    Hello everybody!

    There has been a recent influx of people going on vacation or taking leave temporarily from the boards coming on and posting their own threads saying how they are gone and will be back, then posting another thread to say they have returned. These are always greeted with their share of quick little "See you soon" style messages and together, these new threads suck up a good deal of our bandwidth and generally create clutter on the board.

    As we always do, we've found a way to combat this. Instead of posting a thread saying you are leaving, please post here.

    For those well-wishers, you can feel free to add karma to a random post of the departing buddy, but this is a way to keep everyone informed and hopefully, to keep everyone equally happy about the boards.

    Hey.


    I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm checking out. Since I've joined, I've been reading less and I want to get back to reading more. And I've been lurking on here anyway. I haven't been posting as much.

    I think most of you have my facebook,twitter,tumblr and instagram username handles. If not, you guys can PM me and I'll let you know my facebook and other stuff if you want.
     
    Washburne: Take care. Who knows, maybe you'll come back someday.
    brinkster130: You'll be missed Abs!
    PassionBecoming: Farewell!

    I think I'm going to take a break from the boards for a couple of weeks.

    See you all soon. :)

    Shipping Out For Awhile

    Folks, as much as I have always loved coming to the Boards, as much as it has always been, for me, a haven of rest from the everyday world, I think that it would be best for me to withdraw for awhile. My wife is preparing to undergo serious gastric surgery, and my worries for her are affecting everything that I am involved in at the moment. Before I say or do something that will make me appear to be an even bigger ass than I have been lately, I think that it is better for all concerned if I simply leave for awhile.

    Hopefully, my absence won't be an extended thing, and I will be lurking around on occasion, but, for the moment at least, I think that I'm needed more elsewhere.

    Happy trails, fair weather, and good fortuns to all. And, as the former Governor of California always says, "I'll be back."

    Hasta La vista, Baby,
    WA
     
    chasesummers: Take care
    bespangeled: I'm gonna miss you - good luck for the wife!
    Sweet J: Mind the dark road ahead with the thought that you are together, take care you two!

    Hi, people...

    I haven't posted much lately, and once my winter break begins I will be spending much of my time travelling, babysitting, and possibly job searching.

    As a result, I'll be taking a break from posting here. You're welcome to message me, though, as I check my inbox here pretty regularly. Additionally, I plan to begin watching Angel at some point, so I'll obviously return to discuss it.

    Merry Christmas/Feliz Navidad/Joyeux Noel!
     
    Blaze: Hope you have a nice holiday, looking forward to seeing you back on the board
    PassionBecoming: Have fun!!
    eponinethen: I just kind of returned to the boards after years of not being here. You seem like a new and smart person, hope you'll be back! :)

    See you around, BB.

    Well, my laptop just nearly set itself on fire so I won't be around for a few days (until my new AC adapter arrives). Try not to be too awesome while I'm gone; I don't want to miss anything.
     
    Blaze: We'll try to contain the awesomeness until you come back ;)
    thetopher: I can't promise anything, but I'll try!
    Taake: oh wow, fire bad! :P See you soon :)

    I haven't had the time to come here, usually I pass by to continue the Elimination Rounds I started but quickly log off. However, I decided to take a step back from the Buffy-Boards, and it will probably be for a very long time.

    Buffyverse is one of the most brilliant universe I have experienced and will undoubtedly carry it throughout, especially Cordelia and Buffy :)
    This forum was a brilliant idea and also a sweet experience with very nice people; all about the Buffyverse, it's wicked just to think how dedicated Buffy fans are, so I'm very happy to have been part of it!

    Regarding the Elimination Rounds, anyone interested can carry the same formula and add their own touch to them, but if there is no interest you may completely cancel it. I don't own anything, it was just a contribution to keep the forum up and kicking.

    With all that said and done, I once again leave Sunnydale :) Feel free to follow me on twitter if you'd like: ''ChaseSummers14'' I'll be around there some time. Take care everyone, and be happy ;) Slayers throughout!

    Will be on a semi-hiatus from BB until the 25th (it will end in 9 days from now).

    I will visit BB 2-3 times during said semi-hiatus, but will be off BB for the most part (I promise that it will be over before you know it :) ).
     
    Taake: NO! *clings to your leg to make you stay* Although seriously though, hope you have a good time with your hiatus :)
