    Okay so the name GBAtemp it's way to old. I mean the GBA doesn't even have a section anymore. Names that could be possible and current are basically 3DStemp. Also for people trying to find the Temp the GBATEMP.net could lead you to a redirect page or something. Also it doesn't have to 3DStemp just something with video games and Temp at the end, what do you guys think?

    EDIT : GBA is old anyways in a few years nobody will know what it stands for [​IMG]

    It was born as GBAtemp and will stay as GBAtemp.
    No reason for it to change.

    The united state's states aren't all that united in many ways (excluding our answering to feds), should we change that? No! And no, since I know you're going to ask next, G8473m9 is not an option.

    I say keep it as GBAtemp. What difference does it make in the grand scheme of things? I always refer to it as the 'temp anyway.

    Nah, leave it as is. I've never heard of anyone having any issue with the site's name, aside from yourself right now. And given recent events I'm disinclined to take any of this seriously.

    EDIT : @ Blaze you don't take me serious because some people made me seem like an unreliable source [​IMG]

    GBA could stand for Games, Boys, Advanced........it's still games related.
    Even if the Nintendo GBA is no longer the focus of it, the name itself is reminiscent of handheld gaming, on the go or at home, so it fulfills the spec of the forums.
    I don't see any reason to change, it still sound like fun !

    The original Nintendo handheld is the Gameboy, maybe we should change it to GBtemp [​IMG]

    Just keep the name, so what if the name is old? The site is getting older too, just keep the name to reflect that.
