    Brofist sounds like some gay incest porn search tag, can't we call it something else ? I have no wish to be fisted.

    Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    the buttons gave me a way to interact without actually having to write. an autist friendly way to interact without having any social skills. now i have to bare my soul for validation. type my inane drivel into the void to try to get the recognition i am denied IRL. like a, like a

    but seriously, i think the buttons are 80% of the fun and half the communication. without them the codex feels eerily sanitized. you're not planning on selling out to some wapanese businessman, are you?

    I need to rate but I can't. I have to choose between a working forum and smug satisfaction after rating internet posts.
    Life is suffering.

    I'm already seeing improvements, people actually writing why they disagree with me.

    People writing walls of text about why someone was wrong about some small minutia was the reason I registered here. Whether it is HHR's fanatical diatribes or LS's musings about the higher forms, it's all part of the charm.

    The codexian race must protect its identity and values. It'is therefore important to bring buttons back.

    Buttons play an important communication role in this community.

    I have no wish to make a post if I can press a TLDR button. If I wish to be wordy, then I have time to think more before writing.

    I still remember the days of scrolling tens of post saying a variant of I agree or something~

    Although I didn't vote in favour of buttons returning, the system can generate a bit of useful information. I once dished out a participation award (can't recall why, possibly because it was about a game winning an award) which triggered an angry, months-long retaliatory ratings spree, and a few butthurt posts in a rather charming variety of broken English. This sort of reminder of just how thin-skinned and mentally unstable many of us are is a handy byproduct of ratings :salute:

    Hmmm... the poll is really close. Almost a 50:50 if we look at [no brofists + only brofists] versus [bring buttons back].
    Half of the people prefer the minimum ratings or no ratings at all.

    That's two different stances altogether, so definite minority for either of them.

    Hmmm... The poll is not at all close. Almost a 77:23 if we look at [bring buttons back + brofist only ratings] versus [no ratings at all].
    Over three quarters of the voters prefer being able to use some type of ratings.

    Make three forums. One with buttons. One with brofists. One with nothing.

    Everyone will be satisfied.

    Or make it three themes of forum: Classic (nothing), Bro, and Modern. Is it that hard?

    (real question, because I dont know anything about forum themes)

    Could even give the themes appropriate names... eg: FO, FO:NV, Fallout 76
