I started these Subcategories to help crosscheck the succession boxes that are in our bishop articles.

Since there are so many articles on so many bishops, and the number will grow over time, for greater organizational purposes I propose that we follow the convention used over at Wikipedia, where they have sub-categories for: "[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Eastern_Orthodox_bishops_by_period Category:Eastern Orthodox bishops by period]." Thus, for example, they have sub-categories for bishops by century:
 +
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:19th-century_Eastern_Orthodox_bishops 19th-century Eastern Orthodox bishops‎]
 +
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:20th-century_Eastern_Orthodox_bishops 20th-century Eastern Orthodox bishops‎]
 +
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:21st-century_Eastern_Orthodox_bishops 21st-century Eastern Orthodox bishops]‎, etc.
 +
Perhaps most of our entries will fall under either the 19th, 20th or 21st centuries, so may just need these 3 subcategories to begin; also, the name of the category here on OW would be shortened to something like "19th-century bishops‎". Thought I would raise the idea at any rate. Would be willing to go back and add the categories to existing articles. Cheers, [[User:Angellight 888|Angellight 888]] 11:56, February 6, 2012 (HST)
