2023.06.06 21:04 QuartzWallflower I was never actually special or anything different
I always found it a little bit patronising when they'd say "you're the only person I've ever responded to", even though I'd see them respond to other people and comment/compliment on their posts before we had started talking. But, they're the only person I'd ever sent face pic to online, and they're response, was "you have a lot of hair." That...sucked... and was the last time for that. they tried to walk it back with "they don't find people attractive by their looks"( except for those other people i guess lol) I'd share other pictures but they'd look at them once and never again or sometimes not at all. No surprise my bodys, nothing like the ones that they seeked out to compliment naturally. So I just stopped. I just wished so much that i was someone they found physically attractive. In the time we did shared things privately they heard my voice a bunch, and all I ever really got were the same old gifs that had posted a bunch before, without a peep from them in it lol. It's kind of funny when people say things because its what they think you want to hear, Why tell me the pictures they were messaging me was because they were so comfortable with me, when they were just the same sometimes year+ old pictures they'd posted for the world see plenty of times before, i must seem gullible. I guess it's my fault if I hadn't even gotten jealous we wouldn't have had to do this awkward charade where they'd tell me I'm the only person they were talking to or interacting with (even if i tld the it didn't have to be the case they'd insist), and I'd pretend to believe it, and try to convince myself they meant it because sometimes it feels nice to feel special even if it is just an illusion.

2023.06.06 20:51 Screaming_Goat42 How to turn Kick or keep into an god-tier show
I've been watching and really enjoying Kick or keep, but have noticed the multiple flaws that have occurred. Here are some suggestions I have:
Destiny and qorantos need to have a healthy balance of different types of guests. The way I see it, there are a few main types of guests:
- Aggressors (e.g. fossil, kazz, claw) these people start arguments and rip into each other, making people take part in extended discussions so it's not just a boring or passive qna show
- Jokers(e.g. Wes) these create the funny moments and allow the show to remain light hearted instead of becoming very toxic
- intellectuals (e.g. pxie) when it comes to political discourse these people contribute to the conversation and can make things a lot more interesting
- passives (people who are more reserved) balance out the strong personalities and prevent the show from becoming too chaotic
There should only ever be one or 2 aggresors, as otherwise the show gets too chaotic and impossible to handle
There should be at least a few passives
There should at least be a few jokers to keep the light hearted tone of the show
Destiny and qorantos should be better at engaging and moderating guests
They should curate the questions they ask towards the type of guests they have (e.g. they shouldn't ask non political ppl about immigration)
They should force the more quiet guests to talk and give their opinion on things (guests like Adrianah and Nev also shouldn't be allowed to play games or do other stuff in the background while the podcast is going on)
Allow the hosts to interact with the guests more, but not too much (keep each other in check)
They should let aggressors do their thing, but be more proactive in muting them when other people need to talk. Q should tell them to shut up, and mute them if they don't comply.
When destiny or qorantos ask someone a question, they should let people discuss it before moving on to asking the other ppl. Otherwise, it just becomes a qna show and there's no discourse.
In fact, they don't even need to ask questions person by person. They could just throw the question out there, see what people have to say and then put the spotlight on the ppl who haven't answered or spoken on the question, if there are ppl who haven't said anything during discussion.
They should only have one question per round, so that discussion must spiral naturally from there instead of being a qna session
Find a way to get Donos involved. Here are some ideas
Destiny can offer a few questions Donate to vote on what questions are asked
Donate a certain amount for text to speech
The winner gets the donation pool, while qorantos gets a cut
Here are some types of episodes and guests I would want to see personally:
An episode with high profile ppl like xqc, train, miz, speed and adin Ross (destiny could get this done with his connections). Maybe add smaller creators as well to balance things out or get their names out there. This would also be really great for publicity.
For example, they could get big streamers with their detractors (like react streamers and darkviper, or ppl from the loggers and W/L communities) so that they can discuss controversies
An episode with destiny's harem (farha, Amy, Lauren, mel, etc), and the winner gets one of the Friday streams. Add Darius as either a contestant or a guest host to make things more interesting
Individual streamers I would recommend:
AugieRFC- a small drama streamer who's PERFECT for this type of show. He's really high energy and knows how to insult people, as well as being a decently smart guy who can have interesting discussions.
Pokémonchallenges (pokemon nuzlocke streamer) - I just like him
DarkviperAU - he could discuss react content with other streamers
Sitch and adam
Those are my thoughts, but what do you guys think?
(Also I wasn't around during the rajjroyale days so I don't know what they were like in comparison.)

2023.06.06 20:39 nutjobally Totally confused about disappearing sub/potential relationship… has anyone else has something similar to this happen?
Hey ladies (and dudes if applicable) So I’ve had the strangest few days and I’m very confused and to be honest a little hurt.
I met this guy who was like a total dream… to the point I actually thought he was one of my old subs who was butthurt and using what he knew about me to lure me in and trick me… Anyway- he wasn’t he was 100% who he said he was… he was handsome and intelligent, funny, sweet, totally on my wavelength. And generally I am totally ACE with my subs but with him… I mean… I know this will sound crazy but I could actually see a relationship with him… like marriage, kids- the lot. He was American and we’d have to have figured that out… but both of us were on the exact same page and honestly my heart was fluttering (as well as other places 😂😂😍)
So my schedules are crazy anyway- um a single mum who works from home, I have subs in the USA in multiple time zones and one in Australia & only one (and a few guys I get sends from and converse with but I don’t own them per say) in the UK…
So the other night I spent the whole night awake speaking to this guy (let’s call him P for perfection) and both of us are just blown away by how much we have in common and how strong and instant our connection was.
So we had a voice call and he sent me a verification offering (£80 which is $100 USD initially and then £200 which is $250 USD) due to his circumstances being different to usual (I didn’t mention that this guy actually earns a LOT of money… but that wasn’t anywhere near the best thing about him - just a massive surprise bonus after my heart and lady garden were already fluttering.
So this is where I fucked up…
I was due to speak to him properly the following night but I had a call from my friend who was in floods of tears, locked out of her home like 2 hours bus ride, 25-30 minute taxi/drive away from my home. She had moved to my county from another area wayyyyy up north about a year ago to be with her partner as she was pregnant… and so just doesn’t have that many people in her support network yet… but she will when she starts socialising because she’s an awesome human 😎🥰 So I actually ask him if he’ll send me money for a taxi so that I can get there and back quickly as possible so we can have our chat… it would have been around £35 each way and I couldn’t justify spending that and I wasn’t about to ask my crying friend to cough up the taxi money (she had just found out that her partner had been unfaithful and was on her way home to speak to him after telling him she knew on the phone- but when she got there- rather than sticking around and trying to make it up to her- he basically just packed a bag and fucked off with their car and left her with no house keys or way to get in with their 5 month old baby) so obviously to P - the probably sounds like a load of shite - I hadn’t yet told him about my own situation which is this-
Generally I am well off, I don’t need anything from anyone- I usually have savings of around £5000 Minimum that’s accessible and I have a home and a car. This last few years have been difficult- I had a family member I was caring for in the final months of her life until she passed and so obviously had to reduce my hours to work, I also had a partner who I had no idea was just casually using my credit cards until I started to get calls, texts and emails about my minimum payments being ridiculous…
My savings disappeared and I was earning less than usual, my subs are very helpful but aren’t in a position to fix the damage that my ex did (most of them I haven’t even told as I don’t want to dump my shit on them- I was stupid trusting a guy who I cared about and it’s not their problem to fix…
So anyway I used the money P sent me to pay towards 3 of the 6 maxed out credit cards that I have and I get paid on Friday - I didn’t have £70-80 to pay for a round trip in a taxi and I missed our call…
So the next day we arranged a call 9pm my time- but when I got back from being out, I fell asleep in bed with my little boy watching a movie and missed the call again….
I got up, took my son to school and went to work - I had meetings today so had to go out. I messaged him at 3pm ish my time byob Snapchat today saying I fell asleep and could we speak today? When I checked back around an hour or two later - he had just totally disappeared 👻 deleted Snapchat- deleted Reddit- I tried to send him £1 on cashapp just asking him to come back… and it said ‘your payment cannot be sent’
I feel totally jilted and a sub had never made me feel like this before…
He clearly thought that i was taking the piss out of him and that I was just not going to keep my word… but these thing’s genuinely happened and with the time difference too and both of us working it wasn’t easy…
I have no idea why he wouldn’t have sent me a message saying how he felt or given me an opportunity to explain…
Has anyone else experienced something like this? I’ve never really been ‘dumped’ or ghosted by a sub… and I’ve not actually ever met a sub who I was developing romantic feelings towards… my heart hurts a bit 💔😞 I don’t know if he’s going to come back or if this is just over… advice and support welcomed… if you haven’t got anything nice or supportive to say then please don’t comment… I’m hurt so #bekind.
