    Tempest Stormwind

    Why do u lock ur news topics on the main page ? afraid of comments ?
    you do know that your news posts are lame don't you ?
    u deserve getting flamed for the amount of stupidity in them OOOHHH new demos == BS

    do you really think people who pirate GBA games care about PC GAME demos ?

    put out some real news like umm

    The_Sims2_AlcoholClone-CLONEGAME.
    Burnout_3_USA_XBOXDVD-USA
    Silent_Hill_4-USA-XBOX-RETAIL-DAGGER

    u'll prolly ban me for posting my opinions bc it seems to happen to just about everyone.

    Discussing my opinion should not get me banned! vote on it. I bet you no one cares tell us whats new in GBA or shut up.

    1) I do the news, not Tempest. He just posts it on the main page. So, if you must flame someone, flame the right guy.

    2) He locks the main page one because then there would be 2 topics on the news and not 1.

    3) There is GBA news in there if you actually read them.

    4) If you don't like it, don't read it. Problem solved.

    5) This is a legal site, so I'm not going to post news on what torrents have been released.

    Have a nice day,
    jumpman17

    Oh yeah there's real great GBA stuff like "Pink SP released in Europe"
    *drowns in sarcasm*
    Plus, if Jumpman makes the news, why doesn't he post it himself? It cant be that hard.

    oh boo hoo Tempest is lame for posting for you.

    It's still lame.

    Telling people about any new game releases would be better and your comments on legality are stupid.
    We all know this site is used to get info on illegal rom downloads. Did I say you have to provide links to Torrent sites? umm no I didn't.

    You have no clue do you ?

    4) If you don't like it, don't read it. Problem solved.
    UMM NO it's on the main page. Guess what I'm forced to read it.

    2) He locks the main page one because then there would be 2 topics on the news and not 1.
    NO he locks it because he doesn't like to get flamed for lame uninteresting news

    oh and a big huggles to you both then

    kiczek you're missing the point completly.
    I was about to say why but jumpman already did.

    Just to say that reading your post doesnt make you look mature at all. I'd guess you're a little kid who thinks he's allmighty because he can fire up kazaa and download stuff.

    Perhaps not but thats the vibe you're giving off...

    And the locked thread is totally normal. Thats the one on the portal, the discussion's supposed to happen in jumpman's thread.

    I usually doesnt even care for that kind of threads, almost doesnt even read em. I'm not the kind of guy that will say no rom link or something either, its not my job.

    But man, the vibe your giving is just so immature, non informed and just palin silly that i had to say something.

    Kiczek, I don't take kindly to flames, especially ones that anyone with intelligence will realize are ungrounded.

    I'll deal with this in your original order.

    Jumpman put this one fully. He finds and writes up the news. I write a brief blurb and post the headlines to the forums. It's a voluntary thing that he's been doing for ages, and only now does it get front-page status simply because we didn't think of putting it on the front page earlier.

    I lock the topic with precedence. Any time that a member posts something newsworthy, our custom is to have a staffer post a news blurb on it with a link to the valid topic. Look at any of the old VBA emulator release news notices to see what I mean. We do this as well if there's a double-topic going on the forum.

    The news covers "Gaming" news, mostly things that would take a good chunk of money and time to hunt down. Jumpman provides this to us because he wants to -- he doesn't have a responsibility to do this. This is different to putting up with people like you -- that is part of our role as staff.

    If you think we ban for posting opinions, then you are sadly misinformed. The only circumstances that lead to banning are if you disrupt the forum big-time. Opinions don't do that. Flames do, however.

    "Discussing my opinion should not get me banned! vote on it. I bet you no one cares tell us whats new in GBA or STFU"

    Agreed, no need to but go ahead if anyone actually will, and that sentence makes no sense (respectively). A bit of elaboration on that last point: We post new rom releases anyway. It's sort of What We Do. This is an extension of that. He's been doing this for months -- did you have a problem with it earlier?

    If you think there's an issue viewing it, simply BOOKMARK THE FORUM INDEX, not the portal. Done and done. View the News Forum if you want.

    Looking at replies in those threads show that many people appreciate what Jumpman's doing. I am one of them too.



    Second post.


    I am not lame. As the forum has been set up, moderators cannot post new news. Rather than muck around with group priviliges just for one member, the suggestion was to have someone with access to the news portal to write them up for Jumpman. I volunteered.

    We already tell people about game releases. That's what ALL THE OTHER NEWS IS ABOUT. We do so in a perfectly legal way, as we'd like to keep existing.

    You're not forced to read anything on the main page. What, is your mother there saying "you can't touch the mouse until you finish reading every word"?

    We lock them for reasons stated above.

    Consider this your official warning. This is not for your opinion -- it's for the curses and insults you're rampantly flinging in the face of staff members.

    -Tempest out.-

    Oh please, give me a break. You read everything on the main page just because it's there huh? Amazing. I guess you read who released each game and what the serial number is and all since it's there. Wow, you should send that into a newstation or something. You could be "The Boy Who Has To Read What He Sees".

    Demonstar: Maybe not much happened in the GBA world this week. Ever think of that? Not every week can be action packed with stuff like "New Zelda Announced!" "Nintendo Gives Out Free GBAs!" some weeks, pink GBAs are the only news. It happens.

    Lol I was kidding. Don't ever take me seriously unless I say so. 60-70% of all my posts are sarcasm and other crap. btw, I think Kiczek was referring to when Tempest got the tags mixed up with URL and Bold.

