Can't say I needed or wanted the reminder to my ignorance and past instability there Class. Past my own bullshit, I don't think there has been officially. But I think un-officially we have lost people that used to come here due to death. But you gotta look at the odds of them having a buddy to post their obituaries. Slim to none. Realistically and most likely, people just go dark and they're never heard from again.

Yes and no. I'm Sandtrap. It's a complicated messy story. The short version is I was in a fucked up place and the real guy who was dying offered me an idea in order to disconnect from my unhealthy amount of time on the net. Real scorched earth shit that'd force me to change something in my life in order to try. If you want to look at it in a different lense, in a way I did die, as what happened after all that shit was much worse. The person at the wheel today isn't the same one you knew.

Yikers, just referencing our shared history. Disappointed in yourself or not, you have to admit that from an outsider's POV, it's a cool bit of lore. I don't judge you whatsoever.

I mean, if I had to remember all of my mistakes, I'd probably have an existential crisis. I remember when I tried to steal my mother-in-law's wedding wine that was never supposed to be opened lol...........yeah, I've done plenty worse than you - you're practically a saint. Anyway, she caught me and the wine is still unopened. So no harm no foul.

And yeah that's my fear. If I ever die, I want someone to at least commemorate it on Sep7agon

From an outsider's perspective class, I'd look like a fucked up kid making a really bad call. Unstable thinking leading to a dumb move in order to try and save oneself. Nothing cool about it because some people were irrevocably hurt by those actions.

But if you want some thoughts on death? I know a lot of people who didn't make it. Your fear of disappearing into nothing is impossible to avoid. Here's what I've seen of death. Unless it's a loved one like a partner you had a deep connection with, or a family member with a strong bond, within two years you'll be a quiet fading memory.

Hardly anyone will think of you, and almost no one will mention you. And that's how it goes. You've stopped moving in time, but life and other people haven't. Commemorations aren't worth shit. They're not about the deceased. They're about how everybody left behind is temporarily feeling. That and you expect this place to be here for that long? Entertaining thought I guess. The reality of death is that you're reduced to nothing, and you can never outrun that. So don't bother worrying about it. The present's more important.

Of if you want to worry about it, frame it differently. A room full of people at a funeral doesn't mean shit. But a lifelong bond that you made with a partner, wife or husband or whoever, that's important. They'll remember you long after you're gone, and they might even carry you all the way with them to the grave.  And the reason they do that is because you gave them a good life worth living, and hopefully they did the same.

If I'm not here, I'm doing photography. Or I'm asleep. Or in lockdown. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is just normal.
Isn't the Obits usually posted by someone else? Someone would have to know you died and post here.

I don't really think about it, but I would assume a small few who have visited here have died since the site's inception. The longevity of this place means it's up to chance, but it's increasing everyday the site is still up. Wouldn't even have to be common like age, or some mental health related self harm, could get hit by a car or gotten unlucky with Covid.

I think the last part I mentioned is the real problem though - I don't think I'm 'connected' enough to anyone else here outside of this website. If I died, I'd just stop posting, my discord would be offline, and on Xbox Live I'd just be 'Last Seen >365 days ago' . I'm sure that applies to many other people here too.
