@  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)
@  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.

Meh I think the bigger problem is that people don't check every thread or care enough, like not everyone votes for mayors and for city council positions and crap, in fact a lot of people don't, but that doesn't mean there are only as many people actively living in a city as there are votes

I was in favor of either option really. Voted for Last Promise out of curiousity of what'd come up. I wasn't opposed to Girls either but had I voted for that we'd be stuck with a tie forever.

In all honesty, what's stopping us from having two new banners?

Considering how long it's been since new skins have been implimented, I'd consider two should be what we shoot for rather than simply one over the other.

*implemented (lol)

and no offense I'm the one who should be offended herebut making a skin is a lot of work unless I'm really lazy about it and just rip off another one. I was actually going to put some effort into this skin too. It'd be one thing if we had a larger memberbase, but it's a lot of work for both Shu and I. I realize I only add about a skin a year but most people don't care a ton about them anyway and we're not fans of constantly making new skins when only a few people might even use them.

So yeah it is partially "effort" but it's not being lazy, it's a matter of priorities and thinking things through. Both Shu and I have busy uni lives and jobs amongst other things and part of why I'm having a vote is because I want people to enjoy it since they don't in fact come a dime a dozen and creating more crappy skins won't please many people.

tl;dr I'm doing the best I can and I'd appreciate if you thought about things from the end of the people actually doing the work here (you say "we" should shoot for two skins but come on, what are you actually contributing to the effort besides choosing which one you want built lol).

Anyhow I'm going to get the request sent over to Shu whenever I can, tbh I don't think I have his approval so if he doesn't want to do it I won't force him and I'll have to make the banner myself. As for the other stuff, we'll see how it goes but I think Lethal is a nice skin so despite it being hard to theme I might port it over and create an alternate one--it'll be quite a lot of work though especially given all the buttons and gradients so I can't make any promises. This could definitely take a couple months as I think I mentioned earlier.

On the bright hand if I find it's not so bad maybe in several months we can work on that girls skin and it won't take as long or be as much as work. Plus my theming/graphic/CSS skills might improve a bit by then too (or so I can hope)

is it even the usual for forums to typically implement numerous skins (and keep on making them)

cause most of the forums i've been on either only ever had one skin ever, or change it extremely infrequently (and when they do, it's usually something that looks similar to the old one, just "polished"...and there isn't an option to go back)

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