GamingThread THQ Nordic teases two game announcements at E3 [READ STAFF POST]
Reason User banned (5 days): Trolling, dismissing valid criticisms with disingenuous comparisons, engaging in backseat moderation.
We need a solution to this to be honest. Can't we just make sure that there is a segment dedicated in the op of every THQN related post about the whole affair to inform those unaware, and at the same time let the people who want to talk about the games/don't care do so in the thread itself? This is supposed to be a dedicated gaming forum after all, and threads like these were after all partly what gave neogaf it's bad reputation as a hostile and unfriendly place, and isn't avoiding Gaf's mistakes one of era's major goals?

Other fighting game series like Smash, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct and Soul Calibur keep on getting more popular, yet it feels like nobody cares about Street Fighter anymore. It’s puzzling to me.

Reason User Banned (duration pending): dismissing concerns surrounding pedophilia
I don't claim to know everything about the AMA or 8chan, but I think "a known den of literal child pornography, in a way that makes it's extremely known that you know full well what 8chan is" carries with it a high burden of proof. Does 8chan put a banner on their homepage that says "pedophiles welcome here"? Or is this a case of some clueless schmuck in marketing who just figures "according to my kid's friends, it's some web site that's popular with a lot of our players"? Because my brief encounters with online marketing people tells me that they can be dense.

GamingThread Halo MCC development update
Reason User warned: Unnecessarily antagonistic attitude towards a fellow user
I'm pretty sure we were requesting it in 2014 and 2015, around the time you, personally, were dodging every topic this game came up in. Now you're back to bicker semantics about what a press release is. There's been too much hemming and hawing and obfuscation on this subject for me to commit to any "open conversation" posted on your website. Up to and including your patch announcement late last year. I'll believe it when I see the game running properly. And that doesn't mean matchmaking fixes, it means not falling through the floor and a myriad of other glitches you guys still avoid acknowledging in favor of blaming the prior iteration of the Xbox live architecture for this games other problems. Of course, even if fixed there's almost no chance of a large player base returning at this point so I'm pretty sure my dream of reliving old Halo is dead anyway. But I've still got the Xbox in the house so I guess it's always been mission accomplished for MS.

GamingThread Halo MCC development update
Reason User Warned: Drive-by Posting
Lol this is a thread title in 2018. Edit: also lol at warning people for raising valid points in a thread. Do you expect me to lay out exactly why it is lame that this is a thread title in 2018, yet again? It’s a topic that’s been rehashed for literally years at this point, and yet people are still “excited” about the “development” of a broken game that was sold for years and is only now being supposedly fixed in 2018. There. I think it’s a perfectly valid post to just briefly remind people that the whole premise of the thread is a little ridiculous.

I'm not a victim, you're just reading more into my comment than I wrote. I didn't mock anyone. I didn't suggest that any individual should be mocked. You assumed that I did and were wrong. I repeat, if you have a problem with the concept of my taking issue with what the author is writing while simultaneously not having any personal animus towards the author, that's your problem and not mine. I get that you WANT me to have written 'hur hur, fuck this guy, he should be made fun of,' because that'd be a real no brainer to dunk on. But I didn't say it.
