    Absence List
    #1
    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!

    Code:
    [b]Name:[/b]
    [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:
    Absent: April 3rd to April 7th-ish
    K, here's the deal, I am going to be productive in real life. I know, scary right?
    I'm just starting college yikes, and I'm gonna try to get all settled and also, I really want to get more of my art work (yes I am an artist like Acacia, though not nearly as talented), I want to finally get started on my book (I'm an artist in more ways then one, I have theater as one of my classes to, impressed yet?  ;)  ) and other stuff in my life needs to get done. I procrastinate that book so muck that its not even funny.
    If I come on here during this absent time, yell at me to go work on my book, homework, or art. As some of you may know, I procrastinate. Please, help me out by saying to go away, haha.
    Scarce: April 7th-ish to No Clue
    I do not know my professors. I do not know how much they love homework. I do not know how productive I shall be with everything else. Until that is figured out, I really don't know how often I will be able to be on. Wish me good luck.
    As I always say when I post these things, please flood my networking and graphics if you have the time. I would be super grateful to see a bunch of threads to reply to so my characters don't go inactive. And PLEASE look at my adoptables!! I love it when someone can adopt one!!
    Before I go, I am trying to reply to as much as I can. I'm sorry if I miss a thread or more before I get back. And oh my gosh I always flood my absence post, I'm sorry.

    About the Absence: Today is the day everything breaks, apparently. The vehicle, my laptop and Jeremy's cosplay mask. I'm hoping whatever is wrong with my computer is fixable but we shall see. I have iPad and Jeremy is letting me borrow his work laptop and I should be able to get posts done. I DON'T LIKE IT THOUGH, with it's touchscreen, weird login requirements and wannabe futuristic, iRobot bullshit. I want my cruddy old timer laptop back. -weeps and ends rant-

    IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWNNN...
    /the last update to this absence I stg.

    Name: MJ
    Status: Scabsent
    Characters Affected: All
    Dates: Absent: Now - 20th April
    Scarce: 20th April - 24th May
    About the Absence: The first date is my dissertation deadline, and I've been working on it for what seems like ages but it's been going at a snail's pace, welp. I'll still be dropping in occasionally and doing as many staff chores & graphics as I can, but writing-muse-wise, the dissertation is top priority.
    After that, my exams are spread out from the 5th - 24th May, so revision will be my top priority. That said, I'd take exam revision over essay-writing any day, so I'll hopefully be around and posting as usual in my study breaks! ;)
    After that... freedom, here I come!

    Status: Scarce
    Characters Affected: All of them
    Date Leaving: 4/19/2017
    Date Returning: 4/30/2017
    About the Absence: Things have been veeeeeeerrrrryyyy hectic now that the end of the semester is approaching. I've had to apply for an internship, a scholarship that would basically make me work all summer at the same place my internship would be at, and I need to write two papers, study for an exam, prepare for a debate and a final poster project that I have not done anything for yet coming up next week. At least half of this sort of explains why I've been scarce regardless, though now that things are winding down I thought I'd put up a note xD

    As always I'll try to get to everything when I find the time and will hopefully save all of these stragglers come the end of the month! I hope at least some of you aren't as horrible of a procrastinator as I am.

    About the Absence: Well I have come to a point where I am just burnt out on Harry Potter roleplays. It isn't because I don't like it here. Because I love it and think it is a wonderful site. I just need a break and hopefully come back. I know that I will miss everyone

    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 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.

    About the Absence: I'm going to Amsterdam with my dad and I'm only bringing my crashy tablet. Actually, I might bring my ancient laptop since I'm going by car rather than plane. Shit it's plane on the way home. Hrmmm. I'll think some more on that. I may or may not have a lot of time in between for doing things since this isn't a sightseeing trip but business for my dad. He doesn't like traveling alone and I said I'd come along because I have an ulterior motive to get a free ride to see my oldest friend who is living and working in a town just outside Amsterdam. She has work though so I will only get to see her after that.
