Some pages are better and more useful than others. The ones that have a really good start but could use some one summarizing the evolution of various terms include:
We'd really appreciate it if anyone could also help by finding pages like this one on Geocities and including historical definitions on the relevant pages. Geocities is closing down on October 6. For fan cultures and some parts of early internet history, this is a great big loss. Understanding how some words were used in their earliest contexts, how definitions evolved and changed will become harder as Geocities was so central to much of that history. Any attempts to help preserve that history and develop a better etymological understanding of fannish words from that site... we would be grateful. Thank you for any assistance!
