@  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

I expected this question and I'm glad it was asked. Let's see here, if I remember properly, FEND was my first ever forum (not just FE related), since I was well, a newbie much of the coldness that transpired me there drove me away. Interested in making new friends and not wanting to give up on the FE series so quickly, I decided to look into FEND's affiliates and FES was on the list. I gave it a shot and was welcomed fairly well from a long shoutbox conversation which I'm fairly certain most actives of this day were around for, Shu the Great/Jake being one of them. After the heartwarming welcome, FES became my internet home of sorts and yeah.

Of course. Feel like waiting until the next patch so I could reffer you and get rewards for doing so? xD As far as I know a refferal system is close to being completed and I'd like to be rewarded for introducing my friends to smite. Gotta get dem nice skins, man.

QUOTE (Ryokutheman @ Jan 19 2013, 11:07 AM)

Mainly because you weren't active at all when I joined and I didn't think much of you besides the general lurker sterotype for a long while as you never really were active for a long time period. Pretty easy for someone to lose their name of fame if they vanish from the stage, wouldn't you say? Obviously you were here before me and have participated after your disappearance of sorts so I can't claim to be the one true Ryan of FES. Merely something we're both going to have to put up with having the same name and encounter silliness over wondering which "Ryan" was being addressed in a conversation.

How do you feel about carrying scrubs while playing a moba?
Generally a fairly frustrating experience, while it offers me a chance to fully put myself to the test, lacking competent teammates really hits me hard as I'm generally not a very aggressive player. I generally like to be a team player type of guy who sets up the BIG PLAYS. Setting up the BIG PLAYS only to have them... well... not capitalized on bothers me in Smite's case anyway. In SMNC, since I know the game like the back of my hand, sure it's frustrating, but I have a far more better game sense and able to carry better in SMNC. Also leavers and being a man or two down is equivalent to scrubs/feeders in my book. Carry harder, it's never enough. Even if I'm fighting such an uphill battle, I never truly never want to give in because deep down I'm just that guy who believes in dramatic and miraculous turn-arounds. Guess I'm still just that hopelessly optimistic guy.

This has really varied a lot over the years. Back when I was younger, I really enjoyed classic music form the 80s and 90s, mainly because of my mom's influence and constant playing of it. When I grew older, it turned into a more alternative rock form and now it kind of settled down to a little bit of everything. At this point, I don't really mind listening to anything unless it's death metal or something else ear screeching (kind of have sensitive ears). I don't particually care for rap or country either. Rap's just meh and country's too boring.

Yes I did. Unfortunately it got a bit lost after the entire move and it's probably somewhere in this new apartment. Suppose I'll have to look for it sometime when I feel like cleaning.

If you had to be stuck with 3 members on a desert island, who would you choose and why?

Ahh, damn this is difficult, there's been so many members through out my time here that I've gotten the privilege to befriend. Guess I'll go with the ole three combo of: who I miss the most, who's personally helped me the most and the person I'd most like to get to know better.

The most missed: Definately Tsuki Hime or whatever alias you'd wish to file her under. She definitely was something. Back when I was new, she'd mess with me constantly over my mistakes and Ryru would always have to step in. Eventually as I got to speak with her more, I learned that she wasn't the horrible troll I previously thought she was and disregarded my negative incorrect first impressions. The more I talked with her, the more I was interested in her points of view that strayed from the norm and helped better open up my mind to various viewpoints and mindsets. She really didn't deserve the general bad rap that she generally received. I can remember some really nice discussions I've had with her and I kind of miss being able to have similar conversations. Last time I've had such an opportunity was when I talked her into getting skype and she ended up helping me with paper work for job searching. Lastly, I promised her that should I actually take up my dream job of being a psychologist, that I'd become a good one, not some phony-ass shrink. Simply chilling on an Island with her being able to discuss? Count me in.

