OK this is a serious post, real talk.  There's a user on these forums, ThePancakeLady who I know has some real-life health issues.  The thing is, she hasn't logged in since February, and a "are you ok" message I sent in March hasn't been opened.  She's also not been active on Steam.  I don't know her outside of the Internet, but that doesn't matter--with the state of the world these days, I'm legitimately concerned for her safety and well-being.  Does anyone on this forum know her in person?  If so, is she alright?  I don't want personal information I just want to know if she's still with us.  I don't want any of us fading into the long dark for real.

@ThePancakeLady,

I've interacted with her on these forums many a time, I know of whom you speak and also have noticed her absence.  I was not aware of her irl situation and do indeed hope she is fine and doing well.   Maybe the folks at Hinterland can help reach out too?

I know her on twitter as well as on here. I asked her, and she said she was in the hospital for a while but is back home now, she's been super busy getting caught up on work as well as in her rehabilitation program (apparently she has serious problems walking), and hasn't had time to hit these forums specifically, but can be reached on Steam or Twitter.

I've asked her if it's okay to publish her twitter handle here; if she gives the green light I'll post it here so you can reach her that way.

Thanks!  I don't have Twitter myself but just knowing she's still alive and kicking is enough for me.  I had to euthanize my 16 year old cat recently and it's just got me thinking about things like this.

Thank you for your concern @ajb1978 it's great to see the community looking out for one and another. If she lets @stratvox know she's comfortable with the sharing of her Twitter handle that would be a great way to check up on her outside of the forums.

Hi @Admin! She has. I've sent it to @ajb1978 via DM, as I'm not comfortable just laying it out here for posterity.

I've also noticed the absence and had just wrote it off as them being busy, (Ive been less active due to life being busy as well). The recent inclusion of maple syrup has made me wonder again and Im glad to know she's being looked after by others in the community, warms my heart!

This community makes me so proud <3.

@ThePancakeLady was one of the first people to welcome me when I signed up on the forum, and always seemed to enjoy the beauty as well as the tomfoolery in the screenshots thread.  I had wondered myself and just noticed this today.  Sending good vibes.  🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂🙃
