    Around late 2003/early 2004 I think.
    The exact date? I dunno, I was 4 years at the time.

    “About half a year into the forums life, the staff had to come to the decision that ROMs would no longer be available to download from GBAtemp, and all warez and other illegal material would be ruled out on the forum. The reason this was done is because a lot of members and the staff themselves had really come to appreciate the forums and each other, and didn't want to risk losing the community they had built up. So to avoid legal issues and to make sure GBAtemp was never shut down, all ROMs, ROM links, warez and more were now strictly forbidden on the 'new GBAtemp'.”

    There really isn't another place like gbatemp around so it's good that DMCA violations were banned

    I don't get it, you can't download roms anymore but you can still download themes and save files?
