My wife has been pointing out all the new little hairs I have filling out my crown. My hairline in the front hasn't come back at all (I have a single hair still at my original hairline... I feel so bad for it by itself...) But I'm okay as long as what I have left fills out.

And all it took was for me to replace all the testosterone in my body with estrogen....

Way to take everything out of context, but nothing is new.

People wanted to post in support of the staff post, but literally said they were afraid to get dogpiled. So I said it's cool, if you go in there in good faith to defend us, and you don't attack people, you're good

But nah gotta twist it all out of proportion like always.

Anyway, all of this is very funny because I never even had anything to do with any of this. But none of you care, you just want your pound of flesh. Well congrats, you got it.

I'm done with this shitshow. Enjoy your new Sales site.

I'll agree with statements in the thread that makeup is fraught and that it's often moved into black and white territory when it shouldn't be, but we also know how different pieces of looks can get weaponized to sexualize characters, which is kinda the whole thing we're doing in this thread.

Quote from: Siresly
I just find the concept of depictions of real people in a video game weird.

It must be bizarre for the computer people in these games to see that, but they don't seem to care. I guess the idea is that they'd look at that like we look at CG or animated depictions of people. But as a real person, it's weird to play a game presenting a CG world, with real people in it. Like...how does that make sense? How do you explain it? How do the characters in this world know what real people look like? Where did they get these photos from? Is Yakuza a parallel dimension to ours? You can travel between them? Who has this technology? Why are they using it to put photos of real porn stars on a wall in a video game?

They should put some kind of filter on those photos to make them look like they belong in a CG world.
Otherwise my brain just starts dipping down that rabbit hole.

Quote from: ShadowKingpin
I did this in 2011 after nearly 6 years of being treated so poorly at Kroger (I stayed because of the benefits). That environment was all about management bullying staff and in some cases doing it in-front of customers. So, one day I snapped, got on the intercom and said (I shit-you not), "I'm a wild turkey!" and proceeded to make a ton of gobbling noises. I walked out and flipped off my Supervisor while walking past them, as she was the one trying to mess with me in-front of customers. The reason I did the turkey was because I was known as the guy who did all of the intercom announcements for the Meat & Seafood Dept., and my turkey gobbles were a common thing around Thanksgiving every year. Looking back at it, I am still proud that I let that abusive environment.

When I -directly- asked Nepenthe, why they hadn't corrected any of the initial statements, and basically doubled down on victim blaming, it was again, dismissed, with a "Sue me" comment.

Of course, because you were presenting it in a way that she didn't even mean lol, she doesn't think it was victim blaming and she doesn't owe you agreement. She admitted she had a different understanding of the article, if you want more than that that's your own problem. Her being an admin just means she does admin stuff, I don't know why you keep bringing that up like she has some special status, it's an internet forum lol she should be able to post like the rest of us, it doesn't mean she will always be right or people will always agree, you're taking this waaaay too far. If you care so much about how progressive this forum is then I'm sure you're familiar with Nepenthe being a big part of that for literal years so it's just weird people are so quick to throw her under the bus is all.

Some class privilege in this thread. When you grow up struggling sometimes the only thing you have is your reputation. That is why you should never insult someone unless you are ready to throw hands.

Lady is out here getting shit pay for a tough job to have someone come out and call her a bitch? Nah.

The american justice system is literally built on the idea that we should hurt people who hurt people, to show that hurting people is wrong. Don't act all surprised when you get hurt saying hurtful shit. (Note: I believe our "justice" system is busted and we should abolish the police and prison. That said, I am not going to act surprised or try to take the moral high ground when obvious shit happens. This shit is engrained in our culture.)

I wonder if it might help to raise these issues to influential elected officials like Ocasio-Cortez. She has been actively involved with gamers before, and cares for the LGBTQ community and issues. If more awareness could be raised there, I think it may help raise awareness abroad. Failing real change, provided the senate and presidency flips, they might be willing to place sanctions on Poland until they relent.

I'm actually a pagan who follows the Greek pantheon! And I LOVE all of the POC representation in the game, and the way their personalities are written. And you can still tell the writers did tons of research.

If you're interested, the webcomic "Lore Olympus" does some really interesting stuff with the Greek gods as well. However TW: Rape & Abuse, despite that its still very heartwarming and funny.

I have zero plans to stop reporting shitty posts as I see them and I fully expect action to be taken in some form. Whether that's actual bans or a very large post up front thrown in the face of the entire forum to knock off the shit or something equally strong is up to you. I don't really care if the posters posting that shit are long time forum users or not.

The right way is to not allow bigotry.

I only very rarely go over to the gaming side and this is 100% why, but also the fact that they refuse to moderate gaming side like at all (unless it's console warring which we all know is the most important issue of all time) because they don't want to alienate the bigoted users is just... ugh.

Quote from: Delphine
Because right now, and I'm aware this isn't something a lot of people want to hear, but our staff team is wearing thin. Most of us are exhausted, mentally, emotionally, simply because this job, in essence just is. We are often confronted to the worse this forum has to offer, on a daily basis, and it takes a toll on us all sooner or later. I remember someone in a post mentioning the fact that we have to take the higher ground and be willing to take any kind of criticism at all times, and that's generally the mindset I'm coming from indeed. However, that also generally leaves me drained, with poor mental-health, and needing regular breaks from moderating (or from even interacting with the forum as a whole) just to recenter myself and feel good enough again. This is, in big part, the reason of our staff turn-over. People get burned out doing this, and end up leaving because they couldn't handle it anymore. This is how we lost many of our minority mods as well (because the mental and emotional toll on us is very often THAT much bigger than for the rest of the team), who often are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to replace. I myself have already thought about quitting the staff team half a dozen times in less than a year already. The apparently common sentiment that mods are easily recruited, and that they easily agree to become staff, and dedicate their time and energy to this forum, is sadly far from our actual reality, and the reason why it makes any single departure that much harder to handle.

You know how everyone likes to laugh (or be disgusted) at Xenoblade 2 character design?  Hope you didn't watch the superbowl half time show, this could almost be DLC for the game. (https://youtu.be/pILCn6VO_RU)  Everything has to keep getting racier and racier I guess (don't forget the twerk off).   At least she has human proportions I suppose, unlike Xenoblade 2.

I think it certainly doesn't help the situation imo when one of the most watched television shows does something like that.  I'm sure people look at that and use it as a bar in some way as what's acceptable.  But it's not just the superbowl, you see that kind of in a lot of prime time media, especially anything to do with modern concerts.

Quote from: Finale Fireworker, post: 28800165, member: 1944
I was staff here for eighteen months. In that time I had to try to become an expert on criminal cases with no clear conclusions, on controversies in every industry, on cultural expectations across different continents, on major historical events I'd not heard of previously, on personalities I didn't follow, and on geopolitical conflicts nobody has ever solved. I would stay up late reading about topics that I knew were in the news, asking for feedback from people more familiar with the issue, and convening with the rest of the staff who were all doing the same to try to understand as much about an issue before we passed judgement. As much as people want to believe it is, this is not easy to do. This is very stressful, very draining, and you do it knowing that people will not be happy with you no matter what. You're criticized for not being fast enough, or people misrepresent the actions you took and why, and you will always be the bad guy no matter what.

People have this image of free-wheeling or rogue moderators who just moderate in accordance of their opinions. But I had to get so far in to complex situations and process so much information and perspective that I don't even have my own opinion on some things anymore.

We don't have to be ok with harassment but we have to understand we don't have control of what people do when this goes public and it's not our fault when other parties have forced out hand to now go public. We can't stop people harassing Jennifer about this, despite explicit warnings. If people want to, they'll find ways. That's the issue of social media and the disinterpretation phenomena where good faith discussions are replaced by anger, bad faith disinterpretation, boxing people into anti- and pro- labels, and harassment.

I know nothing about the person in question, but this is such a psychotic way of looking at things and the kind of mindset that leads to more Alec Holowkas.  It also handwaves harassment for "worthy" targets, but that's not something new for these kinds of people.  That kind of hypocrisy has been on display for years.

Are you trolling? That "one dude's blog" just talks about the event. The event itself happening -- young girls being invited to an island for a "cult" celebration of Leto -- is an indisputable fact.
nd until anything is proven by an official investigation, I’m taking that blog with a grain of salt.

You’re free to believe what you want, or you can add me to your ignore list

ZeoVGM shitting up the Carnage thread because it's not Disney Marvel. It can't be healthy to be so emotionally invested in children's movies.

The guy was a homophobe. Anyone who is mourning this asshole is part of the problem. Just a quick sample:

How do you hear that joke and think he's a homophobe?

it's common for someone as deeply closeted as Norm to carry that weight of self-hatred, using homophobia as a cover

Ahhh, there it is! The Kotaku 'I've known about it for years' journalism starter pack. classic.

I mean, I'm going down this fucking twitter rabbit hole trying to find an actual thing this chick did that you can have an actual opinion on, but its all 'they are an abuser' as a factual statement, but right now I'm at a thread where people say they feel abused if they unsubscribe from an email and get a follow up asking why, and I'm just fucking :mindblown

This is impossible. Slippery slope theory isn't real, it's just something that the alt right and etoilet use as a cover for their racism.

I'm sure saying that you dislike her would have previously gotten you accused of misogyny and being a gater, now the doors are open

Also kind of funny that in the twitter thread you have two women who each say that the other one abused her. Feel like that's the new future.

Was she heavily involved in the Gator wars? Because sounds like some inner drama that only anti GG actually know about.

shocking update from previous thread

Quote from: Uncle
ok all I saw was "dino" and a discussion about dumb indie developers so you made me remember Goodbye Volcano High and you sent me down a brief rabbit hole

  • embarrassing teen angst furry scalie game from canada is inexplicably shown at the PS5 reveal in june 2020
  • "KO_OP is a Canadian studio that is just as enigmatic as the games it produces. They place a heavy emphasis on equality. Hence, every person earns the same salary. Furthermore, decisions are made as a group, and everyone has equal input. This is vastly different from the usual hierarchical structure of businesses."
  • "The protagonist, Fang, is a non-binary dinosaur."
  • internet finds out that one of the game's writers is Kate Gray, a former Kotaku writer who posted CG child porn of harry potter and pokemon characters to the front page of Kotaku
  • based on all of the above, internet gives the game a stern side eye
  • developers, very sad, lock their steam discussion forums immediately after the reveal and hide in discord
  • game completely disappears from all radars
  • 4channers create a full parody game of Goodbye Volcano High before it releases, before even a non-cinematic trailer has been shown, called Snoot Game, which is released on itch.io in june 2021
  • canadian furry developers extremely mad, demand that itch.io removes the 100% legal and fair use game...which itch.io does
  • Snoot Game developers create their own website and continue distributing the game anyway (https://snootgame.xyz/)
  • canadian furry developers aggressively ban any mention of Snoot Game in their discord server
  • in their first update since the reveal, last month in august, Goodbye Volcano High was delayed to vaguely 2022

I said to myself you know what fuck it and played this parody game  :doge :doge :doge :doge

turns out it is actually good for a visual novel, if you like visual novels

it starts out silly and memey but by the end the characters are well developed and you care about what is happening to them, and it actually has a message and I really wouldn't call it a parody other than the fact it uses existing character designs
:idont

four vastly different endings, one really dark

main thrust of the game is
spoiler (click to show/hide)
the main girl doesn't know who she really is and due to toxic friends has chosen an off-the-shelf non-personality, where she just acts as she thinks she's supposed to act, but is a replacement for actually finding/knowing yourself

and you can help her work through this stuff, most effectively by getting over yourself and helping her get over herself with the help of others
[close]

honestly I guarantee you this game has a better story and themes than the real Goodbye Volcano High will ever have
 :notlikethis


so yeah, development on Snoot Game started a few days after the real game was revealed, and 30 anons working on it managed to release it almost a year to the day of the first reveal

they want to polish it up and release it on Steam and other platforms, where hopefully the Goodbye Volcano High devs won't be able to do anything about it despite their rage since it's free and clearly a parody

the fan game is so popular it has its own booru with 3000 artworks, shockingly most of it not porn, just memes and fandom junk

oh yeah also some guy accidentally emailed himself pics of the pterodactyl girl using his work email in a HIPAA environment, where the IT guys and his bosses all saw them and now consider him a pervert, and also his wife found them and they're going through counseling

meanwhile:

the actual developers spend their time harassing what remains of their own fans for accidentally referring to the lead dinosaur girl as a girl

:no1curr but in Bible: Directors Cut she was actually the third woman alive :snob

The first one (Lilith) was made at the same time as Adam, but when Adam was all "Do what I say woman!" she was all "Nah, fuck that and fuck you", then banged an angel and bounced to go do her own shit
The second one was made as a replacement in front of Adam, but he was freaked out by the body horror of watching intestines and shit get assembled.

I have to wonder what would happen if Boseman mentioned his condition to the higher-ups.
Like, this wasn't out of nowhere. He was diagnosed in 2016, the same year he first appeared in Captain America Civil War. Granted, filming was done in 2015, before the diagnosis, but he had a movie lined up in 2018 and roles to play in the Avengers duology.
Though I have to wonder if they didn't expect Black Panther to blow up the way it did.
Still, Boseman knew he was on limited time, and should have mentioned this. Frankly, the fact future movies won't have T'Challa just feels wrong.

I don't even get the connection between the two images. There's a water hose and a bunch of characters dodge it?

