== [[:Category:Orthodoxy in Japan]] ==
Just so you know, when you add the '''<nowiki>{{orthodoxyinjapan}}</nowiki>''' template to an article, [[:Category:Orthodoxy in Japan]] automatically gets added, so there's no need to include it separately. {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 09:57, January 5, 2006 (CST)

:Thank you for your detailed and kind response ... I didnt realise he had such influence on the Royal family and was also opposed by two hierarchs ... and also the point u present about good and bad makes sence ... I should jump my gun but its always good to ask I suppose becuase it teaches you another point of view - Thanks! If i come across something juicy about him ...I am certain that I will add it in. [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 14:45, March 25, 2008 (PDT)
:@Vasiliki I believe you doesn't have all the information. "..someone as satanic and evil as he" is just a piece of secular anti-Russian and ANTICHRISTIANIC propaganda, based on dirty political purposes and not on facts. I can search for some materials to show you (I've read about Rasputin holiness many times in Church sources but don't keep exactly references in memory) - surely if you please.
== ["Category: St. Vladimir's Seminary"] ==
Hi, hope you dont mind ... I changed the category a little so as to make it a sub-Category of [[:Category:Graduates]] which in turn is a Sub-category of [[:Category:Theology]]. This gives room to add "graduates" from other "Seminaries" :-) What you think? -- [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 01:30, June 18, 2008 (UTC)
: [[User:Wsk|Wsk]]'s category parallels an existing set of categories (e.g., [[:Category:Theological School of Halki Graduates]]), which are all subsets of [[:Category:People]] and [[:Category:Seminaries]]. (This is a case of "Check existing structures first, please!") SVS itself doesn't have any other articles about it, so it really doesn't need a category all its own. Having one for its graduates works fine, though, just as it does for Halki. That is, why have two layers of categories when there only needs to be one? I've reverted these changes. &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.

== starting categories ==
Just putting the category link in the article kind of starts the category, but the wiki will still complain the category does not exist. Just edit the category's empty page as if it were an article, and it will then exist. I sometimes add a description, but most of the time I just add a category link on the category page making it a sub category to another category. That's it. Hope that helps, - [[User:Andrew|Andy]] 19:29, July 24, 2008 (UTC)

I am quite far from being any kind of expert - I'm pretty well just going to the patriarchal website at this point. I do have a level of interest, though, and this is something I'd like to cultivate. &mdash; by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="green">Pιs</font><font color="gold">τévο</font>]] <sup>''[[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]'' ''[[User talk:Pistevo/dev/null|<font color="red">complaints</font>]]''</sup> at 15:05, August 28, 2008 (UTC)
== a book review ==
Wsk, I was cleaning up a book review at the same time you were deleting it. [[Sacred light: Following the paschal journey]], Should I delete it? There are other book reviews here. - [[User:Andrew|Andy]] 12:19, September 16, 2008 (UTC)
:I suppose it is a fine line between ''book review'' and ''ad for a book''. - [[User:Andrew|Andy]] 19:19, September 16, 2008 (UTC)
== Thank U for the work you do ==
I am not the site owner but I am sure that if awards could be given to the most hard-woring Users on Orthodoxwiki there would be three to give out: you, Wsk and ASDamick! I wanted to pause at this point in my OrthodoxWiki career and acknowledge the efforts of those people who really do put a lot of time and effort into keeping OW alive and say Thank you for the work and time you put into making the articles rewarding!!!

