    Major rom comes out, bunch of misinformed and mistaken kids come looking for rom.
    Happens all the time, this site is easily mistaken for hosting roms.

    I think most people are refreshing to see if Scribblenauts has been dumped yet. I can't imagine THAT many people are concerned about the Japanese Pokemon games...

    Simply put, Pokemon. All hell breaks loose when a new game in the series comes out, even if it's just a remake. Ridiculous really.

    Stay on-topic!! [​IMG]

    If the page won't load, refresh the page, so it works perfectly.

    lol, so a bunch of noobs are able to take the site offline, but no hacker seems willing to touch this place?
    Ah well.
    We just need to keep these noobs in check somehow, too bad we can't go out and harvest their souls to power a giant raygun.

    THIS IS ON TOPIC, your the one going off topic here...


    OP was asking what was going wrong with the site... it was even "off" for awhile because of people like YOU refreshing the pages... non-stop.

    Pokemon is mainly the cause... every single kid comes here and refreshes the index page, over and over and over, waiting for a fix / download link / WHATEVER.

    As the rom name is posted here before anywhere else (generally). Once they have it here they can google it and get the torrent/RS/Direct link I suppose =/

    GBAtemp should accept donations to allow them to pay a better server

    Donators can be given special rights , like when you reach X posts, you can close own topics or something or a bigger PM box. Or even simple things like the "reason for edit" thing or the "hide that I edited this" thing, or allowing to use HTML (I would choose the last thing [​IMG])

    Of course, donations are optional and the amount can limited.
