Those long posts don't cover that red neck boy
The way they changed my ex. I was genuinely suicidal before I managed to remove her lazy ass out of my house, and it was only by browsing sites that were referred to as hate sites was I able to understand the way she acted. I would have never believed such a 180 had I not experienced it myself but having done so it's all too clear that many of the most influential members do not have the best interests of those coming to them for help in mind.

There are good members in the community. The prominent figures are not those members.
As terrible as that may be (And i mean that in a geniune sense), i don't think that makes it right to take that thread as a whole and conclude that they aren't helping.

What is an indicator from these Little Helpers that makes you say they don't act in the best interests? Mind you, i am talking about the mental health thread, not what they say or do outside of that.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Honestly, there are far better places to go than Era for mental help. If you (general you, not specific to Red) are at a university, they usually offer free therapy and a place to talk to. It is a wonderful thing and greatly helped me when dealing with depression. It also didn't keep pushing this mindset of "everyone is out to get you" like Era seems so keen on pushing.
Perhaps we should cheer for the clock when it is right once. :)

I think forums can geniunely be of help, but i also do believe that you shouldn't have your whole personal character rely on them. A lot of the people at Reset going into these threads seem to be at their ends whim: They already see therapists, they already have medication. For them, ERA is just another outlet.

And that's all it is. Just another outlet. They treat it like it is their livesaver when often it is not. Seperate depression threads are sometimes made by people who feel very little empathy for anyone that ain't them. As such, it is hard to share empathy to these people: After all, just 5 minutes later they find a minority racist or something like that.

Its such a unnuanced narrative and character development going on, i don't feel Reset should encourage that, but subdue it instead.
 
DigitalOP continuing to race bait. This time, he keeps going after Fortnite.

But it doesn't stop there. He has to throw in the mandatory "forced diversity".



White people can't be trusted to vote. White people are not allowed to make video games. What's next guys?
Man, I'm getting tired of this. So much obsession for skin color.
We belong to the same species, we are the same.
 
More anti-white racism.

https://www.resetera.com/threads/the-dark-truth-about-a-blue-wave.79484/#post-14697669


Again, if someone had typed out "black people can't be trusted with their vote, they will fuck everyone else", you would get called a Nazi and charged a virtual hate crime.

If liberals continue to talk like this, how can we not expect white people to be a little more "anxious" in the future? Resetera clearly shows they will throw white people under the bus without a second thought.
Exactly, if you keep telling white people you're their enemy, at some point, those that aren't self-hating virtue signalers will believe you. Every other race look out for their own and form communities, but the second a white person looks out for another white person or says they want to live with other white people, they're basically a KKK member. I've never heard anybody say Chinatown needs more diversity, all these Chinese people shouldn't be allowed to live together and have their own neighborhood.

If we go back to my first post in this chain I was replying to somebody who suggested the member make a thread about their issues. Such a thread would inevitably be dominated by the people whose advice I would be most cautious of.

Perhaps they mean what they say; I still wouldn't turn to groups that are filled with such hatred for advice about mental health. I wasn't joking when I claimed they literally steered me in the opposite direction of what I needed to do to get my life back on track.

To be frank, I feel like they are breeding hatred towards white cis guys on purpose. The attitudes towards said group on the board are legitimately unhinged, and you can see them on display constantly. The self loathing (and the utter hatred and contempt from trans members) paint a gruesome picture to me. =/

It does seem that with each passing day, the intensity of those threads gets that much more...well...intense.

I doubt anything happens, but it does seem to feel different now.
 
So you are willing to condemn the entire gaming section as well because of the people in that one thread? How about the people who only post there for sports? You guys sit in this thread only talking about and posting the very worst of what you can find while completely ignoring the other 95% of the sites threads and members. Whereas I have talked to these people and made friends with them for over a year. They aren't what you want them desperately to be. The site has shitty people just like every other online community, but that doesn't mean they speak for everyone. And its foolish for you to pretend that they do.
I would love to see the moment when he finally clicks to what is going on
 
Maybe they should be encouraged to find themselves a different private platform...

Am I dick for reporting it as a breeding ground for extremist ideas? Where they are championing the ideas of violence against right wing media personalities as well as elected officials?
Where I hope their provider catches it before we have a terror attack like we've seen come from *gasp* Alt-Right breeding ground?
Where "and I'm not sure if this is racist" but rhetoric and hate is a constant topic pertaining to white people!
YIKES!

Nah, who would ever send their provider screenies, links etc..

I wouldnt do that. That's would be deplatforming.
 
Yeah, people need to report stuff to tips.fbi.gov

That Tucker Carlson thread was a dump fire, someone asked to murder him and his family and got a week ban. On the other hand people got permed for saying those GOG/CDPR tweets might have been misunderstood

No they will just flip the right for free speech argument and how they are a gaming forum....when in fact they are basically antifa branch off pretending to be a gaming forum
 
Every time I've wander over to the other side of that forum the thing that i see that drives me crazy is phrases like " See this is why we shouldn't reach across the isle."

