    You may have noticed that banners have started appearing in multiple sections of the site: we have indeed found a new sponsor who will be partnerring all of our future operations. Not only this means we no longer have to worry about server issues since all costs are covered, but more interestingly for the community: if you were around on GBAtemp at the same time of the year in 2010, 2009 and previously, you probably know what's coming *wink*. And let me tell you something: thanks to our new sponsor this year should be quite exciting! Stay tuned... more info in a couple of days!
    (PS: this also marks the end of annoying/random ad banners stuck at the bottom of the window for guests and newcomers.)

    Yay! I get to participate for the first time! I wasn't a member at this time last year, but I still tried and failed to solve the first clue. :3

    I remember. I got the first clue, but didn't know what to do with it.

    That's great to know. I wonder what the theme will be for this year.

    thanks to our sponsor this year will most likely hold the best tempmas GBAtemp has ever had!
    on all levels ;)

    I expect that a lot of people will complain about the ads (which are well targeted though) but they'll probably end up realizing, once Tempmas is over, that it was well worth it. If you take a step back and think: what's wrong with a few images on the site, when I can get so much in return?

    Doesn't bother me just as you said what's wrong with a few images on the site.

    those ads don't really block my view. if those were stacked up to 7-10 times, only then i would count them as annoying.

    UPDATE2: I'm seeing some ads between posts yay~

    I haven't done Tempmas but it looks like a ton of fun. I think I'll try my hand at it this year.

    Can't see the banners... then again, I am a terrible person and use AdBlock, so.

    I pride myself on figuring out Tempmas without cheating... still see that first clue right away from the last one.
    Looking forward to it.

    I loved the previous scavenger hunt! I actually managed to get to the end!

    Can't wait for the new one...
