@  Fire Blazer : (18 March 2020 - 03:18 AM) hope everyone is managing ok...
@  kirant : (03 March 2020 - 05:41 AM) New challenger approaching!
@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  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)

GameFAQs can actually be a decent place when the game is niche enough and not brand new. Though that suffers from the same userbase problems, and more importantly, it's even further restricted to being on-topic about the game. I've heard of old boards nobody cares about being used as social boards and those receiving intervention via mods or something.

Also GFAQS has a user ignore (hides all posts and topics made by said user) function. I have over 30 people on it ever since I went on the MH4U boards there LOL

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

Yeah I don't remember anything so it's water under the bridge or however the saying goes, it's possible we argued over something briefly but I don't remember anything to be upset about/I don't have any hard feelings and I don't remember the last time we talked but... has it really been 5 years? Because man that's a long time and I've changed a lot since then anyhow, haha.

@Tenebrae yeah true and that user ignore function sounds really nifty (I've been on the GFaqs boards on several occasions for various reasons, it has its uses, but I've never had to use that as I'm not active enough for me to warrant it lol).

This topic made me re-read my intro topic. Dear god I was different back then.

I also share the sentiment of wanting this site to stay afloat. I've been here for almost 3 years so I've become pretty attached to this place.

Though Blazer has my contact info, if anyone else ever wanted to drop me a message you could find me at my youtube

I don't really have any great ideas on how to get people to join. All I can really think of is trying to be active and welcoming because we have had people join in our dead period and leave probably because of the non-existent activity. Though this wouldn't really solve anything and probably at most just keep this place afloat.

^I think that's a start, we need a set of like 5-6 if not 8-10 active members that are keeping threads going so that other people can pop in when they feel like it and slowly feel more and more welcomed and invested

The problem is we don't have that anymore, the vets kinda dropped and pretty much everyone started lurking a bit more >_< (myself included)

Found a thread that might help to jog your memory on the not liking Dave

http://forums.feshri...topic=3421&st=0

I don't know what happened, but I do know a little of how FEE was back then, and it's not nearly as bad now. Sure it's basically the same people, but if you don't take them seriously it's a great place. They're pretty cool about not blasting people if they'll be offended by it. Basically what I'm saying is it has changed a lot. Not saying there aren't trolls anymore, just that it's now all in good fun rather than to get rid of someone they don't like.

I don't know what happened either

that was almost 5 years ago and I was clearly just upset at the moment, it probably wasn't even that big of a deal

and I don't think the beef had anything to do with Dave personally

anyhow whatever *shrug* we won't go through with any merge or anything and that's fine, I'm going to revive FES my own way mwahahahaha

I may be literally the worst of anyone here at posting, but I'll attempt to be around more, I suppose. Life has been hectic to say the very least, but I'll do what I can.

Same here. I'm still relatively new but I hardly come here to post or contribute to anything, so I get the feeling that this is partially my fault. Anything I can do to help even a little bit?

Post whatever you feel. I mean, I tend to treat forums as fairly segregated places...some things I tend to post on one forum that I'd never post on another (ex - I typically don't make serious or news heavy topics on this forum anymore).
