I like the boys club behaviour, sense of community, themes/memes running, mods hands off approach, and even some of you guys posting here (no homo).
I imagine meeting you guys in real life for some beers would either be the greatest or most horrible thing ever.

That the crazies left Neogaf for good and we can watch them now over at ResetEra - feels like visiting a zoo and take a look at the apes throwing poop at each other.

Lurked for years, but only signed up a little more than 2 years ago.

Great forum. A good mix of gaming, off topic and politics. The Reeeee thread, Ban thread, and Ban tracker are personal favourites too.

People on this site are great and moderation control seems to be spot on - which is putting the hammer down on stupidity. And they don't get tangled up being SJW hero taking political sides. A recent dumb Reeee example is the Chic Fil A discussion where people are gabbing back and forth, then some mod storms in says Chil Fil A is homophobic, does a last jab saying Popeyes is better and then locks the thread. Nice maturity there Reee mod. People can't even have fun bickering about a fried chicken fast food joint.

More importantly, saying that Popeyes is better than Chick-fil-A is a crime against humanity.

Feels pretty relaxed and, within reasonable limits, people can just chat shit and joke about whatever.

The community is at a pretty nice size just now where there’s a good amount of discussion going on but not so much that you feel like whatever you say gets lost in a flood of other comments. I don’t post nearly as much as a lot of people but I still feel involved in a way I didn’t in oldGAF.

Reactions are a good way to show you support a comment or say you find it funny without replying with “this”

Mod contributions in threads are pretty minimal. Which is good not because of the mods themselves but how people used to fawn over them. In retrospect when you combine that with the arbitrary bans it was pretty bad for the culture here. The ban tracker also helps keep them accountable to the community.

The politics forum keeps that stuff mostly contained in there.

Stuck in 1Q84.
I was allowed to return after a dozen or so appeals (Pathetic +10, i know. You don't want this ''skill'')

But its also saying something that it was possible, either way.

Compared to 2019 GAF, there is a lot more going on and the ban page reflects exactly that. But it makes it easier to sit back and enjoy and take things in stride.

I think Papa Papa and Cunth Cunth are actually alright. Just different. But compared to the crazy year that was 2020, they actually are normal, hah.

So what do i like most? Well, i can just make posts and hope they are useful.

You don't have to constantly walk on eggshells. You can have your opinion and it is OK.

Also it is a very inclusive community. Where else on the internet would people born with no taste like TeezzyD TeezzyD find a home.

So yes, I like it. Maybe some people are a little to obsessed with the other place.

For them:

I stand erected.

A stiff one.

I am not sure which one it was though. So, an anonymous one.

Can one get pregnant through a mailing system?

Either way ill let you know in 9 months time whose face it resembles.

i like that i can talk about video games freely and share my thoughts/opinions without any fear of being banned for them cause they are the wrong ones.

there are some immature users who bring the place down by their constant attention seeking but not too big a problem since they are put on ignore.

NeoNeoGAF is a social construct like Papa Papa ’s male penis. Biological NeoGAF never died, just rose again harder and stronger.

Are you an old gaffer on a new account?

Yes. I lost access to my old account when I left university a few years back and before that I left the site on a whole for 4 years bc of what it became after Bishoptl was banning people for calling him out on his bs. I think you had to use an offical email address back then to sign up for GAF.

I not sure if anyone remembers this but my breaking point on the old GAF reached its limit when OverWatch was released (back when I was a big gamer) and people were complaining about the lack of diversity in characters even things like the lack of old women and how Mei was too fat or skinny.

My close and personal friend was banned for saying people were being crazy for arguing over crazy and minute details. (After he got banned and I left soon after).

GAF like people evolved into something better. It certainly has become a much more tolerable and thought provoking place.

I notice some old posters no longer need to tip toe that line for fear of being banned (even when they not breaking TOS). Its great not having that constant fear over you, just obey the classical rules and you’re golden.

I think I’ve been here long enough that I’m happy it didn’t go completely south, it was looking touch and go for a while. For me seeing it grow again is redemptive. A big fuck you to cancel culture and everything with it.

1: The classy moderation is one of the best I've seen here, compared to other sites.
2: You can have your opinions heard here, and there is more than one response that you can say.
3: The guys here are more friendly here than on other sites, it feels more like a united community.
4: I like how the site went from a catastrophic low to nearly pre split activity in 3 years.

There’s a strong masculine undercurrent that is warding off the fragile social vampires.

Thats unfair, I didn't have time to test Chick-fil-A in my trip to NY.

Will I get banned for saying that though?
