Do we want to have the title linking to (a standardized) something?

For instance, the mythical bishop of little-new-town probably won't have a list of other bishops to link to, in which case it might be better to link to the jurisdictional article; however, I personally like the idea of linking to a list article, because then there can be gaps in the chronology, but one can see who the other hierarchs of that bishopric were and are. I have spent a good deal of time trying to find the "OCA Bishop of Chicago and the Midwest" between the years of 1988 (Boris Geeza finished) and 1993 (Job Osacky started), but cannot find anything online. Any thoughts? —magda (talk) 13:05, November 10, 2005 (CST)

This sounds good to me! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 18:33, November 13, 2005 (CST)

Auxiliary bishops?

Should there be some distinction between diocesan bishops and Auxiliary bishops? And if so, should we also name the diocesan bishop that the auxiliary bishop is working with? (sometimes, the box makes it appear that there is a diocese of Brooklyn or such) --Andrew 14:46, January 9, 2006 (CST)

The succession box denotes title, not diocese. It would probably get endlessly complicated to make the necessary distinctions between when a particular title is attached to a diocese and when it is not. Whether a particular bishop is an auxiliary or not is usually noted in the article about him. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 15:21, January 9, 2006 (CST)
