    Hi all,

    It is with deep regret that we make another announcement regarding a member who has unexpectedly passed away. It is with great sadness that GoinStag died on April 3rd 2018, aged 23. Those of you who have been around for a while may remember interacting with him at some point, as he was a long-time active poster right up until July 2017. According to his profile, he was still browsing the site up until the end of last month.

    Unfortunately, we don't have any other details regarding the circumstances of his death, but it is known through his engagement with this site and news articles that he was experiencing considerable hardship. Due to this, it is vital that we once again emphasise the importance of looking after each other, getting help and support when we need it, and never being afraid to talk when you are struggling. Even when we're in our darkest place and we feel like nobody around us cares or wants to hear about our problems, it is cases like these which prove that this isn't true and that we do care for each other. Any death in the community is always unfair, too soon and a tragedy.

    We also cannot emphasise enough the real consequences which potentially occur for those experiencing hardship but do not get the adequate support they need, even in a safe space like EC. Situations like these will always be a painful reminder of how short and precious life is, but we should also use them to ensure that we remain vigilante of our own needs, as well as each others, so that the consequences of ill-health and hardship are never permanent. We are always stronger when we never stop looking after ourselves, and when we actively reach out to support each other.

    GoinStag's account has now been placed into the In Loving Memory group, and now features alongside JayHew, Andreus and Cynic.

    Rest in peace, GoinStag.

    From EC Staff.

    Rest in peace, GoinStag. I don't recall ever interacting with you, but you will not be forgotten. It's a shame you left this world so young.

    I havent interacted with GoinStag but I offer my deepest condolences to those who are friends with him. It breaks my heart that another member of our community has to leave too soon. GoinStag, we may not have any interaction at all before but hope you bring with you good memories only of your life on wherever you are going. Rest in peace, brother.

    Now this message is for YOU, who ever you are reading this,


    I want to echo what Martin said. We have to look for each other here in this site. Please. Let us be vigilant of the members here who obviously needs help and make the first move to talk to them. PLEASE. Most people here in EC are very shy and kinda intimidated of talking to a member so let us make the first move to communicate with them. A percentage of those people are probably desperate for someone to talk to. Brothers, sisters, family, let us be there for each other. Let's help and support each other. Please.

    I love you all. And you can ALWAYS come to my profile and message me if you need someone to talk to, it doesnt really matter if its serious or not. And the people here are more than happy to talk too so dont be shy!

    - Cyril, the Green Ranger

    Rest in peace! It's always sad. I do agree though. We do need to look after each other. Also if any of you are depressed and think of hurting yourself or ending your life and you feel like you don't have anywhere to turn to we are here! The staff is always here to help us and I also am always here to talk to anyone who is going through tough times. I can't promise you I can fix everything with the snap of my fingers but I'm always here to listen and give the best advice I can give.

    This is awful and shocking news, indeed.

    I hadn't talked to him for a while, but I did consider Gabe a friend, back in the old EC chat days. He could have his better and worse days, as do we all, but if I saw his name online, I'd always hop by for a chat.

    I'll definitely raise a glass to his memory. Sweet dreams, Gabe. You'll be gone but not forgotten!

    Tragic...upsetting too, even though I never knew him.
