Coordinators' working group[edit]

Hi! I'd like to draw your attention to the new WikiProject coordinators' working group, an effort to bring both official and unofficial WikiProject coordinators together so that the projects can more easily develop consensus and collaborate. This group has been created after discussion regarding possible changes to the A-Class review system, and that may be one of the first things discussed by interested coordinators.

All designated project coordinators are invited to join this working group. If your project hasn't formally designated any editors as coordinators, but you are someone who regularly deals with coordination tasks in the project, please feel free to join as well. — Delievered by §hepBot (Disable) on behalf of the WikiProject coordinators' working group at 05:36, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

I strongly object to the term Mythology with Hinduism. Get it removed please excuse my language but a derogatory term term deserves nothing else but utter contempt for the author with such a devious mind. it betrays his narrow-mindedness maybe his familiarity with Biblical myths make him doubt History of real civilizations?. As I said earlier "t is a congenital tendency of Cultists posing as historians to depict Santana Dharmic ittihas or History as mythology. Please delete the word "mythology" from the article when referring to Hinduism. If at all anything is a myth it is the cult of self-proclaimed prophets who proclaimed non-stop communication with the MAKER but still was never informed that the Earth was almost spherical as the Hindus always knew including the precession of the equinoxes and factored it in their day to day activities (Vedic Astrology). Contrast this with the flat earth prophets who spawned jealous desert creeds, it becomes apparent which is the myth. One should of course give a "left handed" compliment to the cassocked historians for trying! As Count Louis Hamon, known better as Cheiro, stated: "People who in their ignorance disdain the wisdom of ancient races forget that the great past of India contained secrets of life and philosophy that following civilizations could not controvert, but were forced to accept. For instance, it has been demonstrated that the ancient Hindus understood the precession of the equinoxes and made the calculation that it [a complete cycle] took place once in every 25,870 years. The observation and mathematical precision necessary to establish such a theory has been the wonder and admiration of modern astronomers. They, with their modern knowledge and up-to-date instruments, are still quarreling among themselves as to whether the precession, the most important feature in astronomy, takes place every 25,870 years or every 24,500 years. The majority believe that the Hindus made no mistakes, but how they arrived at such a calculation is as great a mystery as the origin of life itself.

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:24, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Hindu mythology articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Hindu mythology articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

Makara (Hindu mythology)[edit]

Makara on lentil

I have been expanding the article Makara (Hindu mythology) and notice that it is included in {{WikiProject Paranormal} and {{WikiProject Cryptozoology}. I believe these categories are entirely inappropriate for this article and propose to remove them. Does this group object to this? Unless I recieve strong arguments supporting Makara as Cryptozoology and Paranormal I will remove those templates from Talk:Makara_(Hindu_mythology). Thanks for considering this.-Marcus334 (talk) 05:58, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

I am interested in contributing in WikiProject Hinduism/Mythology. I would like to join this group and extend contribution and support. Iramuthusamy (talk) 16:50, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
