Title: Maintenance and codex updates
Post by: AgingMinotaur on August 10, 2020, 03:25:39 PM
Commenting the recent updates (https://forums.roguetemple.com/index.php?topic=5263.15), but I didn't want to clutter the official thread.

Hefty piece of work, well done, Slash. I like the new forum theme, and hope the under-the-hood stuff makes your life easier. The rearranging of the subforums seems sound enough. Although it's a bit sad to see Off Topic go, it has really been lost for so long anyway, so it almost doesn't matter at this point. It would be a blessing if the tide of spambots could be kept at bay. I also applaud the explicit encouragement of Rogue-lite discussion. Although I hardly play -lites myself, I like to read about and sometimes try them, as there are a lot of interesting design overlaps.

Also, I see you gave Krice the boot :o Don't know it it's permanent or what the details are. I'll say that I have found Krice to be an acquired taste, with actual input on the topic of RLs, even if his wording is a bitch a lot of the time, and I personally almost always disagree with him (and have admittedly myself been a bitch about that on occasion). Having said that, there are numerous examples over the years where he stepped way over the line with regards to blatant racism and sexism/homophobia (etc., but those two in particular). So I think I can grok that there is a rationale behind the ban.

As a general principle, it's not always possible to keep a community inclusive by having no rules of engagement. If someone makes statements that will make other members feel directly threatened or abused, it may be right to have OP either comply to a level of respect or else face a ban, rather than allowing those other members to just leave in silence.

As always,
Minotauros

Thank you! I have some nice plans for the temple including a modern MUD kind of thing, and reviving the roguemundi. But before diving into that I felt these actions were appropriate and needed (it's never easy)
