    I don't understand why everyone else would quit because one member did something or didn't do something seriously bad.

    clique mentality

    although if it was false I could understand it then, but it seems pretty clear a bug was reported to a bounty program without discussing it with the person who brought it to the table, even if you say "oh but other people knew anyway so whats the harm" its still not a cool thing to do imo

    I'm sure some people quit, I know I would.

    What would be your reasoning for quitting in that situation?

    Well imo, when stuff like this happens and things start to get out of control, I feel the best way to avoid it is to strip your name from a "side". I feel things were taken out of hand and I doubt we will ever know the exact truth from either side if one is lying or exaggerating. From what I see, both sides were "in the wrong", but that is with limited info on this matter and any talk about it in the discord gets people kicked. Tbh, I would want to get off of a target that people are shooting at asap.

    keep on track, I would personally allow this lite stuff, but it quickly engulfs the thread with over opinionated BS :)

    Well, considering I left their server a long time ago, I'd say it's cause of shitty moderators power abusing over small jokes members made in the offtopic channel. But this is getting somewhat offtopic though. Anyways, some people can only deal with so much negativity and feeling like you're in 1984 except in this case you get sent to the Twilight Zone (banned). You could probably ask other members of more recent experiences in that Discord server.

    SX OS is honestly a pretty worthwhile investment if you want backups, but I absolutely despise spending money and would rather wait for something free :(

    That's fair enough, not being able to discuss the issue is a pretty silly thing...

    To be perfectly honest, after reading this and seeing how the ReSwitched team is censoring the discussion, I think I might ask to be banned from ReSwitched. Of course, I'll have to wait until the server's not locked down first.

    I would suggest people just take a step back and let the flames die out and see what emerges from the ashes, keeping the debates/drama going just delays the outcome

    So, why haven't you bought a TX yet? They have no in fighting, they actually released stuff, and updated and fixed stuff quite quick. You can buy the TX OS for less than half the price of a brand new game. :P

    Just click "Leave Server" and don't go back? You can even do that while it's locked down.

    Yes, but that still allows me to return. I'd be better off being banned.

    This thread is silly and half of you are silly numpkins. ktemkin didn't steal any money, stop saying that this is theft. ktemkin was aware of a bug that was discovered earlier, regardless of who found it first, made a presentation about the bug on a completely different device and submitted it (or not, I see no concrete evidence) to a bug bounty. There was no monetary harm done to the original hacker who found the exploit if the original hacker never intended to submit it for money in the first place. We don't know if ktemkin got any money at all in return and we'll probably never know. If any of this is true, it's certainly dishonest, it's not acceptable scene behaviour, but it's happened before. It's not theft of money, ktemkin didn't rob anyone at gunpoint, if anything it's "theft" of intellectual property and labour, or plagiarism, something most pirates don't seem to have a problem with, so don't be hypocrites. All of you need to settle down, other mods are quite kind to the few offenders in this thread, I am not kind. Scene drama used to be contained in NFO's, but since these days it spills onto Twitter and Discord, we have the storm we're all seeing now. I want this conversation to be civil - be respectful of other members and the developers in question, stick to the topic and the thread will continue smoothly until we get to the bottom of this. Don't disappoint me, I don't take disappointment well. :p1ng:

    reswitch was never a "team"
    it was a bunch of random people who got together trying to hack the switch for their own selfish reasons

    drama from toxic communities mmmmm

    Well, this all could probably be a good thing for Atmosphere. Maybe purging everyone useless from the team/discord can be a breath of fresh air, and get things back on track!
