    I would make a haiku here but uh I'll save that stuff for the thread. Anyways I almost beat a ranked 700 player today, but I misclicked and threw the game. Ouch that stung. In a way it also gave me confidence, before I misclicked I was completely dominating the match. I think I'll give chess a bit of a rest when I hit 1,000 ELO. That's the main goal. I usually just stack my pieces towards the middle, looking for forks with my knight. I also think I've thrown people off by never opening with the traditional D4 stuff.

    Hm, I can't say too much about back in the day. I only joined in October 2017. But yeah things change quickly. I would love to see how things were in 2013 or 2014. And it's crazy to think Off-Topic was around all the way back in 2003. (If you click the last page you'll find topics from back then). Just don't be a goof like me and bump them. My first visitor message on Pokecommunity was "I'd appreciate it if you would stop bumping old topics".

    John Wolfe has some hilarious videos. There's one in particular I can link if your up for it, but not sure how you feel about longer stuff. Your right about youtube changing in that way, 1 million is now a common thing. But yeah I finished SH2. I wouldn't even say it was that scary, just pretty moody and gloomy. (then again we all have different ideas of scary).

    It's okay. I really think chess is something you have to be in the mood for, or your playing will suffer. I'm very happy, because I started at 580 on chess.com. I plummeted down, after two months of practice I've almost climbed back up to 580. (sitting at 575 right now). It's like I've gone full circle, and it feels like such progress. According to IM John Bartholomew, the biggest issue for players around 900-1000 are pointless moves. He was playing some players around that level, and pointed out every time they pointlessly pushed a pawn forward. (which was a lot).

    I think it's just the change in moderation. Adriana (she went by the username 'her') moderated off-topic and was just a very lighthearted person, and the forum just kind of mirrored her personality. Also uh it seemed a lot less PG. I just remember more sexually suggestive threads, but haven't seen them at all recently.

    This guy is legit the only horror youtuber I follow: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSjXXHwfaDq1w9oQ0xgOFNg. He's so chill, but still has enough energy and humor to where he isn't sleep inducing. But also I'm about to finish Silent Hill 2, yay!

    I'm still on an increase. Currently sitting at 560 ELO, will probably hit 600 soon, depending on my momentum. I have it set to where I can face slightly higher rated players, and I do fine against the 600's. Yeah I watched some pretty long videos about 'hanging pieces', people give away pieces all the time at this level. I can just wall my king and wait for them to throw the game. Of course this is going to stop working eventually, but right now it's why my ELO is going up so fast.

    This is the greatest topic I ever made. (back from 2018) https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=405000. Even though someone called it stupid. Had some pretty funny replies. Off-Topic was a bit sillier back then, so usually these kinds of threads would get more responses. (Now I'm lucky if they get 3).

    Nope haven't played it. Taking a break from Silent Hill 2, I want to finish the rest of the game in one night. We live in an eerie looking forested area, makes these games much more atmospheric. Do you follow any youtubers into this kind of stuff? Honestly I only follow one, find most of them get too 'screamy'.

    Alright so the image really doesn't play nice with that. It zooms in if I contain the size, so I might have to play around with things more. I don't know if there's really a solution to make it look good on everything for flairs... </3

    Funny thing! I realized that I could just set my username to 0px. I was playing around with the status title... thing (Seriously what's the actual name for it...) and thought "What if I just made it as small as I could?" I actually never noticed the side gaps since I'm usually zoomed in. Thanks for that!
