@  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)
@  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.

Simple thread: show us how fast your internet is! http://www.speedtest.netis pretty much the go-to site for this. You can copy the code for sharing it via an image and use the image button to post it as an image, which makes it easier for everyone to see/compare internetz, and stuff.

 

Here's mine as of right now:

 

4344796865.png

 

It used to be bad like... well, like what seems to be most of FES's >___>;, (it was about 1mb/s download and some fraction of a mb/s upload, I think) but I then switched providers and went up speeds again later, IIRC. So yeah we're now paying a premium for internet at our house.

 

School internet is still waaaay faster but this is acceptable for the things I do. I can download stuff, stream videos (e.g. me watching a stream or streaming myself), and play games online. Thank goodness. Dealing with lag all the time was awful. Though I still deal with it more than I'd like since quite a few of you have poor internet  *shot, lynched*

Download is slightly better than usual. Normally it only breaks 10. Upload is around where it usually is.

Ok so I have a better grade than you guys but here is the problem. My computer is connected to the router with some sort of cable (I'm not a tech guy), but my Wi-Fi is terrible. Also my computer is realllllllllly slow so even though the net connection is usually fast, the computer is so slow you can't really tell. 
I think the Upload Speed might have something to do with why I have such a laggy video when I try to stream stuff on twitch (like once every 4 months) but for watching/downloading things, which is basically all I do, it's pretty good.

Ethernet cable is what you are looking for. I run one from my router to my computer as well.

I've tried several times since my internet is a mess at the moment.  Here are the results:

 

Ping: Somewhere between 15 and 693 ms.  I wish that was a joke. 

Download: Somewhere between 7 and 11 Mb/s (typically varies between 10-20 Mb/s)

Upload: About 0.17 Mb/s (typically tops out at about 0.5 Mb/s)

 

Might be a good time to figure out what's going on with the ping...

 

Edit - Just hard reset the router.  Here's what I got:

I'd run this, but honestly it varies between the day and what time it is.

Typically though I can usually get somewhere between 10-18mb/s dl and 3-5mb/s ul with a ping somewhere around 12ms. On a bad day my dl speed can drop down to less than 500kb/s though with a upload speed that can't be accurately measured because it doesn't really exist.

the upload it's a bit slow butotherwise that's actually pretty solid haha, it's like what I had before (I mostly upgraded again for the faster upload, tbh). If only your router wouldn't freakin' reset all the time... >_>;

That ping is great (not sure I've ever seen a single digit ping before lol), the upload is kinda shabby but it's probably the download that helps your grade the most--also, if it's based on territories in general, that's probably a factor. It's very possible that the U.S. has significantly higher higher-end speeds than Chile... my campus internet DESTROYS what you just posted, or anything here. I'll show you all sometime so you can feel bad <_<;

 

stinks that your wi-fi is bad but some are just like that I guess, the speeds are just bad without a wired connection

 

streaming on twitch at that upload should be fine up to 360p or 480p at lower fps, I think, but not much better. you need about what I have to hit about 480-720p at a decent fps, the faster the better though, of course; I think 15mb/s is ideal if you're actually serious about streaming at high quality, haha

at least :P it's solid low-end internet and should serve most basic needs I think

4345294069.png

 

download is solid, upload is pretty bad but hardly surprises me since I dealt with similar. not sure why companies have to hold back on the upload so much. ping is great though. and your fluctuations sound pretty wild, it shouldn't fluctuate that much in an ideal world, but... internet service providers, right? >_>;

 

I'd run this, but honestly it varies between the day and what time it is.

Typically though I can usually get somewhere between 10-18mb/s dl and 3-5mb/s ul with a ping somewhere around 12ms. On a bad day my dl speed can drop down to less than 500kb/s though with a upload speed that can't be accurately measured because it doesn't really exist.

 

that sounds pretty lame (the variance), feel free to post it during different times of the day, no harm in that. if mine still varied as much as it used to that's what I'd do, show it at its best, worst, and in between, whenever I noticed a difference, lol. from what it sounds like it's either decently good or just awful, I know speedtest can't handle things if it's TOO slow, like the test just fails once you get to like, near dial-up speeds... (I would know, having the internet be so bad I couldn't test it to get a read on the numbers was super annoying lol)

The undeniable proof that italy's internet sucks.

They say "optical fiber" but when you activate it you don't actually get a fiber cable, you don't get anything... xD Luckily i didn't fall in that trap.

Unfortunately i pay for a 50mb internet, but for the italian law this is fine, THIS IS TOTALLY FINE ;)

Haha, all you complainers. I'm at school now, where we have real internet, but at my house, paying for the fastest (non-satellite) internet available, it regularly drops below 0.5 Mb/s and never, ever breaks 1.3. The joys of phone company internet monopolies! The good news is that Google Fiber is in the next town over, and I believe is also coming to the town just on the other side of us, so maybe (by the time I move out...) we'll eventually have good internet.

LOL shots fired at us "complainers" :P, that is indeed pretty bad though

 

clearly we need to pool together our resources for an international FES-only internet service that runs 20mb/s and 5mb/s at minimum, lol

The joys of phone company internet monopolies!

I see whatever country you're in subscribes to the Canadian concept of internet and phone "market competition".  We have 3 actual options for telecom with poor service and a couple completely irrelevant options which keep attempting to get into the market but fail.

 

It takes a bit for Netflix officials to call our service almost third-world.  That's not a joke either.

Mine is absolute garbage. The connection drops out whenever I upload something to either YouTube or Mediafire or even decides to cut out while I'm trying to stream, because the upload weight is too much. It's absolute trash and we were going to upgrade back in November, but decided to keep this because the new company we have promised us "unlimited internet data" which is the only positive side, because it sucks having to pay an extra 10 bucks for an extra 50 gigs of data to use every month.
