==Names of Bishops in the Church==
 +
Hi Magda, I really appreciate what you do ...you do a lot of awesome editing but I really have to disagree with 1 change you are making to the 'Metropolis of XXX' articles that I have created over the past few days. This issue I have is over-riding the link I set up for the Bishops. I have noticed that you include the Metropolis area as a title to their name Eg. His Emincence [[John (Black) of Area A and B]]. I dont agree with including the 'of Area A and B' part because that title could change with time. They may become a Metropolitan to another area perhaps and then the title would no longer be relevant. I think it suffices to just use their name with Surname in the brackets ..leaving the title out of it? What do you think? Is their something I dont know that I should know for the reason to include the title? -- [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 14:00, February 21, 2008 (PST)

==Help needed==
 +
Hello Magda, I would like to bring to your attention problem with the article [[John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon]] where one of the users keep removing valid academic source to the criticism of the J.Z., not providing any valid academic reason for removal, but rather expressing his own opinion on the matter. Since I know that user from Wikipedia and have experienced his disgraceful behavior there, I am asking for help before situation ends up in the formal request for mediation (just as happened there). Thank you.

==Holy Sepulchre==
  
== [[New Martyrs]] ==

Hmm, you're right about the spelling of Sepulchre. That was bothering me throughout, but I didn't want to change the title of the article. Do you think it should be Americanized?
  
I'm actively putting together a separate article at this moment!  :) {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 15:35, January 3, 2006 (CST)
+
As for what I did changed, there were a number of verbs in the history section of the article in the present tense (that were about past events). So that's what I meant by present to past tense in history. I stopped after the history section (except for changing annointed to anointed in the next paragraph), so that's why you don't see changes throughout. Oh, and I also messed with what I thought was awkward wording once or twice. Please change anything you think needs undoing.
  
== Searching ==

Thanks for the kind words about my editing. I really need to start getting back on more. Honestly, I just don't have the free time that I did in college. Plus, my job requires me to sit in front of a computer 8 hours a day, so when I get home I sometimes just want to get away from these machines!

My preference is for there to be individual articles titled "List of Xes of Y," where "Xes" is the highest rank for that see, e.g., [[List of Patriarchs of Constantinople]] which lists all bishops of Byzantium/Constantinople, no matter their rank.  The category would be included in all articles about those bishops, and the "List of" article would also be included in the category.  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 19:28, January 5, 2006 (CST)

== Issues Logging In ==
I agree, Magda. In my mind I had questioned their inclusion in the template from the start. And their listing only added unecessary length to the "wanted" list, but after a while I didn't see them being removed. So, my attempt to remove them by writing articles!!! Please remove them. I didn't want to removed them unilaterally. [[User:Wsk|Wsk]] 06:35, January 8, 2006 (CST)

=='Anglo Saxon' versus 'Greek'==
+
== Capitalization ==
You are right in your observation and I feel that I am right in mine. My contribution was based on personal observation and interpretation, and also from listening to others (though there is certainly no unanimity). It transpired that Timothy Ware is most appreciated for his scholarly work and forgiven for his 'racist' attitude towards Greeks because it is demonstrated so politely. I would argue that his 'racism' is a product of his generation. But it also the manifestation of the unreconciled heart and mind of a particular kind of convert. His intellectual approach to the Greek Orthodox faith exemplifies all the rigour of a Protestant heart and of a need for 'straight' empiricism; these are truly worthy attributes, but not appropriate for tackling the depths of Greek Orthodoxy or for coming to terms with the inherent Orthodoxy that comes from being born into an ancient Orthodox dailiness. In the case of Timothy Ware, this gap between scholarly rigour and the Orthodox condition cannot be reconciled, so it is resolved through the 'racist' attitude he was probably born into and educated by.

At least, that is how I view the situation for the time being.

Yes, I was having some issues with the picture, but I think I finally have it down.

Hello, Matushka - thank you for the extra links, concerning St. [[Donald of Ogilvy]] and his holy Nine Maidens!  Seeing as how you have found much about the Nine Maidens, I feel it is only proper to do an article about them, now that you have pointed me in the right direction. Thank you again!
Ahh, these ones I do understand.  Main problem: there are two Serbian dioceses in Australia-New Zealand, and H.G. Nikanor's box had to reflect that he succeeded two bishops.

Explanatory: Since H.G. [[Nikanor (Bogunovic) of Banat|Nikanor]], they have been reigned over or administered by one bishop, but the bishops immediately before that (Their Graces Sava and Luka) were only just communion with each other.  Before that, they were out of communion. &mdash; edited by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="red">Pι</font>]][[Special:Listusers/sysop|s]][[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="yellow">τ</font>]][[Special:Contributions/Pistevo|é]][[User:Pistevo|<font color="blue">vο</font>]] at 19:51, June 9, 2006 (CDT)

I think what I was trying to do with the ethics articles I edited was to designate them as essentially persuasive, not encyclopedic in the sense of being purely a retelling of facts. No doubt the Church's position should be clearly stated (if there is one), but some of the articles deal with issues that have never been clearly and dogmatically defined. They just lack that neutrality that I see as intrinsic to an encyclopedia article.
+
  
I guess it's really a matter of defining what the goals for Orthowiki are and how much leeway we want to give for deviations from a strictly encyclopedic style. To me, it just seems like the talk pages would be a better place for opinion stands on debatable issues, if we ever have enough people to start really using them.
