Hi Kathleen. Thanks for you contributions. --Muser 03:38, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Hello Kathleen. It's nice to see a fellow Adelaidean editing at WikiChristian. Would you like put a link for your church in the Churches in Adelaide Index section? --Graham grove 03:54, 5 November 2007 (EST)

(I read your reply to Graham grove). I agree, that the spam filter is a bit annoying isn't it? I'm not sure how to change it, but I guess we just work around it. I'm intrigued by your statement that "I am a Christian but I don't go to church because some people that go to church are hypocrites." - I'm not offended in any way, I'm just intrigued. Could you expand a little? --Muser 05:08, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Hi Kathleen. Thanks for your contributions so far. I notice that you removed some of the "red" links in different articles. I think that its worth keeping these red links in, because eventually they be editted and new pages will be created. So rather than removing red links, it may be better to add content to them. Oh, by the way, have you seen: WikiChristian:Beliefs? --Muser 15:16, 6 November 2007 (EST)

Hi. Yes I've seen the Vietnamese pages. Someone worked on them some time ago. I think they are passages from the Bible. I'm happy to leave it for the moment, and see if someone continues to work on it in the future. --Graham grove 14:21, 9 November 2007 (EST)

Thanks for putting all the clean-up tags. Unfortunately it still doesn't solve the problem. For example, I've deleted the givemepink page for About Moore College, but if you search for "Moore College" it still appears. The problem appears to be related to the single slash (/) and the double slash (//). --Muser 21:29, 10 November 2007 (EST)

Okay, I've worked out a way of getting rid of the files with the // as well. It takes a little time, but I'll get there over the next few weeks. --Muser 22:05, 10 November 2007 (EST)

Thanks by the way for the work you are doing. You might have noticed that there are different styles of pages. Currently we are working on changing all the pages to the standard style that is described at Wikichristian:Page Layout. We would love for you to help us change some of the older pages into this style. Note that this style is for the main article for a topic; it doesn't apply for opinion articles (see Wikichristian:Opinion articles for information about these). --Muser 22:18, 10 November 2007 (EST)

Re: Vandalism Reverting

Hi Kathleen! Thanks for removing the vandalism of the funny looking animal-thing from those pages. Where do people come up with this stuff? Actually, a better question is why do they come up with it?

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that next time you revert vandalism, make sure you don't just blank the page; if you do that, then all the work previously made on that page will be erased, and someone has to go back and revert again to the last non-vandalised version. If only one vandal edit has been made to the page, just use the "undo" button found in the page's history. If two or more vandal edits have been made to the same page, then:

  1. Click "History" at the top of the article,
  2. Click the date of the last non-vandalised version,
  3. Click "edit the page" when the page opens,
  4. Type in an edit summary such as "reverted vandalism" and then click save.

God bless! -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 04:31, 21 December 2007 (PST)

We cleaned it all up; there was plenty of it :-) Just another immature kid, by the sounds of it. Thanks for your help. -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 17:28, 13 January 2008 (PST)

Dead Sea and WikiProject Invitation

Hi Kathleen,

Sorry I took so long in acting upon your message. To be honest, I didn't see it until just today. I can't think how I missed it, especially for so long. Instead of deleting Dead Sea, I thought it would just be better to redirect it to Dead Sea (EBD). And I left Graham Grove a reminder about your invitation. You still wanted me to, right? God bless! -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 19:13, 16 April 2008 (PDT)

Category Problem

Hi Kathleen,

Again, sorry for the delayed response :) I think the problem with the Template Category showing up on articles is because, since the whole template is transcluded, the categories are moved onto the articles as well. The way to fix it would be to go to the template page and put the following code around the category link:


Whatever is between the two "no include" tags will not be transcluded to the articles the template is used on. I tried it with WikiChristian:Video of the day and it worked; the main page is no longer in the video of the day category :)

Now, I know on your Wikipedia user page it says you do not want to be an admin, but I think you could really help out here with the extra tools (working on the protected templates, deleting all the spam articles you're always coming across, etc.). Would you like me to make you a sysop?

