Names of Bishops in the Church

Hi Magda, I really appreciate what you do 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? -- 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

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 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.

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! Gabriela 19:01, March 22, 2008 (PDT)

French links

Thanks for filling in all the French links, Magda! — FrJohn (talk) 06:38, April 10, 2008 (UTC)

I also wanted to give credit to Magda on the External Links; I have noticed her over last fortnight adding and adding links and its a very difficult task and I have to say she is doing a really timely and thorough job! Vasiliki 23:34, April 16, 2008 (UTC)

Ekatontapyliani versus Ekatontapiliani

New England Diocese

Thanks, Magda, for catching the century 'date'. Also, you came up with the date for Abp Dmitiri that I've been trying to find for some time. Now the dates in his article need correcting!! Wsk 23:17, April 30, 2008 (UTC)

Issues Logging In

Hi, I am having issues logging in and editing ...I only manage 30 seconds every day. i will try to fix up Athos issues when this account works properly ... I hope this message saves. Please understand my editing has been almost but stopped in the last week. Vasiliki 03:40, May 30, 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry you're having trouble logging in and editing. I'm not sure what specific problems you're having, so I don't know how to help. —magda (talk) 13:42, May 30, 2008 (UTC)


Done. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 17:07, June 2, 2008 (UTC)


"Undo" undoes.  :) Experiment!

You can delete particular edits by clicking on "show/hide" in an article's history. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 22:06, June 11, 2008 (UTC)

I can't seem to restore that article, either. I'm gonna axe it, since it doesn't really belong here, anyhow. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 00:19, June 12, 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I was hoping to recruit you into OrthodoxSource - are you interested in coming in and discussing over there? -- Vasiliki

Hi, thanks for referring Template:OSource, can you explain for me .... should I be using this template to mark articles in OW that should be migrated into OSource? Vasiliki 23:05, June 23, 2008 (UTC)

External links ---

Hi, I have modified three articles (on purpose) on a temporary basis, only so that I can demonstrate an idea ... I wanted to point out that I will revert the articles back once I have had a response I suppose from at least your or one of the Fathers or some of the other admins as to what you think ... the three "pilot" articles are:

Athanasius of Alexandria
Alexander Schmemann
John of Damascus

I am definately keen to get a discussion going linking Owiki and Osource ... I am having a lot of fun doing the programming in Osource but I dont want to move forward until some people start putting in some feedback. Vasiliki 00:39, June 24, 2008 (UTC)

St. Donald

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!


Leo VI

You're right. I've reverted. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 16:59, July 1, 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for the little help about suggested pages. --Ephilei 02:07, July 3, 2008 (UTC)

Can I copy a Wikipedia article over here?


I've been working on Orthodox-related articles over at Wikipedia. For example, I've been working on the East-West Schism article. There is no such article here. Can I just copy the text from Wikipedia over here wholesale? What are the relevant copyright rules?

Quotes from St. John Chrisostom

Hi Magda,

I 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. Could you look at my comment in the discussion and see if you have an answer? I'd greatly appreciate the help, thanks!

Quick changes!

Hi Magda! I put up an article today, and was coming back to add categories, and I noticed that you had already done it! Wow! Good to see you around - hope that things are well with you!  :) Katjuscha 20:52, March 1, 2016 (PST)
