So.... I've never actually posted in these forums, although I've been playing FETO on and off for several years now. The only major issues I had with FETO were the startling low amount of updates that never came around, which I could live without, such as overworld blob sprites because there's no sprites there (which are way too frequent in the promoted classes), and the fact that campaigns never happened and some rules are mistated. But then it slowly started dying and I left for a while, then came back, and it still seems fairly dead. That's when I realized the problem was there's essentially no real dedicated staff for FETO to do these updates, and not enough staff to quickly validate new members on the forum here so that they can start playing. The updates can't possibly be that hard to do, each overworld sprite has at most 3 frames x 4 stances to do, and I'm sure there are plenty of people on this forum that are willing to help sprite. It's just a matter of asking and actually having someone implement them. As for new members and validating, I think Sui-kun has done an amazing job actually getting these members up and running even though he doesn't really come here that often anymore. And the fact is that if he didn't actually come back at all, there would be 0 new members. With the new Fire Emblem coming out for 3DS, it's very possible to start getting more people excited about Fire Emblem and even playing FETO. There's so much potential here, and it can even maybe go back to being CLOSE to what it was before. I don't mean to rant here, but FETO's been in this sort of stasis mode for way too long now and it seems like everybody's just kinda ok with it...

Awakening might give a slight spark in activity, but only for a very brief spell.

FETO? Unlikely. Im noticing some new peoples + some old faces from long ago *i know via profile stalking of course* but how many stay? This is the place that just recently got a new root admin, but he hasnt done crap *look at dem tournies* FETO is dead with zero hope of reviving sadly, and i think we've all grown to accept it at this point.

Everybody is not 'ok' with it, everybody just gave up in believing something would happen.

1. People had no life so they came here
2. Thanks to FETO, they got a life (perfect sense :P)
3. One thing lead to another and now they all are fathers and mothers... no time for FETO.
4. endofthestorykthanxbye.

Nowadays new people... most of them seems to come and go.

People come and go. Like the tides. Every year, a new batch, but no one seems to stick around.

The ones who faithfully linger around, even lurk around, legends of the past or of some past (yikes, we even have to define different pasts now?) are to be commended, waiting for a miracle...

"But the miracle never happen."

In all honesty, as they said before, FE had its heyday basically with FE7 and the start of FE8. 15 year old gamers became 25 year old doctors since that period. If you manage to get new blood, and moreso than new bodies, new heads, all the power to you.

FE is a great game however, and it pains me to see this in disrepair. This is what happens when a game overstays its welcome, both with age (newer games) and limited scope (a person figured out what was endgame broken in FETO on its first day). It's new, it gets figured out, it's time to move on unless new developments are figured. Good luck seeing FE3DS as the new hope.

May I state that no staff members have the ability to edit FETO. Only people with root status can edit FETO and they all have dedicated everything towards GTS+ and GPX+ instead of this site.

that sounds like a case of too many indians and not enough chiefs

if they don't care about FETO, then why not hand over the keys to people who do?

If they make someone a root admin then they also have complete power to the forums as well. :P

Yeah, no. Probably isn't going to happen.

It seems like no root admins even care about the forums these days, let alone FETO. Would they rather see it stay in this death mode, or would they rather hand it over to someone who has a chance to revive it? There's enough people on here who have been around forever that would be willing to do it. I mean, if the admins care AT ALL, even a TINY BIT about it, they would understand that they need to give somebody power that is willing to work with the site.
