I am an reader, contributor, editor, and sysop here at the OW. In case you are wondering, I would refer to myself as a non-Orthodox / Heterodox Christian. I have a very strong interest in Eastern Orthodoxy and its relationship to the historic Christian faith. I also edit pages at Wikipedia, but I prefer to work here.
If you would like to learn more about me you can visit my home page, https://joeandjessie.net/. I can't promise you will find lots of engaging information there, however. You can ignore the security certificate mismatch. I use my web host's SSL certificate so I can make secure logins when I'm away from home.
My Work Here
For now, I have an interest in working with the Help wanted and Special pages. I have worked some on the Church Calendar. I would like to start developing some series on basic Orthodox beliefs and practices: These include:
Template:Sacraments- Rdr. Andrew working on similar project
I also have interests in helping make clarifications and suggestions for the Style Manual. For instance, I would like to help keep pages clear and concise. Having really long pages runs the risk of a lot of page scrolling. On the other hand, I am learning that short pages have their own problems. Other than that, I have been organizing conversion stories. In addition to this, I hope to get some maps created.
