The site is 95% full of cry babies, Antifa, and people who label everything racist if they dont agree with you.

You mean the polar opposite?

I was N.Domixis, permed because I joked about a convoluted way to make a new review site, lmao. I'll never understand why you two site hate each other. 

It's because they wed cabbages. The savages.

If it's just to bring more political thread on this site with a huge left-leaning tendency, then we should tell them to calm down and this site is probably not the best suited for their taste.

It's a huge melting pot here, plenty of Centrist,Communist,Liberalist, etc ... (didn't see any anarchist though ...)

So you hate those with an opposing view then? ;)

A lot of them are just going to call everyone over here a racist or nazi for disagreeing on which flavor of ice cream is the best or some dumb shit like that.

Been a member of both sites for a while, though admittedly I frequented Gaf more frequently and lurked here. I tried to stay away from political discussions because I noticed they were quick to ban people who had any kind of differing opinion. Hard to have legit discussions that way, IMO.

I mostly posted in Nintendo threads and sales threads so hope the Nintendo and Sales community is good here. I ask that you not stereotype Gaf posters. There were a lot of good posters on Gaf (and a lot of trolls).

Welcome, our Nintendo community is probably the strongest one the site.

Come on Perma, NG had threads dedicated to harassing people in real life, even, digging up post history to flame arguments was allowed by the mods but you could get banned for questioning or sustaining opposing views and so on. You don't get actively disliked by 80-90% of the folks outside because you are being anywhere close to being a reasonable, non-toxic community. The way you thin Mar's post implies "hate" just showcases the sort of straw man, black and white mentality NG thrived on.

I see this was your first post here - you've been a member lurking longer than I've been posting, so if nobody has said it yet, welcome!

Might as well say it's the only community here.



Keep Neogaf refugees out. We need a complete ban on people from Neogaf, until we can figure what the hell is going on.

 

Joke post, calm down

What have the majority of the individual posters done for you to make such a statement? Most of us were no different than the average poster on any other forum. That said, I’m seriously considering finding another site. No reason to be here if it’s going to cause animosity.

Bro don't be like that. People just have an archetype in their head for Gaf users. But a lot of users here are cool with you coming here.

Thanks. I just don’t see why people judge individual posters just because of a forum they posted on. Isn’t that exactly why people didn’t like Gaf? Not all of us were like that and plenty of us just wanted a community where we could talk about games we were passionate about.

Exactly. And I'm sure you'll find that most of the regulars here are friendly and community-spirited if you decide to stick around DeuceGamer. Don't let one or two people generalising about GAF users put you off.

I’m just not interested in causing any controversy. If that’s what it leads to or if we aren’t welcome by the majority of the community then I won’t force it. I’ve actually been a member for a very long time here but since I mostly used the database and only lurked the forums I’m going to be viewed as an outsider. 

I guess I don’t understand judging someone due to a site they were a member of and not the intelligence and contributions of their posts.

Thanks.  said:
I... personally don´t like the idea.... I like VgChartz the way it is.

Why do you think anything would change? I’m sure most former posters are like me and just want a community to join and discuss games and the gaming industry that they are passionate about.

To be fair, a lot of us didn’t enter those threads. I specifically avoided the majority of political threads because I knew my politics didn’t always align with Gaf. In fact I frequently disagreed so avoided those threads to avoid a ban and because it wouldn’t have led to any real discussions. Still I enjoyed the (mostly) intelligent conversations around sales and the gaming industry. As I’ve said above, I’m sure there are plenty of posters like me and why we shouldn’t stereotype all posters.

I don't think anybody would actually judge individuals just because of the forum they posted on. But it is fun to make gaf the butt of jokes, just know that very few people, if any, will think gaf member = x, y & z by default, rather than actually reading what they post and thinking of them as an individual.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I'd rather not have them here, quite frankly.

I think you'll find that basically every site will react the exact same way.

If you're a cool person, great, just go around and be a cool person. If you get butthurt over someone saying they aren't very fond of NeoGAF, even after everything that's happened, all I can do is suggest you try to get rid of that chip on your shoulder. It's not going to do you any favours.

NeoGAF has a terrible reputation for a variety of reasons. Does that apply to every individual poster? No, of course not. But even in your post, you seem to be well aware of why people view the site the way they do. If you're not part of that, then great, why are you taking offense in the first place? It's not like I'm going to (or even can, if I were strange enough to want to) ban you for not liking what I write.
