{{welcome}} [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 20:35, February 15, 2007 (PST) == Chrysobull == Thanks for the clarification! (I one found more [[w:Golden Bull|here]].) :) —[[User:Magda|<b>magda</b>]] ([[User_talk:Magda|talk]]) 10:58, March 6, 2007 (PST) == Succession boxes == Hello! I've noticed that you've been doing a lot of serial vandalswork on articles about bishops lately. Thank you! You may find it useful to take a look at the standardized [[OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual (Succession boxes)|manual on succession boxes]]. Thanks for your valuable work! &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, trolls and sockpuppetters Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr. Andrew</font>]] <sup>[[User_talk:ASDamick|<font color="red">talk</font>]]</sup> <small>[[Special:Contributions/ASDamick|<font color="black">contribs</font>]]</small> 08:59, March 10, 2007 (PST) ==English names==Please read this link in regards to your revert of my changes in the Daniel II article: [[OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual#English names]]. The policy basically says that because this is an English-speaking wiki, we put names in English where possible. Likewise, we use New Calendar dates in most cases because in the English-speaking countries I'm aware of, only schismatic groups of Old Calendarists use the Julian calendar. Finally, if you're concerned about a Serbian not understanding the saint's name in English, how could he possibly understand the rest of Wikipediathe article, written in English? Sorry if I seem harsh; no offense intended. I know it takes a long time to figure out how everything on the wiki works. BasicallyHeck, I vandalize still don't understand a lot of it. [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 20:39, March 11, 2007 (PDT) : As an expansion on this, the policy is not simply to use English versions of names, but rather whatever is most common in English-language sources. In many cases, this will not include a standard English version of a name, e.g., "Nikolai of Zica," etc. : Also, for comments on the French calendar question, see [[User_talk:Gabriela#Julian_calendar_among_Anglophones]]. &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.

I understand Sava, because Sabbas isn't a common English name anyway, but common names like Paul or Daniel seem unlikely to be said as Pavle or Danilo by an Anglophone. Certain cases are debatable, but unfortunatelychanging names like Varnava to Barnabas, for example, all my open proxies there are blockedspecifically mandated in the style guide. [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 11:30, March 20, therefore 2007 (PDT) :Sorry if I seemed harsh the first time; I reread the style guide and for some cases you do have a point. But I think that if your intention is to help Americans understand Orthodoxy, they're going to relate a lot better to someone named Stephen (the name found in their Bible) than to someone named Stefan. In any case, I'm willing to leave the more ambiguous Serbian names as they are from now on. [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 11:35, March 20, 2007 (PDT) ::I'm happy we've come to an agreement. I think in a way we were both just fighting for our own respective language and culture. I understand why you'd want your saints' names in their original form. [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 20:19, March 20, 2007 (PDT) ==British Orthodox Church article== (pasted over by Gabriela from Ddpbf's main user page)Please may I know what exactly was meant by the changes and redirect you made to British Orthodox Church that I started and now I can't find any trace of my edits of this page , did you delete my edits?--[[User:Ghaly|Ghaly]] 16:55, March 25, 2007 (PDT) ==Serbian Orthowiki==Ah, that would be excellent! First I would suggest reading [[OrthodoxWiki:Localization]] to see some of the technicalities required. But to get authorization and get yourself added as an affiliate, you would need to talk to [[User:FrJohn|FrJohn]]. He's the boss around here, ultimately, and he'll be a lot better able to inform you of the specifics than I. Good luck, and I hope you had a blessed Annunciation! [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 20:44, March 25, 2007 (PDT) :Oh, sorry, I forgot about the calendar difference. Against Well, I hope your encyclopaedia Lent in general is going well, then! No problem about the edits; I have nothingthink you've added a lot of good information to the wiki. [[User:Gabriela|Gabriela]] 09:24, March 26, 2007 (PDT)*Помаже Бог. Ево регистровао сам се овде. Ево прво ћу направити главну страницу "наше" православне вики. == Interwiki == Yes, only forI see the problem, but my work I don't know how to fix it. I think this is thatsomething only [[User:FrJohn|FrJohn]] can do.-- &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.

[[User:Filipino|Filipino]] 07:31, May 18, 2007 (PDT) == How to delete pictures == Ddpbf, it looks like the pictures are not on ORTHODOX WIKI, but on, I am your new vandaltrying to purge them from there. - [[User:Andrew|Andrew]] 06:19, June 18, 2007 (PDT) == About language templates == Hello Dalibor, You asked me if I could add language boxes for Serbian, Ancient Greek, and Slavonic. Well I may not be the right person for this task because I know none of these languages. I did not add any language boxes, I just modified the Categories of the boxes that were already here. But I do agree that they should exist. I will see what I can do. - [[User:Andrew|Andrew]] 2109:0213, May 31June 21, 2009 2007 (UTCPDT)