The most influence: Ryrumeli. Who didn't see this coming? Anyone who's a longtime member of the forum or even the FE community as a whole has heard of this guy. He's kind of what I once aspired to be. Someone who simply goes out and helps people, but he's definitely far more special than that. He didn't simply tell you how to solve your problems. He helped you to think for yourself to try to come up with a solution on your own. Problem was that not everyone noticed that and relied on him too much. So in the periods when he was gone, everyone would always wonder where he was. I remember that he'd always recommend me games and anime choices he knew would help me as a person. His recommendations were spot on. Ironically the time where I needed him most was my darkest year of my life. Hahaha, shows how life is. I always looked up to Ryru and in some instances kind of felt like I was in his shadow. I mean I don't want to be Ryru, I want to be me, well... whoever the hell that is. I've also helped Ryru out through some of his own trials and I must say I've been truly blessed to have met such an amazing person as Carlos (Ryru). Last I've talked to him, he was thinking of trying to get a video game company together. No clue how that's going now as I haven't talked to him in months but knowing Ryru, he's intelligent enough to make it work. Rooting for you man. Best of luck with that company, wherever you are right now.

The least known: Kuomo. I'm the kind of guy that likes to get to know people as I generally care about most people I come across. After I came back to FES existance, it was like "Oh cool a new member, wait... AN ARTIST?" I've always had an interest in the artistic field. Not like I was really talented but I always wanted to get into something. I dunno, I just enjoy art. I enjoy most music and I was in stage crew senior year of high school. A lot of my friends I hung out with were in band, plays, or whathaveyou. I can't draw to save my ass, but I've always had an interest in learning about artwork. I also really enjoy nature, hell even gently falling snow is pretty to me. I can't really say much about you since I don't know anything about you besides your artistic talent. Hanging out on an island would probably change that. I'm sorry that my reasoning isn't as explained as Ryru's or Tsuki's but it just turned out that way. I don't really know why but if I see someone's artwork, if possible I'd like to get to know the person. I blame my poetry.



There were plenty of others that barely missed this list. I'd love to chill with Blazer again. Hanging out with Shu the Great the Great would also be cool. Scott and Aaron were also inviduals whom I've had deep conversations with and would love to hang out with sometime should the chance permit it. However SOMEONE *cough*bblues*cough* limited me to 3 choices.

Either a Psychologist so that I can help people through their problems, or a teacher. I must say I love kids and being able to help them learn, would be a wonderful job I'd say.

Heh, I don't have a question this time, but I gotta say, I like that answer. I like helping people as well, and ATM I'm not really interested in any particular job, though if I could, I'd like to work on game design (but all the game series and genres etc. that I like are mostly based in Japan and stuff >____>') but teaching is something else that's come to mind recently (as I sadly have to think about this and try to decide for my major dry.gif'). It's nice to be able to share knowledge and work with others and see them improve, IMO. I also like that it's something that can be spread from one person to another... Like, it's cumulative, if that makes sense (probably not the best word choice). If I teach you, and you teach someone else, it's kind of like my knowledge was spread to that someone else, albeit not directly. And knowing that kinda feels good.

I also think I could be a pretty good teacher--at least, in a field where I'm truly familiar with the content--because I'm not very good at learning from others myself so I feel like I'd understand what to do right/wrong and how to improve etc... I also like making quizzes and grading quizzes etc. and I feel like I wouldn't be one of those mean, grumpy teachers, but rather I'd really want my students to succeed. tl;dr, I'd care a lot, not sure why but I just feel like I would...

I'd probably fit better teaching in like, a college environment though, because teaching students who don't care is kind of a pain, which is really ironic because I often didn't care about the classes I took in MS and HS, and either failed or just barely passed as a result... :\ Meh... XP

@Blazer- I agree man. I didn't really care about high school either but I still got decent enough grades. If I actually tried more, I could've attempted some honors classes or got As in classes I got Bs in but hey, can't turn back the clock.

Mainly neutral. Possible gaming buddy as you have interest to play smite, which is a plus. I don't know much about you other than your affiliation with DBZ avatars and your quest to learn to FE hack which is a lofty but understandable goal. I currently don't know enough about you to make a proper judgement but you seem sound from what I've noticed thus far.


I'll get to Shu the Great the Great's question and future questions in a bit.
