    I woke up this morning and when I went to wash my face, I got super dizzy and hot. I’m pretty sure I blacked out for a few seconds because my eyes shut and when I opened them my mom was crouched in front of me shaking me. So now I’m probably not gonna go to school. 🎉

    Sorry for the double status but I've been having some thoughts and only just got my finger on what exactly they are. I didn't really know why I took my little break but after people on foreign affairs talked about some of their problems I really started to figure out what was going on. Well, there were some personal things I wanted to fix, which I did, but I also realized some of those problems were caused by the same thing that caused the forums' problems, and I gave in.
    You see, the last straw, the nail in the coffin that made me take my break, was the profile picture thing. If you weren't online to see exactly what happened, basically me and a couple other people copied the profile picture of a certain user and mocked them a little. It was pretty harmless, but pretty toxic as well. That was when I got my first warning point in the last 2 years. That was when I knew there was a problem, I just didn't know exactly what problem drove me to some silly, immature, and kinda unnecessary joke.
    Older members have been leaving, which isn't a bad thing in itself, but new members have been taking their place. That isn't a bad thing either, but it can sometimes feel like they're overpowering good, wholesome content. Again, they have every right to post their creations, but there is a certain attitude among a lot of them. I keep feeling the need to say it, but none of this is anyone's fault. It was all happening kind of subconsciously, don't blame anyone for having a toxic attitude. Anyway, there are a lot of new users who I think just don't really understand criticism that well. It's okay to make bad content, it's normal. It is always possible to fix, and it should be encouraged to fix. But it seems like a lot of the newer users take emotional responses to people practicing this mindset. Criticism is always a good thing, and it kind of baffles me that anyone takes offense to any criticism. Whether or not it's good criticism is up for argument, but in any case, criticism should never be considered a personal offense, to you or your work.
    Still with me? Good, I'm just getting started. So this attitude, this attitude that implied criticism was worthless and that new users should be told they are perfect and that this attitude was the right attitude and that anyone who disagreed is just inherently rude, started to cause some problems. Older users who actually gave advice, sometimes jokes, couldn't help but feel offended by this new mindset. A lot of people were antagonized or invalidated, which only made things worse. These same older users felt the need to push their criticism further, getting more aggressive. After all, you can't really argue against the mindset of the newer users, so the only thing we know how to do is practice ours more aggressively. This escalated and only made it easier for new users to antagonize them, both sides thinking they're doing the right thing. This only created a very toxic atmosphere, with the divide getting bigger and bigger. Some new users felt the need to defend each other and gather together in groups, upvoting each other and downvoting others when there was a disagreement.
    There is more I could talk about that, but I'm pretty confident on the cause of some trivial things that piled up over the last couple months (more or less). This affected all of us, including me. I finally gave into the toxic atmosphere and I realized there was a problem I needed to fix. At the time I had no idea what was wrong with the community, so I just took a while off to refresh myself and think about all of it.
    In short, the whole community lost itself and made people feel unwelcome. The only change we can really make to fix it is personal improvement, nothing that can be encouraged. I think we all just need to kind of take a step back and keep an open mind to the input of other people. We're all important, and it's never healthy to invalidate other people, even if it's for the sake of helping yourself (yet still, in this case it does not help yourself).
    Happy day my friends.

    Today marks 100 years since World War 1 ended.
    I think that WW1 was, while not quite as destructive or large-scale as WW2, the most important conflict in the history of mankind.
    I'm honestly surprised that until earlier this year, I didn't really know or care about WW1, and my attention to it was limited to making jokes about WW2 being it's sequel.

    Hey friends, so I needa say something.
    The past few weeks I've felt to be in a really low place, and I don't know exactly why. I've felt like my mistakes are worse than they may really be, I've felt like my ideas are stupid. I guess I've felt kinda useless. But my point is that the forums and Discord haven't really helped with these feelings. So I'm going to take a short break from the forums and Discord for self-reflection and just to think about what exactly is causing it all. I might respond if you mention me on Discord but don't count on it.
    Y'all are great, I'll probably be back in a few days, maybe a week. Just need to clear my head for a bit.

    I guess I’ll do it now.
    Minecraft is a game I loved for years but recently I feel like Im either growing out of it or I just don’t like the way they are going with the game. Back when Microsoft bought Mojang I was optimistic nothing was going to change, that Minecraft would be fine but I think that was wrong. It seemed like everything was fine, Microsoft had no control over what Mojang does but behind the scenes I feel Microsoft has quite a bit to say in the development of Minecraft. But the real day Minecraft lost its charm was when it was ported to consoles. Yeah, sure call me a PC fanboy but I truly think this is when Minecraft truly started to go down hill. 
    Now let me tell you a little something. Back in the beta days we didn’t have snapshots, hell the first snapshots were beta 1.9 and only a select amount of people got to test those. There was a charm not knowing what is coming next, not knowing what new mobs were added, not what new ores were added. Even back before I joined the game, which was beta 1.7.3, there were these things called secret Friday updates and they would always be out of the blue on a Friday. What made these so interesting is no one knew about them or what was in them. Youd get home after school on a Friday and boom, update available. Redstone was actually added in one of these updates and you know how much that changed the game. I never got to experience these updates but Im sure they were a lot of fun. This sends me back to my point. During all the 1.13 snapshots I refused to know what was going to be added, it was an experiment I suppose. It was hard with everyone talking about it. I just knew a few things. The results to this little experience were disappointing. Sure everything was cool, an ocean update, people have been asking that for years but something just felt off. The things that were added, did they have any real use? Actually thinking about it, Minecraft always had items that served some sort of purpose in some way, big or small you could find a way to use almost everything in the game. I want secret Friday updates back, I want no more snapshots. I want to excited just to play the game again. I hope someone can agree to what I have to say, I don’t want to feel alone on this.

    This has nothing to do with mineimator, but I'm very excited! I didn't realize that there are affordable options for belt sanders available! I've been working in a foundry for over a year now, and I've often thought about how useful one of the Burr Kings we have there would be, but those things are $1,000-$3,000 at least. I was looking at dremels, and decided to look up belt sanders too. I found some less heavy-duty ones for $80-$130, so now I'm ecstatic! I make puppets, and I'm wanting to branch into making marionettes, so it'll be great! I don't need an industrial-grade sander, either, so the lower power won't be an issue. I'm really wanting to start making molds and castings too, soon; going to make things like puppet hands and maybe some miniatures.