Hope you are all having a lovely day (well, I hope you are all having the day you deserve 😍🥰😘 I’m not 😞 but im hoping you ladies & gents might cheer me up a bit ☺️❤️🔥)
Edit: he appears to have done something to my cashapp also 😕 I don’t understand why he would do this to me without any explanation… I actually feel like crying. I’m trusted and respected here on Reddit- I coach dommes and subs- and i connect people who are compatible- I give subs to other dommes who are better suited to them than I am… I am honest, kind, compassionate and ethical… I created a community to try and change the bad rep that Findommes have and to share my values with others. I’m just totally confused- he seems to actually be angry with me and maybe even thinks I’m a scammer? I’m really heartbroken that this wonderful man thinks badly of me. It was genuine issues that came up and I so desperately wanted to chat with him… I’m waiting for cashapp to get back to me about why I can’t cash out and why my limits have changed so I might be able to find out a little about what he was thinking…

2023.06.06 18:47 Active-Internal5039 If my (f24) bf (m27) doesnt want to end things but is also unwilling to compromise, then what?
I have been together with my bf for over a year and a half now. The start of our reltionship was unconventional just like most relationships that start off a dating/hook up app are. My bf at the time was recently seperated from his wife of almost 5 years for 3 months when I met him and I was still dealing with the truama and heartbreak of my first relationship 8 months prior.
When we went on our first date i think we both realized we got along really well and really liked eachother but we agreed in the beginning that we both werent looking for anything serious... until i started seeing him multiple times a week and started spending the night everytime we hung out. A few months later I had ended up getting really sick and quarantined myself for 2 weeks, and in those 2 weeks we were playing games online together every night, he would message me he missed me, he told me one night during those 2 weeks that i was 'his person'. So obviously from that point the dynamic of our relationship had shifted and things that hadnt bothered me before now started to.
One big thing is that my bf likes to go out every weekend with his friends, he really didnt have friends when him and his ex had moved to the area and once they seperated, he started going out and making friends and then it became his ritual every weekend. I didnt care about that, he deserves to have fun and at that time it wasnt really my scene anyway. Until i saw how much fun he and his friends would have and the cool experiences he would go to. Night art festivals with fire breathing dancers. Nightime pool dj parties. Clubs with cool themes and concepts. Silent discos. I started to get that fear that i was missing out on my life too. I started to want to be involved but when i brought up the idea of inviting me out some nights he got uncomfortable at the idea. He likes when we're together but he also needed a life outside me too so he didnt feel like he was jumping out of one relationship into the other. He needed to feel free and bringing me with would be an acknowledgement of commitment and he wasnt ready for that yet. Since this was ealier on in the relationship (probably 4 months in) and i wanted to be respectful of his life i let it go and started trying to go out by myself to find friends of my own and start having my own experiences but people are fucking crazy ngl. Some attempts i made to make friends resulted in funny stories to tell other people but also had discouraged me to keep trying. So i conceded and just went back to what i was doing before but the jealousy slowly built over the course of our time together.
I know everyones healing processes are different byt after a year of being consistently together i decided maybe i could bring up the idea again but as a comprimise and I had texted him this: "I love you so much. Youre so patient and caring and its really helped me feel more comfortable with my emotions and expressing them to you. I feel safe to talk.
I also want to preface that Im perfectly fine with you going out every weekend you going out doesnt bother me at all. I dont want you to think i dont like it cause i really dont mind.
what does cause me to be sad is that some nights when you go out it just looks and sounds like a lot of fun. It sometimes hurts my feelings when you guys will make plans right in front of me and i know im not invited too
Im def not the kind of person that goes out every weekend and I like that you have your time for just you and friends, its perfectly healthy to have seperate lives!! But being able to party and be loose with you sounds like fun some nights. I just feel sad and left out and that im not a fun friend to let your guard down around.
Is there some way we can compromise where you still have your freedom but every once in a while i can come with you guys on a friday night?"
This was my first true attempt at a comprimise but he still has the same reservations he had the first time.
So again i conceded, but this time the anger and jealousy were now constantly there. I would get hurt everytime i saw clothes that he would wear on weekends. I would get upset when i saw his friends. I would get uspet when he would start to get excited that the weekend was getting close knowing i was just an outsider looking in.
Another 4 months had gone from that point and we finally had our first big blowout. Not over the weekends or anything else but over something really small and it wasnt a huge fight either but it was enough for us to realize that i wasnt okay and neither was he. I took a couple of weeks to be by myself and when we came together we had a really big talk over everything. I told him that I wasnt interested in being an addition anymore. If he wanted his seperate friends and places, thats fine, but would it hurt if just some night it could be just us? Going to new places? That way i can get to go out with him like ive been wanting and he wont feel like im trying to insert myself into all aspects of his life. He kind of disagreed again but for different reasons. He said due to my truama with my ex hed feel like we wouldnt have fun going out because id be too busy watching him to make sure hes not checking out other women to have a good time.
I said "well are you the type of person that would openly disrespect me like that in front of my face and give me a reason to behave like that?"
He said "no"
So i said "then its not fair for me to be penalized for something i havent done yet. Why cant i have the opportunity to show you that I wouldnt do that and also gain the opportunity for you to show me that you wouldnt to that either?"
I could tell he still wanted to say no so i finished my piece by just telling him to think about it. If he couldnt give me a better reason to say no then there was no reason for us to not go with the plan.
That was 2 months ago. He ended up never bringing up an 'answer', i knew it was going to be no in the end so i just gave up.
I decided to get a 2nd job on the weekends to make some extra money and to help pass the feelings of loneliness. Its helped because my new coworkers are so nice and working nights with them fulfills the social need ive been searching for. My bf started taking a medication too that he'll be on for 6 months and during that time he cant have a drop of alcohol or else it could really mess up his liver so he stopped going out on weekends too but the pain of it all still sits heavy on my mind. Hes my best friend but i feel like im being treated less than a friend. I love him so much and i know every relationships have their ups and downs and theyre 80% and 20% but i feel like the 20% im missing out is too much. Im really starting to want a more conventional relationship with him after being together for so long and i guess that our biggest issue
He also has an affinity for saying since he wasnt looking for anything when we first met he doesnt want to have any power over me to hurt me. I get where hes coming from with this, but at this point when he says it, hes using it as a scapegoat to absolve himself of guilt for when he does things that inevitably hurt me. In the beginning I understood what he was saying depsite thinking it was a little unfair because at that point I didnt want to let him have anypower over me too, but that was a year and a half ago, that statement.
The reason I need help and advice is because of this most recent text from us here:
He said "I know you wanted to hang out today but I think you should take time to think about how we should go about things because we just keep kicking the can down the road. It's like "oh hey I want this. But I know you don't want this. Yeah. Okay anyways I'll see you tomorrow" and I get not wanting to switch things up but it's not gonna make either of us happy in the long run"
So i replied "Tbh i have thought about it and continue to think about it. I know what i want and i think im more just coming to terms with understanding and realizing what i want i might never get or probably wont see for a long time. I just dont know what the best course of action is because comproming on my end has been hurting me a lot. But i dont know what or if youre willing to compromise anything. I think its hard coming to terms wth what it means to actsully be incompatible. I just dont know how to feel everytime you tell me i need to take time to think about things."
So he said "Well. It's not that I think you need time to think about things. It's that we can't just keep kicking the can down the road"
And i left it at thag because I just dont know what to do. If i bring up ending things he tells we both dont want that, and yeah, i love the guy, we've talked about when we're both ready having a family and a house together. He even brought up the idea of matching tatoos of a character for the video game we played together from when i was sick and he told me i was his person, and that coming from him felt so sincere and significant because thats a big commitment right there in my opinion. Of course i dont want to end things but if hes unwilling to compromise then what? I know im partially in the wrong because this is soemthing hes wanted to keep seperate from the beginning but for me being able to go out with your partner helps build emotional connections and experiences I feel like.
I dont know. Since this is my 2nd relationship and the only relationship ive been in since being of age to drink and really go out I feel like its important to me to have those experiences with him.
Please help reddit. Im sorry if this was so rambly and long. This is my first time posting and i know there are a lot of sincere and genuine people who want to help.
Tldr; after being together for a year and a half im starting to want a more conventional relationship. Ive suggested comprimises to help with our situation but he wants things to remain as they are and in the end its hurting us both. When i bring up ending things he just syas that isnt what either of us want. But if he doesnt want to break up and he doesnt want to compromise, then what?

2023.06.06 16:34 jorgerr96 Spanish GP Review + F1 Experiences Trophy Experience and Review
Hiya, just got back from Spain last night, and now here to write my review of my experience at the Spanish GP. Gonna try to divide in sections in case you are looking for something in specific:
-Travel to and from the Circuit: I stayed in Barcelona near a station with the R2 route. Each way was about 2.4 euros I believe, but when asked at the cashier she told me I was better off buying the Abono that lasts up until end of August for 10 euros, so I got that and that's how I traveled to Montmelo station, it also takes you to the airport if you are traveling so you don't pay the 16 euro of the shuttle bus like I did when I got there lol. From Montmelo to Gate 3-4 you will walk 35-40 minutes, but you will see a lot of people and will not feel unsafe at any time of the day. I left early every day (before 9 am) and the train was not busy, however on Sunday, the only day I left at 5 (post race), the line stretched long and it was hot so I decided to just stay in Montmelo and eat, I got to the train after 7:40 PM as the line was now non existent.
