    Hi all.
    Great forum. Keep up the great work.

    I only wish that the comments in the posts where games(gbatemp magazine) are posted were more constructive...mostly people write down all hypothetical stuff related to the game before even trying it.. . Of course people are free of their own opinions... well it would be a good stance to have constructive reviews of the games released... i..e to try it then write about it.. else we keep surfing through tons of pages of one liners bearing no help / ideas towards a game.
    Im sure this practice would greatly enhance the quality of the forums gbatemp mag section..
    Thks and take care

    We are aware that people are just kinda spaming when they post for a new release. Something like "w00t first comment!!!!!!111"
    I guess you should jsut ignore it [​IMG] I don't see much of a way to inforce people to make more constructive posts. Usually look at the comments for a game on the 2nd page of a topic because people ahve usually played the game by then and they give their opinions.

    he would probably have more luck looking in the reviews section but then again there hasnt been to many new reviews come threw for a while. When u do look at the second page it only has like 5 word comments about the game but theres no rule yet sayin how you have to pos and maybe it should stay that way, this isnt a concentration camp or anything its a forum.

    I already made a topic about this. I don't know what's happening though, but I'm sure there's something in the works. [​IMG]

    I think that post count should be removed, then all the n00bs and that would not want to spam!

    I agree that those posts should be removed but if you deleted them:
    how can those n00bs know that those posts are deleted?

    well, basically as i see it, the threads are only to praise or flame.

    i've never been looking for a review on a game, cause i rather play it than read about it...
    by the time i've read the review, i've already downloaded the game, and imo i am best at deciding wich games i think are funny. what others have to say about it really doesn't change anything

    Yeah, don't put "first post" in your comments, even if you have something constructive to say. I wrote "first post" along with a good amount of info on the game and my comment was deleted simply for saying first post. Anyway, hopefully this comment is not deleted for having the phrase "first post" in it, but I fear it might...

    I agree with Cruddybuddy here. Don't put references to "woo, first post" or, for that matter, the fact that you're posting in the thread at all in the post.

    If no one says anything about "yeah, second!" or something, most people will no longer get the impression that it's a race.

    Yay! I got 17th post [​IMG]. Yeah, something needs to been done about spam, espically on my part. I am conserding making a thread just to flame killaroms in. That way, i can just reference the thread when there is a need to flame him. [​IMG]
