  • People think that it is cool to smoke weed or snort cocaine on school grounds. It strikes me as odd that kids in middle school even do this kind of stuff. I really want to stop this but it would be to no

    • Dear Martin,
      I agree. Drug use should not be something that should be a problem for high schools and middle schools. It is one thing if people are doing drugs in their own time, but why do they have to bring all that bad influence and those poor decision making skills to school with them? I think it would be advantageous for parents, and community leaders to attempt to put an end to this sort of stuff.

    • Hello Martin,
      I agree with your piece and am shocked to hear that people do drugs at school! This seems very detrimental to the entire flow of school, leading to making yourself not totally there when you are supposed to be furthering your knowledge. I have yet to hear about this “black market” in the school place you are speaking of. I am actually pretty confused about this part of your announcement, please elaborate next time to avoid this confusion. I do see that there is a time and place for drugs correctly prescribed for you by a doctor and that they are a necessary thing in our world today. Don’t say that your efforts would not catch on! Follow your dreams Martin and change the way children nowadays view drugs!

    • Hello Martin,
      I am so shocked that people do drugs on school grounds, but it is true and almost every school has to deal with it. I honestly don’t understand why teens think it is a good idea to bring it on school grounds. I believe school should be a safe environment for everyone and should not have any bad influences. It might be almost impossible to end it with drugs being ‘cool’ in society, but one thing people can do is have their voices heard. I for one believe that drugs are a symbol of violence and there is nothing peaceful about it. Overall, thank you Martin for sharing this topic.

  • I am not saying it should be banned. I know that it has some benefits from it and that it’s just that people should be more cautious. I thank you for the consideration though.

  • I have no idea what you mean because that is exactly what I am saying “Too many kids are dying from it. Now I know that it isn’t niantics fault,”

  • Has anyone read the article that I have listed up there? Look it up if you haven’t. I give full credit to whoever made it.

    Anyways this I think was an ok concept of cows and chocolate milk, but I don’t really agree with it. First off, It really doesn’t make sense why or how we can do it, now it may for the person who published it.

  • Now don’t get me wrong,Pokémon Go is a great game. I have probably been outside a maximum time of 10 hours walking around my neighborhood. But my personal opinion for the game is not really great.

    Too many kids

    • This is my first post. Please comment if anything wrong

    • Dear Martin.
      I found your topic is very interesting saying how video games give a huge effect to human lives, especially Pokemon Go, but I think you should be more specific about how it gives influences to children and how you want Niantics to fix this problem.
      Personally, I don’t play Pokemon Go, but I realize this game also brings benefits to players that they actually spend time doing some exercise,not sitting in front of pc for a whole day, not much but less. In my opinion, it depends pretty much on people’s perceptions.
      My pleasure reading your article, I’ll look forward for what you’re going to post next time.
      Have a good weekend.

    • Martin- I think that this is a very interesting point of view of this game. I agree that it is a game that has caused a lot of accidents and many people have gotten injured as a result. But I believe that you need to add more evidence and facts to this post to make your opinion stronger and more persuasive. This is a good start but I think you can build upon it and make this a very influential piece of writing.

    • Dear Martin,

      I am interested in your post about Pokemon. The reason why is because I am a huge fan of Pokemon myself. I get what you’re trying to say but it’s the kid’s fault they are getting into trouble. When logging onto the game it says, “Warning, pay attention to your surroundings” so it clearly states to be careful when hunting Pokemon. Also, kids shouldn’t be even having a phone at a young age, but that’s a whole other argument.

    • I understand your concern about Pokemon go because I have expressed that in the past with friends and family. A lot of people are injured because they aren’t paying attention to their surroundings. However, it also has some good things. I know some people who have lost weight because Pokemon go is making them get out of the house and exercise. Do you think the game should be banned because of the injuries that have happened?

      • I am not saying it should be banned. I know that it has some benefits from it and that it’s just that people should be more cautious. I thank you for the consideration though.

    • Great job on choosing a really current, interesting topic for your first post! I think you have a really interesting point of view and I agree that it is unfortunate that this game has caused people to get hurt. I think by including more information and support to your claim, your piece would be even stronger! Something to think about is whether this negative would be worth it to completely change or get rid of the app.

    • I am so happy that you all have commented and that my post is in the 25 discussions. I do hope that I post again. Thank you all

    • Martin,
      I strongly think that you are right.
      I read an article about a wanted person who walked into the police office to catch a pokemon in pokemon go. I don’t know what that pokemon was but indeed I can see that its a costly one.

      So my point is that it is spoiling children. I never even tried playing it at the firs time; I would have got addicted to it.

      It has to stop. Not only kids but also adults. I saw many people in a college campus at night walking around catching pokemons. I personally thought that was insane.

      The company should do something about it. Like having the player set a timer so that they are aware of the time commitment they are making. Or putting up a disturbing sign as you said.

    • Dear Martin This post is very wrong it is in no way Niantics fault it is the player’s fault because on the loading screen it says to watch your surroundings and it gives several warnings.

      • I have no idea what you mean because that is exactly what I am saying “Too many kids are dying from it. Now I know that it isn’t niantics fault,”

    • Hey Martin,
      I understand the concern you have for the safety of players of this game. However, in my opinion, your solution is too simple and unrealistic. Seeing as this game is Niantic’s greatest success to date, it would be absurd for them to just purposely kill the game they worked so hard to create and promote. Instead, advise about player safety could be contained within the game, but to think that Niantic is just going to kill the game is foolish and unrealistic, and for that matter unfair even for the players of the game who have put so much time into it. It all really comes down to people themselves being more careful and responsible while playing the game.

    • i agree …. with your opinion

    • I don’t think you should blame pokemon go for childern dying while playing, it gives warnings and it is common sense not to walk into the street even if you see a rare pokemon. I agree it isn’t great but don’t blame the game for the players actions.

  • And…what is this about…not being rude about it😊
