    Their wives probably don't let them play games, which is why they're angry all the time and only post in GD since they can't post about games without playing any :)

    If we don't want to up the standards inside, how about actively degrading the standards of the rest of the internets?

    If it was impossible to post about games without playing them, this forum would be long dead.

    Well there is no point either in talking and never playing.

    Well, I disagree by the reasons mentioned above, but I also wanted to add that my point isn't that the Codex is better for having GD (and some times other parts) work like a public toilet, but that trying to solve the problem by having a tougher moderation will create a new problem in its stead, one that might be even worse, I think.

    Hey, not our fault we are good at sniffing it out.

    I know thinking isn't your strong suit, you edgy shitposter, you, but there is a huge fucking difference between "Fuck this shit. I've had it and I'm out." and emo forumwhoring cry-me-a-river ranting and raving. Copx isn't posting so he gets some attention as a special snowflake. He's posting to draw attention to the fact that codex has some shit moderation going on. So how about you fucking think before you type?

    Drop these fucking moderators. Being laid-back is good. Letting people do their own thing is good. But when this gets moderators to start getting uptight over users and start running the show, we have a fucking problem. Copx didn't need this shit, and neither do the rest of us. RPG Codex is home to a special type of curmudgeonly asshole: The kind who is sick and tired of fucking mods who censor us and shut us down for "the greater good." It leads to fucking incestuous communities where mods surround themselves with brownnosing scum and make us fucking enable retards by pretending they deserve respect and welcome instead of telling them to their face they are fucking stupid and need to get their shit in order if they ever want to get taken seriously. And even before any of that down-the-slippery-slope shit, mods make us suffer the basic problem of not being able to say the shit we want to say. And that, my friends, is fucking annoying.

    Yes, the codex needs mods to stop goatse-bait and spamwhores, but no, we don't need fucking mods retardoing posts just because it can lead to OT or rude shit. If a thread is well and truly being fucked, then I might see why a mod might feel compelled to retardo, but preventative moderation is fucking bullshit. As Brayko said:

    And we forumgoers can control the dumb shit ourselves without moderation. When vots started being a fucking tool all over marine_jake's thread, the other posters sorted him out (Link).

    I dunno. "Tastefully done rape" actually has a point between the comedy though. Play Dragon Age: Origins with the City Elf vignette and you'll see that there are rape scenes which are mangled so badly that you come to understand the need for some real literary caliber in devising rape scenes. There are a lot of two-bit writers out there who feel cool using rape scenes for shallow pity points and obvious villainy instead of any real exploration of rape issues. And even those who try to explore how "serious" rape is usually go overboard instead of staying realistic.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind some tastefully done rape in a game.

    I don't know how personally he takes shit, but it looks like he's taken moderation too far. He needs to leave his moderation privileges behind if this is how he mods.

    So? What makes you think I care about the purpose of the post? My only intent was to draw attention to the fact that you, copx, sound just like the whiners that you denigrate. That is all. I don't care if you did it with a sweet, good heart, because I only want to point out how butthurt you sound, how you can't seem to make a lucid argument in an even handed manner. By the way, hyperbole and over-reaction only make people suspect you to be a troll, whether you are or not, so you undermine your own argument. Good job!

    By the way, if I'm an edgy shitposter, shouldn't I be the one bearing the brunt of moderation? Moron, lol.

    You've also got me wrong if you think I'm pro-moderation in any means. I don't really care. But I do want to reiterate that youuuu are a whiny faaag

    Oh please. I spent 99% of my time on the Codex making one liners and harvesting brofists. Haven't been modded once.

    Also, people need to volunteer before a mod can be dropped (or rather, replaced).

    Oh lord, you take this place too seriously. It's hard to have a laid-back forum when people fight for rights on a forum as if it were life sustaining. The fact that you have to make an alt, as if people care about your posting history on your main name. Is this high school?

    Copx posted this because he's an emo attention-whore. If he really only wanted to point out shitty moderation, he would have gone through the correct channels first, meaning he'd have contacted DU about it.

    :avatard: It's kind of funny to me that Jaesun gets all the flack for being the Codex's iconic "evil moderator" despite not moderating the forums that are most prone to shitposting. Seriously, you care about the moderation in GRPG and GG that much?

    Jaesun has the irritating habit of shunting anything that has even remotely something to do with Groroius Nippon off to General Gaming messing up completely cRPG General appropriate discussions. This has mostly stopped with the creation of Desu Desu Ghetto but still sometimes comes up. I can also only be angry about shit moderation in the parts of the forums where I actually post.

    Do people even care where threads are? I have the same discussion in certain threads regardless of what forum they're in. As long as everything doesn't get shunted into a single forum, pushing down all other threads, I'm happy.

    Except for jRPG. I won't touch that filthy fucking place.

    ITT: copx displays off-the-charts levels of butthurt, quits, re-registers with an alt, shows even HIGHER levels of butthurt, and refers to himself in the third person. :lol:

    If you browse multiple subforums sometimes it's hard to remember where a thread is. For example, I'm always looking for the Dark Souls thread in General Gaming before remembering it was punted to the jRPG forum.

    Makes sense. Although the only time I really go looking for threads is when they stop giving me alerts.

    Which is another issue I'd like to ask about, seeing as this thread is essentially useless now. How do I get threads to continue giving me notifications even if I don't post in them for a long while? It seems after a certain amount of times following the notifications but not posting they simply stop appearing in the notification window. Even if you Watch a thread, it seems to happen.

    That's true, I missed some posts on my own threads because of this.
