Olympia[edit]

The link in this template goes to a disambiguation page. Should it in fact link to Olympia, Greece? Colonies Chris (talk) 09:54, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Groups[edit]

Since the groups are so minor they must be spoken of in the plural, shouldn't the template be re-ordered to list gods and heroes before groups?

Olympians[edit]

I've moved Hades and Hestia back to the Olympians category, and I would argue that they belong there. There are traditionally twelve Olympians, but there are fourteen gods who tend to feature on that list, in varying combinations (some scholars actually refer to them as the Fourteen Olympians).

We could quibble and qualify, but ultimately it's just going to confuse things. And if we specify that Hestia is only an Olympian "in some mythologies", then surely we have to do the same for Dionysus and Hades.

My suggestion would be that we keep these fourteen, all of whom are commonly identified as Olympians, on the list, and if any qualifications are necessary they can go in the subject's wiki page. -Shoemoney2night (talk) 00:09, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
