He has also been of great help providing technical and other invaluable assistance for making sure both the English and Russian sub-domains keep operating and can support their growing traffic.
* About them (about their contributions). Include belief system if available.
+
* {{user2|Lightyears}}: Lightyears created very detailed articles for several different topics including [[Dhul-Qarnayn]]. In his own words, he is "not interested in causing people who are happy believing in Islam to doubt their faith," but hopes that his work "will dissuade some Muslims from spreading mistaken claims and flawed arguments about science or mathematical miracles in the Qur’an."
* In their own words
+
* {{user2|Saggy}}: Saggy is interested in issues with the Qur'an and Hadith, such as [[Scientific Errors in the Quran|Scientific Errors in the Qur'an]]. Creator of the articles [[Scientific Errors in the Hadith]] and [[Lack of Detail in the Quran|Lack of Detail in the Qur'an]]
 +
* {{user2|Axius}}: Axius is an atheist humanist from the [[Americas]]. He is also the founder and administrator of WikiIslam. He has about 18,000 edits (approximately 20% of all edits; the 2<sup>nd</sup> highest) for various pages, many of them related to maintenance, administration, site interface and help. He is heavily involved in community building and decision making.
  
The religion or faith system of editors is not mentioned. We have editors from all backgrounds, religious and non-religious. <!-- Maybe we should mention religion. I think it will make the page more interesting and attract people of that religion more -->

==Editors/Contributors (Inactive/Unknown Status)==
 
+
* {{user2|Sahab}} {{small star}}: Sahab is a former Muslim now agnostic from [[Asia|South Asia]] who joined the wiki in April 2009 and became an administrator in 2011. Although not a Christian himself, his "positive experiences with them have left a lasting impression" and he considers Jesus Christ to be "the height of moral excellence." Politically he is "left-leaning" and responsible for the site's coverage of LGBT issues. He edited heavily for 5 years (from April 2009 to April 2014), accumulating 47,000 edits (50% of all edits) that touched almost every page on the site. He created several hundred original articles, various original media files and templates and many original series that span several hundred more pages. As an administrator, he quality-controlled most of the site's edits (copy-editing, correcting and expanding as necessary), helped with decision-making, guiding newer editors and dealt with many other day-to-day duties. He helped to formulate and write the majority of the site's policies and guidelines and helped shape the general direction of the site. Offsite, he helped promote the wiki and networked with others to import several hundred more pages worth of articles (most of these were also copy-edited, corrected and/or expanded by him). In short, he is the most significant contributor to the site as of August 2014 and basically made WikiIslam into what it is today.
