Maybe it might backfire, but wondering if this has been talked/thought about ?
i'm all for it but i don't think it'd fly

How about a training wheels kind of thing, like we do in politics?

When you join up, you can only post in the gaming shit thread. Once you've made X decent posts you can then be allowed full access to the site.

Hell, I would even go the Cartmanland route of making the rest of the forum invisible to those who haven't signed up.

That would be hell for search engine visibility. Do you want the community to shrink and the visitor numbers to be decimated, leading to either more obtrusive ads or the site being unable to sustain Evilore?

We need to gatekeep somehow. The next wave of pissed-off SJWs (Anti-racism warriors ARW) are coming to ruin this community, again.

We lost last time.

Either way, i'm just a cynical doomsday fucking nutcase. 99.999% chance my predictions are born from paranoid fantasy, boredom and an IQ comparable to a moist Cabbage.
You really think the moderators/admins here would allow them to "ruin" the community again? As has been shown, they tend to get banned quick for showing their asses. The few that aren't are universally reviled/mocked.

I don't think you have to worry about GAF becoming an SJW home with the team currently in place.

The last time there was an election this place got fucked up by Shillary puppets. There's an election this year and already the memo's have gone out and the battleground isn't gays this time, it's blacks.

SJW : "you don't hate gays do you?"
SJW 2.0: "You don't hate blacks, do you?"

How can the mods/admins say no to either of those questions? They can't.

The community isn't afraid of calling out the baseless and disingenuous claims like this, neither are the mods. The handful of SJWs that try desperately to push this slacktivist tactic are rightfully roasted.

Their numbers are definitely increasing, in the gaming forum, especially. Retardera keeps banning them so they slither over here to show us the error of our ways.

Most just burn out hard after a while, and make snide comments about the Politics section being a trashfire, or get bolder and call everyone racist or alt-right just before the ban.

This, essentially:



Still, it’s good to be aware of them, and push back on them hard, so they start acting like normal people. That’s a user thing, though, not a moderator thing.

It should be open season on anybody that acts like they're from resetera.

Can someone tell me how to be able to post on the politics board? It still says I have insufficient priveleges.
Hi. In an effort to curb low effort ideological bombardment from new account registrations, we're restricting Neophytes and Neo Members from posting in the Politics forum. If you are not yet a full Member, currently our rules are 50 posts and one month since registration for the automatic upgrade to Member.

Thanks!

I don’t think having any anything goes thread is a great idea as I imagine the shit posting and animosity between members would spill out to other threads.

I mentioned earlier maybe trying a gaming industry news/sales/next gen speculation etc sub forum and a gaming (OTs, previews, reviews, game announcements etc) sub forum. I’m not sure there’s enough traffic for a split though. But it would be nice to have somewhere for the threads about actual games to shine and not get mostly buried behind the other stuff.

On N4G we had something called the open zone. It basically was a forum where system wars could take place and where fights were allowed. Unfortunately having a place like that just bled into the news comment section N4G. For that reason they closed it down. I would suspect something similar to happen here.

Yes, several console war OTs have been made. They don’t gain traction because the fanatics would rather jump into other console/game specific topics to downplay and troll like they collect a paycheck on it.

They are increasing, and they are repeatedly put in their place. Plus we can sometimes get decent posters back into reality. IIRC, wasn't Zefah one of those that was super far-left and now he is decrying those same ideologues.

OMG at the comment that the mod left about Degree.


Degree: Neo member? Joined less than a month ago? Alt/troll account? Check on all three.

:messenger_tears_of_joy:

I told Degree what he was saying about somebody could easily be applied to him.

For someone who joined only a few months ago, it sure tickles the tendies to see you so heavily embedded in the ban thread and general metacommentary
