May her memory be eternal

If you folks don't mind me asking, how exactly does this board find out when a member dies? Does a friend or family member of the departed sign in with their account and notify the site or something?

You're really on to something here. Tattoo to keep you from masturbating, chew to keep you from fornicating... it's a whole new world where you outsource your crosses. You're like a Christian entrepreneur or something.

It was a bit of both. 

Sometimes you can do an IP check to see if the account is "dead" but we haven't done that in forever.  It might not be a bad idea to do it every 10 years, like the consecration of the Myrhon

James,

Not too many fora with which I'm familiar, other than here and ByzCath, regularly take note of the passing of their members. I know of cases where family have logged in and pm'ed an admin or posted, others where an email was sent to an admin by a family member, instances where a member has not been well and forum friends in touch with them have posted the news. Of course, fb connections now provide a ready source of information, as do blogs. (In the case of rwprof, whose anniversary we recently commemorated, Mark maintained a blog through which many of us followed his last painful months of life.) The number of folk here and at ByzCath who have "known" one another for years and, despite never meeting in person, have formed close bonds of friendship that extend beyond the site is pretty remarkable and that plays into it as well.

Still, the nature of fora being what it is, members come and go, often falling off the radar, with no one the wiser as to what may have happened to them. With that in mind, it wouldn't be a bad idea for us, in charity, to periodically remember those of the community who have reposed in the Lord.

May their memories be eternal!

Many years,

Neil
