So Peter has added me as an administrator to revamp the site. I've looked over the control panel.
Right now, I'm going to leave the blogs on, because that seems to be the center of the OCD community, and also because it seems the best way to give you guys updates. Eventually I want to remove the social media aspect of the site, but for now I'm going to leave it.
The first thing I want to do is find a way to hide users who don't have pictures in their profiles. If I can't hide them, then I'll... Read full post
I used to visit here regularly. Dating as an EOC is difficult, after all. But now I stop in once every few weeks on the gamble that there might be something. Why? Because just as OCD was beginning to get really good, the whole thing has gone downhill due to systemic issues. And what easy things can be done to fix it?
1) It's been taken over by spammers.

The news was released today and I wanted to share
Having read "Wounded By Love" and his life and other of his writings I can't wait for them to be republished now as being by "St. Porphyrios" :)
For me, he is the one Saint I know of who was alive in the body during my life time - though I'm sure Elder Paisios will follow him soon in being recognized as a Saint of our Church :)
