Thread Name: Obituary threads
Subject: Obituary threads
I've noticed a lot of obituary threads lately that are lacking one important element - they often tell us noting about the deceased person, so the thread makes no sense to us who don't know the person.
Start both music and non-music obituary threads with the "obituary" tag. The thread will start out in the music section at the top of the forum menu. Eventually, the moderators with regularize the thread title (with standard date format) and move the thread to the non-music section if needed. No need to worry about it - non-music obits will get to the non-music section eventually. If the person didn't die in the current year, it would help if you state the date of death in a message. Otherwise, we'll assume it was in the current year and date the thread title accordingly.
But please remember to tell us something about the deceased person.
