Talk:Gamergate controversy[edit]

The GG article isn't really the best place to talk about this. Please don't be surprised or offended if that section gets deleted or hatted. If you have specific content issues with the articles that you mentioned the talk pages for those respective articles are better places to go. If you're afraid of how editors will respond to your concerns, just keep WP:AGF in mind and if you need advice on how to deal with disputes try WP:EAStrongjam (talk) 17:28, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Worse - I was just accused of committing a serious BLP violation, and my post was removed in a manner that I find very, very insulting. My comment pertained more to the atmosphere of the article and the gender debate, which is so caustic as to drive several well-intentioned users away from participating in it.

To answer your question more directly, I have no idea what the scope of this article is. Should we not cover Sarkeesian and Feminist Frequency in some level of depth? She is an extremely important figure in the GamerGate controversy. Kurtis (talk) 20:31, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
Article is already too long dealing with just the Gamergate controversy and attempts are being made to trim it. More in-depth coverage of the involved parties is best left to their articles. — Strongjam (talk) 20:44, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
Well yes, but there should be some sort of summary about it on Gamergate. Feminist Frequency and Tropes vs. Women is an important element of the controversy and deserves a fair amount of coverage. The problem is that the editing environment is corrosive, which impacts our ability to collaborate effectively. Kurtis (talk) 20:49, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Alright, thanks for the heads-up. I was already aware of the sanctions, but I guess it's all the better to make the notice official just for future reference. Kurtis (talk) 21:21, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
