vacation option

How long can you put yourself on vacation and if you post during that time does that buy you more time? For instance: if I put myself "on vacation" in my preferences on the 1st (and let's say you get 10 vacation days) but I post on the 8th, do you 10 days start over?

How do you put yourself on vacation?

In order not to lose your spot in your group, you go to "preferences" and click on the box marked "vacation". I think it is supposed to buy you 14 days of non-logging, however, there has been someone in my group who's been on vacation for over 20 days. I'd be interested in the answer to the OP's question too.

I was having some problems and I wrote pt and explained. I wasnt sure if I would be able to be online so I didnt want to lose my wonderful groups and teams. I am still on vacation and I have not been kicked out, but I have been logging and commenting since I have been on vacation status.

That's totally obnoxious. If you want to go on vacation, get out of your groups. Don't come back once every 8 days. You suck as a peer trainer. I hope it gets changed.

I think it's wrong to put yourself on "permenant vacation" just so you don't lose your place in your group. It's one think if you're still participating, but if you're not, please open up the space for someone who is "serious" about losing weight. This isn't a social club.

if you read my post above. I said I am logging daily and commenting daily as well. I wasnt sure whats going to happen with my connection due to some financial problems so I put myself on vacation mode and informed my groups, teams and pt of the situation.
