Yep pretty much. I assumed most everyone who joined during Sanctuary v1.0 didn't want to come back. lol
Well, I never had a problem with you in the first place haha. And since I was a part of the community, why wouldn't I want to be around? I mean, yeah, I am not really into gaming so I can't post as much as I'd like on here, but I'm definitely sticking around. Most of the people who joined during Sanctuary 1.0 are now posting on Lanny's forum. I kind of had a habit to log in every few months, posting once or twice and then disappearing for months again just to do the same thing. But now I'll be posting on both forums actively. Again!

Don't worry, I'm not much of a rule breaker! Well, these past seven years were really rough on me, having to deal with everything on my own was really difficult. Then when I had placed my hopes on someone, and waited for years to reach out only to have those high hopes destroyed in just one moment, which made me deeply depressed. But I am halfway over it. I'm turning to hard drugs despite not having done drugs in my life before. Also, during this time I dropped out of college like ten times. Not even joking. I'm starting again at the end of this year, for real this time. Don't worry, it's not heroin or cocaine or benzos that I'm gonna do. My friend from high school told me I should do LSD, he knew I was going through a tough time emotionally and mentally and he said he used to be depressed until he started doing LSD. I wasn't convinced, due to being religious and all, until an online friend said the same thing about LSD. So I changed my mind, contacted my friend from high school and we met up last week in front of our old high school so he could hook me up with some acid. Ironically, some students had sprayed "LSD" somewhere which is somewhat of a tradition that seniors do. It's an abbreviation and it stands for "Laatste Schooldag" which is an event that only seniors are allowed to partake in, they can do what they want as long as it's not illegal. "Laatste Schooldag" literally translates to "Last Day of School." So my friend and I laughed when we saw that. Anyway, so he gave me a microdot of 150mcg of 1cP-LSD. I sort of hope that doing acid will give me the push I need to fully get over the emotional trauma that I had to deal with all by myself, though I'm not really sure if it will.. but I feel like I should at least try. Sorry for the life story, but since you asked, thought I'd just tell you. Anyway... enough about me, what about you? How are you doing these days? I hope you're in a way better place than I am, emotionally, mentally and financially and any other way you can think of.

I'm doing good all things considered. Finishing up college and looking to push Sanctuary forward. I think the next step is to start doing paid advertising, though that's gonna be a chunk of money.

I'm glad to hear things are going well on your end, may it stay this way! I am clueless when it comes to advertising, but it'd probably be costy, I guess. If I had any knowledge I'd have helped you any way I could have.

That's really stupid. Don't turn to hard drugs to cope with depression. Then you just have depression and a drug addiction.
My brother got electroshock therapy, and that worked well for him.

Basically do anything other than harming yourself/other people.

Hey guys. I appreciate the concern, but I ended up doing hard drugs -- or rather, psychedelic drugs... it has no addictive quality plus you cannot overdose on it (you'll be fine if you do, as long as you get medical help). Interestingly enough, just one trip was enough to get rid of my depression. I'm glad I used it! I did have a killer headache prior to taking it and it got worse during the trip. I just had to lay down and before I knew it, I fell asleep. This fact seems to puzzle people with experience in LSD as everyone claims you are unable to sleep when you're tripping. I concluded I have a naturally higher tolerance to it. So I'm fine, guys--and thank you for the concern. I'm glad electroshock therapy worked well for your brother. I actually have OCD so I could not deal with having doctors use often-used equipments on me, so electroshock therapy was never the answer for me. I don't think they even do that where I am from (the Netherlands).

Maybe you should help us start filling up BLTC by posting some of your drug experiences. And yes, I did hear that LSD is surprisingly therapeutic.

They call it something else now days. I think electroconvulsive therapy or something.

Sure, I'll go and post a thread detailing my first time trying acid. I don't know if there's a "tl;dr" mentality here but if there is one, I will try to keep it short.

You're right, it's called electroconvulsive therapy. I just stumbled upon a Dutch article (I live in the Netherlands) and it says it's meant for people who are clinically depressed and the medicines don't work. Also for people in a catatonic state and those who suffer from schizophrenia. So I don't think they would do it on people with OCD as it is not seen as extreme enough, I guess.

Man, I'm in two Discord servers with you, Arnox. You could just ping me!

Thanks for the mention though. Glad I'm still memorable. I haven't been attending anything resembling forums for a while now, so sanctuary fell off my radar. Maybe I can relearn the habit again? Dunno.

Well, I've written out lots of essays about Sanctuary and its benefits and why it needs to exist and blah de blah blah, but honestly, all that aside, I'd just say to follow the rules, post what you want, and just enjoy the site.

I don't want people to think about Sanctuary as this job or obligation they need to do. Just find a sub-forum or two and post away. Or you could upload some videos to our channel should you so desire. And of course, we have the Sanctuary Events Calendar where anyone can post an event about anything and the sidebar on the homepage will keep track of it. (Used to be for just games, but I expanded that.) Or we can host files too. Anything at or under 32 MB can be freely attached to a post on the forums. If the file is much bigger, I may consider hosting it here as well.

It's all happening.

Dont worry, its not that I dislike it here or anything. Had you ambushed me on the street and asked me what forum I would most likely attend, I would have answered here.

The problem is Discord does a pretty good job of giving me my daily social fix. Of course it's an awful option for simultaneous multi-topic conversations, but I don't find myself in those very often anyway.

No my absence is entirely from my online habits being what they are, and not that this place is lacking in anyway. If I'm not mistaken, I have it within the top 5 bookmarks on my bookmark list, but I barely use my bookmarks anymore. Modern browsers put your most frequent sites on your home page, and I've fallen into just clicking those.

Also I listen/watch a lot of content on YouTube, and since I have wireless headphones, I can walk anywhere in my house, and even reach the street when taking out the trash and still hear what is playing. To participate on a forum, I have to anchor myself to my screen and keyboard, and I'm just not doing that much as I used to.

One thing I have going for me now is I got a new job, cell phone, and cell plan. My work is extremely stingy on what I can do with the internet, so I get to use my (now) unlimited phone data to burn my spare time each day... there's been a lot of it. That means I have to type with a shitty phone screen, but I can spend time here too.
