My first post on this site was on April 21st. Now, 32 days, 8 hours, and 33 minutes later, I have written a thousand (what am I doing with my life).

When I first came across this site, I was pretty depressed because of quite a bit of shit happening (some gradually, most suddenly). Quite frankly, it was enough to make me break down for a little while, which I'm not proud of.

But, that was over a month ago, and before I even knew about this site. Since then, much has changed, and I'm forever grateful to the community here, so you as well, for offering me support and solace with your words on PM's and forums, even if you were unaware of doing so (which you probably were). I honestly don't know where I would be right now if I never met you guys, so I thank you as a community.

I'm not going to point out anyone individually in shout-outs, mainly because I find them rather unnecessary, and hell, you guys already ask for HO's, so why do you need to feel more special? :P

So, now that I had my say, Ask Me Anything, obviously. However, I want to ask you some questions as well (hence the AUA). Feel free to answer them below at your own discretion.

That's my 1,000th post, and I hope I'll get to write another in another month after a good number of Mafia games, election threads, flame wars, Personal forum rants, meme battles, and replying to the ever-many thoughtful and intellectual discussions in the Religion forum. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go do something productive.

Why is DDO so important to you?

How long do you think you will stay on this site?

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Who or what would you die for?

Who do you think would die for you?

How do you feel about your life so far?

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

How do you feel about death?

What do you want to do before you die?

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?
Have no regrets.

Could be better, but it's been great.

No.

When it comes, I will gladly take death's hand.

Live my life, and maybe learn.

A good guy, who can sometimes be funny.

Azathoth, from the Cthulhu mythos.

Honest Opinion?

First of all, how did you get to 1k so quickly? I've been here for almost 3 months and you've already surpassed me.

Why is DDO so important to you?

It's allowed me to jump outside my comfort zone and do things I wouldn't do in real life. For example, the story I posted in this forum indicates that:
http://www.debate.org...

I'd never tell anyone this in real life, but DDO offers a sense of community, even if we have the occasional flame war.

How long do you think you will stay on this site?

Until either DDO dies or I die.

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?

N/A

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Those special members would be Vaarka, lannan13, Hayd, MissERationlist, you, Rosalie, YYW, etc. I'm probably missing some people., but those are the first people I think of.

Who or what would you die for?

What: I'd die or what I believe in.
Who: I'd die for my little half-sister Abigayle, my step sister Xena, my step mom, my girlfriend, my brother, my mother, and my closest real life friends.

Who do you think would die for you?

I'd like to think the people I listed above would die for me.

How do you feel about your life so far?

It has it's ups and downs. So far, I've gone through some sh*t, but through that sh*t I've found things to live for.

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

I honestly don't think so.

How do you feel about death?

I'm terrified of death. I know it'll come someday, but I want to put that aside to enjoy the happier moments.

What do you want to do before you die?

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?

I already said I'm never leaving. On the off chance that I do, I want to be remembered as a companion and overall a fun person to talk to. Same goes for real life.

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?

I don't even know. It could just be a skeleton throwing disks in front of a trippy background or it could be an indication of who I am as a person. You'll never know. Decide for yourself.

Now I want to hear you answer these questions Ops.

You remind me of Vaarka--your nature's pretty silly and you're rather lighthearted (and you're both fools), and you're pretty good at Mafia. We haven't talked much outside of it, so I can't really say all that much on you as a person.
Have no regrets.

Why is DDO so important to you?
I'm bored and lonely, so this has almost become more social then debating for me. This place seems to be a breeding ground for hormonal teenagers anyways

How long do you think you will stay on this site?
As long as I have no real friends

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?
I regret setting my username to Sam7411. I want it to be Generalsamston, like all my past usernames.
Also, my alibi "Hillary.Clinton"

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?
I greatly respect the younger members of the site (i.e. Hayd and famousdebater) because around my age they have even become influential members of DDO. They have shown remarkable intelligence, maturity, and humor that some older members on this site lack.

Who or what would you die for?
My family, justice, or freedom. Let's hope it never comes to that....

Who do you think would die for you?
Hopefully no one, I don't want anyone to do die preventing me from dying

How do you feel about your life so far?
My life has been full of opportunities as a military child. I have moved at least 9 times, on my 6th school, and lived in Europe. Because of this, I think have gained a greater perspective in life. It also means that I have no friends.

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?
No. They did not have Civ 5 then.

How do you feel about death?
Not sure....even though I am Catholic I definitely have my doubts

What do you want to do before you die?
I want to just be able to sleep through the whole day without any repercussions

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?
As someone who stopped freeloading and finally started serious discussion on the forums. In real life, someone who fulfilled his duties and principles in the world.

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?
In response to all these ads portraying me as a single Muslim, I took a screenshot and put as my profile pic.

Congrats on 1k you lil rascal.

Why is DDO so important to you?

It's really a pastime for me. Interacting with some of the members is an interesting experience, but my life isn't on here. I can go without DDO just fine, but if I ever feel like I have nothing better to do I'll interact :D

How long do you think you will stay on this site?

