To stay on topic, I wonâ€™t defend seasons eight and nine nor defend what Chris Carter allowed for, but all things considered, The X-Files was still, quality wise, a cut above otherâ€™s shows produced from the 99-02 era. Personally, Iâ€™m old school and prefer the first five seasons. It just became impossible for the writers to maintain the standards of the Vancouver years.
I was happy to see a discussion thread here about XF. I occasionally post and chime in at the Zone, in case anyone was wondering about my screen name, or if it crossed anyoneâ€™s mind that the screen name seemed a little much, â€˜Another boastful film geek psychoâ€™ then it should make sense in a moment, as much as this will be a little bit of a plug.
Iâ€™m the webmaster and creator of The X-Files Lexicon, a referenced based site that sort of wears many hats. Weâ€™ve been up for a year and a half. Hoping the Zone moderator will allow this.
Iâ€™m aware that thereâ€™s some pretty critical eyes at AICN Zone and I need some extra help.
The Lexicon needs to expand and I am recruiting people to help write the Episode Guides. Iâ€™m looking for volunteers with a real love of the show, who are good writers as well as enjoy writing, who either have the seasonal episodes on DVDâ€™s or VHS, who are willing to help. Ideally, Iâ€™d like to find people who have been published on-line elsewhere or would even have a blog, writers with some quality. People with a cool attitude would be a real plus as well. We run a pretty friendly ship at the Lexicon.
Right now, we are almost through season one and will be moving into season two soon.
I am only looking right now for people to help with the Episode Guides, it can be a little daunting, I know, we can take it in steps, hereâ€™s a example of the format.
I never set deadlines and you can help with as much as your willing to do so, this is all volunteer work and unpaid. The added plus of helping the Lexicon and being part of the staff is you could be rewarded with collectable promotional material. We have a couple of future interviews which might happen and we will always incorporate your questions into an interview. There are other benefits, the site keeps expanding, compared to the inactivity of other XF sites, The Lexicon is a fairly ambitious site and thereâ€™s a lot of promise in the horizon. Weâ€™re a pretty democratic place, everyone is always credited for their work and input.
If youâ€™re interested, and I hope so, drop me a message.
