NeoGAF Owner Under Fire for Alleged Sexual Misconduct, Future Of Site Uncertain

NeoGAF Owner Under Fire for Alleged Sexual Misconduct, Future Of Site Uncertain”

At the time of writing, NeoGAF is offline, throwing up a 503 Service Unavailable error.

NeoGAF is offline after its owner Tyler "Evilore" Malka has had sexual assault allegations thrown at him, with Malka stepping down and the future of the site in serious jeopardy. At least 11 admin and moderator staff have left the site, as have a large number of NeoGAF's regular users.

Sexual assault allegations have been swirling around Malka for the better part of the week after a screenshot of a Facebook post was made public. Gaining the right to post on the site took time, and not everyone was allowed in.

Of the sexual assault variety. Allegations of such behaviour had also surfaced in 2012.

While USGamer reports that NeoGAF is preparing a statement on the issue, nothing has been distributed as yet. This is quite sensational due to the fact that NeoGAF has very strict regulations on what you can post, so it's quite incredible to see 100s of these posts go up within a matter of hours.

As the chaos continued, numerous forum's moderators also began to distance themselves from the site, staging what some Internet users are claiming was a "walk out".

"I don't know how the site will continue considering everyone who worked on it has left". Discord servers have become a subtitute for many (including myself) to traditional games forums, with communities able to set up new hubs of activity quicker and easier than ever before, as well as moderate more effectively than previously possible.
