@  kirant : (25 June 2017 - 06:05 AM) There are fewer bots which make it in. It seems like the software blocking them out is getting better.
@  Idiot : (25 June 2017 - 05:36 AM) I mean probably the former, but hey you never know.
@  Idiot : (25 June 2017 - 05:36 AM) Either kirants doing a really good job at killing them, or their AI is becoming self-aware and improving it's capabilities.
@  Idiot : (25 June 2017 - 05:34 AM) I can't even spot the bots anymore.
@  Fire Blazer : (24 June 2017 - 05:16 AM) thanks Kirant lol
@  Whitewolf8 : (24 June 2017 - 01:47 AM) ...I should revise my statement.
A corpse of a bot is on the porch. ...pokepokepoke.
@  kirant : (24 June 2017 - 12:22 AM) It's not on the loose if I kill it, right?
@  Whitewolf8 : (23 June 2017 - 11:59 PM) Aaaand another bot seems to be on the loose.
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 06:46 PM) :)
@  Idiot : (23 June 2017 - 03:00 PM) Haha, good enough for me Blazer.
@  Whitewolf8 : (23 June 2017 - 12:05 PM) I am also still here. sort of. kind of. maybe. Also doubt I will 'actually' leave.
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 04:46 AM) and ofc, y'all are always free (if not welcome/encouraged) to chat me up somewhere else, though I don't intend to forcibly shut down these forums or anything for as long as I reasonably can
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 04:45 AM) You guys all bring up good points... not much I can say... or perhaps I'm just exhausted from everything going on in my life right now and don't feel like saying much... but know that I appreciate and look fondly on the time I have spent with you all... I'd probably even miss "Idiot", heh :P
@  Elwood : (22 June 2017 - 10:39 PM) I love this place. Doubt I'll leave as long as it exists. It's still my homepage so rest assured I'm always here a few times a day.
@  kirant : (22 June 2017 - 06:56 PM) True. You often begin stabilizing your interests and mentality in your late 20s.
@  Rujio : (22 June 2017 - 05:36 PM) Especially with forums like this that target a younger audience. Yeah a 45 year-old might stick around the same places when he's 55, but a 13 year old and a 23 year old are likely to have pretty different interests.
@  Rujio : (22 June 2017 - 05:35 PM) I mean, the problem is that this is/was a particular community, and communities like that change/go away over time. It's the same at any other forum, it's just that some places have the old communities replaced by new ones.
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 10:29 AM) And that's from someone with only 6 years of experience under their belt here. Can't imagine how the real veterans feel about it lol.
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 10:25 AM) Yeah but even so, the ones that have stuck around this long are all really great people. I wouldn't trade the memories and conversations I've had with everyone on here for any super popular forum. Though, I'm not the one who created it so obviously we come from pretty different perspectives.
@  Fire Blazer : (22 June 2017 - 08:37 AM) I think I was harboring this notion in the back of my head that, once I get a lot of free time again, I'll restore it to its glory days, but it's not nearly that simple, and I don't think I'll have said free time in the next 5, maybe even 10 years anyway, so it's probably a bit naive of me... lol

I'm tired and busy so I'm going to keep this short, but I'm super sorry that the site has been experiencing issues, including a large period of downtime (over a day I think). Not only that but we've also lost several posts resulting from our host having to restore a back-up from February 19th, 2016—the day Fates came out. That includes shouts too... so we basically lost probably a lot of shots and a fair amount of posts.

 

Here's the e-mail I was sent today (I contacted support last night):

 

a17e2c809d8f38cc3c04e6881f39f800.png

 

I'm very sorry that this happened and am both extremely frustrated and sad/disappointed. I was looking forward to responding to all the Fates threads only to find out that the site had been brought down during the time I became busy (namely yesterday).

 

This is not the first time we've had an issue but changing hosts is a lot of work and also expensive and not something I'm ready to invest in quite yet—I need more of a... money buffer (like, a sum of money I'm comfortable with spending if need be that won't affect other more important parts of my life) so I can justify it/be comfortable doing it, as well as a significant amount of time to actually make the transfer, lest things get held up for a few days.

 

I hope that you'll not be too taken back by this and if you were discussing Fates, you try to start up new threads and discuss them again, if only a little.

 

Thanks and sorry again,

 

Blazer

Maybe the server was attacked by terrorists that enjoyed Fire Emblem Fates' localization?

I cannot imagine your frustration. But alas, stuff happens. At least we're back on, now.
