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.

Forgive my mistakes, I would like to contribute, I speak Italian and English will wait a little step by step instructions fr. John. I do not know where to put my contributions in Italian, because we do not have the site in Italian, forgive me! Raggiodisole 10:04, February 23, 2011 (UTC)
- I am glad that this is expanding. Did you read OrthodoxWiki:Localization? It contains some of what needs to be done to port the OrthodoxWiki project into other languages. The way I think it works is that Fr. John will set up a site named <xx>.OrthodoxWiki.com with the <xx> being two letters that stand for Italian. It will be there that you will post in Italian. It will be its own site, but have an affiliate relationship with this site. Since it is its own site, I believe it will take a lot of effort to create and maintain a new OrthodoxWiki site in Italian (something like http://www.it.orthodoxwiki.org). Good luck. I see that you already contacted Fr. John, is he setting up a site for Italian now?
- Yes, thank you for this information, now I understand better.
I look happy to open the site in Italian by Fr John, I hope this will happen soon so I can write. Thanks for your help, I look forward to more news. Do not insert anything here to avoid errors, but only on Italian site after I post there, I contacted for this fr John and I hope he'll see. Best wishes from me and from Italy!

Raggiodisole, I now have a wiki setup for you at http://it.orthodoxwiki.org. You should have Sysop rights there. Please let me know if you need anything else. Grazie — FrJohn (talk) 05:37, March 3, 2011 (UTC)
