    How many members of this site have passed away in recent years, and what to they mean to us if anything at all? I never hear anyone mentioned, are they just forgotten?

    There have been quite a few, but I remember Shaun_C as I spoke to him many times and he was a very active member here. It was quite a shock when we had heard that he had passed. I'm gonna go ahead and move this to GD. Not a bad idea to reminisce about our friends here that have passed.

    Quite a few? Makes it sound like the black death is back.

    I've been dead on the inside for years; does that count?

    Well, it just seems like over the years there were a few. Maybe it seemed that way cause they weren't that far apart?

    I had only known Tfmaster, but I never really met the guy, just talked to him a few times on MSN or PM or something, that was a 5 or 6 years ago I think, can't really remember.

    Vector?

    And there was some guy that didn't post too much that died of a brain tumor. I think he died, anyway.

    Shaun_C, TFMaster and Vector are the only ones I'm particularly aware of. And of them I only knew Shaun_C, not particularly well but we met in person in 03 at OTFCC and spoke online a fair number of times, was certainly a shock to hear of his passing...

    Maybe we could have their accounts set up in a memorial type fashion? I dunno, just a thought. Maybe have their profiles have a little info about them, their DOB and their date of death if possible and let members post user comments on their profile saying their good byes and different things about them. Just to give everyone else an idea of who these people were and what they meant to the community and to the individuals.

    Just a thought is all.

    It was kinda crazy how both TFMaster and Shaun_C passed very close to Botcon 07. Shaun C had me scratching my head a good amount times on the boards and TFMaster had me make up a website for him (pre-Transtopia... I failed in everyway haha!)

    If I had known the future I would've had us done something cooler than given a peace sign in this picture of me and Shaun_C at Botcon 06

    Ive been wanting to make a memorial for the longest time for them, but my photoshop skills aren't perfect, and that' not good enough. Alphie made some good ones before.
    I think Vector was the most recent one :( 


    I think we should find out what their birthdays were and make them into TFW holidays.
    Would like to dedicate a special day out of each year to remember them.


    -Ultimate Plan-
    Tempted on getting a list, and see if Peter Cullen will give them a voiced memorial , like a shout out, to forever engrave their names in TF legend. Plus they all stood in line to meet him at Botcon

    Yeah, TFmaster was one that I spoke to on a regular basis over AIM. Shocked when I got a reply from his wife telling me of his passing :(

    Shaun_C was one of my favorite board members. I really regret that I never got the opportunity to hang out with him at a convention or anything like that.

    Shaun was a goofy, goofy dude. Socially awkward with a heart of gold.

    He had an uphill battle throughout his life, but always had a smile.
