    Default A morbid poll

    A will is not something that i have participated in, although at my age i suppose i should have done by now.

    I am not really looking for the answer of whether or not you have written a will, however, i am more interested in whether or not you have put in place a trigger to inform your online freinds and colleagues of your demise.

    For instance if i was to drop dead now, i would probably just be on the missing list here and a few other places and then eventually forgotten.

    Why, because i have no land based friends in the industry and i am sure none of my family would ever think of posting here. Therefore you would not know that i was a gonner, had bitten the dust or whatever way you wish to describe it.

    I have no intention of popping of just yet, however, one never knows whats on the big fellas agenda.

    As i want a big send of and would like to be remembered i am now going to write a will and insist that posts are made on certain forums, here being the first to inform of my demise.

    I also want my coffin draped in a union Jack as i am entitled to it for my service and will of course mention that in my will. Another thing i will mention is that one hymn must be "The lords My Shepherd" as i always enjoy singing that when at West Brom games.

    Feel free to post your thoughts and what you would be asking for in your will if its not too private.

    LOL

    Just something that i always wonder about.

    If something happened i would hate to think that people did not know.

    I did say i have no intention of popping off just yet a while.

    Interesting Chalkie,
    I made a will, but never even considered telling any of my "online friends". I'll have to think about that one. Hmm...

    There is a facebook style social network that releases posts and messages after you die at times and dates you set before you go.
    I saw it in a magazine but cant remember the name of it. will hunt it down.

    When Jerald Spangenberg collapsed and died in the middle of a quest in an online game, his daughter embarked on a quest of her own: to let her father's gaming friends know that he hadn't just decided to desert them.
    This article has info about a service that will send out emails when you die. So your online friends know your gone and not ignoring them.

    This is something to really think about.

    I've always told the wife to just put me in the ground as soon as possible after I die and not to inform a soul. I don't want anyone to visit me in my death, that would not visit while I'm alive.

    This has crossed my mind a time or 6, nothing written yet but my wife knows my forum admins are on the cell speed dial. Prior to my last operation I wrote down all the passwords/log ins to the various ewallets and online accounts so that she could get the money out if I did not make it.

    The closest I have to a will is the advance medical directive and living will on file at the many area hospitals I have been in.

    One of these days I will scratch something out I reckon.

    I haven't done anything about informing my business friends. Though i have from time to time discussed with a couple friends the idea of helping each others family keep the business going, but never concluded any agreements.

    i would think that my wife or business partner would take my iphone and computer and go thru what they could to contact folks. But, i guess i should leave some instructions.

    Geez, now i've got another task to add to my list....

    I'm afriad I voted, "Must write a will and include instructions to tell online friends."

    It's something I've thought about but done nothing at all about.

    I guess I should sort something out, at the least so someone takes my sites and either runs them for my family on maybe a 50/50 basis for a certain time before taking ownership, or perhaps sells them for me at the best price and the proceeds given to my family as well as wrapping up the business.

    mmmm.... something to ponder!!

    Perhaps a GPWA group that does exactly that for other members?

    I don't have any intention of writing a will or informing online friends or, for that matter, any friends. I am in this respect very unsentimental. When I am gone, I am gone. That's it.

    Now that I know about the reincarnation, I have a will in my own favor with the notary, including all my affiliate accounts.

    There is a great future for the industry and I expect to enjoy it in the future.

    No will here, but roommate knows of two people to contact (online friends) and they will let the others know I've passed on.