Quote
Quote
I'm confused because to me this just looks like Mario using his Fludd attack and I really don't see any similarities between the image you posted and the pic Sakurai did beyond that
It's the fact that he's using the attack on Rodin, the only Black character who can participate in-game (albeit as an Assist Trophy).

"More representation!"

"OMG SOMEONE IS SHOOTING WATER AT A BLACK CHARACTER DON'T YOU KNOW THAT'S RACIST???"

The picture alone would feel like a stretch of an argument, but Sakurai's past makes this blatant.

I really don't think it's a specific reference to that event, but it's pretty tiresome that Sakurai keeps making mistakes that come off as insensitive, intentional or not. Someone at Nintendo needs to really let him know about this and those certain problematic Spirit battles if they haven't already.

Their attitude is that anyone who sells anything in America must have encyclopedic knowledge of US history from the outset, especially history of a sensitive nature, or they are secret racists. Not even domestic US companies get treated so strictly. But if a 50+ year old Japanese man who never lived or worked in the US for all his life posts a picture that schizos on a race bend could twist themselves into interpreting it as racist then it must mean the guy has hostile intent against black people.

It is outright crazy, it damages the movement in calling out real racism, and it makes ResetERA community look crazy and unreasonable to any outside observer.

are you kidding me ARE YOU ACTUALLY KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW

the developers of Horizon Forbidden West are using THIS imagery to promote their game??

the poses, the framing, everything about this mirrors that famous photo from my home country of Sudan

that photo from one of the worst massacres in our history, when Cornelius Withers knelt on top of Abed Nkimbo, a photo taken moments before slaying him, his last victim on that bloody day

everyone is familiar with this, right?  I'm not going crazy here?

honestly I was ready to chalk this up to a simple mistake and I would've accepted a recognition of the error and an apology, but after all the Sudanphobia in the first game this really constitutes a pattern by now

this is intentional, and it's unacceptable

Ignorance isn’t an excuse for racism, be good if folk weren’t so desperate to jump to that as some sort of defence in this thread. Or is simply cause Sakuria is a developer of a popular game? 🤔🤔🤔

agree with this completely, I'm so glad there isn't a black playable character in Smash because can you imagine?

everybody picking Mario vs. Doc Brown, just so they can constantly hose him down?

disingenuously downplaying and gaslighting, "oh haha I just like playing as Mario, I didn't know I was referencing genocide, me so innocent"  :-[

ffffuck that forever

if they ever add black people to Smash, block Mario from being able to participate in the same battles (or Link because he can bomb them, and also Donkey Kong and Diddy for obvious reasons)

It's not even about having the perspective of African Americans or being knowledgeable about the Birmingham Campaign.   It's a picture that has nothing to do, whatsoever, with the Birmingham Campaign...and it isn't even remotely possible that the Smash Bros devs made it in allusion to those water cannons that devastated blacks during their fight for civil rights.   This is fucking insanity.

Thank you for your patience" is their new (last few months) boilerplate response when they know in their heart of hearts a thread is utterly ridiculous but for the sake of appearances they can't say so openly

Well that depends on what kind of response it is. If I don't think it's reasonable to be this american-centric then I will have to point that out. Just a reminder that black people do exist outside of the US too who will likely have never heard about this kind of association.   

NO EVERY SINGLE BLACK PERSON IN THE WORLD HAS THE SAME WORLDVIEW AS THE AFRICANAMERICANS. IF THEY NOT THEY ARE RACE TRAITORS.


It's not even about having the perspective of African Americans or being knowledgeable about the Birmingham Campaign.   It's a picture that has nothing to do, whatsoever, with the Birmingham Campaign...and it isn't even remotely possible that the Smash Bros devs made it in allusion to those water cannons that devastated blacks during their fight for civil rights.   This is fucking insanity.

They really lost the plot. How can anyone look at that OP and not think this is trolling. This has nothing to do with fighting racism, it's just seeing what you want to see.

Thing is, even if you really believe that the OP is a troll, you either shut up for fear of getting banned or you gaslight yourself into believing the troll job to keep up appearances. Because the last thing you want on ERA is to be accused of being "insensitive" or being accused of being a secret alt-right Nazi that infiltrated the community from within. Look at all the people in that thread falling over themselves saying how much they believe the OP and that they "always knew" Sakurai was a racist. I don't believe for a second even half of those that say they support the OP's interpretation of that screenshot believe it themselves.

Talk to these same people on the various ERA Discord off-shoots, and I bet you the attitude towards that OP and thread will be completely different. They are probably laughing about that thread and the OP and the people going along with it right now.

In all honesty, Sakurai probably knows even LESS than the average Japanese person about race relations globally.  The guy plays video games and works on Smash, and that's been his schedule for over a decade.  He doesn't watch the news, he doesn't hang out with friends, he sees his wife every once in a while, he barely eats and sleeps.  Even that racist Kirby thing was probably him going "hey, I like this cool design from Dragon Ball/Dragon Quest, I'm going to put my own spin on it!"  Is there a possibility he's actually some secret racist?  Yeah I guess, but it would be pretty incredible in its own right considering the guy's schedule.

No need to bet.  It's literally happening right now in at least 5 discords.

the best thing is the dozens of posts referencing "all the stuff he did before" as if it is just known and dominates the public consciousness

are they referring to Dee Jay as Diddy, was Sakurai personally responsible for that? or did he tweet something insensitive during the George Floyd protests? fuck you, you should already know! we all do!

Even though the rest of the comments were crazy, Cindi was right about apple and Eve. Just our luck that the first woman to ever live, also the stupidest bitch in all of history.

:no1curr but in Bible: Directors Cut she was actually the third woman alive :snob

The first one (Lilith) was made at the same time as Adam, but when Adam was all "Do what I say woman!" she was all "Nah, fuck that and fuck you", then banged an angel and bounced to go do her own shit
The second one was made as a replacement in front of Adam, but he was freaked out by the body horror of watching intestines and shit get assembled.

So god waited until lil bitch adam was asleep before he stole a rib and third times the charmed it with eve

THE BIBLE HAS SOME CRAZY ASS SHIT IN IT Y'ALL
Why do you know this?



Nah, on second thought, I don't care. You just keep at least 20 yards away from small children, ok?

I have to wonder what would happen if Boseman mentioned his condition to the higher-ups.
Like, this wasn't out of nowhere. He was diagnosed in 2016, the same year he first appeared in Captain America Civil War. Granted, filming was done in 2015, before the diagnosis, but he had a movie lined up in 2018 and roles to play in the Avengers duology.
Though I have to wonder if they didn't expect Black Panther to blow up the way it did.
Still, Boseman knew he was on limited time, and should have mentioned this. Frankly, the fact future movies won't have T'Challa just feels wrong.

:confused
They should just replace him with another actor. It's not like you white people can tell the difference between us black folk anyway.

That's a better apology than I was expecting.

But she needs to STAY gone.

"That's actually a thoughtful apology but also fuck her forever until the end of times!"

I'm also not entirely sure what she's actually being accused of. Similar to the Gone Home guy I wonder if simply being a shitty boss is becoming a new cancel reason
I repeat my thoughts on this matter because they're relevant.

Never acknowledge attempts to cancel you, never apologise, never even enter the conversation. Send a legal letter asking for receipts and threatening to sue their arse and leave it at that.

The man was making calm, level-headed arguments that expecting a 50+ year-old Japanese man that never lived or worked in the US to know deeply enough about an obscure US civil right event that happened before he was even born to insert it as some allegory in a Smash screenshot on Twitter is a stretch. But that didn't matter. He go clipped for "pedantry" (i.e they couldn't refute what he's saying but need to ban hm anyway). He was getting in the way of a good old outrage mob, so he needed to be "punished."

This is why ERA members that know better either ignore those threads or gaslight themselves into going along with the mob to keep up appearances. ERA mods make it clear that the dumbest and loudest opinion in a discussion is the only one allowed, and if you think different, then fuck you you secret alt-right/Nazi/chud/self-hating Uncle Tom *banned!*

If they actually admitted to murdering a missing person and told me where the body was, I'd likely give them a few days head start before telling the family. After that, it's up to the police to apprehend them, I want no part in it nor would I answer my child's calls after that.

The reality is, that Sakurai - being a middle-aged upper-class dude whose shown no real vocal anti-racist beliefs, works in a conservative company, and has a bit of history including racially insensitive content in games he's directed - is probably a little bit racist, out of ignorance at bare minimum, and possibly out of active or passive/internalized prejudices. He's not the first in the industry and it's doubtful he'll be the last. How comfortable you are with that is going to vary.

I mean, it's the same way with portrayal of female characters - he's talked shit about CERO being too strict more than once. He's a good game director, with a very old-school mentality, and with that comes some hard to defend choices when it comes to the portrayal of marginalized groups.

I just want to point out that BossAttack's position was not merely that he'd never turn in his son for a crime, instead it was that he'd ensure that his son could get ahead of authorities for a few days first*, and no crime, not even rape or murder would create an exception to this.

*By again, not reporting to the police, but instead notifying the family of the person murdered requiring them to contact the authorities.

Also, despite his claims I'm not sure this would fit into an exception to report a crime that has broad reading for parents. It's one thing to not report a crime, it's another thing altogether to aid and abet in another additional crime.

BossAttack said he would do the latter, even if his son told him where the body was buried.

Defensive scratches compared to offensive scratches aren't anywhere near as controversial (or blatantly horseshit) as bitemark analysis so assuming he still has the scratches when they catch him they'd be able to easily tell which ones he got from her refusing to be an accessory or pet and which ones he got while (allegedly) killing her.

You know what's really fucked up.  Even if they can pin the murder on him they still will grant him an indictment, advisement, arraignment, preliminary hearing in district court, pretrial conference, motions, disposition hearing, jury trial, and sentencing.  And after all that he's allowed to have post-trial motions or appeals!

It must be nice to be white.  Getting all those constitutional rights like Dylan Roof or the Boston Bombers.

You know what's really fucked up.  Even if they can pin the murder on him they still will grant him an indictment, advisement, arraignment, preliminary hearing in district court, pretrial conference, motions, disposition hearing, jury trial, and sentencing.  And after all that he's allowed to have post-trial motions or appeals!

It must be nice to be white.  Getting all those constitutional rights like Dylan Roof or the Boston Bombers.
He's also entitled to the presumption of innocence!! Imagine that?

Lol. How many unsolved gang murders involving black Florida rappers are there each year?

When these gangbangers were rapping about specific murdered individuals and even using photos of the victims on their album covers, Reset was defending it as "art" and "storytelling".

"Just because the story isn't real doesn't mean it can't be important," she said. "There's a difference between lying in a song and writing a story. There are tons of songs where people are just lying. There's a lot of that in rap right now, from people that I know who rap. It's like, 'I got my AK-47, and I'm fuckin',' and I'm like, what? You don't have a gun. 'And all my bitches…' I'm like, which bitches? That's posturing, and that's not what I'm doing."
I mean, its like, talk about stereotypes (and the fact that while yeah lots of artists...across the board...lie in their songs (really poetic license TBH) looking at hip-hop's unfortunately long list of deaths kind of hard to say it's posturing. But yes, as a white woman from upper class parents we needed her take on realness and how some rappers are just throwing out cliche's

"I mean, yeah, it's true but you're at allowed to say it, but also there are legit thugs posing as musicians who get killed which we will also get mad about if people bring that up as glamorising violence"

Media constantly puts in work to white-wash largely white and right-wing things
On Era the idea that this is a white-person phenomenon only is vastly overstated as the data does not really support that view.

Thanks for posting this; never saw it before. Seeing that American Indians, one of the most abused racial groups in America, seem to be the worst in terms of hesitancy makes me feel very averse to the idea of condemning them for it. White Qanon people, sure, mock them and dance on their grave, I'm not going to blame anyone else there.

You will never be a real woman. You have no womb, you have no ovaries, you have no eggs. You are a homosexual man twisted by drugs and surgery into a crude mockery of nature's perfection.

All the "validation" you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your parents are disgusted and ashamed of you, your "friends" laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.

Men are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed men to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even cheeseburgers who "pass" look uncanny and unnatural to a man. Your bone structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk guy home with you, he'll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your diseased, infected axe wound.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it's going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it'll be too much to bear - you'll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They'll bury you with a headstone marked with your birth name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a man is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably male.

Nobody gives a shit about kidnappings, missing people, or murders since the mid 90's.  In a large city you would be lucky to get a two paragraph blurb deep in the metro section.  If a cousin of the Kardashian Klan went missing you would see the same fuss.

Sorry for the language in the thread title, but I'm peeved. In fact, I'm downright vexed.

You see, my four-year-old son got this big-ass snake toy from Disney World last week, and he's been so obsessed with it that I thought it'd be a good idea to show him a video of Snake Pass. Naturally, he was mesmerized by what he saw, and being the gamer father that I am I promised him that we'd buy it and play it on PS5 when we got back from Orlando. Well, now we're back and he's jonesing to play some Snake Pass.

Well guess fucking what... it's just gone from PSN. Poof, nothing. See ya later.


You go to this store page link and you're greeted with a "this shit ain't here" message.

Well that's just fuckin' lovely, isn't it? And there's no physical version of Snake Pass for PS4, so that's out the goddamn window as well. I simply can't buy this game in any form for a PlayStation platform and play it with my son. And other than one forum post from the Old Site I've seen zero mention of this anywhere. Sumo Digital's Twitter page has said nothing, and I've seen nothing of the sort on any gaming sites anywhere.

