The Zoe Post

In the post, Eron outlines that Zoe displayed what others would later note was a general pattern of abuse against him -- actions in contrast with her public persona as a social activist in the indie game development scene. The post also reveals that, throughout their relationship, Quinn had had affairs with several prominent individuals in the games industry. Of particular interest to members of the gaming community, the post revealed that Quinn had an affair with games journalist Nathan Grayson, who is noted to write for Kotaku—one of the largest game news websites in the world.
    • Though it is not mentioned in Gjoni's post, Nathan Grayson gave Quinn's game, Depression Quest, special attention in a Rock Paper Shotgun article he wrote on 8 January 2014. The game was mentioned as a highlight in the group of 50 games, and was given top billing in the form of being the headline image.[4] Grayson also interviewed Quinn on a Rock Paper Shotgun video blog uploaded on 22 March.[5] After moving to Kotaku, Grayson wrote about Quinn yet again on 31 March 2014, in which he mentioned her role in a failed game jam TV show and mentioned her interest in starting her own jam.[6]
  • Eron first posts his revelations about Zoe Quinn in the somethingawful.com and Penny Arcade forums. The threads are swiftly deleted.[7]
  • Eron subsequently begins publishing his revelations on a wordpress blog. (1)

17 Aug 2014

It is revealed that TFYC, a feminist game jam, was blackballed from gaming news media due to the influence of Zoe Quinn.

  • TFYC (The Fine Young Capitalists) alleged doxxing and harassment which their feminist production received from Zoe Quinn, in a Reddit thread discussing Quinn's earlier harassment allegations against Wizardchan. The company was later unable to get press or coverage in games media for its game jam, due to Quinn's influence and unfavorable view of the project. The project was to make a game based on the ideas of a female designer, with an internet vote deciding which woman's idea would be made into a game.

18 Aug 2014

Prominent Youtube game commentator TotalBiscuit, a.k.a. John Bain, posts about the DMCA takedown and emerging scandal.

  • Prominent Youtube video game critic and commentator John Bain—better known by his handle TotalBiscuit—makes a twitlonger post discussing the Quinn scandal, criticizing the use of DMCA requests to take down critical work and mentions that "Games journalism as a whole has a massive nepotism problem, encouraged by the publishers and developers and actively partaken in by many outlets.".[12] He also notes the confusion and already intense debate surrounding the scandal. [TW] [AT]

19 Aug 2014

GamesNosh's publishes an article on events, only to have it blocked by their webhost
Reddit moderators heavily censors posts and users discussing the scandal.

Enter the Streisand Effect

  • UK based gaming website GamesNosh is one of the first sites to publish an article reporting on the scandal.[13] Their webhost subsequently blocks the article and asks them to remove it completely,.[14] Gamers resort to viewing the article on The Wayback Machine. Zoe Quinn then asks for contact information and also asked them to remove it from the archives,[15] resulting in the removal of the page from the archive. The article was later restored.

Censorship on Reddit

  • TotalBiscuit's twitlonger post is submitted on Reddit to the /r/gaming subreddit forum. To prevent discussion, /r/gaming moderators end up deleting almost 25,000 comments in the thread.[16] One of the /r/Gaming moderators was revealed to have been in contact with Quinn. The same moderator stated that the mass deletions were to prevent "doxxing".
  • The moderator XavierMendel of /r/Games was later removed from their position for resisting the extensive censorship taking place on reddit, and gave an audio interview audio interview, and made two written accounts detailing the heavy censorship of the scandal which took place in the /r/Games subreddit alone between Aug 18th to the 22nd, including manual and automatic deletions, and shadowbanning of users. 1, 2.

GameJournoPros and The Escapist Forums

File:Ben Kuchera.jpg

4chan becomes one of the last major sites where gamers could discuss the scandal.
  • Most major gaming websites such as NeoGAF, and the Gamespot forums heavily moderate, edit, delete, and censor discussion of the controversy. 4chan /v/ mods are allegedly also deleting some threads. The Escapist remains one of the few major websites still permitting open discussion of the controversy.[17]

4chan's /v/ board

  • The other major gaming website where discussion of the topic is still quasi-permitted is the video games, or "/v/" board on the anonymous imageboard site 4chan. Despite thread deletions, discussion takes places owing to the sheer volume of gamers making new threads.
  • Zoe Quinn's tumblr and twitter accounts are allegedly hacked and her information doxxed by "4CHAN.ORG/V/". Members of the 4chan /v/ board are immediately skeptical, not least due to the uncharacteristic use of a capitalized /V/ to describe the board. Investigation shows the posted information to be unrelated to Quinn. The incident is viewed with skepticism by posters on /v/ and elsewhere. 4chan thread archives of incident 1, 2.
  • Steam users are reportedly being banned from the depression quest forums after critiquing depression quest. The bans are given for "abuse".

Totilo had earlier made a series of tweets on this event. [TW]
  • TotalBiscuit reveals that he has been called a "misogynist" and "nazi" for making his previous statements [TW]
  • Youtube comedian and game critic Jon Jafari—better known as "JonTron"—tweets about his earlier encounter with Zoe Quinn during the failed Polaris GAME_JAM in March,[19][20] and on the current concerns about journalism,[21] and the behavior of social justice proponents.[22] After linking to a NSFW satirical comic series on the scandal, also featuring himself and Phil Fish, Jontron receives a barrage of criticism.[23][24][25]
  • It is revealed that Quinn's game Depression Quest was one of the selections for IndieCade's Night Games event,[26] of which holding the main Curator chair is Robin Arnott,[27] one of the people Eron alleges Quinn had an affair with.

  • The website Internet Outrage Database publishes an article[33] covering the extensive abuse and vitriol received by Youtubers TotalBiscuit, JonTron and BroTeam for speaking publicly about the scandal.

The Polytron Hack

  • Questions remain unanswered about the hacking. 4chan /v/ posters were again skeptical over a second use of an uncharacteristic capitalized /V/,[35] and posters who later analyzed the incident discovered that the Polytron's Cloudfare server was extremely difficult to hack, and analysis of the linked data suggested it had been created from files on a portable drive, not a webserver, almost 5 hours prior to Polytron's webpage being defaced. 4chan thread archives: 1, 2, 3
  • The leaked data would later become a basis for investigations into the IGF.

22 Aug 2014

28 Aug 2014

The "Gamers are Dead" articles

A montage of the "Gamers are Dead" attack articles published by gaming websites on Aug 28th 2014. The articles condemned gamers as angry and hateful, and celebrated the death of the gamer identity and culture.

GameJournoPros : The articles constitutes a massive smear campaign by the online games media on the worldwide gaming community. Many of the articles explicitly tie the previous scandal stemming from Eron Gjoni's revelations into the recent threats faced by Anita Sarkeesian. Editorial collusion between games websites in the creation of this narrative is heavily suspected. These suspicions are later validated by the UK journalist Milo Yiannopoulos' exposure of the secretive GameJournoPros mailing list..

Many gamers suspect orchestration and shutdown of criticism by games journalists.[80] Suggestions of collusion similar to Ezra Klein's main-stream media JournoList scandal are made,[81] and will later be vindicated by the discovery of the GameJournoPros secret email list.
