5597Re: The lowly Rocor website
- Feb 1 7:55 AMYesterday, or was it now two days ago, there began a discussion about the ROCOR
website. I did not post then, because I didn't really want to share my
ignorance. However, using two other wonders of modern communication
technology - the telephone and fax machine - I did talk with those actually
responsible for the website and information dissemination. As a result, I am no
longer as ignorant as I was (although I still have a long way to go....). The
ROCOR is replacing the old website with a completely new one, and we have
engaged a professional website designer to create and program the new site. It
is taking some time because it is a monumental task and the level of quality is
high. This new website will be well organized and will be available fully in at
least two languages (Russian and English) in its entirety (I don't know about
Spanish, French, German, etc - because I am too short sighted to have asked the
question yesterday). Due to the overwhelming nature of this task, the website
won't go up "piecemeal" but rather the replacement will occur all at once, when
it is ready.
It is important to remember that the current website was not an official effort
of the ROCOR, but rather a monumental individual effort by Fr Seraphim Holland
who created and maintained the site with little more support than the blessing
of his diocesan bishop. To Fr Seraphim, we owe a great debt of gratitude for
the effort that he put forth to create the original ROCOR website.
So to you all, I suggest patience. Our Synod is aware of the importance of a
quality website, they are working on creating it and as soon as it is finished,
it will be put into place.
