Ancient source[edit]

From what ancient authors do we primarily know Heracles' adventures? In other words: is there a main work that concerns the Twelve Labours? I have a hard time finding it in this article. 83.83.1.229 (talk) 20:44, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 8 February 2014[edit]

Heracles homosexuality/bisexuality deleted. How can this be reversed?

I was browsing and noticed an unusual layout in this article. I noticed a subheading under Heracles Lovers for Women, and scrolled down for the Men subheading. It seems it was recently (1/19/2014) deleted by an editor MPA. When I clicked on MPA it came up empty.

I'm not familiar with Wiki etiquette but I assume this is not acceptable.

Example:

Prior Extraordinary strength, courage, ingenuity, and sexual prowess with both males and females were among his characteristic attributes.

Edited ver. Extraordinary strength, courage, ingenuity, and sexual prowess were among his characteristic attributes.


Didn't think this was a controversy. Thanks for your attention. 65.9.21.37 (talk) 02:10, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Removal reversed - Removing editor seems confused - on Wikipedia lack of primary sources is a good thing - and how do you get primary sources about a mythical being in any case? Arjayay (talk) 17:30, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Hercle[edit]

The first occurrence of Hercle in this article needs to be wikilinked viz Hercle. 101.163.17.98 (talk) 10:40, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Thanks. Paul August 19:51, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
