    I'm still primarily on 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, 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?

    I got a really neat quick checkmate:

    The cool thing about being lower is that I can try all sorts of new things. I really like connecting the bishop and knight early. It seems to work well.

    I almost always do 30 minutes. I tried 10 but it feels like I get more focused on the clock than the actual game. The lower ratings can be strange. I feel like 900 is likely the place when most start playing more traditionally. As soon as I fell into the low 800's, met 3 opponents who moved the queen early, one who only moved pawns, another who just wanted to trade everything no matter what.

    Did you ever get back into YouTube? I've always wondered what it feels like for a video to go viral. Like, you go to sleep and wake up to find 800,000 people clicked.

    For some reason, I fell into the lower 800's. Maybe I'm just tilted or something. I keep playing like "going to get those points back" and I just dig myself down.

    It's weird because I took a long break, came back, and instead of being refreshed it's like I got way worse. Maybe it's time to reset and learn from scratch. (not my account, just how I play).

    It's funny how you mentioned not wanting to lose ELO. I feel the same way, but isn't it just an arbitrary number? It's so easy to get fixated on it. I do for sure.

    This is a fast reply but I'm awake for no reason, so...

    I can certainly understand weaknesses. I've developed so many bad habits. I became so paranoid about blundering or hanging pieces that I'll stuff everything into a corner. I don't remember the last time I've checkmated someone (besides my uncle once on the actual board).

    Also looking at analysis too much isn't a good thing. Sometimes I'm like "okay this looks like a move the computer would approve of" and I'm not thinking for myself.

    Then there's me not paying attention to the game, tabbing out and doing other things. This is probably why I played so much stronger on a board. All my focus was on what was happening (despite my constant chatter).

    That makes me wonder why we don't just use bots to massively improve. Set it to 3000 ELO, get beaten into another planet, but you would learn right?

    Do you value bishops or knights more? For my skill level right now, I like knights more. I can never seem to coordinate my bishops as much.

    It's fine.

    Yeah he played in a club when he was younger. The first game he was clearly not being serious. He tossed his queen out early. I trapped it, what proceeded was a slow hour long game of me sapping away every piece.

    We ate dinner, he went for a smoke break. Came back and he absolutely destroyed me in about 10 turns. It wasn't pretty. He outplayed me on every move.

    The 3rd game was another long one. Eventually I was about to promote to a queen, and he forfeited.

    It was so much fun though.
