That's good to hear, but man, three weeks with the end still not in sight?  I hope the forum population will be able to bounce back.

I've been wondering the same today. It seems most OOers have flocked to Popehat. I just registered there today after missing a lot of folks I'm not seeing posting here. Ken and Patrick (Mr Fed and Tareeq) are being very grascious hosts over there.

Popehat seems like a nice place but I just can't get used to how everyone uses their first names. smile  I'm surprised there haven't been more people emigrating to Gamers with Jobs; their community is very similar to the OO vibe.

There's been times where I've actually found myself debating whether I'll go back or not on a regular basis.  too many forums.

Just so long as the PC Games and Unreleased Games sections don't die or get too heavily damaged.  If that backbone has decided to migrate then OO is in trouble and that would suck desperately, like eight tiny octopus legs trying to cling on to an algae stained rock in a fast stream.

I was thinking about retiring from a forum life but I really, really, really like PC Gaming news and discussion.

I'm wondering how it will play out when OO does come back online. I would like to think that OO was such a strong community that it would survive a three-week outage, but I could be wrong.

Yeah, I'm worried as well.  And I don't understand why so many have chosen Popehat.  While it has a gaming page, it's pretty inactive from what I can see, with many of the recent posts being made by people I recognize from OO.  I just don't see the community as thriving on a site that is so generally oriented towards politics (front page, active part of the board, etc.)  And yet, that's where a lot of the most active OO posters are at right now.  They also seem to have stopped talking about OO.

Not a good sign.

Agree,

Though if you combine the MMORPG forum, or as I like to call it The Blackjack forum  icon_biggrin and the pc gaming forum here it makes for some good pc reading.  I had been more actively posting here in those forums for about a month before OO died and have been pleasantly surprised.

I share your worries. There's a 'get well OO' thread over there and it still active. But I wonder how many will return (from any of the other communities) once OO is back up. The thing is that these communities almost always boil down to tightly-knit cliques of people that want to stay together. I can see many of them staying put at Popehat--I'm not saying that's a bad thing--but OO will definetely not be the same with many of these personalities missing from the boards. I'm afraid we might have just experience yet another traumatic online community split. We will lose touch and lose friends in the process.

I think as we get more folks on the site who realise that Gaming Trend is for all gaming, not just consoles the PC and MMO boards will pick up.  Hell just having YK here has tripled the posts in the MMO section.  I am glad there is more talk in the PC and MMO sections as I enjoy both of them in addition to console gaming.

I don't know.  Since OO went offline I've

-been able to run a 2 minute mile
-been elected governor
-had 57 supermodels and one tv actress
-invented a reliable water based combustible engine
-written 18 novels that have all been nominated for Pulitzers
-established a charity for those who weren't fortunate enough to be born with my level of hair quality
-figured out what the hell the ending to No Country for Old Men meant

I'm not sure I can go back once it goes online again.

I agree. This site is a fine site that deserves more traffic and a growing community. KnightShade Dragon and his crew have done a fine job. I definetely need to be posting here more often, regardless of how this whole situation plays out.

Gosh, while I haven't posted here in ages, principally because I don't care to have discussions with one A-hole who used to be prominent here, I've been lurking around the fringes for years and in this thread quite extensively for the past three weeks(!).  I don't think that the loss of OO, ultimately and if it happens, will hurt the community that was built around Gone Gold much at all.  The proprietors of this site have been super-courteous to those of you who adhered to OO, and of course those of us who hang around at Popehat esteem this site highly ourselves.

While I suspect OO will be back next week, the important thing is the community built around it, and that community seems to have stayed alive here.  If the worst happens, Gamingtrend is a fine home for it.  Ron has built a great site, and a great forum, around the ruins of what Rich left him (or didn't leave him).  We who hang at Popehat have the highest regard for this place.  We encourage anyone there to register or reactivate old memberships here, and likewise encourage anyone here to visit our forum if so inclined.  We're all pals.

This is a good place.  Don't worry.  Be happy!

Still if much of the OO cadre goes elsewhere, it will be a different OO: fewer NSFW pix, fewer "Ask me about my vasectomy" threads, waaay fewer obscure GG references.

But I think just like what happened after that meteor put an end to the dinosaurs, maybe, maybe some of those gawddurn lurkers will step up to fill the OO evolutionary niche - esp. as the bigger posters have moved on.

So register, damn it, stop lurking! Don't make me create a bunch of accounts like SexxxyGirl or Viagra56 and post random comments.

even if 75 percent of the people don't return it will still be 98 percent male...trust me, there'll be no reduction in NSFW threads at all.

I like the blackjack post in the MMO forum. It gives great insight to what is happening in the MMO genre. maybe one day I will play with him in an MMO, hopefully AoC!

