2841  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / R&P Decision on: October 12, 2004, 08:07:00 PM
Quote from: "Abiding Dude"
But I have to agree with some of the folks here that if certain political (and most likely alot of news items) subjects are off-limits then the spirit of Gone Gold will surely not take root here.   Which is unfortunate for me and unfortunate for this board in the long run I suspect.


I'm sorry, not trying to be rude or a little shit, here, but since when was GG primarily a forum for R&P?  I was there for nearly 4 years and thought it was a gaming site.  I know that's certainly NOT what Rich intended it to be.

Do you really think that religious and political discussion is what the spirit of Gone Gold was?  Seriously?
2842  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / R&P Decision on: October 12, 2004, 07:53:47 PM
Here's what I think the problem is-

Gone Gold was pretty much just a message board for so long that people forgot/ never knew that it was once an awesome site about GAMING.  If anything, we here at CG want to carry on the spirit of that era of the site.  Those of you who went to the site JUST so you could post in R&P are missing the point of what we are trying to do here at Console Gold.

Gone Gold's staff consisted primarily of forum moderators, and that's all they had to do.  We, on the other hand, write reviews, previews, post news, create custom graphics, go out to the game publishers for special events, generally keep our finger on the pulse of console gaming (and soon PC gaming)- that's what this site is really about.  The forums have always been and always will be secondary.

That's not to say that our COMMUNITY will be secondary.  On the contrary, Eldon, our staff programmer, has some shit cookin' that will give the community more tools at their disposal for the sharing of gaming love than either site ever had.  There are some truly awesome things in the works, and we've only just started.

Well, I may just replace it with something better.  It's just been a pain to finish the thing and I'd rather just start from scratch.

So censoring peoples abilities to discuss politics, in one forum, away from the on topic or off topic discussions, hurts the forum?


I just want to clear something up - nobody is censoring anybody here.  We have valid reasons for being wary of an R&P forum, the chief one being the moderation nightmare of such an entity, and it has nothing to do with censoring our forum members.  We have more respect for you than that.

He's turning 6 on thursday.

he likes all kinds of games.  Let's just say there are certain kinds of games that mom doesn't like, and he's not quite reading yet.  help any?

Just found out that he will be getting a shiny red GBA SP for his birthday this weekend.  I'm looking for recommendations on games for him.  Of course, I may, uh, borrow it now and then... ninja

I just logged in fine.  looks like they changed the front page finally.
2848  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Forum theme changes on: October 12, 2004, 05:02:17 AM
Hey everybody.  I just tweaked the (formerly named) subSilver theme to more closely match the site, and changed the names of all of the themes.

They are now:
WhiteGold (subSilver)
BlackGold (subBlack)
Raw Ore (cobalt 2.0)

I'll keep the cobalt  for a bit since some of you are using it, but I may swap it out for a much spiffier theme design that I have planned for the default.
2849  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / EVERYONE READ PLEASE on: October 12, 2004, 03:34:22 AM
yup.  I'll be tweaking the theme a bit more in the coming days, so it's not just the default looking theme on every phbb board out there.

Heck, I didn't even have a console when Ron invited me to join the team.

One little comment:  I run my rig at 1152x864, and the first topic starts more than halfway down the page!  Add in the sticky threads, and maybe 35-40% of the page is actually useful content.  That's pretty ridiculous.  Maybe a scaling of the big 'CG' logo is in order.   Way too much wasted or underused space, IMO.

Carry on.  smile


I'm addressing that.  I will have the subSilver theme looking like the yin to subSiilver's yang soon.

