I am a fairly new member here and have stuck mainly to the fun and recreation section to lighten up from the more serious of life issues that we all surely endure at some point along the way.
I have no ignorant thoughts to share with you or anyone else
Fair enough, one just has to be cautious, particularly when it comes to typing online because you can't be sure who exactly is reading it and how they're interpreting it.
In my case, I don't actually get out much, but it's due to 'problems' that I have and it is a huge and depressing deal in my life that I'm trying to fix. So, when someone makes a comment about something I've done and how I need to get out more (I've had it on many occasions across different forums when making an effort to do something), it angers me, especially on those occasions when that thing I've done actually took a few minutes. It's an insult for me, personally. People who know me in the real world wouldn't make certain comments like that for obvious reasons, joke or otherwise.
But, hey, this game for example, the base is really just the following:
Each member has 100 health points. Those who wish to post simply add 10 health points to one member and take 20 from another.
It doesn't really take a long time to think of that (it would actually be sad if it did). My post is long as I wanted to give a strong example and to repeat myself to make sure those who wish to play along and pass time understood it.
So, that's about it really.
