I've marked my territory in a little corner of the forums, so I'm sticking around. I noticed how many threads per day the Off Topic forum used to have before all of us washed ashore. Needless to say, we're adding a lot of work to the mods' lives. Hope you guys think it's still worth it too.

I have to say that yep I this is quickly becoming home.  Before the first thought I would have when starting up my browswer is "quick check of gg" now it's "quick check of cg".

To be honest too I think I may even like this place better.

I still find myself typing 'go' instead of 'co' to get here (yay autocompletion!), but otherwise it's starting to fill in nicely.  We need more good activity on the Off-Topic boards for when I get bored, though.   :lol:

This forum is more robust, and all our friends and neighboors are here.

I say Im glad this is continuing over here.. I actually find it better in many ways as the forums are more active over here.

Yes, it does seem like some of the community has gone over there, for whatever reason. I'm not a big fan of the community splintering off into these two camps, so I am not sure why Peacedog & Co decided to open that forum up....well no, I think I do know why they did it, but thats another story.  Ron has been very nice so far with letting this feel like home to many people from Gone Gold.

I have made a couple posts over there, but I like the feel of this forum more, so far.

I've been without an online home for about a week since gg went down. But after hanging out at several gaming related message boards, I've determined that this is the one that seems to suit me best. I just like the atmosphere, especially the courtesy shown by everyone here.

I also want to express my thanks to the moderators and administrators who have made me feel so welcome here. smile

This actually feels more like GG than GG itself did over its last few months, I think.  I'm glad that we had this safety net and that so many are finding their way here.

How about we let this feel like something NEW, fun, and excellent in its own right, instead of somewhat sadly hanging on to something that was bigger in our minds than it ever was practically? GG was a shell of a site in many, many ways for a long time (and those that have been there for 3-4 years know what I am talking about). Why does CG have to be like GG? Let it be something different, and maybe in its own way better. I know there is a need to reminisce(sic) about all things, but at some point, it ceases to be a useful exercise and starts to appear desperate.

Yeah, checking both forums is driving me nuts. I know that the GG staff said from day 1 that they were starting a new site right away (and they have gotten it up pretty fast), I just hope that the dust settles soon so that I can find one board to visit and not have to bounce back and forth if I can avoid it.

Same here... this is more like the GG of old that I remember.  Brutesquad, meh... I haven't even registered there, and doubt I ever will.

I agree with this as well... it really started to get on my nerves when some folks felt the need to turn this to GG immediately with the whole R&P discussion.  CG has plenty of upside of it's own, without having to be the red-headed stepchild of GG.

I know this will not make me popular with some former poster/"friends" and certainly none of the people that started the other site, but am I the only one that sees the other site as complete ego? It looks like a bunch of former moderators that couldn't stomach giving up their moderating powers and didnt like the stricter moderation of CG decided to just create a new site with R&P forums. All this seems to have done is fracture the community further, which seems petty when CG was willing to take us in.

I like both forums so far.  But I have to say I have yet to see evidence of so-called "stricter" moderation on this forum.  And I see political threads are alive and well.  As long as both forums have good people then I think I can have the same level of comfort in both as I did in the old GG forum.

Clarification:  I think the appearance of political threads is a good thing.  And I don't feel like the site is being put out by them, nor do I see undue stifling of conversations.  In a way, it's a bit like GG was before the R&P subforum was created.

Uh... sorry but I completely disagree. The plan to start a new forum in case of fire (i.e. GG going down) was in the plans long before it did go down. People flocked here as a place to go.

For me personally, CG was just a temporary solution until a new forum got built. Now that it's up, I feel much more at home over there than I do here. It's nothing against KD and the CG crew, but this is a console site with its own ideas and goals, and it's not really what I want for a permanent solution.

Still, because much of the exGG community will spend their time here and not BS/OO, then I'll still pop on by.

Well, maybe it's too soon to say, but it feels pretty permanent to me. I think most of us feel at home already and some credit for that has got to go to CG. If it wasn't comfortable here, we'd be packing our bags and waiting for a bus. The good bus stops are terribly limited.

I don't really see the big deal.  The issue at the end of the day is that there's no more GG.  All the guys at CG have done a terrific job of taking in the GG refugees, but you just have to face it - this isn't GG.  It's Console Gold and expecting it to change in drastic ways is not realistic.  The guys at BS.net are trying to recreate as much of what was GG as possible in ways that simple aren't possible or are unreasonable to expect here.  R&P as a seperate forum is just something that some people find important.  You can't just tell them "absolutely not" and expect them all to be just happy.  There are other things that some people just prefer - old moderator styles, for instance.  I'm not saying one is better or worse - I'll probably be splitting my time between both sites - but some people are going to want things the old way and I don't think it's an affront when they try and recreate that for themselves.

Aside to Rage - at least the Brutesquad guys return phone calls slywink

Bah! I was out and then had about a dozen phone calls to return. Friend of mine got herself in a big car accident last night at like 4am.

Anyways, I am not disagreeing with anyone. I would be the LAST person to suggest we try to create a new GG. Hell, I am really kind of embarrassed at the non-stop lamenting that is going on about it-we are adults, most of us have found our way to a new place. It was a set of forums-we found a new set of forums. Thats great. Lets have fun and move on.

I just dont appreciate the immediate devisiveness that was created by having the other forum pop up. I mean, after all, its very hard to argue that this site and this forum aren't going to be far better supported and far more resources for a large community. Did the people that started that other board give this place a chance? Was a stricter limitation on talking politics SO important that people just up and left like that? The same people that cry out against the loss of Gone Gold wont even give this place a chance because there is no religion and politics forum? Cut off your nose to spite your face? Seems...petty...yet in a curious twist someone suggested in a prior thread that those that chose to remain without a R&P board were somehow not as "mature" or grown up as those that wanted one-all because this site started as a Console game site. Dear god, help us all from people that incredibly myopic.

Why are you assuming Console Gold is the obvious choice to replace GG?  It's not like we had a chance to decide where we were going to move - the forums just weren't there one day.  Just because many made the choice to migrate to CG doesn't make CG the "Official Replacement Site for GG" (tm).

Personally, I find the proposition that those who don't just follow the herd to CG are "petty" or "egotistical" rather insulting.

The internet is big enough for both boards.

I get the same enjoyable 'feel' from hanging out here that I did from previous forum hang outs, including GG.  That, to me, is a subtle but important distinction.  What I mean is, it's not just a matter of assembling the right ingredients(forums, articles, community members). It's the unpredictable organic result of the combination of all those things, sometimes it 'clicks' and sometimes it doesn't. It's clicking for me now, here.

Since I get what I need from my gaming site needs here now, other sites hold no interest from me. Of course, those sites may fill the needs of others and I wouldn't begrudge them their choice to go that route.

Heh, am I the only one that noticed that most of the people that NEED a seperate R&P forum are the ones that were up in arms about it when GG created one?  :shock:
