    Hi, long time lurker, first time poster. I've been gaming since the Spectrum 128k and CPC464 but have only been in the console scene since the N64 and GBC days, having a v64jr and Doctor GB and it's gone from there.

    I've been checking GBATemp for the news for a while now, but shamefully I've only just registered so I can carry on checking GBATemp's news (although I am likely to contribute now as I have an account at hand), which brings me onto the next point - I'm curious, why the enforced registration? To stop the other lurkers accidentally DDoSing the site by F5-ing to check for SSBB?

    (edit) Site bug: when I registered, after entering the user, pass, email, verification and after clicking through I went to a blank page. I tried going back and enabling JavaScript (NoScript user) which made no difference. Looks like my account was created anyway [​IMG]

    Over there.
    Welcome to the Temp. Don't spam and flame. Hope that we won't be crushed by the flood of people when SSBB is released. Anyways, welcome again! [​IMG]
