@  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

The sense of touch can work with prosthetics now and the question is assuming we get even further advanced into it. Assume cost is irrelevant.

 

I'd be down for getting everything replaced except the brain (mostly because having a digital brain sounds ridiculously vulnerable...) No human skin either, I'm down for going full metal. Hair? I'd rather have one of those synthetic wigs. I'm already beyond the point where I lost the body size I wanted to keep and the effects of decay don't seem like they're that far off...so I'd rather at least become an inorganic badass that doesn't even need to eat. (And with what we learned from the 3D printed food thread...)

 

if making a metal face cute is difficult for whatever reason, I'll just have a head modeled after an armet.

 

Incidentally, they better have rabbit versions of this by the time this can be done.

I don't think I'd mind being a cyborg, or possibly full robot with a human consciousness. Not totally certain seeing as it hasn't happened yet, but I can definitely see a lot of benefits. If at all possible I'd like to keep my head mostly intact. Except for maybe the eyes. Mine are going bad, so I wouldn't mind having perfect vision again. I would only replace my arms and legs for the enhanced performance, and at that point I'd have to replace my torso as well to get the full benefit of the machinery. That is assuming of course that these machine replacements function like a normal human body. I really wouldn't want to learn how to walk again, much less how to do more intricate things.

It's a multiple choice poll, so having the option to both pick "none" and anything else simultaneously wouldn't make sense. Having the option to pick "everything" would also be redundant in this sense.

@blazer what about it is "apalling" to you? it seems practical to me, and tbh i don't really have any big attachment to my physical body. i'd hate to lose my personality or soul, but my body is another story. don't get me wrong it's not like i have self esteem problems or something like that. on the contrary i've been blessed with an incredibly strong and healthy body. it's just that i think i'd be better off with something that could be easily repaired/improved/etc.

None of the above.

 

Teeth.

 

Teeth are the only part of my body that I'd like to have totally replaced. Being able to NOT have to worry about cavities or gum disease would be great. I have a small mouth and cannot floss well at ALL because of it. And fillings have made my teeth extra sensitive to cold, so I can't even fully enjoy things like ice cream anymore because it hurts. (I do realize that there ARE replacement teeth out there, but the issue is that they generally aren't given to people who aren't elderly.)

Other than teeth, I don't really trust technology enough to actually replace any part of my body with it. Technology is just as, if not more, prone to malfunctioning as the human body. The difference is that the human body can repair itself somewhat and technology must be repaired by someone.

 

Not to mention that prosthetic things are incredibly unsightly.

Blue Leafeon I'm terribly sorry about that, ice cream is great I feel bad for you. Also Mercurius if I could I would replaces one of my arms, my right which is my Dom hand because my elbow was damage in wrestling, I would say my left leg because of my knee problem from wrestling and cutting it with a saw but I can deal with that. I wear a athletic brace when working out for it and when I play football with my friends at the college. But haven't seen them since the year has ended, ill be back in August. But yeah just right arm and my right hand. Although I apparently have strong wrists but yeah that's my opinion. Also teeth wouldn't be bad be able to eat almost into anything probably and no worry. Well bad breath maybe.

I cannot vote in this topic. There's no "other." :(

That sounds like a legit reason to replace a part of your body.

Yeah for sure! I mean I got pretty banged up wrestling and doing logging all the time for five years and more for the logging. You have a good reason also, I mean its hard to eat ice cream for you, that's upsetting.

ahahaha, you and your logic

 

I may or may not have noticed it was a multiple choice poll, but more likely I was just teasing

 

@blazer what about it is "apalling" to you? it seems practical to me, and tbh i don't really have any big attachment to my physical body. i'd hate to lose my personality or soul, but my body is another story. don't get me wrong it's not like i have self esteem problems or something like that. on the contrary i've been blessed with an incredibly strong and healthy body. it's just that i think i'd be better off with something that could be easily repaired/improved/etc. 

 

*appalling

*shot*

 

uh

 

idk

 

everything?

 

I like my human body. It has problems sure but it's the one I was born with. I dunno. I can't really explain it well, to me it's just so "obvious" that there's nothing to explain. It just seems wrong, weird, and uncomfortable. I'd hate it.

 

 

None of the above.

 

Teeth.

 

Teeth are the only part of my body that I'd like to have totally replaced. Being able to NOT have to worry about cavities or gum disease would be great. I have a small mouth and cannot floss well at ALL because of it. And fillings have made my teeth extra sensitive to cold, so I can't even fully enjoy things like ice cream anymore because it hurts. (I do realize that there ARE replacement teeth out there, but the issue is that they generally aren't given to people who aren't elderly.)

 

teeth is actually a solid choice in that sense lol

 

Hands definitely lol. Not having to worry about their health would be incredibly liberating. 

 

AHAHAHAHAHAAHA so you can finally play Smash and other video games without breaking your hands? lol

 

 

Other than teeth, I don't really trust technology enough to actually replace any part of my body with it. Technology is just as, if not more, prone to malfunctioning as the human body. The difference is that the human body can repair itself somewhat and technology must be repaired by someone.

 

Not to mention that prosthetic things are incredibly unsightly.

 

I agree with both of these things

 

 

Yeah for sure! I mean I got pretty banged up wrestling and doing logging all the time for five years and more for the logging. You have a good reason also, I mean its hard to eat ice cream for you, that's upsetting.

 

dude that's rough, even so with all my injuries I still wouldn't want metal replacements, I'm cool with just wearing ankle braces and stretching my body and stuff, idk, that's just me

 

but yeah not being able to enjoy ice cream idk how i'd live

 

 

I'd have to agree with blazer on this one.

 

;)
