Your wife asks you to water the flowers while she's away, and all her plants die because you thought she was reminding you to keep up on your couch potatoe and magma peas...lol

That was my misunderstanding

I've played for 2 years and have 2 max characters. I don't know if that's a lot of time compared to others, but I've done nothing on that list and I have felt like I play this too much.

One way you've been playing wizard to much is when you are looking at the message board when you should be paying attention at school. (that's me right now)

I mean, I'm not sure if I actually do/ will do any of these things, but let's give it a shot.
Well, I'm a Theurgist so....
-You fuss about style over buffs(I do this in pretty much every game with character customization).
-You don't get outside much.
-When casting a spell, you take the nearest pen and make the symbol, thinking that it'll prevent the spell from fizzling.
-You're convinced you have magic powers.

When you or your son asks for allowance to be paid in crowns.

When buying something in a store only because it had a 20% off "sales" trap on it.

When you're fishing in real life and when you catch a fish you just stand there waiting for it to float toward your face.

When you play you say stuff like "don't fizzle don't fizzle don't fizzle aww...." "cpu I can tell you're preparing something" "ha! in your face!"

You space out in random places and make typing motions with your fingers.

I'm guilty of some of these but I won't tell you which.

Here's a few i can think of, i probably said these in an earlier post, but i can't remember, been awhile since i've been on the message boards.

1. Find a Wizard101 themed costume for Halloween

2. Say places in Wizard101 instead of in the real world for geography.

3. Playing another game, say either plz fizzle plz fizzle or plz don't fizzle plz don't fizzle

4.Spend all of your money on Wizard101 instead of important things.

5. Forget the spelling of thanks, please, your welcome, ect. from the abbreviations in the text chat

6. When all of your friends are online

7. When all of your dreams are associated to Wizard101

8. You forget to do your school work if you're home schooled.

9. Try to collect bobble-heads that look just like the ones in Wizard101

10. Try to come up with how to know if you've been playing to much Wizard101

11. You get a lot of your reading from the Wizard101 message boards

12. You run out of room to write on the message boards.

13. You are well known on the message boards

14. Your list for how you know you've been playing to much wizard101 is long and everything on it you're guilty of

That's all i can think of and if i posted something someone already said i'm not trying to steal it, i just don't have the patience to read all of the posts.

Remember, life isn't just about Wizard101, there are more important things out there that need to be done instead of sitting around and playing Wizard101 for the rest of your life

Diary of a Wizard (a now closed fansite) has a wonderful post from Postcards from the Spiral about the Top 10 Ways You Know You’ve Been Playing Too Much Wizard101

TOP TEN WAYS YOU KNOW YOU’VE BEEN PLAYING TOO MUCH WIZARD101
(As if there IS such a thing!)
10. You’ve convinced your child/parent/significant other to create their own account so that you can battle together.
9. You’ve purchased a new computer so that people in your house can play together or play online at the same time.
8. You’ve set up a wireless network, after procrastinating for at least five years, so that people in your house can play at the same time.
7. When driving or riding in a car, you keep looking at the dashboard for a yellow arrow to tell you which direction to go and how many more steps until you get there.
6. When you reply to a text message sent to your phone, you press the “r” key and don’t understand why you don’t immediately see a text box.
5. You’re on a first-name basis with the employees at your neighborhood 7-11 (or wherever you buy Wizard 101 gift cards).
4. The employees know the name of at least one of your wizards, and ask you which wizard will get the pet from this particular gift card.
3. You’ve had a dream about leveling up.
2. You’ve had a dream about Merle Ambrose summoning you to his office (bonus points if he does NOT have a yellow exclamation point over his head).
1. You’ve had a dream about Wizard 101 announcing a seventh chair will be available in each player’s classroom, and you rushed to your computer the next morning to finally start a wizard from the seventh school on your account.

The only one I would add would be you see a stick on the ground and think -ooh! Mistwood!

Thank you both for the article and we encourage our players to list their own below!
Ya i think i'm addicted to wizard101 then! My cousins and I love this game!

OMG ALURA!! Lol!!! One time I said really low "aye you aye ya" (the phrase the seraph says in the spell or at least it sounds like it ) to myself, and the person who sat next to me looked at me funny and I just said "What?" Lol and another time when my teacher said the word "Balance" in science class, I ALMOST said "Am I ready to learn Ra professor (whatever the balance teachers name is, I forget) ? Luckily I stopped myself before I could start making the sound judgement makes when casted. "AHEM!!!" Lol I love that spell
Dude! i totally have done that before! i was even pretending to be the judgement by holding a balancer in one hand and a pencil in the other! One time in social studies we were listening about floods and i blurted out loud, i know i beat him but does he really have to flood us? My teacher was like ????????? and my friend that also plays W101 busted out laughing

Some ways to know you have been playing Wizard101 too much:

You constantly come back to this post to make another list
You can't sleep because you're making yourself too excited by thinking of Wizard101
You fail your math test cause you were thinking about Wizard101 during the huge review
You feel uneasy when your subscription runs out
You freak if one of your younger siblings or family members even touches one of your precious wizards
Everytime you get a new spell you take a picture of it appearing to you on your phone or something
When your parents tell you to get off the computer you have a heart attack
Your dad keeps telling you that your lazy and to go outside
You fantasize about somehow winning permanent membership or unlimited crowns
Your siblings tell you to stop talking when you keep rambling about something in Wizard101
You type way faster then you ever did before you began playing
You think of waking up early or in the middle of the night just to play
Wizard101 is your only hobby
You watch videos on YouTube about Wizard101 even if you already have watched it
You think your dog is lame because it doesn't give you any extra stats
You try to hide your obsession with Wizard101 from your family and friends

Ok ok that's all for now

You know you play wizard101 too much when you see a severe storm warning on the news and you think "Why don't we just get a myth wizard to counter it?"

You act out the spells, think about new enemies, their ranks, and new spells. Like someone acting Goat Monk would do exactly what the goat in the spells does: 1. Pretend to jump on a flying ball, then 2. pretend to have a stick or use a foam stick to stab into the ball, 3. fall down into a platform, 4. spin your stick in pride, and then 5, suddenly jump from the platform, swinging your stick, then 6. smashing down into the opponent.

I feel you on #9, i always get yelled at for being in the dark. I love the dark so much, i can see pretty good in dark places.
So that means you can immediately see everything when the light quickly turns out? How long does it take for your eyes to adapt to the darkness?

Uh... Is it weird that I was so obsessed with the game I actually thought of my characters as real people and did things real people do, like look both ways before crossing the road and stuff?

How did I even get a dream about leveling up.
