Not bad idea - your site could summarize all proverbs already created, so it will be easier to read them and browse.

Some corrections:
in English part you used forum url forum.learrnavi.com -> should be .org
Na'vi part:
Ma Na'vi tawtute,

Furia nga za'u fitsenge oe 'efu nitram Za'u is intransitive, so no case ending. Being happy is inner feeling, which we express with help of 'efu + adjective. And fwa is not correct here, topical is good.
Za'u run lì'fyati leNa'vi fa aylì'fyavi. Zola'u nìprrte, ayhapxìtu a ftu forum.learnna'vi.org.
Construction with two verbs one next to one is not very usual (except modal constructions), but it is correct here -  it works like "ulte" is between them

Ke Rä'ä lu nim ulte zeyko aylì'fyavit txo kxeyeyit tsive'a fu sung mipa aylì'fyavit mì Na'vi. (Don't be shy and correct proverb if you see mistakes or add new proverb in Na'vi)
As it is command, use rä'ä instead of ke. To make something correct we use zeyko

Srake lu ngaru tìpawm a teri Na'vi fu pìlok? Pawm oeru tsat nìmal mì forum.learnnavi.org (oeru syaw my name is Na'vi a Kepekmì). (Do you have a question regarding Na'vi or blog?)

Eywa ngahu.

Good attempt ! :)

In English, I speak to the Skyperson, In na'vi I speak to the na'vies.

Yeah, but we are not Na'vi, we're unfortunately not part of the Na'vi people, we're skypeople, so tawtute/sawtute would indeed be better imho, regardless which language you're using.

I can confirm that I was referring to using that root word tute instead of na'vi or tawtute. not necessarily to use the singular. :D

sheesh. we get the point already, bro.

Have a +1 on me.

Lu oeru Ikran. Fì'ikran lu oeru, ke ngaru, talun ''ru'' a oel yamen mì ''oe''.
Is to me an Ikran. This ikran is mine, not your, because of the ''ru'' which I put in ''oe''.

(The only mistake I think is about the Fì' added to ''ikran'')

Don't think only to do something that you want, when you can do it. Do it!
I wouldn't say it is correct. "fpìl kemot" is "think some action", what sounds strange. Actions are being done, not thought.
My attempt:
Rä'ä fpìl nì'aw teri kemo a ngal new sivi, krra tsun tsakem sivi nga. Tsakem si!
Don't only think about something you want to do when you can to do it. Do it!

some explanation:
- pronouns ending to -ng are shortenings of -nga. This -nga must appear when case ending is added
- genitive of every pronouns ends with -eyä (final -a in -nga pronouns changes into -e)
