You look for frosted drakes at cereal isle at the grocery store and ask the store clerk why they don't have frosted drakes.

You dress up as something wizard101 related for Halloween
You built a maze in your backyard to increase your pets intelligence
You tried crafting your own treats for your pets like hot and sour bits and misfortune cookies
You write a letter to the government asking if instead of president of the United States can it be headmaster of the US
You can't find Mooshu cheddar at the grocery store and flip out
You think the currency should be gold instead of dollars
You want to discover celestia so you jump into the ocean
You go to the bank and ask to buy crowns
You freak out and scream if you're about to be defeated (sometimes me LOL)
Your room is full of everything Wizard101
You make tons of these posts on this topic (ME!!)
You constantly ask your friends to play
You'd rather stay up all night playing than sleep
You search all over town trying to find the bazaar
Your growing tomatoes in your yard hoping that they turn into killer tomatoes
You argue to your teacher that aquila is Greece and that London is really marleybone
You don't want to go to a family trip to China because you think the plague oni is spreading disease there
You play so much that you're embarrassed to play in front of your family (OMG ME)
You think you know everything about the game
You ask your neighbor if they have any spare healing treasure cards.
You go around town looking for morganthe or malistaire
Hahah maybe I should stop there XD
Expanding on the first one...

When someone asks you for Frosted Drakes and you tell them, "Aisle 3 next to the Belladonna Crisps."

Also...

When you could swear there was a fictional character in literature named Pippi Longfizzle.

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!

1. After having your friends introduce you to it, show it to your family (3 cousins, 2 aunts, an uncle, my brother, and my mom and dad)

2. When you constantly are making references to it, until the people around you say they don't get it.

3. Last but not least; buying your friend a mastery amulet for their birthday, only for them to get the same amulet as a drop. Then you think that they nerfed the drop rate for a day or two, and farm for 3 hours to get one, but never do.

Guilty as charged :D

OMG I have done that while watching harry potter and I'm like,"That's Merle Ambrose" when I see Dumbledore. I've tried number 6... it didn't work. And I have a shrine to Professor Greyrose in my room.

Yeah once in school I was meeting up with my friend in the library, And she said she was there but I didn't see her so I'm like "Maybe we are on different realms" And she was completely confused cause she doesn't play Wizard101 but I found her so no worries. I honestly thought I was going crazy though.

One way you know you have been playing too much wizard101 is that if your always talking about getting a membership or crowns to your friend and you don't even talk to them about anything other than wizard101.

I thought of some more

1.You make the school symbols out of paper and hang them on string all over your house.
2. You run around with a stick saying "This is my (insert name of wand here) wand and I'm not afraid to use it.

3.You send TONS of spam to KI begging for 7 characters.

When you're at home, feeling like you got hit by a truck and throwing up every 5 minutes but you insist on whipping out your laptop and playing w101 because it's the perfect time to farm that boss for that amulet you wanted.
