What’s your GAF user name again?

I can msg a mod on the discord channel to see if they can help. Just need your GAF username to show that you’re a long tine GAF user.

It’s ok, found it.

13 years on Gaf! I signed up there when I did have an isp email but that's now defunct as I closed that prior to moving to London 12yrs ago.

Cheers Flipsy. :up:

Some stats on the current state of both boards.

Quote:
These graphs contain data for the last three days, up to 30 minutes ago

Here we can see how many posts there are on ResetEra vs on GAF:

Here's the same data again, but more to show the trends on the two sites:
Image

Here's the ratio of posts on ResetEra vs GAF:
Image
There's about 10-20 times more posts on ResetEra compared to this place.

The only stat that's comparable is how many posts there are here compard to how many new members there are on ResetEra.
Image
Yup. There are more new members there than there are posts there.

I enjoy statistics, so I decided to create this. Figured it'd be worth the share.

I was on Gaf last night and the place feels like a ghost town. The time stamp from the latest post in the thread at the top page 1 and the one at the bottom were a few hours apart. It's never been like that since I've joined.

True :)

Anyway, I think GR is getting more posts than neo gaf because I just had a look at the first page on games discussion, and damn, you can see the last post on the bottom of the page was made at 7:55am AEDT.

Unfortunately all the elitist and far leftist wankers have all migrated to the new site, so eerily similar posts and threads that were in neogaf are appearing on resetera. Really over that elitist bullshit to be brutally honest. Apart from here of course, anyone else know of a great place for VG discussion?

I don't mind ResetEra, I post in a few threads (and taking part in Secret Santa again this year) but otherwise just lurking.

I had a quick look the other day and there was a typical groupthink thread on how much they hate Rick and Morty. Not because of the writing, plot, animation or the humor, but because of how they view the fan base.

Like I asked before: what prevents resetera becoming a dictatorship like the previous version? Nothing. So the place may as well just be renamed Neogaf becasue the same people that were at the old place will just migrate to the new one to follow all the free people. Work their way up to the ladder of power and then ban opinions they don't like to hear.

The latest Thor movie has the perfect message on this: the land you are settled on really isn't that important. (if it gets wrecked then you can rebuild it again) It's the free people. And if the bad guys follow you to the new place you just repeat all the same old problems again and you go back to square one. This is why people need to fight for their rights not just run because like Agent Smith these guys can't live without the host to feed on. Even the Hobbits had the high hedge to keep baddies out and they are the most peacful race in Middle Earth. In the old days these guys would just die from starvation and darwinian evolution wold clean up the society by letting them destroy themselves while those with values and principles would continue on stronger when the bad guy died off and the land would revert back to being peaceful. But someone powerful and influential protects these guys like Saruman in Lord of the Rings protecting the orcs and evil humans and then commanding and directing them as a weapon to fulfill an evil agenda.

But when you try to talk to people on boards about this they think you are tin foil conspiracy nut even though they (infiltraters and hijackers) show they are fake by their own videos. If you don't want to fight them that is fine. But at least wake as many people up to their schemes so people know to avoid interacting with them and supporting them. They want to hijack gaming culture with own 'nerd culture' and then use that group of 'nerd culture' to act as a vehicle to promote SJW and feminist policy in government and business and change society so that people are pro-feminist/left/SJW in the future.

Its not a game, they are not playing around. They want to hijack influential positions of authority much like Lannisters in Game of Thrones. Ok guys? The right wing tried to police game culture with the censorship of mortal kombat and light gun games and threatening to ban stuff. The left want to promote LGBTQ, anti-gun, anti patriarchy stuff through 'nerd culture' whatever the fuck they think gamers are. We are not NERDS. :lol: Some of us work out at the gym and run around and play sport and do outdoor activities. They want to project their own insecurities on the whole gamefan community and then use it to see if they can bring change to society. It's not going to work. Gaming is not a subculture anymore. It's MAINSTREAM. So they can't hijack it at this point. Maybe the Dungeons and Dragon community or the Furry community but not gaming in general.

It is sort of like how in the old days of computers when they were really hard to use because you had to type in all your comands to the screen from a keyboard to do anything, you actually needed to know something about computers just to be able to use them. THEY were the nerds because the 70s style computer geek didn't have GUI interfaces and needed to remember a bunch of commands before you could get anything done on a computer and the computer was not an everday household appliance.

