Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Hello, Gabriela, 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.

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:Gabriela. 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.

You'll have to verify your email address before editing any pages. This helps us prevent spam. Don't worry, your email won't be viewable to anyone but the sysops. We respect your privacy.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the Questions page, or ask me on my Talk page.

We hope you enjoy editing here and being a part of our community!

To the standard welcome I wanted to add an extra thank-you for helping to clean up existing articles. It's very much needed! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 17:47, May 5, 2006 (CDT)


Excellent work on The Archangel Gabriel article! For future reference, you can use "thumb" instead of "frame" to take care of sizing an image. —magda (talk) 12:32, May 9, 2006 (CDT)

Sign of the Cross

It looks like you have made some great contributions to this article. I think I imported this from Wikipedia some time ago. Welcome! Joe 2006-05-10

Hagiographical articles, image licenses

Since I definitely want to encourage your contributions, here are a few links which I have found useful:

Also, when importing images from the Wikimedia Commons, please keep in mind that we still need categories and licensing information for each image. (cf. Help:Image licenses)

Again (and again, in peace): good work! —magda (talk) 12:48, May 17, 2006 (CDT)

Ah, thank you, again. That is helpful. Honestly, the copyright stuff confuses me, but I'll try to note the image licences that wikimedia uses when I borrow images from them.
