Red Text Hello everyone. We just wanted to comment officially on the removal of certain information: It's been brought to our attention that proprietary NPD data has been posted in these threads and that it's been proliferating widely in a way that is a growing problem for everyone involved.

AnnouncementsThread Introducing GiftBot! Want to run a giveaway on ResetEra? GiftBot is our gift to you! (on hiatus)
Red Text Giftbot is currently on hiatus until he can be ported to the new software platform. He will return!
One of the most frequent requests we've received since launch has been for a forum bot that members can use to run giveaways safely and efficiently. You asked for it, and our team has been working hard to deliver. At last we're ready to show some results: Introducing ! To celebrate this launch we're holding our own inaugural giveaways with cool prizes. If you run into any bugs please contact . A true labor of love, GiftBot is being developed entirely in-house by our sleepless tech team. Coding GiftBot from scratch will allow us to fully customize and tailor its features over time to better respond to the needs of the community. The design plan was drawn up in close collaboration with moderators from SteamEra, a community that knows its way around giveaways like no other. GiftBot is a fully automated forum feature that takes the delicate work of running a giveaway safely out of human hands. The mechanical spin of its avatar is the only motion it will ever know (note: sorry, organics on ResetEra are still not allowed animated avatars). Like the that so crucially facilitated our first annual GOTY vote, GiftBot is a friendly and unarmed automation with no moderator functions. We're launching GiftBot with basic functionality that includes a First-to-Claim mode and a 24 Hour Raffle. Over time we intend to add many more features and options for users to customize how they want their giveaways to be run. By developing GiftBot ourselves, we've ensured that the sky is the limit! We are committed to the long term expansion and refinement of GiftBot as a service for the community. While GiftBot is meant to be a fun way for users to interact with their fellow ResetEra members, our lawyers have advised us to make a few things clear! For Givers: ResetEra, LLC is not responsible for any keys to submitted to GiftBot. Only submit keys to GiftBot that you are absolutely sure you want to give away or no longer want to use. For Receivers: GiftBot has no way to verify the validity of a key prior to giving it away. If you receive an invalid key from GiftBot, you have no recourse against either ResetEra, LLC or against the user who sponsored the giveaway (the "Giver"), though the Giver may offer you a replacement key if they so choose. Finally, neither ResetEra, LLC nor the Giver will provide technical support for the keys. If you have an issue with a key you receive through GiftBot, your only recourse is to contact the platform holder through which the key was to be redeemed for support. For Everyone: ResetEra, LLC makes no guarantee that GiftBot will be available at certain times or at any time. The services provided through GiftBot may be terminated at anytime and without notice. GiftBot is solely for the fun and amusement of ResetEra Members ("Members"), and ResetEra, LLC does not charge a cost to participate in GiftBot giveaways. However, GiftBot is only available to Members with an active account; if a Member's account is banned, either temporarily or permanently, then that Member will be unable to participate in GiftBot giveaways for the duration of their ban.

AnnouncementsThread ResetEra 2.0 New Features Guide
Red Text This is what we will use when we need to get your attention.
