EtcetEraThread Best selling author Sarah Dessen sends twitter followers after a college student for not liking her books
Reason User Banned (1 day): Hostility over a series of post
lol you are so full of shit it's unreal. Invent a racist? Dude I said that Fox News shit before you even mentioned anything to me. You're the one who has the reading comprehension of a high school sophomore and immediately *assumed* you knew what I was talking about without really connecting the dots. Like, are you unable to see how this whole dialogue can EASILY be turned into a Fox News talking point? Is that beyond your grasp? Apologize for trying to assume that I didn't read the thread and then not understanding what I was saying. (Really, if you were a decent person you'd apologize for just being an antagonist in the thread, too, rather than actually trying to have a reasoned, level-headed conversation with your fellow forum-members. But that doesn't allow you to look like the hero in your own little Euripides play that you've got playing out in your head here, so I'm not holding my breath.)

we will probably see a lot more Jap./Jrpg Games finding their way on Gamepass. Its a Win Win Situation for both parties - Japanese Game sell mostly on Ps4 and Switch, so there is not much money to loose from the perspective of the developers, while Microsoft is making their Gamepass more attractive to these fanbases. personally im happy to see Microsoft making a strong comeback - this will only push Sony further to deliver.

EtcetEraThread We need to talk about responding to Trans related issues
Reason User banned (duration pending): Abusing a personal relationship with a moderator to misuse private staff discussions.
The first part is a good first step as it is actually addressing an issue that has been a long running issue on this site and online in general. Outrage culture, left eating itself, woke culture, and bad faith arguing are all used incorrectly by people and used primarily as a way to dismiss people as not being genuine so that they don't have to actually entertain that they could be wrong. It's incredibly similar to the arguments that people have used in the past that accuse people of virtue signalling which has been actioned quite a bit, which is why it was frustrating to see things regress on this front. The issue that exists within the pronoun section is the implications that doing something like that carries if it's not explicitly said. People who willfully misgender trans people are telling us that they don't really see trans people as the gender that we are, that we aren't valid. When someone does this explicitly for all trans people, that is abundantly clear. However, there are times where someone will see a trans person doing something criminal and they'll start to fall back into using the wrong pronouns. This shows that they don't see us as valid as much as they see our identities as a courtesy or a polite gesture that can be taken back when needed. We have been told in the past that people who do not see trans women as women, trans men as men, or trans people in general as valid will be perma'd instantly when they reveal this, and I think that willful misgendering should fall into that category as well. And you're right that trans people are individuals, but you sort of start to counteract that with your very next part. Staff members and regular members are not treated the same way, and it's always been apparent to everyone who posts on this forum to the point that it's a running joke in a lot of circles here. I'm not talking about who makes decisions on reports, but the way that hostility is treated as well as the way that bigotry is actioned. If someone insults another member, they'll get a warning or at most a day ban if they don't have a history. But, if someone comes after the moderation or express frustration they'll more than likely get 5 days to a week at minimum. I don't think that you all should be facing harassment of any kind, but this is one of the easily verifiable things on the site that people have seen. The way that bigotry is handled by people on Staff is also a bit strange. There was that one transphobic post by a moderator that when posted by anyone else would have been a month ban, but in this case, they were just talked to and allowed to stay on the team. When evidence was presented of how they had said these things throughout their time on GAF before this, it was dismissed and considered resolved. There are also chats that have been shown to people about a moderator on the staff talking in the discord about how Asexuals should not be a part of the LGBT+ community and instead of any challenging or talking through, was essentially told that people could see where they were coming from, to not feel bad, and then dropped. These things are always going to be treated differently because these people that are on the team are more easily reached, more easily talked to than the people on the forum, but these double standards that people see on top of the regressions that have happened in some topics are going to frustrate people. Of course you guys care about the site, but you often seem to be under the impression that you're the only ones who do and the rest of us are just trying to stick it to you instead of doing what we can from our own end. The users of this site are people too, and you can't expect us to take just as much abuse as you when we have no ways of pushing back against it. It's not that you all aren't open to listening or feedback, so much as the opinions on people of staff are typically held higher than the rest. Which is somewhat understandable as you're able to have longer and more in-depth conversations as you're in a discord together, but is part of the issue I have with this "Trans people are individuals" line. I get what your point is. There are threads where people are upset about an issue going on and telling someone that they don't care about trans issues without knowing the first thing about the person they're talking to. That isn't good, and that should be taken care of, but when we're able to recognize that trans people are going to differ on some of these minute topics it can't all come down to the weight of whichever trans mod is online at that particular moment to make the call every time. Because I'm dating someone who was on the mod team for almost 2 years and had a lot of conversations with you all, I know that it's rare for more than one trans mod to be around and tackling reports. And I think you all need to be more open to the idea that people aren't reporting what they see as bigotry for no reason.

