How did GBAtemp get so big?
It has 12,000 members!
How did you get this far with this forum KiVan?
that's easy. this site used to have roms a long time ago =p anyway the site altready thad about a few thousand users then later it became like it is now. forum only . i guess it's word of mouth since they isn't alot of good rom sites out there now..
It still doesn't tell me how it got so big!
I have a forum with roms and it only has 91 members!
Where does GBAtemp advertise?
Its doesnt really advertize, people link it a bit on their sites, its in all the most popular search engines, and its just a great forum!
Come again ? i know a whole bunch of 'em. Send me a PM and i'll give you a few.
That and the fact that megaroms is always full, and gbaetc is dead. I myself am trying to make another channel to try and reilive some slack on you two channels. We're still setting up but feel free to visit me at #gba-today
I always thought it's because of the people, and KiVan keeps the people good usually. I mean look at what happened in the channel, it's a black, dark alley compared to the forum.
i think that the success of gbatemp is a result of the good community that enstablished here..
many helpful people, and almost every question gets answered here
it's a good source for every gba fan..
The BEST source of info on the latest videogames if you ask me, Kivan. I'm not surprised that GBATemp has become such a great forum at all.
i remember when GBAtemp was just 3 of the latest roms
you know i remeber KiVan from the GBXemu and stuff did you start this before you joined there or after there?
Yeah, I found your website because of the ROMs and then a week later they were gone. Then I read the forums for a while, and eventually joined.
did you ntice that like 3 - 4 pages in the memberlist are like Crap names like 435mkfdmfg just to like join and never come back?
yeah, this used to be the best place to get roms until it became too "popular" damn you newbie bastards! JK!
gbatemp has members that have stuck to the board and site and helped it grow. members came and stayed friends were made.
this is a great place to be and thats how it became so big.
kivan omero and everyone else has helped make this place what it is today without them this wouldnt be here. B)
And don't forget the Release Teams and Fserves. Without them...this would be just a desert full of ....(insert line here).
Hurry up and open that GBAtemp saves site
It's weird I still remember I found this site the first time. I found on a Chinese BBS, because all the sites I used to get roms from were getting shutdown.
At first it was cool because there were tons of new releases and it was in a language I could read . Then it got turned into a forum and I thought it was a guaranteed failure. But it work!! I'm glad it did too, becaue it would suck not having something to read while I'm at work.
PORN. The reason for success for anything is PORN. Also the fact that GBATemp is mentioned a lot on my page. We all know this place would be dead if it wasn't for my site!
I know it's because of all the good admins and moderators and people always willing to help each other out. GBATemp was the inspiration that got me to make my own crappy site. This place rules.
P.S. Porn WOULD make it better. J/K. Not really joking. I'm dead serious. J/K about being serious. J/K about J/K about being serious.
I'll just stop now.
