@  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)

I'm not sure if we will be reusing the old ones or making new ones. If we are getting new icons I would like to request this image be used for mine.

Is there a purpose to member icons when they aren't consistent? (I mean I guess there was Kirant's but that one is specifically a prize.)


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

sorry has to be (insert size here)

 

but seriously we just don't have a system for member icons right now. Once we figure out a system, we'll do something. It doesn't help that I'm currently broke and don't know how to use this software very effectively. >_>

 

EDIT: how I want it to be is that anyone can choose any icon except special ones (e.g. my Luffy one or Shu's Zoro one). And they can choose on their own. That way it's a hands-off thing for the admins while giving users plenty of choices (without needing to ask admins to change it or requiring a lot of posts).

I believe I had the other one with both prizes being rewards for the scavenger hunt.

So everyone, update on the member icons

 

I can do them

 

maybe

 

but it's going to be pretty difficult

 

sadly it requires custom code and in a way that I'm not familiar with in a language I'm not that familiar with (I've studied a bit of PHP but not much, it was a while ago, and I have very little practice with it).

I don't want to force myself to try to finish this and take a hit somewhere else in my life, so as a result, I will be doing this sometime in the next few weeks whenever I have time and feel like it. In the mean time, we'll be going without a member icon system (normal members just won't have them until the system is up, sorry; in my defense, this system is really just for you guys as it will allow you to choose from a bunch of icons, whereas us staff and such already have ours decided, so yeah).

 

That's it for now. I'm closing up shop and moving on to other things as I've spent a lot of time on FES lately. Sorry~

Totally understandable. Here's hoping we're all still active when it comes time to new icons.

I've been without an icon since 2012, I think you guys can manage a few weeks

 

Sounds good, this is low priority stuff anyway. I wish I knew more of PHP to lend a hand in general, but such is life. Good luck!

thanks~ I'm doing as much as I can to prevent that. let's not combat negative thoughts but think happy ones, instead, like "I can't wait until we have 30 regular-visiting/posting members a day!

that's true, and I can't even remember why. I think you had a dumb icon or something. or you weren't even supposed to have an icon. idr, but clearly you deserved it *shot*

 

>< well, I appreciate the thought/good luck wish, hopefully I have some time to sit down and first and foremost learn more about PHP and how the templates work so I can actually do what I need to... <_<

Ah well.  It's not like I didn't save my old one at least.

 

Wish I could help out too though...I tried editing some PHP code once for my simulation league and all I managed to do is change a variable (that is, adjust one constant to another).  Anything beyond that is impossible for me.

 

...Wait.  This is starting to bug me.  I've learned Python, C++, the C based MATLAB, English, Chinese, Japanese, and parts of French (though much of the last 2 I've forgotten)...and I'm STILL PHP illiterate?

I distinctly remember Shu was to make me a Janaff custom member icon for some reason or another.

 

Until I receive it I shall not post again. He lied.

If we can't last that long, we probably don't deserve to have member icons in the first place. 

 

First icon was Neph after that Browns bet with you that they'd win. Second one was uhh winning second place in the second scavenger hunt, if memory serves.

Meh kinda

 

I mean I guess I can just remove icons for pretty much everyone

 

and I have your old icon, but yeah first we need a system, then we can let people choose it... and said icon needs to say "Moderator" now

 

thanks for the thought at least... and hey learning languages is time-consuming, don't think anyone blames you XD

 

^And I'm stuck with Tibarney Gumble - life is cruel xD

 

._. guess I really should remove icons for everyone then lolol

 

I distinctly remember Shu was to make me a Janaff custom member icon for some reason or another.

 

Until I receive it I shall not post again. He lied.

 

is this an actual thing

 

Shu's been doing Shu things and hasn't done jack lately sooo yeah, but I'll tell him please continue to post though

 

If we can't last that long, we probably don't deserve to have member icons in the first place. 

 

First icon was Neph after that Browns bet with you that they'd win. Second one was uhh winning second place in the second scavenger hunt, if memory serves. 

 

uh you quoted some stuff I said that was directed to Smash

 

sooo yeah

 

tbh I don't remember anything having to do with your icons, Oblivion (no, me reading what you said didn't jog my memory)

 

I just realized that the Raven and Sothe icons are done in Shu's older style compared to the other member icons. lol.

 

ssshhh

 

Some of us have icons now, I see. Also, I guess Kirant's a global mod? Congrats on your promotion!

 

no no no, you misunderstand. only special groups have icons. some people are in a group that is pretty much all to themselves so that is why they happen to have icons. and I am about to just remove those until the system is done anyhow

 

and Kirant hasn't been officially promoted/this isn't the place to put that/you weren't supposed to notice yet lol

 

I was going to get a new one, but I retired just as they were asking me. Should've stayed xD

 

shoulda coulda woulda
