resigning from a game?

I'm in a game in which the DM seems to have disappeared. We rolled initiative about a month ago and then no response. They may be waiting for an AWOL player to roll, but there have been no updates. What is the etiquette? Do I wait around (it's not taking any effort to check in every day or so). Or should I formally resign?

I would certainly post something about it in the ooc first, but sounds like you would already have done that if it has been a month. If that already happened some people might also send a pm, because people sometimes have a lot of multiple games and forget about individual ones. But it depends on the last visit time of the gm. If that was also a month ago then you may as well assume the game is dead, and dropping out is not really a breach of eqituette. Either way I generally leave a note in the ooc to the effect that I am dropping out and emphasise that I will be unsubscribing. That way if the game ever does restart people know they will absolutely need to pm me, because I'm not checking up on the game folder anymore.

Hope that helped.

You can do either.

If you think it will come back, just set it as a favorite and keep an eye on it.
If you don't want to bother anymore, post you are quitting in the OOC.

There isn't really any standard etiquette to it.

I do what Phettberg does...

so if the game restarts, and you want me, PM me.

if the game restarts and you don't, just go play. I will likely never know.
