@  Fire Blazer : (18 March 2020 - 03:18 AM) hope everyone is managing ok...
@  kirant : (03 March 2020 - 05:41 AM) New challenger approaching!
@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)

#122265 How many Facebook/social networking "friends" do you have?

Posted by kirant on 24 May 2015 - 04:45 AM



Most of them are people I actually know.  About 10 are random people on the internet who just use "add friend" on everyone (and I just hit accept because god knows why) and about 5 are people that I know well because of forums

#121682 All time favorite game series?

Posted by kirant on 07 May 2015 - 03:31 AM

rest, no comment/response except for a little chuckle at "the good kind" of fan-service, lol

I think he means that it's not sexual fanservice but the type which relies on having the moments fans or would enjoy...stuff like saving Fafner pilots from their canon deaths, getting beautiful and intricate attacks, or hiding inside jokes are all aspects of fanservice which some might call "good" as compared to the oft discouraged sexual fanservice.

#120622 MyAnimeList Directory

Posted by kirant on 19 April 2015 - 04:49 AM

I scrolled through his

Wouldn't it have been easier to just do a ranking sort?


Anyways, here's my basic standpoint:

10 - Excellent and a masterpiece in my mind.  This is reserved typically for 1-2 of any medium for me.  For example, I know no film that I would give a 10/10 and there is probably only 1 game I could give that to.

9 - Extremely solid, probably one of my personal favourites

8 - Great, quite enjoyable, but there are certainly strong reasons I might not have enjoyed it all.

7 - Good but has notable flaws

6 - Reasonable but certainly not for everyone (and I'm one of those people probably).

5 - Average

1-4 - Varying levels of below average to terrible.  I tend to not use these as much as I prefer to keep to anime that I like.  Time adjusted many of my scores to the lower values as my tastes have changed.
