This is a thread to informally note that you'll have lower activity for a span of time. There are no templates or rules here, and nothing posted in this thread will grant you extra time to make posts (use the official Away thread for that). The splitting of these functions is to allow staff to better track who is Away, for bookkeeping purposes.

So, yeah. Have at! I'm pinning this thread too, for future use and reference.

New thread to account for lost posts in the old one making it a pain to read. From the last thread:
Maraoone November 6 wrote:Hello again thread.

I have this quiz bee coming up which will require a ton of reviewing. Also, it's for the entire province, and on top of that, I have a fever. I might be able to get on, but I don't think I'll be able to post at all.
Psychedelic November 6 wrote:Mostly for mafia players and the mini site: I'll try to do something tonight. My grandma had to go to the hospital again, and I didn't sleep at all last night, but now I have classes in a few hours, so I need some rest. I'll do some catching up after some more rest after I come home.

To those I owe a response of some kind, I'm going to try and work through my siblings. (albeit this is going to be rather awkward) I just want you guys to know why I once again am running behind, and am so truly sorry.

Also, to those it may concern, I'm going to try and move Mischief Managed tomorrow, pending approval from the staff based on the DZ.

Just an update, to those it might concern.

The visit to my optometrist basically confirmed that I'll be needing glasses - so far, that looks like all that's wrong, thankfully. Unfortunately, my eyes are screwed up enough that I'll almost certainly have to list myself as Away for the next week or so while waiting for them, but at least it seems I'll be able to return to full activity after that.

Sorry for any inconveniences I'm causing.

Computer broke, so I'm on a shared one until I get a new one for Christmas. Posting will be kinda erratic until then.
