    Exhibit A:
    [​IMG]

    I'll start from top to bottom.
    • Site Features Index: More about that in Exhibit B.
    • F.A.Qs.: "Sorry, the link that brought you to this page seems to be out of date or broken."
    • Podcast: It's missing 14 episodes.
    • RSS Feeds: It links to a topic and not the directly to the RSS Feed.
    Exhibit B:
    [​IMG]
    • GBAtemp Podcast (Tempcast): same beef.
    • Quizzes & Contests: Seems like it should link to a wiki page. I don't really know though.
    • Wi-Fi Nights: Links to a topic that has been dead since 2007 and isn't the official topic for the present one.

    Exhibit C:

    [​IMG]
    • Wiki Tutorial: 500 Internal Server Error
    • Glossary: Would be nice to see it updated.
    • Official List of flash card Dealers: Needs the addition of a few things like that recent shop that "GBAtemp Dissaproves"
    • Official Guide to FlashMe: Flashme is no longer needed (I'm pretty sure anyway)
    • Guide to DS Emulation Terms: To quote the topic: "THIS GUIDE IS NO LONGER UP TO DATE."
    GBAtemp Review Portal:


    This is something that really needs to be updated. The outed and out of service cards should be grouped as such. I bought a Ultra Flashpass because of GBAtemp's review for $60. That was in 2008, and it was still outdated then.


    There's probably some other dated stuff that's been bothering me, but this is all I can recall for now.

    Same thing for basically the whole FAQs and Guides section [​IMG]

    So it's just a matter of mods copying from the wiki and pasting it into those sections?

    Half those links should probably be removed (especially when they're not going to be updated on a regular basis).

    Yes, but the question is: will these ever be fixed or updated?

    Don't you think responding to those replies would have resulted in a potential solution being identified (sooner)?

    I was afraid I would get yelled at for being impatient, and now I'm afraid I'll get yelled at for necroposting. [​IMG]

    Anyways, I'll try to help identify the problem.
    This is the link to the supposed dual blue pips using the Lite/Classic skins. It just shows up as "Group Icon" without the quotes.
    Code:
    http://gbatemp.net/style_images/3/folder_team_icons/superpip2.gif
    If you click the link, it goes to a 404.

    In the V3 skin, where the blue pips work, the link is this:
    Code:
    http://gbatemp.net/style_images/2/folder_team_icons/superpip2.gif
    Notice the 3 and the 2. The 3 corresponds to the Lite skin, it has no gif of the blue pips in the folder. 1 corresponds to the Classic skin, which has the same problem. 2 is the V3 skin and it's the only skin that actually has the pips. I assume that's what's causing the problem. Now we just need an admin to fix this somehow.

    P.S. I love the Xzibit joke, Sonic. And grats on podcast crew!
