but good enough given it’s ran by community contributions… consisting of the same people who run the website you’re complaining about? so the exact same thing? Again, what have you contributed to the community aside from being a spoiled brat and expecting everything to be spoonfed to you? make the changes you want to see through your own resource or get over yourself.

>> No.10892978

if you're too entitled to use the free resource older lolitas worked hard to provide for you you're welcome to buy the magazines yourself like an adult

>> No.10892991

Anon the girl who ran lolibrary died. I think anon's point is less entitlement and more that a project for a niche community is by and for the community so it should be more robust based on the presumed passion of the contributors. Look at fandom wikis and such, they're full of information and resources because contributors obsessions with the subject. Also attributing any criticism to entitlement is stupid at best, especially since anyone contributing materials illegally is entitled themselves.

>> No.10892993

>Anon the girl who ran lolibrary died.
which is why it's currently running on contributions made by volunteers and has been for years now. bringing up how it used to be literally makes no difference to what i said.
>attributing any criticism to entitlement is stupid at best
calling resources "shit" when you can easily contribute to them, link a better one, or make a better one yourself isn't "criticism"
the original posts of the anon you're defending
>no, that site is shit. it's basically a cringe blog.
>free projects should be done with MORE passion by the people who do them
this is entitlement and bitching with no action being taken. learn what criticism is.

>> No.10892997

Literally no one who runs or contributes on either of those sites has ever gone looking for attention. They have gained literally nothing for building and
Maintaining the single most referenced site in lolita fashion. Lolibrary is even referenced in Japanese and Chinese second hand sales. I hope you’re not in a comm jeez you sound awful.

What do you gulls like to see in lolita zines / what do you appreciate? What do you not like seeing?

>> No.10894244

I don't like the relatable content that Western zines focus on. I prefer the idealized, aspirational content from Asian zines.
I like it when zines have a few core staff (writers, artists, photographers, designers, etc) and occasionally feature guests, rather than totally submission-based content. The latter is too chaotic.
I really love event reports. I would prefer it in a website, blog format that accompanies the website with a short feature in the zine.
I appreciate an active social media presence.
My dream lolita zine is a mix of Nylon x GLB x Moonbow. Highly stylized, specific content with an DIY vibe.
It would be nice if they lasted longer than a year.

>> No.10894246

>I would prefer it in a website, blog format that accompanies the website

Waste of dubs. I meant I would prefer an article in blog format thats hosted on a website with a short feature in the zine. But that's assuming the zine is in print and not just a webzine, PDF format to begin with.

Nayrt but I don't like lolita magazines to have "everyone can be lolita" content. I mean the type of content where they get a size 20 person and put her in a DollBe dress, do a piss poor job at styling it, and then act like some sort of great transformation has taken place. Same thing when they get an obvious sissy (complete with beard stubble and manly man chin) and do the same things to him. I don't want to see any "get ready with me " type content, I don't want to see what people's routines are.

I want to see the finished thing, all polished to perfection (even if it's actually frumpy old school). Gorgeous photoshoots that remind you of old fairytale illustrations, I want to read interviews (of people who are really good at something we care about), also event reports, a list of upcoming large events worldwide, upcoming (indie) brand collections, actually good art, I'll even put up with poetry. DIY content is a must.

it's got hundreds of old magazines scanned, it's a great resource whether you acknowledge it or not. Many of these magazines would be lost media within another few years without lolitahistory.

You're willing to do nothing, you contribute nothing. When you leave no one will miss you.

oh, you're a literal child
