I don't "hope" for Chris to come back to MC, he's been accused, without any basis, of lying by a mod, banned, and he's been dealing with trolls since forever. As a sales "amateur" and someone working in the industry on the distribution side (pc), thanks for your hard work Chris and keep us updated on your plan, if any.
I'm shocked that the users that only posted to complain about the community left the thread immediately after people started talking about sales again.
With respect to the attempts to reach out to the community and provide clarity, I do not believe it would be productive to stifle discussion on what is an ongoing event that has a lot of people in the community concerned. I am sure everyone wants to put the last couple of days behind them, but there are clearly still discussions that need to be had. Conversations that are more important to have as a group and with each other, not just in private messages with the moderation, or in the constructive community discussion thread, which has little traction and the posts we did make went largely ignored. As things stand right now, people are concerned with retaliation if they speak their mind to the group: If we can’t have these conversations here and now while things are happening, they will just continue to happen elsewhere, and this is damaging to the forum as it is then perceived as the antagonistic group, not the home of the community. No one wants that to be the case.
I'm rolling at this deep dive, you can think whatever you want but I've been right on the money every time. Believe it or not I was on the communities side every time, maybe it doesn't look like it when you're frothing at the mouth. And those are reactionary shitposts honey, if you want to continue this riveting conversation it's going to have to be at the feedback thread cause it's not sales related or following the guidelines.
Because it's probably quite annoying to be constantly dealing with trolls for months on end, with zero mod action taken against them, to then be banned himself for "trolling" which was actually more like "strongly disagreeing with a mod". Not sure I'd come back. He's already fighting a constant battle against bad faith posters and now he has to deal with a mod team that apparently singles him out in his own thread whilst constant trolls, drive bys and straight up toxic behaviour towards an entire thread and its community are allowed no problem
Man, it sure is discouraging when the new guidelines prompt a bunch of people who have never participated in MC discussions before, in these threads or anywhere on the forum, come in here to tell the community that we're a bunch of toddlers who deserve to be banned. As if MC threads didn't already have a trolling problem, now people who normally just keep their community sniping contained to safe spaces like Discord and OTs will be coming in here to fire off their potshots too.In the past, and also in the present.
I hope ResetEra dissapears, and they stop winning money with this dictatorial masked as leftist treatment.
He got onto Bitcoin because he's a complete loser and complete losers are Bitcoin's entire userbase. I would like the USA to crush him and ruin his life, but Biden is too dovish to do anything with him.
I think for me, it's weird that this story has gotten so much traction on resetera. I realize there are a shit ton of true crime junkies everywhere, and that's the primary driver. But stuff I've read in related threads this week had me confused. For example, ACAB is a widely accepted concept here here, yet the moment we find out the Laundries aren't cooperating, anyone agreeing with their stance of staying silent is dogpiled. How dare they do that to the poor girls parents, let the lawmen do their job!! Pro legal rights, except when we are we've got the bad guy. He fled, he's guilty! No press conferences by the Laundries, guilty! A good deal of (justified) pointing out of racist motivations for so many things, but it's a derail if it's brought up while discussing the mystery! I personally think it's a disservice to her memory at this point, she's been reduced to a crime novel victim character in a book we're a quarter of the way through reading, thirsty to dive back in for the next development. There are online tears being shed looking through happy IG pics and loving postcards to kids like she was our little sister. But nobody gives a shit about her. Gotta catch that killer and finish the book I'll leave it alone now, no more derail for me...just so wierd
Really wasn’t trying to start stuff and thought this could be an actual discussion. Honestly this is the first time I’ve really ever felt silenced here, kinda sucks. Guess I’ll be on my way, didn’t expect threats for trying to bring up something of interest that I had just thought about and didn’t search through the entire thread to find because I really haven’t been paying attention as much as everyone else on here. Oh well.
Yeah knowing that one of the mods is super hyped about this and even changed their tag to reflect it stings for me. But hey its their choice. If they want to be hyped along with the others then I can't stop them. I just won't play it myself.
* looks * Ah, low post count since the day Era opened. Previously banned for complaining that there were too many threads about JK Rowling's transphobia. Checks out.
It's mostly yes, I am not a regular, frequent or even a occasional poster here. The reputation you see here are entirely from Playstation fans. MC create threads are very helpful to people who comes in with genuine curiosity, however the uninformed drivebys get met with mockery. You may call that fault of the community. Also I agree that this place is not very friendly to Playstation fans but so is the market. Wiiu had gone through similar phases during its heyday.
The narrative in Western media is quite clear, painting Playstation as the undisputed market leader worldwide, that actual information is available that clearly demonstrates the opposite in certain markets is a thorn to a lot of eyes. Even Microsoft/Xbox has to deal with this unfair treatment, despite of their immense financial resources. That's also a reason that quite a few people would like less data and would be even favourable for MediaCreate Threads to disappear just to push their misleading marketing narrative with no contradiction . Because with verifiable data you can call out, misleading narrative. That there seems to be a push to position specific corporations and their leaders above criticism is very unfortunate. You can criticise Nintendo and Xbox all you want in many threads, but IT IS obvious where often the actual lines are drawn and it's obvious to whose favour and whose detriment these lines are drawn, there is a clear parttern.
Not gonna lie, it's hard to read the staff post as anything other than endorsement for the pro-PlayStation trolling that's been plaguing this thread for a while.
