ArbCom wants to appoint some new CUs and oversighters.

Anyone who wants to apply, do it now, because there's only about ten hours left to do it.

Not that no one noticed. No one cared.

In other news, Dominic resigned his CU/OS (again?) and User:Bahamut0013 (T-H-L-K-D) has disappeared again.

If you had actually read that userpage, you'd know that this was because he has apparently passed away.

(Blanked the original content of this post, as it appears that he left the Marines in May.)

AFAIK, Bahamut left the service at some point in the past year. He speaks on his blog about 'his last day in uniform'.

Since he hadn't updated his blog or edited Wikipedia since May, he must have been sick. If so, I won't speculate on the nature of it, although what he says on his userpage may provide a clue.

The nearly contentless obituary I found for him combined with his other statements suggests that he committed suicide.
