    Probably because of all the traffic causing the server to lag.

    Why do you think? It's to deter people coming to this site just for Scribblenauts/Mario and Luigi/Kingdom Hearts/Pokemon. If it weren't like that, then chances are that GBAtemp would be down right now.

    i agree with demon, although it can be irritating, i spent ages trying to get on the day HG/SS was released, so this will help a great deal
