    So, yesterday someone asked me why I joined the Temp, and I had to think quite some time back. And that makes me wonder how other members learned of the Temp, what the first topic they visited was and why they joined the Temp~!

    I guess I best start with my own~! [​IMG]

    I first learned about the temp when I got my DSTT quite sometime ago, back then I was looking for some cheats for one of games and I stumbled upon "The NEW massive CHEAT compilation thread" [​IMG]~! I also joined the temp around that time, but didn't do much with my account back then. I began to get more active on the temp, since I got my Acekard2i, I remember how much the AKAIO guide helped~! I also wanna say a thank you to everyone who helps around the temp~!

    Bought myself a Cyclo DS EVO to play Streets of Rage, someone on Gamefaqs (my previous haunt) dropped a rather unsubtle hint that I should come here for help, so I did. Now I damn near live here.

    I was looking for a Flash2advance with a gameboy bridge so I joined to use the trading forum. I ended up finding one on ebay.

    I joined as part of the noob flood from 09's Spirit Tracks release, at the time it was just to say thanks for a save someone uploaded.

    Well at first I just checked the web for updates on TTDS infolib, etc. files, then I said "let's have a look at the home page" and Oh! they had an everupdating list of released ROMs which I found useful.

    Once often checking that release section, I couldn't help but notice the latest posts tab and I felt teased to post many times until well, I joined :B

    When I first got my DSlite and my TTDS I started to search for guides, homebrews and info, gbatemp has this all and more, that's why I joined the temp

    Haha I joined a loong time ago, before the DS was even an idea. I was trying to find a way to hack my GBAMP to play GBA roms.... It never happened, but eventually it did play some NDS roms.

    I joined because I really needed support when it came to DS flashcarts. My R4 was a big money saver back then.


    Now, I just talk and enjoy the community. I'm not a pirate anymore. [​IMG]

    Aaah but pirates are fun, just look at Jack~! Oh wait you mean that kinda pirate [​IMG]. I use it for quite a few things atm. I used it to follow the news about the 3DS, use it to follow releases and just to enjoy the community~! Lately I've been wondering why I didn't become more active earlier, since it's a lot of fun to just look around the temp and comment on things that are interesting or funny xD~!

    Antoligy just wants to plug that video whenever possible. [​IMG]

    Like I said before, I'm not quite sure why, but I'm glad I did.

    Weird though, if I was active when I joined I would have noticed how this place was before prowler_, Guild and tj_cool, among others. [​IMG]

    I came here when I almost bought a DS from a GBAtemp member off craigslist, he got cold feet, we chatted, he recommended GBAtemp.net for the community (back then) and places to buy stuff.

    Thanks Shinji.

    Some guy named Costello randomly emailed me:

    I was confused and figured i should throw the guy a bone... and couldn't quite figure out why he used a spam subject header, but whatever.

    This place is cool so i figured i could slum it for a bit.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Yeah I kinda know what you mean, sometimes a member pops up and you think who is that? And then you find out that member is quite well known O.o And then there are members that have dissapeared since then...
    At least it's never boring around here~! I love how there's always something to do, with some of the random topics and the competitions that open up and such~! [​IMG]
