Retirement of Cyrillic from Moderation
« on: February 03, 2014, 12:49:02 PM »
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the retirement from moderation of Cyrillic, our Other Topics Mod.

On behalf of the Admins and Moderators, I thank you, Cyrillic, for your service to the forum, and for being a good and productive member of this community for a long time.
"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"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

What a shame. He's not leaving the forum, though, is he?

Cyrillic was a great and fair moderator.  His skills will be missed.

I understand that he will NOT be leaving the Forum, however, personal responsibilities require him to spend less time online.

I wish you all the best in everything you do.

God bless!!!

Unfortunate. Cyrillic did a fanstastic job as moderator.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

More people complain about your retirement than about your job as a moderator.  I'd say that counts as success!

Sorry your stepping down. I wish you well in your other endeavors.

I didn't notice his moderating really, which is probably a sign that he did a good job.
