    Hey, look what I stumbled upon a week ago as I was just browsing through the files on my computer!
    I've been deliberately holding on to these pictures until today, to show you what special event took place three years ago [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Remember this? I'm sure those of you who were registered at the moment does - the hype was pretty huge after all, I mean just look at how many users that were currently browsing as I took this screenshot: 592! [​IMG]
    Here's another picture showing just how crazy-long the list of registered members currently logged on was (couldn't even fit it in one print screen):

    [​IMG]

    I remember taking these because just as everyone else, I was pretty hyped up about the upcoming change and thought that it would be fun to look back on these some day. And I was right, wasn't I? [​IMG]

    There are a few other interesting things going on in the first picture as well that occured the same month:

    - We can see a poll on how many people were planning on chipping their Wii (and the results of this).
    - The user panther_512 was sharing his experience with the Wiip.
    - A new Setup Disc was released for the Wiikey.
    - Opium had initiated a competition called "How much do you love GBAtemp?".

    That was the time when 30% didn't have a wii [​IMG]

    I can't tell anything about it, cause I only registered a year ago [​IMG]

    The only thing I can say is that there are WAY more guest on here now

    [​IMG] The nostalgia. I was a long time lurker.

    That was stupid of me. I should have signed up. Well, the only reason I came was for help with my.....Acekard. I found some informative topics.

    I remember that. I also still use that skin as that was the same one that was up when I came here. Now is this topic just a circle jerk for members who have been here a while? [​IMG]
