    Pointless topic I know but liek a few weeks ago for only a week or 2 there were random banner messages every day and now they don't seem to change anymore. Why were they added and then removed? I liked the random messages. [​IMG]

    I remember seeing:

    We knew you'd be back
    We hate Mondays!
    We put the OWN in downtime
    Welcome back
    Limited to 1 per customer
    Reorganizin'
    The best DS community on the net!

    Eternia!
    "We put the OWN in downtime" cracked me up when I saw it. I saw another amusing one too which said something along the lines of "Livening up your interwebz".

    I like(ed) them.

    No. The cheat forum was stealing all the new banner quotes from GBAtemp. [​IMG]

    Ah. I guess it would become annoying. I thought that it worked by choosing a random quote from a list of already typed out quotes every 24 hours or so but I guess it doesn't then. [​IMG]
