We have some unfortunate news which was confirmed by Dani and Prit. Our good old friend, Melvin aka Ancient Dragon passed away on Aug 21, 2014. :`(
His obituary can be found here (link courtesy of Prit).
Those who have been here for a long time and those who lurk in the Software Development forums would surely know of his contributions and the impact he made on the community as a whole. He loved gaming and was passionate about programming and helping out others.
RIP Mel, you and your contributions will surely be missed...
