IXOYE, thank you for faithfully continuing to post this.

All, we do appreciate your continued donations. I'm sorry I haven't fixed the donation button yet. I am planning to upgrade the forum or even go to a different forum software (similar in function, but with better support), so it just didn't make sense to spend time trying to fix this one issue at this time.

Rest assured that any donations go directly to me, I use them to pay for server and hosting costs, and they are ALWAYS appreciated.

In Christ,
Anastasios

Glad to hear that, I donated some money awhile ago but wasn't sure you received it as the donation tracker didn't change.

Although I would like to. There has not been a  contrite apology for the editorial promoting a person who in my mind, now, is more evil than I could have ever imagined.
I am sorry about this. I wish it were not so.

I don't access the frontpage, but go directly to the forum when I visit the site.  So I do not see any articles outside of the forum.

It's not for you to answer for, anyway, IXOYE.  Thank you for what you do. 
Enough, everyone else.  Start a protest thread in Politics if you have a grievance to air, Opus.  --Ainnir

Demanding an apology is one of the weakest things a person can do.
When you are weak and a pacifist, this is all one can do Hecma.
Opus, you are part of "everyone else," and enough means "stop."  I'm giving you a 10% warning for not heeding the verbal warning.  If you'd like to appeal this decision, you may do so via PM.  --Ainnir

Good evening!  Just an informational note: the site's donations list on the "Donations" tab above still is not synced with the PayPal account, so you don't really see who / how many donations have gone in lately.  Anastasios still receives the money, and applies it only to OC.net expenses.  Thank you all for your support!

Just logging in here after quite some time.

What do you want me to do, apologize for having an opinion that differs from yours? What exactly do you want me to do, change the way I think? Do you think it's right to demand that I apologize and change the way I think? I removed the article almost 2 years ago. Why do you demand I apologize for something I believe in?

I keep this site running, even though I don't agree with quite a lot of what is posted here.

Thank you for continuing to do this.

The site currently costs $49.99 a month. The new server we are migrating to costs about $70/month.

I know the donate button has been messed up for years. The forum software has just not been kept up-to-date.

Thanks to our technical support volunteer, we are migrating to better options. Fixing the donation system will be one of our priorities.

I receive all the donations in my PayPal and ONLY use them for maintaining this site.

In Christ,
Anastasios

We are about to switch over to the new software, and all this is quite expensive, so donations are indeed appreciated.  By the way, if anyone has donated but this is not reflected in your status, feel free to let me know.

Thank you, IXOYE, as always.

Friends, I am just logging in to post here so you know I'm alive and well. Fr. George is quite capably running the site, and Alpha60 is helping us tremendously in our move to the new software (thanks also to Story for the design input). If it seems like it's "dragging on," it's because as we have been rolling this out, we have found issues with this or that platform, this or that provider, etc. We are just not willing to accept "second best" here; given the gravity of the move, we are going to get this right. But rest assured, we are near finishing the migration.

To reiterate, yes, I only use the funds donated for this site. In the past, whenever there were issues, I covered the gap to the tune of several hundred dollars. When I was without children, that was no issue, but I have five wonderful children nowadays, so I do have to make ends meet ;) Sever costs have gone up as well, etc. Yet, to this day, any money donated is only used for the purpose of keeping this site afloat.

We tend to receive donations regularly, and they more or less cover the costs. We have, however, had to expand and upfront some money for the transition and upgrades, so we are a bit behind.

If everyone could donate $5 via paypal, we would basically be covered for 20 years! But of course, we know that won't happen. Could we therefore ask that people donate $10, $15, $20, or in a few cases, $50 or $100 via paypal? Or mail a check? Or if it's just $3, mail cash? If you wish, you will be designated in your profile as a Site Supporter (if you previously donated and did not get this designation, please let Alpha60 know).

Thanks for your time, and thank YOU all for making this site the best Orthodox Christian forum of ALL TIME!!! Facebook may have lots of nice groups, but nothing will ever beat OCNET!!!! :)
