hi there![edit]

hello! i noticed you put your links back up, which i completely understand your reasoning to. however, two things i wanted to ask. the first is part of the Wikipedia:External Links policy, in which it states that:

"A website that you own or maintain, even if the guidelines above imply that it should be linked to. This is because of neutrality and point-of-view concerns; neutrality is an important objective at Wikipedia, and a difficult one. If it is relevant and informative, mention it on the talk page and let other — neutral — Wikipedia editors decide whether to add the link."

...is this a site you own or maintain as Senior Research Scientist? the second thing i wanted to ask is obviously you have a huge breathe of experience around, as you point out, a very neglected area of HIV. i think the link would belong much better if you threw in some of your knowledge of it into the article. cheers.

Hi, RAShippy, 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!

Heya, are you planning to expand our coverage of LGBT gerontology? It's an underdeveloped area, as I'm sure you are aware. :) Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 21:39, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Sure, I'd be happy to adopt you. If I don't have the answers, I usually know where to find out. :) Replace your adoption box with {{adoptee|Dev920}} and it's official! I tend to let my adoptees go do their own thing and batter down my talkpage when they need info, advice or help, though I check up on them if they have been quiet for a while, just to see what's going on. Anything you want help with right now? Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 22:12, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

hello[edit]

i have been reading some of your work, and i'm greatly impressed with the way you put it all into perspective. You make complicated subjects simply understood. i'm currently living the new york area, and i'm working on a documentary based on older lgbt, and i'd be so honored if you'd be willing to give me some of your time to interview you.


thank you,
