Should SW have an In Memoriam space or designation to honor the memory of those who have passed away?

Yes, that's a great idea.

I think we should approach the SW brass and ask for a respectful nod to those SW members we have lost.

For the ones that have died or just left?
Cause I don't much like the idea of honouring anyone whose claim to fame is giving up.

[@329500,uncalled4] Passed away is clear.

Passed:
verb
past tense: passed; past participle: passed
1.
move or cause to move in a specified direction.
"he passed through towns and villages"
2.
go past or across; leave behind or on one side in proceeding.
"on the way to the station she passed a cinema"

[@622125,Thevy29] It's the only claim to fame I have,dont take it away,man!
I do think that’s a good idea. Some people know posters offline and know they’ve passed away, while others of us who know them more casually (but still like them) have no way of knowing why they’re no longer here.

All in all a good idea; I felt very saddened by the moment I heard someone from here died years ago I didn't talk with much and a space in memoriam would have let those who needed expressions out, out - and would come with actual notice instead of hearsay.

How would we know they are brown bread or just left.

[@402501,billstickers] The alternative is everyone leaves without anyone knowing?
billstickers · 36-40, M
[@1175131,pleasingyouorme] We all know they have left as they are not here anymore.
pleasingyouorme · 41-45, M
[@402501,billstickers] So how we deal with the dead is they are not here anymore?
Justmeraeagain · 51-55, F
Nice idea

{@uncalled4] yes i think that is a good suggestion . people disappear off similar worlds and we never find out to a later date they have died or if at all
