UPDATE ON THE SHITSTORM:

Burn, baby, burn.

Start here to know what is going on, to tl;dr the site owner was accused of sexual assault, moderators and admins jumped ship and forum is in pure chaos.

UPDATE: Evilore has made a statement about this shitstorm






Wikipedia on NeoGAF:
  • NeoGAF, formerly known as the Gaming-Age Forums, is an internet forum that discusses video games, founded as an adjunct to Gaming-Age, a video game news website. Since April 4, 2006, the site has been independently hosted and administered.
What happens when you have a gaming forum filled with the worst communities, insane Tumblrites, pedophiles, console fanboys and even more? Welcome to NeoGAF: A never-ending circus.

1. A General Overview of the Forum

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/

For lurkers, there are four subforums: Gaming Discussion, Gaming Community, Off-Topic Discussion and Off-Topic Community. Simple.

2. The Rules Of The Forum (READ THEM OR GET BANNED, YOU SHITLORD!)

Of course, the forum has its own rules, but the rules should give you a rough idea of how hilariously bad the forum is.

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=390708
  • You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use NeoGAF to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. Sexual, racial, or ethnic slurs will not be tolerated in any form and are bannable on the first offense. It is recommended that profanity be held to a minimum in order to keep the level of discourse high, and profanity should not be used when addressing others. Though NeoGAF is an international forum, discussion is to be held in English unless otherwise designated.

  • Innapropriate Posts & Banned Memes

    - Thread Whining / Respect to Others. It's not that "Haters gonna hate" is a banned meme, it's that it's often used to be flippant and dismissive to other posters. If someone is trying to explain what they think about something, either treat them with respect or don't reply at all. So when you post "u mad", "deal with it", "haters gonna hate", "the GAF hivemind", "the usual suspects", "but GAF said x and now they're saying y!!!", "entitled whiners" or anything else that suggests that you don't care what other people think, you may be banned if it is taking away from discussion. This is getting to be a pretty big problem, and it's probably the single largest category of bans these days. If you don't want to discuss something, you don't need to post.

    This also includes things like "weekend gaf", "sounds like a GameFAQs threads", "tl;dr", "cool story, bro", "Neat" and associated image macros, "who gives a shit", etc. This list is not exhaustive, and using variants of these statements such as "bold please" and "screw the haters" is not a good way to avoid getting banned, as the problem is the general message/intent of your post, not the specific words you are using. If you think a particular thread is lowering a quality of the forum, PM a moderator about it.

    - Racist / Bigoted humour or language. As per the Terms of Service, "you will not use NeoGAF to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. Sexual, racial, or ethnic slurs will not be tolerated in any form and are bannable on the first offense." This includes racial or bigoted humour. We do not allow any slurs--including middle school language like "That's so gay!". This also includes racist comedy images, for example "Shoop da Woop" or "Stole My Bike". It also includes misogynistic, sexist, homophobic, or anti-transgendered remarks, jokes, or memes. Although we do allow some humour that offends, it's easily possible to cross the line and people are banned for particularly cruel and insensitive remarks all the time ("rape time" is one example--and I know the "nicole bass" meme was a big thing years ago, and no shortage of people have been banned in threads commenting on natural disasters).

    - Gotcha! Bait and Switch. You don't need to trick people. Don't post comedy news as real news, don't post rickrolls, don't post rumours as facts, don't post things you don't believe just because another site posted them, try to find legitimate sources.

    - Console War. Obviously arguments about consoles, platforms, and publishers are going to get heated. Don't make things worse by calling out "xbots" or "ntards" or "fanboys" or "sdf" or "xdf" or insulting someone else by calling them one of those things. Clearly some people get a bit too attached, but the best thing you can do is try to improve conversation, not make it worse by dragging it down in the mud. It's also important to make sure you aren't getting too attached. If you find yourself getting super defensive about something or claiming that everyone other than you is "biased", chances are you should probably take a little break from the thread. Don't worry about calling out others--if moderators seem to be missing the thread, just call it to our attention via PM.

