My ERA crush is secretly Morrigan, but I can never confess my feelings because it will be construed as misogyny and sexual harassment and I'd be permed.

Ben is legit one of the most worthless hires they've ever made though. Jeff Gerstmann clearly just has a crush on him because he's the one person in the games press thats taller than him.
it's true, and just about every hire on the west side has been white dudes Jeff knows and Dan was like the only hire that turned out good

abby is good if just for the generational gap and different perspective, although when she tries to say anything clever the rest of the crew halts the momentum of the conversation to point it out and it sucks every time.

Nah, Ben and Abby can be funny when they dial down the obnoxious, is cute with Dan because seems genuine even when is not. They are better when they just act like themselves than having some word quirk (Abby is a fangirl and Ben always say the wrong information: Funny!). Thank god they buried that Dating Sim troll bait feature, they really wanted to push a bad joke to its limits.

Austin was okay, and he could be great if he just forgets the college activism stuff and trying to have his niche of woke followers. But Waypoint happened so he only doubling it down, what a waste.

Ben's calmed down and fit in better with Jeff. They do better with just the two of them. Dan went through a similar process with JeffDad.

Moderation def lacks the teeth of the old forum though that seems to be by design at this point. Which is admittedly a tad confusing, given some of the current mods were the ones fighting for various marginalized groups at the old forum, but I assume they don't actually get to dictate policy here.

As for trans issue themselves it's the usual mix of fear/hate, and ppl not knowing about sex/gender differences in general. People also tend to only empathize with groups of people they know well, or are a member of.

This forum also has a tendency to be contrarian or for ppl to feel the need to play devil's advocate for some reason, no matter the topic.
I've had a couple of threads shut down by mods simply because a particular mod didn't the post. These threads contained no arguing but just to kill the thread. That's poor moderation.

If the thread makes people sad or possibly angry, they want to shut down discourse.

Threads such as:
Gun violence
Racism
Police Treatment.
Etc.

They don't want cages rattled to keep whoever happy.

A certain member PMed me a while ago about how PMing the mods, even with evidence, was essentially like talking to a brick wall, at least in regards to their concerns about transphobia and misogyny, which is a thing that goes back to GAF as well. I'm not going to say the person who PMed me was completely in the right as I don't have all the details, but the behaviour of some posters in threads about trans people does make me more inclined to believe them.
wow, things really sound terrible over there, i can't imagine a forum where you report things to the moderators and nothing happens

I see the powers that be ordered the thread exposing ERA's right-wing leanings to be locked silently. Really starting to wonder who exactly is pulling the strings behind the scenes at ERA as part of an extensive organized effort to suppress social progress.

Remember when Tyler permed that transgender poster for accusing him of allowing transphobia on GAF?  Boy, that was a bad look!  But then they did call him Gargamel and a bigot instead of simply pointing out inconsistencies in moderation

Vinny has always been the best Giant Bomb person, he has gotten a little bit more boring after being a Dad/the political correctness increase though. I realized that I don't mind Abby's terrible opinions on games as much when I think about how Jeff's opinions are equally bad and random. Like if you read an old Jeff Gerstmann review from when he was her age it's basically the level of critique that she has now. Only reason anyone actually respects Jeff's opinions is because he's been around for so long.

You have to question why so many trans people on this website feel that their concerns aren't being heard and this place is almost apathetic to their plight, to the point where Cream (and at least one other Trans person I know) gets them self banned for it.

SweetNicole.  When you write the same paragraph twice and try to pretend it's two separate thoughts and then out a mod as transgender.

Quote
As the community manager and a transgender person myself, I can assure that transgender concerns are being heard loud and clear. I head up the TransEra discord server, and I'm the creator of the TransEra OT. We have several other members of staff who are transgender as well, and I can assure you we we're all plugged into the trans community here at ResetEra, listening, and soliciting feedback. As I stated before, there's always at least one of us involved in a moderation decision regarding transphobia. This was already stated in the mod post.

Please stop trying to push this false narrative like the ResetEra staff isn't listening to transgender people, doesn't have transgender people on their staff, or isn't plugged into the transgender community. None of this true. We're always listening, always listening to feedback, and always trying to do a better job, particularly when it comes to combating things like racism, sexism, or transphobia. It will never be perfect, but we'll try and do our best.

Edit: Selina, one of the other administrators and one of the mod captains who heads up moderation here at ResetEra, is transgender as well. If you want further proof how absolutely absurd your statement is.
