Given the shitstorm that happened, seems like an expected move. Just hope every party can kind of move on from this. Twitch really looking bad throughout this whole thing though.
Edit : she literally just announced it on her twitch channel in an impromptu stream.
Edit2 : source
I tried to transfer $600 out of my Robinhood earlier (moving to Fidelity after all this is over, for obvious fucking reasons) and I got an error message. Tried it with three different bank accounts. No dice. It either gave me a "server error" message, or it told me that a bank had to be verified.
At this point I'm getting bad vibes, try to post my screenshot (still pending with the mods), and leave it for a minute. Come back later on my PC and try again. No dice. Then, I think, well, let's try it with $100 instead of $600.
And it lets me withdraw.
OK, we'll try a bigger number.
Now I'm sus, so I fire up OBS studio and screen record all of this shit as I go through and attempt to get it to let me withdraw any amount larger than $100. Nothing larger than $100 can withdraw, but $100 (and presumably lower) can. I kept going right up until I run out of daily withdrawals.
It looks to me very much like Robinhood is limiting withdrawals to $100 or less and pretending it's a server error.
This can't possibly be legal, and I don't know how it could be a server error. I'm not as strong on comp sci as I used to be, but 100 is a fucking int and 600 is a fucking int and they're both three digits and should require the exact same amount of computational power to transact/calculate/whatever.
Again, I have screenshots from my phone, and I took a screen recording as I went through and did this on my PC. Can anyone advise whether it is 1) possible that it is indeed a server error, or 2) if not, how it could possibly be legal? Cause like I said it still fucking looks to me like they're just not allowing us to get our money out.
EDIT: These funds were settled. They had not been invested in days and were marked as being withdrawable. And if they were unsettled funds, Robinhood would have given me a message to that effect, not a server error/bank needs verification message.
Give me 5 reasons not to. No? Okay, here we go.
I have a couple grand in available cash to withdraw on Robinhood. I tried withdrawing the whole amount and kept getting “server error” or “need additional verification on this bank account” error messages. I then tried to with draw $50 and it went through. Then tried to withdraw 2k and got the same messages over and over again. Then I tried to withdraw $50 again and it went through. Then tried 1k and got the same “errors”.
ROBINHOOD IS PREVENTING ME FROM WITHDRAWING LARGE AMOUNTS IF MY CASH! FUCKIN CRIMINALS.
Looks like they are insolvent. Anyone else having this problem???
Edit: Don’t worry I kept all my GME 💎🤚 🚀🚀🚀😈. I liquidated all my other stocks to get out of this criminal organization.
Edit 2: https://imgur.com/a/ee6LsdG I have had zero issues withdrawing to this bank in the 4 years I’ve had my Robinhood.
Edit 3: https://imgur.com/a/N0K4RNF They also hit me with this error.
It's that time of year again - several posts asking that admitted students withdraw from other schools early so that other students can take those slots. There's a lot of things wrong with this and I want to clarify them so none of you make a serious mistake.
1. Your applications and acceptances are yours. You paid the application fee, you did the work to warrant consideration, and you put the application together. Don't feel bad for other people who might get waitlisted or rejected. Keep your options open until you need to close them.
2. You aren't actually helping anyone. You can only take one spot at one college. Every top university will end up with full enrollment, like they do every single year. This is four years of your life and six figures of someone's money on the line - you owe it to yourself to make this decision based on what is best for you, not some random other applicant. That is not your problem and there is literally nothing you can do to help that person. Thinking you can is like helping the poor by not buying a lottery ticket, thereby increasing their odds of winning. It's silly.
3. Let colleges manage yield. Colleges admit people knowing full well that not all admitted students will enroll. They have a timeline for issuing acceptances, assessing enrollment, and addressing yield and the waitlist. They know way more about historical numbers and the current situation. You do not owe anyone else your spot.
4. Withdrawing early probably won't impact the waitlist timeline anyway. A lot of people say you should withdraw anyway so other students might find out their results sooner. According to former admissions officer /u/FeatofClay:
>I keep seeing this exhortation (that withdrawing helps waitlisted students get in earlier) on this community. I'm curious as to the source of this "conventional wisdom," and a sense of how many schools where this holds true.
