    ÂA few things...[​IMG] The first...

    We're going to be changing GBAtemp soon, so that anything past the portal won't be accessible to guests.
    This means that, to view release lists; browse the forum; read topics; use G-Online etc... you'll have to be registered and logged in.

    So if you're not registered at GBAtemp... Do it now! Join the community. [​IMG] You can continue to be a lurker if you like! [​IMG] You don't have to post, but of course it's better if you do!

    This is a fore-warning, the changes haven't taken place yet, but will very soon.

    [​IMG] The second...

    The "Coming Soon on GBAtemp" thing? [​IMG] Yep, you guessed it... We'll soon be holding the first Official GBAtemp Mario Kart DS Tournament!
    [​IMG]
    The tournament won't start to take place until a few weeks after the European release (Friday 25th Nov.) of Mario Kart DS. So you've got plenty of time to get your practice in! [​IMG]
    I hope you'll all participate! [​IMG] And yes... There will be a prize! [​IMG]

    The tournament will be open to both staff and members.

    Expect more details closer to the event here on the portal.

    [​IMG] And one last thing...

    A bit late to be telling you all now thanks to our eagle-eyed Kyoji! [​IMG] But during the lockdown of the board to registered members only, there may be a slight re-shuffle of the forum. Magazine News has already been pushed to the top.
    Two new forums have also been created, for Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection related discussions, so please make sure all Wi-Fi related chatter goes into it's rightful forum! That's all for now! [​IMG]

    Restricted forums always kinda bug me, but oh well. I'm registered here, so it really doesn't matter.

    Cool, very cool. I guess I was wrong about what the thing was. I thought it was a Mario Kart decal making contest.

    Whilst I'm excited at the prospect of playing in a MK tournament and playing against people when it has some meaning attached I'm wary as to how it will be organised and run. [​IMG]

    What will be the go regarding playing times and time zone differences?

    How will matches be organised so that only the people that are meant to play each other actually hook up together?
