    What's the forum stance on multi-ratings? Sometimes I want to [​IMG] and :disagree: the same post, what should I do in those cases?

    Decide which one is more important. And if you disagree, then just post what you disagree with.

    We need fractional ratings. Sometimes a post deserves one third of a brofist and two thirds of a parrot.

    I can only tell you how I use them most of the times:

    [​IMG] = "your post is about buttons", "there is no currently available button to rate your post the way I want"
    [​IMG] = "wow, this 3D model/art looks alien", "what the fuck is going on", or "this is out of this world"
    [​IMG] = "this small thing makes me feel a bit less empty inside, but it really shouldn't, because everything else is still going to shit around me"
    [​IMG] = "to do that you need to equip the ring"
    [​IMG] = "who?"

    I'm glad someone explained this to me.

    I've always used it to tag something as "Gay" since I prefer it to "Fabulously Optimistic," and the more recent "You have issues."

    "It Was Aliens" is often used for:

    - Aliens, duh.

    - Sinister or spooky shit

    - Conspiracy Theories in general.

    - Jews

    - Russians (because of the "Little Green Men" meme and the war between Russia and the Ukraine)

    - Things Man Was Not Meant To Know

    [​IMG] was added to allow us to indicate that a thread-opening post should have included a poll, but it can also be used for other button-related purposes.

    [​IMG] is the button form of one of the Codex images (look in the Smilies tab) Prosper a.k.a. the face that never remembered (see also https://rpgcodex.net/forums/forums/prosperium.56/page-88), and that pre-existing Codex image has a long-standing use for indicating ugliness (not sure why someone with a join date of 2007 requires an explanation for this one), but the button is also used as a general expression of disapproval, as well to indicate Lawful Neutral alignment

    [​IMG] is the (in)famous "feels good man" Pepe meme that has just been added even though this specific meme reached peak popularity several years ago

    [​IMG] is often employed to mock a newbie's inability to use buttons or access parts of the Codex, as well as for anything ring- or LotR-related

    [​IMG] is the "who?" equivalent of the [​IMG] for "what?"

    1. [​IMG] = Basically useless. The Kingcomrade of buttons.
    2. [​IMG] = Things that cannot be unseen. As well as opinions that are insane.
    3. [​IMG] = Self-explanatory. The pepe frog is a 4chan meme.
    4. [​IMG] = One of the oldest Codex memes.
    5. [​IMG] = Usually used as “Who?“

    More often used at something that's not coherent. For insane and degenerate things there's [​IMG] .
