Hello, DDO. I've now been around for quite a while. And so, I would like to give a nice and lengthy post on the time I've spent on this site.

When I reached 5,000 posts, I gave a somewhat long list of people who I gave some short messages to, aside from a few of my closest friends. But as I type this (I didn't plan anything), I don't predict any sort of tone indicating optimism.

You all know me by now. I'm that guy in the forum who never manages to keep from the dramatic. While you know that much, I hope you know I didn't particularly enjoy those experiences of mine. As a matter of note, I've wanted to deactivate dozens of times (and relatively recently). But, that blue fvcking notification thing is like a hard drug. When I first joined, nobody talked to me, knew who I was, etc. My friends now, for the most part, didn't like me when they first interacted with me. I said this in a thread a few weeks ago, and I'll say it again: the only member who I recall being nice to me in their first interaction with me while I was still a new member was Thett. Most to all other members didn't really like me and they let it show. So, when I was first around, someone messaging me, or replying to a forum post was an uncommon occurrence. I wanted more, and over time things got better socially - at least somewhat. And for a while, I really enjoyed my time here. I didn't have a lot of problems, and other people even had less problems with each other. I really think people have, on average, started to treat each other a lot worse. It's tiring to me. The interaction has cooled off in its good feeling. But when I do get that notification, I want to save the goodness of the past - and like a hard drug I set out for more and more to achieve the same original feeling each day. So DDO is literally crack. Or as one certain member says, "crinack".

I don't really need to point to examples to show people where their relationships have gotten worse. Everyone should well know what is wrong with their time here, and what is worsening. I also don't want this taken down, so I'll give a general message on that: rethink the way you approach people and conversations. I think it helped me in times past a bit - and it can still help improve the once closer group we have here.

So DDO, on the whole, has gone from serving as something contributing to the destruction of my ego, to being my greatest escape, to being a desperate escape and occasional destroyer of any hint of confidence, self-esteem, or ego.

And looking this draft and final submission over a bit, I have no clue, still, what I'm even trying to relay to people here. Oh well. On we go.

It can be worse. I can talk to the people physically around me. I can follow politics alone, and wall off myself from the world completely. And this is what DDO's greatest service to me is: the disallowance of me from shutting people out entirely. But I must express cynicism some more. I have a strong feeling that this will go through my relationship cycle like anything else, from mere participation in the forum to the friends I hold dear - at least right now. With me, things don't last. You'll find I'm very expendable. I can see it before it happens, and this may be ultimately a sufferer of the same fate as any other relationship for me. No friendship, close familial tie, or whatever has lasted more than a few years before deteriorating. With me at least, I don't have the same friends IRL that I used to. And while that may seem natural for my age, I don't really feel any closeness to my family anymore. I haven"t felt any for a while. So we can discuss my positives and negatives. The only compliment I ever really hear from people consistently is that I'm intelligent - and I think a few certain members would argue against that much. But being intelligent is worthless when you're seen as an a$shole. DDO, and my friends, can do better than someone who is just smart - who hates the majority of interaction, who has no will to do anything, and who can only bring you down.

I sincerely hope that DDO gets better than it is in its current state. It's not good enough, and it was a lot better not too long ago. The usernames haven't really changed that much, but the people seem to have. Go by this rule: if Harder can get along well with someone, you can be best friends with them. It's not that difficult to beat me at being amicable.

And that's a ten thousandth post, classic Harder reflection style.

But to make sure this thread is read, and isn't totally dark, cynical, and downbeat - ask me anything, and I'll give honest opinions of people if they want one.

Just noticed this thread, so I congratulated you in the wrong place XP

I'll kinda agree with you in some of those aspects, but I'm not here to share my story today. No, I'm here...to ask for an honest opinion ;3

Also, questions:
1. Do you want a hug?

2. Did you skip over #1? You should really answer it ;3
