Thing is, most new members ignore the pinned topics, but we could try. confused.gif

APRIL 2012 - UPDATE #15!


This topic was locked when I first wanted to do the updates, I wonder why, but it doesn't really matter. tounge.gif
Just another month when I update this guide, apparently it's exactly April Fools today. I've got no prank though.
Let's just get on the list, shall we? It's a short one, still waiting for something interesting to happen with the forums, GTA V2, GTA V, whatever...

MAY 2012 - UPDATE #16!


Double post again but the inactivity of this topic makes me do it. Got a new month update for this guide, hope it'll come in hand for somebody sometime. It just gets lost so easily, so I really hope to get this pinned once for all. But, until then, the list of the updates.
  • Added the "Nominations" & "Polls are open" to the Annual Awards list. (2.3)
  • Edited the last "Thanks" line at the Unofficial Group table from xHIGHWAY_REAPERx to Mr. Reaper. (3.2)
  • Fixed a BB Code bug at the Simple Posting Tag section, at E-mail. (7.1)
  • Linked this update to the Guide updates list. (13.2)
  • Updated the first post with the new number of posts in the forum statistics. (1.0)
  • Updated the Unofficial Gangs list with the new one created and updated by Mr. Reaper. (3.2)
  • Updated the Special Collections list with Wolf68k, adding a brief description. (2.5)
  • Updated the Funny Games list with the new San Andreas Chain Game round. (12.1)
  • Updated the Important Topics list with the IV Mission Help (SnP) Rules & FAQ topic of PrometheusX. (12.2)
  • Removed aru from the Special Collections list. (2.5)
Still not so many updates considering that we're still waiting for some bomb to explode on the forum. Like a GTA V announcement or something. V2 is welcome too anytime. Have fun all and enjoy the summer! I really felt like I was getting frozen some months ago. tounge.gif

Exactly, this deserved the pin since it was first published. Glad the moderators finally did it. Although I have to say that the reasion this gets no replies is because it is such a well-done guide that there is no need to reply to it. People don't feel the need to ask questions because they just look at the guide for answers.

Congrats on the pin miro! icon14.gif
