    No consistently here. Fell back to 930. Not horrible, but when I start losing I can't stop. I just keep playing obsessively until I get a win.

    I'm not even playing that bad. Almost everybody I came across today played with decent accuracy and little to no blunders. I guess it was an unlucky session. https://imgur.com/a/0x7fd58. My games are getting shorter. I took a more aggressive approach.

    Funny enough, I thought of a chess club a while back but changed my mind. I have no idea what to do with those things. I made my club, had 5 or 6 members, the conversations went all over the place and were mostly single comments. And I put little effort into it as the host.

    I have no idea how to respond when the person just attacks my developing pieces with pawns, and only pushes pawns the entire time. I ran into so many players like that today. I have to retreat and end up crumbling.

    Yeah the speed of improvement after puzzles is different for everybody. I'm all the way at 960 now. I've been playing pretty well, but then again maybe the improvement has been coming for a while and now it's just taking place, like something clicked in my head.

    I'm not a fan of Hikaru. He goes way too fast. I can't follow a single thing he does. I'm straying from YouTube anyways. I feel like I'm doing better just figuring things out on my own. I'll return eventually to the youtube scene.

    Let me think on it. I have no consistency either, and my last club was a disaster. Even if not, I'll be the first sign up. (or i'll try).

    Apparently doing puzzles enough will cause tactics to start appearing on the board, like stuff you wouldn't spot otherwise. It's also a way to improve board vision. Which is why they are so highly regarded. Slowly but steadily hitting the 1,000 mark. I seem to be doing okay in the 900's now instead of being knocked right out.

    I liked this series. The grandmaster starting at bottom elo and working his way up while giving instruction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ytkf3qZTj74&t=22s

    I'll probably be on lichess more when I hit 1,000 on chess.com. I know I seem pretty fixated on this, but it's been a goal for over a year. I'm floating around the 900's again. Doing more puzzles than ever.

    Yeah they aren't really 'lessons'. A computer explains stuff to you and then you play the correct moves. Everybody learns different, so I guess it depends. I tried Gotham Chess but for some reason I play worse after watching his videos. Maybe I'm subconsciously trying to imitate him or something.

    I'm still primarily on chess.com because I have a platinum membership, and might as well take advantage of the features. Also weird how it started me at 1500. I got checkmated after one mistake in the opening. Although regarding chess.com, they are pretty greedy. I'm already a second tier member, but still can't watch the videos without upgrading again.

    Your username is brilliant by the way.

    We should play bullet chess sometime for the hilarity.

    Pictures are downloadable. That reminds me of what we did in our school. It was easy enough to find some extension that got around any sort of blocks. Our school had laptops already in them, but they were built like a fortress. Like a kiosk demo in a gamestore. Only so much you could really do.

    They know how to display advertisements even with airplane mode off. I think they build them as part of the game and not as an extensional internet thing. It only goes off when you pay.

    I never visited a doctor either until that issue arose. I didn't even have one anymore apparently, so they found a new one that took my insurance. Everybody has anxiety to an extent, however when it's persistent and happening all the time for no reason, it becomes a disorder. I'm fine on the medication, thankfully. I got lucky.

    Ha. I'm amused you remembered. Yeah, I'm still on a chromebook. It can't do much aside from homework. Try to download anything and you'll be met by a message saying "you need a windows".

    Bitlife is free but you pay for the extras. I wanted the advertisements gone. I'm trying so hard to get into the Mafia, giving my characters stereotypical names like "Vinnie" and "Paulie". Then they get killed before graduating highschool.

    I never sought a diagnosis for it specifically. I was having some tests done, and they explained it was a mental health issue, not physical. There is no set time period that I would delete an account, and it's not frequent.

    I looked up ADHD. Can't relate much. "Attention difficulty" is listed as a main symptom.

    I can respond now. I needed a charger for my computer.

    I have not heard of Xenoverse. Is it still a Pokemon related thing or is this an entirely different subject? From that name, it just reminds me of Xenoblade. I've been playing a game called "bitlife" which I spent $5 on (totally worth it). It's basically a text adventure, you make a character and go through life with them. I made a character named "Nasty Burrito". He had dreams of going into the Mafia. To get initiated. he needed to commit a murder, so he attempted to kill his 2 year old sister. He tossed a baseball at her head, but she caught it and bashed him in the skull with it. The mafia didn't happen.

    I was on the team for around exactly a year. Your reasons are valid. I don't know much about ADHD and I'm no expert on mental health. I'm diagnosed with GAD. It can make me slightly erratic, as I'll randomly delete accounts, cut people off, etc. Otherwise I doubt it bears any similarities to ADHD. I'm also taking a prescription medication.

    I took my turn. I got sidetracked. Anyways, I'm back up around 900 again. I beat a 1,000+ rated player and it gave me lots of points back. He blundered his queen in the first 5 turns, so it wasn't the most exemplary win.

    Do you still play rom hacks? Yeah what you said reminds me of when I joined the social media team on here. I was doing a very half hearted job and it just wasn't fun. I sent in my application for no reason and didn't expect to actually get picked. I give praise to the staff on here. Sure as hell isn't for me :c This place is purely for fun to me and I can appreciate anybody who gives that up to better the place, you know what I mean?
