Yeah, the site and the forums look great.  This place should be hopping once you get some coverage.  And the best thing is you come up first in google when you do a search for console + gold  biggrin

Dang!  I *love* the new format of the site.  I love the clean front-page with just enough info for me to know whether I want to click into a topic or skip past it.  You guys are doing great!  Major props.

And with some of the rumors about future additions, I think this place is going to kick some serious bootay!  Congrats to Ron and the rest of his team and best of luck to you guys into the future.

Love the new lay out!  Sheesh, now I have to keep up with two forums.  So you guys aren't severing your ties to Rich's site?

Severing the ties?  Eh...I wouldn't say it that way.  Look at it this way...we are both part of the "Gold Network" of sites, we are just headed a different direction than the Gone Gold forums.

Seriously, you ain't gonna do a general chat forum?

A tiny suggestion: remove the "console" from the Road to Gold and Game Trading. If you want to be on your own, separate from Gone Gold, act like it. People who come here should know it's all about console gaming. Gone Gold didn't have "PC Road to Gold" did they?

Raven, the last one was added just yesterday, I'm sure it can be changed.

Any other ideas you guys have can go in this thread that I just started.  Basically I'd like to see your ideas for additions, re-naming, etc. so we have a good amount of ideas out there to choose from.  Thanks much.

Hola!

Like the new forums!  It's a little harder adjusting to the white background (which is burning my retnas), but the speed is great!

Personally, the Console forum was the only one I ever read on GG anyways so I'm quite happy to follow it over here.  Keep up the good work Ron!

We were unfortunately not able to have any other skins ready for the launch.  But believe me, it is in the plans for this to be a very "user choice" forum in how they want it to look.  Can't give a timetable on it though unfortunately.

OK, I had seen the new look of the site on my usual rounds, but I guess I totally missed these new forums.  Great job and I like the look!

It *is* possible to prevent the rezzing of threads older than a certain age.  Anyone care to make a poll?  I'll lock it down if people can justify it.

Pshaw. Zombie threads can be fun in moderation.

Besides, ATB preaching against zombie threads is like seeing GWB speak against illiteracy.

Thread necromancy can be interesting if it's, for example, about a game that came out a while ago that someone just discovered.  I think that as a point of etiquette, though, the resurrector should draw attention that that's what's happening.

Oh, and thanks for the welcome too!

Man, what a stupid thing to complain about.

If it's done just out of boredom, with no real purpose (such as resurrecting a thread about a game you're years late to play), how is doing this different from trolling?  Even when someone does have a reason to bump an old thread, people still get confused by the thread necromancy.  And in that case the date change was even explicitly mentioned.

I dunno, I'd probably feel differently about this case if this or the other bump actually seemed funny.  This one alone could've been harmless enough and maybe even worth a chuckle by itself, but with the other "bad parents!" one being completely pointless, it just makes them both annoying.  If there was a third from the same person I would've reached for the report button.

Sorry, I just wanted to see the reaction of the first post ever made being brought back. Was hoping some of you would reminisce. Seriously though, today was perhaps the most boring day of my life. I was... talking to myself. I need school to resume, now. Sorry to those I offended or annoyed.
