Greetings from the North,

I saw that you had rsvp'd to the Wiki Loves Pride event in June. Who might I talk to about hosting a mini editathon during the Information Architecture Summit, May 5-8 in Atlanta? (iasummit.org). I am a member of the NYC Wikimedia group and have been accepted to host an editathon and introduction to Wikipedia editing activity as part of the conference game night, which is usually held on Saturday night. I would love to invite Wikipedia Atlanta members to participate as facilitators. I did an introduction to Wikipedia at this event last year in Minneapolis and was happy to get assistance from three local Wikipedians.

There is a possibility of an offsite meeting that is being arranged by attendees who had considered boycotting the event due to recent anti-LGBT legislation but felt a better idea might be to host an open discussion of inclusiveness and diversity. An editathon might be a good complement. I had seen the plans for a Wiki Loves Pride event in Atlanta in June so it could be a nice lead up to that activity: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wiki_Loves_Pride_2016/Atlanta

Please let me know if you are interested and I can forward additional details. Looking forward to my Atlanta visit! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nwhysel (talkcontribs) 12:20, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

@Nwhysel - Just saw this today - sorry. tdempsey (talk) 21:42, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Gilbert Baker[edit]

Hi there. I just came across your Gilbert Baker page, and I noticed that the content for it came almost directly from http://www.keywestcityofcolors.com/press/press_Gilbert.html. I looked around the site and couldn't find any information regarding it, but this might constitute a copyright violation. Instead of sending it to Wikipedia: Copyright problems where copyright violations go to die, I thought I'd appeal to you first to see if you wanted to fix it up and make it a bit more original. Let me know here or on the article talk page where I've copied this same comment. This is somebody I've never heard of, but I'd be interested in helping if you wanted. But I'll wait to hear from you.

Still not sure if this needs changing? tdempsey 03:03, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Cat:Gay Wikipedians[edit]

I just recently formed Cat:Gay Wikipedians; before that I was put in Cat:LGBT Wikipedians after it was decided to eliminate the original Cat:Queer Wikipedians (which someone else started up again). I started the new category because I'm gay, not "LGBT". I'm hoping other gay Wikipedians will join the category in the future. --Angr (t·c) 05:15, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Why? Why do we all have to belong to the same category? I have nothing in common with transsexuals and little in common with lesbians and bisexuals. It's like grouping Cat:Buddhist Wikipedians, Cat:Hindu Wikipedians, Cat:Jewish Wikipedians, Cat:Muslim Wikipedians, etc. into Cat:Non-Christian Wikipedians. --Angr (t·c) 06:02, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Good point - and I don't want a pissing match. I can agree to a Cat:Gay Wikipedians as a sub-category to Cat:LGBT Wikipedians and would hope you use both tags. I'm not for being so separate since there is much overlap in all the communities. Of course, there is specific information to communities, too.
But to have one person in a category? I would be interested in seeing how many people use it.
tdempsey 16:28, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
The point of subcategories is to be included only in the hierarchically lowest appropriate one. Ideally, IMO, Category:LGBT Wikipedians would have hardly any user pages in it at all, just four subcategories Category:Lesbian Wikipedians, Category:Gay Wikipedians, Category:Bisexual Wikipedians, and Category:Transsexual and transgendered Wikipedians (or the like). Anyone in the upper category would be there because they couldn't decide which lower cat they wanted to be in, or didn't like to say. As for being the only one in it, keep in mind, Category:Gay Wikipedians is only six days old, it takes time before people notice new categories and decide to add themselves to them. When I added Category:Anglican and Episcopalian Wikipedians in September I was the only one in it for almost four weeks; now it has twelve people. --Angr (t·c) 19:23, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
I think you are missing the point. The purpose of Category:LGBT Wikipedians is to list people working on Category:LGBT and its sub-categories - the standard agreed upon on this website. I am a gay man and would not join Category:Gay Wikipedians since it is not descriptive or inclusive for our purposes. -- tdempsey 23:51, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
I don't think that's the point of Category:LGBT Wikipedians at all. I think it's just a way for Wikipedians who consider themselves lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transsexual to identify themselves as such; it's no different from the categories of Wikipedians by location, religion, politics, profession, or any of the other subcategories of Category:Wikipedians. I'm not working on Category:LGBT or its subcategories, nor am I listed at Wikipedia:LGBT notice board#Active Wikipedians interested in LGBT issues. I'm just a gay Wikipedian. --Angr (t·c) 10:23, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

LGBT-activist-stub[edit]

