    Hey, maybe some forums retain their identity over the years. Most don't, though. I've sat through a lot of forum evolutions where old people leave and are replaced with newer 'generations' of posters. Then you get forums where the community stagnates because older posters take up a hostile attitude towards newer members and essentially chase them away as they join, and not necessarily because the newer members are all shit-posters/ More often than not, because the older members have formed cliques.

    I'll say one thing, though; I've never been to a forum where things were presently better than they were in the past. Someone is always going on about how things were better in the old days. I'm guilty of it myself. In 5 years I'm probably going to look back and remember 'how much better' things were in 2012/2013.

    That's actually normal human behavior and also expected.

    As time passes we tend to remember only what was good and forget the boring and most of the bad and annoying.
    That's why you get old people talking about the past as it was always something better.

    Yeah yeah. Like I said, there was plenty of shitposting back then too (and the Codex was always a bunch of angry old men), but you gotta admit there is a difference between "you must equip the ring" and "tasteful rape" if we're just looking at some superficial Codex memes from 2003 v 201x.

    tldr: get off my lawn!

    And in 2023 we'll be talking about the good old days when the Codex was an Android app.

    In 2050 we will talk about how the forum was better when it was still on Earth.

    Tasteful rape meme lost its meaning after Bioware made it into a core game feature.:(

    Tasteful rape was already a meme back in '08, or even '07, don't really remember but I hadn't been long on the Codex before encountering that one for the first time. It was based on Volourn's modding efforts and his team members leaving cause of him planning to include tasteful rape, as far as I remember.

    If you want to look for a tasteless 201x meme, it's the tranny stuff that started with Kaiserin and became common with SMA.

    If people get laid then they won't play games, if they don't play games they won't come to the Codex, if they don't come to the Codex the Decline will kill us all!

    :killit:
    Say no to sex!

    Well, at least I can attest to the fact that you're no longer a virgin.

    "Tasteful rape" is also a legitimate question about a game feature, though. There are times when killing gets boring, you know.

    Careful, if you keep saying things like that then scat fetishists will find their way here from Google.

    And I'm sure they'll be quite civilized and productive members compared to us :lol:

  25. I think a lot of the rightwing stuff started with kingcomrade. At least, he opened the door for their shitposting.

    Also, when did Saint_Proverbius disappear? Was it at around the same time?
