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:HiFiGuy. 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.

We hope you enjoy editing here and being a part of our community!
St. Tikhon's pic photoshopping
Why would you want to do that? I wouldn't want to set a precedent for including altered photos on the wiki, which tries to be authentically documented. So I suppose my answer is that I'd prefer that you didn't do that with this photo or with any other. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 12:18, February 2, 2006 (CST)
(Your talk is on my watchlist -HiFiGuy)
- Me? or Deacon Andrew?
- Advice? Hmm... There is an old Chinese saying, "Vaya con Dios." -HiFiGuy 14:23, February 5, 2006 (CST)
- Well, I'm not Orthodox, but my wife is (and choir director at Church of the Holy Transfiguration in Pearl River, New York and singer in Spirit of Orthodoxy and Holy Myrrhbearers Women's Choir)... I am also HiFiGuy on Wikipedia and usually end up editing pages because either 1. I know something first-hand about the material (duh) or 2. I hit "random page" and am merely cleaning it up for readability.
- I think you should get the word out to the Orthodox community; sites and links pages should link up to this one. (I know it's on Transfiguration's links page because I put it there.) -HiFiGuy 21:29, February 8, 2006 (CST)
