@  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.

I'll try and be straight to the point here.

I need to get $205 by January 15, 10 AM. Probably even sooner, since the money has to have been received by that time.

Do you guys know anything reliable that can get me a loan of that amount? I'll need at least one month to pay it back.

uhhhh

._. I'm broke and have little in the way of ideas here lol you could always try selling old stuff if you have any, or you could try looking for small-time jobs nearby maybe idk (like, shoveling snow or babysitting for people or something though for a lot of people that's not an option, myself included haha)

If it's to pay one of your bills I could maybe donate $50 to the cause but I don't even have $205 myself haha, I'm extremely desperate for money too which is why I'm working multiple sources of income... in fact talking about this reminded me that last night I had a dream where I was working another part-time job, but sadly I can't remember what it is O_o (I usually prefer to remember my dreams >_>)

Anything helps man. But yeah, I'd need a month to pay it back.

Basically I'm having issues with the government and they told me if I don't come up with the money, then a warrant will be put out for my arrest.

And well...due to the Holidays, I'm out of work and won't receive another paycheck until the 24th. So yeah, I CAN pay the money back. I'd just need time is all.

And heck. Even if you can't give me the money, that's cool. I just need help finding a loan is all. But I can pay back the money.

EDIT: ...God is truly amazing man. So it turns out my credit has been really good, so Capital One raised my credit limit by exactly the amount I needed. But thanks for the help guys.

Best of luck man, I'm in the same situation as Blazer, I have 40 bucks to my name, and that is slowly dwindling to nothing.

Glad it all got sorted though!

Wooh, that sounds tough man. I hope you keep pulling through somehow, it's tough, I know. Sometimes I feel like people, myself especially, are too focused on money but it's so essential to life/getting by, it's like, how can we not be? >_>

I think I'm going to have to cut down on my "fun" spending quite a bit... ><; budgeting is sooooo important even though it's not fun lol

Find a fairy named Tear and get a loan. I've heard she's a good loan shark and will even help you make more money after you pay her back

Seriously though, asking for short term loans from friends (something along the lines of "I'll pay you back") or family are the best. Many family and friends won't even ask for the money back.

If you have any leftover cheques (why the hell would you though?), cash stores are good for instant cash.

Alternatively, try to find a "one off" job like working for a tradeshow. Those require experience though and I think it'll be unlikely you'll find one that will take you instantly.

Though who knows with McDonald's...(and then quitting)
