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

The list on this page has mainly been used for categories, and both of those links are already connected with Category:Links. What do the rest of y'all think? —[[User:ASDamick|—Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!)]] 08:17, 16 Jun 2005 (EDT)
Sounds good. Sorry if I seem a little zealous (careless?). I would think that things like this would be of interest to "seekers" and might warrant a prominent placement. --Joe Rodgers 10:55, 16 Jun 2005 (EDT)
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. —[[User:ASDamick|—Fr.

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. I guess part of my original intent was to address newcomers who come to our home page and are immediately looking for tangible ways to learn more about Orthodoxy. I know that one way I have learned a lot was through online media and publications, although those are external sources from this Wiki. Maybe I should start moving this over to Suggestions --Joe Rodgers 12:46, 28 Jun 2005 (EDT)
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|—Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!)]] 13:00, 28 Jun 2005 (EDT)


ISTM that having no Table of Contents on the Main Page is a good idea. What do you think? —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 17:33, 26 October 2005 (CDT)

I put __NOTOC__ 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|—magda (talk)]] 20:51, 26 October 2005 (CDT)


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. J23 00:11, 31 October 2005 (CST)

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. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 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. -- oea 00:06, 3 November 2005 (CST)

Agreed! Fr. John
Yes, please do so. I don't really have the time right now to continue to maintain this as I have. I've been hoping that others would join in. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 15:03, 3 November 2005 (CST)


We can get the Old Calendar saints on the main page also. The free script is at

You're busted for authorial promotion Aleks!! Not sure how to integrate the script onto an OrthodoxWiki page -- maybe through an extension? If you can figure it out, let me know. Fr. John


No pink. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 22:28, November 23, 2005 (CST)

Ok, ok! Maybe beige? Something warm. Fr. John

P.S. I thought you were going to say that. Fr. John
