vanity, non-notable, apparently just a webpage. possibly redirect to Neo-Druidism. dab(ᛏ) 06:18, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Delete no evidence of notability. --Seselwa 11:08, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Dont Delete Commend on this deletion suggestion by MoonCrow:
The Druïcca Tradition is a Dutch coven, the main site is in Dutch (druicca.nl) and more will be
translated at druicca.org.uk. For the english countries the Druicca Tradition is indeed not more than a webpage. But also in the english speaking countries people have made their own synthesis between neo-druidry and wicca and this is called druicca. There is no athority who can say who is druicca or not, everony who had made his/here own synthesis between druidry and wicca can call him/here self a druicca. No need to be initiated by a coven or whatever.
An example of someone with here own synthesis of druidry and wicca is Laurie Cabot (lauriecabot.com), she calls this celtic wicca, I would call it druicca.
Delete. Articles on a particular coven are no more notable than articles on a particular church (unless it's a particularly large or historically notable church). Articles on somebody's personal idea of how to synthesize druidic and wiccan ideas are also not notable. RickK 20:37, Apr 5, 2005 (UTC)
I think I agree with the redirect to Neo-Druidism. An entry can be made there, and if it becomes more notable and a larger article, it can be moved out into its own page at a later time. --Fuzzball!(talk) 01:46, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I object to redirecting neologisms anywhere. RickK 04:27, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
Dont Delete Druicca is just another term for celtic wicca, celtic wicca is an inacurate term for the synthesis of druidism and wicca, druicca is better. Druicca is not just one group in the Netherlands, its larger and known as celtic wicca. But I thought Druicca was a better name (celtic wicca ? http://cyberpict.net/tns/ntwcc.htm). It would be better to delete Celtic Wicca or redirect it to Druicca, and move the content of Celtic Wicca to the Druicca subject. MoonCrow.
Such an action would probably result in your being blocked from editing for vandalism. You can't move real subjects to titles that you just made up. RickK 23:48, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
I'm only suggesting, I'm not moving things (don't plan to also). It also could be the other way around, if you want to redirect Druicca, redirect it to Celtic Wicca; Druicca is a contraction of Druidism and Wicca. MoonCrow
What part of "we don't take made up words" do you not understand? RickK 04:15, Apr 7, 2005 (UTC)
Eh, what isn't made up? Gerald Gardner 'made up' wicca, someone 'made up' celtic wicca, of which serious students of the celtic culture say it is nonsence, it doesn't excist, just because you put celtic before wicca doesn't make it celtic. There is no celtic wicca, it is wicca with celtic elements, not celtic wicca. Most of the wicca traditions were 'made up' still I find a lot on wikipedia about these. I have not made up a tradition, I only thought of a better name for it, since there is no 'celtic wicca' because it is a synthesis between wicca and celtic ideas, a better name for this would be Druicca. It is a better 'made up' name for an excisting tradition. I don't understand why this is such a problem. I'm oke with the remarks above that it is to small to be noted as a separed subject. I'm asking all the people above who want to delete or redirect it, if it is oke with them to redirect the druicca subject to the celtic wicca subject, and if it is oke if I put a footnote under the page about my objections to the name 'celtic wicca' and my suggestion to rename it to 'druicca', that there are people in the Netherlands who already did that and why. If most people don't agree with me I realy won't push it, I thought this page was ment to discuss this subject? If most people want to delete the druicca subject, it will be so, if most people want to redirect it to celtic wicca, it wil be so, if most people want me to shut up about druicca on wikipedia, it will be so (just tell me), if most people think it's oke for me to put a footnote on the celtic wicca page, I will do so. I was just excited that I thought of a new name, I realy like the name, it has a nice sound to it. I also understand the value of people who guard the integrity of wikipedia, you have valid arguments, I give you mine arguments, you decide. It is up to you all. MoonCrow
I found another 'made up' word about exactly the same subject on wikipedia: Druidcraft. I also improved the druicca article a bit if that is still oke? MoonCrow
Druidcraft gets 623 unique Google hits, and is even used in the title of at least one book. Druïcca gets 13, including this page and the article that we're trying to delete. RickK 23:34, Apr 8, 2005 (UTC)
Yeh that's right, Druicca is not that well know jet, to small for a page of it's own, I agree with that. Google: with Druïcca 13 unice hits, with Druicca you'll get a little bit more. But is the Druicca page still the vanity page you want to delete or is it a marginal subject that maybe could be redirected (maybe to Celtic Wicca)? Some of the Google hits for Druidcraft are for the Druidcraft Tarot, with is in Dutch translated as the Tarot of the Druids, a wrong translation, they thought Druidcraft means the Craft of the Druids. But it stands for the synthesis between Druidry and Witchcraft. I feel very strongly that Druicca is a better name for this. But maybe it's not the time to plublish this on wikipedia yet and should I first publish something in the Touchstone magazine of OBOD and write that book that I wanted to write for so long.

Delete. This article looks more like an invitation to convert to Druicca. It seems like a promotion to me. --Randolph 18:37, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Ofcourse I write positive about druicca, but there is no organisation you can join. Wicca, Druicca and Druidry don't look for people to convert; like they say in Hindoeism: all traditions are different like different rivers, but they al go to the ocean. Druicca is also much inspired on nature: the more varation there is (in nature, in traditions), the better. MoonCrow, april 12, 2005
