I think you got thread banned because of these posts.
Yes, I don't really see how that was a big issue especially since I said I got nothing against Sony fans. I just took issue with the tone of the MOD message it was very petty and trying to mock me. If Blood borne wins that's fine with me, it has no effect on my life. Feels very one sided though.

I was just banned from this thread.


Reason given was "Derail, detail, deraillll"

Like what??

Not a very open and fair forum if I'm not allowed to respond to a bunch of people who just quoted me.

Not even a warning first either. Not that I should have been banned at all.

Couldn't find a better place to post this and didn't want to create a new thread... Is there anyway to change view settings to 100 posts per page?

I can't seem to find it in setting but I could have sworn this used to be an option. Am I going crazy? 50ppp feels too little.

It's a gold feature.
I legit thought you were joking but I just looked it up and... it's true?

EviLore EviLore my dude. Seriously? People aren't buying Gold for 100ppp. Why lock a standard browsing option behind a paywall?

In all fairness I love what you've done with the 2.0 website and the turnaround in post count proves NeoGAF is coming back. Can you reverse this silly decision and let everyone choose 50/100ppp? Maybe even threads per page option too?

Hey Biff, glad you like the 2.0 site. If you find yourself using GAF on the regular again, a few bucks per month helps keep the lights on and includes several custom options and features beyond just the posts per page option. Thanks.

A thread ban is really not that harsh, mate.

Get over it.

Is it possible to check who was banned from a thread and for how long? All I can see is the 'Bans' link from the page bottom, but that's for the entire forum.

Y'all better leave Meirl alone. GAF has a feature that if 5 reports are made on a post, the user automatically gets thread banned, until mods review it. With his 25 confirmed alt accounts, you get a perm/ip ban. That's why I'm taking his side, so that I don't get yeeted from GAF.

50 posts per page is canon!

Three more.

Hopefully that isn’t annoying to the mod that has to deal with the report. Please forgive this little bit of fun.

And you got me in trouble. You’re on my bad side now, lol.

Kind of glad, because that would be hideously abused the second it went public, hahaha.

Hey, I'm just the messenger man. Meirl wants to take over GAF apparently. So let's use that report button sparingly, unless it's for Meirl alts.

Also, why not use the dark mode theme?! *Trigger intensifies*

If Xbox had a DLSS solution, then you'd think Xbox Series S would be able to do more than 900P on a cross-gen game
Gafers think Sony invented liquid metal, chemistry, and the universe. There's no helping the delusional bunch here.
Would love to know why the first user was banned for that innocuous post and the second user was allowed to have that post fly under the radar.

Because my post is actually aimed at a user for making a ridiculous claim and isn’t a blanket statement mocking the capabilities of a console.

That’s not how moderation works. There are over 100 million posts, endless opportunities to cherry-pick disparate examples. The mods action what they see, and err on the side of letting things go.

I would like to advocate for reducing @Archvile82’s ban. While his post was not acceptable, I don’t believe he truly meant what he said. My personal read on it was a post out of frustration vs truly advocating for murder.

I haven’t gone through his post history so maybe this is not an isolated incident with him, but I believe a second chance is worthwhile.

Out of all the innocent people that get shot on the streets why can't someone cap this (revomed by mods) the corrupted piece of shit.

I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but this woman looks so unhinged...I just don't know what to say anymore. May as well lock up normal people and release the mentally ill into the wild, let them take over, hills have eyes style.

Clearly were the ones who are mental discussing things with an open mind with level headed thinking 🙄
There is only one way to deal with people like this...Penectomy surgery then force feed there own dick. Then throw them into the worst prison in the county and hand them a bar of soap so slippery they will be bending over every minute...you know what happens next.

sorry guys just reading about shit like this does my head in, just disgusting.

Yeah he seemed very stable to me.
