There is a positive from all this. Instead of people on Reeee calling him a sell out (which is is and surely laughing all the ay to the bank), they should learn from it.The more I think about it, the funnier it gets...
Cerium was probably like: "Ah, goddamnit! I just can't take these assholes anymore !!!"
Well if i remember correctly EviLore once mentioned that it was really weird that the Resetera site was pretty much ready to launch when the accusations happened...almost as if the people behind it knew whats was coming.
It was all grifting from the start. Now watch the corporation get rid of the problematic mods so they can promote games.
EviLore is a legend in the eyes of those who live in the console field. That's why he has to handle this forum himself. How and where he makes it, well that's up to him. Now go! Let the legend grow bigger than life.I am just here to appreciate the fact that EviLore could have gotten this money (or more) years ago yet chose not to- to keep GAF what it was/is. What a legend!
On the other hand resetera people seem to have gotten rich by kinda usurping what he built, or at least that's how it seems to me a little.
Looks like Cerium is using the old Charity spiels. Not doing it for financial gain. All about the people.
Slayven better hope they don’t make mods interview to keep their jobs .. I heard a writing test is part of the interviewThe funnist shit is Slayven and Nepenthe "volunteering" for The White Man. Those people are insane and their hate for white people is disgusting and palpable, and of course completely accepted on Era. Instan ban if you question it.
They should look up their new "employer". He looks like everything they hate, lmao.
Don’t worry too much. If they come back here, they will be treated like everyone else. I’d they can’t discuss like an adult, they will be dealt with accordingly.
And seeing how they write/post over there, you can get a good idea of what would end up happening.
Well that’s all about to change, if they actually want growth potential. Ya, hate to see it /sDo you have any idea how difficult it is to create an account there? It took me a week, multiple rejected attempts, to finally get in. They have trust issues. Not sure why I went through all this trouble, I've posted 4 or 5 times since joining 6 months ago.
He isn’t. He is just a rich kid who can pay others to think for him.
To be fair, it wouldn’t take too long to fire up a docker container on a droplet or vps somewhere, and then point a cheesy domain at it. The hard part would actually be all the graphics design/theming and creating all the roles and permissions and shit. In terms of overall forum structure, Cerium and his merry band of thieves would have just used GAF as a template.
If being a mod was damaging to their psyche, they were doing something very, very wrong.
It was no secret that EviLore had a high 7 figure (at minimum) offer and refused to sell. This was known around the time it happened a decade or so ago. Cerium is a trust fund baby, living off daddy and connections, he has all the time in the world to take advantage of situations.
That's not a very fair assessment. Aeana did a lot of work good work for the community here back in the day and she got a lot of shit, on and off the forum, from a lot of awful people for pretty much nothing. There was a lot of trash people doing trash things then. It would definitely affect anyone at the volume some of them got it. Aeana didn't deserve any of that.
In truth there's a lot of juicy details which personally I don't have time to even have kept up with but I am glad a lot of it is coming to light to show that The forum and question is not some hollowed ground that some people try to make it out to be. In hindsight it's all becoming clear especially now with the sale and a very opportunistic person capitalizing.This thread is so weird.
It’s business deal. Whats so argumentative about this, why is everyone jerking each other off.
It's crazy to see how many people are banned there and actually they seeing myself in my ever optimist idiocy taking part in that stupidity. Unfortunately my request for account deletion didn't go through because I was banned for something stupidly petty.Bboy AJ remember this thread?
NeoGAF was the most popular video game forum. I suspect that era is over now. One of my concerns, and many, many other members' concerns with that forum is how the owner financially managed it. It became user hostile with viglinks, intrusive ads, and hijack your browser mobile ads. More...www.resetera.com
