    I'm suggesting that GBAtemp.net has there own online store. GBAtemp could sell official merchandise (T-Shirts with GBAtemp mascot, etc.), ModChips (for Wii), Flashcarts, etc. I mean why not? Would it be stupid to because of many other flashcart dealers on the web? And would GBAtemp be in danger of legal issues? I'd definately buy from the store. Discuss please...

    I say we leave it as a gamer's community.

    Even if GBAtemp were to open an online store, I couldn't see them selling things like flash cards or modchips. I can see things like GBAtemp-original products (GBAtemp shirts, pens, mugs, etc).

    I agree with the cafepress kinda things, but modchips/flashcarts is a no in my book.

    I seriously doubt we will be opening an online store. I do however want GBAtemp merchandise as much as the next person, although I don't think it'll happen.

    We prefer not to deal with money and people as customers. This is just a community. If you want a GBAtemp t-shirt we could perhaps make a t-shirt design then you can go out and get it printed on a shirt yourself etc.

    He means that GBAtemp gets paid for by shops that would stop paying if gbatemp had their own
