Ah, sorry yes. I unstickied it yesterday in preparation for the forum upgrade.

It has been a number of years since James passed, and I felt that it was no longer as appropriate as it once was for that post to be a sticky post.

Personally, I felt is was potentially quite triggering for some older members, and slightly confusing for newer members, and that most folks had become somewhat "blind" to announcements and sticky posts because they'd all been there for 4+ years, thus rendering stickies and announcements less useful than they should be.

I hope folks understand the rationale, but feel free to DM me if you want to chat about it some more.
I understand, it just made my heart *twang* for a second.

Yeah, tbh I did wonder about that possibility.

It's an understandable reaction.

Glad you understand my reasoning though.

This is your (slightly less than) 2 hour reminder.

The forum will be down for maintenance from 10am bst today, and will likely be unavailable for most of the day.