-Race grounds: Personally, I felt the place was small (compared to Silverstone and COTA) but its an F1 track, it's still huge and will beat your legs after walking for 3 days. The fan zone is by the Main Grandstand and was smaller than the one at COTA and USGP, and also felt very packed in there during the driver talks. They said water stations would be available so I was expecting water booths like the ones you see at festivals with 15+ available rows, but it was literally just a single water station that only takes a bottle each time like the ones at an airport, which was pretty funny to see because of how huge F1 is. This is something the track needs to work on imo.
-Food: I was actually surprised at how slim the selection was. Their food truck row had 3 food trucks. Food was near the same every section, hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, and maybe 2 or 3 "specialty" vendors but the food section IMO was lacking big big time.
-Spotting the F1 drivers: Now here's something that is very important for me lol. I go to concerts, film fests, so trying to get close to artists to get sigs is something I enjoy. At F1 is very hard nowadays because the fan zone stage is just a 10 min talk and not an autograph signing session anymore. For Barcelona, the parking for the drivers is past a gated area so you can see them drive in but none of them will stop, only few drivers I saw roll down was Sainz, Leclerc, Ocon, and I did see Checo take a selfie with a fan, but it is not guaranteed and sincerely it's dangerous because you see crowds stopping their cars lol.
-F2 and F3: Now here's why I try to go to EU once a year. I enjoy F2/F3 more than F1 nowadays, so this was my main plate. On Friday I found out the drivers park outside and then walk or shuttle to their paddock. I asked twice here if it was possible to meet them that way but was told they drive in to the paddock like the F1 people so I didn't print anything to get signed :/. They are all very happy to take a pic and sign. It was funny I would stop to talk to some of these drivers, others would see me and ask a pic and then they would ask me who they were lol. It was INSANE to me how there would be 40-50 people on the other side of the street waiting to see the F1 drivers ignore them as they drive by and completely ignore drivers like Ollie Bearman and Sophia Floersch who would walk in front of them to get to the entrance lol.
-F1 Experiences: This is my second F1 Experiences purchase. I did a Hero package last year at Silverstone, and absolutely loved it. However, F1 Experiences do have several areas they need to raise their game.
For Spain, I had the Trophy package, which is the same as the Hero but your 3-day pass will be on a different grandstand. You get a pitlane, a ride on the flatbed trucks around the circuit, photos with the trophies and an event, typically called Live on the Grid or Inside F1. So for the pitlane, this was early, at like 3:30 PM, so unlike Silverstone where it was at like 6 PM, we actually saw all the garages open and the teams doing work/training. The flatbed truck is fun because you just get to go around the track and learn about it from an expert.
Now, what areas do they need to raise their game at?
(1) Inside F1. This was nowhere near as good as live on the grid. This took place at the Champions Club and there were so many of us it was so hard to move around. For this event, there are no cars, no sims, nothing, you just see the invited guests go and do an interview and then they proceed to leave. Live on the Grid is 1000x times better.
F1 Experiences staff is top game when it comes to their attention to customers and hospitality. However, the areas where they need to improve are all involving delivery of the package. It takes them AGES to ship these, and when a lot of us travel from out of country or continent to these races, getting these badged shipped just 10 days (sometimes they are even slower) before the thursday event is insane. I buy VIP packages for concerts very often from VIP Nation, CID, Future Beat, and none of them ship stuff so late. Not only that, but when you choose to pick up on-site, don't expect it to be at the track like with festivals or concerts, F1 Experiences are always in some remote location far away from the track. At Silverstone they were in a place like 50 minute walk away from the entrance to the track, so not only you had to get a taxi to go there, but also a taxi to get to the track, and at Silverstone where there is no Uber, it was hard to do so. For Spain, they were at a hotel nearby where no buses or trains can drop you off, so you had to get a taxi from the train station (20 euro) and then a taxi from their hotel to the track (25 euro). IF you are in luck, you will meet fans at the hotel lobby down to split the taxi (which I did), but in this day and age, where F1 Experiences only have to ship a simple lanyard which they probably print in batches at the beginning of the year, it is insane how bad they are with delivering it. Everything else? A+, but because of how inconvenient this was I would give them just 4 stars. I talked to other people and they all felt the same way as I did.
If there is anything you need to know please comment. i had to write this quick as I am at work lol.

2023.06.06 11:13 Zyxwgh Final thoughts of a former Silph Road Scientist and former Pokémon Go player, 2 months after stopping playing
This is a copy of a post I made on TheSilphRoad (where it was moderated away for reasons I don't understand yet) and on pogoraids.
Dear Silph Road and PoGoRaids communities, dear Pokémon Go community,
Many of you know me directly or indirectly as the (now retired) Silph Road Scientist who used to publish raid attacker spreadsheets
, actually even as "prestiger" spreadsheets even before raids existed
, who predicted forced nest migrations
, or as the co-discoverer (together with u/DrThod_PokemonGo
) of the egg rarity tiers
, or just as the guy who tried fun and funny raid challenges
with teams of small unevolved Pokémon
, already before raids were even a thing
I started playing in July 2016 and I played almost every single day between November 2016 and March 2023.
My passion for statistics / quantitative analysis + geo-located stuff had me hooked, and the challenge of achieving different goals kept me in the game despite the frequent bugs and the lack of communication from Niantic's side.
I decided to stop playing cold turkey when Niantic announced the price increase for remote raid passes, but that was just the final nail in the
Koffing in a season full of frustrations, which in turn were only the tip of the iceberg above a huge chunk of unsolved issues.
What promped me to quit the game for good
1) The first frustration was when Master Premier Classic was removed. Master Premier Classic was my best GBL league, I had a well-balanced team (Togekiss - Snorlax - Swampert) that I knew very well and brought me twice to Veteran. Now, to be equally competitive in Master Premier XL, I needed hundreds of XL candies for my team, which were basically locked behind events and trading. That is, easy for people flexible enough to play when Niantic wants, and easy for multiaccounters, but hard for legit players with work and family obligations like me.
2) Then in March I felt for the umpteenth time the rush to remove Frustration exactly in that week because it's just one week (or less) every three months, and not even with a fixed calendar.
3) Meanwhile I was hovering in the 2000s in GBL, without much hope to achieve Veteran any time soon, and still being forced to tank and go back up to get Rare Candies (because a 1-4 followed by a 4-1 gives 3 Rare Candies while two 3-2 sets give 0 Rare Candies).
4) I also realized that the "Go Battle League Pass" locked Elite TMs behind 900-950 battles per quarter, which amount to 20 monthly hours of GBL. At a $15 hourly salary that corresponds to $300 per month i.e. $3600 per year. Not sure if everyone realizes how much time/money it is.
5) At the end of March, the "Bronzor Cup" obviously added to the frustration level.
6) So the remote raiding kill (which not only meant I would have a hard time competing for the pokeraids
Phantom Drafts, but also meant that walking to a gym locally, finding no one, and asking for remote help on Discord wouldn't be a possibility anymore) was just the cherry on top.
But these are just the final hits that made me realize there are many more unsolved issues in the game.
What really needs to be fixed
1) The biggest problem of all: This game more and more feels like a series of chores
. Gift sending/opening, buddy hearts, Frustration/CDs/events that force you to do something specific at set dates/times... All these things make the game an obligation to play during certain times, and no longer a game that can be played on one's own terms and schedule.
2) Related but slightly different: Rarity goes from "impossible" to "too much of it" AND BACK in a matter of days
. I'd spend months chasing a rare Pokémon (e.g. Togetic), only for there to be a 3-hour window where I'd get plenty of it. But if in those 3 hours my daughter's school organizes an event, I may miss 90% of that exclusive time window and go back to "impossible" rarity at the end of the event. It also made any buddy walking or egg hatching or spawn chasing feel useless, because the game now is mostly "play in the scheduled obligation time to get what you need".
3) Being force-fed event after events also deprives players of the time to explore "natural" spawns
(which are bad anyway) or nests
(which nobody reports anymore because it's pointless on many levels).
4) It's very hard to coordinate with other players.
For years we had to just be lucky and bump into other players by chance, and then try to find the right third-party app for that particular community (Telegram, WhatsApp, Discord...). Campfire is too little, too late, and not available for everyone yet.
5) Most game incentives cater to rule violators
(mostly spoofers, multiaccounters and account sharers). Raids must be in person? "We'll fly to it." Guaranteed XL from trades? "I don't need your help, I just do 100 daily trades with my baby account." Regional exclusives? "My sister is in New Zealand, if you want I can ask her to catch a Relicanth for you." Especially multiaccounters get a lot of the good stuff: a second account, even without significant work put into it, adds firepower to raids, especially with the Mega attack bonus, it is a better Pokémon transfer "sink" than Professor Willow, who almost never gives XL candy, while "trades" with the alt account are often guaranteed, and a second account of a different team can conveniently take out the demotivated gym placeholders for 50 guaranteed coins a day. I literally emigrated away from a country that implicitly tolerates rule violators. I'm now leaving a game that implicitly tolerates rule violators.