Gaming HangoutsThread Outer Wilds |OT| Life, the universe, and everything else all in 20 minutes!
Red Text Please refrain from making this thread about current available platforms. This OT is to discuss the game and not which storefront it is currently on.
Credit to for putting this together You’re the newest member of Outer Wilds Ventures, a fledgling space program searching for answers in a strange, constantly changing solar system. Who built the ruins on the moon? What lurks in the heart of Dark Bramble? Why are you trapped in a time loop, and can it be stopped? To solve these mysteries you’ll have to venture into the most dangerous reaches of space. The planets of Outer Wilds are packed with hidden locations that change with the passage of time. Visit an underground city before it’s swallowed by rising sand, or explore the crust of a hollow planet as it crumbles beneath your feet. Every secret is guarded by hazardous environments and natural disasters as the solar system spirals out of control. Strap on your hiking boots, check your oxygen levels, and get ready to venture into space. Use the Little Scout space probe to illuminate dark caves, take photos, or test for hazards in your environment. Track down mysterious audio with your Signal Scope or use your Translator to decipher an ancient Nomai riddle. Navigate the darkness of space with your jetpack and ship. There’s a lot to discover in the Outer Wilds. The game started out as a student project, with a free "Alpha" version made available in 2013. After the game garnered more and more attention (and nearly 90.000 downloads) Mobius Digital picked the team up in 2015, after the demo won the Seamus McNally Grand Prize and Excellence in Design at the Independent Games Festival. The full game was then to be funded through fig, a crowdfunding site, with an initial pitch for a 2016 release and a goal of 125,000 $, that was met. Initial fig campaign link: Fig-backers that chose PC as a platform "will get both an Epic key upon launch and a Steam key later when released on those services. " () Annapurna Interactive announced that they will be publishing the game in 2018:

But they have bought alot of studios, and we will have to wait a bit, and see what they can do under Microsoft. Can't wait to see, what they have prepared for Scarlet and the future.

