What if we split the Codex into two sites: RPG Codex + Political Codex?

What do you think about splitting the politics out to a separate stand-alone website + forums?

    But born in time to finance a CRPG forum with Crypto-Currency...
    :dealwithit:

    Would still be a need to have users educated about even basics stuff like "own your own wallet instead of just using exchanges."
    :kingcomrade:

    Otherwise they will again be subject to the same extralegal tracking and arbitrary usage policing in spite of wanting to money in perfectly legal ways.

    This will not work. The extreme left, which is the ruling ideology today of the USA, the UK and Canada, even if it may seem otherwise, is absolutist in it approach and very "flexible" in defining what is supposedly wrong and right. Have we forgot the Warhorse Studios and Kingdom Come Deliverance? Like I already said, dare to question why is there this or that progressive idea within the game at all - and you are a mortal enemy.

    Have you learned nothing from the past 5 years? You can't please these people so you might as well not even try, don't even engage them as they are a wasted effort.

    Codex is relatively small and hence not really worth the effort, also its focus on games is what still keeps away most people who don't play games at all. "Poldex" on the other hand would get shut down pretty quick if it proved to be too successful.

    How about we leave the forum alone and just give Infinitron endorsements on his LinkedIn. Everyone's happy, no?

    And the same thing is happening in every facet of life.

    But life tends to be more complex than simple left/right. People can have very diverse opinions about religion, economic policies, environmental issues etc. It used to be that you could agree with a representative from the opposing party on a specific topic while being in complete disagreement with him in other topics. Now such act is the most vile kind of betrayal and puts your very being into question. It is insane.

    'round here we have six major-ish parties. Hard commies, soft commies, hard nazis, soft nazis, farmer centrists, greenpeace hippies etc. Yet the past 10-15 years were seeing the same binary polarization. No more compromises or discussion. Looking at the party founding principles, that shouldn't be possible!

    While the left started this extreme demonstration, the opposing side is reacting in exactly same manner (though lacking the ability to cancel things as effectively).

    It is almost like someone was orchestrating the whole thing for their own benefit...

    And the same thing is happening at Codex. There are people who engage in life-long crusade about something they don't like (RTWP, story focus). Which is again insane. It is like going to chocolate lover's club meeting to say that chocolate looks and tastes like shit. And repeating that for years.

    I like how all these politics posters Ive never heard of came out of their politics hole to vote and comment in this thread.

    Let’s be honest, there’s already two rpgcodexes in this forum. Might as well make it official.

    It's doesn't need to be orchestrated. Once the left gained power to cancel people it's natural that the ones that grew in power are people who don't fear being cancelled. Like the far right.

    It is really hard to say whether it is just stupidity or intentional malice.

    I mean, we have conversations about "colonialism" in our universities. In a country that has never had any colonies, has been practically and literally enslaved and destitute until mid 1900. Or "white guilt". For race that was subject to cranial studies just a hundred years ago.

    American cultural imperialism, imported by stupid ignorant people... or intentionally pushed forward to destabilise the Western civilization. Who knows. In any case, the way it happened feels very unnatural.

    Left wing push is completely artificial and obviously backed by mega-corporations, but rise of right wing populism or extremism as a reaction is completely natural.

    Politics aren't more interesting than videogames. The writing usually sucks and every chapter is filled with glaring plotholes, characters are unbelievable and unrelatable, and every story always ends in the same exact way (surprise: it's the jews, what a twist!).

    Last time cops showed on DarkUnderlord doorstep cause of some bullshit harassment complaint from codex he almost sold codex and fled to latin america. Whats going to happen when glowies show up and harass him about hate speech or whatever his police state cooks up? Will he go comatose on the spot? The whole premise of this new forum is garbage, there is no central ground in politics anymore. Anyone who says otherwise is a fence riding shit stain.

    I think we can find a central ground.

    Takes care of both the crazy internet left and the crazy internet right.

    Starting a free speech forum dedicated to politics right now is kind of a declaration of war, with all that this implies. Are you prepared to deal with the counter-attacks?

    As has been said, the free speech political discussion here works because it is hidden on a gaming website.

    Maybe the non.gaming forums should simply disappear entirely. They are a huge distraction and it no longer achieves anything at this point.

    Common ground? Some users have SA songs in their sig, others post extermination phantasies at every opportunity. No moderation my ass. I think there is no common ground and streamlining the Codex would be a the cleanest solution.

    I guess this really encapsulates the mindset of the /pol/sters here. They really aren't on the 'dex for the games but just because it's a nice cover.

    Why not both, I like to play games and talk freely.

    The codex reminds me of a discord chat on call of duty where everybody is calling each other niggers.

    Good new games are a rarity. Lots of other topics to talk about with people from around the world.

    Stop pretending that talking exclusively about games makes you somehow more prestigious, especially if you are over 30.

    The reframe "I don't want to think about politics just play video games!" is perfectly understandable but naive...


    Politics can majorly affect other things people are interested in such as video games.

    If a talented developer isn't able to work on a cool project because they are too busy dealing with being extralegally declared a "ultra bad person of the week".
    If press stirs up a moral panic about a game your interested in for partisan points.
    If developers are preemptively alter or even discard their creative vision due to being frightened of potential "controversy".


    Your gaming experience has been impacted.

    The Political is Personal!
