I haven't seen her posting on here for quite a while and I sure loved her stories. Is she still around? I miss her!

The last time she logged in here was January 17, 2020. Maybe someone else will know more.

I can think of at least one other frequent poster of the last couple of years who just disappeared, and I always wish I knew what happened to them.

She's fine, just keeping busy. I speak to her occasionally and last time was not too long ago.

I believe Ana is friends with Sorta Blonde on Face Book so she may know something. (Sparkle also if that's who you might be referring to Marian.)

Ha, ha. Ana was posting while I was typing.

No, I wasn't thinking of Sparkle (I still contact her from time to time). I was thinking in particular of Sanford (Sandy). He was last logged in on June 17, 2019. But there are others too, of course.

I am with you Marian regarding Sanford, we used to email each other from time to time keeping up to date on Adv. games and other news, but like you said, since June 2019 he never answered my emails, so one wonders what happened to him, so sad because he was a really great person.

I've tried to message Sparkle a couple of times with no answer, so I was hoping she was OK too. I kinda miss Sorta's stories! And now that you say something, I haven't seen Sanford around for quite awhile either.

Sparkle is fine also, she is on social media daily and we still communicate.

Sandy is 90 years old hearts

Oh yes, I have not forgotten about Sanford at all, nor Kjos! I mentioned Sparkle because she has gone missing more recently from the board.

I know Sandy is 90, but I was still hoping he would be here for some time to come. We have had many amazing people on this board who were/are over 80. yes

And yes, Kjos (Richard) was getting older, too. As are we all!

kjos is 86 years old also. It is always sad when people just stop posting and we don't know why.

I've thought that I need to let my step-daughter know how to contact all my on-line friends if something happens to me! My husband mentioned how hard the isolation last fall, winter and spring was on him because he couldn't talk to anyone. He said at least I talked with all my friends on-line every day. I hadn't thought about it, but he was right! Everyone here, at Mystery Manor, Facebook and everywhere else helped so much.

Yes. I understand that there are often good reasons that people stop posting - I just wish that whenever possible they would let us know before they leave. It's when people that have been here for years just up and disappear forever that it really bothers me. And there are quite a few posters that fall into this category.

I agree! We lost quite a bit to social media. I still see many because we connected on Social Media before they left, but there are many more I just lost contact with.

I always wonder where people went, too. One person in particular I had been missing for a long time. I finally searched her out a couple of years ago only to find an obituary, which made me very sad. We were sort of RPG sisters in that we always seemed to play the same type of character in the same games.

I'm glad to hear that all the members above are still with us.

hagatha, now that you brought it up, I didn't want to be morbid, but I did look up kjos and sanford since I have their real names and there have not been any notices. I have sadly found others that did pass but no one has inquired so I don't publicly announce.

One person that always baffled me in his disappearance is Retired at Last. I've never been able to find out what happened to him. We chatted on and off the board frequently and then he just stopped.

I also miss nickie and inferno, and traveler.

8dognight has also been gone a long time now.

Those are just a few names. There are many others.

Ana, I also look at obituaries at times in search of possible information. And I remember Retired at last - and also that one day he just disappeared.

I remember a lot of posts from BettyLou, she hasn't posted in a very long time.

I have wondered about her too. Her last post was February 2017 in the Hints forum.

Inferno is doing great. I need to think about the others mentioned. I may know a couple answers.

I remember and have noticed the absence of some of the mentioned people also, such as traveler and 8dognight.

I'm glad to hear that you didn't find any obits on Sandy and Kjos but I actually thought there might be one for Venus. Do you communicate with her Ana? That was very strange how she just stopped posting like that and being a Reviewer, why didn't she let you know something? I remember how you kept posting like, where was she and if she was okay.

As far as you not posting about some of them because nobody asked, I think some of us may fear the answer.

oldbroad, venus never answered a single message I've sent her. She just quit. I was worried for a long time something bad happened and then came to the awkward conclusion that she just quit without notice. She is active occasionally on FB and that is the only reason I know she's ok. We are "friends" there, but zero communication.
