Turtle Creek Chorale - LGBT?[edit]

I'm curious as to why TCC's board of directors does not want TCC to be affilated with the Wikipedia LGBT Studies. Given TCC's very public profile as a gay men's organization (e.g. the recent PBS documentary), this seems an odd decision. Thanks. MusicMen 23:15, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

MusicMen, I apologize for speaking on behalf of the board. The TCC webmaster who is also on the board prefers that the TCC Wikipedia entry be about the subject and asked me to remove the colorful images. We are more than happy to include a link to the Wikipedia LGBT Studies.

The Turtle Creek Chorale is a gay men's chorus. The mission of the TCC is to entertain, educate, unite and uplift the audiences and members through music that is distinguished for its innovation, diversity and artistic excellence. TCC supports the LGBT community in everything it does and encourages participation in the Wikipedia LGBT Studies as far as a category and a link to the studies.

If there are any questions about this, please contact Michael T McGary 19:52, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for this information. You should add the mission statement to the article :-) 20:42, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
Good idea. Will do! :-) Michael T McGary 21:18, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Proseline & citation suggestions for TCC article[edit]

Great to see the article growing. Some suggestions for you. Regarding the History section (copied with the webmaster's permission from TCC's website), it is in list-form but acts as proseline. Re-writing it in prose-form is more appropriate. You should also consider adding a reference citation regarding the source in the article itself and not just in the edit summary. Cheers!

Hi, Mcgarymi, 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!
