Facebook has a really cool feature called " Legacy Account ", where you designate an adminstrator to your page in the event of a tragedy.

Any chance of that happening here?

I think that's a good idea, and I'd also like to see an "In Memoriam" section, where we can move the accounts of deceased DUP members, as a place to honor them & preserve their works.

Thanks for replying! I just edited a typo!

Hopefully something can be done in the near future.

I came to this site by a deceased member. I was sad to discover her work is no where to be found. Her family discovered the site on her bank statement. They requested her du account be closed, not realizing she had written her life down through poetry. What a gift that would be to show them her work of self discovery through poetry. I would have loved to seen her writing saved by the site. Especially since she is the reason I am here.

Wow. really. That is so sad. I am glad you are here. I wish her poems were still around. That would be lovely to see and read. It would be nice to know who she was too.

I would think that maybe the Webmiss could reopen the account , if we had the username?

This is why we need a legacy account to ensure we're in control of it from the other side. 👻

Isn't it. But then the family did have it closed. Ahavati,  you are so right. If it can be done.

The thought of a family deactivating the account because they read a poem ( or any other reason ) they didn't like ( probably about them ) is disheartening. I'm sure there may be exceptions that others would consider valid, and that's fine. I just personally want the choice.

Closing bank accounts via a death is understandable. Hiding an artist's body of work to never been seen again is another.

While I have DUP in my list of things to do in case of tragedy, being namely my bank account to be closed out, that doesn't mean I want my body of work deactivated.

While my family would have the authority to close out my bank account, they do not have the authority to deactivate my DUP account for any reason.  

Therefore, let this notice stand that in the event ( God forbid ) of some tragedy that may befall me, I hereby bequeath the management of my account / body of work to JohnnyBlaze for curatorship.

Forgotten mom aka Trish
I read her notes about this site.
She was an incredible human being.
It would be fascinating to read her mind.

Thank you. I'm glad I am here.  This site is starting to grow on me.
Her avatar on here was Forgotten mom. Is it possible to read her work on here? That would be amazing. She was an incredible person. I knew her for 35 years.

If her account have been closed, then we couldn't access her poems anymore. Regretfully:)
