I thinks she's fine. Check LM forums.

Last activity for her in LM forums was on 24 Feb 2019? and that is why I'm asking.

I've noticed her absence too. @Poppet's last Avsim visit was back in March. Hope she's ok.

She got married and believe she wants to take care of her family.  That's truly understandable.  All the hard work she did for AVSIM was greatly appreciated and we miss her!

Well thats a poor excuse for not visiting and posting here daily.

Hopefully she’ll be back soon. Certainly a very helpful & talented person indeed.

Hi,

While, of course and without any evidence to the contrary, I accept the explanation given for her coincidental and seemingly sudden withdrawal from the LM and AVSIM forums, I find it a little disquieting that she did not take a few moments to inform our respective communities of her intentions. Certainly she was under no obligation to do so but it does seem strange, nonetheless. 

During her tenure as Moderator I believe Elaine (aka Poppet) earned our undying respect and admiration as we all struggled ‘to tame the beast’. Her methodical instructive approach and tireless efforts to help us were truly extraordinary, set her apart from others and richly deserved our gratitude and thanks. 

I think it is reasonable to say that her relationship with the community became quite special so the manner of her departure does, for me at least, raise more questions than answers. 

Jim has been kind enough to provide us with an explanation but this does prompt the question as to why we were not told long before now? On the face of it, It does seem that this thread was necessary to provoke this response.

Regards,

Mike

She is still a member and may one day return.  Right now I think she got overwhelmed with taking care of her family and marriage and her position as an AVSIM Moderator.  I do not think Moderators, Admins, or Members should have to explain why they are leaving AVSIM.

I'm jealous. She didn't tell me she had another guy.

Seriously, best wishes Poppet.

Topic locked.  If Elaine wanted to post at AVSIM and in this topic, she would have.  She wants some peace.  Please respect that.