But as time went on, everyone can use computers (easy to use with touchscreens and interfaces that aren't cryptic like the old days) so you are no longer a nerd for using computers. People of all types use it everyday and its not an option to have one these days. Same deal with gaming. It is mainstream and not the domain of the socially awkard guy who has BO and wears thick glasses and has no fashion sense and doesn't get out and socialise because he is too busy watching sci fi animes from his tiny anime club.

Yes The neckbeards are a part of gaming community, but not all gamers are neckbeards anymore. Just as not all computers are for geeks but all geeks tend to gravitate towards computing because tech interests them outside of work. They hope to place females who are pro-feminist into positions of authority within tech with the intention of thought policing men and then like the right wing relgiious moral authority who ban books like harry potter or rock and roll or dungeons and dragons from their community, see if they can ban masculinity in the game scene. That is like trying to tell comedians you can't make fun of people since a joke could offend one guy in the audience who didn't like being made fun of. Comedians need to poke fun at others to be funny or they defeat the purpose of being a comedian and making people laugh.

You can't take masculinty from gaming because the activity like sports requires testosterone to be competitive. Once these idiots realise that, then they will see the futility of their hijack attempts which is to feminise gamers into being being a pussy. That's like letting your mother tell you what porn you should be allowed to watch as an adult or police the books you read or what you can wear(think of the control freak mother in the sitcom 'Everyone Loves Raymon') heh. You won't let some third party control what you fap to or what violent sport you like watching. You will say fuck you and give them the finger. And that's what we have to do on a daily basis to get it through their heads that trying to change us is impossible. We are the juggernaut bitch. Go change YOURSELF to be more like us. Not the other way around! lol Make your own kids effeminite if you wish but don't expect us to follow you. You have all the same freedoms that we have but it is when you try to boss us around and think you can control us that we have issues. The only option is shun them completely and drain them of resources. (ie don't support any game they work on or hang out with their circles so they end up losing energy)

Related:
Weird parents killing masculinity in little boys. (could this be related to why they are placing strong females in videogames and ignoring tough guys who act as role models for little boys which gives them an edge in the workforce due to men being naturally competitive? You decide if we are the tin foiler or if there is real scheming here)


My guess is that the reason they do this is to handicap boys growing up so that they can't compete against girls/women in the workforce so that they can bring 'artificial equality'. They know that men are the naturally creative, talented, and competitive ones and women are the naturally nurturing and caring ones, so by kiling masculinity in boys they think they can bring a utopia through brainwashing people into believing in something that simply is not true. It's a form of witchcraft and is going to cause violence in future when the kids grow up realising their own parents were abusing them and trying to push their own crazy belief on them by messing with their heads.(similar to scientology cult or a victim in a group that bullies the new recruit to obtain control over them and restrict them moving up higher in the rank) Boys do not have wombs therefore they are not women. Girls do not have testicles therfore they lack balls to make them hunter gather role which is a skill needed to survive in nature. By going aginst nature they are surpressing the boy's gifts to create, think critically and logically and deliberately trying to make them weak mentally. But since the boy will grow up expecting to have children, they will realise that they can't give birth to a child and go crazy believing they were girls which is what their parents told them. Science will clash with parents belief. And the kid will violently oppose the parent who surpressed the nature in them. If feminists didn't have th government as their sugar daddy they would have died out due to lack of being able to reason and see reality for what it is and that would be it. But since governments encourage this crazy behavior they are artificially being made weak and dependent to give politicians an excuse to have a job and get the votes of the welfare dependent boys. This is very bad: it's like removing security on computer which will be protected against harmful viruses or disarming your military of weapons. Trying to weaken them to make them lose independent control over their life will basically keep them dependent on you like a drug seller hooking a drug addict on a drug and profiting from that abusive control over the addict.

Yep. The more things change, the more they stay the same. It’s just neogaf all over again.

I got banned from resetera for saying Carrie Fisher died on purpose.it was supposed to be for a week but they never lifted the ban. To be honest, I wish I'd said something WAY more offensive though.

The Gaf Steam group was closed down too. Bet Gaf is worth fuck all now given that apparently they were offered more than $15million for it not too long ago.

People can say what they like about the place and the members but it was a great place for news.
