    n00bs are annoying newbies who don't read the rules.... newbs are just new people that read the rules and try to fit in the forums quite nicely and don't start any havoc.

    Man, Tjalian is just giving up more reasons to hate web speak.

    As for the disabling registrations to help clean things up a bit, goof news.

    What's with the "errr" before the "maintenance"?

    Heh...I dunno if that's such a wise idea. I mean, I ain't exactly one who likes "private" webpages or forums. Basically, I think this is a stupid idea, as everyone deserves an equal chance.

    Mind you, I have no say in the matter, as I "left" this forum about a month ago, due to idiocy of every other person.

    Happy trails.

    Hmmm, lets see...

    * Close registrations for a few days, maybe a week to fix some annoying bugs in the forum.

    OR

    * Leave registrations open and listen to everyone bitch and moan when the bugs in the system get worse and worse.

    Thats a really tough choice.

    By the way, if you left, why are you still here, and why bother formulating an opinion?

    Lol did you even read this?

    It's (gba)temporary, the site's undergoing some changes I think so they closed registeration, and Tempest also pointed out that registeration will be open again after 2 weeks max.

    Whoa so much speculation about some DB maintenance...let me introduce a word related to maintenance: "backup" like backuping the users' DB (or any other part of the DB) in case of a crash. I guess the "errr" in the anounce is/was because doing backups often implies complications.

    It's pretty sad that people talks abot newbies as they were nocive to the forums ^^; c'mon, it's just ignoring the ones who waks only for the roms XD

    But still, it could be nice to do some clean up on the 0-posters or "1 post asking for roms" users [​IMG]

    Just go already. Don't even bother checking up on the place. You're idiotic for saying that the place is idiotic and drawing attention to yourself. So just leave, most of us think there is nothing wrong with this place. It's just people like you who stir up trouble.

    I like gbatemp enough to visit it daily XD. Don't post a lot but I like the different opinions members have about certain issues. So... I don;t exactly know what you mean by idiocy since I haven';t noticed anyone being a idiot but you Legend.

    Thank you shady_chocobo, it's people like you that make it worth putting in the effort to try and make gbatemp a great place.
    Perhaps some of you don't realise the amount of work that some people put in to make a place like this run, the amount of time, commitment and money. Don't just sit there and take it all for granted, many people have sacrificed a lot to attempt to make gbatemp a better place. When a forum like this has been operational for 3+ years it's quite a strain to actually keep it going and improving it.

    So please dont bitch like some of you have about registrations being closed for a week or two (a minor inconvenience), because some people are putting in effort behind the scenes to get gbatemp running smoother for you the members.
