    They also have a line at the bottom of the screencaps that says Pics by GBATemp. Please don't bring this little war between your two sites here.

    This has to be stopped, they are our images, made by our good old regular newsposters, hosted on OUR bandwith, OUR webspace and LEECHED onto their crappy little leecher site. Boycot www.romshrine.com now!

    Oh and having "Pictures from GBATemp" below them, doesnt not make them leechers, they are trying to justify theft. Anyone to say thats ironic will be killed.

    Classic.

    Ive been reading a few posts... all they do is bag other peoples sites, say how shit everyone is, then leech off them.

    I swear, if I could hack... but course, I cant, so ill just boycott them.

    Yeah I just thought shady was being bitter because of that news post
    but now I realise he's bitter and has a point
    I'm pretty sure 99% of us don't go there
    But that 1% better stop this second
    Hey with all the members here we could probably
    do a little of the old slashdot (J/K of course)

    I think ill send a nice little email off to the admin there, no, not a sarcastic nice, a real nice [​IMG]. Ill tell em not to leech our bandwith, although we arent too fussed they use our images, we prefer they create their own. As long as they dont leech our bandwith.

    I registered and posted a message in their forums to remove the images, lets just wait and see what happens. Leeching bandwidth from GBATemp can not be justified.

    I have contacted romphreak, and have PM'd him with a very formal sounding letter. Pretty much it tells him to stop leeching, else we take anti-leeching actions.

    they are lamers. As soon as the admin leaves they stop caring for the sites and I am talkin about the admins. But who gives a shit. I just want to say that no matter what I think about them whether it is positive or negative they are still leeching Gbatemp's picture. The admins never show up so better put it up on the frontpage or something so all the members can see how cheap these admins are.

    Maks sorry about gbarealm; I was trying to hack kayaz not you.


    peace out

    Why doesn't GBATemp just use some anti-leech scripts that prevent your images from being hotlinked? That would solve the problem pretty quick, and bollocks to them, because they obviously aren't going to stop.

    Tossers.

    Or just for fun, switch file names of current pictures and post something really funny as a replacement picture

    if that doesn't get a point across....
