QUOTE (A White CJ @ Jan 24 2011, 22:03)
Is there a way I can put a button into threads that allows the viewer to hide or show the information? Some forums use that as spoilers, instead of these silly spoilers GTAForums use. It would be awfully helpful for my concept threads.

Nope, not possible. I believe that feature is not supported by this version of IPB and is available only in newer versions or some sort of hack might be needed to enable such a feature on this old version, which I don't see happening in the near future. The current spoiler tags are all that you have.

Sorry if this has already been answered in this topic, but how did I collapse the side bar on the left? Is it all dependable on the skin that's been used?

There's a tab under "new messages" or something that says "collapse menu".

They have to pay more for the amount of pinned topics, I believe?

Think this should be moved to the network area if it's not to be pinned so it doesn't get lost.

Oh OK. I've just been looking around and most pinned topics have been unpinned. Some have been unpinned due to activity.

It won't get lost, at least that's what I hope. I'm feeling really mad about the thing that it'll be unpinned. But moving it to the GTA Network forums won't help. Noobs usually come here first, than there. Actually, this should have stayed pinned in my opinion, as this is not that active to stay always on top.

Anyway, I'm going to update this guide monthly anyway, so it won't be 'totally' lost. The first updated also called 'February 2011 Update' will be made on 1 Feb 2011. wink.gif
On the other hand, thanks to everyone for the nice words and feedback, it's a pleasure to see people actually reading and caring about this guide. icon14.gif

FEBRUARY 2011 - UPDATE #1!


First off everything, sorry for double posting. I had to do it. dozingoff.gif
Thanks to everyone for the feedback, it's really welcome. I'm really sad that this topic got unpinned, as I don't think it's that active to stay always on top. Whatever, staff may know better than me.
Anyway, without any other waiting, here's the list of the updates.
  • Added spoiler at almost each chapter over the 'Edit by' line, to make things look cooler.
  • Added at almost every sub category the 'top' and 'content' jump tags.
  • Added new link to the unofficial gangs of GTAForums, made by Vin.
  • Added the new glitch related to unbanned accounts, mentioned by Josh.
  • Added the GTANet Annual Awards 2010 topics; well, the nominations topic for now.
  • Added gamesguru, Waddy & El Zilcho to the 'Thanks' list.
  • Deleted GTADedan from the special collections list.
  • Fixed some jump tags that weren't working in the guide content.
  • Fixed some typos at the Awarding System category.
  • Fixed a lot of unfinished jump to tags in almost each chapter.
  • Modified the second picture at the over-sized signatures, as the old one expired.
  • Modified at Dutchy's request at the gold medal from 'dudes' to 'members'.
  • Updated the gang list at the Unofficial gangs with some new ones.
  • Updated the new versions of the GTA III & San Andreas Chain Game rounds.
This would be everything I updated. I should have updated more this guide but I just hadn't enough time to do that. Will add more in the March 2011 update. Now, let me answer to some replies which I found... interesting. happy.gif

QUOTE (meta187 @ Dec 31 2010, 21:52)
Impressive level of diligence and work put into this, hopefully the other Official gangs will be more forthcoming with info in the future.

I do have all of their origins filed away though if you're ever interested.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, the request is still pending. I hope the other Official Gang members will share a little history about their gang as The Connection did. icon14.gif

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, sorry. I've modified there and wrote instead of 'dudes', 'members'. tounge.gif

I'm glad to see a romanian putting such work to this forum. I don't see this everyday, so you really raised our way of how we are, better than any other could do. I hope to see more good comrades around this forum like you and specially the young ones, hopping to understand, that this is one of those ways where someone can represent himself.

I salute you +1 icon14.gif

Thanks man. Don't forget about Narcis. He contributed and still contributes to this community a lot, even more than I do. I'm just trying to change the opinion of people here related to us and, maybe, our country. Maybe this way they'll stop thinking we're only fools.

This would be everything. Have fun!
Oh, and the Official Gangs... the gang information request is still pending. You can send me at any time information related to an official gang, and I'll update the guide with it in the closest month update. icon14.gif

Thanks for the mention, changing the opinion of hundreds of members is harder than it looks,
after all the stuff are our fellow Romanians do when they go in another country.

