    I 'm not sure I like the new one...

    I mean, I went away for almost a year, and now I come back it almost looks like Facebook...

    I'm not sure I like the 'following and followers' bit, and the new layout...

    On the other hand though, I do like the alerts and the likes (even though it looks a hell of a lot like Facebook now...)

    I also miss some little things like the little medals under your username (I really don't know why, I just suppose I got used to seeing them and now I kind of miss them...) and the old, slightly larger avatars (now Dry Bone's head and feet get cut off...)

    Anyone else?

    Yeah, I miss when we didn't have as many Pokenoobs and romkids flooding the forums with shit.

    The following/follower thing is a little weird, but none of the changes really bother me all that much. No more bragging rights at 3000 posts though. >.>

    Are we talking cosmetic wise or member activeness wise? If both, there are a ton of things I miss. Nothing you can do it about now.

    I kinda like the new layout. One of the things I miss was the Review Portal thingy.

    Do I miss when the site was a place for insightful discussion, when Guild wasn't such a bitch and when you could come here to discuss news without everyone getting all pissy over everything? Yeah, I do.




    But XenForo is okay. No blogs suck, though.

    I... Miss Goli.

    (In all seriousness I don't even remember what the old forum looked like/worked. I'm that used to this new one.) I also see that someone was able to make the GBAtemp Wiki into the old theme, that possible for the entire forum or what?0

    Possible, I'd imagine it would take a long time. I'm more worried about them bringing back all of the features from v3 (which it seems the OP missed).

    I miss the three columns customizable portal with separate frames for homebrew news, reviews and game releases!
    But I also know we are not missing much anyway, there aren't any noteworthy DS or Wii releases, and 3DS isn't hacked yet....

    Yeah, I was in hospital for 3 weeks, and wasn't on the Temp for nearly a month, the layout takes patience and some getting used to.

    No because moderators and community make this website so good. They are still there.

    Can you hide posts from certain people, there are some things I wish to say at this point...

    If the community wants to be better every member needs to put forth the effort to make it so. The community isn't necessarily any worse than it was before (except for all of the puns in the USN).

    I've found myself visiting less recently (never posted much anyway...), partly due to the website changes (i remember enabling adblock specifically to block the stupid likes etc, couldn't set it up again for XenForo), but mainly due to frequently entering a interesting looking thread and finding 95% of the time it's already polluted by the same members posting the usual crap barely related to the actual subject -_-

    Get most of my gaming related news etc from other sources now, which is a shame really, I liked lurking here from 2006-2011ish :(

    Meh, I still donated $5 to the site after it was back from the hack, will have to see how much longer I can hold out before it all becomes nothing more than the trash posts you find at the bottom of most blogs.

    lol GBAtemp good? lmfao

    This place, man, I come here every day but damn. Its all the romkids and pokemon, the other mods? LMFAO gimme a break. You bitches should just be glad that I even post here anymore because when I do you get to see what a good post looks like. I only come at GBAtemp to lol at the kiddies in their playground, I spend the rest of my time at grown up forums where they dont talk about roms, the wii u and pokemon all day lol.

    GBAtemp R.I.P. after 2006 for real, that's when all the cool members left this childs nursery and when the scene died. Now if you excuse me I am done loling at posts from 12 year olds on this forum for one day.

    Bye.

    Yeah, I do. I miss doing this too, but I only found out about this glitch (see attached) probably within the last month before temp got hacked.

    I can't remember how I did that glitch though, but it was pretty weird.
