Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi, Poppy. 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) 18:23, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Neil Slorance[edit]

Hi, I noticed you added the stub tag to my newly submitted article Neil Slorance. I must admit to being quite surprised, since stubs are generally much shorter. I was wondering what you think needs adding in order to upgrade it from stub status? I've asked the subject if he'd be willing to release a picture of himself under a Creative Commons licence, which he said he would be. I'm just waiting for him to get back to me about that. --Poppy Appletree (talk) 03:39, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Poppy Appletree. Maybe it wasn't the best choice using that stub template. Perhaps I should've used the cleanup template, mentioning as a reason that there were disambiguation pages, and others areas that could be improved, such as the infobox and false other people template. Thanks, en:User:Rtrust (talk). TS: 03:50, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
What changes would you recommend making to the infobox? Slorance is such an obscure surname that it seems unlikely that disambiguation would be an issue. I've removed the Other People tag since there isn't a disambiguation page - I'd copied the infobox of Alan Moore since I couldn't find a template for comic artists, and that must have gotten in there with it. --Poppy Appletree (talk) 04:10, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Hello again. You correctly removed the other people template, but you missed the travelouges disambiguation, which I corrected in this edit. en:User:Rtrust (talk) 04:14, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Okay, it wasn't clear that you meant a disambiguation issue regarding one of the wikilinks - I thought you meant regarding the lack of a bracketed description in the article title. What do you think needs improving regarding the infobox, and do you mind if I remove the stub tag? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Poppy Appletree (talkcontribs) 04:24, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
I am currently editing the page, so don't edit the stub to cause an edit conflict; I will, although. en:User:Rtrust (talk) 04:25, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! :) --Poppy Appletree (talk) 04:42, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
