In a sudden turn of events, we can see that Neogaf is still down on Monday October 23 meaning that the outage hours ago was no coincidence. There are now fears that Neogaf could be dead forever with no replacement in site for gamers.
If you go to the Neogaf.com website you will be met with the message ‘Error 503 Service Unavailable’ and this has been the status for the last 24 hours.
There are allegations of sexual harassment against the Neogaf owner Tyler Malka, who goes by the username ‘Evilore’ and it’s been a trending topic on social media ever since the downtime, with gamers unsurprisingly wanting to know what’s going on.
You can see evidence of some of the claims over on Twitter here, as it’s obviously a very delicate situation right now and still very much an ongoing incident.
We can see that many gamers are saying that it is a ‘good’ thing that Neogaf is down due to the aggressive culture that some say goes on there, while others will obviously miss the good side of Neogaf which is genuine gaming discussions among fans.
