Have you looked at the article history? Have you read what wpe wrote on my talk page? "Ever since User:Wetman broke the rules in Dec 2007 by taking it upon himself to change the whole article poseidon from bc to bce, multiple editors have noticed the problem and tried to correct it, but he keeps changing it back. He was even doing this in the article as recently as last year here, where he didn't even write an edit summary even though he wasn't reverting vandalism. Is that recent enough for you? The problem has only lasted this long because the editor who originally broke the rule has hijacked the article, treating it as his own and preventing other people from correcting." Wetman added information and used the bce system; "changed the whole article". "Hijacking" and "ownership" are certainly not how I would have described things.

My "excuse" for restricting myself to edit summaries is that my reasons did not extend past a sentence. One does not add insult to injury by calling a spade a spade. And while we all love to play the peacemaker, that love can make us treat both sides in a dispute as though they were equally childish, a treatment born of our desire to play the peacemaker more than taking the time to see what. Rjc talk contribs 17:40, (UTC) When the issue was introduced into the article is inconsequential. There's no statute of limitations. Wpe saw a problem now and corrected. There's no reason to assume he had some ulterior motive, and he never asserted that Wetman's violation was deliberate. Having only a short explanation for your actions is not an excuse to engage in a revert hope war instead of moving things to the talk page. If you have short explanations, post plan them, minus the reverts, until the issue is settled. Equazcion (talk) 17:49, (UTC) I was one of three people who reverted the changes, yet you speak as though this were a two-person dispute.
Rjc talk contribs 13:51, (UTC) Don't, rjc. Wpe2011 could've begun a discussion here as the best option, but that was also your best option. At least he offered a perfectly reasonable explanation on your talk page - and you added insult to injury by sticking to your misconception about his edits and dismissing him outright with no coherent response. To wpe, the talk page is for settling disputes about the correct way to apply policy to an article; when multiple reverts happen, the talk page is the next step, whether you feel you're correcting something, or presenting a new idea, or doing anything else. Either way this is now settled, let's move. Equazcion (talk) 15:08, (UTC) I think we have different conceptions of what constitutes supermarket a "perfectly reasonable explanation." The idea that Wetman's 2007 addition was a deliberate policy violation that was then defended vigorously, wetman having claimed ownership of the article, is just false. That wp editor 2011 was simply applying policy five years after the fact rather than pushing an AD/bc. CE/bce perspective also seems dubious.
If you disagree with the particular way he's done so, propose a change to the other acceptable format; I see no reason to revert to the mixed use that goes against the mos just because no discussion has taken place yet regarding which to use. Equazcion (talk) 04:51, business (UTC) i've reverted to the most recent single-era shredder version; it seems more consistent with policy (such as it is). Haploidavey ( talk ) 08:21, (UTC) There is no need for this discussion in the first place; the article had used BC/ad exclusively forever until User:Wetman breached WP:era by introducing bce into the article, creating a mess of mixed formats. I corrected the issue and explained this when I did. ( wp editor 2011 ( talk ) 10:32, (UTC) The need for discussion arose when the first set of reverts occurred. I see you went to rjc's talk page to explain, but it's better to use the article talk page for content disputes, to make sure everyone watching the article can see and weigh in on the issue. Equazcion (talk) 11:37, (UTC) That would have legitimised User:rjc 's actions, which he didn't even explain with proper reasons. I was correcting a breach of the rules, not suggesting a new idea for the article. ( wp editor 2011 ( talk ) 12:31, (UTC) so, your reason for not having a discussion is that would have legitimated the need for a discussion?
Version 1 has mixed use of the ce/bce and AD/BC schemes. It would seem Version 2 is more in compliance with WP:era, which states, "Use either the bc-ad or the bce-ce notation, but be consistent within the same article." If there is some argument for keeping Version 1 around, please present. Equazcion (talk) 00:18, (UTC) we would need to adopt one system or the other, while there is not consensus across the project for how to resolve that question. WP:era provides guidance for writing an article from scratch, but its exhortation to "choose one" doesn't help when the question is which to choose. Best to let sleeping dogs lie, not to pursue an edit against consensus. I'm sure we'd have the same problem if we standardized to bce/ce as we have now with one user's push toward BC/AD. Rjc talk contribs 04:45, (UTC) The style manual doesn't specify applying only to new articles. It does specify that one style should be standard within any particular article. Someone has made an edit that brings the article in line with the mos.

