@  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)

The sun blinded me for most of my venture through the woods, as I staggered across vines using only intuition to find my way. My chest was like a furnace, constricted with only a thin passageway for air. Each breath grated against my throat as I yearned to stop, but couldn't. I knew I was being followed. I could feel my mind mangling into knots of misconception. My foot tangled around a fallen limb. I caught myself on the trunk of a tree, and as I looked up through the shade of the foliage, I felt the relief I had been longing for.

It was a beige tower that loomed above me.

With a giant clock and an archway so grand,
It beckoned me.
I recall its rough bricks as I grazed
Over them in my run from terror
And the way the light glimmered
On the intricate stained class windows,
The medieval style so elegant and bright.

Oh, how I remember that oak wood of
The pews that were once my hiding place,
Sometimes even my extended home.
Without any blankets,
It managed to provide warmth.
Lacking any food,
It succeeded in keeping me alive-
My shelter, my sanctuary, shielded from
The mass genocide of my world.

I recall gazing out its window
Into the gory night, shaking with fear and tears
Hoping to stay hidden and not be taken
It contained all my thoughts and hopes
Never revealing, sworn as it was to secrecy,
Not only to my emotions but to my residence
My own personal diary
My own personal sanctuary.

But I left it all behind. The forces now rage within me against deception's icy blast. Opposition will never die; there will always be a contrary opinion. A set of iron shackles ominously awaits the wrists of the nonconformist. Regardless of risk, I will stand against the disillusionment that aims to drag me into darkness and fire. I have abandoned my sanctuary, my safe haven. Rebellion burns strongly like a festering wound, a secret warmth. If I ever want to see a change in my world...

It's truly the only way.
