List based on location

This article has been reverted - part of the basis of these list articles is that they are sorted geographically. People wanting specific jurisdictions can easily look at the various jurisdicitonal websites. — by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 04:08, February 19, 2008 (PST)

No disrespect intended but I disagree with the fact that you have reverted it back. It is not user friendly to have one big 'dump' of churches. Yesterday, I was trying to find the Bentleigh Church of Raphael, Nicholas and Irene and couldnt find it on your list ... I was getting dizzy looking at the screen ... PS. You have this church listed in the wrong spot ...I live next door to that church and I can guarantee you, it is not in the country ...its within Melbourne. PSS. You have also removed a few links that I added. -- Vasiliki 13:45, February 19, 2008 (PST)
I'm going to agree with both of you: one big lump of a list isn't helpful, but a geographic separation would be helpful. What's the best way to geographically group the parishes of Victoria? In the States, it's easy enough to go by city, or city-and-smaller-nearby-town, but Victoria seems to have a different layout altogether, with most being in Melbourne itself. In NSW there's a division by city, and then by postal code where necessary. —magda (talk) 15:18, February 19, 2008 (PST)
Pistevo did the same thing when he reverted the list of parishes in NSW. When he reverted to the old classification system, he also reverted all the new links, updates, and spelling corrections, which I had added. They have never been restored. Plus in Sydney, the postcode system is not strictly geographical. Especially when he put Rooty Hill out in the country. Postcodes might be strictly geographical in Brisbane, but they are not in Sydney. chrisg 20 Feb 2008 07:56 (AWST)
Magda ... listing parishes geographically is a little difficult but we have do have geographical zones for Melbourne. I can review tonight and update tomorrow if it helps Pistevo since I live in Melbourne and am familiar with all of the churches and their locations. PS, we also have the same issue in Melbourne as per Sydeny our Postcodes do not reflect geographical locations accurately. I would still think that listing within the context of each specific church makes more sence ... Australia is unique in that not all Parishes belong to the same jurisdiction ... Just my thoughts. Also, on a more general note, when you guys revert, is there a way of informing us before you do it so we can not lose links and stuff that we spend time updating. -- Vasiliki 16:28, February 19, 2008 (PST)
Alas, if only it were true that Australia were "unique in that not all Parishes belong to the same jurisdiction"! This problem actually exists in most of the world—all of North America, South America, Western Europe, Oceania, and most of Asia. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 16:55, February 19, 2008 (PST)
OK, true ...but this is not helping to move forward on the dilemma! :-) I still like a top-down approach only cause I am an engineer and we have top-down logic thinking ...for my thinking, I think it makes sence to file information > Church Group (ie Antioch, Greek etc) > Geographical > Alphanumerical. The current method on this page is a long list ...I like the innitiative as it is but I changed it yesterday to make it look simpler. Hence today's discussion. -- Vasiliki 17:02, February 19, 2008 (PST)
