    Here's my suggestion that the NDS Releases section at GBAtemp will be removed to speed up the site. Why? Well, because of the new major DS game releases (e.g. Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver, Scribblenauts, etc.), it will slow down the site.

    Also, to make faster the site is to get G-Online down.

    That's my suggestion.

    Its not the releases that slow it down, its all the noobs who cry about what to do next in Pokemon and ask retarded questions like "can i hack scribblenauts".

    Of course it will slow down the site for some major DS game releases. I want the NDS Releases section will get down to speed up the website.

    ...No
    A popular game being released takes up no more space than any other game. Boxart, release info, ect. (You are talking about the thing in the middle of the homepage, correct?)
    Like I said before, its all the people discussing the game that slows down the site. Taking down the release info will do nothing, people will still discuss it. And if you want to get rid of that, you might as well not have a forum at all

    edit: oh and what happens when a big wii game gets released? Should they take out the wii releases too?

    i doubt that will help because it wont stop everyone saying OMG how do i fix pokemon or OMG M&L 3 don't work i need a fix...if they could keep everything in 1 thread it might help but people are creating so many topics about the same thing its ridiculous.

    but if they take down the release sections everyone will have to go other sites to find release info and as elixerdream has stated before the more traffic GBATemp gets the better for the sponsors of GBATemp.

    Worst. Suggestion. Ever...

    If you take away the DS game releases, you take away the majority of the site's visitors.

    [​IMG] all hope is lost.

    as for taking the NDS releases down...meh won't happen. Problem comes with when many guests come and start to F5 to see if a patch has been released for a specific game.

    Then they could check their favorite rom site come back to gbatemp to ask for patches and spamming that too? ATM you're only thinking that gbatemp has releases? Other sites have them too. Think outside the box. [​IMG]

    we should stop posting or visiting the site and that would help

    gbatemp needs traffic
    if always just the regulars visit gbatemp
    gbatemp will die
    think about it why i say that

    Remember, some noobs at GBAtemp may spam or asking questions in the new major DS game releases in the NDS Releases section, and it will slow the site, even in the future.

    So I want the NDS Releases section down to speed up the site, and will prevent noobs stop asking questions or spam in that section.

    Antokan,
    NDS release section serves that purpose!
    if w/o that thread/section
    you will see all the spam threads spamming all the sub forums!
    won't that create a lot more work for the mods ?

    EDIT: you are not here long enough to witness that

    i do understand what are you trying to say [​IMG]
    what would be better is the maturity of the gamers/visitors/members!
    up till today, even i could play mario i would be happy! if not just wait..thats my mentality!
    is not like i will die now if i don't get to play it~! if i am that desperate i will pay for it [​IMG]
    but not everyone thinks like me!! they will spam, cry and bug for their fix!

    furtheremore, talking about site slow down? i was told by someone is not because of our server sucks!
    actually from what i know our server is a BEAST [​IMG]
    is the program we use here is not meant to handle the load of traffic~! i was told that Narin had tweaked the program abit but still whatever we are using is not effective to handle such load!
    i am not good at this stuff maybe someone could add in or correct what i just said
