Sometimes active users decide to retire from, or leave, Wikipedia. Users may choose to retire after specific unpleasant experiences, or simply due to a loss of interest. Semi-retiring means a user's activity levels significantly drop, while they don't leave Wikipedia entirely. Retirement should not be confused with wikibreaks; the former is generally a permanent status, rather than a temporary break. Users who have retired may return at any point, though multiple, temporary retirements are discouraged as unnecessary drama.
