all righty, so. like i said in the "family album decision" thread, i decided to have people IM me stuff they wanted to say about people who have been moved from the regular family album to the MIA family album (if you don't know what that is...well, you get moved from the regular family album if you stop being an active member, basically. all you need is one post every three months to qualify as an active member by the formula we set up though..lol). but....after talking to a few people who have been around here a long time, it would appear that barely anyone knows most of the people who are up there (well, except leo, who is of course rather fond of saucy_tara...but he already told me he was thinking of what he wanted to write about her).

so, my thought is this (and i already stated this in the other thread, but got next to no response....so i'm trying again. hope springs eternal)....i figured for the MIA site i'd make two separate sections...one for people with audio/pics and one for those without. those without i'll just have a page with their avatar and little things their friends have said about them. my basic thought behind this is if any of them ever do come back, it'll make them feel all warm and tingly knowing that their friends didn't forget them.

so, if anyone does wanna do this...just PM me with what you wanna say about whoever it is. they don't necessarily have to have been gone for 3 straight months...it could be as little as one month.....just someone you miss and wish was around more basically, who isn't already in the regular family album.

as for what to say about them....well, whatever you want really. could be as simple as "i miss them, i wish they'd come back" or it could be a novel reminiscing about all the good times you had together. it doesn't matter to me either way as i'll just be copying and pasting everything. happy.gif

(whoa...i just had deja vu. i haven't made this a topic of its own already, have i? i think i started to once then stopped. weird).
hinsley
erm... i cant think off anyone. i miss Saucy Tara but i cant think off anything to say accept i really miss her and want her to come back. but thats not very original. but then im not a very original person. sorry about me rambling but i have had lots of sugar and could type forever. erm............................

well who do i miss? i know.. i go look thro the MIA site and see. god i feel guilty if i have forgot anyone. ill edit this if there is^_^
hinsley
nope i dont really know the rest. : /

i think they all went before i even got here !!!
Phyllis
you could always look through the members list on the forums too, hins.

like i said, there's (erm hopefully) gonna be a section for people who don't have audio/pics but are still missed nontheless.
hinsley
i could do... but my eyes hurt. :faints: im so tired.
Phyllis
geez hins lmao take a nap! tongue.gif

ok, i'm going to go through the member list and post all early members that have an okay amount of posts that i haven't seen post in a long time (or ever)......and who aren't on the regular fam album.

i've no clue how liked/disliked these people are though...lol. so i've no clue what sort of response this will get

if i post anyone who DOES post now...i'm sorry lol i must have just missed the threads you talk in tongue.gif

prezgfish - well, he was the first one i saw who wasn't on the reg. fam. album. came back for awhile last week was it? then left again.

I don't actually have a microphone so I couldn't do the audio anyway.

errr.....weej hun, you're an active member of the forums. you aren't in any way gonna be moved to the MIA site..lol.

plus....i meant audio and/or pics.....one or the other or both. im just setting up a section of the MIA site for people who are still missed, but have neither audio nor pics to display.
WeeJ
lol...that makes more sense.

If its any help, I could shout really far over the sea and you could stand on the coast with a tape recorder... laugh.gif

And its a really good idea Candice...Will make people feel really special if/when they come back.
Phyllis
thanks weej happy.gif

ooh...i just noticed that you and i joined the forums on the exact same day. well then, i doubt i have any chance of getting you to write something about someone for the MIA site then...since neither of us have been around long enough to really know someone who can be classified as MIA...lol tongue.gif
Industrial Kybosh
hmmm... this was a great idea, and I hope to be of some use. I remember all of the ones mentioned, and have a little something to say about most (though in one case I may keep my mouth shut - I've said plenty in IRC already dry.gif).

You want these solely in PMs, cand? Or will posting on this thread suffice?
Phyllis
posting on the thread is just fine, InKy happy.gif or PMs...doesn't matter. either way is fine by me.

(and erm yeah....ya have said quite a bit in IRC about a particular case tongue.gif lmao)
Sir Psycho Sexy
...wierd, i remember posts from a lot of those people biggrin.gif

course i remember tara and free more...i used to be free's minion ya know, and for one proud moment i was saucy tara's bridesmaid...fond memorys *sigh*

though i don't remember a selkie blue, but in a rather small world twist i have a selkieblue2 on my yahoo list, i wonder if its the same person.....

edit: bugger me, it is....saying that this is probably where i got her yahoo name from anyway but still i had no idea, and i do remember her
LoLo
I feel old now.........I remember all these people........and when you said no one remembers these people well cept for leo, it just reminded me of when leo was a lil spam happy noob, don't ask me why, it just popped in my head. laugh.gif

I'll get you PMs some time cand. I've been planning on it since this started. Go me I'm a procrastinator!

Sun Tsu
Well, the only one i know there is free psycho, so i'll think of something nice to say....
MistressAlti
I miss Free. She and I lived on streets with the same name. And I reminded her of a friend of hers that might be dead. We had so much in common... *sniff*

Cand, I WILL get round to doin some eulegies fer these people... I know quite a few of 'em, so I think I could muster up summat nice about 'em. Even the one inky won't talk about wink.gif laugh.gif

Awww, InKy lurves Prez. Really he does. Somewhere deep down inside.
leopold
Yeah, with the tip of his favourite steel-capped boots, I reckon! wink.gif laugh.gif
Industrial Kybosh
galder weatherwax's hat - I always found Galder's posts amusing, I recall. Furthermore, he had a League Of Gentlemen quote in his sig. Always a winner.

spacehappy - another frequently amusing poster with a nifty avatar. I think he wanted to have my Black Rabbit of Inle av when I changed to the Giger one. However, that bunny is going nowhere...

