    Yup, same here. Nothing much we can do, making a new topic won't speed things up.

    Those sites have adverts and stuff, so they can pay for it.
    The Admins here want to keep it advert-free

    also this site is heavily customized: Downloads, Wiki, gOnline, ...
    Those all take space on the server

    Just because of HGSS. You can wait till spring 2010 and GBAtemp will be normal again. [​IMG] I still DO love HGSS though.

    feel free to donate some of those big monies you're talkin.

    but yeah, the site has definitely gotten laggier and less reliable for me too ='(

    Wrong...Maybe after that or Winter 2009.

    Why is it wrong? Expect the following:

    "My HG/SS (J) save file is not working. HALP!
    "HG/SS (U) ROM doesn't work on my R4/DSTT/AK/whatever"
    "I can't get past the moving tree. It moves when I talk to it. HALP!"
    "When is the English HGSS Pokesav coming?"
    "My brother released my EV trained Rattata but I found a shiny one in my box. Should I punish him?"
    "OMG Taylor Swift plays Pokemon. OMGOMGOMG"

    Then it's gonna be armageddon again...

    I was going to suggest using the low bandwidth version but it appears to have stopped working today. Hm.

    This. GBAtemp is ad-free, and I prefer having noobfloods of a few days than having tons of pop-ups saying 'Ya need a penis? Go here!' or 'Click here to play sexy slut game'. I've got other sites for that.
