I started these Subcategories to help crosscheck the succession boxes that are in our bishop articles. First I thought that I could modify the Succession box template but its usage of the {{title}} was inconsistent, sometimes contained links. - Andy 20:31, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Subcategories proposed

Since there are so many articles on so many bishops, and the number will grow over time, for greater organizational purposes I propose that we follow the convention used over at Wikipedia, where they have sub-categories for: "Category:Eastern Orthodox bishops by period." Thus, for example, they have sub-categories for bishops by century:

Perhaps most of our entries will fall under either the 19th, 20th or 21st centuries, so may just need these 3 subcategories to begin; also, the name of the category here on OW would be shortened to something like "19th-century bishops‎". Thought I would raise the idea at any rate. Would be willing to go back and add the categories to existing articles. Cheers, Angellight 888 11:56, February 6, 2012 (HST)
