Recognition of same-sex marriage in Australia[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

The Australian states of Tasmania, Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, as well as the Australian Capital Territory, recognise same-sex marriages performed abroad. Therefore, they must be coloured in cyan blue. Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 07:47, 17 November 2016 (UTC) Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 07:47, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello Xylo kai Gyali. You already said this at Template talk:World laws pertaining to homosexual relationships and expression. (I moved your comment to the bottom of the page, where new comments are supposed to go.) If I were you, I'd wait and see if anyone replies to it there. If you don't get any replies within a couple of days, you might post a query at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject LGBT studies‎.
I notice you've been making a lot of changes to related pages, and the reason for the changes isn't always clear. Please use an edit summary for each edit so that other user can know your rationale.
If you feel I haven't responded adequately to your Help request, reset the template above to {{Help me}} and someone else will be along. Rivertorch's Evil Twin (talk) 13:31, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello Rivertorch's Evil Twin. Thanks for the response. I am a new user and still have many queries about how to edit properly / ask questions / add citations and sources. Indeed, I have made a lot of changes on related pages , mainly minor things like to add dates or fix typos and make the content a bit more accurate. But as I said, minor changes. Next time I edit anything, I promise I will use the Edit Summary, so that the reason of my edit will be specified. Thanks for taking the time to help me. Really appreciate it.

December 2016[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to LGBT rights in Argentina, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. If you only meant to make a test edit, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you.

August 2017[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to LGBT rights in Greece, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. If you only meant to make a test edit, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. --SILENTRESIDENT 11:08, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates, or other materials from Wikipedia without adequate explanation, you may be blocked from editing. Thank you. --SILENTRESIDENT 09:06, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

October 2017[edit]

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 15:22, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for mentioning. You really helped me. I didn't know all these. Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 18:44, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Cool. Mostly, you need to use the article talk page to discuss the material you wish to change once other editors have disagreed. The thing with edit wars is they (a) make the articles less trustable; and (b) make Wikipedia a less pleasant place to edit. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 18:59, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Ok I understand what you mean. It seems like you're more experienced than me, so can you edit Chad on the map? And maybe Angola but I am not sure if the new penal code has been signed yet. But in Chad the law to criminalise homosexuality came into force on 1 August. Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 19:30, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

So talk about it on the talk page. And it might really help if you prefaced it with "Sorry about the edit warring; I didn't understand how problematic it was." --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 20:55, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

I did but noone had replied... Just trying to make the map as accurate as possible. Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 20:57, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Warring? I don't know what that means (I'm not a native english speaker) Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 20:59, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Have you read Wikipedia:Edit warring? --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 15:03, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Ooh yeah I just did! Completely understood! As you suggested, I left messages on the talk page regarding Chad but no-one replied. Xylo kai Gyali (talk) 15:27, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Civil Unions for LGBTI people[edit]

Hello, your recent edits in LGBT rights in Greece has brought to my attention the case of Civil Unions for people of various categories. While Civil Unions before 2015 permitted opposite sex, in 2015 they were expanded to same-sex. But I am not sure whether Civil Unions before 2015 were permitted for Transgender people. Is the inclusion of the Transgender the reason of your edits? -- SILENTRESIDENT 13:56, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

I don't understand exactly what you mean, but I think before 2015, civil unions were legal for transgender people, as long as they had changed their gender surgically.
