    Before, like during last year definately. Diablo II definately ruined my school grades, and an addiction to Battleforums lowered them a good bit too. Diablo gave me some bad debts that I'm paying even as we speak. :(

    In a way, I suppose it did. I remember, gr. 7 my grades were great, and that's the year I joined Battleforums. I got more and more addicted to it, and in gr. 8 my grades went down, and I had to work harder to keep them from going even lower.

    Recently, it's been internet in general and a lack of motivation to do homework that's been hindering my achievements.

    I can't do school anymore, I became to retarded to do school ever since I came to BF, so now I spend my days here at BF waiting for something good too happen to me which doesn't look promising at the moment.

    Induhvidual_1, thats easily possible

    Since I joined Battleforums?

    Just make a graph of y = x^2

    Let x represent the time
    Let y represent my school mark

    now Im doing well, but past 6 months or so was... man

    gr 9 ~ 10 easy to achieve avg of 85++

    11 I didnt achieve avg of 80+

    12 Im getting 93 now o.o

    I unfortunately have felt the lowering of grades due in part to the constant lack of sleep. that being so because I spent mine nights at BF for far to long. Alas I am weary of this game, and the constant bickering and the terrible erroding BF has gone through. Therefore it is my great pleasure to remove myself from such a distraction, les it consume me entirely.

    It is done. No more, no more/

    When I went to school, I never did homework and always got good grades.

    Now, university is a lot different. You don't do homework, but you work more at home than you ever did.

    Of course, BF and gaming doesn't allow me to do that much, so my average dropped a bit. Nothing I wasn't expecting.

    So, which one I vote, first or third?

    Apply the same formula, except make it Y = -(x)^2, excluding Quadrants 2 and 3 (x|x>0), where x is equal to the time (Where 0 is equal to the date I joined BF) and Y is equal to my grades, with 0 being straight A's.

    :(.

    yes it does lower my grades mainly because i get on durring class, and because i am totaly adicted to D2 and play it as much as i can, and i get up in the middle of the night to play it, and lack of sleep and lack of ambishon and being lazyer than hell

    :dance
