@  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.

I see you've spelt Yukiko wrong multiple times.  Would you like a spell checker?

OH MAN THAT ICON IS SO NOSTALGIC I can't even remember for sure where it's from (would guess Word though) but man

 

anyway typical joke response there XDDD wp

 

but FOR THE RECORD IF THERE'S ANYONE WANTING TO START A WAIFU WAR I wasn't saying anything about best girl or the like, nope. I'm not much into that, I might have a favorite character (independent of gender etc.) but I always thought it sounded shallow to say something like "best girl" or "waifu" as if though they're objects/trophies to be adored, though that's just me--anyway, Yukiko is also great, she was one of my main characters for well... most of the game, IIRC almost all of it really, so yeah haha. I am not going to argue "the" best tho, everyone has "their" best (or none at all like me) so =P

It doesn't sound shallow. It is shallow.

 

(though the former doesn't sound like it can have trophy connotation since it has no implication of possession, which is the main reason I use it since I do value individual characters differently)


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

haha, I mean, I don't want to offend anyone who is into that. We all have our own standards and all. And yeah best girl doesn't have as negative a connotation as waifu I think, the latter is more of a "weeby" thing (dare I say it lol), which makes it sound like some fictional group of pixels is now your (and a ton of other people's...) trophy-wife of sorts lol

The terms are pretty silly to be quite honest.  They sound so silly.  Though I certainly have my favourite and I love parodying these crazy groups (which, at least I hope, most people using the term waifu are doing these days).  Can't do it too often though due to Poe's Law.

 

I think we all have our favourites and have reasons for having our favourites.  It's personal opinion and I'm one to not tell people can't tell you your opinion is wrong if it's a purely subjective realm of thought.

There probably aren't many people that seriously believe in wanting to be married to them, but considering the amount of people that will just watch something for a voice actor(ok, ok, I am one of those people kind of, BUT STILL) in some specific role or something, and more importantly, all the porn being produced at pixiv and dA, and shippers, it's probably not said so much as parody. I think at this point anime fans saying waifu is like african americans saying nigger.

 

It is great fun saying BEST GIRL (all caps mandatory) whenever I have the opportunity though. Kind of hard to find a male version that rolls off the tongue as well though...

I always thought the dA stuff was more or less a case of thinking the character was hot or wanted to add an 18+ component to the fanon.  Now self-insert fanfiction with your favourite character as the romantic interest.  That's more that direction.

 

Re: VAs.  I don't think I've ever done that before.  Though I admit I do a lot of research while watching since some voices always stand out and I want to find out who it is.  This has led me to thinking "Really? Kari Wahlgren has THAT voice?" an inordinate number of times.  I've seriously never managed to find two roles of her which sound similar.  Some have similar cadences but never enough to really put the two together.

Mercurius BEST MAN

 

Okay.  Maybe it doesn't work as well as best girl due to wedding connotations.  But that's the best I've got.

18+ component to the fanon only really makes sense when the porn is of in-story characters, research(yeah, research, it's the best place to find out about the vulgarity of humanity, after all) and what others have told me tells me it's usually anonymous dicks instead, or just nothing but the character(s) in question in suggestive poses and nude. (although, porn drawn by girls will usually be of in story-characters. And gay. Always gay.)

 

Yeah, BEST MAN is kind of too specific of a role elsewhere also my favorite male characters tend to be underage Imeanwut

haha, you're full of surprises, Kirant =P

 

"Poe's Law"? *googles* AHHH, THIS IS A GOOD TERM TO KNOW. I hope I remember it, I'm certainly glad you told me about it, haha. I kind of agree with the idea, because too much of almost anything is just... too much, even if it's a joke or not super bad or whatever, lol. (In this case, it's kind of like how I bully Cero all the time, even if I do it for fun if I do it too much, it might as well be real bullying... LOL)
