Codex has gotten too edgy and has declined considerably

    I mean, the highest percentage of Arabs and Negroes among all European countries; these people surely don't like woke stuff much, makes sense

    Stop apologising to people who would've found something else to get offended over anyway.

    Look lads, i'm too old for this bollocks but I remember a time when people weren't obligated to be responsible for other people's emotional state. Oftentimes we even made the dangerous assumption that other people were adults. And wouldn't burst into tears or become weirdly condescending when presented with things they don't agree with.

    I have no clue what compells someone to go to this silly and autistic forum purely to say "we have no balls and the emotional maturity of petulant children and that makes us better than you.". You can always just leave.

    Macron (like his cronies) is an opportunist that will whatever make the current audience happy. In that case, it's to score points against the left/farther left (i.e. Melenchon), to limit the influence of the right and prop his policies against protestors (mostly yellow vests)

    Yeah, and there's enough bad and insane things that he (or his puppetmaster) has done or contributed to that "at least he's not an SJW" doesn't do him much.

    People have to understand that during Codex's earlier years, people were mostly raging about terrorism and wars in the Middle East. These days the societal development has so gone off the rails in the West that people are just far more outraged and frustrated about every day stuff that is happening all around us. And outrageous shit being pushed in both politics and media has directly affected videogames and made them worse for it. So go figure the gaming discussions would end up being affected by this development.

    Imagine this line replacing 'doesn't scale to your level' on top of the page? :D

    He lumped game with character creation, blobber with full party creation from bunch of fantasy races and metroidvania about elf girl into "white/asian cast". What exactly you expected from him?

    Someone I knew told me back in 2015 that he used to hang around here way back but then the userbase slowly became nazis and then he left the site. He's some lefty weirdo but I remember him playing the Age of Decadence combat beta and looking forward to the full game. The Codex has probably lost a lot of lefties who are into RPG:s.

    The biggest problem is not the people we lost, but the ones we got instead.

    That's a shame. You're second only to treave in quality and quantity of LPs/CYOAs imo. Although I came to the game pretty late, so maybe there are better then you there :D. I disagree strongly with the idea that this site's posters are so unbearable it necessitates dropping over a decade of engagement and productive activity for the sake of avoiding repeated exposure to them. At the end of the day you've got to do what you've got to do though. I think what all our current wrangling (in this thread and elsewhere) comes down to right now is that, bottom line, everyone needs to understand whose side they'd be on when the choice is forced on them. Because making that choice, purely for survival's sake if nothing else, seems to be more and more likely to happen these days. You can at least say you're one of the few who views that question with clear sight, and decided unapologetically on your answer.

    I'll miss you if you do end up finally leaving for good :salute:

    I cannot imagine that my politics, religion and posting are anything beyond exasperating to you. You don't seem the type to have much use for traditional-minded Christians. But I want you to know that I'm really glad you, Taluntain and Saint_Proverbius (again :D) are still in charge of this place. I will pray continually that (1) you continue to have the physical health and sound mind required to keep the Codex going and (2) your death comes after mine. I shudder to think of this place once Infinitron gets complete control.

    Emphasis mine. This whole post is bullshit. "Hurr durr I dun wanna sensor any1 bros I just want all of you to fuck off of your own free will so I don't have to read what you write anymore!" But that final sentence takes the cake for vicious, pure, undiluted devil-inspired lying.

    QED.
