Welcome to the Absences Topic!

As we?ve all discussed, this is where you can alert everyone of your absence from the forums. So, if you're going on holiday, going away for a week or more, or if you're going away for an indefinite amount of time and you want to let your friends here know, this is the topic for you!

You can also use this topic to announce that you're back when you return, if you wish.

The other purpose of this topic is to help keep the forum tidy and de-cluttered from all these "I'm Back!" topics, so we?ll see how this all works out. :)

Just a few guidelines, so that we're all clear about how to use this topic:

1) Please don't use this topic excessively. For example, there's no need to announce your absence if you're only going to be away for a few hours, or for just a couple of days, or if you?re just going to get a sandwich or something. Any posts like this will be deleted by the moderators.

Furthermore, if you think there's a likelihood that you may still be active during the time then please don't post in here; help keep this topic clear for real absences.

2) It will be easier to keep track of who is away, and who has returned, if this topic isn't littered with general chit-chat. Please feel free to create a new topic though, if you've come back and you want to tell us what you got up to!

3) Posts saying that you're leaving the CC can be left here too. However, please be sure that you really do want to leave before you post here. Give it some thought, and you may find that you'll start to feel differently. In the past, many people have announced that they're leaving the community, going out in a blaze of glory of epic proportions! ... Only to return again with a change of heart a week or so later. Frankly, this will only make you look foolish. :P Instead, just take a break and leave us a post, if you think you may return one day.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be moving to Bangkok, Thailand for a year and I'll be leaving in three weeks. (I guess I need to add the Thai flag to the countries list :))

If anyone has been there before and has any suggestions/tips, please let me know! Also, I should still be able to get online a decent amount, so it won't technically be an "absence". Just thought this would be an appropriate place to let everyone know. :)

Just to say that, at the moment I am on study leave, and due to the fact that I am going into 5th year and doing very important studies I won't have much time for creatures or the community. This isn't really an absence. Just to say I won't be online that much any more. All my projects (except fragile norns) are cancelled. My doctor site is also cancelled... Sorry :(

Don't be worried about who is right, Just follow you heart...

I have finals this week and the next, then a two week family vacation with little to no internet, so I'm going to be absent for a little while. But I'll miss you all and come back asap!

Uh, after another long period of absence I am back... Sorry. I go on and off randomly, because I have ASAP to work on at times and I get engrossed in it again sorry... I may disappear again soon, I'm kinda flaky like that.

I'd crosspost from Ctopia but given the much more narrow format of Ccaves I think I'd be taking up far too much to simply let people know that I'm back.

Long story short, I'm really sorry for vanishing without warning, I had to buy myself a new computer and the past couple of months of uni have been unbelievably intense.

For more details, see this thread over on Ctopia.

Good God, everytime I think things have settled down they flare up again. I'm hoping to be back on a regular basis, if a little less frequent than I used to be. Real life can be such a pain. I'm envying those little nornies who get to sit around and eat cheese all the live-long day. :D

I've been gone for a few weeks, thanks to work and a nice little flare-up of a failed piece of hardware on the laptop I have all my Creatures stuff on. It only happened once, though, and I know how this thing works... Hopefully all will be well!

I'll also be out of town this weekend and for part of next week, but I wanted to let everyone know that I'm still around and planning on updating Discover Albia when I get some free time. Talk to you all soon!

I have returned to help the CC in any way I can.

You might know me as Hierophant, the one who tried making the Warlord breed.

I try to help the CC through other methods now.

I'm back! This thread was made after I left, so for the record I've been gone for a bit over six months. I lost my Creatures Exodus disk four months ago, so that didn't help at all. I hope to have a new disk in by the 19th so fingers crossed it works out.
I'm happy to be back in the CC and I really hope somebody remembers me(doubt it).


I'm tired. ;___;

Welcome back Arnout. :) Please do feel free to create a new topic in Strangeo about your holiday, we'd all love to hear about it! However, please keep any chat out of this topic, as keeping it clear of any discussions makes it easier to keep track of who is away and who is back.

I just wanted to say that I probably will stay out of the CC till the Gryph/Sparkleblue problem is fixed. It is making me sick and before I do something stupid in my anger I decided to go away and return once Creatures @ Seeyou7.net is free again.

EDIT: I think I was a lil unclear. I didn't say I am gone forever. Once you get the mess under control I am back.

Why is everyone so bent on smearing this all over the CC? Stop it. Now.
This is between Gryph and Sparkleblue, all this rubbish about people leaving or uniting for a common cause and whatever is causing more damage to the CC than the original issue. Seriously peeps.

If you're somehow blinded with rage and fury over this, it's probably for the best to take a short break from the CC. But don't dramatize it, it just makes things worse for everyone.

Hope to see you again soon though, Papriko. We'll miss you!

What? This isn't all about Sparkleblue. Vampess's work is up there. Moe's work is up there. My work is up there. I agree that going "on strike" and taking web sites down is not the correct response in this situation, but this is hardly a private altercation between two people that's getting thrown around here. It's probably all over the CC because it involves several different people in the CC. Not just Sparkleblue.

Well, then it is between Gryph and the breed owners. The ones that mind having their breeds hosted elsewhere, of course.
The only correct response is ignoring it. Writing Gryph a nice letter, banning her from forums or closing down your own site is just giving her what she wants: Attention. In fact, any breed owner who takes down their own site is just giving Gryph's site more traffic from people who still want those breeds. Smart move.

This is all I want to see about it in this topic, though. This topic is for absences only, and I hereby announce the absence of the subject of Gryph vs. the World.

Any further discussion may happen in a thread in the General forum, if you feel like giving Gryph more of her precious attention.

I'm back from a Internet-free zone some days ago. Sorry for being absent, I've lots to do in the holiday.

I'm wondering what's going on in the community - quarrels? :(

Wow, my previous absent post is above me! :P

I just want to let everyone know that I'm suffering of a problem that I can't join IRC rooms with Pidgin - so I'll be not on CC Chat/Sine until I have finally found a way to authenticate myself automatically with NickServ on the WyldRyde.org network in Trillian.

Thought I ought to let you all know why I've been rather absent in the last few weeks. I just transfered to a new university and am still figuring out how to balance my computer time with homework. Unfortunately, homework is winning so far. I'll definitely pop in every now and then, but I just wanted you to know I'm not abandoning the community and I'll be back regularly as soon as I can. :D