6) Raids have been broken since freaking 2017 and no fix is in sight
. I'm referring to the extremely annoying bugs called phantom hits
and boss health regeneration
7) RNG is everywhere
. Spawns are random, eggs are random, IVs are random, the number of XL candies is random, GBL encounters are random, raid bosses appear randomly, nests rotate randomly, raid rewards are random, quests are random, and so on and so on. Yes, that's what keeps players trying for more, and yes, in the long term many things even out, but it's still quite frustrating.
8) Many ways of wasting raid passes
. People backing out at the last moment because there is no in-game communication channel (and because the number of needed trainers and the actual attacker effectiveness are being kept obscure by Niantic), inability to re-enter when the raid has expired, and the already mentioned raid bugs make raiding sometimes just a waste of time and raid passes.
9) The GBL reward structure incentivizes tanking
. Giving rewards on the basis of how many matches have been won within a set
instead of overall, coupled with matchmaking based instead on Elo and therefore (roughly) on overall
match wins, pushes players to lose matches on purpose in order to win more when their Elo is artificially lower but rewards are higher because of Go Battle Days or just 4-1 being just so much better than 3-2, given the poor average quality of encounters.
10) Communication sucks
. It's June 2023 and there is still no way a new player can figure out that at the end of each GBL season the star piece has to be activated before clicking on Battle
. And the same goes for a lot of in-game mechanics that can only be figured out by reading a lot of posts here or by trial and error. In addition, often the official blog and even Niantic support give wrong information.
This above was enough to make me quit. But we also have some minor problems that would be nice to be solved because they are additional nuisances:
1) The gym system is stupid
. Instead of being competitive (actual battles for gym control among the three teams, with appropriate rewards) or cooperative (before the 2017 gym "reform", players from the same team could "power up" a gym by "training" in a raid-like way), it is just a race to who gets the first 6 spots in an empty gym without any effort (or with variable effort only by the first player) and then hoping that someone from the opposing team kicks out your "defender" after more than 8 hours but possibly every day, but not from all gyms but only one gym a day. Or just multiaccounting (ToS violation) and do it all yourself.
2) Too much focus on Saturdays and Sundays
. For me it's a major problem, but I can understand the reason. However I'm around more often Monday to Friday than on weekends, so it's annoying that CDs, raid days and special research events (which are by the way the shortest and the ones that shouldn't be missed) fall on days when I'm not so flexible.
3) Too many pointless time sinks
. Pointless animations when fighting gyms, pointless 120-second lobby when soloing a low-tier raid, pointless animations for buddy feeding, pointless need for AR when AR is not functional to the game, pointless Rocket rewards screens, etc.
I hope that someone at Niantic reads half of what I've written, knowing that they have lost one of the (many, but few in percentage) people who have contributed to the growth of the awesome community around this game, and knowing that, if the game is kept in this "alpha-version" state, many other players will leave and move on to something less frustrating and more enjoyable.
I'm thankful to the Silph Road Team (moderators, scientists, researchers, and everyone else) and to the PoGoRaids Team (moderators, draft leaders, and everyone else) and to both TheSilphRoad
communities because they have made this not-so-short phase of my playing life more enjoyable despite Niantic. List of my most significant posts, i.e. my legacy, for those interested:

2023.06.06 09:21 Southern-Soulshine Beaufort Chalkboard’s run comes to end: Cindy ‘CJ’ Lamprecht faces allegations from donors, nonprofits, state of SC
Beaufort Chalkboard’s run comes to end: Cindy ‘CJ’ Lamprecht faces allegations from donors, nonprofits, state of SC
By Delayna Earley and Mike McCombs via The Island News June 3, 2023 This article is rather long, so I’m only going to post a snippet that tells a bit of history behind the Beaufort Chalkboard Lady (FYI her husband is, as of now, believed innocent) and Sandy Smith‘s Interview. If you want a wild ride, I strongly suggest reading the entire article!
. . .
In just more than three years in Beaufort, Cindy “CJ” Lamprecht built a castle out of feel-good stories and charity generated by warm messages on a chalkboard in her front yard. On Friday night, June 2, that castle came crashing to the ground.
The subject of a cover story for Beaufort Lifestyle Magazine for the month of May, reaching the pinnacle of what passes for royalty here, Lamprecht deactivated her Facebook pages for The Beaufort Chalkboard and left home just two days into the month of June amid a web of allegations of lies, theft, and fraud.
“She’s in the wind,” Tom Lamprecht, Cindy’ husband, said late Friday night.
Lamprecht, known to the community as The Beaufort Chalkboard Lady, gained prominence due to her chalkboard messages on her front lawn during the COVID-19 lock-down.
But recently, allegations began to surface from members of the community that Lamprecht and the Beaufort Chalkboard’s message were not what they were drawn up to be.
Lamprecht moved to the Beaufort area in 2019 with her husband Tom, and they initially erected the large chalkboard in the front yard of their rental home on Parris Island Gateway in March 2020 to thank first responders and essential workers, according to media reports.
Since then, she has been writing funny or inspirational messages on the board and sharing photos of the chalkboard on her Instagram and Facebook accounts…
It did not take long before Lamprecht was a well-known figure in Beaufort because of her chalkboard, but about 18 months after they first put it up, she became viral after several celebrities, such as Katie Couric, Jennifer Garner and Mariska Hargitay, began sharing her social media posts…
Taking advantage of her reach on social media, Lamprecht began to make posts asking people to donate goods or money to various causes she was claiming to support. She would include her Venmo, Cash App, Zelle and PayPal information as ways for people to send money.
. . . ”She’s got to be exposed”
More recently, in March 2023, Lamprecht solicited donations on her social media for Sandy Smith of Hampton, S.C., to aid in the exhumation of her son Stephen Smith’s body.
Stephen Smith was a 19-year-old who was found dead on Sandy Run Road in Hampton, S.C. on June 8, 2015, and eight years later authorities re-opened his case in June 2021 and are investigating it as a homicide.
His case was reopened following the murders of Paul and Maggie Murdaugh, for which the patriarch of the family, Alex Murdaugh, was found guilty on March 2, 2023.
Alex’s oldest son Buster has been mentioned in connection to Smith in 2015 case files first unearthed by FITSnews, but Buster has since spoke out against the speculation that he was involved with Smith’s death. Buster has never been named as a suspect or charged with a crime and the investigation into Smith’s death is ongoing.
Screenshots of conversations with Lamprecht that were sent to The Island News, show that she claims to have met with Smith for coffee and had a Zoom meeting with Smith and Mandy Matney, host of the podcast Murdaugh Murders. They allegedly discussed ways to raise money for the exhumation, such as Smith forming a Go Fund Me page.
Additionally, Lamprecht claims to have delivered $900 in donations that she collected directly to Smith three days after meeting with her for coffee.
Not only did Smith say that she has not received any donations from Beaufort Chalkboard, but she has never had any face-to-face contact with Lamprecht outside of a brief meeting at the ceremony for the unveiling of her son’s headstone.
“She did send me a message through messenger and said that a lot of people had wanted to help with Stephen’s exhumation and that she was going to get the money together and that she would pay me,” Smith said. “But then I’ve never heard anything about it.”
Smith said that she does know that her aunt who lives in Alabama did donate through Beaufort Chalkboard because she was hoping to donate before the Go Fund Me page collecting money for the exhumation had been created.
Lamprecht responded to the claim about Smith by saying that she actually donated the money to Smith through her Go Fund Me Page as anonymous and the amount that she donated was actually $600, but there are no anonymous donations for that amount of money and she has not responded to requests for receipts from her donation to the page.
“If she’s doing wrong, she’s got to be exposed,” Smith said.
So, the question then is, what has happened to all the money that Lamprecht has allegedly raised?

