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

    "Respect", "decorum", "constructive criticism" - All are weasle words used by leftists to suppress open discussion.

    You are not the first to say this. Many have said the same thing, over many years now. Even one of the main admins tried to do this, banning dissenters and cracking down on people that made developers feel unwelcome by criticising them too harshly. The Throne Sitter sent him packing, and the site seems to still be growing. Meanwhile, I cannot count the number of websites that were "respectable" that now cease to exist. No, for some reason, this place just works. The years roll on, and it seems busier every year. The developers continue lurking. The detractors continue screaming. But for some strange reason, the Codex just doesn't seem to stop getting bigger.

    I would say banning DraQ, or even all the liberal posters on the Codex, is still less edgy than wanting to split the site in two. But maybe that is just me.

    If you were to ban all the whiny liberals you'd have to get rid of the site administration as well. :smug:

    I think he was already counting those. I don't see how "three" is attainable otherwise.

    Scrooge, Padzi, Mibbles. Actual active females.
    Lilura - that's a 50/50 chance if you ask me.
    There's some others, but I don't remember the names.
    Oh, and there's maxie. He's currently discovering his female side in the showers of shoutbox prison.

    Scrooge is a username changer, so she can't be considered a human being and doesn't count.

    Mibbles is actually a cat pretending to post through his owner, so she doesn't count either.

    Padzi said mean things about rusty's mom, therefore she lost her female privileges and doesn't count.

    Better luck next time.

    Has popped in a few times since retiring, but largely much too busy with a prestigious career.

    Hmmm decentralisation never leads to anything good. Also the political shit is mainly because there no games to talk about. We haven't had a good rpg in like 2 years now. Last year dungeon of naheulbeuk was pretty good but not AAA for some posers,still good discussion. I believe that with more games coming out we will see a bit of drift toward the rpg forum. I came here for the rpgs as it is me hobby,but now shitpost mainly in the politics because there is no games to talk about. Everything is in EA or kickstarter. I am not opposed to the split,but i doubt that it will be good for either forum,it is splitting the userbase that way, Also sadly i believe that politics have become an inevitable part of rpgs,shoving our heads in to the sand won't change it. People will still talk politics in the rpg forum,as they are part of it. It makes sense to do it if you are afraid of some real world consequence.

    People who come here with suggestions on how to improve the codex by turning it into one of the generic sites they don't visit are an interesting bunch. Like people who think a perfect mix of spices should leave the food tasting like nothing.

    This mirrors daily life, and the way everything has become political.

    You could split the site. But the real world would keep on intruding, and you’ll be right back where you started.

    Splitting the site would also probably kill it.
