I was clearly freaked out when I clicked on my favorites link and BAM, whole new look.

Shoot I just visited it last night... man.. Still don't know what to think about it, but I like the idea that you've gone in an opposite direction from GG.


Just thought of something that I am certain this BBsystem supports, skins. Are you going to create some and then enable them? A friend of mine runs a board with this software and he's got skins so we can each view the board in a manner we choose. Just a thought.

Some um, when are you gonna put me in charge  :wink:

KD -

Everything looks fantastic.  I am extremely impressed with the site.

Now about RULE #3.... Does this mean I have to eaze my way in to giving devil a hard time?   :wink:

Forums are nice too by the way.

Congrats on the successful launch!

Custom Skins are definetely in the future (and not just for the forums)

know what's cool? My member number here is the same as at GG.  It was meant to be.  Ponderous.  Seem's I'm always 25th to the party slywink.

Site looks great.

The new logo is fantastic.

However, does this mean that the Console Gaming forum on GG is going to die or be killed?

Very sweet El, very sweet... So can I get my old job back  :twisted:


ATB, I'd be willing to bet that the Console forum at GG slows down even more than it is. I kinda prefer this one allready because I can break my discussions up further, discuss Xbox over there and Cube here and that way we don't get as much confusion, no more putting (XBOX) in a thread title...

Thanks for the compliments, Qbe, and everyone else for that matter. May you all enjoy the new look, design, etc, of the new site. We worked long and hard on every aspect of it.

Especially that blasted Search portion of the site up top. smile

As for what happens to Console Gaming up on GG, that's a good question. Odds are it's going to quiet down even more so than it has in the past. I know for one that I'll be posting here far more than I did over on GG.

You have no idea how much your compliments mean to the staff and I.  This was a labor of love/hate for us for over a year of solid work. It is good to see it pay off.

It's going to be kept around, but as many folks have guessed, it's probably not going to see as much attention any more.  There aren't any plans to get rid of it completely or fold it into the General Gaming Discussion forum, however.

Hey, Great start.  It looks much smoother than my launch and it's orders of magnitude larger.  I know what that means in terms of work.  Congrats.

A suggestion though, you might want a link from the forums back to the main site.  Perhaps the ConsoleGold text above the welcome or the CG symbol.  Keep up the good work. :mrgreen:

Don't think that's the Tebunker you're thinking of, though I could be wrong.  (Think it's Tortoise from GG).

Anyway, nice looking site guys.  No more horrifically ugly times new roman side bars = teh win! slywink  Glad to hear you'll be taking care of the generic-feeling default phpBB skin too.

With the new look and all I've finally decided to join.  I've been lurking here for as long as I can remember but never took that next step of joining.  So Hi everyone.

As a side note, it feels so odd to be on a forum and not put things about my car in my sig.  Every other forum I'm on is Mustang related.  I guess I should put something in there about having an XBOX, huh?

First day and already pulling in a former lurker.

Site looks great guys.

Just a quick question though, is there at some point going to be a way for us to set which of the pages comes up first? I'd far prefer to have the news pop up on the front page first. Sure I could just bookmark the news page instead of the actual index, but geez.. I"m lazy here. Come on. slywink

The gathering of everything up front reminds me too much of IGN. Of course, the site looks great, and if there won't be options like that, I'll get over it in about 10 minutes and be perfectly fine smile

Speaking of IGN.. I went to visit them today and discovered.. They're site is now even more bloated and hard to use! Rah!

I guess I'll just continue getting more and more of my console stuff from good ol' CG.

Just in case you were still wondering devils and kathode:

Tortoise = tebunker ~ Tebunkerthenextgeneration



The few weeks off really helped and so did a new online identity, I just recently went back to GG because I couldn't stand not having an intelligent place to talk games, especially my Xbox. Ign just can't cut it. That and the Tortoise name is/was a great to get a fresh start.


And I'd love to get the old moderator job back. It was enjoyable to be part of that group over at GG, and I know I allready like the crew here. That would certainly help take the double, triple and quadruple duty some pull here. Just DO NOT make me the mod of the Nintendo section...

Heh, good deal then.  Welcome back.  The reason I thought it must be someone different is that I saw Tortoise make some big Xbox-positive post on GG, and I thought "Nah, obviously not him" biggrin

And Knight, read my criticism on the sticky over at GG... I don't feel like putting it here. smile

Looking towards to being a veteran member of this forum 2 years down the road! I never got the chance to be one at GG. Here's mine at CG!