2023.06.06 08:18 Ok-Razzmatazz246 Knock In The Night
It is incredibly hot where I live during the summer. No one leaves the air-conditioned paradise that is their home unless they absolutely have to. Watching the news one night the weatherman speaking in his usual drone informed us that there was a heat wave incoming and that it would be even hotter than it normally is over the weekend. "Oh hell no," my husband says to me, clearly irritated. "Well, why don't we go to my grandpa's cabin Friday night to avoid it?" I replied. He definitely liked the idea. My grandfather gave us his permission to go up there for the weekend, just asking that we do a few things to help him keep it cleaned up and do some fire hazard reduction for him. We agreed, looking forward to a weekend alone and out of the heat. Thursday evening we pick up the keys from him and pack up our truck to leave early in the morning. Friday morning we're headed up there and stop in a small town at the base of the mountain to get some gas and snacks. We're standing outside the truck, eating push pops, waiting for the gas to pump when my husband smiles at me wryly. "Don't you dare." I say, knowing full well what is about to come out of his mouth. He starts chuckling between licks of his push pop and whispers in my ear, "SLENDERMAN. HAHAHA. SLEEEEENDY IS WAITING FOR YOU UP THERE." " You're hilarious," I reply sarcastically. If only. We reach the cabin and get the lights and water going. Take our bags and the groceries in. It's a little chilly, so I decide to grab some firewood from the back while he finishes unloading the truck. I stop abruptly at the side of the house, as I notice some scratch marks. Long, thin, and going along the side like someone was dragging a rake almost while walking along. Those weren't there last time I was here, but it had been a very long time since I had been there, so I shook my head and continued on to the back to grab a few logs. The rest of the day goes by without incident. We go fishing, ride the ATVs, make some s'mores. We're sitting comfortably, cuddling on the sofa, flipping through channels on whatever the rabbit ears on the TV will pick up when we hear scratching and knocking along the side of the house. My husband must have felt me tense up because he immediately says, "It's probably rats." I look at him and say, "Are you fucking kidding me? Rats? No way." The sound suddenly stops and doesn't start up again, so after an hour or so we go to bed. The next morning I go outside to grab more firewood. Curiosity gets the better of me and I decide to go look on the side of the cabin where I heard the banging and what I see immediately makes me want to puke. Sure, the sound was rats. Being nailed. To the wall. There are half-eaten rat carcasses all over the wall, surrounded by those same scratch marks that I had seen the day before. That was enough for me. I start yelling for my husband to show him. "Woaah, that's messed up," he says when I show him. "I want to leave. Like, today. I don't want to stay another night." He makes another joke about Slenderman and tells me we'll be fine. "If it makes you feel safer, we'll shut all the window and door coverings." The cabin had these big wooden doors and window coverings that lock to prevent anyone from breaking in while no one is there. I agree to this and say we'll stay another night. Just before dusk, we lock everything up and barricade the front door, mostly because I demanded it so I could sleep easily. Just as the night before, as we're sitting down watching television I hear the dragging, scratching, and knocking. I sit there petrified. My husband yells, "Stop it! Whoever you are you aren't funny!" Just as he says that the knocking intensifies and we hear a deep growling through the cracks in the wood, puffs of breath say in a crackling inhuman voice, "Come....out....to play...with....me..." I run up the stairs faster than I have ever run in my entire life, heart thundering heard against my chest, barely able to breathe. I hide under the covers. What the heck that's going to do I don't know, but it brings me an inkling of comfort. I sit there cursing my husband for not leaving when we had the chance. Whatever is out there laughs in that horrible voice for hours. Knocking and knocking all over the house, claws scratching the walls. Rattling the doors and window covering trying so hard to get them open. Eventually it stops and we fall into an uneasy sleep. That morning we pack up our shit in a hurry and get into the truck. The house is covered in torn-in-half animals. Raccoons, squirrels, foxes, there's even half a DEER on the deck. We throw all of our shit into the truck and just before we leave, I remember that my grandpa keeps motion capture cameras on the trees surrounding the house because he likes the pictures of the wild life. I grab them and flip through them as we're driving off, happy to be getting the heck out of there. The pictures are nice enough. Some deer, a few blue jays, which makes me smile because they're his favorite. Just as I finally start to relax and breathe easy, I start to see pictures of the animals being nailed to the cabin. The next picture has me shaking so hard I'm about to drop the camera. Written in blood on the side of the cabin where I had originally seen the scratches are the words, "Good bye. Thanks for playing." The final picture is what makes me scream. The first thing I notice is the yellow cat slit eyes, glaring into the camera. The miniscule, pin prick teeth covered in fur and blood and all manner of viscera. It's hunched over, its spine in an arch, waving at the camera. Furry stick like legs ending in cloven hooves with the torso of a man. Its emaciated and gangly thin. It's clearly laughing at us and the fun it's having. I drop the camera, willing the image out of my mind and look out the window, just in time to see it waving at me as we drive out of the woods.

2023.06.06 07:57 Basicallyacrow7 Timeline story + advice/hope
Hey everyone, Apologies for the long read, I am on day 13 of symptoms, so almost two weeks. And everyone’s posts of recovery and what they did to aid that helped me so much, I wanted to add my own for those just being diagnosed and looking for help, hope and support. This illness is scary, painful, and exhausting. It is genuinely, by far, the worst thing I have ever been through. This isn’t going to be true for everyone, as this illness affects us all differently, but I wanted to share.
May 24th, I noticed my throat felt funny. I looked at my throat with my phone flashlight in the mirror and noticed my tonsils were a bit swollen, wasn’t concerned, I had just traveled to PA from Fl for a wedding, was having allergy issues all week, figured it was from that.
Went to work the next day, was completely fine, tonsils still bugging me but didn’t check them again until I was home. Vastly more swollen, plus some white on them now, slightly concerned at this point. But strep had just gone through my office at work.
I had Friday off, assuming it was strep, went into urgent care to get antibiotics and be on with my life. (Little did I know) The assistant swabbed my throat, Doc comes in, feels my lymphnodes, looks at my throat and goes “we’ll finish the test for strep, but I’m telling you now I think it’s mono” PANIC. Mono? How do I have mono?? Strep is negative. They do a monospot. It’s positive. Leave urgent care a wreck and go to my boyfriends as planned. Tell him we can’t kiss or share anything even tho I kissed him two days before I got diagnosed lol but better to try to be safe from here on.
Saturday - Monday I stayed at my boyfriends, progressively getting a worse and worse sore throat.
I go home Monday night, and I am MISERABLE, my parents bring every trick in the book for things for me to take, gargle, etc.
Tuesday, feel worse, I go to urgent care AGAIN, tested for strep and mono AGAIN. Test positive for only mono AGAIN. Get prescribed 5 day oral steroids. Miserable. No sleep.
Wednesday. Home alone, crying, in pain, panicking, just wanting to eat something, talk to my parents, talk to my boyfriends mom (who had mono as a kid), talk to my boyfriend, end up going back to my boyfriends city (an hour and a half away) to go to the ER. ER tells me the same thing as everyone. Mono, it sucks, suck it up and suffer for 2-4 weeks, we can’t do anything.
Thursday - Sunday, the throat pain got worse everyday, I’ve barely slept since Monday, I am crying everyday, can barely drink water, drooling at night (threw said pillow away) because I can’t swallow any spit without physical flinching from how bad it hurts. Gotta throw in some cred here to the bf tho, he was an absolute God send through all of this. Thank God mono isn’t super easy to transfer as long as you’re careful about saliva and whatnot, because he would hold me while I was sobbing because it hurt so bad. Brought me tea with honey several times a day. Got me soft foods, popsicles. Took absolutely incredible care of me and I can’t thank him enough.
Saturday by far was the WORST day for me, convinced myself I had an abscess in my tonsil bc the pain got so unbearably bad. I think I cried for 4 hours straight. Called my mom sobbing. Never in my life have I been on the ground crying in pain just saying “make it stop” over and over again. Told my bf we’re going to the ER again the next day and I slept on the couch that night, took 2000MG of acetaminophen, mentioned the couch for a reason… I let myself drool as much as needed that night, and forced myself to sleep. I got the more sleep that night than I had in 9 days.
Finally, wake up feeling somewhat better, It still hurt, but my pain went from a 12/10, to about a 7/10. Swelling in my tonsils had gone down. I could drink water again without physically recoiling in pain. Slept a few more hours throughout that day. Slept ANOTHER full night that night (less drooling lol)
Today (technically yesterday as it’s 1am) was by far my best day. I was able to go out to eat with my boyfriend, ate soft tacos!! Did some small tasks around the house to help clean up after literally laying in bed for 6 days straight. I’m not sure if it’s from lack of sleep or if the fatigue is kicking in (I’ve seen a lot of people say they get the fatigue once the sore throat clears up) but I’d do one task and then go lay down. But I’m also being VERY careful to not overdo it and make myself go backwards until I’m 100% again.
I’m planning to go home tomorrow, and back to work Wednesday.
As for treatments and advice in pain management and help for symptoms, here is what I used;
Salt water 1/2 tsp, apple cider vinegar 1 tsp, 8oz of warm water (I never measured lol) gargle this ever hour if you want to, I know I did. I only did salt water until Friday though, my dad told me about the apple cider vinegar.
Virgin coconut oil, again didn’t measure, people say 1-3 teaspoons, I used one scoop of a regular spoon mixed into warm water to melt it, I tried to just use it but the texture was gross. I would take one swig and gargle for as long as I could, then drink the rest of the cup, 3 times a day. Started this on Thursday. Although Saturday was my worst day, I do credit this a lot.
PROTEIN SHAKES, my boyfriends parents got me protein shakes delivered to the house bc I literally stopped eating. I was drinking those religiously. They (somehow) hurt less than water and saliva going down and gave me some strength. Premier protein vanilla shakes taste amazing, 30g of protein per shake, plus immune support. They were a life saver.
Acetaminophen, 3000mg per day is the recommended technical limit, I was in so much pain I didn’t care, I am NOT recommending you od on painkillers. But I was taking 2-3 500mg pills, every 4-6 hours, they’d help, somewhat.
Throat numbing spray, this genuinely only helped for max 10 minutes, but it was something when the pain got really bad.
Brushing your teeth/mouthwash, not sure for how many others, but when the infection on my tonsils was at its worst thurs-Sun I could actually TASTE it, it made my mouth feel and taste disgusting. I found brushing my teeth and swishing/gargling with alcohol free mouthwash a couple times a day helped a ton with this.
