4 - The Absence Thread

ABSENCES

Everyone needs to be gone at one time or another. In order to let your role-playing partners know when you will need to be gone, you can post in this thread with information about your absence. Absences can be described as short-term or long-term.

Short-term Absence

What is it?

 

A short-term absence is any absence that is longer than 3 days, or shorter than 2 months. You do NOT need to post an absence if you are only going to be gone for under 3 days. Generally, people should be patient for a few days at a time.

 

Posting in this Absence Thread will NOT save your account if you do not log into your accounts longer than 2 months. This thread is only intended as a way to tell anyone you are RPing with that you need to be gone for a time.

 

 


How does it work?

 

You should make a post below, using the following form. Please highlight the form and then select "quote" to retain the formatting:

 

Quote

Delete as required: (For quidditch, stocks and affiliations, please remember to PM your area head if you will be unable to meet requirements)

QUIDDITCH AFFILIATION STOCKS

MINISTRY MUNGO'S SHOPS CORNSWIN

 

Character Name(s):

Date you will leave:

Date you will return:

If you are not on complete absence, which areas will you continue to post in?

 
Or copy and paste the below into the posting box:

Do not post here if you are just going into a period of "slow posting". This is intended for true absences. If you find you need to cut back on posting or cannot finish a thread, you should do the polite thing and PM the person you are RPing with. If you find you are in a "slow posting" phase, you can put a message saying this in your signature.

 


What if I have more than one character?

 

If you have more than one character and need for all of them to be absent, you can either put all of their names in one form, or make a separate post with each character (this is helpful if you want to keep your alters a secret).

 

You need NOT put all of your accounts on Absence if you 'need a break' from one account.

 

 


How will being absent affect my post requirements?

 

Students who do not make minimum post count for promotion to the next year will not be excused due to an absence, and will therefore fail to advance to the next year. Adults who may have work post requirements MUST make arrangements with their work area staff member to be excused from work threads due to an extended absence. This can be arranged through a PM.

 

Be aware, however, that no account will be excused from making required posts counts due to absence if it is discovered the handler is continuing to post with their alter accounts. We DO allow excused absences from work -- but only if it's a genuine absence from the board entirely, and not a "trade-off" of posting from one account to the other.

 

 


What if I'm gone longer than 2 months?

 

BE AWARE!! Posting in this thread will NOT save your account from deletion if you do not log into your account for over 2 months. If you feel you may be gone for longer than 2 months, you need to arrange for your account to be placed on Inactive status (see instructions below).

 

If you do not log into your account for over 2 months, it will be deleted without notice.

 

 


What should I do when I return?

 

Please post in the "I've Returned" thread (with the account you posted here with) when you return, and your post in this topic will be deleted.


Long-term Absence (aka "Inactive" status)

What is it?

 

A long-term absence is any time you will need to be gone from the board for over 2 months. As stated in our ToS, any account not logged into for 2 months will be deleted without notice. However, we do allow members to be gone for up to 6 months from this board IF they place their accounts on Inactive.

 

"Inactive" status means your user group will be changed to "Inactive", and you will be unable to make any posts, nor read any posts on this board. You WILL be able to use the PM system. Your account will be saved even if you do not log on for up to 6 months. To read more about Inactive status, or to request your characters be placed on Inactive, please review +this thread.

 

 

 


By joining Potter's World you indicate that you have read and do agree to abide by these rules. Failure to do so may result in warnings, disciplinary action or removal from the boards.

hopefully I'll get it together and post in everything, but will be focusing on event, quests, and clubs

This is kind of retroactive since I'm hoping I'll actually be able to post more these last two weeks of term (but I was hoping to be on top of things all term and here we are), but I have just not been in a mental state to be posting much lately with real life stuff taking up most of my brain power including it being the end of the school year my first year as a full time teacher so apologies!

A bit precautionary, but thesis is due in the coming weeks and I suspect I will be rather slow and likely crash hard when its finally submitted. Will prioritise requirements and discussed threads, and welcome prodding if I miss any replies :wub:
