This year has been full of bad news; we've lost a number of well-known and well-liked celebrities. But as painful as those were, some deaths strike closer to home.
With great sadness I have to tell you that one of our moderators, Taliesen, died in early November from a medical complication. This was very unexpected news and it reached us only a few days ago, so we are still as much in shock as you are.
Tali was not only a good mod but he was also a kind and generous person. What we will miss most about him is his humor, which often lightened the mood in any thread he participated in. Magistream is less without him.
We express our condolences to Taliesen's friends and family, whose loss weighs far heavier than ours.
Thank you for your attention.
