(Dateline---OC.net Palace)

The ever present crowds milling about in the courtyard of the OC.net palace grounds were rewarded with yet more wisps of white smoke ascending from the chimney of FrChris' office/brewpub. Wondering at what new and marvelous changes were to be revealed to the populace, they gathered under the balcony to listen to yet another speech by FrChris:

"With profound regret, I have had to accept the resignation of Αριστοκλής, who delayed his resignation  specifically for the purpose of assisting us at OC.net. His sacrifice is truly appreciated by us all, and we thank him profoundly..."

The crowd roared its approval of this sacrifice Αριστοκλής has made on behalf of all reading this announcement, knowing that it inconvenienced Αριστοκλής greatly but that he bore this burden so that others may profit from participating in this site!

A solitary figure was ushered forward, his hand held aloft by the Admins on...

"The new Free For All Moderator is...

Veniamin

The crowd roared its approval it this selection:

AXIOS! AXIOS! AXIOS!

AXIOS.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
