Very frequently, posters ask for a definition of an acronym, or for a translation from Greek into English, or for a basic definition of a theological term.
One can go to the Wiktionary for a full-fledged online dictionary, or he can go to OrthodoxWiki for an excellent encyclopedia reference. But oftentimes these resources are not convenient to users of our site, and requests for definitions have continued here in threads long after the introduction of the above resources.
Therefore I would like to develop a local Orthodox Wiktionary with limited scope to be created by users of this site to define acronyms, give dictionary (as opposed to encyclopedic) definitions to key terms, and provide translations of common Orthodox words.
If anyone is familiar with wiki software and would be interested in assisting me with this effort, please send me a private message. I can easily install the software, but need assistance importing the basic Wiktionary templates and will need someone to watch the project long term.
To reiterate, I am not interested in trying to compete with OrthodoxWiki, but rather to provide a very limited dictionary system to support users of this site.
