Mombot has found a targeted media blitz centred around a suspicious petition regarding the upcoming game Far Cry 5. The articles found thus far all appear to have dropped within a five hour window of each other, as listed here: https://ghostbin.com/paste/rvdm3

Upon some prodding around, Mombot has got into contact with a couple of journos, and an editor behind a few of the articles. He has admitted he found the petition himself, which was posted in a then-Public, now suspiciously Private Facebook group, which the average person, read: us, cannot access. Even more suspicious, it appears to be modded/admin'd by several high ranking people with the journo and games industry itself

WE MAY HAVE A SMALLER GJP ON OUR HANDS

Step 1: Timeline

http://archive.is/JHdKN

We know it was first posted on 25th May.

It was posted at least once on Reddit on 27th May.

https://archive.fo/3qTAb

But it only picked up steam today (30th May).

Smaller blogs ran it:

https://ghostbin.com/paste/rvdm3

Cogs Connected ran it first.

When did the articles drop? What minute/hour? Could someone have seen someone else's article and wrote their own in time? If the time is too short, it points towards GJP-esque groups.

Step 2: How is IGN Connected?

I don't think they are bigger than their US counterparts. I don't know why none of the usual suspects (aside from descucktoid) reported on it. I wonder if there's something more to it, like they knew it was a false flag done by IGN or even Ubisoft itself and decided to play it safe letting the smaller sites run with it

Aren't most proxies honeypots? Especially the free ones and especially the ones that you pay for. That's the rumor. And anything going across intl boundaries is getting vacuumed up by Echelon which can link your decrypted traffic to your IP-VPN connection by packet timestamps.

Ezra Levant may be interested. Of course I tried pitching Sun News on GG and other things at the time and they ignored it. Very interesting. Suspect that this DIGRA stuff is linked in with it and they have other interests they want to protect.

Simple, there's not a shitload of book released in that category.

Most books released by anyone with any kind of mainstream (or internet) presence easily hit #1. She'll almost certainly be an New York Times bestseller as well, but that doesn't necessarily equate to, say, hitting #1 on the Billboard 200.

With the abject fucking failure by the MSM to make any real, meaningful impact on big youtubers like PewDiePie, it looks like they are extending their smear campaign to YouTube via slamming Google, to an evidently much greater effect.

While I have my reservations about defending Google, this is a case where they have not done anything wrong. They simply have the scale to put MSM out of business within the next few generations.

While I don't think they will succeed in killing YouTube, they may use this event to leverage quite a bit of control over who is and isnt allowed to have video monetization, or even further control on what videos are allowed to show up on youtube.

I think this is worth a counter-operation. Question is, what can we do?.

actually I'm was/from the_donald and a bernout we'd just all universally love to see Acid get dropped in same for ultimately derailing everything, thx. (I got nuked off of KIA from getting into it with node over Hirsi Ali, it turns out his waifu is from Tunisia so he'll always attack anti-muslim anyones without question)

I just studied the language of /pol/ enough to fake it good. May've gone a bit overboard on the keyphrases though. Reading the screencap it sounds a little more Markov than I'd like.

Point being though the hate is universal., even around T_D and lpol. (who would've thought our mods were equally shit, I was expecting deranged hippies not underageb& trannies, but boy does a lot of spin since the election end make sense now, and why they started pushing out authentic activist types)

Some of the qs were authentic, though, like skinheads really did spawn from Marley-an reggae, so I was trying to fish that one anon for what his side of history sounded like. I was interested in finding out if he was one of the early ones and what sparked the change, but he didn't return before 404. By virtue of both groups of skinnies being anti-outsider it's extremely hard to find concrete info. The non-SJ/feminist leftie anons are trying to build a timeline to the corporatisation of punk, but of course by nature of the genre very little is actually 'down' anywhere, it's all in peoples' heads or floating around in a few odd 2000s and before forum posts here and there. Due to that nebulous nature, Jamaican and UK skinheads both claim to be 'the first.' Bernouts disengaged by the hundreds of thousands after the 8th, being able to show a timeline of corp-friendly SJs entering particularly large subcultures might shake off their depression and get them back into the thick of things before 2020/4. (gaming is very obviously CIA related though, the scan at http://imgur.com/JMG2hh7 exposes that one really well)

I like this man's oysters.

also thanks for that, did not know Amazon was doing similar, I guess this means the other big distros' affiliate programs aren't working out, or are being intentionally underreported to ensure they don't work out (I use an alibaba one)

I wonder if Robyn found this page because she was very quick to get direct sponsorship, while "serious" YTers are still bawling and throwing tantrums. (on top of that one of her primary sponsors is leaping onto a bit of a bubble of its own, akibento is an anime-specific loot crate, so I hope she's still looking around for more.)

Also I suspect Jimling was aware of this coming, if not through his own intuition then informed of it, hence his departure from Escapist well ahead of everyone else and early $10k follower buildup.

