    There was a fall-out between the devs of this site. The only productive one was forced to leave and his content stolen by the remaining freeloaders. Since then absolutely nothing has happened and the only responses the excellent community gets from the dilettants are snarky oneliners and gratuitous meme postings like the one above. Ubi es Rex?

    HOW ABOUT A HELL OF A NOPE?
    :timetoburn::rage::flamesaw::killit::baka::imperialscum::shunthenonbeliever:

    Do you ever hear of "if it aint bugging, it doesnt need fixing"?
    Or something alone the line of "It can always get worse"
    Or something shorter like "active stupid".
    Hell no. If it aint breaking, there's no need to mess with it.

    Hey Man Tits,

    Haven't you noticed any time even the slightest change is made here the apocalyptic shitstorm that ensues with every hopelessly autistic lurker coming out of the woodwork to swear by everything holy that he will hunt down and punish those who are responsible?

    This site is kept in a hermetically-sealed state of stasis for your and my protection. Deal with it.

    Sure thing - we need more zoomer internet design elements such as built-in transparent pop-ups that make the rest of the website greyed out until they are clicked, link following without refresh and updating the web address and animated buttons with soyboy silhouette head icons. IT IS 2019 AFTER ALL

    Yeah, good thing nothing ever changes around here, otherwise who knows?

    We could end up with a forum full of "rating" buttons, a chat window, or all manner of other retarded millennial fuckness. Luckily that won't happen, amirite?

    Would't Codex actually adapt pretty well to modern design sensibilities? Just curve the edges of the retangles, give it that "modern smartphone app" look, get rid of most lines, keep aesthetics largely the same.

    Also Codex is one of the few forums that wisely uses a dark, night-friendly theme rather than the genericness of most forums' white screens.

    The Codex hates new things and everything that is modern.

    Just look at how Oblivion was received.

    Oblivion reviews tell you everything about Codex opinions on web design. It's true.
