    Was truly saddened to read the message of his passing when logging onto the site today.

    RIP Izzy.

    Easily, they can either make a stickied topic or a sub forum. We can make it that you need at least 1000 posts to be considered and when someone is nominated you need to get 75% yes vote to become a Bulldogs Forum Immortal. The votes are in a seperate topic as to not blemish the actual HOF topic.

    Probably also make it only mods can post in the topic, and a post is only an entry into the HOF.

    Hi all,

    I'll be updating with funeral details when I get a confirmation of date.

    @Wahesh I believe the forum is getting a refresh over the off season (Xenforo v2 upgrade and relocation to local Sydney DC).

    There are a few ideas in the mix, however custom user titles and and in memoriam are a few ideas. As bad as it sounds, we'd be hoping not to have too many users "In Memoriam", so a subforum would be overkill.

    @Nash is the guy that can answer the above though :).

    Doesn't have to be just people that have passed away. We can have a HOF for legends of the board. For example Tank 2.0 would be another inductee.

    Cancer is a effing bitch.

    RIP to the gentleman. Devastating. Absolute shattering. Sounded like a fighter though... got an extra year on his lease.

    Least he got to hear Des get the sack.

    No matter what you say brother you're a legend here. All the ones you named should be in also.

    I think we should start with 10 H.O.F inductees and add 1 person every year. Start with maybe-

    Izzy Forreal
    Drop Bear

    Tank 2.0
    south of heaven
    dogluva

    And 5 others for the first year.

    Would allow us to pay them the proper respect and no matter what happens they will never be forgotten.

    Like others have said, Izzy was a real gentleman and deserves to be honoured.

    My condolences goes out to your family.

    Always heartbreaking to hear another person lose their life to cancer especially another bulldog brother. May you rest in peace, and you look out for your family and bulldog family as well while you up there.

    You are one of the few who have agreed with me over the years in regards to Hasler, and im glad you got to see him sacked and that it put a smile on your face

    You too bro, don't sell yourself short - especially after everything you've been though.

    Welcome to the kennel. Your first post and certainly not the last I hope. Would love to hear some stories about your Granddad.

    HOF ideas are in motion... unlikely to be HOF though as it creates a divide between members.

    Will either be "In Memoriam", or possibly a subforum for our Kennel members doing it rough or in rememberance (e.g R U OK threads and those in memoriam, etc).

    You just did ...

    Welcome to the site... my condolences to you and your family during this difficult time. Izzy was very well respected here, and I'm glad to have been a member posting alongside him ... His comments were always fair and level headed. ... he'll be sorely missed here.

    How does it cause a divide? If anyone gets hurt that they aren't in it then they don't deserve to be in it.
