    http://gbatemp.net/u109185-tempbot As you can see, this guys profile is rather unusual. How'd he manage?
    P.S. Though he was apparently last active in March of '09, he is in the recent posts column?!?!?!?!

    Tempbot is quite obviously a bot that's made to post various news.

    EDIT: And by news I mean releases.

    Though some of his topics (duh!) seem computer-generated, his posts are smarter than a human.

    To be fair, I didn't find out about Tempbot until 500 to 3000 posts in.

    You should try having a PM conversion with him. He has quite a sense of humor!

    I should know, I'm one of his best friends. ^_^ (we go back a long way)

    Staff doesn't really log in with the Tempbot account. There are scripts that let you post under Tempbot, but you're still logged in as yourself.
    That's why Tempbot's last activity was years back, and why its postcount doesn't increase.

    They wanted to stay true to the manga, in which he said "It's over 8000!". Not that it matters, he said "It's over 9000!" similarly to Brian Drummond in the Nickelodeon version:

    In the video on the right? I think it sounds just fine, he certainly doesn't sound calm to me.

    no the left the kai one. in the original he goes ballistic in kai he doesnt even say it properly his supposed to scream and say it's over 8000! but he just says it so calmy that's the only thing i don't like about the kai series.

    Technically speaking, in the original dub and the original manga he not only said 8000, but he also says it calmly. Ocean Dub is the only one that goes ballistic and, well, that's Brian Drummond for ya. They were both fanservice, the Nick version was for people who wanted to hear the over-the-top "Over 9000", while the DVD version was for those who wanted a pure experience, just like in the manga. Personally, I like both, so I'm fine with either one.
