Wikipedia's LGBT Community[edit]

Gay flag.svg

Hi, LightPhoenix!
You've indicated through various means (a userbox, membership in a category, etc) that you are part of the Wikipedia LGBT community, or are interested in Wikipedia's LGBT related pages. Welcome!

You may not know that Wikipedia has both an LGBT Notice Board and an LGBT Studies WikiProject. If you haven't yet done so, take a look at both of them. They sorely need attention and participation!

Some things on the "To-Do List" that merit particular attention include:

  1. Identifying topics/pages that need attention
  2. Identifying problems that need addressing
  1. Adding the LGBT template to appropriate pages
  2. Categorizing LGBT pages

Please feel free to participate in any or all of these activities! And if you feel like it, add yourself to either the Noticeboard Members or the WikiProject Participants - or both!

Glad you're a part of Wikipedia - and Thanks! This invitation posted here by SatyrTN -- talk
Please remove it if you so desire.

Fair use rationale for Image:Coat of Arms Maastricht.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Coat of Arms Maastricht.gif. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:25, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey there![edit]

Thought I'd just say hi. It's not too common on Wikipedia to find someone from the LGBT community that's interested aviation. At least not from what I've found so far. Are you a pilot as well? --Pilotboi 20:33, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Welcome![edit]

Welcome to the LGBT WikiProject![edit]

Drawing-Gay flag.png

Hi, LightPhoenix, 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!

LGBT rights tables (anti-discrimination column)[edit]

hey... you've been doing alot of good work fleshing out the tables, but wanted to raise one possible issue you might want to think about though. Using the term "anti-gay" discrimination is kind of ambiguous as to whether the table (literally) means only lesbian/gay discrimination, or if also is including transgender discrimination. I remember here in the US a year or 2 ago there was controversy in the LGBT community that a proposed national ENDA act did not include transgender persons. will leave the wording up to you, as you are more familiar w/ European LGBT rights (and Europe is the leader in these issues, so other tables would likely follow the Europe table style) thanks, Outsider80(User0529) (talk) 11:15, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm not well-versed in the various anti-discrimination laws either, but "sexual orientation" anti-discrimination definitely would not include gender identity/expression (unless the law specifically noted so). Maybe a format like column #2 (male/female) uses would work, like for example: (check-mark) sexual orientation since 2000<br>(x-mark) for gender identity/expression ... though a better solution might be to just split the column in two -- then "sexual orientation" and "gender identity/expression" could just be listed in the column header, instead of having to be specified in each cell. (note: the table is already pretty wide, but each column is set at 12.5% now, so maybe certain columns could be tightened up to make it work..) Outsider80(User0529) (talk) 16:34, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
I added the gender identity/expression column to Europe, will roll it out to more tables. The table has so many columns, I removed the "Notes" column (which was only being used on Turkey, for a see also I had added about EU accession) The Europe table originally didn't have a Notes column, but was added to standardize it with the other tables.

Move of Pakistanis in the Netherlands[edit]

Hi --- I see that you moved Dutch Pakistanis to Pakistani-Dutch recently by analogy to Pakistani Australian. However, not all countries or migrant groups use this convention of "country of origin first, country of residence second." For example, British Pakistani refers to U.K. residents of Pakistani origin or descent (and not Britons in Pakistan), and similarly the term Malaysian Chinese is used to refer to the overseas Chinese in Malaysia (and not Malaysians in China). Usually, we name the articles by referring to what name reliable sources use to refer to the population in question. In this case, no sources use the name "Pakistani Dutch", and only a few newspaper articles like [1] use the name "Dutch Pakistanis", but a several academic sources simply call them "Pakistanis in the Netherlands", which I thought would make a much clearer name for the article. If you have any comments, please leave it on the article's talk page. Cheers, cab (talk) 15:43, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

An exciting opportunity to get involved![edit]

Trophy.png

As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 23:01, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi LP. 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) 16:30, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Plantin premetro station[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 Plantin premetro station 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 an organization or company, 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.
