Possibly unfree Image:SFGMCcasualmen.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:SFGMCcasualmen.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images because its copyright status is disputed. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. Please go to its page for more information if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. MECUtalk 22:55, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
It's licensed correct. And without my knowing of your position, the image couldn't have been appropriately tagged. But, since you included the information on the talk page, I'm fine with it. I'll withdraw the PUIdisputed tag and nomination. Thanks for helping clear this up. Lastly, since you seem to be editing the article about this group for which you are affiliated, you will want to read the conflict of interest policy. Thanks again. --MECUtalk 13:39, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi, MusicMen, 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!

SFGMC[edit]

Thank you for the excellent updates and new block on the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus article. It seems you have culled some facts from the SFGMC website (and from GMCLA's website as Bruce Mayhall is their conductor, not SFGMC's). SFGMC's website is out-of-date, hence my revisions. FYI, SFGMC's new website will be launched in March. Thanks again, MusicMen 01:15, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

I would be grateful if you would clarify the tag you added today. You tagged the article for "external links clean up". Each of the eight referenced links in the article relate specifically to the content, so I'm confused about the reason for the tag. However, if the tag is related to the "References" list at the end of the article (which are not linked to the article), that would make sense. I will remove many of these as they relate to content that has since been deleted from the article. MusicMen 19:24, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

yes...it's the list of links following the tag. i started going through them myself, but i didn't want to lose really some of the better links that might be integrated into the article--emerson7 | Talk 19:32, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
great, thanks. i'm going through them myself. i've removed some of the less relevant items and will investigate adding some detail to the article in due course. Is the tag still necessary? MusicMen 19:56, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

wow! i see you've been quit busy today! the only problem is with the image, which should be in the infobox. the only reason the other gay choruses have a logos only in their article, is logo images are free.

you left me a note about images, which i don't fully understand. sorry if i'm being daft, but could please explain further? thanks for your help. MusicMen 05:25, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
the image in the infobox is supposed to be that of the subject. in the infobox for some of the other gay men's choruses, i used the the fair use license for logos, because it was the only image available.

okay - fair enough. thanks - I'm still new to this. MusicMen 20:43, 8 March 2007 (UTC)


Saw your note about too many links, so now I'm confused. I thought you suggested that the list of references should be incorporated into the article as relevant links, which is what I have done. Are you saying that I've provided too much evidence of fact? MusicMen 23:57, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

lol...not all the refs...just the relevant ones. you've really done a bang-up job on the article, and that's great, but every line-item needn't be referenced. my 'very loose' rule of thumb, and the question i ask myself is: 'will this claim be challenged?.' If so, 'ref' it. another question i ask myself is, whether the ref is off topic. e.g. the ref link i removed for mr. sims in the first paragraph. the info in the link is more relative to an article on sims rather the sfgmc. in contrast, comments about the assasination were teetering on non-topical, until you brought it all together with the ref showing that the SFGMC was 'there' and the significance of their first performance. keep it up...cheers! --emerson7 | Talk 00:13, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Jump-a-class[edit]

Hi, MusicMen! I noticed you'd put San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus on the Jump-a-Class page. Are you aware of how the JaC is played? Most people start with "stub" articles and try to jump them up to Start or B. The goal is to see how far you can jump it in a week. Just thought you'd like to know :) -- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 06:02, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

There is nothing wrong with doing Jump-a-class starting with a B article :) My reason for asking is that it means you have a week to get the article to GA or better - difficult, but a great challenge :) -- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 21:26, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
LOL! I'll support you in any way I can :) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by SatyrTN (talkcontribs) 21:32, 8 March 2007 (UTC).

Seattle Men's Chorus article - where is it?[edit]

Seattle Men's Chorus article - where is it?

I added a link to the Seattle Men's Chorus on an article, and it came up red and didn't connect. I can only get to the SMC page now via cached links. Has the article been deleted? MusicMen 16:43, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

lol...just looking at it, it's my guess that you used the 'fancy quote' instead of the regular quote. e.g. ' vs. ’ .
also, i want pass on to you a clarification i received re the infobox. the fields for “date of birth”, and “date of death” are reserved for musicians (people) while “origin” field (in normal font) is for groups. i've made changes to most of the men's chorus articles i'm aware of, but there may be more. --emerson7 | Talk 17:07, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks - still learning this stuff. FYI, I'm finding some great information about the history of LGBT choruses in Australia re the Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus article. MusicMen 17:58, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

are you arguing the validity of the change I made? or the change itself?

please clarify - what change? MusicMen 01:06, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
okay, now i'm a bit confused about what we are talking about. seattle? or melbourne? or ? --emerson7 | Talk 01:15, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
i wasn't arguing about the validity of any changes you made to anything. What were you referring to? MusicMen 01:20, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Your sig[edit]

Please add a link to your user page and/or user talk page from your signature, especially because the name you use for signing (MusicMen) is so different from your actual username. This will make it easy for people to know who they are conversing with; otherwise people have to search the page history and basically guess that MusicMen = Mcguireka. If you want to change your username, please see Wikipedia:Changing username. Thank you. howcheng {chat} 01:19, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus[edit]

Updated DYK query On 23 March, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

I'll try to find someone to cut it down and touch it up a bit, but I think we can use it. Thanks a lot! Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 22:19, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

The turtle article[edit]

I saw your note on the main editor's talkpage about the history section. If Wiki has their permission to use the history section, we need that officially. A little note on the article will not suffice. An admin has removed it, since the website itself says all rights reserved. Jeffpw 23:59, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I hope the folks posting to the article eventually figure out how this works! MusicMen 21:35, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Kathleen McGuire, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Recorder (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
