@  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 question the inclusion of profanity filters when we're as dead as we are and need new members relatively fast...

 If you're thinking my suggestions are dumb and stupid , you're stupid too. To be fair ~ Hahaha ^U^

Newbie has some spunk.

 

But yeah blazer, you should probably instate like 1 or 2 moderators since the site is seeing some growth.

Yeahhh, don't tell me how to do my job. Unless you want to get banned. Fast. I am a pro banner. I have banned dozens of people over the years. It has been a while but it is like reloading and re-firing a gun. I just need a little practice and I can do it in seconds. :P

 

Seriously though, those are not the kinds of suggestions I meant. As I already told you, we are working on rules and moderators. And skins. And member icons. And the mainsite links. An actual, not-shitty suggestion would be like "hey Blazer, maybe you could rename the "Site Category" to something a little less dumb-sounding!" and then I'd be like "yeah that's a pretty dumb name, I think I'll go do that when I have some free time!". Anyway, please some have patience so I can do my job. I have a life. Moderators are a big deal. So are rules. They take time and the forums are still in a transition period: I'm still actively doing things, but it's also up for use.

 

In other words, stfu Elle.

It's just a suggestion.

You don't have to swear that on me , things will not work if you don't since you're starting

I'm helping you , if you don't want it

Then ignore it.

Simple , no need to say that straight on me

 

I'm thinking ways so I could help.

 

 

You have to appreciate it because some people are working hard for you , to help

I don't really understand what you said (is English not your native language?), but sorry if my one bad word offended you. I use bad words a lot. They don't really mean much. Certainly not trying to flame anyone lol (I'd make it obvious if I was)

 

who is working hard for me? I have done like 99.9% of the work. Cero and Shu helped a little bit. That's about it *shot*

lolol

 

I know you're probably joking but, it's not so much useless as it is that it doesn't require your (the collective member base's) help

 

well, I'd love to have help with stuff, but I already have Shu as my graphics artist (he's just being busy/slow right now), finding a mod who is both capable and active is pretty much impossible, and I doubt anyone wants to contribute to the help-fund-a-Fire-Emblem-fansite donation center, sooooo yeah

 

I guess if someone here were extremely capable at coding for IP.Board (for free), that could also be helpful, buuuut yeah... I think you get my point haha
