    Maybe a longtime member (or long time staff) could make a wikipedia article on gbatemp.

    I would make one myself but i don't feel I have been here long enough.

    I doubt a Wikipedia Article would make us more popular
    I mean, the only people who'd find the page are people who know the site, at least by name anyway...

    What do ya need your title changed to?

    haha

    alot of people think that flashcards and sites like this are illegal

    a wikipedia article will prove that there not (but can be used for illegal things(obviously))

    If you make an article about this site on wikipedia, it will most likely get deleted as not notable.

    That's the article that caused me to choose the cart I did, and eventually lead me here.

    Are there like rules on there that would keep us from editing the article? I know there's like the person a page is about can't edit their own page etc.

    of course not, the whole idea of wikipedia is that anyone can edit.
    just try to cite reliable sources

    I don't see why it would have any effect. I found GBAtemp looking for ROMs and homebrew. It's one of the first things (if not the first) you'll come across. And I stayed [​IMG]
