There's been a request to use some of your edited content on Wikipedia. Would you mind putting the [[Template:Acceptrevised|Acceptrevised]] template on your user page to clarify the copyright (you can add it like this: <nowiki>{{acceptrevised}}</nowiki>?

Hi Pistevo, I thought I might send you a little note to let you know that I have grown up with two of the monks at this monastery (before they were monks). As such, one of the monk's sister is my close friend and she has a million to one photos of this monastery. I have asked her if she would email me some so that we can upload them onto this site. Since you have been looking after all the Australian related pages i thought I might let you know so that you can upload pictures and format them yourself. Do you have an email? I dont know how to give you my email in a private way so you can contact me ...any ideas? [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 14:30, January 20, 2008 (PST)
  
I'm not quite sure what needs to be changed in these succession boxes. Would you mind?

PS. I also visit the monastery of Panaghia Gorgoipikoos in Geelong on a monthly basis and am also very close to the abbess. Is there any information you would like me to get from there that you think would be a good idea for this site. [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 14:33, January 20, 2008 (PST)

Hi Pistevo, in the Sandbox ...its in a previous version ... I have a list of the Parishes in Victoria sorted (with only a few left to go) ... Do you think that this format works? If the answer is yes, how do I go about changing the original article? Do i need to get a adminstrators vote or do I need to simply speak with the originator of the article (you) in this instance? In any case, could you take a look and tell me what you think before I sort of go about 'rapping up' that loose end ... [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 17:36, March 20, 2008 (PDT)

You have not answered anything. Your comments amount to stating that someone else posted the comments you provided no source. I have looked into the article history and you added the criticisms section and content. You are a sysop please source your content. I would like to know where these inaccurate comments are coming from. Lossky very clear did not confuse anything and very clearly stated in the book that his comments WHERE that the word persona and Ousia where misunderstood and misused.