This is an updated list from our original announcement thread, highlighting some of our favorite new features in ResetEra 2.0. Believe it or not, this list might still not be complete! There are features here that you have been demanding for a long time, and features you might never have even imagined. We hope that you will enjoy them as much as we do. This is a feature that you've been asking for almost since the launch of the forum, and we're finally delighted to provide it. ResetEra 2.0 will allow you to easily ignore any thread by clicking the Ignore button in the top right corner. That thread will then disappear from your thread list. If you accidentally ignore a thread or otherwise want to remove a thread from your ignore list, don't worry! Simply navigate to the bottom of the thread list and click "Show ignored content" to reveal the threads you've ignored. The long conflict between supporters of 50 posts per page and 100 posts per page is officially over. No longer will you be restricted to such a limited, binary choice. With ResetEra 2.0 we are now introducing the option to set any custom value you want between 50 and 100 posts / threads per page. Simply check your account preferences and enter whatever number you desire. Do you want to have 75 posts per page? There's nothing stopping you now! 62 threads per page? Why not! 51 threads per page and 83 posts per page? You do you! Please note that we're leaving the default untouched at 50 posts per page and 40 threads per page. Have you ever had a nice post written up, only to accidentally navigate away from the page, wiping away all your hard work? If so then this one is for you: ResetEra 2.0 includes a draft feature in the message editor allowing you to save your work for later. To use this feature simply click the floppy disk icon and select "Save draft" to make sure your work is protected. If you want to delete a draft simply select "Delete draft" from the same dropdown and the reply box will be empty when you next reload the page. At the bottom of every thread (beneath the reply box) you will now be able to peruse a list of threads covering similar topics, making it easier to discover other content that might be of interest to you. Additionally, when creating a new thread, you will be shown a list of similar threads that already exist. This should help members avoid posting duplicate threads for news or topics that have already been covered. Here is a feature that just seems obvious in hindsight. Easily available via top navigation or sidebar navigation, the Trending page presents an automated selection of the hottest threads across all of ResetEra 2.0 at any given moment in time. If you pop open the right sidebar on the Trending page, you will find a convenient list of filters for each forum section to help you sort through and discover the content that interests you the most. Should Trending prove to be popular we may find ways in the future to expand and improve this feature further. Large, fast moving threads are often difficult to navigate and keep up with. Great posts can get lost in the shuffle, important updates can be missed, and Staff Posts can be difficult to find and refer to unless the post number is edited into the title. Threadmarks empowers thread creators with the ability to curate their own threads by selecting posts to be added to an index that will appear at the top of the thread. Thread creators will be able to sort Threadmarks into two categories: The default Threadmarks category (intended for updates) and a Highlights category (for other great or notable posts in the thread). A third category, Staff Posts, is available to staff only and will be used whenever there is a risk of a Staff Post going unnoticed. When entering a large thread, be sure to check first whether the Staff Posts index is present at the top! Not to be confused with Threadmarks, Bookmarks allows you to save any individual posts and threads that you might want to come back to in the future. If you come across content that is particularly helpful, insightful or entertaining, you can now save that post or thread directly to your forum account. These Bookmarks become instantly available in a convenient drop down tab. Many of you have asked for more embed support for popular services like Vimeo. We've gone even further: ResetEra 2.0 will support embeds for 24 different services including podcasts, audio, crowdfunding, and more. You can check out the full list of supported embeds below. There should be something for everyone! This is a particularly fun feature which we're very pleased to be able to offer. When ResetEra 2.0 goes live and the migration is complete, members will be able to upload cover images to personalize their profile pages. Thread creators will also be able to upload and select covers for individual threads as well! These uploads have a recommended resolution of at least 600x1000 and will be limited to 250kb (easily achieved with reasonable jpg compression).Covers will be moderated like any other images or avatars. Please note that we will be monitoring the effect of this feature on site performance, and may make future adjustments as necessary. That's right, red text no longer has to be reserved for mods! From now on official communications (except mod edits) will be made using Staff Post tags. Not only does this free up red text for members, it's also impossible to accidentally misuse. It is theoretically possible for members to deliberately abuse these: This was necessary to make sure that staff posts remain quotable. However, as with red text before, any attempt to impersonate a moderator with these tags will be met with a long ban. Limitations with the new core software required us to rework how gender is displayed. While this was tricky to do, it allowed us to make another change in the process. We were able to implement the option for users to set their gender as non-binary! We've had multiple requests for this feature since launch, and we're very pleased that we were able to provide it.

Red Text To clarify why images were removed from the OP and one other post: We received a DMCA takedown notice from Capcom regarding the images in two specific posts. It is generally our policy to comply with legitimate DMCA requests. We do not go out of our way to hunt for similar material or posts that are not included in a DMCA notice.All of this is very routine and entirely normal. Hope that clears things up!

AnnouncementsThread Introducing ResetEra 2.0! Update: Y'all killed our beta server, beta delayed until unkilled
Red Text Hi everyone, wow, we're blown away by the response. You guys are the best, we weren't expecting this kind of love. Unfortunately, you guys are so great that you crashed our beta server within minutes of launch! It looks like we're going to need a little more time to get things up and running again. We will have an update for you by early next week! If people still find ways to break rules or abuse features available on the beta site, their live accounts will be banned. If this becomes a recurring problem those features may be disabled on the beta! Let's try to have nice things.
