Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

October 2015Edit

  Hello, I'm Wikiisawesome. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —the one you made with this edit to Ricky Martin— because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. /wia /talk 15:18, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

There's a section about Ricky Martin's sexuality here in the article; so I think per WP:MOSLEAD that his sexuality doesn't need to be in the lede. /wia /talk 15:21, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Your recent editsEdit

  Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (  or  ) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Speedy deletion nomination of Wiki Loves Pride MinnesotaEdit

 

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.

A tag has been placed on Wiki Loves Pride Minnesota requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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. Crystallizedcarbon (talk) 19:08, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Rachel, I went ahead and requested the deletion of Talk:Wiki Loves Pride Minnesota. But don't worry, this won't affect the meetup page. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:45, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Loves PrideEdit

Hi, Rachel. Thanks for starting the Wiki Loves Pride 2016 page. I saw your request on the Participants' talk page re: how to create a meetup page for your local event. Would Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Pride 2016/Minnesota work? I went ahead and added a red link to the Wiki Loves Pride 2016 page. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:29, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

  • That works User:Another Believer --thanks!
    • Glad to hear! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:30, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
    • By the way, if you can think of any LGBT-related articles specific to Minnesota that should be created or expanded, feel free to create a "Tasks" section on the MN meetup page! I've been working on notable LGBT drinking establishments and gay bars, but perhaps there are some LGBT organizations, legislation, etc to work on. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:43, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
    • User:Another Believer Oh that is cool! I am adding some LGBT-related topics to Tasks that need help...I am working with a librarian at Quatrefoil to develop a list as well...if you have Minnesota-related LGBT topics that we can add to my Meetup page that would be great!

Wiki Loves Pride 2016Edit

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) 20:40, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Event listingEdit

Hello, thanks for creating this event listing! I hope this event goes well. Just a recommendation - when you create an event like this, it's best to add it to the calendar template. This allows people to find and track it, and also will likely increase the likelihood of remote support from experienced contributors who can correct mistakes on pages created and give feedback to new contributors. Hope this is helpful to you, let me know if any thoughts or questions. Blythwood (talk) 13:50, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi Blythwood, how are you doing? Could you tell me how to create a calendar template for April, May, June, and July 2017? I have a Wikipedia event in April and one in July. Thanks!

RachelWex 14:20, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi - I'm afraid it's a bit clunky for starting a new month, but when you've got the event pages created and specific firm dates, I'd go here for April and here for July and copy the code out of here. Or put a message on my talk page if you're still stuck. Blythwood (talk) 21:33, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

March 2017Edit

  Hello, I'm 220 of Borg. I wanted to let you know that I removed one or more external links you added to the main body of Fierce Pussy. Generally, any relevant external links should be listed in an "External links" section at the end of the article and meet the external links guidelines. Links within the body of an article should be internal Wikilinks. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. 220 of Borg 23:40, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

  Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing →   Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. Thanks! 220 of Borg 23:40, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you, Rachel, for your support of women on Wikipedia!

CategoriesEdit

Hello, please ensure that when you add an article to a category, that category is supported in the article text with statements with citations to reliable sources. For example, you added Sammy Haggar to Category:Jewish heavy metal musicians. There is no sourced statement in the article indicating he is Jewish, so this in an incorrect use of categories. Please let me know if you have any questions. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 17:25, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:A Wider BridgeEdit

 

Hello, RachelWex. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "A Wider Bridge".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. HasteurBot (talk) 22:01, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Emma Jane GayEdit

Hi RachelWex! Thanks for starting the article on Emma Jane Gay. It's GREAT. I just added an infobox, as I found a photo of her on the Commons. Was curious if you had given thought to nominating the article for a Did you know... I think it's in great shape, and meets the length & newness requirements. Plus we can try to get it to use the photo (though if we find a photo she took, that would be fab). If you'd like, I can help and/or nominate the article myself. = paul2520 (talk) 22:19, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Emma Jane Gay has been nominated for Did You KnowEdit

