Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!
OrthodoxWiki is a community-edited encyclopedia of Orthodox Christianity. Articles are created and edited by our members, and so everything that we do here is subject to review and revision. The result is a true consensus product, with every interested editor contributing his own knowledge and writing skills. As such, when you feel that criticism of an article is warranted, we encourage you to join in and fix it! Don't worry about breaking anything or doing something wrong—the other editors here are happy to jump in and help you learn.

Just a note to say "hello"! The Livestream page is a fantastic idea. Thanks for thinking of it! I've been on OW since almost the beginning in 2005. I've learned a fair bit about basic authoring of pages, but I don't do any creation of fancy things. :) The other thing is that I tend to be here in fits and starts, as my limited time allows, so I tend to have to relearn a lot of coding over and over again. Recently, my biggest project has been the "Orthodox Blogs" page, but I also enjoy writing about people & places... mainly places. :) Katjuscha (talk) 02:52, April 14, 2020 (UTC)
