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 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 -!

10/20 & ?:

Reason/Other Notes: My mom's health is is bad and my sister is having trouble taking care of her as well as the kids. I'm going home to assist. I'm taking an extended LOA from work as well. I will still be on to post to keep my spirits up but it might take time.

LOA Effective Date: January 1st - March 1st

Plot Proxy: Mu

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

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

Other Notes: my part-time freelance job is becoming my fulltime, 'support me' job and is going to be my priority for the next few months. While I may have MORE time to write, I may also not. The nature of it is also such that I may abruptly vanish so please don't take it personally if I poof in the middle of a conversation.
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.

LOA Begin & End Dates: February 1 - March 31

Reason/Other Notes: LOA Light while I wrap up a few plot points and get everyone's Activity up-to-date then I'll be going on complete LOA. I have some other projects and hobbies I'd like to focus my time and energy on for a bit.

Character Statuses:
  • Matin is going to be imprisoned by Shira for serving Elenor, and will be in solitary confinement for the foreseeable future.
  • Adel, who was troubled and unstable before he tried to assassinate his Bonded Queen under a compulsion, is experiencing a psychotic break and will be in seclusion under the care of Azar for the time being.

LOA Effective Date: 3/20 - 4/12

Plot Proxy: Mu for DT, he is reachable through Discord.

May Players continue to contact you during your LOA with questions about the site?: you are welcome to send me messages in Discord but I will be in another time zone and not online much, so it may take a little time to reply

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

Other Notes: I will be in Italy! I have promised the boyo my (mostly) undivided attention so I will only be online when we are vegging after long days of eating and running around the tuscan countryside.
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.

LOA Effective Date: 3/12/19- I'm not entirely sure, hopefully the end of May or sooner?

Plot Proxy: Dany is my official plot proxy for DN and can do sign offs in my place. To help with DN, Dany, Reid, Em, and Gavin are all pitching in to keep things going. For things relevant to specific Guilds, please check with your Guild Leader (Reid: Jacks, Em: Shaos, Gavin: Myos, Dany: Mourning Doves and Keels level guild things). For Territory Court, please check with Gavin, Reid, and Em as the writers of Sora and the Triangle while Riley is nesting.

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 is my go to, followed by email.

Other Notes: We just found out that after living here for over 10 years, we need to move. Moving poly households is a PITA for a number of reasons, but the real issue is that this comes at the worst time as the current real estate market in the greater Seattle area is devastatingly expensive. We are likely going to have leave the area we live in as well as our home.

I have spent the weekend trying to assess how much writing I will be able to do during this process, and I'm honestly not sure. This is a major life change for my family and my kiddo who has already had one hell of a year and it's only March. I'm asking for patience.

If there is something that you really need that you are depending on me for, please reach out to me via Discord and we can plot other ways to make it work or see if we can tie it off in a succinct manner.

LOA Effective Date: 3/17/2019 - ? hopefully only a month or so

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 is best, as i'll super still be about.

Other Notes: Hey, folx, I've got some brain stuff and some doctoring stuff that I need to be dealing with better than I am. Trying to keep up here is something i'm both a) not doing so hot at, which is contributing negatively to self-image whatsits; and b) doing instead of running the forum i'm actually in charge of, which is suffering for the neglect, and is thus contributing negatively to said brain stuff also. I love you and I'm not goin anywhere. This site is one of the best flavors of escapism I've indulged in in a long long time. But I gotta focus elsewhere and get my shit straight before a rut becomes a a ditch becomes a hole.

LOA Begin & End Dates: April 1-April 26th

Reason/Other Notes: Thank you all for being so patient with my absence. This is basically to notify I should be able to actually dedicate time again sometime at the end of April.

I hated and then ultimately quit my job in September, which sort of threw my entire life into disarray. Started a coding bootcamp in January, which graduates April 9th. I've got some post-grad plans for a vacay, and after that, I look forward to hopefully finding room in my life for this site which has always and will always matter to me.

Thanks. Love you all.
