Wicca Rock[edit]

Wicca Rock - Is it an Incipient Genre[edit]

Hello All. I am soliciting opinions on two articles, each of which I have made contributions on, one of which I have made the major contribution to: Themis music and Wicca rock the latter which I recently re-wrote.

I am completely new to Wikipedia (a few months) and I wanted to introduce the topic of an underground phenomina moving more to the surface.

Likely everyone here knows that there are many Wiccans out there who belong to no coven but who are in essence lone eclectic Wiccans. Given the world focus on ecology/giving back to nature; the preservation of earth and a quest for more wholesome values, Wicca is centered as the only nature-based religion.

Early this year I found it very novel to have encountered a group of music people gathered at "Holy Joes" a club in Toronto at a quasi black-garbed wicca event and got invited to another in middle Ontario. I went and it was pretty amazing. We did a "hand drumming in the woods" session and I was part of the circle. I learned of a band called Themis from one of the teachers (who is in the band) and now many months later after seeing much more and after rounding up the scant few public acknowledgments of this emerging music genre, I am writing about it.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Nymphetamine labyrinth (talkcontribs) 19:34, 20 July 2008

Maybe not a genre[edit]

I wonder that maybe this is not a new music genre but maybe just another form of music influenced by Wicca.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Nymphetamine labyrinth (talkcontribs) 19:34, 20 July 2008

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

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)
