      Welcome former GAFers!   10/21/2017

      I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome any and all "refugees" from NeoGAF who may have discovered our humble little site as a result of the ongoing "situation" over at NeoGAF.   Feel free to check us out and if you like, join our small but interesting community!

      So you're new to DayOnePatch - please read this!   10/21/2017

      First of all, a warm, hearty WELCOME to DayOnePatch - we're REALLY pleased to have you here!   I mean that most sincerely!   Our site was founded in late 2010 when a bunch of people from the IGN forums got sick and tired of IGN being IGN and decided to create a brand new community under the name BadCartridge.  We operated under that name for a few years until there was a change in ownership which resulted in a change to the current name that we have now.  Since then, we've had a couple of owners before I assumed ownership of the site in mid-2016 and here we are today.   I guess I'd better say a word or two about our rules.  Look, here's the deal:  you are probably a sentient human being with a modicum of social skills so you probably have an idea of what is acceptable to say to another sentient human being with a modicum of social skills.  If what you are about to post gives you some pause as to whether you would say in in real life, then you probably shouldn't post it.  In other words, DON'T. BE. AN. ASSHOLE.  It's not that hard!  While we have a damned fine mod team, all disciplinary actions are ultimately my decision as the Supreme High Chancellor (catchy title, eh?  I came up with it myself!) of DayOnePatch.   Now that the unpleasant stuff is over, let's talk about the great things we have.  Well, we have a very semi-regular podcast!   We LOVE having members of our community as guests on the podcast, so if you don't mind having your voice transmitted to DOZENS of people, then let us know if you'd like to be a guest.   We have a Discord server for you to chat in -real-time of if you want to use the voice-chat capabilities for games or just shoot the breeze.  We have two requests: (a) PM me for an invite to the server. (b) If your Discord name is different than your D1P name, then you MUST tell me your Discord name before you receive an invite.   We have a Steam Community Group! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/day1patch# Yes, I know the title still says "Bad Cartridge" and that's because Valve doesn't allow name changes to Steam groups because Valve is stupid.   But the thing that I'm most proud of is the Announcement that you see at the top of the page.  http://www.dayonepatch.com/index.php?/announcement/40-d1p-2017-charity-campaign-for-the-life-you-can-save-1690-as-of-september-8-2017/ For this year, this community has donated nearly $1,700 to organizations that are trying to improve the lives of people in the developing world.  It is a true testament to the character of the individuals of this community that they've given to this project (as well as many, many others) freely and without expectation of anything in return.  Because of this, I'm honored and humbled to be a part of this community.   In closing, we're really glad you're here (feel free to bring other friends too!) and let's have a helluva lot of fun!

  1. Golf Story is indie GOTY

    Do they have plans to port this to other consoles or PC? I'm surprised an indie game would be 100% exclusive to a console. Looks great, both being a throwback and doing something different with its golf battles.
  2. Gawd, it's so pitiful. >___> I'm assuming he may be pretty wealthy after all the ads he received from a site that was worth $10 million, though.
  3. Welcome former GAFers!

    I just tried it, and first, it's surreal seeing the boards but not being able to click on anything. And the latter MAY be a problem, but maybe you'll get lucky!
  4. It's sad for me to think about: He must have been the guy running the ModBot account Saturday, so I wonder what was going through his head first when the mods started leaving, then when he made up that they wanted to leave because of privacy concerns, then when he pretty much modded by himself (maybe a few other mods stayed? I dunno) and kept locking threads and asking people to be patient... this is definitely not how he was expecting to spend his weekend. And he no longer looked in a position of power behind that ModBot but came off looking bad to nearly everyone. I don't mean sad as in I feel bad for him if this is a pattern of his and he took advantage of someone, but the whole situation is just sad to me.
  5. Welcome former GAFers!

    Hey RefuGAF, reach out to @SunhiLegend on twitter and see if he can share his awesome gifs here!
  6. That may be right, although there's that 2012 ass-grabbing story in Spain "to show he wasn't a mark" that I think has people rush to judgment. I think the irony is that it would be prudent to wait for his side of the story, but the culture he fostered on the board ran contrary to it. People were banned for asking that people wait for more info regarding sexual harassment stories. But strangely enough, this thread where he banned people who disagreed with him and cussed out a user was him warning against a witch hunt in that story in the thread. So it's like... he may be the kind of guy who urges patience, but it's not the environment he created with all the bans to people for seemingly offensive jokes. From what I read on Kotaku, many mods were set to leave multiple times before but chose to carry on for the good of the board, so there could be even more we don't know besides the 2012 story he shared about him in Spain.
  7. 21 episodes into Star Trek: The Next Generation

    On the first episode of Season 7.
  8. BTW, in that last link that gets you to the thread, look at the last page. What a bump.
  9. In one thread, a NeoGAF poster uploaded screencaps of another woman’s #MeToo post, involving allegations about a film journalist. Malka asked, “No evidence at all? No corroborating testimony? No behavioral red flags?,” adding, “So far this is nothing like other recent industry scandals.” Later, after receiving pushback from posters who found his initial comment callous, Malka described posters’ immediate support of the #MeToo post as “witch hunts,” adding that it will take time for the allegations’ veracity to be proven. Several vocal critics of Malka’s approach say they were banned. One of Malka’s posts responding to a ban read, “Fuck off, dipshit. That enough toxic masculinity for you? I was moderating my platform, not going to bat for Dr. Neckbeard.” This is the thread it happened, and you can browse this one.
  10. Welcome here, though! I know about all the big indie threads. Not a fan of the moderation, but it'd be a pity if it did go. One of my friends thinks GAF will be back but was temporarily taken down so the narrative didn't spiral out of his control. Instead it's now diluted among many places instead of going lightning-fast on GAF. I'm very curious as to what will happen should it return. But as I've said, if GAF returns, I'll see what happens and check on the OTs I post in, but as I did before, I'm still posting here, and I hope RefuGAF makes a good home as well, even if GAF returns and you want to post there again!

    Timescape is an interesting mystery and concept.
  12. 21 episodes into Star Trek: The Next Generation

    Oh, you didn't! I saw him on the season listings in each picture starting in Season 3, and that's when I had that realization.
  13. Welcome former GAFers!

    I remember ya! Don't leave this time or else. *locks door*
  14. I'm in the first town meeting someone at the cafe, so I'm super early. I don't even know about cases in this game, but I guess I'll see it eventually.
  15. Ex: if you're quoting that Lee Atwater (Bush 88 campaign manage) line in regards to the Southern Strategy. It's fitting. It's also why many people didn't want to be patient when ModBot (I assume Evilore was the only one using it yesterday since the other mods were leaving) asked people to wait for the statement: there's no patience for users, there's no explanation users can give before one of their threads gets locked, so why should many reciprocate?
