Thats even more reason not to join, to be honest fuck the likes of shinobi etc, when gaf gave him a platform for his attention seeking and get followers with the leaks he got from there he never complained, but after he tried to do damage control for gaming companys like bioware and bethesda and got called out he bitched and left with his tail behind his legs. Trying to do damage control on the turd mass effect andromeda because he got it free and have firends there, he is basicly a PR idiot for some companys  He is one of the rats that got happy with all this because he saw one oportunity, they all want to be the new Evilore and travel the world 250 days a year.

I am gona stick with vgchartz for now.

 

I agree that it seems likely that an offshoot of the GAF community has been waiting for a chance and opportunity to start their own new forum where I would assume they'll have some ownership and power. Because otherwise this makes zero sense, there is nothing concrete to suddenly say "GAF is trash compared to a week ago". Nothing has changed except an unvalidated claim against the owner. And even if the owner is a bit of a dick.... so? Does anyone honestly think the people running that new forum are going to all be angels? like anyone would ever know anything about their personal lives?

I mean like you mention, jesus, Shinobi is going to be on of their higher mods and he/she put out total bullshit about Mass Effect in advance to mislead peps due to connections with EA. 

Some reason the folks at Reset think simply saying "we've got Emily Rogers and are going to make ALL genders feel comfortable" is some sort of groundbreaking explanation for why they're creating the forum, as if there aren't a million other gaming forums out there that are open to everyone. I think I read something yesterday about one of the mods like making a huge point to post on their discord that "just so everyone knows that we care about diversity, I've bisexual trans". Just feels weird to me. what exactly is it bringing to the table again? a group who hates the GAF owner or something? ...

Yea , he tried hard to damage control bioware, bethesda and ubisoft games. Aparently he started today for ubisoft assasin creed xD

And people dont know but he was the one who started the witch hunt for that microsoft guy that got fired when xbox1 got announced , expect thing like that for the new site too.

"unsubtantiated accusation "

EvilLore admitted to what he did.  The thing is;
He jumped into a shower with someone unsolicited, she asked/told him to get out and he did

That got people upset, which eventually blew up into 'Sexual Assault', and to people who hate Gaf,  that EvilLore is a 'Rapist'.  Personally I see it as an awkward thing that happened, though if I was a woman and that happened it would be a bad time for sure, to be vulnerable in the bathroom(naked and drunk) when that happened.

The other thing is...it then went into weird soap opera drama territory and being horribly and hilariously mishandled;
Leupp said, 'Yeah he got out, and we travelled together, and he didn't speak much to me and was kinda mean to me, but then later on we had sex and was in a short relationship'

And then you start thinking, hey wait, so it maybe he misread that at the time but there was probably something there??

And while this was to eventually come out, Evillore was busy telling his moderators about cults and kidnapping and victim blaming and shutting down the forum, essentially throwing gasoline on a small fire and putting a flamable curtain over it shouting to passersby, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU LOOKING AT???!!"

And thn we find out that there was some love triangle going on and that it could be a case of jilted lover/jealousy syndrome, at which point I tapped out and that's just some shit between those three people which should have never likely come to light.

And Evillore continued to stifle discussion, even throwing his previous mods under the bus claiming they were scared of user backlash which is why they left in his 'State of NeoGaf' post.

Account suicides ran rampant, with people being upset over the sexual harassment with some posting porn, one of which I saw with men fisting each other and obese women fingering themselves, which is always classy.

I like spome of the mods on the new forum, but I;m not sure how that'll play out, and I echo other people's sentiments about Emily Rogers and Shinobi being major players there.  No problem with them personally but I know their history.

I think I read it has Nibel, Zhuge, and Shinobi onboard as mods? They weren’t mods on Neo Gaf, but maybe that info is incorrect.  Not sure what to think to be honest. If the leave politics out, or don’t ban everyone who may respectfully disagree, then it will be interesting.

Or the new ioi!  anybody would live a comfy life with the money this site roles in. 

 

Anyway excellent post.. This is just classic power struggle politics.  They see an opportunity and they are trying to sieze it. 



Site is coming along nicely, now. Wouldn't be surprised if it became the more active forum in the long run. Are you guys going to register, have you?



One of Gaf's biggest criticisms was that it was a toxic hivemind, after GAF came back online and Evilore removed the politics section, it pissed off the vocal minority that caused GAF to be a hivemind in the first place, resetera seems to be comprised primarilly of those individuals.

Thus, and in combination with the more stringent registration rules, the result is going to be an even more concentrated hivemind, how anyone can consider that a good thing is beyond me.

The way a great many of them suicided their accounts on GAF after it came back up is more an illustration of the type of people they are when they're not putting on the puritan holier-than-thou act, namely posting extreme porn, goatse and worse.

No.



I can understand. It still doesn't take likely to dissenting opinions and has the same far left, partisan groups of people back on the old one. However, as someone who's not into politics that much, the frequency of posts on that forum is really impressive. I've never used a message boards with this much traffic. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for it and for GAF.



Resetera is like Neogaf 2.0. The evil wasn't defeated, it just multiplied itself
