The Style Manual itself could probably do with some sprucing up. That aside, though, at least at some point in my career on OrthodoxWiki, I started following the Wikipedia style WRT the "External links" section, which is to capitalize only the first word. I prefer to keep capitalization somewhat at a minimum, especially to stave off what I sometimes see in Orthodox writing in English, in which it seems that nearly every word gets capitalized at times.

Perhaps it's worth adding some notes about headers into the Style Manual. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 06:25, March 13, 2006 (CST)

Orthodoxy in America image

I like it! I made the switch.

FWIW, though, given the style of the cross (which is a wall cross, not a pectoral—I have one at home), one would think the original image might represent not the Byzantine Empire come to America, but rather an American Tsardom.  :) —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 06:00, March 14, 2006 (CST)


Thanks for the welcome. As you might have guessed, I still spend more of my editing time at Wikipedia, but I wish you well. Rdr. Theophan 16:44, April 5, 2006 (CDT)

St. T's

I'll be around on Monday. I look like my photos.  :) As for floorspace, I don't think we can. Sorry.  :/ —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 14:38, May 27, 2006 (CDT)

Byzantine response to OCA autocephaly

Yeah, I found it a bit suspect, too, but it is one of the points made in the response, as found in the 1972 book referenced in the article. I included it because that's what's in there. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 16:52, August 14, 2006 (CDT)

I've added in a specific page reference. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 14:20, August 15, 2006 (CDT)
