@  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.

Lose Weight.

This is a fairly common resolution among a lot of people, but this year I'm really going for it.

I'm going for it so much that I started training and dieting two weeks ago. Training an hour a day, 5 days a week along with cutting out all sugar, wheat, dairy and alcohol.

Basically I'm gonna be living a horribly boring life filled with green salads for the next x amount of months. But it's gonna be worth it!

That and try to read 50 books next year. I've really fallen behind on my ability to read since college

(But seriously, I don't get why overweight? people have to be so...extreme on the food part. The most important thing isn't what you eat, but how much you eat, when it comes to weight loss...and keeping yourself away from sugar, dairy, and wheat is going to significantly reduce your energy sources for the exercise itself, which may actually have even worse consequences on your body. Then again I never had to do it personally before so what do I know.)

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

I understand where you're coming from on the not eating certain foods =/= weight loss but not to worry, I have it all sorted out with a friend of mine who is a fitness trainer.

The aim of staying off these foods for the near future is in fact to improve my energy levels as at the moment they are quite low. Once they are at a higher level the wheat/dairy/sugar gets phased back into the diet slowly (things like yoghurt, wholegrain bread and the sort).

I'm not 'on a diet'. I've changed my diet.

Every 4 weeks I'll move up a training level as well, and this marks the end of week 2.

I know you have your doubts about the specifics, and I'm not really explaining it that well, but it all checks out.

Look at what going gluten free did to Novak Djokovic though. It really does vary from person to person.

^ditto

240 actually but close enough

About dieting and physical training/health though, I have way more experience with that then I'd like to admit, it's tough but Seraph you can totally pull through and it's definitely worth it, getting in-shape and having nice control over your body is one of those feelings you can't buy and you can't make appear in an instant, it's something you work towards and it's all the more rewarding because of it. I need to get in better shape too, I'm a little bit over my ideal weight (though I recently lost a few pounds) and in general I haven't been exercising enough due to classes and other such--I've only hit the gym like, once this month, and I've made no effort to do running or other stuff... partly because of the weather, but partly because I've been sick and such, but yeah I gotta push myself to get better too

honestly one of the hardest parts is that you have no energy to exercise but you need to exercise to feel more energized... a paradox, which is why you just gotta use like, sheer willpower to push through. with dieting, I actually caved in today and ate 4 pieces of pizza despite having hardly bought pizza for several weeks now (I secretly snuck in some small slices here and there but I still cut down significantly). I also eat way too much sugar and probably too much wheat etc. too, I don't think I need to go gluten free but I should definitely lay off some of the foods I know aren't good for my body, as well as processed foods and such... tl;dr, I can definitely do better and not push my body to do what it does in poor health.

.... All the point of this being, not only do I relate to you Seraph, but I think I'm going to throw in a new years resolution of myself: stick under 160 pounds and stay in decent shape, as well as get stronger in general. If I want to succeed in school and in other places having energy is going to be key and it's something I lacked last semester, I usually felt tired and exhausted and it just sucked. It's going to be a pain because I honestly like eating to calm myself down now adays which is bad and totally wasn't how I was before--before, food was just to survive, now I do it for enjoyment, and that's what's made me a lazy, fat chump.

Also throw in some dieting there: pizza no more than once a week with only one exception per month (read: I used to eat pizza like 3 times a week so...). I'm quitting Chipotle for good, their food is nasty mainly because it's unsanitary so even if it can taste good I won't go back there unless it's extremely dire lol. And no buying a ton of junk food, and only one candy bar a day. There are times I literally buy 3 candy bars or some equivalent (e.g. M&M's, 3 Musketeers, and Twix, or something) and eat them throughout the day. Or eat 3-4 of those raw Subway cookies with 50g of sugar each, and I'm probably underexaggerating here. >_<

If my metabolism weren't high and my fat didn't go to my belly where it's mostly unnoticeable due to the clothes I wear, I'd be totally screwed, and I don't want to take that for granted by keeping it up until my health really hurts and I seriously regret it

@Seraphinox Unless you're a mutant, completely removing those items from your diet is going to have negative effects on you. Removing Alcohol? Good. Removing Dairy? If you have a reasonable alternative, sure. Removing Wheat? Unless you have medical problems, this is a bad idea. Same with sugar. Your body NEEDS sugar. My main problem with that list is that you're completely removing sugar.

If said friend is a fitness trainer, then they should know this. (I know what I'm talking about. Lol My mom's been in the fitness business for 20+ years. And I've got four years of fitness schooling under my belt as well.)

Now. If you plan on LIMITING your sugar intake, then that's fine.

Even with an exercise plan. You have to have moderation. You cant just switch it on and expect to have positive results.

@Blu Now THAT I'm okay with. But the whole "completely removing it from diet" is a bad idea. Heck. Most fruits have sugars in them.

Adding this sort of thing to my resolution list, I want to get down to 215(don't take that number as I'm fat, most of that comes from the fact that I'm 6 feet even and used to lifting quite often. I'm usually a fairly active person, unfortunately I developed a small gaming obsession XD anyway I've decided to go for a two mile run every other day and lift when I get back from that. It's gonna be a serious pain but no different from what I did during track season last year.

It's this. I'm not stupid enough to become a hermit eating bugs for my sole survival.

I understand I didn't explain it very well. It's basically just reducing the shit I intake and promoting the healthier foods alongside consistent exercise for long-term benefit.
