Hurrah! Another Betsy-Tacy editor :)[edit]

Thanks for your work in fleshing out the article on the Betsy-Tacy series. I was hooked early on in life and always have thought it a shame that Lovelace receives so little of the attention devoted to her contemporaries in children's lit. (Speaking of which, I can see we have other reading in common, based on your edits of Emily of New Moon and Daddy-Long-Legs. I was such a Montgomery fan as a kid that I used to use Inter-library loan to get the out-of-print books sent all the way from Canada.) Always a pleasure to see good editing coming from new directions. Lawikitejana 21:53, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Elizabeth Lund, 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!

WP:LGBT Jumpaclass article[edit]

Has anyone volunteered to re-assess your Jump-a-Class article San Francisco 2004 same-sex weddings? If not, I'll do it - let me know? -- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 05:36, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

No. That would be great-- thanks for offering!--Elizabeth Lund 23:13, 28 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.

Header capitalization[edit]

Thank you for your valuable contributions to Wikipedia! Please note that according to the Wikipedia Manual of Style, in a header only the first word and proper nouns should be capitalized. Thus Plot Summary should actually be Plot summary. Thanks! --Dan East 05:14, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Dan! I wasn't aware of that.Elizabeth Lund 03:06, 30 July 2007 (UTC)


03:05, 30 July 2007 (UTC)==novels and awards== When you add an article for a book it is useful to check if it has won any prizes; WP editors have difficulty in judging if a book is important if they are unfamiliar with it, and the information is necessary to discourage nomination for deletion and also to provide information for the readers of WP. Often the article for the author will list the awards, as it did for Alice Childress. It is also a good idea to add reviews of the book in major sources, such as ALA Booklist, Publishers Weekly, or the NY Times. DGG (talk) 00:59, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll do that in the future. I just wrote up a tiny stub on this one because it seemed such a shame that it didn't have an article yet.Elizabeth Lund 03:05, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
