    red apple The Official Away/Back Thread

    Now that I'm part of TPM staff, and after a brief discussion with Lady Vulpix, I'll take action and post a general Official Away/Back Thread. I reckon there have been specific ones for ASB and RPG in past. Given the current unsure world state, there's even a greater demand. If you go away for a few days, weeks or months or go semi-active this is the place to post.

    Oh, and because of the format of this thread, I think double-posting would be acceptable.

    So, I'm going semi-active for a couple of weeks to fix my sleeping rhythm. I will still post, and check the forums, but not so often everyday. Mielikkitalo, our club house, is going to be opened on the 1st of June, and I'm looking forward to it.

    It's hard to have the patience to remain semi-active...

    Lady Vulpix, could you make this sticky, please?

    The thread has been stuck. And double-posting is OK if, for example, you make one post to say you're going away, and then days later another post to say you're back. But don't make multiple consecutive posts if you just remembered something you wanted to add to your previous post. That's what the Edit button is for.

    (Also, AC/CC used to have this too, but I think a general thread for the whole board will do the job better now.)

    I'm around, biding my time to further my goals of world domination or at least help to get the ASB back on its feet.

    I’m back for the first time in years. Honestly the weirdest thing kept happening and I couldn’t even load the site until today. Not sure why.

    Well, this place has seen better days.....
    Mostly poking my head in on a whim. Place seems kinda barren, and I see that the main website hasn't had an update in well over five years. Seems surreal to think that 22 years ago, this was once one of the bigger fansites :-/
    In any case, see a few familiar names floating around still. I've also noted that you guys got a Discord server. Kinda getting the sense that a fair amount of discussion probably happens over there. Already joined it under my Enigma moniker as I've greatly transitioned away from using my real name online if I can avoid it. Blame the world we live in now with all the insanity, hostile discourse, and shit such as swatting that happens now. God forbid I piss off the wrong idiot online, the last thing I need to do is freak out, panic, then try to shoot at the cops before my mind can fully process what's going on.
    Despite that, I'll at least get my display name changed on the Discord server so you guys know it's me, although I'll most likely just be lurking for a day or two as I kinda expect it to be a long weekend for myself.

    TLDR: I'm back bitches! Sup?

    I was thinking about you recently. Still trying to be active, but some things never change... all my posts start off with the letter I.

    Welcome back!! So nice to see a familiar face!! Yeah I know, not much activity these days around here... I hope for a miracle that a bunch of TPMers are gonna come back and bring it back to life, but I guess if it didn't happen during the covid shutdowns of 2 years ago, that was probably our best chance. It did bring back some visitors for a post or two though... Once in awhile a veteran will be poking around, saw Misty on here a few days ago. Glad to see you back though, even though it is quiet here these days, hope to see you drop by once in awhile.

    I'm going to be a bit less active for a couple of weeks, because I'm following the Olympic Games. The Nordic countries aren't doing well in women's ice hockey, but I'm happy for other teams' success. I must also pay a visit to my mom.
