-----------------------------------------------------

Important notes :

- English isn't my first language.

- The people will speak about aren't pedocriminal per see, but they're certainly pedo-apologist, or what I call pedo-minded people. At the very least, they use some dangerous pedo-apologist rethoric. That's not the kind of people you want potentially to exchange or be close to minors, at any point.


As an incentive to read it all, I'm putting a quick summary of the problem : Basically, I found some pedo-minded people and pedo-apologists on one of Resetera's most important and most secretive Discord Server. I went directly to Cerium - Resetera's owner - and not only did he do nothing about it, but he defended them and blocked me when I confronted him about it. Those pedo are still active in Resetera as we speak, nothing was done against them by Resetera's staff.

I'll try to back up every claims with proof and make it as clear as possible.



Some little context :

I won't disclose my real name, but I was a Resetera's member known by the pseudo Celine.D.Sykes. I won't lie, at first Resetera was cool. It was mostly safe for a young woman who liked video-games, I even intended to be a moderator at some point. That was before I discovered Resetera was full of disturbed and dangerous people. Some weeks after I subscribed to the forum, I was invited to a super "secretive community" related to Resetera. I was invited by a member named LordKano, after a quick exchange through Resetera's private messages. I also became somewhat casual with Cerium, Resetera's owner, even if I don't remember exactly when/how. Let's say we use to discuss together for a couple of months.

This super "secretive community" was a discord server. This discord server was basically the backroom of Resetera or a kind of Resetera's "boys club". A lot of the most active and prominent Resetera's members were (and still are) partaking in it.

In this discord server, you could find people like :

- ZhugeEx, one of Resetera most proeminent admin, who's very, very active in it. He probably has more than 2000 messages in this server and is online most of the time.
- Emily Rogers, who was one of Resetera's most famous admin at some point.
- Mat Piscatella, an employee of NPD and one of Resetera VIP members. Again a very active member of this server.
- Jawmuncher, one of Resetera oldest moderator.
- And many more.

Proof of them being there :











I'm only listing those above-mentioned people so you know that this Resetera's Discord server wasn't some random Resetera's discord. It's important to precise that the people I mentioned just above aren't the pedo-minded people I'll talk about. However, I'm still wondering if most of them did ignore what happened under their noses or not. I'm sure some of them knew, but for the rest, that's up to them to clarify. Still, I would found weird that among all those people, I was the only soul aware of the weird discussions on this server, despite being there for only some weeks...

There was also some of the most active Resetera's member :



To give more context : the process for subscribing to this discord server was quite locked and intricate. You had to be invited, then validated by mods and admins, wait for some time and then, there was another process to be able to browse the server. I don't remember the whole process exactly, but I remember it was a pain in the ass. Pretty suspect for a simple Nintendo Discord, right ? Keep reading and you'll understand why.

To make a long story short, I quickly realized there was something weird on this server and someone told me casually that pedo discussions were rampant on this server. He told it to me like I wouldn't care. Problem was I did care and I decided to dig a little. In my research, I typed three common keywords in the Discord's search bar of this server : "underage", "pedo" and "16 years old". I had the time to type some others, but with those three keywords only, I found many proof of the pedophile tendencies or pedo-apologist tendencies of a group of persons, among the most active in this server.

Here, you have Hammerdin (same pseudo on Resetera), talking about how ambigous age is subjective :



Hammerdin, telling how a 16 year old could look like J-lo (Jennifer Lopez), a common pedophile rethoric : "But, she was looking like an adult".



Hammerdin again, refering 32 years old preying on minors as "players" and normalizing it.



You can also see "Lonely1" (same pseudo on Resetera) telling us pedophile jacking off to drawing of underage persons is fine.



Lonely1, telling us how he will never say what he really thinks about pedo on Resetera, in front of many Resetera member and the admin of this discord server. Everything is fine.



In the two following screencap, you can see two Resetera members, "Casionet scam" (Casiopao on Resetera) and "Llama_waifu" joking about craving for minors and risking jail for it. *"Manaka" (17) and "Rinko" (15) are two underage girls from LovePlus, a japanese dating game.





KuwabaraTheMan (same pseudo on Resetera) bragging or complaining he got banned for saying that it was fine to sexualize minors.

Nemesis (Nemesis162 on Resetera) telling how he's willing to sacrifice himself to tell us "lolita aren't underage".



