    How about it... i know theres a GBA (Duh) place to talk about the favorite games and things like that but what about games like PC and Xbox where you can post tip and tricks..... maybe a non-posting count like the testing area eh?

    Better idea, let's change the board name to Gametemp and stop favoring one handheld console and become the biggest gaming board on the web, in a few years the GBA will be gone replaced with this another handheld and what then ??

    I think we should split new releases and games, because, say I want to check up on a thread I made about a new release, and then all I see on page one are "So what's your favourite pokémon?" threads and stuff.

    Thatw ay you can have one forum for talking about games, and game help, and another for talking about games that have just been released, according to this site, or games that will be released.

    Then again, it's just a suggestion. It's not really that important to me. I just think it'd be more efficient.

    Actually I was serious, how long will a forum last when it's focus is on something that will be replaced?

    I would guess that it would naturally follow to the next Nintendo handheld...don't really know for sure. It is a good point.

    hopefully we will move on when the time comes but i wouldnt like to see the name change because it just would not seem right (just be being sentimental i guess)

    On temporary hiatus.
    Our community's diverse enough that it'll still keep going after the replacement. I don't know how, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

    The name's not an issue -- we're no longer "temporarily" distributing roms, yet the Temp is stuck with us, ain't it?

    Sometimes a name is something more than the literal. I would definitely agree with that.
