    The Hiatus thread

    I noticed lately that there are a lot of people making threads every time they go away for a short period of time...

    Of course, it would be best to inform people that you are going to be away, so that nobody will wonder why you're suddenly gone. But making a whole thread just because you're going to be away for, say, 3 days, is too much...


    Therefore, I now create this thread in order to solve this problem. If you are going to be going away for a period of one week or less (Length still debatable), then post your reason, and how long you are going to be away, in this thread.

    Of course, you shouldn't obviously abuse this thread. If you are going to be away for obvious reasons (like sleep), then don't post here anymore.

    If you are going to be away for longer than a week, that's when it would be okay to make a thread.

    Also, could a moderator please sticky this, so that every member would be able to see this and know where to post if they are going to be away for only a short period of time.

    I'm going to the toilet now. I'll cry for each one of you, cos this forum is like my blood.

    Seriously though, this needed doing. I'm so fed up of people posting stupid absences. Unfortunately, I reckon the majority of people who do - without meaning any slur on their character - are more likely just after the attention that comes with a 'THIS IS ALL ABOUT ME" kind of thread than actually intending to usefully inform people where they're going.

    Don't overestimate how much people will miss you if you go for a day.

    Okay, from now on, I'm just going to lock all silly absence threads.

    ...you have NO IDEA. Yes... I AM that important... =P

    ...yeah right.

    Anyway, this is a good idea... I'll have to REMEMBER to use it when I (inevitably) dissappear again.

    As for now, the trend is that I'm out the weekends. Yay Work~!
    This week will be slow for me too, as it's Thanksgiving Break from school... And I'll be spending most time at work or with friends.
    (IE, not holed up in front of a computer. )

    Damn you Ryo! I'm your friend :3 Thus, you must be holed up on your computer whether you like it or not. You is my bish!

    this might be better than taking up a thread to say you'll be gone a day or two.

    People do like to be kept informed. You miss people when they're not on at their normal times and things, so an absence thread might be good

    It wasnt aimed at you mandi. Its for those threads that people create when they're going to be absent for the weekend or for a couple of days. Yours was alright, since supposedly you were leaving forever.

    Yeah, the threads that were about "I'll be gone for these days" aren't really needed.

    ...was that 'friend' or 'pimp' that you were? <__<;;;
    Anyway, sorry... Life takes precidence... Even if I DO love you so. ^_~


    So now, to give this thread some actual use...
    Seeing as though it's Tuesday... And I dont have school Wednesday - Sunday due to Thanksgiving Break...
    ...I'll probably not be around much after tonight.

    I'll pop in occasionally when I have time, but I work doubles Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday... And the nights are gathering times with friends...
    ...so, yeah.

    I'll probably see most of you on Monday. ^_^;;;

    If we waste any more time on "THIS", we'll be bankrupt by the end of the month.

    Did someone just say "THIS"?
    'cause I think I just heard someone say "THIS".

    TH-I-S! TH-I-S!
