    I am a fairly regular user on GBATemp, as I am sure you all know,

    but I can't help thinking the creation of a little newsletter to outline the best topics and the front-page portal news could be made and emailed to all GBATemp members via their email address (duh). Magazine staff could be in charge of the whole thing - just a little newsletter with some facts on, a bit like a RSS feed, but not just a link-more detailed.

    Kinda pointless.


    If you're a regular temper, you'll get on the site and find important info by yourself.


    Also, there are probably thousands of emails. It would hurt the server sending those all.

    It's been done before - The Google Wave (Or was it GBAtemp wave).
    Anyway, that was a pretty good idea, shame Llama Riot never got round to doing it.

    It has been done a few times:
    The Temper Post
    The Weekly Wave (stopped after 2 issues, not because Llama got banned though)
    The Temper Weekly (a project of luke_c, never actually had anything released I think)

    It's more work than you'd think (+ staffers are usually quite busy already)

    Yeah but the idea was to post on the Google Wave and GBAtemp.

    It's not a bad idea but staff doing it is a bad idea

    If you PM's costy and asked if he'd be able to send the emails and if he says OK then you could do everything else yourself (or with the help of other tempers) [​IMG]

    Do people who create the newsletters usually get banned? [​IMG]

    From the looks of it, yes they do for some odd reason. [​IMG]

    Gahh, what's up with that? I miss those brosephs. [​IMG]

    Well, at any rate, it can't hurt to have a newsletter, can it? I mean, as long as someone's willing to put forth the effort, I have no qualms!

    I have/had something planned as others have pointed out but it's not my top priority at the moment.
