Ten Most Wanted Pages

One of my favorite features of Underground Library is Wanted Pages. This page shows the top 50 articles not yet created in terms of how many other pages link to them.

The current top ten (okay, eleven, because there's a tie)?
Arlene Ang ‎(5 links)
StorySouth ‎(5 links)
Michael Kimball ‎(4 links)
Derek White ‎(4 links)
Underground Boston ‎(4 links)
Opium ‎(4 links)
Peter Markus ‎(4 links)
Liesl Jobson ‎(4 links)
Robert Lopez ‎(4 links)
Aaron Burch ‎(4 links)
Mary Hamilton ‎(4 links)

Do you know enough about any of these people, places, mags to write a couple sentences? Chances are, you do. So why not log in and create an article on them? It doesn't have to be anything fancy, and doesn't have to take more than five minutes. The articles will get fleshier as more and more people get involved and add their knowledge, whether by creating new articles, or adding to existing ones.

And the people who contribute really are the people who are going to decide which articles get linked to the most. The eleven most linked to existing articles are:

SmokeLong Quarterly ‎(27 links)
FRiGG ‎(23 links)
P. H. Madore ‎(13 links)
Thieves Jargon ‎(13 links)
Dave Clapper ‎(13 links)
Blake Butler ‎(12 links)
Mike Young ‎(11 links)
Elimae ‎(10 links)
Hobart ‎(9 links)
Molly Gaudry ‎(9 links)
Matt Bell ‎(9 links)

Considering that P. H. Madore, Ellen Parker, and I have been the most active contributors so far, that the most linked-to articles are the things we know the most about shouldn't be any surprise. I thoroughly expect that will change considerably as more and more people get involved.

So sign up! Pimp yourself, your friends, your favorite mags by writing about them. You might find it's a hell of a lot of fun.
