I just read on Doom Wiki about the deceased members of our community. (I also read the last thread of Espi)

And I found the name of Simon Widlake. The article about him was something short and poethic, without any sources.

So I would want to ask for you: who was him and why was he dead?

He was the founder of compet-n, or at least one of its first administrators. I believe he was English and I recall him having a UK University e-mail address (Lancaster?).

I was never in contact with him, and don't know anything about his alleged death.

Moved to Demos, since the people most likely to know more will see the thread there.

Wow, I didn't have the faintest idea he'd passed away. Found an announcement about his death here.

I never had any contact with Simon myself. Once he lost interest in Compet-N in 1997 he moved on. But reading through his old textfiles you can get quite a strong sense of his personality - funny and open and friendly.
