Quote from: "AgtFox"

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.


Too bad.  I enjoy gonegold as a place where I can have those discussions along with my gaming news and movie reviews, recipes, and scans from Maxim and whatnot.  I don't have the mental capacity to split myself among multiple sites, and I hate those highly partisan forums, because they're full of people like me.

Which is not to knock consolegold and what you've built here AgtFox.  Seems like a nice place.

I'm with Tareeq on this one.  One of the primary draws for me to GG was the opportunity to discuss controversial subjects in a (usually) adult and reasonable manner.  I will miss the GG forums...

Another refugee checking in...

I'll miss GG if it's gone, since it's been my 'home' for several years.  But, if everyone jumps over here, then, it's not really any different.  GG hasn't been updated as a regular site in so long, I was only really attached to the community and good forum conversation.  And if everyone's here, then I won't miss the old GG at all.

Oh man I'm gonna relish the few hours when I have more posts than Eightball. Until he goes off on some patent-lawyering-dental-Redskins thing and puts me back in my place. smile

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


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.


I'm sorry.  That's all the information they were prepared to give me.  I don't think the person I was talking to had any more information.

Yet another refugee here. Sorry if it smells funny, I kinda fell out of the boat and had to swim the last few yards. I know it will take some time to get rid of the wet wookiee smell.

Anyone got some Fabreeze??

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.

This looks to be a good place to talk about games and Quarter to Three's R&P forum is pretty active.

To everyone that is just now coming in, here is the short and sweet of the rules: Keep it civil, and respect one another. For the rest you can read the House Rules here and pay attention to them. Unlike the "flexible" nature of the GG mods, the Powers That Be here do not screw around. Be respectful, play nice with the other kids and have fun, and you'll be fine. Thank you. smile

Don't get the wrong impression.  I don't rule with an Iron Fist or anything akin to that.  I just don't have tolerance for certain things, badmouthing Rich being at the top of that list.

It's only been a day and I'm having withdrawals!  Seriously, GG was the only forum I posted on, though I did/do browse several.  Overall it's a great group of folks, the same who are here, so here I be!  Bleh, I hate being an FNG all over again, but at least I'm not alone  :wink:

Heya folks, Leeabe from GG here.

Can't say I am surprised about GG, if it is gone. Rich hasn't had much time (or maybe interest) for awhile now. I would think he would have told us it was coming down though.

Woah...I'm gone for two days...

Anyway, it does look like Gone Gold has finally gone away. I am sad to see it go, but it's not like we didn't know this day was coming (when the front page isn't updated for months on end, you know your days are numbered) and we still have this site to hang out on...so it's not all that bad.

I would have thought so too.  While I do appreciate the extra readers and such, in a perfect world Rich would come back and revive Gone Gold for good.

If any refugees need cheering up, they can still enter the contest at my website (well, at least until midnight).

I was going to put that on the GGF.  Oh well.  Hopefully Ron won't ban me for this. :wink:

Another refugee here. I keep clicking on the forum but nothing happens  :cry:

Still, it's only been a day. Even if the forums did go kapoot, I have hope someone will get them restarted. The domain is still there, perhaps just need a new host. It may take a while but I think the site will revive in some fashion. Until then, I'll be happy to browse here, though I admit I don't own a console. Well, post-SNES that is.
