    I haven't heard back yet, and the person I asked has been active. I'm taking this as a "no". Which is good...because I'm having second thoughts. I can also understand not needing another guy if the team is working out. I was offered my position back if requested, but that was two years ago.

    Well the 10,000 post thing might not happen. But hey did you know I'm 30 points away from 1,100 on Maybe I'll hit that. It's not even a concern anymore, I just play for fun now. Yet I've still been going up.

    I liked helping with the Facebook page. It was kind of nice contributing in a way and I know my way around social media, so it felt familiar.

    I would also like to hit 10,000 posts before my birthday...which is two weeks. I don't think it's going to happen. Would be neat though if I hit it on the exact day. (I'm 800 posts away currently).

    A bit random, but I made a request to join the Social Media Team again.

    I might have missed my window. It's been a long time. I'm fine with being told yes or no. Just randomly felt up to it again. (impulsively at 3 in the morning).

    Well, good news. The virus seems to be completely gone.

    I had to factory reset my computer, so rip to some of the games I downloaded out of excitement for having a windows.

    Thanks. Considered Ditto as Marnie in a similar pose too.

    Thought of it too late for April Fools' Day, unfortunately. Would have been a decent, quick staff theme. Demanded little artistic skill. (Depends on the original image, of course.) Creates a Ditto as Wooloo without too much issue for anyone without the inclination.

    Oh well. Perhaps next year.

    It's all good. I haven't been playing chess anymore. Other things took interest and I sort of forgot about it.

    Best of luck with life, and thanks for stopping by and letting me know. I appreciate the courtesy.

    I got more points back this morning because someone had cheated.

    I seem to be lucky and unlucky. Unlucky to run into cheaters, lucky they get caught.

    All good. Natural improvement never leaves, no matter how rusty I get. If so, I would be 800 again. I've still stood between 990-1040 despite how 'bad' i feel I've been playing. You get 25 puzzles per day on free tier Honesty it's more than enough. But yeah, on lichess you could go crazy and do all you want.

    I just didn't care much for wanda as a character. Kind of forget she existed among the captain america/thor/stark storylines. Generally enjoyed the thor movies and felt like I slogged through the iron man ones. I also watched them all in 3 weeks, so says a lot that I still liked Ragnarock and Endgame. I could have easily been burned out by then.

    They rushed out a 2 hour tribute show on live TV for him right after his death. Then found out mid way through he had just murdered his wife and child. They've archived every episode ever of WWE, but they've done everything to keep that out of existence. I remember seeing it live when I was 7, not understanding fully what had happened. The murders also occurred on my birthday.

    I forgot to answer, but we saw The Lion King in live theatre. It was fun, I wasn't really familiar with it.

    We can play tomorrow. I guess we'll both be rusty. I stopped playing for a while and dropped nearly 50 points. Still didn't get knocked out of 1,000, but my motivation died after hitting the goal. I'd rather just have fun now and play silly. But yeah if you want to improve go for it. You could probably just play 1 game per day and study it. Highly recommend puzzles, even if it's only 3 per day. Can be boring, but eventually you gain instant pattern recognition.

    I need to catch up on marvel. I saw the new spiderman, but haven't watched all those new disney+ series yet. (what if, loki, wanda vision etc).

    Do you have a preference for how I go about the next game? Since it was our first time playing I did my normal opening. I could do something funny like the king's gambit or the bongcloud.

    Reminds me of Chris Benoit. If you aren't familiar with WWE you might not know him. He was known to be one of the most entertaining and captivating performers ever. Annnnnd he murdered his wife and child, then himself. This started a decade long debate about separating man from art. In his case, it's much harder.

    You know what I said about 1,000+ games seemingly coming down to tactics?

    Ermm...not really. I take it back. Throwing is less prevalent, but people still do it.

    I just beat an 1100 after I hadn't touched chess in 5 days, because he blundered a bishop and I swapped him to the end.

    It was fun. Saw live theatre. Let me know when you feel like doing the game. I haven't been playing at all, so we'll see how it goes this time.

    The skill gap in chess is insane. I don't think they use engines. I think that a 1700 fighting me is like facing a toddler. Similarly to how I feel now fighting 600s-700s, they would feel I'm the one using an engine. Accuracy tends to skew in favor of higher rated players due to that player being able to find many good moves against questionable play.

    Ah, so you built your own PC? Must feel like a worthwhile investment.

    Yeah I avoided that. Since you bought it up, (trying not to speak ill of the dead, that sort of thing) yes he was a questionable man. He had many terrible view points, but I think it's a case that we should separate the man and appreciate him solely as a player. Because he was a great player, one of the best ever.

    Haven't seen it. I haven't even watched Queen's Gambit. That said, I like Tom Holland's spiderman better.

    Quick Self-Introduction
    Filipino freelancer guy in his 20's who just so happens to like Pokemon enough to have an account here and semi-regularly post around~
    Heya~ my name's Roni, but Aaron is my real name. My friends on here stick to calling me Roni though, so as not get confused with a fellow Aaron who's a far more notable member on this site. I would suggest you follow suit :p

    I love just hanging around here and posting casually if I have the time and energy, but those are quite fleeting at this point in my life thanks to executive dysfunction. I truly wish I was more consistent, because PC has probably some of the most awesome people I've ever known.

    Regardless, I do my best to be friendly, approachable, and easy to talk to, so please don't be afraid to hit me up for a convo about anything! I'd definitely have a lot more to say if you talk about any of my interests listed below, because I've fixated about all of them at some point. There will be times I'm burnt out af from socializing tho -- my introverted self's social battery is just not as long lasting as others unfortunately -- but if I remember to, I will absolutely pick the conversation back up at some point bcs I do love talking to people :D
