    He was one of a kind, great guy and a mod for some time. He was a US Veteran.

    But is that the full extent of the "tribute" people referred to? The black ribbon with Merlin on it?

    I'd like to restore it, but want to make sure it's complete.

    I think there was use of his avatar also somewhere in the banner.

    Great guy, powerful poster, veteran and very much deserving of the honor Jim showed him.... I think everyone that cared for and respected him was extremely disappointed with the disappearance of his memorial.

    I think it would be more appropriate to try to defend yourself on a thread that is NOT about remembering Merlin. Show some respect and let it remain to be about him.

    In truth, if there was anything that saddened me when the site was first sold, it was the removal of our little memorial to Merlin. It wasn't much but it was all we could do as a board. He was my friend and a great contributor to this board. I for one would be thrilled if you restored that little ribbon. You might even consider it a bit of heritage for USMB.

    Odd--that looks like a response to me. Maybe you could PM me and explain what you mean by "Clean your own house".

    Scott,

    Yes, the ribbon is the memorial I mentioned. It was designed and added to the header by dmp. Many of us wish we could have done so much more, but being a community we felt that was appropriate. If it can be restored, that would be outstanding, and extremely appreciated. I would do so elsewhere, but quite honestly, this was his home and it would be most appropriate here.

    I personally thank you for trying to fix this!

    -Jim
