    I find shoptemp is "Site design by shaunj66" in the buttom of the pages in http://shoptemp.com/.
    And on http://gbatemp.net/index.php?dynamic=49 we will see

    I guess, Shoptemp is a new site of GBAtemp.

    you don't have to own a store to design it's theme...

    notice how this page credits JEX- as the designer yet he is not a gbatemp admin? [​IMG]

    ShopTemp is GBAtemps main affiliate. It is not owned by the GBAtemp Admins.

    mercluke is right. Yes I designed ShopTemp, but that does not mean that we own the shop or even run it. Does a design agency that creates a logo for a company take-over that company? Of course not.

    They are nothing more than an official recommend site and official partner.

    main difference with "official" is if one gets a bad rep then the other will too.
