  1. "If you never try, you'll never know" - This quote is in my head as soon as I will try something new and think "man, this is really hard". "Go/try harder!" - Enough said.
  2. You checked this out? Or this:

  5. Exact same situation here. I tried something back then when I was in the same situation. I was in the detox = all the 'friends' never contacted me and if they did it was all about "gaming today?". After like a month or so I logged in to steam and discord to play with them, after 2 days playing with them I went back to my detox and didnt log in to steam or discord. Well guess what? No questions like "How are you?" or "Are you fine?" or something like that. For me its like, my gaming friends are dead to me, except for 1 guy who is a IRL friend aswell for like 4 years now. I told him that gaming is a pure waste of time and my focus is on other things to improve myself, my life, my future and he agrees with me. He uninstalled steam and all other gaming clients + games. I brought him to learn programming and he has so much fun, I also teach him the stuff I know. The worst part is, the other IRL friend whom I know for like 13 years now is the worst person. Contacts me when he has "PC issues" or wants to game. He goes out often, but never asks me, I gave up on asking since he never has time for me IRL, just for games in the evening, so fk this guy, even though we did so much IRL stuff in the past (going out to play football, go to the cinema or just chill and drink some beers). What I want to say: When the people you gamed with never ask you how are you doing, screw them. They arent worth your time. You will waste your time thinking about them and this might make you sad. There are million other peoples in the world who can be your friend. Don't rely on the people who don't give a fk about you and only care about you when you play games with them.
  6. It distracts you. During the VR sessions you could do other (productive) things. Sell it and buy something good for you or even others. Maybe a dinner or take out a girl, go to a gym, go out and watch a movie, having an app on your phone you use often? Go and buy the pro version to support the developer.
  7. A bit late, but I finally setup a dedicated dev environment. So if anyone wants to test something, let me know.
  8. Fight the spammers! Lately we have had a 'few' problems with spammers. They kinda bypassed the 'disallowed links' method by putting their shitty websites (which mostly lead to links with empty content - but still will generate traffic for them) into the title. I found a way to minimize this issue which I just implemented and is active from now on. It might not work for every spammy link, but it will definitely minimize the issue. If you found a spammer, you still can report him and our mod team will take care of it immediately. If our system banned you by accident, drop me a E-Mail ([email protected]).
  9. Hi there, that sentence there is my mind now for a bit and I was thinking about it. Disclaimer: I am not a parent nor a father. I just would like to know if its always parents fault if kids are having a gaming addiction. Taking me here as an example. So, when I was young my stepfather limited the internet time. That means I could only play (or use the internet at all) for a specific amount of time per day. This pissed me off after a while, so I went out more often, went to friends (sometimes for a whole weekend) to play games there. When I was deeper into gaming and was at an amateur (ESL league - if someone still remembers it) at counter strike it pissed me even more off to go to friends to play. Then I was looking for ways to hack the internet (lol), after researching a lot of stuff (resources where so limited back then..) I finally found a way: Sniffing. But first I needed to figure out how my internet was limited, because it was for specific PC/Laptop and if its possible to block access on the 'hardware side', then I figured it can be limited in the router. Now the hardest part was to get the password. Sniffing alone didnt bring me anywhere, so I needed to 'Social Engineer' my stepfather to login into the router while I sniffed our whole local network. Voila - Router password sniffed. And there it was: A setting to limit the internet access for my MAC address. The problem: My stepfather wasnt an idiot (and still isnt - still love him though) so I needed to make it look original every evening, because he might check it now and then. So, yeah.. that was the time when my 'carrer' basically began ? . And he never noticed anything until I told him about it when I had my own apartment.. he was pretty shocked lol. But to get back to the "You suck at parenting": Is it always parents fault at all? We have 2018, the internet is full of resources, informations, tutorials, guides for basically ANY topic, then we have schools where kids talking about topics, etc. If kids are clever or smart, they might find a way. Is it still the parents fault? Yes, you don't need to buy your kid the new console (or any console at all), or buy them the new game.. but again, they might have friends with a console and we have piracy (which is a lot easier than like 17-18 years back..but also a lot riskier!). So, what is your opinion about it guys?
