May I suggest adding [[Orthodox Media]] and [[Magazines_and_Publications]] somewhere on the main page. Possibly under Other on the list to the right? --[[User:Joe Rodgers|Joe Rodgers]] 01:39, 16 Jun 2005 (EDT)

:: Perhaps we should start a series, similar to the [[Orthodoxy in America]], that has to do with an [[Introduction to Orthodox_Christianity]] for "seekers" or newcomers.

: That was actually the idea of the [[Introduction to Orthodox Christianity]] article, that it would serve as an overview with component articles explaining fundamental concepts and practices.  I think it would be great to develop a template for it, as well.  —[[User:ASDamick|{{User:ASDamick/sig}}]] 13:00, 28 Jun 2005 (EDT)

:I put '''<nowiki>__NOTOC__</nowiki>''' in, but when I tried to check it, it looked like I broke the wiki.  I reverted, but that didn't help anything, so I figured it was still in "update" status.  In other words, I agree with you. [[User:Magda|{{User:Magda/sig}}]] 20:51, 26 October 2005 (CDT)

==Dissapointment==
+
This wiki seems to have a TON of stuff on church history, yet hardly has anything on the foundations of the faith ([[Jesus Christ]], [[Trinity]]).  Not only is there very little on the Jesus Christ article, there are no other articles relating to him (resurrection, ascension, life and ministry, etc...).  I fear this site is getting too caught up in history, and I hope you can build solid foundations before you become more broad and general.  Just my two cents.

: Part of it is, I think, that our current contributors feel less qualified to work on such articles and so they are being approached with much more caution.  Feel free to assist in those areas.  {{User:ASDamick/sig}} 05:48, 31 October 2005 (CST)

==Featured Article==

If I may ask of the featured article to be changed (it has been a little while), I also proffer suggestions: [[Afterfeast]], [[Autocephaly]], [[Basil the Great]].  No vested interest - pretty much anything will do, just to get it cycling again. -- [[User:Pistevo|oea]] 00:06, 3 November 2005 (CST)

How to (would you) add Bulgarian saints on front page?

I think there's definitely some merit in the idea. My main concern is that I don't want to promise content by having it prominent and then not deliver, so to speak. Many visitors explore a site once and assume what they see there is all there will ever be. Perhaps the cure for this problem is to develop articles about various Orthodox media so that they can be included in categories. &mdash
