    I tend to agree, I can sorta see the difference in them but its really probably not necessary.

    the first forum you mentionned is meant for things like utils, tools, devices (eg. screen protections, custom stylus, tv tuner..) whereas the other one is only for FLASHING devices (flash linkers, adapters, ...)

    there is, in my opinion, no need for further debate on this subject... but it's only my opinion.

    Costello's opinion > All tbh.

    BTW: Do you still intend to update GBArms? Because it's a great proggy and I'd love to see some new stuff implemented.

    Hi, yes I can see that's probably what they're supposed to be for, but people posting don't seem to realise that. Stuff about the new DS Lite gets posted in both forums, as does stuff about flash kits. Instead of merging them, maybe something needs to be done to make the distinction more clear, or some heavy moderation to move off-topic threads.

    Personally I just read both forums so it's no biggie, although duplication of threads is a little annoying.

    I agree that the two forum sections should stay separate. But you're right about a lot of the flashing topics being started in the wrong forum section. Maybe removing the word " devices" frorm the forum name would help, seeing as most non-flashing stuff falls under "hardware" anyway? Or mention the fact that flashing hardware does not go in there somewhere in the forum description

    I say the more forums, the greater the chance of you finding the info you are looking for [​IMG]
