    did anybody notice that even though this site has over 100,000 members only about 700 of them sign in normally i mean like where did they go it sounds pretty weird for them to have over 100,000 members and the most they have ever had sign in was something over a 1,000(cant remeber how much it was)

    That number is people signed it at one moment in time. So at once there were like, 1,500 members signed in at once.

    I reckon that most sign up to make a few posts like "zomg, why isn't my r$ playing gba gaems?!" and the like. Then they go back to whatever hole they crawled out of until the next Zelda/Mario game is dumped.

    The majority of GBAtemp just learn how to p1rate, and then they leave forever.

    The regular posters are the ones who have stayed in this awesome community. [​IMG]

    Don't double post. And it was removed as it just caused server issues from countless amounts of people looking at it at the same time. It's still available at the bottom of the forum selection list though for those who want to see it.

    The max number of people signed on is the number of registered users. As to finish your signing up, you have to sign in for it to finalize.

    because people register in the hope of finding download links...but instead they found efnet

    I should add that maybe some regard this as primarily a news site, with supplementary forums. You do not need to sign in to keep up with the going-ons

    My guess is that many think they have to sign up to get links to ROMs. When they find that ROMs aren't available here, they never return.

    Their loss.

    Does this site ever do account clean-ups? Like from people who joined years ago and don't have even a single post?

    I don't think so... Member info doesn't take up much space, and it keeps the number of members impressive...

    I was one of those fags that signed up to ask one question then just leave, *shudder*. But then i realized how awesome this community is and i try to check back at least everyday now and contribute my knowledge to this awesome place. [​IMG]

    The more people the better (to an extent) and the more helpful information we get to answer our questions.

    Correct, it doesn't really affect performance at all. And uses very little space (we're talking
