== Brevity and "Name" sections ==
 
  
Hello!  Thanks for all the contributions you've recently been making.  I have a concern about the "Name" sections you've been adding to various saints' articles -- they're often being put right at the beginning, before the "Life" sections, which indicates that the meaning of the saint's name is of more encyclopedic importance than his life.  Additionally, they're often moderately extensive sections, a paragraph or more.
 
  
I think if you'll take a look at encyclopedias such as the ''Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church'' or the ''Blackwell Dictionary of Eastern Christianity'', or any other encyclopedia, you'll find that etymology usually only takes up perhaps a few words in parentheses after the initial name of the entry, e.g., '''''Stephen the Protomartyr''' (Gk. ''stephanos'', "crown")'''''.

== Minor edits ==
  
== Helpful links ==
+
I've noticed you've recently made a huge number of edits all marked as "minor."  Please remember that "minor" edits are things like fixing spelling, minor formatting issues, fixing links, etc. Adding content is almost never minor. This may seem pedantic, but it's actually pretty important, since many folks filter what they see in edit histories so that they don't see minor edits.

[[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 23:13, May 13, 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether you're aware that there's a [[Template:Inprogress]]
 
  
You could put that on the articles you are <u>actively</u> developing, which would (1) let others know that you're working on it, and (2) when you click the "What links here" link on the lower left menu, you can more easily keep track of articles you are working onFor more information on how it should be used, check out the [[Template talk:Inprogress|talk page]].  
+
::: '''THANK YOU.''' There's some gratitude for you.
  
Oh, and another thing: I find it helpful to separate "Sources" from which one gets paraphrased information, "References" or "Notes" which cite specific quotations within an article, and "External links" which allow readers to get even more information which may not be included.  The term "External sources" confuses me a little, since all sources have to be external. 
+
::: (Now, since we're writing an encyclopedia, can we please recommence the nit-picking?)  &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.

: The key word here is, of course, ''actively''.  Generally, you should only use [[Template:Inprogress]] on no more than one or two articles at a time that you're in the process of changing significantly. The idea of the template is to mark an article you're working on '''right now''' so that major edit conflicts don't occur when multiple editors try to work on an article simultaneously.

Hi again, I replied to your response on my talkpage; I suggest we both use the talkpage for the article itself to make it easier from now on. Cheers, [[User:Angellight 888|Angellight 888]] 00:04, May 26, 2009 (UTC)

:Vassiliki I revised the proposed outline for the eras; please have a look on the discussion page of the article. You were absolutely correct, the titles for the eras should reflect the history of the Church as much as possible. I think I have done this successfully for the eras up to 1485 AD - (have a look). After that time it is difficult to place a name on any period of British history as it relates to the Church, so we will have to go with the secular headings I think. Again, for the 20th century, if you can determine when each of the dioceses for the various Orthodox jurisdictions were established, we could create a sub-category with those dates. I think for now, we are good to go with the suggested outline. :) [[User:Angellight 888|Angellight 888]] 03:53, May 26, 2009 (UTC)
 +
==About Dates==
 +
I'm using the '''new calendar dates'''.
 +
This is a problem. In the site i gived to you, http://www.holytrinityorthodox.com/calendar/index.php?year=2009&today=8&month=2&trp=0 , ex: Sunday, February 8, 2009 / January 26, 2009 (Church Calendar). January 26, 2009  is the now calendar date. The second date is good. No problem, I'm nervious too, :) [[User:Maraamu|Maraamu]] 12:08, May 28, 2009 (UTC). Same thing with http://www.holytrinityorthodox.com/calendar/index.php?year=2009&today=7&month=1&trp=0 . Wednesday, January 7, 2009 / December 25, 2008 (Church Calendar). Is mention the Nativity feast and the 25 dec is the new date. 7 jan is the old date.
 +
:BTW. Take it easy. This lists are not an easy work. There are more then 4000 names (in all centuries) out there. We should take this step by step and with a lot of calm, peacefully and love for saints. [[User:Maraamu|Maraamu]]
  
I find it helpful to review it every so often, and find myself going to the [[Saint commemorations]] page quite a bit. 
+
::I do not know why you have the impresion that I am not taking it easy? Especially when I have already said that putting this together requires a lot of work? especially since its a project i started ...??????? You bruise my ego :)  [[User:Ixthis888|Vasiliki]] 23:03, May 28, 2009 (UTC)
  
Also, when you are using an article as a source, please be clear about what you are quoting and what you are paraphrasing.   
+
== Help Needed ..(tables) ==
  
Direct quotations need to be clearly marked with quotation marks; when whole paragraphs are quoted, they should be indented. 
+
Hi Vasiliki,  
  
In terms of getting information about a saint, what I usually do is check my three main sources of saints' lives:
+
How you doing?
(OCA, GOARCH, and the ''Prologue of Ohrid'', all [[User:Magda#External|linked from my page]]),
+
I gave it a try:
  
and, since so many saints are already included in our calendar pages, I often find a commemoration by searching OrthodoxWiki itself (often using google, adding "site:orthodoxwiki.org"); although the OCA pages are also good at that.

I just go to Google and search for each, and look at the words on the top right:

:Results 1 - 10 of about [such-a-number] for [this search].
 
