I had no idea which section of the forum I could've put this in, so I just out it here lol.

Anyway, this is The Official Thread of Ranting. Basically, you post whatever junk is happening in your life and relate to other people and help each other get through it. That's at least what I hope for.

Recently my parents have been arguing a lot over some the smallest things and just haven't been getting along in general. The most at peace I've seen them is when they're watching TV and that still doesn't last long, they begin with some around the lines of "We've already seen this" and it just gets worse. My dad will either eat something then get on his computer and sleep or take it out on me and my younger brother. My mom just lays in her bed and does something on her computer. All my brother can do is play video games and tip toe around everyone because he's scared of being yelled at. All I can do is lay in my room with him and pray they stop.

Captcha doesn't like me very much

Hmm, I'm not sure how to help you. I've never had to deal ith anything like that before, but here's what I though up. Were they arguing as much before the quarantine?  It's possible that being inside forever is getting to them.  You guys could try playing games (not monapaly, Risk or catan, those make people cry very quickly) either online or in person games help. if you start off with playing an online game togther then go to bord or card games then maybe that'll make them remember that the little things (that make people tick) arn't as important as they have seemed to them in the past weeks. I think maybe part of the problem is communication. I know that's how most of the arguments where I live start. (also make sure that you and your brother try to be nice to each other whenever possible, (I have no clue how you ones act togther) it might put everyone into a better mood)

 

The only thing bothering me is being an extrovert and also being stuck inside. How's everyone else doing? What have you guys been doing to pass the time?

Aww, that's sad to hear, but hey, don't let it get to you :) if this is something recent, then they might be just stressed out from the quarantine (my mom is getting pretty mad from being indoors all the time), like the person above just said. Try watching some movies or playing with your little brother, usually those things can cause quite the trauma to kids (assuming he's a kid xD). I hope things get better there soon, wish ya luck :))

Thanks :)

I'll try the ideas and see if they work. Although my dad isn't into online games. He likes old school games like the original Sonic and the original Mortal Combat. He likes chess and checkers so I'd have to find some way to get a game that we will all enjoy and have fun with. 

They did argu before the quarantine but not as much, so that might be it. Thank you to you both :)

This isn't anywhere near as bad as your problems but I am pretty sure the game stole 500 of my gems and Brynjolf isn't replying to my PMs.

Hmm. Yes I am aware of the infamous half answer.

 

It just sucks cause I had been hiding gem hoard tickets for years then I used them all. And now my gems are gone and the boards are gone. And Brynjolf is ghosting me. So in this case, being half answered is at least some form of acknowledgement. O.o

Lol how does a company- or at least an admin just leave someone half answered? Surely they would think 'hmm, this is not a good customer service' just answer it fully!! Maybe he's tired of answering people? So why doesn't he take his email address down?

This reminded me, before I joined the forum I emailed the JS support them self (for a bug not gems though) and they fixed it for me... Do they just not like helping us with gems because they think we're lying?

GAME THEORY!

I have a theory. 500 of your gems is a bit much to simply disappear, and recently they've been really pushy with events and trying to get people to buy gems and membership so that people can get they hybrid dragon. I think they're loggin into our accounts and taking some of our gems to push sales more and they're not replying because they know what happened and that it's not a glitch and they just want more money. Money is the one and only thing they've been pushing for recently. It started with them removing all dragon armor so people would purchase gems or membership so they could get the armor they wanted.

This is a theory based on fact. Let's see what kind of hate/support I get from this lol.

I mean...that's not totally out of the realm of possibility

C O N S P I R A C Y 8O *X-Files illuminati music*

 

Jokes and all aside, this is an interesting thought. Though I would really hope it not to be true, I wouldn't put it past them. Back in Dreadfall/Snoggletog, about 250 gems of mine disappeared. Now, it wasn't a huge deal, because I earned them back quickly, but I never got a response from the admins about it...So...I can see where you're coming from.

I'd really hope they don't resort to such scummy tactics though... :I I suppose all people really care about anymore is money and power though -_-

*Sits back to relax and see what drama may arise* Hot dogs anyone? xD

NIGHT FURY!!! GET DOWN!!!

I had to think on it for a while and discuss it with my dad before saying anything about it. I honestly hoped it wouldn't be true also but, it's unfortunately very possible.

Thinking back not it...During Snoggletog I lost a few gems out of nowhere, but it wasn't a large amount like this. I didn't think much of it because they are really easy to get back, but then I saw this and had myself a theory.

I'll gladly have a hot dog with ketchup and some spicy chili on it XD

I've seen a lot of depressing news about this quarantine 'lasting for two years' rubbish even though some states are starting to reopen again and it is hard to not read those posts, and in the end I just start having stressful moments.