God bless! -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 19:30, 20 May 2008 (PDT)

P.S. -- I moved the CKB article on Bible trivia into Category:Bible.

Okay, you're now an admin. The sysop tools are pretty straightforward and easy to use (and no, you don't have to read any specific policies). The only thing that may seem difficult at first is blocking; but if you follow the instructions at Special:Blockip, you'll get it :) Reading the various admin-related pages on Wikipedia obviously couldn't hurt, though. I'm not sure how to fix the template problem at the CKB, but I'll look into it. Anyways, thanks for those sites you recommended :)
Feel free to protect any pages in your user-space if you want, except your talk, obviously :) And don't feel shy about using the sysop priviledges. If you make a mistake, it can be undone (contrary to what everyone on Wikipedia says, but what do they know?).
God bless, P.B. Pilhet / Talk 02:26, 22 May 2008 (PDT)
P.S. You don't need to bother with semi-protection, as IP's can't edit WikiChristian any more anyways.
I can't seem to find a way around the category problem; first off, noincluding the templates doesn't seem to remove the articles from the categories (for some crazy reason), and second the articles' formatting gets all screwed up. I think we should just remove the Category:Template thing altogether. It's unfortunate, but I think it's the only thing to do. I've already tried every wiki formatting trick I know :( And yeah, if rollback will help speed up your various tasks, feel free to use it :) -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 18:02, 22 May 2008 (PDT)


Hi Kathleen. Thanks for all your organizing work. Could you however please keep all the of the returnto sections at the end of a page. Remember that this is not wikipedia and has some differences. Take a look at Layout section. Thanks. --Graham grove 01:01, 25 May 2008 (PDT)

Hi Kathleen. I think the problem has been solved by putting the "noinclude" section into the return to template. I just edited A Mighty Stronghold is our God (song) - before I editted it, it was in the Categories:Template page, but after saving it, it no longer was. I think each page with "returnto" in it just needs to be resaved for it to disappear from the Categories:Template page. Hope this helps. Cheers. --Graham grove 03:12, 25 May 2008 (PDT)


...on blocking your first vandal :) Just one thing though, make sure that when you use a block template on the vandal's talk page that you "subst" the template. This puts less load on the server, and also enables the automatic signature feature to work in the template (so you don't have to sign any block templates). Thanks a bunch for all the cleanup you've been doing!!! It means so much to everyone at WikiChristian :) God bless! -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 00:58, 6 June 2008 (PDT)

P.S. -- Particulary, thanks for removng the givemepink crap. I got your email, and yes, those redirects are very time-consuming and tiring to get rid of! :) -- 01:00, 6 June 2008 (PDT)

Latest Vandalsim

Hi Kathleen, don't bother using rollback on the latest vandalism ("love from ebaums"), because it will just revert to more vandalism. The vandal, whoever he is, is obviously using a script to vandalize an article with one account, then vandalize it again with another account, thus causing rollback to only revert to the first vandal edit. I'm going to go around other wikis and ask how we can prevent this from happening again. In the mean time, we just have a lot of boring manual reverting to do. -- P.B. Pilhet / Talk 17:59, 9 June 2008 (PDT)

Good job!

Hey there. I noticed all the work you did lately and I must say, great job! Helping add categories to pages help the navigation of our wiki. Nice to see you around helping our wiki for others. :-) Keep it up! God bless, Ryan†Cross (talk) 09:41, 31 July 2008 (PDT)


Hi, this is my first day here.

