If you have followed recent events in the ShopTemp Forums, you have already heard of the news: ShopTemp has been ordered to stop selling flashcarts. As you can imagine flashcarts represented most of the income on ShopTemp; consequently there wasn't going to be enough orders to maintain the shop in its current state. A joint decision has been taken by the managers to close ShopTemp for the time being. As we have stated before, ShopTemp was run by individuals who are not connected to the GBAtemp staff. The death of ShopTemp will thus not affect GBAtemp in its whole, aside from the loss of a certain financial comfort that ShopTemp provided to GBAtemp through this partnership. We remain the same and our server costs are temporarily financed by Google Adsense adverts once again (visible for guests only). This comes with a price though: we will not be able to hold a Tempmas 2010 like we planned. Well, we could, but there wouldn't be prizes so we figure it wouldn't be the same anymore. While ShopTemp was not our own site (like GBAtemp or FileTrip) we feel that it had somehow become an important part of the GBAtemp Network. As such we have requested the ShopTemp staff to keep the domain and organize a new version of the website. We already have something planned for it, plans that will involve the community and that will benefit everyone. We will of course keep you informed of the evolution of our projects. The ShopTemp staff would like to thank everyone who trusted them over the past few months. They would also like to confirm that all orders that were paid for will be duly shipped, so there is no need to worry or to claim a refund. Customers who have store credit can spend it on ShopTemp before December 31st. Unfortunately the credit cannot be withdrawn as the PayPal accounts have been suspended and the cash frozen undefinitely. So long, ShopTemp!
