Heya, I run the site. Feel free to message me on Discord and/or Phansite PM
Like Yu said, it depends on what Persona aspect you're looking for.
The closest game having the Persona formula would be The Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel (jRPG mechanics, school, social life, no modern setting though)
I'd say that Danganronpa games always reminded me of Persona games the most (especially P4G). Those aren't RPGs, but the mystery, school setting and social elements have that Persona feel to me. I've seen a lot of people comparing the two before too
Mind Zero is a Persona rip off but it's a mediocre game<div class='edited'>(edited by Mishima)</div>
if this post gets 25 upvotes
<quote user="Yu-Narukami">You guys...realize there's a cap of 10 upvotes per post, right? It's not a you problem.
I imagine Mishima implemented the cap so people can't Karma farm without spamming posts.</quote>I... did? I'm wondering why it's stuck myself
Edit: seems like it was bugged, it's fixed now<div class='edited'>(edited by Mishima)</div>
A small warning - please don't post multiple times in a row if you can @ryuji_sakamato<div class='edited'>(edited by Mishima)</div>
Phansite will shut down on December 1
I regret to inform you that I'll shut down Phansite on December 1 this year. It wasn't an easy decision, but I think it's time. This includes all of Phansite (front page, forums, PMs), additionally the PMs will shut down a little earlier (November 1)
I'll try to archive the forum contents (posts, threads, profiles, avatars) and think of a way to store these somewhere else later. Everything else like anon chat messages, all PMs messages, personal information (emails, passwords) etc will be deleted. The site will be inaccessible after December 1
There are various reasons for this like low activity, technical problems I can't fix without rewriting everything, me not having as much time to take care of the site anymore, and damn, it's been over 3 years since this whole thing started. I never intended for this site to function so long, it's been more popular than I anticipated back in 2017, but I feel like it ran its course. It's not a decision I wanted to make, but I had to eventually
Frequently Asked Questions
I know it's long overdue, but I decided to make this thread anyway
<i><b>Is phansite.net affiliated with Atlus or SEGA?</b></i>
<i><b>Is there an official Discord server?</b></i>
Yes, here's the invite link https://discord.gg/pWX5QmP
<i><b>Is there an app for this site?</b></i>
No, and there are no plans for one
<i><b>Will the Phantom Thieves solve my real life problems?</b></i>
No, please do not ask for that, requests for a change of heart and the like will not be taken seriously
<i><b>Can I contact other people privately?</b></i>
Yes, we have a chat room (Phansite PM) where you can message any user on the site (and much more). The button's next to the search bar
<i><b>How can I change my avatar?</b></i>
In Settings (the upper right corner)
<i><b>Can I change my nickname?</b></i>
<i><b>Can I delete my thread/post?</b></i>
After posting you can still edit or delete your post if 30 minutes haven't passed. If you can't delete or edit your post anymore you'll have to ask a moderator to remove it
Threads cannot be edited or deleted once created and can only be removed by moderators
<i><b>How do I contact the moderators?</b></i>
Via Phansite PM, email, or Discord. The email address and Discord tags can be found on the Contact page (the upper left corner)
<i><b>I forgot my password, how can I recover my account?</b></i>
Unfortunately that's impossible right now. The mailing system that was used for password recovery is broken for whatever reason. I'll be trying to fix that, but it seems beyond my control
It's possible to have your browser remember the passwords for you, and there's an option to have the site remember your passwords and enable quick login. You can set it up in Settings, it's pretty convenient
<i><b>I found a bug/I have a suggestion/I'd like a certain feature added</b></i>
Feel free to make a thread or contact me
Hovering over upvotes reveals nicknames (I planned to add this like two years ago lol)
and now you'll find those counters on people's profiles
I didn't have enough time to test it to see if these numbers are accurate but they should be
You can upload images directly from the site now
So today I decided to stop being unproductive as fuk and coded this
You can upload images in threads (will soon be possible also while making a thread)
The way it works is it sends your image to imgur servers and gives you back a link, which will render your image
Everything is as automated as I could make it
Fixed the email bug
There was a bug preventing users from changing/adding their email address in the settings, it's fixed
Also, I just wanna remind that it's useful to have an email address linked to your account - you can generate a new password if you ever forget it. Phansite NEVER sends any emails outside of password reminders, and your data is never shared with anyone
The site is back, what happened, what's new
A little explanation as to what happened recently:
The site was attacked and blocked for that reason.
I moved it to a new, faster, and more secure server today.
I'm still adjusting stuff here and there so expect little bugs. I'll try to bring PMs back asap
Phansite's second anniversary!!
Kind of hard to believe for me, but I made this site exactly two years ago..
It still amazes and at the same time makes me happy to see Phansite, after all this time, still active. I've never thought it's gonna live for a year, let alone two
Thank you to everyone who's been sticking with the site for so long, all the wonderful people I've met, for all the support I've gotten
It's not as active as it used to be, but I'll be maintaining the site as long as there're people to enjoy it
