    Thank you for considering this suggestion. I think that would be the perfect place, if approved. So much more could be incorporated into it as well, and I believe a very nice addition.

    I know I know, but we should ask family members about their opinion, it's not like 1 woman wants forum/archive with all the dead people.
    It's not our decision at all.

    And thank you for bringing this suggestion at this time you could wait at least few months it really gives me chills. " Are they going to discuss to put me there even if I said no ............ in case I loose"

    We already have a genera archieve: http://forums.speedguide.net/forumdisplay.php?f=53.

    Moving posts does not change their visibility much, just puts them into a more fitting category.

    The archives are locked, so that rules out disrespectful postings in the proposed memoriam board.

    Yups Philip, looks like there's a place for the memoriams there.

    Making and keeping a page up with a few words of respect,
    wouldn't be too hard to do..
    Won't have to be anything too fancy.. anything from thier family,
    or just a avatar, and some words of respect.

    My 2 Cents.
    I had a similar vision.

    Perhaps a link to the memoriam archive on the SG home page... and a one week "live" memoriam as Shinobi has suggested.

    Maybe set a time limit for posting to a memoriam, then lock it. If a member misses one, a pm to a mod could allow posting to the memoriam after the posting time limit is up. And that way, no spam possible in there.

    Good idea Misty.

    If someone doesn't wanna view the memoriams... then don't click on it, it's as simple as that.

    Jeff...if it is approved...and placed in the general archives...there is already a link on the main page of your speedguide page..(as in general forum, or any other forum). Go all the way to the bottom, to the jump forums option...and scroll down the list...the general archive link is there There is no possible way it could possibly be opened accidentally, for those who might take offense.
