    I have a wondering mind. How or Why did you join GBAtemp.net? Did you find it accidentally? Did a friend tell you about this site? I found this site from a couple of searches about NDS homebrew.

    I found GBAtemp by searching for flashcart reviews. I only joined at the time because some of the reviews were only accessible by members.

    Same. Now the sites flooded with newbs and they barely post any proper news anymore. Ah how the times have changed.

    I joined because, like most, looking for flashcart advice. Around that time, a large majority of people, swore by R4. Back then, at least.

    If I can recall, in 2007 my friends were talking about how one of them got this new fangled device named a "R4". So, being a confused person at the time, did a google search. Then it eventually led to GBAtemp and the review it had on the R4. Hooray.

    From what I've always been told, I narrowly missed the temp breakdown during LoZ:PH. Since I lurked for a while until I registered to ask the question I asked in my first post ever.

    I used to think that a flashcart simple enough for any idiot to use was a good thing. It never occurred to me at the time that the R4 would force the universe to build a better idiot.

    Well it comes with the advancements in stuff like that, I suppose. I still don't see why it's "shitty" now. Mine, that I never use now, still plays the games I want. That's good enough for me.

    I've told my story many times already, but I came here back when Metroid Zero Mission was released, and I was looking for the ROM and I found this site via a search engine. Though GBAtemp didn't have the ROM, I decided to stay because of the community.

    I joined because I felt like it. Maybe I could help some people or do whatever. Never had a problem with my R4 and never had a problem with my M3. If I did have a problem, I'd search for it, but I've done enough research to know what kinds of problems I may run into.

    Now as for how I heard about GBATemp, I was a curious boy that always watched my brother browse the web and he was looking for an GBA flashcart over about 4 years ago. Though, I didn't join until like 2 years ago though.

    Right before the DS lite was launched, I joined to try and find info about stores selling them early. My fist post and topic was about finding some, and being overly excited/weird.

    I joined when I found the site while researching GBA flashcarts. Back when the Flash2Advance was popular, which is what I ended up with.

    tepples of gbadev.org spoke negatively of it due to it condoning piracy or something, so I headed on over to check it out and made an account same day.
