I dunno about Heracles and Perseus. Maybe. Bacchiad 15:40, 17 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Are these necessary considering how we have categories now? They seem like unnecessary clutter. Postdlf 23:10, 17 Jul 2004 (UTC)

I think you're mostly right. It was practicable and (I think) helpful with Roman myth. It's clearly breaking down with Greek myth, where things are much more open-ended and complex. Where something like nymphs or the figures associated with a god are loosely defined and wide-ranging and potentially hierarchical, categories are much better.

So I'm mostly dissatisfied with the experiment. I decided not to press forward any more when I got to heroes and it became clear that even a Theseus/Minotaur box would be impossible to do well, let alone Trojan War.

The ones that I think might be worth keeping, in stripped-down form, are Template:Greek myth (Titan) and Template:Greek myth (Olympian) - maybe or maybe not (sea) and (Hades). The first two sets, at least, are small, heterogeneous and closely-interrelated enough where it could still work.

I'll continue to tinker. One way or another, the clutter will be alleviated. Bacchiad 00:10, 18 Jul 2004 (UTC)
