Have You Ever Learned Anything Here?

Some of you have spent a lot of time on this site, maybe even years. Have you ever learned anything that's actually helped you, outside of gaming? I know that for me personally I've picked up some tips and tricks about life, especially in the flood. Then again, for 1 good advice you'll find about 30 stupid suggestions. However, I definitely don't think I haven't learned [i]anything[/i]. How do you feel about this? -hoobla-

  • Honestly, this site / forum / community has taught me a lot. In a lot of ways it's my 'beginning' to my life and journeys throughout my life. I've had friendships, relationships. It's taught me to spell more correctly and given me better grammar skills. It's taught me to calm the -blam!- down sometimes. I always used to get worked up over the most meaningless things possible, and now I am proud of who I am, and I honestly don't care to get all worked up over something. Only when I think about these things do I realize what this site has done for me. '05 member, and I'm still here in '13.

  • I always had great grammar for my age, but this place definitely excelled me in that field. Years of being ridiculed by ass-hats has shaped how careful I am when I speak as well. [Edited on 01.07.2013 5:03 PM PST]

  • My spelling/vocab is probably a bit better. I have come across some random sites/videos posted in the flood with some good nuggets of knowledge or useful tools. The flood kind of acts like a incredibly dumbed down version of BBC World News too.

  • I learned a lot about the human nature of an online public forum. And it's frightening, but amusing.

  • I'll admit something that might surprise people. A few sources linked in discussions on this site have actually found their way in to one of my uni essays ([url=http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/bigwideworld/2011/10/university-reform-a-flawed-experiment.html]1[/url], [url=http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/sci_edu/problem.html]2[/url], [url=http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~leonghw/Courses/cattywampus.html]3[/url]) Obviously you have to be a little more careful on an internet forum than with academic journals, but any place that people share information can be a potential resource.
