    Danjohnston949

    I was just reading a thread in which Dan had posted, and I noted that his membership is listed as “Former Member.” I know this is technically correct but certain members have made such an impact on our community that “Former Member” just doesn’t seem right. I’m hoping that we can find someway of honoring his contributions to the Pit better than just “Former Member.” “Member Emeritus” or the like came to mind, but I’m sure others might come up with something better.

      I completely agree Don. There are former Moderators that have been granted that status, Dan contributed at least as much to our forum, and probably more. He was THE FIRST person to make me feel welcome here and I think of him often whilst perusing these pages. Perhaps "Member In Memoriam" might be a nice title for our lost loved ones. I truly miss that Backyard Cremator.

      Memorial member? If we want to differentiate from the Emiritus. There are a few others besides Dan.

        Apologies brother, I saw this after I edited my post, but we are definitely on the same page.

      I definitely support the “Member in Memoriam” suggestion. This is a great idea, folks.

        I love this idea as well. Dan is one who is very deserving of a special title.
        lets see if Huskee and Meathead can make it happen.

            Doesn’t he! When I learned he was younger than me, I suddenly felt really old.

              Dan was marked as "In Memoriam", not sure why/how it changed. I will change it back.

                I was pretty sure that had been the case. I bet the automated system kicked in when it was time for his renewal, and marked him as a former member.

                jfmorris Yeah that's what happened.

              I loved his stories...kindness, humbleness and his humor...The Back Yard Cremator...Member in Perpetuum??

                I'm in favor. How about Member Ad Astra? It is Latin and it means, roughly, "to the stars". I think we should also honor him with some sort of annual award in his name to be announced at the Meat-Up.

                Agree. Dan was special. We have lost other good ones too, e.g., Smarkley. How about an In Memoriam channel that contains the pictures of all those we have lost/will lose? Sort of like a wall of honor.
