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!

A serious annoyance[edit]

When I looked up “Afghanistan” on Google Maps, I found, in southern Afghanistan, a place labeled “Rudbar”. But all the articles listed under Rudbar (disambiguation) – including those listed under Rudbar Rural District (disambiguation) – are in Iran. There must be a mistake; either Wikipedia lacks an article on a place called Rudbar that’s in Afghanistan; or Google Maps got a place name wrong. Please fix this.--Solomonfromfinland (talk) 22:54, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Large numbers of Iranian articles could benefit from geocoding[edit]

The category Category:Iran articles missing geocoordinate data now contains over 13,000 articles that appear to be eligible for geotagging, but have not been geotagged. I'd greatly appreciate any help that members of this project could give to adding these coordinates. For help in how the geotagging system works, please see Wikipedia:Wikiproject Geographical coordinates. Thanks, -- The Anome (talk) 14:45, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
