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.

What a shame. He's not leaving the forum, though, is he?
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Read this before the OP. That was scary.
You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

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!!!

Cyrillic was a great mod.  :'(

Many years!
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Unfortunate. Cyrillic did a fanstastic job as moderator.

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

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