Template:Tnavbar has a bug in it, but I do not know how to fix it. It creates an unneeded "" in my use of it in Template:Denominations in the United States Index‎. No one else uses Tnavbar yet at but I did not create it.--Carlaude (talk) 01:06, 6 August 2008 (PDT)

I can edit most templates, and make some templates-- but Tnavbar, is just too complex for me.
Do you think one is any better/bigger/different than the other?--Carlaude (talk) 09:54, 6 August 2008 (PDT)
I can speak to that. I am presently working on the whole Template:Navbox ... thing. It is not working like Wikipedia yet and I can't figure out why. I am trying, but I suggest not being dependent on it, quite yet. For a working example of collapsible tables, see Template:Bible versions. --Aquatiki 01:24, 6 August 2008 (PDT)
Thanks.--Carlaude (talk) 09:54, 6 August 2008 (PDT)

Thanks for your ongoing work

Kathleen, thanks for your ongoing work at fixing up the vandalism. You're doing brilliantly. Much appreciated. --Graham grove 03:00, 7 August 2008 (PDT)

Thanks for clean, but did you know that ...

you don't have to bother with the verse pages (i.e. Ezra 7:1, etc.) or the text pages (Template:Mark 1:1 (WEB), etc.) if you don't want to, because they're about to be written over. User:BotUm is overwriting all of them but it will take the next fortnight to be all done. Keep going if you want to, but they're all gonna be gone or overwritten soon. Thanks for all your hard work! Respectfully, Aquatiki 17:16, 7 August 2008 (PDT)

EBD names

Hi Kathleen. You've been doing a great job on the Easton's Bible Dictionary pages. Well done and thank you. You might want to look at Talk:Easton's Bible Dictionary‎ and put your two cents worth in. By the way, this won't undo any of your work at all - because everything will be redirected; furthermore, eventually BotUm can redo the links that you've already done so they don't need to redirect. --Graham grove 14:38, 3 October 2008 (PDT)

I see Graham has beaten me to the punch, but I wanted to let you know that I can redo all the links in EBD pages quite easily. I'll wait to a majority of pages are moved over, then I'll run it once. Then, after they're all over, I'll run it again. Then, we can delete all the redirects. --Aquatiki 20:47, 15 October 2008 (PDT)

Clean-up Project

Hi Kathleen. Thanks once again for the great work you have been doing with the Easton Bible Dictionary wikifying! You might want to take a look at WikiChristian:Clean-up to see some of the changes that are happening at WikiChristian at the moment. This especially concerns you because Easton Bible Dictionary pages are being moved. It'd be great if you would like to help out with the moving of these pages. By the way, by moving them, we won't lose any of the hard work you've done because of the automatic redirects that occur when you move a page. --Graham grove 12:14, 8 October 2008 (PDT)

Good Work

Well done Kathleen. Thanks for sorting out the technical problems with WikiChristian. And brilliant work getting rid of the Matthew Henry Commentary pages! --Graham grove 10:26, 10 October 2008 (PDT)


Hi Kathleen. Since there are over 3,000 EBD pages, I've figured out that it will take a long time to move them all. If you, me and Aquatiki all moved 10 a day, then in 100 days we'd have them all moved. I'm going to start with the letter M (for no particular reason - purely random) and work from there. If you like to join me and choose another letter, go for it. Thanks. --Graham 06:47, 17 October 2008 (PDT)


Hi Kathleen. Good work with everything you've been doing. When importing articles from other sources you might want to consider a few extra things - these are only suggestions: (1) rewording them so that they fit WikiChristian CPOV (2) reformatting the page so that it fits WikiChristian:Page Layout (3) adding a link in the appropriate page / index and add the {{returnto}} feature. Anyway, keep up the good work. --Graham 08:16, 22 October 2008 (PDT)

Wow - Good work

Good work Kathleen. I'm impressed at the amount of page moements you've done! --Graham 12:19, 24 October 2008 (PDT)

Server fixed

Server has been fixed. Spoke with a tech guy who sorted the problem out. Thanks Kathleen for bringing it to my attention. Graham. -- 01:10, 25 October 2008 (PDT)

Good stuff

Wow. Keep up the good work in moving those EBD pages Kathleen. At this rate they'll all be moved by the end of the year! --Graham 09:17, 3 November 2008 (PST)


Wow. You've continued to move the EBD pages at a rate of knots. Well done and thank you for your dedication. --Graham 03:29, 13 November 2008 (PST)

You're not human, are you? I can't imagine androids with your kind of stamina and devotion. I'm glad you're on our team! Way to go and thanks for your hard work! --Aquatiki 13:51, 15 November 2008 (PST)

