Just to clear things up here too. It wasn't his comment specifically. Not at all. It's more that the insane number of people who are VERY upset that I was positive about Gears 5 to the point where they're making bad videos about it while clearly not understanding at all what's even being said. It's too much! I was just super fed up and done.

I'm mostly on forum hiatus right now, though (for various reasons), but wanted to make sure that much was clear. I'm just irritated by the reaction especially considering the insane hours it took to finish that darn video last week.
Chin up man, pay no attention to internet nonsense and negativity, its simply not worth it, you do fantastic work, keep it up and I look forward to the upcoming videos( still need to watch the weekends DF retro video but will catch it tomorrow )

I know most of this thread is people dunking on ResetEra, but I have to say: I'm not a user there, never really considered posting in their forum - I don't think I'd get banned, I'm pretty lefty and with zero interest in culture war stuff but I'm stubborn and perfectly happy here (though I wish Gaming had less "censorship/SJW/whatever" threads.. :p) . That said, I'm really jealous of their OTs - they get dozens and dozens of pages.

I was looking back through some of the old OTs (such as this one for the original Catherine) and, man, I miss that level of activity. It was great - people don't seem too keen on OTs anymore around here.

It's more personable here, and I like it. They may have us beat in quantity, but we have them beat (by a lot) in terms of quality. I'll take less activity and more fun discussions over a plethora of reeetards sperging out any day.

Well, there's plenty of discussion in the other board as well - some users on this thread even mentioned one can ignore the politics.

And you're absolutely correct - we do have many amazing posters. I'm fine right here but I do miss the level of OT activity we used to have. Which is why I've been trying to get our OT schedule pretty aligned with all current releases. GAF hasn't missed a major release OT in months - which is encouraging.

OTs are one thing, but many of us loathe the days of a thousand one word posts returning to the forum and making discussion virtually impossible. Fuck that noise.

10k bans in under 2 years these guys are something else. How many does gaf have not counting that 2017 implosion. is it anywhere near 10k?

It was/is a damn good video. I don’t understand half to 3/4ths of the stuff that’s being said in those DF videos but they’re still enjoyable to watch.

For every one dumb fuck that speaks out the ass towards the work you do there thousands more who enjoys the final product in silence like myself.

Any who, back to lurking and wish you the best.

Surprisingly, most said no.

Going into that thread, I thought most would already be contacting each other to be roommates.

Simple. They ask them how many genders they know of. Anything above 50 is a candidate. Then they ask how many times they have changed their hair color during the last year. And, finally, who were the top 10 canceled people on the internet last week and what was the "problematic" with them (the trick here is you shouldnt mention them cause they are canceled, most fail this last test, only the wokest of the woke prevail)

They had a thread a while ago about how The Joker was going to be co-opted by the alt right. I can’t be bothered to look for it, but some of the users must have taken it really seriously.
Reeeeee is serious business.

D dark10x I hope you get a good rest from the hiatus.
Internet is becoming more toxic every second and there doesnt seem to be a stop and I think that almost everyone here knows how stressful and tiresome it's to deal with the mobs.

A lot of people love your work, but it's also OK to stop and get back to it when you feel like it. Your health is first, yes or yes.

Well I hope you're able to keep up the output from DF, I really enjoy the retrospectives, and your in-depth takes on all the tech. Even from a really casual perspective, laying out how stuff like the coprocessors on the Saturn work and such has been really interesting. Don't let the fanbois get you down.

Tried to register at Metacouncil.

They require working email address too and ban free addresses. Yet for over a week I receive no email to activate account. Tried a few times to resend confirmation email, no reply.

No way to contact them either because in order to do this I need to have account confirmed first.

I wonder if they are in contact with RE over the banned users email list. When I typed a new password during the registration process, same as the one I was using at RE, a notice appeared that it was compromised and I had to use a different one. Hadnt tried to register previously either.

My college e-mail wasn't accepted.
