@  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

All right, so this idea came back to me a while ago. Back on a forum that I used to be a part of, we did this annual hall of fame awards for the members who have basically contributed to FeShrine...(posting, gfx, etc.) But I'm just running this by you guys...heh.

What this does:

It's just like the Oscars/Emmys, etc. You nominate certain members for certain categories....minus all of the speeches and stuff. lulz.

Examples of nominations:

Member who has the most posts:
Member who has the least posts:
Member who shouts the most in the shoutbox:
Member who changes his/her avatar the most:
Best signature:
Best Avatar:
Best staff member:
Best spammer:
Best GFX artists:
Most improved: (Member who joined as a n00b, but has improved over the years. I know a few.)

etc.

And hopefully, (I could get some help on this for those who are like really awesome at GFX AND IS ACTIVE.)

Awards: Ranges...I could talk to Blazer to see if we can tweak some ranks (not totally, but the winner of so and so category or put icons of some sort.)

I really would like your input on this because hey, it would be cool if we all could do something. (....since the 100k project thing sucked.)

I wish I had joined before today, but this sounds like it would be good for promoting the community! I've been lurking a bit and could already name a few people to fit some of those spots. Maybe to keep it organize you could make one large post with polls in it to keep it nice and simple?

I like this idea laugh.gif . Ask Blazer if he thinks this is a good idea and if he says yes then do what Kuomo suggested and make a bunch of polls.

I'm for it in general but I think we should wait for more people to be around and stuff--it's hard to say, but things have been a little slow, and I'm not sure we have enough activity to warrant awards quite yet.

And as I told Mikki via PM, I'm going to try and do some things to get things rolling a little more, and I apologize for not being as active as I used to be... life is really being a pain in the ass but I'll figure out something (even if that means just getting less sleep >_>')

Yeah we did, though it's been a while.

People need to post more for them to get awards though XP

unless we just want a series of "biggest lurkers"... Felover3 would win

Well we build reputation by what, how, and where we post

so it kind of is IMO

though the shoutbox and other things also play a role XP

This sounds like it'd be fun, buuuuuuuuut we need to get it more known about first. Blazer! Let's promote it via YT channels!

I believe that he meant advertising the site, not the awards themselves.

I'm not a big fan of this. I mean it seems like it would be a swell idea, but after a while, like it always has everywhere, it WILL become a popularity contest. And I've never been a fan of those.

I'm kinda hoping Blazer does get around to get the ball rolling on this site, but I hope his plans aren't based off of this. We need more ideas to get the site rolling.

lol no

my basic plan is what I've always done

"post a lot, advertise forum, and encourage members to post more"

in general I'm hoping FE13 will spark some more discussion but I've got to get people to actually post about it and whatnot

The only reason Fala doesn't like them is cause he never wins. And the only reason I want it to happen cause someone nominated me for something. XD

I would loooooooove to talk about FE13. Care to send me a copy? XD
