Finding constancy in naming of "Apostle" position[edit]

I have opened a discussion at List of members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (LDS Church) in order to find some constancy in naming. Before I accidentally impose my personal view, it would nice to have a real consensus of proper naming of "Apostle". Any input would be nice.--- ARTEST4ECHO(Talk)

Inclusion criteria for LDS leaders[edit]

I just created a discussion of the inclusion criteria for LDS leaders at Wikipedia talk:Notability (people). I hope that link works.

Enos (Book of Mormon prophet)[edit]

The above article has been tagged for being pretty much exclusively based on the BoM text to date. The page currently at wikisource:A Dictionary of the Book of Mormon/Enos has at least a bit of data which could be used on the topic, and I'm thinking the Book of Mormon: Book of Enos entry in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism here probably as a bit more data for referencing. Anyone want to try getting the existing quality tag removed from the article? John Carter (talk) 23:30, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Child marriage and Teen marriage articles[edit]

Opinions are needed on Talk:Child marriage#Recent changes and Talk:Teen marriage#Recent image addition. The first discussion concerns changes made to the article's terminology, the use of images and whether or not to merge the article. And the second discussion concerns whether or not the lead image is appropriate for the article. Permalinks here and here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 21:31, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Review requested at Cannabis and Latter-day Saints (marijuana)[edit]

I have started a section at the larger Cannabis and religion regarding the stance of the LDS church on cannabis/marijuana. Since I am not highly familiar with Church terminology and concepts, I'd like to invite any folks here to drop in to make sure I have not mis-phrased or mis-interpreted anything, or to add more facts and cites as needed. Thanks for your time! Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 01:58, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

it seems accurate; I try to avoid large blockquotes in my writing, so one improvement I'd suggest is to simply summarize the quoted information. If you want to keep the quote, put it in a footnote. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 16:21, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the input, we ended up trimming it down at Cannabis and religion to summarize but I'm keeping it long in the full article for context. Is the phrasing/format of the full title okay, or needs to be moved? Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 06:57, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Is Benjamin E. Park notable?[edit]

Meet the Mormons:New Faces, New Stories[edit]

I feel that information about the new "Meet the Mormons: New Faces, New Stories" should be added to Wikipedia (I'm seeing it in the Washington DC temple visitor's center Monday Night). However with this follow on movie (with updated information on the original six stories and three new one), I'm not sure how to handle it. Unlike the original movie, it has not been placed into general release, so a separate article may or may not be appropriate. If not, then an additional section in the Meet the Mormons article is probably appropriate. Also, does anyone have specific information as to whether it is Meet the Mormons:New Faces, New Stories or Meet the Mormons:New Faces/ New Stories (, or / after faces). Feelings? (either post here or at Talk:Meet the Mormons).Naraht (talk) 17:25, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

LDS topics are mentioned on Jimbo's talkpage[edit]

... here: User talk:Jimbo Wales#Suggested fix. Any thoughts/input?--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 00:22, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Notability within bio (more specificallly: application of wp:GNG/wp:BIO against wp:AUTH/wp:PROF...and both vis-a-vis vagaries of actual practice![edit]

I.e. - Is Matthew Grow, editor of The Council of Fifty, Minutes, March 1844–January 1846 (The Church Historian's Press, which is an imprint of Deseret Book; 2016), notable? Is Benjamin E. Park, who reviews him here: "The Mormon Council of Fifty: What Joseph Smith’s Secret Records Reveal" (Religion & Politics, September 9, 2016)? Please chime in on a way to determine such questions in a much more consistent manner than at present...here: User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#Suggested_fix.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 19:13, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Can a scholar well known as a writer of reviews be considered notable not only under wp:BIO but as an author under wp:AUTH[edit]

Please weigh in User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#Suggested_fix here or User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#Jimmy_Wales.2C_please_offer_your_opinion here.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 23:12, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Opinions on list of folk beliefs on Mormon Folklore page?[edit]

I'm working on Mormon folklore. I've been adding information about folk customs and material objects, which are a part of Mormon folklore studies. I feel like the list of folk beliefs is overly detailed for the page, and I'm thinking of putting it on a page like List of Mormon folk beliefs or something similar. Opinions?
