I've heard that cup of tea one loads before, and it never makes sense to me.

Why would your mum/dad/whoever want you to know they've walked in on you?

The cup of tea story has been around for decades, I remember hearing it in the early 90s.

Slightly worse grammar and that would make a classic Tragic drunk post, to be fair.

Forum restructuring planned for Sunday over on Era - "the liberation of the EtcetEra Hangouts and the creation of a new Entertainment section":
https://www.resetera.com/threads/announ ... ght.65713/

Hey, remember when we had an Entertainment board? Fun times.

Also looks like the mods are in a bit of a Labour-style pickle over the current international definition of antisemitism, specifically regarding members making comparisons between Israeli policies and the Nazis (which is antisemitic as defined by the IHRA):

Edit: some inconsistent bans met with outrage has resulted in a thread lock.

There are some posts on there that are right, it will just fragment the community. Oh well, let them try it for a few years lol

Let's see how the ResetEra forum restructuring is going down with the community:
https://www.resetera.com/threads/are-yo ... 01/page-23

:slol:

I like the suggestion of another forum exodus to NeoEra :lol:

I think it would've been better if from the start they'd just made ResetEra a non-profit community and let the community continue as it was while voting on big changes, with any extra income being saved for the future of the community or perhaps some given to charities instead of lining someone's pockets - the way it is now it gives the feeling that people behind the scenes are trying to increase clicks to increase profits without caring what the community thinks.

I can't believe you strawberry floaters put my Neighbours thread in EtcetEra rather than Entertainment. You idiots.

It was pretty obviously a cash grab from the very beginning

Whatever Github hack they're using for embedded tweets has been broken for months now when using Safari, clicking on any link in the tweet just takes you to a redirect page that does nothing. This has been brought up countless times in all the feedback threads after each update but it's gone completely ignored by the admins there.

I see their newer theme still looks awful.

I can't believe they never changed that horrible purple they used on the new theme! It still looks really narrow on my laptop too. I just stuck with the old theme.

Under maintenance again, maybe they're about to reset resetera?

They said on Twitter they're changing things back.

Hmm maybe it would have been a good idea to field some ideas rather than "polling prevalent members" and looked at whether the community had actually suggested it first, which we did (just sayin').

Although to be fair, I think we did merge the folder structure back together as an "executive order", because despite the benefits of more folders at the time, it just turned out we were too small to fragment stuff. But then we also implemented the tags feature so it was at least mitigated somewhat and the respective communities obviously didn't go away.

Wait, they didn't even poll the whole community on the changes first?! :lol:

Please tell me "polling prominent members" didn't just mean asking all the people with that dumb "Community Resettler" tag?

They only asked around 50 topic creators from the Hangouts section :P
