Anyone here from NeoGaf?



  • 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.



  • @jaggafredde I would prefer if we didn't let the trolls and Nazis win. It will definitely be tough to get past them though, so we'll see.



  • Yep, I'm from Gaf as well. Probably been visiting that site for 5+ years now and until yesterday had no idea who Tyler Malka even was. Place was fantastic for having thriving, mostly excellent/passionate communities in basically every medium you could think of (EZA threads especially) and I apparently just didn't feel compelled to ever read/participate in all the apparent drama that was going on behind the scenes. So yeah, this whole thing blindsided me when I read about it yesterday morning (I was out all of Saturday).

    I'm optimistic Gaf isn't gone for good. It obviously sounds now that there was some insanity always going on behind the scenes, but the guts of that forum/user experience are unmatched in my opinion. Like anything on the internet, there were some truly bad things there, but the good overwhelmingly outweighed the bad, in my opinion. Just wild how much gaming history has happened on that forum and it to be gone in an instant just blows my mind.

    Sucks. I've mindlessly clicked on my NeoGaf bookmark like 10x today just out of habit totally forgetting it's down and then immediately bumming myself out.

    Excited to check this place out in earnest as I'm a day 1 Patron and always felt kind of guilty I've largely ignored this website until basically right now.



  • So..... Ummmmm..

    Neogaf.com is up.



  • @Mikey-Jr. And down again :/ 502 rather than 503 this time though



  • I noticed GAF was partly back up (you could see the website) but still said it's down for maintenance on the front page but it's back to 502 Bad Gateway again now.

    With a lot of people leaving, not wanting to support Evilore, it will be interesting to see if it really comes back or if anyone will return at this point.

    I think evilore is going to bring it back though.



  • Site is working for me but it looks different. Any statement?



  • @ToonLink In what way is it working for you? Mobile site will have the forums invisible as it's "under scheduled maintenance" and the desktop site for me says just that too.



  • If Neogaf comes back at 100%, what are your guys plans?



  • @Mikey-Jr. I won't support the site while it is still owned by Malka.



  • Defo diversify my forums some so I'm not always on there and some wrestling site I've been at for 17 years. The old staff seem dead set on this ResetEra so they must have had a reason to leave GAF more than just what we saw even, so I doubt I'll be back if EviLore runs it still, so I'll sign up at RestEra and play that by ear.



  • @Hasney It was showing up for me on mobile a few minutes ago. On desktop it shows the under scheduled maintenance message now, though.

    Edit: When it showed up on mobile, I couldn't see any posts, though. And there were no Gaming/Community, OT/Community sections.



  • Was only lurking and mostly on GAF for news/rumors and reading some OT threads (like the EZA thread). I imagine it will be hard to replace it as a news hub.

    The saddest thing though is that all the GG/4chan crowd that celebrates it as a personal victory, as if this was their accomplishment somehow. Just pathetic.

    Anyway a warm welcome to all Newcomers, i hope you have a good time here!

    Yeah, mobile skin looks like that when there's a message up quite often.



  • @Hasney Ah, that explains it then.



  • @Keith-Stat. Great post I was kind of the same, avoided the drama but had so many great gaming discussions. Worst thing for me is all the post history that is gone, I think I was posting there when Dreamcast was hot, it's a lot of history there that is gone now. And all those long going threads, the threads full of love for Commodore, Raspberry Pi, the racing comparison threads, the hype threads for Switch, BOTW threads, etc. Zap. All gone just like that. It's a huge loss. :(
    And I guess that'll all be gone if a new forum starts unless they somehow get Evilore to save and send them the old data base, which is unlikely.



  • As a long time GT and EZA forum goer, just going to say welcome to the new transplants, if your looking for some kind of news discusion we have a thread going in general gaming. General rule of thumb here is to respect everyone's opinion on everything.

    Here is said news thread.

    @Lilalaunebaer
    Kinda hard to call yourself progressive when you censor, ban, and edit anyone with a different opinion. I mean hell when Gamergate was in full swing I remember that a mass amount of people were banned just for wanting to have a discussion. I mean hell your so called progressive site banned Boogie, one of the nicest people on the internet just for saying something like "Maybe we should have a discussion about this after all"
    Also I find it funny how there are people trying to blame this on GG, when it all boils down to the actions of a single disgusting human being, one who was one of the biggest supporters against Gamergate.
    Anyway all im going to say here on the subject as this was just meant to be a welcome message to gafers finding their way here., DM me if you want to continue



  • I'm new and posted in the gaf thread from time to time. Poking around looking for a home.



  • @DMCMaster People were banned for supporting gamergate, which is a hate movement. Not for "just wanting to have a discussion". If sexism and hate are the kind of 'opinions' I have to respect to be on these forums then it is probably not the right place for me.
