Expect a formal announcement on this today.
15722  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Drudge is reporting that Christopher Reeve is dead on: October 11, 2004, 04:55:24 AM
Ahh Drudge...don't let good taste and reporting backed by facts get in the way of a story.

Pictures of Tubgirl....not kosher.

Forgive me....seeing tubgirl has made me slightly retarded.   retard

Caligula!  Welcome.  You have earned yourself a vacation.  Email me in a week and we can talk.
15727  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? (Pt. 2) on: October 11, 2004, 03:07:24 AM
Welcome Bill.  I think we all knew that you would let us know if you knew anything, but thanks for coming in here and making it plain.
15728  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dark Forum Option Beta is up! on: October 11, 2004, 03:05:39 AM
Hit your profile and select subBlack.  It isn't classic GG, but that was intentional.  This is beta and some stuff hasn't be implemented.  Drop your feedback in here and be honest but constructive please.
15729  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Question about posting pictures of models. on: October 11, 2004, 03:04:29 AM
Key thing being 'tasteful'.  We are in uncharted water here...so we'll flag as we go.

Hell, someone could always grab the domain next year and establish the forums again when it expires next year...better some of us than a big site (gamespy, ign, etc) grabbing it for the name recoqnization and saved favorite listings.
I won't let that happen.  I'm sure others would join me in making sure that didn't happen as well.
15731  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / SOE and Lucas Arts might be getting a divorce on: October 11, 2004, 01:39:08 AM
Would be the best thing for em in my opinion.
15732  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FAQ] GoneGold on: October 11, 2004, 01:24:40 AM
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.

Lets queue Tim in 3..2..1...
15734  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
15735  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The official woman of Console Gold [56k] on: October 11, 2004, 12:06:05 AM
That'd be Shannon Elizabeth.  And yes....she is quite hot.  PIE!

15736  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The official woman of Console Gold [56k] on: October 10, 2004, 11:49:08 PM
Hot damn....BAM!

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

15737  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Creating a GG alternative forum on: October 10, 2004, 11:39:15 PM
The R&P is under consideration.  Everything else is a go.

You got a perty mouth...
15739  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? (Pt. 2) on: October 10, 2004, 09:53:38 PM
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...
15740  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.
15742  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / is Knightshade Dragon.............. on: October 10, 2004, 05:38:04 PM
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!

15743  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FAQ] GoneGold on: October 10, 2004, 03:54:49 PM
*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.
15744  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FAQ] GoneGold on: October 10, 2004, 03:42:43 PM
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,

Hrothgar, I just wanted to see if I could get more information.  I knew you had called....I am just as surprised as the rest of you.   I just want to know whats going on...the hardest part is waiting and hoping.

15757  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / CG Music Thread - What are you listening to? on: October 10, 2004, 04:01:10 AM
I'm listening to Linkin Park Meteora.

I dig most of it, but like their last CD....only in short bursts.
15758  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.