Like when has that ever fucking happened there...
 
Out of boredom, I browsed through a couple of threads over at resetera. It felt like slowly poisoning myself more and more with each new post I read. To each their own I guess, but why do these people do this to themselves? People are soooo passive agressive and mean over there. Say something even only slightly "controversial" and you are being dehumanized in an instant. This is not a place for civil discourse, this is an asylum.

There is this one guy, excel-something, who is insulting people left and right and mods do nothing. What is this even?

Being part of that community more or less is like deliberately asking to take a bath in hot goat shit. But like I said, live and let live.

Yeah I saw that aswell. Everybody was cheering to physically harm this guy, his home and family. It's like the silent hill alternate reality form of a forum.

Oh him......he/she/it I think has made over 20k posts in a year and is pretty much known to bait users so they can be reported by him and his discord hit squad of report button mashers.

Basically an epic asskissing backseat mod
Pretty sure he has no job or life outside of the forums as I could not even think of a way outside of using a bot you could make over 20k posts in a year....pretty sure he is on his last strike

I’m pretty sure Excel spends all day every day doing nothing but posting there. Every single one of those posts were written by them I’m sure.

I remember when she was “accidentally” banned for like 5 minutes and when she got back she talked about what a harrowing experience it was. Something about the world fading out and going into full blown panic mode.

I don’t know if mentally she would survive a 1day/3day/week ban. Never mind a permanent one. That forum is literally some peoples entire identity.
 
They always throw in the *sigh*

Fuck orange man not progressive make me depress

*sigh*

Also there was a guy in the latest shooting thread who called for a ban on a member and called them inbred for liking guns. Of course he only got a warning for attacking a fellow member. The guy who said you should own guns will be banned next time he posts for a ridiculous reason of course.

Expansive Ellipses
I'm in two minds about the wisdom of reee exploding.

- Staying together has the benefit of containing the crazy in theory. In practice it rather concentrates it, and infects anyone who gets too close, and being a united front its influence is dangerously large.
- If it explodes, the fuckers will come here and ruin what is a pretty damn good forum. I suspect that once you remove the crazies via some quick banning you'd end up with the forums leaning more to the left but generally within sane range as without the toxic influence people wouldn't be radicalized so much. Being forced to interact with normal people might help moderate their views as they disperse around the internet. Alternative possibilities include them migrating to RPS to make things even worse there, or forming reee 2.0 which I suspect would be even more hard-core. The best-case scenario is two or more camps forming in different forums and a bit of forum war kicking off, diluting their power as they fight among themselves.
Wouldn't worry about it too much. Reset's eventual collapse is not exactly a far-fetched premise. I have strategies prepared for most scenarios. We have a capable, experienced, hand-picked team that can adapt to rapidly evolving situations. XF2's tools are powerful, versatile, and logically oriented, and we've extended them with add-ons and customizations besides. Any attack vectors previously utilized will not prove fruitful if attempted again. Good fucking luck hurting my feelings or convincing me that NeoGAF should be more like fucking Resetera. :messenger_ghost:

That being said, if overflow or containment becomes a genuine concern, preferably don't hand the keys to another random imbecile. I'd rather maintain PurpleGAF myself as a public service just from a harm reduction standpoint. Christ.

I think she must be shagging one of the mods.

Either way, she’s an utter lunatic.
 
Resetera moron quits a video game over a dance.

Good riddance. Lets hope more of these freaks abandon video games forever.

made a thread this summer:
https://www.resetera.com/threads/im-lonely-im-depressed-what-is-wrong-with-me.51863/

I'm turning 30 soon and I realized I have no friends, no romantic life, I have nothing I have accomplished in my life. I work retail, I live with my mom. I try to be happy, I try but, people always spit down my backs. I just want someone to be my friend, anyone. Just to say Hey hows it going, ya alrite? But, even that is too much. I feel like such a loser. What makes it even worse is I'm not fat or ugly. My outward appearance is good, I'm not fashionable but, I try to be hip.
This is not meant to make fun of the poster, because I genuinely feel sorry for him..... but with so many serious, personal issues, how the fuck can you get worked up about Fortnite dances.

Excel was the first user that made me understood to avoid any topic she would post in when she was still on GAF. And kept making my eyes roll so much too, she got more aggressive over the years I think.

I don't usually post in this thread , but i have to say. Anyone that confronts her directly on Era ends up with a ban almost 70% of the time. I think she moonlights as a mod and user. There's no other reason to why she can operate with total impunity

It sucks and I feel sorry for him but personally, he should seek help and steer off things that aggravate the negative emotion.

Not to generalize but sometimes I do see posts that are gloomy in RE and at the same time they're kinda tied to angry political stuff, anger towards other people's opinions, and anger towards... Anything in general. Of course it sucks to be depressed and anxious but won't it also help that they steer clear off those stuff because other people definitely have beliefs not matching to your own which can cause "issues" and political stuff you don't agree with and seek professional help?