AnnouncementsThread General Guide to ResetEra
Red Text This is an example of a staff post.
An explanation of the roles and responsibilities of our staff, as well as our approach to moderation in general. Our international staff is made up of dedicated individuals spread across five continents, with wildly diverse backgrounds and interests. Women, people of color, LGBTQ, and religious minorities are all well represented on our team. That team consists entirely of volunteers drawn from the community they seek to serve. A comprehensive is available to the public and updated regularly. The team processes hundreds of reports daily, and every one of those reports is handled by multiple moderators. We also receive dozens of emails and private messages, and manually approve dozens of new registrations each day. This work is endless, stressful, and often thankless. Many staff members put in countless hours each week towards maintaining the forum; this is a responsibility they take on because they care deeply about the community and want it to be the best that it can be. It is important to note that we take a team approach to moderation, and no single moderator will ever be solely responsible for a given decision. All moderator actions are automatically logged and visible to the rest of the team; it is therefore impossible for an individual member of staff to go rogue. Every action is discussed as a team and signed off on by multiple staff before it is carried out. The diversity of our team is a strength -- we always seek insight on any given issue from the staff members who know the most about it. Like all members, individual staff have strong opinions on any number of topics and are free to express those opinions as posters. Those opinions and posts are their own and do not represent official policy. Moderator actions are always driven by consensus from multiple staff and by our written guidelines and policies. Official staff communications will be marked as such. These are the volunteers charged with enforcing our mission statement and our policies. They are on the front lines when it comes to keeping the peace on the forums. Moderators process the bulk of the reports, provide guidance through written warnings, and try to make contributions as posters along the way. Many were pillars in the community even before they became staff. Without their efforts, there would not be a community to inhabit the site. The administration is responsible for keeping the site healthy and operational in all areas. This means coordinating with tech staff on maintenance and new features, verifying industry members, screening new registrations, and responding to emails. Administrators also lead internal policy discussions and are often called upon to provide guidance to the moderation team. Certain administrators (designated as "Mod Captains" on the roster) are specifically in charge of managing the moderation team. These Mod Captains are required to approve any ban over 2 weeks in duration. They also process appeals and are available to answer any questions you might have about moderation. We aim to articulate our policies and expectations as clearly as possible, in this document and in all our official communications. Whenever a user is warned or banned for a post, the reason is provided in a public banner attached to that post. In addition to ensuring transparency and accountability, these banners are helpful for other members to understand where the lines are and what our rationale is. Every staff member is expected to follow the same rules as the rest of the forum. Due to our heavy workload, a large moderation team is required to ensure timely coverage around the clock. The size of the team can make it very challenging to ensure consistent moderation. To address this, we have Mod Captains and internal moderation guidelines based on precedent and publicly available policy. Some flexibility is required to account for new or unexpected circumstances. Our team moderates to the spirit of the rules and our mission statement. Multiple factors are taken into account before coming to a decision. We weigh past infractions, post history, and the severity of the post(s) when determining penalties. We also consider whether a member doubled down on their behavior. Staff members are required to avoid any involvement in moderating disputes that they have personally taken part in. This means that a moderator will never moderate a user for an argument between the two. Instead, any relevant reports are handled independently by other moderators on the team. We do our utmost to ensure that moderation is impartial, objective, and not driven by emotion. On the other hand, when it comes to community threads that might each have a unique culture, we always seek to consult staff members who are familiar with that community in order to avoid potential misunderstandings. Please bear in mind that due to the highly active and fast paced nature of discussion on ResetEra, it is impossible for our staff to be everywhere. Even if you notice staff presence within a thread, there is no guarantee that they have read every single post before or after their own. Do not assume that moderators are ignoring rule violations. If you see an issue, report it. The fastest way to bring something to the attention of the staff is to report it. All reports go into a single queue visible to the entire moderation team. You can report posts, profiles, and private messages. If you report a private conversation, moderators will be able to join that conversation in order to get the full context. Please remember that we process hundreds of reports daily and that it may take some time to get to yours. The most common use of the report system is to report posts that are believed to be breaking the rules. However, you can also report your own post if you need a thread locked, a thread title changed, a double post deleted, etc. You can report a message by clicking the button on the bottom left of the message. All reports are read and investigated, but there are some steps that you can take to make things easier for the staff. To ensure your report is processed as quickly as possible, please focus on describing exactly what is wrong with the post and why it requires staff attention. Be clear about what rule has been broken, if any. Do not be flippant or sarcastic, and do not assume that staff will understand your argument unless it is spelled out. The moderators available at any