Whatever happened to our buddy who was trying to leave his home country for Canada? Time is so weird that I can't remember if that took place here or back at the old place.

Anyway, still find this place to be a second home even if it infuriates me sometimes and I get temp banned. Hoping for a bright future for ERA.

SweetNicole I understand we as non-prominent members may not think of all the cool features the team has in mind, but I would like to beg in the most respectful but desperate manner possible: Would you please consider soliciting feedback from the community as a whole before the new version rolls out?

I remember in the very first days of Era how one of the coolest things was how open the development team was, and how we even got to vote in a poll about one of the interface decisions. To me, that encapsulates one of the core values Era was founded on.

Thanks for the hard work everyone has put in, and please let me know if any assistance would be appreciated on the development front.
I have no answer for you right now beyond the fact that we're aware of the concern. We'll have more to announce regarding ResetEra 2.0 later.

I'm curious SweetNicole...and this might be a dumb question...what does a Mod Captain do exactly?
Mod captains are the administrators who specifically oversee and manage the moderation team. If you ever have a question about anything moderation wise, mod captains are generally the people you want to contact. They also oversee the handling of our longer bans. Whenever you see a ban for duration pending, that ban is placed in a queue. Mod captains are the ones who manage that queue, reviewing each duration pending and determining the appropriate length for the ban. Hope that answers your question!

If I wasn’t sure this was the forum for me, recognition of one of my favorite gaming side users engaging in Dreamcast Porno Party’s seals the deal.

On a more serious note involving krejlooc I seriously recommend checking out his posts in the thread about that Amico system, where he drops some seriously informative and heavy technical knowledge on the bullshit claims about “dedicated 2D technology”.

Thread itself's on the old site. I think they're still waiting for a response, though. I wish them the best.

I remember crying during the Gaf fallout, feeling so oddly... lost. And being certain I'd never have anything like that again.

But I never expected a phoenix. Let alone a phoenix that could rise so fast and shine so bright.

Happy Birthday, Resetera, you miracle child. Here's to many more ~

Happy birthday ERA. Congrats to the new mods (and newly promoted admin)!

All this newsletter really did was make me upset my username isn't as (and will neve be) cool as "Buttzerker."

Such a shame you will perish over this
JFC... I can't stop seeing that avatar saying that quote to me in my head now. Incoming nightmares.

I feel like I've been on Era for a lot longer than a year, but I think that's mostly just a testament to how thorough the transition was. Bringing such a huge percentage of the community over (eight thousand registrees in the first day and 30,000 in like the first week) was remarkable. The events of those several days last October definitely stand out prominently in my memory, despite 2018 feeling like it's gone on forever. I'm still incredibly grateful to JershJopstin, Knuckle Sandwich, and skittzo0413 for taking the lead in helping so many of us who weren't part of any community Discords get verified, and to the mods and community on Slaent for sheltering us in the interim. Big thanks to everyone who got this place set up and keeps it running, too. The past year has been one of the best since I first became active in this community in 2012, and I look forward to many more with everyone here!

A Life Threatening Illness, A Community, and A Dream

What began as a sad thread about Talal being told by doctors that he had only weeks to live transformed into one of the most extraordinary examples of the ResetEra community banding together. With the life of a fellow member on the line, the community remarkably raised the funds to cover the entire cost of his treatment. As a result, long beyond eights week later, Talal is still alive today with his illness is in remission.

