    Yes indeed Tempers it is that time of year again when old war horses retire and go out to stud and a new generation of mods take up the fight in their place.
    Firstly the sad part as some of the greatest ever staff members to grace the site take a well deserved break into the Former Staff group. Not gone by any means and certainly never forgotten we thank our beloved mthrnite, Toni Plutonij and Vulpes Abnocto for their service over the years and wish them all the best with their future endeavours.​
    On a happier note it is with much joy that I present to you our new Chief Editor T-hug who will be whipping our fresh new team of Reporters into shape while making competing news sites tremble with fear.​
    And lastly it is with great pleasure that I bring to you the newest additions to our Moderating team. Long term member the always popular BortzANATOR and all round good guy Sicklyboy will be taking up the thankless role of Moderators and will hopefully make GBAtemp an even better community to be a part of.​
    Thanks everyone and good luck to the new guys as yet another chapter in GBAtemp history is written! :bortz:

    Hey hey, congratulations to Sicklyboy and BortzANATOR on their new staff positions, and to the retiring staff, thank you for all of the wonderful times over the past several years. As far as T-hug, I really look forward to working with you! :)

    In other news I noticed the reviewer position has completely vanished! :O

    Congrats to everyone, as well as all the new reporters.
    I myself have been around the block and covered every position available on the forum at the some point or other, even retiring my admin status back on New Year's Eve 2008.

    I'm looking forward to the future and to GBAtemp growing even more popular to become a mainline tech forum. What differentiates us from other gaming forums is FREEDOM OF SPEECH! Sure we mod trolls and unnecessary flames, but that comes with the territory.

    Thanks again to everyone who makes this site such a pleasure.

    You'll probably see all posts edited by Bortz as "Bortz was here, know your place! :bortz:"

    Well the departure of those 3 guys really marks a sad point in the GBAtemp history, and changes the face of the site even more. People come and go, it's still hard to live with it :'(

    Thanks for everything they've done for GBAtemp, thanks a ton
