    I've had an idea - what if we'll do an imageboard about Nintendo and their consoles?

    I think, it'd be cool, if it'll be possible for Nintendo fans to communicate using such an easy and comfortable way.

    A forum is just as easy and comfortable. Think of the bandwidth an imageboard would require.

    gbatemp gets really slow now and then (usually when people with no mind of their own go looking for a simple fix)...imagine how bad it would be with an imageboard! No thanks!

    I'm not talking about adding imageboard to gbatemp, I'm talking about a seperate project, and with an imageboard, it'd be really easy to start some small threads for some small purposes, without clogging forum.

    If you create your own server, fine, but don't call it MarioChan, but GBAChamp.net

    Asumming it's a really popular one, an imageboard would require one or two terabytes of bandwidth monthly. I'm pretty sure this board is "supposed to" handle such requests by now.

    Besides, this is not that different from it. Geez, I still don't get why hotlinking is even allowed.
