VGChartz (and some other forums) taught me that there's no point in getting in a argument/debate with someone because in the end it results in a total waste of time and energy.

I guess I can apply it in real life as well because of that.

Also ironically, years ago I would want to be social with as many people but the conversations often turned awkward (at least in my point of view, there's a lot of weirdos on the internet and even here lol).

So I guess you can say VGChartz and other sites taught me not to be as open/sociable with people on the internet because there's far more bad actors than there are good people.

I guess you can apply that everywhere in this world and not just the internet.

All this helped me motivate me for improving myself instead of having to depend or spend time and energy on other people. (Though I guess you can say it made me more self centered lol - but I dont see that as a negative for myself).

So I'm in a better place now than I was in the last decade.

Edit: As for why I still visit this forum, I guess you can say its nostalgia (reminds me of a old Anime forum I visited back in 2006 where I was active in 2006-2007 - I would visit every now after that and then but it eventually closed in 2010) , but I'm not as active on here as I used to.

I like the slow pace that it is now compared to what it was before and only post in specific threads instead of all them like I used to.

Being on ResetERA reminded me of the discord chats, conversations were many and went on too fast (and how pointless the conversations were most of the time). I just visit ERA for news about games, anime, movies, etc and dont really engage with anyone there either.

This place is like ERA but to a way smaller example - say comparing a ocean and a pool lol.

Willing to ride it all out until the end even if my conversations dont lead me anywhere on this site.

Regardless, I see myself as a guest just visiting temporarily for nostalgia sake than a long time active member of the community who wants to engage with other users.
