    A few users overstayed their welcome, but in the end, the site only hosts them for so long til they get their deserved boot to the face.

    This site helped me overcome shitty people from my past by making actual friends here. Stay classy GBATemp.

    Been here a long time and while there are still a couple of veteran regulars I can't stand for the most part things did improve at least going back a few years. Not sure what changed, stronger moderation or just some of the more testy veterans semi-retiring from the forums but it's definitely better. At least for the most part now you can isolate the assholes on this forum to a handful of people and a whole lot of obvious trolls or children.

    I actually remember the only time I ever met someone else in real life who'd heard about the temp he said he tried asking questions and got absolutely buried by shitty responses and never came back. He was a pretty damn nice dude too so I'm glad at least the community now doesn't seem to be so toxic against newbies anymore. I remember this site used to be really exclusionary. People acting elitist over homebrew and piracy, what a joke.

    Meh, I personally say that all places are equally toxic and good but people will have different viewpoints because of what they see, how they react, and taking into other viewpoints to validate their own but I will admit that GBATemp has grabbed me by the britches and isn't letting go anytime soon...

    Gbatemp has the perfect amount of assholes. Not too many that you can't avoid them, but enough to have a nice spectation of assholery every now and then.

    I've only been here for a short time contrasted to others on here, but I am delightfully surprised with these forums and the community here. I've been involved with some other forums, and spent waaaaay too long at one forum (from 2000-2013 or so before I finally headed out), and GBATemp has managed to last a long time. Considering it has both off-topic and on-topic forums, and the forum has great activity, relevancy, good balance and passionate effort, I am just downright peachy with this place, even if I sometimes have droughts with my posts.

    Keep it alive and real, guys~

    Sadly, we lost one of the nicest and most active contributors of pretty much all time at some point last year. In fact, I dont even think I need to tell you their name, they was just that beloved to all of us.