    Basically, if you make an effort to contribute, you won't get banned. Nothing in this post is new, nothing has changed, this is just an effort to clarify the kind of things that we've already been enforcing.
  • to tl;dr: "u mad", terms which SJWs don't like, or any other specific terms will get you banned. SO REMEMBER THAT SHITLORD!
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=386290
  • Most people like to have fun but not everyone views what is offensive and what is not the same way. While we do try to let posters say what they feel most of the time, but as a general rule of thumb racism and sexism will not be tolerated. So if your name is not red putting a disclaimer in your OP like
    “If you do not have thick skin stay out of this thread” carries no weight and you will feel the weight of the banhammer.
So now you got the basics down due to these hilarious rules, let's get to their own store. Yes, they even got their fucking store to sell their own merchandise. Pony shirts, anyone? Be sure to buy one for $18.70, neckbeards!

3. The Genius Behind The Site

http://theralphretort.com/the-tyler-malka-pictures/
http://theralphretort.com/neogaf-owner-implicated-revenge-porn-leak

And what better way to start off with this thread will be the guy who runs this beautiful forum known as Tyler Malka himself. Ever since the GamerGate drama there's a lot of shit leaked about him such as him being a rapist, banning anyone who calls out on him being a rapist, him being a sex offender and so on.



There's still more stuff from him, but his ED article should explain more than enough about him, otherwise this thread will be very long.

4. Pedophilia - Have A Seat Over Here, Please

https://www.reddit.com/r/NeoFAG/wiki/pedo_awareness

NeoGAF is also pretty notorious for having pedophiles. There's a lot of examples (see above link) but this one should do:-

https://archive.li/5RQcm

"If it helps, I have had a similar fetish since I was young (I'm female as well). I still have it to this day but it's less pronounced. My "sweet spot" is 10-14 years old, and I used to collect a lot of shota (that's boy-boy kids) porn when I was 16. I get temporary crushes on child stars both male and female from time to time. I love the look of anime characters around this age as well.

I remember one time I was 18 and living in Japan. Boys in private school uniforms wear the most ridiculously short shorts and I found myself ogling the asses of a couple of 10-year olds O_o; I shook my head and chuckled internally. I had a boyfriend a couple of years older than me, was more or less confident of my own sexuality and I knew I would never do anything appropriate to a kid so I wasn't bothered by it. I'm still not. I just consider it a humorous quirk.

I also can't understand the outrage some people have against fanfiction involving underage FICTIONAL characters in sexual situations. It's fiction for a reason. If you hate it, don't read.

So unless you find yourself WANTING to get into the pants of kiddies, I don't think you should be alarmed at all. Just my opinion, of course."

It's worth noting that Neogaf has a very very strict registration policy to prevent sock accounts and raid attempts

  • B. Registration must be performed with an Internet Service Provider, education, or workplace email address. No other types of email addresses will be accepted, including all free email addresses (@gmail), addresses tied to personal domains (@myrandomblog), addresses part of standalone paid accounts (@me), or any of a limited number of domains that have been blacklisted for abuse despite otherwise falling within the bounds of ISP/education/workplace (@aol). The approval process is manual and subject to a significant waiting period.
Meaning you must basically doxx yourself in order to register on the site. Registration is also manually approved by the administrators and there's a pretty long waitlist.

This is a big reason why developers feel safer about leaking stuff on Neogaf and why for many years it was seen as a "legitimate" place to do so. Nowadays it's just seen as a lot of extremely far left white knights in their mid 40s who spend too much time being afraid of the "riff raff" who aren't willing to reveal their identities on the internet to post on their forum.

It's essentially a forum where everyone is Moviebob

By registering you also grant them permission to leak your private messages
C. By registering an account at NeoGAF.comand participating (including but not limited to submitting posts or private messages on NeoGAF.com), you hereby grant NeoGAF LLC and our licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users, a perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable (in whole or part) worldwide license under all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy and publicity rights and other intellectual property rights you own or control to use, reproduce, transmit, display, exhibit, distribute, index, comment on, modify, create derivative works based upon, perform and otherwise exploit the messages posted or private messages sent on NeoGAF.com, in whole or in part, in all media formats and channels now known or hereafter devised, for any and all purposes including entertainment, news, advertising, promotional, marketing, publicity, trade or commercial purposes, all without further notice to you, with or without attribution, and without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or to any other person or entity.
Which is mostly on their part to avoid getting sued as part of a developer violating a non-disclosure agreement.

