    We need to make this page more organized and unorphaned. People don't join by subconsciously typing gbatemp.net in there browser, they join when they know what it is. The page is in ruin, even though it's better than some pages in Wikipedia, let's make it better. I'm gonna started editing this (I added the mascots), so if anyone wants to join in, sure. The Page for GBAtemp in Wikitemp is also quite in ruin..

    The issue is still notability. Many sites do not link to gbatemp because it allows talk of piracy...

    However one way to go at it would be the homebrew and ROM hack developments. When somebody here develops something and it spreads onto other sites that link back (like the base jumping game or the new super mario 3 hack), that can be used as third-party references.

    I can think of 3 pages that can link to it.
    Nintendo DS Storage devices
    Game Boy Advance Flashcarts
    Homebrew (video games)

    Yes, the first notice (orphans) isn't as important as the second (which is about the article's worth to exist in the first place).

    Just because YOU don't know anything about it doesn't mean it's not being discussed privately among them.

    Might want to get that cough checked out... and your eyes while you're at it.

    "a lot bigger than just a new skin."
    Meaning a new skin and more.

    A wiki page can be edited by anyone. So feel free to update it if you think that's needed.
