When we had Darien or whoever asking for a SDF tag that was already pretty sad. Now the avatars make it easy for anyone to tag themselves. Like Dragona said, it's not something to be proud of. :-(

I approve of this thread. I didn't become a member (after lurking for years) just to see this place turn into GameFAQs 2.0.

Maybe change the registration process back to how it use to be. Register, wait a year, get approved, then never get the password. Not sure if it's supposed to be like that though, it happened to my previous registration anyway o_o

I agree with the DF avatars, they cause too much animosity. I think i'm just going to browse the OT forum this weekend till all this settles down.

You have the posters who want everyone to beleive that sony's appearence was enought o destroy japan, ala godzilla

you have the posters who think Sony is doomed and will fail

Then you have the rational posters who see Sony and MS' faults but just want to discuss the god damn games without having to sift through countless posts of SDFvsXDF shit!

Also mods, could we have one single sticky thread where all console war discussions will be held, at least until this all settles down. I really want that shit kept out of the game threads.

It'd be easier to let them bitch in one area than having to moderate hundereds of threads.

Put the word out that any console bashing outside of the one thread will be punished by a ban.

How about not allowing anymore registrations? Close the forum and delete all junior members so the forum is free of them so non-junior members can post with delight and have a grown up conversation. Open in back in a couple years when the junior members are grown and problem is solved.

To be honest I really dont see why there are even labels like "Junior Member"where your basically forceing them to spam if you want them to get rid of that childish tag. Its as if you know or care less about gaming. I hated it because you actually had some that acted as if they were better than you.:lol

Bad idea? yes
Terrible idea? oh most definitely

Nobody is being forced to spam. You come in, you post in some threads, keep your shit together, don't say a bunch of ridiculous crap, and eventually you're in. The people that are junior members for more than a month tend to play more games anyway. :)

Also kicking out all of the junior members is idiotic since hey we were all junior members at one point. All it would create is a bunch of negative backlash when said juniors go to other forums and talk about how GAF is a full of "elitist pricks" (if they aren't already that is).

Yeah agree, Some people here assume Junior to neoGAF means junior to games and online discussion which is moronic. My comments are always in question (actually everyone's comments are questioned here :) ) and everyone tries to take a stab at me not for my post, oh no, but just for that damn junior sign hanging right under my name. It's so demeaning.

Seriously, its about ****ing time, this place has seriously gone down the tubes, every 360 or PS3 thread turns into a lame e-penis measuring contest, endless discussions about ****ing CABLES, every Wii thread features some retard saying 'THESE GUYZ R RLY PUSHING THE N64 lol'...just every bad aspect of this forum has been amplified 100 times over the last two or three months.

3 things i want to see happen:


1 Lock and thread that becomes a he said/she said, one person posts one interview, one posts another with some different wording, queue 15 page thread on semantics.

2. Ban the term 'defense force' ffs dont give these idiots a title for being mentally retentive assholes determind to prove their opinion is law.

3. Lock speculation threads that begin with the words "DO YOU THINK THAT..."


You used to get banned for sneasing round here, i MISS THOSE DAYS.

The +1 posts are really irritating in these threads where you're really trying to get info out of them or trying to follow the conversation. They muck up everything and are just stupid.


Why isn't this man running things? That kind of crap is so annoying. ..........I dont even know what IAWTP means but I hate it!

I think that it would really help to see a FAQ or something about what can get you and what cannot get you banned in GAF, so both juniors and mods acts consequently. I swear that I have been lurking GAF for one year I still haven't understood the criteria used to determine who gets banned and who doesn't. Ad hominem attacks? talking about piracy? admiting comitting piracy? going against a hardcore dogma? attack a specific genre? game? say senseless things? say stupid things? don't back up your affirmations? curse? hentai? try to seduce the mods? I mean, I ahve seen people getting banned by doing these things and people who have done the same things and left unscratched O.o
