Creating Articles w/ Categories[edit]

Good work creating new articles. When you create things, it helps tremendously to assign them to an accurate category (see WP:CG for info). If you're really not sure about categories, at least assign your new articles a stub category (see WP:SC for info). By assigning a category, you help make sure your new articles don't get lost as 'orphans' that are not associated with related topics. Feco

Creating a role[edit]

Really? Never come across that expression before. Personally I'd argue "played ... in the original" is more easily understandable to the layman that "created the role", but that might be something for a WikiProject to decide. HornetMike 21:29, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies![edit]

Drawing-Gay flag.png

Hi, Burnley, 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, peer review and a project-wide article collaboration, all 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're planning to stay, have a square in our quilt! You can put anything you want in it.

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!

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.

Translation skills needed.[edit]

Heya, can I call on your linguistic ability and ask you to translate our LGBT poster into Spanish? You can find it here: (You need to paste it into your toolbar or it won't open.) If you could keep the sentence sizes the same (so, "And we need people who can help us write them." stays on one line, to keep the dramatic impact), I would be grateful. Would you mind doing that for us? Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 00:37, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

That's cool. I want it for the new LGBT WikiProject on eswiki, so I'm sure they'll let you know if there's a mistake. :) Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 00:57, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
Is it one page long? Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 10:34, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
Heya, Raystorm's interested in having a look at your poster, can you email it to me? Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 18:05, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

WP:LGBT Coordinator Election Notice[edit]

This is just a quick, automated note to let you know that there is an election being conducted over the next 7 days for the position of "Coordinator" for the LGBT WikiProject. Your participation is requested. -- SatyrTN (talk · contribs)

"Cast recording"[edit]

  • Thanks for your change, I had not thought of that. What do you think of the article? Smee 22:57, 23 February 2007 (UTC).

LGBT WikiProject newsletter[edit]

Oh, Raystorm says that he really likes your translation apart from the fact that it's written in American Spanish. :) He says to thank you. And I thank you too! Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 23:41, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Brunswick Centre[edit]

Beautiful picture of the Brunswick Centre! I'm very pleased that it's now all finished. Just wish I was still there.

Would you please weigh in with your opinion at Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story? Thanks for your opinion either way. -- Ssilvers 18:26, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Staceyann Chin[edit]

I created a stub, and then noticed an article on Staceyann Chin was in your to-do list... perhaps you would like to contribute more. I also did a bit on Def Poetry. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Larrybob (talkcontribs) 07:28, 4 April 2007 (UTC).
