Why are userboxes regarding "This user is a Jedi/Sith here?" Or ones regarding Santa Claus. Neither of those are related to the topic of the page "Userboxes/religion." They should be moved, IMO.

Fair use rationale for Image:64px-Sacred-Chao.svg.png
Image:64px-Sacred-Chao.svg.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Why do we have two sections dealing with Abrahamic religions, among others? May I suggest we consolidate "religions" and "interests," since many userboxes seem to be duplicated or misplaced between the two? --Joe Sewell (talk) 16:21, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
Come on, is it that politically incorrect to say "I'm Christian"? Why don't we ban people saying that they're Australian, as if I were from a different race I might... I don't know! If someone is offended by someone mearly stating what they believe, not saying what they believe is better than others, then what are they doing on the internet? In fact, what are they doing outside of a closet? Because that's the only place you could possibly survive if "harsh" statements like those hurt you. Time to go make my own userbox, one where I can freely express myself (see Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19 for reference) - Bonzai273 (talk) 03:36, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Greetings, I see that you have chosen to conspicuously identify as a "Nontheistic Wikipedian" Me too! Currently there is a proposal to delete the article Nontheism or merge and redirect it to Atheism. Greg Bard (talk) 22:30, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
New Religions Sections
The introduction to this section claims the following religions are often inspired by older religions. Not only does this seem rather superfluous, but all the Userboxes following are... Pastafarian. Would this section be better if we deleted the line altogether? LacsiraxAriscal (talk) 00:39, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Hidden code moved from User:UBX/Userboxes/Religion
I was attempting to edit this article: Many Pagan and Ancient Greek etc.-related religions were categorized incorrectly, and a few userboxes were listed twise, and the same category and the same religon was listed as a separate category up to three times. I also was avoiding "other" categories. I've been editing for 6 hours and it's stil not done!!! I started crying! The listed as I was typing into Notepad is below, someone please finish it!!!! I have categorized up to the end of the second time Judaism is listed as a category; the section below it is "Islam". Some larger categories may need further breakdown, such as Christianity, though I am not sure if subheading go that small. Entire notepad text below after two line breaks.
These religions usually center around one universal creator god, a set of rules to follow to attain perfection in the afterlife, etc.
- Why skould they be here at the talkpage and not among the other boxes on the page we should be talking about here? Bandy boy (talk) 11:39, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
yikes, page too long!
This page is much too long—so many templates that quite a few don't display properly. Unless there is serious objection, I'm going to split it out like I did with Wikipedia:Userboxes/Politics recently. ⇔ ChristTrekker 17:08, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
interest vs belief
Is the separation of "interest/expertise" userboxes from those expressing "belief" more confusing than helpful? Maybe it would be better to simply alphabetize based on the subject, and put interest and belief boxes together. ⇔ ChristTrekker 17:26, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
- I think it is useful. If a user wants to express that they are able or willing to collaborate on articles about a particular religion, an interest/expertise userbox is much more informative and useful than one that expresses belief. -- Black Falcon (talk) 05:56, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Dandi Swami's Greek Version
two ‘Other spiritual and mystical beliefs and philosophies’ sections?!
There are two ‘Other spiritual and mystical beliefs and philosophies’ sections. Why? I made userboxes (below) fitting those areas but don't know where to put them. Pythagoreanism was mysticism; Platonism included a theology (and a University of Manchester PhD professor found an atheist message encoded in Plato's texts,) and the later versions, Neopythagoreanism & Neoplatonism are considered religious/mystical/esoteric, besides philosophy. So, various mystics & Hellenists (whether polytheist, Platonic theist, atheist,) would look for these.
- Template:User Pythagoreanism
- Template:User Platonism
- Template:User Neopythagoreanism
- Template:User Neoplatonism
If someone clears up this page so there's one ‘Other spiritual and mystical beliefs and philosophies’ section the way it should be, please add these philosophy-religions.--dchmelik (t|c) 12:43, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
Is there any reason the religion userboxes are at User:UBX/Userboxes/Religion rather than Wikipedia:Userboxes/Religion? All the other userboxes are in Wikipedia:Userboxes. Why not religion? Yours aye, Buaidh 04:49, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
