    Its because thousands of people keep checking to see if brawl has been dumped yet.

    There was 1000 people online total. Anyone have stats on how many people joined just to see if Brawl was dumped? It's getting irritating, honestly. One even PM'd me to take a picture of my Brawl box with his name on it. [​IMG]

    wtf!? [​IMG]

    Can you take one for me? [​IMG]
    just kidding XD

    Saddest part is that the game is already out but we still have no ISO and some modchips are already having problems running the original disc.. GBATemp will probably continue like this until those things have been resolved.. and God knows when this will happen.. [​IMG]

    Bonus points if the pic is a tastily done semi-nude with the box used for strategic covering.

    Is it possible to remove posting rights for any newcomers for the month of Jan? Even us lurkers are starting to get annoyed.

    And we rarely talk!

    *Waves the little lo-fi forum flag*. Less features so it loads quicker, and you only have to switch back to the full version to post.

    Someone blatantly asked where the ISO was (a person that joined yesterday) and the topic reached two pages. That's two pages too much. XD

    Lots of persons asked for the ISO, but most of them just asked on the existing Brawl discussion topics..

    I got a warning for rick rolling that ISO requesting topic.. couldn't control myself.. sorry XP

    Yunno what'd be funny? If the admins restrict the whole damn forum except for the "Introductions" board over the next few days, for anybody who hasn't had more than 100 posts. Then, we all just lean back and watch the chaos ensue.
    $10 says every 3rd person will outright ask where to obtain roms.

    The mods should have a "flood emergency" button, that redirects anyone with less than 100 posts to the text-only version of the forum.
