    I believe there's an option in Google Sheets where you can just upload an Excel file and it'll just automatically import it for you. Saved me some time when I switched computers and realized I wouldn't have Excel anymore. Speaking of that I might just get myself Excel again... I'd prefer downloaded copies now that I'm making them for my idols...

    Hey you mind if I take a peek into the Roniverse and see your VPP spreadsheet sometime?~

    How did you change everything in your profile? And also the background lol.

    I changed the profile so it's okay. Honestly I didn't like it either. I just don't actually have much design skill so I just pick a color and paste the code all over the place. I could set a background from an album, but I don't feel like going through the effort of putting a picture in my album just for that. Maybe at some point this week I'll give it a try. I need to make a text pad or something for VPP. I realized quickly this is going to turn into an unorganized mess. Are you planning to be the first person to 100% complete VPP?

    I've never used deviantart, but I've joked about going on and writing something really cringeworthy for laughs. Even as the youngest, there wasn't much 'taking care of' that existed in our family. My family sort of runs on being solitary and independent. We just kind of did our own things and really didn't discuss much. Most of the time if my mother worked a long shift she would just leave money and tell one of us to order a pizza. We were at-least well off enough that we didn't have to share everything. (We each had our own computers, game systems, etc).

    I mean it is a 300 player. You could blunder your queen and probably still be okay because they'll blunder it too. That doesn't mean you should go in being careless, but I do think you should be confident. Also most likely they look at your 800-900 rating and find it at-least a bit intimidating. Because I've been in the 300's, and that rating felt like a world away. So right now I've gotten past the 600's. I'm currently rated 708 ELO. So yeah my progress is still going. It just started skyrocketing really quickly again in the last few days. I only know two openings. (King's Indian/Reti, and Accelerated London System). I'm more comfortable with Reti, but I feel like the London System gets me into a better position.

    Yep that was for Halloween. I have no idea why I thought "This is the picture I want to share with all the staff". But uh yeah, nice to know the picture is still there. I wouldn't say being alone makes me depressed, but I do think it's easy to fall into a 'rut' when there isn't much activity going on. I have no motivation for online zoom classes. I find it awkward and hard to concentrate. At least it's a nice time to find new hobbies if your looking for positives. I might have never gotten back into chess if it weren't for this whole thing.

    Was it really only last December? Feels like much longer. And honestly yeah I would say I'm pretty shy even if I don't come off that way. Sometimes I'm bored and want to talk to someone, but it ends up in exchanges like this:

    I guess there isn't really much that decides my avatars. A little bit of it is my current mood (like i just changed it to a lazy skitty), most of it is just whatever I find nice to look at. I couldn't find any pictures of lanturn I wanted to use. I wouldn't say VPP is boring, but I have a tendency to start things and not stick with them. I'll go back to VPP though.

    It's ironic you mentioned that considering my first instinct with this avatar was to pull it from pintrest. Now I'm waiting for that random message where someone is like "Hey your using an avatar i drew". What was it like as an only child, and outside of your cousins did you still desire siblings? I'm the youngest in my family (1 older sister, 2 older brothers). So...that's something notable. I have a tablet but I pretty much gave to my mother, honestly I didn't use it. She likes to play old NES games on an emulator. Well if your working on college kids and hijnks you could always throw Jason Vorhees into the story (kidding kidding, I was probably playing that game too much).

    It actually terrifies me to run into much lower rated players, because did you notice that point drop if you lose? In a way it also makes it more thrilling, more on the line for you, and they have nothing but to gain. Oh for sure, fundamentals before theory. That's what I always hear. I'm iffy on queen resignations. You can always hope the person blunders, but it also makes you think "Am I wasting time by continuing"? I'm pretty sure Ben wasn't joking until someone informed him, but to save the embarrassment he probably played it off like it was a joke the entire time. He is a chess player, he probably calculates this stuff.

    Thanks, I do appreciate the compliment. I wouldn't say dashing, considering in one of those photos I had a plastic bag on my head. I wouldn't know how to describe myself...i'm just me I guess. I mean it was blatant because he was doing it to other people too. I always notice this sort of behavior. I also found it super amusing how he was leaving messages to every girl he could find, like pokecommunity was some sort of S-tier dating site.

    Hm, I wouldn't describe myself as extroverted. I'm in a weird position where I love talking (online and offline), but I usually don't feel like making the effort to do stuff. Ambivert might be fitting. I don't really have a preference for social activity or being alone. I am pretty shy around new people though.

    Thank you that's what I'd like when I asked Fairy to make it. My flair is pixelated and large maybe thats why, if it bothers others more I'll ask Fairy to fix it if she can.

    Yeah I got it finished now with my profile. Thank you for saying hi to me, I appreciate it.

