Mate, whats the problem? If you think this place is "shit" dont post here. If you think its cliquey, dont post here.

Making bitchy comments about HairyArses and Peej's efforts, plus the contributions here by people who you used to have happily conversations with really is a bit out of order. Signing up for an account and posting there is taking the piss.

So some people left, and some people post on two. Thats really none of your business, and your constant bitching about it is doing nothing other than raising awareness of it, which considering you think its "shit" I'm surprised you want to do.

Oh and dont make it out that some of us got bored of EG because of newcomers. I'm pretty certain that doesnt apply to any of us other than when it comes to idiots. Its not that straightforward a reason, and quite frankly, I'm saddened that you think so little of some of your fellow forumites that you dismiss people moving to another forum as being just down to some aggrophobic tendencies.

But bearing in mind, it's an open forum and MT/FS/MOT seems like a decent bloke apart from those comments about this place :)

I've not seen his comments here, though I could see from EG he was a bit miffed about the time of the migration / rotjicide.

Played live with him once, maybe twice and he seemed a very nice chap.

Anyway, what Furbs said, basically. A couple of Eg-ers have done a damn impressive job here, and the posting culture is really upbeat. Feel the love!

Edit: ah, so his posts were in the EG forum, I see.

I really don't understand the "shit" comments, and if this boils down to some weirdness about you not getting an invite (in fact very few people got an invite, and basically it took us emailing a few people - and a lot of word of mouth to get people here and they came of their own volition, no one was press ganged) so if you're feeling a bit put out because you weren't invited F_S, don't be daft. You know there's no hint of anything that petty or shite.

FWIW (probably nothing) this site has been here for nearly 2 years now, it's been subtly pimped by a few of us for about as long as that too, and the recent forum testing and commissioning is just another part of that.

The fact that people came here for one reason or another, and they've stayed around makes those of us who've worked hard to get some sort of a site together feel like we weren't at least pissing in the breeze the whole time.

I am fed up to the back teeth with the "us and them" shit though, and I know Raups is probably a bit pig sick of it too. If you don't like what we're doing here, or you think this place is too cliquey, then carry on the good work over at the EG forum. Just don't run us down for basically putting a site together in our spare time with bugger all money and no hint of selling ourselves to any sponsorship deal/advertising deal that's been waved under our noses. Ta.

Don't understand how he still manages to delude himself into thinking this is somehow about an old regulards clique. As if there aren't lots of people who post here, too, who weren't very long on EG at all.

Silly guy.

Exactly. If it was supposed to be a clique site, wouldn't we just stop new signups and kill off the registration bit?

Seriously F_S, we've never had a ruck or an argument before and I don't think you've got owt against Rich / Hairyarse either so what's the beef?

Does anyone have a link to the supposed bitching so I can make my own mind up for myself? I though Fruit_Salad at first got it into his head that this place was invite only and cliquey as fuck. I then thought that he'd actually come and had a look and changed his mind and was fitting right in. Has something happened today to change that?

They only thing I've seen was a post in the "Downtime" thread on EG. But his reply to me about why AATG existed (clueless, me) was pretty civil.

Nah just a bit of a reshuffle apparently according to Raups' post on EG.

Fair enough Hairy. Today was the first I had heard of AATG and had no idea really. Its nice to see some of the old faces here, but I don't think there needs to be an "us and them". From what I can see most will use both anyway. Everybody's happy.

That's the thing Dougs - there is no us and them. The only people who are whispering stuff like that are the people who don't post here 'cos they think they need to know the secret handshake to get in. When actually it's not like that at all.

It would be wrong of me to actively promote AATG on EG, especially as a mod. Which probably explains why you've only just heard about it now. The people that are here only heard about the site through word of mouth.

Rauper and I are both extremely frustrated and annoyed at the constant bitching and suggestion that there's anything sinister going on. Oh and by the way, he's a registered user here and reads all this stuff.

It's just all so un-necessary.

Y'know, the clique that "doesn't exist" WINK WINK.

And there's the crux of the matter.

Anyway, nice site mate, well done to all involved. :)

I must admit, whilst posting on both and enjoying them both, I'm not happy about either of the names for going to geekmeets.

At the last Eurogamer meet at the City of York (last years one before Christmas, might not have been the last one) I went to the bar and asked if he knew where the "eurogamer crowd was". Unfortunately he mis-heard me and thought I said "Euro gays" and gave me a very strange look. Wearing a pink tie probably didn't help matters.

Now I've also got the option of going to an AATG meet as well and having someone not hear me correctly and think that I'm asking "All About The Gays".

I'm just pleased Witchking was there to bale me out and buy me a drink! ;o)

There's a forum beyond that, too. And a forum beyond that. Each time, the level of secrecy increases.

There's many levels of secrecy. Rumour has it the top forum, and this is very hush hush, is run by Satoshi Tajiri, founder of Game Freak.

OMG.

You think that's bad - first ever geekmeet I went to I had to ask the barmaid where the "Eurogamer Meet" was and she said "What Euro Gay Men Meet?"

Eventually you get to the forum that, when you post on it, it eats itself like a giant ouroboros.

And then there's the secret MSN Messenger network where we all speak in code. Nope, not l33t code, one we invented just for the purpose of bitching about the forum within the forum within the forum of AATG.

See, I've not made it along to a meet yet, but the first thing I would do would be to get someone's mobile and call them when getting to the pub. Surely that makes more sense!
