You know technically most of what is discussed on forums is offsite. Interesting logic they have about what threads get locked and what can or cannot be discussed.

Sometimes stuff about the forum itself has to be discussed offsite.

Remember when transparency was a major goal of Resetera when it started? Let's count the things that haven't been transparent and require offsite "sleuthing" to talk about.

.The makeup of the LLC that was supposed to "give back to the community" (Cerium's name, Isamu Fukui, isn't even public knowledge on the site)
.Cerium's homophobic past
.B-dubs transphobic posts on Gaf (a thread was made, but no examples were given)
.The alleged acephobic mod that Ketkat uncovered (this was never resolved btw)

And that's just the commonly known stuff.

Then you got the stuff that's technically publicly available on the site, but tucked away in random threads. Stuff such as:

.Ketkat's permaban despite the site previously throwing a fit when she was permabanned for "dog-whistling" and exposing the bigotry of secret Era staff discords.
.Frank O Connor, the franchise director for Halo (AKA Stinkles) getting permabanned for racism
.The absolute failure of the Asian-Era summit
.Several marginalized groups leaving the site due to staff not taking their concerns seriously.
.Nepenthe being a complete psycho and antisemite.


Maybe if any of these things could be talked about without people getting banned, they wouldn't have to use "shady" places to find out basic information.

A long haul flight from wherever you are.
I got banned for correcting someone regarding something with China - no warning, no anything. I was just consider an agent for the Chinese government (yeah I live in China, but I'm Portuguese). I didn't give my opinion, I just stated a fucking fact that is easy to look up if needed.

I did as well! :messenger_tears_of_joy:

"Dismissing concerns surrounding institutional oppression and violence"

If I remember I was just commenting about daily life living is pretty normal not the dystopian hell hole they painted it as.

You left off pedoera exposé where they even had agents banning discussion on Reddit! GAF got flooded by long dormant accounts hitting the report button.

They think that China is a hell hole where people are constantly being oppressed, for some fucking reason. Oh, and that China is on a crusade to conquer the world.

But this is coming from a place where sinophobia is actually acceptable, so I shouldn't be surprised.

Yeah they are schizophrenic about China. You can criticize these selected stories, call the people victims but if you say China Flu or anything positive about living in China that's a banning. Even though saying Spanish Flu is somehow different.

It's all forgotten where covid actually came from and now it's all Trumps fault.

I remember you from the HaloEra, if I'm not mistaken. Didn't know you got banned there!


It's not open to free speech. I got banned for correcting someone regarding something with China - no warning, no anything. I was just consider an agent for the Chinese government (yeah I live in China, but I'm Portuguese). I didn't give my opinion, I just stated a fucking fact that is easy to look up if needed.

Because of it I simply restrain myself from even commenting anything regarding politics anywhere on the internet. People are not open for discussion, they just want to have their own being validated - you don't agree, you're gonna get hit by that ban hammer. Anyway, I remember GAF being more open to that, more inclusive to different ideals and ways of thinking. That's what a discussion board is all about, discussion.

Tis me. I got banned for calling "bullshit" by wanting to keep Halo threads about Halo and not nuking every stupid YT channel or tweet etc. They conflated that with their transphobic agenda and stealth upgraded me from temp ban to perma ban as they lurk GAF obviously. I'm happy for people to live their lives how they see fit, no harm no foul. GAF has evolved to being more open, a transition it has made quite well with members still fighting but at least appreciating a more open, free speech enabling and transparent forum. Apparently that's not something ERA appears to desire. I'm actually thankful for the ban, it enabled me to delve into the seedy underbelly of ERA and I'm far happier at GAF these days. Jokes are allowed, as is a good time.

EDIT: One thing I've noticed about ERA is a lack of worldly experience by the admin/mod team. They literally live in a USA bubble over there, typical of Americans though, most never even travel outside of America let alone hold a valid passport.

