Message: Posted by: User101 (Oct 22, 2020 12:46PM)
I posted a thread both informing (if people didn't know) and a memoriam to James Randi it was removed,yep maybe it was in wrong thread,but a search brings up no other threads with his name. Can someone clarify?

There are at least 3 other topics announceing his death. Another one wasn't necessary. A search on "james randi" would have brought those threads up.

Well I searched the term as you wrote it and get one post in an an old thread(aside from this thread). So if you can link me to a relevant thread Id appreciate it.

I'm also like to see the 3 topics about Randi's death; I also did a search and can only find one mention of his death, and it's a post on an old thread, which is now locked (https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=582974&forum=62).

Where is/are the new thread(s)?

One thread was made in the Spooky forum which was the wrong forum but was existing when User 101 made his post. It was subsequently moved today and combined with another topic.
The second topic is in the magic names forum. Only the last post in that thread references Randi's death but still relevant https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=582974&forum=62
The third topic is in the Did you hear forum https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=721470&forum=36

If you search for Randi, all the topics will come up

Thanks Dave; I had been searching "James Randi," instead of "Randi," must be why I missed those others.

Sometimes the search function is a little finicky. Admittedly, in this case you should be able to search for James Randi and get the results but you have to just search on Randi. Trial and error usually wins out.
