Ruger - others -

I didn't want to hijack the Gramps thread -

There have been some awfully good folks on this site over the years and the passing from 'Gramps' got me to thinking....

Is there any support for a forum where we could 'retire' screen names so they don't get recycled or used again by someone new that might by chance pick up the old name?

Maybe a 'closed/locked' forum where only the admins could post, post the screen name, maybe a picture a couple of there most memorable posts?



NBForest and Gramps jump right out at me, but I'm sure there have been a few others that might be worthy of such an honor?


What do you guys think?

I think it would be a good idea also...

If someone would like to post to the thread, they can send a PM to the mods with what they would like to say and the mods could post it for them along with a link to their profile.

What are the thoughts on having the owners contacting the family letting the family know that a thread has been created in rememberance of a "blessed" member so that the family may be able to visit and share?

I'm for it Ferg....heck, why not just have a locked thread and we can post one pic of tndeer members....that way we could put a face with a name...and of course retire screen names of those that have passed...Either way, good idea Ferg

You could conceivably let people post their own best memories about interactions with those lost to us. And let a mod protect and guard those threads well. Potentially even send posts in to be reviewed before being put into the thread.

Good idea. The forum could be setup so noone could start new threads but make replies to a thread already started by the Mods. For instance there would be a thread started by the Mods entitled Gramps. People could then go in and most memories, stories, and pictures of that person in their honor. Not sure if this is possible but a great idea.

I actually thought when I clicked this that the idea would be some type of memorial award given to a member each year at the VOUS. Or maybe some type of TNDeer memorial given to the family. Just a couple of other thoughts running through my mind.

I really like the idea of a memorial forum with pics and information—great idea there Ferg!!!! To my knowledge, no other forum has this and just the suggestion is why we are the best campfire on the net!

I am all for this. And since I know this kind of change to the site costs money both short and long term, I hereby commit to $50.00 bucks.
