@  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

i may have found the most disgustingly bad comic book in existence...no exaggeration.

Exhibit 1: the villains in issue 32 i think actually gave the hero of the story the street addresses and names of their next victims...the addresses were actually written out on the page.

Exhibit 2: the heroes sidekick is a ghost girl...the villains were draining her of her...well for lack of a better phrase undead life force making her weaker. the comic doesn't make it clear what exactly you can drain from a ghost to make it weaker.

Exhibit 3: this one can either further condemn or slightly redeem the comic depending on how you look at it, but either way i got a good laugh

in conclusion: if you've ever been tempted to read Tarot, just don't. i sincerely think that the writer made it that bad on purpose. what little of the issue i read had writing in it that could only be that bad on purpose which would suggest that the author is intentionally screwing himself. or maybe he's just a bit wacked. either way i don't care because i never plan to read another one.

I take see those and raise you some of Bad Webcomic's worst entries: Billy the Heretic and US Angel Corps. Those things are make "disgustingly bad" seem incredible.

Edit - Holy crap apparently that last one was done by commission.

Who the hell commissions that?

Mmk. You win. I didn't exactly go looking for something that would make societal trash wretch in disgust though...I'm in agreement though. Anybody who would commission something like that has major issues.

Edit: i was going to leave a rant about the subject matter, but then i realized it was a total waste of time seeing as how anyone in their right mind knows it's disgusting. And anyone who enjoys it obviously isn't in their right mind, so explaining that wouldn't do a damn thing.

well, that doesn't have to stop you. you're free to rant about it anyway. just to get it out of your system.

honestly I'm not for crazy bad things. they say ignorance is bliss. I looked briefly at the first two links in this thread and that was enough for me XP

Oh I had part of it typed out. But I was beginning to be disgusted by thinking about it so I stopped. I prefer to be happy.

I prefer to be happy too

there are plenty of things to be happy about and such so if we think about those we'll be too busy to spend time doing stuff that depresses us... or something

Ha. Fair enough. I just had heard of these before and brought them out since this is pretty much a "terrible stuff we know" topic.
