What gives ?
« on: March 13, 2003, 06:40:34 AM »
Now that was a surprise - no more little stars to indicate membership - just nice three barred crosses  :)

Whose idea was that ?

Yes - keep 'em please

I also think that the crosses are much better than the stars and a great improvement.

Congrats,

Well, the crosses ARRRRRE nice, but a Patriarch with FIVE!!!!! crosses?????  That makes me senior even to the Ecumenical Patriarch, doesn't it?  If so, I'll make you Archons of *MY* Patriarchal Throne, and all you have to do to receive this honor is to send donations to me c/o OrthodoxChristianity.netCommunity ASAP.    ;D  Y'all hurry now!   ;)

Ah Brother Dave,

I don't post for stature, only when the spirit prompts me to respond to interesting posts or if I have questions ;)

In Christ,
James

Oh no!  I'm now I'm trapped in some middle state.

Some have crosses and while the admins have stars.

I think I'm hallucinating Dr. Suess:  "The star belly sneetches had bellies with stars/ but the plain belly sneetches had none upon thars." ;D

Still seeing stars over here, but on another computer, there was both. What sort of funny business are you all trying to pull here?

hehe - Matt - who causes the trouble round here ? Does he have something against you ? Or is it your Computer that's trying to tell you something.

BTW James - congratulations on getting your second - no longer a newbie :D
