Holidays are important in Lochland Grove. It is no wonder the community is buzzing over Little Halloween; a celebration of the town's bravery in the face of serial killer Robert Lewis.

Now that Lewis's copy cat is behind bars, does Little Halloween hold new meaning? What of the approaching Hurricane Caroline?

Absence Rules
As much as we love roleplaying, there is always a time where we need to step away from the keyboard. We understand that. Here at Lochland we want to offer you a place for all of your absence needs: Formal and Informal. When posting an absence, please use your OOC account.
Informal Absence
Are you going away for the weekend? Just want to let everyone know you won’t be around tomorrow? It’s good to give an update to what is going on in your life. That is what our Informal Absence is all about.

-Make a new thread on the absence board stating what ever you want. No template needed!
-Informal Absences do not count for the activity check.
-Please be nice enough to say when it is over or leave a date to when it can be removed. We like to keep the board clean.
-If there is an Activity Check, you must post on it.

Formal Absence
A formal absence is recognized for activity checks. We have three different types: Full, Partial, and Emergency. Post on this thread for a formal absence.

Full Absence:
-Full Absences are for when you won’t be near the Internet for a while.
-They can last up to 2 weeks.
-You do not have to post on the activity check if your absence covers the entire check. If it does not then you are still responsible to post on it.
-This absence does not count if created during an activity check.
-No new characters can be made while on Absence.

Partial Absence
-Partial absences are for when you have less time than normal to be posting.
-They can last up to 2 months
-you do have to post for the activity check, but no thread is required.
-This absence does not count if posted during an activity check.
-No new characters can be made while on Absence.

Emergency Absence:
-Emergency Absences are for emergencies only.
-They must be approved by an Admin.
-They can last up to 6 months.
-You do not have to post on the activity check.
-No new characters can be made.

Absence Template (remove stars):
[dohtml]<center><div class="jazrecblack"><div class="jazrecblacktitle">Full / Partial / Emergency Absence</div> <div class="jazrecwwtitle">Start Date:  00/00/18   |    End Date: 00/00/18</div> <center>LIST CHARACTERS HERE</center><p> <b>Reason</b>: (optional) [/doHTML]

Emergency Absence
Start Date: 01/09/18 | End Date: 07/09/18
Ianthe Stuart, Teagan Landry, Uriah Sutton, Frankie Nazarro, Sabrina Harrison, Seraphim Drake, and Blake Gutierrez

Reason: All the reasons! Life, time, family, job. If I have the time and energy to be online, I shall try to do that, if I do not, I will try not to stress myself out about everything. If anyone needs anything from me, PM me.

Partial Absence
Start Date: 03/28/18 | End Date: 05/28/18
Jorge Cervantes, Cora Birchwood, Charles Red Fish

Reason: This is kind of two-fold. I have already started to slow down because of work. Essentially, I work at a library, and a smaller library within our library, has been slacking it for several years now, to the point that their collection is a complete and utter mess. I have been assigned to start cleaning up this mess, by myself. Therefore, that is why I have been so slow and just not around these days. It is a big project that, to be quite honest, will take my more than what the partial absence allows but as it's not really a full or emergency absence, that is what it is. I'm HOPING it will cool down by the end of this absence notice as that will be summer time for us, but I just don't know.

The second part of this is that I am currently sick. I came down with something last week but because of A.) shitty timing, and B.) a terrible boss, I haven't been able to take any days off to actually be home and just recuperate. Friday I should have off and I'm hoping that that, added with the weekend, will be enough of a break to get me back to full health. But we'll see.

Anyways, enough of my going on. If anyone has questions or concerns or funny pictures of animals to boost my spirits, kindly PM me. Thanks!

Reason: I have a lot on my plate this summer and I’ve been struggling to write. I’ll be focusing on the work I’m doing instead, but I might pop in for a post or two!
