Does this mean I have to start all over with getting enough trader feedback to top Whiteboyskim in the W's? Crap!

Prepare thyself WBS! Bring it!
Hahhaa...it does bring up a good point.  I'll extend the feedback ratings here should that need come to pass.


If you decide to do so, let me know.  I have the master feedback list, minus the most recent couple of pages (I am past due on updating).

Well, I have been lurking over there for years and I have made the migration.   I hope it is just a technical issue.

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.

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.


Wow. I can't tell you the number of warm fuzzy feelings I got from all of that.

Seriously.

Hmm.  www.tookmyballandranhomeweepinglikealittlegirl.com, I'm told.

Also www.popehat.com :wink:

This looks like a very nice place, though.  Maybe I would have posted here before if I had owned a console more recent than an Odyssey II.

Like I said in earlier posts here, we welcome PC gaming talk and if the rumors of GG death's prove true (hope not) we would probably open specific PC forums and try to somewhat create the same setup as GG has.

Another GG stragler, paddling to the island.

I know how much I'd miss the old place if it ever goes away (still thinking positive here).  Don't post much but I've gone to that site just about every day for the past few years for game reviews (new and old and very old), recommendations (hardware, software, music, celebrity dating, etc), humor, controversy, and so on and so on....

Keeping two fingers crossed for its continued existence, and two more for Rich.  oh, and thanks for the refuge.

So that you can make PC games the red-headed stepchild that console games were on GG? :twisted:   Reeeeevenge! :wink:

Hoping the best, prepared for the worst.

PS, I take it that this site is completely separate from GG, and what happens to one does not happen to the other?

Yeah, they moved to seperate servers awhile ago.

Knight--sorry for stepping on your Rich toe.  It's cool if you are friends or whatnot, just, if you're running this place "as Rich would have wanted," I'm going to go ahead and abandon ship.  Actions "in Rich's name" ruined Gone Gold, and I'd hate to see it happen here.

I actually got so involved in work, that I worked late.  Curses!!

If GG is truly gone, that is just miserable.  I'll have to start over with my Quinnian nonsense somewhere else, with no 10 page threads to link to...the horror.

Fuck it, it'll be easier to just stop being a Quinnite.

No need to leave Ebonstone.  I just won't take anyone badmouthing Rich.  We might differ on our management styles or anything else for that matter, but I'll step up to the mic and say that I appreciate him and what he has done for the industry as a whole.  At the end of the day though, its my name at the bottom of the check, if you catch my drift.

MR. FED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your insight will be more than welcome here, old friend. Glad you at least signed up.

For all the newbies, the forums here are a good place to hang your hat. As we've only had a few dozen guys posting at any given time it's not been the liveliest at times, but it's steadily grown. All are welcome (except that Kahless tool) so by all means enjoy it.

RM9 - all we need is someone to get Smoove_B over here and then we can all kick back and relax. biggrin

Well, on the bright side, I finally get a chance to dump my stupid "MacHinE" moniker from GG.  smile

Really, really sucks to see it go.....but life will go on, eh? I really am surprised that there was no official word of it's demise. That kinda leads me to believe that there is a server problem. I can't believe they would just pull the plug without so much as word to us.
