    "What will you personally miss the most...?"

    What will you personally miss the most when the 'inexorable grind' of the clock prevents you from accessing your chess games, the public and private clubs and clan forums or replying to personal messages from your friends on Red Hot Pawn? I for one will miss conversation with my trusted global friends when that day inevitably comes as it has already for my dear departed friends: @Mathurine: “Last moved 1437 days 1 hour and 8 minutes ago.”; @Kings-and-Pawns: “Last moved 1169 days 19 hours and 32 minutes ago.”; @DanTriola: “Last moved 609 days 2 hours and 44 minutes ago.”; and most recently @mikelom: “Last moved 95 days 8 hours and 6 minutes ago.”.

    Aren't you burying Mathurine prematurely?

    "I have decided to leave the site for an indefinite period. I have really not been terribly well of late..." ~Mathurine / Thanks for your interest; for your information she alluded to the possibility that her illness may become terminal in one of our personal message conversations.

    My interest is only in not killing someone before their time. Couldn't she still be among the living?

    Neither you nor I possess the power required to become guilty of "killing someone before their time". Hope Mathurine returns....

    The thread title is enclosed with quotation marks because it's comprised of the first seven words of the verbatim text:

    I returned a couple of days ago to play a game here. A lot has changed during the three years that I was gone. RHP looks like it is trying to add some of the features that have long been part of that Other site where I now play most of my games.

    The RHP forums took a distinct turn for the worse around early June last year.

    How so? I remember the debates about a separate spirituality forum. That removed much of the nonsense from the general forum almost ten years ago.
