On the other side of the coin, when my husband died I made a post that he had passed away to inform the members, but I don't know if the Admin closed
his account. I even mentioned that they could close the account, but that wouldn't seem necessary because he obviously wouldn't be posting to it
Dead men tell no tales...
After his death I went off the grid for a few years. It took me time to recover from losing someone so important to me, and as my world started coming
back together I would look in on ATS. There may have been 2 or 3 years during that time when my account here was totally inactive, but it was here and
available to me when I wanted to do some reading, or just look at the changes going on. My account was open and available to me when I needed it, and
I could log in without the need to jump through hoops to prove I was still alive or have it reactivated.
I definitely wouldn't have wanted to be put on a "WALL OF THE MISSING". It would have given some members more cause for concern than was warranted,
and then they might have tried to contact me through other avenues at a time I was already overwhelmed with the things I needed to deal with.
I'm only shooting your idea down because of a personnel experience I've recently been through, others may think very differently. But please
consider, many ATS members place a high value on their privacy, and there are many possible reasons people stop posting here.
Pointing them out as missing isn't a good thing because of the added attention it might bring when that's the last thing they may want.