Also, people consoling and trying to help in the forums is considered as professional help. Sure it's nice to hear they try to help you out but that's not enough.

Yes, I recall she was one of the most vocal people angry about any and every even borderline sensitive issue out there.

I don't think there's any "shagging" going around. I think when Reset was created they kinda chose to share power with people who are hyper passionate about social issues, and maybe out of solidarity and perhaps a bit of pity and semi-empathy gave it to those who were most vocal about their own issues and problems in the world.

In other words, the more crazy you would get when a social issue was brought up in old Neogaf, the more likely you were to get mod rights on Reset.

I'm pretty sure, if we did a Venn Diagramm of "shit job", "mental illness" and "ERA post count above 10k per year"......

If yesterday's Tucker Carlson thread showed anything, it's that ERA is slowly turning into "Stormfront for Communists, LGBTs and POCs".

I don't understand this one. Fortnite is not the first video game to have dances based on pop culture yet it's the one everyone goes crazy about. World of Warcraft has Soulja Boy , League of Legends has Thriller and yet nobody complained about those ones.
Not just that. You can spin this shit around like “hey look at this. Epic is embracing our culture and they put our dance into the game. That’s great.”

It still triggers them because Fortnite was developed by Straight White Males! :eek:

There's no winning with SJWs. The minute you bend backwards for them, they'll find something else to call you racist.
It's best to let them screech until their lungs pass out.

I don’t think there’s an existing big company today where only straight white males are employed. But yeah dunno..
 
Actually it's simpler than that. It's big and popular so it's a perfect opportunity to push their agenda. If it was less popular they'd give fewer shits. The bigger target gets them the attention they crave.
 
Honestly Resetera is just a perfect example of how grievance and victimhood culture just further damages, already damaged people. Rather than take actual action to improve their situation, instead they impotently lash out at an "unfair" world and wallow in the injustice of it all.

A long time ago on this forum I wrote that being a geek/nerd whatever is not a badge of honor. Being around, and one of, that sort of social group growing up I realized that the "cool kids" most certainly didn't have a monopoly on being shit people. The important lesson being that regardless of what challenges you face socially, it does not reflect or absolve issues with your own character and outlook.

The problem with identitarianism, particularly in youth cultures, is that it provides an ideological escape-clause for this realization. Resetera is full of miserable people who are trapped in miserable situations and mindsets, but have the view that its always somebody else's fault and their weakness denotes their "special"-ness constantly reinforced to them.

Its a death-spiral.
 
convincing me that NeoGAF should be more like fucking Resetera.
But they have a good structure, even better users, great active mods, and a hard working staff. Why wouldn't you want to be more like Resetera? /s

It's sorta insane how much they post in a day. They spend their entire fucking day on the site, who knows if they do anything else.


In other words, the more crazy you would get when a social issue was brought up in old Neogaf, the more likely you were to get mod rights on Reset.
And don't forget if you were colored or in any type of minority because that was a legitimate reason for some people who are mods now.

I am not allowed to have any sort of belief in "free speech extremism" (please don't try and tell me this is a right wing standpoint; I realize a lot of the alt-right has been (much to my annoyance) trying to use such stances as a means of pushing racist/anti-semitic BS but the idea of having an extreme stance on free speech in itself isn't right wing.

If I try to complain about people saying bad things about the people saying bad things I can be banned for "both sides rhetoric".

I am not allowed to promote sex positivity within the realm of video games in the sense that I don't have a problem with fanservice in video games.

I am not allowed to discuss Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal there or say anything positive regarding the fanservice aspects of the game. I'm not allowed to discuss Omega Labyrinth and can be banned for saying anything positive about Nekopara's fanservice (which is what the game is for). I am not allowed to say anything positive about Colin Moriarty.

I'm fairly certain if I complained about the concept of deplatforming as a means of pushing away right-wingers or had any sort of sympathetic feelings towards libertarians it would put me on thin ice too.

But those disagreements where people do get banned happens far more often there than most other sites.

I've resigned myself to not stating my opinions on certain topics there since I fear it would just result in me getting banned. No use in being sympathetic towards Senran Kagura or being happy about the character designs in Xenoblade 2.
Yup you can't talk about anything really they don't want you to talk about on there. Like the fuck why can't I talk about Sony censoring games, sorry it's a pedobait apparently. Like wtf?

are they really hosted on GoDaddy

it all makes sense now.
It's funny they swapped maybe 3 hosts before going to the one they are on now, and even then that thing fucking sucks. They praised having a Google Employee, Amazon, and MS Employee, but as far as I remember they all dropped ship after the site came up, or at least one stayed.

But gotta love how their site is down so much regardless of this "experience", but I'm gonna guarantee these fucking people are low level interns.

I by myself could do a better job keeping the site up, and maintaining it.