I plan on going back to OO (if and when it ever comes back), but I'll probably violate my "no more than one forum at a time" rule and visit here from time to time. Popehat is a little too sparsely populated for my tastes; like Johnny 5, I am constantly in search of MORE INPUT.

The console/MMO sections of this forum complement the PC forums of OO very nicely. I now see how hopping back and forth could be the best of both worlds.

Don't worry, if we lose the majority of the community I will break out of my 1 post a week mode and try to wiggle my way into the little clique. I have a few people on the OO boards that I like to think of friends that I talk to outside of OO but who knows. That maybe hope to wiggle my way a little deeper into the clique  icon_smile

My interest in gaming has dwindled steadily since I got out of the industry and my computer went obsolete. It's all about the community for me, and I'll stay wherever it comes to roost. I like Popehat because that's where the grownups went. That said, OO was my home for a very long time and I hope it will come back with a big splash.

Ever since the dawn of DVD I have been waiting with mounting impatience for Poltergeist to be released in the UK.  Even though Poltergeist 2 and 3 have been available for years.  My recent annual search on Amazon finally revealed the first film (25th anniversary edition) and it was swiftly ordered and should arrive today.

Being accepted into the OO clique follows the same rules as the "5 Stages of Grief."

Denial: The OO clique will simply ignore your posts. "Did you see what that guy posted about MMOs?" YK: "What guy? I didn't see any post."

Anger: The OO clique will attack your posts. YK: "I've been playing MMOs all my life, you don't know WTF you're talking about noob."

Bargaining: The OO clique will attempt to deal. YK: "I guess he's an OK guy as long as he doesn't open his mouth about MMOs."

Depression: The OO clique will collapse into sadness at having to read your posts. YK: "I don't even know why I bother. It's like trying to talk to a brick wall."

Acceptance: The OO clique embraces you as one of their own. YK: "Obviously we haven't been able to scare you off. Welcome to the fold, brother!"

The things you do for friends.

I have to go home and shave.   tear  The bride informed the groom that my beard is unacceptable.  $200 for a tux and money in a card for the privilege of shaving.  I have had my sideburns for most of my renewed single life.  It's like I'm the one who's getting married all over again.  There so better be an open bar.   crybaby  If Don gets to keep his beard and "friendly mutton chops" have to go, everybody dies.

There's a word I like to use when I get demands like that:  'No'.  It's one thing to politely ask if you'd be interested in shaving, it's another thing to let you know it's 'unacceptable'.  You're there for the groom, not the bride, or did she pick out his groomsmen as well?  If the groom is any kind of friend or man he'd have said it to her for you already.

Not the groom.  The best man.  My assumption is that he will be shaven by the time I see him as well.  I can't imagine the request went out to just me.  It's all good, actually.  My beard is not exactly formal friendly unless you're from the 1800's.  The privilege of shaving it still sucks, though.

I don't know the decision making process.  I do know that causing arguments on wedding days is not a good thing.  I'm just going to feel naked all day and night.

That totally sucks ass.  They asked you to stand up in the wedding not some guy without sideburns.  If your job can accept you representing them with sideburns intact the bride should be able to accept folks with facial hair in her wedding.  That groom is fucked.  Not in a good way.  She won't get him drunk first and is not likely to even offer, let alone actually give, a reach around.  I see absolutely no issue with your facial hair being in a wedding.  Jackass request.  All that said, I would likely still shave if I were you because neither of us like to actually cause waves.

I don't know the decision making process.  I do know that causing arguments on wedding days is not a good thing.  I'm just going to feel naked all day and night.

And the sign says "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I put my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said you look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do
So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that, huh, me working for you"


My suggestion is to take over the DJ's equipment during the Bride and Groom dance and play this song.  Then strip nude and streak through the reception area and leave the building.

That'll show 'em.

.. alot more than just sideburns.

Bridezilla alert. Do you respect your friend? If you do, you'll tell him how you feel. Not telling him will end badly (eventually). You are dressing up, you're ok with grooming them so that your sideburns are clean and presentable.

Is she asking her bridesmaids to get their hair cut, or just done up?
Did they ask you while you had sideburns? Was the stipulation of being the best man that you'd be willing to cut them off?

There's an old saying that goes:

When a man loves a woman, it's for who she is.
When a woman loves a man, it's for who he could be.

A man never changes, the woman always does.

As long as your boy's are shaved I can't see a problem with this.

That's good to hear, but man, three weeks with the end still not in sight?  I hope the forum population will be able to bounce back.

I'm checking for similar transactions leaving Ron's/enter Rip's accounts.   ninja
