@  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.

A friend i've known for...i'm not even sure how long now has been fighting with cancer her entire life, and the doctors say she isn't going to make it through the weekend. this girl has been dealing with that shit since she was born, and always had a smile on her face through it all. easily one of the strongest people i know. it's fucked up. anyway i'd appreciate it if you guys could say a prayer for her and her family. her name is Juliana Carver.


Edit: when i say "it's fucked up" i mean the entire situation. she was abandoned 2 months after being born in the ukraine, and was adopted into a family here in america. she was diagnosed with cancer at 20 months old. the cancer didn't really flare up til she was 2, and the treatments helped keep it down for awhile. i met her through martial arts interestingly enough. my dad ran a Tae Kwon Do dojang called Warriors for Christ. basically we beat the shit out of each other in the name of God. her adopted father is hyper religious, so he enrolled all of his kids. speaking of her father the guy is pretty ok. he adopts abandoned children from the ukraine, and does his best to give them a good life. he's fairly wealthy from his job as a motivational speaker/author, so he's able to do a damn good job of it too. anyway about 2 years after that her cancer came back, and she had to go back to basically living in a hospital for the next 4 years. after that she was in and out of the hospital up until just recently when it flared up really bad and she wasn't able to leave. that's been going on for about...4 months i think? but this little girl hasn't even had the opportunity to live her life. all she knows is the inside of a hospital. basically she only has two years of life, and she's 12 years old(i might have gotten that wrong, but i think i did my math right). her only friends are other kids struggling with cancer, and despite her terrible situation she never once gave up. not even one time has she ever complained, or been angry about any of it. even now as she's lying on what could very well be her deathbed she's still trying to talk to people, and tell them that she wants to get better and go home.

My condolences for the loss.  Sounds like you two were pretty close. 


Cancer sucks.  It really does (exactly why I'm studying to work in the treatment field).

This is late, but...


That's so sad. :(


Hopefully now, she's not suffering anymore...

I also just saw this. It's a deep reminder of just how cruel life can be, and also that anyone can die at any moment.


I'm sorry you had to deal with that. Hang in there. It sounds like she was a good person, and it's tragic her time was cut short.


Signature thanks to Shu.
