@  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

From being a light novel to becoming an anime, the Gun Gale Online arc is going to become part of the SAO anime! Thoughts?

Sorry for doubting you but could you share a link? I googled this but I can't find a mention that GGO is being made into an anime, all I can find is stuff about the Extra Edition episode.

My excitement cannot be expressed with mere words.

Though I am somewhat disappointed by how they did not include Kirito's skin color change (it was supposed to become darker than his normal one in ALO too. And his "updated" normal skin color generally seems to be lighter when considering Alicization illustrations.)

I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

I'm excited haha, SAO is one of my favorite animes, haters gon' hate but I like the music, style, and action scenes, as well as Kirito and Asuna as characters (Klein and Egil are also okay, I don't really care for the others though haha).

I hope they put solid effort into this and aren't lazy with the execution just because they can expect people to watch it since SAO was popular and people will probably at least give it a chance if they liked SAO (then again the fairy dance arc or w/e of SAO's first season got a lot of hate so maybe people won't watch it out of fear for it being bad... idk people react waaaay too much wish they could just enjoy things like me XD).

but yeaaaah I'll continue to watch the anime on Toonami to support it and if I ever strike gold (doubt it) buying the Blu-rays would also be cool haha

All of SAO gets a lot of hate.

The sheer amount of unreasonable hate (like I notice tons of people point out problems...which are usually answered...but even I, a fan of the series, notice plenty of ACTUAL issues with how it does things) made me think, "Hey, isn't the Twilight fandom like this too? Maybe I should risk permanently killing some of my brain functions check Twilight out just to see if what they're hating on has just as unreasonable reasons." And I really did. And I did find out it wasn't as bad as the haters said it was.

Not that it was at all fun or well written anyway (and I thought Carlyle or whatever he was called looked more handsome than Edward and Jacob) but there's a ton of things people exaggerate/twist so hard it would make journalists jealous. (At least for the first three. I couldn't endure the agony involved in watching FOUR of them.)

not that i'm going to watch this arc for much more than OMG LONG HAIR KIRITO ANIMATED since i'm not that into Sinon's conflicts...though i'm also very excited for Mother's Rosario later on despite how little Kirito does in that arc

Awesome, I hope they do Alicinacion (probably spelled this wrong) too, it was the arc I liked the mosteven though I never got to finish reading it XD.

Also regarding this:

I did this too, but I read the books instead of watching the movies, because if the books were decent I could blame the, IMO, terrible first one on it being a movie. While the books weren't as bad as people made them sound, they weren't good enough to deserve all the hype IMO.

Haha I haven't read any of the light novels since I'm not a fan of reading much and I'd prefer not to know what's going to happen in the anime + it's just not the same with full visuals to me so yeah... it's true SAO gets a lot of hate too, it's another one of those series where most people seem to either totally hate it, totally love it, or are totally indifferent, haha. I mean, I noticed flaws too, but I notice flaws in almost every show, I just don't overreact to it and act like an arrogant prick who declares a show as undeniably good or bad etc. etc., ultimately a lot of it comes down to personal preference and SAO is a show that appeals to me, what can I say? XD

Alicization is too big for this season unless it's like 60 episodes. Unless you mean like, in the third season or something. (As for when that would come, I can't even guess, when considering how long it took for them to announce a second season for something as big of a cashcow as SAO is.)

The animation better be pretty dang good if it's taking them this long, huh? XD

I think they annoucned the EXTRA EDITION episode a while ago and they had almost definitely planned to announce SAOII by then and it was timed purposely to be at the end of the year as part of a "great way to end 2013"/hype thing... and as for not doing it even earlier, I dunno, but things probably just worked out like that and such, not simple to go starting whole new anime seasons after all... not to mention the voice actors are busy with the SAO video games lolol