Looking at my throat just a little bit ago, the swelling has drastically gone down, the white is nearly gone, and the pain is a 2/10. I know I’m not out of the woods yet, bc this is a tricky virus but I’m planning to take it easy and keep eating healthy and keeping up with treatments for at least another week or so. I’m so grateful to people in this forum and the people around me who helped me get through this. And to anyone who’s reading this, you got this, you WILL get through it and it will be okay. This too shall pass as my dad always says. I wanted that as a tattoo before but I really do now lol. If you made it to the end of this novel thank you, and I hope whoever’s reading this, it helps, and that you start feeling better soon! If anyone wants to chat I am more than happy to, I know I needed people who’d been through this pain to talk to/hear from when I was dealing with the emotions from this 🖤

2023.06.06 07:53 PinkPengin [Thank You] Very, very behind
These are not in any particular order - some may have come a few weeks ago, some today.
But I do have good news: I did NOT work on cards at all this weekend, because I spent Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday all doing amazing fun things with my wife as we kicked off our celebration of Pride month. For those who don't know, we currently have two houses, in two different states, one where she mostly lives (in the U.S. Pacific Northwest) and one where I mostly live (in the U.S. Southwest, known as the Cactus Cathouse). We are gearing up to sell our northern outpost house and live together in the Cactus Cathouse, and this was sort of our "last hurrah" weekend before showings and whatnot really get started.
But now, I'm trying to get cardthings caught up so that I'm not trying to deal with them during the eventual relocation, starting with these thanks and hopefully progressing on to a request and an offer tomorrow as time permits.
Also, someone in this (long) list sent me a lovely, large rainbow snail vinyl sticker, but I couldn't tell whose mail it came from. (Maybe u/amyt13
?) Anyway, whoever you are, I appreciate you immensely and I'm sorry for not organizing myself better.
(First of all, thanks to the flair team, because yikes this is the worst and I'm very sorry!) u/amabisca
- This handmade purple card (my favorite color!) is amazing and was such an uplifting surprise. Thank you so, so much! u/amyt13
(x2) - Thank you for the beautiful handmade collage card, the Oscar Wilde card, and all the extras! I hope you are able to find a good place to call home too - the one you were describing sounds like my kind of town, and I hope it works out. I'll cross my fingers for you! u/AppleCritter723
- This cute botanical card/letter I an opening from you is dated in April. APRIL, friend. I am sorry. It is full of good news and cute stickers and I swear I will write actual mail and not just send weird envelopes of things to you and your "bigger little" soon. I hope your Memorial Day weekend travels weren't too bad, and that Gandalf the adventurer is letting you occasionally stay inside. You created a meow-monster! u/awachob
- Goose!! I can't believe I got to be the goose! Thank you so much for a fun offer. (And for the neat stickers!) u/blue-wanderer-quartz
- I am very late saying thanks for the Five of Pentacles cat tarot sticker reading, but it was incredibly appropriate to read about pooling resources as my wife and I re-combine households in part due to love but in large part due to, well, wanting to actually have disposable income! I think it's interesting that we both chose pentacles for each other! (And the cat postcard your reading is on is very cute, I don't want to forget that!) u/bluedecemberart
(x2) - I love the vintage VA hospital postcard from Maine... and we already chatted about the "not noticing the chores" thing but rereading the card as I went to post this made me sure again that we are somehow the same person. WEIRD, but COOL. And your New York skyline postcard is lovely, and now I want to watch A Crown of Candy! u/championvilla
- I adore this MarioKart card! My wife and I used to play a lot (right now, we have the game systems packed for house-showing). I hope that your husband is continuing to feel better (and that the cat finally decided to get off of him, lol!) u/chiquita61
- The sloth mermaid dolphin thank-you card with penguin stickers is absolutely wonderful... and I am so happy you liked my "reject" sticker card in all its glory! u/comingtogetyoubabs
(x6) - This crystal ball card with Petit's ABSOLUTE WISDOM is just amazing, friend. (Also, did I get a little teary at "writer of hugs in card form" MAYBE). And the amazing goodies you included - the cat-yang patch, your beautiful handmade notepaper... there is no way I deserve the awesomeness that is you "buzzing" into my life. And then the second cat card and all the goodies, including the adorable bookmark...! And THEN I realized you had hand-drawn me three tarot cards that you wrote about, AND then I found your origami letter... I am in awe, friend. You are wonderful! u/cswl
(x10) - This is what I get for not keeping up with my thanks, I feel silly with how behind I am for you, my dear friend! (Both in thanking AND in writing back.) Thank you for the cute plant notecard (I do not do Informed Delivery because it will just make me sad, I think); the red fox postcard (did you go to Fogo, which is one of my favorite places ever??); the "sources of acid" postcard (I always feel better when I have time for myself too, and also always delay it too long); the absolutely delicious LouPaper charcuterie board postcard (I have both too many cards and somehow never the ones I really feel like I wish I had to send people); the postcard from The Lion King (yay garage sale days!); the Strange Planet vibrating cat postcard (so outnumbered, I have given up, they are in charge now); the two different New Yorker cartoon cards (you are 100% right - hard times are harder on the one holding down the fort in SO many ways, been there/done that, and also guilt trips suck and I'm sorry the person tried to send you on one); the cute bird saying hi card (the one-house thing was her idea first, and it will definitely be for the best, though I need to make sure I keep focusing on me too!); and especially thanks for "Content Lives Everywhere" collage you made - that is just wonderful. You are so great. I am sorry I'm such a bad postal pal but I'm trying to do better! u/dazeyferry
(x2) - My dear friend, this penguin with flowers card is AMAZING and I am so, so grateful that you thought of me when you saw it. And the little floral thank-you card addition was perfect as well. I love you and I am so glad we are friends! As far as bingeworthy shows - have you seen Ted Lasso? Schmigadoon? (Both on AppleTV.) Those are amazing. We also started watching Hello, Tomorrow, which is a bit sad sometimes but really good! I'll try to think of some more, too. u/draconic_healing
- I love this little tiny Polaroid-style postcard - it's adorable! Please pet the kitty for me - I couldn't tell if you wrote "Bear" or "Bean" but both are great names! u/dwrfstr
- This gold penguin card is amazing and adorable and I cannot believe your luck to find it thrifted! I picked up a set of hundreds of vintage postcards from an art reuse store that's near where we met up, and I ended up with, like, 16 of the same weird chapel at a church camp in South Dakota, so you definitely win... u/fancayschmanzayyy
- Your cat thank-you card was wonderful (as were the cool stickers!) And most of all, I very much appreciate you telling me about your act of kindness and I especially appreciate your caregiving nature. I cared for my mom for many years before she passed away and stories like the one you told will always be especially important to me. You make a difference and I am so grateful you exist! u/Fancykiddens
(x2) - I feel terribly, terribly guilty for how late I am thanking you for this amazing CARD-CEPTION package!! First, from the pengin section: the pengin family you drew me, how awesome are they?! You are so talented! I almost never keep envelopes but this one got immediately saved with my "penguin stash." Then there was your beautiful handmade Frida Kahlo card - exactly my vibe, I love it! The penguin goodie bag with the penguins and their fish snackles inside was adorable too. And then, moving to the "monsteroo" or cute monster section, I adored your Monsters Inc. letter and goodies as well! I especially liked hearing that, at the time you wrote it, you were feeling particularly well and accomplished, and I adored hearing how much carding has helped your outlook. SAME, FRIEND. So much so!! u/feellikebeingajerk
(x2) - Holly Hobbie card (the first, maybe?) has arrived! And yes, it brought back awesome memories. I didn't get a lot of "trendy" things growing up, as my parents and I didn't have a lot of money, but there was a discount department store near us, sort of an early version of a T.J. Maxx or Ross that was called Hills, and it would sometimes get slight misprints or seconds of things like bedding, which is, I am -positive-, how I came to be able to have Holly Hobbie. And I don't remember anything "wrong" with it, so, way to go, Mom of PinkPengin, for that find! LOL. Also, thanks for the cool Papyrus thank-you card from your random offer, and for the stickers! u/fieldofcabins
- This adorable bee thank-you postcard is so great (and the penguin as the stamp image, ahhh!) I am glad your dad is healing and please let him know I'm still thinking of him. (And of course I'm always thinking of you, too!) u/GizmoDOS
- Thanks for the solar system postcard, friend! I loved hearing from you. Life really has been hectic lately. I hope yours is moving in the direction of settling down. Mine is going to be rough briefly but then hopefully a lot smoother! u/hermitcreature
- I love this Studio Ghibli-themed card and all the great stickers and dragon facts from your book (and the amazing Zimbabwean owl stamp)! I hope you will like your card from me in exchange when it arrives - I just sent it this week, I am very sorry! u/HexagonalRainbow
- I loved your anime postcard but even more, I loved hearing about your concert! u/isar-love
(x2) - These cartoon owls with their hats and shoes on your card from March are AMAZING! (And the accompanying postcard with more behatted owls also made my day!) I agree with you very much that owl facial expressions are the thing that especially warms my heart to them. They seem so intelligent and curious and often kind (especially in illustrations) with their big eyes looking right at me! I have several little stuffed-animal friend owls, including two very special ones named Swoops (who is tan) and Fwoops (who is pink, though his name reference is from fuschia - he is a "Fuschia Swoops" - way better than a Pink Swoops, who I fear would have to be "Poops," LOL!) Thank you so much for your wonderful kindness and friendship and fun mail! u/jaimekj
