==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)

Sounds great==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 what did you have in mind? (Or were you hoping rather expressing his own opinion on the matter. Since I'd provide know that?) :) {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 14:24user from Wikipedia and have experienced his disgraceful behavior there, December 23, 2005 I am asking for help before situation ends up in the formal request for mediation (CSTjust as happened there). Thank you.

Could we imply that you are endorsing/advising readers to buy with confidence from these suppliers? (There are many more, but I am not sure what the rules are? Do they need to pay to you first to be listed?). ER==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?
As for what I'm actively putting together did changed, there were a separate number of verbs in the history section of the article at this moment! :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) {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 15:35, January 3so that's why you don't see changes throughout. Oh, 2006 (CST)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! [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 19:01, March 22, 2008 (PDT)

My preference is for there to be individual articles titled "List of Xes of Y== Ekatontapyliani versus Ekatontapiliani ==Hi," where "Xes" is ur question on Anastasios Orlandos got me thinking ... can u do a hit on the highest rank for that word Ekatontapyliani versus Ekatontapiliani to see, e.g., [[List of Patriarchs of Constantinople]] which lists all bishops of Byzantium/Constantinople, no matter their rank. The category would is hit more frequently or if you cant be included in all articles about those bishops, and the "List bother how can I do that sort of" article would also be included in the category. {{a check?

=='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.RespectufullyPolitis.

==Serbian Succession Boxes==AhhHello, these ones I do understandMatushka - thank you for the extra links, concerning St. [[Donald of Ogilvy]] and his holy Nine Maidens! Main problem: there are two Serbian dioceses in Australia-New ZealandSeeing as how you have found much about the Nine Maidens, and H.G. Nikanor's box had I feel it is only proper to reflect do an article about them, now that he succeeded two bishopsyou have pointed me in the right direction. Thank you again!
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:PistevoMishakaz|<font color="red">Pι</font>Mishakaz]][[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)

Thanks for your note. This is from an 18th cent. book by St. Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain [http://www.catholic-forum.com/Saints/saintn63.htm] entitled '''Lives of the Saints for the Whole Year''', which I have an electronic copy of (the book is not fully available online from GOARCH). If you think this is still a problem, I would be happy to have this entry deleted and stop importing further entries from St. Nicodemus' booklittle help about suggested pages. --[[User:ArbibleEphilei|ArbibleEphilei]] 0402:3207, August 19July 3, 2006 2008 (CDTUTC)
==Contributed articlesActive appeal ==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 itThere'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 stylecurrently an active appeal over at [[OrthodoxWiki talk:Administrators]]. To me If as an admin, it just seems you would like the talk pages would be a better place for opinion stands on debatable issuesto participate, if we ever have enough people please feel free to start really using themdo so.

Dear MagdaI noticed in the [[sex]] article in your rewrite in March 2008 some quotes from SJC made there way in that I'm having trouble verifying.

There's been a request to use some of your edited content on Wikipedia.
