Nobody is holding anyone here.  If you want to go to QuarterToThree, feel free.  I wouldn't expect them to change anything to fit what you want though.

15644  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW...Is it a explorers paradise? on: October 11, 2004, 12:22:00 AM
Man....I've always been blown away every time I hit a new area. The first time I went to the dwarf areas and saw the giant carvings in the valleys I was floored.  The first flight over the the Burning Steppes make me look forward to being high enough level to hunt there.  WoW is a GREAT game for exploring. smile

I'll toss this in the ring though...a little doubleshot.  I'm with Jay and Silent Bob on this one...

Well, I have to weight the amount of time the moderators will have to spend on that forum.  It soaks up 10x more time to moderate than any other one as religion and politics tend to bring out the absolute worst in people at times...
15650  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Have to say this feels like GG forums to me... on: October 10, 2004, 09:52:16 PM
You have no idea how much that means to me.  Even if this is only temporary, that means a lot.  Thank you.

Though "Console Gold" would no longer be appropiate, would it?
Well, Dictionary.com defines a console as "The operator's station of a mainframe" so I don't know that its too out of the ordinary.  I don't think we'll be re-inventing the wheel on that subject.

Besides, the developers and publishers I deal with have long since known that we cover PC stuff here in the forums.  This would just be an expansion on that.

Yes sir, I am that same Ultima Dragon.  UDIC #13.  For a bit more history, I was the first Seer and Counselor of Ultima Online and was one of the original alpha testers of UO.  Man....that brings back some memories for me too!

*nods*  I've been looking to automate that process into our database system for a long long time as well Blackhawk.  If this goes long term, your job could become a lot easier.

Thanks for doing that Jeff, it is appreciated!

Not to worry folks, the landscape will change and there will be a place for PC discussions and a place for console discussions.  There are plans to ADD PC, not to let PC take over.  I'll let a few cats out of the bag, all of which are based on GG not coming back of course:

1.) Expand the forums into pretty much what GG had and seperate consoles and PC.  We need to evaluate some forums like R&P (it seems religion was the big offender for most people...maybe we trial run without religion?)
2.) Expand our backend database to encompass PC. (Have you guys looked at OUR Gold Guide?)  Take a sample: http://www.consolegold.com/GameInfo/game/1352.html
3.) (still in the thought bubble stage, need to discuss with Eldon) Work on filtering system to filter news for PC or the various consoles
4.) Hire staff to cover PC gaming news in a way it hasn't been covered on the front page of GG for a long long time.
5.) Restart PC reviews
6.) Restart PC previews

If we do that, we'll have a lot of work ahead of us, but I think it'll pay off in the long run.

bplotkin,

I've removed the personal information posted here.  While it is considered distasteful to post somebody's information openly on the internet, no matter how easy it is to obtain, somebody did request it.  In the future, please make use of our private message system to send personal information.

Thank you,

15668  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Creating a GG alternative forum on: October 10, 2004, 03:54:33 AM
That is correct.  I've already been in touch with folks to get the old look kicking as soon as possible if things go south with GG.

Translation of names and tracking won't be an issue.  It also won't be handled via forum updates forever either, we'll look at automating it into something a little more sleek and automated.  If we end up going this route, give us some time, we'll develop something very nice, trust me.

Also, I'm thrilled at the WARM reception the mods here at Console have been extending to us, so I definitely plan on hanging here (gotta talk 'em into giving me/ rolling over my _just_ hit +100 GG trader feedback though, LOL!)
We have already decided that we'd extend that for all GGers.  It wasn't lost with the old server. smile

Well, lets not get too disheartened until we hear from somebody in the Rich/Stephen level of things.
15674  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Gone Gold Update on: October 10, 2004, 01:29:19 AM
I just spoke with EV1 (who owns Rackshack, the company that hosts GG).   They were less than forthcoming with information as I don't have Rich's password (and rightly so) but I did get this out of them.

"I can tell you that this is not a technical issue.  Its something other than that."

You can take that for whatever it is worth.  He did say that if somebody has the password they could call in and get all the information (billing? plug pulled? whatever?) but since I don't have that information I'm shut out.  Mods?  Bill?  Stephen?  Somebody?

I'm glad that everyone is settling in ok here.  All that I ask is that we be patient and figure out what is going on before we make changes.  If things go south with GG, I'll re-open Road to Gold, open a PC forum, open a hardware forum, etc.  You'll find yourself in familiar territory fairly quickly.  If not, we'll re-assess after we find out more completely what the status of the site is.  I'm just loathe to open a bunch of forums if there is to be a mass exodus back to GG when/if she opens back up for business, ya know?
