Because real life does happen, and the mods do recognize this fact, please respond here should it be necessary for you to be away from the game for more than a week. List the name of your character and the dates in which you will be away.
It is important to note that your hiatus dates are set. Once you are written out of a thread, even if your hiatus is delayed (say, you decide not to leave early for Grandma's and wait until the weekend) you will not be able to hop back into the game.
However, if you come back early, you will be able to join in the game as soon as you are able.
Remember, if we're not kept informed, we have no way of knowing. If you don't alert us to an impending hiatus, we will strike you for inactivity. And we really don't want to do that if we don't have to.
