    GBATemp Member Meeting #1

    The GBATemp member meeting is taking place in 10 minutes. (2pm GMT)

    You can join the meeting through a java applet by clicking HERE

    or by connecting to IRC on the EFnet server, channel #gbatemp-meeting

    I look forward to seeing you there.

    [update]

    The meeting has finished.

    Changes discussed that we are now thinking about implimenting

    -Upgrade GBATemp to Invision Power Board 1.3
    -add new medals/smilies
    -add new skins to the forum
    -make a new banner for gbatemp
    -add a totally new section to the site for reviews using a database system
    -a few more minor details but nothing that really comes to mind

    I'd like to also take this time to announce that since Luse has resigned from running the Official GBATemp Contests I will be stepping in to take his place. You can submit ideas for future contests in the dedicated thread in the contest forum or by simply PMing me with your suggestion.

    We had a turnout of nearly 40 people at this meeting which i think was a great success. Although members were all over the place with conversations popping up everywhere we still got the important issues discussed. It was great to be able to talk to fellow members about issues relating with GBATemp and just chatting.

    On behalf of all the staff i'd like to thank all the members who attended, I look forward to having another member meeting in the future .

    Things are going pretty smoothly so far [​IMG] We'll all be here for what I'd expect to be at least 2 hours so don't think it'll be over so quickly.

    Future or GBATemp looks really good. I'm especially waiting for the review section and the board upgrade.

    Yep, it was a good meeting. As most of the issues seemed to be purely cosmetic, I'd say gbatemp is in good shape.

    I hope someone gives Dice his badges (or indeed badgers) before the next meeting...

    Yay 40 people attended to the meeting - there are more than 15.000 registered members [​IMG]

    I guess 40 still isn’t that bad though...

    I'd have to say it went well, I kept a log of the discussion just incase the official log keeper's didn't come out or something. Just in case...
