About

NeoGAF is a gaming news site run by Tyler Malka, aka EvilLore. It has been superseded by Resetera after allegations of sexual harassment were leveled against Malka.


Pre-Gamergate

Wizardchan

After Zoe Quinn accused the Wizardchan user base of harassing her, NeoGAF banned users who defended Wizardchan.

Gamergate

  • On or around September 11, NeoGAF banned the account of The Fine Young Capitalists.
  • On October 8, 2014, Treemasterx was banned from the NeoGAF forums for asking opponents of the Gamergate investigation to justify their position. The ban message was "You are a poor fit for NeoGAF." Treemasterx's final post before being banned was:
What I mean is that there are people who want to make "Cool" Female Characters, but people like Anita Sarkisian want a character to fit into all their check boxes. Woman, Check. No boobs, check. Black, check. Strong, check.

Instead of filling all these checkboxes, just make an interesting or "Cool" Female Character. Someone who has a personality and someone who we care about.

On October 12, Boogie2988 was banned for discussing Gamergate.

Related controversies

In 2012, Malka gloated about having groped a woman and banned any users who publicly disapproved of his act.

On September 20, 2014, The Ralph Retort accused NeoGAF of selling user-generated content to Gawker and not sharing any of the profits with the user. NeoGAF denied receiving payment for the article.

In February 2015, Evilore removed another moderator from NeoGAF after an argument about whether or not it's transphobic to not be attracted to trans women. [1]

Amirox banning lolicon despite it being legal in the US, and having been arrested for possession of real child pornography... [citation needed]

On October 21, 2017, following a sexual harassment scandal involving Tyler Malka, most of its moderation staff resigned, and many users posted demands to be banned from the forum. It ended up with website being shut down. However, it was restored later after suspending the off-topic sections of the board, and announcing that politics would henceforth be a prohibited subject of discussion and that moderation would become anonymous.
