Templates[edit]

  • Please use {{WPReligion}} as the assessment banner, following the information provided on that page.
  • It is probable that we should have at least one navigation template for each of the NRMs we deal with which have more than one extant article dealing with them, as well as navigation templates for the subject of NRMs in general and for any of the various "types" of NRMs, like cargo cults, UFO religions, etc. These templates should all be listed below.
  • It would of course also be useful if we had any sort of award specifically for the subjects the group deals with. Anyone with any talent in such matters is more than encouraged to create one and list it below.
