Should Anumarana be merged with Sati (practice)?
Hi, Jethwarp! Thanks for proving to me through your excellent work that Anumarana should definitely have its own extended discussion, relative to Sati (practice). I was wondering how you stand versus to keep Anumarana as independent article, vs. being merged with Sati (practice). The thematics are extremely closely related conceptually, and my intitial view is that they therefore ought to be emerged. However, another closely related practice, Jauhar does have its own page (although that page is a wholly unsourced mess at the moment). Thus, it can be argued for that for the sake of not making Sati (practice) too big, it is perfectly in order to have a separate Anumarana article. Personally, I am unsure about the whole issue, and would value your opinion relative to merging.Arildnordby (talk) 18:36, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Asaram Bapu has not been convicted as yet. The case is running in the court. Please remove the category Hindu Gurus with criminal convictions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cologo (talk • contribs) 07:31, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
BLP and convictions
Greetings Jethwarp, I suppose I am a member of the Genealogy WikiProject, though I admit that it has been quite a while since I've contributed much to Wikipedia. I am mostly a passive observer these days, though I will likely be adding a lot of geographic information over the next few months due to a project I am working on regarding local railroads.
Anyway, I agree mostly with your stance on this issue. Generally speaking, a genealogical family is comprised of male-line descendants of the founder, though sometimes a distaff branch is included for various reasons, usually involving an inheritance such as the case with Habsburg-Lorraine. I do not know enough about the context of your articles to help much in the actual dispute over who is or is not considered family. In some instances, I would considered spouses members if there is not some other better place for them. For example, (I am a European historian, BTW) I would probably add Stephen of England to a list of members of the House of Normandy even though it is through his mother, but I would not include his brother or father because they played no part in English politics.
Regarding your specific issues, I'd first ask yourself (and maybe the other person) why those specific individuals are being added despite not being literal descendants of the founder. Secondly, if you still find issue with it and are unable to resolve it with the author, I'd suggest bringing the issue up with administrators under the Wikipedia:OWN umbrella, since he clearly has stated his intent to defend his work and not work collaboratively. Regardless, stop the reversion war, think about motives, then try discussing the issue with the user first. If neither works, then elevate the dispute to the next level.
Hey Jethwarp, I would say that being a spouse legitimately incorporates one into the Tagore family, especially if the point made by Whaleyland stands, that being that there is not some other better place for them. In other words, being married into the Tagore family is what gives them their notability. From a more genealogical standpoint, you are right in saying they are not genealogical descendants. However, the template headers themselves are not referring to genealogical descendants, but simply to members of each subsequent generation. If the template were to serve exclusively as a genealogical tool, it could be argued that blood were all that mattered here. As it does not, the spouses, in my opinion, deserve to be included alongside the rest as part of a "generation" of the Tagore family. OlliffeΦObscurity 12:51, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
