For me I’d say the IFC has changed me a lot. It’s definitely made me learn about being sensible online, when I first came here I was new to social media and the online community world. I did some random stuff that I regret and earnt myself like 3-4 official warnings and a suspension for 24 hours which made me into the happy and nice person I am today, always looking for ways I can improve myself.
I’ve built up friendships with absolutely tons of people here that I chat daily with (and hope to meet when this is all over depending on where they are… cough UK meetup Summer 2021 🥺🤭). Discord voice chats with locals such as Tsumia and Liam Kirk aren’t enough lol.
Also getting to know people globally, such as Thunderbolt, Suhas, Pingu, RTG113 (aka Rocco) and Leah. Not to forgot many many others that are as good and are really nice people. Just getting to know others lives across the world is cool, and being able to talk to someone about my passion where irl no one shares my interest locally.
To say that I’ve spent over 1,400 hours purely on this forum I wouldn’t say embarrasses me, nor would I call it an achievement. I’m here because I enjoy being here, and enjoy being with the people here.