    Thanks! I simply grew a bit tired of the Whismicott picture, however if I find one I like better then I might someday go back. Spinda is one of my favorite Pokemon ever, actually above Whismicott. aw how nice! So flattering. I...already forgot about VPP. I think I have something at level 100 that I didn't hatch.

    I drew 2 Crobat, I think the plan was to use them as my avatar picture. Fun fact: When I joined in 2017 my initial avatars were all crobats. Then I realized...why would I ever draw a crobat when I can just pull a picture from google. Oh no I'm not into poetry either, but I have a sibling who is quite a poet. Do you have any siblings? I think you mentioned something about an extended family. Though I'm not entirely sure what it means. You mentioned it pulled you out of the writing rut, so is there anything your currently writing at the moment? (uh aside from this visitor message reply).

    892 still isn't bad. I've climbed up to 670, so if I keep it up I'll be in the 700's soon. But the 600's are a roller coaster. Sometimes I find a person who blunders a queen in the first 10 turns, and someone who seems to have the fundamentals down and does a coordinated assault on my pieces. Even as a lower ranked player, I would advise not to go too far into theory. It seems the general agreement is that fundamentals can carry you up to 1,800. (although learning a bit of opening theory wouldn't hurt). If you think it'll improve your rating then who am I to say no. But yeah John Bartholomew is a YouTuber with a gift for teaching. Ohhh Ben Finegold. (to sort some confusion when he says QVC he means XQC). But here he is summed up in a few minutes.

    I do miss the staff forums. It was so interesting to see what was going on behind the scenes. But I wouldn't reprise my role just to see the staff forums. Because at the same time I just enjoy being here super casually. Yeah there was one person here a couple years ago who would follow me into threads trying to bait me into arguments...but I was just thinking "dude could you be more blatant about it". I never gave him much of a response, and he was eventually banned anyways.

    If you ever want to see something else funny from John, I would suggest his "Jeff the Killer series" or "Granny". Both are poorly made mobile games, and his reactions are great. Especially his reactions to getting spammed with ads. I mostly just watch him play indie horror games, stuff that can be completed in an hour and I would never want to purchase.

    It is cool to see, but don't stress yourself over it. I'm in the process of replying to people as I like trying to do it all at once. I have one private message to reply to, a couple quotes i want to respond to, i responded to a VM right before this. If asiaka/setsuna replies, those usually take about 30 minutes so I just make sure I can concentrate first. And there's still some messages on social media i need to get to.

    Hey Roni~!
    Oh really~? ThaI's pretty cool, I just put in the text code Fairy gave me for my flair, I really like the font as well. (❁´ω`❁) Right now at the moment I'm trying to follow the directions to decorate my profile she also did for me as well. To be honest it's going take a bit for me to put all the code she gave me in. Its hard when on a mobile phone doing all that. ˞͛꒰๑ऀ •̆ꈊ͒ू•̆๑ऀ꒱⁇ I hope your having a nice day/night, please take care and thank you for stopping by~!

    I thought so too! Been playing around with the idea for a while and I kinda just decided to go for it. It definitely feels very fitting?
    I think I just need a new Setsuna theme for it now...~

    So what you're saying is I could have my name on a wall of fame somewhere... I like the sound of that...~
    Setting it for a milestone like that sounds like way more fun, I just kinda went "y'know what would be cool? A fancy flair" and then punched in a few numbers, haha.

    I think I left the drawings up on my profile. I had a different computer and just scribbled random pokemon and animals sometimes. They aren't that great either. Aside from drawing, how do you feel about writing?

    No way could I ever do bullet chess. I play all my games rapid 30 minutes, anything less is unimaginable. When I get a bit more comfortable with the fundamentals maybe I'll start playing 20. My progress has slowed to a crawl right now. Only rated 639, although I beat a 741 rated player last night. I tried watching gotham chess and it really messed me up. That stuff is not beginner friendly. Even on his beginner videos he skips right over fundamentals and delves straight into opening theory. Maybe I just watched the wrong videos or something. By the way what do you think of ben finegold? He has some...amusing opinions.

    Yeah probably not, although I was still pretty friendly in my messages. I didn't dislike anybody personally. It was more of just me being a bored teenager and seeing how many people would respond. (sometimes up to 9 pages). There have been a couple trolls who have come and gone on pokecommunity, but they usually don't last long. I'm really quick to spot it.

    That part with the office sound clip made me laugh so hard, and John shouting "No way, this is a joke, it has to be a joke". But yeah his attitude makes things way easier for those who are scared by these things, as evidenced by the comments people leave on his videos.

    I might have a little fun with it if I find something perfect for it, haha, thanks.~

    I'm not sure if there's a way to view it, I thought it was displayed on profiles but I must've been thinking of something else. For me though, it was near the end of February, almost 2 weeks ago. I didn't even know you'd been in it that long, I just saw the day you updated your flair again and must've forgotten.
