I occasionally get comments/notes asking about eyeballman
aka Ron Barber who is still listed as principal admin of this group. Ron suddenly passed away in 2017 but his wife and daughters wished to keep his name on here and did not remove his account as he was really dedicated to dA. They wanted to keep his work online.
Various people were informed at the time but perhaps not everyone who interacted with him here on dA realised what happened. He was always a very strong presence and it seems right this group should continue, he would have liked that.
