WikiProject LGBT studies[edit]

Hello! I noticed that your userpage mentions that you are interested in LGBT issues. Would you be interested in joining WikiProject LGBT studies? The WikiProject's been a bit inactive recently and some of us are trying to get it going again. We'd love to have you on board! Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 12:22, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Love your page![edit]

You have an amazing page! I am a fairly new and inexperienced wikipedian, and my big project I want to tackle is my user page. How did you get all of those boxes (all the ones that represent your views and such)? I am interested in getting some of them and want to know how to get them.



I second that! This one of the most amazing user pages I have ever seen! ;) I need to update mine! Where are you getting all of these boxes from? Mseames

another question...[edit]

Hey! Thanks for getting back to me and telling me all about the great userbox war. Is it okay with you if I copy some of the userbox codes from your page? it would make my life a lot easier (since I'm not exactly fluent in HTML or Wiki).

Thanks again,

Sure you can help! You can work on the to-do list, give criticism to people who ask for help with their articles, participate in all the discussions. There's loads you can do without necessarily drawing on your own knowledge. And of course, even if you don't know something about an article but want to improve it, you can always research it. :) Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 11:27, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Bcatt, welcome to WikiProject LGBT Studies!

We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying, categorizing, and improving articles of interest to the LGBT community. Some points that may be helpful:

  • Our main aim is to help improve LGBT-related articles, so if someone asks for help with an article, please try your hardest to help them if you are able.
  • Most important discussions take place on the project's main discussion page; it is highly recommended that you watchlist it.
  • The project has several ongoing and developing activities, such as article quality assessment, and a project-wide article collaboration, both of which you are welcome to take part in. We also have a unique program to improve our lower quality articles, Jumpaclass, so please consider signing up there.
  • If you have another language besides English, please consider adding yourself to our translation section, to help us improve our foreign LGBT topics.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome!

It's good to have you! Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 22:04, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

LGBT WikiProject Newsletter[edit]

The LGBT studies WikiProject Newsletter!
Issue III - February 1, 2007

Announcement: If someone requests help or feedback on an article, please try your hardest to help them out if you are able. Thank you.

Project News
  • The LGBT Portal has once again been revamped and a work rota started. Efforts towards Featured Portal status are slowly coming together.
  • The assessment system has been a great success, we have tagged over 4000 articles! Please tag any LGBT related articles you come across by adding {{LGBTProject | class=}} to the talkpage. Please see the Assessment Department for how to assess an article according to the grading system.
  • The Translation department has changed its focus, to LGBT articles about non-English topics and people on which there may be more information on the relevant foreign Wikipedia. Please add your name if you are fluent in any language other than English.
  • Jumpaclass is picking up slowly, with nine people having entered. With over 2000 stubs we need to improve our article quality. Please sign up and get it going! Challenge another user to see how far you can jump a stub!
  • There is an ongoing discussion about the current LGBT categorisation system here, here, and a little bit here. A special page has now been set up here to deal with this.
  • A Watchlist has been set up to monitor controversial and/or highly vandalised articles. It can also be used for article disputes, just add a note explaining the nature of the dispute.
  • With the influx of so many active members, there is now enough support for a LGBT studies peer review, which may be found here. It's in the beta phase at the moment, so bear with us if we make any mistakes. Feel free to peer review any articles you have been working on.
  • It was agreed this month to start reducing the uses of the Notice board, as many members felt that it was not effective. An open tasks template has been created, bringing together important announcements, FAC/FARs, Peer reviews, XfDs, the COTM, and requested articles. You may desire to watchlist it. A Deletion sorting subpage is also now working to bring together XfDs - this should be bot-driven, but we have not currently tagged enough articles to make this fully automated, so please update the list with any LGBT-related XfDs you come across.

Cardiac Shunts[edit]

I'm personally interested in cardiac shunting in reptiles, and I'd like to change the current cardiac shunt pages to reflect the diversity of cardiac shunting in all of vertebrate (or just amniote, honestly) biology. Currently, I'm wondering why there are separate stubs for R-L & pulmonary-systemic shunts. It looks like you made those pages, so if you could enlighten me on Talk:Cardiac shunt I'd be grateful.

Bcatt, I miss you[edit]

I miss your contributions to Wikipedia, Bcatt. I recall your good faith and guidance in our discussion about Mayan Languages, and I would like your guidance again about the proposal to delete Dumbest Decisions in Movie History.[[1]]. r3 20:18, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

You maybe interested in the Article Rescue Squadron[edit]

I notice that you are part of Category:Inclusionist_Wikipedians. I would like you to consider joining the Article Rescue Squadron. Rescue Squadron members are focused on rescuing articles for deletion, that might otherwise be lost forever. I think you will find our project matches your vision of Wikipedia.
