Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Hello, Angellight 888, and welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Please note that OrthodoxWiki is always in development, so not everything works quite right yet. You can help, though!

OrthodoxWiki is a community-edited encyclopedia of Orthodox Christianity. Articles are created and edited by our members, and so everything that we do here is subject to review and revision. The result is a true consensus product, with every interested editor contributing his own knowledge and writing skills. As such, when you feel that criticism of an article is warranted, we encourage you to join in and fix it! Don't worry about breaking anything or doing something wrong—the other editors here are happy to jump in and help you learn.

Deleted article

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)

Your deleted image(s)

Hello! One or more images which you uploaded has been deleted in according with OrthodoxWiki policy, most likely because you did not provide an appropriate tag for it.

Thank you for your contributions! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 11:40, March 16, 2007 (PDT)

Timeline of Church History

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.

Thank you! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 15:54, July 8, 2007 (PDT)

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.
Thanks for all your work! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 06:22, July 17, 2007 (PDT)

Panagia of Tinos

Hi, I created an article on this amazing icon for your information and feel free to contribute any non-copyrighted pictures you might have - LOL! -- Vasiliki 22:52, February 21, 2008 (PST)

Creation of Bio articles

Hi, I noticed that you sometimes create stand alone articles on Metropolitans or Bishops. I just wanted to remind you (if you can of course) remember to update other pages which might need this information. For example, Kyprianos of Cyprus I added a link on the Church of Cyprus page because Kyprianos was part of an existing list of Metropolitans for the church of cyprus! :-) I have also been adding See also links within the bio's relating a link back to the Church see that each priest/bishop etc belongs to. You never told me if you liked the Panagia of Tinos article? Vasiliki 16:56, April 3, 2008 (PDT)

Geia Sou Vasiliki!!! :):) Apologies I did not get a chance to reply sooner. Thanks for the reminder, will do. I love the article on Panagia of Tinos, thanks so much for contributing it! Eimaste eulogimenoi pou se exomai edo!! :) Also very impressed by your industry in all the other important articles you have started doing! I will see if I have any info to add to any of them. Na eisai Kala!! Big cheers,:) Chris. Angellight 888 02:25, April 8, 2008 (UTC)

Your sig

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)

Double-headed Eagle

WOW! Thanks for all those amazing additions to the article... you really have helped give it justice! So much so its already had 101 hits and its been on the OW for only 24 hours! This is an example of when I wreckon we all pull in information as a team to give an article some good ooomph! Vasiliki 03:39, April 24, 2008 (UTC)


Thank you, I hope that your experience of easter was exactly that it was meant to be - Christ Risen in our hearts, so that we can truthfully say, truly indeed He is Risen! Vasiliki 22:50, April 27, 2008 (UTC)

Sub-Saharan Orthodoxy

Concerning your question to Father Andrew about the African Orthodox Church you might read the article Orthodoxy in Sub-Saharan Africa. It provides an over of these early times. Wsk 00:43, July 5, 2008 (UTC)


Howdy! Hayesstw is the expert on the group in question. They did eventually become Orthodox. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 02:04, July 5, 2008 (UTC)

The big Timeline

Go for it. Unfortunately, right now I don't have the time for any major editing (have some big writing projects here at the cathedral), but I hope to sometime in the future. Thanks for all your help. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 03:35, December 21, 2008 (UTC)

UR fantastic

Chris, you are fantastic ..thank you for all the work you have put into the Greek timeline ... I must confess, you asked me a question about the early Christian church and a reference to some books ... I havent had a chance to help u on this one it has been a crazy few days. I need to visit our library to look at what historical books might shed some light on the question. It is interesting that many westerners dont see Greek as a valuable contribution to early Orthodoxy - ROFL. It quite scares me that life is getting too - prove it to me, it kinds loses the romance of blind faith. But when in Rome do as the Romans do ... this is the century God places me in! :) Vasiliki 09:38, January 4, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Vasiliki appreciate it hope we can generate some good information together for this. Yes, this is the century we are all in! Cheers Angellight 888 02:31, January 5, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for all your hard work

I am not the site owner but I am sure that if awards could be given to the most hard-woring Users on Orthodoxwiki there would be three to give out: you, Wsk and ASDamick! I wanted to pause at this point in my OrthodoxWiki career and acknowledge the efforts of those people who really do put a lot of time and effort into keeping OW alive and say Thank you for the work and time you put into making the articles rewarding!!!

Timeline of History of the Church of Russia

You are more than welcome to start working on that one as well as me ... I am just going through various Russian articles and trying to pick up the basic dates that relate to Saints and to Hierarchs ..nothing more otherwise it will get too complex. Besides I dont believe in including political history since it isnt CHURCH history ... Vasiliki 06:55, May 22, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Vasikili :) Once I finish going through the historical info for the Timeline of Orthodoxy in China, I will try to have a look at it. In regards to political history, I do agree with you, however it is often very difficult to give an accurate historical understanding of a topic if you are ignorant of some of the more important surrounding events; the Church militant of course does not exist on this earth in a vaccum, separate from everything around it, and its growth and function has often been controlled in the past by situations completely out of its own control. If on the other hand we were writing a theological article, or something about the Church Triumphant, that again would be a different story. Regarding complexity, if the article cannot impart a flowing historical naarative of factual events detailing the growth of the church in that country/region, it does not really impart much edifying info I think; a list of saints and patriarchs can be found elsewhere as well. As with the main Timeline of Church History, it will take much work, time, research and group effort by everyone to make it a meaningful piece! But good job for starting it!! My two (or three) cents! Cheers! :):) Angellight 888 01:57, May 23, 2009 (UTC)
