@  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.
@  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.

Trying to accumulate a list of things to do

So far I've been at this for 6+ hours but there's still more to do.

I need all of the site GFX to be re-obtained somehow, I don't believe any of it was hosted on FES but rather on Shu's photobucket, so somehow all the group icons need to be found, groups need to be made just like before (no special themes like CIA or whatever though), and then all of the group icons applied to the groups themselves.

After that everybody needs to be put in the right group (some members and all admins don't have to move) and then that's done.

Also we need to get a red-themed skin, I need people to show me multiple kinds and I'll approve of them, I can accept other colors but first I need to get a default red one to start off.

Also I need Ike and anybody else to make topics in the forums, then people can reply to them.

I'm going to try and get Flyingace24 to repost his tutorials after I do some stuff to the FE Editing section...

more and more and more to do but that's all I can rant for now, everything I'm typing is coming directly from my head so I'm not thinking anything out

If anybody is free and wants to help tell me in case I have something for somebody to do to help out

Thanks to everyone who helps

If I have the time, I might be able to work on a red skin for the forum, but that won't be anytime soon due to school, friends, etc.

Aside of everything you listed, we should try to encourage as many of our old members to rejoin as possible.

Yeah I have to get to that as well, I tried to put up registrations as soon as possible but it took a while and the whole e-mail thing interrupted me big time, and now I don't have any of the users info so I can't do much about that....

The best hope now is the possibility that they will remember the address and find this new one, which makes me glad that the URL hasn't changed, or I'd be screwed even more.

Don't bother retrieving all the user info from the previous forum, since there's no way you'll be able to succeed, unless InvisionFree has a back-up for some strange reason.

It's good that you disabled registrations first. You did the right thing when you first wanted to get a few things straight. You shouldn't ever rush such things.

Yeah I know, there's obviously no way to get it back unless the forum magically re-appeared, if they are active members I usually have some sort of way to contact them or they will end up coming to the address and noticing something is up anyway.

It'd also be helpful to make a post on FEU, perhaps, although I'm not sure where or how I'd go about doing that. Still, Arch and I are good friends, and Death and I are friends, so I don't think they'd mind (Death already knows the situation and mentioned that it happened to FEU several times :/).

I don't think you should expect the forum to suddenly come back... But you probably already figured that out yourself already.

And no, that probably wouldn't hurt at all. You should definitely try to get as much attention and help for this problem as you can, and with two important staff members being your friends, that shouldn't be all that hard to do.

I was never majorly involved in the site before, I might be able to now...

Anyway, I think Shu could probably find any of the GFXes he made, and I can certainly make topics. If you need anything, drop me a message.

That would definitely be helpful.

What might be helpful as well, is trying to start some discussions in already existing topics (and the topics that will be created, of course). This goes for every single member here, of course, not just one person.

We're going to get new ones (sorry!), I was thinking of doing the same thing you did but making it a little higher quality. The "problem" with yours is that it looked a little sloppy and well that's it, I was also thinking of making it have a sort of glossy look so that it looks more like a button, and then it'll be good to go. :/

Yeah I remember, it wasn't greatly active though so I'm refraining from doing anything with it until I start coding again (right now I'm doing other Mugen things but soon I'll get back to coding).
