Technical question[edit]

Does anyone know the cause of the "Template loop detected: Template:TNT:WM:LGBT" text on the main page? -Another Believer (talk) 02:39, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

I do not know, but the problem is in the header template at Wikimedia LGBT/Header. I expect that it is with these lines -
|style="font-size:90%;text-align: {{#switch:{{dir|{{{uselang|{{CURRENTCONTENTLANGUAGE}}}}}}}|rtl=right|ltr|#default=left}}"|
{{ {{TNTN|shortcut}}|[[WM:LGBT]]|dir={{dir|{{{uselang|{{CURRENTCONTENTLANGUAGE}}}}}}} }}
<div style="padding:0 .5em;color:#216498;font-size:170%;"><translate><!--T:5-->
I do not understand setup for translation, which is what this is. Blue Rasberry (talk) 14:11, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
I wish the markup were not so complicated here. Updating these Meta pages is too intimidating, especially with the translations... @Varnent: Might you be able to identify the culprit? -Another Believer (talk) 14:43, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Prizes for LGBT+ themed Featured Pictures[edit]

Draft at: Grants:Project/Rapid/LGBT/Wiki_Loves_Pride_Featured_Picture_drive_2016

The grant request is now drafted above and the prizes will be on a first-past-the-post open through until the start of 2017. We need a couple of WM-LGBT+ volunteers with some experience with Featured Pictures (on Commons or Wikipedia) to help with the process and flesh out details. Please add your name to the meta page, or comment on the associated talk page. If you haven't been active with WM-LGBT+ in the past, this would be a good time to join in with the user group.

I doubt it will be much volunteer time, as we only have to agree that a nominated photograph has a clear LGBT+ related theme, not make any assessment about whether it should be a Featured Picture.

The request is draft, so any feedback or improvements to the text are welcome. -- (talk) 13:20, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

~100 LGBT articles campaign[edit]

There has been a long-discussed proposal in Wiki LGBT+ to have a set of about 100 LGBT articles presented as suggested articles to be included in all languages of Wikipedia.

I drafted the concept of making ~100 article lists at Wiki99. I moved the current draft of the LGBT list of this to Wiki99 LGBT+. If anyone has comments on either the campaign idea or the specific LGBT list, then please comment at either of those spaces.

I am glad that Wikimedia LGBT has spent so much time discussing this as a campaign idea. I think it really is a clever concept that originated in this project from many different contributors internationally. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:38, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
