Igor, pdf27, 32Bravo and others probably already know this. But for those that don't...

I think that the difference between the Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox Church observance of Lent and Easter has to do with the calendars used by the respective Churches. Roman Catholic - Gregorian calendar. Russian Orthodox - Julian calendar.


Julian calendar
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_calendar

From Julian to Gregorian
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_calendar#From_Julian_to_Gregorian

The Julian calendar was in general use in Europe and Northern Africa from the times of the Roman Empire until 1582, when Pope Gregory XIII promulgated the Gregorian Calendar. Reform was required because too many leap days are added with respect to the astronomical seasons on the Julian scheme. On average, the astronomical solstices and the equinoxes advance by about 11 minutes per year against the Julian year. As a result, the calculated date of Easter gradually moved out of phase with the moon. While Hipparchus and presumably Sosigenes were aware of the discrepancy, although not of its correct value, it was evidently felt to be of little importance at the time of the Julian reform. However, it accumulated significantly over time: the Julian calendar gained a day about every 134 years. By 1582, it was ten days out of alignment.

The Gregorian Calendar was soon adopted by most Catholic countries (e.g. Spain, Portugal, Poland, most of Italy). Protestant countries followed later, and the countries of Eastern Europe even later. In the British Empire (including the American colonies), Wednesday 2 September 1752 was followed by Thursday 14 September 1752. For 12 years from 1700 Sweden used a modified Julian Calendar, and adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1753, but Russia remained on the Julian calendar until 1917, after the Russian Revolution (which is thus called the "October Revolution" though it occurred in Gregorian November), while Greece continued to use it until 1923. During this time the Julian calendar continued to diverge from the Gregorian. In 1700 the difference became 11 days; in 1800, 12; and in 1900, 13, where it will stay till 2100.

Although all Eastern Orthodox countries (most of them in Eastern or Southeastern Europe) had adopted the Gregorian calendar by 1927, their national churches had not. A revised Julian calendar was proposed during a synod in Constantinople in May 1923, consisting of a solar part which was and will be identical to the Gregorian calendar until the year 2800, and a lunar part which calculated Easter astronomically at Jerusalem. All Orthodox churches refused to accept the lunar part, so almost all Orthodox churches continue to celebrate Easter according to the Julian calendar (the Finnish Orthodox Church uses the Gregorian Easter).

The solar part of the revised Julian calendar was accepted by only some Orthodox churches. Those that did accept it, with hope for improved dialogue and negotiations with the Western denominations, were the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, the Patriarchates of Alexandria, Antioch, the Orthodox Churches of Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Poland, Bulgaria (the last in 1963), and the Orthodox Church in America (although some OCA parishes are permitted to use the Julian calendar). Thus these churches celebrate the Nativity on the same day that Western Christians do, 25 December Gregorian until 2800. The Orthodox Churches of Jerusalem, Russia, Macedonia, Serbia, Georgia, Ukraine, and the Greek Old Calendarists continue to use the Julian calendar for their fixed dates, thus they celebrate the Nativity on 25 December Julian (which is 7 January Gregorian until 2100). The Russian Orthodox Church has some parishes in the West which celebrate the Nativity on 25 December. Parishes of the Orthodox Church in America Bulgarian Diocese, both before and after the 1976 transfer of that diocese from the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia to the Orthodox Church in America, were permitted to use the December 25 date.

In Northern Africa, the Julian calendar (the Berber calendar) is still in use for agricultural purposes, and is called فلاحي fellāhī "peasant" or sاﻋﺠﻤﻲ acjamī "not Arabic". The first of yennayer currently corresponds to January 14 and will do so until 2100.


Gregorian calendar
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar

Adoption by Orthodox Churches
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar#Adoption_by_Orthodox_Churches

Despite all the civil adoptions, none of the national Orthodox Churches recognised it. Instead, a Revised Julian calendar was proposed in May 1923 which dropped 13 days in 1923 and adopted a different leap year rule. There will be no difference between the two calendars until 2800. The Orthodox churches of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, and Bulgaria adopted the Revised Julian calendar, so these New calendarists would celebrate the Nativity along with the Western churches on 25 December in the Gregorian calendar until 2800.

The Orthodox churches of Jerusalem, Russia, Serbia, Georgia, Poland and the Greek Old Calendarists did not accept the Revised Julian calendar. All these Old Calendarists continue to celebrate the Nativity on 25 December in the Julian calendar, which is 7 January in the Gregorian calendar until 2100.

All of the other Eastern churches, the Oriental Orthodox churches (Coptic, Ethiopian, Eritrean, Syrian, Armenian) and the Assyrian Church, continue to use their own calendars, which usually result in fixed dates being celebrated in accordance with the Julian calendar.

All Eastern churches continue to use the Julian Easter with the sole exception of the Finnish Orthodox Church, which has adopted the Gregorian Easter.


