In Memorium Sub-Forum?

I'm wondering if it would be possible to have an "In Memorium" Sub-Forum. It is sad when someone from the FIRST family passes.

I didn't realize, for example, that Steve Stark passed away this week. I'm sure that if I didn't log in for another day, that message would no longer have been on my portal feed. Having a dedicated sub-forum would make it much easier to keep all of these sad posts in one place for people to look at from time to time.

Re: In Memorium Sub-Forum?

Despite the seemingly all too often sad news in our community, I am not sure that such a sub-forum is appropriate. I think a sub-form would, in a way, normalize the topic of loss - and I don't think anyone wants that.

In retrospect, I should have placed the thread about Steve in the User Announcements for more visibility.

Feel free to disagree with me, but my thought is that there should be no memorial sub-forum at the risk of detracting from the magnitude of a loss and the uniqueness of the individual.
