Ancient Dragon

All,

We have some unfortunate news. Our good old friend, Melvin aka Ancient Dragon passed away on Aug 21, 2014. :`(

His obituary can be found here.

Those who have been here for a long time and those who lurk in the Application Development forums would surely know of his contributions and the impact he made on the community as a whole. He loved gaming and was passionate about programming and helping out others.

RIP Mel, you and your contributions will surely be missed...

Re: Ancient Dragon

I just noticed this today he told me in a private message that he had cancer. I knew it would be awhile before he would be active on the forums, but never thought I would never hear from him again.

This is very sad to hear!!

I pmed him a few weeks ago after I checked his last login date (It says : Feb 28th, 2016) and now I know why he hasnt replied.....

I loved Melvin,he was a caring person and Ill miss him........

If a staff member (co-admin,admin) wants to go in and delete my PM from the PM database for Melvins account PLEASE DO SO,I dont want it taking up space for nothing

What staff do we still have left active here??


This is very sad......

Re: Ancient Dragon

Including myself there are three mods semi-active. I don't think there is an admin at this time. I've asked the only person I know to promote one of the mods, but since there is no activity on this site, it's not considered a priority.
