G.O. N.Z.

Nope. Haven't heard anything about it. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 20:07, June 6, 2006 (CDT)

I got the email now. (My email was down yesterday.) It doesn't make much sense to me, though. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 07:47, June 7, 2006 (CDT)

Serbian Bishops in Australia

I'm not quite sure what needs to be changed in these succession boxes. Would you mind?

Yes, I am almost positive that the history books were written before he became Orthodox. I believe the last book was published in 1989 and he converted in 1998. Joe 2006-06-14

Yep, this is right. The vast majority of his works were written before he came into the Church. —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 20:20, June 14, 2006 (CDT)

featured article template

Good subject for the featured article, but the featured article template article should link to the genuine article. (The Ladder of Divine Ascent). I'd do it but I can't. Andrew 09:09, July 7, 2006 (CDT)

I got it! —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 09:16, July 7, 2006 (CDT)


Thanks for your recent cleanup work, Pistevo! — FrJohn (talk)


Your additions to the Lossky article seemed to suggest you had a source -- would you tell me what that source is? Thanks! --Fr Lev 14:13, August 3, 2006 (CDT)

No complaint -- just curious.--Fr Lev 20:51, August 3, 2006 (CDT)

Bp Thomas

The page for the Right Reverend Bishop Thomas of Oakland and the East was edited by SBambakidis at the direct request of the Bishop. Could you please revert that page to the one preferred by the Bisop. Thank you—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Brianpartridge (talkcontribs) .

This issue was adequately addressed by Dcn Andrew on Talk:Brianpartridge. — edited by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 07:15, August 14, 2006 (CDT)


Hey where's the sources of the criticisms on the Lossky page. The contridict his writings which state specifically that the Roman Catholic church was the one who confused essence, hypostasis and person. Where's your sources? LoveMonkey 13:23, August 28, 2006 (CDT)

This question has already been put forward by Fr Lev, and answered on his talk page. — edited by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 06:40, August 29, 2006 (CDT)

You have not answered anything. Your comments amount to stating that someone else posted the comments you provided no source. I have looked into the article history and you added the criticisms section and content. You are a sysop please source your content. I would like to know where these inaccurate comments are coming from. Lossky very clear did not confuse anything and very clearly stated in the book that his comments WHERE that the word persona and Ousia where misunderstood and misused.

I am still at odds with the article. Lossky was never but negative about many ideas within the church in Mystical theology those including ideas and people expressed here as if he endorsed them. Lossky was critical of sophiology, new age, ecumenism in his works. I will look up the page numbers since if I am not mistaken Lossky mentions Florovsky by name and states that his teachings are wrong. Lossky most definitely does the same with Nikolai Berdyaev.

Oh, I see. He copied the model copyright notice -- complete with name. These are the things that make intellectual property lawyers (like me) chuckle.

Thanks for reinstating and fixing.

Youte2 Vandalism

Hello, I'm sorry I wasnt able to do more to stop/slow/reverse the damage. I didnt really know what I could do. Hopefully the vandalism wasnt too extensive. Hellenica 21:52, September 9, 2006 (CDT)

Yeah, you're absolutely right about that, sysop attribs help a great deal. I am quite glad I had the image source epiphany. It was a lot easier to revert 2 images than trying to stem a tide of countless vandalized articles. Whew. =) Hellenica 22:06, September 9, 2006 (CDT)

Good call! — FrJohn (talk)


Pistevo, Just a note to say thanks for keeping up the "Featured Article" section, especially in the wake of ASDamick's absence. — FrJohn (talk)


Hi Pistevo, Hmm... this was happening to me for a little while yesterday and I thought I fixed it :-(. I don't get this anymore. Can you do a "hard refresh" (usually shift-refresh) and let me know if the problem persists, and which browser you're using? For me, Firefox and Safari aren't doing this anymore... Thanks! — FrJohn (talk)

I made another change, please try again Pistevo! — FrJohn (talk)


Hi Pistevo,

Not sure I can offer any suggests re: a picture. In my judgment, this shouldn't really be a featured article. It's not very complete or developed for one thing, but also the controversial nature of the article might leave a bad taste in some people's mouths. Thanks, — FrJohn (talk)

Accept Revised?

Dear Pistevo,

There's been a request to use some of your edited content on Wikipedia. Would you mind putting the Acceptrevised template on your user page to clarify the copyright (you can add it like this: {{acceptrevised}}? That would be very helpful! Thanks, — FrJohn (talk) 08:53, April 25, 2007 (PDT)

Monastery of Pantanassa, Australia

Hi Pistevo, I thought I might send you a little note to let you know that I have grown up with two of the monks at this monastery (before they were monks). As such, one of the monk's sister is my close friend and she has a million to one photos of this monastery. I have asked her if she would email me some so that we can upload them onto this site. Since you have been looking after all the Australian related pages i thought I might let you know so that you can upload pictures and format them yourself. Do you have an email? I dont know how to give you my email in a private way so you can contact me ...any ideas? Vasiliki 14:30, January 20, 2008 (PST)