Thank you Talal for being brave enough to share such emotional news with the community, for fighting through treatment, and for keeping us in your thoughts every step of the way. Thank you to every member of the community who donated to help Talal or offered well wishes. And thank you to BobLoblaw who went above and beyond to help Talal receive his funds and start his treatment on time. Congratulations again on the remission Talal!
For all my various frustrations with Era and its community, this was and continues to be really fucking special

Hmmm...Era is one year old. I was really sad when GAF died and really thought it was just...over. I was linked back to one of the final threads I engaged in on GAF the other day and looked over some of my last posts. I was going to miss people I'd met. I had no idea how I was going to go about getting gaming news, enthusiast impressions, and information about games I'd never even heard about. Vena posted a link to the Fire Emblem discord in the Media Create thread and I copied that link just before GAF went dark. I tried it the next day and ZhugeEx in the resulting Sales discord gave us assurances that yes, something was being worked on. Eventually, I joined a bunch of other discords and my friends from the RPG community found me and we started our own discord. It was a bonding experience, all of us sharing in the craziness of the moment and trying to gather as many of our stranded friends as possible. Landing in Era was an immensely cathartic moment, seeing old faces and confirming that, yes, they had also landed was similarly cathartic. I was extremely invested in early Era.

Over the year, my use patterns have shifted and become more restricted largely because of how we moved here, namely the community discords drove me towards the community threads. That shift grew over time, with "watched" becoming my default Era address over the front page.

It also has resulted in a shift mostly back to discord (and further from the front page). There was sort of a golden period for the community threads in early Era--people were excited and engaged with the threads, but they slowed down. For one thing, the sense of a new community cooled down. I cooled down slower than the thread, so there was a bit of anguish there :(. For another, it is kind of difficult to always have something to say wrt a community thread's topic and discord is a more proper venue for just shooting the shit in between "on-topic" conversations. The RPG community that started on GAF and grew through the community thread here and its subsidiaries is dear to me and I enjoy spending time with them.

The front page has also not, ultimately, held much of my attention: I like forums. I like their archival capacity, both with respect to browsing other's posts and with respect to storing my own. I find writing my thoughts down extremely helpful towards drawing out how I feel about games and remembering them. I like their potential for long form communication, if usually unrealized. I like being able to encounter both old and new faces with regularity. Era frustrates my hopes at times, but it remains something I ultimately choose to believe in and hope for its betterment.

Been enjoying ERA. I was a long time gaf lurker, who started to post more frequently just before the sites demise. It was sad to lose that community/source for news and information.

I briefly thought the community would just vanish, but was very happy to see ERA rise like a phoenix from the ashes. I missed the boat on the discords, and wasn't able to join until the 27th. I was just happy to be back, and just in time for Super Mario Odyssey!

I'll never forget the forming of this site. I was at Disney world waiting in line constantly checking for any updates as to where we were migrating to. It was something to behold
 
Wow, one year! One year since I spent my every woken hour in that discord. Although it was amazing, it was nice to get a life back when the floodgates to the site opened.
And this just made the remember the probably million “Affryugfdttruiurrg” every time, I think it was Nicole teased with “just a moment” when it was close. Good days, I miss the emojis though.

I barely post, but I remember how it felt to have our community be torn apart and so happy when they found a way to make this happen. I'll never forget how anxious it felt when so many of us became refugees in various discords, wondering what we were gonna do with the old place in flames and it's head elf the unfortunate face of our community. I was even more worried for those who depended on this community more than me, seeing groups like Mental Health abruptly without their circle of support, and others outside of there who have lost their personal oasis in this crazy digital world.

I was happy to have a home back on the 'net, and even though I wasn't compelled to post for myself, at the beginning I was happy to help with the Adopt-A-Thread when only certain users had the ability to post since ERA was so new.

Looking forward to what goodies 2.0 will bring. I love how ERA updates and betters itself; I think the visual and utility stagnation of the old place was what I disliked about it the most. I know so many people are gonna bitch about 2.0, but there's no brakes on this train.

Happy 1 year, ERA.

A little crosspost from the other thread:

Happy Birthday, ResetERA!

A year ago to the day, as I migrated from the old country to the new, The Official ResetERA Mascot, Lilith Mae, migrated into the world:


Furiously refreshing mobile internet just out of shot

Here’s the little punk today:


Tormenting children with dress up is one of life’s rare pleasures

ResetERA will inexorably be linked to the birth of my second and will always hold a special place in my heart.

Happy birthday, you beautiful swines!
