Citizen grand jury

Hi, I hate to bother you, but do you have any references to improve this article, which has some serious issues. Please fix the issues tagged in the article. Bearian (talk) 22:21, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

I ultimately haven't been able to find any *reliable* news sources on the 9/11 CGJs, only postings onto email lists and highly-partisan blogs affiliated with the truther movement, so I'll have a hard time with citing sources except for dating first mentions and so on. --RayneVanDunem (talk) 16:00, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Citizen grand jury

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Citizen grand jury has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This is not an actual procedure, any sources cited are directed to these pretend 'grand juries' with derision. This is a made up 'procedure' without any recognition by conspiracy theorists.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Dave Dial (talk) 00:12, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

It Gets Better Project

Hi, thanks for your contributions to this article. I did trim the unsourced names you added earlier. Enforcing WP:NLIST may be a little pedantic but with any potentially controversial article (and LGBT-related articles do tend to be seen as such) it is better to stay on top of the Biographies of living persons guidelines rather than assuming that issues will be resolved in the longer term. If you have suggestions for improvement please do raise them on the article talk page. Thanks, (talk) 18:01, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Libyafeb17.com

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Libyafeb17.com requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Tarret talk 16:33, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Brevik and blacklisted site cite

Hi,

I reverted your most recent edit to Brevik because of the use of the blacklisted site as a cite. I don't see any problem with your edit other than the use of that cite though so feel free to put it back without the blacklisted site... or perhaps you could work to get that site unblacklisted as from a very brief look at it I can't see why it should be blacklisted in the first place.

Proposed deletion of Chris Seelbach (politician)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Chris Seelbach (politician) has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Eeekster (talk) 00:08, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

re NJ Legislative District Template

As I'm sure you realized, this whole district thing has been a work in progress, with some updated articles, some that need updating, a bunch of redirects and some missing. They are all now united on a much-needed template, which will help readers jump from one district article to another and highlight some of the redlinks that need to be addressed. Thanks for taking the time to build the template and update the articles. Alansohn (talk)

Thanks. I will get back in touch with you about the LGBT India stuff after a few weeks.

Template: GLAAD Media Awards

Hi there. I see you've been working on new individual category pages for the GLAAD Media Awards. It's something I've thought we've needed, but I never have the time to work on it, so I'm glad to see someone working on them. I'm leaving you this message regarding the GLAAD Media Awards template. I see you've created a lot of redlinks in the navbox template for GLAAD category pages that we don't have yet. I realize you may be planning on working on the pages and I wholeheartedly support your efforts, but there are rather strict rules about redlinks in templates (and several editors strict about enforcing them). I personally don't think they hurt anything and I've previously defended the use of redlinks in the GLAAD navbox to show the "history" of the GLAAD Awards ceremonies, but quite a few editors are sticklers for the rules and will never go for 30+ category redlinks in a navbox template, so I've removed the redlinked pages for now - but feel free to add them back one by one as you create the individual pages. I completely rewrote the GLAAD Media Award "mother" page last year, so I don't want you to think I'm just trying to give you a hard time - but I thought it was best that I clean up the navbox before another editor who knows/cares much less about the subject came along and edited it for us. --- Crakkerjakk (talk) 14:27, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Jonathan Capehart

A tag has been placed on Jonathan Capehart, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Moreover, please add more verifiable sources, not only 3rd party sources. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate).

The David Kato memorial is here: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=64969752 Those photos there are new, uploaded since my last message to you. People keep uploading photos that violate copyright law. IF one of them is there legitimately, perhaps we can get permission to use it here on WP. Will have to see.
For several good reasons, Wikipedia doesn't consider FAG as a reliable source (and certainly no circular references are allowed):

Speedy deletion nomination of Reaction button

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Reaction button requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 23:59, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Reaction button

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Reaction button has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Web content without any claim to notability; doesn't appear to be the subject of any coverage in reliable sources; article is composed entirely of original research

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 00:22, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Congratulations!

I'm so impressed at how soon you were able to create a page for new Brig. Gen. Tammy S. Smith. It was a thorough and excellent job.

Egypt constituencies etc.

Hi there! I see you've been adding some Egypt stuff recently - how btw did you intend the lede of List of constituencies in Egypt to go? The real reason I'm pinging you is that I've been trying to get to grips with the people elected to Egypt's People's Assembly and Constituent Assembly - see a work in userpage progress here - and any help, thoughts about how best to lay things out etc. are very welcome. Best, Dsp13 (talk) 16:52, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for pinging. The problem is that there are two types of seemingly-overlapping constituencies: "single-member" (although that's either one or two members from each constituency, but no more than that and based on plurality voting) and "multi-member party-list". I have to hash out how this will look if we're going to create articles on them (i.e. the titles, such as "First District of Cairo (single-member constituency)" vs. "First District of Cairo (multi-member constituency)"). Even the Arabic Wikipedia has only articles on two or three constituencies of the Assembly, so we'd largely be going off of Egyptian news sites for who won what district in what way. Ugh. But it's good that you've started on the bio articles lists already. --RayneVanDunem (talk) 14:39, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
The Carnegie list lists both sorts of MPs, assigning them districts, but you're right that Cairo etc. seem to have different numbers of single-member and multi-member districts. I was also stumped at that point. Dsp13 (talk) 21:49, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Category:LGBT nobility

