    That was an interesting year indeed! So what do you think 2008 is going to be like? Tell us by replying to this topic... but not before you've read the last bit of this message: some nice stats. Oh yay, everyone likes stats!
    • Amount of topics before 2007: ~41,400. Amount of topics at the end of 2007: over 70,200. Increase: 75% !
    • Amount of posts before 2007: ~530,000. Amount of posts at the end of 2007: almost 920,000. Increase: almost 75% !
    • Amount of member registrations before 2007: ~61,300. Amount of member registrations at the end of 2007: almost 111,000. Increase: over 80% !
    • Thanks to Digg.com we also broke our former "most users online simultaneously" record: the new record is 2,746 users online on September 13.
    • There are now over 1350 files available for download on our Download Center
    • This year, on the forums only, we've had over 50 million page views and 10 million visits (with an obvious average of 5 page views per visit); 3 million unique visitors from 204 different countries (Top 5: USA, UK, Canada, France, Australia). These stats were generated by Google Analytics.

    Honestly? I think 2008 is going to be the year of 1000 crashes (Eat your heart out, Disney!). When Smash Bros Brawl hits this place is going to go nuts; but I also feel like it's going to bring in a lot of new members. Hopefully ones that post. I also imagine 2008 will be the true end of the GBA era, with all developers switching over solely to DS in relation to Nintendo handhelds. And while I suspect it won't change, I hope 2008 is also a year where people are less disobedient; it's a hard knock life, for mods. [​IMG]

    Nice growth. Lets hope GBAtemp grows even more and lets also hope the DS scene gets even bigger. With the sales for the DS still skyrocketing one can only wonder what will happen [​IMG]

    I know GBATemp for a year and I think it's the best website about Wii/DS [​IMG]

    2008 will be a great year for the Nintendo Wii : Super Smash Bros Brawl, Mario Kart, WiiFit ( [​IMG] ), Zack & Wiki for Europeans and maybe Red Steel 2.

    Woot! 2007 on GBAtemp was awesome. Even though I was here for about a quarter of the year.
    Can't wait till 2008! Various great titles for the DS... And other stuff.

    Great, but I can't understand why HaZeY was not on this list ! Man, someone who has hacked an opensource program has really made a breaktrough.

    Good year to all tempers, and Costello I hope you'll know the name of every dialogs title in Windows by the end of the year ! (Sorry for the curse... [​IMG])
