I was thinking about this last night, so here goes.

Is everyone sure that this is a good idea? I mean, its all very well to keep churning out machinima, but there is surely the risk that the Codex/Heritic/Foresaken will just become too big for the Admins to cope and that the site will just implode on itself.

There is also the risk that as the site becomes bigger and even more popular, there is a bigger risk of attracting lots more jerks, like what has happened to the RvB series. Ok, we have had a few incidents between members and the few just plain offensive n00bs. But it is just that: the few. How do we know that as it grows, we wont have flame wars every single day? It will result in driving away the 'real' members who will realise that the Codex is no longer the cool place it is at the minute.

Or possibly worse, you have to have adverts to cover the cost of the site. That annoys me the most, more than anything.

Just a thought before anyone says 'you guys need to make another machima'.

While a small portion of the Warcraft community is less than desirable to hang out with on a daily basis, we wont let this place fall apart just because we have another series going.

The admins and staff will do their best to keep this place the same great community it has always been.

Yeah, what he said.

I mean, you have to remember, we don't like jerks any more than you do. Less, in fact, because we're the ones who have to deal with them. So don't worry, we won't let this place become a haven for villains and evil-doers. We're doing this for fun, this is not our job like it is for RvB, so we're much more interested in keeping it a fun environment, whereas a machinima with a vested interest in a huge fanbase, like RvB, wouldn't want to alienate their customers by telling them to shut up or shove off, you know?

The only reason we're doing this is because we enjoy it. We won't let it become something unenjoyable. Its just too damn enjoyable to let that happen!

Yeah, guys, I'm going to go ahead and assume he was kidding... Because if he wasn't, he's the most amusing heckler I've yet encountered, and I'd like to keep him on as a jester. - Nerrolken
But today, after wading through 30 posts, each of which were the length of a post-graduate thesis paper, functioned on more levels and with more side-points than I can possibly keep track of, and consisted of the densest material I've ever read regarding machinima criticism, I'm beginning to understand the appeal of brevity! - Nerrolken

I didn't think it was possible, but is Nerrolken becoming even MORE witty?

Well, he's becoming more active, anyway. I really wasn't expecting a reply from the Admins, just a discussion from the members.

Not to mention RvB draws a different crowd than the Codex. RvB brings in the people who enjoy their crude humor (not being absolute; their stuff is really funny, too), but there is a different audience for each series.

No worries when t3h noobs come we shall quickly assemble the ANTI-NOOBS council and quickly launch lots of big nukes at each individual noob, and we shall line them up in a row and snipe them all, or put them all in a big group and shoot rockets at them, or stick them with plasma nades and watch them running around and screaming, or we shall use t3h needlers and use t3h stickles and make them explode, and...

Oh whoops, was I saying my thoughts outloud again?
