Need to clean up, to complete the merge. --Ed Poor Talk 11:15, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

We might have to start over. There are two categories to merge, not just one:
  1. category:Greek Deities
  2. category:Greek Mythology
Perhaps we should tag all the articles properly first. Like Achaeans - are they deities? I thought they were real historical people. --Ed Poor Talk 11:25, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

They are real historical people but they appear in Greek mythology, mythology doesn't have to require gods, it can include heroes --ChrisGomez 11:27, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

To make our consolidation run more smoothly, let's first tag properly all of the Greek gods or "deities" with category:Greek Deities. Demeter probably never existed, but the Achaeans did. We'll move the former into Greek mythology, the latter into History of Greece or something. But let's do the gods first. --Ed Poor Talk 11:30, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

What about nymphs, or heroes (Hercules, Theseus, Perseus etc.) should they be part of the category Greek Deities? --ChrisGomez 11:39, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

What about people transformed into constellations? --ChrisGomez 11:46, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

Darn good questions. Perhaps Greek mythology is a topic with loose borders. It's hard to say what is myth and what is history, who is real, legendary, or fictional. Not to mention the whole issue of how seriously any of the Greek "gods" were ever worshipped; see polytheism.
Why don't you think of some category tags? There might be some overlap, but we need to find a way to organize the information in a helpful and trustworthy way. --Ed Poor Talk 11:50, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
