it's just a wee idea i had, there might be another one, or it might not work. either way, a mod can delete it if it's not needed etc.

just thought, all the time there are threads from people saying they'll be away for a while, or they can't get online, or they're just downright leaving because of RL. so, i guessed a thread where people can just announce it might save mata's space, which is always a good thing.

unsure.gif

some feedback on this??

That's a good idea, Pie smile.gif Particularly recently there have been lots of these threads, and a central organisation for them would save space.

Yes but perhaps it could be pinned as people tend to leave in groups. Not that they all leave to be together or they are sheep but I just noticed that there seem to be a lot recently and then there will be none for ages and then another bunch smile.gif If it's pinned then it won't get lost when no one leaves for a while. Plus we can remember who's left and see if they come back. What about a welcome back thread too?!?!?! unsure.gif

wow, an idea that works? *proud*
if someone pinned this, that would be awesome. someone else can make the welcome back thread if they want?

and lilac, it was just a couple of people who have RL commitments, like leo and missy, not to worry.

Yeah it just happens I guess. I don't get that much time to get on here if I'm busy at work (my connection is work based) and I can't get on during the evening as I don't own a computer or have internet access at home (too expensive sad.gif). RL means real life by the way. Sorry if you knew that already biggrin.gif

And while we're here, I'm going to be away for a while as of the end of this week, as I'm moving back to Blighty, and it'll be a good few weeks before I'm in a flat and got my laptop hooked up to the interweb.

Nice idea, Pie! smile.gif

Well, I s'pose I'd best put in here that, while not entirely absent forever, I'm hardly ever around any more. RL is just too damn interesting these days* for me to spend my time lurking on the 'net and giving fellow netites hugs. I'd much rather spend the time with the new woman in my life, and the three kids, and brushing up for my MCSE (which is still 18 months off completion, realistically).

* Apart from the job. That still sucks large style.

Anyways, anyone who wants to get in touch can do so using my email addy, which is leopold@leagueofish.co.uk. Yep, the site is gone but the addy lives on!!

You can but try.

I suppose that I should mention that I'm not away in any form. I'm just a little nervous in myself at the moment and, while I check in several times a day, am not posting a great deal.

Well this is my "Official Thread for Being Away for a While".

Just incase anyone happens to go ohmy.gif wonder where that Enslaved person is. She hasn't been spamming the threads of late. But its highly unlikely that thought will occur in anyones mind.

So yes, I am officialling going to be away from here from Mar 15 - 22 cuz I have to go on a frikken stupid holiday with my mum to Bali. (she couldn't find anyone that could afford to go with her so she said she'd pay for me to go, which is the only reason I'm going) So I'll be grumpy the whole time (unless I find an internet cafe, which is possible). *Considers being drunk the whole time cuz that would be fun*

So yeh, "being away for a while".

*hopes she doesnt get bombed* sad.gif

Hehe, thankyou. Yes, I get quite easily distracted and start taking about random things / questions instead of just relpying. My bad sad.gif

I'm sure I will have a good holiday, I am looking forward to it (cept I will be paranoid the whole time, wondering when the bomb is gonna fall... AAAAIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Ahhh, just fireworks rolleyes.gif

I will be back (with pictures), or in a body bag sad.gif
