    Because Nintendo does not use the seal anymore, and the amount of shovelware is gigantic, I say lets make our own Gbatemp Seal of Quality! Or a Gbatemp seal of shovelware! Such as bellow! [​IMG]

    Nintendo have just trademarked the Seal of Quality again so maybe they do plan on reusing it.

    Anyway I'll still be using this on my threads.

    I think this is a great idea, the Shovelware star is quite a good idea, But I would have a suggestion that you make the two look visually different as right now it would be very easy to confuse the two..

    Perhaps Silver / bronze for the Shovelware award and gold for the seal of quality?

    nice idea, but the shovelware logo should be looking more like crap [​IMG]

    maybe something like this:

    Edit:

    maybe a stuff member can add something like this to the main page:

    It needs to use the GBAtemp font and gamer logo though.

    I think what would be cool is to use the GBAtemp dude in the banner (if he has a name, I don't know what it is) with a big thumbs up for good games and hardware, and the same dude but with an angry, depressed or disgusted look and a thumbs down for shovelware/crap games or hardware.

    I'd attempt to actually make the logos, but I absolutely suck at PhotoShop and it would look like crap if I tried.

    I think that would have a lot more character on this site than using Ninty's old logo as a template. It would also be truly "original".

    Just my opinion of course.

    I like .TaKaM's better -- It seems more cleaner, and less crowded, however still could use a little bit of work.

    But yes, we do need a Seal of Shovelware.

    Good idea, but most of the gbatempers probably know if the game is shit or not, but but but it's still ok.
    Other hand moms buying games for their kids don't know which is quality. : P
    (That's why tehy probably added that seal in the first place dunno)

    I agree. It would be really useful.

    I jsut created a thread about the same "mood", that Was caused by shovelware.

    Because by testing and playing shovelware, not quality product, the gamer's pleasure go away.
