Hello, I'm Vonita

Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies![edit]

Hi, Vonita, 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!

Hi, Vonita! Yes, the collaboration effort hasn't really taken off, but it probably just needs someone to spur it on :)
We're not exactly apathetic - the project talk page is often lively. People seem to focus, though, on their areas of interest. Read through the talk page (and archives) to get a sense of what's been going on. Several people focus on reverting vandalism, and a few people have worked articles up to FA status. In fact, one of the areas that seems to get constant activity is the Jump-a-class, where we "compete" (though not really) by taking a stub article and working on it for a week. The goal is to get the article as high up the rating scale as you can in that time. I recommend that one.
Another activity, one that Dev and I have been spending quite a bit of time on is researching and sourcing every article on LGBT people. It's a bit daunting, but quite fun to read through so many biographies.
Anyway, say "Hi" on the talk page when you get a chance, and Happy Editing! -- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 01:16, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Welcome to the Wikiproject, Vonita! Satyr is completely correct in that we each tend to focus on what interests us the most. I tend to vary between actually working on improving articles and doing WikiFairy-like tasks such as adding infoboxes to articles about LGBT people (last stab was at actors, think I've got the gals covered but have only made a small dent in the guys and haven't even looked at the others). Certainly let us know if there's something imparticular that interests you; hopefully, we can help point you in the correct direction. Happy editing! ZueJay (talk) 02:37, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

re Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#User:Vonita[edit]

Hi. I have replied there, but if you are wanting that section "closed" then it would be best if you didn't edit it (that way the archiving bot will do its stuff soomer). You can reply here - I will watchlist this page - or on my talkpage. The only drawback is that you are unlikely to get further uninvolved admin help should you feel that my input is insufficient. Please note that the latter does not offend me, since many people prefer the views of more than one person. Cheers. LessHeard vanU (talk) 21:29, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Okay, cool. I don't think you can claim that the complaint was dismissed, simply that it appears to have been otherwise resolved in that no admin has been prepared to follow it up. It would be best, of course, to avoid interacting with Ultra(violet scissor flame) where possible in future, and get on with enjoying editing the encyclopedia. Cheers. LessHeard vanU (talk) 21:37, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
sigh. This is not helpful. If you are keen to let the ANI thread disappear then please don't mention (link to) it. I would again advise that you move on and concentrate on editing the encyclopedia. Cheers. LessHeard vanU (talk) 21:05, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Dear Vonita,

Thank you for you diligence re: Image:Sophie Marceau.jpg (delete | talk | history | logs) - uploaded by Ultraviolet scissor flame (notify | contribs).

This is a fragment of my own photo. It was discussed and deleted[3] I made a mistake last year, when I was a beginner at Wiki, and used a PD tag for this image, because I did not believe that my late father could be cut out of my own photo! Finally, my honest mistake was treated with common sense and respect to my late father, actor Petr Shelokhonov.

I also uploaded this photo on IMDb and signed it. The photo was taken by me with personal permission from Sophie Marceau after filming a scene for Anna Karenina (1997 film) in the park of the Tsar's summer palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. I own the negative of this photo, and you are right that it is due to appear in a book. But how did you know that? we are still in the process of making the book, it is not in print yet. I am impressed by your foresight (or premonition).

I thank you[edit]

That's about it really, but I thank you anyway. :)--andreasegde (talk) 23:40, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry to read that you're having the same problems with Mr Flame. He really is a little pest, and is a new kind of vandal by pretending to be a newbie so he can mess up articles, and then letting his bottom lip tremble when anyone tells him to stop. He's a clever little s#*=.--andreasegde (talk) 13:00, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
