    I have a Suggestion:

    Since they are leechers in GBAtemp. We should make a quiz, any kind of quiz. And if they pass they could sign-up in GBATemp. So we can have less lechers in our forum.

    How do you leech a forum with no downloads? And anyone can sign up so, I'm lost.

    On what topic? I joined because I liked the community and I saw our Metroid Fusion help topic and wanted to lend a hand. I couldn't have told you the names of ANY release groups out there, for instance. Others joined for different reasons.

    "Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as..." is a phrase you may have heard. Diversity and tolerance is what we work on, it's our operating idea it seems. If we start screening, it will definitely trim the crowd in a way that may promote arrogance. ("Oh, he couldn't even tell us what group dumped Golden Sun! We must be better than him!")

    I admit we have a lot of zero-posters, but we also have zero roms. That means that these people cannot be "leechers" since they don't steal anything, and that all we can do is encourage them to post by providing them a place to do so in where they'll be accepted.

    No, a leecher is someone who downloads a bunch of stuff, but gives nothing back in return. Like someone downloading ROMs and then leaves. Doesn't heven stay to chat. Yes, I'm guilty of this occansinally.

    And for those who cause trouble, the admin can remove their accounting or ban their IP address, while the moderators can keep the disturbances to a minimum. I mean, that's our role, right?
