    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    Jesus Christ, that's fucking obnoxious. :lol:

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    Actually, Chris Roberts made me money—over $3,000 net profit, all told. I made a nice pile in a tiny fraction of the time you spend begging and scrounging for shitty games.

    I know. I already have.

    For Codexers who don't block ads in order to support the site, though (I'm guessing most of them), that's fucking obnoxious.

    Ads? What ads?

    And no, I am no Patron.

    But a Net citizen this day that doesnt train to ignore ad?

    Good to know that someone's getting some good money and not wasting their time. And no, that's a genuine compliment.

    As for the ads, I think they're just a way of running a huge internet community which still remains free to view, join, and do most stuff. Let's hope it can stay that way for a while longer. I would want more tangible rewards for directly funding the website though.

    Last time I checked, codex with ads on has literal pop ups... so no, I think it'd only be a small niche of euros viewing it unblocked who don't know any better rather than a majority.

    Yeah, I would probably throw in a donation if I could have a custom avatar or title of my choosing.

    Wait, are you actually complaining that it looks obnoxious because of your blocking ads? For the sake of explaining the obvious to everyone blocking ads who don't know: that large empty space is where the ad would appear if it wasn't adblocked.

    What? Ad-free access disables ALL ads.

    I disabled that yesterday so it shouldn't be showing any more. We might be ditching Tapatalk altogether in the near future anyway.

    Woops. I had a mental slip. Meant to say that the last time I saw codex with ads there were pop ups.

    I would absolutely love decorating my avatar space with some of the funnier tags here, or slapping other people with some choicy horrible great tags. Why isn't this a feature? Especially since so many people here like to make fun of each other.

    That sounds like something... awful.

    You have your chance to do that with some smart betting in DU vs Menck duel thread.

    It's one ad for a graphics editor that shows up once per session, not as dramatic as you remember.

    You know, once a browser game called Forumwarz was a thing and there you could troll other players by pranking them with avatars and custom titles. You could also buy new smilies and community ads. Great fun for the whole family!

    1. Join Codex
    2. Post a ton of stupid bullshit and get fairly well-known
    3. Weasel your way into becoming a mod somehow, immediately granting relief from ads

    We've heard that several times before. A week or two later, the tapatalk hell resumes. :P
