My condolences to LadyTevar and the rest of his family. :(
El Moose Monstero: That would be the winning song at Eurovision. I still say the Moldovans were more fun. And that one about the Apricot Tree.
That said...it is growing on me.
Thanas: It is one of those songs that kinda get stuck in your head so if you hear it several times, you actually grow to like it.
General Zod: It's the musical version of Stockholm syndrome.

I was just wondering would it be possible to send a sympathy card in the post or something?

It's unfortunate that this board/community has existed now for so long that we tragically do lose people in this way. It's nearly a year since Bear passed and reading Facebook today I was reminded of others that have passed. As such can I recommend a Hall of Heroes in memorial to these members, nothing too fancy just a link to some of their better posts etc. A reverse of the Hall of Shame if you will.

I brought this up to Mike and he agreed. Since we already have a Hall of Heroes thread in Announcements, I will therefore create the Hall of Memory as a repository for these threads.

If anyone wants to help, please contact me.

For the Hall Of Memory, I would like to have the epic insult post that Martin made, the one that had absolutely no curse words in it at all.


But now, the FULL Information:

Martin F. Kemmish, 32 of Charleston, WV passed away on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at CAMC
General Hospital after an accidental fall at home.

his life and settled in Charleston, WV.

Martin was a Boy Scout (Life rank) and a member of the National Honor Society. He was also a
member of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) in the Barony of Blackstone, Mountain.

Martin Kemmish was very intelligent and unique guy. He was very British and proud of his
heritage, as well as proud to be called a Geek. He loved books by Terry Pratchett, Douglas
Adams, and was a player of RPG’s, Video Games, Online Games, and anything that challenged
his mind. He was the administrator to many of his online forums and was well-loved by people
he had only met online. His wit and knowledge and debating skills challenged many and gave
him great renown amongst these forums.

Martin loved Jimmy Buffet’s music, and learned to share his wife’s love of Southern Rock

parents, Fran and Geoff Kemmish of Boston; sister, Ruth Kemmish of Washington, DC; Uncle

Only heard just now. I had noticed the banner before but I never knew SirNitrams real name, never realized it was him. My condolences.

Crap. I saw the announcement banner but hadn't realized it was Sir Nitram. Such a shame. Hope Tev and all his friends/family are doing okay.

My condolences to LadyTevar.
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers

My condolences to Lady Tev and any family. We never interacted, or at least not frequently, but I've been here long enough to know most of the more established residents at least a little. His passing is a loss to us all.

Damn. I go on vacation, and come back to find this.

As a lurker, I didn't really have a lot of interaction with SirNitram, besides him calling me a moron once (I deserved it). But I enjoyed reading his posts. When quickly scanning threads, his posts would always be one of the ones I took the time to read in detail, as they were mostly always entertaining or informative.

My deepest condolences to LadyTevar and the rest of his family.
