@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  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.

Hi, it's been a long time.

 

I think I disappeared for like, three or so years. I was having a hard time with school and the like... typical stuff, I guess.

I don't know if a bunch of the people I knew from back then are still around. I think I saw Cero somewhere, but other than that, everything's different!

 

Hopefully, there are some others I knew from years ago, but I'm looking forward to being back on here.

 

EDIT: The thing that triggered my memory of the forum was this picture I found when looking through some things on my Photobucket. When it's on Photobucket, that's how you know it's ancient

So I see. I'll look to becoming active again, I've also joined the Discord server so there's that.

I feel like I vaguely remember you.

Oh yeah, I did one of those on here, that's right.. I'm afraid to look for it because I don't think I was any good of a writer that time, but I've (hopefully) improved a ton since I've taken many hiatuses to refine it throughout the time period.

Still don't want to look back on my old writing though, I don't think I'd recognize myself, lol

Don't worry.  I'm sure my writing was much, much worse and I'd hate it too.  It's always a good writing experience though as you learn how your writing style has changed.

Well I don't think I was around yet before you left, but welcome back anyway.

(also if your profile is correct it would seem you are exactly one day older than me...thank you for that. I'll provide context later if you need it, but for now rest easy knowing you've just given me the chance to mess with one of my friends)

Hm, I might have "returned" for a very brief period when you first joined if I recall correctly, but I had no time to do anything I wanted since I was going to high school and working at the same time, so I just disappeared again anyway. Regardless, thanks for the welcome and hope to see you around, I already see you on the Discord but I'm shy

I'm also curious..

Basically I've been friends with the guy for...9 years now? I think? Long enough I can't remember how long it's been anyway, and he had this complex starting in middle school about how everyone is taller than him(not really a thing anymore, but the rest of us will still poke at it a little from time to time), and then one day he found out that he was older than me...by three days. And from that point on anytime I try to fuck with him he just says "3 days kiddo".

Edit: anyway I told him" an internet buddy"(namely you) was born a day before me in the hopes that I'll be able to put a stop to it. I doubt it'll work, but it's worth a shot.
