So howbout a Hall of Fame?

I think after 10 pages plus of condolences for Bajasportsmobile the powers that be might agree that we should have one. I'm sure it could fit somewhere, maybe in the 'community' section? I dunno, just thinking we should do something here for Ramsey, and I thought and still think the same for Ultrasport12, another awesome member we lost a few years ago. I'm sure we've lost others who have made this forum what it is in the last few years.

Maybe Jage could be there too, since none of it would've happened without him? We'd like to keep you around a little longer though Jage!

Maybe it could just be a thread started about each of them where we could post pics, quotes, and share stories?

Great idea on so many levels.

Of course, for those that knew any of the "departed greats," it honors their contributions, personalities, and being. And could be a place to come back to over the years and post memories and heartfelt love for those who have pulled up their wheel chocks and rolled on. A lost presence is still felt strong around a campfire where the stories stay alive.

And for those who come/came to this SMB party too late to know those people in "real time," it would provide context and history to understanding the roots and spirit of the community. Easy answers to the obvious question of "Who do we have to thank for all this awesomeness?"

And perhaps it could even serve, as an added benefit, to somehow keep the collected posts and knowledge of the Hall-of-Famer's "still in play".....still visible....and perhaps somehow highlighted and annotated by the community as time goes by. I don't know.

But it's clear --- since so much of what they've written is still just as relevant and helpful/inspiring now as it was the day they posted it. Easily it can (and should!!) continue to inform (and inspire....and make chuckle...) countless future visitors to the site.

The beauty of the written word....people really DO live on, as long as what they said/wrote keeps being read.

Good idea. Can't add anything to what's already been written; I never met the man, but I can see from his posts that Ramsey was extremely knowledgeable and added a great deal to the discussions here. I was looking forward to meeting him at Agile for some questions and possible work to be done. A Hall of Fame section to recognize contributions such as his would be an ultimate form of peer review and appropriate.

Great idea Eric. This is something that should be done. Its both cool and a bit haunting to see some of Ramsey's posts still showing on the first page of some active threads, but after a while that won't be the case anymore. He should have a spot that keeps him somewhere at the forefront somehow.

I know, it's almost like he's still here huh? Things sure change fast.

One week - still reeling but slowly getting better. Giuliana arrives tomorrow so will get hear some Ramsey and Jeff (artictraveler) stories! A bottle of wine will certainly disappear. He is still around..... May have to
whip up some Margs.

Eric, I agree, the Hall of Fame/Remembrance idea is spot on. Perhaps the thread title with the persons name and all of the persons posts listed. Sound bites of a sort.
