Jump to: navigation, search

This Help Wanted page is for posting solicitations for assistance for various in-progress articles and projects on OrthodoxWiki. You can either post a request for help or respond to such requests on the Talk page.

Requests for new articles should be posted in Suggestions.

If nothing listed below strikes your interest, here are some other ideas:

  • Add richer content to stub pages, lengthen short pages that warrant being longer, and help expand new pages that are just getting started.
  • Refine the content of unnecessarily long pages and clean up pages that could possess a higher quality of content.
  • Help create wanted pages that don't currently possess any content, but are highly relevant to other pages.
  • Add uncategorized pages to relevant categories and link orphaned or dead-end pages to other articles that possess similar or relevant information.

Matching the DEC

The Blackwell Dictionary of Eastern Christianity (DEC) is a fantastic resource. A select list has been copied (including the vast majority of articles) onto this page. It is strongly suggested that those looking for something to work on try starting here, as it will help to allay systemic bias and make OrthodoxWiki more complete. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!)

Online Orthodox Bible Commentary

An ambitious and massive project, to say the least, but one which could potentially develop into an invaluable resource. Online Orthodox Bible Commentary

Friends - today I started an article about evangelicalism. There is a lot that still needs to be added. Please feel free to help out with this article. What is most needed, I think, is the section on Orthodox responses to evangelical positions. - Geoff

Introduction to Orthodox Christianity

Please make some suggestions at the Talk page for the upcoming series on an Introduction to Orthodox Christianity.

Witnessing Orthodoxy

I just wrote this article on witnessing Orthodoxy. I need the help of people experienced/educated in witnessing the Orthodox faith to non and ex believers to help make this into a very informative article. I have posted up a very rough work that I wanted to suggest basing this on at [1], please feel free to use that if you wish.


We need someone(s) to donate some time to taking pictures of the various vestments used. I think it would be good to show what they look like when they are not in use and when they are in use. Now that I am on the topic, why not dedicate a month to a particular topic or category for picture farming. For instance, all of us could take pictures of vestments and their use in the month of January. In February we could all take pictures of our church's icons. March could be dedicated to blah, etc. Just a thought Joe

Old Calendar Greek Orthodox

Can anyone tell me about the "CHRISTIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OF HELLAS OF THE ORIGINAL GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH" ? Thank you. And, sorry it is a mouthful. My specific interest relates to Archbishop MAXIMUS who, in November 2003 in Athens, consecrated HENRY PAUL KONTOR as a metropolitan bishop on behalf of the Holy Synod of the COCHOGOC -- according to the website of Apostolic Congress of Great Britain. I understand that the COCHOGOC is (was ?) an Old Calendar church. From Diakonias 12:46, January 29, 2014 (PST). Posted on January 29, 2014.

UPDATE: I think that (by further searching on the Web) I have now answered my own question. It seems that this Maximus or Maximos is Maximos Valliantos, sometime metropolitan of Kefalonia (Cephalonia) who on 7th January 1995 became leader of the tiny "Auxentian" old calendar Greek Orthodox jurisdiction, in succession to Auxentios Pastras who had died (reposed) in 1995. Auxentios Patras was leader of the "Florinite" old calendarists. The "Auxentians" are those who remained loyal to Auxentios after he was deposed in 1986. There is a page on Orthodoxwiki called "Auxentios synod". From Diakonias 14.1:14, October 4, 2014
