    You know. you can still use that skin but it's a bit different now. Just scroll down to the bottom of this page and you should see a drop down menu. Select GBAtemp Classic skin and there you go!

    It looks plain, but functional. That three column format persists to this day.

    WOW! I didn't know that Costello wasn't the original owner!

    EDIT: Would you believe it! On that day 46 users were active in the past 15 minutes and now the number has gone up to 2589!

    I've always wondered where the "Temp" in GBAtemp came from, hehe. Good little read, thanks TJ Cool!

    Oh man. I remember when the forums first opened in 2002. It has been quite a while. Just looking at the picture reminds me we used to have polls on the portal. Perhaps it's time to crack those out again?

    Daww... Reading the history for some reason was heart warming. I wonder what KiVan is doing now...

    And yes! Bring back the polls! [​IMG]
