Quote from: "Knightshade Dragon"
We need to evaluate some forums like R&P (it seems religion was the big offender for most people...

What gave you that impression? The big offender was the partisan trench fight surrounding the presidential elections. Religion didn't play a prominent role in the pre-R&P EbG.
Quote from: "Knightshade Dragon"
maybe we trial run without religion?

That won't work, because there is no feasible method to delineate religion from philosophy. You'll end up with a ban of quoting from the Bible while lots of philosophers will freely spread their potentially offensive world views, including religious people pretending to be non-religious.

Perhaps you could ban all metaphysical discussion in general, but I fail to see why that would be necessary or enjoyable.

EDIT: Remembering that the QUOTE tag works properly on non-ancient forum software

I'm afraid the only  "consoles" I own are two old Gameboys(not the advanced ones either). A big one and a small one and about a dozen games.

I just want to add my thanks to the CG guys for accomodating the GG refugees.

I'm a longtime lurker of the GG forums (old name - DirkG), but now I'll revert to what I use most of the time (those on the CoTN beta may have seen my posts smile )

Maybe I'll start posting here a little more - who knows???

I also agree with the current No R&P rule.  Forums that discuss things other than R&P are simply better off without any R&P at all.

Man...what a weekend from hell.  First my SBC/Yahoo DSL has been down since Friday and I just got it back now.  Then no response from Gone Gold......so I journey over here.  Doesn't sound too good for us GG'ers.  I hate when crap like this happens and there is absolutely no warning.

Good to see that a temp/permanent home may be in place.

I don't get the animosity towards an R&P forum. If you don't want to deal with R&P, don't go in the forum. How is any other facet of the forums affected by R&P?

Well, I have to weight the amount of time the moderators will have to spend on that forum.  It soaks up 10x more time to moderate than any other one as religion and politics tend to bring out the absolute worst in people at times...

I just emailed him.

...Unless he's going by a different username. (Which hopefully isn't the case. I only have enough room in my brain to remember one updated moniker and the artist formerly known as T-Dub has taken it already in a blatant display of hero worship.)


I emailed him earlier today when I got the news of you people over here... Haven't heard back yet.  You know those northerners though. Tongue

Dang.

I'd like to say thanks to Knightshade Dragon and the other powers that be here for being so accommodating. Even reasonable folk might see this horde of homeless gamers camping on their yard and be a little defensive about it. Not you guys though. You guys here at Console Gold have been gracious hosts at the least.

All that said though, I don't want to relocate. I want to go back home. Gone Gold was my only source for game news, reviews and general info for a couple of years now.

If Gone Gold is gone though, and you all open up PC game forums, I'll probably have to stick around.

Here's to the future.

Someone posted on one of the many "WTF Happened?" threads that they had been in touch with Bill and he knew nothing.  Nothing.

Hello all.. good day to all! I found CG two days ago but did not register until today. I was hoping that GG's problem is only temporary but from the looks of it.. sigh.. frown

Nevertheles, life moves on... Tongue

I'm surprised that Bill Harris' blog did not mention anything abt GG.. does he know? [/i]

Now that I've had more time to think about it...
(1) ConsoleGold rocks. So kind to be allow us to use here as a temporary (permanent? :cry: ) home.

(2) Whatever the reason for the sudden disappearance of GoneGold will suck since it sounds like the problem has nothing to do with technical stuff.

Isn't Stephen's email a GG email?  Hopefully he has another (and someone has it).

No word back from Andy yet, so I guess there might never be a proper explanation for what happened.

Didn't Rich kind of wig out several years ago, and give up the site, only to apologize a couple of days later.

I guess if it happened once, it could happen again.

And I'm assuming that Rich has Andy's phone number?

Hmmmm, I'll let it go at that, until more info becomes available.

IIRC, he was under enormous stress over something, and was going to give up the site, and then decided not to, or was talked out of it, or whatever.

I guess the final word as to what's happened will come from Stephen. Apparently, he's the only one besides Rich with the password as well.
