So every time I log onto this website to see what's new in the Nintendo world, 90% of the topics I see are 3ds related. I personally do not own a 3ds and do not want to see 3ds related topics. So I suggest renaming this site to 3dstemp or adding some kind of function to disable certain sub forums from appearing in my feed.

On a note about the name:

The name GBAtemp itself comes from the site's origin as a temporary GBA ROM sharing site. They'd only have a handful of releases, always the most recent, and anything older would not be hosted on the site. Thus, the name GBAtemp was highly relevant. These days the name has stuck around through the height of the DS scene and into the height of the 3DS scene because the name is the site's legacy, not because it has been all that relevant since the GBA scene died years and years ago.

Otherwise, although being able to filter the most recent posts box would be nice, it isn't too terribly hard to click what's new and simply ignore the 3DS related subjects.

do you think this is a joke? come on...

gba is a console launched on 2001, keeping the gba is like keeping windows 98 as your OS

and the administrators when they choose the name, it was supposed to be a temporary website. therefore they called it "temp"

so yeah. for keep a familiar name, easy to remember i say "3dsperm.net"
the name looks really modern and does not change much...

there is a policy of members not being able to change their names specially if they are already known to avoid confusing and not knowing that member

so therefore. when if 3dsperm was the new name, it would be easy to rememebr because "most recent nintendo console" and "site is no longuer temporary"

so yeah, i am seriously serious.

EDIT: i remember when people didnt knewFoxi4 because admins changed his name as @Pony4
i was like: wth who is this guy??? the 4letters and the 4 at the end says it is indeed that guy with computer avatars, but the pony was not related so i didnt knew him

What other current Nintendo system is hacked? The 3ds gets all the attention because it's the only one.
We would get coverage on N's other systems anyway if this wasn't a hacking/homebrew/piracy community, but wake-up call time ... it is.

And another thing, is there some sort of rule that you have to click on the front page every time? Here's some help:

Changing the forums name has been discussed multiple times in the past. On every occassion it was decided that changing our name would mean a loss of identity and history so it has always been rejected. I doubt we will ever change the forums name, I would always be against it myself.

that's the equivalent telling your daughter she can't have sex, she will want it more because its forbidden!

as a EOF modepieator
i will start a rebelion and raise a flag (banner) of 3dsperm as the new land!

This thread was not entirely serious lol. But I would like to see some more news for devices other than the Nintendo 3ds.