We've been talking for a while now about our plans to create a site design that would be worthy of the title 2.0. The time has come to show you everything that entails. In the past, site development was all handled internally. In order to meet our ambitious goals and assist the technical team, professional forum developers were contracted to help with every aspect of this project. While this approach ruled out any design by committee, the result is a forum with a combination of features and flourishes found nowhere else on the internet. First things first: ResetEra 2.0 has been built upon next generation forum software in Xenforo 2.0. The current site designs were built upon the older Xenforo 1.5 for (at the time) greater stability and compatibility with a number of third party plugins which have been essential for managing a community of this size. A year later Xenforo 2.0 has matured as a platform and is now fully compatible with our needs. This upgrade needs to happen in order to ensure that the base software will continue to receive support, and it brings with it a number of quality of life improvements. Because this is a generational leap, none of the existing themes we have developed so far will be compatible with the new software. This includes both LightEra/DarkEra as well as DayEra/NightEra. Many of you are attached to the old themes, but simply bringing those over was not possible. As such, we've incorporated the lessons we've learned from those themes and the feedback you've offered and put it all into something truly ambitious. Sometimes it's easier to show rather than tell. Please watch the following videos for your first introduction to ResetEra 2.0.The team aimed to create something highly responsive and functional, wrapped up in a design that looks like a product of 2018. The left sidebar offers a host of navigation options. The right sidebar offers information about the board and a list of the latest threads. Both are hidden by default and can be shown or hidden again at your whim. If your screen resolution is large enough, an option to expand the site to fit the full width is available in the bottom left corner.The ability to navigate straight from the thread list to the original post (back arrow) last post (forward arrow) and first unread post (thread title) has been retained from the DayEra/NightEra designs. As per your feedback, the dark theme boasts muted purples inspired by the DarkEra legacy theme. Going from light theme to dark theme and vice versa is now as simple as clicking a switch. Mobile view was a big emphasis during development. A lot of effort went into making sure that browsing on mobile offers feature parity with desktop. This is the first time that we have been able to display view count and reply count on the mobile thread list, and the first time we've been able to represent both the thread creator (via avatar) and the latest poster. A full accounting of every new feature in ResetEra 2.0 would take forever. There will be any number of cool things that you'll discover yourselves when you get your hands on it. Some of these are inherent to the Xenforo 2.0 platform, some are the product of third party plugins, and some have been uniquely customized for us and no one else. We wanted to highlight some of our favorite new features that we think you will enjoy. This is a feature that you've been asking for almost since the launch of the forum, and we're finally delighted to provide it. ResetEra 2.0 will allow you to easily ignore any thread by clicking the Ignore button in the top right corner. That thread will then disappear from your thread list. If you accidentally ignore a thread or otherwise want to remove a thread from your ignore list, don't worry! Simply navigate to the bottom of the thread list and click "Show ignored content" to reveal the threads you've ignored. The long conflict between supporters of 50 posts per page and 100 posts per page is officially over. No longer will you be restricted to such a limited, binary choice. With ResetEra 2.0 we are now introducing the option to set any custom value you want between 50 and 100 posts / threads per page.

See the following video for a demonstration.Covers will be moderated like any other images or avatars. Please note that we will be monitoring the effect of this feature on site performance, and may make future adjustments as necessary. We know we've given you a lot to digest already! There will also undoubtedly be bugs and other issues that we have not yet detected ourselves. Therefore, starting immediately, we are opening up our beta site to any of our registered members who had accounts in good standing on October 2 (when the database was migrated). If that does not describe you then unfortunately you are out of luck. Because we cannot commit to moderating two forums at once, the beta website has had posting and other features disabled and is in read-only mode. We hope that you'll enjoy exploring the new design and its options, browsing experience, and wealth of available features. In order to access the beta, please sign in with your usual ResetEra credentials. You may then have to manually select either the "Resetera" or "Resetera Dark" theme options from the style chooser in the bottom left. Please report any bugs you find in this thread, and make sure to read before you offer feedback. We expect to run this beta for about a week before addressing final issues and preparing for launch. We've put all of our hearts and months of our lives into this project. We hope that you enjoy it! That's right! ResetEra 2.0 will boast full Unicode support, and with it, emojis. Please note that emojis are not to be confused with smilies, so these won't be available in the post editor. You can simply place them using your OS level emoji keyboard. We place this great power in your hands and expect you'll use it responsibly.

