Frankly, I like the new title.  Although I'm sad that such serious issues had to spur the change, I always thought CG would eventually change into a new site as it expanded its coverage.

Me.  I'm really happy with the change - just hating how we got here.  The end results will be worth the work.

I ditto everything KD said. I like the name, I like the freedom, I like the new identity, the whole nine yards. In fact, I like the name better.

I just spit on the way this happened, or those that made it necessary to happen like this.

And it's a change that's been in the works for some time.  It just had to happen a bit sooner than expected.

I guess since your were covering more than console gaming, Console Gold was anachronistic.

I really like the new logo and the colors in it.

I have a small suggestion on the banner text -- maybe make the end G in GAMING and the T in TREND match up with the interlocked "GT" logo?  The TREND would have to be offset down a little bit.  So it would look like GAMIN(GT logo)REND.  Just a random thought.

I actually changed it a couple times yesterday till I decided this one was super cute. I liked  Goggles Calvin a lot, but I want to change him every week or so so you guys don't get bored.

I probably am going to start incorporating funny quotes into my sig from C&H too, but that is still in the planning stages.

Here's a recent article about the Calvin and Hobbes creator... Seems he's a recluse:

I like the change.

I just noticed that consolegold.com has a notice posted on it other than the Netsol one.

I don't know KD or any of the Gaming Trend staff. But my experience on this site over the past year gives me the impression that they are an honest bunch, and I tend to give their words a certain weight because of that.

I'm also sitting here taking into consideration what happened to Gone Gold.

I knew Rich LaPorte at one time. My dealings with him corraborate, behavior-wise, what KD, the'Fool, etc. have said about him being incommunicado.

Taking all of this (which is merely the best my poor writing skills can convey what is actually going through my mind at the moment) as a whole, that new notice on consolegold.com pisses me the fuck off.

**edited to add that the consolegold redirect has now dropped the hateful text and replaced it with a link to gamingtrend.com. Glad to see that.**

Luckily I'll get over it, and I think any setback Gaming Trend may experience because of recent events will eventually be overcome. Then this site can fulfill it's potential (site feature-wise, community-wise as well as game industry-wise) without the shadow of a nuerotic prick hanging over it.

With all the threads on multiple sites about this, I don't know why I chose this one to spew vulgarity about something I have no part in, but there ya have it. Thanks for letting me move over with ya'll.

I like the change and glad to see the frontpage is back. But something about the new medals on game reviews just does not look right me.

Any plans to change the site now?
