Inactive due to a break from the game, will return when competitive matchmaking releases. Probably about 1-3 months* of inactivity.

*Valve has been hinting at this competitive matchmaking, like the one found in CS:GO for about two years, it's been predicted to being released soon, and if it isn't, then you can still expect me to return in about 1-3 months, that's a large span, I realize.


Also, I may be on for a prolonged period of time, then suddenly get off for a bit. That's what I mean.

I will be away from tomorrow until the following Wednesday so about a week. It is likely I will be not have internet so I will not be able to respond to forum posts as well as reports. When I come back, I will hopefully have enough stamina to respond to all that I missed.

WILL be inactive Due to some people in my city, they decided to cut 3 strands of internet cable (wave broadband) and they wiped out the internet for people who use wavebroadband like me in the city. So due to that, I do not have access to internet, and was told that it may take a while to fix it. I hope you guys can understand. They don't have a time for when it will be back up, so I'm posting this for safety measures.

I've been inactive for quite a while due to issues with my computer. I got a virus and had to take my laptop in to a repair shop to get it fixed all to no avail. So, I had to save funds for a new computer. The only reason my steam account may have been online was because I have the steam app on my ipod. However, I have a new laptop and I actually went back on the servers yesterday (7/13/2015) and I absolutely plan on being active as I was before. Sorry for anyone I may have inconvenienced with my absence.

I am currently a senior in highschool and the teachers decided they were gonna protest the school and not give student recommendations for colleges so there is a lot of shit going down right now. As a result, I might be busy over the next week or two trying to help get this resolved with the student body. I apologize for the inconvenience.

It's that time of the year again.

School is back in, and no matter how much I want to hang myself because of it, I have to do it, and for that, expect very little from me until summer. I'm not gone COMPLETELY till then, but don't count on me as much for a little while.

If you need to contact me, contact me through Steam. I have it on my phone so I should be able to get your messages.

Sorry if this is a problem, but I'm pretty sure it's not. I just wanted to make a post so I don't get demoted or anything.

*If this is the wrong thread to post this, than feel free to move it, because I know how Knife likes to do that :^)

Good Evening,

       I got into a recent argument with family and am planning to focus on my grades a bit more. I will be gone until the 23 of March. I am in no way quitting, just need to get away and focus on what could affect me in the long run. I appreciate everything you guys do for me. I could still message on my phone via steam but, you will not see me in-game or responding to reports. Sorry Guys..

Hello all, New staff and old staff.

I have finally managed to come to the terms of being able to explain in fuller depth as to why my absence has occurred.

Most of which is extremely personal, and cannot be posted here in fuller detail.

I had made a sudden disappearance back sometime before the holidays. One day I was on every single day, doing my contributions to the community, putting my all into my work in which I love, and the next day I was gone. The only thing that can take a man away from what he loves, has to be something of meaning to him.

During the seasonal times, a lot of violent acts had arrived in my life from other individuals. My parents Separation had become absolute warfare, and it's resulting in me moving.

I had also been in massive problems with my education. There was no time and in any way for me to have any distractions. This included a formal excuse of absence, or resigning of position. My education is at an all time low, and it needs to be focused on as it's primarily the most important activity I need in my life.

Now for those who were closer with me as Administrative members, community members, and closer significant others. They needed to all be pushed out of my life for these past couple of months, because stress, drama, and any other incidences acted as distractions.

Now for bigger questions some must have:

Will I be returning to TF2SS as an active Administrator?
Potentially yes. I will be notifying personally to Head of Administration on further to the topic.

What about Steam, will you be on again?
Potentially yes as well.

All questions here will be decided on how well I can manage my time, along with my education status, and any family activity.

For now I will be staying as an inactive member as I still do have the desire to perform for this community. Especially after the love I've gained for it, and its members as well. Though I do plan on returning to the community soon. This will all play out on my moving terms, internet access, my job and payments, along with rent.

Thank you for your time, and forgive me for any inconvenience.

Best Wishes,

I'm not gonna be active or well actually responding any messages for a few days.

I may still come online and play games, but other than that I won't be doing or saying anything due to personal reasons and a irl situation.

Just a heads up.

I will be inactive for quite a long time. I'm currently going through a lot of emotional stress and I do not want it to get in the way of my job. Sorry if it seems like I came in, did some things here and there, and just left all of a sudden. I will return to doing my job, I just don't know when. I will, however, still be online. For those who wish to know why the sudden news, you can message me on Steam.

Sorry guys, I just can't handle anything right now, let alone reports.

Edit: I'll be back on duty on March 20.
Edit2: I seem to be recovering much faster than I expected so I'll be able to handle reports from time to time.

As some of you may know, (those I'm closest to..) I currently won't be around much.. I'm just going through a lot of things right now. Need some time to myself. Very stressed out, emotionally as well. So unfortunately, I'm not exactly going to be on much.. I'll still however, check things out but, won't be on the servers much. Nor taking reports for now. I hope you all can understand, and not take it personally..
I'm not sure when I'll come back.. but I do know, it won't be for quite some time.
I thank whoever reads this, and appreciate it.
Take care, everyone. I'll be back, maybe in a couple weeks..

