  • The more I think about it, the less convinced I am that the beliefs need their own articles. Why not, you ask, especially when the Civ6 pantheons all have their own articles? Consider these points:

    • There's no dedicated article for beliefs - they're covered in detail in Religion (Civ6). (And before you ask, I don't think they need to be covered in a separate article, since the two are inextricably intertwined - religions serve no purpose without their beliefs.)
    • Their Civilopedia entries don't have a Historical Context section.
    • They don't have unique icons, like the pantheons do. There are only icons for the individual belief classes (Founder, Follower, Worship, and Enhancer), and your icon for Lay Ministry is simply a renamed icon for Founder Beliefs.
    • All of the Worship Beliefs unlock buildings that share their name (which already have dedicated articles), and the Warrior Monks Follower Belief links to the unit it unlocks. If you were to create articles for all the beliefs, you'd have to follow a different naming convention for these.
    • None of the existing articles have links, apart from those that are inserted by templates. This, if anything, makes navigating the wiki more difficult for readers.
    • The existing articles all have unnecessary categories, such as Religion and Religion images (Civ6) - a belief is neither a religion nor an image, and the former category is reserved for overview articles that deal with recurring concepts in the Civilization games.

    In short, I don't think the belief articles provide enough unique or specific information to warrant keeping them up. If you have a compelling argument why they should remain, please make it; otherwise I'll probably start deleting them within a day or two.

    • So, I have just came back and read this. Those are quite convicing reasons and since you have already deleted them, I see no reason to reintroduce them.

      Shame the beliefs don't have unique icons...

      Yes, that is unfortunate. LogicEcho (talk) 15:23, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

  • I noticed that you've recently created pages for some of the religious beliefs in Civ6 (Lay Ministry, Church Property, Cross-Cultural Dialogue, and Papal Primacy). I'm not convinced that these elements need their own pages, but if you feel strongly about keeping them and/or creating others, there are some important tidbits to remember:

    • Follow all pagenames with a space and a parenthetical abbreviation denoting which game it applies to (e.g. " (Civ6)"). Only overview and definition pages should not include this parenthetical. This wiki covers every Civilization game and spinoff in existence, and many games include elements with identical names, so the parentheticals help readers and editors easily identify which game the page focuses on.
    • Follow the same convention explained above with filenames - most of the templates automatically add image files to pages, but only if the parenthetical is present.
    • Make sure you use the correct template for the page. Your recent edit to Environmentalism (Civ6) replaced the template with one that removed the quote, its source, and some relevant categories from the page.
    • Do not add irrelevant categories to pages - for example, beliefs are not religions, and an element is not an image.
    • If the template you're using adds irrelevant categories to a page, consider creating a new template. You can open the Source Editor to see the one that's currently being used.
    • Use the Preview button to see how your new page will look before creating it. This way, you can go back and add any information that's missing instead of having to perform micro-edits after creating it.
    • You can use templates to automatically insert images and/or links in pages. This is easiest to do with the Source Editor - if you want to see the ones we use, click here.

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

  • Dr. Österreich, this series starting here of edits is clearly edit farming. Please stop it.