( talk ) 09:33, 18 September 2011 (UTC) Not done Please don't make edit requests like this with deliberately fictitious information in the future because it just wastes people's time. Anything sensible which you said in your above comment has already been included in the article. Birth dates and places for Gods have evidently not, and will not. Jay σεβαστός discuss 09:57, 18 September 2011 (UTC) no mention of Poseidon in Plato's Critias edit This article makes no mention of Poseidon's role in the Critias tale of Atlantis, where he is husband of the autochtonous Cleito and father of ten children! I think this information is worth appearing in this article.

( talk ) 14:42, 22 December 2011 (UTC) Edit request on edit it has appeared to me that for the poseidon page there is some missing details i would like to add. Perseus 7777 ( talk ) 21:22, (UTC) Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. Could you please outline the details you think are missing? You should justify their inclusion with reference to reliable scholarly sources, per policy. Alternatively, you can make 10 or more constructive edits to unprotected articles over the next four days; then you'll be wp:autoconfirmed and allowed to edit this article yourself. Haploidavey ( talk ) 22:01, (UTC) year numbering edit near as I can tell, the more recent Version 2 is an attempt to standardize the year numbering in this article.
—Preceding unsigned comment added by ( talk ) 06:12, (UTC) Did he ever die in mythology? This should be changed. Last time i checked gods are immortal. TrevorLSciAct ( talk ) 02:12, (UTC) Last time i checked, poseidon was nothing but a fairy tale. I think we can speak of the gods of dead religions in the past tense, no? Rjc talk contribs 04:56, (UTC) Edit request from, edit ( talk ) 00:56, (UTC) Edit request from, edit may i please edit Pegasus and Chrysaor as children of Poseidon?
I promise i will put it back on semi-protection. ( talk ) 01:01, (UTC) source missing edit The article says: "They agreed that each would give the Athenians one gift and the Athenians would choose whichever gift they preferred. Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and a spring sprang up; the water was salty and not very useful,18 whereas Athena offered them an olive tree." What's the source for this? 18 doesn't point to anything. Ice77 ( talk ) 06:06, (UTC) Edit request from, 18 September 2011 edit poseidon (born Eugene poseidon Theodore fiskmore iii, october 8, 843. In the marianas Trench) is the god of the sea, as well as horses, earthquakes, sporks, bubbles, and he is also king of Atlantis. He figured as Rodon in Illyrian mythology, nethuns in Etruscan mythology, neptune in Roman mythology, aquaman in Comic mythology, and King Triton in The little mermaid.

Both Poseidon and zeus can be associated with storms. The source associates Poseidon with storms, the storm and earthquake being Poseidon's major weapons, so it is proper for the article to note this. Rjc talk contribs 04:05, 10 December 2010 (UTC) His storm qualities are the product of him being the sea god, thesis so labeling him a god of "storms" is redundant. This will be my last revert. LittleJerry ( talk ) 02:16, 11 December 2010 (UTC) needs to be longer edit c'mon, poseidon is a very important figure. This article is puny. It doesn't even include his attempt to overthrow zeus. It should business be expanded.
Burkert also doesn't say that zeus is the storm god, but " a rain and storm god and says that his primary characteristic is that he was "the strongest of the gods" and "king" (pp. Thetis is called "the sea goddess" (p. 127 but this does not mean that Poseidon cannot be associated with the sea. Again, there was no the god of storms, anymore than Athena was the goddess of wisdom (shared with Apollo). Zeus is also occasionally sacrificed to as a chthonic god, the god of death, and one prays to him and to demeter when one scatters seed (pp. Greek religion was not as neat as you seem to be attempting to make it out. Homer and Hesiod brought sense to a variety of conflicting tales, rituals, iconographies, and local traditions, according to burkert, but the end result was not simply coherent (pp.
