The Official "I'm going away/coming back!" Thread

Enterprise

Going to be semi active for a while.
I'm back, but don't expect me to post often. You leaving @Silver Knight? Safe travels. Maybe we can connect over on ZU and maybe discord.

Hey everyone. Today’s the last day I’m going to be on here until the night of August 9th. I’m going to my grandparents camp with my mom and dad. The only way I could access the internet there is if my parents get a data plan, however, they have no interest in getting one. Plus, my grandparents get their internet access via dial-up, and I don’t know if that thing only allows a certain amount of devices or not. Regardless, for 5 days, I’m not going to have any access to my IPad or a computer at all. I’ll miss you all!

he's kinda sus
now I forgot to say that I was on vacation for like 4 days and a half (I even said it in my profile) but I may be absent another 4 days beginning this thursday. Now I'm not totally sure if I'm gonna stay online or not coz' I got a extra wifi router that may not work so if it does, I'll stay tuned but if its not, then bye for now.

Hey.

Before you wonder, no, I will not be temporarily leaving the community, but what will happen is that my activity will drop considerably both on here and on discord. Things came up irl and I really need to take care of that, and stuff. Will probably be the case till somewhere nearing the end of august, but as things are now I cannot say for sure.

I'll mostly just be lurking around. May post occasionally but do not really expect anything out of me for the next two weeks and a half. Will probably be less inactive on discord than on here but really this applies everywhere.

Not goodbye.

Leaving on a trip to the mountains today, don't know if my hotel will have internet but either way my activity here will probably drop. I should be back in about 4-5 days.

hey folks, with awards and killing game finally beginning to wind down a bit, i've decided that it's time for me to start thinking about going into my annual state of hibernation. as always is the case for me, i seem to have trouble balancing my irl responsibilities and my time spent online, and while stuff like KG and Awards have been amazing, it's also inadventantly led me to become a bit muddled in terms of my irl schedule (although the other contributing factor is the complete mess that has been covid-19) so i need to take some time away from the boards and internetland in general so i can get all my affairs in order, reprioritise everything and, honestly, just have a bit of a rest. in past years, i probably would have just slinked back into the shadows without a word to anyone, but i feel like ive reconnected myself much more thoroughly this year than i have in the past, so i want to let you all know whats up so nobody gets worried about me or anything

i'll still be checking in now and again while we wait for AKG4 to officially conclude, and for all the post-game stuff that entails as well, but otherwise i'm hoping to reduce my time spent around here for a while. as part of this, i'll be doing a general purge of discord servers, particularly the ones i have that i look at but dont really interact with, although i'll probably give that a few days while i wait to figure that out fully, so i should still be able to be reached there for at least a bit longer. i'm not sure how long this particular season of being away will last, but knowing me, i'll be back sooner rather than later. ive had a blast reintegrating myself into the community this year, so i just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the good times we've had, and i'll likely see you all soon(ish), once im sleeping at normal hours again. stay safe and stay cool peeps

Hello, hello!

...It's occurring to me that I forgot to post in this thread to more widely communicate my absence. Nevertheless, if you've noticed I've been less active around here in the past week or so, there's a reason for that. I've been out since Sunday until just about thirty minutes ago for a socially-distanced vacation by a lakeside, and am only now just returning. My thanks to Rose for letting me thrust upon him the task of ensuring The 'Shroom didn't burn down in that time, and to everyone else who has continued to work on projects in my absence.

Now that I'm back, though, you can expect a number of projects I have a stake in to really kick into gear this week! After all, I'm now refreshed and had a break after Awards, so you can trust me when I say I'm ready to return to projects around here.

a few weeks later, and things have calmed down irl and i feel ive had enough time to rest and decompress after a busy awards season, so i'll tentatively say that i'm back again (as much as im ever active on the forums outside kg, anyway), sooner rather than later, as expected
(i've been on discord again the past few days anyway so i figured i might as well make my return official lol)

Guess what: I'm going on another break. I have been lurking here more than posting, but it's gonna be for a good 5 days before I'm online a lot again. (BTW: The inactivity starts tomorrow)

It feels GREAT to be back. Yep, I'm back home with my laptop.

So...I've been considering this for a while, probably about two months, but I never could bring myself to do it. Now I'm doing it, full disclosure.

I'm leaving the boards. I don't know for how long, but it'll probably be a pretty long time. When I first joined, I was overjoyed to finally be able to have people to discuss my Mario nerdiness with. It's been a good three years since then. But as time went on I've felt increasingly alienated from y'all and lost a lot of motivation to keep posting. I don't hold anything against y'all--it's just that I don't feel like one of you, and I've increasingly felt that there's just no real place for me here. Not to mention school's been busier than ever this year, and I really need to cut stuff out and redirect my focus towards that. I've also realized that I have people in my own life that I need to spend more time with as opposed to...people I've never really met on an online Mario forum.

So...consider this goodbye. I don't know what the future might hold, but there are simply more important things to me right now than continuing to stick around here. I figured I might as well drop this post before logging out so y'all would at least know what's up. So...here you go.

I'm not sure what I can say here other than I know exactly what is alienating you from the rest of the community and why you're desiring to leave it.

All I can say is that, you're still young, naive, and easily impressionable, and I'm going to guess that a lot of your beliefs are uninformed and you don't exactly understand why we strongly feel this way towards the things you support. There's still time and places to change it around for the better, and it would be a shame to see you continue along that path.

Going to be semi active for a while.
I am back, but it is on and off. I have a very busy life and it is hard to keep up. So I'll be gone for a week or two before resuming activity. I hope that I'll return to my previous activity when I am less busy.