    I'll consider myself warned.

    oh and jumpman17 maybe add something thats newsworthy next time. GBA or PC Game releases. PC Game Demos are just lame.
    There are MANY sites for PC Game Demo info this is GBATemp.net not PCDemoTemp.net

    Oh and jumpman17 I do take note of who released each game and what the serial number is and all since I actually release GBA Games to the internet

    I don't just act like a lil photoshop fanboy with a cute lil girlie sig and post news about PC Demos to a GBA Website.

    not every week can be action packed with stuff

    All I can say is wow. It's just a news thread, and since the news threads get decent amount of replies I don't see how they're so bad. This site isn't all about gba, I've seen all kinds of topics posted that aren't related to the gba at all. But guess what? I don't care! The news threads are about general video game news, and surprisingly enough people that play on their GBA actually do play other video game systems/handhelds or on their pc.

    I loved how you saw that news thread on the main page and "had" to read it. I guess you like to read all pop-up windows too. Heck, you have to right?

    Obviously you have to since they "pop-up" with like 5 words, which you'll remember for the rest of your life even after you close the window, it does no good.

    Personaly, I enjoy having the news in a succint place. The portal is where I do most of my browsing, and everything there is pretty cool...

    The updates, which I think are what this fool is refering to, are also very helpful, as I have neither the time nor the resources, this guy seems to have an Echlon-like data mine set up or something, to browse all the relevent sites. Sure, I goto IGN. Some times I even goto the Nintendo site. But this the bottom line is, this is where I can find info that interests me. Thats what a portal IS, thats what its there for!

    And, in reference to the "I don't just act like a lil photoshop fanboy with a cute lil girlie sig and post news about PC Demos to a GBA Website." comment, seriously man, get help. If you think that any one is a photoshop fanboy here, put out what ever lit substance you have, turn the computer off and go out side. Read a book. TALK TO OTHER PEOPLE. Because if thats running through your skull when the VAST MAJORITY of this site is dedicated to things much less grand than ones abilities, aspiring or developed, you need to find something to measure your preceptions by.

    I know that many people here would not be able to nurture those parts of them selves artistic, to grow beyond what others have provided in shallow pursuit of moneis, without the areas provided here. This is not because the space is there. No, it is the space is here.

    This is, in opinion most humbled, a community. It is not the greatest, as you can see by this very thead that there are those who wish to disrupt what others have worked hard for. But, it serves to fill the void that previous generations have not exprienced. That of a virtual raised individual. Who has no concepts of society outside his own skull, who finds amusment in the pain of others where the response he sees is mearly text and image. These youth have no concept of sublties, of deeper meanings. But in this space, a portion of that can be found.

    No, good Sir. I do believe you have an appology to make to Mr. T Stormwind. As he, a man who, to my knowledge, begets no remunerations for his dealings here. And, has done nothing actively to offend you. Which include dealing with those of lesser mentality, which I know to be a trying subject.

    Do not attempt to refute this post blow by blow, as that will defeat its purpose as a complete message. However, if you do read this, in it's entirety, and have an intellegent response, then Mr. kiczek, or Ms, feel free to take part in civilized communications.

    Regards- X

    I like the news posts too... while I could and usually do go to Gamespot or IGN, jumpman17 does a good job of making it short, clean, and to the point. I appreciate that since that's hard to find on most websites amongst all the clutter and media. And if I find something interesting, I'll look it up somewhere else. A little gaming news here and there outside of normal gba topics isn't going to kill anyone, except whiney little snotnose kids who like to start new threads about how they're forced to read gaming news... oh the humanity!!

    Putting anything on the front page non-gba related is way off base imo. You need to focus on your core audience, those who come for the gba on the front. Stop catering to these gamefaqs forum retards, which lately gbatemp resembles alot, look at recent topics.. can they be any more similar...

    Put GBA on the front of a GBA website, stick all other non-pertinent info (gba rom tools, gba related articles excluded) out of site where it belongs, if someone wants to browse around to find someone just copying from other websites as jumpman is doing. Perhaps next issue jumpman will give credit to his sources instead of just giving all props to himself for doing nothing really, except trolling websites and putting together some hodge podge....

    and while we are on the subject of change, unban teh speechless, he never hurt nobody. If it wasnt for his help, gbatemp rom kiddies wouldn't have their leaf green or mario v1.1 roms...so do the right thing, instead of the wrong thing...stick gba only on your front page, and unban the speechless and stop being such egomaniac driven tyrant nazi mods.

    Thx for your time, my dad thanks you too...

    RMSD: Tell me please sir, who is the core audience? The members who rarely post and come by just to see the sites? Or, the people who stick around, post continualy and build a sense of comunity in a forum. as a forum is not simply one topic but many, I submit that the smaller group that forms the second option are the ones who's say weighs most.

    Would it be fair for a city's population to be spit, for some to stay a long time and the rest just be passers through. And, in this same city, for the group who's interests are largely one aspect of the cirty, say the Cinema District, to force all the content of the city to be focused on the Cinemas? Or even, of all the billboards to only have information on what Cinemas are showing? No, a city must tend to all people within its limits. And I feel that this site does.

    I think you will agree that while the greatest common denomonator here is Game Boy Advance information, that there are many other common denomonatores that can be used to create stronger bonds between members.

    That is what this is really about. Not some snivling little whelp who can't tell his dick from his ass bitching because the main site doesn't look like he thinks it should. Suck it up. Thats the way life is. Just because I don't like the way some my mother's desktop looks doesnt mean that I fuck it up on her.

    So: Buck up, Realise that just because you will probably never meet the people here doesn't mean that you can treat them with disrespect. If you don't like it, shove off....
