Anyone here from NeoGaf?



  • ResetERA is what the new forum will be called!!



  • I had the same name there, but it’s my first time posting or looking at the EZA forums even though I’ve been a fan since the beginning. Looks like this’ll be my new place since I can’t find anything worthwhile on reddit to fill that void



  • It's going to be tricky to replace GAF as a news source. GAF specialized in rumours (usually accurate) from the deep corners of the internet, and niche topics like corporate hierarchies/financial reports. Not only do the mainstream gaming news aggregates tend not to cover this stuff, they also have an emphasis on clickbait.

    Nice.
    Doesn't flow quite as nice as Neogaf though, but oh well.



  • Cool, if ResetERA will be a proper replacement. I don´t know what i´ll do at work today. Will i have to actually work........

    If someone could send me an invite to the gaf discord, would be much appreciated. If it´s cool, just kinda wanna see the process and what people are thinking. Guess there are no PMs here but a chat? Anyway, can´t wait for "gaf" and the community to come back.

    Chat's just a different name for PMs.



  • Apparently reset era is going for the exact same style as gaf as in look and function.



  • It will be odd to lose all our post history, but I am glad they aren't trying to make it new and different. Hope the site works out and moderation stays strong.

    I will have to make the decision whether or not to keep my old username.

    Wish I was part of the discord so I could join the discussion.



  • Looks like I'll have to get some more info about reset era from the FFXIV FC

    Yeah, that's what i thought. Thanks.



  • I wasn't online over the weekend and missed all the drama till late Sunday night. Reading up on some articles, twitter messages and screen-caps left me a bit speechless and a tiny bit sad. Checking NeoGAF for gaming news was part of my daily routine, especially at work and it surely will be missed.



  • @Japanmanx3 Interesting, I guess it could be said like etcetera or just Reset for short? I think it'll work.

    Here's hoping the foundation it's built on is up to the task, both technically and spiritually.



  • Pretty bummed out about the GAF situation. What a mess.

    I've been lurking at that site since 2012, and finally registered last year. After a years time, I still couldn't post, and when I asked about it, I never got any reply from the staff.

    Despite that, I still went there everyday for gaming news.



  • Ok some trolling drama is happening now atm. This is still a wild ride guys.



  • I hope evillote gives the site over to someone like duckroll or bishop. Was having severe GAF withdrawal today.

    Kept instinctly going to neogaf at random points. Been browsing it so long it's like muscle memory now lol.



  • @Japanmanx3 What's going on? I'm so out of the loop D:



  • @Tetsujin seems like a rogue mod was involved on the discord. Head of the discord went scorched earth on the mod team. Got new mods now. Still progressing as planned. It won't be easy. Many don't want us to come back it seems. Lots of splinter discords have been hijacked by trolls.



  • @Japanmanx3 Trolls are gonna troll I guess, it's just so vindictive who in the hell would sneak into a discord to stop a community reforming, lol. Pathetic. These people need lives.



  • Old gaffer here too, I've been using GAF for news and discussions for more than 10 years, maybe 15, and I honestly have no clue how to find something similar anywhere else. There was a forum forming the other day called geonaf which quickly got up to 1000 new members over like a day, thought that would be the new GAF, lots of old members were there, but it's gone too now. No idea what happened. I heard something about a hack job. I don't get why people don't want GAF in any form back, it was the owner who was bad, some members too obviously, but most of us was just genuinely interested in gaming.
