To my defence, my cite to you contained a slight humorous undertone. I mean, Dave Chapelle. Come on. Amy Schumer is even more known here. :p

And yes, it is pretty ripe coming from me. Not like that i haven't mentioned that already in this thread, so i reckon the smiley you got didn't know this either.

Edit:


That is a perfect summary of the points brought forward, but no. If you truly think i am trying to shut down this thread, then yeah, that's not what i was discussing. If DunDun could do it, then i don't see why you couldn't.

Nice off-thread link by the way, you may want to read why that was posted (An addendum to a different gif) instead of bringing it forward as an example of ''See? He still posts about it so he is accomplice!''. If that post was not made, it wouldn't have changed a difference to your post.


And this is just a full-on cancellation of all points made and shows you didn't read it wholesale. I guess i should make it clear once more - I don't grave a return to ERA. Please
Yes, do consider yourself cancelled.

make whatever threads you want IMO. most threads posted there are just stuff ripped from someone else on the internet anyways. i guess as long as you give credit then go for it.

i wouldnt just rip entire threads tho. that would be a whole lot of trash and hot takes. maybe just find a topic or OP and quote them and the discussion can go from there.

People left this site bcs they were intolerant and judgemental. They judged @EviLore without the facts. They continue their circle jerk on a daily basis so let them be blind and ignorant in their echo chamber of irrelevance. They needed Trump to happen to smack them back to reality. In the end we all reap what we sow and nobody escapes the fate we make for ourselves.

I understood the OP as can I or someone just copy an OP from there and post it here. So my answer is nah bro don't do that.

Make your own OP same as everyone else does. Based on what some have said here, they ain't putting much effort into many of their OP's anyway.

They don't own the rights to news stories from sites we get them from. I am sure they use the same sites there.

If they are a source of information, then credit them. I haven't heard of them getting leaks other than Corporate approved leaks ( If RE2 sells well they will make RE3) or not really leaks... leaks (Jason says it's not Ghosts 2). But if there are any give them credit like any other site.

If we're sticking with the 'Ex lover' theme, are you playing the role of the beta best-friend who sticks up for the former lover while secretly trying to get into their pants?

Because your impassioned defenses seem to reflect that.
I post on both, so... yes?
But since I'm on that site too, I think I'm already in her pants. :messenger_sunglasses:

I'm not defending ERA though. I just would rather GAF be something other than Not-ERA. If ERA was just a random website, and had no relation to GAF, I don't think anybody would really care about it here. That's how I'd like GAF to be: It's own separate entity.

But I'm also not in charge, so I'm not vying for anything. It just seems like a weird thing to focus on, that's all. Why put so much thought toward something you don't like, you know?



I agree in general but some of the posts are really funny.
At least we CAN talk about them though. I wouldn't be suprised if a person linked to a neogaf thread got banned.
The one and only time I posted the same response on ERA and GAF, the ERA thread was closed within a page or so. The GAF thread is still open. I think that speaks for itself.

era is literally not gaf though. Just look at the way they post and talk about things.
They add -era at the end of everything like gaf has and still does. They just can't let go.

Let that be their problem then. Why repeat the same behavior?


I feel like that would be a huge step backwards, rather than forwards. Having such a rule would only server to homogenize us with ERA rather than help set us apart.
Noooooo! That is definitely NOT what I'm saying. If that's the message coming across, I'm clearly not phrasing properly.
I don't know how to put it more succinctly, though, but I'll try:


I don't care what people post about. If it's something I'm out of my element in, or absolutely abhor, or find boring, or whatever, I simply don't post.
I just fail to understand why a site like ERA, something people clearly dislike, comes up so often. A thread devoted to an entirely separate site seems odd to me. We don't have any threads about any other sites, so why should ERA be special?

I'm a fan of deep conversations. I like when people get into the nitty-gritty and posit lengthy posts with tons of information and evidence. That's my absolute favorite part of forums. As stated by many people, ERA has a tendency to avoid such things. I just don't want my favorite site to fall into the same trap. I feel like the sooner we forget that ERA is comprised of ex-GAF members, the sooner this site will be able to flourish once again.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

I feel like part of GAF's identity (that helps set it apart from ERA) is that people here are free to discuss what they'd like to. For example, someone posted the image of "games you're not allowed to talk about on ERA" along with ERA's longstanding ban on anyone there even mentioning NeoGAF.

I get what you're saying about it being a weird thing to fixate on, but you seem to be advocating that the people in charge of GAF put some sort of ban on talking about ERA. I feel like that would be a huge step backwards, rather than forwards. Having such a rule would only server to homogenize us with ERA rather than help set us apart.

Forum format: copied from NeoGAF
Forum software: copied from my publicly disclosed migration plans that were scheduled to take place the same week Reset was founded, delayed somewhat due to them bombing NeoGAF into the ground with gay porn et al
Forum nomenclature: copied from ours, -gaf:-era, |OT| (a designation I came up with)
Resetera Clear: copied from my original publicly disclosed plans for NeoGAF Gold
Forum theme: copied from ours, using the same developers
Politics forum: attempt at copying ours, reverted due to gross mishandling

I may as well be running their forum for them. They're trash at this gig, and it shows with the dumpster fire they have on their hands after a single year. We have vastly better sysadmins and devs in @Gromph and @Palliasso , we have a vastly better mod team, and we have more mature, civil, thoughtful users by a landslide.

Um no. We’ve been busting our asses here to cover everything

It’s not the thread creators problem that just a couple of people that participate everytime
Right on. I made a Picross S3 thread and didn’t get a solitary reply. Plebs need to wake up to the GLORY OF PICROSS!

Not gonna stop me from making threads though (when I have the time). :messenger_sunglasses:

They’re great. They are well priced and deceptively content-filled. Perfect for Switch. I somehow managed to put 80+ hours into Picross S2 and I felt I was burning through it. They seem to have just the right amount of content where as you finish one edition, the next one gets stealth released. That’s how it is for me anyway.

I would guess one of the reasons ResetEra gets mentioned a lot is the steady influx of people getting banned over there coming back over here wanting to talk about it.

I wouldn't have thought it's the same people posting in the Off Site thread now that was six months ago.

I don't post there anymore, and honestly don't miss it. It's kind of refreshing not having to worry about the cult like opinions, getting banned for even thinking about saying something different or bans for saying common sense things.

I do wish this site had a 50 books/50 movies challenge however.

From my little time here I can say that Gaf has its own identity. For starters, we dont have "massive bans". We don't have to be worried about discussing, you can notice this actually happens here. Agree or disagree, that little matters. You could be even be banned if it was Era.

GAF has its own identity. As part of that identity, we'll discuss what we choose to, without RedneckEra attempting to police and shut down threads like this one (while simultaneously talking about Reset himself in another thread). Register another account if you haven't already and go back home to your masters, Red.
That is a perfect summary of the points brought forward, but no. If you truly think i am trying to shut down this thread, then yeah, that's not what i was discussing. If DunDun could do it, then i don't see why you couldn't.

I already made the Redneckerz Reset Connection in April by yall though I was crazy, well now who's crazy? ;)

So they get kicked out of the Matrix and come back to life. I think most people will get things out of their system and fully participate here. It’s the ones who can’t let it go you may want to keep an eye on.

I just don't know if it's too late to do it because we're already 5 months in. I may be one of the only ones who's kept a list.

Also don't know if I can create threads yet.
