Here's a radical idea.  Instead of running off and trying to create a new front page from scratch, why don't you stay here.  I'm talking about creating a true sister site relationship like Gone Gold and Console Gold back in the day.

KD could lock the PC forum and link to OO for PC discussion.  You could lock you Console forum and link to GT.  You could even work out a unified User list/log on if you wanted.  Both sites would keep their other forums and mods.  (Though unified trade and deal areas might be considered as well)

The GT front page could highlight hot topics on both boards with direct links.  I'm sure something like that is in the redesign anyway. icon_razz  OOer's could chip in with PC news, interviews and maybe even reviews. I believe KD has mentioned time when he's had more games than reviewers. 

There are a lot of details that would have to be worked out, but if you're considering building something from scratch, perhaps it's an idea to consider.

I think things have been more interesting here lately.  I'd hate to see that end.

I don't think that would be very fair to KD (seems like he'd inevitably end up with even more to do) plus it ignores the distinctions between the two communities and sites.  Besides, OO is more than just a PC gaming site, with activity in other areas as well.   

Maybe as a last ditch effort to save OO, but that doesn't seem to be the situation at the moment.

it's his.... precious.

I think we should celebrate and embrace GT's separateness and distinctiveness.  KD and his band of merry folks have built a kick-ass site --- and under some lousy circumstances, considering how they got shafted a couple of years ago.  GT is its own thing.  It's not GG or OO.  That's a good thing.

Plus, it's like the twenty people in the sinking lifeboat rowing up to the folks in the secure lifeboat and saying "say, can we lash our boat to yours?"

Personally I don't really like that idea.  I'm one of those who have now given up on OO and settled here.  I like it here.  I'd hate to have to use this board for almost everything but then flit over to OO for PC discussion.

I think of it more akin to moving in with my sister after a tornado wipes out my trailer.
She's got a really nice house, great husband and kids to hang around with, and more friends that drop by than I do.
I'd be happy there for a while after a disaster. And I'd greatly appreciate their hospitality.
But it's not my home.
After my lowly trailer got replaced/rebuilt, I'd want to go home.
Nothing against anyone here, or my sister, and I'd still drop by for friendly visits, but I still want my home back.

...edit: but only if all my old stuff is still there...

That seems awfully unfair to ATB, who's just waiting for the OO people to leave.  Where would ATB go if they stay here?

He can't very well go to the Popehat forum, because I've banned him there.  Sometimes I unban him, just so that I can experience the pleasure of banning him all over again.

Huh. I didn't realize you were so sensitive and that I had so offended your take up for the little guy sensibilities.

I assume you've seen that since the initial shock of the influx of old names, posting styles and the like, that anti-OO rhetoric from yours truly has been toned down (admittedly with help from Kevin Grey) and I've mingled quite nicely with OOers- in fact the bump in traffic has been a boon to the site (again to my admitted surprise). 

You're certainly welcome to hold a grudge (which is fair as I assume I went after some people you hold dear) Oddly though, I have seen that you were at times lambasting me and defending me on popehat...so I'll assume that you're in the lambasting cycle at present.

OO is different from GT, as others have said. That difference is not just between a Console forum and a PC forum. Frankly, OO was more active in its general forum, and it was much more active in the religion and politics forum. Now there are people asking why we couldn't have the same thing here. It's because GT is not the same as OO. We have people from OO that went to QT3, that went to GT, that went to Popehat, and that didn't go anywhere at all. They all have their reasons for doing so. We certainly won't get them all back at OO when it comes back up, but we can at least try to get back to that great mix we had going before this whole fiasco began.

So if you're not going to post on OO or whatever, that's cool. Just don't begrudge those of us who find GT a great place to visit but miss our homes.

I don't begrudge it, I just think it's highly unrealistic to expect that we're going to "get the band back together" overnight. If nothing else it will be an interesting social experiment.

Saturday dude. The only one that went in there today was me. You can't tell the stuff I moved around? I guess we will need to have a contest to see who can spot stuff as it moves.

It looks like the black and brown chairs have been moved. Still no people in the picture...
