== Creating new templates: "Merge to" and "Merge from" ==

I have noticed a tendency where some new users are creating new articles for subjects where there is an existing article already. I thought about creating two templates here on OW, so as to mark these articles, patterned on the Wikipedia templates: '''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Merge_to Template:Merge to]''' and '''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Merge_from Template:Merge from]'''. Any technical wizards out there who can help to create a version of these here on OW? Thanks, [[User:Angellight 888|Angellight 888]] 10:28, August 23, 2013 (HST)

Suggestion for a 'Latest Church news' feature on OrthodoxWiki homepage

The items under this rubric would be linked to relevant entries in OrthodoxWiki, for example:

Format: each listed news item will have a short ~20-word description allowing links to relevant entries from OrthodoxWiki, besides a link to the original news source for full details. For example:

4 Nov 05: His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I visits 'Economist' HQ in London and the London School of Economics and Political Sciences; states that Ecumenical Patriarchate could be Europe's bridge with Islam (original news sources: ana.gr (1), ana.gr (2))

Update frequency: ideally daily, but perhaps every 2-3 days or weekly to reduce the burden of editing/updating it

Possible sources: official Church pages, Christian newsagencies, and news aggregators like http://news.google.com (search using suitable keywords, e.g., http://news.google.com/news?&q=bartholomew%20ecumenical - http://news.google.com/news?&q=alexy%20II - http://news.google.com/news?&q=orthodox+church )

Pros: dynamic content that adds life and "up-to-the-minute" currency to OrthodoxWiki; increases visitor retention/repeat visitors' rates; fosters/encourages the building of a strong online community; raises readers' awareness/presents them with an 'agenda for specific prayers' about the universal Church (Church around the world), the one Body of Christ, and the daily affairs and concerns of fellow Christians worldwide, not just in the West or in the country where one lives

Cons: time and deication needed to maintain it

Hi, the best way to do this would be to simply include RSS feeds from a few different news sources. I have this set up, in a very basic way, at www.orthodoxnewswire.com. Let me check into the possibilities for doing this on OWiki. I'm not sure this feature is available yet, but hopefully in the future. I don't think it makes sense to do this manually. Fr. John
