    It's the GBA!... I understand, this site is GBAtemp.net but, I just don't think there WILL be anymore scene releases for the GBA besides homebrews. If there is any way for the admin to remove the GBA scene releases tab for the Scene Releases section of this sites homepage, I would feel a little bit better. Either that or replace the GBA scene releases with something like the PC or something! This is just a suggestion since I know that nobody ever releases GBA roms anymore! So yeah! A deletion or replacement of that tab is something I would like!

    To be fair it does seem a little pointless.

    Yeah! I should also add that the .NFO viewer displays nothing when you click "view NFO"

    release list, scene release group, nfo, etc.
    They are all done to preserve history of what happened.

    Why does it bother you that we keep it for historical purpose?
    if you don't want to see it, don't go there.

    It might be useful for other users, don't decide for them.


    You are looking for something, save format, save file, release name, etc.
    It's there! (except nfo for GBA and DS :/)


    Edit:
    And it's never "expired".
    There are website specialized in those informations, for all consoles, old or older!
    nforush.net
    advanscene.com
    ludibria.com
    datomatic.no-intro.org
    etc.
    to name only a few

    I disagree with the lowest amount of respect.

    Just pretend they don't exist and move on with your life.

    EDIT:
    What Cyan said :P

    Well, I do respect retro gamers and all. Infact, one of my friends loves playing retro titles! If the GBA part is just for nostalgia of what this site used to be and what it hosted. I'm fine! It's just that I had no idea why it was there in the first place anyway!

    EDIT: No, I can't use newbieness as an excuse anymore!

    Guys, he's just talking about removing the tab/feed on the homepage, not removing the actual posts/forum/data.

    The tab/feed on the homepage is a reservation for new data, but there's no new data, so it's a waste of space.

    I understand, but it's not like we need to use it for something else, and we can add more tabs, there are still spaces.
    The releases box is just displaying the lists we have, old or new.

    if it's really bad to have GBA on the portal, we can hide the tab. There are still a link to "newgon" website on the Site index where users can find GBA/DS/Wii releases.

    If we were short in spaces, it could be replaced by 3DS scene release, but we didn't start a list yet.
    Other consoles are sometime posted as a simple topic (for example in the Xbox forum), but not all games are posted (PSP have only 60 releases!), and they would require a layout change to fit on the portal.
    There's no one maintaining a list for other consoles.

    A release list for PC? Wouldn't it be too much work? I imagine there are too much releases to follow them all.
    what game would you include in the list? and you will start it from which date?

    We are more a console's forum than a computer's gaming forum, I think it's better to keep only console's tabs on the releases box.

    You got a point there! Although, if there was a PC release list, I would like to see a CoD game or something like that!
