Un concept cheie al funcționării OrthodoxWiki este "punctul de vedere neutru" (neutralitatea), concept împrumutat de pe Wikipedia și adaptat pentru a-l face conform comunității și mărturisirii noastre de credință ortodoxe.
Further, articles on [[:Category:Non-Orthodox|Non-Orthodox Christian]] religious groups, while necessarily including some general description of those groups, should have as their primary content the relationship and history of that group in relation to the [[Orthodox Church]]. For the encyclopedic purposes of '''OrthodoxWiki''', Non-Chalcedonian and non-Mainstream churches which identify themselves as Orthodox and are not "self-starters" (i.e., taking the name ''Orthodox'' to themselves without any historic origin in the Orthodox Church) will be considered to be Orthodox in terms of categorization and article content—that is, they do not have to be included in [[:Category:Non-Orthodox]] or focus their article content primarily on their relationship to the Mainstream Chalcedonian churches (though of course that should be covered).
Episcopi vagantes| Vagante]] groups with no history of being within the Mainstream, Chalcedonian Orthodox Church or any substantial history of interaction with it ( thus affecting its history), while occasionally being mentioned on '''OrthodoxWiki''' , will not have articles dedicated to them.
===Ce nu înseamnă PCP===
Pentru motive administrative, între altele. '''OrthodoxWiki''' este deținut și operat de un preot al [[Orthodox Church in America]], o Biserică Ortodoxă calcedoniană care aparține grupului de Biserici amintite. De asemeni, având în vedere cele afirmate mai sus, vedem că trebuie să existe o convenție de redactare a conținutului, pentru a nu lăsa loc unor "bătălii" privind denumirile și redenumirea de articolelor, făcând din '''OrthodoxWiki''' un câmp de luptă. Aceasta deoarece '''OrthodoxWiki''' este, până la urmă, editabil de oricine deține un computer și o conexiune la Internet.
Additionally, the administration feels that the bias is warranted along what might be termed "definitional usage" lines—that is, the rest of the world, when looking for information about Orthodoxy, tends to think definitionally in MCB terms. That is, it would probably look for an article on the [[Church of Russia]] (i. e., the Moscow Patriarchate) rather than one on the so-called [[Suzdalites]] when searching for "Russian Orthodoxy." Thus, the MCB helps prevent confusion.
Of course, the MCB cannot prevent all confusion or conflict, but we hope that it will help. Where extra attention needs to be paid, extra care will be taken when the time comes. We ask you that, while we are certainly trying to be ''Orthodox'', we take special care also to be ''Christian''.
==Personal and Community pages== Personal opinions may be expressed on "User" and "User_Talk" pages, which are not subject to NPOV. It is understood that these pages may represent the personal views of their authors. All conversation should be kept civil, however. Also, not everything is allowed on personal pages. For example, anything that is clearly unorthodox will be removed or edited. Final say in all these matters rests with the administrator(s).
Although user pages may be edited, OrthodoxWiki administration does not, of course, have the right to change users own words in such a way as to misrepresent what they are saying about themselves. We may edit or even censor, but we won't twist.
Community pages tend to represent what we might call the "Community Point of View, " a mentality which has developed through interaction with the various personalities and circumstances of the OrthodoxWiki community. Often, it will be the voice of practical wisdom that comes from involvement in this kind of wiki project.
Thus, OrthodoxWiki may be envision as a grouping of spaces, some personal, some community-oriented, and some more documentary, of a public character. == See also==*[[OrthodoxWiki: Style Manual]]
