{{helpme}} How do you change the title of a wikipedia page, and how do you add a section for sources on a new wikipedia page? Gray (talk) 03:31, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Hey there! Okay, so to change the title of a page you need to use the 'Move' function - this can be found at the top of the page, near to the 'Edit' tabs. You might not be able to use this just yet as your account needs to be something called 'autoconfirmed' - that is, you've been around for a short time just so we know that you're not here to vandalise things. If you can't yet use this function, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to help out. Once you've moved a page, you also need to change its title in the first sentence, although that is much easier to do.
In terms of adding a section for sources, this is pretty simple too! To create a new "level 2 header", or section, just type two 'equals' characters (=), then the title of the section, then a further two equals, like this: ==Section==. You can then add your sources manually, or include the <references /> 'parser function' which will automatically display any 'inline' references used elsewhere in the article. Pretty cool!
Hopefully this answers your questions, but let me know if you're still having trouble. Good luck! :) Goblin 02:33, 20 September 2014 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!
Also - when you write a message on a talk page make sure you 'sign' your messages - this is so that we know who made what comments, and when! You can do this using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ Goblin 02:34, 20 September 2014 (UTC) I ♥ Pmlineditor!

Categories on Gray-asexuality[change source]

Why did you add Category:LGBT back to this article? How is the topic related to LGBT? --Auntof6 (talk) 23:14, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Generally, LGBT is the shorter version of LGBTQIA, a more inclusive term which would extend to anybody queer or asexual. Gray-Asexuality falls under the queer and asexual umbrellas. I assumed the category extended to LGBTQIA, as it would be easier than y'know having seperate categories for LGBT and LGBT+ but w/e. I hope this makes sense? Regardless, gray-asexuality is a part of the LGBT+ community and I thought it should be in the category. Shrug. Gray (talk) 23:39, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
I see. I don't think we include that in our LGBT categories. If you want it included, though, you could bring it up for discussion. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:44, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I apologize for the misunderstanding. I apologize for asking, but how do I bring it up for discussion? I'm a relatively new person on the site, but I would like to, uh, bring the subject up for discussion. Gray (talk) 23:51, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
A good place would be on the talk page for the category. (By the way, the category page explains how we currently define LGBT.) On Category talk:LGBT, explain the change you would like. Then post at WP:Simple talk asking people to give their input. Let me know if this isn't clear enough. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:35, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
