    So InfiniJew and DarkUndercock have had their fun by now, and yet the avatar/name situation is still in place. What's the endgame of it all I wonder?

    Is it a test? What's it testing? Is it punishment, or some means of making us appreciate what we've got knowing it can be taken away at a moment's notice? What will finally bore them enough to return this place back to normality? Or have they just gone insane?

    Will it ever end?

    May they soon remove the message numbers, and we will all become one with the collective...

    It's to ease out the Xchan formula before the censorship laws hit.

    I feel your suffering Citizen, but that's only because we are one.

    Try to embrace our newfound unity & joy. The more of us feel it, the more others feel it as well.

    Zep, is that actually you? What happened to your repressed homosexual flair? And you have only 625 posts? You make that many shitposts in a single afternoon if your hand isn't too tired from playing with yourself.

    I think some non-Zep citizen is impersonating the Codex's trolliest troll.

    Edit: Aha! Click Reply on someone's post and all will be revealed.

    No. The Watch isn't so bad. Some of those guys still have personalities and stuff. Do you want to know where the internet's true horror of RPG-based enforced conformity and groupthink lies?

    I would like to report that quoting still gives individual names to Citizens. This is unacceptable and must be purged.

    Two of the most highly anticipated rpgs in recent history, Stygian and Disco Elysium, are coming out today and next week. That makes this a serious time when we must pull in one direction as citizens. There is still much work to do if the Codex is to remain the one place on the Internet where rpgs are discussed intelligently. Talking points as to why these games are shit must be crafted and used to shut down any positive reaction to these releases. The developers must be driven away. Any citizen who doesn’t fall in line must be identified and tagged for the safety of all. Only when these new threats have been mitigated and the Grand Circle Jerk is secured can we reclaim our identities.

    The reason they did this is because they are homosexual Jews.

    No forum can survive this kind of annoyance for long. I bet visits and posts must be record-low. This leads to three possibilities.

    1) I am wrong, people is loving the hivemind, the forum will survive
    2) I am right, and admins know too, so they're really trying to kill the forum.
    3) I am right, but admins don't know they're kiling the forum, or just underestimate how much this pisses off posters. Maybe even think this is funny.

    Incompetence (3) is a simpler explanation than conspiracy (2) so my bet is on 3.

    Usually it's like that but when it involves Jews, I always believe it's a conspiracy.

    OK FUCK YOU ALL. I made this thread so I can end it.

    I signed up in good faith and would've been happy to donate if it meant access to the hidden forums. Hell I'm a long-time lurker - I know those extra forums USED to be freely available to all a long time ago, but in an effort to make more money they got hidden and either required long-term accounts or payment. In other words, the admins here basically too the micro-transaction route we all hate and wanted to make more money doing basically noting to deserve it.

    But that's cool, it's not like anyone has any integrity left anymore. I mean anything for a buck right? That's the way the world works after all and I accepted it as such. But this inability to stop a stupid joke is ruining any ability to communicate properly between everyone else. It's beating a dead horse in the worst possible way, and despite being the potential for the death of a forum is still in effect.

    (I am aware of course the admins might find a rant such as this proof of why keeping the "joke" going is worth it, but some things needs to be said).

    Maybe I'll return with another account someday. But clearly this was the wrong time. Now bring on the shit, disagree and all manner of negative buttons/reactions (and possibly autist). I'll just hack this place and remove them later. Oh wait, what's that? I have access? Yup. Unfortunately the XenForo forum software has a number of vulnerabilities and the version used on RPGCodex is old enough for some of them to be exploitable. Huh. Maybe I'll fix the avatar/name problem myself...
