I've thought this before, but lets look at it from the other viewpoint
In 20 years from now, WI might not be here. You might not remember everything about it. Chances are, though, that you will remember it was a fun pastime. That you had friends here. That you enjoyed it. Not everything is about doing something productive you know
It's just the same: You won't remember all your real-life friends. Will you still know you had a fun time? Yes. Will you remember that your talking and playing with them was worth it? Yes.
Sometimes we just need fun things in life
I understand what your saying, and I know it's sort of bad to sit in front of the computer all day (hehehe.. I do :/) but it's still fun. I find WI and WW a form of entertainment, just like some people find drawing, or painting, or soccer, or chess, or card games.
You got it?
Thanks for the great thread which lets us voice our opinions
Very well said indeed! *again using my British accent*
Agreed. But I don't really think of it as a waste. What does it matter how much Rep or Posts you have? (Even though the rep and stars you get for a certain number of posts ARE pretty). The only thing that matters is you had fun on WI. Also your friends that you made. I don't really think it matters how popular or how many pets you have, no. Yes I would get a bit angry after all the hard work put into my account if WI closed someday, but I still had fun and lots of memories. Good thread though. Gets people thinking.
I remember when this game I really liked, called VMK, closed. So many people got so angry about it and about how long they worked on their account.(Ok, maybe I cared a little...) I just cared about the fun times I had.
Now, I would get mad if WW closed. After all that money I spent on it.

not sure that i can agree with your interpretation of the poster. while it is true that the all the details won't necessarily matter in 20 yrs, the time you spent here will. whether you know it or not, time spent on WW and WI has taught you something and what you say/type has an effect on others. if both sites close, they may be gone but not forgotten.
i dont remember what i was doing 20 yrs ago, exactly. i have a general idea but i am confident that the things i was doing and the things that were around me are directly responsible for who i am today.
in another 20 yrs ago, i won't remember everything that i posted or everything that i read but i will have the memories. i am not spending my time here thinking of my status. i am spending my time here, enjoying it, helping others and even learning things. in 20 yrs, my memory of WI/WW will be enjoyable and usually time well spent. so, yes, it does matter and it will matter in 20 yrs.
that said, if one's time spent on WI and WW is all about status, your memories will be of competing and how well you did or did not do for your status. the memories might not be so good. i believe that is the true point of that poster: "Stop worrying about status, stop trying to impress others. Just be yourself and enjoy your time so in 20 yrs from now, you don't regret letting life slip you by".
P.S. backflip, please do try to remember that not everybody is capable of going outside and doing things elsewhere. some people spend more time at home bc they like to and others spend time at home bc they have to do so. in addition, there's no way of knowing if a person is on WI bc they are addressing any communication problems that they may have.
This comment: "You have one life to live, let's not spend our lives infront of a computer" could be hurtful bc it is judgemental, implies that the person is wasting their time on the computer and should find better things to do.