Difference between Gregorian and Julian calendar dates
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar#Difference_between_Gregorian_an d_Julian_calendar_dates

Since the introduction of the Gregorian calendar, the difference between Gregorian and Julian calendar dates has increased by three days every four centuries:

Excuse me?. What's this Herman busting business? You caught me off for one day when I was a bit overzealous about nukes and recommend RS with a medal for busting me?That's not nice. I am a changed man since them day's. I even contributed a few worthy threads since then. If anything, you should reccomend me for a medal for being a nice person who never uses vulgar langauge on the site; unlike some people:shock:

RS can be awarded for FOR THAT "ONE" DAY when you were a "bit overzealous":)
But you can do so that RS will no more get the medals for "busting the Hermann" in future:)

A fire suppression system appears to have been set off somehow, flooding a compartment with inert gas and asphyxiating a number of those inside. IIRC 17 of the 20 are dockyard workers rather than naval personnel.

Oh, and the submarine was being refitted prior to being transferred to India on long-term lease...

I heard there were a special Oxygen gas-mask exaclty for such a case for every man of crew ( if the fire suppression system starts to flood the Freon). Those people simply have not used the mask , by the strgange reason.
One of two- or they did no have enough time to use the mask , or there were no enought masks for all members of crew.

I reccomend Flamethrower for a medal because he always has kind and gentle responses to even stupid posts and is not so crititical as some of the others (Not mentioning any names)
Lastly, I reccomend Schuultz for a medal cause he makaes the forum posts worthwhile to read and he's not so bland like some others. He gives some spice to the forum is what Im trying to say.

For my exception speech, first of all I want to take this opportunity to thank The Forum creator for allowing this Beautiful site to continue and operate. Secondly I would like to Thank the great Mods we have on this site: The Notoriously,Exceptionally Brilliant Rising Sun, the temperamental but exceedingly precise and accurate PDF and Nickdfresh; the extremely kind worded and passionate Flamethrower Guy and the silent Mods who are always there too. I am at a loss for words to express how I have waited so long for the opportunity and day that I would actually be deserving of a medal. I am almost speechless. I have learnt so much from this forum and I have become addicted to daily reading of the various threads. On dayís that it is slow, I actually wonder what the Gang is doing and why they havenít posted anything. I still marvel how some have so much time to post and wish I could post more intelligent comments, other than in the Off Topic threads.

Hello my friend :) I'm sorry about the error the phrase caused.
Call it Brit-style upbringing, wherein one is guided to being at times overly courteous, which is why the "or such other" phrase was included in my post. Simply put: my intent had been to recommend, but not dictate to the moderators.

The following member has often been a voice of reason, and gentle enlightenment. He has consistently been polite and very decent. I regard him as a positive asset to the forum. Accordingly,

I Recommend Amrit:
All-round good Posting Medal,
Loyal Member Medal,
Good Conduct Medal.

My reasons are as above, in the opening paragraph of this post.
I also take here the opportunity to Thank Amrit for educating me, and doubtless certain other members, in the basics of the rich Spiritual Traditions of which he is clearly a fine representative.
I do realise a Recommendation for three medals at once will be viewed as very unusual.
However: in regard to Amrit I genuinely feel he deserves all three medals, and that being so, `tis simply equitable that he receive all three at once, in my humble opinion.
Accordingly, I ask for a Seconder, please.

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

I recommend Librarian :

All round good posting medal,
Loyal Member Medal.

In various threads throughout this forum Librarian has not only educated, and often amused,
but provided vast quantities of data and illustrations, many of which are rarely if ever seen. That alone makes him more than worthy of receiving a Forum Medal, imho.

Accordingly, I ask for a Seconder, please.

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

To my shame, I cannot recall R. Leonard offhand.
I blame recent events on the homefront for that, and apologise accordingly.
However, I do know TG to be of sound judgement in these matters.
Therefore:
R.Leonard : Seconded.

TG, Many Thanks for your Second in re Amrit and Librarian. :)

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

Occasional but good poster.

Seconded. Or thirded, after Uyraell.

I'm too tired and too short of time to formulate recommendations for specific medals, but the following deserve recognition for sustained and quality posts:

Chevan
Egorka
Wizard

Seconded: Chevan, Egorka, Wizard.
Respectful Recommendations: All-round good posting Medal, & Loyal Member Medal.

RS*, I hope the above is appropriate to what you may have had in mind.

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

I Recommend Rudeerude, and FlameThrowerGuy, each to receive:

Outstanding Idea Medal,
Outstanding Site Service Medal.

In a visually stunning series of posts, Rudeerude has put together a set of "Now and Then" images that as far as I'm aware are unique.
FlameThrowerGuy has done certain location work to assist Rudeerude, and thus merits recognition as well.

It is rare to see such a series of contrasting images yet so fully depicting the events of the era and the modern setting.
The effort it takes to put these images together is more than considerable, and the results are astounding.

Accordingly, I ask for a Seconder, please?

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

O RLY?

I'll nominate Uyraell for the all-around good posting medal for posting kind things pretty much everywhere.


all-around good posting medal
-given to any member that has repeatedly posted valuable information on the site

Also, second the above two mentions.

