@  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

Hi all,

 

First of all, I hate my life. Why? Because I spent like 20 minutes or some stupid amount of time typing an awesome/witty post only for it to go down to the drain to some kind of finger error that somehow resulted in my leaving the page and losing my post.

 

Dangit all.

 

Second of all, the tl;dr is at the bottom if you want to read that instead of my usual long post.

 

That aside. OK. New forums, new moderators. Old ones? Gone. Except those with special positions (Seraph, Shu and I; Seraph is really just an honorary staff member and isn't expected to do anything lol, Shu and I are admins and we'll mod if we see stuff but have other responsibilities, namely graphics and webmaster/administration stuff respectively).

 

Who are new mods?

 

Kirant: veteran, smart, trusted member/friend. well, I trust him, but I can't say the opposite holds true... since I took his Cordelia icon and he probably will hate me until I return it to him (plz confirm/deny Kirant lolol).

 

Surprise: Cero. I know he seems like an immature little jerk but I think he can step up to the plate, he's just that kind of person. That being said I could say that about a lot of members, so let me also add that he is online frequently, contributes quite a bit, has been around for a while, and I can contact him easily. Also, he's helped out multiple times with FES stuff recently, such as administration stuff, giving critique, and heading up the FES Smash Tourney (with my supervision), which has taken a small load off of me and allowed me to focus on other, more important things (no offense but there are just some things that only I can really do and I legitimately appreciate every little bit of help I get... and I am very picky about my help/the quality of it so yeah).

 

Two important notes about the moderators:

 

- They are temporary. This technically goes for like, all mods, but what I really mean is... they're already treading on thin ice, or something. I'm pretty much not going to be very lenient in the sense that if they suddenly disappear for 2 weeks/fail to do their job when it's right there, I might reverse things. Granted. I seriously do not expect to, but in the past we have had people kind of not work out as moderators, and I think a lot of this has to do with the mentality of being a moderator and how it's kind of a volunteer job that few people actually like to do. It's kind of being like the police: you get a shiny badge and all but some people just inherently see you as the bad guy even when you're just trying to uphold the peace. Though there ARE moderators/policemen and policewomen who are just straight up jerks too. Anyhow, I picked people who I thought wouldn't have this problem. They are both cool people and you should really treat them no differently than when they didn't have the shiny badge... especially because they don't even have a shiny badge yet #WorkingOnIt but at the same time, I don't want a long period where we effectively only have 1 moderator because all the other ones aren't actually here. That's all I really mean. If I need to, I will replace them, and that's that, it's no biggie, it's just a matter of making sure the forum actually has moderators. Maybe I can get bb to take his seat on the throne again

 

- They are both global mods. No more section mods. Feels unnecessary right now, especially given we have less forum clutter than before. I don't think it would be very productive or efficient to restrict moderators to certain areas. Instead, I want them to just moderate whatever posts they feel like visiting. Between two dedicated moderators and two admins, I think we should be capable of covering most of the forum and spotting any problems in a decent time-frame. :)

 

I think I had some other stuff to say but this is the second freaking time I typed up something about the new moderators so I'm pretty much at my wits' end. I need a freaking break. Farewell and don't forget to congratulate the new mods.

 

tl;dr

 

- New mods are Kirant and Cero

- Believe it

- Trust in the you that trusts in the me that trusts in them

- Willing to replace quickly in case it doesn't work out, nothing personal I just want mods actually on the forum (I don't think this will be a problem in the least/anytime soon though)

- Both global moderators, say bye-bye to section mods, at least for now

- As usual, Shu and I will support with moderating as we can/feel like it (Seraph is just staff in name due to his long history with the site)

- Congratulate the new mods

- Feel free to ask any question, make suggestions, rage, etc.

I'm really feeling the confidence from you guys.

There isn't really a need for a dedicated IP chat mod. Especially since were still not super active again yet. If someone is being a dick just report them.

I see that damned Naruto joke yet... I see that Kamina reference so I guess you're off the hook this time.

 

Keep up the good work you too.

yeah we don't need an IP Chat moderator, it'd be too hard to keep an active one anyhow. just report stuff like Cero said. though his choice of language is poor

I made it pretty clear to Cero to take it seriously, I will demote him so fast speed dial would be put to shame. Not that anyone I know really uses that anymore, I think most people have this thing called "Favorites".

I'm not, I never will be, FES is my second home and its members are my second family (yes you strikethrough'd that comment but I AM RESPONDING SERIOUSLY ANYWAY). I did step down from active moderation duty before/on the old forums but with the new forums I have pretty much no choice but to be active again. That being said, I'll try to leave most things to the mods, but sadly there needs to be some leadership here and if I see something wrong, I'm probably not going to ignore it >>;
