    We're always working behind the scenes every day at GBAtemp to make this community one of the best and largest independent gaming communities on the web and we intend to keep working to provide the community you love.

    Just less than a week ago we launched one of our most ambitious additions to the site ever - the GBAtemp Game Center. However, in order to make these things happen and to be able to keep providing you with fresh editorial content and in order to conserve our freedom as an independent community, free from the reigns of a parent media conglomerate and to also pay for soaring bandwidth and server costs; we need your help.

    • Complete ad-free access on desktop and mobile ($5 tier and up)
    • Early access to new site features
    • Early access to new site skins (tempStyles)
    • Regular Patreon raffles

    • A customisable banner that adorns your posts and profile
    • A listing on the Patreon member page
    • That feeling that your supporting one of the longest running independent communities on the web - OVER 17 YEARS STRONG!

    Gee Tempstyle 3 is on the way and I'm still waiting on the tempstyle 2 theme for dyslexic people like myself that was promised in the early days of tempstyle 2.

    Temp staff please don't forget about us this time.

    Wait, I’m almost certain there’s a dyslexic font option in the preferences tab :unsure: have you checked that?

    There is and it helps a bit but black or white background does not really help. What would is a nice pastel background.

    Research suggests that pastel backgrounds, increased line-spacing, font choice and paragraph justification all work together to make it easier for dyslexics to read.

    I'm keen to improve our dyslexic friendly options and will endeavour to add more options in the future. I've been on a couple courses at my job related to this field and have a few ideas. If you have any other thoughts I'd love to hear them in a private message with you.

    Thanks @shaunj66 if I think of anything else I will be in touch. But really all it would take is the current dyslexic font with tempstyle 2/3 that has a pastel background it would make a world of a difference.

    Honestly the banner alone is worth it. Look at that bad boy. I just switched over to TempStyle 3 and it's looking pretty snazzy. I can't wait for a dark/black version.

    This site takes payments, what about people who bring traffic, such as cheat codes.

    I agree a site has costs, but when people bring you traffic from their spare time.
