Moderator Retirement and Move
« on: September 05, 2011, 02:24:29 PM »
We are saddened to announce the retirement of one of our moderators who has served our forum well.  Schultz is retiring as the moderator for the Orthodox-Catholic forum, although he won't be leaving us here on OC.net completely.  Please take a moment to thank him for his service to the forum, and we continue to look forward to his contributions to the OC.net community.

In light of this retirement, and in order to better serve our community, we have decided to move username! over to the Orthodox-Catholic forum.

We hope that you will join us in continuing to pray for all the moderators of our forum, as we try our best to facilitate good discussion for the growth of our community and our members individually.

Sorry to hear that. Thanks for your time, Schultz.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Schultz, you leave large shoes to fill!

Wishing you all the best in your "retirement"!  :)

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

At 6'4" that can probably be taken literally  :D

Seriously though, thanks :) You seemed very even-handed when dealing with the sometime volatile situations in that section.

Sad news on a rainy day!!...<sigh>

Thanks for all the hard work, Schultz!!...

Thanks for all the considerations you've given to me personally!!  I have come to appreciate it deeply.

Thanks for the patience and sweat/tears.

Don't be a stranger!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Thank you, one and all.  I must admit, logging on just now and NOT seeing the moderator section in my feed brought a very large smile to my face.  As Veniamin noted, I'll still be around.

Thank you again and may the good Lord have mercy on username! ;)

Dear Schultz, - you have been such a wonderful, kind, cheerful, humorous, supportive friend, both on this site and on Facebook. Many thanks for everything you do. Enjoy your "retirement," and be sure that folks like this rogue poster need you around.

On the contrary, one never knows when a random sucking up will pay off in a big way. So tis prudent to engage in such activity whenever and wherever possible!

Glad that you are still around.

I wish you were still on the mod squad. You did add balance.

Thank you moderator team, administrative team and posters, members, browsers, inquirers and those seeking to debate.  I was the Other Topics moderator for several years and now I am moving over to the Orthodox-Catholic forum. I look forward to being your moderator and I will serve you all in the best capacity that I can!  -Username!

Just kidding.  I don't post on the Orthodox-Catholic forum, so it won't be all that bad!
