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?

    Sounds very Something Awful-like. Apparently the paid sub didn't help in that situation either.

    Imagine going to a gaming forum and talking about gaming. Imagine that. Now, wake up and see the wasteland of /pol/ edgelords we have now.

    I'd rather have diarrhea.

    Would be interesting to see who voted no and then check the number of their posts that are off topic.

    I don't see that crying harder will accomplish it though.

    Sorry, it is delusional to not want to talk about politics in games when the people who make games these days do nothing but throw their political views in your face.

    "The Right"/"Conservatives"/"Nazis" didn't start this. All politics that get inserted into media started out as left-leaning in the 90s and turned to leftist extremism by today.

    You are way too butthurt, and I seem to remember you having several meltdowns which you publicly displayed for days (perhaps even weeks) regarding things unrelated to games. You also have repeatedly gone on prolonged periods of time absent on these forums, and every time you show up you like to pretend how you are a voice of reason and totally mature. Perhaps someone of your mental fortitude, which if these meltdowns are anything to go by is rather low, shouldn't be making conclusions about what other people should do with their free time, and what they should talk about. On a forum which has traditionally allowed all legal discussion.

    Another thing is your fallacious reasoning that people should discuss just this or that, nothing stops anyone from discussing anything, both games and politics, as is proper.

    To all the butthurt brigade, may I recommend the option of ignoring the "problematic" forums entirely? There is literally an option "ignore this forum" for both Politics and GD, as well as all the others, and if it bothers you that there exist a few dozen active users who actively discuss politics somewhere around here, then feel free to solve the problem entirely by simply ignoring the whole forum(s). What exactly is the problem anyway? That people talk about the politics at all? Now that is one pretty idiotic and irrational position to have. That they have "disgusting opinions"? Then may I recommend you grow up and accept the world as it is, and inevitably it will have a sizeable portion of those with "disgusting opinions". And level up your mental fortitude and other attributes which will enable you to deal with such a reality.

    The forum is already split. I'll stick to my side of the Codex, and you go talk about sucking trannies off in your game threads. Okay?

    No, we have plenty of people who like RPGs and occasionally talk politics.

    It is the 1% that is the problem.

    The problem is what's happening in the industry, not what's happening on the Codex.
