Just had a look and yeah GAF sure does seem a lot quieter. I don't need another slow forum, that's why GRcade exists!

I've registered with Resetera, wonder how long it'll take me to get my account confirmed.

What email did you use? They don't allow stuff like gmail, hotmail etc. for open registration.

Why don't they permit Gmail? What's wrong with it?

Far too easy for people to sign up for alt accounts with free emails like that.

It's very easy to set up a throwaway Gmail account. It's less easy to set up a throwaway work account (and if you were a huge dickhead they could contact your employer).

A former admin on another forum I post on actually did this to someone and they ended up getting fired.

I would never sign up to a forum using a work email address

A GAF mod must've eventually noticed my posts talking about rersetera in the 40K community thread, I got permabanned for 'derailing and advertising' - harsh :lol:

Looks like they didn't remove my sabotaging of the OP though, teehee: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=666385

A user on ResetEra has received a warning for 'port begging.' A bit heavy handed if you ask me that you could end up getting banned for it! I would say it's a reasonable part of gamer discourse to admire a game and express that you want to play it.

From a quick skim of that thread... the person just said that they’d like a Switch version. I don’t get why that would deserve a warning?

It used to get pretty annoying on GAF when, a new game was announced, all you saw was people wishing it's released on a platform other than the one it's announced on. (Annoying? Yes. Ban worthy? No.) It's just how they do it. Like their rule for new news = new thread, even if a thread for the game already exists. (Having editable thread titles would help with that.) Which is another thing they do differently.

That's a bloody stupid rule to have, what's wrong with saying you would want it on a certain platform.

And so begins resetera becoming a place of retarded warnings and bans.

I thought it sounded stupid at first but why would you bother saying it?

They had to do it on GAF because with so many thousands of users you ended up with pages of people dropping in to post about wanting a game on a different platform rather than discussing the game itself, which made for shitty reading. Not such of an issue on a smaller forum like GRcade.
