I'm cutting this because it wouldn't be interesting to most on my flist, only those that visit FAP - Would have just posted this in the S.S.Sssssss thread, but it is long and while you could twist it to being on-topic, I figured the Mods would probably disagree. (I will be linking to it from the thread, though, in case anyone over there is interested.)

For those who've OWLed (or PMed) me yesterday and haven't gotten a reply. Here's why, if you're interested, and I assume if you've clicked to read this you are interested. ;)
I am reading through them, so if you're waiting for a response, it should happen shortly. Although the few I've checked already don't seem to need a response.

Some are aware that I spent WAY too much time on FAP Wednesday night and Thursday because of the issues that had come up (we all know what those are, right?) and I didn't want to be absent from things any more than I had to be. Needless to say, I ended up not getting enough sleep Wednesday night. So, what happened is that Thursday (yesterday) afternoon I was sitting at the computer and realized I was actually having trouble keeping my eyes open. So, I turned the PC off and decided to take a nap, though I loathe later afternoon napping because I tend not to sleep at night, but what else was I gonna do, I was about to crash.

So, I got comfy, and was out light a light. The next thing I was aware of was my dog waking me up around ten cause it was time for bed. Yes, my dog sleeps with me - bad habit that I let her get into, because some nights she keeps me awake, usually when there's thunder involved. Now I don't like storms much either, but over half the time she wakes me up, the thunder is off in the distance and something I could happily sleep through... But that is neither here nor there. (Sorry, I tend to ramble off topic alot.)

I really did think about checking in over at FAP before trying to go to bed, but since I was still feeling very sleepy I decided to see if I could go to sleep again rather than doing anything else that might futher wake me up. (Sorry, but I hate messing up my sleeping patterns and if I'd come online I would have ended up fully awake and then been up until about the time I actually ended up waking.) Thankfully (or not, depending on your point of view, I suppose) I went straight back to sleep, but if I hadn't I would have logged on. But I went to sleep and wasn't aware of anything else until about just before five this morning.

Why then did I not log on any earlier today? I spent so much time online Wednesday and Thursday that I had neglicted some things and decided to finish those things up before coming online. Because, keep in mind, that I had no idea what, if anything, had transpired during the hours that I was offline, and was afraid if I didn't finish those pesky other things first then (depending on what had or had not happened) I might end up online quite a bit again today.

So, that is why I haven't been around - I haven't been trying to avoid anything, or nothing like that - just been trying to catch up on sleep and other things - like housework. Online things just have to allow for that sort of thing whether they want to or not.

Finally, five o'clock is WAY too early in the morning for me to get up, even after having slept for more hours than usual - so I'm already starting to feel sleepy and tired again. LOL I can't win. Though I shouldn't end up so tired that I have to sleep until normal bedtime. Hopefully. And maybe by tomorrow I will feel completely normal again.
Hey. Yes, I was doing similarly, trying to stay aware of what was going on. I think things have finally been sorted out.

Where on earth did all of this come from? This was the first I'd heard of any real suggestion of splitting the thread. I'd thought that it was just a few people once in a while entertaining the idea. I never thought it was serious until the mod said that it was going to happen. I must have missed something.
I'm not sure what started it. Though I suspect it has something to do with some drama that went down within the ship a couple threads ago. But even then I cannot be entirely sure of that.
And at the time I thought those issues which had cropped up had also been resolved. I wasn't a part of it, so I figured they'd been resolved offboard by the people who were involved. Yes, I had realized before this that all the issues had in fact not been resolved, but I didn't really know what to do about them, since as I mentioned I wasn't actually a part of it.

So, apparently, those who said that HP/LV and TR/HP should have separate threads were actually very serious about it. And, in theory, I don't honestly mind the idea of two separate threads. My main concern in all this was that a split would hinder one (or both) threads. Of course, even one thread is hindered if the people who felt strongly about the divide stop or continue not to post on the thread. So, considering all that, last night before I went offline, I had accepted it would happen and hoped for the best (for both threads) - I didn't know other things were afoot.

To put it bluntly, I think I missed a few things too, and not all of it was just because I was offline longer than usual in the last twenty four hour period. And even though the issue of separate threads has been put to bed (again), I don't believe the issues behind the separation requests to be dead at all.

I know in the first drama we lost two active posters (maybe more, but I only know of two, and originally I thought one of those had left for other reasons). And today (first time since ever) I checked the crew thread and noticed that two people have asked to be removed from the crew since the Mod decision that there would not be a split was handed down.

Does that mean they too were unhappy (Or did they ask to be removed for other reasons and the timing is just freaky? I truly wish those that were unhappy would comment to express themselves - on the thread itself, or even here.

I don't know if communicating would fix every problem, but maybe if we all got together we could work some things out. At least we'd have a better chance at doing so than we do now. I mean even after all this, I can still only say that I know for certain two people who were (and presumably still are) unhappy.

However, I know (or strongly suspect) there has to be more than two, because I don't think two requests for a new thread would have been seriously considered by the Mods. I guess I could be wrong on that, but from those I have spoken to, I get the impression more than two people were unhappy.
It's a very long story which I will not go into in a public forum.
Needless to say everything is more or less back to normal..for now
philstar22 I love your icon!
Thanks! I can't remember where I found it, but the credit is in on my icon page.
I added you to my f-list. (I'm Amys from the ship) I must say I still wonder who those 'separatists' are