given time might not always be familiar with a particular subject, the history of the posters involved, or the dynamics in a specific community. Make sure you include any and all relevant context in your report. Please do not abuse the report system by submitting frivolous or rude reports. Your reports should always be polite and constructive. You may send follow-up reports about the same post, but do not keep reporting a post just to protest a decision. Misuse of the report system can result in a warning or a ban. Do not make public posts threatening to report other members -- either report them or don't. When the staff needs to directly provide guidance in a thread, a staff post will be made. These posts will be marked as 'OFFICIAL STAFF COMMUNICATION' and have been designed to be highly visible. Please see the example below. Staff posts are often threadmarked if they contain guidance that is relevant to the thread as a whole. In such cases, the title will also be adjusted to indicate that a staff post has been made. Ignoring this guidance can lead to a warning or a ban. We recommend that you always check for the ‘Staff Posts’ button at the top of any thread you enter; this button will only appear if a staff post has been threadmarked. It is technically possible for ordinary members to use the staff post template -- this was necessary to allow staff posts to be quotable. However, you should not take advantage of this. Altering a staff post or creating a fake one, even as a joke, will result in a ban. The majority of our members will never break a rule or face moderation action. However, when such action is required, there are a range of punitive measures that might be used. Warnings are applied when a user needs guidance and/or has committed a minor infraction -- these are situations where a ban is deemed unnecessary. All infractions, including warnings, are logged for future reference by the moderation team. For transparency, a public banner will be added to the offending post explaining the warning. Some warnings will contain a more detailed message for the offending member, to ensure that they understand why they are being warned and how they can avoid problems in the future. You must manually acknowledge a warning before you are able to post again. Bans are used for more serious infractions, when a warning is ignored, or for a recurring pattern of misbehavior. As with warnings, bans are logged and public banners are applied to the offending post. The length of the ban depends on the severity of the infraction as well as the member's record. The more infractions a member has, the longer their next ban is likely to be. Serious infractions, such as those related to bigotry, are monitored and tracked separately from other bans. In cases where we determine that a member is either unable or unwilling to correct their behavior, a permanent ban will be issued. When a long ban is requested, or when the team is initially unsure how long a ban should be, it will be marked as 'Duration Pending' on the public banner. These bans are reviewed by the Mod Captains, who determine the final length. Thread creation privileges may be revoked or suspended if a member creates low quality threads. Low quality threads include threads that are poorly sourced, have obvious clickbait titles, are created to troll members or staff, or otherwise fail to provide an OP that encourages good discussion. Thread creation privileges are either revoked permanently or for a 6 month period, after which you can request them back by contacting the staff. This is sometimes informally referred to as a 'junioring'. You can appeal a ban by clicking the link at the bottom of the site (accessible while banned). We recommend that you use the form while logged in so that we can verify that it is you. If you'd prefer to be contacted at a different email than the one you registered with, please mention that in your message. Include all relevant context and information, and be polite and constructive while making your case. Taking an aggressive tone or sending insults to staff will not be rewarded, and in fact may lead to a more severe penalty up to and including a permanent ban. We receive a large number of emails each day and do not guarantee a response to all of them. Ban appeals are reviewed independently by the Mod Captains. Backseat moderation is when members take it upon themselves to act as if they are in charge of moderation, such as by trying to enforce rules themselves, or by publicly insisting on what kind of moderation needs to happen. Please do not do this. This behavior often leads to thread derailment and user arguments; it is also discourteous to the staff. The report system is always available if you want to bring your concerns to the attention of the team. If you have questions about moderation, feel free to use the contact form or reach out to the Mod Captains directly. What you should never do is tag individual staff members in a thread while asking them to carry out some form of moderation, particularly punitive action against other members. This is obnoxious and unnecessary and will result in penalties for you. There may be times when you disagree with a moderator action or lack thereof. Your feedback and criticism is welcome and encouraged, so long as it is constructive, politely presented, and offered through appropriate channels like the contact form or private messages. If you post complaints about moderation in a public thread, you will be responsible for any ensuing derailment. If your words cross the line into hostility or outright attacks on staff, you will be banned for modwhining. Please be aware that our volunteer staff are never required to passively receive abuse or invective. This applies to both public and private forms of communication, including private messages and reports.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing transphobia
I showed my gf the post that I quoted. She had a good laugh. And she's trans. This is typical ERA toxicity, where everything is black and white. I got shit on in another topic for being anti-lgbt while being part of that group. I got shit on by people for being anti-that, hating that, while these people fight for better Switch Icons in their spare time.... the same night I was part of a demonstration in my city. It's just ridiculous. I will watch the Globes. With my gf. With our friends. With other trans folk. And we will have great night. So that's that. I'm out.

