I am also very happy we managed to keep the retro-threads alive, as many others have said, gaf was way too negative and i mostly posted with you guys in retrogaf anyways. But i know a few people who browsed or only occasionally posted in retrogaf, not bothering going here because they are primarily modern gamers - and thus staying on resetera instead. I am also worried we might not get many new members when we are on our own board, even though this thread kinda proved that point void. And the ghetto of community didnt bring many people either.
Lastly, i kinda liked the “siege” mentality that developed among retro gaffers, and it was fun seeing fellow retro-gaf member engaged in discussion at gaming side and such since i would more or less agree with them. Also, how are we going to get new “sonic was never good”-jokes now?
So i guess i all in all miss gaf a bit, even though i really hated the moderation there, all the trolls and the way we were treated. But im superhappy this community survived.