2853  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / No link to the home page with B&G forum format? on: October 12, 2004, 01:53:21 AM
fixed in subBlack.  I think I may just kill Cobalt.
2854  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Supporting CG on: October 11, 2004, 08:36:33 PM
oh, and if you go there, check out the front page- I redesigned it about the same time as we started running the ad.

seemed only appropriate to pimp myself, you know.... unibrow
2855  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Whats your favorite board style? on: October 11, 2004, 08:24:07 PM
Just so everybody is clear, Cobalt was an experiment towards coming up with a default theme for the site.  It launguished for a long time because it was just damn difficult to adapt to my wants/ needs. (drove me frickin nuts)

All you GG guys coming aboard set a fire under my ass to put something up a bit more palatable than subsilver.  tho, now I think about it, I may make a few adjustments to that one today to get it more in ,line with the overall site.

other themes are actually on the drawing table as well.  While I don't mind subBlack, it still doesn't completely do it for me.  In researching options, however, I think I may have stumbled onto a base template that might meet my needs.

What's even cooler is that choosing a theme that suits you may not be limited to just the forums sometime in the future....
2856  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FAQ] GoneGold on: October 11, 2004, 04:07:30 AM
you are referring to the 'here' on the page after you submit a post, right?  I have links turning a diff color in posts, but that setting for some reason eludes me
2857  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FAQ] GoneGold on: October 11, 2004, 04:02:21 AM
ah, you must've caught the brief moment where I tried the yellow text on the bars (shudder)

I have toned down the bars a bit and changed the header text color. drool
2858  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FAQ] GoneGold on: October 11, 2004, 03:46:30 AM
are you guys referring to the silver header bars or the subSilver theme?

hey all, I'm finishing up my K2 review right now and I thought it would be really cool to include some screenshots from all of you playing in the body of my review. I'm sure that there are some epic battles going on as I speak, and I certainly don't want the same old stuff that's online everyewhere else. help a brother out?

well, religious and political discussion flourished for years on the EBG board long before the seperate forum was made.  I don't see why that can't happen here
2865  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Establishing New Gone Gold forums on: October 10, 2004, 02:14:35 AM
Heck, I'm finishing up a PC game review of Kohan2 for the forums right now!  I think most of us here in the CG staff still love playing PC games as much as our console games.

hmnnn.... I was actually thinking about coming up with custom emoticons at some point....

Maybe I should get the forum theme done first Tongue

Seriously, I'd be wrapping it up right now if I didn't have to freaking work.  It will be up sometime this weekend- I PROMISE!

Another refugee from Gone Gold here.  As slow as the site has been running the past week I was wondering this was going to happen.

I would like to throw in a vote as well to the good guys here at ConsoleGold to put up some PC fourm spots for us.

I do play PS2 but am a PC gamer at heart.  This site does seem great though and will start coming here for my gold fix.

Regards,
Pig


Actually, there's no shortage of PC love here for sure.  In fact, my poor x-box has been feeling neglected as of late with games like Doom3, WoW, and Kohan 2 finding their way onto my hard drive.  In fact, I should have an informal review of Kohan 2 up in the forums sometime this weekend, and I wouldn't be too surprised to see more PC goodness on the horizon.  Heck, I myself wouldn't mind seeing a PC section on the main site, if  only just for the occasional review and such.

2874  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How to make IE useful? on: October 01, 2004, 09:30:16 PM
Bwahahahahahahahaha!

sorry, but putting 'IE' and 'useful' in the same sentence was just too funny....

There may be some kind of IE based browser out there, think I've heard of one, that has tabs, but there is no such thing as an extension or modification of IE beyond toolbars such as the google or alexa ones.
2875  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - TV Show on: September 30, 2004, 07:37:44 PM
well, the wife and I were discussing it, and these are the things that really stood out from the first two hours:

the polar bear/ comic book connection

the older black lady saying she thought the noise the creature made was familiar and that she was from the bronx.  Others commented that it didn't sound like a creature.  Also, she refers to her husband in the bathroom during the flashback sequence and later mentions him again- we have not seen him.

there's more, I'll post later
2876  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - TV Show on: September 30, 2004, 05:43:45 PM
just checked my recording of last night's episode and there is indeed a polar bear in the comic book.

interesting.....

So I went to schedule the dvr to record tonight's episode, when I discover to my horror that all of the stations are running a presidential debate tonight.

including ABC.

I went ahead and st it up to record the whole season, but I'll be SUPER pissed if the wife and I can't watch part 2 tonight! :evil:  :evil:  :evil:
