Dominika's Promotion and Serb1389's Non-Retirement
« on: July 04, 2017, 07:22:34 AM »
Good morning faithful denizens of OC.Net!

Our good friend and Global Moderator serb1389 has decided that he will be stepping aside, wishing to continue offering his services on the Forum but in a more hands-on and limited scope way.  After a brief "moderatorial vacation," he will be coming back once again as a section moderator.  We thank him for his service thus far, hope that his "vacation" is a good one, and look forward to his being back in action sometime after the Feast of the Dormition (RJC)!

With the need for a new Global Mod fresh in mind, the GM's (ongoing and outgoing) nominated Dominika for election based on her track record as a member and a mod - someone with good insight, a balanced approach to moderating, and who is well-respected by members and peers.  She was elected by the Admins, and has accepted the position... to which we say: AXIA!  WORTHY!  AXIA!

In the coming day(s) she and Liza will have the opportunity to realign their oversight of the boards (a process that happens each time a new GM comes on), and the updated alignment will be posted here: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,12447.msg391453.html#msg391453

We thank you all for your patience as we go through this leadership transition, and for your continued involvement in the community life here at OC.Net.  A blessed day to all!

Celebrating with some wine!

The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Actually, Mor's face shineth like the Sun.

Thank you all so much! :)

Haha, I'm also (and above all) the part of the crew, not just "dealing with", yeah, it's 5,5 years being the member :o (and a few more years following the forum)

Congratulations!   I've always loved your loving-kindness Dominika.  :)   Axia

I look forward to serb1389 returning; he really helped me out a few months back with some personal advice concering cyber-bullying, and taught me the concept of apatheia as a defense against becoming excessively upset over things.  A wonderful priest.

Worthy! It's always worthwhile to see what Dominika says about a given subject. Definitely a treasure of oc.net.

Welcome, Dominika!!!

I am looking forward to sharing the GM responsibilities with you!  ;)
