Title: Welcome Back to Byzantines.org--Now OrthodoxChristianity.net!
Post by: Anastasios on October 03, 2002, 02:10:06 AM
Hello, all, I'd just like to welcome you back to Byzantines.org -- now OrthodoxChristianity.net!

Bobby left for Italy but guess what--he didn't send me the correct files to set up the old board when he left, so I had to figure out how to set up this board by myself! And I am NOT a computer expert!

Please reregister.  I will shortly add the old forums back.  When Bobby visits next time, we will try to get all the old discussions added back to the board.

By the way, if anyone has byzantines.org files in their browser cache (go to tools, internet options, settings, view files and then click on the sort by internet address; see if you have any http://www.byzantines.org stuff--and if you do, email it as an attatchment to a n a s t a s i o s 0513@yahoo.com (I didnt put this all together because internet spam machines will get my email--simply erase the spaces).

Welcome Back!  Feel free to post whatever, and I will move the threads.

In Christ,

anastasios

We're back! WooHoo!

Anastasios,

We have some serious image degredation on that logo. You might want to grab the version from the portal and use that when you upload it, as its much better quality. God Bless!

Nik,

I see that there is degredation (doesn't seem THAT bad though!) because I had to convert the jpeg to gif.  I am new at this stuff so I have to find the part of the software where I can change the path to the logo--I just renamed your graphic the logo and uploaded it over the default one!

IN Christ,

Anastasios:

Grat to see that you finally have the site back up and running.  It was missed, believe me.
Like both the logo and the new name.
Maybe I will get to see you at St Vlad's this Saturday.
Will you be working in the bookstore?

Dear Anastasios,

     Just grab download the logo from http://stanosheck.com/orthodox/logo.gif and upload it to the place where you have the present logo.

     As far as how bad the current is, I guess I'm just more sensitive since I do this kind of stuff for a living. God Bless!

  :) Glad to see we're back up and running, Anastasios!  This forum was missed, believe me.  I kept pestering Orthoman/Orthodoc as to what had happened/why the delay, etc.

Anyway, congratulations, Anastasios, in successfully getting us back up on the web.  I like the new name too.

MANY YEARS!

Dear In Christ,

I will be tending the Bookstore at St Vlad's on Education Day (how did you know, Orthodoc?) along with several other great people.  I also will be singing in the choir as a second Tenor.  I am a young guy with a beard (that helps, right  :P )!

I'd be happy to meet any of you!

In Christ,

I have been reading over the posts on the various threads--and am grateful for the kind replies to my post--and I want to say that so far, this board is exactly what I have been looking for.  I've subscribed to some of the email lists but so few of them are very helpful, either debating jurisdictional issues or focused on a critique of ecumenism.  As an inquirer, I need to know of the broad and detailed matters of the faith that Orthodox have as a common whole.

Thanks for welcoming me.

I love that site.  I lurk on occasion, and don't really read through most of the meaty topics due to a lack of time (I find that I really have to read slowly there in order to understand some things).  One day, I hope to actually sit in front of my screen and devote all of my time to reading the threads there.  

But I'll be back before Vespers...

Mor Ephrem and Bobby. Nigula Qian Zishi was involved very early on as an admin, but wasn't a founder.

Post by: Asteriktos on May 05, 2014, 07:20:00 PM
I was mistaken about Nigula Qian Zishi (aka Nik), but here is a short summary...

I will author a comprehensive document later since there is interest but suffice it to say...

Robert and I desired to make a website to promote Eastern Christianity and continue our knowledge of the Orthodox Church (we were Byzantine Catholics back then, and wanted to promote Church unity between Eastern Christians).  In 2001 we bought the domain byzantines.org (inspiration was from byzantines.net and byzcath.org) and started there.  Nothing really came about until Robert and I were sitting in a car discussing making a webforum.  Robert and I knew Philip (Mor Ephrem) from byzcath.org and so Philip was interested in the project as well. We went live on May 12, 2002.

Byzantines.org survived until September 2002 when Robert went to Italy.  While he was gone, Philip and I recruited Nik Stanosheck (now Fr Dcn Nikolai) to be the third administrator and we decided to make it a truly Orthodox-oriented website instead of "pan Byzantine Rite" since those professing such views could easily go to byzcath.org to post, renaming the site orthodoxchristianity.net on October 2, 2002. Nik was on the path to officially becoming Orthodox, and I was now at St Vladimir's Seminary studying about Orthodoxy to make my decision (yeah, I go all the way when I am interested in something).

Robert returned from Italy after some changes in plans and resumed duties as an Administrator.  Soon Nik decided to make a website that was more oriented towards traditionalist views, so he resigned to focus on his site euphrosynoscafe.com.

By 2003, we started to add on a moderation team since we could not handle it by ourselves, and over the next few years the current structure came into being.  In 2006, Philip resigned and we added Fr. Chris as an administrator. Over the years, both Robert and I became Orthodox officially.

Now we are just trying to develop content and the forum to be the best it can be.

It's hard to believe that I've been here for almost 9 years. I can't even remember when I became a moderator..I'm guessing 7 years ago or so. I was the other topics mod.  Then maybe 5 years ago I took over as Orthodox Catholic mod. I've known some of you for almost a decade. Some I know off the forum.
A former mod invited me to her parish as I was Greek Catholic when I signed up for membership at oc.net. I visited and never went back becoming Orthodox Holy Saturday 2006 joining at that particular parish. The former mod and her husband are still very dear friends.
I guess therefore oc.net is a part of my life.

You might also peruse www.monachos.net


I love that site.  I lurk on occasion, and don't really read through most of the meaty topics due to a lack of time (I find that I really have to read slowly there in order to understand some things).  One day, I hope to actually sit in front of my screen and devote all of my time to reading the threads there. 

But I'll be back before Vespers...
Mor, have you had the opportunity to read all the threads on monachos.net yet? What were your thoughts on them?

I used to post a lot on monachos but it's really died out and, looking back on it, there were some really interesting discussions but too often people were willing to fall back on rote answers to a lot of hard questions. I like OC.net better now.

I used to read Monachos a lot too.  There were some really helpful threads.  Then the site crashed.  Now it is a memorial site, a graveyard of good information.

I miss Justin Kissel.  His thread resurrections were more full of conviction than yours.

I miss him too. I am naught but a poor substitute.  :'(

Is Asteriktos (Justin Kissel) dead or disappeared? Or does he just not post anymore?

He takes leaves of absence. He has always come back. Hopefully, we will see him soon, he is one of my favorite forumers.
