== Moving articles (e.g., [[Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand]]) ==
 
 
In the future, if you'd like to change the name of an article, please use the '''move''' tab at the top of the article rather than creating a new article and then changing the old one to a link to the new.  This preserves the article's editing history intact.
 
 
In the case of this article, I was able to piece the history back together with deletion and moving, but those options aren't fully available to non-sysops.  The easiest method (which is also available to everyone) is just to use the '''move''' button.  Thanks!  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 20:28, December 28, 2005 (CST)
 
 
== Population estimate ==
 
 
Greetings!  Thank you for your contributions.  I was wondering whether you had a link or a source for the population estimate for the [[Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand]].  The [http://www.cra.org.au/pages/00000226.cgi original link] cites 7,525; you changed the number to an estimated 37,525, but the link remains, now contradicting rather than supporting. I'm guessing that source is from 2001, but I may be wrong.  The only other source I could find online is from 1996: [http://www.aph.gov.au/library/pubs/rn/1997-98/98rn27.htm 3,969]. {{User:Magda/sig}} 07:46, December 29, 2005 (CST)
 
 
== +Gibran ==
 
 
Would you mind engaging in the discussion on [[Talk:Gibran (Rimlawi) of Australia and New Zealand]] before continuing to change the spelling everywhere?  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 13:28, January 3, 2006 (CST)
 
 
== Antiochian.org.au ==
 
 
Regarding the parishes - there are a couple of parishes on OrthodoxWiki that haven't made it onto the Antiochian.org.au website: St Nicholas, Mayfield (NSW), Invercargill Mission (NZ), Hamilton Mission (NZ); and also, one that hasn't made it to OrthodoxWiki - St Cuthbert, Rowville (Vic).  I didn't add the last one because I thought that you probably knew what was going on and had reasons, but just in case I thought you should know. cheers, -- {{User:Pistevo/sig}} 16:07, February 7, 2006 (CST)
 
 
== +Gibran (revisited) ==
 
With recent edits, should he be listed as Bishop or Archbishop? I know that you're "closer to the action" (if you'll excuse the term), but there really should be one marker.  Also, his nomination for elevation (in northern autumn?) and whether he was actually elevated is ambiguous.  Thanks, {{User:Pistevo/sig}} 03:58, February 27, 2006 (CST)
 
 
Yes, it is ambiguous, isn't it...  chrisg 22:22 2006 February 27 (EAST)
 
 
== [[Church of Antioch]] ==
 
 
Hi there.  I hope you'll address some of the issues I've brought up on [[Talk:Church of Antioch]] regarding some of your recent edits.  Thanks!  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 20:18, March 13, 2006 (CST)
 
 
== Your use of Byzantine ==
 
 
Chrisg,
 
 
Many folks use the descriptor ''Byzantine'' for different purposes.  Within Orthodoxy it is generally used to identify the specifically Greek, as opposed to Slavic, tradition.  Outside of Orthodoxy it is often used to differentiate between Chalcedonian Orthodoxy and non-Chalcedonian "Oriental" Orthodoxy.
 
 
In several of your recent contributions I've noticed you using the word in this latter way.  However, this isn't necessary (or even desired) on OrthodoxWiki.  We start from a [[NPOV|Mainstream Chalcedonian Bias]], which means that when we use the word Orthodox we generally mean Eastern or Byzantine Orthodox.  We don't have to include the words "Eastern" or "Byzantine."  Non-Chalcedonians, etc., are not presumed to be included.
 
 
I hope this is clear.  Let me know if you have any questions.  {{User:Dcndavid/sig}} 06:54, March 15, 2006 (CST)
