Threadmarks Concerning the Community
This is something i've wanted to get off my chest for awhile. With the current news of JaseC leaving, I think it's the right time to bring it up. Even if some might not want to hear it. Several posts in the last few pages are perfect examples of why JaseC left. The constant pokes at mods and general negative attitudes from time to time, make this thread hard to post in for anyone, even the old guard.

Unbeknownst to most, JaseC actually wanted to step down further back. So I can understand why he finally had enough. Hell, It's why I haven't been posting in this community as much as I used to because I haven't felt welcome. But I would still call it home.

I know the EGS stuff as well as other cases can get heated in numerous ways. But none of this is worth driving off good members of the community who only ever wanted to help. Hostility (even as a joke) can end up driving away the people who care the most afterall.

Staff Posts Final Warning
From day one our mission has been to keep as much of this site and community together as possible. After reviewing recent events and everything leading up to it, we concede with broken hearts that at least in part we have failed.

A lot of posts we've seen on the past few pages are embarassing, toxic, and inexcusable. This is not just about the staff we have lost who have thrown their hands up in frustration and sadness. It's also about the many messages we've received from members who have felt intimidated and driven off. It's about all the posters who don't feel welcome here in a thread about one of the largest platforms in gaming.

Get back on the topic of PC gaming and stay there and do not derail this thread again with metacommentary.

The tone-deafness of the mods there is just  :neogaf

I remember when the mods said that the Steam thread didn't deserve protection from random members entering to stir up console-war shit because "steam isn't a console".

I don't follow Steam or 'console warring' or even gaming side in general, but even I could tell how fucking short-sighted they were being.

If you arent happy with how you're treated on purple gaf, pm each other pick a spot, go somewhere else or make something else. Nothing but your own lack of action is keeping you there friends.
https://metacouncil.com/ seems to be the PC GAF refuge site and it's very chill there, worth checking out for those that were bant.

ah, already mentioned. i like it, kinda like a combo of reddit/forum without being fully either. If it ever got really big it'd be a complete shitshow though :lol

I mean, outside of game OTs, I hardly post about PC gaming outside of this thread. The amount of hostility towards PC gamers on this board is ridiculous.

Make Yourself Accountable

With zero exceptions, everything I do online is under my real name.  From emails to Twitter, I’m very easy to find, and if a problem arose, it’d be very difficult for me to claim ignorance or other such misdeeds.

That is on purpose.  If I say something dumb, or do something wrong, it’s on me.  I haven’t had any major problems since I started using social media, but if I did, it’d be pretty easy for me to take responsibility for it.  This is a good thing.  Don’t hide behind a fake identity – If you wouldn’t stand by what you say in public, don’t say it at all. And if you made a mistake, own up to it and move on.
•Avoid Unnecessary Topics

This one’s easy.  My general rule for workplace conversations is to avoid things that could spark heated debate – politics, race, et cetera.  This is doubly so for social media, since the platform usually offers you more time to unleash your thoughts, compared to a quick argument.

Staying out of these kinds of topics also means you’re less likely to run afoul of random individuals looking to start a fight, which leads into my next guideline.
•The Internet Is Not Your Friend

Social media galvanizes people.  It tends to give users a bit more courage when it comes to saying outlandish things, something I’ve fallen victim to myself many times.  It also leaves records, forms grudges, and can make you enemies you don’t even know you have.

Something I’ve seen happen on a recurring level recently is an old social media post being screenshotted and posted, likely with an accompany caption that is designed to incite shame.  Since screenshots tend to lack context (especially if they don’t capture an entire conversation, usually), they can easily be warped if the content is offensive, and modified entirely if not.  I tend to combat this by automatically deleting social media past a certain time period, though I’ve never had to put this to the test quite yet.

To summarize?  Just use common sense.  If you’re lucky enough to have unfiltered access to social media, you should know at this point what’s right and what’s wrong.  Social media in and of itself is a double edged sword; don’t cause any trouble, and you’ll have a great experience no matter what you use.

I want to take a second to talk about work ethic.

I am very smart.

I heard that a lot growing up. I would place in the high 90th percentiles in IQ tests. I could read at a college level by the 4th grade. I did AP classes all the way up to middle school. Things came to me very easily.


‘Gifted’ was the term.

I’m not telling you this to brag about it. Instead, I’m telling you this to show how it adversely affected me later in life.

From middle school all the way to high school graduation, I’d say that I ‘coasted’. I didn’t study too hard. I’d do papers towards the end of the deadline. I took the ACT, the most important test of my life, after studying for a whopping two hours. I did well on it, but I could’ve placed much higher if I had actually applied myself.

When I was 18, I decided to move to Philadelphia, across the country from Idaho, where I grew up. My family wanted to dissuade me from it; both because they wanted me to stay home, and also because it was a pretty bad idea in retrospect. I stubbornly refused most of their advice.

As a young adult, I was pretty arrogant about everything. I know better than you; why would I listen to you? It manifested itself pretty badly. I knew I could ‘coast’, and do just fine. Or so one thinks in their youthful hubris.

