Request for input in discussion forumEdit

Given the closely linked subjects of the various religion, mythology, and philosophy groups, it seems to me that we might benefit from having some sort of regular topical discussion forum to discuss the relevant content. I have put together the beginnings of an outline for such discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/2011 meeting, and would very much appreciate the input of any interested editors. I am thinking that it might run over two months, the first of which would be to bring forward and discuss the current state of the content, and the second for perhaps some more focused discussion on what, if any, specific efforts might be taken in the near future. Any and all input is more than welcome. John Carter (talk)

Archive?Edit

After three years and almost 200 entries, does any of this ever get archived? Asking for a friend. Manannan67 (talk) 04:49, 1 May 2022 (UTC)

@Manannan67 this page hasn't actually been archived since 2008! I have set up automated archiving; the bot should get to it within the next 18 hours. ClaudineChionh (talkcontribs) 07:17, 1 May 2022 (UTC)

Native namesEdit

I am wondering if there is any established convention as to whether saints’ native names or anglicised versions should be used. I understand that the common English name with established usage should be used, but in such areas where a saint has little English-language coverage, what is the protocol. For example, I recently created the page for the Italian Saint John of Tufara, having translated the name. However, as very few English sources reference him, is it better to use his native name of Giovanni. Clarification would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Vesuvio14 (talk) 13:28, 7 June 2022 (UTC)
