@  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)
@  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.

A Smash Direct was announced for June 14th at 4:30 PM CEST, which in EST is 9:40 AM. 

 

it's supposedly just going to cover Lucas, the Miiverse stage, and the Splatoon outfits for Mii fighters, I think, but hey, it's something

 

and it's probably worth mentioning we might get new Smash news at E3 too. I mean, Smash is pretty hype, and E3 is all about hype. and E3 is coming up in less than a week. Not to mention there's the whole Roy rumors going around. So we'll see what's up~!

^saw this, tried it/started practicing it. It's pretty cool as it does make perfect pivoting a lot easier, but it's also kinda not that practical since it requires a very a specific control scheme that makes things like using specials more difficult. In a sense it also takes away some things due to the setup... and of course, since the main advantage is being able to perfect pivot and change direction easier, it means it benefits certain characters a lot more or less than others.

 

That being said it IS pretty cool but I don't think it will change the game too much. Some people might use it to give themselves an advantage but I feel like too many people are too lazy or not skilled enough or something, lol

being able to perfect pivot that easily would benefit me a lot as an Ike player actually. It may not sound like a whole lot, but ike's tilts are absolutely devastating when you don't see them coming. And his fsmash comes out fast enough to hit after a perfect pivot as well if you time it well(anyone who has ever eaten an Ike smash should now realize just how scary that thought is). You're probably right in that it wouldn't benefit everyone though, only those dedicated to a character that can actually take advantage of super precise movement.

 

as a side note I sent an email to zero asking what he thinks about it, assuming he gets back to me I'll leave his reply here, if anyone is interested.

that's true. Ryo (an Ike player I recently learned about) does some good stuff with Ike despite his weaknesses just by being unpredictable, conditioning his opponents, and catching them off-guard. I'm not sure how good his perfect pivot is though, since everyone has different lengths they get out of it.

 

and that would be cool, but I'm assuming you didn't get a response? feel like ZeRo would be too busy, plus that also feels like a somewhat common question that I imagine he must have gotten many times by this point, haha.
