    I know I'm probably late for this and I don't know WHEN exactly it happened, but...


    I never would've guessed that it would be converted in such way...

    (probably having to do with Leo not wanting to pay for the enourmous server costs anymore
    - understandably)

    - I wish there was a way to get a full mirror of the gbatmw last state - I would love to keep that on my Harddrive as a memory.

    All we got is

    I'm truly saddend by this since this page was probably one of the first one's that got me into the whole GBA/DPG/etc scene.

    I loved it ! I didn't visit it as often as I visit is as often nowadays as I visit gbatemp (and even that is not as frequent as it used to be), howevr that site always had a special meaning to me.

    I salute to this site and bid it farewll with this topic.


    Also I encourage ppl that knew the site as well as I did (if not even much more)
    (Ender, Ruegore for example)

    A moment of silence :sleep:

    It wasn't the server costs. The forum software got buggy and glitchy and required a complete overhaul, and it was too much work for one person, and there was no point in going through all that trouble just for the five or six people that were still visiting the forum at that time. So it was decided to just move to Reddit.

    I miss you guys. :sleep:

    Can't say I ever really went there but it was a good site run by good people. I will join people in an appreciative nod.

    RIP GBATMW. I remember chatting on IRC with other members when that 15 year old "hacker" 0xyG3N took the site down. I have many fond memories of the year or so that I was part of the community.
