    Site index for newcomers
    Most of our features listed on one page
    With the birth of new features such as the blogs and the picture upload service, we've noticed that it has become increasingly difficult to find your way around the GBAtemp network.

    In order for newcomers not to get lost, and not to miss any of the features that we've made available, we've decided to put up a page listing all the possibilities that we offer, either through existing forum pages (personal messenger, site portal, search page and so on) or the new additions that have been brought to the board during all these 6 years of existence (eg. GBAtemp mobile, RSS feeds, Wiki...). We've also highlighted our featured content from the forums: the "Essential" games list, Hadrian's "Releases of the week" topics, tutorials, reviews...

    There certainly is a lot to discover, or to rediscover!

    Great idea, makes browsing through the loads of features much easier.

    I never realized we had such a large amount of features.

    Thanks but the majority are open domain graphics, just tweaked a little.

    Hope you guys find the site index useful. It's good to see everything in one place. Should be helpful to newcomers!

    Very nice. It's amazing how much stuff is actually on here. Took me a while to find the link (having a blonde moment, don't mind me). [​IMG]

    Wow. This is a surprisingly good update.

    This IMO is like a "second front page"

    Like a much "cleaner" version of the front page.
    (This doesn't mean i dun like the front page)

    I approve.

    Now all it needs is to have its own link in the Nav Bar at the top of the screen. Or perhaps the index alone can replace that ever-growing bar. (I never noticed the "Reviews" button up there. I found out about it when i got it messed up with "Releases" which iirc used to be called gOnline, right?)

    the site needs a facelift. it's too cluttered. it looks like yahoo.com's front page... how about tidying up and rather than having a site guide you bring a better menu with those features more at the first glance?
