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)

PS. I also visit the monastery of Panaghia Gorgoipikoos in Geelong on a monthly basis and am also very close to the abbess. Is there any information you would like me to get from there that you think would be a good idea for this site. Vasiliki 14:33, January 20, 2008 (PST)

List of Parishes in Victoria article

Hi Pistevo, in the Sandbox ...its in a previous version ... I have a list of the Parishes in Victoria sorted (with only a few left to go) ... Do you think that this format works? If the answer is yes, how do I go about changing the original article? Do i need to get a adminstrators vote or do I need to simply speak with the originator of the article (you) in this instance? In any case, could you take a look and tell me what you think before I sort of go about 'rapping up' that loose end ... Vasiliki 17:36, March 20, 2008 (PDT)

AusGreek net ... I just wanted to point out that it had many links that you might have wanted to incorporate into the articles ... As for the parishes list ... I am definately aware of the fact that there are various outside of Melbourne as such ... I think how you dealt with it in the original article is still very much appropriate ...also, once I have the parishes sorted into the geographical councils/suburgbs i wont include those councils/suburbs that are empty, I guess i wanted your thoughts about it bc I had promised to help you out but I was stuck on how to do it, should I do it at the Council level and then have the suburbs as a second level or just list according to suburbs and leave it at that ...Vasiliki 18:06, March 20, 2008 (PDT)

Please explain..

Why you have endorsed the revision of the article you rolled back to, before protecting the article? Thank you. Cebactokpatop 13:29, March 6, 2008 (PST)

Thank you for your explanation, that reveals your siding with one side in the dispute. Such a behavior is not appropriate for a sysop, and I will have to question your competence before respective authorities further. Cebactokpatop 05:13, March 7, 2008 (PST)

Australian Orthodox weblinks

Do you know about this site AusGREEK NET.COM? I figure you might like to use it in updating the OrthodoxWiki Australian articles ... Vasiliki 17:39, March 20, 2008 (PDT)

Chrysostom Homily

I was just thinking half hour ago that it was time to update that section and you went ahead and did it!! Xristos Anesti! Vasiliki 03:07, April 29, 2008 (UTC)

I need help

Hello, I would like to post my dissertation from Pennsylvania State University entitled THE RELEVANCE OF THE MARONITE AND MELKITE CHURCHES WITHIN THE CATHOLIC ECCLESIAL COMMUNION I guess I need technical help more than anything, as I am not sure how this website works and am not technically inclined

Thank you very much


Rolling back

This vandal worked with a pair of accounts. Rolling back won't work.  :/ We have to go into each article's history and find a version before these two accounts got into it. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 11:51, June 10, 2008 (UTC)

Not sure. In any event, this pairing technique is particularly annoying. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 11:57, June 10, 2008 (UTC)

Active appeal

There's currently an active appeal over at OrthodoxWiki talk:Administrators. If as an admin, you would like to participate, please feel free to do so. Thanks! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 16:02, August 19, 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for stepping on correcting the titles for the bishops. I had gotten confused on some of them, based on the Patriarchate's texts and other comments. I was especially confused on Kenya when I tries to put together items for Successions. You seem more informed on Africa, so I hope you may have info to extend the successions of the older dioceses.

URGENT - Ambush by computer generated Users

OSRM article?!?!

Am I reading what you said right on the Admins page? You want an OSRM (or -- just slightly safer-- a comparative Sarum rite) article? Do you not envision the bloodshed of at least a half-dozen or so booted users that would ensue off such, myself likely unwillingly included? --JosephSuaiden 22:21, February 18, 2009 (UTC)

Req for involvement

Hey, would you mind taking a look at the comments here and getting involved? I reverted for what seemed to me to be obvious reasons (esp. somewhat POV language), but as our Ozzie-in-Chief, I thought perhaps you might be better suited to handle this. Thanks! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 13:10, April 24, 2009 (UTC)

Appologies and thanks...


I know my prior post may have appeared hostile and on the front foot. For this I appologise both to yourself and Fr Andrew. I only hope that you both understand that I am a young Orthodox Serb that is constantly choked by iggnorance amongst the powers that be and your involvement (ammendmants) were refreshing to read.

I and many other interested persons appreciate your consideration and ammendments to the page.

Thankyou for the fairness you have displayed.


Byzantine chant question

Hi Pistevo, I came across your user page and saw that you can ead Byzantine notation. I am a 14 year old boy teaching myself how to read Byzantine music, but have a question I thought you could answer. I know that the oligon, petasthé, and kentémata are all ascending seconds, but this confuses me: how can there be three symbols for an ascending second? How are each used? Thank you, --Iliada 15:55, June 24, 2009 (UTC)

Psalter quote question

You told me that Fr. Georges Florovsky said the quote about the golden thread and the psalter found here: Psalter. I can't find that anywhere. Can you point me to a reliable source that says that? I find golden thread and the mind of the fathers, φρόνημα τόν Πατέρον (sp?) but nothing about the Psalter. CampNazFanatic 01:11, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

Directory entries

As you probably noticed that during our discussions in 2007 about deleting parish directory pages in the USA that I agreed in their removal, mainly over the issue of maintaining their currency. I still favor their removal for that reason. Also, even the effort of maintaining a simple listing of parishes for the world means thousands of entries, maybe tens of thousands, that should be in some orderly manner but could be difficult given the differences of opinions concerning identity of the ecclesiastical groups.

St Petroc Monastery, Hobart Closing off the the St Petroc Monastery page and converting it to history may be a liitle premature.


“...I have accordingly, held a meeting of the main people of our Hobart mission, where I explained to them what has happened, the vicious politics and the changes in ROCOR. I told them that I could no longer stay in ROCOR. They were already aware of some of my feelings. The Mission will remain intact under Metropolitan Hilarion, with Fr Barry in charge - as has been the practice for some considerable time...”

Also you may want to reference his new “commission” Dmitry Mogutnov Reverend Michael was adopted by Us Our Amofor.

Non-mainstream Australia articles

Would you be able to go through the contributions for FILOIGIAPANTA and make sure that things are standardized for OWiki? I think you are much more familiar with Australian information than I am! For instance, he was the only contributor to Holy Orthodox Metropolis of Australia & Oceania (OC), so an automatic rollback doesn't work, and I'm not sure how accurate the information is, since no sources are given. —magda (talk) 16:20, March 20, 2015 (PDT)
