    Hello everyone, sorry if it has been posted before, could not find anything like this (and sorry for any language mistakes). I've been around gbatemp for a while, never posted anything, simply because i'm a little shy and stuff, and was afraid of posting something completelly useless, off-topic random things. If i could not find what I was curious about (games tips, codes and so on) I simply didn't post, and just waited around some related topic for some answer, never wanted to get topics closed for a lot of off-topic things and spamming, flaming, trolling, and all those stuff I don't know exactly what they means ^^.

    The thing is... I'm curious about the origin of the site, it's staff personal, and of course, it's "life course", simply because I want to be a part of the forum talks, discussion, you know, "be around", don't be some "useless guy that makes stupid things".

    Sorry if this is the wrong session, if it has been posted before, but it's just a curiosity of mine that I hope that will be answered nice ^^.

    I know that there is a session for introduction, i'll probably go there after a while, but just wanted to say: "Hi guys, i'm Gustavo Bacci, call me GB, and I want to be around and not a 'ghost member' ^^ "

    Don't let that stop you, I'm sure you can be more worthwhile than most around. If not check out the EoF, that place is made for useless and random stuff.

    Haha man, you're over-thinking it....Just relax and post when you feel like it [​IMG]

    EoF is a great place for having a laugh, or taking a piss [​IMG]
    And no need for apologizing, it's good to have a thread like this for some newer members that don't know about our roots [​IMG]

    Heres the story, GBAtemp sucked until 18-April 08, then it became awesome.

    And then they lived happily ever after! [​IMG]

    Nah.

    Its ratings dropped 20-30% after 28 November 2008.

    Wooooo, why is it that KiVan is the only original Admin with the orange/red medals? Don't the other 2 post much?