It's clear movieblob had no fucking clue though. I hope this spells the end of that guy.

oh hey, that bit about teachers….

I wonder if there's a way to force that bubble to burst, utilising youtube and patreon together for "alternate educational" channels

I wonder if anyone remembers my teacher salary digs from last year pre-primary. So many parts of Cali have an average salary of around $170,000 for teachers. A couple of areas that sound gated community-ish are up to $400k which is just pure insanity.

An apt description comes from a 2009 press release for "House of Game" - http://files.shareholder.com/downloads/ABEA-4UREYL/0x0x402891/0C74635B-1068-4A85-8422-FB5EB2EF7242/DTSI_News_2009_5_22_General_Releases.pdf

"Nerd Poker is a collective of creative individuals from the film, entertainment and game industries who all share a love for video games. Formed in 2006, Nerd Poker began as a group of friends who regularly played games on-line and shared an affinity for identifying progressive entertainment properties. The network has since cultivated a new and unique platform for creative projects, collaboration and business to take place between Hollywood and game creators.

House of Game presented by Nerd Poker will be the first official showcase of its kind that will bring the leading professionals from both Hollywood and video game industries together.

The founding members of Nerd Poker are Kevin Chang, Justin Marks, Ben Fritz and Derek Douglas, with partners Tom Ham, Zach Schiff-Abrams and Ford Gilmore."

That's fucking Fart. He's known more for stealing other people's work and taking credit for it, and not fact-checking his info.

That said, he may be on to something with Nerd Poker. Though from my early recollections, they started out as a group of online poker players. Likely how their nertwork formed and grew through shared interests.

Who cares who "stole" what. The important thing is to verify the information and push it out.

OP Nuke-a Laylee

ITT we discuss the means through which Kickstarter backers of Yooka Laylee can get a refund from Playtonic or Kickstarter.

In light of Playtonic's less than stellar way of dealing with any issues that Jon Tron may or may not have raised outside of Playtonic's control, many kickstarter backers have been enquiring how to get their money back. Forums are being shut down and discussion is being quashed due to the consumer/backer backlash and funder's questions have either been ignored or simply ridiculed.

This thread will be used a source from which information can be spread to the backers before it is too late. This thread will also be used to plan courses of action for such backers to take.

>The consumer laws in England, where Playtonic are based, are stricter and therefore need further enquiry.

Then if that avenue holds more potential to be more effective, great.

My main interest is seeing those customers who wish to get a refund, get their shekels back.

Yep. If there are burgers in clapistani that may benefit from an FTC thingamajigger. Great. If bongs in bongistani have a better chance using their bong laws, then of course do that.

Nominations have opened for the second Dragon Awards for Science Fiction + Fantasy:

http://application.dragoncon.org/dc_fan_awards_nominations.php

Includes categories for books, comics, TV, vidya, etc - it's free to nominate, deadline is 24th July 2017.

Dragoncon itself is 1st - 4th Sept in Atlanta - http://www.dragoncon.org/

The Hugos have opened their nominations too:

http://www.worldcon.fi/wsfs/hugo/

>Those who joined one of the qualifying conventions before the start of January will have already received their unique personalised link to make nominations. (31 January was the cutoff date to join the qualifying conventions in order to nominate; Worldcon 75 members who join after that date will be able to vote on the Final Ballot when it is announced, but will not have nomination rights.)

If you're eligible to vote you should have received your 'unique personalised link' so that link above is pretty much useless. However, this year they've changed the voting rules because reasons:

So how that will effect the final ballot we'll have to wait and see.

This year, Worldcon is in Helsinki, Finland, on 9th - 13th August:

Meanwhile, Sad Puppies 5 is led this year by author Sarah Hoyt (last year was Kate Paulk backed up by Hoyt and fellow author Amanda Green) - who's going with the idea that it's better to ditch the Hugos and focus on supporting the Dragons. After the Hugos cPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

In their ongoing bid to put themselves out of business whilst simultaneously boosting indie sales, traditional book publishers have started hiring 'sensitivity readers' to edit books before going to print. These are not proofreaders or copy editors looking for punctuation or grammatical errors etc, these are super-special snowflakes looking for content that might be offensive.

Heat Street - http://archive.is/cu8cS

Literary Hub - http://archive.is/bR6MM

Not sure if the books will then feature 'Sensitively Edited' on the cover - a sure sign not to buy if they do. Once again it's just publishers bowing to socjus pressure. Be wary of this shit seeping into comics, game dev, etc. Btw, ask a snowflake and they'll say it's not censorship.

At last! Having a gender studies degree could get you a job after all.

I'd be all for it if it was "accuracy readers" who help an author get confusing aspects of a culture they're not part of to be more correct.

Of course, the SJWs can't even implement a good idea without making it sound and feel like a repressive, censorious powerplay.
