    Aye, good times. Lots of history with the temp over the years. I remember that huge outage back in 2011/2012.
    Ah, it was on my birthday! I remember. I remember I got pissed off because I wanted to have a happy birthday thread LOL

    This is the reason in detail

    About half a year into the forums life, the staff had to come to the decision that ROMs would no longer be available to download from GBAtemp, and all warez and other illegal material would be ruled out on the forum. The reason this was done is because a lot of members and the staff themselves had really come to appreciate the forums and each other, and didn't want to risk losing the community they had built up. So to avoid legal issues and to make sure GBAtemp was never shut down, all ROMs, ROM links, warez and more were now strictly forbidden on the 'new GBAtemp'.

    I'll admit, it's what brought me here. I lurked for at least a couple years before registering. All I was after were the links.

    If you change your GBAtemp.net skin back to V.1, you can still download those roms. :bortz2:

    I've been a lurker since at least 2005 then I had a question I couldn't find an answer to so I signed up. No regrets this forum is awesome.