>There were years in the past when we'd use the pattern of March deposits to try to predict May 1 deposits, and we might admit more people in March and April since we anticipated being down on May 1. However, we learned that the "signals" we got in March ended up being too unreliable to change our admit plans. We don't do that anymore. So whether you say "no" on March 20 or on May 1, that wouldn't change the timing of decisions for students who were still waiting.
And even if it does move the timeline up, that's not your responsibility.

There may never be a truer example of not your keys, not your coin.
Robinhood, which is literally named after a character fighting for the people, halted customers from buying GME shares but would let them sell it.
They also forced people who are leveraged into liquidating their accounts.
They don't give a single fuck about you and would burn their entire customer base and goodwill down than stand up to the 0.1%.
Theyll come for your bitcoin next.
Close your account and transfer everything off it, don't say no one ever warned you.
I’m seeing a big influx of new users asking questions about where to buy their first bitcoin or ethereum and how to store it. I didn’t realize this before, but mega corps such as PayPal, Robinhood, and Wealthsimple do not allow their users to actually withdraw their crypto to their own wallet. You only have the option to buy and sell the coin on their platform. This is terrible for the community and not at all what cryptocurrency is all about. These companies are basically creating gated communities where they are profiting from pure speculation, and is detrimental because if you buy on these platforms you will never have the ability to actually hold your own coins. Ethereum is also a utility coin, for you to actually interact with the Ethereum network you need Ether. If you are never able to withdraw the coin, how will you ever interact with the network? You’ll never be able to try out these new Defi projects, stake your own coins, or try out any of the cool new Dapps that will for sure come out in the future. You will end up in the same place which spurred satoshi to invent BTC in order to avoid, which is having an entity or a government that can take away everything you own at any moment. They are also creating a system where they are taking your money to buy more BTC/ETH but they never have to sell their holdings.
##Why is giving your money to these companies a bad idea? If you are giving your money to these type of companies, then you are fundamentally misunderstanding the value proposition of BTC/ETH and are making an uninformed and bad investment decision. You are investing in the downfall of the community. You may make money in the short term, but the long term prospects of you surviving in this space is low, and decrease the potential for the market as a whole. The reason why Bitcoin was invented in the first place is so that people can transfer value over the internet without corrupt government or malicious companies being able to take that away from you. By giving money to these companies you are basically signaling to the market that you don’t understand the value of BTC or ETH at all, and you’re just here to try to make a quick buck. This in turn gives the mega corps more money to market to other newbies that are trying to make a quick buck and the cycle continues. These mega corps will end up dominating the market, and perhaps get to the point where they have unnatural influence on the direction of the chain. We may just end... keep reading on reddit ➡
Not sure which is better...anybody with experience?
Edit: I’m 32. I worked that job for 6 years. I thought I might go back so I left the money alone. Now I know for sure I wouldn’t go back
Edit: thank you for the feedback and also the award! I’m indecisive so this helped a bunch...I will go through when I have time and respond more!
Via the American Kratom Association (AKA) press conference held today, the Department of Health and Human Services had withdrawn its recommendation back in 2018 to the Drug Enforcement Administration that kratom become a Schedule 1 Drug.
The HHS initially recommended kratom be put on Schedule 1 in 2018, making it just as illegal as LSD and heroin. Despite reports in November of 2018 that HHS was recommending Schedule 1 for kratom, the HHS apparently withdrew the recommendation in a letter stamped “Aug 16 2018”.
From the AKA press release:
"Congressman Mark Pocan (WI) and Congressman Morgan Griffith, in exercising their oversight responsibilities over the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), discovered that on August 16, 2018 HHS had rescinded the request for the kratom to be classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA)."
It’s unclear why this information wasn’t released sooner, or if anyone at these agencies were in violation of the law.
I know for a fact that this has been posted before, as it pops up multiple times every year. Still, a lot of people haven't done it. If you got into your first choice school(s) early, withdraw your applications to any schools you wouldn't select over those that you've gotten into. The impact of it really adds up.
