Request for input in discussion forum[edit]

Given the closely linked subjects of the various religion, mythology, and philosophy groups, it seems to me that we might benefit from having some sort of regular topical discussion forum to discuss the relevant content. I have put together the beginnings of an outline for such discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/2011 meeting, and would very much appreciate the input of any interested editors. I am thinking that it might run over two months, the first of which would be to bring forward and discuss the current state of the content, and the second for perhaps some more focused discussion on what, if any, specific efforts might be taken in the near future. Any and all input is more than welcome. John Carter (talk)

WP Catholicism in the Signpost[edit]

The WikiProject Report would like to focus on WikiProject Catholicism for a Signpost article. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview. Just add your response below each question and feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Multiple editors will have an opportunity to respond to the interview questions, so be sure to sign your answers. If you know anyone else who would like to participate in the interview, please share this with them. Have a great day. –Mabeenot (talk) 04:17, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Last call for responses to the interview questions. The interview will be published later this week. –Mabeenot (talk) 03:22, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, come on please - so far its only me! Johnbod (talk) 11:11, 17 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi all, this is a courtesy notice that I added several maintenance templates to this article whilst on recent changes patrol. I've posted my justifications on the talk page (Talk:Neo-Catholicism#Maintenence_Templates_Addition) but I'm not qualified to truly judge some of details in the article so if anyone feels like taking a look, please do. Many thanks, CaptRik (talk) 11:07, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Cough cough - if any editors could have a look at this, it would be great! I've done some minimal work but its an area I know very little about - created by a new and knowledgeable editor who would be great to retain, if someone could come and help get rid of these big ugly tags that would be great! :) Acather96 (click here to contact me) 19:15, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I doubt the term is notable enough to warrant its own article. It is basically used by traditionalist schismatic authors to describe conservative Catholics who are in line with the Holy See, in the context of American catholicism. I don't see how it can be notable enough. --Saint-Louis (talk) 13:18, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
I agree. "Neo-Catholicism" seems to be a word used by American (only) traditionalists as a label to apply to conservative Catholic writers not opposed to the Holy See, and that, if echoed by others, is accompanied by an implied "as certain traditionalists would say". However, I don't have the time or energy to see whether this "seems to be" can be backed up by reliable sources, and so I cannot touch it. Esoglou (talk) 16:00, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/St Xavier's College, Jaipur[edit]

Dear editors: The above old Afc submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable school, and should the page be kept and improved instead? —Anne Delong (talk) 15:09, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Silesian School of Iconography[edit]

Dear editors: Here's another old Afc submission which will soon be deleted as a stale draft unless someone takes an interest in improving its referencing. —Anne Delong (talk) 16:02, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Caeremoniale Romanum...[edit] be regarded as an article suggestion appearing quite important to me, yet something for the "real experts" so that I would like to bring it up for discussion here. Thanks a lot in advance for any feedback. Greetings,--Der Spion (talk) 00:53, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Catholicism At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

Messy Christian saints category[edit]

Hello, I'd like to draw your attention to: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Religion#Messy_Christian_saints_category. Could you have a look there and check if you're willing to contribute to the discussion? Thanks in advance, Marcocapelle (talk) 07:26, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

One-editor campaign[edit]

User:Robert Laymont is at this moment engaged in a one-man campaign of changing the image used for the tiara and keys symbol of the papacy and the Holy See. Is that OK? Esoglou (talk) 18:12, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Have you considered posting to his talk page? Elizium23 (talk) 01:08, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
I considered, perhaps wrongly, that it was enough to ping him from here, and indeed the initiated campaign did stop. However, I will now post also on his talk page. Esoglou (talk) 06:10, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, Esoglou and Elizium23, I didn't see this. You can revert my changes if you think the previous image was better (I know is a featured picture in Commons), but this one is more similar to the usual depiction of the keys, which is this [1][2][3] --Robert Laymont (talk) 06:35, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

San Pedro Sula cathedral and Roman Catholic churches in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala[edit]

Greatly appreciated if some of you want to expand San Pedro Sula cathedral, which I've just created as a stub. Most children coming to the Texas right now are from Honduras, and many are from this Honduras town, where gang violence is rife. It may be useful to create and expand more pages of Catholic cathedrals and churches in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Most people in Honduras are Roman Catholic. It may also be good to create both Category:Roman Catholic churches in Honduras and Category:Mission Revival architecture in Honduras. Please reply on my talkpage if interested. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 05:38, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
