Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Hello, Coemgen, and 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.

Image permission

The image you uploaded is from Come and See Icons which informs:

Artwork remains the property of the Artist and his/her heirs and assigns for the lifetime of the Artist plus 70 years according to US and International law. This applies to Icons and Iconographers. "The laborer is worthy of his hire."
"COME AND SEE" Icons, Books & Art respects this and pays royalties where applicable and possible for all images published. Please help support Iconography in America by purchasing Icons by living Iconographers from vendors who respect copyrights or directly from the Iconographers themselves.
Do not deep-link to any of our icons. Feel free to link to pages on our site, but not to jpg files. Thank you.

Do we have explicit permission for this image? (Please see Help:Image licenses for more information.) —magda (talk) 08:20, May 23, 2006 (CDT)

I noted that you added a comment to the image in question that the iconographer had granted permission to use it. Would you mind reproducing the email or letter you have from him on the wiki so that we can have some form of documentation? —Dcn. Andrew talk random contribs 17:26, June 10, 2006 (CDT)
