Thanks for sharing, Petros.

I noticed that you're using the CC BY-NC-SA licence, which isn't an open
knowledge or free content licence (although CC BY-SA is free and open).
Since freedom seems like an important part of your project, have you
considered switching licences? (For a number of reasons why NonCommercial
is an undesirable licence condition, you could check out this Freedom
Defined article <http://freedomdefined.org/Licenses/NC>).

Also, there doesn't appear to be any licence marker on your English site
(only on your Polish site). Is that site also meant to be Creative Commons

Looks like an interesting project,