Probably until I'm 18, when I lose my school laptop (I literally don't head onto DDO unless it's my school laptop)

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?

Making an AMA as my first post LOL

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Vaarka, only because I know him IRL. He's been on here a smaller amount of time and has done way more for the site than I ever could, lol.

Who or what would you die for?

Some of my family and friends, pick & choose ofc.

Who do you think would die for you?

Nobody.

How do you feel about your life so far?

I'm gifted academically, but I don't really apply myself. I've been trying to recently but I can't get around to it. I want to do something regarding the rising esports scene, but my grandparents (who take care of me because of reasons) don't really see the opportunity the way I do. As of now, I don't know what direction I'll take so I'm kinda worried, but I have lots of opportunities.

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

Given that I'd only be 6, no.

How do you feel about death?

It sucks.

What do you want to do before you die?

Skydiving. At least if the parachute fails, I have my whole life to fix it.

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?

Site: Vaarka's friend who introduced him to DDO, lol. Probably couldn't be remembered as anything more than that.

Life: IDK. I probably won't do anything entirely impactful to be remembered 100 years from my death. So I'm not worried about that.

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?

Shadow Mewtwo from Pokken Tournament.

Why is DDO so important to you?

There's tons of people here with different viewpoints. I'm able to debate others and even change their opinions.
How long do you think you will stay on this site?

Until I get tired of the site, in probably 3 years which will be when I graduate college. It depends on if I get in to get my Master's and if that's the case I'd be here more years.

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?
There's a few, my first year on DDO was just terrible. If I'd debate then like I do now, I'd have an ELO in the 4,000's.

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Who or what would you die for?

My faith.
Who do you think would die for you?

On DDO?
How do you feel about your life so far?

It's looking up.
If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

Assuming that I knew what I did now.

How do you feel about death?

Kinda scared about it for the after life.
What do you want to do before you die?

A family (husband/wife and kids).
How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?

A soft spoken, kind young man who did what he could to help others. He often shared his political beliefs in an attempt to educate others into either enforcing their own beliefs or

Because it gives me a good place to discuss topics that I have either found to be difficult to discuss civilly elsewhere, or found to be rarely discussed at all.
How long do you think you will stay on this site?


I'm not sure. I've already been on this site in excess of four years, and I'm still very interested in debating and talking to some of the people here, so I'll probably be here for at least a good bit longer.
What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?


There are a number of people I didn't talk to as much as I wanted that are gone now. I wish I had talked to them more.
On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?


16k and lannan13 helped me become a better debater; I've had a bunch of discussions with 16k in particular on conservatism and libertarianism. I talked with Microsuck (although he's had a bunch of different accounts, and that's not his current one) a lot about politics and religion; he influenced my libertarianism and encouraged me to be ever more skeptical of theism. I talk to n7 and BlueDreams a lot; both helped influence my philosophy as well. Phantom helped introduce me to progressive rock. I'm sure there are others as well.
Who or what would you die for?


I can't think of a single person I would die for. I'm uncertain if I'd ever die for a cause or ideal.
Who do you think would die for you?

Various members of my family probably.
How do you feel about your life so far?


Besides all the stresses that have populated the last four years of my life, I think I'm enjoying life pretty well. There have been several times where my anxiety made it such that any enjoyment was impossible, but those periods all passed.
If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?


Heck no, I'd be 8 then. I'd have no concept of anything in my current belief structure. I'd have no friends, on the internet or in real life. I'd dislike girls. I'd be scared of the dark. I'd be listening to alt rock behind my parents' backs through an extremely inefficient method. And there are still plenty of other things I'd also dislike about being 8.
How do you feel about death?


Honestly, it's a little terrifying. The mere thought of non-existence is scary.
What do you want to do before you die?


Travel to many places (on the top of my list is Germany, Russia (although not right now), Iceland, Switzerland, and New Zealand), read everything on my voluminous list of books to read, contribute something substantial to science, and come up with a coherent set of beliefs that is as complete as possible.
How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?


I don't particularly care about my legacy on this site. I haven't been active enough the last two years for me to have that much of a legacy anyway, and most of the people on here that know me the best are gone. As for real life, I don't know.
What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?

It's one of the album covers for Tool's album Lateralus.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Why is DDO so important to you?
I've made friends here, and friends are important to me.
How long do you think you will stay on this site?
I don't know. If I can manage to stay on here while in college without it consuming too much of my time, then I'll likely be here for a good long while.
What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?
Not expanding more beyond mafia.
On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?
Several, but I don't want to name names because I know I'll forget people.
Who or what would you die for?
Family, very close friends, beliefs.
Who do you think would die for you?
Same as above, minus beliefs.
How do you feel about your life so far?
Like I haven't accomplished enough.
If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?
No.
How do you feel about death?
I fear it, but I hope that by the time my death comes I will be able to face it with a degree of equanimity.
What do you want to do before you die?
Raise a family, learn and experience as much as I can about whatever I'm interested in, and become as good a violin player as I can.
How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?
As a kind, intelligent, and responsible person, a good mafia player/mod, a decent violinist, and a loyal friend.

