    Hello, they say you took out old topics to speed up the site, please make an option to put them back because I have fast internet and I don't mind if it take 1hr to load, but I want to see the old NDS release topics to see if the game discussion, is it any good, etc.

    If you can't add this option can you at least add back the old topics in the releases section? Magazine news or whatever section, please.

    1) It may not be that simply to make such feature
    2) Restoring them could slow down the site for everyone, even without the function activated (Due server load)
    3) They are not going to do it just for you

    But you can always try, I guess

    Big chunk of GBAtemp cultural history was locked up in those old topics. [​IMG]

    I don't think they can because once you delete something its gone.

    If it was deleted wouldn't it just say no topic?

    It wasn't deleted, its just not there any more. It'll be back eventually once the slowdowns/server load issue is fixed (IPB SUCKS)
