Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!
Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Please note that OrthodoxWiki is always in development, so not everything works quite right yet. You can help, though!
OrthodoxWiki is a community-edited encyclopedia of Orthodox Christianity. Articles are created and edited by our members, and so everything that we do here is subject to review and revision. The result is a true consensus product, with every interested editor contributing his own knowledge and writing skills. As such, when you feel that criticism of an article is warranted, we encourage you to join in and fix it! Don't worry about breaking anything or doing something wrong—the other editors here are happy to jump in and help you learn.

Hey Chris, glad to see you here. I noticed Gabriela deleted your stub on Kollyvades and I wanted to give you an explanatory note . All this stuff is explained in the "welcome"documents, but that isn't always the most accessible format for people. Anyway, we're hesitant to create articles without content because it looks bad when people are searching for something and find the article, but there's nothing there. If this happens a lot, they might begin to think that OrthodoxWiki is a whole lot of nothing! We think it's better to build slowly, creating articles with some good content - that are actually useful to people - than to expand too quickly and too "thinly." Hope that helps, and welcome again. — FrJohn (talk)
Your deleted image(s)
If you feel that this deletion was in error, you may upload the image again, giving it the appropriate tag indicating that the image is legal for OrthodoxWiki to use.
To check which images may have been deleted, take a look at your upload log and look for red links.
I've noticed you've been adding a lot to the Timeline of Church History article lately. Thank you! My one concern is that many of the entries amount to whole paragraphs. The idea is for entries to be brief (rather like newspaper headlines) and include links to the main articles.
Would you mind summarizing your recent additions in this way? I'd hate for content to be lost, though, so perhaps you might want to move that extra material into various main articles.
- Turkey routinely does small things to annoy the EP, but few are of genuine historical significance. Inclusion in the Timeline article ought to be from the point of view of what is likely to make the history books 100 years from now. I do agree that the ongoing persecution could be documented, but perhaps this might be better covered in an article of its own. (Perhaps Turkey and the Ecumenical Patriarchate?)
- The purpose of the Timeline articles is simply to give a shorthand overview, like a series of newspaper headlines, not to include all the information on a given topic. If you find yourself making a single event's entry several lines long, in most cases it should probably be shortened and then a new OrthodoxWiki article created which can be linked to from the Timeline.
Hi, I created an article on this amazing icon for your information and feel free to contribute any non-copyrighted pictures you might have - LOL! -- Vasiliki 22:52, February 21, 2008 (PST)
Creation of Bio articles
Hi, I noticed that you sometimes create stand alone articles on Metropolitans or Bishops. I just wanted to remind you (if you can of course) remember to update other pages which might need this information. For example, Kyprianos of Cyprus I added a link on the Church of Cyprus page because Kyprianos was part of an existing list of Metropolitans for the church of cyprus! :-) I have also been adding See also links within the bio's relating a link back to the Church see that each priest/bishop etc belongs to. You never told me if you liked the Panagia of Tinos article? Vasiliki 16:56, April 3, 2008 (PDT)
- Geia Sou Vasiliki!!! :):) Apologies I did not get a chance to reply sooner. Thanks for the reminder, will do. I love the article on Panagia of Tinos, thanks so much for contributing it! Eimaste eulogimenoi pou se exomai edo!! :) Also very impressed by your industry in all the other important articles you have started doing! I will see if I have any info to add to any of them. Na eisai Kala!! Big cheers,:) Chris. Angellight 888 02:25, April 8, 2008 (UTC)
Howdy! You may have noticed that when you include your signature in Talk pages that all text following it is shrunk and supertitled. You need to include a </sup> at the end of it! :) —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 06:05, January 22, 2008 (PST)
WOW! Thanks for all those amazing additions to the article... you really have helped give it justice! So much so its already had 101 hits and its been on the OW for only 24 hours! This is an example of when I wreckon we all pull in information as a team to give an article some good ooomph! Vasiliki 03:39, April 24, 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, I hope that your experience of easter was exactly that it was meant to be - Christ Risen in our hearts, so that we can truthfully say, truly indeed He is Risen! Vasiliki 22:50, April 27, 2008 (UTC)
Concerning your question to Father Andrew about the African Orthodox Church you might read the article Orthodoxy in Sub-Saharan Africa. It provides an over of these early times. Wsk 00:43, July 5, 2008 (UTC)
Romanity versus Ecumenism
I would be interested to find out your thoughts on the following e-book:
Do you believe that there IS a political difference between "Romanity" and "Ecumenism", as relevant to today's Orthodox politics? I am interested in what you think, you can reply on firstname.lastname@example.org instead of this (if you did have an interest in the topic, I wouldnt be offended if you didnt reply) Vasiliki 04:42, November 5, 2008 (UTC)
