Best Editor
Long Form and Short Form Hugo:
Eligible Works from 2018

By JJ: To assist Hugo nominators, listed below are the editors of works published for the first time in 2018.

These credits have been accumulated from Acknowledgments sections and copyright pages in works, as well as other sources on the internet.

Feel free to add missing 2018-original works and the name of their editors in the comments, and I will get them included in the main post. Self-published works may or may not be added to the list at my discretion.

PLEASE DON’T ADD GUESSES.

If you are able to confirm credits from Acknowledgments sections, copyright pages, or by contacting authors and/or editors, then go ahead and add them in comments. If you have questions or corrections, please add those also.

Top 10 Posts for August 2018

The 2018 Hugo Winners news item and related comments attracted seven times more attention than most of August’s other popular posts. Only the equally heavily read article about planned protests outside Worldcon 76 had the same magnitude of audience. Therefore they lead both the overall Top 10 list, and the “non-Scroll” Top 10.

Here are the most-read posts from August 2018:

Worldcon 76 Update from Mike Glyer

I would like to let you all know that I was taken to the hospital this morning after experiencing a bad episode of dizziness. They have run some tests and given me some medication, and I am feeling much better, but they have told me that they will be keeping me in the hospital overnight for observation.

Please do not worry about me. I will keep you updated as I find out more. I would like to thank the people who assisted me this morning, including Steven H Silver and Helen Montgomery.

Those of you who are at Worldcon 76, please continue to attend events, have fun, and post updates. And as always, comments from everyone else in the community are welcomed.

[statement provided by Mike Glyer from the hospital]

Top 10 Posts for July 2018

A Twitter storm struck Worldcon 76 programming after schedules were emailed to participants, leading to July’s most-read post. Questions were raised about respect for people’s chosen pronouns (a byproduct of committee-created bios), participation by creators from LGBTQAI+ and POC backgrounds, and by new writers generally after complaints from some Hugo nominees who weren’t chosen for the program. Worldcon 76 chair Kevin Roche apologized, had the schedule taken offline, and accepted help from a team led by Mary Robinette Kowal recruited to fix the problems.

Highlights among last month’s most popular non-Scroll posts included Dr. Robin Reid’s detailed account of a visit to the Bodleian’s current Tolkien exhibit, and Heather Rose Jones’ advice to those trying to get on convention programming.

Top 10 Posts for June 2018

June’s two most-read Pixel Scrolls covered the reactions to David Weber’s agreement to be a ConCarolinas special guest in 2019, his characterization of those who had issues with Ringo’s selection as a special guest, and the statement delivered by the ConCarolinas chair at closing ceremonies of this year’s con (wording negotiated with Weber).

Similarly, the coverage of rival petitions seeking to unseat or to endorse ConCarolinas’ chair made “The Right Way, The Wrong Way, and the Navy Way” June’s most-viewed non-Scroll. Following in second place was the post reporting that after everything had been said and done, the chair quit two weeks later for health reasons and left Weber looking for confirmation that the terms of his agreement are still in place.

Top 10 Posts for May 2018

Lots of SFF news from Utah this month. FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention’s Bryan Brandenburg lit off the internet with several ill-chosen statements in social media about the con’s handling of a harassment complaint.

Then, Filers had a lot to say when Larry Correia was disinvited as an Origins guest, much of which was even on-topic, in the process generating the 12th-highest number of comments any post here has ever received.

But that wasn’t the only newsmaking state in May. Discussion about WisCon (in Madison, Wisconsin), and ConCarolinas also drove comments on some of the highest-rated Scrolls.

Here are two lists, the complete Top 10, and a second that leaves out the daily roundups.

  1. Origins Game Fair Drops Larry Correia as Guest
  2. Pixel Scroll 5/16/18 Ringworlds For Sale or Rent, Moons To Let Fifty Cents

Top 10 Posts for April 2018

April’s most-read post was about an attention-craving writer suing the San Jose Worldcon.

However, protests about John Ringo ’s being named a ConCarolinas special guest produced three posts in the Top 10 – two of them about the story, and a third (“Tool Talk”) the byproduct of someone’s poorly-phrased attack on the concom’s handling of the crisis.

Here are the ten most read-and-discussed posts from April 2018.

Status Report About DNS Propagation

The new site is working for a lot of people, but some Filers report they are unable to see the site at its new host, getting error messages, or receiving the last save prior to the move. My best guess is the internet services they connect with have not yet copied the updated DNS.

My new ISP’s Knowledge Base gives this overview of DNS propagation:

DNS propagation can be thought of as the time it takes DNS records to expire on a server. For example, if you update your nameservers to point to a different hosting company, those new nameservers must propagate across the Internet. Each ISP has their own time frame on how often they update/expire their cached DNS records. Because there is no single shared standard throughout the Internet, this entire process can take from a few hours to up to 72 hours.