 

 

I just need help on how to deal with these doomsday posts. I just can't escape them. Even when my parents reassure me I'm just worried about this continuing to happen and they'll give up on trying to calm me down. :( I just want to go to see my grandpa next month! :'( :'(

Bio (Firesome):

Firesome is a young girl who had been a slavegirl to Grimmel for ten years since she was stolen away from her family by him when Grimmel raided her home island, killing her parents. She finds her freedom after meeting a fierce young female Skrill who she sets free and calls Azyru after the two form a secret bond. They escape together outwitting Grimmel's Deathgrippers and going as far as they can away from their tormenter. While resting on a small island, Firesome receives a vision from her real birth father, the Mighty Thor, and he tells her to journey to an island of Dragon Riders.

After months of traveling and bonding, Firesome and her new bond sister dragon Azyru happen on the island of Berk, meeting Chief Hiccup who takes an interest in Firesome's strong connection, almost as strong as him and Toothless, and offers her to train dragons and ride alongside other students in their School of Dragons.

 

 

Bio (Azyru):

Azyru is a Skrill who once lived fierce and free, ruling the skies until Grimmel shot her down, the Deathgripper sedative knocking her out, and wakes in a cage. She befriends a strange young slavegirl that Azyru grows very attatched to after a time, and when Firesome breaks her free, she vows to protect her like a big sister. The two would fly together for a long time.

Let me offer some advice if I may

As someone with severe anxiety who has been terrified to her core for at least a few moments every time she hears the word apocalypse since the 2012 crap, let me say I fully understand what kind of stress you're feeling. As you said, even your parents, the people you trust most, can't quell this fear. 

 

The lockdown will end. The vaccine will come. People will find remedies in the meantime that lesson symptom severity, and we will make it through. There are a lot of people out there who either don't believe in this virus being real or those who think it's a conspiracy theory, and then there are people who just want to see some glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel to get them through to the next day. 

 

All in all, my best advice is to find a good source of news and updates. Not tv news, not politicians - I've been keeping myself sane since February by watching a doctor on yt who is level-headed and cares deeply for people. If you want to go to youtube and type in the search bar it's "John Campbell", an older UK retired nurse I believe are his credentials. Every day he posts an update; news about tests, about vaccine progress, about good and bad rates as they develop, and pretty much the state of the world. He isn't all doom and gloom nor all sunshine and rainbows, which is what I think everyone needs right now. He reassures often that, as bad as things seem, we WILL go back to normal. It may take awhile, but we'll be okay. 

 

Sorry if that was a bit of a ramble, but it's just I personally level with the kind of anxiety you're talking about and I wanted to share my coping mechanism in the small chance it may help you as well.

Captcha doesn't like me very much

(wanted to add a few things) 

 

The CDC is the best place to check. A youtuber I found was Dr.Mike who puts a video out every Wednesday about the virus. Other than that, if you don't have a religion (I don't know if or what (if so) religion you have) the virus must seem even more scary. I've been praying a lot and that takes a huge load off. 

 

Anyway, they should have found/made a vacine by next year and the guess is the virus will ether take a break or be done by summer. Life will go back to normal. I have no doubt about that.

Forgot CDC lol

Yeah, obviously CDC is important to keep up on. How did that slip my mind? lol 

 

Interesting you bring up religion and prayer - I've had good and bad experiences with this. Unfortunately I know someone who is, shall I say, extreme in their beliefs and thinks this is, well, I don't think I have to spell it out. But at the same time I do agree that religion can be helpful. And even if you're not religious, I think it's a good idea to at least hold onto the concept of hope. Even if it's something small like hoping tomorrow will be a little better than today, it can change your mindset regardless of your beliefs. You can find something good in almost everything if you look for it, so that's one way to trudge on. 

 

Also just to add a bit of positivity, almost every country that has the technology has their own vaccine (which is good considering we don't know if it differs in any areas) so while legally it can't be tested and approved until about next year like you said, it's uplifting to hear there are vaccines already well underway. :3

Thanks

I'll look into both doctors/nurses and see what they have to say.

 

My mom is a Lab Technition and studied a lot of bacteria, germs, and etc. She has been my source of what it is and what will/can do and constantly tells me that I just have to keep my hands away from my face and wash my hands often; especially before eating.

 

My family is religious but (I don't know how to say this) they don't follow every rule that we're supposed to follow. For example: my dad swears left and right and holds grudges. My mom swears a little but thats about it. I swear a bit too much and lie about somethings, which I regret deeply and I am trying to get out of the habbit of doing so. Anyway, we pray everynight before we sleep, in hopes that it all will end soon.

It doesn't help that the weather is actually nice for once and we can't do anything. It got to around 22°c which is quite warm considering, uh, English spring time. Everyone in my area is saying how DIY shops should be open so we can occupy ourselves and actually do some gardening. I also entertained my self by taking really close up pictures of insects. I would post them but I'm too dumb to know how by mobile.

I wish I could stay home tbh. I don't want to go to work, I don't want to get corona just because terrible people who are both illiterate and impatient break their tech devices all the time. I don't want to touch their nasty stuff. These people are incapable of just being decent and will go out of their way to do everything they shouldn't be doing.

 

I should get a water spritzer to spritz them with when they get up in my face again.

 

Also I can't wait for you-know-what to get what it deserves. Freedom to the people!
