    What's the longest time you have been away from your forum(s)? What was the reason -- vacation, lack of interest, inactivity, ...?

    I don't think I've ever gone more than a week without visiting any of my forums.

    The longest would be 3 days and the results were rather pleasing considering the forum was 2 months old, we seen almost 4k posts within those three days we were unable to get online, I think we should stay away a little more again some time :D

    The longest time I've spent away from my forum was a month because of a serious health condition.

    Probably close to a week due to being away from home and having spotty internet access. Still checked my email via phone for DB errors and reported posts though.

    About two weeks maximum. I can't remember the exact times I've been completely away from technology, but two weeks is the most I can think of.

    Almost 3 days. As the only member of staff (my clan forum has no mods, smods, or other admins), it was risky. But since it is so small and only visited by the gaming clan, i wasnt worried. Got hit with a bunch of spam. Was ultra busy and didnt check in.
