    We'll I am calling shennanigans on this CNET businewss. It just seems too fishy......stick around until the 2nd.....

    Too orchestrated.....Mods leaving, new mods from cnet, april 1 is tommorow. Cnet buying a flash/hack scene? I think not, they wouldn't touch half of this place with a ten inch pole, let alone just the testing area. A cmpany who I am sure recieves funding by advertising for game companies is not going to aquire a scene site that potentially pirates said games......Also there was no request for bonemonkey to be banned by Cnet.....that would have been the first stipulation I think.

    If Ace, Thug, and Spikey are really quitting for good, that bites.

    Everything seems to be a joke where someone was thinking "how can we pile bad news on bad news on bad news."

    Lets see 3 good mods quit....that sucks.
    Cnet buys GBAtemp.net well that really sucks, welcome to tempfaqs.com
    New Cnet mods coming in to protect against swearing and illegal(potentially 90% of what gets talked about) info being posted
    The beloved testing area is being removed.....Possibly the most heralded tightest knit board on the site.....The testing area is Gbatemp's personality....thats a big one.
    The amount of moderated posts, and censoring in the topic is a nice touch.

    Not one good point was brought forward by any one (current mods, or cnet mods) you'd think they'd be pushing the pros of this happening to save as many from jumping ship as they can.

    I was born at night......but not last night.

    BY THE WAY A "CNET MOD" CLOSING THE TOPIC ANNOUNCING IT WAS GENUIS!





    P.S. If its true ....well theres always IRC.

    LOOL, nice try guys. This is THE BEST April Fools day ever for me. I'm 99% sure it's a joke.

    Anyway, check the cnet site, under cnet network sites: http://www.cnetnetworks.com/?tag=ft
    No gbatemp there..[​IMG] And no news on the front page. Anyway, this is a joke. [​IMG] A VERY good one.

    this probably a really bad joke, if a lot of gullible people believe this, they are going to lose a lot of members

    this isn't a good joke. why would cnet be interested in a site dedicated mainly to news about flash carts and group releases? it's like the MPAA buying vcdquality.com

    I'm putting my money that it's a joke as well. I'm hoping it's a joke at least. I'll be sticking around regardless.. I still need my Wii and DS news.

    I'm 100% sure it's a joke. Other CNet sites don't link back to GBATemp nor do any of them state the new partnership =P Caught you. *goes back to pirating*

    Remove the banner ASAP, it seems to be increasing load time.

    So they can send out a message to those who don't like flash carts and group releases saying "Hey, if you slip us enough green our little site can have 'server problems' or 'not meet the expected revenue quotas'."

    Then, poof, no more problem site.

    I'm not saying that's the case.

    This better be a joke else well send the /b/tards at it hehe [​IMG]
    If they take away all the good stuff like the scene news, what's gbatemp worth then?
    There are enough legal game forums so there's no need for that....
    I assure if this is true gbatemp will get flamed and spammed all over the place and it won't be me.
