Quote from: "Valael"
I certainly hope it's just a technical problem.  No matter how much people say it has changed, it's still the *best* forum I've ever been a part of.
Same here.

I have to believe it's coming back (but, just in case, I better start hinting around to everyone I know that I want a console for my upcoming birthday so I don't feel out of place here. slywink )
I'm with you on both counts.  The GG forum is a database of GG oracle knowledge that would be forever lost, even if every person in the community successfully migrated here.  I can't tell you how often I start researching a new purchase or a solution to a problem with a quick search of the friendly archieved forums of GG (I've done this even for the years I was in lurker mode and not yet a member).  And even though the content has not been recently updated, it would still be a huge loss for me to not have access to the Gold Guide, etc.  But most of all I would miss the community.   When I saw Dbt post a smiley here it hit me as hard emotionally as a tear-jerker of a movie ever could.  

I have a PS1 that I play on, but have almost always been a PC Gamer.  But just last night I was speaking to a console friend and she said she wants me to borrow hers so I can play Metroid Prime.  So it looks like I joined this forum just in time.  I'm also about to buy the mini-PS2 this fall for the joys of San Andreas (I love the PC version of VC, but alas lack the patience to wait for the next PC version to come out).   I have a feeling there is not a more capable group to answer questions for a couple of console newbs like us.    Cool

There's a rumor going around that GG's hosting account was canceled on 10/5. Maybe they're just moving the server?

Mmm, good news indeed if that cesspool of a forum is dead.

The P&R forum, along with the subsequent moderator aggression, influx of taddletail crybabies, and exodus of several key forum members cursed Gone Gold to extinction.

Of course, maybe it's just a technical glitch.  A pity if it's something that... temporary, though.

If you need to justify it to somebody with an excuse, then, yes, yes, you do have to have a console, or multiple consoles, to post to these forums...

Actually it's three times nowadays.

I'm not bitter that I was banned, I'm bitter that the place got as fucked up as it did.

Could be.

I've always fancied a Weekend At Bernie's-like situation where Rich has been dead for a long time now and individuals are just using him and his 'good name' to further their own selfish ends.

That's just me, though.

Off-Topic is like our version of the EBG, so if you feel like going crazy here, feel free.  Just no political or religion stuff please, makes the forum a happier place biggrin


Might I suggest that if gonegold is gone, and if this forum becomes awash with boat people, and if some version of that subforum is considered, it be called Argument Clinic?

It won't even be considered.  When we opened this up we all agreed to no political or religious talk.  There are other forums (including highly partisan ones) for those discussions to take place.

This forum is also a great place to visit and has been on my daily swing through the web each day since I joined earlier this year.  I would miss GG but I'm sure glad there is a refuge over here and I  hope to see more familiar faces.  

Did anyone copy the latest PIFF list?

Thanks for the warm welcome Kightshade. biggrin

Yes.  Console Gold puts subliminal messages in their reviews that makes you buy one or more.

In 2004, the storm of forum instability had come again. Overnight, most of the forum was reduced to cinders. And from the ashes of nuclear devastation, a new civilization would struggle to arise.

            A few were able to reach the relative safety of the large underground Vaults. Imprisoned safely behind the large Vault door, under a mountain of stone, a generation playing their X Boxes, Gamecubes, Dreamcasts and other console devices has lived without knowledge of the outside world.

            Life in the Vault is about to change.

I'm not a rumor.  I actually exist.  I did call.  They did tell me the account was cancelled on the 5th.

My conjecture was that either Rich is changing hosts or GG is dead.

I hope he's changing host, but I'm beginning to doubt.  If Stephen was doing it, I'm sure he'd mention it to the mods.  I don't think Rich would do a move on his own, but what do I know?

I'd much rather be wrong and have Gone Gold back.

This one is still hoping the good ship GG will yet appear suddenly out of the prevailing heavy fog, with rumors of going down forever to the briney deep totally misplaced.

Could you call again and ask -why- it was cancelled?
If Rich cancelled it actively, that's kinda good news -- it'd mean he's alive and aware, anyway.
