As long as we're this far off topic...
Like I said before Eric your avatar is way cool.
Now the reason.
Reminds me of John Michael Greer whose writings I really like.

John Michael Greer, Grand Archdruid
In 1995 Greer joined the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids (OBOD), began its correspondence study program, and progressed through the three degrees of Bard, Ovate and Druid, receiving his certificate as a Druid Companion of the Order in 2002. In 2003 he was honored with OBOD's Mount Haemus Award for Druid scholarship. He is also a member of the Reformed Druids of North America (RDNA), and was initiated as a Third Order priest of that tradition in 2008. In 2003, after a series of discussions with the surviving members of the Ancient Order of Druids in America, he was brought into AODA's Grand Grove as Archdruid of the East.

As far as I can tell, the second — and last — post by the OP was at May 15, 2014 2:52 am.

Hmmmmm....... First the "Mayor" of this Village disappears without a trace, and now the designate.... Looks like we have ourselves a mystery, kids.
Good luck to the next in command. One more reason I steer clear of joining villages or having friends.

It doesn't seem like too much of a mystery, it looks like they've been chased and/or scared away. It's also possible that they're waiting to hear back from placement, or going through the wranglings of an emergency camp meeting before coming back here. I really hope that it's one of the latter and not the former - some of the replies may have been hard to read, but in a tough love kind of way IMO.

Well, I sure hope it's not the harsh replies... I think the OP mainly posted because not cause they could not take care of it themselves but because they were worried about the virgins and how they'd find their way into the camp.

Just to add to the mystery..

My camp from last year, Asparagus Forest, considered camping with Playagon as did a camp quite connected with AP, The Future. When I saw this thread I showed my boyfriend who immediately passed it on to a friend in The Future who is also involved with CAPSLOCK and he got really annoyed that lies were being spread because he knew nothing of this drama or who the OP even is. He even said some stuff about CAPSLOCK's name being stolen or something. This guy is really busy and hard to pin down to get details from but basically that conversation made this whole thing seem even weirder :roll:

I'm not really sure what was confusing about my post but what I was saying is that I've spoken to (well sat next to my BF while he Facebook chatted to) someone else connected to Playagon and they had a very different perspective to the OP.

Post by trilobyte » Tue May 20, 2014 8:50 pm

@Jovankat - everything about your earlier post is confusing to me. As far as I can tell, it's a great bunch of hearsay though. Trying to re-read it, I'm not sure what AP refers to, is that a reference to Playagon, or did you mean to type AF (meaning Asparagus Forest)? So I guess you're saying that when you saw this thread, you showed your boyfriend, who then told a friend in a camp called The Future (who also was not a part of Playagon, but had also considered it), who is also involved with CAPSLOCK somehow. You're also relaying a claim that he's making about CAPSLOCK's name being stolen, but very short on details (presumably because it wasn't your conversation, you were just looking over the shoulder of somebody else's chat). That's some world class rumor-mongering!

I think the OP made it pretty clear that they were a member of New York Dangerous. I read the mention of CAPSLOCK in the post as his/her saying that NYD and CL were two camps in the village that were somehow left out in the cold because someone went AWOL. It's entirely possible that he had that wrong, as it's entirely possible that lots of details were incorrect. Unless one of the organizers from Playagon or CAPSLOCK chimes in with their own differing version of events, it's all just rumor and hearsay.

People go missing from message board conversations all the time. They could have fled the country, been attacked by a moose, swallowed by a sinkhole, done something sinister or had something sinister done to them, or something far more garden variety (and likely). Work or outside life gets busy, otherwise busy with camp drama, or just stressed out by the situation and a conversation going in a different direction than they'd hoped so they step away from the board for a while (which is really easy when the board isn't a place you frequent regularly).

Post by Jovankat » Tue May 20, 2014 9:55 pm

Yes I did mean to say AF.

The Future were part of Playagon at least up to about a month ago. When my boyfriend and I decided not to camp with AF we talked about joining The Future in Playagon or bringing our own camp to Playagon. It was hard to get info and what they were offering didn't sound like our bag so we went with something else. Now it seems The Future has split from Playagon too. The friend my boyfriend talked to is still very much involved in CAPSLOCK, the same as BF and I are with Asparagus Forest, we're not camping with them because of drama with one person but everyone else are friends of ours and we're still helping out with their planning and stuff. All I was trying to say is there is a lot more mystery to this than is immediately obvious.

Try not take too much delight in another camp's drama or misery. It sounds like they've got things hard enough as it is without people turning it into entertainment.

In the meantime, I've enjoyed the helpful suggestions, the snarky critiques, and the utter non sequiturs so far - we'll be on playa no matter what, but since I know the difference re: traffic, convenience, and efficiency of being placed vs being in whatever landgrab we can accomplish past G, I absolutely want an address. I'm not saying anyone here *has* to support us, but I wouldn't bet against us.