 Hello, RachelWex. Emma Jane Gay, an article you either created or to which you significantly contributed,has been nominated to appear on Wikipedia's Main Page as part of Did you know . You can see the hook and the discussion here. You are welcome to participate! Thank you. APersonBot (talk!) 12:01, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Emma Jane GayEdit

 On 8 March 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Emma Jane Gay, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Emma Jane Gay, known for her photographs of the Nez Perce people in the late 19th century, is identified as the first American lesbian photographer? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Emma Jane Gay. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Emma Jane Gay), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

No edit warsEdit

I completely disagree with you on the Gin Blossoms article. Every band has fill in people from time to time. This guy played in a grand total of three shows. Three! That's the definition of trivial in my book.Bob Caldwell CSL (talk) 15:24, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Further clarification: An encyclopedia is never exhaustive. You are trying to be exhaustive. The musician you named is not well-known enough to even have a wikipedia entry. Again, I think it's a waste of space on trivia.Bob Caldwell CSL (talk) 16:34, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Wikipedia articles, unlike encyclopedia articles, grow as their history grows. There is no harm in adding those people who performed for a band even if it was for a short time. We are going to keep it. Sorry that we will agree to disagree; I think the Gin Blossoms would be OK with the additions. Bob Caldwell CSL.

Hi, it was nice to meet you. I looked through your edits and think you might be interested in contributing to Portal:Minnesota. If nothing else to suggest biographies. Hope to see you again.

Wikiloveslove on Wikipedia with a gender gap focusEdit

Hi RachelWex, I wanted to let you know that this year we are adding a wikipedian and gender gap contest to the Wiki Loves Love contest on Commons. I hope our project will participate, the idea is to add content related to ceremonies, festival and testimonies of love on Wikipedia. We have set up a list of articles to work on which also tackle themes of gay weddings (also the laws relating to it), and alternatives like free union, polyamor, bride buring, children marriages, bride abduction. You can have a look here (we have placed the project on Meta to allow multilanguage participation). You can participate as a project or as individual contributors. The main project page is here : Wiki Loves Love on wikipedia 2019. I hope that you will participate! Nattes à chat (talk) 17:48, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

(talk) this is awesome! I will share it on Wiki LGBT. How long will the contest run? I will be helping with an Art + Feminism edit-a-thon on March 9, and some folx there may want to work on these articles as well. RachelWex (talk) 19:30, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Nomination of List of African American activists for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of African American activists is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of African American activists until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Jayjg (talk) 15:58, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

proposed deletion template on Folx (term)Edit

Hi Rachel, I saw someone added a proposed deletion template to Folx (term). I'm tempted to remove it, since their justification is "I don't believe this article really belongs here" and not citing policy. Thoughts? I also raise into the discussion this edit and the one prior. I feel like this discussion has been brought up before; the only resolution had been that "move to Wiktionary" template (it's on Wiktionary, albeit the article here provides much more context & references).

Courtesy pinging Florian Blaschke, who made the edits I mention. = paul2520 (talk) 15:53, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi paul2520 (talk),

Thank you for catching this. Yes, please remove their proposed deletion template from my article. If they can't give a good reason why, then out it goes--deletion is not based on personal opinion. RachelWex (talk) 23:43, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Re: Wikipedia@20Edit

I was pleasantly surprised to see myself mentioned here! Thanks for your submission and for helping to document LGBT+ work within the Wikimedia movement. One very minor thing, my user name is "Another Believer" (not "AnotherBeliever"). Only pointing out because I believe the writings are currently being reviewed, so that's one minor change to consider. Otherwise, I'll take another look at your submission and some of the others, and I look forward to your continued work in this area. ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:38, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Storme WebberEdit

Hi RachelWex! Thanks for starting the article on Storme Webber. I nominated it for DYK. See here for the nomination. I wasn't sure if there's a better hook to use. Feel free to add one. I'll watch the page for suggestions from reviewers, but I would welcome you to do the same, if you have time. = paul2520 (talk) 05:41, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Storme WebberEdit

 On 26 December 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Storme Webber, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that two-spirit artist Storme Webber has used various media to retell her family's experience at The Casino, one of the oldest gay bars on the West Coast? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Storme Webber. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Storme Webber), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
