Vacant See

In March of 2007, Metropolitan Nikitas was appointed Director of the Patriarch Athenagoras Orthodox Institute and has relocated to California. See http://www.orthodoxinstitute.org/metropolitannikitasbio.html and also the Press Release at http://www.orthodoxinstitute.org/files/NikitasRelease.doc —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Stmitrophan (talkcontribs) . On August 29, 2007, the Ecumenical Patriarchate website at http://www.ec-patr.org/docdisplay.php?lang=en&id=814&tla=gr announced: μέν Σεβ. Μητροπολίτης Χόνγκ – Κόνγκ κ. Νικήτας μετετέθη εἰς τήν Ἱεράν Μητρόπολιν Δαρδανελλίων,

Why write "VACANT"? Who told you so? This is an undocumented claim. There is no official announcement yet coming from the Office of the Ecumenical Patriarchate that the Episcopal seat of OMHKSEA is "VACANT". Let us wait for further OFFICIAL announcement before jumping into conclusion based on CONJECTURES and bad RUMORS.

John, you're right that perhaps another bishop will seamlessly be consecrated (or moved) to fill the spot. Maybe there is a difference here in the use of terms -- "vacant" as a formal and canonical description and "vacant" simply meaning "there is no current bishop appointed." I assume the term was meant here more casually? — FrJohn (talk)
...and, in any event, it's just a comment on a talk page. It wasn't even incorporated into the article. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 05:24, May 30, 2007 (PDT)
The allegation that the Episcopal seat of the Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and South East Asia is "VACANT" was not merely "a comment on a talk page". This rumor was "incorporated" into the OMHKSEA Wiki article by Wiki User Marcus last May 2007 and he wrote:
"The Episcopacy is currently vacant as of March, 2007 and may be abolished pending the decision of the Holy and Sacred Synod of Constantinople." -
Please see:[1] User MARCUS Revision in OMHKSEA "Episcopacy" on May 04, 2007 .
The readers are hereby warned regarding statements posted here by the said user.

Episcopacy

This section is usually for the bishop of a particular see. However, this metropolis has so many exarchates that I thought it best to include the chief priests for each exarchate. This does not mean, however, that every priest should be listed - this should be done in on the OMHKSEA website, or at the most (and the need is very dubious), in its own article. — edited by sτévο at 23:19, July 15, 2006 (CDT)

There are directories of parishes by state -- maybe a regional directory could be created for this purpose? — FrJohn (talk)