free psycho - I was the priest at her wedding to cheese. Indeed, it was her who approached me to ask if I'd mind. Naturally, I was delighted. She's a great forumite, and I have many memories involving her - including the time we edited all of our posts in a thread she'd made so as to disguise what had been discussed. Heh... you secret will die with me, Free wink.gif

phoenix - Phoenix is still awaiting a song dedication from me, but, for my part, I'm still waiting for more info. Any time you're ready, love... wink.gif

dark protector - I remember there being some kind of noob bidding war when DP arrived. LoLo got the honour, I recall... and very chuffed she was, too!
MoonlightSavingsTime
I think Dark Protector is still around, albeit sporadically. So you might want to remove her from the list of "missing people."

a post from July 9

another from July 27

And I've seen other recent posts of hers and received a PM from her just a couple days ago, so I know she's still hanging around somewhere. smile.gif
Phyllis
ohhhh you're right, moonlight...tyvm smile.gif

i should have looked at the info.....if i'd seen the avatar i'd have realized i have seen em post lately.

sorry dark protector! happy.gif
Phyllis
okay, the site is updated! ty all vm for the nice stuff you said. happy.gif i know if i was gone from these forums, i'd love to come back to somethin like that.

i still have to resize some avatars, but i'm going to save that for tomorrow....so yeah, those pictures aren't always going to stay that huge. they will all be 100 x 100 by tomorrow afternoon. happy.gif
Phyllis
LoLo's memories of Dancing Altoid, Saucy_Tara, Lady Dark Peach, Free Psycho, and Spacehappy all added (ty lo! happy.gif ) and the avatar problem fixed today.
spuglet
i remember most of these people too!
i'm so old, i remember time b.l. (before leo) and when he first came on he stole my av.
anyway, ramble over.

Did I? Lordy... cos I came here an I noticed an absence o South Park wrestlin characters, so I chose Kenny Kane... or did ya mean the growly smiley?

Ah, flashback to old av!

craziness
ok i have some memories--
lady dark peach was AWESOME! i loved her! she and i started the entire concept of e-syblings. you see, we figured that we had enough in common to be long lost twins, and she also had this bitchy sister who i am going to kill for her. she rocks.
saucy tara was really nice to everybody, and she was really interesting, and accepting, and i remeber and miss hearing about her son. losing her was very very bad for our forum.
witchblade_babe was always really happy and exited and nice to everyone.
free physco....... i can't even get into how awesome she was. we all miss her, very, very much.
Phyllis
I added all of those just now, thanks Crazi happy.gif (and welcome back!).

Oh and I also went through and linked all of the names of the people who contributed memories to their profiles on the regular family album. smile.gif
Phyllis
Today after recovering from my vodka-induced stupor, I added Crissi and Sarah's memories of several members. happy.gif Thanks for sending me them, you two! smile.gif

BTW, Crissi made me think of something. I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but if there is someone you have a memory of that you want on the page, just PM me w/ the memory and I'll add them. smile.gif Even if they're slightly...controversial. It doesn't matter. I don't plan on keeping anyone out of there, no matter what. As long as they have at least one friend who remembers them fondly and wants to share the memories they have of them, then they'll go up there.
CrissiLove
Thank you very much, Candice smile.gif You are doing a wonderful job on the M.I.A. Album! It looks great!
Phyllis
Thanks Crissi! happy.gif

I have her on my "watch list," Sun. If she hasn't posted by a certain date (I'd have to look at the list to see what it is exactly), then I'll move her. When I started this, I asked Cheese for help with a lot of it. He said he'd seen Kawaii post recently at the time of the MIA Album's creation, so I just put her on a watch list instead of adding her. smile.gif

A kind reminder if I have forgotten someone is always appreciated.

I am human, and I do make errors.

I think some people should remember that about both family albums...we aren't machines. Everyone is bound to make mistakes here and there. We do this stuff in our spare time. Being nice while pointing out that we've made a mistake goes a long way, believe me. And not jumping all over us when we don't add something immediately is also a good thing. smile.gif

Sorry, rant over.
leopold
I wanna back up what cand has said there... cand an lolo do a damn fine job on these albums, takin up their own time, fer no money, ta provide all of us wi a service! They aren't robots, they're people who are doin this fer everyone's benefit out of the kindness of their hearts.

Please, dun abuse that, or we could lose it, perhaps forever. An how crap would that be?

So please, less abuse an more props ta these two lovely lay-dees who care so much an give so selflessly!

Cand, I dun think I've said this, but great work on the MIA album, it's sweet! An one day I'm gonna get me act together an send ya summat!
Phyllis
Thanks, Leo happy.gif Ya have said that before though biggrin.gif

It's not like I want everyone to ooh and ahh over what I've done though (although it is nice when they do, I won't deny that... lmao, but I really haven't done all that much, I just copied Lo's original layout for the reg. album). I'd just like for people to point out any mistakes nicely. I've not had a problem with it so far really, but well, I've seen more than one person get snippy about something not being perfect on the reg. album, and that's just not the way it should be at all. smile.gif
Phyllis
Okay, since Witchblade Babe is back, I'm gonna delete her from the MIA site. Lo, let me know if you need her picture file and such for the regular site. smile.gif

I got it all back for the reg site this morning, and it will be back up as soon as I get back from work (I'm on my lunchbreak right now) and get the index back up and running.
NummyNums
i talked to guy the other day he said if yah all wnat him to come back he will reload internet on his comp and stuff... god he is soooooo hott....
Phyllis
That'd be up to him, Nummy. I don't think he was around long enough for many people to get to know him, since no one has submitted a single memory about him yet.
