    Welcome to GBAtemp v2!

    Welcome to the updated GBAtemp!
    It's finally happened - there are changes at GBAtemp! Now sporting a fully licenced IPB 2, we're ready to progress and keep growing!
    GBAtemp v2 brings a cleaner portal, an updated skin, new forums, a new database system, gOnline, new features from IPB 2, new staff members, a WORKING review section (open to all submitted reviews), new user ranks (pips), new emoticons, and support for Nintendo DS and the PSP, and much more!

    We know you'll be pleased with the changes GBAtemp v2 brings! So take a look around and settle back down! [​IMG]
    But... these changes aren't the last! You'll see even more changes, including bigger ones in the coming MONTHS, and years!!

    New Staff:
    On board are four new staff members! Darkforce, phuzzz, Qrayzie and Zarcon! Congratulations to them, they earnt their positions. Please don't give them too much work to do! [​IMG]

    Also we have one new Admin who definitely earnt his position too - Costello! Congrats mate, GBAtemp v2 wouldn't be here without you! [​IMG]

    Also, congratulations to djgarf who was promoted to Supervisor! Due time, eh mate? [​IMG]
    And unfortunately, some staff were also removed due to certain circumstances or inactivity.
    One last thing: good job to |Wolf|, thanks a lot for your help mate! Welcome to the technician group! [​IMG]

    Enjoy GBAtemp v2!! [​IMG]

    Here we go.

    New features and changes
    • Board upgraded to Invision Power Board v2.0.2 (soon .3) , with a valid licence key
    • gOnline (full release list with nfo, pictures, boxart... + ranking and comments system + search..bla bla)
    • Current skin ported to IPB v2.0.3, believe me this was the hardest part
    • skin completely fixed (some colors, images, and page layouts were modified to fit better)
    • New box on the portal: "GBAtemp Reviews", which will show links for the latest reviews (including both N.DS and GBA reviews)
    • "latest posts" modified: 15 posts are now listed, with new better icons and better display. Now nicknames listed in there are clickable
    • some new great smileys (omg shaun u rule)
    • Categories and Forum titles and descriptions modified
    • new forums in the NDS category (total: 6 forums)
    • new category: Other Systems Discussions, containing 2 forums
    • GBAtemp reviews forum edited: now new topics in this area will require shaunj66's approval to be published
    • Some boxes on the portal were removed: Statistics (the whole box, except "online members"), search the web with google, old news items, hall of fame, top forums, new members. These were removed for matters of bandwidth and speed. However, you can still check the whole "Statistics" box on the board index. And the "old news items" are listed on GBAtemp magazine forum. etc.
    • only 5 news items are displayed on the portal (for matters of speed and bandwidth mostly)
    • A link to the Forum Rules can be found on the members bar (next to your member name and "log out")
    • The forum rules have been completely re-written
    • New "member ranks": a new kind of pip (medal) appears when your post count is greater or equal to 1000.
    • top banner edited: the mascot was slightly improved, the text behind "GBATEMP.NET" now says "the largest GBA+DS community on the web
    and so many other little changes that make everything look great ! [​IMG]

    Wow its all looking quite nice, especially the gOnline system. The coders for that deserve a lot of respect.

    I'm still looking around all the little features to see what has changed and I really do like it. Keep up the good work.

    Heh, so we can stop pretending nothing going one now?

    YAY!!

    Let me put on my supervisor robe for a second and ask each person to look at the rules, there are some new things added, some old ones revised, and there will be no accepted excuse for not knowing what you can and can't do here...

    *takes off robes*

    Bleh... Now sit back relax and look for all the bugs you can find [​IMG]

    Just a question: I looked at the forum rules and they stated that they were made on Feb 2nd 2005. I'm fine with progressive rules, but isn't this a bit much?