== Military Martyrs ==
The following list:
lists military martyrs. If you had time, perhaps you could incorporate information from that site into our equivalent OrthodoxWiki articles? or a link to that site? Please note that the pages for each martyr are at varying stages of construction. [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 23:52, May 25, 2009 (UTC)
== Google map ==
Whether do you know how to justify google map image on the right side of a page (see [[Mochalny]] island). Regards, [[User:Ruar-from-T|Ruar-from-T]]
== Deleting absurd redirects ==
Delete please redirects created after spamming renaming: [[]], [[]].
==Bishops of Japan==
Thanks. Grouping bishops by their “see” (city) seemed easy, I would just look at the succession boxes and add categories. But it turned out some bishops were titled by country, and some had titular titles. Also, as you mentioned, there were already categories such as “Metropolitans of Japan”. There is “Metropolitans of Poland” overlapping with “Bishops of Warsaw”, “Metropolitans of the Czech Lands and Slovakia” overlapping with “Bishops of Prague”. There is also “Patriarchs of Moscow” overlapping with “Bishops of Kiev”.
I guess it needs cleaning up. As for Japan, “Metropolitans of …” is a good category grouping, as long as the category header explains that they my not all be Metropolitans if so. Would you go with "Metropolitans of Tokyo" or "Japan"? - [[User:Andrew|Andy]] 13:05, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
== Church house ==
Dear Wsk! Thank you for your edits in the article [[Anatoly Chistousov]]. However I'm afraid that you didn't understand the meaning of certain words. When I wrote "church house" I meant not the church, not the building of the temple, but a house, which stands on the parish land, belongs to the parish, and which is used (in usual time) for household needs . I used combination of words "church house" as literal translation for russian "церковный дом (''tserkovny dom'')", as I just don't know how is right to translate it in english (may be as ''parish house''?). --[[User:Stone18|Stone18]] 15:29, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
I've tought and decided to write "parish home". It seems to me that a home, which was built to be used in usual time as (for random example) a kitchen for paish members and similar is not equivalent of [[Domus Ecclesia]] --[[User:Stone18|Stone18]] 20:41, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
== Images and Category Question ==
Hi Wsk! I was wondering if I could get your thoughts on a couple of things :)
First, it appears that the uploading of images is currently broken, or disabled. See here, the [ Gallery of New Image Files]; some of your own uploads are also not showing the image there. I had left a note at the OrthodoxWiki Trapeza [[OrthodoxWiki:Trapeza#Thumbnails_Error|here]] regarding this error some time ago, but it has gone unanswered and the problem is not resolved. If I am missing something (or if it is my computer alone perhaps), apologies in advance, however I thought I would ask at least one person about the images / thumbnails error. Any ideas? Is it broken or disabled, and how to proceed loading pictures for future articles if so ? Who is in charge of correcting this programming error?
Second, I would appreciate your opinion on the naming of a new category I would like to create, to group all of the Western Saints of the Orthodox Church. I also raised this on the Trapeza, here: [[OrthodoxWiki:Trapeza#Proposed_Category_re:Saints|Proposed Category re:Saints]] with no feedback as of yet. I am in favor of following the pattern used on ROCOR's Orthodox England website, where they name these saints: ''“Latin Saints of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Rome”.'' Since OW is stated to be from the Orthodox perspective, I think it is approriate we use this terminology to exactly define these saints by time and place. In addition, they deserve a category of their own. Any thoughts?
Many thanks, and congratulations for all your dedicated hard work sir. Cheers, :) Chris. [[User:Angellight 888|Angellight 888]] 21:47, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
==Jacob of Sarug==
Hi Wsk,
I was wondering if perhaps you can read Russian? There is a [ Russian Orthodox Encyclopedia], which had a comprehensive looking article on [[Jacob of Serugh]], here: '''[ Иаков Саругский].'''<br>
If perhaps you can translate this, and add the relevant info to our own biographical entry on Jacob of Sarug that would be great. I thought I would at least ask. If not, would you know of anyone else who can translate Russian, and might be interested in this task? Cheers, [[User:Angellight 888|Angellight 888]] 00:48, February 19, 2011 (UTC)
== Help at uploading a file ==
I'd like to upload this file from Wikipedia for the [[Holy Trinity Church (Pyongyang)|new article]], but uploading failed for unknown reason. Ask to help. --[[User:Stone18|Stone18]] 11:29, April 3, 2012 (HST)
You probably haven't understood me. i'm not going to copy full page [], i want to upload only the picture from it, i.e. to OwikiCommons, but the uploading is failed, probably is it temporary bugs of the OWiki server? Then I shall try later --[[User:Stone18|Stone18]] 07:08, April 4, 2012 (HST)
Hi Wsk, I'm looking for responses for my proposal (to delete the parish directory pages for Australia) on - your thoughts? &mdash; by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="green">Pιs</font><font color="gold">τévο</font>]] <sup>''[[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]'' ''[[User talk:Pistevo/dev/null|<font color="red">complaints</font>]]''</sup> at 19:14, January 31, 2013 (HST)
