@  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
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

There's too many options for a poll, but what's your preferred phone--not necessarily the one you own, though maybe so. Try and be specific though if you don't prefer an exact one and you just like "smartphones" in general or something that's okay.

Personally I've owned an iPhone for a while now and I tend to just slowly get upgrades. I used to be into jailbreaking and stuff though now adays not so much, it's pretty easy to use for me and it has a large amount of apps which is nice. It's also given me several headaches as cool things tend to break easily (or maybe that's just me) but it's alright, that's life, and no matter what I'd have issues.

The main issue with me is the price, it's a huge burden trying to keep up with that pricetag...

Got a 4S last year, I've been happy with it. Previously I had a Blackberry Bold, which I still have, a decent phone as well, but I prefer the 4S.

But what do YOU have, Cero.

Personally I need to take better care of my phones, my 5 has scratches on it and it got them pretty fast... *shrug* I just don't like being so finnicky over details and stuff that doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things but at the same it's necessary and sometimes helps enjoy things more, it's hard finding the balance...

(Yep, I just made the simple problem of like, buying a case for my phone and dropping it less, into something that deep. XD)

I'll break the trend here. I'm a Samsung/Google guy.

I've had a Samsung Galaxy S3 since last summer and it's never given me any issues. The S4 just came out so I'm definitely not going to upgrade (my phone's only a year old...) but maybe I'll get the S5 tongue.gif

Samsung's not my personal choice but tell me, what's it like? Do you feel like it can pretty much do anything most other high-end phones can do? Or do you ever get into situations where it's like "yeah, my phone doesn't have that" or "nah, I can't do that"? ohmy.gif

I've never been in a situation where my android phone couldn't do what an iphone (or any other) could. Plus, beaming is sweet and iphones can't do that tongue.gif

Iphones have better app availability, I'll give them that, but android phones have a more powerful/faster OS. Sooo it's kind of a trade-off.

You can't really go wrong with either!

I don't really have time to use many apps nowadays so I'm down for a faster or more powerful OS XD

As for beaming... I hear it can be a slight pain to get working but it seems cool in general. I'd be down ohmy.gif

phone hugs ftw
