@  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.
@  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.

Aren't they a little stupid? If I say F***, you know what I said even with it, same goes for S***, and whatever else you have censored. I would say remove them, but due to the low ages here (from what I hear) I guess you should keep it child-safe, so it would probably be a good idea to not have the first letter of the word display, otherwise people still know exactly what is being said and it's the same as without the censor.

OK, point made. You know I personally don't mind swearing but I like to keep things clean or it looks bad.

*Never noticed*

Erm, If it were up to me, I would just replace the cuss with it's non-cuss counterpart.

Since that was mentioned, I'll throw something else out, which is really just something that has always annoyed me. If you are going to censor something to another word, do not have the filter word start in caps.

Which looks better?

"Oh F***, my arm hurts."
"Oh f***, my arm hurts."

Sorry, forgot that. I have excellent memory, but its just really short.

But why change it based on your own pet peeve?

It is grammatically incorrect, and I share the same kind of pet peeve. My teacher just replaces it with -naughty word- whenever someone posts a cuss word. I think its funny.

Your way would create grammatical errors, while simply not using caps on the first letter with your method makes it fine.

..Are we really having this discussion? lol

For whatever reason I set S*** to be censored based on letter but F*** auto-goes to what you see it as now, I'ma just censor F*** and and release S***.

What else is weird is that I spelled sh!t but it capitalized the 's' despite having the word supposed to have a lowercase 's' (this was the case before you mentioned it). In any case, it should all be good now, tell me if you think otherwise.

Test: **** shit (fawck and sh!t)

Death, you said you were just "looking at the competition, friendly or not" or something along those lines. Really, shut up. There's a reason why this forum is what it is, and is not FEU. We like to call it intelligence, and friendliness. Stop trying to change everything to suit you, you're not even a "real" member here.

thats why I said "Non-cuss counterpart" Whereas the words work in the same way most of the time.

EDIT: Kensai, dont do that. Verbal Warning.

Sorry Shu, thought I was posting in the Big Brother forum.

Edit: Yes I am, and the fact remains. There IS a reason why this forum is what it is.

I am talking about the way a censor works. Blazer supports changing it. It has already been changed.

Stop being counter-productive to FES.

You posted while I was, Shu, feel free to delete this.

I doubt Death has any bad intentions, to start, he said he was going to try and help and because I respect him I'm taking his ideas into thought, but then again I respect most of you guys enough to take your ideas into thought as well. tongue.gif Just because he says something it doesn't mean I'm going to completely listen to him; don't get so upset just because he's making suggestions.

Similarly, Death shouldn't get upset if I choose to not act on them or to not act on them in the way he intended.

EDIT: It seems a bit childish to continue this and to ensure that nobody says anything more than necessary I'm closing it; if you want to address me about this problem PM me and I'll either respond to you there or open this topic up again.
