@  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

Hello everyone! So, to the point: I want to rethink the forum rules before I go ahead and share them. Until then, just be nice/assume the previous forum rules are in effect. Don't make second accounts, spam, flame, etc.; I'm trusting you all.

 

That being said, I think the members should have some input into the forum rules, so let me know what's up. Anything in particular you want to put in? Naturally, I reserve the right to decide what the rules should be, but that's not to say I'm going to ignore suggestions. Just give some reasoning if it's not obvious why it should be in and I'll consider it.

 

Best,

 

Blazer

For convience sake, could you maybe hide the old rules in a spoiler tag or something and we can use that as a ground work? Edit/add/remove rules that had too much of a grey area and stuff like that?

 

I like the idea of using that as a groundwork rather than just coming up with rules out of thin air. There's a few rules that I thought of with the change to the new forum like limiting the size of the interest section (for example).

I've always felt like necroposting rules were a little vague, but I agree with Oblivion here, we should have some kind of ground-work to go off of other than memory. 

 

... I can't even find the old rules topic... Where is it? XD

Disappeared! Heheh.

 

Yeah, we should, but I'm lazy. Seriously though, I've been doing so much work, and rules are so boring, they're kind of the last thing I want to do.

..........We had rules before? I thought we were a lawless forum. Anarchists even.  On a more serious note, as long as we have the don't abuse other users and don't post offensive content rules I'm happy. Really I'm not sure what else there is but then that's why I'm not the one in charge.

When your forum is dead enough, there's not really much of a difference between having rules and not.

 

I mean hell Blazer wasn't even admin for a longass time with like almost no mods around and things barely changed.


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

the way you talk feels so... morbid

 

I know that's not an accurate term, but come on, open up to the sunshine a little (figuratively speaking--IIRC you don't like actual sunshine). and by that I mean... don't remind me how dead the forum was it'll make me depressed T_T <- is just a crybaby

 

ok but seriously Mercurius is right (ugh I need a new nickname for you Tenebrae), we had rules but for a while there just wasn't anyone to enforce them and thanks to lack of activity we somehow managed to avoid drama anyhow, but in general they are important and need to be there if only so we can use them when we need to... and with that being said today is the day I take care of that, so I'm going to lock this topic as I go on do to do that~
