    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've been dealing with some health issues and that ofc means school is becoming heavy load. I really hope it clears soon, I miss this place dearly :(

    Date Leaving: I've been scarce all month tbh XD
    Date Returning: Asap, I'll say end of March for now.
    About the Absence: Yep, I suck and am covering my bases for the AC, but basically: final year of uni is burying me. This was my week "off", and in the last two days alone I've had to send off a Master's application, do a week's worth of Latin and write a whole essay, and here I am having not found any time to write my dissertation... Basically it's A Lot right now, and because of that my posting energies are low. I'm still trying to be around as much as possible and I'm hoping I'll get a handle on things sooner rather than later (y'know, before exam season, hahahaha no). Shouldn't be a complete absence, just excuses for why I'm Stressed and slow on the reply front, sorry friends!

    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 ;)

    Name: Bree
    Status: Scarce or Absent
    Characters Affected: All of them!
    Date Leaving: April 7; April 10-April 22; May 9-May 20
    Date Returning: May 21
    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!

    Name: Lynn
    Status: Scarce
    Characters Affected: All!
    Date Leaving: March 5
    Date Returning: March 28
    About the Absence:
    March 5-6, visiting DC with my Mom. Absent those days.
    March 8-21, visiting Jack in Seattle. I won't even really be properly scarce, because Jack still has to work those days, but like PSA I'll be in a different time zone and won't be on much on weekends.

    March 22-28, Jack will be here with me and helping me move so I'll be properly scarce. I'll still be available through all the usual means.

    FOR THE REST OF MY SCARCITY, I'm only going to take time to post if it's a plot related, time sensitive thread. This includes the following:
    • LOCK: Rock, Sandcastles, the Match
    • LOU: Return thread
    • BEN: Ben/Olivia, Ben/Aldous
    • TIB: Thunder & Lightning
    • Ophelia: Balt/Armando
    • Thom, Eli, Topaz: Nadda, kids. come on losers do something exciting
    • but maybe Cashli or Angeli if I'm in the mood

    So if you aren't one of those posts, stfu. I'll be back next week.
