    As stated by the title, i think sum short of minimum (mebe a 100 posts?) should be required to dl anything so we don't get a surge of ppl joining just to dl sumthing (in this case, the wii loader thingy), and just leave. this causes problems to dedicated members and it isn't fair. unless all staff cares about is getting the max # of hits as possible?

    btw this is response to the latest topics and shoutbox having to be disabled. this is ridiculous.

    then the 100 posts required will come to threads and posts being spammed then they'll leave after they have what they wanted

    He's right. And no, we can't do that, for reasons.

    hmm tru...how about at least a month being here? (in addition to the 100 post thing)

    though now that i think about it...other sites will get the file eventually, and if gbatemp needs the hits (for funding reasons), then i guess there's no real solution...o wellz

    that might work or if you really wanna screw with them make it so that any new members need 3 months before they can download
