So latecomers can see it and we can have a central discussion in a unified topic. Dont forget to check out the CE discords and spinoff site below so we can all stick together

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/6-gamefaqs-announcements/80747432

To address some concerns that have been presented to us throughout the last 18 months, we are taking some steps starting today to enhance our rules and guidelines and provide further commentary, resources, and documentation to empower our moderators and community members. By promoting consistency in moderation and addressing specific issues such as hornyposting , ban/purg evasion, and trolling we aim to create a more welcoming and inclusive space for all users.

Furthermore, while we understand the passion surrounding political discussions, we believe it is essential to maintain a focus on gaming-related content. As such, we are implementing a measure to turn the Current Events private. Every user who has visited GameFAQs in the last year and who currently has access to the board will retain access to the board. No additional users will be allowed to view or post on the board going forward. Additionally, any user who is placed in Purgatory (which is always an administrator/staff decision) will permanently lose access to the board. Additionally, political topics outside of CE will be banned.

Update: Other boards have now been closed, including the Sex, Hot Girls, and Religion boards.
Can somebody explain to me where there are Fandom wiki out there with some fairly blue content, given a game or franchises subject material, and such sites seem to get along fine. Do the same rules apply to content on such wiki as here or are there different rule threshold? Is the threshold discussions regarding controversial or blue content vs it merely existing on the site as a function of the content itself?

Does that make sense? I figure this is explained somewhere but I haven't seen it.

As the community manager, shouldn't DToast have said more than nothing before the sex and religion boards went away?

Every other move has been unannounced so why expect anything different.

This is news to me, what did CE wrong (besides trolling 24/7)

I am really curious to see what happens to the site in the next year or so. Things are definitely progressing faster now, so I could see this board being gone within the next 2 to 6 months.
the elections are gonna drain this board hard

That implies actual work.

Damn, I liked lurking the Religion board. First I'm hearing about that one being gone. There were several knowledgeable posters there that had some real good respectful discussions. Sure not everyone on there was respectful and open-minded, but overall it was a good place.

My dream is this closed board could be our own little refugee bubble, but realistically there's not time left for these boards.

The official statement was "Safety and trust, along with toxicity".

To simplify it a bit more, Toasty doxxed himself and decided to blame CE for it. In addition Toasty and Timmy said that they received death threats, which didn't originate from us, but we were blamed for that as well.
"I dreamt I was a moron."
If they DO shut down CE, spread this topic's content to the other boards and if you really want fandom to have it, give it to the banned folks too:

CE is going to be shut down for the political, horny, and trolling stuff. The latest drama is DTT got doxxed (I am not pointing fingers as they're handing out bans like candy) but it happened and the crosshairs are on CE.

This site is crashing, boys. There isn't enough interest in forums like these and the fandom money is getting agitated that it is not a hip, young adult friendly vibe/ad factory.
Since only from below can one better see the heights.

I'm closing my account when CE closes. Not giving GameFAQs any more clicks after that.

They were always going to shut the boards down. Whether we complained about it or not is irrelevant, it was always going to happen.

Toasty and Timmy both practically said it themselves.

It's been a good run guys. Nothing lasts forever. Maybe Threadzone will be the place to hang out. I just hope they update their layout. It's an eyesore.

Basically Toasty mentioned "experimental" things they're doing. Just like the whole $300k guide bounty stupidity.

And Timmy and Toasty call us the bad faith posters lol

If they shut down all the social boards at once they'd probably have a lot more moderation work to deal with.

Reduce blowback, don't make the news, if they do make the news then every shutdown so far is because they are doing something positive about bad faith users.

Wasn't religion an open social board? Those others were community boards.

Safe to assume that LifeFAQs, LGBT, and #furry will be shutdown.

After all the changes, and after 28 years its pathetic how this is how the message boards die.

The fact they killed off boards so quickly and without warning shows how little Fandom cares.

Honestly, in this day and age, "Someone doxxed me/sent death threats" is the justification for any action taken. You don't even have to prove it happened. Just be vague, say it happened, and boom; changes.

Nah, the "feedback" topic on changes showed that. Grievances aired and nothing was going to be done. A common tactic. "We hear your concerns" and then do the opposite or nothing. This clip is always the perfect show of that.

Whats stupid is you defending doxxing but keep doing that and see how it goes

Not the point.

The point is neither insults nor bootlicking will make a difference, the decision has been made.
