Why was it? I'm asking because some people were PMing me asking why it was closed. But I don't know...Can someone answer this?

It was closed because people were pretending to leave as a joke and sometimes it really hurt other member's feelings or caused them to really leave

So what happens if someone is leaving, what do they do? Make a thread?

No, it is up to them if they wanna leave, it is just that some were leaving just to prove how dumb leaving was so they were leaving for the wrong reasons

So what happens if someone is leaving, what do they do? Make a thread?
Im sure that members that wanna leave will pm their friends, as for staff they never closed the thread in the staff room so it will be announced by andy or abby

Err, okay. As I said in the announcement it was creating a bad air around OC, with everyone seeming to leave at once. So we’re going to try to focus on the positive side of chatting there and see if that lifts spirits. Or something.

Yes he wasn't. I know him, but I can't get to greet him a WB. Sad.

ughhh... gets mod By KairiAs the title implies. If you want to leave, you must do it silently. Sorry, but its been a source of too much trouble and depression. Tell your real friends by PM that youre going.

Err, we’re discussing WHY I made that decision, this isn’t a new leaving thread. I think that’s what you’re implying?

Leave of absence was a good idea to prevent new threads of goodbyes popping up randomly. But as always, a new dramatic twist comes in to play unexpectedly, people start this stylish 'trend' of leaving, they left of rather blunt or stupid reasons, and what do you know? It suddenly became the most depressing thread in PC. So in conclusion to prevent anymore of that, off it goes.

^_^ Simple enough.

hey "trend" waz my word XD On~topic yea it waz depressing I though Jkaizer waz leavin too *r u?* and i though a lot of ppl were leaving then they change their minds again and again.

Not really *shrugs* I think you misread my posts. I'm not taking this thread to WB Junichi, he probably won't see it for the purpose anyway.

Hmm, I do think it was a good idea to close it, as it was getting pretty Spammmed up, but I think we should atleast start a new one, or some other new way of explaining why your leaving, I think you should only have leave of abcence for if your leaving for good though, because if your only leaving for a few days then you can just put it in your signiture, and/or PM friends or anyone who actually needs to know!

Gardy

i waz thinkin of an idea actually *sp* but it suckz but anyways it goes lik this *pretend there is a new thread for it* they post they r leavin and they have 5 days to confirm they r and if they r de-activated *or somethin lik that* their account. I know it'z silly but it'z a suggestion also so the can re-think. yes it waz gettin spammed up >> so there needs to b a way to protect *if a new thread for it comes* it from that.

I don’t think we need it. If they’re only leaving for a few days, put it in your sig or whatever. If you’re leaving “forever”, PM who really cares, like your friends. Mods need to let us know in the mod forums that they’ll be absent, but otherwise there’s no huge need for such a thread.