I just want to play Snake Pass at 60fps on my PS5 with my son who loves snakes! Why can't I do that? Now I'm sitting here watching the tears well up in my son's eyes (and my own), struggling to find the words to explain to my boy why his dad's a big ol' failure who can't even provide a night of snake-based platforming action. This is some bullshit.

You will never be a real woman. You have no womb, you have no ovaries, you have no eggs. You are a homosexual man twisted by drugs and surgery into a crude mockery of nature's perfection.

All the "validation" you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your parents are disgusted and ashamed of you, your "friends" laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.

Men are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed men to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even cheeseburgers who "pass" look uncanny and unnatural to a man. Your bone structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk guy home with you, he'll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your diseased, infected axe wound.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it's going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it'll be too much to bear - you'll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They'll bury you with a headstone marked with your birth name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a man is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably male.

This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.


Guys, I'm prepared to admit I was wrong - those Cyberpunk 2077 patch notes are pretty transphobic

An actual adult responsible for raising a kid posted this -

Quote
Sorry for the language in the thread title, but I'm peeved. In fact, I'm downright vexed.

You see, my four-year-old son got this big-ass snake toy from Disney World last week, and he's been so obsessed with it that I thought it'd be a good idea to show him a video of Snake Pass. Naturally, he was mesmerized by what he saw, and being the gamer father that I am I promised him that we'd buy it and play it on PS5 when we got back from Orlando. Well, now we're back and he's jonesing to play some Snake Pass.

Well guess fucking what... it's just gone from PSN. Poof, nothing. See ya later.


You go to this store page link and you're greeted with a "this shit ain't here" message.

Well that's just fuckin' lovely, isn't it? And there's no physical version of Snake Pass for PS4, so that's out the goddamn window as well. I simply can't buy this game in any form for a PlayStation platform and play it with my son. And other than one forum post from the Old Site I've seen zero mention of this anywhere. Sumo Digital's Twitter page has said nothing, and I've seen nothing of the sort on any gaming sites anywhere.

I just want to play Snake Pass at 60fps on my PS5 with my son who loves snakes! Why can't I do that? Now I'm sitting here watching the tears well up in my son's eyes (and my own), struggling to find the words to explain to my boy why his dad's a big ol' failure who can't even provide a night of snake-based platforming action. This is some bullshit.

So overnight there was Community Drama in the weekly Media Create sales thread. I've only ever really popped in there to check numbers and dip out, so I have zero opinion on the apparent festering issues with hot-take Sony Ponys drive-bying the thread or the Nintendo faithful constantly port-begging in there, or whatever else the overall problem is.


The latest kerfuffle, unsurprisingly, seems to stem from the moderation team having paper-thin skin. cvxfreak and Chris1964 get into it over the meaning of some article about some talk a guy did.
https://www.resetera.com/threads/media-create-sales-week-36-2021-sep-06-sep-12-read-staff-post.487222/post-73650931
Quote from: cvxfreak
The aggressive responses in here are clearly from people who don't actually read Japanese, only filtering the info through Google Translate for a surface level understanding, and then making assumptions about what the overarching point of the talk is, culminating in the perpetuation of false information. It needs to stop.

Things to keep in mind:
The Famitsu article is a SUMMARY of Matsuyama's talk
Matsuyama's talk itself is a SUMMARY of his 128-page book about the subject of game development (which, as you might imagine, is a lot more nuanced than a Famitsu summary)
If you want to criticize Matsuyama's findings, read the book first. Good luck with that if you don't know Japanese.
The Famitsu summary literally quotes Matsuyama as saying "Of course, it depends on the product." In Japanese, people will automatically infer that to mean there will be variance in the actual data, but the underlying point of Matsuyama's talk about how parts of the industry subsidize others is the key takeaway (of course, Google Translate won't tell you that, nor will analyzing Japanese through your native language or English)
Good grief, people.

Quote from: Chris1964
Matsuyama's seminar is low level analysis with this 100k barrier and if he wanted to say "it depends on the game" maybe he shouldn't post all these slides generalising everything. Even the person who attended the seminar made the same observations and I'm sure he knew Japanese.

When I present a summary of a project at my work I don't expect those who listen to know the entire background of it because I said something but that's not what I wanted to say and I meant something else.


They go back and forth for a while and it ends around here, with nobody being actioned:
Quote from: Chris1964
Since this discussion won't end, for last time I say that I don't take back a word, except the ResetEra troll part, from what I said for Matsuyama presentation and the supposed false information I provided unless I want to forget everything I know for statistical and market analysis.

Ignorance of Japanese reality, google translation, surface analysis, having to be there or reading the book so that I can see the full picture have nothing to do with my opinion, everyone is judged for what he says and I can also judge what I read.

But then discussion about moderation continues, with Chris being fairly critical:
Quote
From the moment the increase of drive by and troll posts is allowed from moderation don't be surprised if you see everywhere passive aggressive posts even where there aren't. We have more accusations for passive aggressive posts in this thread than how many actually there are and the famous meme for "bad Media Create threads and posters" gets free pass anymore even in here.

Quote
A transparent alt account was recently permanently banned after years of hot takes and pollution in these threads and not because he was finally discovered but because of multiple bans for the same reason. So yes, don't expect moderators to solve everything or that this place is closely and carefully watched.

Which, again, unactioned, until he mocks the earlier conversation:
Quote from: Chris1964
Quote from: Anihawk
i dunno. matsuyama dropping truth bombs about the industry as a whole makes about as much sense as some dude from kemco.
I don't think you are qualified enough to judge Matsuyama.
Quote from: Chris1964

No, you must learn Japanese fluently and read his book.

Which earns Chris a one-day ban for the "I don't think you are qualified enough" post:
Quote
User Banned (1 Day): Trolling over multiple posts

The thread moves on, goes back to sales things, and then later that day Chris is banned for the "I don't think you are qualified" joke. The thread notices, gets mad, and cvxfreak drops the new mod guidelines for the thread:
Quote from: cvxfreak
OFFICIAL STAFF COMMUNICATION
Lately, there has been an uptick of reported posts and disciplinary action related to the weekly Media Create threads. Many posters have complained of no longer having a voice in these threads because certain posters, including thread regulars, have replied in a hostile or condescending manner. This needs to stop. Please keep the following advice in mind when participating in these threads, regardless of how long you've been part of this community. Failure to do so could result in action being taken.
Sales threads should always be about that — the sales data itself. They should not be used as a guise for port begging, console/platform wars or other forms of trolling that wouldn't be allowed elsewhere on the forum.
In general, sales threads should focus on business and economic elements, i.e. comparing past and present data, observing trends, or making educated guesses.
While these threads do focus on Japan, it is not against the rules to discuss worldwide sales trends in the context of Japanese sales. It is OK to compare data from Japan to other countries, but like all posts, it needs to be done in good faith.
Do not be snarky, passive aggressive, condescending or otherwise disrespectful towards other users that you don't agree with. Not everyone has the same knowledge of sales and business, and if you feel someone is incorrect in their interpretation of data, constructively correct them (in as much detail as possible) instead of mocking them. Make yourself useful, not disruptive.
Sales data should never be weaponized or used to justify racist rhetoric, such as generalizing, mocking or trivializing the interests of another country, such as Japan or China.
Accusations that companies or creators/developers are showing favoritism for or bias against certain companies (i.e. Nagoshi, Harada, Nihon Falcom, etc. for Sony/against Nintendo) are not allowed unless there is evidence supporting such accusations.
Drive-bys and other inappropriate commentary are not allowed. (i.e. no-substance single word/sentences responses like "bomba").
If you're posting any kind of data, please post a link or source for transparency going forward. This not only includes sales data, but also information gleaned from retail blogs or Twitter accounts.
If you're posting about information that originally appeared in a non-English language such as Japanese (or a language you don't necessarily understand), please be confident as to the accuracy of the translation. If you're not confident, say so and reach out to the community to get an accurate reading.
If you see a post that goes against the above guidelines, please report it for review. If you have any questions, please DM a mod such as myself. Thank you.

Regulars are unhappy, people who I'm guessing fall into the drive-by category celebrate the toppling of the Media Create elite, a couple of mod whining warnings are tossed out.

Then the bans start:

I understand the fears some may have here over what has happened in other threads, but I hope we can all take a collective deep breath and let things play out for a bit. cvxfreak has already implied they're willing to flexible on certain rules and I think we should take that at face value. I don't think it's fair to be fatalistic and assume the worst when it hasn't even been a day yet (which by that point Chris will hopefully be back). I do think things were festering for too long and it eventually had to burst. I just don't think we should have unfounded fears until we see drastic shifts happen in moderation.

And that this all was started because a mod seemingly is affiliated with a developer (in whatever form) took grievance to people criticizing said developer by talking down to posters and mocking them for not understanding the language or having to read a book (which the mod seemingly hasn't read either).

The provided translation did almost nothing to change the perception of a poor take from the developer, but the mod took the whole situation to double down and went full scorch earth on the community.

My best guess on this one is the poster rethought the post, tried to remove it, and it was reinstated to explain their ban?
Quote from: Kanann

User banned (duration pending admin review): Mod whining, trolling and hostility over multiple posts. Numerous previous infractions for trolling

But the direction of moderation to please the discord planet is hilarious instead of prioritize ERA community itself.

And can I insult CVX here? you lurking for like 200 years here since GAF and before Jesus walk on water but still pull this out?
Even Nibel and Zhuge was better than that without not making dad/mom jokes.


ps. Ishaan did nothing wrong tho, but he getting use, I guess.

User banned (1 week): Mod whining, using an extremely inappropriate comparison invoking minority groups
Quote from: Jawbreaker
Let's see how the threads are moderated going forward. They weren't really moderated at all, trolls or regulars, in the past. If bad faith posters (actual bad faith posters, not people who are curious about the market but aren't as knowledgeable) continue to go unactioned, I'm sure cvxfreak will take a look at it.

The rules are flexible/amenable if they don't work out for the better or cause other issues.
These types of sweeping guidelines have worked out so well in the past and will definitely fix things.

*looks at PC Era, AsiaEra and Trans Era*

I just don’t have any faith in that.
Quote from: fiendcode

User banned (duration tbd by admins): Mod-whining, inappropriate comparisons, long history of platform warring
XboxEra too.

The thread is then locked by Exactly Who You'd Guess Based On The Recent Ban Messages:
Quote from: Nepenthe

Quote from: Nepenthe
Thread unlocked.

Staff are open to criticism regarding the rules we set in place, especially when it is taken to the appropriate channels. However, that criticism should never jump the line into attacking staff or conspiratorial accusations of bias.

It also shouldn't jump the line into equating the issues of minority communities with video game sales data.

Behave yourselves. Any posts violating any rules here or in cvx's post will be actioned accordingly.

There are a couple of posts objecting to painting "Era mods interacting with communities has not traditionally gone well for the communities" as equating minority issues with game sales, the inhabitants are still unhappy with the changes, and a couple of pages later:
Quote from: Snormy
This thread is locked while we review reports. It may be some time before it reopens if we choose to reopen it.

I'm just going to default assume everyone in the thread, regulars and drive-by posters, kind of suck; but somehow the mods once again manage to wrestle biggest asshole away from the community with their paper-thin skin. Couple of people have taken it to the Constructive thread to, I'm sure, end up either ignored or banned.

My best guess on this one is the poster rethought the post, tried to remove it, and it was reinstated to explain their ban?

User banned (duration pending admin review): Mod whining, trolling and hostility over multiple posts. Numerous previous infractions for trolling
Thread need moderation.

But the direction of moderation to please the discord planet is hilarious instead of prioritize ERA community itself.

And can I insult CVX here? you lurking for like 200 years here since GAF and before Jesus walk on water but still pull this out?
Even Nibel and Zhuge was better than that without not making dad/mom jokes.

User banned (1 week): Mod whining, using an extremely inappropriate comparison invoking minority groups
Quote from: Jawbreaker
Let's see how the threads are moderated going forward. They weren't really moderated at all, trolls or regulars, in the past. If bad faith posters (actual bad faith posters, not people who are curious about the market but aren't as knowledgeable) continue to go unactioned, I'm sure cvxfreak will take a look at it.

The rules are flexible/amenable if they don't work out for the better or cause other issues.
These types of sweeping guidelines have worked out so well in the past and will definitely fix things.

*looks at PC Era, AsiaEra and Trans Era*

I just don’t have any faith in that.

Thread unlocked.

Staff are open to criticism regarding the rules we set in place, especially when it is taken to the appropriate channels. However, that criticism should never jump the line into attacking staff or conspiratorial accusations of bias.

It also shouldn't jump the line into equating the issues of minority communities with video game sales data.

Behave yourselves. Any posts violating any rules here or in cvx's post will be actioned accordingly.

There are a couple of posts objecting to painting "Era mods interacting with communities has not traditionally gone well for the communities" as equating minority issues with game sales, the inhabitants are still unhappy with the changes, and a couple of pages later:
Quote from: Snormy
This thread is locked while we review reports. It may be some time before it reopens if we choose to reopen it.

I'm just going to default assume everyone in the thread, regulars and drive-by posters, kind of suck; but somehow the mods once again manage to wrestle biggest asshole away from the community with their paper-thin skin. Couple of people have taken it to the Constructive thread to, I'm sure, end up either ignored or banned.

