    I think you can... I never read anything about not being able to. The only links that you cant post are "direct rom links." :\

    Normally that is not allowed unless you have it within your signiture like mine. You cant just go around spamming it or creating topics with it. That will end up getting you suspended..

    Linking TO GBATemp is fine, as far as I know. As long as it's clear we are NOT a rom site or a warez site, it should be fine. Also, if your site is intended for the crowd that would spam us, it might be nice to not link us instead. If your audience is decent, usually, then it should be fine.

    thx i already got the no rom and warez part in the site description and well actually, just read this, it is what i wrote

    GBATemp - that would be link there
    This is probobly the best online forum for use of Gameboy Advance discusion I have ever found. With over 9500 users you are sure to get an answer for whatever your question is. PLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE POSTING IN THE FORUM! There are no rom requests allowed and you cant request for other illegal items. Also, spamming is not permitted and you will be banned if cought. Please keep the forum clean and if you need help just ask me or ask user Octavious at GBATemp or read the help and rules forum.

    Sorry for the spelling errors in there there has to be some i just cant type that neat that fast lol but is that fine?

    Looks fine to me. Of course, the spelling is another story. [​IMG]

    The rules say "no linking to other forums except if that link is in your sig". Some of us link anyway, but never more than once or twice (usually to reference something, like the Taggerz forum for the sig contest or Designs 31 for sig work). Sig links are fine.

    its not a forum, it is just a site that will soon have a lot of downloads for developers on it, like ham and pogo and other things (no roms tho)