Hi. You have been adding Category:LGBT nobility to a number of articles, but I don't think they fit. British nobility is made up of the peers (Dukes, Earls, Counts, Barons, etc.) and the landed gentry (a rather vague group that is hard to define). If you want to include knights you may want to revise the category name. Road Wizard (talk) 11:49, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

I'd probably stick British LGBT peers in their own subcategory and stick LGBT knights/dames (the two main categories, but are knights considered noble in the UK?). But I was only going off of Category:Noble titles's inclusion of these titles. --RayneVanDunem (talk) 12:07, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
In the UK some knights may fall into the category of landed gentry (people with large amounts of land) and therefore be considered noble.
If you add the description from Category:Noble titles to your new category - that it is based on a "broad definition of nobility." Then you should be safe enough. I'd stick the knights into the subcategory as soon as possible though as good faith editors will be reverting you as I did here before starting this discussion. Road Wizard (talk) 13:01, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
OK, I created subcats for "LGBT peers > LGBT life peers". Now how do I categorize "LGBT knights"? It's more correct to say "Gay knights", "lesbian dames", "bisexual knights/dames", "transgender knights/dames", etc., but will categorizing every LGBT recipient of KBE/DBE along those lines make sense? I'm confused, and I'm even tempted to just say "LGBT recipients of chivalric honours (by nationality/by title)", which is probably butchery of English to someone who is an anal pedant. --RayneVanDunem (talk) 22:34, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Post by Manxwoman

Surely, if you are going to have go down this route, it would be easier and a catch-all if your new Category was just labelled Homosexual. But it would follow that a category of Heterosexual people is going to then have to be created as well. I suppose you could then sub-divide that category to "people who prefer redheads, or brunettes" etc., but is it REALLY necessary... After all, someone's sexuality is a private matter, isn't it? Manxwoman (talk) 17:30, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Hello, ma'am, your first point would be inaccurate and too broad, as not all non-heterosexual or non-cisgender individuals are homosexual. Your second point would be legitimate if you felt that persons' heterosexualities are not emphasized enough in an obviously-homosexual-majority world, am I right? Your third point about "people who prefer" only makes sense if we were talking about "preferences" rather than orientations, as "preferences" are rather lightweight when describing with whom someone wishes to spend anywhere from a night to their whole life. Your fourth point is only legitimate if the persons cares to refuse disclosure of their sexual orientation in their lifetimes (if the person is living, of course) or if their family members make such disclosures in their lifetimes; "J. Edgar Hoover? No. Harvey Milk? Yes." --RayneVanDunem (talk) 17:48, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

You make several interesting, though arguable, points, but I repeat my question that you glossed over: Is it REALLY necessary? Apart from making some sort of political (with a small p) point, who cares who someone sleeps/lives with, unless it has a direct effect on their/our lives? Manxwoman (talk) 18:29, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Having just re-read your posting, I assume you made a typo when you said "an obviously-homosexual-majority world". Come on! You are joking and/or trying to make a POV here aren't you? Manxwoman (talk) 20:05, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Because the state - every nation-state - cares about who their citizens sleep with, especially if children are born or adopted through such relationships. Almost every nation-state provides some sort of leniency for those (mostly heterosexual) relationships which result in childbirth or childraising, almost every nation-state penalizes a less-acceptable type of family, almost every nation-state with a monarchial former government has prioritized the inheritance of noble titles (where heritable) through natural, "of the body" means and "legitimate" births, resulting in countless noble titles dying without "legitimate" issue. All of this means that those who were oriented to relationships with someone of the same gender (or were simply publicly lifelong "bachelors") were historically likely to have highly-problematic relationships with and within the aristocracy of their countries, and that those who now possess life titles (knighhoods, life peerages, baronetcies) not only have somewhat-less problematic relationships with their national aristocracies (i.e., being stripped of their titles when possible, fleeing from or being subjected to arrest and prosecution on the basis of their orientation, ostracization and exile, execution), but stand to gain from further integration of their families into such aristocracies. Such is the interesting history of non-exclusively-heterosexual nobles and royals and their relationships with the nation-state to the present, which should be evaluated on a country-by-country basis. That's one reason why I care "who someone sleeps/lives with", and how such relationships have been treated by powers that be and have been. (And yes, I was being purposefully facetious with the "majority-homosexual-world" thing. Kind of a spin on the "shipping gays to islands/concentration camps/desert to die off because of no babies" meme, which is always fun to hear from upstanding patriots.) --RayneVanDunem (talk) 20:45, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Interesting and I think that you have answered your own question about listing non-hereditary Knighthoods (such as Dirk Bogarde, where this all began) but still no answer to the previous question about publicly stating someone's sexuality in general: Is it REALLY necessary...? Does it matter in the end? If someone chooses not to publicly state who they sleep with, be it man, woman or sheep and as long as they are not being hypocritical by publicly stating one orientation and practising another, then who really cares and should it not be a private matter? Live and let live. Manxwoman (talk) 13:22, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
