Moderator Retirements, Moves, and Elections
« on: March 13, 2011, 12:28:18 AM »
On behalf of the Administration and Moderation team of OC.net:

We are saddened to announce the retirement of three of our moderators who have served our forum well.  Ytterbiumanalyst and EofK retired from moderation a few months ago, and NorthernPines just recently, although none of the three are leaving OC.net.  We wish to thank them for their wonderful service to the forum, and we continue to look forward to their contributions to the OC.net community.

In light of these retirements, and in order to better serve our community, we have elected a few new moderators, and have moved a few existing ones.

Moving to the Orthodox-Protestant Forum will be long-time moderator (and former Protestant) PeterTheAleut.  Moving to assist with moderation in the Faith Issues forum will be our "night watchman" Michał Kalina.

Elected to also fill the Faith Issues moderation vacancy (since it is the most active part of OC.net) is LizaSymonenko.

Elected to fill the Free-For-All: Religious Topics forum is Second Chance.

Elected to watch over the General Fora (Board News, Christian News, Prayer, Reviews, and Technical Issues) is serb1389 (who will only be listed on the front page as moderator of Christian News, but will be looking over all the fora in the General section).

We hope that you will join us in proclaiming our new moderators as "AXIOI - WORTHY!" and we hope you will continue 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.

It's very tiring to be a moderator, so sometimes people need to resign from that role for other obligations.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.