This same Nemesis, bragging about having graphic depiction of underage kids having sex and "going below 18, but above 12" - because he has some limit to his pedo tendencies /s

In the following screencaps, you can see Kano (LordKano on Resetera), gg2xac, Caviar and Eolz (all same pseudos on Resetera) discussing about this thread : https://www.resetera.com/threads/gamer-arrested-after-rape-overheard-during-online-grand-theft-auto-session-read-op.83416/ You can see Caviar having some concern for the pedos.



Kano about how Resetera and the moderation team know "jackshit about pedo"



The famous pedo rethoric by Caviar : "18 years old people have sex with underage people all the time, adults are no different"



Them searching for age of consent in the US, state by state.






Kano informing his little friends that the age of consent in Europe is 16...



... Only to be answered by LuigiBlood that, "yeah" he "love this".

In-between, Caviar is wondering why america isn't willing to sexualize teenager and by teenager, we know he means 10 to 18.





I didn't have the time to browse their entire discord, but discussions about the normalization of pedophilia were rampant. It was basically everwhere in the discord. Fuck, someone calling himself "Lonely1" and speaking about how "pedophile tendencies are quite normal" and "age is just a number" screams like a pedo to me. You have another one who calls 32 years old adults preying on minors "players". What the fuck ?! That's pedophiles vocabulary. And why are those discussions so common on a Resetera discord server ?

When I learned about those people, they're tendencies and the topic of their discussions, the choice wasn't easy. I could have dig more and find more (I did to some degree). I could have disclosed the information publicly... Instead, I decided to play it fair and went to Cerium immediately. I thought he would take a good decision. That was a mistake. Below you can see how the conversation went.

Here is the number he had on Discord back then, even if I suspect he did change since then.



You can see it for youself. I did show Cerium a small amount of the proves I gathered and asked him to take per-emptive actions against them, since it was dangerous to have those people being active on Resetera. He refused. I insisted many times, I asked him to look into the other proves I had. He refused. All he did was typing and erasing his message for something like one hour (or two ?). He kept telling me how he was busy with something else, all the while he insisted earlier that we should speak about it now.

During this long conversation, Cerium never asked me to show him the other proves I had. Wasn't it the bare minimum ? I suggested him to do it but he immediately went into full-defensive mode. As you can see in the discussion, he played the devil's advocate to defend those people. He told me he was too busy walking (wtf ?), but he had the time to research the mangas some of those people were talking about and read a wikipedia article about it. Telling me how it was basically nothing. Yeah, full depiction of underage people having sex is barely a problem, right ? /s

Let's make a quick pause here. Is craving for minors or find excuses to pedophiles something criminal or even illegal ? No. I would have went straight to the FBI if it was. However, not being illegal doesn't make it moral, especially when there are minors in the Resetera communities, some that I knew personally. It's not a surprise, it's a video-game board after all. Then why Cerium ? Why taking the risk of exposing those minors to those pedo-apologists who think "age is just a number" and who casually joke about craving for minors ? It just isn't a risk worth-taking when you're in charge of a community. It's just a terrible decision and a recipe for disaster.

Resetera bans a vast of people over petty reasons on daily basis. You disagree with a mod or a narrative ? You're banned. You're not progressive enough by moderators's standards ? You're banned. Yet, Cerium decided against taking any safe actions against those people. We're speaking about a handful of deviant people, nothing more. Is Resetera short of 10 members ? I don't think so. Yet, Cerium refused to do anything to those people. Was he protecting them because they were part of a selective Resetera's boys' club ? I don't know myself, I don't know his motives and I let you judge on that.

Back to the subject :

While I was discussing with him, he went absent for 40 minutes straight. I was waiting for his reaction, it was 4 in the morning for me (Belgium hours), but the guy was too busy walking. During that time, I was finding more and more proves on the discord server. It was crazy.

At some point during the conversation, Cerium outright blocked me on Discord in a very petty manner. We talked for months without a single problem, as long as I was this nice and naive blonde girl. He was very cool with me. But as soon as we spoke about real, actual concerns, he rejected me as a valuable person to discuss with. What I brought to him threatened the "fantastic" community he built. Worse than that, I just threatened one of the most protected and most proeminent boys' club of Resetera.

If you read the discussion, just before he blocked me, you can also see that he went as far as accusing me of bringing this problem up to him only because I was upset of being banned (permanently) from Resetera.



