    The buttons are simple. The true codexian test of will is attempting to decipher a TemplarGR post.

    I think removing the buttons could be an interesting experiment.

    They're useless anyway, especially since you can't rate ratings.

    Your idea is both terrible and wonderful, let's do it.
    I want to see infinite chains of colourful icons extending from every post.
    Only then will the true meaning of the codex be fulfilled.

    Basically what it does is get rid of the many +1 and "no U" posts. We are prestigious and sophisticated people who have not time for that.

    A lot of people actually just rate themselves. If they are butthurt they rate "butthurt", if they are a cuck they rate "cuck" and so on.

    It's like someone spitting in your food and then scream you spit in their soup. In normal life this is quickly be settled by a punch in the teeth, here you have to live with it.

    It also doesn't matter because you can supress buttons with adblockers or just don't pay much attention to them.


    If you for example say that you leave the Codex forever or get completely mad at me so that is makes me laugh I will brofist your post. Even if you're anything but my bro.

    I poke into hornets nests when it was necessary.

    Sometimes bad ratings are an indication that you are doing what you had to do.

    Best metric is the Brofist/Agree ratio to post count to determine if a Codexer is prestigious or not. Burning Bridges is operating at less than 50% which is not a very good sign. In general, I'd say a 50-65% Brofist to post ratio indicates that said poster is a decent enough member. Agrees can be factored in as well if you want a more accurate metric. People that occupy ratios above 70% are generally very prestigious Codexers. Examples of such people are Janjetina, Commisar Draco, JarlFrank, Roguey, MRY, etc. There are many more.

    Going by negative ratings is generally a pretty poor metric, as its very easy to accumulate negative ratings when posting Tweets or news items of despicable things, or if you state an opinion contrary to the Codex hivemind.

    Dreed Codexers such as yourself and Sukhāvatī are the exceptions to this rule so don't worry. Let's not pretend you didn't know that though. If you wanted a compliment you could've just asked for one.

    I like the elephant one. It can mean "Yes that thing is huge" but also "No, that's not what it seems to be". Very metaphysical.

    You have not factored in that ratings were first introduced in 2012 and that a lot of people had 10,000 posts before anyone even harvested their first brofist.

    People post in very different forums which have completely different rating styles. You are not only completely ignoring the history of the Codex before your join date but that in fact a person who has 1000s of ratings and a dumbfuck tag usually is a retard who posts the whole day about nothing but politics and anime. Really smart people (like Yaar Podshipnik) who discuss only in science or game development probably have only a few hundred ratings, most of them positive.

    Also, who the hell are you?
