Eh, what we need to do is come up with a viral youtube meme about the Escapist. Then it will never die, at least for a year or two until it stops being funny.

Weird as that period was around the time I left, and today I randomly decided to look back after years of life shifting in other directions, to find out about this. Couldn't remember my old account if my life depended on it; didn't post much, mostly lurked.IceForce said:Because this site was tainted and became damaged goods after Gamergate. That's why.HK_01 said:Does anyone know why the Escapist was gutted like this? It seemed to me to be one of the most well-known videogaming-related sites with some of the best content producers out there, so why was it decided to let everyone go, stop producing everything except the flagship format and let the site itself rot? It just seems like such a strange decision.tippy2k2 said:http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/6.1024592-An-Open-Letter-to-The-Escapist-Community
Although even the letter is partially outdated as the Community Content is essentially dead in the water as most of us have lost our ability to post news and articles (which is why I stopped doing the "New Game Releases" [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/171046-New-game-releases-for-the-week-of-December-17-2017] if anyone was wondering).
