What to do when a user passes away? (Linnie)

Hi friends, I posted about Linnie's passing in the old Mauresmo forum, but is there any kind of protocol to follow if we know a user has died? Both from an account/security standpoint and maybe a letting the community know standpoint?

I can provide someone a link to her FB page if you need/want some confirmation.

How long ago was it if I may ask?

Last week. I don't think she'd posted much recently, but seeing the notices about the data breach got me thinking you might want to know so you could close or suspend the account.

I've brought this to the mod team to discuss ideas.

Thanks!

I clicked "Forum Leaders" and then realised there was a section about the dearly departed members of TF.

Can we also add other members as well? Scotso is the only one I can think of atm (Do other people know of any?)

Oh wow. Had no idea!

RIP Linnie

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Shoot any of the admins a message if you know someone from the site has passed.

Also Kristof at Pukkelpop in 2011. I think his user name was Holden. See Geert's and Dahveed's post (#6 and #10).

And of course Scotso.

@Meelis or any other admin.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.
Always.
