Hi, if you haven't noticed, I haven't been here for quite awhile now. Well, pretty much here's why (And why it was a good thing)
It all started pretty much when I became admin here. I honestly felt like the leadership sucked here. I really did. All sorts of vandals were running rampant on this site, and I felt like nobody but me was doing anything about it (Which I've came to terms with the fact that's not a true statement). I soon became addicted to making this place "good" or in reality: "make this place mine and make it good by my way". I'd grew angry toward some users, I really had a grudge against Jacob, mainly because I thought he was a troll that was socking and harassing/stalking Don. I realize now that Jacob wasn't anything I blamed him for. I was also annoyed with Chad. While I felt like he was cool and all, deep down there was something making me deeply annoyed with him. Greed and Jealousy. I heard he was student council back at his home, and deep down, I never really have liked student council. He seemed to me (through my bitter jealous mind), he was a rich kid who got whatever he wanted. Yeah, I was a snob to accuse him of that. My dads new job is paying him $22 an hour, so I can't honestly say I financially suck, but we're in lots of debt. You think I was bad yet? Not a chance. My grandfather has had diabetes since he was 18, and is now 76. He had to have his lower-right leg removed, and it really burned me to see a guy like him lose a leg. Not only that, I was moving from my house. Living with my mom's parents is very....errr, I'll say challenging. They constantly bicker with each other, and I personally feel it's strained my relationship with family, friends, and you guys too. My dad started working July, and I didn't get to see him until weekend's, which really burned me. But I'm just making accuses, right? Ehhh, maybe, but this stuff intensified my mood. I'd come to the point where the only thing I'd do is sit on my Kindle for 6, 7, 8, 9 hours straight editing this place. I'd really become insane, and I reasonable blame Wikia (still). Soon, I wouldn't even be able to say anything nice to my mom or sister. I really was a douchebag. Then the day came...
It seemed like a regular day, and my mom had enough. She took my Kindle & iPod away for a month. Well being the pigheaded fool I was, I fought her. I shouted back, and screamed at her, it was bad.
After 6 weeks away from Wikia, I can honestly say I'm a better person. I don't fight my mom anymore (Though my sister is something that hasn't stopped). I don't feel that bitterness toward Chad anymore, I've come to realize all people are on Wikia. Rich people, poor people, American's, British, Malaysians, emos, etc. The list goes on, it's the World Wide Web, meaning ANYONE in the world can be on here. I don't think of Chad as a rich, arrogant, little prick. I feel no bitterness toward him, or Jacob, or even Berry (long story with him). My point is, if you feel obsessed with Wikia, I ask you take a break. Don't become a pigheaded, arrogant loser like I was, you have people that love you. The last thing you want to do is have those people that love you turn there back away from you. Wikia is a place that can be a feeling of accomplishment, a place you can feel welcomed to. But it's addictive, and if your addicted to Wikia, please Stop yourself. Thanks, peace Dragonknight86 (talk) 00:15, October 6, 2014 (UTC)
I agree with you completely Dragon, but one small thing about the first part was I adopted the wiki in the first place because I really care about the DM franchise and also because I noticed the vandals. If it wasn't for me really, this whole wiki would be a huge mess and none of the current staff on here would of been promoted. But I agree that you really helped make a huge change on the wiki. Well done, fellow minion!

I completely agree. I was just pigheaded to think that you guys did absolutely nothing to this place. For me to be like that was wrong. It was also wrong of me to accuse Chad of being a "rich kid". I shouldn't have let my inner hatred of student council make a wrong impression of Chad. Chad really is one of the coolest people I've met on Wikia (Along with you, Jenson, Sparks, Amir, and Scrap). But yeah, I felt I kinda had to explain myself to everyone because I don't want others to strain relationships with everyone who cares about you.
