Consensus on Wikipedia on groupings of Christian denominations[edit]

I opened a discussion on groupings in Christianity, of which there currently seems to lack a consensus on Wikipedia. The discussion might be of interest for followers of this talk page. Please see: Talk:Christianity#Denominations [Archived to: Talk:Christianity/Archive_58#Denominations. Peacedance (talk) 15:00, 2 June 2019 (UTC)]. Chicbyaccident (talk) 12:19, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

color/image changes[edit]

Please discuss the color/image changes instead of just flipping it back and forth, per WP:BRD, etc. tahc chat 16:14, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Hiding the cross icon[edit]

Is there a good justification for enabling the cross icon (the one alongside to the portal link) to be replaced with the ichthys, given that there is now a larger cross at the top? My understanding is the intention of hiding the cross icon was to make this sidebar more appropriate for article about those Christian groups which do not use the cross as a symbol. I think the larger cross would present more of an issue than the portal icon. --Hazhk (talk) 14:50, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

If one checks {{Christianity by country}}, {{Catholic Church sidebar}}, {{Eastern Christianity sidebar}}, {{Eastern Orthodox Church sidebar}} and {{Oriental Orthodox sidebar}} (also {{Bible sidebar}} by some aspects), none of these sidebars contain cross but other image (with one template, {{Catholic Church sidebar}}, containing one cross but within image and not visible by first glance i.e. without clicking on photo to enlarge it). That is just one reason (non-primary) to keep cross image in this template. --5.43.72.55 (talk) 04:11, 25 September 2020 (UTC) [e]
I saw it immediately so this could just be your issue. Walter Görlitz (talk) 04:33, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
@Walter Görlitz: Your comment is unclear. --5.43.72.55 (talk) 15:38, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Cross proportions[edit]

I think that there are better proportions for cross. Example (that's first result from Google search now).
At this photo (seen here too), assuming someone "official" created that cross (because it was inside of church's yard), proportions are as if plus (+) is made with two element widths below (three "points" make upper "line", left line and right line; five "points" make line below).

Also, it should be more thin.

File:Latin Cross.svg or File:Cruz Latina.jpg are better representations for me to use in this template and elsewhere.

Crusades and Crusading[edit]

Apologies, added Crusading to the side bar before I noticed the instructions. This is subject to a long tortuous discussion on both pages talk pages around scope, geographic spread and historical periods. It seems to be developing that the subject needs more than just the Crusades article which is predominantly about Crusades in the Holy Land with very slight summaries of other periods and geographies. Any feedback and comment on that is welcome, there are some very set positions and consensus would be assisted by a wider range of views.

Hopefully, there are no real objections to the change of the side bar, let me know if there are any major issues and perhaps there is another solution to linking to both articles. Norfolkbigfish (talk) 10:03, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

The ongoing RfC and sporadic references at Talk pages ([1], [2]) show that most editors say that the Crusades article should be kept as the main article of the general topic "Crusades" instead of transforming it into an article about the Levantine Crusades or the Crusades in the Holy Land. Before the RfC is closed, there is no point in starting new and new discussions. Borsoka (talk) 03:48, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

"Books of the bible"[edit]

For reference, I have removed the link to Books of the Bible. That article topic was with Biblical canon in August 2020. There obviously is no need for two links to the same article. It might be desirable to link "Books of the Bible" to a subsection of the article? --Hazhk (talk) 00:02, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