I love China, I love living here. The culture is amazing, people are caring, the language despite being hard is pretty fucking cool, and I love the way the chinese think as a community. They are welcoming (ok, there's a few bad apples of course) and I was surprised how much I love this place.

The virus was an unfortunate situation - I mean, I was stuck in a room for 6 months because the city where I live in is pretty close to Wuhan. But look now, I go to work freely, no new cases to be seen here (at least my city, some others still appear now and then). I miss home, I miss my family to death, but I would lie if I said I want to go back. I love it here.

For the average Era user - anything wrong in this world is to be blamed on Trump. I don't like the guy, at all, but the fascination with Trump on that forum is beyond ridiculous.

What the fuck, good riddance then. Just being back here gives me good feelings, I used to love GAF back in the day. Really good to be back.


And yeah, Era is basically a US forum. They have no fucking clue about the rest of the world, and like the country, they LOOOOOOOVE to police others. They just can't help themselves.


PS: I know I said I wouldn't shit on Era, but after reading a lot of posts here, I'm pretty ashamed of being part of that community.

the Trans Day of Awareness isn't really that important, they want to lock the CDPR thread when it comes out anyways!



also they would lock it for the whole week BUT TRANS PEOPLE MIGHT WANT TO PLAY THE TRANSPHOBIC GAME ARE YOU SHITTING ME??? LOOOOL


Almost forgot to mention, "LOL at Black Chamber and vestan are still totally supportive and on board", as if they wouldn't end up in their ban graveyard in 5 seconds if they disagreed. Get the fuck out of here with that shit lol.

Every time Trump tweeted anything there would be a topic on it. Even Trump supporting places didn't give his Tweets that level of coverage. Anything Trump says they'll bend themselves into the worst possible reading of it and just make themselves so mad.

I have a couple of outsourcing teams in China and I love those guys and girls. Great coders, very respectful, intelligent and super hard workers. Some areas of China have really increased their quality of life/community. I've been through families being born by them, visits in person and generally have nothing but great things to say. I treat them like family. Long ago before my own company my old boss left China to start an Australian company and he had such a great outlook on life in general. It really stuck with me over the last couple of decades in my own life. Typical of Chinese culture I suppose. Glad to hear about the virus in your area mate.

The communist nature of the CCP is where the problems are, in that respect I suppose ERA is much like that. Good and bad people within but the leaders are the ones fucking things up for the most part.

How do you find the great firewall over there? My teams have to deal with it on occasion.

Yeah, everything is going well. Just super worried about my folks back in Portugal, the situation is not that good over there.

One thing I love about chinese mentality: they don't mind your business. You are you, you have your own beliefs, you pray to your own gods, you have your own culture. Most people don't know but China is made of minorities. The amount of cultural differences here is pretty astounding. I love it, and they really respect each other.

Yes, they have their problems. But can you actually judge chinese people being happy with a government that took 800 million out of poverty? That put China as the second biggest economy? A government that gave them jobs and a house through social programs? This is what a lot of people dismiss - there's a reason why chinese people are actually happy with their government overall.

But the leaders being a problem is something present in basically any country. Those with power are deemed to fuck up somehow.

How do you find the great firewall over there? My teams have to deal with it on occasion.
I have my problems with it. I'm a computer engineer and VPN is my best friend. When Google doesn't work, Bing goes to the rescue. Luckily GAF works without the need of a VPN, but the connection is pretty iffy sometimes.

And good thing I installed WeChat on all my family member's phones before coming to China. Messenger and What's App is a no go for video calls here.

It's hilarious how triggered they STILL are over this dumb ad.


It's been awhile since I been over here, but yeah.. I think it's hilarious how so many of them are triggered by this ad or that recent cosplay of this character from the contest.. I'm all for LGBT myself but the amount of people losing their shit over silly things amazes me and you can't have a different opinion over there most of the time.

