Name ?[edit]

Is {{Shinto2}} really a helpful choice of name for a sidebar template (vertically-aligned navigation (navbox)) ? I see {{Shinto}} is used to populate Shinto-related talk page headers yet as main focus of our work should be the article rather than the talk-page spaces, perhaps a rename is warranted ?

As {{Shinto2}} used by 9 pages, whilst {{Shinto}} used by over 300 pages, clearly use of article sidebar of {{Shinto}} with talk page of say {{Shinto header}} is not going to be convenient.

Therefore per what seems quite common usage of the metatemplate {{Religion}}[1] to use "-ism" form, perhaps this sidebar should be renamed to {{Shintoism}} ? David Ruben Talk 01:20, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

As the project talk page template has been deleted, the template has been moved to {{Shinto}}. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 18:09, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Misogi[edit]

Was bold, changed the link from Ritual_purification to Misogi, as its more relevant then the two lines in the prior page. NeilHynes (Talk) 14:39, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