Reason User Banned (2 weeks): inflammatory generalizations
I'm going to be 100% honest here, I don't think Pete can win. Black voters are not going to vote for him. Homophobia in the black community is so pervasive that I just can't see black voters voting for him. Without that he won't be winning the nomination.

EtcetEraThread South Park mocks trans athlete with a transphobic episode
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing concerns of and defending transphobia. Prior offense relating to bigotry.
The whole point of the episode is that this wasn't a transphobic episode but people would call them transphobic and bigots anyway. And here we are. There is definitely nuance and details to the story that make it very inoffensive but when you ignore all that and take it all at surface level, you are what they were ultimately making fun of. Not a single bit of this episode felt like it was poking fun at transgender people, instead it felt like it was making fun of the people on this board who love to join in outrage without even knowing what they are mad at; as shown by the numerous people in here claiming they don't even watch the show.

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Troll account
What’s the problem with the President of United States visiting an American tech company in an American city? What type of protest are you users planning and what effect do you think it’ll really have on your liberal agenda? If the LGBTLMOPQRSTUVWXYandZ ppl haven’t spoken about it why are you concerned lmao Let Tim invite OUR president into the Apple plant. Seriously REEEEEsetERA needs to loosen up, and calm dafuq down.

GamingThread CONFIRMED: Pokémon Sword/Shield Dropped GTS; Contains Multiplayer Code From Let's Go
Reason User banned (duration pending): Hostility towards moderation. Inflammatory generalizations.
I don't buy this bullshit. People got mad that others were criticizing their favorite toy company so they decided to send unearned praise to them in the face of the shit show that is Pokemon SwSh. They then tried to take the moral high ground and proclaimed much of the criticism to be "toxic" while shouting "we forgive you, king" as loud as they could to drown out the "haters." Then, moderators of ResetEra, who allow "Capcpom is baaaaack," fuck EA, fuck Activision, fuck Ubisoft, fuck Konami, Fuck Bioware, Fuck Bethesda, and so, so much more decided it would be a Galaxy Brain move to warn people off of criticising miniscule indie developer GameFreak, because it would just be unfair to hold them to the same standard that literally every other game developer has been held to on this site. Handwaving away concerns because "the game isn't out yet" despite the whole thing being leaked and streamed is just peachy keen. Lobbing a sarcastic softball that calls out the corny protectiveness of a fanbase that is coddling a company that produces a multi-million selling entertainment franchise because people suddenly realized that being assholes online may hurt the developers' feelings in this instance and this instance only because only GameFreak has real people working on their games (unlike Ubisoft and Bioware and Bethesda and Activision and EA) is the farthest thing from what should be moddable action, especially in a forum where routine veiled accusations of shilling for companies or a lack of moral scruples due to a poster's unwillingness to comply with the boycott du jour are levied against people with no mod action in sight. There has been exactly zero mod response to their actions in this thread, while they apparently have time to heavily moderate other Pokemon threads. Are we gonna see the bullshit warnings reversed? Are we going to get any transparency at all for the power tripping warning wave for a hilariously innocuous sentiment that pales in comparison to previously tacitly endorced toxicity surrounding other game releases? I thought this place was supposed to be different from the old one, with more consistent and transparent moderation, but in practice it seems like there's a list of "prominent developers" in addition to the prominent members list that absolves you from criticism and must be sheltered through strict tone policing

Interesting to see so many talk like acts of extreme violence against women by men can be justified as long as he was sufficiently verbally provoked. There's never a valid excuse for any man to do that to any woman.

EtcetEraThread Why does nobody seem to care that Tupac was a rapist?
Reason User banned (2 weeks): disingenuous and inflammatory commentary surrounding sexual assault, inappropriately blaming recidivism on victims speaking out
They both served their time. The internet wants to cast someone away forever because of a past wrong but stuff like that is partly why recidivism rates are so high. Tupac served his time. Mike Tyson served his time.