AnnouncementsThread General FAQ
Red Text Please note that the color red is exclusively reserved for Moderators and Administrators when they are posting in an official capacity.
Welcome to ResetEra, a place for video game enthusiasts, industry members and press to come together and discuss their favorite hobby. Our goal is to create an inviting bonfire that inspires people to have passionate discussions, build bonds with different kinds of people from all over the world, and in general have a good time in a moderated environment. We want ResetEra to be the central hub for people who love video games and everything surrounding them. We put a lot of value in being fair, transparent, and reasonable with our moderation. We want you to feel safe without feeling oppressed. This document will outline some of the policies and guidelines that we’ve been working on to make ResetEra a great forum for discussion. Before you begin, please read this to understand the values behind our founding and how they inform everything that we do. Please keep in mind that while we’ve put great effort into making this guide as detailed and specific as we can, it is not possible to foresee or enumerate every behavior that might require moderation. To participate, you'll need to register with your email address. Please understand that only non-disposable email accounts are permitted in order to grow a manageable and transparent community and also to keep the amount of potential spam accounts as low as possible. During the application process, you will be required to accept our User Agreement which sets forth ResetEra‘s Terms of Service. You may review both the and our by clicking their respective links. After you've successfully registered your account on ResetEra, the activation process begins. This means that the ResetEra staff will manually check your registration. Once approved, you'll be ready to actively participate in discussions. Account approval will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please note that the activation process is being done manually, and that it can take some time until your account is activated. Please refrain from contacting staff members about the approval process for your account outside of the forum. If you have any questions concerning the status of your approval, please contact us only at . Note that due to the large volume of emails we receive and variances in staff availability, we may not be able to reply to your email immediately. We appreciate your patience throughout this process. After your account is approved, you will begin as a Junior Member. This is your chance to settle in, get a feel for the forum, and demonstrate your capacity for civil discourse. Moderation may be stricter during this period, but to discourage elitism there will be no public indication of Junior Member status. Junior Members are not able to create new threads. In order to move from being a Junior Member to a full Member, two conditions must be met: (1) 90 days must have passed since your account was approved and (2) you must have made at least 300 posts. Once these two conditions are met, your account will automatically be upgraded to Member status. Each user is allowed only one account. If you are found to have created multiple accounts out of benign misunderstanding, you will be asked to pick one and the others will be closed. If you are found to have created multiple accounts in bad faith, such as for ban evasion or trolling, all of your accounts will be subject to an automatic permanent ban. For members working in the press or the entertainment industries, we offer “verified accounts.“ A verified account is identifiable by a 'Verified' icon in your profile. While we understand that anonymity may be desirable for myriad reasons, we would like to encourage you to verify yourself so that you may better engage with our audience of ResetEra users. You can check out our for more information on this program, including how to get verified yourself. ResetEra as a forum and as a community values inclusivity and seeks to provide a welcoming space for all members to come together to discuss video games and more. ResetEra does not tolerate behavior or language that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise maliciously exclusionary with regard to identity. Our mission is to foster an environment that brings people together in open dialogue. We might not see each other face to face, but behind each username is another human being who may have a different background. Accordingly, the Cardinal Rule for using ResetEra’s website and services is to be mindful of the above and to enter dialogue in good faith. The ResetEra sets forth a non-exclusive list of prohibited activities. ResetEra reserves the exclusive right to use its discretion in taking any action against a user who violates the User Agreement, from account suspension (temporary banning) to account termination (permanent banning).Please be respectful and polite when posting in threads. This includes when addressing other users and when posting about the topic at hand. You can post in a thread without making it personal or insulting other users. Impolite posting and using improper grammar and spelling is frowned upon here. Consistently low quality posts can lead to a ban. We presently allow posters access to a variety of text options including size, color, and font. Please do not abuse these to make obnoxious or visually distracting replies. Misusing red text will result in a warning. As a ResetEra user, it is important to understand that video games are being created by different developers working with different budgets and technology on different systems for different publishers who try to strike a lucrative balance between business and art. Of course, it