- The Wikipedia Editor Ryulong, and financial ties to those invested against #gamergate
- Earlier today, the mods of /r/gamerghazi put up two posts mentioning their private chats with editor Ryulong, and requested /r/gamerghazi members to fund Ryulong's GoFundMe page.
- Gamerghazi posts:
- https://archive.today/PEKH2 After a discussion with Ryulong, we've both decided it would be best if he stepped away from the GamerGate Controversy Wikipedia article
- https://archive.today/NdxXM Hey there, GamerGhazi! Want to help Ryulong get his stuff back from Japan?
- The gofundme page at the beginning.
- After being posted on /r/gamerghazi, the asked for amount of $350 was quickly met.
- As Ryulong stated just a few hours ago, s/he will be stepping away from the wikipedia article on #gamergate: "I am now going to step away from the page as any further edits I make to the article or its talk page may be construed as a conflict of interest." https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case&diff=634509124&oldid=634489313#Involved_parties
- Ryulong decided to drop the case due to a discussion with an /r/gamerghazi mod, and the same mod proceeded to shill out Ryulong's donation page.
- I'm not sure whether or not this falls under any actual conflict of interest issues, but nonetheless, it's suggestive that there could be a problem with Ryulong's claimed neutrality, due to both secret discussions with those involved in the controversy itself, and through financial support of those who claim to be against #gamergate.
