I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, please be sure to sign your name on Talk and vote pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, or three tildes (~~~) for just your name.

Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies![edit]

Hi, Fshepinc, 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!

You have been editing Wikipedia for over three years. And so you're not a noob. Provide references for your contributions or they will be removed. E_dog95' Hi ' 23:12, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

When adding material to Wikipedia articles editors should supply references at that time. It is your responsibility to do so. It is OUR responsibility to remove uncited information. That is what I did. Call me what you will, but I am simply playing by the rules. E_dog95' Hi ' 19:06, 30 November 2008 (UTC)


Were you referring to me when you spoke of an editor having worked at Intel (and that could be a conflict of interest)? You are way off track. What is the connection? Where do you get these ideas? E_dog95' Hi ' 19:16, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

I am advising you to be very careful what you say or do on any Wikipedia page. E_dog95' Hi ' 23:13, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Timing Is Everything[edit]

I should start by apologizing. Yes, my comments were brusque.

About that article. Yea, it has seen its share of vandalism and unreferenced items. That, by the way, is what I work on mostly - adding references to articles. So my experience doing that has shaped the way I contribute content to articles. It's almost never without a citation. That's why I barked at you initially. But I think it's fair to say that the majority of content contributions by all editors are made without citations being a priority. So that's why I jumped. I'm sorry.

You don't need to remove that statement from the article's talk page. I don't think it hurts anyone by leaving it as is.

So, sorry again for barking. My main goal on any Wikipedia article that I work on is sources. That, again, is mainly why I reverted the item that you placed on Intelius. Let's just watch that article and keep out anything that isn't supported by a reliable source. That's all for now. E_dog95' Hi ' 05:40, 2 December 2008 (UTC)


There's these... WP:EMOTICON

E_dog95' Hi ' 05:48, 2 December 2008 (UTC)


And for citing sources there is this tutorial... WP:CITE

Anything you put between <ref> and </ref> will be displayed as a reference wherever the <references/> tag or the {{reflist}} tag are. The reflist tag is usually placed in the "references" section, but can be placed anywhere in the article. I usually put one in an article temporarily (and often forget it) during my improvements to references.

So you could do something like: <ref>I like cottage cheese</ref> [1]

  • {{reflist}}
  1. ^ I like cottage cheese

Also, for making really nice and standard refs use the templates at WP:TEMP. It's as easy as placing the template inside the <ref> and </ref>. Hope that helps. E_dog95' Hi ' 05:58, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Fshepinc! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,985 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Arthur Alphin - Find sources: "Arthur Alphin" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 08:32, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Andrew Levitas[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Andrew Levitas has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unsourced stub about artist and actor, who has had no major roles.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Bearian (talk) 06:42, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Jack Eric Williams[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Jack Eric Williams requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. reddogsix (talk) 21:42, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

I fail to see why a speedy deletion is appropriate here. Jack Eric Williams was a noted performer and a successful, award-winning composer. As such he merits inclusion. Several existing Wikipedia articles had existing links to his name. His work has been commercially recorded, and continues to be performed. He is listed in notable biographical sites such as the internet Movie Database and the Internet Broadway Database.

Proposed deletion of Jack Eric Williams[edit]

Non-notable individual lacking references.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. reddogsix (talk) 22:31, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

October 2012[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Harry Potter, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. — UncleBubba T @ C ) 02:02, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Chris Alexander for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Chris Alexander is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Chris Alexander until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Andy Dingley (talk) 12:26, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Fshepinc. 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) 16:29, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Elaine M. Alphin, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Glenrock. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:18, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
