ResetEra sold for $4.5m. Nothing goes to the mods and staff.

Isn't Rllmuk a let's-all-leave-in-a-huff spin off from the old Edge forums?

 

I've always thought of it as us all going to crash at Rob's house after the landlord first closed, and then closed down his pub.

The Off Topic bit over there is a nightmare, they've got a rule where you get banned for disagreeing with the topics viewpoint, so the only thing you can add to the topics is even more strident agreement, resulting in everything quickly becoming absurdly angry.

 

Even a simple topic on a parking infraction just devolves into ridiculous hot takes because no one can ever go "aren't you being a bit daft about this?" or "I think you might be in the wrong here".

They also lost a lot of posters from some minority communities (Asian, Muslim andTrans) because of how awful the moderation was regarding sensitive topics related to them.

 

I don't know enough about what Asian or Muslim posters have faced in terms of moderation to comment about why those members might have left, but I'm surprised at what you say regarding trans posters tbh. Era seems 100% pro-trans to the point where the mods ban anyone who even posts a debating point on the subject, let alone says anything against the prevailing wisdom in trans-focused threads. Was there anything in particular that caused some to leave?

The admin/mod team over there seem utterly unable to deal with anything. Small, medium or large. It all gets hit with a massive hammer and causes entire groups to up sticks and leave. The thread where the sales community left is a complete shitshow.

😂 Totally normal behaviour.

 

I remember asking why so many members of ResetEra had automatically judged Joe Biden guilty of rape, after the rather flimsy allegation by Tara Reade. Banned! Methinks that history has declared me the winner of this one.

Turned out he probably should have been denutted as he was subsequently arrested for child porn offences.

 

I was an active GAF user at that time. Watching new threads being created from members asking what was going so fast mods could't keep up with locking/deleting them quick enough was hilarious. Same when Evilore was outed as a rapey sex pest.

Edge told us it was just popping down the shops for a pack of cigarettes, it'll be back any moment now.

 

I'm so old now I've forgotten why I came here in the first place, and where I was before that.

Haha, those MOBA guys should have done a bit of research before splashing 4.5 million on that place, it's already in the process of splintering and falling apart and this will finish it off. Shame, it started with good ideals but it's just such a hellhole now. I've joined the new Nintendo focused offshoot https://famiboards.com/ and it's much nicer, for now at least...

I’m in my 5th account I think.

Every time I read resetera it seems to be full of people with no perspective going into hysterics about stupid shite. It can be sort of entertaining in short bursts, like someone falling off a skateboard, but I dunno who can be bothered posting somewhere like that.

 

 

Anyway, back to rllmuk

Resetera is pretty awful to read. So many threads feel like some kind of Mexican stand off where people are just looking for an excuse to jump on people. Moderation makes some really bizarre calls and decisions. Not sure why people would want to engage in that kind of environment, really.

Let's meet RLLMUK.

 

We have about 2-5 posters who go into hysterics whenever there's a big hyped release and then some outlet gives a horrifyingly low score like it an 8 out of 10. But we all know who they are and mock them. At Resetera there's hundreds of the buggers and its the entire thread.
