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
This type of Leave of Absence is intended for those players who do not anticipate being able (or willing) to check the site for an undetermined amount of time. A list of currently registered indefinite LOAs will be kept below.

Code: [Select]
[b]Name:[/b]

[b]LOA Effective Date:[/b]

[b]Plot Proxy:[/b] (Ignore this field if you are not a Plot Leader)

[b]May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?:[/b]

[b]If so, please list the preferred method of contact:[/b]

[b]Other Notes:[/b] (Optional)

Current indefinite LOAs:
Kookie



Scheduled LOA
This type of Leave of Absence is intended for those players who have a temporary event or period of time that they will be away from the site, with a predictable return date. Use this type of LOA if you're traveling or have some other temporary business that will keep you away.

LOA Effective Date: April 28th -  May 23rd, 2018.

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?: Yes, all of my plots will continue as expected. I'm doing lots better, but please, still a bit unsteady energy wise. If I forget any threads just remind me. I love chatting in discord when I can. <3 I do have a thread, if there's specific story threads anyone wants me to post on that aren't big group threads here. Only a couple have used it, but feel free to ask for a post/thread!

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

Other Notes: Starting up physical therapy for known issues, swapped out some docs and pain meds (again) so I'd probably call this medium level LOA. I'll still be gently plucking my way through threads I owe posts for, I'm not dropping or shoving any of my plots under a rug, promise! I'm just super slower than I'd like. Review Council stuff can be on normal speed. Choo-choo!  8) ;D

Reason/Other Notes: I'm going to South Dakota to visit Dany/i!

DN STUFF: Since Dany and I will be together and unreachable at the same times, if you have things that just can't wait until I get back or just overall questions, please hit up Rated Em and Reid for all things in DN. If you need sign off from me specifically, it will have to wait until I am back.

Phe access: In theory, I will have Discord as long as I have phone service, but I won't be as tied to my phone as I generally am. Feel free to ping, just realize it may take me a bit to get back to you <3

LOA Effective Date: June 20th - June 27th.

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

If so, please list the preferred method of contact: Via DM or email. Please do not tag me in anything as I've temporarily left the BR discord channel because I am not the most disciplined individual and if I see fun happening, I'm going to want to take part but I need to be more focused on reigning in some of my less than ideal stuff.
 

Other Notes:  I behaved in a not super dope manner in a public space (i said really shitty things to a person, and popped off at the mouth without empathy, courtesy or respect for people involved).

I need to step back and reconsider my approach to shared spaces and how to be a better member of the community and I know that without taking and labeling the time to do so, it'd be much easier for me to bury my head in the sand and pretend it didn't happen.
mostly i am an absentee parent to all my fictional creations.
sometimes i have inappropriate public reactions by which i am later mortified.

LOA LIGHT Effective Date: 8/31/18 to 2/8/19

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA-LIGHT with questions about the site?: Yes, please do! I want to write, plot and be involved! It’s just that I have to wait until February to get my surgery, and my hiatal hernia and out-of-place organs are not being polite about the wait. My pain is -way- down from what it was, but breathing problems have gone to a whole new level. Which is good news, because it means I can write, when I’m breathing! Going into the winter rains, I hope to write a lot, but I can’t gaurentee it.

If so, please list the preferred method of contact: Discord is best, but Facebook or site PM will reach me eventually!

LOA  FULL Effective Date: 2/8/19 - 3/8/19
my surgery should be fri 2/8 or the week of 2/11. It will take two weeks to get to walking and moving about, and another two before I can eat solid food. I will try to put in my face claims / waivers early for the end of February but if I mess up please contact me!
In great news, my pain, asthma, breathing and eating issues should be way down after my surgery! Both my surgeon and my Doctor anticipate a huge increase in quality of life!!!

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?:
Yes, please! I would love to hear from you but no promises as to how coherent I’ll be until I can eat real food again. It’s a major surgery to put my internal organs where they belong!

If so, please list the preferred method of contact: again Discord is best! Facebook and site PM is fine, but will not ping me right away. I should, after the first week or so, even be able to enjoy a phone call with out my body punishing me! Yay! I can’t -wait -!

LOA Begin & End Dates: Now-ish to October 1

Reason/Other Notes: We will be moving at the end of September, lots going on at work, general stress level is stupid-high. If I get the urge to write I may post here and there, or you may see a post dump sometime in the next week, I'm not sure. But it's also possible that I just don't show up again until October when things have calmed down.

Other Notes: I am gonna be starting a new career, have a family member who is dying, am getting hitched and have about 1000000000 doctor appointments before attempting to start a family this year. I'll still be writing but am gonna be backing off of some of my periphery characters, not making new ones unless essential, and actively trying to lighten my writing load. How much depends a lot on IRL stuff. I'll still be here for DT for sure and any major plots.
Home is behind, the world ahead, And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night, Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back to home and bed.

Other Notes: This is more a little bit of an LOA-Lite.   I'm buckling down and studying hard core in my free time for the CompTIA A+ Cert and have set myself the deadline of the end of the month to take the exam.  There are some new opportunities at work that I'm hoping to take advantage of and so I want to dig in and get this done.  I have some things on my writing to do list and if I need a minute or two of downtime from studying, I will post.  I just might not be around so much.
