    As you have noticed I have forged reviews from other areas of the web claiming it was mine.

    All I can say is I am deeply sorry for what I have done, the reason for my actions where such that I want'ed to make a BIG impression of myself in the reviewing skills category. Although this is no excuse for what i have done.

    I will accept FULL responcibility for my actions and take ANY punishment which is given to me, even if it includes to be removed from the magazine staff or even for the forum.

    I would acctually thank shingyau for reaveling my forgary, as it had made me realise how much of a fool i am.

    I especially apologise to KiVan and Alexander for what I have done, I am aware I may have damaged the Forum's high built reputation.

    Again I cannot exspess the fact that I want to truly appologise for everything which I have done.

    As i said, I will be willing to accept any action of punishment drown to me, as I deserve it. [​IMG]

    I also plan to apologise to the true authors of the reviews, I should have known better not to carry out an action so awfull as this.

    At least you have apologised and not just disappeared, that’s the main thing. [​IMG]

    Does it count as owning up if you do it after you get busted?

    I do have to give him that, He did own up to it, but I will say this.

    This pretty much applies to everyone as well

    You are a member of GBATEMP most important for you T.J you are part of the mag, what you do isnt just bad on you, it also effects GBAtemp. KiVan and all the others have worked hard to give GBAtemp a good reputation. And not only do you hurt GBAtemp, you also hurt everyone else that is apart of this group..

    In all honestly its not us you need to be apologizing to, Its KiVan, and Alexander who trusted you.

    Don't thank me, I didn't feel good writing those posts. To an extent I understand where you're coming from - there was a lot of pressure on you to do well from the others here. Remember that proof of your character comes from the way you react to pressure. To use a footballing analogy, be a David Beckham, not a Mark Bosnich [​IMG]

    I totally disagree with you, GBAtemp is not like other forums, and the people here, dont rush you, we dont expect you to be perfect. Only thing we ask and expect. Is if you are going to be mature, and HONEST. We dont care about, how well something is done. Most of us anyway.. I mean right now I am starting to do some FAQ's most people want them and I figured it would be fun to do, But I am not going to copy someone elses work. I will work at my own pace. and get it done on my own. People here wont care if I type crappy, or if i spell stuff wrong, as long as they can ready it. and they understand it, Thats all they care about.

    I spoke as KiVan the guy, not the Admin, i know that happens to everyone to make mistakes we are all human, the important thing is to LEARN from own mistakes and grow to be a better person.

    I shall forgive you without no dubts and pray you learn from this error, and be a better reviewer i know you have the qualities just use them!

    And everyone don't point the finger on him, i think he mad a great effort to make this un-easy post.

    I don't see the honour of GBATemp decreased, we are a young website but we are trying to do our best to give people everything we can, and we may do errors too, but this will be a lesson to everyone ... so we will be better tomorrow [​IMG]

    Come on TJ don't worry .. ok?

    well.....I don't know what to say....I did'nt exspect the responce to be so...so....positive.

    Thank You, Thank you guys for forgiving me. I now this will NEVER NEVER accour again.

    I am exstremely proud to be a member of this community, and as a higher status than other members I should have been loyal and setting an example to newer memders.

    I hope this has not effected the Forum in anyway, again thank you for you forgivness.

    **edit**
    Sigfriend thats where I became very worried and I was thinking of leaving the forum, without any notice.
    I will try to build up the trust which I gained with the members of this forum.

    I understand some people will be disgusted of my actions. If only I could turn back time.....

    No no you are taking me all wrong, He made a mistake. Its forgivable like KiVan said. My response just means. You represent GBAtemp. So when ever you go and post on another forum. Remember what you say also reflects on yourself and us.

    But I agree though GBAtemp hasnt decreased any.. But, an example:
    You owned up to something. ok? Well than you went and done it again and again and again and again. That will end up looking bad.

    T J, you are a good person, I can understand that you wanted to make a good impression in the magazine, and that this seemed like a good way to do it.

    I think it took a lot of courage to create this public apology, and I appreciate it.
    I forgive you! [​IMG]

    I'm sure you could of made excellent reviews of games you have played if you tried, and I look forward to reading any reviews you have to make in the future.

    T.J. we're all humans, we learn from our mistakes, so I agree with KiVan.
    You made an error, you were couragous enough to tell you made it, not everyone is capable of this.
    So keep working, and don't lost your courage...