Why is DDO so important to you?
I'm mainly here for mafia and entertainment

How long do you think you will stay on this site?
No idea

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?
Spending too much time on DDO instead of doing stuff like studying

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?
Valkrin for showing me DDO, and being one of my best friends irl

I'm enjoying my life

I'm not going to point out anyone individually in shout-outs, mainly because I find them rather unnecessary, and hell, you guys already ask for HO's, so why do you need to feel more special? :P

So, now that I had my say, Ask Me Anything, obviously. However, I want to ask you some questions as well (hence the AUA). Feel free to answer them below at your own discretion.

That's my 1,000th post, and I hope I'll get to write another in another month after a good number of Mafia games, election threads, flame wars, Personal forum rants, meme battles, and replying to the ever-many thoughtful and intellectual discussions in the Religion forum. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go do something productive.

Why is DDO so important to you?

How long do you think you will stay on this site?

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Who or what would you die for?

Who do you think would die for you?

How do you feel about your life so far?

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

How do you feel about death?

What do you want to do before you die?

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?

Honest opinion.

Why is DDO so important to you?
I'm mainly here for mafia and entertainment

How long do you think you will stay on this site?
No idea

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?
Spending too much time on DDO instead of doing stuff like studying

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?
Valkrin for showing me DDO, and being one of my best friends irl

Who or what would you die for?
A klondike bar

Who do you think would die for you?
My parents

How do you feel about your life so far?
I'm enjoying my life

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?
Hell no XD

How do you feel about death?
I don't dwell on it much, tbh

What do you want to do before you die?
Random things
Oh, and some day I want to participate with the top USA players in the osu world cup. I'm nowhere near their skill yet, but some day I want to be up there with them. I don't care much about people thinking "Hey it's Vaarka!" and then I get +200 spectators like Cookiezi. What I would like, however, is to be recognized as a top player who can place some record-breaking scores and maybe some unbeatable #1 ranks, but at the same time someone that most of the lower-ranked players can joke around with, as if I were still the 70k player who's trying way too hard to FC a 5 star that I am now.
Yeah, that'd be fun :3

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?
As the little Vaarka that could

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?
...

Honest Opinion

Would you rather only be able to drink milk, and it had to be straight from a cow's udder, or only eat food regurgitated from your mom like a baby bird?

Now I want to hear you answer these questions Ops.

Why is DDO so important to you?

You guys, obviously.

How long do you think you will stay on this site?

I don't know; I hope indefinitely, but I can't say that for sure.

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?

Cursing too much and being a prick sometimes. I think I'm abusing my no-filter privilege. Apologies if I pissed anyone off.

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Well, Saph and Vaarka first come to mind, but that's mainly because we had a good deal of conversations and hold some common interests. I like to think that many of you are my friends, but we haven't gotten to know each other very well on a personal level to be "close." Also, I'm still a noob, so you can't expect much, lol.

Who or what would you die for?

I would die for many people to save them, actually, but a close person I would never, ever die for is my father.

Who do you think would die for you?

I really, really don't want anyone dying for me. If they would, then I would much rather die for them.

How do you feel about your life so far?

Life hasn't been all that pleasant (and could be a real D-bag at times), and I made a lot of mistakes already. I'm starting to think that I made too many.

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

Unlike most of you, there are very few things that I wouldn't do to be able to do this.

How do you feel about death?

Well, what I am afraid of right now is the afterlife. So, I definitely do not want to die, but I'm not really afraid of death itself compared to what I believe that I may face afterwards.

What do you want to do before you die?

Make a YouTube channel, go surfing (big waves, mind you), skydiving, and freerunning, write a book, compose at least one piece of music (my school's IB Music requires it, so I got that covered), experience full-dive VR, and meet some members IRL.

How do you want to be remembered on this site if you leave, and in real life if you die?

I don't care too much; if I'm remembered as a bad person, then I'm probably deserving of it, and the same goes for the other way.

What is your profile picture supposed to be (yes, this is actually a non-serious question)?

I was browsing through pictures, and this one caught my eye because it fairly resembled me, except for the blue eyes. I want to draw my own picture over the summer, though.

Hasn't changed much. You're so friendly that you would give anyone a hug, and you're silly enough that most people would probably want to hug you, too.

You're still a fool.

I'm not asking you to be Vaarka (especially don't be a fool) and hug everyone, but it's a thought. I'm not quite sure what you do as a moderator, but you've been fairly helpful when I was confused about the site, so thank you for that. You're also a pretty good writer.

Also, you never asked me your wall of questions, lol.

Why is DDO so important to you?

It's losing its importance, but mainly because of the ability to discuss things openly.

How long do you think you will stay on this site?

A few years, maybe more. Not sure.

What are your regrets, if any, on DDO?

Wasting too much time.

On that note, are there any members here that are important and close to you?

Well, most of them have left or are no longer active. JMK, Taj, bball, Famous, etc.

Who or what would you die for?

Anyone who I care about that was in danger.

I doubt anyone on this site.

How do you feel about your life so far?

Good. :)

If you could rewind your life by 10 years, would you do so?

Nah.

It's serious.
