@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  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.

long freaking url, but that's not important. for those of you who don't want to read the article(it is a bit wordy, and feels like advertising) there's going to be a new brain supplement out on the market, and apparently it's incredibly good. increased memory and brain functions without ANY side effects. sounds impressive, but i'm a wee bit skeptical. i just don't think that taking pills every day is going to effectively raise my iq a noticeable amount(at least not noticeable in my every day life). however since i'm skeptical i am going to be trying it out at some point. there are some testimonials on the forbes article saying it started working on day one. 

 

funny thing is the first thing i thought of while reading the article was "ok so life is already pay to win, but now we have exp boosters?"

 

edit: oh cool, the forum automatically shrinks the url. handy

It should be obvious, but it's a false article.  Anything that insane would have advertising all over or have massive shockwaves in the news.

 

Also, every link on that page, even ones which would take you to the Forbes website, takes you to IntelliGEN instead.  It even gives you a warning about closing the page ala spam.

lel, had i been half awake when reading through it i would have realized that. i don't know what i was thinking when i posted this honestly. the whole endorsed by steven hawking thing should have thrown up a big red flag. i just need to remember not to get on the internet when i'm tired i guess.

Are you sure you weren't doing something you weren't supposed to when you posted this?

 

Or taking nyquil, for that matter. My friend tends to start acting veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery awkward when he takes nyquil lol. It's come to be a joke between us. "Are you high on the ny?"

Haha, no I don't really take any kind of drugs legal or not. I don't even take stuff like Claritin tbh(not gonna lie though I have smoked a little weed in the past, but that part of my life is long gone). As far as I can tell it was just that I had woken up like five minutes before reading the article and thought it was cool for some reason. I really can't remember the exact line of logic that brought me to that, but I'm sure it was something stupid.