- Thank you for the floral card, great stickers and most importantly your note and your friendship! I do like New Mexico (more than my part of the Southwest, honestly, but we had family reasons we picked where we did)! I'm crossing my fingers about an interest-rate drop. If I had my choice, I'd either like to find someone bigger in Washington, or move back to Pennsylvania, I think. There are ups and downs to both. And I will VERY much hate going back to snow, that's one thing I do love about where I am in the desert! u/jvanct88
- I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have a letter from you with an update (and updated address), dear friend! In one way, I am VERY sorry for all the things you have been finding out, but in another way I am happy that you finally know the truth and I believe that knowing it will be very helpful in having closure and a good feeling as you move to a new chapter in your life. And I am VERY hopeful that your tattoo came out amazing! I am a big, big fan of tattoos and piercings. A funny story is that I got 2 new tattoos and several piercings when my wife and I were separated, including a nosering, which she always said she hated. (She didn't mind other tattoos and piercings generally.) When we got back together, she apologized for ever saying that, and said how good it looks on me. That was nice, but I very plainly also told her, "I wouldn't care even if you hate it, because I love it and I'm keeping it forever." LOL! Anyway, I love this dinosaur princess cactus card and I am very happy to hear from you and will write to you again soon! u/KatDuq
(x3) - My dear friend!! This butterfly card you made to thank me for MY card in honor of your new letter opener is beautiful (as are the included penguin stickers, which are beautiful, of course!) I also loved your separate letter talking about the things you make. I do journal, sometimes, but I suffer from the problem of all notebook and journal-havers... I hate to USE the beautiful books I have lest I "mess them up!" What really helped me get out of that mindset somewhat was actually the Happy Planner notebooks, because I felt like I could always remove pages and rearrange! And now I am getting into bookbinding and I feel like that helps too because I can more easily make things "modular" and not have the fear of ruining a whole gigantic book right off the bat. I know that's perfectionism talking and I am working on getting rid of that mindset altogether, but for now, baby steps. And HUGE congrats on what you've sold, you definitely have a customer in me if you get an online store set up! Finally, thank you for the lovely oracle reading, which (unsurprisingly) was just what I needed to hear now, tonight, as I write this! I specifically didn't look closely at it until now because I figured I'd see it when the time was right and... yup. I did. You are amazing and I appreciate you sharing your beautiful new deck with me. (And that logo stamp you got! SO worth it, it looks amazing!) u/littlemermaidxx
- Your Pride Is Everyday postcard is beautiful - thank you so much! I have Pride happy mail coming your way too. u/maiiiu
(x3) - WOW, you are way too kind to me!! What an adorable thank-you postcard, first of all. And I adored your wonderful handmade penguin collage thank-you card too, and loved hearing the good news about your summer trip plans. I hope it is a truly special time for you and your dear best friend! And then this custom penguin stationery... WOW. You are just amazing and I am very grateful! (Also, the way you attached your sticker gifts in your collage card was great, I might steal that method.) u/melhen16
- Where did you find this amazing desert-post-office-style card? Did you make it? It's amazing! (And thank you for the beautiful stickers, too!) u/mumbagoespainting
(x3) - Your handmade hometown card is so beautiful, my friend! I loved hearing how you learned to say it. (I admit - I get that one wrong on the first try and have to correct myself every time, despite being from not terribly far south, where we heard it more than occasionally!) And your watercolor dragon is absolutely fabulous!! I loved hearing that we have very similar color tastes - purples, grays, teal! Seeing the dragon pick up those colors was perfect. Finally, your black-and-white abstract card with the glitter made me smile, though I was sad to read about why you had to miss the trip... I hope you are feeling better! And, of course, thank you again for all your stickers and other extras and most importantly for your kindness and friendship. I am beyond grateful for you!! u/ninajyang
- I like the crafty postcard from Pipsticks! And yeah... Hairspray... love the music, definitely not sure about some other things... sigh. u/nirelleth
- I absolutely adore this great penguin and fox postcard for our "wish" exchange! I hope you like yours when it arrives, too. (I just sent it last week, I am so sorry for the wait!) I think my favorite fact about penguins is that they are not all polar; in fact, some of my favorites are temperate ones. (I say, in fact, that I myself am a "temperate pengin!") u/non_avian
(x3) - I am VERY sorry this has taken me so long to write (and even to open and fully enjoy). Your handmade Scoffby postcard with my past-present-future reading was absolutely amazing and is going on my "display shelf" of some of my most treasured cards! I need to know how you made his crystal ball, which is gorgeous! Also, please tell Scoffby that I am very much food-motivated (in fact, I just bribed myself tonight with hibachi). So, his signature chant is VERY well-placed when directed at me. I also adored your letter and the cute paper it was written on, and I am thrilled about the Furby washi card and all the goodies, too! I had no idea that Furby washi even existed, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised... and the capy noodles sticker and adorable penguins and everything else... I am so grateful. I have some mail coming your way very soon; all the "parts" are ready, I just need to put them together and actually get it sent! u/Peonynote
(x2) - Your cat thank-you card was adorable and most importantly, I am so excited for all your travels (and I LOVED seeing your penguin friends together!) And the lovely rainbow card with penguin stickers and super-cute penguin sticky note, in honor of Pride Month, made my day! I hope your walking is going well, still, now that it's getting warmer and stickier. u/ResidentComposer1939
- I loved your sweet bird notecard and your penguin drawing (it's WAY better than my drawings, let me tell you!) u/SherlockLady
(x3) - Your beautiful butterfly card was lovely as it was, and then I saw the cute mini-card with the reminder about being the happiest/healthiest version of myself, AND the special penguin painting from your young carding apprentice... and wow, I just felt so special! What an awesome gift. u/soft_distortion
- This Gender Is Such a Drag postcard is perfecttttttttt. I loved hearing about the drag brunches too! u/thecalendonianrose
- This square penguin card is amazing and I am so grateful that you thought of sending it to me! (And all the stickers are lovely, thank you!) My wife and allllll the kitties say hello back. u/TigerLady13
- This is definitely a late thanks, I apologize! But I appreciated the vintage Continental Divide postcard and the "Peng-Win" pun... made me giggle! u/TyeDyeAmish
- I love this pufferfish card, and I have really enjoyed getting to chat with you recently! Most importantly, how was the book sale?! I'm fairly certain it's one I've been to in the past, based on the date you said you were going, and I miss it and a few others in the area so much! u/umeshufan
- Why, yes, this Cat Island postcard DOES look like my house, and yes, there are really 19 inside, and even funnier, YES, I am allergic to cats. The thing is, you do build up a tolerance to ones you are around regularly, but when I travel and then come back, it is truly a nightmare. Thankfully I almost never let any in my bedroom and never to sleep, so I can at least breathe overnight! u/wabisabi_sf
(x2) - My friend, I am in awe of these amazing pink-and-penguin-themed pieces of happy mail!! I had never seen these before and I am DEFINITELY going to be getting more. You are so wonderful to me! u/welshfancy
(x5) - Thanks for the Laughlin postcard (very belatedly)! Your trip to Long Beach sounds almost as multi-stop as my recent cards' journeys to you, though thankfully you didn't need your passport, at least?! And thank you also for the amazing handmade "blooms" collage card (which, as far as I'm concerned, is appropriate for spring OR summer, so it seems perfectly timed to me); the great cat mini-card that you wrote while either eating breakfast or getting your tires changed on your travels; the penguin-with-J-based-life-preserver doodle (which I thought was GREAT, so don't even say it's worse than your others, which I also liked!); and your lovely letter on penguin paper, plus of course the bonus stationery! You spoil me!! I'm thinking of you as you try to decide "what's next" locationally, too. u/yetanotherblankface
- I think your beautiful handmade card for the "Hometown" meta challenge is giving exactly the right vibes! It certainly made me feel cozy and relaxed, which is the feeling I'd most like to associate with home. u/yviantics
- Your hand-drawn Pink Party Penguin postcard with its lovely hat, and the great penguin sticker, absolutely made my day!! I do not draw well at all and I am always amazed when people who can will share their talent with me. Thank you so, so much! (And, by the way, I tried the bananas-and-barbecue-chips combo and was really surprised at how good it was, so thanks for that, too!) u/56thorns
- Thank you for the wonderful postcard from the "Falls!" My wife and I were there to ring in the New Year for 2019 and I've been a couple other times too. Such a lovely place for a getaway, and it sounds like you had fun! u/todayisfab
- In my stack of not-thanked-yet mail I found my very own postcard from our meetup, and it made me smile all over again. Thank you all so much, again, for a fun day. And to whichever of you put penguin stickers on this along with the cacti - I am super impressed that you pulled that off without me noticing, they are WAY too cute.

