Eclogue 4[edit]

I just wrote an article for Virgil's Eclogue 4. Feel free to look over it, make corrections, and ping me if you need any of the texts I cited if you want to verify/check what I wrote. I'd particularly like it if someone can double-check my Latin translations (there's only a few, and they're short). Thanks!--Gen. Quon (Talk) 21:56, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Davidic line[edit]

H. Wayne House Israel: Land and the People 1998 114 "And yet, Judah has also been without a king of the Solomonic line since the Babylonian exile. Because of Jeremiah's curse on Jehoiachin (Coniah) in the early 500s BC (Jer. 22:30), the high priests of Israel, while serving as the ...

An editor has objected to/removed this source because the author is expressing a "POV christological" view (which is presumably the case). Since the idea of "Jeremiah's curse on Jehoiachin (Coniah) in the early 500s BC (Jer. 22:30)" being a curse on the "Solomonic line" is widely disseminated in Catholic and Protestant literature, it's presumably notable, and as we don't have a separate Solomonic line article, Davidic line is the article it would be covered in. So can someone perhaps dig out a more acceptable source which isn't "POV christological" ? Many thanks. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:24, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I have proposed a number of possible source titles, academic, secular Jewish, and Christian. Comments from anyone here on which of these authors would be suitable WP:RS, or to supplement sources, are very welcome. In ictu oculi (talk) 00:09, 16 August 2014 (UTC)


There is a discussion regarding certain sections of the article Afterlife now taking place on the Fringe Theories Noticeboard. Comments from interested editors are welcome. -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:41, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Hinduism and Sikhism needs some TLC[edit]

If there are any subject matter experts who could give the article some needed attention, or anyone who has a machete and can clean out enough of the mess that others would have a decent frame from which to build. Thanks!-- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 04:17, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Cru (Christian organization)[edit]

The article has major issues with sourcing, as I have noted on the talk page. I've started to trim it of unsourced claims, and self-sourcing. It needs people who can build up the article by finding reliable sources. Anyone who can help would be appreciated. I will of course try my best, but I don't really know much about the organization actually.

RFC in progress[edit]

There is a Request for comments in progress at Talk: Artificial intelligence. The question has to do with the content of the lede of the article. Robert McClenon (talk) 03:15, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Brahma Kumaris article needs neutral eyes[edit]

The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University could use some neutral and experienced eyes on it at this point, having recently emerged from an edit war between sockpuppets imposing unclear "accuracy" and a couple of WP:SPA pro-Kumaris accounts reverting back. The sockpuppets have been banned and the two SPAs are now cleaning up the article. A neutral editor with some awareness of Brahma Kumaris who can help make sure the article is accurate and neutral and not omitting or underplaying anything important would be appreciated. --McGeddon (talk) 09:57, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't know anything about them, but I've added the page to my watchlist. There was a similar problem with the Providence (religious movement) page in the past. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 12:41, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Religion in Iceland[edit]

In the Religion in Iceland article there is a pie chart showing the percentage of people formally affiliated with various denominations (or combo of denominations) according to the government records. I've been careful to give the actual denomination name (or English equivalent) used by the government but another editor keeps changing the names (he insists on Evangelical Lutheranism for the slice for the Evangelical Lutheran Church [aka Church of Iceland, the state church] and ignoring that there are other Lutheran denominations in a different slice that would also likely characterize themselves as part of Evangelical Lutheranism). I'm now requesting a third party look from some in the religion project in case I'm blowing things out of proportion or misunderstand what should be done. BTW what should be put as religion in the country infobox for Iceland; I'm unsure on what the policy is? Should it be the state church aka Church of Iceland or should it be the predominate religion, Christianity or something else? --Erp (talk) 02:49, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
