I don't have a lot of information but Skinty McEdger who was a regular poster on here for many years appears to have died. He was in poor health for awhile it seems. Skinty was a really good poster here, something I think everyone will agree on which is pretty rare in these parts. I don't have any details I am sorry to say. I just wanted to post this so we could remember someone who was a good wrestling poster.

EDIT: I saw someone ask about donations. Skinty stayed at the Canterbury Pilgrims Hospice in the UK and I can say, it was a great experience and he was so comfortable there, as was I and his friends/family that visited him nonstop. Staff there are all incredible and he had a really meaningful connection with the doctor there. He wanted donations to be made to there if you are so inclined: https://www.pilgrimshospices.org/get-involved/donate/

It was cancer, he'd reached out to Hulkamatt right before he died and his family confirmed it. Awful.

I was thinking of posting a thread about this myself but the news really gutted me and I couldn't think of the right thing to say.

Skinty & I talked almost exclusively through AIM and he was one of the only reasons I would still have AIM open on my computer all the way up until it completely shut down. We added each other on Facebook after that, but I don't check FB nearly as much as I do Twitter, Discord, and other types of things.

I happened to log on during Valentines Day and saw he had left me a message on the 6th letting me know that he was dying. I responded and had hoped he was still alive, but after doing some digging and seeking out his family the next day, I realized that it was already too late.

He'd been suffering from cancer for a while, but he didn't want it to be super public as he didn't want others to worry about him.

Skinty was an amazing person who helped me through a few rough patches in my life. He always knew exactly the right thing to say to cheer me up. Gave me a lot of good quotes. I really wish AIM wasn't completely gone, because those logs were nice to go back and look at sometimes.

His mother told me that shortly before he died, he said "I'm not frightened of dying, I've had a great life, had a lot of fun and laughs, and made some fantastic friends." He passed peacefully with his family around him.

He was a special guy and I'll have nothing but good memories of him. My life was better having known him.

I already miss him.
