Suicide Note

Short, concise description of the idea
A suicide note for deleted journals.

Full description of the idea
If a person decides to delete his journal, he would have the option of leaving a final message on the "%%username%%'s journal has been deleted" page. The final message would function as an entry so that it can be accessed by a friends page, but would also stay on the journal page for the 30-day period of resuscitability.

An ordered list of benefits

  1. People may leave a parting word to the readers they like.
  2. Readers who are away still have 30 days to see why the journal was deleted.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  1. Reworking the page that displays the "this journal has been deleted" message to include the final words, if any.
  2. Figuring out how to make it function as both a regular entry (for friends pages) and the special message (for the delete page).

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

At the Delete Journal feature, the user will have the option of composing a message that will accompany the deleted journal page for its 30-day reign, but the message will also appear on the friends pages of the journal's subscribers. I was thinking that maybe the text could be called %%lastwords%% (or something) for use on the deleted journal page and then %%lastwords%% could be inserted into a final journal entry for that person.

I'm not quite sure of what "moral" (as opposed to technical) and technical problems this would present.
