@  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
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Anyone who remembers me, I'm making a likely brief appearance. I guess the board software has been updated so I have to add my avatar again, but my old images are on another computer, so just a picture of Lilina for now I guess. XD
 
I don't really have much to say, real life has been busy for me in the past few years, work and social stuff keeping me busy. I'm engaged so wedding planning and that sort of stuff take up more time.
 
None the less I wanted to stop by to lurk a little bit and maybe post some one liners in the shoutbox.

I just read your shout. I thought your name sounded familiar. So you are that mage girl. Weren't you one of the younger modders in the community? You can actually make your own engine?? You must be way smart.

I don't think I was one of the younger ones, considering I'm turning 29 this year. But I forget the age range the modding community was in general.

So far I have made my own Super Mario clone engine, but I never released anything using it. I wouldn't call myself way smart though, I can't make game engines totally independent of other game making tools. I'm kind of the "All-Around" type like in Mario sports games or whatever, I've got a broad range of skills but I'm never amazing at anything.

None the less, thanks for all the welcome backs and the congratulations messages in regards to my engagement and what-not.

I remember you. I used to be known as Rutger.

You were one of my first (and probably only) friends during my FE modding days. I wasn't very well-liked during that era for reasons I understand now, but don't particularly care to admit. Moreso due to the fact that I was a terrible person back then, and I've come to accept that, and try to improve myself over the years. Doesn't take away the fact the way FEU handled me back then was horrible, though.

When I made my return post here last year, I was actually wondering what you were up to. At least I've got my answer, haha. Congratulations on your engagement, though. You deserve nothing but the best. I still have yet to break the ice with my beloved, myself. For now, we're not in a big rush. At the very least, you're happy with what you have, and considering what a person you were to me back then, that's really what I was hoping for.

I know you probably won't be around for very long, but I kind of hope you will check by when you get a chance. You were a really chill person. The fact that as much of hot trash as I was back then, that you'd still talk to me, just says a lot about you as a person. And that's a quality that doesn't come by very often.


I know this post is hella late, but I just wanted to get that message out there.


Fighting the ghosts of my past. I'd rather not remember who I once used to be..
