Emperors and Patriarchs
Helleica, just wanted to say that your plan sounds great. It would definitely be helpful to beef up the historical sections of the site. I'll try to leave comments on the articles you're editing to help you get the hang of the process and style. We're glad to have you onboard. — FrJohn (talk)
In reality, there wasn't much more you could have done - these sysopowers make life a lot easier (with blocking, IP blocks and rollbacks). Actually, you did especially well with the blank image upload - I wouldn't have thought of that! — edited by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 21:55, September 9, 2006 (CDT)

Greek language OrthodoxWiki?
From some of your edits, I am guessing that you're a Hellenophone. Any chance you'd be interested in a Greek language OrthodoxWiki? (I couldn't help, since I only have rudimentary knowledge of Greek.) No doubt FrJohn could start it for you. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 12:27, November 29, 2006 (PST)
- I would indeed, but sadly my level of Greek is likely little better than yours. I am currently in the process of expanding my comprehension, but at the moment it would not be sufficient for such an undertaking. What I've been trying to do here is take the Greek Language Wikipedia and rin it through Altavista's Babelfish webpage translator to provide a very basic and broken translation, then try to reassemble it into coherent English. Aided by my trusty Oxford Greek-English dictionary (and other assorted language texts), my father (who is fluent but not literate), my ongoing Greek lessons, and what I know of Byzantine history (for historical place names/Metropolises), I am able to extract enough information from the Greek articles to create understandable English ones. However, in the future, as my mastery of the language grows I would gladly like to help establish the Greek language OrthoWiki. Hellenica 13:03, November 30, 2006 (PST)
