Ask GBAtemp! (or just Ask!) is one of the features of GBAtemp.net. It was revealed to the public on October 30th, 2010. Ask is one of the features that were removed when the site switched to XenForo. It was added back two and a half years later, with the introduction of GBAtemp V5.
Ask is described to be a giant FAQ, which can be maintained by all members of the site. Members are encouraged to ask as many questions as possible, and even to answer their own questions. Features are purposely very limited in contrary to the forums: smilies and most BBcode (with exception of [b], [i], [u], and [url]) can not be used. It is advised to keep larger discussions to the forums and keep the simple questions for Ask! because of this.
Questions can have 3 flag colors:
- = This question has received no answers yet.
- = This question has received answers, but no best answer has been selected by the question poster or a moderator.
- = This question has a best answer.
