@  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)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

you seem to really like to fade your letters into the background, if you know what I mean... (that, and they get cut-off at some parts, though I suppose what's most important is that we know what it says)

Regardless it looks pretty good, I'm getting a sort of a celestial vibe from the latest one. And wow, two years of college for that and a degree? That's awesome! Congrats on being so skilled smile.gif

Haha, it's a recent stylistic choice, I guess! happy.gif The render is the foreground, the text is the mid ground and then you have the background. I dunno, sometimes having the text blurred into the back makes it blend easier on my eyes. Sometimes it's easy to make the text pop out and look good without having to fiddle with it, but very rarely can I do it right. Or anyone, for that matter!

But yeah, it's not like the BIG COOL degree that most artists get, but it is enough for me to get entry level jobs working it and things like that. smile.gif I am by no means a master, but it is something I have a passion for!

Hmm! That actually sounds like a good interpretation~ I love the sea. smile.gif

Also! Did a couple of new ones, I posted these in the shoutbox, but that thing moves a bit quick, so I don't want people to miss out on these new ones I made!

These latest (and the rest!) are nothing short of amazing, I tell you what. Time to actually put effort into it and get my ancient copy of Photoshop on my laptop! Seeing what you can do inspires me.

Dang, looking good, haha. I really like the background for the 2nd one.

ATM, my only beef with your images though is that the borders are a bit bland XP

It's just a white border and also I feel like it detracts from the image, at least on this skin, because it's so much brighter than the rest (I suppose I prefer darker borders in general, if there has to be a flat border like that).

I dunno. I like light on dark because it makes it easier to pop out. tongue.gif Vice versa. Maybe I should go borderless for a bit, like with these two new ones (or one new one in two different configurations, one lighter, the other one not):

Both are nice. The darker one is more saturated and vibrant, but the lighter has a more pastel charm, almost. Either way, nice sigs!

Pascal is nice, though Malik is probably my favourite Character from Graces (as if that weren't obvious).

As for the newest Thing, I think the Glove could do with some lightening, and the right-hand Side with a little less... Glare.

Iunno on the latest one. It's almost as if the light is too bright and the dark is too dark. Aside from that, it looks quite nice.

Whoah, nice! It shows that you put a lot of effort into the text- it's very good! As for the rest of it, I'd say that perhaps where her left arm OPV goes over the pink area, the background is perhaps too bright, but it's still great nonetheless.
