Forum members dying?!
 
Hey everyone,

I have been meaning to make this thread for months now but I didn't know what the general response would be. I think of this a lot and sometimes it actually bothers me. In another thread I mentioned Stokes and when he faked his death and it got me thinking about forum members ACTUALLY passing away. I am no fan of talking about death so thats not why I made this. It isn't suppose to be any form of disrespect or anything.

I have been here a long time and I have seen many great members just dissappear, I know that 99% of the time they just never come back, life takes over or they grow out of the online community. However, ovbiously death happens all around us, it happens all the time. Joining an online community doesn't make you immune to death, have you ever thought that maybe the person passed away?

It happens all the time in our world, but on online forums the general concensus is just "He must just be busy"

People die at work, in their home, car accidents... I could go on forever... What about people here who just dissappear? This isn't meant to talk about SPECIFIC members, so I would like to keep from that, just the general topic.

Thoughts?

A bit off topic, but since you mentioned it.. Was it Stokes who faked his death? Wasn't it his relative or something like that, when Stokes was out of town?

It was apparently his brother, but I wouldn't like to talk about that in this thread.

just the idea in general.

There has been a few times when a member is knowingly in a dangerous situation and I almost felt like asking for more personal information, for what reason I do not know.

When Oldfan had the hurricane, when the guy I asked about a while back who had forest fires outside his house(haven't heard from him since), and Gland heading out for examples.

But are members of this site going to go to the funerals of deceased members? Before I joined this site I laughed at the idea of having "friends" on the internet and have changed my attitude of the idea since but how far do you take it?

If something were to happen to any of my favorite members I would like to know but how would we know? Hopefully noone dies during my stay here, end it at that:thumb02:

That's why everyone needs to write down all their usernames and passwords on a note and store it somewhere, so that when they die their family members can inform the internet people.

Just throwing it out there.

That is my exact point, how would you know? How do you know people we call our friends haven't already passed away? God forbid that it actually happens but its just a thought!

Just in case something happens I have informed my brother to post it in the CJ rebuild thread. Nothing will happen because I'm indestructible but you never know.

One member who is responsible for extra information would be a nice commodity. Swpthleg would be my choice, if only because women are smarter and more compassionate than men. She'd do a good job:thumbsup:

The reason I left, and will rarely return, is because I rarely use my PC anymore, and I refuse to browse the full version on my phone. They won't even integrate a mobile version because "the network hasn't made the change." Fine, keep losing members because you won't integrate a simple feature.

This thread makes me think of this



....and my collection of midget porn.