The fact that admins on a videogame forum considers a group of videogamers forming a community about a specific videogame niche to be irrelevant and have no say in how that community is treated on that videogame forum compared to people who don't give a fuck about videogames and / or have zero overlapping interests but just happen to all tick the same box on a census form is :delicious

Also let's be real; there are people in the "sales community" that have nearly unbroken streaks of over a decade long of looking up numbers from a japanese website every week and compiling it into spreadsheets for their own use, and can literally cite you overall trends of any historical date of any historical platform pretty much from memory.

that's not exactly neurotypical

Yes, it's this tread - and every other Activision Blizzard thread.

If hype threads about this company are allowed, every one of them should have a disclaimer about what happened.

The original is in my top 5 games and I was waiting for a return to form from Diablo for a long time. As it is, I can't give them any money though - the best I can do against these practices is vote with my money, so that's what I'm doing.

Also B-dubs posted, they're still somehow reviewing reports:
Quote from: B-Dubs
It seems a lot of people have been asking about the one day ban for Chris1964, which was escalated normally off of a warning from the day before. This is routine stuff that happens in every long running thread. It's a slap on the wrist to draw a member's attention to a concern. Nothing that transpired in this thread warranted some of the extreme reactions that we've seen.

The staff post has been in the works since the recent Tales drama and it wasn't targeted at any individual or even any group of individuals. It's intended only to make sure that the thread isn't putting off decent members who are interested in sales and are not trolls. That's really it. Just avoid sniping, check your sources, pretty standard stuff. Again, not targeted at any individuals.

It seems like the main problem here is that somehow people got the idea that we're "taking sides" and/or providing cover for trolls to come into the thread and stir up trouble. That is absolutely not the case. There should be room for polite and good faith disagreement, but if we suspect your intent is to cause a disturbance, throw bait, lay traps, or anything of that nature, we're going to take a good look at you first. We will have very little patience for anyone trying to exploit the staff post for petty reasons.

The thread will be unlocked after we finish reviewing reports.

can you imagine the amount of goodwill there would be if literally all that happened was one mod stopped by to say "you know what, we fucked up, we're not all that familiar with the tone and regulars of this thread and we were a little more heavy-handed than we should've been, chris is now unbanned, have a nice day"

even if they didn't really mean it and they were muttering angrily under their breath the whole time, just doing that would possibly avert a revolt, more discord splintering, destruction of yet another community on era etc

can you imagine the amount of goodwill there would be if literally all that happened was one mod stopped by to say "you know what, we fucked up, we're not all that familiar with the tone and regulars of this thread and we were a little more heavy-handed than we should've been, chris is now unbanned, have a nice day"

even if they didn't really mean it and they were muttering angrily under their breath the whole time, just doing that would possibly avert a revolt, more discord splintering, destruction of yet another community on era etc


but oh wait that takes actual leadership, humility, listening for once, the ability to be contrite without your massive fucking ego getting in the way  :doge
I don't understand why people like Chris kept posting on ResetEra in the first place.
Arguably bringing in a lot of clicks and traffic.

How can you look at the culling of the different sub communities and think: "Yup, I'm the special one that won't be cancelled :smug"

If anyone but slayven posted this I would think it was a pathetic attempt to distance themselves from the word "Woke," like everyone did with "yaas queen," "yikes!" "big oof,"  "sus," "I see you," etc.

But slayven is so dumb it's hard to imagine him having an agenda or plan in anything at all.  Like a squirrel chewing into an electric line.  It's not like they were trying to wreck your shit.

Just a friendly reminder that it may not feel like it sometimes here, but there are vtubers outside of the big groups. Plenty of those aren't into lolicons or are especially horny either.

As with all media I feel like its never black and white. I still play and enjoy games/music/tv/anime that have documented problems from creators to content to other stuff. I dont defend the bad shit though. Once you start defending the bad stuff... maybe its time to rethink things.

Yeah, I don’t defend Resetera.

Maybe Vtubers should be like western streamers and being genuine sex pests that bring IRL drama in everything they do than introverts with anime avatars.

People in discord are kind of anticipating the Vtuber thread getting Somethingawful'd at some point (they shut down all Vtuber discussion over Gura and Shion flirting with each other).

Kind of silly thing to do a this point. The thread has avoided being a cesspool of RE worst instincts for the most part and they avoid controversial shit that RE frowns about also for the most part. Feels shitty they are starting to shit and shun on Vtubers that they find “problematic” when the method of “ignore and don’t make a fuzz” seems to do wonders. Imagine if they do that for the rest of the forum rather than go apeshit for any perceived slight.

But everything needs to be a purity test. Hell, someone there was bitching that the whole gimmick of Kronii was being “mean” like it was equivalent of Matsuri and Marine pervert antics.

If the Japan sales discussion clowns had any dignity they would move their community to another platform asap.

However, I predict a grovelling apology from those that got banned with a commitment to "be better" next time a mod comes in throwing their weight around and accusing others of being ignorant.

I fucking hate the performative thread titles--slapping "RIP Gabby Patito" in the title of your thread for popcorning a murder investigation actually isn't a particularly thoughtful or compassionate touch, stop fucking making me think the phrase "virtue signaling."

Unrelated, but at this point the constructive criticism thread is basically just space for bootlickers to show how shiny they can get boots:

Quote from: Dmax3901
I gotta be honest I read the sales thread and it just seemed like a bunch of toxic children getting mad they couldn't continue to be toxic children. The ban that kicked it all off was for a single day, lol. Also, the comparisons to Asian era and trans era were laughable, it's a fucking sales data thread.

Quote from: WestEgg
The issue is that tempers boiled over because Media Create threads are subject to constant drive by troll posts and thinly veiled console wars that are rarely if ever moderated, but last night only Chris himself was initially banned, despite it having been obvious he was being baited by anyone even remotely familiar with the usual thread dynamics. Chris is probably the hardest working member on this site, and aside from doing the weekly media create threads, he also compiles the annual white paper reports with thousands of games worth of data, and it's probably not too much of a stretch to say that his choice to settle here after the collapse of gaf is what legitimized era as its successor.

Of course he isn't above the rules like anyone else on the site, but he's become a massive target for console war harassment, and it's hard to blame him for clapping back at times.  A big issue, a recurring one in other issues, is there was no real attempt by the moderation at de-escalation prior to the ban, no "Hey guys, stay on topic" and stuff like that which has usually come in the past when sales threads get heated.  Instead, just mass bans of anyone even critical of the moderation.  A staff post after the damage has been done is a case of hindsight, not prevention.

Yes, sales data isn't as important as other bigger issues with this site and with the world at large.  But for many people, the sales community is the entire point of this forum and where they choose to spend their time, so it's very important to them specifically. Of course they are going to flip out when it seems to be under attack.

Quote from: Dmax3901
The ban might've been misguided, but again, it wasn't a permanent ban or even a long one. The mods came in with guidelines moving forward which suggests that, regardless of how things were before, there are now more strict rules that will need to be followed.

The mass bans you mention were largely people being openly hostile towards the mods, continuing to post things directly in violation of the rules that had just been laid out and making inappropriate comparisons to the situations with minority groups on Era. I even saw someone insinuate a mod was somehow tied to an industry executive and thats why people were being banned, lol.

"Sure, the ban might have been misguided, but the real issue is people didn't shut up enough and take it. Someone went so far as to insinuate that the mod who was flexing being involved in JP development might have some kind of ties to a JP developer!"

Holy crap, I didn’t realize Bruno was permabanned. For an off-site comment? Is that even following the rules? That’s a huge loss.

So... they took the time of searching for Bruno's Twitter account and check if he said something there? ok...

Saw the post for the ban. And noticed that Bruno only had 37 followers. Does staff just search for reported users on Twitter to see whether they said something bad about moderation?

Owh yeah... keep mod duties to things done on this site, instead of off the site. Thank you very much.
And for the slightest chance to get them back. A true hearthfelt apology needs to be made, and i would even say some mods needs to get sacked and i wouldnt blame them. I would stay away as well

Just because I'm willing to play along with this new situation doesn't excuse the fact that none of this was handled right. Absolutely none of it, regardless of what intentions staff had, or what their endgame for better discussion is, absolutely none of that excuses how this was proceeded.

I have been absolutely livid the past 24 hours on how any of this went down, about how any of this required the force that was shown. And I won't forget it. Just because you didn't mean for this to happen, or mean for it to look like it happened because of certain reasons does not take away that it still happened. I'd say I would hope staff will do better with this community from this point forward, but I don't have much to go with.

See you next thread.

Usually off site drama is is being frowned up on and shouldnt be brought up in here ?
Ive seen people criticize mods or ERA on other sites/twitter before, this is the first time ive seen someone getting straight up permabanned for it. Especially since there was no warning or the user never had any bans or issues on ERA before that. It just comes out of left field for some of us.

Is it part of the ERA rules that off site comments will get you banned ? I never witnessed it so its new to me.

The biggest threat of fascism comes from the cops. If Trump wasn't so pants on head stupid he could have pulled off a coup using the local cops on the streets and daring the state governors to respond. Once the cops stop responding to local civilian control (and already civilian leaders are struggling to keep the cops under control) and center their power bases around union leadership the Republic is done. Someone is going to recognize that and they'll be a far bigger threat than Trump.

Think about a city like NYC. The NYPD has 35,000 sworn officers. NY State has 5,000 sworn troopers. There's only 21,000 in the New York National Guard. Even in smaller cities like Boston and Philly, the local PD outnumbers the state troopers, forcing a showdown between the governor with the national guard and the cops. That's if Trump didn't try to federalize the national guard and some units defecting to him.

As much as local chiefs of police will disagree, there's very little professionalism in law enforcement in the United States until you start getting to the federal level. Local cops may as well be local warlords in any sort of fascist uprising. It will be long and bloody with the fascists operating under the color of law to boot. We should thank our lucky stars that Trump didn't figure out the power he had in his cop union buddies willing to go all the way with him so long as they could continue to operate with impunity.

I agree with you. And honestly, this is not just happening here on Resetera - this is more and more common in many other life circumstances. The respectful confrontation of diverse, diverging opinions does seem to lead more and more to a fight and disrespect of the person in question rather than then challenging the idea. This is precisely why groups with diverging opinions do not talk to each other anymore.

The good news is that within corporations, conflict is a known problem. And corporations came up with PPI (Practical Process Improvement) rules to manage it. Part of the PPI is Ground Rules for meetings. I propose to adapt this set of Groud Rules to suit these forums. I leave it to the Mods to decide exactly which rules to take and which not, and whether to add new ones. These can be found here (http://www.simpleimprovement.co.uk/PPI%208020%20Introduction.pdf).

Some well-suited rules could be:

1) Participate and ask questions - everyone should be allowed to do so.
2) Do not dominate - allow all people to participate, do not exclude/ignore people.
3) Attack the problem, not the person - this is crucial for mutual respect and productive conversations.
4) 3 Knock Rule - if the thread is going off track or getting into too much detail, the mods can point this out and steer the discussion back on track. Bans should be used as a last resort, to be honest.
5) Have fun! We should still enjoy the discussion and feel allowed to politely disagree.

Just my two bits.

(https://i.imgur.com/kLbaRwp.gif)

you'll be asking for a codified list of rules, with explicit reference to which one was broken when issuing bans next!

Saw the post for the ban. And noticed that Bruno only had 37 followers. Does staff just search for reported users on Twitter to see whether they said something bad about moderation?

Anytime you think the mods couldn't be more petty they come up with something new.

Lol nothing was done regarding Insomiac games, Acti-Blizz or Ubisoft ones and you expect that something will be done for this?

Only game that got some kind of response here on Era was CP2077. And I still stand by my opinion that Era should decide if they will treat all developers/games the same or not bother at all. These random decisions serve no purpose.

can you imagine the amount of goodwill there would be if literally all that happened was one mod stopped by to say "you know what, we fucked up, we're not all that familiar with the tone and regulars of this thread and we were a little more heavy-handed than we should've been, chris is now unbanned, have a nice day"

even if they didn't really mean it and they were muttering angrily under their breath the whole time, just doing that would possibly avert a revolt, more discord splintering, destruction of yet another community on era etc


but oh wait that takes actual leadership, humility, listening for once, the ability to be contrite without your massive fucking ego getting in the way  :doge

Quote from: B-Dubs, 6 hours after bore post
Thread is open again!

After hearing from well-meaning members I wanted to clarify again that the staff post was something that's been in the works for a while and in retrospect my call to rush it out yesterday was bad timing. The fact that it came on the heels of banning the OP (even just for a day) made it look like the two things were connected like some big statement, and that was never supposed to be the case. That was just a routine ban, the shortest we can possibly do.

The guidelines aren't asking for anything unreasonable and while they will be enforced, we're not going to be hunting for excuses to ban people over them. Going forward we are going to prioritize finding additional staff who are regulars in this thread and can handle its moderation. We really believe that those of you who are willing to give the guidelines a chance will end up with a better thread in the long run.

Now in case this needs to be said again: Don't troll. Don't try to use the guidelines as cover for your trolling. Don't go looking for drama. Don't make wildly inappropriate analogies or extremely hostile posts towards members or staff.

Believe it or not the staff hates drama. This was never intended to be a big dramatic change. The only goal is a friendlier thread where more people feel welcome to participate in good faith.

The sheer audacity of it all. Not only was this employee ignored by the majority of era but the game has an OT and following spearheaded by a mod(not complaints, pls don't ban me) What bs narrative is he spewing that the forum will back the employee 100% and turn on the game?
Yeah knowing that one of the mods is super hyped about this and even changed their tag to reflect it stings for me.

