    Here in Brazil everyone uses Whatsapp.

    I don't remember the last time I used SMS. I think it was 2016 or 17? Nobody uses SMS here because its too expensive, brazilian telecoms are a bunch of kikes.

    Hell, BR Telecoms hate Whatsapp, because people just do VOIP calls over wi-fi and 4g and leave them sucking dick. They even managed to get judges to take whatsapp down a few years ago.

    Now everyone seems to be getting Telegram lately.

    Curiosity got the better of me so I decided to check it out. It's either gimmick threads to have an excuse to waifupost, or bait threads to incite shit flinging. Pretty much any of the threads where actual discussion takes place are about JRPGs.
    In other words, it's literally just /v/ except people are only allowed to talk about one genre.

    That's a step in the right direction. If anything, Signal works well.

    Its because Telegram is great for piracy. Also, more privacy.

    So people are loving the ability to pirate the fuck out of everything. Games, Music, Study Material (you have no idea how expensive it can be here), etc...

    I use WhatsApp to talk to coworkers if I want to shoot off a short message and not call them, reaction time on WhatsApp is much better than just sending an email

    Saying rtwp is better than TB is a bannable offence. Consider yourself tolerated.
    Btw, first two Larian Divinity games were pure realtime diablo style and were infinitely better than the clusterfuck that the rtwp IE game combat is. If you think TB is liek boooring and not eenuf akshun then go full action rpg instead of creating shit that's neither here or there. I've yet to see a game that has good implementation of rtwp. It was created to coddle the crowd, who don't like tactical combat and should have no interest for arpeegees whatsoever. One of the early instance of dumbing down the system to cater kiddies with low attention span and need for constant hectic movement on the screen.

    I think someone else said it here, but whoever said it is long-lost to my memory:

    The Codex is the best medium between the chansphere and the normienet.

    - We have the beautiful chaos, anarchy and randomness of the chans, but a little more controlled.

    - We have the order and moderation of the normienet, but the mods are just adequately apathetic enough to never become little tinpot tyrants. Furthermore, DU only messes with us for shits and giggles and everyone accepts that.

    - We have anonymity in the form of user names, but we also have notoriety in the same. Furthermore, it is possible to know users by their writing style, their likes and dislikes and their general ways. So we are all unknown randoms talking to each other, but we are know people talking to each other. I am not just random brazilian guy with no name, or the person I am behind that keyboard, I am The Brazilian Slaughter here.

    - Because the Codex is free, unlike the normienet, everyone is genuine here. We are all a bunch of edgy try-hard bastards for sure, but that's who we are or choose to project, and we love it. There is also real, genuine kindness and care, not the fake type displayed by false good people on the Normienet, but actual human kindness and friendliness. The Codexer will call for the extermination of an entire ethnic group (as he is wont to), and then send a MP to his bro asking if he is doing ok. In the words of Eyestabber from my old sig:

    - Being free also means that in the Codex, you are allowed to express whatever thoughts you desire, unfiltered. This results in a lot of drek and noise, but this also results in a lot of verboten, polemical and even "criminal" expression. There's no filter, no political correctness, no insane mods ready to destroy those who wrong-think. Therefore, similar to the chans, the Codex is a place where things can actually be discussed and thoughts can be truly expressed. This also leads to true, actual solutions that the normie public are scared of, because they are weak and their masters do not want to solve issues.



    - Furthermore, because Codex is a forum, we can build upon past discussions, rather than the past discussion being swallowed by a delluge of posts into the imageboard ether. We also know the users, so we can remember their positions as well.


    To conclude:

    Codex >>> Chans. Therefore, /vrpg already lost.

    Linking to 4chan on the 'dex should be treated the same way as linking to reddit on 4chan.

    Before we do that, can we PLEASE all agree that the C in CRPG stands for computer, not classic?