I feel things are pretty different nowadays. My travels have made me a bit wiser. My professional experiences, especially in wrestling, have given me perspective. I’ve been scores of people, people far more intelligent & talented than I, falter, stumble, even fail because of their arrogance.

The moral is easy. Intelligence can get you somewhere. Work ethic can get you even higher. It just takes time.

Just FYI.

I've just spent this morning trying to strike a balance in the PC era community, condemning extreme reactions to current events and trying to cease hostilities towards the mods.

I've literally tried to keep the peace, tried to help people settle down, to not die in this hill and to engage constructively regarding the relationship between the community, Era and the moderation team going forward. We have seen people actioned for posting in anger, for feeling that they're being mocked and marginalised by the moderation team and making stupid mistakes in their angry state.

And then you post this. Thanks.

So...

This is what I meant on Discord about having to mod just because of personalities.

Also, their post is the kind of didn’t-mean-to-be-rude that can make communities feel put-upon.

But also! Posters are consistently asked to forgive perceived slights, so...

Also! I have no clue of my standing in the PC gaming thread or Era generally, but I’ll put my hand up and volunteer to be a mod, if it’s needed.

:salute Selflessness to the max.

I don't know if it's reasonable to expect us to just watch 90% of the more active posters in this thread get banned and pretend as if nothing happened. The PC community here on Era has been methodically and systematically dismantled. Shouldn't we, as a community, have an official answer as to why this happened?

I'd urge you to consider the idea that you are not making people feel welcome, heard or respected everywhere else on this forum as part of the problem, which is the root cause for any "inexcusable" behavior and metacommentary you witness in this thread.

Also, consider that banning or driving off some of the most valuable members of the community might be a result of forum policy, and not exactly a good sign.

Go ahead and ban Durante too, you dipshits  :lol :lol :lol

Anyone mind giving a succint summary of the PC gaming thread drama?

Someone took a cheap shot at JaseC about era's 'villifying journalism' blanket policy
JaseC went "ehhhhhh, you know what... fuck this, I'm out".
Bunch of not-legally-allowed-to-call-themselves-steam-era poured one out for respected former moderator JaseC
not-respected current moderator jawmuncher threw a tantrum
people said "maybe if the mods didn't act like bitches we wouldn't clown on them"
Admins came in and started banning 'metacommentary' posts
BronsonLee is now peacing out too

Great gesture on Ubisoft's part, even if the total sum needed is way beyond that, it's good PR and a demonstration that they care about the historical stuff they use.

I wanna say that this mod attempt at recontextualizing pisses me off

https://www.resetera.com/threads/sony-cracks-down-on-sexually-explicit-content-in-games-article-states-that-it-refers-to-underage-characters-check-threadmarks.111820/

Oh gee this sounds a little bad on sony's part, maybe they're going too far

But wait the title has been edited

Sony Cracks Down on Sexually Explicit Content in Games (Article States That It Refers to Underage Characters: Check Threadmarks)



Oh it's fine, nothing to see here

Well lemme check that threadmark

Quote
Here OP. I will hook you up with some choice quotes from the article:

Quote
Sony officials said executives at the company have grown concerned that its global reputation could take a hit from sexually explicit content sold only in a few markets. One of their biggest concerns is software sold in the company’s home market of Japan, which traditionally has had more tolerance for near-nudity and images of young women who might appear underage.
Quote
Two factors last year combined to turn that unease into action, these Sony officials say. One was the rise of the #MeToo movement in the U.S., which pointed to the dangers of being associated with content that some might see as demeaning to women. The second was the emergence of channels on sites like YouTube and Amazon Inc.’s Twitch where gamers play in front of a camera and are watched by fans online. That means games meeting Japan’s laxer standards can get world-wide exposure.
Quote
In general, any company making a game for a platform like the PlayStation 4, Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox or Nintendo Co.’s Switch signs a contract with the platform maker governing royalties and other items. That gives the platform maker the ability to block games it doesn’t like.

Nintendo said it doesn't regulate sexual content beyond requiring game makers to obtain a rating from national bodies. It said its game systems allow parents to restrict content based on the rating. Microsoft declined to comment.
Quote
“You don’t know what they will say until you complete the work and submit it for review,” said the chief executive of a small game developer in Japan. “And if they are not happy, even if they allowed the same degree of sexuality a few days before, we need to take it back and ask our staff to make adjustments. That’s very costly.”
On another note:

Quote
The PlayStation 4 is the world’s most widely used videogame console, with more than 94 million units sold around the globe. About $11 billion in PlayStation 4 game software was sold in 2018, according to Sony
There is a lot more, but I figured this would highlight a good portion of it.

Apologist mod plucks out one single word from the article, from a sentence that isn't necessarily implied to be part of a statement by sony

Uses this one word to globally imply that the censorship measures in place are all for the sake of protecting the underage

Even though this fuckery has been going on for a couple years now with many examples across a wide spectrum

And the fact that 90% of games from Japan with underage characters are changed to be 18 in text, which would by definition no longer require any content changes to protect them
