Forums that got fucked

Post by ban » Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:59 am

We all probably lurked in various forums before coming here and even DHI 1.0 but did any of the forums you liked to hang out got fucked? Usually by either an influx of new members or by the assimilation tactics of new members slowly creeping in, ousting the older guys and then commandeering the forum and making it a no fun allowed zone(and unsurprisingly find out they are all connected to reddit, etc with the very same names)? And I'm talking about new forums that sprung up, I'm talking about forums that do have quite the history behind them, up to 10+ years.

I'd say gamefaqs but the board section there was always /v/ lite, the only thing missing is the pics and if a board is batshit insane it's due to people not caring enough to give shit to loonies. The one forum that did get fucked brutally was the DMC forum the moment the DmC trailer hit. In modern years it's unrecognisable and worst of all, some it's *new* key members were mods and admins on the Dissidia forums which was an even worse place and basically one of the reasons Dissidia in the west was no fun for everyone.

There are more but that's for another time.

One of the first forums I was ever part of was the essgaypissed. Purely because that was right when yahtzee started to be popular and he made the switch to their forum. The old forum used to be a lot more chill before Piss Potts, Susan Arendt and other assholes took over. Even though some of them (most) are gone now, the draconian policies still probably exist. I barely ever check up on the website, but whenever I look at a thread, I see shitloads of banned accounts. They ban people for having opinions they disagree with.

I used to be a member of KoeiWarriors(ever since its inception) until I was shadowbanned along with a lot of people when a mod-admin shake-up took place after the old guard left. Basically the place looked like plebbit already from 2013-2015, with the forum even implementing a polidicks thread that's more alive that the vidya threads, yaoi fuckwads and furryyiffers came in droves and shat the place up.

Oh wait, those are from FagEra's subnautica thread. :lol: I'd say it's different but the draconian measures, anal anihilation of the mods and general faggotry are about those levels nowadays.

I think you mean Something Awful instead of Reddit, unless you mean SRS (who are also goons). Goons love doing that shit for some reason, it's like some initiation after paying your 10bux.

I can remember three places in particular. In 2006 the Gamespot forums were overrun with 360 fanboys banning the ever loving shit out of anyone who said something pro-PS3 for petty, shitty reasons. If you got a little heated they would give you week long bans while the 360 fanboy jack-offs were hostile as fuck and were getting no bans by the nazi mods (they were saying hilariously dumb shit like how the PS3 would be dead within a year).

Another one was the PS3 section of the Gametrailers forums, which became a thing because a LOT of people fled the ever loving shit out of the gamespot forums and their Micro$oft shill mods. In 2007 it wasn't all that bad a place to talk about games and upcoming releases for the PS3 without the frothing idiots screaming about how the PS3 had no games while they played Zelda on the Wii and Gears of War on the 360 and nothing else (that console generation only got good in late 2007). The problem though was when that fucking Killzone 2 trailer came out with actual gameplay. Suddenly it was overrun with fanboy retards like any other gaming forum and a lot of the good users started disappearing.

Another one was a Rugby League forum I went to. Most of the other ones are full of low IQ spazzes but this one had great fucking banter (in particular between Souths and Roosters fans, and everyone against the Broncos fans who are a special bunch :lol: ) and a fun user base to talk league with. Then I come back after the off season and some new prick has bought the site that no one read and fucked the forums up entirely with some terrible, unreadable layout that makes reddit's design look cutting edge. All the users had fucked off and when I tried to find alternatives they were all fucking shit.

Dunno if they also have connections there as well but I wouldn't be surprised at all. But :tenbux: is too much for me so I never even approached that cancerhole. :lol: Which SRS are we talking about? I meant what I wrote, I found a lot of plebbit users with either the same or exact same name popping up in every imagineable site, for example there was this one sperger in the Fire Emblem Warriors board on Gamefaqs. I go to serene's forest to get some guides and translations and he's also there with other familiar names, also see him lurking at the Fire Emblem board on KW. This goes one for other users of similar boards so I investigated a bit on reddit and what do you know, found them all from there. They even use the same arguing tactics and terminology.

I remember that on Gamespot, steered clear of the forums for a good while after I made an account on the joint server that Gfaqs and GSpot had back in the day before they moved my account to Gfaqs after the "brand split".

The FilmForceForum that became the IGN boards that were eventually locked behind a paywall, forcing everyone to move to The Vestibule, aka teh Vesty, way back in the day. I haven't been back in like fifteen years but I'm assuming it's controlled by an army of shave-headed dykes agitating for gun control or some gay lib shit, just like every other board in the world.

WEW LAD! That's some severe case of powertripping if I've ever seen one. Real professional conduct for a company to have as well.
I bet it's going to really pay off when thousands of transfags and SocJus troopers are going to buy their broken EA game. Oh wait, those don't buy games. Well, A+ for effort anyway. :lol:

That forum was fucked from the very start. It's basically a bowl that collected all the toxic sludge from NeoGAF with even less self awareness and no Shower Gropeman to reel them back down a bit.

The tenbux was worth it when they had the file sharing forums (they had 3, porn, music/movies, and warez) all hosted on very good torrent trackers that still exist to this day. As soon as they shut down is when the traffic to the site started to dip haha.

You'll notice most of the loudest idiots on the internet are the type who are on a dozen platforms at any given time, often transsexual, less often pedophiles, always goons.

Doomworld. I was a member for twelve years and was banned after old management (a goon) decided to come back to run the place in a new direction. The place has become an SJW tranny ground. In fact most of the classic members have been banned for essentially a new left-leaning community.