I just noticed that you added both LGBT-stub and activist-stub to the Joe Solmonese article yesterday and I wished to make you aware that there is a recently created stub {{LGBT-activist-stub}} for activists who specialise in this one area of activism. Caerwine Caerwhine 04:06, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! I recently asked a question about this and you cleared it up. - tdempsey 04:09, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Categorizing[edit]

Hi there...just a couple of comments about some recent categorization you've done:

  1. Wikipedia actually has a pretty explicit rule against filing articles in categories and subcategories of the first category at the same time; what this means is that if an article is already filed in Category:LGBT media or Category:Transgender and transsexual people, then it can't also be filed in the general Category:LGBT.
  2. Pipetext after the category name is actually a filing scheme; you should only use a pipe followed by a space when you're applying the category to the absolute topmost defines-what-the-category-is article. So for Category:LGBT, the only article that should have [[:Category:LGBT| ]] on it is LGBT itself. Everything else should have either the category name with no pipetext at all if the appropriate filing letter is the first letter of the article title, or pipetext that defines how the article should be sorted alphabetically (e.g. [[:Category:Transgender and transsexual people|Araujo, Gwen]] or [[:Category:LGBT media|Body Politic, The]]) if the appropriate filing letter isn't the first letter of the article title.

Hope that helps a bit... Bearcat 02:14, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, Bearcat!
I appreciate the tip. I am trying to get much more involved with Wikipedia and the LGBT category - and I was trying to figure out some of the finer points of categorizing. Let me know how I can be better in this area.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Mforeman2004.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Mforeman2004.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 00:46, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Logo ncod lg.gif[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Logo ncod lg.gif. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by an adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Cavenba (talkcontribs) 00:58, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Gulf Coast TIDE[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Gulf Coast TIDE, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://gctide.org/about.php. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 19:39, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

The text in question is "Brand Statement & Mission Statement" from the Gulf Coast TIDE website. I am a board member of GCT and have permission to use the text and logo.

Speedy deletion of Gulf Coast TIDE[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Gulf Coast TIDE requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. - Toon05 18:19, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Solmonese_Joe72.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Solmonese_Joe72.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Calliopejen1 (talk) 20:40, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Tdempsey. 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) 16:32, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Blank articles nominated for speedy deletion[edit]

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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Bubba Dee requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. 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.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here.

More of the same …[edit]

A number of pages with no content were published to the public Wikipedia article namespace. It's usually a much better idea to develop an article elsewhere on Wikipedia, perhaps in the draft or user namespaces, before making it part of the public face of the encyclopedia. (See WP:Drafts and WP:HUD. Each article can still be a collective project, with multiple contributors, in such workspaces.) These have been nominated for speedy deletion under category A3:

I'm guessing that these are part of the upcoming edit-a-thon for Wiki Loves Pride 2014, which certainly looks like a Good Thing — this just wasn't the best way to start those articles.

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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Manuel's Tavern requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. 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.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Orphaned non-free image File:Manuels Tavern Logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Manuels Tavern Logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:33, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Replaceable fair use File:Jamie Thomas King.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Jamie Thomas King.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. January (talk) 15:53, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Working session on architecting the information of Georgia House Bill 757[edit]

Hi Tdempsey, I am organizing a mini editathon as part of the Information Architecture Summit to be held May 4-8 at the Atlanta Omni Hotel. One of the hosting organizations, the Information Architecture Institute (iainstitute.org) is doing a special working session at the Center for Civil and Human Rights on Saturday evening, May 7 on architecting the information of Georgia House Bill 757. I offered to facilitate a Wikipedia editathon for this event and could incorporate a lesson on finding and using wikidata to research local legislation, and am reaching out to local Wikipedians to invite participation. It seems it would be a good lead in activity to the Atlanta Wiki Loves Pride event in June. Is this something you would be interested in?

Wiki Loves Pride 2016[edit]

As a participant of WikiProject LGBT studies, you are invited to participate in the third annual Wiki Loves Pride campaign, which runs through the month of June. The purpose of the campaign is to create and improve content related to LGBT culture and history. How can you help?

  1. Create or improve LGBT-related Wikipedia pages and showcase the results of your work here
  2. Document local LGBT culture and history by taking pictures at pride events and uploading your images to Wikimedia Commons
  3. Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Looking for topics? The Tasks page, which you are welcome to update, offers some ideas and wanted articles.

This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. The group's mission is to develop LGBT-related content across all Wikimedia projects, in all languages. Visit the affiliate'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 talk page.

Thanks, and happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:48, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
