I don't want to wish the death of a community but from a business perspective, seeing as the admin is only motivated by gooseberry fool going wrong because of their own stupid actions anyway, he should sell it to some victim to try and make good of it (and probably fail), but maybe knows no other path, so I sympathise. It's hard to really when the other half of the community is doing well on their own site and that just reminds me of us. So, who's the victim here really.

It will grind to a halt eventually, it's what happens when anyone has the idea the train will run forever because it currently runs.

Is the GAF games side doing better? Do you think there are people who haven't really noticed the whole GAF breakdown because their little group is unaffected?

This is definitely true for Off Topic Community. In all seriousness if GRcade hit the kind of low activity levels that Off Topic Community is currently seeing I would start to consider pulling the plug.


Don't pull Denster's butt plug. He might enjoy it.

And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

First time I’ve visited the site this year because I was passing time on the train, to be greeted with...

why do women prefer dark chocolate?

I know 2 women and they all hate normal chocolate.

https://www.resetera.com/threads/why-do ... ate.16149/

I think the bigger story here is that women are apparently on the verge of extinction and we haven’t noticed. There’s only 2 left...

Looks like ResetEra got their funding plan sorted - ads for everyone with a $4 per month / $40 per year 'Era Clear' subscription to remove them, though unlike GAF there'll be no bans for using ad blockers.

I was reading their announcement thread earlier and the staff kept blatantly ignoring the questions about where the money is going and who, if anyone, profits from it. So much for transparency, lol. Part of the reason why GAF crumbled was because people didn't want to see someone like Evilore massively profiting from the community.

I assume the silence means someone does intend to profit from it, but they just don't want to admit that to the userbase.

It'd be hilarious if they found out that Evilore was actually running things in the background and was quietly making a fortune from Resetera.

As soon as all that gooseberry fool kicked off and there was another site being set up, you just knew the people doing so we're in it for the money.

A guy makes enough money off a site to live on and drive a Porsche? Let's steal his site from under him and have some of that sweet sweet moolah for ourselves!
