You'd be shocked at how often I play PC games.  If GG falls I'll be shifting CG's focus to include PC gaming.  That will probably include the front page as soon as infrastructure and manpower can accomodate.   Lets see what is what first...

I was always just wanting the option of a light colored forum setup at Gone Gold.  Its my goal to offer both a light and dark and a few in between.

If GG becomes part of IGN, I can't say that it'd be GG anymore.  I can't express how much I loathe IGN....

Nothing wrong with PIFF.  If you guys wanna start, I'm cool with that.

On the political thing....I don't mind political threads.  That said, some of the stuff that people call 'political' would pass as hate speech.  We are in hurry up and wait mode right now, lets tackle whats on the table and worry about political threads and forums later.

The Gone Gold "Classic" look is something that I'm sure will be up in short order if GG doesn't come back.  That said, if enough folks really want it, we'll look into it anyway.

JASC is a good piece of software, I can absolutely agree with that.  The problem with Photoshop is that it is an adobe product.  You open up the program and 900 libraries load before you make a single click.  :/

That information isn't lost Raven.  If it comes to it, I'll bring it here.
15709  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 09, 2004, 01:11:35 AM
No need to leave Ebonstone.  I just won't take anyone badmouthing Rich.  We might differ on our management styles or anything else for that matter, but I'll step up to the mic and say that I appreciate him and what he has done for the industry as a whole.  At the end of the day though, its my name at the bottom of the check, if you catch my drift.
15710  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 09, 2004, 01:02:03 AM
That is correct Raven.  We are on a totally different server and under completely different management.
15711  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox Games - or why I wish they'd push Xbox2 to a later date on: October 09, 2004, 01:00:44 AM
Well, when I look at what Fable came out as and what it could be with tougher hardware I'm excited about Xbox 2.  I'm just hoping it doesn't weaken the position of the console long term.  We'll know soon enough....with titles like Morrowind as a launch title, I think it'll do just fine. slywink
15712  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 09, 2004, 12:54:51 AM
Bring it....newbie.  :twisted:

Does this mean I have to start all over with getting enough trader feedback to top Whiteboyskim in the W's? Crap!

Prepare thyself WBS! Bring it!
Hahhaa...it does bring up a good point.  I'll extend the feedback ratings here should that need come to pass.
15714  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 09, 2004, 12:20:07 AM
Hehehhe....nah, if it was kosher on GG, it is pretty much kosher on CG.   Unless of course you are a horses ass like Kahless. smile
15715  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 09, 2004, 12:15:33 AM
I would have thought so too.  While I do appreciate the extra readers and such, in a perfect world Rich would come back and revive Gone Gold for good.
15716  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / GIMP alternatives? on: October 09, 2004, 12:14:08 AM
Are we talking editing or just changing an image from one format to another?  I have been using Irfanview for a long time and I think its fantastic, but I also have a student edition of Photoshop for serious dirty work.
15717  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? on: October 09, 2004, 12:05:24 AM
Don't get the wrong impression.  I don't rule with an Iron Fist or anything akin to that.  I just don't have tolerance for certain things, badmouthing Rich being at the top of that list.

Could be.

I've always fancied a Weekend At Bernie's-like situation where Rich has been dead for a long time now and individuals are just using him and his 'good name' to further their own selfish ends.

That's just me, though.
