@  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.

Just for fun really, but see the other thread I just made for more info.

Any questions or issues, please e-mail me unless they don't contain sensitive information and you can post them here without any foreseeable negative consequences.

To get started, go to http://www.feshrine.net/scavenger/

If you get stuck on a certain one, let me know here. Just say "I got stuck on #___", meaning you couldn't get that code but got the ones before it. If enough people get stuck/it's not obvious enough I might give a better hint or something. (The first one could be potentially tough if you don't think of how you can submit stuff to me via the FEShrine... *totally just made the hint slightly less vague*)

With that, good luck!

The prize is a custom member icon of any capacity that doesn't otherwise break forum rules. In addition, it has to be of modern quality, so no magazine scans from 1989.

-Shu


Update: To make this more fun, we're going to have multiple winners. The #1 winner is Ryoku, who just one. He has won on route #2, and there can still be a 1st prize winner on route #1. For 2nd place route #2, I'm offering up any member icon of a Fire Emblem character--meaning you've got a little less freedom there. Said icon may eventually turn into an icon that multiple people can use as well because it's tough work on Shu here XD. Same for 2nd place route #1.

Therefore there are 4 winners, 2 1st-places for each routes, and 2 2nd-places. Also, the scavenger hunt will be up for a while yet if you just want to try it and have fun. happy.gif

1st-Place A Route: kirant
1st-Place B Route: Ryoku

2nd-Place A Route:
2nd-Place B Route: Oblivion Knight

If you're stuck on hint #2/finding code #3

Extra Hint (Click Here To Hide/Show Text)
How do you say "elite" in numbers? It's not exactly that number, you have to do something to it. Look at the hint. And that's supposed to be a member? How does that work...? Try looking at any member...

I've updated the hint now, sorry for the slight issue on my part, my apologies. Note that you might want to do a little outside research for this one--you really have to know how the forum and its software (hi Jcink) works to find this. But I believe in your intelligence and creativity. tongue.gif

Ryoku has won on route 2/the B route!

See the updated 1st post regarding the winners! (Sorry for not deciding exactly how I wanted to do it earlier. It's harder to set this stuff up than it looks. I spent a few hours. XD)

Yeah. I was the same way. I literally brought up note pad twice, and slowly worked my way through each route's options (that I have thus far) to prevent accidental route confusion.

That being said, Blazer I'm stuck on the hint leading to code 4, refering to an unwinnable game.

@Gold and @Seraphinox. I felt that it would be unfair for me to win while you guys were asleep, until I realized that the whole thing was unfair/nearly impossible when I spent 2 hours on one clue (The dreaded #6) that should have taken 10 seconds, as I knew WHAT to do, just not how to do it. I ended up having to think VERY hard outside the box in the end and I mean VERY outside the box.

@Oblivion all I can really say is try to focus on different parts of the hint. You might be focusing on a part that's not actually helpful or something. Figuring out what's relevant and what isn't is more so up to you.

As for which route is which, I think you could probably figure out on your own, but if not you'll just have to figure out the password and try it at the end!

Oblivion finally figured out route 2, meaning that route is done for!

Also, regarding a certain hint where you have to do some basic math, if you're confused...

Extra Hint (Click Here To Hide/Show Text)
A person could have 2 3DS's and assume Mia owns the game she plays (Kirant pointed out a flaw in that technically she doesn't have to own the games she plays). Also, it's game units, meaning a game will count three times if someone has 3 copies of it. (I thought some of this stuff was obvious but I should have been more careful since it is sort of a brain tease; my apologies.)


Keep going on either route, hope you have fun!

Also, I realize the system this time wasn't too great; next time I'll plan things out a bit more and start it around 12PM EST, meaning most people should be in a timezone allowing them to start it (though there's not much I can do about people simply being busy). I couldn't have just waited last night though because there was a good chance people would have found the clues just while casually browsing the forum. XP

But here's the million dollar question: Which one is the long route.

Also, I seem to have sequence broke this system. I jumped from 6 to 8 in clue # at one point.

haha, plenty of people found clues out of order, if you just search around the website you can find them XD

The next one I'll work on making it a little more difficult though coming up with places to hide these things can get a little difficult^^

And I'll just say it, the long route is the B route/route 2. The fact that it goes code # 7/9 later on suggests that (as opposed to code # 9/7)

What Sensei? D:

Also I checked my e-mail and it doesn't look like anyone got the A route yet besides Kirant, meaning Kirant is the first one to get it! Congrats! One more winner is left. Someone can do it!

If no one gets it by tomorrow around 5:00PM EST, I'll add a couple extra hints.

Also, be sure to contact both Shu and I about your custom member icon (including HQ artwork of the character--don't leave that to poor Shu) ASAP. Failure to claim your prize within 1 month will be taken as you forfeiting it and no one will get it, mwahahahaha.
