    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: band started up again + work is hellish with last minute vacationers. will return asap but I'm like emotionally/creatively tapped

    Edit/Update: September 3rd: Will be around when I can (Sunday evenings/Monday mornings/all day Tuesday). Things are balancing out with some good news coming to me. This means good news for threads/graphics. There is a possibility I could drop off the face of the earth unexpectedly, but as always get Nolan to yell at me.

    Date Leaving: October 6th

    About the Absence: Roadtripping to New Hampshire from the 6th-15th (get at me, friends) during which I'll probably be absent unless I bring my laptop (undecided). Once I get back I'll be scarce for a week, as I've got a full week of subbing already booked!

    Name: Bee
    Status: Absent AF
    Characters Affected: everybody
    Date Leaving: 9/30/17
    Date Returning: TBA
    About the Absence:

    I apologize profusely to everyone I'm threadding with, but I've got some major life changes coming up that require my full focus on my family. I know I'm going to leave a lot of people hanging and it pains me to leave on such short notice, but I'm not in a good place now and I have absolutely no extra energy to devote to RP. I won't be gone forever, but I will be MIA for a while. I may pop in to say hi, but probably will only be phone lurking for the foreseeable future.

    Characters Affected: See CML, please!
    Date Leaving: 10/6/17 - though if I'm being honest, it was about 2 weeks ago...
    Date Returning: Tentative date of 11/1/17
    About the Absence:
    I'm not in the head space for RPing at the moment! RL has been taking priority lately, which means less focus on Charming. Considering that, there's definitely going to be some character cuts come the AC - I think I've spoken to everyone I'm considering dropping - but I'm sorry to everyone I owe things to, I know I've been slacking, and I feel bad. <3

    Date Leaving: October 16
    Date Returning: October 20
    About the Absence:
    This is more of a warning, really. I have midterms for my College Algebra and Intro to Literature class that week, which means I'll be studying. I can't totally get rid of Charming for that week, though, because it's my stress-reliever and I'll definitely need something to relieve my stress. Hopefully it won't affect much!

    About the Absence: I got a 9 week job in Cambridge which is great I guess but I start Monday. MONDAY. I don’t have a place to live and I’m gonna be all out of whack with schedule. I've fixed the no computer thing now, I finally bit the bullet and invested in a proper tablet/laptop replacement so I should be good to go on that front mid-week.

    About the Absence: this is awful because I just came back from an absence, and then I was scarce but until everything school and exams are out of the way I won’t be able to post (or really do much). But, after Christmas/New Year everything should be back to normal!
