On the topic of the "escape plan", would there be warning so that members could decide how to handle things if such a problem were to happen? Some people have spent the better part of their lives here; and losing it unexpectedly could be quite harmful to them.

On a somewhat related note, I even have a plan if I die; Renee will log on and post a "Ted is Dead Thread".

Don't forget to live before you die.

unless someone explicitly asks for their account to be closed / removed / the forums completely go offline, all accounts which are still active will remain active to my knowledge (especially when no one has the time to prune old accounts anyway ).

though i'll note that if someone did request an account removal and has a large number of posts, removing an account then becomes a pita as it causes no end of trouble to keep thread flows correct, etc - as i'm finding at the moment from a request i'm processing.

It seems unfair that someone could ask you to change or delete past posts in mass quantities. People should just deal with the fact that they made a choice to post what they posted, with maybe a few occasional deletions if they made a post or two that needs to be fixed. I guess if some kind of law enforcement official demanded it, I could understand, but really, what's posted is posted if you ask me.

Don't forget to live before you die.

We had just such a situation at Pabook a few years ago. The guy in question was an active member here too, before moving to Pabook.

Here he was known as J. Burnaway.

RIP JB.

Errr, hello everyone. I have no idea when I joined (will find out ofter I post this), although I can remember lurking here before the move to VB forums, which was when I was back in college, pre 2000. I spent the best part of 5 years addicted to these forums and was eventually glad to cure my addiction. I think this was partly because the people I grew up with here left and were replaced by a younger lot that weren't the same.

Good to see so many name from the past again!

Oh yeah, I used to be called Phily Baby, but changed my name shortly before my decline in posting, in case some of you were wondering who the hell I am.

Aww this is fun! Hello everyone ^_^

I was sat bored, avoiding going food shopping and was like 'I wonder how everyone on Winamp is =D'

Well I joined here in 2002... so I was 13? I re call myself and White Raven were once the youngest members around! Now I'm 22, I like to think growing old is inevitable, growing up how ever is optional

Nice to see we have a re-union of sorts going on, I should see if I could get Mr 75Mhz back here some time...

The irony I tend to see on a recurring basis is the comparison between forum members here who tend to act a lot more real when posting here, compared to a lot of my real-life acquaintances, who tend to pretend...

...the more-real people tend to act less real than the less-real people, who act more real...

...yeah...

...kinda hard to follow; read it again if necessary; I think it actually makes sense in a twisted sorta way...

Damn, I need some sleep. Thanks for keeping the community alive though. Sorry I don't have the seniority that you guys do, but I still have a respectable amount of time invested here, plus I'm a good 33 years old at this posting, which puts me older than some and younger than some. I just hope that you guys never lose this completely.

that's only because people replying i can always close it so it can get to that page (and would have been already by now if all the spam in those 4 months hadn't been removed, heh).

that about sums it up for some people around me

A lot of people are very honest here and don't have much motivation to put on a mask or "front", whereas some of the people I know in real life are so intent on putting on some kind of show that even they themselves lose touch with their true personalities.