is frustrating that a highly anticipated project turns out to be under your expectations, but remember that there are actual people working on these games that have a life outside of video games and are passionate about what they do. Claiming that an entire studio is "lazy" is not only disrespectful but also very naive and uninformed. If we are lucky we get to learn about the stories behind these products, but other than that it helps to understand that this is an industry that is fueled by money, sweat and passion. No matter how disappointed you are, please try to understand people from the industry and don't pin anybody down on one project that didn't go as you wished. The same goes for people who are covering the video games industry: vilifying an entire media outlet for any reason is typically unhelpful. It is crucial to understand that these people share a similar high passion for this hobby as you do and try their best to do their jobs. These outlets are not monoliths but groups of people that keep changing over the years. None of them are perfect and while reasoned discussion is always welcome, try to refrain from dismissing a website or magazine for petty reasons. Honest dissent and debate is generally welcome. However, we do not welcome disingenuous arguments, deliberately ignoring or refusing to acknowledge counterarguments, or arguing for no reason than to upset other members. If your contributions to a discussion are clearly unproductive or lead in circles, it’s time to stop. There is no prize for being the first person to comment on something. Instead of reading headlines, please take your time to read the snippets and the content in question. Don't let your own laziness potentially make you look like a fool. Do not come into a thread, write something purposefully provocative, and bail out. We'd suggest either making a solid argument or ignoring a thread altogether if you have nothing to contribute. We would also like to remind users not to derail threads and post about topics which are not related to the content posted in the OP. Everybody has their platforms and genres of preference and it's completely fine if somebody doesn't share a similar taste as you. Don't be an annoying megaphone for multi-billion dollar corporations that only care about you buying their products first and foremost. Don't be bitter about multi-platform announcements. Don't be bitter if a system you like sells less than the system you don't like. Every time here is a new and popular third party game, people often 'beg' for ports of that game for their favorite hardware by either derailing threads or creating new threads. It’s not always easy to determine where the line is between harmless speculation and port begging, but generally port begging refers to comments that are disruptive to an existing discussion, fuel for console wars, or completely without substantive basis. Please do not make such posts or threads. If no platforms are announced, speculation about the platforms generally does not qualify as port begging. It is fine to see a thread about a subject that you absolutely don't care about and to not post in it. It's absolutely fine to let people celebrate tiny successes without dropping a snarky comment between posts. We are not asking of you to not be critical, but to be aware that your opinion is just one among many and not necessary for every single thread. Please note that the forum has an ignore feature that you can use if you do not want to see a certain user’s posts. From time to time it is necessary to step away for a few minutes or hours if a discussion you participate in gets too heated or you feel like you can't contribute anymore. Keep taking care of yourself and don't lose yourself between dozens of posts and threads. It is also helpful to remember that spending too much time on ResetEra alone can create a bubble in your mind about what gaming is and what it isn't. Be aware that there is a world outside of it. Posting rumors and leaks from external websites is allowed but we ask users to use common sense when doing so. Do not post rumors and leaks from random blogs with no track record. If you believe the rumor you’re reading couldn’t possibly be true then it is best not to post it here. If you wish to post a leak or rumor yourself on ResetEra you should contact an Administrator so that we can review the information first. Please note that we will not officially endorse leaks posted on the forum and users who knowingly post incorrect information will be banned.Many posters like to experience entertainment without knowing what to expect from it. This is something that everyone should strive to accommodate. For example if you are in a thread about a recently released game and want to discuss information that could only have been acquired by playing it, please hide that information behind tags. Do not include such spoilers in thread titles. Spoiler sensitivity, however, cannot be allowed to stifle discussion of actual news. If information is publicized as part of promotional material, or otherwise announced through official channels, it is fair game. Our forum software allows you to clearly title the contents of your spoiler. Whenever possible and appropriate, please use this feature so that members will know exactly what you are hiding behind the tags. If a thread title has the word ‘spoiler’ in the title then you do not need to use spoiler tags in that thread and you can assume that discussion in that thread will revolve around said spoiler. It’s wonderful that you want to start a discussion, but being the Original Poster carries some responsibility to start things off on the right foot. If you’re going to create a thread, try to include more content and care than one or two short sentences. Consider