Tabular display for mythological data[edit]

Is the tabular display of mythological data (names, signs, colors etc) relevant to the article? I am removing it (the table as well as the data) for now. Rahul Jain (talk) 17:20, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

(copied from User talk:The Rahul Jain#article about jain Tirthankara) hi rahul happy to see you contribution to jainism article in wikipedia. I want to fetch your attention toward article Tirthankara. You have removed the table which used to give a lot of information about tirthankara. I want to know the reason though i am new to wikipedia editing but if you can't find the source of information i can help you with it. few such sources are [1] [2]
I understand these things are "technical and require huge amount of clarification" as you said but we can't delete that information from wiki page. Other way is to edit each thirthankar page and give information with explanation or form a separate wiki page giving height of each theerthankar and explain the decrease of height with change in time (kaal-parivartna)

Hello, Thanks for the sources. However, I do not think they count as reliable source. Please be sure to go through Wikipedia:Verifiability#Reliable_sources. If the reliability of those sources are established, we can insert those data. Cheers. Rahul Jain (talk) 15:07, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Encyclopedia Brittannica is a perfectly fine source. I'm going to revert your removal of the table; the table provides much more info. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 16:09, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, ok, but the other two sources seems unreliable and Encyclopedia Britannica does not mention all of the information that is there in the table. Rahul Jain (talk) 16:21, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
You're right on that, if there are no reliable sources which give that information, then it's fair too remove that info. yet, give Gauravjns also the opportunity to provide sources. Google helps, for example [3], [4] and p50. Greetings, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 16:27, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Okies! Rahul Jain (talk) 16:50, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
I also wonder if those sources are really problematic; it's not controversial info is it?), and it's additional to the Brittannica-source. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:17, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
If by problematic you mean unreliable, then those sources might fall into self-published source which are usually not reliable. If there does not exists reliable source to back them, I do not think it belongs on wikipedia. I really doubt that any reliable source would cover such minor details.

tīrthaṅkara vs Tirthankara[edit]

Ogress In tīrthaṅkara, the character is not visible on my device. So I presume, it might not be visible on others as well. Should it be changed to Tirthankara? -- Pankaj Jain Capankajsmilyo (talk · contribs · count) 06:30, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Sure. Leave it in parens at the beginning. It was half and half earlier so I picked one. Ogress smash! 06:33, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Ogress parens ?-- Pankaj Jain Capankajsmilyo (talk · contribs · count) 07:00, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Parentheses. Nvm, I did it myself. Ogress smash! 08:28, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
