GamerGate’s Achievements Thus Far
I asked the hashtag for a list of what GamerGate has achieved/caused/found out thus far. Here are the results.
[PixieJenni note: these are not necessarily what I consider achievements but as stated, will be keeping personal bias off this post. This is simply want I’ve been sent as successes]
As always you can email email@example.com and you will be kept anonymous (just like in the answer sections!)
- Kotaku made a change in it’s policies about Patreon here – on 26th August
- The Escapist changed it’s ethics policy – here – on 8th September
- Breitbart listed who was on the GameJournoPros list here – 22nd September
- TFYC funded (unsure of exact amount via GG) here – 26th September
- Intel pulled ads from Gamasutra (1 October?) and made a statement here on 3rd October
- Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) pulled ads from Gamasutra – here source dated 14th October [this has been questioned here]
- The Ralph Retort claims to have proven collusion at the Guardian here – 16th October [there is discussion over whether they actually have]
- Various charity drives including: Bullying Prevention, Suicide Prevention, Action Against Hunger
I’ve been sent the claim that GG tracked down one of Anita’s harassers – however this will not be included until I see it confirmed by law enforcement (I’m wary of including incorrect information!).
I’ve also been sent reference to Total Biscuit’s reveal about the Shadow of Mordor stuff but since this wasn’t undertaken as part of GG, and he’s done similiar on his own terms before, I am not including it.
Was sent this about EA and whistle blowing which came out during GG and ma ybe part of it? Would need more to confirm (send me stuff!).
Currently looking into this (Destructoid/GameJournoPros stuff) further before adding to list.
