84.221.218.68 (talk) 12:58, 15 September 2016 (UTC)hello thank you for an amazing page on heracles- exceptional as an art history and art professor, i'd like to request the sidebox summary for heracles as reflecting more neutral, academically contemporary language as identifying him as "protector of humankind" instead of the archaic 'man'kind84.221.218.68 (talk) 12:58, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you very much for your suggestion! I've done quite a bit of research on this, and that long bit about Heracles at the top of the infobox appears to be a quote found on hundreds, perhaps thousands of internet sites, some of which would be considered reliable sources by Wikipedia. In any case, the answer that is given is:
Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit semi-protected}} template. I think this is a case where there must be agreement among Wikipedia editors before such a change can be made. "Mankind" appears to be a much older term and describes both human genders in much the same way as the academically contemporary "humankind" does. My own personal opinion based upon several hours of research into this quotation is that it should not be changed; however, if other people besides us two come together with a consensus for change, I would be more than happy to abide by that.  Paine  u/c 08:09, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