I may have made some mistakes

I was moving Greek:Name of page to Koine Greek:Name of page and I think I may have made some mistakes deleting some redirect pages to 'inflections' as on the WikiChristian:Clean-up page and that were on this page (now deleted completely) Special%3AAllpages&from=Wisdom+of+Solomon&namespace=102. I was trying to get them out of the Greek Bible Namespace - more also on following page written in Greek. See Deletion Log for today (November 18) for details. Kathleen.wright5 03:53, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

No problems. It would probably be handy to hold off on doing any thing for the Greek stuff at the moment. Robert and I haven't quite figured out the best way to do the Greek stuff. I think in the end we were thinking of putting all of the individual Koine Greek words in the Greek name-space because they are probably the sort of articles that people who click on "Random page" don't want to come across - but I can see that that hasn't been updated into the Clean-up page. So don't worry about any of the Greek stuff - Robert and I will sort that out. And anything that has been lost is not a huge deal - so don't worry about that. But thanks for letting me know though. By the way, brilliant work on moving all of the EBD stuff. Well done. Thanks. --Graham 07:56, 18 November 2008 (PST)

Deleted pages?

Hi Kathleen. Just wondering what your logic was for deleting Luke 23:20 to Luke 24:6? They are important redirects as far as I can see. Cheers. --Graham 08:57, 2 March 2009 (PST)


Hi Kathleen

Thanks so much for cleaning up so much of the vandalism. Keep up the good work. I guess this is an example of Christian service!

Recent vandalism

Thanks for jumping on the recent vandalism so quickly Kathleen. Matt 19:53, 9 October 2009 (PDT)

What's happening with recent changes to Bible verses?

Kathleen, the recent edits to Bible verses marked with "manual revert - wikitable not right" don't appear to have had any positive effect. Those pages are no longer rendered correctly -- I see wiki markup at the top of the page now. Can you please review what changes you have made and try again? Matt 07:06, 26 November 2009 (PST)

It's really weird. I can't see what's wrong with your edit, and can see no significant difference between your and earlier versions that worked. If you look at Amos 3 now, it works, but I do not know what I changed. The way I do reversion is to go to the last good version (by clicking a link from the History page), edit that version, then Save (making no changes). Matt 15:55, 26 November 2009 (PST)

I like the new logo you uploaded Gumax.png and the GumaxTop.png. Can you move wikichristian to the top and the free encyclopedia to the bottom and reduce the fontsize to fit with the other part of the logo with the the bible and the cross? --Prab 22:14, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back

Welcome back Kathleen. You have been one of the most active users, if not the most active user, in the history of WikiChristian. We truly appreciate all the hard work you put in this project and we pray that the Lord blesses you and your family abundantly. We look forward to having you continue to play a pro-active role in making WikiChristian one of the most useful Christian encyclopedias. Thank you. Prab

Hi Kathleen. Welcome back to WikiChristian. I spent some time looking through the sort of amazingly hard work you've done at WikiChristian in the past and I'm very grateful. You spent lots of time cleaning up content and helping maintain organization in the site. I'm going to put you down on the Senior Editors page as a Senior Editor in Site Presentation and Organization. Is that okay?

2 Kings

Hello, I had a question regarding 2 Kings.

I was checking through the Old Testament on this site for errors (like the ones I noticed in Esther and out of all the books I've seen, there was no "Bible:" before the page name for chapters. 2 Kings is to my knowledge, the only book that does this and I find it a little strange since "Bible:" tends to be reserved for verses.

I suppose it's a little silly asking you about these things 8+ years after you moved them all in October 2015, but I'm a fan of consistency so either all chapters of every book should follow suite, or the changes should be reverted. I decided it was most appropriate to ask you before attempting to revert anything.

I'm a very new user so I'm not very sure what could've been the reason, perhaps it was a mistake or some kind of movement that didn't really catch on? I'm in favor of reverting all 25 chapters back to their original URLs, and I'd love to hear your take before actually doing anything.