But hey its their choice. If they want to be hyped along with the others then I can't stop them. I just won't play it myself.

Left leaning? Maybe to right wingers and fascists. But really, era is more Libertarian.

To go off-topic for a bit, I've been in a lot of threads since the founding, and one thing I've noticed and talk about all the time on my own Twitter is how profoundly sinophobic era has been that is no different from even outside of the forums. How anti-sex and sex negative the forums are. etc. etc. There's a large lacking in intersectionality on this forum when it comes to a lot of discussion, and it's only gotten worse because plenty have left over poor moderation and failing to prevent a lot of preventable things.

Usually off site drama is is being frowned up on and shouldnt be brought up in here ?
Ive seen people criticize mods or ERA on other sites/twitter before, this is the first time ive seen someone getting straight up permabanned for it. Especially since there was no warning or the user never had any bans or issues on ERA before that. It just comes out of left field for some of us.

Is it part of the ERA rules that off site comments will get you banned ? I never witnessed it so its new to me.
To be fair i dont know what the comment sounded like and what the issue was between bruno and the mod but it must have been severe for that result. Maybe there was a history between the two, i dont have any insight to.

Have you considered that if all these "pillars of the community" are getting banned for being toxic and hostile, and for refusing to follow rules that were brought in good faith to improve the discussion, then your community is perhaps not as great as you claim it is?

Like those rules are so clearly "just don't be an asshole" and yet everyone acted as if they'd been denied oxygen lol.

It is funny to pop into this thread and see an entire community meltdown over a one day ban that they're now admitting was justified (since the convo pivoted to other things)

Every one of these threads on Era has produced one result in common: bullying.

A dev manager calling the subject of the thread an asshole wasn't even part of the story - until this thread. Neither was targeting or profiling members on Era as company employees or boosters, just for expressing even a glimmer of interest in the game and this particular developer's work - whether they know it's his work or not, or makes a purchase or not.

So no, none of these threads should be stickied or promoted or take the place of game-focused threads, if the result is people targeting and bullying other members. And that includes setting aside the subject of the thread - who is only telling his story - to insist the conversation be only about a certain arrangement of work organization, or suggest that people cannot discuss the game, or suggest that someone's story shouldn't be acknowledged unless the "full story" comes out.

I've been on the bad side of work situations before. What helps the most moving forward from them is having the support system of other people listening, acknowledging, and looking out for future opportunities for you. Not letting a mob form to go after other people in your community. And people should still talk about the results of the work you did, even when the experience was negative - as they will come to know over time that it was you who made a difference.

He'd have been banned so hard if he had made this post during the Cyberpunk 2077 times. "OMG ARE YOU CALLING TRANS ERA BULLIES?  :maf"

Now it seems like the mods want to step back from the whole idea of banning publishers etc. but they of course do it in their dumbass passive aggressive way

I gotta be honest I read the sales thread and it just seemed like a bunch of toxic children getting mad they couldn't continue to be toxic children. The ban that kicked it all off was for a single day, lol. Also, the comparisons to Asian era and trans era were laughable, it's a fucking sales data thread.












Quote from: Dmax3901, post: 73755961, member: 4989

The ban might've been misguided, but again, it wasn't a permanent ban or even a long one. The mods came in with guidelines moving forward which suggests that, regardless of how things were before, there are now more strict rules that will need to be followed.



The mass bans you mention were largely people being openly hostile towards the mods, continuing to post things directly in violation of the rules that had just been laid out and making inappropriate comparisons to the situations with minority groups on Era. I even saw someone insinuate a mod was somehow tied to an industry executive and thats why people were being banned, lol.


Dmax being a total bitch and angling for that mod position :lol

Oh and I noticed ZeoVGM got banned for something. Probably that Marcia Lucas thread daring to criticize Rey did him in. Defending Disney at all costs!

I'm loving all the doom posting from nintendies over the potential death of media create threads

I just can't understand why they fucking care so much :lol

I will say I remember the name chris from back at neogaf i.e. https://www.neogaf.com/threads/media-create-sales-2014-cy-2013-12-30-2014-12-28.1076342/

so if a 1 day ban at era is enough to scare him away permanently, that's a little significant if the dude's being doing these threads for like 20 years

Oh I'm aware of sales-age and how they cried so hard over the death of NPD :rofl
nintex the dutch sales god brings us NPD numbers too

Every one of these threads on Era has produced one result in common: bullying.

A dev manager calling the subject of the thread an asshole wasn't even part of the story - until this thread. Neither was targeting or profiling members on Era as company employees or boosters, just for expressing even a glimmer of interest in the game and this particular developer's work - whether they know it's his work or not, or makes a purchase or not.

So no, none of these threads should be stickied or promoted or take the place of game-focused threads, if the result is people targeting and bullying other members. And that includes setting aside the subject of the thread - who is only telling his story - to insist the conversation be only about a certain arrangement of work organization, or suggest that people cannot discuss the game, or suggest that someone's story shouldn't be acknowledged unless the "full story" comes out.

I've been on the bad side of work situations before. What helps the most moving forward from them is having the support system of other people listening, acknowledging, and looking out for future opportunities for you. Not letting a mob form to go after other people in your community. And people should still talk about the results of the work you did, even when the experience was negative - as they will come to know over time that it was you who made a difference.

He'd have been banned so hard if he had made this post during the Cyberpunk 2077 times. "OMG ARE YOU CALLING TRANS ERA BULLIES?  :maf"

Now it seems like the mods want to step back from the whole idea of banning publishers etc. but they of course do it in their dumbass passive aggressive way

Would love to see how that poster’s sentiment would have been received in any of the Diablo threads, if it wouldn’t be predictable as hell.

It's not really about the length of the ban.  That Chris guy is an industry professional, and when he learned someone that probably looks like this " :nepenthe " doled him out a ban for literally nothing, he probably won't even bother coming back and waste his time.  The users there understand that and are peeved that a major contributor to their community won't bother coming back.  You might be able to wantonly temp ban 90% of the dipshit idiots that post on Era but keep coming back, but actual adults that have better things to do, and actually have value attached to their time will just bolt.

I also have to assume, at this point, that most people know having the staff take an interest in your community thread is basically the kiss of death for whatever you might have enjoyed about it. Let the community do its own thing and largely self-police for years as tension builds because none of your mod team reads it; eventually, enough people who have beef with the community will troll the thread enough times that things will get contentious and then they can spam reports, at which point the moderation team that has little or no interaction with the thread will stomp in, ban regulars for being meanies, lay down the new true guidelines of interaction to protect innocent 'decent' members. People holding a grudge will proceed to use those new rules to slowly chip away at remaining enemies, and the community ends up either migrated off-site or fractured (the whole thing feels like a retread of the PoliEra fracture a couple years ago, but I'm guessing the Media Create stuff is way more important to the site's traffic.)

So if Chris ends up not coming back, I'm not going to blame him for wanting to skip the rest of the cycle--they're determined enough to destroy whatever vibe that thread had going to OK permaing that guy for essentially mildly criticizing the staffing decisions in a low-profile Twitter thread.

Well, of course we have an update.

Quote
Black Restaurant Patrons Said NYC Hostess Called Them N-Word: Attorney

Now, at this point, after calling the Texans savages and so forth, one would think ERA would cool their heels…

  :jawalrus

Quote
Of course the hostess from NYC would be racist...not surprised /s

Everybody that was clowning on Texas in this thread I now expect you to show the same treatment for New York City.

Quote
So I am guessing they sat down and were vaxxed, the people showing up after the fact weren't all vaxxed and as a result everyone walked out but the hostess had to get one barb in and threw a slur and got mollywoppped.

Im laughing at how the Carmines manager was all selling the lie to the news too.

Quote
Yikes. MAGA people weaponizing vaccine status (which a lot of them don't comply with) to screw over POC. There is no low to these folks.

Quote
I wonder if it went down like, "Where are your vaccination records, n-words?"

cut to,

"omg I can't believe they beat me up because I asked if they were vaccinated."

I’m just wondering when this next one gets their ban for dismissing racism.

Quote
Did any other witnesses hear the slur word? Right now the allegation that a swear word was used if from the defense attorney. People are pretty quick to believe whatever story is presented to them. That goes for the hostess and the Texans.

I acknowledged I was definitely complicit in some of the behaviour I criticize in a later post after the guidelines were posted, it's no secret I had some heated discussions with him in the past. I apologized for my conduct, vowed to do better going forward and hoped everyone would make the same effort. But surely you realize Chris, while a valuable member of MCera, was also prone to displaying a bit of an attitude when engaging other folks here, surely? Again I admit I may have fanned the flames in the past and I apologize for that, but he wasn't exactly trying to deescalate in many of those discussions. It's not as one-sided as you make it sound.

Quote from: Aurc, post: 73811518, member: 20582

I want to preface this by saying I know I'm not a Media Create regular. I don't believe I've ever even previously posted in one of these sales threads, since I'm relatively uninterested in sales data. However, as it is of a direct relevance to the present situation with Chris, I feel I should at least offer up something that suggests even further that Chris's ban was unwarranted.









These posts are from the Era-affiliated "BiohazardERA" (Resident Evil) Discord server, which I've been in for awhile. The official stance from a moderator of both the server, and site (cvxfreak) is that the server is literally an extension of Era, and thus, I feel it's fair game to post anything from it that would be pertinent to the present situation:


The snarky post that Chris was banned for occurred on September 19, at 9:14 AM PDT. This was after cvxfreak had already made some bad faith posts in the BiohazardERA server, mocking the Media Create regulars and community, and acting proud for "shutting Chris up":


As can be seen, this post was made at on September 19, at 2:41 AM PDT, which... predates Chris's snarky post, obviously. How is it that cvxfreak is allowed to publicly (or privately, if you consider BiohazardERA to be a private community) make bad faith commentary against Chris and the Media Create community, but Chris is the one banned for perceived lack of decorum?

This is not the first time cvxfreak has behaved in bad faith, either, and I have further screenshots, should anyone be interested.

Additionally, I've observed him waiting for one member in particular to slip-up, so that he can give him the banhammer.









If I get banned for this post, so be it. Thank you to all the mods and admins that have tried to keep the peace, but a serious conversation must be held with, and about the mods that do not.

I’m just wondering when this next one gets their ban for dismissing racism.

Did any other witnesses hear the slur word? Right now the allegation that a swear word was used if from the defense attorney. People are pretty quick to believe whatever story is presented to them. That goes for the hostess and the Texans.

I want to preface this by saying I know I'm not a Media Create regular. I don't believe I've ever even previously posted in one of these sales threads, since I'm relatively uninterested in sales data. However, as it is of a direct relevance to the present situation with Chris, I feel I should at least offer up something that suggests even further that Chris's ban was unwarranted.

These posts are from the Era-affiliated "BiohazardERA" (Resident Evil) Discord server, which I've been in for awhile. The official stance from a moderator of both the server, and site (cvxfreak) is that the server is literally an extension of Era, and thus, I feel it's fair game to post anything from it that would be pertinent to the present situation:

(https://i.imgur.com/u6Ktppt.png)

The snarky post that Chris was banned for occurred on September 19, at 9:14 AM PDT. This was after cvxfreak had already made some bad faith posts in the BiohazardERA server, mocking the Media Create regulars and community, and acting proud for "shutting Chris up":

(https://i.imgur.com/GQRmTN6.png)
(https://i.imgur.com/niQUYBY.png)
As can be seen, this post was made at on September 19, at 2:41 AM PDT, which... predates Chris's snarky post, obviously. How is it that cvxfreak is allowed to publicly (or privately, if you consider BiohazardERA to be a private community) make bad faith commentary against Chris and the Media Create community, but Chris is the one banned for perceived lack of decorum?

(https://i.imgur.com/XppueEG.png)

This is not the first time cvxfreak has behaved in bad faith, either, and I have further screenshots, should anyone be interested. I know this is about Chris, not me, but just recently, cvx brought up one of my Era bans to use against me in an argument, since a Resident Evil poll I made here did not go as he expected. Additionally, I've observed him waiting for one member in particular to slip-up, so that he can give him the banhammer.

User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory Point of Comparison and Drive-By Thread Derail
Quote from: Samenamenick
I think for me, it's weird that this story has gotten so much traction on resetera. I realize there are a shit ton of true crime junkies everywhere, and that's the primary driver. But stuff I've read in related threads this week had me confused.

For example, ACAB is a widely accepted concept here here, yet the moment we find out the Laundries aren't cooperating, anyone agreeing with their stance of staying silent is dogpiled. How dare they do that to the poor girls parents, let the lawmen do their job!! Pro legal rights, except when we are positive we've got the bad guy. He fled, he's guilty! No press conferences by the Laundries, guilty! A good deal of (justified) pointing out of racist motivations for so many things, but it's a derail if it's brought up while discussing the mystery!

I personally think it's a disservice to her memory at this point, she's been reduced to a crime novel victim character in a book we're a quarter of the way through reading, thirsty to dive back in for the next development. There are online tears being shed looking through happy IG pics and loving postcards to kids like she was our little sister. But nobody gives a shit about her. Gotta catch that killer and finish the book

I'll leave it alone now, no more derail for me...just so wierd

Cross thread drama
Quote
Off topic, but I would frequent three threads quite regularly, with this and the Nintendo General thread being two of them. Let's just say that after recent revelations and events that that number has dropped to two. I appreciate the insight this thread brings and I hope we don't lose it.

