    i often got links to gbatemp on youtube tutorials, also, i consider it the best english speaking gaming comunity i've been/i am a part of, like, you can have serious discussions here that dont devolve into flame wars, but it's not extremely censored, i've never been able to do that anywhere else, also, it's pretty much the only english speaking forum i visit, if you dont count ocasional lurks to /r9k/ and /k/, but those are few and far between, all my other gaming discusion is on GDLG, where i am a moderator, but i dont take discussions there too seriously

    Not too many avenues of where I can meet, mingle, and possibly make more friends with other people who share an interest in video games. Also tell more people about free/open-source software and games; they often suffer from poor marketing, unless word-by-mouth succeeds.

    Pretty sure I joined due to the 3DS 9.2 modding craze, although by the time my birthday came around, I ended up having to wait for Ironhax which was literally the most amazing thing back then, since it let you finally downgrade to 9.2 from 9.8 or 10.2? Can't remember since it's been so long.

    Talked to a few people here and there, but sadly nothing more than that.

    Actually I would like to change my original reply for the true reason:
    I got an ad that said that hot single mothers were in here.

    It feels like I have something useful to contribute here, and people are not overtly hostile. What more could you want?

    To add to my year old post, I have also become a moderator a few months ago.

    Never thought I would have gone this far.

    I joined after I realized how much I missed being on TheIsoZone, mainly for original Xbox, Wii and PSP stuff. Then I ended up meeting a lot of cool people and really broadening my modding horizons.

    I always want to do something and I don't remember if this was my first gbatemp to join but here I am. My first question was emulators everywhere before jailbreak existed. I wanted to read more news about emulators, games announcement. and later jailbreak.

    I'd made a Windows Vista inspired theme for the M3 DS Real Flashcard.

    After spending two days working on it I figured it would be good to start it on the most popular NDS forum at the time.

    I believe it ended up been one of the most downloaded themes for the flash card at the time.

    I had questions about how to hack my Switch, mainly. This was back before RetroArch officially got involved with the Switch specifically and the version of RetroArch we had was RetroNX, what with the synthwave theme that I remember seeing a lot of on YT thanks to V A P O R W A V E recommends. One thing lead to another, and now I have +1,000 posts now!

    I bought a GBA flashcart and got the info on which to get from here, reading old reviews. But I joined a few months later, and I don't remember why exactly... probably just to comment on the releases or something ^_^

    Haha... this in a nutshell... Back when gbatemp first started you didn't need to sign up to download, but that quickly changed, and later you needed to be active on the forums if I remember. And the rest is history.

    To help others, get help, post in the EoF, and because most users in this diverse community are accepting of people who're different.

    I forgot why, but I think it was because the admin forced people to make an account for some reason.
