    I don't have a very clear answer but from what I've seen the Admins are currently away on vacation, when they'll be back I have no idea though.

    It's Serious' final test. Can he handle the lot of us in their absence. All moderators need to show the strength of several thousand non mods.

    Or what Grin said. Just crazy timing all around

    Edit: it was just a holiday weekend in 'Murica

    I talked to Baal and he told me he quit. 

    As for Fex and E, I hope befowler makes sure they have ample alcohol for their vacation.

    Been asking this for more than a week lol
    No one has an answer other than someone posting that people are on holidays.
    Baal is no longer an admin. Can't discuss but he left saying he needed a break.
    Your post just before mine on the gender issues thread, could be a reason but no one has an answer on that. Even if that was the case, they should make an appearance at least once a week. IMO anyways.

    I keep hearing that things have slowed down here, but lately we have had quite a few new comers. It's starting to pick back up. What I think the mods should do is create a thread in the forum news section where ONLY the mods post telling us when they are on holidays and when they are expected back. This way, no one has to keep questioning where everyone is.

    Guy I just wanna say even admins deserve a holiday you know silly

    Don't worry, this place is going strong and will keep going. We generally can cover the ground even with a couple absences to keep the place in check, though we always would like the members to help us out in regulating through post reporting, pms and the like

    Seeing as DkS II isn't too far off I doubt this forum will vanish into the void of the internet, it will probably just start to go at a slower pace than before.

    As far as reasons for the disappearance of the mods goes, I'd like to think they have good reason for not being here. Whether it be personal issues or not, currently we still have three mods that do a fine job with handling threads.

    I think this forum will be fine.

    @Twig That might not be the worst idea. However I'd think it's best if their reasons for an absence should be confidential, so they aren't giving out information that they aren't comfortable giving out.

    I don't think our admins would suddenly abandon us.


    Pretty sure they are on vacation.


    We're in good hands you guys, Serious_Much and Reim are possibly some of our best moderators.

    I've also seen befowler lurking in my covenant thread from time to time.

    On Vacation as in, offline, or as in just away from the forum?

    I heard a few rumours that people think they don't care. But I know that's not the case with some of them. At least the ones I talk to all the time.

    Yeah I wouldn't be opposed to them just saying "we're going on holidays" or something similar. However I was thinking more along the lines of if there would be a personal issue in their lives that they do not want to divulge to the rest of us.

    In other words, just say "gone for personal reasons".

    PM's go from your Outbox to your Sentbox once their reciever has opened them right?

    If this is the case then FexDS is still quick to pick-up any PMs sent her way; I flicked her a message about something minor and it had moved to my Sentbox within the day.

    Not suggesting you spam them with PMs asking where they are, but it would seem they're still within contact and keeping abreast of any issues serious enough to warrant a PM their way, even if they don't have a big public presence here ATM.

    @Grin - You could do it that way also big grin

    @Hart - Since Fex is an admin, if her admin status is the same as I'm thinking, any pm's to her can automatically go to her email address making them vanish from your outbox. You can only get so many pm's before you have to delete and people, ( like you silly ) send lots of pm's. So, they probably go to her email inbox.

    This dude.

    He is doing...


    ...a good job moderating these forums.

    Fex would be so proud.
    *sniffs*

    Seriously though. Keep up the good work.

    Well, if the admins have things set up well, they can leave the moderating to the moderators, and they oversee the site (the administration duties). Creating a bonfire that everyone wants to kindle is a nonstop process, and taking a break/vacation is a great way to avoid getting burnt out. Another great thing is, for the most part, you guys are really good at moderating yourselves.

    I don't know exactly where they've gone. But, I'm sure they'll be back. Hopefully, well rested.

    Dibs is dealing with personal problems. Atleast that's what I've gathered from him.
    So give him some time.