Quote
A mod, CVXFreak, conspired against Chris1964, a long time JPN sales poster/compiler, resulting in a day ban that drove off the latter and several regular posters. This is coming off of another PAL sales poster being permanently banned from criticizing a mod off-site.

Honestly, this thread is my only reason to visit the website now.

Quote
It's among the saddest excuses for drama I've ever seen - the screenshots show nothing that's actually bad and the ban duration was one (1) day. Community threads by their insular nature are used to going largely unmoderated for very long periods of time and always take grave offense when rules get enforced there especially by "outsiders". We had to deal with this shit a stack of times back on oldgaf and it was always like this.

cvxfreak is a bit more "important" than Black Chamber.  He's actually in the industry and has connections to Limited Run Games as well as being a found of Brain Wave (https://bravewave.net/).  This is not a good situation for neither Era's industry legitimacy nor its staff.

The usual procedure is for the thread to get locked, reaction thread makers to be banned, posts in the constructive criticism to be banned/ignored, and let it blow over like all the other past times something similar happens.

cvxfreak is a bit more "important" than Black Chamber.  He's actually in the industry and has connections to Limited Run Games as well as being a found of Brain Wave (https://bravewave.net/).  This is not a good situation for neither Era's industry legitimacy nor its staff.

I have every faith in the Admins of ERA to make the worst decisions possible for the site's users and stability of the board.

People were banned before for off site drama and posting things other members wrote on social media. Does that mean it's ok to go witch hunting for what members post on other sites to get them penalized here?

Yep, it was already bad that he was on the receiving end of trolling and the troll got away with it and he got a warning. And it went from bad to worse when the mod got involved. And that's without anyone even knowing he had his eyes set on Chris from the beginning.

Man, this feeling sucks. SalesERA is one of my main reasons of being here.

My favorite part is that he wasn't attacking or insulting or smearing or accusing her of crimes or anything like that, he just simply said he doesn't think she should be an admin.

And they somehow found it and were quick to silently permaban.

The aggressive responses in here are clearly from people who don't actually read Japanese, only filtering the info through Google Translate for a surface level understanding, and then making assumptions about what the overarching point of the talk is, culminating in the perpetuation of false information. It needs to stop.

A thousand times this. The sheer arrogance of some folks drunk off their custom tags when they don't even understand the language of the country whose market they claim to be experts on (above people who actually work there, apparently) is completely bonkers and the main reason for the constant toxic atmosphere that plagues these threads. Just plain refusal to even entertain the notion that they may be wrong sometimes.

It's like the expert on japanese culture GAF meme, but actually serious.

Good grief indeed.

From the totally constructive community criticism thread

Quote from: Dmax3901, post: 73747567, member: 4989



I gotta be honest I read the sales thread and it just seemed like a bunch of toxic children getting mad they couldn't continue to be toxic children. The ban that kicked it all off was for a single day, lol. Also, the comparisons to Asian era and trans era were laughable, it's a fucking sales data thread.












Quote from: Dmax3901, post: 73755961, member: 4989

The ban might've been misguided, but again, it wasn't a permanent ban or even a long one. The mods came in with guidelines moving forward which suggests that, regardless of how things were before, there are now more strict rules that will need to be followed.



The mass bans you mention were largely people being openly hostile towards the mods, continuing to post things directly in violation of the rules that had just been laid out and making inappropriate comparisons to the situations with minority groups on Era. I even saw someone insinuate a mod was somehow tied to an industry executive and thats why people were being banned, lol.


Dmax being a total bitch and angling for that mod position :lol

When someone gets banned there is a sizeable portion Era that says, Well, they were banned so they must have done something bad.  Oh, that's all they did, well the mods promised to be kinder in the future.

Basically, What did she do wrong for her husband to beat her?

  • era mods are scrambling to communicate with chris and the other banned users who actually made a valuable contribution to their hellhole, promising them fruit baskets and offering them absolutely unfair amounts of protected user status if they'll just please come back
  • era mods are fuming at the user revolt and privately shitting all over chris for being such a fragile white snowflake to take his ball and go home over a one day ban, and may even comment alluding to it, "maybe sales era wasn't as much a community as everyone thought if a slap on the wrist was all it took to shatter it completely," everyone who speaks up will be banned and that will be the end of it

Quote from: Chris1964
I don't really care for the whole situation that has occured but since I'm a sales guy I'll go to the place where there is a similar audience and right now almost the entire sales community has moved away. It wasn't my intention to abandon NeoGAF anytime soon and certainly not with this way but with current circumstances it's very difficult to keep participating since I focus only to a one forum.

Since almost all with experience to create a Media Create thread have left I understand it will be difficult for someone new to offer a smooth transition and it will need a lot of patience but if there is willing there will be found a good solution sooner or later.

This will be the last post from me here, to those who will continue I wish good luck.

I wonder if B-Dubs gonna keep cvxfreak on staff despite the outcry. If he let cvxfreak go because Discord chats were leaked, then that may open the floodgates on getting other staff in trouble by leaking their dirty laundry. Off-site sleuthing was only suppose to be used against fellow regular members, not mod staff. That's probably was B-Dubs' original intent when he sanctioned off-site sleuthing against members during the CP 2077 debacle.

It is hilarious that the CP 2077 fallout continue to be a source of many of B-Dubs' problems with the mods and staff :lol

he has handed out dozens of bans every month in a userbase that really can't take that kind of hit

Absolutely not. When Tyler looks back he's more likely to think "I gave those backstabbing fucks the best years of my life and they abandoned me because some ungrateful slut got mad; but I showed them. I showed them all. I win fuckos. I always win."

one user was recently permabanned for being upset that while history has been made with the US's withdrawal from Afghanistan, any discussion about it is forbidden at gaf because it's political and there can be NO political discussion

they have seen nowhere near the precipitous dropoff that gaf has, but they have slipped a bit

this concludes the scholarly analysis of website rankings

So Evilore killed of what remained of Gaf, holy shit.

Lately most of my gaming discussion is related to YouTube comments lol. It's been more engaging than posting in Era or Gaf, now I know why lol

Quote from: CloseTalker, post: 73856266, member: 3383

The native PS5 version of Horizon Forbidden West is still listed at $10 more on PSN and every physical retailer, but it now offers no functional benefit to just buying the PS4 version and doing the free upgrade. No extra content, no reason to buy it other than to scam uninformed customers out of $10. Am I missing something? Does this not seem incredibly shitty?


Quote from: Chille, post: 73856800, member: 37658

I plan to pay the extra money, I have a PS5 the upgrade system is designed so you don't rebuy the game not to save money

It's a free upgrade program not a discount program. I have a PS5 I don't need to upgrade therfor il buy PS5.

I want to preface this by saying I know I'm not a Media Create regular. I don't believe I've ever even previously posted in one of these sales threads, since I'm relatively uninterested in sales data. However, as it is of a direct relevance to the present situation with Chris, I feel I should at least offer up something that suggests even further that Chris's ban was unwarranted.

These posts are from the Era-affiliated "BiohazardERA" (Resident Evil) Discord server, which I've been in for awhile. The official stance from a moderator of both the server, and site (cvxfreak) is that the server is literally an extension of Era, and thus, I feel it's fair game to post anything from it that would be pertinent to the present situation:

(https://i.imgur.com/u6Ktppt.png)

The snarky post that Chris was banned for occurred on September 19, at 9:14 AM PDT. This was after cvxfreak had already made some bad faith posts in the BiohazardERA server, mocking the Media Create regulars and community, and acting proud for "shutting Chris up":

(https://i.imgur.com/GQRmTN6.png)
(https://i.imgur.com/niQUYBY.png)
As can be seen, this post was made at on September 19, at 2:41 AM PDT, which... predates Chris's snarky post, obviously. How is it that cvxfreak is allowed to publicly (or privately, if you consider BiohazardERA to be a private community) make bad faith commentary against Chris and the Media Create community, but Chris is the one banned for perceived lack of decorum?

(https://i.imgur.com/XppueEG.png)

This is not the first time cvxfreak has behaved in bad faith, either, and I have further screenshots, should anyone be interested. I know this is about Chris, not me, but just recently, cvx brought up one of my Era bans to use against me in an argument, since a Resident Evil poll I made here did not go as he expected. Additionally, I've observed him waiting for one member in particular to slip-up, so that he can give him the banhammer.

If I get banned for this post, so be it. Thank you to all the mods and admins that have tried to keep the peace, but a serious conversation must be held with, and about the mods that do not.

I don't like to throw autistic round as an adjective recklessly, but people obsessed with collating data about their hobbies over a period of many years are definitely closer to the rain man side of things than not, so it should be absolutely fucking obvious to anyone (ie not resetera mods with their superpower of being extraordinarily shit at their one job) that dropping a ban on someone that was unfair, illogical, and was not justified by any formally established rules, was going to have that person absolutely fucking livid about it - even if it was "only one day" - and people of a similar mindset were absolutely going to have fucking 'receipts' for their follow up - because a big fucking chunk of their lives is collating 'receipts'

cvxfreak is a bit more "important" than Black Chamber.  He's actually in the industry and has connections to Limited Run Games as well as being a found of Brain Wave (https://bravewave.net/).  This is not a good situation for neither Era's industry legitimacy nor its staff.

Constructive thread slowly heating up, although I'm still expecting staff to successfully ignore it all away.
Quote from: TheMoon
This embarrassing showing over the weekend has hopefully finally illustrated for the last time that the way moderation is handled on the day-to-day needs to be seriously looked at.

The plain simple fact is that this forum is still being moderated in the same exact way as the orange shithole was with petty mod grudges and trigger happy ban-behavior to give people a "time out" when a warning would have perfectly sufficed. Bans don't do shit when your "offense" is some basic form of complaining about a thing (among them moderation issues, things that used to be called "thread whining"). They usually happen for a reason. And instead of addressing the cause for it, the symptoms get ...well, banned.

Moderation is difficult, we get it. Especially if you're trying to moderate a huge place and want to generally do right by people and all the various communities that often aren't done right by in the day-to-day. Sure. But I can't think of a more unconstructive and, frankly, immature way to deal with people having heated discussions or getting hung up in an argument than a ban. Be it a day or a week or three days. What's the difference? It's not constructive. All you do is "shut people up" for a bit. Something this board has that the old place didn't is a "warning" feature. Use it. This should be the go-to move instead of a ban. A ban should be something pulled out for serious offenses.

Do fucking better.

PS: Something I've always found incredibly bizarre is how folks working in the industry even end up with mod rights here at all. I got it somewhat in the old place as all of that was probably just some legacy bs from its baby days and also some kind of grasp for legitimacy when you have Names on your mod list. Reeks of some version of conflict of interest. If industry folks want to get involved here because they like the place and they have the time, that's great. But should they handle moderation?
Quote from: The Adder
Quote from: ArkkAngel007
And then there's the repetition of the overall issue for years now of the same song and dance on how harassers and trolls seem to conveniently avoid staff notice while community members get the initial/only bans.

Disclaimer before defensive, bad faith responses appear: I'm not equating the struggles of harassment vulnerable communities here deal with to those with the hobby/pop culture/data communities. No one has, and shame on certain people for using the former inadvertently or intentionally that way to deflect criticism and bury the issue. This is entirely focused on the apparent S.O.P. of staff in responding to the baseline issues of harassment and trolls, not the content or targets/victims.
There's also a better comparison to what happened here than TransEra.

Right down to the detail, this is literally just what happened to PoliEra all over again. Every detail.

And like what happened there, I expect the majority of old regulars to leave for good, the loudest of the trolls to take over until they work themselves into permabans (because they just can't help themselves) and for the few remaining newer regulars from before this self-inflicted wound occurred to take over from there.

But like with any endeavor, from a business to a nation to a simple team, this place isn't going to survive repeated purges of its institutional knowledge.

But for some reason the lesson is never learned.

Quote from: Nairume
Quote from: NinjaScooter
Its the issue with moderation that has come up nearly every time there has been a blow up like this:  People who probably shouldn't be mods, who seemingly incompetent at dealing with people, or are petty and thin skinned,, are given that title, secondly, the mods seemingly don't follow their own rules (we've been told over and over that it takes 3 mods to agree to every ban, yet when there is an unjust or questionable ban the moderation team suddenly feigns ignorance), and lastly the moderation is incredibly inconsistent (which in part probably can be attributed to point 1), largely it feels like the moderation team can't seem to find that right balance of not being heavy handed where they aren't needed, and being incredibly lax in areas where moderation is necessary.  Often some individuals are banned for seemingly the slightest of infractions, yet toxic trolling and bad faith posting goes unchecked.  If I have to see another ban message again where someone is banned for "multiple instances of" things like racism, or blatant trolling/console warring on the gaming side, like what is the point of giving people so many chances with issues like that?  Is there some hope that these people are somehow going to turn into valuable contributors to this community?   It is exhausting to put that on the community to try and deal with, so its not surprise when people get frustrated or clap back at them, only to be met with moderator action themselves.  You have to understand why that sort of wild inconsistency doesn't sit well, or leave the community here with much faith in the moderators.
Part of my frustration in all of this is that, in the end, it seems like a non insignificant amount of the staff are in it to be prominent members of the community but don't want to actually being community leaders and downright resent being asked to lead. It is gross how many calls to action get ignored at best and excuses at worse, only for actions taken largely feeling more punitive towards those who asked for action than those who actually deserve it. Even questioning a bad decision is more likely to end up with punishment being dealt out than actually causing sincere problems.

