NewbieModder:
Hello. My name is NewbieModder, and I am a now a Keep-Aholic. It used to be so simple...so innocent....I'd visit the Phrozen Keep just to get stuff...then came the forums, so many months ago...At that point, things got so much more sinister. I'd check the forums daily, or even more then that, reading about breakthroughs I didn't even care about...

About 9 months ago, I managed to quit. No slow dropoff, just a sudden stop from using the Keep. My Diablo II playing also stopped at the same time, just for safety. But then, about a month ago, I was out of games to play, and I found my LOD disk. I installed many of the mods I used to play, and my friend and I (WaffleMaster) started playing DII anew. But soon, I was drawn in again by that evil link...those evil forums...

Now I check the Phrozen Keep Forums all too often, It's spiraling out of control. Sometimes I open a webbrowser window for no reason, and check the forums, even though I had just finished checking the forums minutes ago. I've learned hex editing and ASM, something I thought I never would. This gives me even MORE things to read about on the Keep. And now Wafflemaster is starting to be drawn into this neverending spiral. And I'm afraid there's no end in sight...This addiction cannot be stopped once it starts....The inevitable can only be delayed...


Wafflemaster:
Hi, my name is Josh, and I'm a Keep-Aholic. I've been addicted for about a month or two now. I remember back a year or so ago, when my friend NewbieModder and I would just visit the Keep forums every day or two, to see if anything happened that concerned us. We would then resume our merriment, playing Diablo II, and having a generally good time being immature.

But now.... things have changed. I find myself closing my Internet Explorer browser only for the sake of opening a new one, to see if any new posts have been made within the last half-second. Also, I've adopted an obsession with emptying my Recycle Bin, thanks to my new-found addiction to the Keep forums. My new computer routine is check forums, empty Recycle Bin, check forums, empty Recycle Bin, repeat, repeat, until finally I pass out, head slumped over my keyboard, my hands suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.

I know that deep down, the little voice telling me to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather is right.... but if this is wrong, then I don't want to be right!


JBouley:
I guess this means I'm the D2 site equivalent of a drug dealer or liquor store owner.


Brother Laz:
I know that no one posts during European daytime, and y'all are merrily snoring at 2-8 AM USA time, but that does not stop me from constantly clicking Refresh over and over, and sneaking away between courses to check if any updates have been made, and sitting at the Who Is Online screen for hours to see if anyone is posting anything.

Come to think of it, in the last year and a half I've spent more time here than at my actual RL friends. :-) Go figure.
