  3. So, what you are implying is that people who have backed the respective kickstarters cannot into following them and so you have to boost the outreach, because...?

    I actually was offered the job of sole codex news poster wayyy back when; I declined due to time constraints (and it actually being unpaid work) so the job went to VentilatorOfDoom This was years before Infinitron joined btw.

    Anyhow I doubt anyone else can compete with Infinitron's dedicated, quick and detailed news coverage so I am happy for him to stay in his thankless role. Though perhaps if looking for a successor we could have multiple people assigned covering different genres or different companies (so someone covers AAA+ devs, someone else Indie news, then within that someone does RPGs, someone action-rpgs, someone strategy-rpgs, someone else convers only general company news, etc)

    All the reviewers should be chased off. That is God's work. If people were supposed to be lemmings blindly following what their betters tell them to like or dislike we wouldn't have free will. But we do, so we shouldn't. If you need more proof just look at the Democrat party in the US. Cults are supposed to be bad, not the standard. The fact that reviews hide all pertinent facts about a game to a bare minimum or out of the review and shroud them around paragraphs of useless, bad opinions should tip normal people off to how fucking useless they are to thinking adults who believe in science.

    Ouch, grating stuff.

    How about:

    Resident Arcanum modder Drog Black Tooth has released a new version of the Arcanum High Resolution Patch which he has enriched with some very useful new features. For starters, configuring it is now much easier and very much more convenient all round and, on top of that, a game breaking bug has now been fixed, bigger fonts have been added and new tools have been added for easy running on modern systems. A full changelog and a list of features is available here:

    I see a reason to respond to this.

    Infinitron is doing a great job as a news reporter (or "News Jew" as he was called a while back) and I'm willing to debate/fight people that think otherwise.

    But I also know Infinitron to be one of the worst Moderators of the RPG Codex - ever. How he can fuck up whole threads because *reasons* is PHD material in and of itself.

    So I think it's best to leave him to what he's best at, and exclude him from all other activities.

    (No, I don't want any of those activities myself.)

    Carry on.

    The news section is doing shit because, 1) there is only a single news poster, and 2) of all people it had to be a hybrid of a jew shill and a low standard PoEfag.

    I too would enjoy less clutter. My RSS feed being full of kickstarter updates has conditioned me to click "mark as read" on every new entry, making it effectively worthless. Couldn't we just have a single post that gets updated? (or is that the megathread that was referred to?).

    But oh well, it is a preference thing and the newsposting gig does seem to require a lot of work that I am unwilling to do so beggars != choosers.

    This thread is about Infinitron's newsposting. Discussion of his moderation is off-topic and should probably be split into a separate thread.

    Anyhoo, TL;DR without the TL, the choice isn't between Infinitron and the perfect newsposter, it's between him and nothing. It's not like he's stopping anyone else from applying. He may not be perfect but he posts news that is relevant and does so regularly. Since he hasn't had a mental health crisis in recent memory he is probably over-qualified for the position anyway.
