I am posting this for Mike Dunn.
---------------------------------------

Hey everybody, Ron can't access the site and I don't know how long I  can access it but we wanted to give a heads-up to you, our faithful readers.

The owner of the domain has apparently deemed it necessary to change our nameservers away from our host.  Soon, many of you will get an error page in the place of our site.  We, the management team here at CG are trying to get to the bottom of this and we will keep you posted as we can.  

Let's just say that this happening a little over a year after the demise of Gone Gold is not a coincidence.  I will leave it at that.

Ron, Eldon and I have been working on a contingency plan for several months now, and while it is unfortunate that this is happening this way (again), we just have to do what we have to do.  

Our new home is going to be  http://www.gamingtrend.com.  Everything you have found here at consolegold.com will be found there, it may just take a little while for things to get all situated.

Anyway, we will still be doing what we do and hope to see you all there in the coming days.  We all apologize profusely for the inconvenience.  I will be reposting this at Octopus Overlords and Bovine Conspiracy.

Thanks,

Mike Dunn

Do you all know more about this than I do? Or are you just taking it better?

Anything we can do to help?  By "pass the word," do you mean email anyone we have addresses for, if CG just "goes away"????  Anything else???   :shock:

It seems like a lot of people already can't access CG, but I was logged in earlier and I seem to be able to still move around the site.  Anyone who wants to keep on it a little longer, should probably stay logged in.

Unless this doesn't go through, which of course means you didn't see it, so never mind!

sheesh!

Fantastic work, everyone. Not only are the forums restored, but all the accounts and silly avatars as well.

Well, some of the avatars, anyway.  Now to figure out where I put Mr. Dark Helmet...

We did post an announcement on the front page at OO about the name change.  I'm not sure how many people read the front page, but at least it's there.  

And if they skip the front page, there's always the small chance that they'll notice the 13 page thread about it. slywink

Great great great great great great great job doing this everyone involved. Everyone. What a phenomenally incredible way you guys handled this and made the transition. It must have taken an insane level of organization and forethought to make this transition so smoothly. I really do not believe a so called professional site with millions in backing could have done this so smoothly and so well and so quickly.

I heart you guys, its good to be home (I like the new name much much better) and I look forward to many more years with you all.

This is terrible, I used to run many sites and know the feeling when things like this happen.

Thanks to Myto for the heads up, hope to see GamingTrend be as sucsessful as CG was.

Hope everything goes well in the end.

Meal knows no more than I do right now.  According to ILB, he can verify that it's a server issue, not a security issue, but that's all I know.

It does seem awfully suspicious, though. frown

Hey, no problem.  Course, the fact that our front page is down right now, along with the rest of the site, makes it not very helpful. smile  Maybe I could just send smoke signals?  Rain dance?  Something?
