Hai folks! I'm Firefly Writings and I will be doing this wiki's second newsletter! We have several announcements to make this week, as well as the results from our last poll so please read! Also, if you know any advertising methods for this wiki please share!
About Our Founder, Luna518.
As some of you know, our dear founder Luna will be having an activity drop due to mental health problems and personal things in her life. However, she is still our admin, and will pop up when needed. More information can be found in this blog post.
Our Wiki Forums.
Just a quick reminder that our Wiki Forums can be found in the navigation bar, created by Luna and inspired by the forums from Authors Academy. I myself have started three threads on our forums, hope you enjoy them!
Social Idea: Love And Gender Pride.
Coming Out Advice.
Since the last newsletter, 86% percent have voted on deleting the Ceterosexual page. 98% percent have voted on the words 'queer' and 'genderqueer' legal to use on this wiki. As of now, the Ceterosexual page has been deleted and users are free to use the words 'queer' and 'genderqueer', thanks for voting!
Most pages have a History section now, and it is advised that dedicated users update them. There are also pages themselves that are solely dedicated to LGBT history, which can be found here.
Wiki Partnership Ideas.
Another wiki, which is pretty much like ours but in German, had asked that we partnered with them. Because of my famous quote here, 'democracy is great' I have decided to start a poll.
<poll> Do you want us to partner with that wiki? Yes. No. </poll>
I have also come across another wiki, the LGBTA wiki. I expect there will be a poll for that in the next newsletter.
This is a new section I am adding to the newsletter. If anyone is adding a new label to themselves, or coming out overall, you can request an admin or poweruser to put you on the Coming Out section, along with a detailed description. You can also write 'figuring out' stories on how you found out about your sexuality, gender or romantic orientation. Simply write what you have to say and copy it in a fancy text! Make it readable though. https://coolsymbol.com/cool-fancy-text-generator.html

A Little Project I Have Started.
Note: This is not by force, you can volunteer to sign up for the project. This is supposed to help our wiki get more information.
I believe that's it for the week. Also everyone, not just powerusers, are encouraged to give commentry on advertisement ideas to get more people to contribute to our amazing wiki. Next newsletter we have our dear friend, Hisone The OTF . Keep calm and be gay! (Or straight, bi etc..)
