Modern Dharmic Writers navigation template[edit]

Please note that it is a standard policy on Wikipedia that such navigation templates should only be placed on the articles linked in the template. You have placed this template on multiple articles not linked in the template. Please correct this. See WP:NAVBOX: "every article that transcludes a given navbox should normally also be included as a link in the navbox so that the navigation is bidirectional." Personally, I believe that the navbox should be eliminated as the subjects are too loosely connected and a category should be used instead. If you add a link to every article you have added the template to, it will be too large a template. Yworo (talk) 18:16, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. What you cite is not a hard-and-fast rule or policy, take for instance a look at the template Buddhism, it is linked in many, many articles that are not on the template, like Mantra, Guru, Dhammapadda, Enlightment and Sutra, most of which, but not all, are in the category, and there are many more examples. IMHO, I don't believe that the scope is too large. But I agree that I should not have put it in article on which you removed it for not being a writer, although I took care not to put it inside non-writers. Anyways I have stopped. --Trphierth (talk) 10:55, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
It's promoting certain authors on the pages of other authors, and it's not appropriate. I'll be removing it from all the articles not linked in the template. You should really be doing that, not me. Don't make useless work for other editors. Yworo (talk) 16:34, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
And thanks for pointing out that the Buddhism template is also being misused. WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS is never a good argument. Yworo (talk) 16:35, 2 November 2012 (UTC)


I see that you contested a PROD on Rajinder Singh (Sant Mat). The article is now at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rajinder Singh (Sant Mat). You may like to contribute to the discussion. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:14, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

"Dharmic religion"[edit]

We shouldn't have a category something that we don't have an article for. From what I can see, Dharmic religion is a synonym for Indian religions, and is so defined in that article. Our categories need to be source based. What sources is this category based on? What scholars define it as a category? How is it different from the category "Indian religions", which the article defines as the very same four religions which were included as subcategories of "Dharmic religions". Why are there no source supported _articles_ in this category, that is, all the articles which were in the category actually belonged in one of the subcategories? Why should we have a category called Category:Dharmic writers when we have no corresponding category Category:Dharmic religions? Yworo (talk) 06:22, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

OK, I can answer that last question because I clicked through. The category "Dharmic religions" was deleted in a deletion discussion as "a neologism invented on-wiki; content has been completely moved to Indian religions for some time; the category should follow suit." "Dharmic writers" appears to have been overlooked when that category was deleted. It's made up. Yworo (talk) 06:40, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Hindu writers[edit]

Hi Trphierth. I've added your additions to the templates also to List of modern Eastern religions writers. Greetings, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 19:25, 27 May 2013 (UTC) Ok, thanks. --Trphierth (talk) 21:20, 2 June 2013 (UTC)


Hi Trphierth. I've created a portal on "Indian religions", which contains a lot of links. I hope it suits your wish for quick navigation. Greetings, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 05:57, 2 June 2013 (UTC) Ok, it looks nice. --Trphierth (talk) 21:20, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
