Removing tags from Same-sex Marriage in New York[edit]

I appreciate your efforts of contributing articles in Wikipedia, especially of current issues.

Stop putting external links in edit summaries[edit]

Hi, I saw your edits on Template:Same-sex unions. Edit summaries are for explanations of changes you make, not for urls. If you want to explain an edit with a link, do it on the talk page.

LGBT rights in Utah WP: Infobox references[edit]

Thanks Ron 1987. Your edits to LGBT rights in Utah encouraged me to review how similar pages for other states distinguish the lack of certain state protections when other protections exist within state entities like universities and political subdivisions like counties, cities and districts. Several pages include references in the main body of the article, and shorter references in the WP: Infobox. I published similar short references for the Utah Infobox which explain that the state isn't completely void of protections. The references are proved by the main body of the article. In Utah, as in many states, such protections are currently creations of state entities and political subdivisions, not the state itself. Thanks again for helping make the difference clear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:25, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

New Hampshire Questions[edit]

New Hampshire is trying to Repeal there Same-Sex Marriage Law. Where would that go on Same-sex marriage legislation in the United States? Would it be under 2.2?

I don't know where it would go or not. It looks like they are trying to take all the marriages from now on and change them to civil unions. However everyone who was married is still considered married in the state. It would be just future marriages.

Seeking consensus on when to edit File:Samesex marriage in USA.svg following new legislation/court-rulings[edit]

Hello, I have noticed you made edits on File talk:Samesex marriage in USA.svg and/or File talk:Samesex marriage in USA.svg/Archive 5, so I am contacting you to take part in a newly-formed discussion at File talk:Samesex marriage in USA.svg as for whether we should update the map directly when a new legislation or court-order hits the books or if we should wait until said action takes effect. Historically, we have been updating the map when the new legislation is signed (or veto overrode or won at the ballot box, etc.), and thus it can be inferred that the consensus is to update as soon as one of those occurs. A discussion has emerged in regards to whether we should begin updating from the effective date instead of from the date of signing/etc. If you have an opinion over this matter please post it at File_talk:Samesex_marriage_in_USA.svg#When_to_update_map.3F_Effective_date_or_signing.2Fruling_date

European Certificate of Succession[edit]

Are u sure that it is only a recommendation? it's listed as a regulation - hence immediately enforceable as law in all member states! Furthermore, if it were a recommendation the UK wouldn't have insisted not to be included in the draft! Olliyeah (talk) 18:38, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

I know that we talked about it some time ago but the same matter came up in the news today ( it's a regulation proposed by the EU-Commision (hence not an "opinion" by the European parliament - which usually are not legally binding)!Olliyeah (talk) 14:27, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Marriage in Brazil[edit]

Excuse me, same-sex marriage is legal in Brazil (although it can't be performed directly) the country's Supreme Court ruled that two women can be legally married, and I even included a reference [3]. Even the article on Same-sex marriage in Brazil states it "In Brazil, a same-sex couple may convert their civil union into marriage with the approval of a state judge, if approved that marriage is recognized in all the national territory". --DrkFrdric (talk) 18:54, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, but the ruling states that two people of the same sex can be legally married in Brazil, maybe it wasnt the Supreme Court, but as long as the Supreme Court doesnt strike the decision down, it stands. Now, you are right, not every single judge is going to perform these marriages, but a same-sex marriage is not illegal in Brazil, that was the essence of the ruling. So, same-sex marriage is legal in Brazil, even if not a single couple is allowed to marry, the court ruling was clear: Brazilian laws permit same-sex marriage. But obvioulsy, its not like Argentina where marriages are freely performed, that's why I put a "conditional" next to it. Only one same-sex marriage being declared legal is enough to show that a country's laws dont forbid marriage between two persons of the same-sex and as I write there are probably nearly a hundred valid same-sex marriages in Brazil. --DrkFrdric (talk) 19:26, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
With all due respect, the ruling does not give them permission to get married. The point was "is the marriage of two persons of the same-sex legal under Brazilian law?" and the court said yes. --DrkFrdric (talk) 20:02, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, that's clear, but that's not the point. The question is: "is same-sex marriage legal in X country?". In Brazil, it is, as the court ruled; even if there still isn't a way for every couple to get that right easily. --DrkFrdric (talk) 20:24, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Certainly, same-sex couples can get married in Brazil as easily as straight couples (although they all can, because there a lot of judges giving marriage licenses in almost every Brazilian state), but this turns Barzil into a "special case", because same-sex marriage is legal, but there still isn't a bill that regulates how same-sex couples can get married, that's why couples have to go with judges, but then as I sais, same-sex marriage is legal. So we should at least add a note to make people know of the situation in the country, because it certainly is not illegal. I think the "(conditional)" illustrates this, but we could also asdd a note, as I said. --DrkFrdric (talk) 20:42, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

