I'm not great at a lot of crafts because I don't know anything about them.
Superb with clay though - made a giant 15'' h x 10'' w Egyptian urn using the coil method (no potter wheel) in the first go with clay during high school.
My teacher was like, "Wow I've never seen a noob do this before" and "I'm surprised you used the coil method so well" and got an A+, and the teacher used it for bragging rights for a few days before giving it back to me. redface

It's just based on my personality, I guess? (Virtuoso personality type)
If something interests me, I can wing it so well that people ask me if I'm basically trained at something - to which I'm not.
Also if I'm near a person that makes me feel competitive, I can basically blast them out of the water when I learn from what they're doing; when I'm not feeling competitive, I'm 'meh, whatever' about it and show either slight interest or disinterest and usually just walk away to find something interesting.
My competitive streak is really slim though, maybe like a 5% chance of it happening. sweatdrop

Knitting seems too laid-back for my tastes.
If anything, I'd be around the house doing other things - repairing and maintenancing bicycles, using my tool kit to fix up stuff around the house, painting shelves, measuring distances and charting it on graph paper, and spending my time on Gaia.
Also since it's a bit of a repetitive piece of work, I'd get bored and move on super quickly. sweatdrop
I'm more guy-ish, so I'd rather something with more energy in it, like playing tennis against someone. sweatdrop

Speaking of other crafts - I've tried clay modeling - my mom never gives me alone time, so each time I buy clay, it ends up in the trash.
(She has no hobbies besides watching TV so she doesn't understand.) sweatdrop
I'm not great at painting - again, it's a patience thing.
If it came to splatter painting, I'd probably go at it like an angry sword wielder. lol

Nah it's ok, knitting isn't my kind of thing.
It requires extreme patience and can be repetitive (like, making lots of long scarves and such.)
As a person who does something for a short period of time before bouncing off to the next subject, and the next, it'd just be another unfinished project for 5+ years in a corner. sweatdrop

I stay away from knitting, that's definitely not for me. talk2hand

Me + anything similar to a string = augh what happened how did i get caught in this tangled mess emotion_0A0
Sometimes I've been in situations where a yarn thread ended up with me getting tangled up on myself, the ball of yarn, and I don't even remember the other objects - but I had to seek help.
In my defense, it started it.
...It also won the fight. emo

I'm not really that great at it myself, but I do it just because I feel like it.
People: "You'll get better! Years of practice!"
(Years later - my art is basically the same.) lol

I've only got one image on Imgur, and that's me in my signature. XD
I was recently into the site to check it out and left it at that for now.
My DA account is mainly screenshot images and my drawings.

Wow, that sucks.
Stupid photobucket, ruining everything great. emotion_donotwant / emo

I just tend to look around in Google at images, then use URL pasting because I'm a cheap know-nothing when it comes to coding.
Years ago (before my old computer died) I was great at coding profiles.
Now - next to nothing, and it frustrates me so much that I can't even make a single successful attempt.
And without Photobucket, that's sucky, but I've been moving images over to my DeviantArt account, so it's not too much of a setback for me - it'd be online, at least, if I needed one of my own images.

I basically wear anything that I can make an outfit with.
If I can't make an outfit with a freebie, then I get rid of it.
I had to dress as an inhuman person because it was the old clan's rules, so I was usually a cat or a monster.
After I left the old clan, I made this outfit and decided to give up clans and go on my own, mainly.
My tastes are basically the same as they were ten years ago when it comes to clothing. XD

Cargo shorts + t shirt, ripped up pants + t shirt, elephant pants + t shirt, punk/goth pants + t shirt.
T shirt's logo or design depends on the pants.

