Forums: Helping Hand > Cleric Alignments vs. Worshiper Alignments

Use the following template for a nicely presented post:

I noticed that, in the 3e section of our {{Deity}} infobox, we have a field `cleric alignment3e`, but the heading in the infobox shows up as "Worshiper alignment". These are not the same thing.

Can we fix this?

In 3e at least, cleric alignments are relatively rigid and have fixed rules—although there are exceptions to those rules, such as Sune allowing paladins. Worshiper alignments, on the other hand, have no restrictions, and, in fact, it is clearly stated that most everyone worships all the major gods to some extent, even those diametrically opposed to her or his alignment. Better to appease Umberlee, for example, than end up at the bottom of the ocean.

We've had this discussion before, see Forum:Organizing the Deity template and Template talk:Deity. TLDR: cleric alignment was the original field name, worshipers was already taken, so the label was changed to the more generic "worshiper alignment" and the parameter name was kept for backward compatibility.
