Template talk:Tokugawa officials

Parallel construction[edit]

The sections which deal with the Tokugawa shoguns and with Kyoto shoshidai are mere lists of men with the dates each served the bakufu in a specific position.

However, the Bugyō section identifies a number of positions -- but no named officials.

Although this isn't a coherent parallel structure, I think it makes sense at this point; but I can imagine a time in the future where a more consistent structure might be preferred ... or maybe it was an a priori mistake to conflate these officials and their shogunate positions in one over-all navigation template? Just a thought. Wondering? --Tenmei (talk) 19:53, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