Ok here is a once in a lifetime opportunity ....... cause I dont believe in sudden glory. The 1st person to add up all the medals deserved (means seconded) ..... vs those that have been awarded here http://www.ww2incolor.com/forum/showthread.php?5607-Awards-List! ...... will get the Site service medal. Or a higher award if you have that one already. We are far behind and this needs to get going again. See who needs what award and make sure it has not already been awarded. I will take care of the rest. Just publish the list here. Thanks!

I don't know how accurate the figures will be(at least one off, I was awarded two medals yet am only shown having one on the list), but 121 medals are listed as awarded, and 149(give or take 5 for Herman's silliness) were nominated.*

I'm unsure about the nominations because I didn't see much seconding from the first to sixth pages, and then weirdness happened from the 17th to the 23rd pages(or something around those).

C'mon folks, time is running out,(for all of the membership that hasn't yet done so) if you feel that a site member should be awarded one of our very fine, distinctive, and coveted medals, now is the time to make recommendations. Specify the member, the award you wish them to receive, and the efforts they have made, listing the appropriate forum. So easy, even a caveman, or 2nd Lieutenant(maybe) can do it.
Please check the list (should be in this thread someplace,) to be sure they do not already hold the award you are considering.
These awards are very collectible, and while we cannot say that they will increase in value, we can say that they have never diminished.

What happened to here? There was a huge tornado of nominating and seconding, then, nothing... XD

Uyraell

Some of us have yet to understand whether or even if recommendations were acted upon by Forum Admins.
I certainly have no clue about that, as none I recommended seem to have received their medals, nor have I seen anything in my forum "inbox" suggesting I may show the medal I was so generously recommended for.

The natural result of such lack of information is that people will cease posting to this thread until they know what is happening to whom, and by what processes.
Frankly, I can understand folk being reticent currently, as I am in like case, regarding this thread.

As for the other forum threads: quite simply, life's little details have kept me absent for a while.

Warm and Respectful Regards Churchill my friend, Uyraell.

Here's hoping, my friend :)
I agree, some form of action needs to happen if this thread and its' purpose is to remain in vivo.

It wasn't a specifically aimed "dig" but at same time, matters in this thread had been in abeyance a while, in so far as membership was aware.

Hi pdf27,
i started to visit the pictures section of this Site last April and last monday i joined the Forum too. I spent the last three days in editing avatar, profile picture, signature of my site in the Forum and wandering around the threads, just to form an idea about the people and the topics of this beautiful Site. I had the chance to get in contact with some guys that uploaded, commented and colorized many pictures, and to visit their sites. When i've seen for the first time those kind of badge, just below their signature, i've been thinkin' that it would be nice to ask to some members where i can find these decoration... In my evening scouting i found this thread with your explanation and the full list of the awarded. Thanks a lot. I think it's a fantastic system to reward the members according to their merit. I hope i'll be able to give my little contribution to the matter. Best regards to everybody.

1. I recommend myself for a medal (imi) :D

2. Outstanding Post Medal

3. Because I made one of the most readed overall topic in the ww2incolor forum from the city siege of the Budapet Battle
The topic started in 09-25-2010 and made 132,023 views and five gold star rated until today (06-15-2015)

4. http://www.ww2incolor.com/forum/showthread.php/11054-The-Budapest-Siege?

ps

I love to have a a german iron cross! :P

Would you not want Hungarian ones for your thread?

Took me ages to read through it the first time and you keep adding to it

:D If you interested in the battle, just only a few days to read the whole topic

The Budapest Siege topic is the most detailed topic in the whole internet with many unpublished photos, because the hungarian capitol siege is one of my favourite World War 2 battle, I think is very exciting subject and I work a lot of hours to make it

132,023 view, and five gold star rate in this forum is a great honor for me, and thank you for all who read the topic!

If someone from Hungary honored me a hungarian medal I accept with great respect, but my dream is a german iron cross first class, from Germany, I think that is a real recognition :army:

Sorry but I regret to say: in these days Hungary, is a state of hard foreign profiteering and looks like criminal terrorists manage the whole country and this managing is for the downfall for the fine hungarian minds
A hungarian badge today is equal value of this situation: almost zero

I starting now a similar topic in the next few days, called "Hungarian University Students In The Budapest Battle"
That topic will also contain interesting information from the brave nationalist university students who leaving the school benches to made a fast training and fight together in the first lines with the Wehrmacht and Waffen SS try to defend the hungarian capitol from the outnumbered Red Army (the situation in some points remind me a little bit of the movie "All Quiet in the Western Front'' by Erich Maria Remarque 1930 or 1979 edition)
After one and half months and after run out ammo and supply,they made a embittered outbreak from the city and try to reach the western german lines on foot, others captured and being a prisoner of war, their story will be included in the upcoming topic

I had thought that this medals business had falling into abeyance. In any case, I second imi's (self) nomination. The "Budapest" thread is most impressive and informative. A subject about which I wish I knew more. Best regards, JR.

Contributors overdue for recognition for sustained and useful contributions include (there are others that haven't sprung to mind at the moment, to whom I apologise) are, in random order:

gumalangi
JR*

Then there are others who make only occasional but useful appearances such as royal744; garm1and; DVX; burp and sundry others.

I'll leave it to others to add to, or subtract from,this list.
