Anyone here from NeoGaf?

    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.

  • There will always be people who'll take issue with something and make it as difficult as possible to start that up. I wouldn't be expecting a quick fix for a new Gaf.

  • Typical gamergate/alt-right stuff.

    Neogaf was a pretty progressive and liberal board. Now all the salty racists, sexists etc. that got banned for being what they are, are havin a laugh. That's it.

  • It's really odd, I was on GAF for large chunks of every day, but since it's been gone, I'm not missing it nearly as much as I thought I would. These EZA forums are acting as a very cosy home for my forum activities, I don't know if I see myself jumping from here to ResetEra in a hurry!

  • I hate to be a negative voice in all this...I understand that people just want their community back. GAF was like lightning in a bottle though. I don't see it being recreated in any meaningful way anytime soon. I feel like those that are trying are grieving for the loss of their community. I really miss it already, but I personally am not going to get my hopes up that there will be an acceptable successor in the near future.

    That being said, I'm more than happy to hang out here with all you beautiful people. =)

  • Hello. Thanks for all the warm welcomes. I was Zonar on on neogaf. I posted very very infrequently but I'm really liking the love and respect vibes. I think I'll hang out here for a while until things work itself out. I miss neogaf way more than I thought I would but I want to say thank you to everyone here and I appreciate the welcoming arms. I went to several different message boards and they're full of people that just hate neogaf. Also thank you Blood. I know you are a super busy guy and don't really have time to comment but you are anyway and for that I appreciate you.
