I think that it would be a good idea to have some sort of indicator on one's forum profile to let others know that the user has not been active recently or is on hiatus https://i.gyazo.com/d6a1538292d0d23f52e2c87e4e7e3ce2.png (this thing) Here is what I would suggest 1. Have the hiatus status appear after someone has made a "departure" thread on the Scent Rolling forum. 2. Have the hiatus status appear after the user has been inactive for over 30 days I believe that this status would be useful when users are posting on threads that have been running for a long time. They can have a way of knowing whether someone they might want to reply to will be active enough to likely respond to their reply in an older thread.
