Don't remove references[edit]

Please don't remove references. Requesting additional citations via fact templates is perfectly ok, but removing existing references can be seen as vandalism unless you have verified that they are wrong. I have just double checked them and they are ok. If you feel that the article is non-neutral, try discussing the issue at talk.

Hello, and thanks for asking! For whatever reason, the photo you tried to add to the article LGBT parenting did not show up, as you can see in this revision, so I went ahead and removed the image until the problem could be straightened out. To be entirely honest, I'm not sure what the problem is, but I would guess that you either accidentally made a typo while typing the image name, or the image was deleted for violating some sort of Wikipedia policy. I tried to find the image and fix the problem before removing it from the article entirely, but I couldn't come across anything that I thought might be the image you were trying to insert, so I went ahead and removed it. I know I'm probably not being the most helpful person in the world at the moment, seeing as I can't really tell you what went wrong, but if you have any other questions about the issue I'd be more than willing to do what I can. —Mears man (talk) 14:32, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Welcome to the LGBT WikiProject![edit]

Hi, Plywak, 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!

  • 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.

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

Thanks, and happy editing!
