Why do Koden's posts never show up when I go to the thread?!

There were tons of us who were around from closed Beta (May 2013) until the past year or so. That's 3-4 years of playing this game. Sure, there were a lot of complaints, but let's be honest, the forums are such a small part of the community. Most players don't even bother coming here. Also, in spite of all of those complaints, many of those players were spending countless hours of their free time to try into grow the game by promoting competitive play, making podcasts, youtube videos, maps, etc.
Facts are the game never had whatever "it" is that gains a game popularity. The game also never really grew the two things that give games popularity these days: Dedicated popular streamers and competitive play. Maybe back in 2013 streaming wasn't as big as it is right now, but even as of 2013, Twitch was sitting at 45M unique viewers (says Wikipedia). YouTube reviewers pretty much unanimously trashed the game. Most older AA players tried the game and shortly after moved on. Word of mouth was not all that great. Maybe the game would have fared better if it left closed beta later, didn't have the whole training theme on day 1, or didn't shun its past (It still boggles my mind that AA2/3 maps weren't a huge part of this game). I don't know. The players who stuck around for three or four years did so with nothing to gain except to take a game that they saw potential in and try to grow its popularity. Eventually, people grew tired of waiting and moved on... as is their right.
Facts are that AAPG is over 4 years old on an old engine and was never all that popular to begin with. To say that it's the few people who are still around's problem that this game is bleeding players is ridiculous. The game hasn't even had a major update with the exception of VIP mode and a few maps since October 2015. I personally haven't touched the game since January and don't intend to until maybe the promised Sandstorm update... even then I'm sure any return I have to the game will be short lived.
I check up on the forums on occasion to see if there's anything new or an interesting discussion, but let's be honest, AAPG on PC is dead. I hope for the Dev team's sake that the PS4 version does better, but I'd much rather see a new AA game if anything. Hopefully the Army won't flush the dev team for the next one (if there ever is one) and they can build on the good things from this version and make something that will work better for the modern gaming environment. Personally, I'm not so sure if that's a round based shooter anymore. The modern gaming audience doesn't want to wait 5 minutes if they died quickly to get back into the game.

Meanwhile, I get banned from another inner hospital server. At least I could play in the official servers.
There's very few servers I can play in nowadays
Game was a bit more enjoyable
Admins, or badmins are burning one end of the candle

Though tempted, I've never blocked anyone on any forum, because I usually consider everyone to have SOMETHING to add, and I should be open to that.

RIP Koden btw [*] You will be missed. Still can't grasp the concept of hiding people's posts without telling them. Now that there was a clear statement about the state of the game, are we gonna get one for this weird moderation choice as well?
