    Why not add a feature that searches a post or reply for certain keywords like "R4" and "GBA" in the same post and search the forum and display the results if any before the post has been made so people will stop posting the same questions without searching.

    Or add more facts that you need to repeat on registering

    "The R4/M3, or any other slot-1 card, cannot play GBA games. You need a slot 2 card (link to gbatemp wiki article)"

    That should be automatically displayed after your first post because the first post was probably HOW DUS YA PLAY GBA ON R4?

    I think maybe a week, three days, some such waiting period before you can post i.e. like the Nintendo boards, would bore out people who don't care enough to wait to make a thread, or inspire people to find what they need without asking.

    That, or they'll leave, come back, and make a thread.

    so i hav G4 on mah tv but i read u need G6 to play n64ds roms so can i only play snesgba roms?????

    Really IainDS, that's some serious IPB work you're talking here. Having to read the stickies or rules shouldn't be too much to expect from new members. Also the practice of "lurking" which I see a lot of members do effectively. Aside from avoiding confrontation, lurking can be a great way to get the info you want on a lot of message boards, and I'm glad that a good portion of GBAtemp does this, even though they don't stand out as much of the newbs/noobs.

    Sorry, but it's a bad idea. The chance of the keyword combinations appearing in a legit post are too high, I know it'd drive me nuts having an extra window to go through to post anything.

    How can you say that? Fool.
    AND, correct your spelling.

    It's seriousness not seriosuness. [​IMG]

    How can you say that? Idiot.
    AND, don't be a douche.

    It's a typo, not a grammatical error.

    Aren't you the one who brought it up? Seriously, why do people blame OUR educational system? Most of the idiotic comments here come from Brits.

    You started it off by calling me an idiot with your little crayon remark.

    Also, none of my comments have been idiotic, and our education is far better than yours which is why half your country are idiots, look at your president.

    Seriously now, One of your "advanced member" put me down for no reason.

    Maybe egos shouldn't be tolerated?
