    Anyone else still around from the early days? I was only 18 years young then, seems like forever ago and yet I'm still a huge Nintendo fan. :)

    Most older members have already climbed to the top and are either really popular or staff members. Some of them will no doubt post here.
    I've only been here for 3 years, but this community feels really friendly. I come on here multiple times a day, and I would not be surprised if I was still active 10 years later.

    It seems you've already fulfilled one of GBAtemp's unspoken staff requirements: Be a hella old user.

    Hey, you're 2 years younger than me? I honestly expected you to be in your twenties.

    What many of you probably don’t know was gbatemp was a rom site for a little while before it went legit and became a forum!

    I only know that because reasons...:D haha
