    From reading older threads, it seems the codex has always had it's share of retarded posters, but before there was hope and interesting discussions to cancel them out. These things won't be brought back by banning anyone.

    Saint_Proverbius for sure. I don't think he's dead but if he was he wouldn't be, he will live forever in our souls.

    edit:
    Looking at the poll makes me sad. Who would have thought VD is already so powerful...

    I wish I didn't have to replace anyone. It was a better site when Saint and Spazmo were around.

    Does anyone REALLY know what happened to them/ Where they are?

    If so, can they shed any light on it?

    Spazmo is alive and well, and he posted on the previous page. After covering RPGs for the last 3 years, he lost his will to live, so he's undergoing all kinda treatments like booze, drugs, and cheap hookers. If the hookers fail to help him, nothing will.

    Honestly? There is nobody else and I'm too old and responsible to leave the site, merely hoping that it will be ok somehow. Role-Player is doing great so far, if he lasts 6 months posting regularly and showing the same zeal he's showing now, then at least we'd have an option. In other words, we'll see.

    If the Codex is truly "dead", why not just close the site? maybe I could kill time doing more enlightening activities, huh? Seriously, if the Codex dies, it's good bye for gaming on my part, which might be a good thing.

    While I'm not always happy with everything VD does (like the whole Oblivion vs. Gothic dreck) I think we should appreciate what he currently does for this site, mainly keeping it alive. Also
    the a bunch of well done interviews which truly enrich the content of this site.

    Would be truly sad if the codex died, and I personly am thankful VD is keeping it alive for the moment.
    More variations in the newspost, stoping this gothic 3 vs. oblivion bullshit and I'd be perfectly happy with VD work here. (Aside from his writing sometimes, but Im no native english speaker either, and compared to VD my english is shit so I wont judge on him about that)

    Also it must be hard for someone who is like the last bastion here keeping the whole site runninh, while all others have left, died or are not really posting very often anymore (DU) to take all the whining and criticism, although as mentioned some of it is justified.

    Dont let the codex die!

    Another well-populated forum without retarded power drunk mods and at least some minimum of intelligent (or at least interesting) discussion would be nearly impossible to find, I think.

    Saint's gone undercover as a janitor over at Bethesda to try and foil their plans for Fallout 3. When you hear the news about how a lone janitor crashed against Bethsoft's offices in an explosive-laden hand glider, stand up and salute your national hero.

    Can't see what all this fuss is all about. For the site to survive we only need someone to pay for hosting and domainname, and that's it. There's no need to maintain the forum -- no need to ban anyone and the mass topic spamming is not very frequent (an emergency actually), you dont need to direct the discussion anywhere because that's what main posters should do.

    Well yeah, news is a good thing and it's stimulating discussion a great deal, but then again it's not completely a must for the forums and community as a whole to survive. Features - even more so. There was a time when features were rare but that didn't turn everything upside down. Dont get me wrong, the features are great, but hey -- aren't we having similarily great and consummate features on forums (at least used to)?: Check the monkey thread.

    So I think you're just a buncha pussies to say something like that.
