Welcome to the LGBT WikiProject![edit]

Hi, Icelilly, welcome to WikiProject LGBT Studies!

We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying, categorizing, and improving articles regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and intersex people. LGBT Studies covers people, culture, history, and related subjects concerning sexual identity and gender identity - this covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated! Some points that may be helpful:

  • Our main aim is to help improve articles, so if someone seeks help, please try to assist if you are able. Likewise feel free to ask for help, advice or clarification.
  • Many important discussions take place on the project's main discussion page; it is highly recommended that you watchlist it.
  • If you have another language besides English, please consider adding yourself to our translation section, to help us improve our foreign LGBT topics.
  • 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're going to stay awhile, please create a square in our project 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!

Malware Wikiproject[edit]

Hi Icelilly, and welcome to the Malware wikiproject! I see you have signed up for various wikiprojects, but haven't participated yet. Here are two pages to get you going: Wikipedia:Contributing to Wikipedia and Wikipedia:New contributors' help page. If you have any question, just ask any editor. --DanielPharos (talk) 23:08, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much! I've been very busy with school so I haven't done much but I hope to get started soon! Icelilly (talk) 00:49, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Userboxes[edit]

Hi there - welcome to the Userboxes Project!! I think you will find this project is more disorganized, but more fun than some of the more serious projects! It is also nice to see more Wikipedians from Ottawa on the project! Happy boxing! - Ahunt (talk) 01:06, 24 November 2008 (UTC) (also from Ottawa)

Thanks! I look forward to being part of the team! Icelilly (talk) 01:16, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Here is one way you could help out - we are looking for humourous userboxes that people may have made and not listed anywhere. If you are prowling around anyone's user page and see a funny userbox they can be added to the listing at Wikipedia:Userboxes/Wikipedia/humour. - Ahunt (talk) 14:22, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Humorous userboxes? Will do! Icelilly (talk) 21:56, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

I thought you might like that! - Ahunt (talk) 23:02, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Years[edit]

In 2009, WikiProject Years developed a guideline for the inclusion of events in year articles, especially more recent years.

Important policy discussions took place in January 2009 at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (dates and numbers) and at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Years.

Icelilly! Thank You for your assistance with WikiProject Malware! To better serve Wikipedia, this project has been closed. We thank you for all of your hard work, and we would like to invite you to our new Wikiproject at WikiProject Computer Security. We hope to see you soon!

NOTICE to all members of WikiProject Pokémon[edit]

Following a discussion on the Project's talk page, we will be updating WikiProject Pokémon's list of participants. To do this, all users previously listed as "Active" have been moved to the "Inactive" list; after this change anyone may add/re-add their name to the "Active" participants list. As your name was one of those on the Active members list, I am notifying you in case your active interest remains. Thank you for your cooperation in our efforts to keep our list of active participants as accurate and up-to-date as possible. ~ Amory (usertalkcontribs) 04:24, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject LGBT studies Newsletter (June 2009)[edit]

  • Newsletter delivery by xenobot 17:27, 24 June 2009 (UTC)


Hi Icelilly!

I have put together a survey for female editors of Wikipedia (and related projects) in order to explore, in greater detail, women's experiences and roles within the Wikimedia movement. It'd be wonderful if you could participate!

It's an independent survey, done by me, as a fellow volunteer Wikimedian. It is not being done on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation. I hope you'll participate!

Just click this link to participate in this survey, via Google!

Any questions or concerns, feel free to email me or stop by my user talk page. Also, feel free to share this any other female Wikimedians you may know. It is in English, but any language Wikimedia participants are encouraged to participate. I appreciate your contributions - to the survey and to Wikipedia! Thank you!

Wikipedia:WikiProject Years[edit]

Hi, since your name's down on this project, I'm just writing to let you know that there's a discussion going on at the moment on how to format events – and in particular, events that go on for multiple days – on year pages. Your input would be appreciated. — Smjg (talk) 18:24, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride![edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.

Thanks, and happy editing!
