Talk:All-American Council

Concerning the Metropolitan election at the 13th All-American Council, the article said that "Bp. Seraphim of Ottawa and Canada received the greatest number of votes on the first ballot". I've changed "the majority" to "the greatest number", since his 267 votes were less than the combined votes of the other significant contenders: Abp. Herman, Bp. Job, Abp. Nathaniel, Bp. Nikolai, and Abp. Dmitri had respectively 141+52+47+47+45 votes, which comes out to 332 - more than Bp. Seraphim. Steorra 02:41, November 18, 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing this. The technical term for this is plurality (i.e., the most votes), while a majority is more than 50%. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 02:44, November 18, 2008 (UTC)

First America Council/ Sobor?

The change of April 3, 2010 to this article is misplaced as it is a subject that properly belongs in the article First-American Sobor. This change must be reverted so that the proper description of the First American Council of the OCA is restored. Please noted the heading paragraph of this article. Wsk 16:37, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for catching this. --Basil 23:01, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
