    So the GBATemp TempDB Cheats Database is down? What happened? All the grateful cheat-code users out there that use the database are out in the dark. elixirdream's great work is gone, without a trace that it was there. Well, what happened to it? Did it get moved/deleted? I hope a flame isn't coming my way if it was deleted *brace* . I clicked on my bookmark - http://cheats.gbatemp.net/Temp/ and got:

    500 Internal Server Error
    nginx/0.7.64


    I'm guessing by 'Internal' that it isn't an error on my part.

    Remove the /temp/ in your URL.

    It's an internal server error. Any idea if it's going to be down for good? Usually when it goes down, the link doesn't disappear from the main cheats.gbatemp page. =\ Also thanks for the link hakoda

    Yeah, it's completely missing...had a quick look on the cheats forum and unless I've missed something it hasn't been mentioned there.

    It's been mentioned here.

    Elixirdream removed the temp database because he got sick of people whining and feeling entitled.

    Which means yes, it's gone.

    That sucks. Was never a big user of the cheats, but it is definitely nice to have them sometimes.

    Never noticed the drama, but why would anyone be crying so badly for cheats that the persons who put them up just said "f**k it!"??

    Frustrating for all of us who were happy to get them, if and whenever they popped up. [​IMG]

    Damn whiners.

    It's a shame since the people who appreciate it just never complain.
    So all elixir sees are whiners, beggers, flamers, trolls, and all sorts of other annoying people.

    But as I've said before, he meant to quit like, a year ago so the only surprise here is that he kept going for a year.

    Elixirdream quit. He deserves a rest after all of the unreasonable demands of the forum. I mean it isn't his job to do it, he's just helping the community cos he wants to. So since he wants to take a break we should just let him be. [​IMG]

    Since your post has both posts that I agree with, Costello, I'll add to it.

    People keep saying it's wrong of him to throw in the towel when they don't even know how much he's dealt with.
    Be surprised the other code hackers didn't do the same!
    Too many people felt entitled and spoiled, he warned them all months ago and when they still continued to act the same way, he finally took the retirement he withheld.
    So please, to those who think he "shouldn't" have given in, understand that a person can only tolerate so much and that he dealt with much more than he could tolerate, be happy and appreciative he did that.
    He even updated the database one last time AFTER he quit, say thank you.

    I don't know if he never quit sooner, because he loved the ones who appreciated him or he was just being stubborn [​IMG]

    I support him whatever he chooses, but yes Elix, we [​IMG] you!

    Well that sucks [​IMG]. I didn't know there were even problems with flamers and whiners. I figured the TempDB was a community compiled list since the main site doesn't update anymore. If I'd known someone ran the whole thing I'd have come on and thanked him.

    Anyway in case he reads this, thank you elixirdream for all the trouble and sorry I leeched without realizing the effort behind it all

    I thought I heard that he resigned from code making a while ago but still helped maintain the database. Given the fact that I know next to nothing about codes there's not a great deal I can do...

    He's a stubborn old fool, but he enjoyed making codes and helping out the few people who weren't a bunch of pricks which is why he kept going.

    But now he just no longer enjoys doing it and so he won't do it any more, as simple as that.
    Why he no longer enjoys it...well, you can probably take a few guesses.

    Poor guy deserves a break anyway.

    Ah, I was already wondering when it as going to happen. I think it's not only the whiners and flamers that made him stop with what he did.
    Dem wankers over at GameFAQS stole codes from the database and claimed them to be their own. He has warned them but they still continued their ungrateful activities. It's too bad that elixirdream has quit, but there's nothing we can do about it, so please, don't bug him with it.
    Maybe he'll come back when a game he wubs is released. You never know...
