Wouldn't have been me. I found the ignore function a bit petty to be honest.

I had no problem witnessing all the shit people would spout out, but I have no time for depression/suicidal posts.

Oh, and the one guy that defended beating his kids. Had to put him on there becuase I would have broke the cunts fucking neck otherwise.
Hah, i thought this was Psychocrasha but it hitted me, that was the guy who sent his kids up state to his grandparents, being in debt but still having multiple cars and the wife working for him a few hours a day for no income. And then a month later claims he is going on a trip to China.

Had an amazing PM with this guy, eventually he got ERA banned because it really was too much r/thathappened. Did his username proud.

Could also be a great GAF thread for the history books as it read like a typical GAF thread from back in the day.

I wonder how China went for him.

Just spotted this thread and have to get this one off my chest:

So Resetera extended my ban to 1 month (Originally 1 week) basically because I created an account here :D
They actually check the "introduction thread" here.

There are members on that forum I quite like but 99% are constantly looking for a witchhunt.
Their most popular threads are often about social issues (and you know how those threads go)
They have discussion threads where they want no discussions.
There is of course a line to be drawn about respect to other members.

They weren't mature enough to have a conversation about the apparent "sexism" in Valkaria Chronicles 4.
I consider myself to be a left person, I'm actually a gay man with mostly gay friends but I find that forum absolutely embarrassing.
Myself and my mates were checking out this page one night over a few drinks:
https://twitter.com/reseterabanbot?lang=en
Check out some of them if you haven't.

The irony is that they THINK that they are such good people who value discussions.

I feel like in the real world, they're fucked.

Your experience is not unique, sadly.

But I'm glad you're here to hang out with us. I hope you feel comfortable expressing your thoughts and discussing topics with fellow GAFers.

Ofcourse they don't. Having a 20+ page thread over it over how wrong it is.

I remember trying to mention this in the Xbox ERA discord. Was immediately told to go fuck myself and that Evilore is a sex offender. All i did was say that the girl in the clip they so hated actually defends herself. Covered that extensively back in September.

Funny thing is that recently i took a look at that Discord since its the only ERA discord they somehow haven't axed me yet from after axing me randomly of all the others... 6 months after my site ban, and those folks that told me to go fuck myself and being completely immature are still there.

So i take it that ERA is a-okay with actual 9 year olds.

I feel like in the real world, they're fucked.
They wish they were. Then there would be something exciting going on in their life.

Your first mistake is trying to have a rational discussion about a topic..if you dont two the line you are gone

Your second mistake is believing that you and your opinion will be respected there

Also
I hope you didn't use the same username as you did on era as Excelsorifs discord hitsquad will report you and you will most likely be upgraded to a perma
i would honestly suggest you stick around here and post in some of the threads...we may not be as busy but you can certainly have an adult conversation...we are not all trump loving nazi transphobes :)

How the hell is he Bernie Sanders Thread already 63 Pages long? This is ridiculous. And it is by far the best candidate out there for 2020
Hate drives postings. I have followed the first 7-8 pages and it was a crazy hate train. It felt like most would barely prefer him over Trump... It's sad to see for a forum that self-describes as a left leaning one :(.

This is the worst thing. People I used to have nice discussions with will be afraid if myself or others post on their tweeter or discord pages for various topics. The RE police will force them either to block users or be harsh to them.

That forum digs deep into your personal life.

Intersectionality has very little in common with old school USA leftism. Era over time is purging itself of traditional leftists. Bernie is a traditional socialist so he sees the world through the prism of class and wealth. Intersectionalists see the world through the prism of race, gender, and sexuality almost exclusively.

No they are not, the few who torture themselves and keep quiet are...well few. The board is a marxist, racist echochamber and as soon as you step out of line you get pounced and get the Gestapo called on you.

Theres a reason they are protesting a movie like Green Book today winning best picture, instead of celebrating it.

Yikes, they have gotten even worse than 7 months ago.

I've never seen such a sad, depressing, and angry forum in my life.

https://www.resetera.com/threads/rotten-tomatoes-ends-negative-pre-release-user-reviews.101964/

They are clearly pissed off in that thread and keep labeling people who clicked "Not interested" for Captain Marvel the following:

fuckwit nazi, alt-right fucks, incels, sexist babies, sexist nerds, sexist snowflakes, angry manbabies

Yikes...who's really angry? They are by far the angriest out of anyone online regarding this Brie Larson fiasco. Posters on forums that are politically diverse or moderate, or slightly right leaning, are NOT really angry at this - more amused or just thinking it's ridiculous, but they aren't making a huge stink about it.

