Vandalism[edit]

If you do not sign your posts to my talk page, they will be deleted. Though with the initials AR... could it be? She's baaack. NickGorton 15:31, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

Could the two of you please take your flamewar elsewhere? Wikipedia talk pages are really supposed to be for stuff relating to editing Wikipedia. The above "discussion" looks like something off a bad message board. You'll both be happier if you restrict yourselves to actually talking about articles rather than going back and forth with personal attacks. Isomorphic 05:32, 26 May 2005 (UTC)

Oh, and the "lay off the personal attacks" goes double for Angela. Isomorphic 05:34, 26 May 2005 (UTC)

Hmm, let's see, Nicki claimed that female sexuality is like "puttering around in a Yugo." As a female with intense sexual urges (who knows countless other perfectly normal women who are the same), I resent that stereotype. It is stupid, spurious, and disgusting. If that bigot has the right to poison Wiki articles with such spurious views, why don't I have the right to counter that bigotry? -- Angela

Question for you, Isomorphic, would you have the same problem with a person of color who flamed someone in response to being called a 'nigger'? If not then perhaps you need to reconsider your response. For someone who is transgender, being referred to by an inappropriate pronoun, or gendered name, or as a 'pretend' male (or female as the case may be) is the equivalent of being referred to by that racial epithet. Of course Angela's inane comments do about as much harm to me as someone calling my partner a 'nigger' (that is nada. To be honest, she's kind of amusing.) However, I believe you may be judging this by a double standard. I would be interested, however, to hear your comments about the appropriate response in the case of racial rather than gender identity bigotry. -Nick

LGBT[edit]

Hi Nick! Could you have a look at Talk:LGBT#Adding more detail - seems before this debate goes on and on and on, a word from an MD might really help there. Thanks a lot, AlexR 23:27, 28 July 2005 (UTC)

OK, I will have a look at it tonight. NickGorton 16:17, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Hormone replacement therapy (trans)[edit]

Hi Nick. I was struggling for an alternative to 'non-trans' women as it didn't read very well. Cisgender is a whole lot better than 'natal'. Thanks for the correction! - Pete C 20:27, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Re: "Decency" project[edit]

Don't worry about that too much - it is hardly the first time that this kind of crusaders try to change the way WP works (although it is the first time they made up a "project" for it), and so far, they have not been exactly successfull. Might make for an interesting round of debates, though ;-) – AlexR 08:58, 17 August 2005 (UTC)


Category[edit]

Placed category physician on your user page.--Nomen Nescio 10:34, August 27, 2005 (UTC)

[edit]

Hi: My name is Tess and I work for a global independent research firm in New York. I am interested in hiring you for a Wikipedia editing project, based on your technology and medical experience and expertise. I attempted to email you through your user page. If you received it, please read it over and contact me with any questions. If you did not receive this email, please let me know and I would be more than happy to tell you more about this project. (You can call 512-651-1797 or email tfurman@glgroup.com). Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon! Tess - Gerson Lehrman Group 19:37, 28 September 2005 (UTC)


New Emergency Physician category and collaboration[edit]

I've started a new category of emergency physicians to encourage greater interest in related articles. Please help me to expand and improve the article on emergency department and perhaps later Emergency Medicine - perhaps we will eventually reach featured article status for these subjects.--File Éireann 18:05, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

The article Emergency department has now been nominated for an Article Improvement Drive. I would be very pleased if you could go to the Article Improvement link above and back the nomination. Its near the bottom of the page--File Éireann 19:39, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

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.