The colors are from Colorbrewer, which accommodates RG color blindness. Also, one of the problems with the current scheme is that it suggests that state-recognized marriage (light blue) is less legal recognition than no recognition of marriage (medium blue), which is backwards.
The distinction between 'most' (married in all but name) and 'some' (distinctly less than the rights of married) is not ours, but taken from the ILGA.

What the hell happened to WP:COMMONNAME? How the hell is "Question 1" more accessible for readers (who, especially as time marches on) are unlikely have a clue one what the ballot position of the question was? How is it absurd to reverse a move that was made without consensus as admitted on the talk page by the proposer? Aside from a visceral love of irrelevancies like "official" names, do you have any reason for your reversion? Having an article called Proposition 8 or Proposition 187 is reasonable because that is, in popular culture, what those are known as, but "Question 1" has no such currency. -Rrius (talk) 16:23, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill - Tellers[edit]

Hi Ron,

The UK Parliamentary system is a little antiquated and anachronistic so I entirely understand why people from other countries often make mistakes when describing how it works. There are some guides produced by Parliament on votes and the roles of tellers here:




Although tellers do count the votes - and always support the votes they are counting - they do not technically vote themselves and so are in a slightly different position to all of the rest of the MPs who voted a certain way. As such, it's always useful to make this clear and the Parliamentary guidance in the third link notes that "...reports on some websites will, for instance, report “189 + 2 tell” as having voted in a certain way".

I hope this helps :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chid12 (talkcontribs) 10:24, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

I know others have said it before here on your talk page, but I'd like to remind you to use edit summaries so others have an idea what your edits change or intend to do. (I know I don't always use it myself, but I try to think of it.) Thanks! SPQRobin (talk) 14:20, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Date formatting[edit]

I just reverted your change in date format because WP:BADDATEFORMAT says that DD-MM-YYYY is an "unacceptable date format". It looks like you've been making a bunch of these edits, so you should probably go back and fix them. TDL (talk) 19:04, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Recognition of Foreign marriage in Malta[edit]

My name is Kenneth Grima a Maltese citizen and I phoned few days ago at the Public Registry Department in Malta to the head of the department Ms.Melinda Zahra to see what documents I need to register my marriage ( I married in 2005 in The Netherlands as my husband is Dutch) and it is gonna be recognized as a marriage but they will be registering them from mid to end of June 2014 as soon as all paper work is effected. The Law although published in both Maltese and English the Maltese version is the effective one and in the Maltese version it is clearly stated that foreign marriages effected abroad will be recognized as marriages and nothing inferior to that. If you want to check for yourself, her e-mail is One cannot base on the English version as Maltese is the official language when it comes to laws and legal matters, so if you are not a Maltese native speaker it will be very difficult for you or for anybody else to translate correctly the Maltese version and the English one is just for guidance more than offical laws in fact it is stipulated by law that if there are any differences between the 2 versions the Maltese one takes always precedence.

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Ron. (I think you are familiar with this efforts, but...) 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) 16:43, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Same sex marriage in Kosovo; using the old constitution.[edit]

The constitution that you provided information from is no longer available. The new constitution was ruled in 2008 and it clearly states the same sex marriage position. The new constitution made the headlines with this topic.

The 2004 Family law is no longer available. The constitution of the REPUBLIC of Kosovo can be read here: — Preceding unsigned comment added by PjeterPeter (talkcontribs) 16:52, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

LGBT rights in x articles[edit]

Can you give me a reason why you reverted the neutral term 'public promotion of LGBT issues' and added the liberally biased term 'Pride parade'? The term 'Pride parade' is not a WP:NPOV. – Plarem (User talk) 09:58, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Your term is certanly not neutral and is weird. Stop to impose your personal views. There is no consensus for this change. You should read BRD, Consensus. Ron 1987 (talk) 21:02, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
