EtcetEraThread Guardian: Majority of Europeans fear Biden unable to fix 'broken' US
Red Text This is a feature written for a UK/EU audience and badged as part of a series of articles with a pan-European angle. As such it takes an outside view of the US. However, we are a multinational board, and the rise of far right extremism is not unique to the US as it has been a problem across a large swath of the western world. Sneering at it as entertainment from overseas is not helpful, insightful or conducive to discussion. Please stay on topic and avoid sweeping generalisations. Thanks.

GamingThread VGC's Platform of the Year is PlayStation 4
Red Text Alright let's try this again. We've had to lock two VGC awards threads in recent days because people haven't been able to act like adults. For the record yesterday we reviewed the Phil Spencer thread and issued a large number of bans for Sony console warriors who derailed it – what we found was that the thread was fine, initially, and nobody cared about Transistor's lukewarm take about PR until some usual suspects decided to turn the thread into a battleground. Those usual suspects are now banned.

Red Text In recognition of International Transgender Day of Remembrance, we’ve made the decision to lock all threads about Cyberpunk 2077 for today (November 20th) to raise awareness about the concerns related to the publisher and the game. Originally the plan was to close the OT on this date as it was the day after the game was due to release; there will still be an OT closure on the day after release to honor that commitment. However, with marketing for the game now in full swing, this is another way to draw attention to the issue. The threads will be reopened tomorrow.

When it comes to drawing any parallels to polls and 2016 please understand as of right now. As of right now, polls would need be even further outside 2016 polling for them to be incorrect. Many pollsters have changed their weighting on education to compensate. In the spirit of keeping things focused on this years election, its best not to derail the thread with 2016 comparisons. These are two different races for many different reasons. Here are two articles explaining this phenomenon. Its no secret many on this forum are heavily Pro Biden-Harris. Here are some cheat sheets on their campaign. When it comes to Trump there is plenty of "Information" out there. However if you, friend or family are on the fence on Biden Harris, here are a few quick cheat sheets you can post or share to talk to.