If I could post there, I'd make a bold reply:

"Honestly, you guys sound more angry about this than any forum I've been to, be it politically agnostic, moderate, or slightly right leaning. Other forums are either laughing at this, expressing disappointment in Brie, or just pointing out how rottentomatoes foolishly let "the trolls" win by giving this so much negative publicity.

And many of those RT comments were written by women. Also, many of them are actually humorous in nature, just lighthearted poking fun at Brie Larson. You're all lumping the negative comments into the angry, alt-right troll or bot category but it's not as simple as that"


Ever since that "This site isn't fun anymore" thread.....the more reasonable ERA members have gradually been leaving to find more "balanced" discussion boards.

And the result is...it's mostly just stereotypical SJW psychos there now.

Oh, BTW: Most of them can't think for themselves. They just parrot each others' posts for this reason, and maybe because their vocabulary is just limited to modern political terms and curse words.

The left used to be more humorous and free thinking....wtf happened? Things flipped and now it feels the left became the very thing they hated.

They are the radical left. Their "you're either with us or against us" mentality is not liberal in any way.

As for me, I'll maintain that I'm more of a Barack Obama era liberal...not an Ocasio Cortez-era liberal.

I was a lurker there for a while, they used to just give out warnings. Now they are handing out bans left and right for even the slightest infractions and sometimes not even that. It's definitely going to blow up in their faces like you said. You can't have such heavy handed moderation for very long, because you end up scaring off new members and members that don't share their far left agenda. People can only put up with walking on eggshells for so long.

They are doing exactly what Bish and his cronies did here. It’s like the lessons aren’t learned and history is cyclical. It’ll all blow up over some small thing and then ther will be a new Reset board and so on and so on.

It’s easy to blame everyone but yourself for certain things in life.

But NeoGAF was thriving even under Bishoptl's questionable moderation practices, with a lot of activity. NeoGAF did not collapse from overboarding moderation or anything, a large part of the community broke away for outside reasons. So how can NeoGAF serve as an indicator for Resetera's eventual downfall?

Well everyone remembers how shit gaf was and it got progressively worse until the purple haired ones tried to wrest control from evilore with some half assed attempt at framing him combined with a toxic lead up with mods activity destabilising the community.

The similarity is...ree is destabilising itself through batshit insane moderation and an overarching senior community which is toxic and eating itself

All it would take is one senior mod to fuck up...some light ddos attacks and the community would turn on itself again

Only a matter of time tbh

They have a gorup of people leading the site as far as I understand precisely to be able to oust one person if the others agree their conduct is inacceptable. And the mods are less open about their identity than NeoGAF mods were in the past, which will make doxing attacks that lead to scandals less likely. I do not want to say Resetera has no chances of failing down the line, but I also see no indications of it happening anytime soon.

Define "thriving".

I was a member during that period of time and it was reaching GameFAQs/System Wars level of shitposting, dogpiling, and groupthink, punctuated occasionally by users who put in the effort to make OTs.

I don't consider high activity to be a sign of "thriving" when GAF was/is supposed to be a forum for adults with higher-than-average level of discourse. As I mentioned, a lot of that activity was dogpiling, one-line drive bys, shitposting, groupthink, and overall low-quality posting.

The dogpiling in particular -- something you've complained about regarding the post-split NeoGAF -- was rampant.

I don’t actually think it will be a mod that will destroy the site...I see them one day supporting something and banning anyone who disagrees with them and then social justice warrior style the site implodes when the support of something turns out to be something bad.....sort of like ...bill cosby is a great comedian and we’ll ban anyone who says otherwise....whoops he’s a rapist

I got banned on Reset today over some SJW garbage. GAF is a way better community and web forum. I don’t even want to post on Reset again.
Lol I just checked the ban page from there and it seems like a fairly minor joke you got banned for.

You got a duration pending, so it’s likely to turn permanent on you.

You are already perm'd.

Seriously it's possible that they don't permaban you but it's pretty standard operating procedure for them to act like this. They dislike it when people discuss moderation practices unless they are being directed to their moderation team, at which point they will proceed to ignore them

Yeah it's uhh... not a community that thrives on open discussion.

Weird because when I just logged in, it said ban will be lifted on Monday. I don’t understand why they treat everyone like they are in a Gulag. Lame.

I promise you, I would be thrilled to be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time, but ERA moderation practices tend to have patterns to them.

The goal is to control information, btw. Why they would do that I'll let you guess.

They will do me a favour by banning me permanently. I like gaf way better anyway. And that forum is like communist China.