Yeah. However, here are not too many Romanians around. (me, you, Blitz, Claude Speed and some other in the General GTA Chat and DYOM). Anyway, keep up the good work you're doing in the GFX Section. I already recommended you to 'a mod' for an award but still nothing. tounge.gif

I'm such a dumb. Seems like I forgot to add Algonquin Assassins to the Funny Games section. suicidal.gif
Please forgive me El Zilcho, and thanks for reminding.

MARCH 2011 - UPDATE #2!


Alright, you all ready for another update? tounge.gif
I've got to say that I didn't updated this month as much as I did for February, because of school. Same is going to happen for the April 2011 update as well. confused.gif
Even so, the main things that happened in the past month on GTAForums are updated here!
  • Added even more 'content' and 'top' jump to tags. Still, not everywhere.
  • Added again spoiler at almost each chapter over the 'Edit by' line, to make things look cooler.
  • Added Claude Speed's new game 'Where Am I?' of GTA III in the funny games list.
  • Added information related to Zaibatsu got from Ottae.
  • Added Ottae to the 'Thanks' list.
  • Couldn't add the 'Edit by' spoiler on the BB Code post because of some error.
  • Fixed the jump to tag from the contents list which links to advanced posting tags.
  • Fixed even more jumpto tags. Still, not all of them.
  • Linked this update to the Guide Updates list.
  • Updated the new versions of the GTA III & San Andreas Chain Game rounds.
  • Updated the GTAForums Gamer Tag Index with the link to the new updated topic of Vin.
I'm really sorry I didn't more, but I just hadn't time. I'll most probably work more next time. tounge.gif
Also, if you've got something that isn't here, an information, a game, topic, whatever, please send me a Personal Message and tell me. The request is still pending about the official gangs information. Those fools people are lazy. like hell!

I just got a PM from Ottae with information related to Zaibatsu. Thanks Ottae!
The information is available now at 3.1 at the Zaibatsu section. So, I added Ottae to the 'Thanks' list. icon14.gif

Any other gang is free to share information related to their gang at any time, and I'll update the guide at the upcoming update with the information given. Thanks everybody. smile.gif

APRIL 2011 - UPDATE #3!


First off, sorry for the late update. I know I should have done it a week ago, but my PC broke down due to an unknown virus which messed up a bunch of my games. Still, it's better late than never, I promise I'll post the update in the right date next time! Please forgive me, and don't think I forgot about this. tounge.gif
Anyway, let's get on the list.
  • Added the "Polls are open" & "Results" to the Annual Awards list.
  • Added girishb to the Special Collections list.
  • Added again spoilers at the rest of posts which hadn't, to hide the post edit date.
  • Added even more 'content' and 'top' jump to tags. Might have missed that in some places, though.
  • Added AndyGanteks to the "Thanks" list.
  • Changed Josh's name in the "Thanks" list from "Josh?" to "Josh", removing the question mark. (?)
  • Deleted flicko from the Special Collections list.
  • Fixed even more invalid jumpto tags, might have missed a bunch of them though.
  • Linked this update to the Guide Updates list.
  • Modified a little the descriptions at the "Special Collections" of lil weasel, Narcis_speed6, Ryan &
    Dutchy3010.
  • Updated the unofficial gangs list made by Vin.
Although the list seems short, I worked more on this update than the March one. The work is getting less and less because there isn't too much going on. Still, one or two changes are always being made in a month.
Just a friendly reminder - anyone that knows more about anything in this guide, please don't hesitate to send me a Personal Message and your information will be added today (Apr 8, 2011) or in the May 2011 update.
Any official gang is still free to send or ask for change information about the gang and history.
Now, it's time to quote a few mates around. wink.gif

I can't help. It's up to the staff. Still, you can always have a look in the Off-topic section and search a few pages as it shouldn't be so far. Depends of the date you're looking for it.

I can't help with anything. I thought that all newbies visit at least once the Off-topic section, that's why I posted it here. I've got no idea what I should have done to it to get attention. dozingoff.gif

Look like you have a few changes to make...

The admin group has been split up. Also there is now a new developer group comprising of Tank, Suction Testicle Man and fred .

Andy, illspirit and adamcs are network admins.

Waddy, jelly and Gangsta Killa are now forum admins.

Luke is the only IRC admin. As far as I know all of the admins groups appear in yellow.

Also have you taken not of the glitch which means that when a user has their group changed, for example from admin to developer, their signature becomes filled with HTML where there once was bbcode. Only remaking the signature can solve this problem and it also occurs in custom profile fields which allow text entry.
