Thanks so much for sharing this. Very insightful. Any chance those devs would consider posting here? I hope they know they'd be more than welcome and not criticized
Not likely. The industry may hate on Era away from public eyes, but you're not gonna see any non-content creators or indie devs go on a public tirade about the place. There's a perception among some that posting on Gaf would be seen as equivalent. Though I think the 2017 issue is a bigger reason for a lot of them than anything else.

That said, a much bigger reason you won't see a lot of them come back is dedicated hobby forums have just kind of grown obsolete from an advertising perspective, and one can grow a community entirely through other means. The only other reason anyone would want to post on one is the kind of community that had already been cultivated, and as I said, the place is a friggin pariah to large swathes of the industry.

Oh, and fun little anecdote. Not going to name names, but I know a guy at 343 that rolls his eyes every time he hears about Era and wishes Frank O'Connor (Stinkles on Era) would stop posting there. He's told me others on the team feel the same way, but I don't know who.

Found this on KF. This is what happens when they leave their safe space and try to interact with regular people


Love it.

Crawl back to your mums attic bro.

I hope Joe Rogan can recover from missing out a platform of a few thousand unemployed losers though.

Hey, asshole, they're not unemployeed. They work in grocery stores, and do chores around their mom's house so they can buy V-bucks.

Not suspended. If it was suspended it would say suspended. The account was deleted. One of the Era admins probably threatened to dox him if he didn't stop.
He got into an argument the other day with some of the followers and I think he just said fuck it enough. Just my guess.

I am more surprised at how they can keep O'Connor on the team. The dude is repugnant.

Is there proof of this?

GAF's reputation on the internet is no where close to being some backwater terrorist forum like Reset is.

At worst, whenever I see negative comments about GAF from other sites, it's always about pre-2017 drama. But no one has said modern GAF is a completely untouchable place.

From what I’ve seen, some people associate GAF = Era and that GAF is “woke”, but they’re usually heavily misinformed.

The easiest way to eliminate the confusion is to look at the screenshots shared around.

If you see the purple theme, it's obviously from Resetera. And that's where a lot of comments of hatred are directed at.

But if you see a Neogaf screenshot from after 2017, almost no one is mocking us. I've even seen people link to Neogaf and defend us.


This thread was passed around a lot on the internet and people immediately realized we're not the same.

I think he's a dick too but not for era reasons lol
Agreed. Don't care for him because he talks a lot but hasn't made anything good in a decade. Same with Jaffe.

That said ree is full on bitch eating crackers with him. It's comical

There's no public proof of anything I've said (at least among developers rather than influencers) outside of some subtle hinting from industry people on Era itself like what that Skyrim dude said before getting de-verified. This is either stuff you'd find in developer discords or just first/second hand accounts.

Like I said, the perception, while there, is secondary to just not finding forums useful anymore and individual developers wanting to stick to communities they've cultivated themselves on places like Twitter and Discord and whatnot. There could be absolutely no perception problem with gaf or era or wherever and a lot of these people still wouldn't post there.

Do I think it would be nice if Gaf became a hub of gaming discussion among industry people and insiders again like it was at its heydey? Absolutely, I just don't see it happening.

Oh god, I really hope Era genuinely makes Otherkin a protected class. IIRC, there were even threads about how not real it is from trans posters and is basically the same as what Rachel Dolezal does. Pretty sure even mods/admins held that viewpoint.
I demand s summit with the Otherkin folks!

This is a scandalous post. How do you have any sort of credibility doing independent analysis if you start the piece off with a disclaimer? Imagine it now - the broadsheets reporting on Afghanistant.

Editorial disclaimer: We'd just like to say that we in no way support donations to Al Qaeda, and we actually think they're a big bunch of cunts. Now sit back as we analyse if the US did destabilise the area by opposing Russian foreign aid.
Funny they complain about the people they disagree with withholding their own money and call them idiots, why don't they pull their funding for giving in, oh that's right, they aren't providing any.

Many of them stated they were cancelling their Spotify subs before the thread got locked since Joe discussion isn’t allowed 😂😂😂😂
They don't give a platform to Joe Rogan. You know, the most popular interviewer in the last 20 years. They are afraid that Joe might talk some sense into these simps. They can't lose any more of their little bees from the hivemind.

What exactly did he do to them? He seems as "controversial" as Bill Maher (who they do signal boost!!) in that sometimes he'll say something that people don't like, but it's usually worth a discussion.

I think some serious soul-searching is in order when you need global pandemics and natural disasters to make your political ideas appealing,

He questioned whether Trans Women should be fighting Non Trans Women in combat sports. In addition he has people on his podcast that they don't like.

It seems most of the names you can put to faces in the "Alt Right" are people who don't 100% agree to their Trans views. Why they give those people the White Supremacist label is confusing to me tho 🤷‍♂️

I mean he had Bernie Sanders on there. He’s had plenty of liberals as guests. Questioning the whole Ma’am’s in sports thing though is a surefire way to get cancelled by the Ree.

Im sure Joe’s 6 million Twitter followers are hurting bad over it.
