ActiveRain Practices: Deceased Members

ActiveRain Practices: Deceased Members

 

Newer members of ActiveRain may be surprised to discover that some of the blogs they might read are by members who are no longer alive. The names of deceased members also appear on the Leaderboard. If you die tonight, you may be remembered by your last blog so you may wish to make every blog you write reflect the way you wish to be remembered.

I would like to see some designation on the Leaderboard that shows that the member is deceased. Perhaps the word "Deceased" behind the name with a date if available would be a nice tribute and a way to recognize these members.

What are your suggestions for deceased members? Should there be a "deceased' designation? Should the points status be removed or should it be retained?
