It's my great pleasure to announce that GBAtemp has surpassed 500,000 members! I want to give a personal thank you to every member that has joined our community, whether you're an active member, a lurker or just a dormant account from years gone by - thank you for being a part of GBAtemp.
This is a fantastic milestone in the history of our website and is yet another reason to celebrate our success as we approach the 20th anniversary of GBAtemp.
Congratulations to @switchboi69 who is likely the 500,000th true member (more details below), although if we're going by ID then that would be @Leo1006
Our database actually accounts for 588,212 members total at the time of this message which means our hard-working moderator team have nuked over 88,000 spambots, trolls and other time wasters!
To put it into perspective, what exactly does 500,000 people look like? Well, that number of people could fill Wembley Stadium 5 times over and is 80% the entire population of Macau. As a collective, the entire GBAtemp community would weigh over 35,000 metric tonnes, though given the nature of our hobby perhaps we could bump that number up a bit.
Now we begin counting down the days until our 20th anniversary of the forums which will take place on the 24th October. We have big plans to celebrate our 20th so be sure to join us!
Thanks once again to each and every one of you!
