@  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...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

It's about time.

After what feels like several weeks of long and hard work, sometimes several hours at a time... after Shu and I going back and forth on graphics, after many long walls of text by Blazer and discussions with Seraph, who has been working on these epic walkthroughs and content pages of his own... we are FINALLY ready to release the new site.

By the time you see this, it will probably be up, so do check out the new design at http://www.feshrine.net

Though it is in the same general style as the old site, it is generally easier to navigate with menus on both sides and more space in the center as well as refreshing new graphics and color choices that don't get your blood boiling (though we will miss our blazing red site).

I'll try to keep the rest of this short both in the interest of time and interest of keeping your interest. To start, there's a lot of work to be done. We're still uploading images to the gallery, we've yet to upload soundtracks, we have a whole ton of content incoming for the actual sections, and more. However, we HAVE done plenty; we've given a lot of updates on pages, fixed inconsistency errors and broken links, refreshed pages with new graphics and updated menus, and more.

We have a new twitter as well as an embedded twitter feed that will give you the latest in Fire Emblem news. It will surpass all other news sources by mentioning even minor things and also interacting with its followers. The home page will still have major updates, of course, but there's something to be said about having an interesting little tidbit about Fire Emblem on a near-daily basis, right? happy.gif

We wanted to release the site as to keep us motivated to work on things and to get this out there before school swamped us (me) and the such. We'll work on things at our own pace now and do our best to get them up as soon as possible, so keep your eyes peeled and be sure to bug us about it or help us out if you're interested. In the mean time we hope the new design revitalizes your willingness to keep up with the mainsite and perhaps even chat on the forums, haha.

Thanks for your continued support and for those of you entering the school year, start strong and keep it that way! It's tough, I know, but we can do it! biggrin.gif

@Rujio yup, with school starting I just had to at least get the design out, from here we'll work on actually getting more information and more media and such, though it's not like, totally empty right now, but certain places need some SERIOUS work. Like, tremendous work. XD

And sorry about twitter, I know some people don't like it and are even appalled by the whole hashtag thing, it's just a way of spreading news about FE by using a medium that a lot of people use. Sometimes conforming is the only way to get things done/make progress. XP

@Cero thanks, as for your browser issue try using shift+refresh normal refresh might even workor clearing your cache (it's found by trying to clear your history... which is somewhere in settings, I think).

Also if anyone hasn't noticed yet there's a Fire Emblem Giveaway, it'd be awesome if someone from FES won haha

http://www.feshrine.net/twitter/ - Twitter being used for it
http://www.feshrine.net/giveaway/ - Rules and stuff

- silly video to publicize more

The actual idea behind this is to get the twitter going, free stuff always motivates people. wink.gif
