Can this community find something appropriate to do in memorium of the passing of one of its strongest contributors? Mark Joshi died of a heart attack last month. See https://www.wilmott.com/memoriam-professor-mark-joshi/
One thing that could be attempted is to have a small nod (a hat tip?) to him or Easter egg in the customized design for this site, if and when we get it.
I don’t know whether that is feasible or appreciated but it might be worth a try.
Thank you for status-reviewing this Bob so that it came to our attention. I think it would be lovely to find a fitting tribute to Mark.
We had a few ideas that have come up internally
- We could potentially do a small "easter egg" somewhere on the site to have a line about Mark, a quote of his, possibly an image somewhere. We'd your thoughts about what you'd have in mind there.
- We aren't able to currently build a new custom page but we could customize the 404 page to mention him, if that feels appropriate, that might not be the right space but I wanted to throw that out since it's an option.
- The moderators on sites have the ability to customize site tour and add a line about Mark to the end of the tour.
Let me know if any of these seem like options that would be fitting or that your community would be interested in. Also please do comment if you have alternative ideas. We'll see what's feasible but we'd love to help you get a fitting tribute to Mark in place.
