I don't think that is the one, but its definitely worth reading. The crash in this story occurs in Canada's rocky mountain range I think (not sure what that mountain range was called).

edited to add: Reason its incomplete and inactive is the author died or something. One of many writers we have lost over the years.

He died, I believe last year.

Here is a quote from his profile on SOL:

Admin: Celtic Cowboy passed away on Tuesday, September 10th, 2013. R.I.P.

Edited to add: It would be nice when their death is verified or whatever if the ADMIN would also add that info to the profile area of their page. The blog statements can disappear regularly but that profile seems to stick.

i keep asking for the inactive stories to be removed after a certain amount time has past

I believe if you have a premier subscription you can "exclude" inactive stories in the SOL search engine.

Yes, if you have a premier subscription you can do all kinds of extra things with the category search. One of those things is excluding inactive/incomplete stories.

However, there are many incomplete/inactive stories that many people think are worth reading, which is why redlion75's request will never be implemented.

Never is a long time. But I hope you are right. Some of the incomplete stories are abandoned by the author for his own reasons. But when authors die or become unable to write due to illness, it seems to me their work, their stories, should live on.

You never know, someone may get permission to finish for them. I forget how many years Shiloh sat in limbo before I was given permission to finish it for The Scot.

Also consider that some of those are well worth reading even if incomplete and inactive. The way they fire up the imagination can be great.

Doc by Kingkey was reactivated after 2 years 3 months or so. It has had several long breaks, having been started in 2010. I think it is another good example of why that policy is likely not to be implemented.

You beat me to that comment. No doubt everyone has an example of an incomplete story which should not be deleted - my suggestion is the Defenceman/Dman series
