i mostly lurked but id really like to keep up with what yall post. so much music i love came from here.
If you have sent me a message, I will get to you soon. The limits on PMs as well as my own schedule mean sending out all these invites will take sometime. I haven't ignored you, don't worry about that.
I'm trying! Hopefully, folks like MT and Eos can send some to folks now that they're in, but this 10 minute restriction is really impeding sending them out.also low key someone shoot me the discord link. i know i only made like five posts on here but i think they were all VERY GOOD posts.
My thinking on it is that all that is stuff EL has to worry about because to us the damage to the community is done regardless of whatever happens with his situation.*snip*
Thanks again, everyone, for sharing over the years. Goddamn I'm gonna miss this place.My thinking on it is that all that is stuff EL has to worry about because to us the damage to the community is done regardless of whatever happens with his situation.
Let's be real, the girl could recant tomorrow but the admin team isn't gonna unban all those people and I highly doubt they would wanna came back regardless.
I can't say with certainty he's guilty obviously, but his past is clearly sketchy, and his response to these allegations leaves a lot to be desired.
Again though, things won't be the same. Even if he changes course from restricting politics and social issues so many notable members have commited account suicide these past few days that's it's hard to see this place continuing to be THE geek friendly, left leaning, one stop shop for nearly anything and still thriving like it used to be after this. The genie is out of the bottle and you already see so many juniors coming out of the woodwork wanting to bring things back to ”games".
I imagine it will continue on, some good people will stick around but it's gonna be a minute until the new content creators and forum leaders emerge to drive discussion forward. To everyone else who was around before all this, the old neogaf is gone.
You're an OG too my fault breh, much love to you
me to des in 2012 said:Hey thanks for the Bronson recommendation. I don't know if you've ever given it any thought, but you would be great at running a hip hop blog. I feel like you're 2Dopeboyz before the acquisition by Complex plus some.
I feel like there's always room for a new, better hip hop blog. 2dbz has become so bloated. Almost looks like MySpace.
I've been lurking GAF HOP since the first one, don't post much, but you've become and maintained your spot as my #1 source for good hip hop (don't venture to the headphones thread much, but I see you know that area pretty well too). You're the reason I listened to Kendrick Lamar in 2010, you got me into Danny Brown and I'm from MI (how was I sleeping?!), and there are countless others.
I always bookmark your review threads, I just don't have the ability to go through as much music and judge it so accurately at the same pace as you. I basically just really want you to start a hip hop blog/review site (like Hip Hop DX fucked 2Dopeboyz, and their kid fucked Allhip....), hell even a headphone editorial once a month or something?
Sorry for the rant... took too much adderall today. Red Bull didn't fucking help. Guess I just wanted to give you a long overdue thanks, and I hope you keep doing what you're doing.
Ive been thinking about this since I read your post.Why did so many of y'all wait until the community died to show love?
Id also like to get in on this.
Probably won't go in the Discord.
Not even sure whether I'll post here anymore.
Might just be done with forums, this was the last one I posted on regularly.
Will probably stick to Redit and FB groups from this point on.
