    A little bird told me..
    (I'm making this stuff up)
    They're straight out getting rid of the testing area, that is, they're establishing a board for testing IPB code and sigs and whatnot, but it won't bump the site's top news.


    Totally made up by me just now

    I hope so. It never made much since for the testing area to be anything but a testing area. Moreover, why it ever bumped the front page is simply beyond my understanding.

    *BUMP* "testing my sig" *BUMP*

    Sarcasm and joking aside, Testing Area shouldn't be in the Latest Discussion anyway.
    All it promotes is new members getting the idea that they could act like idiots to "be cool", a BoneMonkey mentality so to speak.
    What we need to show potential new members is that this is a fun but also serious community.

    I'm fully supporting the idea that the Testing Area be closed or at least not put into the Latest Discussion box.

    There are other places in the internet to join if you wanted to be retarded anyway.

    You're naive to think taking away the testing area would take the dumb out of GBAtemp.

    Aye.
    I haven't posted much stupid shit outside of Testing Area.
    Getting rid of TA from the Latest Discussions box could be good for the community...
    To get rid of it altogether?
    Even better.

    Groupthink

    It's impossible to take the "dumb" out of any grouping of people, but it is possible to rethink what "dumb" actually means.
