Many posters have complained of no longer having a voice in these threads because certain posters, including thread regulars, have replied in a hostile or condescending manner. This needs to stop. Please keep the following advice in mind when participating in these threads, regardless of how long you've been part of this community. Failure to do so could result in action being taken.

GamingThread "I left Insomniac Games because of how they treat women" Ex-Employee speaks out
Red Text When threads like these about serious allegations against publishers and developers are constantly getting derailed by arguments over whether threads about games should be banned here or not, to the point where the topic in the OP itself is virtually ignored, then there's a problem.

This kind of talk is insulting to our women posters and fosters an unwelcoming environment all around. Any further posts dismissing the sexism in the game will be met with strict moderation.

Red Text This thread is about the allegations that have been made, the victims and their experiences. This is not a thread for arguing about what a single poster's job title and responsibilities are. The discussion has derailed to the point where it is distracting from the very serious subject of the allegations and work culture at Insomniac. Please get back on topic and avoid further derails. Further derailment will be moderated.

EtcetEraThread Racist Karen hits a woman at a store, then starts acting like a victim by weaponizing racism by fake crying & throwing a tantrum. (See Staff Post)
Red Text There is nothing noble or helpful about hijacking a conversation regarding racist acts of violence by attributing the perpetrator's actions to mental illness. No one on Earth, not even psychiatric professionals, is capable of diagnosing a mental disorder from a single outburst caught on film. The constant attempts to do so do nothing but stigmatize the mentally ill, and ultimately, all this serves to do is to move sympathy away from the victim of racism to the perpetrator of it and is, in itself, a form a white supremacy. The simplest answer for Elphick's behavior, and other Karens who rage about minor inconveniences and direct their rage towards minorities and their allies, is that she as a white woman has been conditioned by society to behave in this way in order to achieve her goals. Supremacist socialization is not a mental health disorder. We will be going through all reports and posts; anyone who has already or continues to push this narrative without evidence of Elphick's medical history will be banned.

Having said that no trans person, bigot or otherwise, deserves to have bigotry hurled at them. Given that there is nothing further here to discuss this thread has been closed to further replies.

GamingThread Nintendo Switch (OLED model) - Announcement Trailer - Releasing on October 8 (UPDATE: Nintendo confirms no spec upgrade)
Red Text Because it's become a distraction, we want to address the earlier staff post about insiders; the concern was that certain callouts were feeding a frenzy beyond the site and could lead to harassment. There weren't a lot of staff available when it was made, and the wording of the post was too broad. Nobody was banned following the post and the intention wasn't to say that "insiders" should be beyond criticism, so this was a mistake in communication. This was done with good intentions but was not handled by staff who usually deal with "insider posting" and wasn't consistent with our usual approach.

GamingThread CDPR is a transphobic company. It's time we stop making excuses for them.
Red Text This thread is absolutely NOT for discussion about CyberPunk 2077 gameplay impressions, hardware issues, or anything else like that. The thread title nor the OP has anything to do with those things, as you can obviously tell this thread is about CDPR's history of transphobia. Anyone using this thread to talk about CP 2077's gameplay will eat a hefty ban, this is absolutely the wrong thread for it. The CyberPunk 2077 thread was locked for a SINGLE DAY to honor a commitment about locking the OT in honor of trans day of remembrance, which fell the day after it's original release date. It will be reopened tomorrow. You can last one day without a thread about the game.

Red Text I cannot believe this needs to be said, but legitimate reporting is hard. It takes time, sometimes weeks, months, or even years to get the interviews and information needed to publish a story. It isn't a process that takes 20 minutes and a handful of phone calls. Journalists don't sit on huge stories until the right time, they put them out when they have the information. Especially at legitimate outlets with a reputation for trustworthiness.
