@  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

Thank you for everything.

Just wanted to say, thank you for everything, everyone.

 

Just as a country is nothing without its people, a community is nothing without its members.

 

It's thanks to everyone who participated that I have as many fond memories as I do, and I wish all the good-natured members I've met over the many, many years this site has been alive lives full of good fortune and happiness.

 

I'm sure I will remember and cherish both the fun times and the people I made lasting friendships with for the rest of my life.

 

While the golden days of these forums may have come to an end, please do feel free to let me know at any time how you are doing and what's new in your lives. The connection I built with these forums, no matter how thinned by the passing of time, is something I truly value, and having an old friend say hello would be an easy way to bring joy to my day. :)

 

Best wishes,

 

"Fire Blazer"

So are you going to close the forums to new members, in order to prevent more spambots?

lol, I didn't think of that. I just felt like making this post.

 

I'll look into some measure for the spambots.

 

EDIT: I don't feel like manually validating accounts (I don't have that kind of time), so I've disabled new registrations.

Spambots are currently being shot in the face by me when I have spare time.  Current rate of intervention needed is about once a week or less.

 

We should be capable of allowing new registrations as long as some of the "Staff" team is still around.

 

Also, screw you Blazer.  Now I have to join Twitter :mellow:

I mean... it's your call, I guess. I'd like to help, but I just have too much going on for me to get into the habit of such a thing... (or I'd be making actual posts, tbh)

 

I think you have admin access to change it? Maybe? If not, let me know I can do it

 

And... no you don't? XP I just comment on random stuff on Twitter, I can't even recommend following myself. That place is just kind of a void to throw thoughts in, if you ask me. Unless you're like a news site or some company trying to market a service or product or something like that with a specific purpose, haha. Or a super memer or the like.

 

I mostly just use it for news, myself, since it's useful as a news feed/aggregate of sorts. Then I occasionally comment on stuff to waste time or whatever, usually when I'm bored (like while walking around or waiting in line) or procrastinating getting up from bed in the morning, I think. :P

I can't be bothered to do that much. lol. And it's too short for my thoughts. Now, using it to post images from my 3DS or Nintendo Switch? Sure! lol

 

I thought this topic was about closing the forums oops.

Less of a pain than doing it by taking a photo, closing the game, removing my sd card, putting it in the comp, getting the picture, uploading somewhere, and then sharing it. lol

149 characters a post isn't enough and having me use something like Twitlonger turns it into a blog thing.  And I already have one of those.

oh, totez. I mean, I just kind of end up spamming when I want to say more. only raaaarely use Twitlonger. but too lazy to start my own blog/probably even less people would read it than my Twitter, so lol

 

besides, the 140 character limit at least makes me TRY to avoid spamming and ranting. give me a full post every time and I'm even less likely to hold back/restrain myself, lol

 

btw, where's your blog

In my signature.  I avoid posting anything politics or the like because it's far too easy to get people angry on the internet for not agreeing with them. 

 

Heck, I typically won't even post something even remotely controversial like "I didn't like Gurren Lagann...if I could stay awake through it".

Yes, it was when the forum IV went down and you had to restart. The date was November 26th 2008. I check in from time to time. Sad to see a place slowly die. But it is what it is.

Man, what a throwback. It's nice someone remembers though, heh.

 

And yeah, I know, I feel like most of the old members aren't even that invested into FE anymore, haha. I mean, some of us still play, but even if we do, it's not really like the old days, and we don't have the same free time to discuss and make jokes and sprite edits and all that, heh. Like you said though, it is what it is. Thanks for stopping by.
