Table Spacing[edit]

hey, anyone notice how the spacing in the table of creation days is off a bit? (specifically days 1 & 3). Any idea how to fix that? --Opensourcejunkie 14:11, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I see that. No idea how to fix it though. Just thought this was an excuse to say hi ^^. --Saz909 22:26, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Maybe surrounding the content of each table cell with divs with heights set to 7em (i.e. <div style="height:7em;">Day ...</div>)? Gigabyte 04:11, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Silly me, the correct way would probably be to use the "vertical-align: top;" css property on the table rows (i.e. <tr style="vertical-align: top;">). 76.206.30.233 00:09, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Bible Versions[edit]

  • It's occurred to me that when we quote bible references, we should also be saying the version of the bible we're using. I'm using the NIV over here, I don't know about anyone else. What's the general consensus on that? --Saz909 16:06, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
Back before there was more than one person (me :-) to have a consensus with, I came to consensus with myself and decided to use NKJV. Mostly it was because I'm a fan of KJV, and NKJV makes a good modern-day equivalent.
what I determined on the guidelines' page was that all scripture linking should be done to BibleGateway's NKJV version. However, as for what version to quote, I didn't place a ruling. Since you and I are the only active members at the moment, if you and I can come to a consensus on the matter, we can put it up on the guidelines' page. In fact, I'm gonna move this discussion over to that page. --Opensourcejunkie 01:42, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
I've contested that decision, etc., there. The Jade Knight 08:52, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Really, this depends on who you are trying to ask: Wikiversity does not yet have a Religion Reference Desk, but what religion's perspective are you asking? You seem to be interested in knowing what the Bible says, but the Bible does not necessarily provide explanations for its own words. Have you read the Genesis account, to begin with?

Some religions do have answers to some of those questions, some do not; this is why it's important to know which religion you're asking. The Jade Knight (d'viser) 18:09, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
