Vapourware Separation of all political topics from the discussion of art(video games) leads to echo chambers.

    It was not even two pages of RELEVANT, I repeat, RELEVANT, semi political argument in relation to the universe of the video game. This is normal. It's how discussion works. It even had a clear ending, I specifically finished my point and said enough. How is making a dozen jokes about DLCs better forum "content" than like talking about the perception of the evolution of the setting in modern days? It's especially annoying when you already have a certain lean in the overall positions held by people on this forum because denying somewhat heated argumentation leads to preserving this status quo which deepens the echo chamber. Every casual unchallenged quip leads to a staler and staler environment.

    I understand the great scare of GD overflowing full force into the RPG forums, but there has to be reasonable level of tolerance of "gd topics" outside because "gd topics" permeate life which videogames often portray.

    If this forum is meant to be about like no limits discussions of RPGS then you must tolerate the fact that sometimes disagreements exist outside of the sanitized scale of whether turn based or real time with pause is better.

    In conclusion

    Stop cutting threads so much Infinitron holy fuck

    Actually, that is Hivemind, not an alt. I went into an older thread to look for something and all his posts were missing. Took me a second to remember I blocked this nut thinking it was an alt.

    I agree 100% with OP.

    In addition, it is be clear that many RPGs have deliberate political content (and no, I am not one of those who believe that "everything is political"). Why on earth wouldn't we discuss about it in the game thread? It is actual content!

    Er.... here is the game thread. You can discuss some of the content of the game, but not all the content of the game. sign: RPGCodex.

    lol, right now there is a page and half of like unprompted muh gays and trannies muh sjws with no like point whatsoever, but if I defend antifa as a good choice for representing the bruja clan in modern night it gets oy vey'd to oblivion

    this is what I mean about echo chambers, a thread is not derailed if everyone agrees with each other and happily nods as they all murmur the same thing so it stays connected to the thread, but woe is you if you dare disagree because then you are OFF TOPIC!!!!!!! and you must be cut off to preserve the, the, .... uhm, topical purity of a thread ??

    I remember the old Hivemind being slightly more subtle... perhaps it's just nostalgia :negative:

    Codex 2014 Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    I don't know who this bitch is in the first place, but I see a need to point something out here.

    When making a post in Site Feedback to request demand something, it is pointless to just start ranting about something that took place somewhere on the Codex forum, without context. Half of the reason for posting in Site Feedback is to convince the admins, the other half to convince the Codexers.

    And without context there's slim chance of any convincing taking place.

    Try again from the start. Build a case. Convince us.

    Dawg! Here is the Codex!
    People can check out any time but they can never leave.
    Which is why we laugh at the ones who nuke their accounts.
    Cause sooner or later they would return,
    but their accounts are wasted~
