Categorizing[edit]

OK, as I proofread the "Ancient Celtic and Gaulish" section, there are some entries I'm not sure what to do with. Does an obscure deity described as "British", with a cult center in England, really belong there? (Example: Arnemetia) We don't have a general Brythonic section... but I don't know that these sorts really belong in the Welsh section, either. Do we do Gaelic and Brythonic, with sub-sections? Argh! - Kathryn NicDhàna 00:40, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

If it does not fit, it does not fit. Let's remove any ambiguous entries. ≈ jossi ≈ (talk) 01:04, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair enough. It's a huge-ass template as it is ;-) - Kathryn NicDhàna 01:30, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Indeed... ≈ jossi ≈ (talk) 01:50, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Breaking it down[edit]

I knew that gigantic over-determined table would one day morph into a template. But there's just way too much going on here. We're working with three or four cultural groups (each in different regions and eras). Compare Roman mythology, which uses – for a single cultural group –

A similar breakdown allows you to have big themes of general interest at the top, specific themes at the bottom. I'd like to propose a similar solution here. I'm imagining (at a minimum) templates along these lines: {{Celtic mythology (Goidelic)}}, {{Celtic mythology (Brythonic)}}, {{Celtic paganism (prehistoric and Roman)}}, {{Celtic folklore (Scottish)}}... I'd prefer to break the Irish (i.e. Goidelic) material down further into cycles. What do you think? Q·L·1968 20:37, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Sure... Go ahead. We will need then to check all articles that use the template and replace it with the more approriate one. ≈ jossi ≈ (talk) 23:33, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Anyone want to suggest a name for the Mythological Cycle template (mostly Tuatha Dé Danann)? They're all "Celtic mythology (something)" so far, so my current idea is "Celtic mythology (TDD)". Any better ideas? Q·L·1968 22:47, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Hearing no suggestions from others, I've finally convinced myself to use the tautological {{Celtic mythology (Mythological)}} for the sake of symmetry. Q·L·1968 21:17, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

=I suck at this screw my life.

Lugaid[edit]

Hi, could someone tell me what the intention behind adding Lugaid to the "Irish rulers and warriors" sub-template? Is it supposed to refer to a specific Lugaid, or all the kings with that name? Thanks, --JaGatalk 06:56, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

OK, link to all it is. --JaGatalk 16:44, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Help?[edit]

I don't understand the thing about updating the documentation. I fixed a couple redirects on the template, but I really don't get whether or not, or how, to update the documentation. - CorbieV 21:09, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
