Hi Basil!

I just finally got around to checking this message that you left for me a few months ago (copied below) and I appreciate the heads up!  I understand that our articles should pertain to Orthodox Christianity.  Nevertheless, I was hoping the articles deleted could in future be an explanation of Orthodox views on those religions - i.e. a more accurate explanation of how they are "break-aways" from our ancient Church and anything Christian about them they simply copied from us.  That being said and given the views of the editors for OrthodoxWiki, why then do there exist articles about Roman Catholicism?

Thanks again.
  
The Style Manual itself could probably do with some sprucing up.  That aside, though, at least at some point in my career on OrthodoxWiki, I started following the Wikipedia style WRT the "External links" section, which is to capitalize only the first word.  I prefer to keep capitalization somewhat at a minimum, especially to stave off what I sometimes see in Orthodox writing in English, in which it seems that nearly every word gets capitalized at times.

In Christ,

Perhaps it's worth adding some notes about headers into the Style Manual.  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 06:25, March 13, 2006 (CST)

An important feature of the subject orientation of OrthodoxWiki is that articles should pertain to Orthodox Christianity. (See the article on what OrthodoxWiki is about.)

FWIW, though, given the style of the cross (which is a wall cross, not a pectoral—I have one at home), one would think the original image might represent not the Byzantine Empire come to America, but rather an American Tsardom. :)  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 06:00, March 14, 2006 (CST)

There is quite a lot to be said about the relationship of Orthodoxy to the sects and movements you were speaking of (think Cyril Lucaris, for example). However, such pages need to be concise and exclusively focused on their relations to Orthodoxy.

Hi Basil!

I just finally got around to checking this message that you left for me a few months ago (copied below) and I appreciate the heads up! I understand that our articles should pertain to Orthodox Christianity. Nevertheless, I was hoping the articles deleted could in future be an explanation of Orthodox views on those religions - i.e. a more accurate explanation of how they are "break-aways" from our ancient Church and anything Christian about them they simply copied from us.

Dear Paulglass4u:

After some discussion with FrJohn, founder and lead sysop, I've deleted the articles you recently added on Lutheranism, Protestantism, and Old Catholicism.

An important feature of the subject orientation of OrthodoxWiki is that articles should pertain to Orthodox Christianity. (See the article on what OrthodoxWiki is about.) An article about the (purely hypothetical) Middle Earth Faux Baptist Convention would need to include information about the relations between Middle Earth Faux Baptists and Middle Earth Orthodox (such as Saint Gandalf the White), if there are any. Otherwise, users are free to use the Wikipedia project to learn more about the Middle Earth Faux Baptists.

I should note that a few of the pages you added had been deleted multiple times previously, so you're certainly not the first editor to make this mistake.

There is quite a lot to be said about the relationship of Orthodoxy to the sects and movements you were speaking of (think Cyril Lucaris, for example). However, such pages need to be concise and exclusively focused on their relations to Orthodoxy.

Thanks for your work editing. Let me know if you have any questions.



Forgive my mistakes, I would like to contribute, I speak Italian and English will wait a little step by step instructions fr. John. I do not know where to put my contributions in Italian, because we do not have the site in Italian, forgive me! Raggiodisole 10:03, February 23, 2011 (UTC)