I know there is no easy way to run a large community (been there, don't that!), but this clearly isn't it.

Quote from: Jimmy Joe
I would like to suggest that "mod whining" is not a good reason to ban people when the grievances raised are legitimate

"People would get away with a lot if we didn't ban them for that," one might say, and one would be right

But at the same time, the consequences of banning people for "mod-whining" when their grievances are legitimate is creating the impression that the mod team is arbitrarily authoritarian, and quicker to respond to people questioning that authority than to issues like endemic trolling


I initially thought they'd just Royalan him

To clarify, you mean demod for a couple of months, but still post as a highly protected user with custom tag, and then silently re-mod them when the fuss dies down?

Pretty much, but iirc the full Royalan also requires saying they chose to step down out of respect for the community, so when stealth bringing him back is questioned later you can go "Admins never thought it needed to go that far in the first place!" and retroactively basically make it like nothing was ever wrong in the first place.

It’s still amazing that of all the mods with insensitive or racist posts on neogaf only Royalan suffered any actual consequences despite being the tamest of the bunch.  I forget exactly what he said but it was supposedly transphobic yet Excel had agreed with his post at the time.  Bdubs used the N word and Morrigan has made extremely islamophobic posts but they’re white so no consequences.

Morrigan has made extremely islamophobic posts but they’re white so no consequences.

Wrt - were they legitimately islamophobic posts, or just people reeing about her bitching about women not being allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia and gays being chucked off of roofs by the TaliERA?

I’ve only seen the claim made on resetera not the proof but it wouldn’t surprise me, she is from Quebec after all.  That and protecting nazis as a mod on a metal forum doesn’t help her case either.

Bans don't do shit when your "offense" is some basic form of complaining about a thing

Quote
Something this board has... is a "warning" feature. Use it. This should be the go-to move instead of a ban. A ban should be something pulled out for serious offenses.

Quote
Something I've always found incredibly bizarre is how folks working in the industry even end up with mod rights here at all. ... Reeks of some version of conflict of interest.

Quote
Its the issue with moderation that has come up nearly every time there has been a blow up like this:  People who probably shouldn't be mods, who seemingly incompetent at dealing with people, or are petty and thin skinned,, are given that title, secondly, the mods seemingly don't follow their own rules (we've been told over and over that it takes 3 mods to agree to every ban, yet when there is an unjust or questionable ban the moderation team suddenly feigns ignorance), and lastly the moderation is incredibly inconsistent (which in part probably can be attributed to point 1)

Quote
I would like to suggest that "mod whining" is not a good reason to ban people when the grievances raised are legitimate

Thank you for your patience, there was a lot we needed to look into and a lot of discussions that needed to be had across time zones. We recognize that a lot of the damage is already done and cannot be undone, but we're going to explain this from the beginning as best we can.

This whole thing started when Chris1964 was warned for antagonism in response to a post from Caiops which seemed pretty innocent at the time. We did receive complaints about Caiops afterwards, but none of those complaints could point to any examples of clear trolling, and searching his history didn't turn anything up either. We had already decided to investigate him more closely yesterday morning, but last night we received a tip which included the smoking gun we wish we'd had from the start: Caiops has admitted off-site that he doesn't actually care about Japanese sales.

If we'd known that at the beginning it's likely that none of this would have happened. As is, clearly a subtle troll was able to get away with it, and warning Chris1964 for snapping at him was a mistake. We apologize for that unreservedly.

With regard to Cvxfreak we have to clarify that the screenshots from Discord are NOT about any moderator action; the times listed are Japan Standard Time and Cvxfreak was talking about an argument he'd had with Chris1964 about the Japanese gaming industry. That was a day before Chris1964 made the post that ended up receiving a one day ban. No single moderator is ever solely responsible for a ban and there wasn't any abuse of power.

Cvxfreak was asked to help with the thread because he's been following it for years and knows Japan and the industry as well as anyone does. He did his honest best to understand the issues in the community and privately consulted active posters. He admits now however that the concerns he brought to the staff were incomplete at best and ignorant of more severe and pressing issues at worst. In turn the staff was blindsided by the intensity of the backlash to the guidelines and the way individual staff were targeted personally when they tried to mediate. We want to address this point again in a bit.

Again we understand at this point that a lot of the damage is done and can't now be reversed, but here is what we have done: Caiops has been permanently banned. We are cancelling the new guidelines because they were created without a complete understanding of the issues. The initial warning has been removed from Chris1964's record, and because the ban was escalated off that warning, it's been removed as well. Cvxfreak will be taking a leave of absence from the staff and when he returns he will voluntarily recuse himself from any moderation regarding sales.

One thing we do need to address bluntly: Criticism and concerns are fine, displeasure with what are ultimately collective decisions are fine, we know we can make mistakes and we made plenty here. But vitriol and targeted hate is never going to fly, particularly when singling out individual staff just for being a messenger and trying to help. We've drawn that line because nobody is going to want to moderate this place if personal attacks are their constant reward. It's a lot harder to keep the peace here than you might think. Ban appeals will receive a fair hearing but this point must be understood.

We sincerely regret the mistakes on our end and how this all played out. We can't decide for anyone whether they'll keep participating here, but it was never our intention to drive anyone off.

This is even more of a nothing than the Royalan treatment, and I'd argue cvxfreak's actual issue here is worse. He was happily moderating where he had personal bias, and clearly not disclosing to the rest of staff that he was shitting on posters in an era-affiliated discord (which, I mean, they all do, but it's an Actual Concern.) Hoping the guy with the receipts posts the other stuff he mentioned.

This actually exposes a harsh truth about era mentality.

There are not "allies" to "groups" for them because it's us/them for EVERYTHING.


Also, having to recuse yourself from moderating a sales thread on a gaming forum cause you got caught loling at others on a discord.

CVX and their shit behavior lead to the destruction of a well established Community who has been alive and supported through its members for almost 10+ years, and across two major websites.

CVX doing so, with shitty intent which is provable and then not getting the retribution he deserves is no different than asshole Cops abusing their power to harm others and then expect the rules to not apply to them.

It has to be hard to be Era staff. You hate, loathe, and detest drama, but everything you do generates a drama overflow. Constantly damned to suffer by your own involuntary state of being.

cvxfreak is a bit more "important" than Black Chamber.  He's actually in the industry and has connections to Limited Run Games as well as being a found of Brain Wave (https://bravewave.net/).  This is not a good situation for neither Era's industry legitimacy nor its staff.

Would appear that this prediction came true with cvx even remaining a mod

I do respect the staff post, and there's a lot to cover in response, but I want to respond specifically to this tidbit, before anything else.

The times listed are not Japanese. I live in Los Angeles, California, and both my Discord and Era accounts reflect the current time in LA. It wouldn't make sense for my screenshots to display a Japanese time zone.

My Era time zone setting:

(https://i.imgur.com/fWxrpyp.png)

A Discord timestamp from roughly 20 minutes ago:

(https://i.imgur.com/ZnHX8o5.png)

With it established that my time zones are consistent, and synced across Era and Discord, it's clear I never pulled any kind of shady shenanigans, with regards to timestamps. Let's look once more at the post that originally got Chris banned:

(https://i.imgur.com/WDyaR35.png)

Ok, so September 19, at 9:14 AM, Los Angeles time.

And now, a screenshot I just took, of the exact same message I already posted yesterday:

(https://i.imgur.com/faTFmhG.png)

Alright, so September 19, at 2:41 AM, Los Angeles time.

That means cvxfreak's post predates that of Chris1964 by just under seven hours. I never claimed otherwise. I literally used the word "predates" in my initial post:

Quote from: Aurc
As can be seen, this post was made at on September 19, at 2:41 AM PDT, which... predates Chris's snarky post, obviously.

Intent was never to show that cvxfreak was "gloating about banning Chris", because yes, his posts took place before Chris was banned. Intent was to show proof that there was prior precedent for animosity between the two parties, and lack of good faith.

its because they want to have their cake and eat it too by having their mods be 'forum personalities' but also janitors doing routine fucking administrative duties to allow conversation to occur (theoretically the point of mods).
Any fucking lurking monkey can action posts reported by other users that break rules.
It's where you don;t have a clear list of rules and you just arbitrarily decide things are or aren't okay by some bullshit ((common sense + muh feels) / secret history of histories * secret moderator notes) + tribunal group vote formula you get this bullshit, which is still 'asshole mods do what the fuck they want' but wrapped in the thinnest veneer of legitimacy "if only you could all see the information that we have (that we deliberately keep secret)"

Quote from: Kaitos (Moderator)
I'm gonna respond to this as someone who has been a casual reader of MC threads for a long time -- sometimes it's very hard to understand the context of a report.. For example, I skim these threads every week (skim, to be clear, mostly for my weird obsession with if the Series X is going to do well in Japan even though I don't own one yet), and it's still sometimes difficult for me to discern what is earnest and what is a troll without the proper context of the body of a user's history. We try our best, but given the number of reports we get, sometimes we don't have all the information easily available to us. And it can be really hard to understand the nuance of a report. When someone reports something as just "trolling", that isn't the most useful information because -- siloed from any context -- it might come across as simply a disagreement. We also cannot be in every single community at every given time, so we often lack the body of knowledge you all have. That's why the more detailed reports would be significantly more helpful to help us help you so we can actually understand the context of an individual troll who is potentially subtle.

We missed the mark on Caiops and I think we have to discuss the reporting system at large, but we can only go off of what's reported and the less detailed the report is, the more likely it is for something like this to fall through the cracks.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON?  SO WHY ARE YOU IDIOTS JUST BANNING PEOPLE LEFT AND RIGHT ALL THE TIME?

Morrigan has made extremely islamophobic posts but they’re white so no consequences.

Wrt - were they legitimately islamophobic posts, or just people reeing about her bitching about women not being allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia and gays being chucked off of roofs by the TaliERA?

iirc they were ironically along the lines of something a Richard Dawkins loving neckbeard atheist would have posted :teehee

Quote from: Kaitos
I get that we missed the mark on Caiops and I'm not disagreeing with your point at all. I'm trying to explain why there was a failure of the system to understand that Caiops was a troll. Personally, and this is because I'm a stupid person not speaking for a single other mod on the site, I find trying to discern trolls in Sales threads fairly difficult because you also are able to use real sales data to obfuscate your troll. And yeah, I get the response to that is "if you can't figure it out why do you have this job", I told you, I'm stupid. But I think sometimes the obviousness within the community does not come across to those of us who are dealing with multiple different reports in multiple different communities with nuances that we are trying to learn about given that it's probably impossible for our mod staff to have members who take part in literally every single community on this board. That's why the ticket with the screenshots from the Brazilian message board was a little personally frustrating to me -- so, it was known that this user was posting on a Brazilian message board talking about how they don't care about Japanese sales? Yes, that gives us the necessary context now in this thread to make a decision. But if you all know about and we don't, then we can't use that information. We can look at post history, but at some point, we are going to need more help than just a report that says "trolling."

Again, I can't talk for the mod team, I'm more just talking for myself about experiencing the report system from the other side after being on ***/ERA for a while.

I don't know if you'll find this post useful or just frustrating, I'm just trying to explain a little more of our side's context.

"I only speak for myself, not any other mod, but wanted to explain the mod side of things."

that's not how explaining works

The first guideline of the mods is to protect their own. Truly everything else comes later  :lol

So incredibly blatant that a moderation, that's incredibly strict, one that permabans someone over a random tweet reply, is suddenly all forgiving and understanding when it hits one of their own. They already did the same when Nepenthe derailed a whole thread sideways with her shit

It was an extremely helpful piece of information that helped people who aren't regular Sales ERA users get the context needed to inform our decision-making process. If you know there is a user who is posting on a Brazilian message board about trolling on ERA, that is helpful for us! That helps us do our jobs better.

Its not that hard to understand.  It’s fine if it’s used to get someone the mods don’t like banned, otherwise it’s internet detective work and you will be banned for posting outside links.

No longer a mod but sure, I always engaged with people willing to talk in good faith.

I watched for days people heap amounts of vitriol towards people I know are good and well-meaning and have worked hard and did their best,  often losing sleep over it, only for it to be brushed aside completely, the explanation rejected, the constant demand for his head like this would solve all their problems, nevermind that cvxfreak was one of our few staff members who even had any idea what goes on in these threads. So yeah, I wrote stuff off the cuff in a Discord about people I found excessively childish and pathetic (to be clear this isn't aimed at just random criticism but those going over the top about it, cop comparisons and whatnot). I do that all the time when excessive shitstorms like that happen. I don't care if this upsets you. For the record it never once affected my moderation decisions. People might expect mods to be robots but nope, sorry to disappoint. Off-duty we talk shit sometimes. Shocking, gasp!

Btw I've banned more people from that Discord and routinely yell at them when they troll/platform war/fanboy like idiots, so this is also kind of funny to think I'm "protecting them" by just saying "don't worry, if you say you like us and don't break the rules you're fine". Anyway

Cvxfreak is a good person and describing what he did as a power trip, malicious, etc. is frankly what makes me the most sad about all of this. Sorry dude. You don't deserve it.

Quote from: Morrigan
No longer a mod but sure, I always engaged with people willing to talk in good faith.

