Hi there, Banner - welcome to WikiFur! Thanks for introducing yourself - I'm guessing you'll be interested in working on the articles about The Lining and StarrBucks. :-)

Let me know on my user talk page if you need any help not already provided. Again, welcome! --GreenReaper(talk) 01:03, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)

General page template[edit]

IS there a general page template anywhere? One I can just cut and paste into a page I'm writing, and then fill in the areas so the format is the same as all the others?

It'd make things easier for lazy people like me :-) --Banner

I don't think there is, though you could try this:
[[Image:Something.png|right|200px|Title of image]]
'''Something''' is/are . . .

== External links ==

[[Category:Something]]
Frankly, the best way would probably to find a page close to the one you want to edit and copy the style from there. Different pages with different topics and content require different approaches. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:29, 22 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Also, StarrBucks has two 'r's in it. Could you edit the refering link and title page? I don't know where that gets done. --Banner

mwalimu beat me to the move (click the tab at the top of the page, select the new name). The linking pages to a page can be found by clicking "What links here" at the left of the page. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:37, 22 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Rolled back edit to The Lining[edit]

Note about your last edit to The Lining article, I've rolled back the last edit you made to the lining article as my personal thoughts are that the wording as it stands gives an accurate picture as to the nature of the place without having to list every sexual preference.

As I said in my edit summary, "As mentioned by someone else, a straight/bi/gay bar is just.. a bar! I'll reword the Clientele section for clarifications.)", I felt my edit reflected that however its clearly not so if you felt the need to change it back again.

The line as it stands is:

The Lining while more than often prefered as the meeting play on Tapestries for gay males, it is friendly to all sexual preferences.

Would maybe 'it is open to all sexual preferences' make it more clear? And I think play was supposed to be the word 'place'. And prefered should be 'preferred'. My bad there. x.X

I'd like to discuss. :)

I'm not sure if I'm using this talk thing right but: A Bi/Gay/Straight bar -is a type of bar-. Just like gay bars are gay bars, and bi bars are bi bars. It's not just a 'bar', regular bars are NOT Bi/Gay/Straight, they're Straight Bars. As a bar fan (I love bars more than you can imagine) I know my bars, and a Bi/Gay/Straight bar is a very certain type of bar and yes it does matter. Sorry for the lecture.

Okay, since there seems to be some difference of opinions with this...Perhaps a vote? I personally agree with Nidonocu, as a bi/gay/straight bar pretty much covers all the bases. However, I do see Banner's POV, as a 'bar' is generally straight-only...but on Taps as well? Spaz Kitty 05:11, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

bi/gay/straight bar != bar. Saying they're the same is like saying a McDonalds = Denny's. Look, go out to a bar in your town that clearly says it's a Bi/Gay/Straight bar. Then go to a Straight bar, and then a gay one. You'll notice the difference in decor, attitude, events, and clientele. Trust me on this. - Banner

I suppose there is the issue of context here. On Taps it is common to have all forms of sexual oritentation happening everywhere so unless the bar has a fixed assignment (for example, I believe there is a specific lesbian bar on Taps) then all 'bars' on Taps are pretty much 'gay/bi/straight' bars. This of course does differ to the real world where most bars are straight and distinctions are needed. Should maybe some text be added to point out this fact? I don't also want to loose the fact that of course, while it is g/b/s in theme, it also is mostly frequented by gay males and is by and large the de facto meeting place for them. --Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 05:24, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
