The restructure apparently failed because it was successful beyond their expectations:
Earlier today we rearranged the forum with the goal of encouraging more discussion on entertainment topics, and to promote threads from the EtcetEra Hangouts. The results did some good; community OTs definitely saw a boost in activity, and some which had never even gotten off the ground before suddenly found new interest.

Unfortunately, we underestimated just how much impact this would have on thread list congestion. The renewed activity was beyond our expectations and ended up sidelining everything else, especially in the Entertainment section. Browsing for regular topics became difficult, which only fed back into the problem. Most disappointingly of all this created tension between segments of the wider community, which was absolutely not something that we wanted to let fester.

For these reasons, we have rolled back the changes. If you added anyone to your ignore list to avoid their threads please consider it safe to undo that.

It was bloody obvious that would happen :fp:

The part I didn't expect was people putting topic creators on their ignore list just to hide threads they didn't want to see :lol:

I find that quite funny that they basically experienced the opposite problem to us.

Also I'd hazard to think GAF spontaneously adding a toxic ring fence for politics discussion was the start of a downward spiral but, er, that already happened. They've been games and off topic only as long as I can remember. Something tells me someone doesn't like the current political slant...

I got told yesterday by a hater of the Entertainment board that Resetera is american forum and if I don't like all the dumb trump threads then I should leave. :lol:

MOD EDIT:
As everyone knows, Israel/Palestine threads are some of the most contentious and difficult to moderate. Early in our history we tried being as hands off as possible to let people express themselves, and the result was that the discussions escalated out of control and permanent bans had to be issued.

I am very shocked a this.

I feel like this place is a relative oasis of calm and sanity surrounded by the madness that is the wider internet, Resetera being a prime example of said madness.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

Megaman 11 thread about not being able to jump hang through doors. The ridiculousness of whinging about a fairly minor aesthetic change. strawberry floating hell.

No idea what the rest of the thread is like, but the opening post is clearly written in jest.

What do you do with moldy bread?

First reply:

Return my unused portion to the store for a refund


Can you imagine taking half a loaf of bread back to a shop because it's mouldy?
