OK, call me naive or ignorant, but why isn't Gone Gold working for me anymore?  I was only gone for a month or so, sheesh!  Any help would be appreciated.  It looks suspiciously a lot like Console Gold has assimilated the GG boards...?

As of now, gonegold no longer exists.

Well while you were gone Rich announced "A board without Lokiju is just not anything I want to be associated with" and shut it all down.

Actually, there is a big thread around here somewhere about it but the short version is the actual reason is still a little unclear but at the root was transitioning GG over to someone else in terms of providing front page content but it didn't work out.  Pretty much GoneGold was just gone one day and CG is one of the places people gathered to say "what the hell?".

:shock:  :cry:  :evil:

Um, yeah, I can't believe it.  I had a special plaque and everything.  Sigh.  Thanks for the news, albeit very, very depressing...

Lol, I missed you guys.  I never realized how much Gone Gold meant to me.  I love trading and the interaction with fellow mature (generally, lol) gamers.

Finding out that there is still some life in the "gold" community has made my weekend.    biggrin

I just want to know if Drazzil made the move!?

Yep. You and I have traded a few times, I think.

Drazzil has shown up here, but said he wouldn't be around much for some reason or other.

I believe we have traded 2-3 times if memory serves.  Maybe more, it all becomes a blur after a while, heh.
