@  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

They're ****heads that don't have any shred of decency. I mean, what would they happen if their children were among those who were killed? Would they be protesting against their own deceased children? It's just messed up.

This is the first time I've ever heard of these guys so this is my reaction after reading about them online:

At the core of my beliefs is the thought that every human being has some decency, kindness, general goodness whatever you want to call it, but that something gives them the capacity to understand other people. I'm starting to doubt that. I don't think there is a way for people to be this mean to others. Even if someone felt what these........ people claim to feel, I still believe the little kindness they have in them would stop them from saying out loud.

The fact that they even state, not out right from what I've read but still, "anything that isn't exactly like us is doomed to go to hell", and act like it's a good thing it just..... it makes me want to beat the living crap out of the people who act like this. I don't think every person has to like/love/care for every other human being as if they were their brother (sorry God it ain't happening) but still, IMO something has to be fundamentally wrong or twisted in your views for you to think that it's OK for everyone else to go to hell...... it just baffles me.

The thing that upsets me the most though, out of everything they've done most of which already goes against every belief I have as a human being, is this:

QUOTE (Idiots from Westboro @ August 30 2011, XX:XX PM)
There are over 1 billion Catholics in the world—that's one out of every six people alive today—and every single one of them will split Hell wide open when they die—period. And there is nothing they can do about it

"Nothing they can do about it". Let me make this clear, no one, I repeat NO ONE, is beyond redemption. There are somethings that you can't take back, there might even be some people that deserve to die but everyone at least deserves a chance to make up for what they did and earn redemption. The fact that they believe every single person that doesn't stand by their beliefs is wrong and should, because they don't even say will if they don't take it back, should go to hell is something I can't forgive.

There are a thousand more things I wanna say, but I don't think I t¡should gives these idiots any more of my frickin' time, I already wasted enough reading about all the crap they did.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry I had to rant, I just had to say this stuff and get it out of me.

I honestly have no words to say. So I'll just use the words of my mentor. "Why are we trying to narrow God's mercy? I didn't realize there was a limit to how many people could go to Heaven."
Why be so quick to condemn someone to Hell?
"You'll never forgive me? Like I give a damn."
"You got a jacked up notion of fair play pal...and it's beginning to piss me off."
"Though a fight every now and again does make life a little more interesting...dontcha think?"

The same way the Taliban can call itself related to Islam. They're the extreme, vocal minority.

You talk to 99.99--% of Christians and they are perfectly nice, stable people. Then you talk to Westboro nuts. Similarly, you can talk to almost any Islamic and they're incredible people. You just get the occasional crazy, but in no different concentration than this type of situation.

Unfortunately, that's the case. The crazies are the minority, but they're also the most vocal...

Latest news on the whole Westboro stuff. But.....As much as I personally would want to punch one of them in their stupid, hateful faces, I can't say I'm happy that one group of people is able to silence another. It sends a bit of a chill up my spine. Although I was initially amused, when all is said and done, the best way to get rid of hate is for it to be allowed to show its face and alienate those around it.

I heard that when they showed up to one of the funerals to protest it, they were faced with HUNDREDS of members of the Hells Angels biker gang, and they wouldn't let them get to the funeral.

This is pretty common practice against Westboro protests,

A famous example was a (was it San Diego?) Comicon mass counter protesting one of their regular "God hates fags" events:
