Codex has gotten too edgy and has declined considerably

    Am I late for the annual "as a neutral centrist politics bother me, but especially the alt-right chuds, comrade" thread

    (well there's Porky to represent the useless "oldschool liberal" type too)

    THQ nordic is still being fried on "non-toxic" sites for daring to have an AMA on 8chan instead of reddit. It happened february 2019.

    Speaking of that. Remember how JK Rowling once posted that "people who menstruate" is a ridiculous term to use in place of "women" which caused a backlash so she went on to post that she loves trans people but erasing the concept of sex is bad for feminism because trans women are not literally 100% the same as biological women in all aspects?

    DC Comics' Teen Titans Call Harry Potter "Problematic"? (bleedingcool.com)

    This is the fate of a celebrity who wrote what might as well be the zoomer bible. Rightoid frogposters are the issue though, the rest of the internet is perfectly normal and nuanced.

    Its actually worse than that, the AMA did not even really happen. THQ cancelled it almost immediately after the news got out. So they are not even being roasted for having a AMA but just for floating the idea of having an AMA on 8chan.

    Not zoomer, millennial bible. Zoomer are at best the second generation of HP "fans", milennials are the ones truly obsessed with the franchise.

    Sorry to say but I cant even access that thread.

    Nah, it did happen, I remember the thread. Many questions were stuff like "Where's dem big tittied lolis?" but real questions did get asked too. For their part, THQ actually played along and answered even some shitposts, which pleased anons greatly.

    All in all pretty harmless fun, though. THQ obviously did not know just where exactly they decided to do an AMA, but then just rolled with it and apologized later.

    As I already said somewhere, I stopped playing and being interested in games somewhere in 2010/2011 and somewhat came back only in late 2019/2020. For me, the transition from being mostly free of agenda to being completely pozzed is even more stunning.

    Just install a plugin which will replace slurs with neutral words ("n*gger"->"bl*ck").
    Problem solved, that would be 5 australian dollars.

    Hmmm :

    Looks like "SJW stuff" wins :).

    And to be honest, if I check at what time I receive the massive influx of "retards" and other "cuck" emotes, it was massively when US was awake. Except Kalin who went through the trouble to put "stop posting" on every single of my message except one, but the guy does not sleep.

    Not surprising, resetera is heavily censored so shills from companies post there which in turn attracts more users.
    Might as well also post reddit.

    I checked a bit Resetera and found something interesting :

    RPGCodex 2017 GOTY result : Fine to post in 2018, only a few comments on the source (eg "RPG Codex seems to have shit people, but I can't deny their taste.")
    RPGCodex 2018 GOTY result : Can be posted in 2019, but comments about how the Codex is a dumpster fire. 2 pages of comments
    RPGCodex 2019 GOTY result : Not found on ResetEra
    RPGCodex 2020 GOTY result : Please do not post content from RPGCodex

    Of course, it may just as well be ResetEra that moved rather than the Codex - or both.

    They can't be compared, the codex is a site for niche games in a niche genre(true cRPGs not "RPGs") and resetera is a site for flagellation.

    A. The success of resetera does not disprove that RPGcodex declined because it adopted SJW views.
    B. Resetera is artificially propped up. The whole site effectively came about only because Neogaf imploded on its self and much of its users migrated there. It has algorithmic support from social media sites and woke developers like to congregate there. Its success is wholly on the shoulders of external factors that have little to do with the site and its moderation. The very chart proves that as the site basically just popped up in 2017 and suddenly peaked in popularity.

    What happened to Neogaf ? The only forum I ever posted in, except a few game specific forums, are OT Paradox and RPGCodex.
