gaf needed a paid email to join as well, so most likely is true. And it didn't really stop that from taking off either.

But did gaf require that at the start before it took off? 

 

Agree with Rol.  Now all those Nintendo fanboys and ps4 haters from their mediacreate threads can stay well clear of here. 

Did you the Switch reveal thread on Neogaf? There's a reason why everyone outside of Neogaf called it Sonygaf.




I'll give it a shot I guess. Interested in how it turns out.

As long as gaf is up and running resetera or any shoot off won’t take off. In a year Gaf will back at the top and no one will be talking about recent events and the offshoots will have been forgotten.

on top of all that I can’t see this industry building a gaf competitor basically over night. Also I don’t know anyone with a paid email address, so good luck there.

what made neogaf popular are it's dedicated power users, they provide most of the content/discussion

imo if a critical portion of the power users migrate to resetera neogaf will lose it's status pretty quickly, as 99.9% of users just don't have the creativity/dedication/charm to attract people to the site on a daily basis

So what you're saying is... the reason for VGC's lack of (relative) popularity is all Rol's fault?

It´s fucking nuts how all it takes to bring down a community of thousands built up over the years, is one Facebook post.

Probably wouldnt have take off like this if it wasnt for Evilores shady past.

Its' not the first time he's been accused of things like this.

That's true, Gaf was known as Hardcore Playstation fanbase forum. Mediacreatesales thread is the only place where Nintendo fans have a breathing room while XBOX fans are vanished from the existence on neogaf because of PS fanboys.

In fairness to him the other incident is what? He grabbed the ass of a girl who came up to him and was trying to get him to buy her a drink in a flirty way. 

I mean yeah ok ... it's not something I would do, but I don't think a person should be throw in jail or have to resign from work because of that. I've had women grab my ass before at nightclubs, I'm not going to go to their work and demand they be fired for sexual harrassment.

wait paid email? lmao I can't see myself ever paying for an email. People really got paid emails just to join that site?

Kind of. An email provided by your ISP counts as paid, that's how I signed up to gaf. So you don't technically have to pay for the email itself.

They got mass banned in 2013/2014.




NeoGaf was much more of a Sony forum in the early days, but during the Wii/DS era it became more neutral to Nintendo and Nintendo is widely considered the best game developer on the board I would say (EAD Tokyo especially). NeoGaf is pretty enthusiastic in pushing games like Mario Odyessy, Splatoon, Zelda: Link Between Worlds, etc. 

Nintendo still takes crap for a lot of stupid/odd business decisions it makes there, but that happens on every board.