 
 
Then I do searches for whatever I want to compare, and look at the "such-a-number"s to see which is more prevalent.  That's not to say that it's "correct," or more prevalent everywhere, just a general guide.  If one search gives you a million, and another gives you ten, then you get a good idea of which one is more common.  If one search gives you 1,940 and another gives you 1,950, it's more difficult.

(Future Note, the issue was an option under 'My Preferences' was selected that was causing the problem.)
 
 
 
== Policies, etc. ==
 
 
 
A few points in response to your comment:
 
 
 
*OrthodoxWiki policies are not in any sense "mine."  I did happen to write the original version of many of them, but I don't have the authority to rule them as the consensus of the administration.
 
*I added [[Template:Policy]] to the OrthodoxWiki FAQ, because it should have been there a long time ago.  I often will take a look at policy pages in the midst of discussions which involve them, mainly to make sure that I understand and follow them myself!  They sometimes do need a bit of correction.  This has nothing to do with you, except in an indirect manner.  I have never edited policy to "muscle" you or anyone else, though sometimes the administration has updated policies to reflect a problem that has occurred recently.  I don't think any of them involved you.
 
*What you ''most'' often see me updating after discussions with you (at least lately) has been [[User:ASDamick/Wiki-philosophy|my personal opinions]] about various matters on the wiki.  They have no official status and are only my personal opinions.  People are free to ignore them or follow them at will.  No one is bound by anything I write there.
 
*I agree with you that OrthodoxWiki should represent the official positions of ecclesiastical authorities where relevant.  However, representation of them is never going to be exclusive or normative.  They are simply going to be reported, like everything else.  OrthodoxWiki by its very nature cannot ever be an official voice for any ecclesiastical authority.  What happens when they argue amongst themselves (which they often do)?  What happens when one of them is simply wrong (e.g., heretical)?  Anyway, most of these bodies have their own websites to announce their own positions on various things.  We're not going to do it for them.
 
*There is no attempt on the part of the administration or the OrthodoxWiki community in general to produce a bias in favor of Westerners or Englishmen.  There is a bias (if one can call it that!) toward the English language!  That's because this is the English-language OrthodoxWiki.  There are '''nine other language editions of OrthodoxWiki''' (including Greek) which also are "biased" in favor of their own languages.  English is what we use here, because this encyclopedia is written in English.  It is for readers of English.  To attempt to make some other language dominate here would not only be profoundly useless, but outright silly.  It would be a contradiction in terms.
 
*Please forgive me, but I think a lot of your frustrations with the wiki come from a misunderstanding of the nature and process of producing an encyclopedia.  This is not just a group-edited website.  It is an encyclopedia, which involves lengthy discussions over what you may consider minutiae, such as terminology.  It involves a genuine commitment to neutrality within certain clear limits.
 
*I honestly am not sure what it is you expect from me and the rest of the OrthodoxWiki community.  Your comments often make no sense to me at all.  This is not to be insulting to you, but I really just don't understand how you can want to edit on OrthodoxWiki and yet remain so very frustrated by its most basic norms and assumptions.  You are of course free to mount a campaign to change the wiki, but I have to say that I don't think it's likely to be successful.
 
*I hope that you will continue to contribute on OrthodoxWiki, and I also hope that your frustrations can be resolved.

Please remember that "minor" edits are things like fixing spelling, minor formatting issues, fixing links, etc. Adding content is almost never minor. This may seem pedantic, but it's actually pretty important, since many folks filter what they see in edit histories so that they don't see minor edits.

Hi again, I replied to your response on my talkpage; I suggest we both use the talkpage for the article itself to make it easier from now on. Cheers, Angellight 888 00:04, May 26, 2009 (UTC)

Vassiliki I revised the proposed outline for the eras; please have a look on the discussion page of the article. You were absolutely correct, the titles for the eras should reflect the history of the Church as much as possible. I think I have done this successfully for the eras up to 1485 AD - (have a look). After that time it is difficult to place a name on any period of British history as it relates to the Church, so we will have to go with the secular headings I think. Again, for the 20th century, if you can determine when each of the dioceses for the various Orthodox jurisdictions were established, we could create a sub-category with those dates. I think for now, we are good to go with the suggested outline. :) Angellight 888 03:53, May 26, 2009 (UTC)

About Dates

I'm using the new calendar dates. This is a problem. In the site i gived to you, http://www.holytrinityorthodox.com/calendar/index.php?year=2009&today=8&month=2&trp=0 , ex: Sunday, February 8, 2009 / January 26, 2009 (Church Calendar). January 26, 2009 is the now calendar date. The second date is good. No problem, I'm nervious too, :) Maraamu 12:08, May 28, 2009 (UTC). Same thing with http://www.holytrinityorthodox.com/calendar/index.php?year=2009&today=7&month=1&trp=0 . Wednesday, January 7, 2009 / December 25, 2008 (Church Calendar). Is mention the Nativity feast and the 25 dec is the new date. 7 jan is the old date.

BTW. Take it easy. This lists are not an easy work. There are more then 4000 names (in all centuries) out there. We should take this step by step and with a lot of calm, peacefully and love for saints. Maraamu
I do not know why you have the impresion that I am not taking it easy? Especially when I have already said that putting this together requires a lot of work? especially since its a project i started ...??????? You bruise my ego :) Vasiliki 23:03, May 28, 2009 (UTC)
