@  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.
@  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...

Hello, FEShrine! My name is Darwin, and my favorite game is Radiant Dawn. I've played it through so many times I can almost recite chunks of the script word for word. My average play time on the save file is something like 14-16 hours per run. This doesn't count resets, though, which I still depend on sometimes. :\ I'm not super good.

 

But!! I need your help with a school project! I don't want to impose so I'm only posting this in the introduction section. Please tell me if this is the wrong place for it. Thank you!

 

I am building a website (from scratch) for a course at college. I'm using the page for Google Analytics research and SEO practice. Thus, I need viewership! I've written a blurb about some of my favorite Radiant Dawn characters, mainly focusing on their growth rates, usability, and whether I like them or not. I'd love to hear your thoughts, either on my stats (are any of them wrong?), my opinions (tell me how yours differ!! I'd love to hear), or my web design (it's looking kinda... old....).

 

Here it is.

 

I'm already patching together another update, which will bring in most of the units I'm still missing, redesign the header, and fix up some minor text errors. Also, Ranulf's entire write-up, elements of Shinon's, and lots of Nephenee and Pelleas'.

 

Thanks so much, folks! I appreciate your time and viewership.

hi, we're not Serenes Forest

 

that's awkward

 

I'm guessing this is a copy/paste for views? lol

 

Radiant Dawn huh, that's neat, takes me like at least 3x as long to beat as you I'm pretty sure hahaha

 

the site itself isn't bad, a lot of text in big blocks though

 

and for some reason I get the feeling some of the art is from PoR but I think I'm wrong... hopefully I'm wrong

FHWHOAA OOPS!! Yeah that's super awkward. I need more views, yes. That's the entire point of the exercise. I apologize for that!! Oh gosh that's super embarrassing. I've edited that part out.

 

It's a long game! I remember on the box it said something like 70+ hours of gameplay, but I figure that's with like. All the custcenes and so on.

 

Thanks! And yes, we were supposed to add LOTS of copy. I'm going to reformat it eventually.

 

And no, you're not wrong. Lots of the art is from PoR. I couldn't find high res images of some of the less popular characters. :( If I could find RD for everyone, I'd use em.

 

Thanks so much man!!

Hey there.  Welcome.  And good luck (should you choose not to come back after you're done your project).

 

Anyways, I can't speak much about the game itself but a major formatting issue that's killing me is the lack of space between paragraphs.  No indentation and no space really makes it hard to see paragraphs.

Edit - Also, your "Other" page has different text size for no reason.
