    Yeah there are some posters here I wouldn't call out for acting like niggers if they do, because I value them too much.
    That problem does not exist on the chans, I am fairly sure one guy I regularily butt heads with in a general is also one of the better anons from there.
    I raked him on April Fools for acting too Canadian. He got confined to Quebec for a day, and the experience scarred him.

    To be honest started posting here to avoid 4chan, got tired of the same memes being recycled over and over, wanted to discuss some western rpgs so here I'm.

    Despite having some threads diving straight into retardoland like /v/ and some schizo posting, codex still have some sort of focused discourse regarding games. Battle Brothers thread for example fullfill its purpose of collecting information and sharing experiences and same for Colony Ship when the demo released and I expect the same when the EA arrive tomorrow.

    Also upcoming RPG's besides the usual it looks like shit some rpgs grasp some interest and spawn some sort of discussion, could be better but we are miles away from being shit like /v/

    I agree, but personally I don't think that it outweighs the advantage of being able to chat on a different topic with that same person in some other thread. There are some board regulars that you'd stumble upon constantly, but many good posts also come from people who just browse the chans once every blue moon.

    It's a matter of perspective I guess. I personally don't censor myself in order to maintain some 'forum image' as it were, but that is mostly due to the fact that the Codex isn't a normie forum (thanks largely due to its lenient moderation policy). As for emnities, I don't hold any grudges. If I don't like someone, it's mostly due to their opinions and not their personality (and since I don't use the ignore feature anyway, it's not like my prejudices would stop me from reading or engaging with a quality post from one of those people).

    With that I agree. Both forums and imageboards have their place on the internet.

    4chan sometimes has interesting posts that you wouldn't see on the Codex.

    There was a thread on western devs making women ugly on purpose and a response was, "Ohh, there's no waifu, fucking weebs."
    And another one saying that Disco Elysium mocks communism as well.

    For some reason it became the consensus on 4chan that to use online walkthroughs when playing games is the right way to go. That's so bizarre to me, since it ruins the fun and is anti-hardcore. Many are also strident there that there is no such thing as too much grinding.

    That's jRPG fans for you. Again, 4chan userbase is mostly console players with most of folks getting into video games with PS1 (being optimistic here) and later gens. If you've played/read about games like Final Fantasy, lots of them have convoluted means of unlocking best weapons to defeat optional superbosses that are almost impossible to figure out by yourself. IIRC in Final Fantasy 12 you need to NOT open some specific chests to then get best weapon from a specific chest, can't blame players for being paranoid when devs pull shit like this. Western RPGs share similar obscurities at times as well, to get Goldbrand in Morrowind you need be lucky son of a bitch to figure all of that out on your own when there's nothing that even hits it exists.

    A difference between a 4chan meme and an old codex meme describes the relationship between /vrpg/ and rpgcodex perfectly.

    Meaning the difference between demented sexually repressed nerds and relatively sane sexually repressed nerds?

    Yeah, seems about right.

    Full anonymity is all right. The problem with all those 4chans and so on is that they also have some algorithms where threads get closed for no reason. A good anonymous format approximates a forum, except you don't know the posters.

    I mean you can't easily identify the author and can't see their posting pattern. This forum has a nice approach: https://www.econjobrumors.com/ - every individual gets assigned a code within the thread based on IP, but not across threads. Old threads are not removed.
