The silver lining here, is maybe some of you guys can like... just have less internet drama in your life, and go out, and like live life. I'm sure that the buddies you made here are out there reforming the communities elsewhere. If there were OT threads that were helping you here, there's other places like sub-reddits or other boards where you can talk. If you made great friends here, I'm sure you'll be able to find them.
Remember, you are choosing where to spend your time. You are not compelled to stay here. Find your friends, and go chat with them elsewhere. Exchange numbers or FBs and like... chat and shit, you know?
There should be a "Missed Connections GAF" sub-reddit
"More_Badass, I remember you on GAF. You were cool. I miss you. Let's talk Magnus Archives"
Edit: You know dude, you could have just made a separate politics sub-forum and just had that properly moderated.
I think this is an issue he has to address. He created a toxic leftist environment instead of the positive one he thought he was making.
The idea was alight in theory, but this level of irony was needed to shine light on the problems this sight had.
A return to videogames is welcome, I just hope we can create the more positive environment that was originally sought out.
It to late for that brah, you think it going to go back to that? And guess what politics are a part of our everyday lives. And you got was never about that people used to get called out for being racesi or sexist all the time.Normal for you maybe. This site has literally thousands of lurkers and former banned members who just wanted a place to have fair and balanced discussions about games/movies/nerd culture in general. NOT be preached at by holier than thou, sanctimonious types and told they are Nazis because they are to the right of Joseph Stalin.
This USED to be a place where EVERYONE could have a voice as long as they weren't being pricks or arguing disingenuously. It CAN be that again.
They all quit in disgust over his sexual assault. Read their personal Twitter's.
The problem is mixing politics with games. I want to play games so I can enjoy, I do not participate in politics because it is stressful plus not everyone finds politics fun, not everyone can understand or appreciate the Trump-laden or US-political stuff because not everyone lives in the US.
Because I do not believe you in any way, shape or form, I would like to formally request that you permaban me from NeoGAF as soon as you are able to do so.
The answer to people having issues with mod accountability is not to make moderation anonymous. Thats the exact opposite of what should be happening if you actually wanted to address peoples concerns on that front. Its entirely tone deaf.
Also if you really want to save this community you should step down and pass leadership to someone else. The community has spoken pretty clearly on that front.
Great to have GAF back and it is great that GAF is returning to it's roots. I come here for the video game chat it is my number one source of news and reviews of games.
Whilst I understand that Off Topic will return in a limited way I really do hope we get sections were we can discuss TV/Films.
I personally do not care what happened outside of this board, it is really none of my business. I just want to get back to talking about games and TV shows.
But GAF wasn't brought down because of that it was right now because his do you sexually harass the womanIt's just obvious there was a large minority here that wanted any reason to bring down GAF. The trolling over the simplest political issues was overboard.
Most of us just want to talk about games around here, and not what floats your political agenda.
It to late for that brah, you think it going to go back to that? And guess what politics are a part of our everyday lives. And you got was never about that people used to get called out for being racesi or sexist all the time.
Why not post this interview in the opening post ? to provide more details of what happened ?
Beside NFLGAF being missed, the mental health thread was very worthwhile IMO. There was a lot people helping other people there.
But it's also good we can regroup and focus on Games for a while.
