I really don't get the animosity between folks at GT and OO.  I read both boards, OO basically for the PC section and here for console section.

I just didn't pay much attention to it.  Some enjoy forum drama, but it's just not my bag.  I don't care to be involved with it, and I certainly don't really care to read about it, either.  I've got enough real-life drama to have time for fabricated forum drama.  But, there are some forum members that just can't get along.  So be it. 

I've been a pretty regular poster both here and at OO and I enjoy both communities.  GT has a much more active console forum which I certainly enjoy, and OO provides further current event posts in the Everything But Gaming forum to augment what I learn about/participate in here.  I see having two forums as a win/win.  Not sure why they have to be mutually exclusive.

So is there a way to redirect the dead URLs to at least a hastily thrown up HTML page to let those folks who don't know about this forum or PopeHat know what's going on?  I know there are a ton of Wanderers guild members who probably think we've been nuked off the planet at the moment.   icon_eek

As pointed out elsewhere, the second Google entry for Octopus Overlords reads:
Quote
Regarding Octopus Overlords. | PopehatThere's a link to this information in the little-used Popehat forum, but the most current information we have is documented in this thread at Gamingtrend, ...
www.newpopehat.dreamhosters.com/2008/04/05/regarding-octopus-overlords/ - 39k - 

Most forum users, one would think, would either get redirected to Google or give it a shot manually.

It's not hard, it just requires a modest effort on the behalf of myself and Rip. I still haven't heard from him. And he's the only one that can do the redirect. Also, since the DNS redirect takes a few days to fully take effect, it's not something you want to do if you expect the original site to come online fairly soon.

I hope everyone understands that I wasn't trying to dredge up the past over at Popehat.  Had I known that was how people would react, I wouldn't have posted.  People were discussing the whys, and I wanted to indicate that throughout the (long-past) issues it was nothing more than a very, very small number of people (you could probably count the combined total without taking off your shoes) on both sites who kept the momentum behind the drama, and none of them staff or 'official representatives'.  They were generally the same people who pushed the drama on every other issue, too.  Many never noticed it, and almost all are 'over it'.

I don't see any animosity whatsoever between the forums.  There are  a few individuals who still hold grudges against OO for past battles, but that is just that - a few individuals who don't feel like growing up.

I'm going to go after Blackhawk.

The first thing he will lose will be his feet below the ankles. Then his hands at the wrists. Next his nose. The next thing he will lose will be his left eye followed by his right. And then his ears, you're supposing? WRONG! His ears he'll keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing his hideousness will be his to cherish. Every babe that weeps at his approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing," will echo in his perfect ears. I will leave him wallowing in freakish misery forever.

I'd build a pond for you squid if you wanted to move over here and merge the two sites. 

Being serious, I wouldn't be abject to the idea.  We'd just have to come to a consensus on a common set of rules, which I think would be the big sticking point that would prevent it from happening.  My methods of moderation are quite different than the OO ruleset.
