EMAIL ME IN PRIVATE

If you want to "talk" or "tell me off" in private :-) you can email me via this link Special:Emailuser/Ixthis888.

Adminning

Vasiliki, I noticed that you quite quickly moved to intercept links being added by a newcomer, along with a sort of "disciplinary note" added to his/her talk page. Please let the admins do their job. It can be confusing to a newcomer who may not know what the OrthodoxWiki authority structure is when they instantly receive notes from apparently authoritative editors. Thanks! (By the way, I tried to email this note to you privately, but I guess you have your account set not to receive email via OrthodoxWiki.) —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 12:31, August 6, 2008 (UTC)

No Problem I will stay out of your business :-) see Good-morning also Vasiliki 22:52, August 6, 2008 (UTC)





Enabling email

Go to Special:Preferences. Scroll all the way to the bottom. Click the box next to "Enable e-mail from other users" so that a check-mark shows. Click the "Save" button at the bottom. Done! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 00:49, August 7, 2008 (UTC)

Links in body

You wrote elsewhere: "We dont do links in the body of articles."

Actually, we do that all the time when appropriate. The "External links" section is usually for material that is directly relevant to the whole subject of the article, while adding such links internally into the article is usually for links that are relevant only to a relatively minor point. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 12:09, September 1, 2008 (UTC)

Don't mess with Greeks.

A lawyer and a Greek are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that Greek s are so dumb that he could get over on them easy...So the lawyer asks if the Greek would like to play a fun game.

The Greek is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, and says that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says.

This catches the Greek s attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from The Earth to the Moon?' The Greek doesn't say a word, reaches in his pocket pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the Greek ’s turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?' The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net.

He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the Greek and hands him $500.

The Greek pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the Greek up and asks,

'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'

The Greek reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