2023.06.06 05:01 Darren716 Post WWE Raw 6/5/2023 Show Discussion Thread
Venue: XL Center (Hartford, CT) Attendance: ~8900
|Winner ||Loser ||Match Finish ||Stipulation |
|Becky Lynch ||Sonya Deville w/ Chelsea Green ||Man-Handle Slam ||MitB Qualifying Match |
|GUNTHER w/ Imperium ||Kevin Owens w/ Sami Zayn ||Roll-Up following Imperium brawl with Sami || |
|Ronda Rousey and Shayna Bazler ||Kayden Carter and Katana Chance ||Kirafuda Clutch || |
|Ricochet ||Shinsuke Nakamura ||Double DQ when Bronson Reed attacks both men || |
|Zoey Stark w/ Trish Stratus ||Natalya ||Z-360 || |
|Indus Sher w/ Jinder Mahal ||Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander ||Referee Stoppage || |
|Seth Rollins (c) ||Damian Priest ||Curbstomp ||For the World Heavyweight Championship |
- Kick-Off with Seth Rollins making his way to the ring and welcoming us to Monday Night Rollins and says the last week has been a non-stop par-tay before thinking to himself when was the last time they had a World Title match on Raw. He had to go all the way back to two years ago and says that is too damn long so he put out for the call for an open challenge which was answered by the Judgement Day's Damian Priest. Seth admits he's kinda excited for it since he wanted to fight the best, and love them or hate them, The Judgement Day are as as good as it gets and he's looking forward to showing them that as good as they are they just ain't him. The Judgement Day come out to interrupt with Finn and Damian walking down the ramp and Seth wants to know where Rhea and Dom are out wondering if they're gonna jump him from behind or making out somewhere. Priest says Dom and Rhea has their own business to take care of and Seth says he's sure they do before asking why Finn and Priest have to go everywhere and ask if they even gotta hold on together when they go to the bathroom. Finn calls him funny but says no one is gonna be laughing when Priest beats him for the title tonight. Damian admits that he thinks Seth is a deserving champion and he's beaten everyone he's been in the ring with, but so has he. Damian says he never knew when this opportunity was going to happen so he is taking full advantage and he doesn't need Finn, Dom, or Rhea to take care of Rollins. Seth tells Priest if he's so confident then why doesn't he put his money where his mouth with and leave his crew in the back and suggests it may be better if he leaves Finn in the back since he usually can't handle a fight with him. Finn tells Seth that he doesn't dictate how they roll but Priest interrupts to say he's fine with the stipulation because either way he's leaving tonight as World Heavyweight Champion and put a short end to Seth's title reign. Seth says he's looking forward to it, and even if the reign ended tonight it'd still be much longer than Finn's was.
- Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are interviewed backstage about what happened on Smackdown. Sami says he isn't the one to say he told you so but he's glad to say the Usos do what they should have done months ago, well at least Jimmy was able to but hopes Jey follows suit. They are interupted by Kaiser and Vinci, Ludwig says that the Bloodline is no longer their problem, Imperium is. Kevin goes on a rant saying that they told them already last week to not appear when they aren't asked. GUNTHER appears and tells Owens he needs to control his temper. Owens says he'll show him how much he can control it and challenges him to a match right now and storms to the ring.
- Backstage Matt Riddle says he's tired of seeing GUNTHER cheat week after week and says if it wasn't for Kaiser and Giovanni he would have lost the Intercontinental Championship long ago. Kaiser and Vinci come by and demand to know how dare he degrade GUNTHER's good name and asks Riddle what he's going to do about it before shoving Riddle. Riddle grabs Vinci and flips him over the crates before grabbing Vinci's leg and locking him in an ankle lock until officials come by to pull him off.
- Backstage Shayna Bazler says they manifested this a decade ago when they were still in the octagon and Ronda says they are finally going to legitimize the titles and want to see anyone try and challenge them. Katana Chance and Kayden Carter approach them and say they're up for a fight but Ronda and Shayna both dismiss them and attempt to intimidate them. Ronda says if they have a death wish so bad then they'll get their baptism by fire.
- Ricochet is shadow-boxing backstage when Bronson Reed approaches and calls him lucky for qualifying for Money in the Bank when he rag dolled him two weeks ago. Ricochet says it wasn't luck that he beat a former world champion and Bronson couldn't get the job done against Nakamura. Bronson says he was dominating Shinsuke until but is cut off by Nakamura saying until he beat him. Bronson walks off as Ricochet tells Nakamura he respects him but that won't change things tonight or at Money in the Bank.
- Backstage Chad Gable says Otis is the reason they came together with Maxine Dupree and Maxine says Otis is what made her realize their true potential but wants to know what that Viking troll. Chad tells her that he has a plan to train Otis to deal with the Viking Raiders and is having him read up on Viking literature but he is also going to teach her how to deal with Valhalla and tells her to get changed so they can train.
- It's time for Miz TV! Miz says he knew once he heard about the World Title match that tonight would be special so he had to secure a special guest and welcomes out Cody Rhodes. Cody comes to the ring and Miz says he looks dashing tonight before getting down to business. He says last week Cody listed all the cities he'll be in and challenged Brock Lesnar, the same man who broke his arm, to a fight? Isn't that kinda stupid. Cody says Mike is coming right out of the gate with it. Miz corrects him that in this ring he is The Miz thank you. Cody says he hadn't heard it been called stupid, he heard it called crazy, gutsy, and required balls which Miz knows a tiny bit about. Cody says since we all know Brock is on his yearly vacation so he has a feeling he won't be seeing Brock for a while but he will be waiting every week for him. Miz says he has a surprise for Cody, another multi-generational superstar who can know exactly what Cody goes through and introduces the one and only Dominik Mysterio who makes his way down with Rhea Ripley. Miz starts to talk but Rhea tells him to be quiet and Miz complies before she hands the mic to Dom. Dom attempts to speak but is booed out of it, Cody sarcastically asks for them not to boo Dom and Rhea demands that they show some respect. Dom powers through the boos to say that he listened to Cody talk last week like he was the big dog but compared to someone who did hard time he's just a birdie with a broken ring. Then he heard him list off all the crappy towns he'll be at and it made him realize that Cody is a bad father who'd rather be out waiting for Brock than at home with his daughter and says him a dead-beat just like Rey. Cody says he has a lot of empathy for the 15 minutes Dom spent in prison and calls that real hard time and says Dom ended up with a worse prison tattoo than he did. Then at Wrestlemania he didn't have a match at Rey, he had a public spanking. Cody admits that it is true that Rey made some terrible mistakes in his life, because he's looking right at one. Dom goes to leave but then smacks Cody as he's looking down and then hides behind Rhea as he taunts Cody and Ripley challenges him to take a shot. As Dom and Rhea retreat up the ramp Miz tries to hug Cody but instead Cody knocks him with a forearm from his titanium cast.
- Backstage Paul Heyman invites us to join him to join him this Friday when family drama will play out as Jey Uso makes his historic choice. As a wiseman he must at times deliver unpleasant news even if it is to Roman Reigns, and this is some unpleasant news. This will tear apart the Anoai family when Jey makes the right choice to stand by his brother...Solo. Heyman says you can share a womb with Jimmy but he will never be closer than with your Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, and says this Friday Jey will acknowledge that fact, or else.
- During the main event Finn attempts to blindside Seth on the outside but Rollins is able to super kick him off. Priest asks Finn why he's out there before re-focusing on the match. Following the end of the match Balor enters the ring to stare down with Seth.

Hi everyone! I haven’t posted in a year due to the fact that my SO had went NC with his parents on Memorial Day last year.
To start this off, FMIL texted SO on my birthday asking if she made a trip down to us would he visit with her. So he said yes in order to have a face to face conversation with her and see where they’re relationship would go or if they’ve changed at all over the last year.
This past weekend (Friday-Sunday) my Future MIL flew into town to visit with my SO. She has not changed but she believes she has. She made a compelling argument to him, because manipulation is her best tactic. She’s been spending a lot of time over the past year with a family member that is in psychology and a therapist. She told my SO that she’s been hard on them and she’s been telling them that we’ve been trying to set boundaries with them and they trampled over them. Blah blah blah. MIL was able to take everything the person was saying and remember it, did she actually take in what she was saying and change absolutely not. My SO had explained to her when she first got in that he didn’t want to take photos and find them on Facebook later, she immediately said “oh stop” and kept taking photos. Due to the fact that she is here to have conversations, try to see where their relationship will go, and see the area he lives in that they hate.
Then the next day (Saturday) he was all over her Facebook page, profile picture, cover photo, and a post. Then his father shared the posts. So after he found out again she didn’t respect what he wanted. He spoke to her at breakfast on Sunday and stated that he tried to set a boundary with her and she completely disrespected what he wanted again. She said “oh I’m just so excited to see you and spend time with you”. So here we are again only worried about her, her feelings and her wants. By the end of the trip my SO got what he needed to off his chest and got to see that no matter what his mother isn’t going to change. So now him and I can move on, and he’ll be the holiday text kid for now. But in the near future there will be tough conversations had about where they are going to be in OUR lives when we get married and all those things. We are both very relieved that this weekend is over with and we can now move on with our lives!
Funny part though, my SO always thinks about me no matter what. So while he was out shopping with his mom he bought me a new yeti cup that I’ve been wanting. Then on Sunday he was out with her looking for new work boots. So while he was in the boot store he started looking for cowboy boots for me. She automatically said “I thought we were here for work boots for you” LOL! Then he found the boots I’ve been wanting and actually bought them for me, she said “you spoil her.” He told me it was in a good way….I’m not so sure about that but it’s still funny that even though she had time with him all weekend he still thought of me.
