If you are going to be absent from the site for a period of time, such as needing time away for vacation, holidays, and other real life reasons, please post here. If you need to utilize your 30 day immunity from steals or challenges for the year (or even part of it), please ensure you post in the tracker thread that is found in this board.
Hiatus' are intended for when members require an extended absence from the site, but do not intend on quitting. When posting a hiatus, it is of the understanding that the member's characters are in a state of limbo/frozen for the time being, and cannot be stolen or challenged for. This reverses the moment you return and begin posting again. If you are going on hiatus, we ask that you drop your canon position and herds (or pass off your herd to a beta/co-lead to look after). If you don't feel ready to give these up, you can always post in our "Gone" Board and ask for 30 days of immunity from steals or challenges to see if this is a more suitable option for you.
For other members, please ensure that the characters of members on hiatus are removed from your herd directories, so there is no confusion for stealing.
