Absence Thread

Will you be away from Standing Trials for a few days, a week, a month? Do you need a quick & easy way to let your thread partners, mods, or friends know?

Post your expected absences to this thread!

Here's an example of what your post might look like: "I will be out of town from August 19th - August 29th, so posting may be slower than usual. Try not to murder my favourite NPCs while I'm gone!"

I think it's less that you're a dictator, more that you don't seem to control your emotions well. I don't think you're a very good person to be in charge of handling bans or disciplinary action, because I've been in at least two situations with you where you've upset me greatly by getting extremely angry, unreasonable, and making it a mission to make me look bad.

Give that responsibility to someone else, and focus on making ST amazing as a writer, and as a developer. I don't want ST to be another Miz, and I'm glad we're all talking about our issues and we're open to change, I think that's what's important here, and where we've excelled.

Anyway, I'm going to be away from the site for the most part during my Summer vacation unless my planned events don't pan out. Hopefully things have improved on ST by then, because things are getting pretty toxic and it's making me weary to invest my time writing here.

Also Alistair, Fridgar

It's entirely possible that, given time, you'll come to enjoy this place again. I hope to see you guys around, I know I've stuck thing through despite the frequent storms of mud. I was doing the same thing with Miz, but here it's different. I see a lot of potential, and I don't see the downward trend like I see it in that other place. Everyone makes mistakes, and it's important to forgive and let live.

Just wanted to pop in and make known that I may be very spotty in the next few days due to a family reunion :D I will still make a surprise appearance over the course of the weekend, though!

A lot of issues in IRL have recently occurred, so I just wanted to let people know that I won't be able to be active on the site until I'm in a better state of mind.

Reached an end to my week-long largely inconsequential absence. As such, I'll be resuming all previous activity with renewed vigor.

I'm about to jump on a plane for work, and will be sporadically on for the next 3 days! If I am slow replying to people sorry. Back to regular posting by Saturday.

So, I guess I should say now im going on another hiatus from the site. I'll still be around to talk this time, unlike the last absence, but I'm so depressed I can't really get myself to write anything at all even if I force it. I'm barely taking care of myself, there's a lot of pressure on me (who is barely handling being alive right now) to get a job which would just make everything I'm dealing with way worse, and all that fun stuff. So yeah...sorry to people who I owe replies to, if you want to end the threads I wont stop you since I dont know how long it will be until I am able to write again...

Hey guys,

I've been absent lately as the national project I am heading up is coming to a head. I'll be back as soon as I can.
