@  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

*Mostly mainsite staff.

Hey everyone—been a while since the last homepage update. First of all, we're currently working on new features and content for the site. As a starting point, you can now submit your own savegames, and soon, you'll be able to do much more.

However, we also need some help on this front. We're looking for multiple staff positions: a community manager, a PHP coder to help me out, and a content moderator. For more information or to apply, please contact us.

Lastly, as always, please follow our Twitter for all the latest updates on Fire Emblem! Again, you won't find the latest updates on this page unless they're huge! Thanks!

Staff Position Details:

Community Manager - Promote forum activitiy by investing time into new topics and replies as well as helping new members. Later on, there is potential for helping with maintenance and other aspects. Can compensate you for your time with $20 a month.

PHP Coder - Help speed up the coding of PHP elements on the mainsite. This requires a decent level of PHP knowledge as well as free time and flexibility/adaptability with getting used to the site and how I want things to work. It also means I'll have to trust you so I suppose "trustworthiness" is a nice trait to have. Volunteer only--programming is difficult and a meager amount of pay wouldn't be worth it, so if you're going to do it, it would have to be for a greater cause (like helping the Fire Emblem community, which is why I'm doing it).

Content Moderator - This simply involves approving and denying submitted files such as save games, patches, utilities, etc. as we add support for people to submit them to our database. You may have to also make slight changes to them before approving them. For the most part though, it means checking like, once a day and spending 5-10 seconds to approve anything, if there is anything. Once the hack section is up, it will likely take a bit more work to approve and manage projects (due to their bigger nature) but those would only happen once in a while, and said system won't be ready for a while, so it shouldn't be a worry.

Stuff on this forum I could probably manage as I already visit as a part of my regular rotation...but mainsite...not so much. I'm starting a transition to grad studies in the fall (kind of...changing streams is hard so I have to take a boatload of courses just to change departments) and will be working part time (since screw you kirant we only offer one session of each course a year and our schedule is screwed up) so doing mainsite stuff, in addition to working on my own projects and running an entire simulation hockey league, would be a bit much.

I could certainly look advertise a little for these positions elsewhere though.

Zak isn't mainsite staff, but he has so much time on his hands that he'd probably be able to handle the content moderating without a problem. i don't really do anything right now so i could pick up on PHP coding fairly quickly as well. it might be a little while, but i work with coding here and there so i'm sure i could pick it up without a problem.

@Kirant ahh, understandable, thanks for even responding haha. Your continued visit to the forums is, honestly, enjoyable in itself and enough of a "contribution" to me, haha... and I think I discussed that you would make a good mod at one point but you must have declined or it just never happened or something idk

@Zac That would be helpful, are you somewhat familiar with various aspects of hacking and such? And do you feel like you have a good sense of things like proofreading and formatting? That's all it really comes down too--they're not high-leveled skills but if I have to say "no no you should do it X way" constantly then it does defeat the purpose of having you help me is all. If you think you can do it though then hit me up on Skype sometime and I could show you how it works, it's pretty simple and I could probably set up an e-mail system so that you can check your e-mail for new submissions instead of checking every day (would be more efficient since I doubt we'll get many save game submissions for a while/until things pick-up).

Oh and "Zak isn't mainsite staff" is silly to say, you can just become staff lol, that is kind of the point of this. You don't have to be staff to take on a staff position (or else there'd be little point in making this thread haha).

proofreading is my thing actually. i was one of the editors for my school's newspaper back in maryland(and if i wasn't so interested in cooking i'd totally be an english teacher one day). i do have a little experience in the FE hacking world...not a whole lot but i am familiar with the basics if that's what you're asking. next time i see you on skype i'll send you a little message that probably won't be very relevant to anything.

Oh and i thought you were putting this thread up for mostly mainsite staff to read. just a little misunderstanding on my part.

I'd totally be open for content moderation, haha. I may not visit too much, but hopping on once a day and validating stuff is very realistic for my schedule at the moment, and I'd have to visit the site more to do it, probably hitting the forums in the process, so there's that.

haha nah, for mainsite updates though I usually do something like c/p the update to the forums in a topic and link to it on the mainsite (depending on the update, sometimes if there is another relevant link I'll use that instead, but this gives me a place to put more information/details or let people comment)

@Smashed alright I'll keep you in mind
