Hey there!  I noticed that you uploaded a couple images today, but you forgot to tag them appropriately with the appropriate [[Help:Image licenses|image license]].  I put one on [[:Image:Philokalia.jpg]], but [[:Image:Ladder of Divine Ascent.jpg]] still needs one.  Thanks!  --[[User:ASDamick|Rdr.

Hi Derek,
 +
 +
It's great to see more contributions. Just one thing though - I'd like to try to preserve N.P.O.V. as the main tone of voice throughout OrthodoxWiki. This basically means adopting a descriptive rather than presecriptive tone, so instead of "The Filioque is a heresy" we'd say something like "Others think that the addition of the filioque clause to the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed was the consummation of a creeping heresy in the Western church." (For more on NPOV, please see [[OrthodoxWiki:Style_Manual#Neutrality_and_the_OrthodoxWiki_Bias]]).
 +
 +
The rationale behind this is to recognize that solidly Orthodox people can hold different positions on this topic. If there's a disagreement about something let's strive to say who thinks what and why rather than just stating our own opinion. I hope that makes sense!

Thanks again, [[User:FrJohn|Fr. John]]

Thank you for your contributions and welcome to OrthodoxWiki! Fr. John


Greetings Derek! I hope you don't mind, but I fixed up your quote on the Buzz page a little bit. Please feel free to fix it back up if you wish - they're your words! Thanks, Fr. John 15:00, 6 Feb 2005 (CST)

Hey there! I noticed that you uploaded a couple images today, but you forgot to tag them appropriately with the appropriate image license. I put one on Image:Philokalia.jpg, but Image:Ladder of Divine Ascent.jpg still needs one. Thanks! --Rdr. Andrew 22:01, 28 Mar 2005 (EST)

NPOV

Hi Derek,

It's great to see more contributions. Just one thing though - I'd like to try to preserve N.P.O.V. as the main tone of voice throughout OrthodoxWiki. This basically means adopting a descriptive rather than presecriptive tone, so instead of "The Filioque is a heresy" we'd say something like "Others think that the addition of the filioque clause to the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed was the consummation of a creeping heresy in the Western church." (For more on NPOV, please see OrthodoxWiki:Style_Manual#Neutrality_and_the_OrthodoxWiki_Bias).

The rationale behind this is to recognize that solidly Orthodox people can hold different positions on this topic. If there's a disagreement about something let's strive to say who thinks what and why rather than just stating our own opinion. I hope that makes sense!

Thanks again, Fr. John
