    I think there should be a new forum about online sites that sell backup devices; recommendations, questions to ask, etc.

    I think it'd be pretty helpful considering there are probably a lot of people looking for good places to buy from.

    Doesn't need a whole forum really. There used to be a list; this question's com up before although I've forgotten the answer. Maybe something to do with ditching it in favour of having a site sponsor? (Don't get me wrong I'm not saying a site sponsor is a bad thing, the benefits outweigh the downside but that might be the explaination. Maybe. I forget.)

    having a site sponsor has nothing to do with it. We're do not provide biased views regardless.

    A whole new forum section sounds like a bit much but perhaps a reinvention of a list of sellers would be a good thing to do. One of the staff members could create a new topic with a list of different sellers and a quick blurb on how reliable they are and how good their customer service is.

    Members could reply to the topic with other sites to add to the list and a quick description of their impressions of the site, which would be added to the list.

    Does that sound like a feasible solution?

    Sounds like a good alternative Opium.

    Yeah, I started thinking about it and a new forum does seem like kind of a waste of space, I'm sure a topic would do much better.

    If people would start using the search button, then there would be 80% less problems...

    Awesome! Suggestions really do make a difference here, unlike on some forums. GBAtemp FTW!!!
