Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies![edit]

Hi, Decafdyke, 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!

Deletion of List of female basketball players?![edit]

Hi There. I noticed that you made an effort to improve the List of female basketball players back in Nov. and thought you might want to know that someone has placed an "Article for deletion" tag on it. I have just added the Hang-on tag and will post my reasons. You're welcome to join the discussion. Deebki 12:34, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for being fair at the teach-for-america article[edit]

I am thankful you didn't just delete everything or wipe out my entire edit (undone E359107s edit by a ip-vandal). I didn't hear it went to trial though? Are you sure that the source is accurate? I don't have any news subscriptions, but apparently I heard this story wrong. The media made a mistake because I was so distraught over this story back when it happened, I watched the news daily to hear developments.

Thanks, plus I'm a LGBT supporter too!

Happy holidays, (talk) 12:41, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks re Lieberman[edit]

I don't know why I couldn't find that ref, but I'm happy you did. And nice cleanup of several items on that page. --SPhilbrickT 11:18, 30 July 2009 (UTC) By the way, I assume there's an interesting story to tell - Nancy drops out of school in 1980, then returns to complete her degree in 2000, but I haven't found any discussion of it. If you have any sources telling the story, it would be a nice addition to answer an obvious question.--SPhilbrickT 12:36, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Freddie Prinze edit[edit]

In regards to your edit to the Freddie Prinze bio here and the edit summary you used "If she changed her name in 2007, she shouldn't be referred to by the old name for a 2009 event" it is Wikipedia policy[3] to refer to the name someone is commonly known by rather than the technically correct name

Common usage in reliable sources is preferred to technically correct but rarer forms, whether the official name, the scientific name, the birth name, the original name or the trademarked name.

Professionally[4] she is still known as Gellar and is referred to as such in news articles etc which is why Gellar is still used in articles . Garda40 (talk) 01:10, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

do not intend to pursue the edit further
Nothing to pursue anyway since I haven't touched your edit and the wording is as you left it .Garda40 (talk) 18:22, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

A WikiProject for women in the sports[edit]

Bonjour , please read this Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/Women's Sport , bon week-end --Geneviève (talk) 13:12, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

You should come hang out with us on the internetz![edit]

Hi! I wanted to let you know that we have created an IRC channel for "countering systemic bias one new editor at a time", aka closing the gender gap! Come hang out at #wikimedia-gendergap if that subject interests you. We hope this channel can serve as a safe haven to hang out, talk about Wiki, brainstorming, increasing women's participation in Wikimedia, article alerts and foster friendships. I hope you join us! (And if you need any IRC help, just let me know!) See you there! SarahStierch (talk) 22:30, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Decafdyke. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:10, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
