If you never see our local Marxists, you are not reading the threads they frequent. Healthy decision, but it leads to a biased view on the composition of Codexia.

The codex is a melting pot of diversity. We have blacks, latinos, gays, chinks, bulgarians/turks, jews, and even canadians.

But for some reason it must all change to suit the needs of leftists or else they feel excluded.

Something I have never understood is the Leftoids urge to come into a place that clearly isn't for them, doesn't want them and doesn't like them and then act like they belong there. And they don't leave either, they would rather endure endless mockery and scorn than go somewhere else. Carlo isn't the only one here who acts like this.

Marxists are insane neckbeards, and most of the people you call "marxists" aren't even Marxists. The number of far right white supremecists and outright Nazis on this forum far outweighs any left wingers. And as I said, I'm the only normal center-left poster on this forum. Normal center-left posters are exactly the people we want to attract.

We need a space under our avatars to include our pronouns. We could replace Location, which no one uses anyway, or just add one. Reasons to do this:

-There are lots of trans Codexers, and even some that were semi-famous porn stars, and this would be a nice way to make them feel welcome.
-I don't know which pronouns other Codexers use, so it would be helpful.
-Codex is known on the internet as a right-wing haven for racists and homophobes, which regardless of your political positions, isn't a great thing for the long term viability of the website. It would be a good way to signal that the administration here doesn't necessarily endorse what many of the forums' members use the forums to espouse. I try to defend Codex as much as possible and let people know that we aren't all racist, gay hating, transphobes, but it's really difficult to do so when anyone can come here and take a screenshot of a bunch of thread titles with racial and trans slurs in the titles.
-No one would have to use it if they didn't want to, so no one would have right to complain.
-It would really piss resetera off. They don't have spaces for people to share pronouns.

Fedora Master his survival is incosenquential to the whole, just as mine and yours is. Life.
His bitching because it's the trend nowadays for "minorities" to bitch is consequential.

The site's tolerance to retards like myself, or of all the other kinds we've got here, is up to the site.
Not -ever- up to any single fucking individual.
Especially when what they're "requesting" is a big ugly toxic can of worms.

It being why i expressed myself without censoring me (and i lasted this long without being offensive..). Honestly surprised with the replies he'd got that far, honestly telling as to what kind of people still lurk here if you think about it; or what that has to say.. And from the staff's side of things? Someone should have given him the zerotol treatment already, just to set the example. He may be the first, but he won't be the last "requesting" this.
Kill it young.

Nothing I'm asking is a requirement. I just want an option. If you can't handle that, don't use it.

You have the option to log out. Other than that, you're already listing your pronouns as am I. Clearly the option is provided for.

You're the sort who would fuck a guy in the ass without even having the god damn common courtesy to give him a reach around.

I don't care about my pronouns, all I care about is Codex's image. I love Codex and don't want it to become a haven for White Supremacists and homophobes, but admin is driving it in that direction.

Were you planning on building a time machine? Just limit your time in GD.

Either way, this idea is stupid.

You know what's great about worrying about pronouns? It means you don't have actual problems to worry about in your life!

Name 1 black Codexer (who still posts here).
Does RPG Watch have active black users? Any other RPG forums?

Maybe they are just not that interested in RPG's.

smaug is part black from what I remember and he is still here. Don't know about darkpatriot - some say he is black too. All the Brazilians are 100% white though.

The problem is that everyone then has to read your pronouns.
It's not an option affecting only yourself, it's an option affecting everyone else.

With location, it's at least somewhat interesting. With signatures, it's at least somewhat entertaining and sometimes outright useful.
With pronouns, it's only annoying, as only an annoying person would feel the need to shove their pronouns into other people's faces or would even care about being misgendered (by accident or once it is proven to work, on purpose).

If it was a thing in the profile that people have to actively click on and seek out (like the gender currently is), I'd say, eh, okay, whatever...

Again, just look at places that allow such a thing. 99.9% of people who use it are the exact type of person nobody sane wants to deal with as they are just a bag of weak-minded, whiny, self-absorbed, self-righteous, non-stop screeching meatballs trying to meddle in things they don't know shit about.
That's even less of an audience you want to attract in a gaming forum than the rednecked swamp people and their white power fantasies - at least they know (deep down) how dumb they are and keep their meddling and BS to themselves (and the GD forum, so avoid that).

Please implement this feature so I can then proceed to misgender all the leftist troons and hopefully be highly offensive.

Also, my pronouns are Heil/Hitler.
