A welcome and FYI for our new members!
« on: April 21, 2008, 08:47:23 AM »
Over the last two months we've had quite the stream of new members join the site.  Welcome to all of you!  I hope you all have been getting acclimated to the site, finding topics that interest you, maybe a healthy debate or two as well.  In order to make sure that we're all on the "same page," I thought I'd post a few points of interest for everyone to check out:

1. We have a thread dealing with Board policies (in addition to what you saw during your registration process).  It is located in the Board News section, and covers a wide variety of situations.  Here is the link: "Read Me!  Compiled Board policies, information points, etc." -,13455.0.html

2. Robert is looking into a site upgrade, and has posted a beta version for people to test out.  Some of you who are very new may not have your user accounts on the Beta site, but you can sign up for one (and everything done on the beta site is independent of the main site).  We're looking for input regarding the new-er format, useability, etc.  Here is the link: "OC.NET BETA TEST" -,15277.0.html

3. Thanks to all who donated to our donation drive.  If you would like to see the updates, and any more information that will be forthcoming, check out the donation drive thread:,13300.0.html

Again, we hope you have found to be a wonderful community, struggling to perfect ourselves in our Faith, working and learning together towards that end.  If you have any questions, comments, etc. - don't hesitate to contact a member of the Moderation staff by PM, or start a new thread!

Wishing everyone a blessed Holy Week and a Joyful Pascha,

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
