Hey Chris, glad to see you here. I noticed Gabriela deleted your stub on Kollyvades and I wanted to give you an explanatory note . All this stuff is explained in the "welcome"documents, but that isn't always the most accessible format for people. Anyway, we're hesitant to create articles without content because it looks bad when people are searching for something and find the article, but there's nothing there. If this happens a lot, they might begin to think that OrthodoxWiki is a whole lot of nothing! We think it's better to build slowly, creating articles with some good content - that are actually useful to people - than to expand too quickly and too "thinly." Hope that helps, and welcome again. — FrJohn (talk)

I've noticed you've been adding a lot to the Timeline of Church History article lately. Thank you! My one concern is that many of the entries amount to whole paragraphs. The idea is for entries to be brief (rather like newspaper headlines) and include links to the main articles.
Would you mind summarizing your recent additions in this way? I'd hate for content to be lost, though, so perhaps you might want to move that extra material into various main articles.
- Turkey routinely does small things to annoy the EP, but few are of genuine historical significance. Inclusion in the Timeline article ought to be from the point of view of what is likely to make the history books 100 years from now. I do agree that the ongoing persecution could be documented, but perhaps this might be better covered in an article of its own. (Perhaps Turkey and the Ecumenical Patriarchate?)
- The purpose of the Timeline articles is simply to give a shorthand overview, like a series of newspaper headlines, not to include all the information on a given topic. If you find yourself making a single event's entry several lines long, in most cases it should probably be shortened and then a new OrthodoxWiki article created which can be linked to from the Timeline.
Hi Angellight ... can you hold off from editing on Panormitis for today as I am still in my article. Vasiliki 17:08, January 21, 2008 (PST)
Howdy! You may have noticed that when you include your signature in Talk pages that all text following it is shrunk and supertitled. You need to include a </sup> at the end of it! :) —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 06:05, January 22, 2008 (PST)
