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!

Feminist SF Page
My name is Daisy and I am currently enrolled in a Feminist SF Course at the University of Oregon in which we have been assigned a wikipedia project. Myself and three other students from the class are working to revamp this page and hopefully add some great new contributions. Do you have any advice for us on what we could do to make this page even better? It would mean a lot to us little feminists! So far, we are planning a more comprehensive timeline of authors and their books, as well as go over the overall organization of the page.
- Hi @Dahlsto2: (Daisy), S, P, & A -- Welcome! So glad to have you here.
- Do you mean Feminist science fiction? Thanks for checking in. I'd start by looking back at the talk page & the history, to get a sense -- my guess is you already looked at one or both of those since you contacted me. (-: A timeline of notable publications / works in feminist SF history would be a great idea -- eventually to be split off. The one thing you want to be sure of is to have references and footnotes for assertions or important works; this is true of all things in Wikipedia and especially true for gender, POC, & other minority interests, which are less understood / recognized by some editors. --Lquilter (talk) 02:47, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes! I do mean that page. I was wondering also how legitimate a source an author's personal webpage would be as a source. For example, in my list I am making of authors, I am including their most notable awards and works, most of which are listed on their personal websites is not on their own Wiki page. I can find other sources most likely (like the award pages or lists on wiki or elsewhere), I just feel like linking to their own page is important? What do you think?
- Hi Daisy -- You can't use an author's individual / personal website to establish notability. But you can use it as a citation for basic facts. It's always better to try to find a media site if you can. Locus is a great cite for awards. You can use databases -- like the SF Awards+ Database at http://www.sfadb.com/ -- to cite to basic facts. .... As for linking to the author's personal page, generally, it's mostly frowned on to link to these kinds of resources in references. They're not permanent, for one thing, and not considered "reliable sources", for another. So they'll do in a pinch but better to get media sites. IF your aim is to make sure that the author's website is linked, check on the Wikipedia entry for that person -- you can put the link in "external links", and/or in the infobox in the "personal website" section. --Lquilter (talk) 17:13, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pearson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
