Hello All,

During my membership in this site for 2 years, I have seen approx. between 5 and 10 pass away announcements of our colleagues in the Forums.

As you all know, death is a part of our lives and as the existence of ProZ.com exceeded 10 years, unfortunately it seems that we will continue to hear such announcements with an increase in amount within the next 5-10 years.

Of course I respect the efforts and feelings in those posts, but to my opinion those colleagues deserve much more than becoming a topic in the forums.

So, I am suggesting to create a memorial place in the site.
A place where they will be listed according to the country, passing year,
With profiles (different from the current profile system)
Links to the their activity in the site (KudoZ answers, forum posts etc)
And an option for visitors' adding comments, condolences, wishes
And an option where other people may add their artistic works (if any) such as; poems, articles or other works.
And the site may appoint several people for arranging this board (such as approval of the posts, collecting information, pictures,)

I think there would be a lot of volunteers for such initiative so it won't bring any work load on the site staff.

So, would it be possible to arrange such place in the site (under the community section)?

Best Regards,

M. Ali