 Hello, as many of you know, I have been an administrator here for a short amount of time. I've been playing on the servers for basically as long as I remember. Meeting a lot of new people, it has been fun. But, the reason why I am making this topic, is the fact that I am going inactive. I know that it has been a very short run, I am very aware. But, some thing pop up in life that you don't expect.
 As some of you admins already know, I am going through a lot in my personal life, and I don't believe that it should be brought into any community, knowing how bright this one is. This may sound like a stupid reason, but, I don't want my problems to be conflicting with my job as an administrator, and dragging me down to not being able to take reports or go on the forums anymore. Who knows what could happen? So I am taking the time now to make this letter out to you all.
 I am still going to be playing on the servers, and contacting all of you, but, I'd like to thank each and every one of you that has been with me through this tough time I have been dealing with, it really means a lot to me, that you would take your time, and devote it into helping me. I could not have asked for anything else.
 So, yeah. I hope you understand my situation. :)


 Edit: May come back during the time of June, or July, where I don't have so much school work to worry about.

I will be taking a break from TF2 until probably the second half of summer. I just need a break from TF2 for a while, so I will not be responding to the report bot and will be away from my computer most of the time, other than my phone. I'll see you nerds some time soon.

Post by: Yee B Games on August 21, 2016, 03:02:45 PM
As of recently, I have found myself to not be too active on the servers anymore. I greatly apologize for this. The reason for this being is because I have become very invested in real life opportunities that can get me paid for doing things that I really love doing.
If you didn't know this already, I really love writing/composing music. Every now and then I upload new things I have created to my Youtube or Musescore account. However, as of lately, some people have contacted me asking if i could write something for their band and if I comply I will get paid money for it.
So, of course, I am following up on this offer, dedicating almost all of my time to writing things for this client... Also meaning I am not all too active in-game. So I'm not really really being all too helpful with reports, making sure the servers are clean, and giving punishment to people who deserve it.
I'm not too sure how long my inactivity is going to be... But all I do know is on top of all of this, school will start for me in a few days so I will be VERY busy, meaning I will probably not have any time at all to do reports.
I know that I will be able to be active on the forums and help outside the servers.
If you want to mark me as inactive, that's fine. But if there is anything I could possibly do to help out, I would gladly do it. I really love the SwapShop community, and i don't want to let other opportunities to end my career sooner than it needs to be.
Thanks for your time

I'll be inactive on tf2 mostly because of both MOUNTAINS of school work as well as college planning ect.

I might be back sometime during winter break, but if not then some time close to the end of the school year, so around April/June-ish

You might see me on the forums now and then if I even have the time, but until then, see ya in a little bit!

I am going inactive for a while. Don't know how long, and don't plan on being active for quite a while.

Senior year is hitting harder than I thought it would and I really can't maintain the balance between this job and school. If you have the JOY of having a school that makes you do a "Senior project" then you probably understand why I'm going away.

Not only that, but video games aint as fun as they used to be and I have a lot of plans coming up real soon with someone special in my life. I don't want her to feel like I'm prioritizing my computer over the time we spend together.

Adios, for now.

As most of you have seen my activity on steam and TF2 in general has really gone down these past few weeks.  Also as most of you may know i am a High School Senior who takes place in athletics.  This has caused me to devote all of my time into my sport and also leaving me with very little time for steam, TF2, and SwapShop.  I love this community to death and i want to stay here as long as i possible can so I'm choosing to go inactive for right now because Baseball means a lot to me and it is really what im going to be focusing on for the next 3-4 months.  I hope everyone can understand that this decision has nothing to do with the community its just i have a lot going on in my life at this moment and i believe i really need a break from Steam in general.  Thank You all for listening and have a great rest of your day

Estimated date of when you will return : Time of return is scheduled to be around the mid point of January.

The Holidays are a big time in the year, and I want to make sure I've got everything ready, this includes: Gifts for Family and Friends (This includes some Steam Friends and SS Staff... but who? :o) I've got some family reunions to go to as well as a time to spend the remainder of the year with loved ones. I'll still be able to talk. I just won't be able to do much because my agenda may already be occupied. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Additional info(Joke) : If I don't return... Then Synicle probably buried my fluffiness in the snow and left me. You all know what to do when this happens

I'm going to be taking a break from the Swapshop servers for the time being so I can clear up some personal problems irl and spend a bit more time with a few of my friends.

I don't really know when I'll come back but I can assume it'll probably be around the summer, if not, then I might settle for retirement instead.

See you guys in the long run. If Zabi comes back before I do, make sure one of you guys hit him with a shovel for me ❤️

Good afternoon everyone,

I'm making this post just to say that I'll be going inactive here for a couple months. It's my last quarter at college, so I'll be spending even more time away from TF2 in general. Hope you guys keep up the great work, and hopefully I'll see you all again for the summer!

Best Regards,

Post by: on August 22, 2018, 02:05:14 PM
Steam display name: Katze, Saki, Synicle

Are you resigning or going inactive : All Three of us are Resigning

Not sure if this is allowed, but I am speaking on the behalf of all of us because the other two don't have the time to make a post on the forums.

All three of us are retiring for the same reason, and it's a fairly simple one. We just don't really play TF2 anymore, We're so busy with our lives that we cannot keep up with TF2SS and so, we all three have decided to drop our roles and responsibilities of it, for more important things, our lives, and eachother.

This will be my final post and so I'd like to say this where it will be seen.
I can't thank anyone here enough for the past year I've been here. I also want to give my thanks to Hades, without him, I wouldn't be here and I would've lost everything I've gained. And my final thanks goes to Psykotik, and Sidepow, for being great Head Admins and showing me the ropes. Without those two, I wouldn't have became who I am now. Stay strong everyone.

 Katze 💛
