    - Adverts on the portal - This helps us to fund the site. Adverts will NOT be placed inside threads, as to keep the community happy -- discussion will go uninterrupted.

    - 'Testing Area' to close - By request of CNET Networks we are unfortunately having to close the 'Testing Area' sub-forum. This is out of our hands.

    - Censoring - Profanities will be censored out in discussion to make the forum more family-friendly
    . Posts will be more heavily moderated in order to insure no illegal discussion takes place.

    - Latest ROM Information and News under discussion with CNET Networks - We are trying our best to keep GBA, Nintendo DS and Wii "scene" release information on the site, we are currently under negotiation with CNET Networks and will let you know its fate
    as soon as we do.

    All I can say is wake me up when april first ends....

    It better be an April Fools joke. This site being taken over by CNet would be super lame. I think they would lose about half their user base or more.

    Close this thread too, Gestapo CNET mods.

    Well, I guess the General Off-Topic board will be the new Testing Area.
    Kind of seems like that, now - doesn't it?

    Stick around.
    See what happens.

    I hate the new change too.

    I'm playing wait-and-see. If this site gets watered-down to the point of no longer being what I registered here for. Bye-bye.

    ....and the big massive cheat.dat will go with me.

    If there is no longer rom release information and no "test" joke boards, what exactly is the purpose of this website? You might as well go to GameFAQs which has a much much larger community

    Yeah, I can see GBAtemp fizzling out into shit like GAMEFAQs.

    But, we'll see.

    There was a lot of talk before about the DS and WII "underground" going mainstream.

    if it isn't a joke consider CNET as the mainstreaming.

    Time to start "digging" again!
