    Exactly, but when he sent me a kit of gear to play with a couple years back,
    the last name for his return address was NOT Powell (my maiden name).

    I realize that... I guess it is just another example of don't believe everything you read on the web.

    It's funny--not as a joke funny--that his name got mangled after seeing the huge outpouring over at AK. There's no mistaking who Zilch is though.

    Evan's name has been corrected. Glad he was recognized for his contributions and for being an all around guy.

    We need to have a memorial page for each member we've lost too. Lest we forget them and their contributions.

    RIP Zilch

    What a generous spirit and model of audio passion for us to lose.

    When I first got my new-to-me L200 pair he answered my mulitple noob questions with patience, depth, and his typical directness: "Fake, but fun." was added to my audio lexicon. I initially thought he was somewhat humorless, but the more I read his threads, the more I realized that was my mistake.

    We were indeed fortunate to have him contribute and challenge us.

    That's for sure. He was a unique individual.

    Evan Flavell (Zilch)

    Evan has passed on now 2 months already.And already the boards are that much quiter without his contributions, that all of us will see are trually a great, great, loss.A super,super, intelligent guy, who always had the answers, and if he didn't, he would get at it until he did.I also miss his humor !

    May he rest in peace !

    Hi. I have been thinking about this. We, the "old gard" know this. The new members don't know, and they see a thread posted by someone who is not with us anymore, and post a question. They obviously don't get a reply.

    What about making a forum, where all posts from members tat is no more here, or a "pop up" that says something that the starter of this thread is no longer with us?

    I don't know, just a thought. What do you think?

    We have lost a number of old friends, there are possibly others too whose passing I may have missed. Here is the list that comes to mind: Zilch, Scotty, Johnaec, Steveh, and Tom Loizeaux. Tom passed away a few years ago, but the rest were more recent. I have just changed their "User Title" to RIP and year. I guess as the forum grows older and we do too this list will inevitably also grow.

    I thought it might be nice to find some way to memorialize these old friends, but as yet nothing really solid has come to mind. We moderators are certainly open to suggestions.

    I was thinking a long the same lines as well with the user title.

    "Gone But Not Forgotten" Year or Date. What makes the boards so special IMO is that we all have so many different views or tastes on speakers,amps,audio in general.But we all act as one when it concerns one of our members.Who are Loved by so many Folks.It's an Honor to be a part of that ! I didn't know Evan as well as some other Folks here, but he still had time to help me with XO questions for my new Custom build.I imagine that Evan replied to just as many PM's as he did in threads to help people, as he did with me on the Altec board.Just a very Generous Guy who is dearly missed.

    Rest in Peace Evan, and Thank You !

    This is a very good thing to do Widget. I am very sure that many other members, not so well known as the ones in question here, that has past away over the years, and we have never heard anything about it.

    Not that I have any plans to leave the planet for many years, but in my will I have instructed my family to write a note to the forum the day it happens. Anybody else done or have been thinking about this?

    johnaec is still listed as a senior member. Did you mean to change that?

    It's not the final answer, but it is a way to at least let those less familiar with the site know that some of our more prolific members are no longer with us.
