@  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.

All star teams chosen.

Dirk being picked is disappointing, Pau or Millsap could be there.

Dirk was likely picked because of his awesomeness in the finals last year. But Pau (no matter how much I hate him) is, imo, the best center in the game.

Anyone catch the Celtics/Lakers game last night? Went into OT, C's lost at the last second...damn. Great game though, close the whole way.

That block....

Pau's a PF

And yeah, that's probably the reason, but it's not a fair reason. Dirk's been awful.

Yeah, probably the reason, it'd be insulting not to

and I think dirk lost a year off his life in the finals last year, and now he's recovering XD

In other news... Cavaliers are being pummeled by injuries, Linsanity is taking over the world (I'm slowly getting sick about hearing him), etc. etc

Linsanity reigns.

Well, apart from that monster OKC-DEN game.

Also, Love and Irving being calm as anything.

^lol

Linsanity was shut down recently, and I noticed he has turnovers.

I think he's a good guy, good player and funny, but I think he's more or less just making the best out of the talent he has and the opportunities given to him. I don't think he's super-talented, I think he's just smart enough to use what's given to him better than other players. Of course, that counts for something, I'm just saying that his way of "goodness" is not the same as say, Kobe or Durant or some other really good talented player. XP

Bump for draft.

I am mad. Could've had Barnes, if it weren't for ****ING TANKING and a coin flip. Now we have Ross...utterly pissed off.

Not mad about Ross, I'm sure he'll be a good player, just we could've been in with the top tier if it weren't for tanking.

Bumparoo guys.

So how 'bout them Team USA? Close call for Lithuania. Honestly, I had a feeling a game like this would happen right after that blowout of Nigeria.

Also, Spain losing to Russia? Seriously? I was surprised during that game.

I'm not even rooting for Team USA >_>'

But everything's going pretty much as I expected

Minus the one exception you mentioned most everything seems pretty reasonable in terms of chance and whatnot
