    You mean this is the Temp's 10th Anniversary and the staff has nothing planned?

    While we're talking about wiki pages, who wants to fill mine out?
    I would, but...yanno....so fucking lazy.
    You'll get all the credit, and I'll answer whatever questions you need to know.
    No fanboy crap, just honest writing.

    Hopefully there will be something around the end of the year. I'm sure losing our sponsor threw a wrench in whatever plans Costello had. (Assuming he had some in regards to celebrating the Anniversary.)

    Of course we have something planned.
    We're going to have a staff retreat to Bora-Bora and never return.

    PM me a rough draft and we'll work from there. You're a good guy and all, but you might lean a bit too much toward the fanboy realm that I'm trying to avoid.

    GBAtemp was founded in the summer of 2010 by its original admins AlanJohn and Sausagehead. Its original purpose was to function as an R4 clone support forum and as a sort of online baby sitting service for out of work, drug addicted single mothers. However sadly the original vision of its founding admins has eroded over time and now GBAtemps sole purpose is that of an online battleground for 12 year old Sony and Nintendo fanboys to bicker with each other constantly and post out of context agenda driven news in order to one up each other.

    I think this story's a bit incomplete. I saw no mention of switching hands from the original moderators to the ones we have now. Also, I noticed that KiVan's semi-last post was 1539 - Barbie Secret Agent (E). :O
