@  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

You can now change your name without approval (since we don't really have anyone active enough to approve crap anyway >_>').

Please do NOT abuse it. Limit name changes to once every few months unless absolutely necessary. You will confuse members and possibly upset people by changing your name often.

Not that there are any active mods now but if there WERE active mods, they would have the right to warn you for abusing it. Use your own (objective) judgment, as long as no one is bothered by stupid/inappropriate names or constant name changes, it should be fine.

This might have been addressed already, but what if someone decides to be an idiot and poses as someone else? I mean I'm being an idiot for asking this (since no one has the common sense to do that), but just a what if?

you can't use the same username as someone else.

I don't think we're the ones without the common sense here.

and even if someone else takes a handle associated with the same person (such as someone else becoming Blazer while the real Blazer is using Fire Blazer) there are other things to check such as the group, posts, gold, profiles, topics, etc.

unless they specifically change it when someone else has recently changed theirs (for example, Duelking02 changing back to arimibn, then with someone changing to Duelking02 like 5 minutes later to claim that they are the real one and that someone else took their old handle) but even then confusion is pretty easy to avoid(I already said the reasons why), especially with how few members we have and how slow this forum is.

at most things would be annoying in the shoutbox since you can't immediately see other factors like the avatar, post count, whatever.

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

Though I'm pretty sure they aren't case sensitive. A troll on a now defunct Tales of Symphonia BBS forum once changed his name to "Kirant" (note the capital) to troll the board under my name. Thankfully I was there and it just caused confusion and laughter when a mod forcefully pointed out the IP difference.

Just checked, it is case sensitive.

Honestly I never thought that would even be a weakness, it would certainly make a lot of duplicate IGNs in MMOs.

Well, it is what it is, that's where the trust part comes in. You can't have it all. I did manual for a time as to make sure nothing dumb happened, but it's inconvenient (especially with no mods to approve stuff), so I changed it to this. *shrug*

That's Blazer on TEB, noob!

This is cool, and was done partly because I was supposed to "Ask Shu to [change my name]." Haha.

Don't abuse it though, as Blazer was kind enough to put his trust in us.