whether the thread will generate good discussion, and scrutinize any sources you decide to cite. Try not to create new threads based on tweets, jokes, conspiracy theories, poor sources or yes/no questions. Consistently low quality threads may lead to your thread making privileges being revoked. Thread making privileges will be restored after 6 months, subject to a review by staff.: LTTP stands for Late-To-The-Party and means that you are catching up to a product whose release window and discussion you've completely missed. Please do not create a LTTP thread for a game that just came out one or two months ago; use the game OT (official topic) instead if it's not too old. RTTP stands for Return-To-The-Party and means that you want to revisit the discussion about a certain product. Similar rules as LTTP. Please do not create threads that have illegal links or magazine scans in them. If you create a thread based on an article, please do not copy the entire article and use snippets instead and a link to the article. Respect that these are written by people who make their living with those clicks, no matter if you agree and disagree with the premise. Also, properly represent these articles and don't spin them to create a narrative to your liking. If you create a thread based on a video, please create a short summary of it or write down your own opinion on why people should watch it (this of course isn't necessary for new game trailers though additional info is always helpful to have).: In our experience, these lead to nothing but pages and pages of emotionally fueled hot-takes that mostly resemble spam rather than actual material of value. Instead, use the relevant event and announcement threads for your instant reactions to keep them in one place. By creating a review thread for something we expect you to be active and keep updating the original post with more information instead of adding just the first few reviews and then bail out. Please refrain from creating a review thread if you are unable to do so. Similar to content threads, we expect you to share a snippet of the review, a score/final verdict and a link to it. You can also add the OpenCritic and MetaCritic scores. OTs for products need to be claimed first in the specific thread for OTs (which exist for both gaming and offtopic). You can design your OT however you want but we'd like to suggest that you should include some basic information about the product (see below). The format for an OT thread title is usually |OT| . OTs for games should not go up more than 72 hours before launch. A strong OT should contain the following: New OTs may be posted to and remain in their respective Video Games or EtcetEra sections for one month before being moved to the Hangouts. If something gets announced and you decide to make a thread for it, please try to include as much and as precise information as possible. If nothing is available, you can still make a thread and add information later using the edit feature. Don't worry if multiple threads are being created about the same announcement: the ResetEra team will merge these threads . Event threads should be created on the day the event starts and include schedules, stream links and some basic information. Those things should be included; the rest is up to you. A list thread is a thread that encourages replies that largely or completely take the form of lists. These threads tend not to generate much if any actual discussion or member interaction, and therefore are usually closed. Voting threads generally fall under this category as well. If you wish to create a voting thread, please contact an Administrator to seek an exception beforehand. Do not post any material that would be too explicit to be aired on network television. Many of our members are from the United States and have a good grasp of what this means and will be able to tell you where that line is. Do not post any material featuring characters wearing clothing that would get a real person arrested for public indecency. Do not post images, artwork, figurines, or any other material, no matter how stylized or fictional, which clearly fetishizes or sexualises characters under the age of 18. This restriction also uniquely extends to discussions; do not condone, defend, or otherwise excuse the sexualisation of children. Many of our members browse this website from their workplaces and material that excessively highlights or focuses on sexual or secondary sexual characteristics might be a bad look for them. Try to be tasteful and considerate if the option exists. You are encouraged to make use of spoiler tags or off-site links to hide images or other material that you believe may be on the borderline. If you have any questions feel free to contact a moderator beforehand.Do not post copyrighted material such as magazine scans. This policy also applies to copying and pasting entire articles or reports for redistribution on ResetEra. Linking to piracy websites or encouraging piracy is also prohibited. We have more information on this policy and DMCA takedowns in our terms of service.Do not create threads featuring links to products or services that you have a direct involvement in. Users are welcome and encouraged to post in already existing threads about a product or service that they are involved in (including links that are specifically relevant to the thread) so that they may engage with the community. Please note that this policy also applies to verified users on ResetEra Spam of any kind is not allowed on ResetEra. This refers to malware and phishing content, referral links, self-promotion and abuse of the post or private message system.In rare cases, we may ban certain websites or sources from being posted on ResetEra. The reason for each ban may vary but in general