I watched for days people heap amounts of vitriol towards people I know are good and well-meaning and have worked hard and did their best,  often losing sleep over it, only for it to be brushed aside completely, the explanation rejected, the constant demand for his head like this would solve all their problems, nevermind that cvxfreak was one of our few staff members who even had any idea what goes on in these threads. So yeah, I wrote stuff off the cuff in a Discord about people I found excessively childish and pathetic (to be clear this isn't aimed at just random criticism but those going over the top about it, cop comparisons and whatnot). I do that all the time when excessive shitstorms like that happen. I don't care if this upsets you. For the record it never once affected my moderation decisions. People might expect mods to be robots but nope, sorry to disappoint. Off-duty we talk shit sometimes. Shocking, gasp!

Btw I've banned more people from that Discord and routinely yell at them when they troll/platform war/fanboy like idiots, so this is also kind of funny to think I'm "protecting them" by just saying "don't worry, if you say you like us and don't break the rules you're fine". Anyway

Locking the thread is now driving more posts to constructive. Initial responses to Nepenthe's post are, well:
Quote from: Rellik
Wow at the last message in the MC thread. That’s not how to fix things IMO
Quote from: entrydenied

(re:morrigan's stuff)
Yeah it's the " can't wait to ban this person" glee that gets me. I hate that the Japanese sales community is probably gone, along with the members who have offered so much.

I get that modding is thankless and hard but seeing the mistakes repeated over and over, continually driving communities away from here tells me there's a big problem with the way we choose mods and the way the site is moderated.
Quote from: KoolAid
I get that Nepenthe must be absolutely exhausted about everything that has been going on with the MC threads, but I am not sure that last post before lock is the way to go about it.
Quote from: Hasney
Yeah, that's just pouring gasoline on the situation. What in the absolute heck?!
Quote from: Weebos
The endless cycle of driving posters and communities away should signal that the moderation needs to change. It should have signaled that several cycles ago.

Moderators are people too, and they're not paid, but something is seriously wrong with how this site operates.

More constructive thread (z e r o from the staff in here, but users getting feisty):
Quote from: Papercuts,
Why did the user who posted that morrigan stuff get permabanned? I thought you couldn’t talk poorly of users off site?
Quote from: purseowner
You also can't bring off-site drama onto Era, hence the ban.
Quote from: SubvertedTrope
Predictably, every time something like this happens, a bunch of people show up to shit on the mods cause they're mad about previous bans. Like that IceMonk 'user', I know whose alt that is dumbass.
Quote from: Jakenbakin
It was evidence of that thread literally being brigaded and encouragement of that action. They banned that poster?
Quote from: Kinthey
There just seems to be a big double standard about when off-site stuff is applicable and when not.
Quote from: Big-E
Its another period of time where the mods can actually look at the situation and start to reflect on why things end up this way and time and again they decide to just purge everyone. Biggest issue with moderation is not looking at themselves when fires are constantly happening and nothing seems to improve.
Quote from: KoolAid
And as expected, locking the MC thread is just making people open new threads. Why do I feel this is going to have a bigger impact than the PoliERA, AsianERA and TransERA stuff just because it is games related?
Quote from: TheChits
How can members want to hold a mod accountable for their actions and words without being involved in a "harassment campaign"?
Quote from: Papercuts
Trying to report and bring the attention of mods doing this to the mods themselves seems like…well.

Calling it a harassment campaign when it’s her own words is ridiculous.
Quote from: ikaben
Do admins or mods reply in here? Or, are we just talking to a wall?
Quote from: Mary Celeste
maybe I'm wrong, but from what I've seen it's an unwritten rule that users are not allowed to take negatively about moderators without getting permabanned. Morrigan got called out earlier in that thread by another user and was hit by a permaban too, and I've seen it happen many times over the years.
Quote from: EvilChameleon
Nooooo we need less moderators right now, not more. There are currently 38 moderators listed on the roster in the pinned thread. I'm very confident we could cut that in half to 19 and not see any issues in the day to day moderation of this forum.

This guy: always a dick
Quote from: SubvertedTrope
No one actually gives a fuck what morrigan said, it's about clapping back at her/anyone they have a clear shot at. It's the most transparent thing.
At this point I'm fully expecting the mod ruling to be that that guy deserved to be banned for posting, instead of reporting privately, with those screenshots. Bruno's ban wasn't posted on Era and is, as such, a-ok. Convince the community not to trust you, then demand their only recourse is to trust your private system. what could go wrong.

But wasn't by that logic Morrigan also participating in a harassment campaign?  :thinking

Nanashrew was also a scumbag and pretty sure he had mod protection... that means he was genuinely pissed off and risked all by posting those screenshots. Most assholes of that forum know how rotten the moderation is, but choose to go with it because it benefits them.

re: this

I don't know that anyone is actually trolling/harassing any mods directly, they ban anyone who does it to their face, and it's not like anyone is out there TPing their actual house

I don't count poking fun at them from afar as harassment any more than it's harassment for anyone to laugh at anything, trump, nicki minaj, jj abrams, bean dad, whatever you got


but I would note that era has like 50 mods and the majority of them have never been mentioned in this thread or anywhere else because they don't do or say anything embarrassing

It's super hilarious to me that they're using 'off site harassment campaign', since literally Morrigan was off-site trying to use her mod powers to encourage posters to post in a specific way on-site. Like literally doing what you'd expect to be the definition of off-site harassment campaign, but nah, the actual problem is just acknowledging it on-site.

has anyone even asked where nanashrew got those screenshots from? was nanashrew in a private mod discord somehow? morrigan wouldn't be talking like that in a general era discord like poliera etc.

I ended up checking and he uses the same name on Twitter as he did on Era. Not a ton of additional information on there, but he is or was apparently a mod on whatever Discord:
https://twitter.com/Nanashrew/status/1440762872171155471

Also apparently was just legit mad at Morrigan encouraging brigading the thread:

Playstation Era discord, where she's a mod.  I'm not in there nor do I know if Nanashrew was in there or if he got it from someone else, but that's where it's from. 

And she would absolutely talk like that.  I was in the PCera discord at one point and she would regularly say that and worse stuff about regular users.

screengrabbing this was prectitable and honestly, pathetic. you people are just proving CVX and Morrigan's point that you can't handle something and literally started a witch hunt.



with this attitude of mobhunting anyone who isn't pro whatever is going on? good luck. go make your own forum or something.

I get that there are a lot of wannabe mods with their lips permanently attached to mod assholes, but Jesus Christ.

The ones always doing the mob hunting, finally on the receiving end. What a shame.

by the way nintendoera discord has gained 242 new members today and counting, it seems like the primary lifeboat at this time

they renamed themselves to nintendo pipeline in the past hour and are formally distancing from era

everyone is shitting on era mods there but I think it's a "get it out of your system" thing because as per the rules they really just want to focus on the games and not drama

These Discord receipts might not be happening if B-Dubs hadn't sanctioned off-site sleuthing during the CDPR disaster. All it did was give users the green light to hunt of shit off-site to get others banned. B-Dubs probably didn't think it would be used against him and his mod pals.

When it does, that will be the end of this. Any more of this bullshit after I post will be actioned accordingly.

And of course it comes from Nepenthe, the one who permabanned a guy for a random twitter comment

The extra added funny, at this point, is that from what I remember Nepenthe was elevated to admin from mod in large part because of her response when the Asian Era summit stuff flared up. After everyone was pissed at staff, she stepped in with a less harsh and more conciliatory tone, and seemed to at least temporarily calm people down. I mostly just remember a lot of users being super grateful to her specifically in the early stages, before the constructive thread got going and people gradually realized fuck-all was actually changing.

Reusing her in this particularly community flare up might have seemed smart because of that, but this one has way more whites involved soooo

But nah gotta twist it all out of proportion like always.

The "She should be let slide because she's a KF target!" thing just baffles me; it'd make sense if she'd been a target for more of the issue, but the seemingly bannable shit she did is why she's a target.

Quote from: Dmax3901
Here's what I think, as someone who was initially critical of the response to Chris being banned for a day:

- mods have fucked up in multiple, easily avoidable ways since this all kicked off.
- a lot of the shit people got banned for after the initial Chris banning was justified, it's irrelevant to me what came out later, at that point we were all operating on the same information.
- the timezone defense was bizarre.
- CVX should no longer be a mod.
- Bruno saying "someone like Nepenthe being a mod tells you all you need to know" on twitter has discriminatory connotations and I imagine that is why they were perm'd.
- I'll also note that I personally feel there is a difference between a public twitter account easily found via searching vs screencaps of a discord requiring an invite when it comes to venting about forum drama.
- I agree with what hupla posted above regarding Morrigan, she's stepped down as a mod, is only human, and has had full-blown kiwi farm harassment campaigns levied at her (not criticism, harassment). Cut her some slack.

Despite all of this I totally understand why people would just want to be done with this place after such a cluster fuck of a situation. I still think this place at its core is worth sticking with, working with the mods to improve it rather than bailing entirely. But again, I don't blame anyone for doing so.

Also cites the "someone like" as being obviously a racist jab at Nepenthe, so that does seem to be the official explanation for why it's ok to ban for off-site harassment despite racism not being in the ban message.

I gotta be honest I read the sales thread and it just seemed like a bunch of toxic children getting mad they couldn't continue to be toxic children. The ban that kicked it all off was for a single day, lol. Also, the comparisons to Asian era and trans era were laughable, it's a fucking sales data thread.


Quote from: Dmax3901, post: 73755961, member: 4989

The ban might've been misguided, but again, it wasn't a permanent ban or even a long one. The mods came in with guidelines moving forward which suggests that, regardless of how things were before, there are now more strict rules that will need to be followed.

The mass bans you mention were largely people being openly hostile towards the mods, continuing to post things directly in violation of the rules that had just been laid out and making inappropriate comparisons to the situations with minority groups on Era. I even saw someone insinuate a mod was somehow tied to an industry executive and thats why people were being banned, lol.

I mean, given the tone of Nepenthe's lock message, they could definitely be planning to give Morrigan the Royalan treatment--she stepped down of her own volition because of not-on-forum stuff, and their act of banning the guy who posted the screenshots immediately after another mod lamented people not ratting out off-site misbehavior more makes it super clear where their sympathies lie. Once she's had some time to recover they can just add her back in. If the Sales/Nintendo exodus actually sticks, there won't be that many people around who know/care to complain if they do.

Yeah, people don't like Nepenthe because she's black.  It's not because she's a psychotic hot head larping as a civil rights era leader while spending all her time behind a keyboard and spending tens of thousands of dollars on fursuits as she excises other marginalized communities like the Trans and Asian ones on the forum she moderates.  Can't be that all.

She's also the only minority on the mod team, so of course anyone who dislikes her must be racist

I like how they think the backlash against Rowling has destroyed Harry Potter’s legacy.

Go to Universal Studios or the Harry Potter studio tour and see how many people know or care what a TERF is while they’re buying Hogwarts scarves for their kids.

No one cares about Fantastic Beasts because it’s the mediocre cash-in spin-off without most of the characters and situations that fans like, not because of the author’s opinion on puberty blockers.

The whole reason why KiwiFarms cared enough to identify her is because she was already pretty infamous in some online circles of the metal community. Nanashrew is asking “why it took so long“  ::) but he and his social circle already knew all this and I doubt this was the first time she shit talked others at discord. You are the guys that made her and the other mods untouchable to start with as you ignored all this until they damaged a group you cared about it.

So go fuck yourself nanashrew, you cunt. I would commend you sacrificing your Era account if you didn’t went to “is so unfair this keeps happening”  ::) .

  • era finally pissing off the wrong person with just the right amount of libel to get them sued into oblivion
  • era bullying someone into suicide with undeniable evidence linking it to the site
  • a user going off the deep end committing political violence, with a clear manifesto across their posts on era
  • abuse scandals among leadership

yeah, IIRC he came out saying specific users who'd said they don't like EGS (Nzyme, Alexandros, GhostTrick off the top of my head) in threads about EGS were also harrassing him off site because he's asian (did anyone even know that?) and they hate him because RACIST and also EGS because RACIST.
Those posters replied to him with  ??? ??? ??? :doge ??? ??? ???
then he ran off to twitter to continue claiming that, and then his buckfuddy 2Bee made a troll account about EGS IS STILL AWESOME to try and ban bait, and also recycling SockPuppet McDipshits allegations

Gabby's mother received a text from Gabby on the 27th but for which there are strong reasons to believe it wasn't written by her:

So like the police? I guess that may be an unfair comparison when difference is that mods don't get paid, and therefore don't have paid leave.

He could well be dead and eaten by gators at this point. All they may ever find of him is a limb or two. Who knows.

Honestly, except for the weird behavior of the boyfriend and his parents, there really isn't much of a "mystery" to this case. It seems pretty clear-cut. I guess there's some question of exactly what happened and how/when he did it, but the broad strokes seem pretty self-evident and aren't likely to change much from this point forth.

Anybody actually wanting to sink their teeth into a real-life true "crime" (I put that word in quotes because there's no certainty that a crime was ever committed) mystery should check out the case of Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon. Now that's a mystery that'll eat away at your brain.

This isn't some big site news so why would they do that?  Things are already back to normal and those Nintendo threads are plenty active.   I guess the next thing is seeing if the people providing sales numbers start up their own forum or if someone pops up to take their places.

Same, it's a shame it's attached to such a reprehensible company. D4 and this were among my most anticipated games but AB's actions have killed any desire I have to engage with their products.