Here's some very rough math: Suppose 100-200 people from our school apply ED/REA/EA to their 1st/2nd/3rd choice schools. Roughly 30-40 get in, and for 20 - 25 people this is one of their top choice schools. Around 10 might withdraw from all their schools, leaving 10 - 15 who are still applying to other schools. Given that 50 - 60 people from our school get into UCLA/Berkeley, 5 - 10 people from the pool that didn't withdraw could get in, potentially taking away the spots of 5 - 10 on the brink of getting in.
If you were accepted ED/REA, kudos to you! You're almost done, but please, please, please remember to withdraw your application to other schools to give the rest of us a chance; By withdrawing, someone in this very sub could get into their dream school :)
I am going to file a report now to https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/#/ I have waited enough and I think this will help. Please y’all should report Coinbase to https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/#/ if they don’t want to give you access to your funds. 😡😡😡😡😡
I hope that you look at this post and think: bruHHH chill I withdrew my other apps three weeks ago
If you look at this post and think: aw shizzzzz I forgot to do that, I’ve provided an email template:
Dear XYZ Admissions,
I appreciate the opportunity to apply to your institution but I have decided to withdraw my application.
Sincerely, You (your birthday)
REMEMBER: your safety school may be someone else’s dream school! Please do this as soon as possible!!!
Have a nice day ;)
Edit: waiting for financial aid from your ED school is an exception
I kinda hate those posts. “I took x amount of drug for x amount of days. Will I go into WD?” Like a bunch of ppl online will be able to give a clear answer.
This is really serious. They claim CAAM-HP was just their secondary accreditation and that it didn't matter but CAAM-HP was their only WFME/ECFMG recognized accreditation. Their students will no longer be eligible to sit for the USMLE Step exams or apply to American residency programs unless their other accreditation, GMDC, becomes recognized by WFME/ECFMG very soon.
SGU likely withdrew from CAAM-HP because they've been on probation for a long time now and probably would have failed reinspection as it is regarded as the stricter organization compared to GMDC.
You should never apply Caribbean in the first place but this is even more reason to not apply - and specifically not to SGU.
What an absolute joke of a platform. I'm glad I experienced this early on and learned my lesson. From everything I'm reading online, Kraken has apparently gone down literally every single crypto rally since it's opening. As in there has not been a single crypto rally where Kraken did not go down during the most critical moments. Complete clown platform.
This isn't a crypto exchange. It's some weird dude's homemade project being run on toaster ovens as servers. Go read some of Kraken founder/CEOs tweets (Jesse Powell) and tell me if this is the kind of dude you want running an exchange that your money is on. Dude comes across as an immature, unhinged manchild. And all of the Kraken subreddits are created and moderated by the Kraken team so they have full control to censor and remove any posts they want. Wonder if they will delete this one. Absolute joke of a platform. Waiting eagerly for the servers to come back up (might take days), not so I can trade my crypto but so I can immediately withdraw and delete my account.
"Social Security defenders on Thursday celebrated news that the Biden White House has withdrawn a regulation pushed by the Trump administration that, if finalized, could have stripped disability insurance benefits from hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people."
"One of several attacks on Social Security the Trump administration attempted to complete during its final days in power, the proposed rule would have subjected some disability insurance recipients to more frequent eligibility reviews—a move that would have added another layer of difficulty to an already strenuous process aimed at determining whether beneficiaries still qualify for the program."
Here's a quick version:
Won about $9K on FanDuel. Attempted to withdraw $5500, got the screen that said my withdrawal will be here in 1-2 days. Great.
Next morning, my account is suspended. I still have three pending bets, each $1K for Thursday. One of the three hits, so I have around $2300 in an account I can't access, while a $5500 withdrawal remains pending.
Customer services say the Accounts Team is reviewing security issues, which makes no sense. Had no security issues when I was losing. And I made this account years ago when daily fantasy was all FanDuel featured, and I never had any issues. I only made bets from the state I am in, and never have made numerous accounts.
Now, today, I notice FanDuel/BetFair is refunding all the deposits I made in the last week. Meanwhile, customer service is saying the Accounts Team will reach out, but they have yet to do so, while they make changes to my bank account and refund my deposits. I still don't know what is happening with my withdrawal, or the $2300 in my account.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this happening? And should I notify my state's gaming control board of what is going on? This seems pretty shady.