we will ban a site if they are an unreliable source of information or if they have a history of attempting to self-promote on our site. We ask that you not post content from these websites. You will know if a website is banned as the link will be replaced by asterisks. For more information on why a particular website has been banned, you may contact a moderator.We have a zero-tolerance policy on hate speech, bullying, harassment and doxing. Any users found to be involved in this behaviour will be banned. As a general measuring stick, if a game is it is unlikely to be appropriate here. Do not discuss these games or create threads about them. Games that are not on the Twitch list will only be considered for prohibition if the staff receives a complaint from the community. After review, the following games have also been prohibited: Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library Gal Gun Hatred Huniepop Monster Monpiece Omega Labyrinth Z Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura Super Seducer: How to Talk to Girls Super Seducer 2 Tits N Tanks Our international staff is made up of people with a variety of different backgrounds and experiences. To offer consistent moderation, we apply universal staff guidelines that are nevertheless flexible enough to evolve with the times. Every staff member has to follow the same rules as the rest of the forum and is expected to behave professionally when acting as a representative of ResetEra. On ResetEra, we aim to be as transparent as possible about the moderation of the site, especially when it comes to the banning of accounts. If you have any questions about our moderation, please do not risk a thread derail and instead feel free to contact the Mod Team Captains or . There is a available to the public that is regularly maintained and kept up to date. The majority of users on our website will never break a rule outlined in the FAQ and terms of service. We understand that some users may break a rule during a heated discussion or as a one off. We have a public warning system in place that allows us to warn the user for this behavior and communicate to our entire user base what sort of behavior is acceptable and what is not acceptable. If a user breaks a rule they will receive a public warning first in most cases. A moderator will add a red bar above the user’s post with text that contains a clear reason as to why the user was warned. The user that is warned may also receive a PM from a moderator which explains why the warning was issued. We hope that users will read all public warning messages they come across to understand how best to use the website. Please note that repeated warnings will lead to a ban. In some cases, we may choose to ban a user without a warning first. If a user continues to break the rules, especially after being warned in the past, we may temporarily ban the user. The length of the ban will depend on the user’s moderation history and the number of warnings that they have received in the past. For most users, we will start out with a 24-hour ban. We understand that sometimes what users need is a break, and so we want to give users the chance to learn from their mistakes so they can come back later with an improved mindset. In the interest of transparency, we will also keep the ban reason public for each user. You can find the public ban reason in the red bar at the top of the offending post. The ban reason text will contain a clear reason as to why the user was banned as well as the duration of the ban. Please note that users who continue to break the rules will receive longer bans. In certain cases, we may permanently ban a user. We will do this if a user continues to break the rules after multiple warnings or bans. We may also permanently ban users if they intentionally sign up to break our rules or violate the ToS. We encourage users to take advantage of the report system we have in place. The report system allows you to report posts, private messages or users that break any of the forum rules and/or violate the terms of service. Due to the real-time nature of ResetEra, moderators are unable to review every single post on the forum. Therefore, report feature is an extremely useful tool for both users and moderators as it allows site staff to respond to a post or thread where moderation is required soon after a report is received. You can report a post by clicking the report button on the top right of a user’s post next to the post number. This is shown in the image below. Once you’ve clicked the report button you’ll see a dialogue box where you can enter text. Please ensure you enter an accurate reason for why you are reporting the post. You can refer to the FAQ or Terms of Service for a list of rules. Once you’ve done this you can click ‘Report Post’ and a moderator will deal with it soon after. In addition to reporting other users posts, you can also report your own posts. This is useful in certain cases, such as requiring a moderator to change the title of your thread. Please use the report button responsibly. Ensure that you have a valid reason for reporting a post and make sure to articulate this clearly in the text box. Do not send reports just because you do not like a certain user or because you disagree with a valid opinion. Do not threaten another user with the report system. Abuse of the report system violates our rules, and will lead to a warning or ban.

Red Text Guys, again, please, stay positive and stay focused. Talal is going to start treatment soon and he'll need all of our good vibes today and into the future. This is not the time or place to vent about other forums; that does nothing to help anyone. If you want to help the best thing you can do is be constructive and spread the word where it'll be welcome.
