Default Honoring passed on members

Hey Tripper, I wonder if there would be a way to add a title to our passed on members info, something like Member Emeritus, so when they turn up with a post in an old thread people will know that they have passed away and left us? Willowbilly3 comes to mind, I see his posts show up in a lot of old threads, I figure there are others somebody knows about. I know a lot of time people just quit coming to the forum for their own personal reasons, but if we knew who was deceased we could honor them just a bit. Just a thought.....

One of the things another forum I am on does is change the location to heaven.
There was also a thread about their lives in a topic. Jim

I'm open to it. Let's have some more suggestions/opinions! We'd need a list.

As most of us have an avatar that we are happy with, I don't think anything there should be changed, but maybe an addition underneath informing readers that the member is "gone but not forgotten"

Right, I wouldn't want to change anything, but add a line under their avatar saying "Member Emeritus" or "Fallen Rodder" or something like that.

Some of you guys that have been here a long time probably know of the ones that have passed on, Willowbilly is the only one I can think of right now.

I like your idea Bamamav. Its a respect thing. Knowing that a member has become a Fallen Rodder may prevent an uncomfortable post. It felt weird recently. Got me thinking about a Fallen Rodder. RIP Willowbilly3.

If the Fallen Rodder is chosen, follwed by the date we lost our member would be a reminder of when.
