    [​IMG] Happy New Year 2005 [​IMG]
    from GBAtemp.net[/p]

    So, another year has gone by! Where did that one go?! Anyway, GBAtemp is still standing strong, with even more members than ever before - even though we did lose some too. There have been quite a lot of important and not-so important events in the last year, but I'm sure 2005 will bring even better times - and with GBAtemp.net I can guarantee that! [​IMG] There will be quite a few changes next year, so don't you go anywhere!

    From all the staff and me personally, we wish you a very Happy New Year 2005!

    Here's a new year gift from us...

    [​IMG][/p]

    We're happy to bring you the very first GBAtemp.net competition... the first that is; with a material prize! What's the prize?
    The prize for one lucky winner is one brand new X-ROM 512Mbit Linker Kit!

    Big thanks go out to our friends at easybuy2000.com - home of the X-ROM, for supplying the prize! easybuy2000.com are also currently developing a new generation of the X-ROM linkers with 1Gbit of space and lots of new features!

    So, the competition unlike most competitions here, doesn't require any specific skill except for knowledge! It's a simple 10 question quiz that ALL MEMBERS are free to enter, but ONLY ONCE. Did you wonder why we closed new registrations? Members cannot register more than once and enter! The questions are all GBAtemp and GBA related, so some of you "n00bies" might have trouble!

    The competition will be open for ONE WEEK only, so don't hesitate to enter! The deadline for entries is Friday 7th January at midnight (GMT) and one lucky winner (randomly selected from all the entries with correct (and nearest to correct) answers!) will be announced on the Saturday or Sunday.

    New Year Competition Rules and Terms and Conditions
    • Open to members WORLD-WIDE,
    • Only one entry per member,
    • Closing date for entries is Friday 7th January 2005 at midnight GMT,
    • Staff CANNOT enter (excluding Support Crew!),
    • You MUST answer ALL the questions,
    • Members caught posting answers in ANY topic, or through the PM system will be banned from the competition and possibly suspended,
    • The selected winner will be allowed to "donate" the prize to another member or address if they don't wish to receive the X-ROM theirself,
    • Your answers are not case-sensitive,
    • Winner is selected at random by Admins,
    • The staff's decision is FINAL,
    • No cash alternative (haha),
    • Your details will remain private and will only be used to deliver the prize, they will NOT be sold or made public in any way,
