Missing (in) Acktion

Not sure whether anyone will be able to answer this but does anyone know where Acktion has disappeared to? He hasn't been online since mid-June and hasn't posted since end of May.

We were in touch pretty much daily talking about writing & whatnot, and then he vanished. In his last couple of messages to me, he said he was having a few health issues and I'm just worried about him.

This is a long shot but if anyone does know, can you send me a PM?

Thanks,

Essie

I was wondering about him yesterday. He usually comes around at contest times. I hope he's ok.

I know he was working on an entry for the Nude Day competition but that's been and gone. Thanks for posting, it's good to know others are thinking of him and wishing him well.

I'm just bumping your thread, Essie.

He wrote such a great little story in the smells thread in Writers' Exercises, and turned that into a listed story once.

I noticed he seems to come and go, I hope he is OK.

Thank you, Naoko.

It's been nearly 6 weeks since I've heard from him and now a month since he's been online, which is highly unusual.

Just wish I had another way of contacting him but I don't. Miss my friend a lot.

Aww, it's a tough one. We make close friends with people on here, and it's very hard if they have to disappear for some reason but we don't know for sure if they are OK.

I hope you hear back soon.

Yes, please keep us posted if you hear anything.

You know for many of us lit is a great escape from real life and its bullshit.

Because of that is seems even more upsetting when real life intrudes here and our friends get sick or go through real life crap that takes them away from here.

Reality checks are never fun here in fantasy land.

Thanks, LC, I appreciate you posting.

I imagine he's on a round the world cruise, enjoying sunsets and hoisting cocktails in the air, checking out the pretty ladies as they walk past his deckchair

Anything less than that and I shall be an extremely cross Essie.

Yep, he's on a cruise. That must be it....

Please

Bumping this to see if anyone has any clues as to the whereabouts of Acktion?

Was anyone else in touch with him?

I just want to know if he's still out there somewhere.

Please. I miss my friend.

Have you tried contacting him through his author feed-back page? Maybe he's still mulling around over in the story section and just stopped checking the forums...

Thanks, StrangeLife, appreciate the information - I sent a message via there yesterday so will wait and see if that bears fruit.

Just got it (and the lovely little bonbons!). Soothed my soul to see it, thank you, dear one

Hope all is well. He seemed like a stand-up guy.

Me too. He is a stand-up guy, very intelligent and funny. Can be a grumpy bum at times but can't we all?!

I'm going to give it another week or so and then if I don't hear anything from him or anyone else here, I'm just going to have to reluctantly accept that for whatever reason, he is gone. Have tried everything else I can think of.

He has told me that he deliberately stays away from the forum for long periods so that he gets writing done, but I'm surprised that he missed Nude Day. I know that his health is an issue. I've had other friends here disappear for long periods for a variety of reasons-- broken computer, avoiding the drama...

Don't lose hope. I won't either.

Just wanted to say thank you to those who posted on this thread and PM'd me.

Unfortunately, no news as to where Acktion may have gone but at least if he does come back, he'll see that he was missed and is held in regard.

With all that's gone on in the world lately, don't miss the opportunity to tell those you care about what they mean to you or even just that you're happy they're on the planet, because you never know what's around the corner

(Yes, I'm in a sappy mood today - sue me )

If you find out anything, let us know. Acktion is missed by many, whether he knows or not. It's good you're keeping faith.

I'm not sure what to think at the moment. I checked his profile last night and it said he was online, which made me VERY excited! I sent him a PM... but nothing.

All I can do is hope that he's okay and that he'll reply one day. In the meantime *shrug* I'll just keep his seat warm, I guess.

Bump.

With the sad news of Robin Williams' passing, feels like the right time to try again - sometimes all it takes is one person to reach out, to make us feel like someone cares we're still here on this planet, to make a difference.

So, Acktion, wherever you are, if you ever read this, just wanted you to know that you made a difference to me, and I care.

Anyone heard from him?

Apparently he logged on couple of days ago (18th) but *shrugs*

I should probably give up, right? But I made a promise and I intend to keep it.

So, as before, I just want to know he's okay. If someone's logging in on his behalf, please just let me know, okay? Please.

You are obviously a good friend. Don't give up. He will show up somewhere!

Thanks, Peppa. Looks like he (or someone) logs in every few days or week or so, but no new posts and no messages.

*shrugs* All I can do is hope he's all right and that he knows he's missed.
