    i think and suggest adding a printable version features for the posts, messages and reviews etc.... there are many times we need not to be in front of a computer yet need to know whats going on with GBAtemp...

    i sometimes find myself sleepy and my eyes becoming drowsy and hurt due to a prolonged exposure to the monitor {and i doubt a screen protector can help}, and were always reminded to relax after long hours of exposure. i think it might be better if we are able to print the text without much hassle like copy-paste it to Word and edit {take all other unnecessary things} it {it would take a lot of time}.

    even now, after years of having a computer, i find it weary of sitting all day with limited actions especially when you read long articles {the FORUM RULES for example}. unless your monitor is very thin and like a DS or PSP, you cannot move around.

    besides, i cant think of any disadvantages when that feature is available.

    If you click 'Lo-Fi Version' at the bottom of any page, it will give you a text based version of the page you're on. Which is much better suited for printing.

    Or, click the 'Options' button at the bottom of a page and click 'Download / Print this Topic' and you'll be able to choose from a variety of different versions to choose from, even one in Microsoft Word format.

    Of course, you can do this to our reviews, and almost any page at GBAtemp. [​IMG]
