Hi there, I'm here to talk a little about my adventures using my email to make different forum and game accounts. I've got at least 25 different sites/games accounts over 5 different email addresses How did it get to this ridiculous number? Well like everyone else I used to be young, and somewhere between the age of 9 and 11 years, 9 being the age I got internet access, I've made lots of accounts on sites I really didn't need to and useless email accounts to boot, if I had only one at least it would had been all junk in one place. 2 years later at the age of 14 I've already started to feel I've made too much junk accounts, but didn't give it too much thought, I've updated stronger passwords with 2 numbers and 9 letters, albeit still the same password for everything, to all accounts in use at that time, definitively an update over using the password 123034 for everything , the first password my dad put on my PC . At the age of 16, once again the thought of junk email accounts was upon me and new reinforced password were devised, this time, proper password consisting of random numbers, letters and symbols, which are written in a notebook so I don't forget them, some important accounts were updated I've decided it was enough. At 18 I've updated password on remaining accounts, well those that I could still remember, as most were no longer in use for well, a long time, I've forgotten about them. Why all the password updates, why don't you delete your accounts? Because most sites don't offer you the choice of deleting your own account and some that do, require you to go trough lengthy support tickets. Now I've become rather paranoid about all the stupid times I've used my email address, Why did I need: 4 kongregate accounts, stupid me, who need 4 accounts for the same site? 2 armorgames accounts, and here I go again. Newground account, sight*, account I can't delete just for one game I barely played Forge of Empires account... probably a lapse in judgement, wasn't worth my time Battle.net account, again a whole account for one stupid game I've barely played GamersGate account, wanted to buy a game but it was very hard, Steam to the rescue Uplay account, a game required it, one game... sight* should had just used Steam Origin account, probably another game, can't even remember why I made it Newegg account, for fucks sake, they can't even deliver where I live, what was in my head? Pr0n account...........What idiot makes a porn account when porn is free to view!?, this idiot. and other accounts From all those over 25 sites/games I probably only need 3. Google, Steam and one for my mmo, which is worth it because I'm playing, will probably regret it in the future when I get bored or it fails. If anyone is interested my original email account used to get over 500 emails monthly So from all this I've learned to make an account only if I really need it and if there are no more popular alternatives. -Steam replaces anything of the likes like Origin, Uplay or GamersGate. -1 Kongregate or Armorgames account would had been enough, although, even that is up to debate as playing their games does not need account. -Accounts for any kind of MMO,FPS or the like, most likely useless, that thing will die out or you will get bored eventually. -If you can see it for free, give it a good thought before making an account, not referring only to pr0n here, I'm sure some of you watch free movies, and some sites that offer those movies give you the option to make an account, and for those that require you to make an account to watch, I'm recommending you to avoid them. Well that's it, I've learned from my mistakes a lot, hope you do also.
