Creation Edit

I noticed that for the Camelot article we use "Earth settlements", which does not seem like the correct category. It is very debatable that Camelot actually physically existed and it is more part of the Arthurian legends, so calling it an Earth settlement makes it look like a colony on some planet established by Terrans or something. So we need a category called Category:Earth mythology. The King Arthur article also seems awkwardly categorized as "government officials". Again, Arthur was part of the Arthurian legends and not really a government official like Bill Clinton. We need to have a more accurate category for things like that. Note that a lot of the Greek mythology articles such as Achilles (mythology), Hera, etc. could be categorized under "Earth Mythology". Currently they are categorized under "Humans" only. Add Beowulf and Beowulf (poem) to the list. – Distantlycharmed 18:58, November 13, 2010 (UTC)

I am bumping this up. It's been up for a while. Distantlycharmed 22:58, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Can we create this category finally? Or can more people bud in and say what they think. The current category at which most of the above mentioned are is just inaccurate and wrong. Distantlycharmed 20:43, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

I dislike just starting with "Earth mythology". Let's start a level up and do "Mythology". Then we can break that down further if necessary. -- sulfur 22:20, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

How much just pure Mythology do we have? And what would be so horribly bad about Earth Mythology? Isnt it bad enough that half the categories on this site dont match up to what the article really is about? Now you have to go look under Earth Settlement for Camelot? How incompetent. Anyway then just create mythology then, which is far better than the completely inaccurate and misleading category all these things are under now. Distantlycharmed 17:03, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, let me ammend that. Since there are plenty of articles that would fall under the Earth Mythology category, there is no need ot wait to "break down further if necessary. There is no if necessary: it IS necessary. They are not going to stop being Earth Mythologies as we move on. If you find other Mythology (by alien races) then categorize them accordingly.

Actually, that (sulfur's suggestion) is how categorization works best. If we created "Earth mythology", we'd still not have any category for "other mythology" - and if we later create that, we'd need "mythology" as a common super-category, anyway. So, to get an idea for the actual amount of mythology articles that would fall into any specific sub-category, it's best to create the super-category first. That way, we can then decide which ones are sensible and which are not. -- Cid Highwind 17:17, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