I heard about some being pedophiles and given a free pass but the example you give is pretty bad considering that one thing that GAF learned to like is mock users with anime avatars or bitching because any moe pandering game goes localized.

What they tolerate seems to be users with real pedophilic tendencies (in the ED article there is a quote from a deleted thread made by a mod about pedophiles being mentally diseased in the weirdly SJW guilt tripping tone that didn't fly with anyone) as long is hush-hush immediately . Way worse than a someone writting a shitty fanfic if you ask me as real pedophiles get pet while normal (if spergy) users get shammed until they leave, ignore it or convert to SJW

So, memes that are basically standard posts anywhere on the goddamned internet are banned, but people can talk about sexy children and wearing diapers.

I mean, the racism and sexism? That's not too out of place, but the shitposting is just... I dunno. I assume every large forum falls into that eventually.

How do you have both pedophiles and SJWs in the same site? How do you have a rapist run a site where SJWs make rules? I just don't get it.
Martyrdom. Someone that gets on fiction is vile and need to be mocked so one day JRPGS can n leave the moe pandering while someone that gets off in children parks is mentally ill and in need of help and look how progressive I am.

As long as you toe their party line they're totally okay with pedophiles. Sarah "Dogfucking Pedophile" Nyberg for instance.
The party line seems to be "anything the mods and the owner get touchy about". People got banned for months by defending Jace in the Wu involved shitstorm and some european SJW gets 1 week for indirectly calling Christina Hoff Sommers a "House Negroe".

Oh wow..I knew Gaf was a bit odd but I didn't know there was so much stuff going on there. Especially the pedophiles...just, wow.

Despite how weird Neogaf is, I still love their gifs. Especially around E3 time.

Also how come it seems the webmasters of alot of online communities like Bulbagarden and Gaf are rapists or something else that's terrible?

I'm watching you closely, @Null

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1048106

Alright, so since the first page is going to be nothing but jokes I'm hoping for some realness to hit on the second. It hasn't always been this bad, but let's say that recently my sexual stamina has been underwhelming. Both during sex and masturbating. I don't really care about the latter, but the former can be embarrassing for sure. I don't need to be some porn star fucking for hours on end, but I do need to step it up.

So what are some things I can do?

The people complaining about moe pandering need to play Dragon's Dogma or one of the Souls games and tell me they're "moe". Also people who jerk off in childrens' parks need their dicks cut off, while the pedofucks who are actually concerned that their tendencies can hurt other people should get help for it, even especially if it's a shovel in the face.
Of course these SJW fucks are back asswards and only care about their own image, they don't care that pedophiles are gross, creepy fucks who hurt children.

Also how come it seems the webmasters of alot of online communities like Bulbagarden and Gaf are rapists or something else that's terrible?

Null had some...history...
Just skimming NeoGAF after being taken there by Google searches revealed useful information that's gotten me past tricky parts in games. I guess gaming really is the bottom of the barrel as far as legal hobbies/interests go. It seems like if someone's doing something wonderful for the gaming scene, they're probably a sick fuck. By that logic, I wonder how many dogs Shigeru Miyamoto has hung live on meat hooks while jerking off to their cries with his Japanese microdick.
Point of this conjecture is, you can't really trust the man behind any remotely positive contribution to the gaming scene.

Well, my impression of Evilore is that is a Nouveau Riche and wants to project the image of 'coolness' while still being an awkward asshat that feels the forum posters are in his debt. Also, is obvious he doesn't believe in any of the SJW bullshit (Mumei being demodded after a fit, the cunt fiasco, how he tries to hide the logs from his travel to Europe). Many of his mods, in other hand, are this to a insane degree.
