Hi Episode fam! It’s a new week on the forums which means a whole new batch of topics that need to be addressed The team has noticed an influx of threads/topics being created announcing the Op’s forum departure (even though they are creating the thread while still being active on the forums). We have been trying our best to avoid these topics and allowing for closure between community members. However; many of the topics now include comments from Op’s specifying that they will no longer be leaving the forums (with some of them even including this in the Op post directly after saying they are leaving). This is a problem and eliminates the original purpose of the thread causing it to be considered spam and violates the forum rules.
"But what can we do to fix this?!" you might ask!
Private Message your close friends on the forums and try to maturely work things out. Sometimes all it takes is friendly advise from a friend to help set one’s mind at ease.
Private Message our forum Moderator @Sydney_H or myself with any forum related issues you might have that we can help with. We always want the most pleasant, fun, organized and safe experience for the community and will always try to work with you.
Take a short break from the forums. Sometimes everyone needs a break from the every day struggles of life. Luckily the forums are not a life requirement and can easily be ignored. Note: there is no need to announce your temporary vacation from the forums by creating a thread for it. The community will live on
Spend more time working on your stories, scripts and art. The more time you spend being productive with your story will increase the chance of it becoming popular and more people will reach out to you with positive kudos via the forums.

So in other words. The “I’m leaving the forums” topics are getting excessive and mostly turn into spam topics.
If you are going to permanently leave the forums, feel free to create a topic about it. But make sure you are 100% confident with your decision.
