    Absence List
    If you're going to be absent for a few days, post here! We ask that you try to give us a return date as well as a list of characters that you play. Absences over a month long may not be exempt from inactivity removal.

    If you do not post with your characters for 2 months in a row, they will be inactivated even if there is an absence posted. Notices with no return date or a date more than a month in the future will be removed after one month.

    Please use the form below so that no important information is excluded. Remember that you can post partial (posting notably slow or a break from one specific character) or full absences here!

    [b]Status:[/b] Scarce or Absent
    [b]Characters Affected:[/b]
    [b]Date Leaving:[/b]
    [b]Date Returning:[/b]
    [b]About the Absence:[/b] Optional.

    What’s the difference between scarce and absent?
    • An absent player, for whatever reason, can’t get on much—if at all—to post or chat. They might be travelling, spawning, hosting company, or particularly buried by work/school. They might need an LOA for personal or health reasons. If you’re absent, we might see you in the box occasionally, and you probably won’t be posting much. Absences can exempt a player from one Activity Check, but absent players may not create new characters as long as the notice is posted.

      A scarce player is still likely to be around, but not as frequently or as long as usual. Posts will be slower but not altogether gone. They might be wrapping up school things but (like Kayte) still around off and on, they might be under the weather but still well enough to internet, or they might just be adjusting to a change in work hours. If you’re scarce, we’ll see you less, but it won’t be so much that we’ll cry ourselves to sleep missing you. Scarce players may still make new characters, but making more than one will nullify your AC absence.

    About the Absence: I will be doing my final practicum (labor dispute is settled, huzzah!) from March 27th-May 26th. I anticipate fluctuating scarcity both in and out of character at this time, though plan to set aside at least a couple dedicated posting hours each week!

    Basically right after, I'm off to England for about two weeks, and will be almost entirely absent IC and scarce OOC. YAY ADVENTURES. On the bright side, I'll be able to show up on @Ursula Black's doorstep and harass her in person if anyone wants her to do anything ;)

    About the Absence: Alright so it's nearing the end of the school year, and many of you probably know that I'm a high school senior. April 7th is Grad Bash, which means I'll be spending the evening and night at Universal #PerksofBeinginOrlando. April 10-22 is a whole week of seniors getting prepared to graduate (having their senior picnic, finishing senior pictures, cap & gown tryouts, and then there's Prom). May 9-12 is senior exams, and then May 12th is my final day of high school! May 13 is my birthday, and then I'll probably proceed to panic for the next week, when graduation is on the 20th. I know this is in advance, but I just got my schedule for the next few months and I don't want to forget!

    About the Absence: I'm literally having an anxiety attack on a daily basis. I'm failing three classes because I've been ill/absent, and I only have three weeks until I'm completely done with high school — if I can pull my shit together and graduate. I have twenty two assignments to complete by next Thursday (fun, right?), and I have exams looming in the near future. Like stated previously, I have AP exams May 4th and 11th, and senior exams begin on the 8th.

    I'm moving to Tallahassee this summer for college (I currently live in Orlando, so ~300 miles away from home). As such, I have to work all summer to make enough money to afford to move into an apartment and last me a few weeks up there while I attempt to find a job. I've never really been away from home, so I expect it won't be the easiest adjustment I've ever made.

    Basically ,,,, I'm dying atm and won't be active very much >__>
    but yay for adulting! *strained laughter*

    Date Leaving: Now!!
    Date Returning: I don't even know guys :(
    About the Absence: OMG. I am DROWNING in work. WHY did I take on overtime classes?? Why do I insist on students submitting essays and paragraphs and journals???? WHY do I make such difficult to mark midterms??? Seriously. :( I don't know when I'll be back guys. I am seriously so busy and when I'm NOT busy, I am vegging my brain out on tv so I don't have to think for a moment, or drinking with friends who are also drowning in work. When I am not doing THAT I need to work on my novel. The goal is to edit and send it to agents before summer and/or work on it while I'm on vacation (the vacation I have literally only booked the one-way flight for and don't know anything else about). Anyway... I will seriously try to get something out soon. :( In the meantime, I totally suck.

    I'm going home on May 20th for a high school graduation/family reunion, and will be there until the 27th! This is more of a scarcity notice than anything (because lbr I'm always lurking lol), but just in case you notice if I'm less active this month! :)

    Status: Scarce then absent
    Characters Affected: all
    Date Leaving: May1st
    Date Returning: July? August?
    About the Absence: lbr I've been scarce the pst few weeks and its likely to continue through this month. Jaxon has tbal games and all sorts of end of the school year activities going on. Not to mention I've done no baby prep for the upcoming arrival of baby Hawke#3.

    I'll be absent for sure from June8th unto whenever we get acclimated with new baby. That is, if i don't miraculously go into labor before induction on the8th. I've been induced with my other2though so I'm not holding out much hope of not having to be induced.

    About the Absence: I'm burnt guys. Between emergency room visits, viral illnesses and just some general emotional upheaval, I'm exhausted. I'm going to try cutting out some screen time, read a book, go to bed early and hopefully I'll get a little refreshed. Just need a little break. Snag me on skype if you need me!

    ugh, life, it's not fun right now :(
