please send me everything you people have on werewolves
What's on your mind?
When auto browser fixed
I planned to change the word creature
But I am confused what is better species or race
Species is separated kind of being and races are various forms of same species and all of them exist in this wiki
I prefer words like race and species because being, creature, animal, monster etc. are too specific and not applied to all mythical species because the word being used for exist and alive people, and the word creature for those whom created by someone and so on
But I want to know your opinion

Dear Everyone Here,
As one can tell, my name is Carnotaur, and I am the Founder, as well as one of the Staff at the Ancient Scriptures Wiki. I decided to send this message to the staff, along with my associates, to ask you about Advertising, and/or promotion of our Wiki. Let me Explain.
I founded our Wiki some time ago, and are still working on completing it. It is dedicated to the full documentation of Jewish and Christian scriptures, from the Bible, Torah, Septuagint, along with many fragments and ancient Jewish/Pagan works. I founded the site, and gathered my friends to aid in its formation, because of the lack of Websites, much less Wikis that contain a full sorted archive of religious works. There are websites that are dedicated to this goal, but lack many things, and are sometimes very messy. However, with how the AS Wiki has been built, all of those flaws are eliminated. I have personally found great interests from people over this topic, whether it be for religious belief, or for intellectual purposes. And my goal is to document works outside of the usual canon. So far, there would be a whole plethora of texts to view, many of them very hard to find, and almost unknown to the layman.
I have tried to find Wikis to advertise, and I found your wiki! Unfortunately, there isn't enough traction and the same can be said for the History Wiki, and Literature Wiki, the latter of which we are associated with. We are also associated with the Religion Wiki, which is much better in terms of activity.
Now, I am also a Bureaucrat on the Jurassic Park Wiki, and we a some time back, we did something to help with activity. It’s called a community partnership. You see, one Wiki would advertise on their main page one Wiki, and the other would do the same, making each other sister-sites. I wanted to ask you, and the other staff if they would be interested in this proposal? I do understand that this Wiki is for mythology, and the Bible and it’s appended texts are ether considered historical or mythology. Personally I believe all myths have developed from a certain event or story being told millions of times by many people over the millennia, slowly being modified to fit a cultures view.
However, I am confident that when people become aware of our site’s existence, our wikis will bring more attraction, as well as aiding the Ancient Scriptures Wiki’s growth.
Now that being said, I hope you can help us in this mission to get our site into the public. Thank you, and here is a link to the community:

So I want to ask the other admins on here what they would think about creating a new general category page called "Mythology by Subject Matter" or "Mythology by Subject?"
The category "Mythology by Subject" would then contain other general category pages of various subject matters.
For instance we can have a category called "Astronomical Objects" which contains all articles which relate in one way or another to astronomical objects such as the sun, moon, or stars.
Or we can have a category within "Mythology by Subject" called "Sky" which contains all articles which relate in one way or another to the sky, such as deities which represent the sky, or creatures that reside in the sky or personify it in some way.
I think that there will be some overlap with the categories "Deities by Association" and "Personifications," but "Deities by Association is limited to only deities and not creatures, places, or people, and as for "Personifications," not all things associated with the sky, for instance, are necessarily personifications of it.
What do you all think? I think this could help with navigation and act as a glossary of sorts. We could just call it "Mythology Glossary" for that matter!
Is there a category (or a similar category) about gods and goddesses who are weavers?
Hi there, I just wanted to stop by and say that the wiki is looking better than I ever remember it and you are all doing a great job. I'm glad to see the effort that has been put into reworking this wiki and its formatting!
I fixed all specificity in categories titles but there is still in articles
As this wiki about mythology so no need for specific title include myth, legend, supersition, supernatural, religion, theology, tale, fable, fiction etc. because it is axoimatic that the whole articles and categories in wiki about these things
Also I noticed some articles are not related to mythology rather folklore by general or religions; Although I don't mind this topics but there are wikis about them: https://folklore.fandom.com/wiki and
I wanted to create this from a long time but I found difficulty due to UCP
I don't think he deserves to be bureaucrat
Because he cloned Wikipedia without made missed pages or templates; but at least I vote for him to stay admin.
As advice from Yury; the votes in comments only to avoid socking.
We are sorry that one of our bureaucrats, AZS, has found difficulty in responding due to the UCP. It will cause delays for replying to your messages, so please understand that. Once the UCP problem is solved, AZS will reply you one by one.
Thank you for understanding.
It's the nearing the end of the year, which means it's holiday season! There are lots of myths and folklore that can be emphasized from now until the end of the year.
We can think about cataloging the various myths and folklore surrounding Christmas from around the world. This can include the stories about Jesus's birth, as well as stories about Santa Claus and his elves and reindeer. There are also more specific regional figures and customs such as Krampus in Germany, or the Yule Lads of Iceland.
We can also write about the various ancient pre-Christian holidays and customs, some of which went on to influence the modern celebration. Examples are the Germanic-Norse holiday of Jól (Yule in English), or the ancient Roman celebration of Saturnalia, which celebrated the God Saturn.
Other end of the year myths can also include the Norse belief in Odin's "Wild Hunt," which would occur near the winter solstice.
The last idea I will mention is the story of the Norse god Baldur who was killed by a mistletoe due to Loki's trickery. This myth eventually lead to the custom of kissing under the mistletoe in Western Countries.
I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable holiday season!
This is a discussion thread for how we should go about naming the Norse pages. Some prefer using the Old Norse, while others prefer using the Anglicized names.
Please use this discussion forum to express your opinions on the matter. The most important thing is that the website is consistent in how it names things across the various types of mythologies. So the choice we make here may affect how we name the other mythologies as well.
Please make sure to be respectful when making your arguments.
What is it with monsters and having to count things? Fairies have to count salt and sugar, vampires count rice and seeds. What's that all about?
Are they jinn or demons? Because I've seen some conflicting sources.
So are they a species or a group? Also, I wrongly classed them in the "angelus" genus, due to their resemblance to those.
It's the first day of Fall, and Halloween is fast approaching! Starting October 1st lets emphasize pages associated with Halloween and everything spooky!
Pages to consider working on during the month of October:
Also, consider adding new pages! There still isn't a page on Halloween, or pages for the ancient holidays that influenced it. There also isn't a page for witches.
Enjoy your Fall everyone!
Most of us unanimously agree the Roman Gods and the Greek Gods are the same by different names, right?
