Hi. We seem to have a disagreement on your recent edits to Urinal. Firstly, you are marking your edits "minor" which they really aren't. Furthermore, the term "women"/"woman" is not against the Wikipedia Neutral Point of View policy. Not to mention that it is the socially acceptable/politically correct term for a female human.

The changes were marked "minor" because they involved changing the text of a few links, not the content of the article itself. "Woman" is not inclusive of all female-bodied people, and the links in question are directed at all female-bodied people, not just women (and not inclusive of male-bodied women). Particularly given that one of the links is to a website belonging to a Transgender person and geared at other female-bodied Transgender people, who are not women, the respectful thing to do is to clarify that the information is for female-bodied people.

Template:North West England[edit]

I've nominated a template that you created for deletion, Template:North West England, since it is virtually the same as Template:NW England. See Wikipedia:Templates_for_deletion#Template:North_West_England for details. --WOSlinker 00:11, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Whoops! I couldn't find Template:NW England, which is why I created Template:North West England. No worries; I won't contest that deletion. --FTMichael 16:28, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Userboxes/Location/European Union[edit]

Why have the userboxes of UK moved? Since when does UK not belong to the European Union?

"It (UK) holds a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council, and is a member of the G8, NATO, the European Union and the Commonwealth of Nations." (from the article of United Kingdom) --Sylver 21:08, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

There seems to be a great deal of conflicting information about whether the UK is indeed a member state of the EU. It took me quite a bit of research to even begin to confirm that it's a member state; it has been a member of other organisations, but I'm still not clear just how much the UK is actually governed by the EU. Everything I can find that's recent seems to indicate that the UK is officially considered a member state, though. News to me - and to just about all of my British friends. --FTMichael 01:28, 09 September 2007 (BST)

Hi, Ftmichael, 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!

Eddie Izzard[edit]

Hi, Ftmichael! I've removed Eddie Izzard from the List of transgender people again. First, every entry on that list should be properly sourced. Second, Izzard's article specifically mentions his cross-dressing, but he has never claimed to be a woman or to be transgender. -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 23:39, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Ftmichael. 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) 16:19, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
