    I hope he's trolling us and he stays quiet so we would think some retard kicked him out. Also, last I checked Prime Junta asked DarkUnderlord to eject him not Bubbles.

    To pre-empt any bullshit, no I did not ask anyone to eject Bubbles. I consider him a respected and valuable autist of this community and think it would be a real bummer if he left over a stupid move done in the heat of the moment.

    There's almost always more to it than that. Straw, camel, back, that sort of thing. Perhaps somebody's been mean to him and this just pushed him over the edge. :(

    Where expecting basics is considered perfectionism
    Prime Junta mentions AoD in his review while he didn't play it
    Bubbles complains, leaks parts of the review and asks for removal of that part.
    Infinitron says fuck off and the review gets published anyway.
    Bubbles took it personally and announced his retirement.

    That's all you can learn from the drama thread.

    However, there is possibility that something mysterious was going on in the depths of the secret forum and private conversations that made him quit.

    I can't tell if you're being a dick or not. [​IMG]

    Bubbles was a great poster tho he did get a bit too serious when he started contributing to the site which should be lesson to everyone I think.

    I was asked for, and wrote a review of Tyranny. There was a line in it to which he objected. It didn't occur to him to mention it to me despite being in the PM thread about the review. Instead he pre-emptively published it on the front page with a clickbaity title, then deleted it. I got butthurt and announced that I'm quitting. Now he's gone MIA. In the interim it appears I have effectively retracted my self-ejection since somewhat to my surprise I'm still here.

    No doubt the Inner Circle(tm) has more but that's about it AFAIK.

    Not intentionally. Not this time. I don't like it when people are mean to each other, and I certainly don't have anything against Bubbles other than this one incident which as far as I'm concerned is water under the bridge.

    Yeah, this. I am reading up on this now a bit and this is completely overblown. People should stop taking the codex so god damn serious, sure yeah it's a prestigious magazine and all that but it's the CODEX and in the end no one should let this affect themselves too much. Just... don't take this place, your "job" here and yourself in general too serious.

    Sorry if this sounds mean, not supposed to ;)

    I don't want to say anything bad about Bubbles. We're all flawed people, working for free for a video game site for no practical reason. I just hope he realizes in time that we're all better served if he returns to what made him great - producing excellent content and reviews. Everything else is a distraction.

    I don't want to say anything "bad" either, but abusing the ability to post on the frontpage to belittle another user who also contributes to this site is a pretty.... un-nice move to say it mildly and more than a bit revealing.

    But whatevs. I'm always fine with drama :3

    You have to be careful around goons and people with the goon mentality. A bit of a sadistic, authoritarian streak in 'em.

    Not all goons of course. Josh Sawyer and CB aren't like that.

    I privately asked Bee for my ejection on Monday and expect it to go through at some point in the near future. The decision has been well-considered, as far I can judge that myself. I do not plan to return to these forums in any capacity, and I think I'll be able to stick to that. I won't post about RPGs anywhere else, and I won't publish content anywhere else. I apologize to everybody I have hurt or offended.

    My remaining Gamescom+GDC content will be delivered to Bee unless she objects. It will consist of pure transcripts, without any commentary. The commentary should be left to those who are still part of the site.

    Come on man, that's needlessly extreme. If there are things on this forum that disturb you, then we can find a way to keep those things away from you and still let you do the stuff you're great at. Even if it means leaving the forum almost entirely - look at TNO, he came out of nowhere after years of absence and gave us a DX: MD review. That's good too. I mean, if you'd never had access to the Content forums and never saw what was behind the curtain, would any of this had happened? Find out what works for you and do it.
