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.

| PLEASE read carefully the section of the Style Manual titled OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual (Point of View). |
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:Elef. Feel free also to add your picture to the OrthodoxWiki:User gallery.
If you are uploading images, be sure you're doing so legally and according to OrthodoxWiki policy. Failure to abide by policy may result in your images getting deleted without warning.
If you would like to experiment with the wiki, please feel free to do so in the Sandbox.
By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and other discussion pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. Please sign your comments on Talk pages, so everyone will easily be able to see who left them.

We hope you enjoy editing here and being a part of our community! Vasiliki 09:22, September 1, 2008 (UTC)
I removed reference to GOYouth since it already appeared under External Links. We [shouldnt] do a link [sentence] in the body of [an] article [IF we already have the same sentence as an External link because it is doubling up in the one article]. Vasiliki 10:10, September 1, 2008 (UTC)
- There's nothing wrong with putting links into the body of an article, but only if it's appropriate (i.e., don't link every possible thing). The "External links" section is usually for material that is directly relevant to the whole subject of the article, while adding such links internally into the article is usually for links that are relevant only to a relatively minor point. —Fr.

- Have I improved/clarified what I was trying to say? I might just tell him face to face ... Vasiliki 00:24, September 2, 2008 (UTC)
