    Our staff members had a meeting today, i'll sum up what changes we decided for the board [​IMG]

    _ Gbasaves forums has been deleted, since Gbasaves.net has its own forum now, you can find it here : http://www.gbasaves.info/forum/

    _ All the images uploaded on the GbaTemp Art Gallery forum will be deleted, so basically they will not be hosted by GBATEMP anymore, save the files since the upload directory will be wiped in one week, you can still post your works by linking them to your personal host.

    _ The "Grog" and "Person above me" topics have been deleted since they took too much space, you are free to start them again in Testing Area but periodically they will be deleted to save space.

    _ Avatar size has a new restriction: AVATARS MAX FILESIZE IS 25kb and no more moderators have the powers to remove your avatar if it exceeds the maximum size.

    _ All Validating members have been deleted to save up space

    Thanks for the attention [​IMG]

    Good changes. I agree with them all. I see no reason to have an avatar that's larger than 25kb anyway.

    Good Job you guys.

    All you guys Grog hating are really going to hate it when it is restarted [​IMG]

    The idea is to stop threads from getting as huge as the "Grog" thread and "teh person above meh", not to kill them outright...


    I'd like to take the time to welcome KiVan back to the board (even if he's been on irc and the staff forum) and hope that he's back for good.... [​IMG]