How is that even related to me or being banned from a video-game forum ? I was banned four times from Resetera, as you can see on this infamous website :

https://resetera.kiwifarms.net/search/actioned?u=Celine.D.Sykes

I'm transparent, you can see what messages got me banned and judge for yourself.

NOT A SINGLE TIME did I brought the problem to Cerium or anyone, despite being fairly close to some mods or even to him. I never said a word, never contested my "sanctions". Cerium didn't even know I was banned permanently until I brought up the pedo concerns up. I never cared about being banned from anywhere. His ridicuknowlous accusations toward me were just a pitiful attempt to shift the blame and close the discussion forever.

Of course, ZhugeEx also blocked me on discord too. He also went as far as asking my ban from the infamous secretive discord server immediately. Probably to prevent me to gather more proves.

Is that how you consider someone who was delicate enough to warn you directly about those problems, in person, instead of sharing the story publicly ? Is that how you consider someone who's warning you about pedo-minded people being rampant in your community ? If you want a reason people are afraid to speak, there it is : if you speak, you'll be ostracized and isolated.

I don't know what happened after that. I just verified, the members I'm talking about are still very active on the forum, to this date (15/06/2019). You can find their profile, their pseudos are ggx2ac, Hammerdin, KwabaraTheMan, Nemesis (Nemesis162), Caviar, Hammerdin, Lonely1, Llama Waifu, Casionet Scam (Casiopao on Resetera), LuigiBlood. If someone has an account over Resetera, screencap their profile and their recent activity, before they change pseudos or something like that.

Hammerdin erased a lot of his posts and erased his avatar too, probably to cover his ass. I think Llama Waifu changed his pseudo too, I don't know what is the new one.

All of them still here, potentially discussing with minors and all being fine on Resetera. Yeah, Resetera's staff isn't afraid to publicly ban people who defend pedophilia. It's against their rules. But what about what happens behind closed doors ? What happens to the people known to have pedophile tendencies and participating in Resetera ? It was one single Resetera's discord among many and mind you, I could only type a handful of keywords before being banned from this discord server.

So, now you know it all. Talking about this wasn't easy, you never know how people will react and I probably should have talk about that sooner. I tried, but I was in a difficult situation myself. I didn't have a place to live (I still don't) and I had to move from house to house, from Belgium to France. The situation was dire. I'm also a shy and introvert person, I don't like to cause problems to anyone. However, I just had to. I saw something and I said something, but nothing was done, months after. Resetera is very quick at throwing pedophile accusations (THQ Nordic, 8chan...), let's see what they'll make out of this and where their moral lands.

You can block me Cerium, you can't block the internet. You fully endorsed all your community's moral crusades, but what about your own moral, your decisions and what the internet think of it ?

I'm not internet savvy enough, so I decided to post that on Neogaf because I hope it will get traction here. Now, it's up to you to give this story the attention it deserves.

I'm done posting. If a moderator can erase the "don't post" part of my title for better clarity it would be great. If a mod could also rearrange the post for better clarity, it would be cool too.

(I have more elements of course, I'm keeping some stuff on my work-place server, just in case, just in case those people chose to defend themselves in bad faith).

I don't think anyone is gonna care over there.

I imagine that anyone who brings this up will face a quick perm. Or rather anyone who doesn't downplay it.

But I am sure its a good thing to make public. They are a site that allows minors.

It's not about arguing about lolita. Read it all. It's about letting pedo-minded people with an attraction toward underage people going rampant in a community. A community where some members are minors. Giving those pedo-apologist a platform, while being aware of their tendencies because they don't even try to hide them. You don't find it weird they act like that, discuss those stuff, brag about it while some of Resetera most prominent admin is here, in the server, spending most of his life there ?

It's about the staff of Resetera being aware of that and letting them be active on their forum. It's about Cerium, Resetera's owner going into defensive mode and refusing to see more before deciding to take actions.

It's about the irony of throwing accusations towards everyone who's not them (THQ Nordic, 8chan, Dr.Disrespect...) of endorsing pedophile or just being pedophiles while in fact, they let pedophiles going rampant in their own community.

Finally, pedo-apologist and pedo-minded people being "common" on internet doesn't make it ok.

GAF is no stranger to pointing out the hypocrisy of ERA. You're in good company, but please don't let it consume your thoughts. Play games, enjoy the hobby, enjoy the community.

Wanting to fuck kids in a woke way is fine until you get found out publicly and then they throw you under the bus to save themselves.

Whew lad at ZhugeEX asking for your ban when you show proof. That's a proper worry.