I consider myself to be part of the trans community myself and I think it's insane, I have no problem with this ad or the cosplay that happened with it.

RIP dude, you're talking to a wall of NEETs who have never worked or if they do have the most low level mundane jobs they complain about all the time.

There's you over in Poland doing you're end of project crunch being exploited for clicks by Jason Schierer so he can get his end of year bonus and sending his rabid pack of REEE dogs out on his command to get angry on your behalf by people that would never even get a chance to work for a top tier developer. They can't even code.

Hey REE why don't you send CDPR some Pizzas if you care so much?

So about the guy that was excited about that promotion he never wound up getting...



has he ordered a bride off the internet or something?

I live alone and barely get to see my fiancé. I am scared to get married because deep down I don’t know if this is who I wanna spend the rest of life with.


Has a fiance but lives alone? Doesn't know if he want's to spend his life with his fiance? Like a month after they supposedly got engaged lol.

I’m like 60% certain she doesn’t live in the same area right now and they did the long distance thing. I might be getting him mixed up with someone else.

and banned for "Bad faith trolling" you know, having a discussion and offering opinion and perspective when he's the one getting dogpiled and attacked ever since.

But this, isn't trolling.



come to GAF //devil// you're wasting your time there.

While extreme, never ending crunch that spirals on forever puts a lot of stress on people and affects their home lives and mental well-being, I don't think you can dismiss ALL crunch.

For many of us, it's just part of life. We had a project at my work last year that required early starts and late finishes for a fortnight, to launch a new website. Nobody complained. In fact everyone was really invested and wanted to do the best they could as they took pride in the project. We also all bonded over the experience and it was actually fun. Hard work, sure, but hard work that felt rewarding.

CDPR asked for six extra days from staff, and paid them overtime. The company have been working on Cyberpunk for years, I can't see that staff there would willingly throw it under the bus rather than commit to six days PAID work. I bet a lot of the team are proud to be working on one of the decades most anticipated games and are more than happy to put in the extra work.

Have any of the staff actually expressed their displeasure at the crunch? Do they need a bunch of ransoms on a message board to 'speak up' for them, whilst actively trying to sabotage the game they've all worked so hard on?

Just the ones that allegedly DM Jason Schreiers "Snitch box" and do his "Investigative journalism" for him. For all the evidence we have it could have just been someone trans from Resetera making shit up about 100 hours.

It’s really sad when I didn’t cuss, or said a single bad word out side of my opinion, gets banned for couple of days when the other posters cuss me in public and don’t even get a warning.
just because god forbid you don’t agree with them.
What a bunch of kids that never worked in their lives.

and this Jason guy man lol . It seems these developers really hurt his e feelings by ignoring him and giving him the middle finger. He try his best to get anything on them. One look at the replies on his tweets and you just laugh at how sad this person is.
I don’t even post that much in that forum. My whole account has been there since 2018 and I don’t think I even have 300 posts.
What a sad site man. Just had a mental image of a bunch of guys and girls in a room with all kind of colored hair and all have dildos in their butts.
You either get that dildo in your ass and agree with them on everything or you are out.

I am so out :/

Isn't he engaged to be married soon? Or was that a lie?

Another Nothing Loud thread. His bf is now living with him and disabled? There is no way this guy's stories are true.

Edit: Jesus christ he's full of shit:

Oh I have been here way before that idiotic site. I also used to have an account with the IGN board back then ( it wasn’t called forum for some reason lol )

this place was running by the same idiots running resetera now. I guess evillore gave them too much trust ?
thanks god they gone. This place is million times better since they left.
Oh and while at it. I am buying CP2077 day one just to piss them off when I brag about it on that site that I got my copy lol.

“ please don’t buy their game please so they learn how to support trans people” how about fuck off, bend your cock and shove it ass ?
Don’t want to support a game because a gender .these people are so insecure they are the laughing stock of everyone. The word pathetic doesn’t even cut it.
