Formal Leave of Absence Registration
Going on vacation? Going to be AFK for some time? Or simply need a break from the insanity? No problem! Simply reply to this thread using one of the two following templates, and voila! You're on an approved LOA! No one will harass you for being a slacker or poke you for missing those all important tag backs if you don't want them to.

Please note that regardless of the type of LOA registered, the characters and claims belonging to players on LOA are still subject to loss if they are not periodically updated and maintained. If the player does not foresee themselves being able to keep up their graphics claims and Inactivity Waivers, it is their responsibility to make arrangements to have someone speak for them for the sake of those claims.

Plot Leaders on LOA must have a Plot Proxy appointed during their absence, or questions concerning their Territory will be handled by HBC.

Active players should be respectful of the wishes of players on LOA. We are all passionate about the board, but "real life" responsibilities and obligations will always come first. If a player on LOA indicates they do not want board-related communications while on LOA, players are expected to use the appropriate proxy, or to route their questions through HBC.


Indefinite LOA

LOA Begin & End Dates: now until September-ish

Reason/Other Notes: My life has been pretty crazy recently, but I have finally made the decision to move back home to Sweden to sort out myself and figure out what I want to do with my life. I should probably have written in here earlier, but yeah. I will be moving home sometime mid/late August, so my activity will continue to be very sporadic until I have managed to settle a bit back home. I apologise for being slow in answering and typing up characters in the meantime.

LOA Effective Date: July - Uncertain

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?: somewhat

If so, please list the preferred method of contact: Discord

Other Notes:

Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be able to write a whole lot for the unforeseeable future, at least on a site setting. A lot of stuff irl is going on, I'll be working two jobs (hopefully), and going back to school. It's majorly stressing me out trying to figure out when I'll have time to write without feeling out of touch with plots and things. I love how sweet you all have been, but right now I don't think it's going to work out.

LOA Begin & End Dates: Today to start of 2020 (thereabouts)

Reason/Other Notes: I will be working towards publishing a book and focusing most of my time on that. This is a very light LOA as i'd like to stay involved in the community and many plots, I just may be extra slow or disappear from time to time. Feel free to poke me for posts and plots on discord any time.

LOA Begin & End Dates: now to whenever my meds get back in

Reason/Other Notes: there's a shortage of a critical medication that i take and unfortunately this means i do not have said med. they don't know when it'll be fixed so this is just a warning that i might drop off the map w/ no notice or be more weepy/bitchy than usual depending on my mood as i have not been w/o this med for like three years now and i'm a little freaked out

thanks for understanding

LOA Effective Date: January 23, 2020

Plot Proxy: Dany

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?: Yes, absolutely!

Other Notes: This is an LOA Lite. Chronic pain is extra bad atm and I just don't know my capacity from day to day. I have some upcoming Dr visits that may or may not help, we'll find out! Wanted to give y'all a heads up as my writing and reading abilities have been super low :(

Apologies to everyone that has been waiting on me. If you need info to tie off old threads, let me know. Same if there are things we need to move on from.

LOA Effective Date: Now - next couple of weeks

Reason/Other Notes: This is LOA-lite. I'm here, just very tired and worn out due to stuff going on IRL (if only it was just the quarantine, lol) and may not be as prompt with a response. (I will discuss the reasons in private but otherwise do not wish to post why I am posting this.) Thanks for understanding.

LOA Effective Date: May 24 2020

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?: Absolutely

If so, please list the preferred method of contact: Discord would probably be the easiest bet, specifically a DM since notifications in big chats tend to get lost on me (user MeagaRae)

Other Notes: This whole world stuff is hitting me in some unexpected ways and my brain just isn't doing what I want it to. May still pop in on occasion to chip away at my WIP applications  but the creativity and inspo isn't there right now.
