GBAtemp Releases Management Center
For staff and members!
Posting new releases on GBAtemp has always been a task reserved to our staff members, mainly because our posting scripts were terrible in terms of security and ease of use. But now with our new Releases Management Center, all our problems are solved!




Not only everything is regrouped on the same page - adding/editing/deleting NDS/Wii/GBA releases, but members are now allowed to post releases! So if you're quicker than us at spotting releases, feel free to contribute and lighten our workload! Just be aware of the fact that member submitted releases will have to go through validation before showing up in the release list & portal.

Quick notes on how to use this module: first, we'd like to ask you to submit a release only when you're absolutely certain that the release is real. Also note that we will not accept incomplete submissions (missing boxart, nfo, etc.) or improperly formatted information. Thanks for your understanding!

This is my favourite of the new features, it's like every member is now magazine staff! We tried a similar system on PSPSaves with the users being able to submit new saves, tools and apps and it worked out really well. Takes a lot of strain off the usual news posters and also ensures you have the latest news and info posted at all times as theres potentially 1000s of people about to post the latest release.
If anyone isn't 100% certain if a release is new it's best to check #NDSTemp for NDS, #GBATemp for GBA and #WiiTemp for Wii all on efnet.

We aren't the only ones with this numbering. I can think of 3 other sites off the top of my head that follow the same system.

Any way to add stuff to already-posted news items, such as savetypes? I've noticed that save information is rarely posted, and since I use emulators a lot with code hacking I've got some of the savetypes figured out.

*EDIT*
I'm a blockhead, it seem that the feature isn't available for lowly members such as myself. (As in, the feature isn't bolded)

...Carry on.

Can we use this to report homebrew release too?

You can use all of the options that are in bold when you go to the RMC page. If you look at the screenshot in Costello's opening post, you can see all of the available options.
Editing existing information is mainly a staff option for obvious reasons.
