How to write a great article
| PLEASE read carefully the section of the Style Manual titled OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual (Point of View). |
Also please note that other editors will assume that you have read the Style Manual (our official editing guidelines). If you're wondering why an edit was reverted, an article renamed, or any other unexpected changes were made by another editor, check there.
Please also take a few moments to edit your user page by clicking on your name here, so that we can know a bit about you: User:Willibrord. Feel free also to add your picture to the OrthodoxWiki:User gallery.
If you would like to experiment with the wiki, please feel free to do so in the Sandbox.
We hope you enjoy editing here and being a part of our community! --magda 18:11, 22 Apr 2005 (CDT)
If I get the time sometime soon, I will try to look over what you referred to in some detail. However, it may be a while, since my parish is hosting our diocesan conference this week.
In any event, my unofficial warning to you was not due to your having responded, but due to the manner of your response. You often indulged in pretty negative characterization of your interlocutor rather than dealing exclusively with the question of improving the article. That's inappropriate on OrthodoxWiki. As I have to Fr. Lev in email, I encourage you to ignore any comments directed at your person and focus only on content issues. If you don't, then you'll receive an official warning.
- BTW, just as an expansion of the above: It is not the sysop's job to check others' original research but to enforce the rules. Since the article in question has clearly become the subject of controversy, it will need to be thoroughly sourced from citable, reliable, third-party publications. —Fr.

First official warning
You are being issued an official warning for uncivil behavior by a sysop, as set forth in OrthodoxWiki's official disciplinary policy. This is your first warning.
If you wish to appeal this warning, you may do so by posting on OrthodoxWiki Talk:Administrators and stating the reason why you believe this warning was issued in error. Do not remove this warning yourself. Doing so will be considered uncivil behavior.
Your first Talk page edit on OrthodoxWiki included your name.
As to the rest that you posted on Talk:Liturgy of St. Tikhon of Moscow, as noted above, you are welcome to appeal the warning at the proper place. I looked over the contributions of your interlocutor since the Disciplinary Policy was put in place, and I did not feel that they warranted a warning. Perhaps another editor or group thereof will feel differently. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 02:36, August 9, 2008 (UTC)
Note: Since you have identified yourself here, you may wish to consolidate your user ID's as I did due to having forgotten my account info. --JosephSuaiden 17:40, August 11, 2008 (UTC)
Sincere apologies. I thought you were creating a user ID. Apparently a fan of yours called "Theocacna" created a page in your honor. --JosephSuaiden 17:45, August 11, 2008 (UTC)
- It's been deleted. I am sure that we'd all agree that none of us here warrant having our own encyclopedia entry. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 22:23, August 11, 2008 (UTC)
I for one would be terrified if I had one. --JosephSuaiden 01:34, August 12, 2008 (UTC)
Edit warring is vandalism. Please do not vandalise the Congregations and usages section of the Western Rite article again. The talk page is for discussion about disputatious edits. Chrisg 12:27, February 15, 2009 (UTC)
