Wiki Loves Pride![edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • 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.

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!

Need help with making an entry for American Fashion Podcast[edit]

I previously created a page tracking all the episodes of American Fashion Podcast, but it was deleted "because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic." I spent several hours figuring out how to post and inputting all the information, so it was really frustrating to have it deleted. Most of what I compiled did get rebuilt as the Episodes List page on the AFP site.

That was several months ago, and the show is now up past 60 episodes with a ton of interviews with both famous designers and lesser known behind the scenes artists, entrepreneurs, and educators. There is now press coverage from Harper's Bazaar, Huffington Post, Bustle, American Manufacturing, and Put This On.

I'm admittedly not very good at editing Wikipedia, the complex syntax really throws me. I would like to get some help in putting it together again, but right this time. added by Fashiontechguru 9pm EST, 22 August 2015, updated 11:30am on 23 August 2015


Why the h*ll are specific dresses [like J-Lo's famous green abomination, or "the Travolta dress"] being placed on Wikipedia? How is this nonsense worthy of inclusion on this site? WHO FREAKING CARES ABOUT THIS JUNK?!?!? Create a damn Wikifashionista site and put that info there, not here!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:25, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

While I disagreed myself at the time, a very expansive discussion came to the consensus that if individual garments meet our notability requirements, they can have standalone articles. Daniel Case (talk) 01:06, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
