If anyone is curious, I just posted a sarcastic "Racism defeated" in the post about killing racists in RDR2. I thought it was pretty funny, but I guess a Mod didn't *Shrug*.
I was going to say something similar, but just forgot to. That thread was ridiculous. Virtue signaling about shooting pixels.

Bewildered as to the mod motivation there. I half question if it wasn’t a glitch, given the lack of message.

I just noticed that a post I made on Friday vanished.

I'm not angry, because it was not an important post (Nor was it rule breaking). I'm just bringing it up to ask that Mods let us know when they delete posts, instead of being shady about it and hoping that we don't notice. Thanks! :messenger_heart:
I agree with this. If a post gets deleted, its within my right to know the reason.

It can come as a notification since you get notified when a post is deleted

Hopefully this isn’t too late, or irritating, but as I was in a spectacularly bad mood the day he came back, and never really got to say anything...

Can I just say how good it is to have you back, Tess? You’ve had me laughing out loud in several threads now. That AOC/Horse Girl thing, especially.

Somebody, I think Dun Dun, said you left a Wolverine-sized hole in the board. It’s so true. Certain posters have a major influence on a board, for the better, and you’re one of them.

I hope you got whatever you needed out of that break, and are having a great time being back too.

Edit: Tesseract Tesseract , disregard if you already saw this, but I forgot to tag you, and didn’t want you to miss it.

I thought it was a harmless thread myself albeit a bit odd.

Wait, whut? I didn't post it in that thread, I posted it in the RDR2 one :messenger_dizzy:

I apologise to the mods for assuming they deleted it. But at the same time, what the hell? I was 100% definitely in the RDR2 thread when I posted that. I could see the other replies above the post :messenger_neutral:

I mean people are free to set their names and avatars as they see fit, I don't really care what people do, change that shit every day if you want, it can get confusing though. You've had 3 names and a few avatars in less than a year here, I literally had no idea you were VysePSU until they were talking about it further up. I was wondering where that guy went.

"But I didn't really like it." I picked my name on a whim because of a song i liked that day, only to find out it means one of the inner labia of the vulva, and you don't see me changing it.
It's like any forum feature - it's there whether or not you decide you want to use it. Like when we were talking about the New Posts page and I explained how it's convenient for others who want to save time viewing all the threads in one place.

Good for you if you want to stick to using your current name but you've also been here far longer than me, long before the feature was introduced. You got used to Nymphae after almost 7 years.
I don't know why we even have the power to change our names in the first place. Shit is annoying.
Didn't you change your name to a generic long cringey online gamer usertag for only a week around the same time Matt changed his to KojimaHatesMiyazaki?
I... I thought your name was referring to greek mythology.

Wasn't Vyse/Rhaknam/Crypto-136 crushing hard on Arcadia and later calls her Big Mama? Freud would have field day over this.
Big Mama is a MGS4 reference. I was never "crushing hard" on -Arcadia-.

Do you even read, bro? I just said that I posted it in a different thread.

There is no way for a thread to change whilst you are scrolling down it. I'm certain of it.

EDIT: I just noticed that people still liked the post, even out of context :messenger_tears_of_joy:
lol I do, just chalk it up to a brain fart, it happens. The data speaks for itself, barring some sort of weird post moving bug in the system, or mod shenanigans, which I find more unlikely than a human brain misremembering or being mistaken (happens all the time).

Or you could have early onset Alzheimer's.

Yes and like many forum features we frequently argue over their usefulness or how they impact the user experience.

Good for you if you want to stick to using your current name but you've also been here far longer than me, long before the feature was introduced. You got used to Nymphae after almost 7 years.
I do understand like picking a really shitty name and wanting that changed, maybe one time. My only point is that frequent switching can and does get confusing when people primarily get to know users on forums by their names and avatars. If you switch enough times people lose track of all the "formerly" tags, and in a sense some users do just become dead to me even though they're still here. It's a weird thing to complain about, because obviously, you're still here and posting. But I liked VysePSU better lol. The avatar and the name. Whatever, it's all your call, you have the power. But obviously it's not just me who dislikes this sort of thing.

Posted this in ban thread like an idiot but I want to say my goodbyes so I am posting here as well. Good day to you all and I wish you all a pleasant future.

Well hate to say it GaF but I think I am out..the shit posting going on in threads that I participate in is to the point it takes over entire threads and I was told by a mod to basically ignore the thread which isn't a good solution or even a solution. If that's the mentality we are going with then I just dont see the point in trying to participate in meaningful conversation when the mods don't have the community's back.

I thought about just putting on ad blocker for GaF until the problem is fixed but that really won't help anyone. I'd like to support Gaf and the good community here so I'd rather just take my leave instead of cutting ad revenue.

I have tried to express my issues and opinions on the matter to a mod and when I have presented them in a strong manner with plenty of evidence I get nothing in return and when I try to be more basic and forthcoming with an argument I get non answers and told to simply ignore it.

Maybe my goal of having good conversations with civil responses that come from passionate gamers who simply love the art form as their hobby is a pipedream for GaF and not the goal of the owners. Maybe that's on me? Not sure. But it's very clear that the negative part of the community will continue to grow and nothing is going to be done at this time.

Ill miss talking and dicking around with the good people here. And I'll miss making memes for the meme thread which is always A ton of good fun.

Maybe I'll be a lurker here and there but I'm done having my time and opinion disrespected by shit posters when I am being a civil and hard thinking member of the community.

To the people I have had good conversations with thank you for being you. Continue to game and continue to push the art form forward in a positive manner and I'm sorry I won't be a part of it.

EDIT: Sorry I meant to reply to this in my previous post.

Cult of Fart is a NeoGAF celebrity, he has more leeway in changing his username. You should go back to VysePSU. To me, you have died when you changed your name!
It looked like people wanted JareBear/Cult of Fart to stop changing or revert back to his original name so I don't know what you mean about any leeway.

I didn't die either, considering I post like I always have in Gaming, Off-Topic and this thread. I just think getting upset is silly, even for an avatar change. Like when I changed my avatar from an image of Vyse to Crypto back in December, my username was still Rhaknam. But I only changed my avatar because I'm really excited to play Destroy All Humans.

Shame to see any member leave, Nikana Nikana , but I was curious what you specifically meant with shitposting? Like, members being silly and goofing off, or something more malicious?

If it’s the latter, I do find that there are some incredibly obnoxious, socially retarded people here. It feels like I can say the most innocuous thing, and someone immediately wants to fight about it, or make some stupid remark.

I would want less mod intervention for that, not more, though. Let me actually rip into these posters and tell them what I think of them. Sometimes I’m unsure, but I think that a culture that polices itself, and outcasts/discourages bad actors, is the most efficient one.

For what it’s worth, I don’t know you super-well, but I hope you stay.

I would like to request a “single post view” mode where you can read a thread by having the top post start at the top of the screen, then press the down key to scroll automatically down so that the 2nd post is at the top of screen and so on. This would be especially helpful on mobile. Like if you use Adobe Reader on a .pdf and go to “single page view mode” (doing so would easily demonstrate how it would work more clearly), if it could work like that I think it’d be really cool.

Is this the right thread for posting requests/suggestions?
