Hey guys! I feel like there's a bit too much negativity in the world right now, so I figured I would try to spread some positivity! Tell me something wonderful that has happened to you, because you're playing WU! It can me something small, or something big. It can even be more than one thing :)

I'll go first: Because of WU, I've found a small wonderful community that I can be a part of, both in person, and in forum (ahem, thank you all for being so wonderful) ⭐️

PS: Sorry if I posted this to the wrong part of the forum... 😅

    I noticed the family XP has been boosted tonight which will help with scrolls and runes. It does seem that they’re trying to fix problems.

    Just not Dances With Dummies. It’s still broken. That and the high resistance/departure rates and spell energy are the frustrating parts.

    These are all easily fixed by Niantic, should they choose to fix them. It’s a pretty good game. Could be as good as Pokemon Go with some tweaks and fixes.

    @Overflow4487 I've never done personal travel alone, just lots of work related travel. I'm excited for you, and can't wait to start doing the same thing! There are several vacations I look back on that I took with friends or family and I think to myself, "Man, I probably would have had a LOT more fun by myself, being able to just do the things I wanted to do."

    @AuroraKadavra thank you so much for tagging me and for the very kind words about the HPWU group members. 😊

    @JulieJubz thank you for starting this thread. I really needed it, today.

    My husband died 8 years ago, by suicide. I found him. Since his death I've got a great case of PTSD and social anxiety. On top of my narcolepsy and hand-me-down depression, things are difficult most days. Ingress really helped get me out. I started while it was still in Beta, so I was there through SO MAN issues and bugs that made you want to throw your phone across the park. LOL It was terrifying, but I pushed and found a great community that always included me, even when I just couldn't leave the house.

    I didn't find the same type of community with PoGo. Oh well, can't win em all.

    While I haven't gotten the same with WU yet, I got something equally as good; the amazing people here. You all are always available with tips and advice, encouragement, creativity and surprise.

    I read some of the negative things others say here and I yell at my phone, "But look at all the amazing art, the great storyline, the mystery, all the activities!!" I rarely respond to those posts unless I can figure out how to respond in a constructive and encouraging way.

    Sorry for this reply getting all depressing and long. 😁

    @SamuelHaight ive just seen this as came back to post something. My heart goes out to you on what must be such a daily struggle. Ptsd is so debilitating & ive found that u guys here just cheer me up & even if ive not been up to real world socialising that day, ive chatted a bit on here & shared my love of this game & the positivity it brings me. Keep fighting the good fight & i hope this forum & game continues to bring you a sense of happiness.

    @LeFayeofAlbion you too, keep fighting, i know its exhausting, today i did my fortress while daughter at appt. Then im back under blanky on couch in a couple of days now anxiety attack. No way id have been leave the house today, but come 7pm il b out there for the brilliant event starting, even for a short while. So my love of Harry Potter is saving me as an adult like Enid Blyton books saved me as a child lol. I've just realisd that sounds really sad for someone in late 40s lol 😂 hey ****.

    So the positive i wanted to add- i mentioned in a previous thread how was try work on hubby to get him come pottering with me- its finally happened!! He tried install on his s7, wouldnt load, update buggy, but his phone **** too. So his s10 arrives today & we're out tonight! Yay! Huge progress & again life changing. More time 4 us together!

    My youngest has also loved playing for me thru the summer hols- the game can even bypass moody teen mode! 😂

    @Dogoutlaw Thank you so much for sharing. Please know our hearts go out to you, your husband and family. I often find gaming on my phone a much needed distraction at times, and I'm glad your husband is discovering the same during this difficult time. Hugs!

    Oh my gosh! There's some responses here that I had not seen before! I'm so sorry.

    I absolutely love reading everything everyone has to say. I will totally catch up with it this week. I've been a little scattered brained lately... I stopped eating meat almost entirely (cold turkey) and my energy has plummeted (probably an iron deficiency, lol).

    But I shall muster some energy because I love you guys and totally want to catch up on everything, both good news and sad news and ok news and such ❤️ But it makes me so happy that this thread is alive again!

    I'm quite new to this forum, but I've enjoyed playing the game every day.

    I have been so happy to make wizarding friends! I'm part of a wonderful group of players that get together every week to play. I have Meniere's Disease -- lots of inner ear/ balance problems -- and my wizarding friends totally hold on to me and keep me standing up straight when my balance isn't the best. I also love the exercise I get playing.

    I've been lurking here for a while and it's nice getting to know you all.

    Play on!

    @NursePoppy Hi, welcome. Sounds like you have a great "supportive" group of friends. Know you have us here too.

    Because of WU as well as their promotional trailers, it inspired my passion for filmmaking to make this fun little mockumentary about “Life as a Wizard YouTuber” on my channel @ AndyTranFilms