Yep, quick search for 'Media Create' under a few users that I can think of can back this up quite well. Again, not mentioned at all. Also I question the 'I really, really, reeeealllly want to comment her but the hostility keeps putting me off' claim(s) ITT, it's nonsense. Even as someone who hasn't commented much recently, MC threads have been 'fine' for months and months now (there have of course been bans but there are bans in every thread, referring mainly to the tone here), I could easily say just pick out week 9's MC thread of this year without even checking and I would be very confident there was not even a single ban, let alone a wave of them, at least from the 'regulars'. We all know the real reaon why you don't comment much and why you only cropped up when the bahhammer was swinging in your favour. Well let's see if you keep your word now that things have taken effect... (lol of course not).
Beautiful, naked, big-titted women just don't fall out of the sky, you know.
Don't worry about it. We still have hype threads for Sony and MS 1st party etc. so Acti-Blizz hype is safe.
I hope this doesn’t mean less hype threads for their games though. Resetera has a responsibility to keep the hype going for Acti-Blizz.
I really hope Era Mods are going to overthink this "all publishers / devs are equally bad so we won't shut down Blizzard hype threads" stance. Because Acti/Blizz is obviously way worse.
Most likely the guy was let go for other reasons but just wants to drum shit up cause he doesn't get the respect he wants. dude is probably an asshole in real life. Not everyone let go for unknown reasons is a saint. In all seriousness, As a developer, never do anything for free. Also, you are not entitled to anything you developed working for a company. They own it, you do not. You are not entitled to anything. This is why we need unions.
Voting your conscience is -by definition- wasting your vote. Arguably it's the only guaranteed way to do so. The vote does not care about your conscience. The ONLY thing that matters in an election, is who holds power after it is over. You either vote in such a way as to ensure the best outcome or you don't. If your vote helps keep the Con/PPC out, you did right. if it does anything else instead, the vote was wasted. You don't get extra good boy points for voting for someone who has no chance of winning and helping the bad guys win instead. In fact is kindof makes you a dick because you are prioritizing your ego over the well being of others.
The five separatist shitheads so far are weird to see but otherwise, yes.
Gets even worse, someone said on this very site they wouldn't turn in their own kid short of them being an active terrorist, so the litany of depraved sick crimes someone might commit if they aint a terrorist a ok in their books, and ever so slightly pivoted to say that they would then give them 'a few days head start' and then tell the family. Not even doing the basic decent step to inform the police, as if the millimetre change is somehow fucking ok. Fucking sickos on this site. This site is becoming a lost cause, if not already has moved over to being one.
It's very ironic that the salt that was palpable in here after the successful Tales of Arise reviews is what brought down this thread.
The bore is completely right about this place
The usual actors trying to pretend that this isn't one big cover thread to call companies that don't support your favorite Nintendo console dumbasses is not fooling anybody. It is essentially port begging and a dumb "secret club" jerkoff session disguised with code language. Trying to act like the thread was some holy sanctum under constant assault from Playstation fans is not helping your case at all. And don't try to paint it as "market realities". That would not come close to justifying the silly, childishly aggressive fanboy behavior I've seen in here. Hopefully the guidelines work, if people haven't been put off enough by the usual stench of not so slick dogpiling platform fanboys tiptoeing around language they know will get them banned. Here's to the guidelines working out.
Now news, Resetera mod will never change anything and will ban anyone who dare to criticize them. See you at Etika thread. It’s that same shit all over again.
nintendo likes money nintendo understands their fans are gaming’s biggest suckers brainstorm release the same console 4 years later with a 720 pen tile oled display and an ethernet jack for more money ??? profit
And Street Fighter has input shortcuts for doing shoryuken inputs. You can just do a double down-forward input and hit punch and viola, Ryu will shout one of his trademark attacks. You gonna say thats not competitive now? Is it only competitive if its fully assists off? Stop being so stupid for one second.
Just got caught up with the MC drama. All I'm going to say is that the wrong people got banned. One or two got too personal, but the rest are just wrong. Hope Chris comes back. Anyways, let's see if the Direct is announced on a day that ends in Y ( in the English Language) this week.
Just say the top 10 games are actually all PS5 titles.
Damn that Media Create thread is a fucking trainwreck. Didn't realise how toxic that thread was. There are people practically complaining that they aren't allowed to treat people like shit anymore.
U.S. will be vastly richer than China and India for both of our lifetimes. Your strike me as an idiot.
Seems like both Shang Chi actors aren’t that great of people or have old skeletons in their closet. It’s a shame.
Kinda weird looking at the post counts and histories of the couple of members in this thread that are super excited about playing this.
These types of sweeping guidelines have worked out so well in the past and will definitely fix things. *looks at PC Era, AsiaEra and Trans Era* I just don’t have any faith in that.
And that this all was started because a mod seemingly is affiliated with a developer (in whatever form) took grievance to people criticizing said developer by talking down to posters and mocking them for not understanding the language or having to read a book (which the mod seemingly hasn't read either). The provided translation did almost nothing to change the perception of a poor take from the developer, but the mod took the whole situation to double down and went full scorch earth on the community.
Wth is the mod team doing? ….
TransEra after sweeping improvements: gone AsianEra after sweeping improvements: gone The worst part is that those communities at least had a few mods that were fighting them. We don't have that luxury here.
Thread need moderation. But the direction of moderation to please the discord planet is hilarious instead of prioritize ERA community itself. And can I insult CVX here? you lurking for like 200 years here since GAF and before Jesus walk on water but still pull this out? Even Nibel and Zhuge was better than that without not making dad/mom jokes. ps. Ishaan did nothing wrong tho, but he getting use, I guess.
it's clear whoever asked for that one didn't like chris occasionally posting about shipments and stock.
I don’t know how can anyone say this with a straight face lol.. we had that racist 343 person that didn’t get perma’d until a whole community push the mods to perma ban him plus we still have another person close with the admins/mods that had multiple bans bout racisim and if that’s any another user they would have been perma’d a long time ago