I joined a day after my sister, so I don't remember when that was unless I look at her account. XD

My ringset:
Guns, Solar Rays, Slash, Hack, Bandage, Defib, Coyote/Teflon Spray/Meat, Divinity
Guns - fast recharge rate, mid-distance
Solar Rays - medium recharge rate, mid-distance
Slash - slow recharge rate, attacks multiple enemies (enemy group around bosses)
Hack - slow recharge rate, attacks single enemy (high rage for bosses)
Four attacks at once = faster Stamina drain
Bandage - self heals over time, fast recharge, fast rage builder
Defib - mainly for working with others, super slow recharge - has next to no importance for me to bring along anyway
Coyote/other - effects vary; Coyote - loot gain + footspeed, Meat - higher health (bosses,) Teflon Spray - reverse damage + armor, recharge rates vary
Divinity - at full Rage, boosts Stamina faster.
My ringset goes through Stamina quickly, builds the Rage meter quickly, and builds Stamina quickly.

I usually run past people and buff them when I am upping my Rage meter to go fight. XD
I used to teach people how to play zOMG! but it's been forever, and lately, there is next to no one there.
I remember when servers were so full, it started booting people out. emo

I'm the same way with shopping - if it isn't on the list, it's time to improvise. XD

I just wait until Gaia gives up some free GC, like a mangy mooch. sweatdrop
Plus I'm a hoarder of RIG items so yeah.
Freebies hoarder. XD

I know a bit about rings and their abilities, and lots of other information - consider me a dictionary, for the most part! emotion_awesome
Mainly I'm a solo player and go anywhere alone, but also I run around buffing people and throwing myself into others' crews whenever I feel like it, since I also revive people.

I've been on here almost nine years, I think. emotion_0A0
Joined in late '08. XD
My looks have been all over the place - inhuman beings galore, monster themes, and then this one, and then Shadow, and then tons of other outfits since then.
I've got outfits galore - so many, I put them on my mule accounts because I couldn't afford to buy new closet space. sweatdrop
Maybe I could convert Platinum back to Gold and try buying more spaces...

Basically how I feel about shopping!
Let a person know sooner so I don't have to try guessing some replacements. XD

I never know what to get anyone, and no one ever knows what to get me.
It's like a four-way stick-up: Nobody makes a move until everyone gets a list, otherwise everyone is lost and thus screwed. XD
I wish I could have 'me' time for making crafts (although again I don't know how to do crafts.)
My mom's never been an artsy person, so anything to do with crafts is beyond her, and she doesn't understand that crafts take time and effort.
...I don't make deadlines ever because there never is a finish to anything. sweatdrop

Well, those were the prices before the Platinum that I was getting.
10k for tips from others, and whatever small prices from selling cheap junk in my stores.
But now, cheap junk that was usually 1g is now 10 mil each.
Although looking at it from a different light... It's still basically 1g in Platinum standards.
I heard Gaia was going to make everyone switch eventually anyways, so I figured, might as well move on now than later and just get used to it.

I'm not sure what the payout is for zOMG!
It only shows me one giant gold coin that says '1' on it. XD
(I haven't looked into that yet.)

If you ever need help in getting around zOMG! I wouldn't mind at all. emotion_c8
When I'm in there, I'm always wearing this outfit - it's easiest to recognize, since I've been wearing it in zOMG! for pretty much eight years. @-@'
(This was my original Clan outfit for zOMG!, and my first dream avatar.) emotion_kirakira

I always say I should start Christmas shopping this time of year.
I always end up shopping in November... sweatdrop
It's super helpful that you know what people want, and that you can make it yourself. emotion_0A0
I have to wait on lists from last-minute list-makers, and I'm not great at making stuff, so I have to rely on stores to save my life. XD

I switched over to Platinum because of how much more I would be making per day.
My gold amount was about 7 mil.
Now I'm at almost 100 bil.

That's just from Runway voting, posting in forums, refreshing my page and all that.
When I was using Gold, it was basically next to nothing - 1g gold here, 10g gold there, 10k gold here and there.
I feel I'm making real progress for once - although MP's Platinum prices tell me otherwise, but it didn't help me out much in Gold, either.

What I'm wanting is 17,000+ Platinum per one (and I want a multiple set)
and all I got is 9,400 Platinum.

I know the feeling of needing money but not being able to spend anything.

I'm entirely staying away from real cash use though.
Christmas will be here before I know it. gonk

Yeah I haven't even looked around in the MP at prices for anything.
When I last looked at an item I was questing (in Gold) it's gone up at least 10x the price.
