Wiki Loves Pride![edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • 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. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

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


Thanks, and happy editing!

Stop posting on my talk page?[edit]

Could you please stop with the posting on my talk page, especially with the long posts that I have no intention of reading, because frankly, I am not that interested in knowing what is written in it (I would have read it if it was shorter). Would have answered to you on my talk page, but well - I can't. Either way, don't worry, you're not going to see me on 'Wayward Pines' etc. again. One more thing, if you are planning to answer, answer here because it is very annoying that people are posting on my own talk page, when I can't write there. 2001:41D0:2:37CE:59B6:BAF2:29A9:1F3E (talk) 19:05, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

You should not be editing while you are blocked, whether with another username or anonymously. Not reading my comments because they are too long? Well that explains why you don't seem to know much about policies, they are too long for you to read? Hopefully you know why you were blocked and have learned from it, but I'm now having my doubts.— TAnthonyTalk 19:08, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
I honestly don't care if they ban this IP and I am really not trying to be anonymous or anything. You posted, I answered (I can't on my talk page because it is semi-protected). I have read policies, I know a lot about them. It's "too long to read" because I don't really feel like reading a half of page about/because of a single name of an editor and also, I just know that I would have a lot to comment on and I really don't feel like it. I know why I was blocked, what bothers me is that I can find at least three thing in that report that are false, made up, but nobody even cares about that. It also bothers me that I was not notified about being reported, so I couldn't even comment on it - basically punishment without giving a chance to explain yourself - it's like they do it in North Korea. But you have nothing to do with that report so there is no point in comlaining here about it. Anyhow, I got the point, but I also realized how people on Wikipedia work and what are they like (and I am really not implicating you here) and I just don't want to be a part of it. And it's not about being in any way offended or anything remotely similar, because I'm really not.
And just for future reference - if you find source unreliable, only source, not the content - you should use the "citation needed" tag, not delete the information as a whole.
BTW, I read what you had written on my talk page before I posted this second post and I could comment quite a few things, but I just really don't feel like it, because it is irrelevant now anyway. 2001:41D0:8:BB58:0:0:0:0 (talk) 19:37, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Discussion that needs answers.[edit]

I would like your opinion on this here please. Thank you. Jester66 (talk) 03:28, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

American films[edit]

See the hatnote at the top of Category:American films. WikiProject Film requests that articles be in the parent category as well as in the subcategories. I don't know how long the rule's been in force, but it's been a good while...several years at least. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 14:41, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks I didn't know that ... but I have a problem with a WikiProject going against WP:CAT, primarily because that policy is there for a reason, and also because editors like you trying to implement this are going to be continually opposed and reverted. Silly.— TAnthonyTalk 14:46, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
But thanks again for pointing that out, I'm going to look into it! — TAnthonyTalk 14:46, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
Any time. If I'm missing something, please do let me know, but I'm pretty sure the rule is still in force...I asked about it a few months ago and have seen nothing indicating a change since.
I tend to be of two minds about it myself...but since it's in place I figure it should be honored as far as possible, for consistency's sake. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 14:48, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

FYI navbox redirects[edit]

Regards this change, I have a little bit of CSS that makes it obvious that a redirect is present in a navbox/sidebar/some hat templates (unfortunate in the last case but I think it serves the purpose).

.navbox .mw-redirect, .vertical-navbox .mw-redirect { font-style: italic; color: red; }

That's how I so quickly noted your inclusion of a redirect. You can of course change the color, but I find the use of the color red makes the inclusion particularly obvious. The italics helps distinguish (above the use of the color) between red links and redirect links. Now if only anchor links emitted a class or something else easily manipulated by CSS... --Izno (talk) 23:33, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Great thanks I've added this to my vector file.— TAnthonyTalk 23:36, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Dude that is VERY cool! Thx again.— TAnthonyTalk 02:11, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Added citations to accusation of Tyler's "plagiarism" from Dune Encyclopedia[edit]

Okay, I concede that my citation did have problems. However, Tyler seems to have removed his claim from his blog (the link currently cited encounters a 404 Error) and so, I'm going to remove this from the page; hope that's fine.

On a related note, what is the procedure on Wikipedia for dubious claims made by reliable sources, (Is Brian Tyler's webpage reliable? Unbiased?) which can be easily seen to be false, but require "original research"? Do we say, "Statement X is true" or "Person Y claims that statement X is true"? I think the former should NOT be used, but will gladly hear any arguments you might have for it.

Thanks, I'm gong to comment on this as the CoD article.— TAnthonyTalk 14:25, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Organizations in A Song of Ice and Fire[edit]

Would you be interested in helping me expand this article, I've added about 25 sources. Valoem talk contrib 22:32, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

RfC: red links in navboxes[edit]

Would you accept a revised red link guideline that required a minimum of three blue links to existing stand-alone articles or lists, with at least 50% of all included links being blue, coupled with the clarification of the "succession" and "complete set" exceptions? Personally, I think that would be an extremely reasonable compromise, and if I can get 10 committed supporters, I'm ready to start lobbying previous !voters (not a violation of WP:CANVASS).
