Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Pauci leones, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Let me know if you need assistance[edit]

I agree about the learning curve for new editors. There are people here who wish to write articles, and there are people here who wish to write (and enforce) rules. The latter have caused a situation that discourages new editors. The most important rule is to find a good source (book, newspaper, academic journal) and to cite it when making changes to articles. Take a look at how to cite a source, then you will be fine. If anyone gives you a hard time or if you have any questions, please let me know. Again, welcome!

Same here. If you need anything then let me know. Congratulations on the new name. Jenova20 09:05, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Classroom coordination[edit]

FYI...this may or may not interest you. Viriditas (talk) 00:17, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, I will take a look. I work primarily with freshmen in the natural sciences. We invest a lot of time teaching (trying to teach) them the difference between what is reliable and verifiable (!) and hearsay, between disproof (science) and proof(religion).

This, obviously, precludes the use of sources which are as easily vulnerable to damage as Wikipedia is. I'll read the article and learn from it. Thanks, again.

Question[edit]

I was confused what you meant by, "Too many LGBT editors and fair admins. were spending too much time fighting prejudice against me as an IP." Could you expound on this, because I'm having trouble making correct sense of it. If you don't wish to, that's no problem at all. Thank you! Doc talk 23:21, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

DOMA[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for the kind words, but I am fairly sure I didn't make the contribution you have in mind (though I have [ contributed] to DOMA in the past). —Scheinwerfermann T·C23:24, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Skype[edit]

Did you even read the link you re-added to the Skype article? it's a barely coherent (english is clearly not the writer's first language) linkspam blog - this is the first line of the link:

In our very early post about this we gave idea about it, now it is officially declared that Microsoft took over skype. Rear here for previous article. --Cameron Scott (talk) 11:10, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Huh? it's an external link - how am I going to 'clean it up"? It seems to me that you seem to think you reverted back in some content rather than a low quality spam link - are you actually reading what you are reverting or just hitting buttons? --Cameron Scott (talk) 12:02, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
Double huh - Your refusal to even consider cleaning up what was not the best English in the article is, however, not worth doing battle over. it is an external link, I cannot clean up the content of an external website. I'm increasingly baffled by this conversation. --Cameron Scott (talk) 19:17, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Pauci. 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) 17:59, 13 May 2014 (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!
