Say, with this forum software can we turn it up to page 11?

With this forum software, there are no limits. At least, not that I've been told anyway. biggrin

Break page 11 and we'll see what happens.

Ah - WBS JUST beat me to it!
I was going to demand whomever was misquoting Python on GG to fess up!

Hullo all - was adumir on the GGF. I've wandered about around here a bit but I always tend to forget to participate in any forums that are not my homepage. Homepage updated!

Thanks Knightshade, WhiteBoySkim, et al for the warm reception.

best to Rich and - to all of us!

It's like GG was a giant ship, floating through space, on auto pilot. The ship has an entire population completely unaware that there is literally no one in control, and once the auto pilot stops working - doom.

Checks????

Where can I get one of these magically signed checks?

Well, this really, really sucks. When I couldn't access Gone Gold for two days, I feared the worst, and even resorted to installing the IRC client and going to #gonegold to see what's going on. I also suddenly remembered this site, so I came, and saw the thread. This really sucks, and if anyone wants to do something, count me in.

Glad to see old faces here though. Funny to see that I registered, and have more posts, than some of the old-timers here... biggrin

If GG has died (I'm witholding judgment on that one until I hear official word), it is a sad day indeed.  In any event, thanks to Ron and the rest of his staff here for offering their support to make the mass transition a pleasant one.  

And yes,  GGNFL will live on regardless of GG's fate.

By the looks of this forum's overall post count, I think you'll be fine here until GG returns (if it does  frown  ).

Would it be possible to harrass Bill Harris into giving us some cryptic details? I thought he knew Rich.

And thanks to ConsoleGold for being gratuious in letting us crash your party.

And who is going to own up to being Dolphan?

SuperHiro won my sig contest at GoneGold but since its... gone... does that mean I have to keep his winning sig as my sig here?  I mean the inverted penis/vagina - have your baby thing was creative but this seems like a good loophole to get out.  Can I bail on the sig?

Please?   :oops:

Boom, page 11?


I feel so weird.  I expect to see this thread locked, just out of tradition.



But, it's good to see the usual weirdness of the GoneGold posters is displayed in this thread.  Hopefully things won't change too much.  

The only thing I really, really want is a GG-type color scheme.  And, if enough people migrate to make it worth it, some PC-Gaming forums.

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.


Don't you think Ebonstone should be banned just for his .sig?  Pretty classless, if you ask me.

Man, I don't know how I feel about this being the first thread I've ever started that's exceeded three pages.  

If GG is gone, I'll be one sad panda.  I'd been there for four and a half years, and was finally closing in on 3000 posts to get my tag.  Hopefully we'll have a final word on this soon, just for closure's sake.  I'm really hoping that Rich is okay, and if pulling the plug on the site is what he needs to do to get better, then I can understand that.  An answer would be nice though.

It's utterances like these that make me believe that if GG does bite the big one, this will make a fair place to call home.

I'll create an interim (hopefully) thread for the pool here, pr0ner.

Hear, hear!

But we should wait... it might very well not be the end, and I'm kind of hoping some GG'ers would team up and resurrect Gone Gold. There's some talk about that before in the forums, but seems no one really went and did it out of apathy - I admit GG took on a kind of a permanent feel. Sad to see we might be wrong. Again, if anyone's up to resurrecting GG (if it needs any resurrecting), count me in.

Wifey is in bed sleeping.  Guess watching the debates put her right out.

I'm upset.  After Bush's pathetic performance tonight, it's definitely four years of that lying puke from Massachusetts. frown.

This is why I went to see Friday Night Lights instead of watching the debate.  Much more fun!

... GG'ers ... team up(!)...resurrect Gone Gold(!)


I agree. ConsoleGold is nice and everything, but its like that nice hotel you stay in while the house you live in gets sprayed for termites. It may be nice and you have a great time, but by the end, you're really looking forward to going home.

But if it turns out mom and dad were lying and we were really in the hotel because our house got destroyed in a tornado...this place will be mighty fine.

But...to steal an inspirational speech from a successful summer blockbuster...
Quote
Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!" We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!


Wait...that didn't make any sense.

No, but as one of the long-timers at GG (can't believe I'd ever be able to post that) who started there and migrated here long ago, I can vouch that these are good people here and the CG of old is not the CG of new. Our information is good, the writing is good, and the people are friendly so there's plenty to see elsewhere on the site as well as chat it up in the forums.

Plus, our forums work. biggrin

For me, the fact that the folks that make up the Console Gold community have made this place so welcoming (and are familiar "faces") makes me want to stick around, regardless of whether GG comes back up or not.  I'd be quite happy when the GG forum returns but I think I've added yet another venue for me to be distracted from work...

Damn you Console Gold! :x
