'''Member Etiquette'''
 
 
 
According to the ResetEra forums, they value inclusivity and seeks to prove a welcome space for those that want to discuss video games and more. They don't tolerate behavior or language that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or maliciously exclusionary regarding identity.
 
 
 
1. '''Posting Etiquette''' - '''Please be Polite''': Please be respectful and polite when posting in threads. This includes when addressing other users and when posting about the topic at hand. You can post in a thread without making it personal or insulting other users. Impolite posting, using improper grammar, and spelling is frowned upon here. Consistently low quality posts can lead to a ban. <ref> ResetEra FAQs (archive) -[https://web.archive.org/web/20180420211833/https://www.resetera.com/threads/general-faq.9777/]</ref>
 
  
'''Use text Options Responsibly''' - We presently allow posters access to a variety of text options including size, color, and font. Please do not abuse these to make obnoxious or visually distracting replies. '''Please note that the color red is exclusively reserved for Moderators and Administrators when they are posting in an offical capacity'''. Misusing the red text will result in a warning.

'''Users and Creators''' - As a ResetEra user, it's important to understand that video games are being created by different developers working with different budgets and technology on different systems for different publishers, who try to strike a lucrative balance between business and art. Of course, it is frustrating that a highly anticipated project turns out to be under your expectations, but remember that there are actual people working on these games that have a life outside of video games and are passionate about what they do. Claiming that an entire studio is "lazy" is not only disrespectful but also very naive and uninformed. If we are lucky we get to learn about the stories behind these products, but other than that it helps to understand that this is an industry that is fueled by money, sweat, and passion. No matter how disappointed you are, please try to understand people from the industry, and don't pin anybody down on one project that didn't go as you wished.

The same goes for people who are covering the video games industry: vilifying an entire media outlet for any reason is typically unhelpful. It is crucial to understand that these people share a similar high passion for this hobby as you do and try their best to do their jobs. These outlets are not monoliths but groups of people that keep changing over the years. None of them are perfect and while reasoned discussion is always welcome, try to refrain from dismissing a website or magazine for petty reasons.

Do Not Argue in Bad Faith: Honest dissent and debate is generally welcome.

About

Resetera is a video games forum founded by former members of the NeoGAF forum, after allegations of sexual harassment against the owner of NeoGAF Tyler Malka led to a mass exodus of moderators and users seeking a replacement forum. Before its creation, the community used Discord chat servers to organize itself.

The ResetEra forum is based on the XenForo forum platform. Security has been an important focus of the forum's administrators and developers in anticipation of potential disruptions from GamerGate and alt-right communities.

Within the first week, ResetEra had over 25,000 active members and over 300,000 posts.[1]

Role in Gamergate

Kotaku's review about Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is protected by the mods.[2]

ResetEra will ban anyone who says ANYTHING POSITIVE about Daniel Vavra, a pro-Gamergate developer who made Kingdom Come: Deliverance, even saying that he designed a good game will even result in an instant ban.[3] Since they aren't please that a "racist and sexist" Gamergator's game sold better in its' first weekend.[4]

Some time in February, ResetEra got Chylinski, a Subnautica's sound designer, fired.[5] By digging through his tweets and finding that he was trolling and even retweeted Paul Joseph Watson. [6] [7][8]

During the ArenaNet incident about Jessica Price and 's firings, they imploded over it and a lot of people were ban, including the one who started the discussion.[9]

In October 23, 2018, some of the members of ResetEra just doxxed some CD Projekt RED/GOG employees because of a tweet that was posted in Twitter hashtag that was already politically charge, this also made numerous game journalists team up with ResetEra calling for the game company to fire the social media managers.[10]

In June 2019, Celine.D.Sykes was invited by LordKano due to private messaging to ResetEra's discord to see the magic behind the scenes, since it's a "super secret club." It was then that she discovered that there's disturb, dangerous people, and even those that are pedophile apologists lurking in the bowls of ResetEra.[11]

After the expose when word gotten out that some of the ResetEra's higher ups are part of a pedophile ring, they respond that it's a "nothingburger" and that people are overreacting after the expose. But their friends in Reddit, Twitter, and other social medias went on to ban anyone who brings it up.[12][13] ResetEra themselves even shut down a thread that's made in good fate about the pedoring and asking for more information about this incident, one of the forum submitters even advises that "Shutting down the thread isn't the right way to go about it."[14][15][16]
