Anyone here from NeoGaf?

  • @DemonSwordsman said in Anyone here from NeoGaf?:

    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.

    Totally agree with that last bit lol

    I doubt that Evilore will give the site away, he'll probably try to sell it and I think it would cost way too much for any normal person to afford it. We probably have to hope someone starts up a new site instead or find a new home like this place. Whatever happens I think the GAF as we know it is gone now, end of an era, the moderation was definitely weird at times but I still loved the place. RIP

  • Yep, sad to see it go the way it did, but I love EZA so plan to be on here a lot more from now on.

    I'd return if it comes back under different management but only then.

  • Welcome fellow Gaffers!

  • To give people an update on the "haps", there's two forums being proposed right now.

    AFAIK, I think ResetEra has more steam behind it right now, but worth keeping em peeled on both areas.

    Someone quite prominent on NeoGaf also launched the Super New Awesome Gaming Forum on forumbee. Don't bother with this, seemed to have a lot of hate threads up, some even started by mods so even if it wasn't meant to be malicious, it quickly spiralled (and it's down with a 503 itself now)

  • Looking through Twitter, the link above is the official Reset Era Forums account. There's two others and other accounts registered trying to co-opt the name already for alt-right messages, so just be careful out there.

    Yeah I think one of the challenges is going to be account approvals. While it certainly wasn't perfect, GAF's approval process kept out the most obvious troublemakers. Trying to re-establish and bring everyone back at once is going to be rough.

  • Yup. I think whatever launches is going to be a mess for quite a while. They will either approve accounts too slow to get the volume of topics needed or too fast and let everyone in. Just searching for resetera on Twitter shows a lot of leaked conversations from the Discord chat and people planning to raid "and kill it once and for all", so will be interesting to see what the moderation team do.

  • @Hasney Just checked out ResetEraforum and there is also one called ResetTheEra and they are saying the Forum one is a fake and ResetTheEra is the real one, also there is no posts on the Forum one. Any clue which is the real deal ?

  • @Yautja_Warrior is the real one. If you look at the top retweet of ResetTheEra calling the forum one fake and look into his account that was created over the weekend, you'll see the alt-right troll co-opting I was talking about.

  • If you want to get a real sense of the challenge they face do a twitter search with the term 'resetera'. It's insane that these people care so much.

  • @Hasney Ok thanks

  • EDIT: Troll

  • @Hasney But how do we know that's actually them :/

  • Thx for keeping us updated hasney.

  • @dmax3901 Been verified from the Discord and the account is followed by other ex-Gaf mods who kept their original Twitter account.

  • Wow, a lot certainly happened over night. This thread has been busy. I'm hoping for the best for ResetERA. I know a lot of gaffers just want to continue discussing with the community they know and love.

  • @Hasney oh snap! I woke up just in time!

  • @dmax3901 Besada had been in the Discord since stuff hit the fan. When the Discord is ready to launch ResetERA they'll let us know in an announcement.

  • Looks like @dmax3901 was right to question it. Even though it's followed by other ex-staff, it turned out to be a troll. Wonder how that happened.

  • So what's the deal here? I just googled resetera and got directed to a 4chan thread where they used a bunch of nazi pictures and slapped the resetera logo on them and said "The new site launch tomorrow, lets get ready for them". Huh? Why is this so political all of a sudden? Why are people trying to stop the new attempts to restart GAF and what's the deal with the nazi references? I don't get any of this. Maybe it's better to just let it be dead and not have to deal with the trolls and political nut jobs.
