Welcome Virgil, it's good to have you here! Fr. John
Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!
Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Please note that OrthodoxWiki is always in development, so not everything works quite right yet. You can help, though!
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.

Also please note that other editors will assume that you have read the Style Manual (our official editing guidelines). If you're wondering why an edit was reverted, an article renamed, or any other unexpected changes were made by another editor, check there.
Please also take a few moments to edit your user page by clicking on your name here, so that we can know a bit about you: User:Vandrona. Feel free also to add your picture to the OrthodoxWiki:User gallery.

- That's great! So is writing articles for OrthodoxWiki actually your project? Fr. John
- It's neat to hear that. I'm very glad to see OrthodoxWiki being used in this way. Fr. John
Ah, thanks so much for alerting me to the program! Mostly because I was really starting to wonder about whether a surge of five or more ethics articles within a few days could possibly be coincidental. It suddenly makes so much sense.
Are you all interested in doing all the books of the Bible (or NT first) next? (Semi-joking). That's the area I personally think needs the most work here -- I think we have an article for one gospel, maybe one epistle, and Revelations, for some reason. In any case, the ethics articles are a welcome addition to the wiki. Gabriela 20:48, March 2, 2007 (PST)
- Dragă parinte, mulţumesc de răspuns. Ar fi lipsă de câteva articole teologice importante de care nu îndrăzneşte nimeni să se apuce în acest moment. Şi mă gândeam la frăţia ta pentru că eşti mai proaspăt cu şcoala decât mine... Exemple: ro:Teologie, ro:Sfânta Treime, ro:Iisus Hristos etc. Mulţumesc lui Magda de gândul cel bun, eu nu aş fi îndrăznit să-i cer, că e muncă de ocnaş... Doamne ajută! -- Inistea 08:42, March 11, 2007 (PDT)
Thank you for 'cleaning up' the article :-) I am hopeless but I love it when people 'fix up' my grammatical errors etc. Vasiliki 22:55, May 19, 2008 (UTC)
