Um. I can't see any point of bumping it, if it's not yours. And if a new member needs more information, he/she can read it easily.

NOVEMBER 2012 - UPDATE #22!


Alright guys! Here we come once more for a short guide update. It's probably one of the shortest updates I've ever done mainly because, even with all the new information coming from GTA V, much else wasn't really happening around the forums. I've updated a few things and that's pretty much it. PM me if you know of anything else worth putting in the guide - I'll check it immediately! smile.gif
  • Added the "All About Games!" topic in the Importants Topics list. (12.2)
  • Edited Dutchy's commendation collection description in the Special Collections section. (2.5)
  • Linked this update to the Guide updates list. (13.2)
  • Updated the first post with the new forum stats, number of members & posts. (1.0)
  • Updated the Funny Games list with the new "Guess the vehicle" topic link of GTA III. (12.1)
  • Updated the Unofficial Gangs list with the new one created and updated by Mr. Reaper. (3.2)
So yeah, that's pretty much it! Not much to list, I know, but I couldn't find many things changing in the past month so there.

JANUARY 2013 - UPDATE #24!


Happy new year guys! Hopefully 2013 is going to be a great year for every single of us! biggrin.gif
Now, coming back to the guide update, I've just completed the 24th update of this guide and I'm gladly saying a happy birthday to the newbie guide which turned 2 years a couple of days ago. So let's get going with the list!
  • Deleted the "Error Reporting" thread in the GTA: State of Liberty section of the Important Topics list. (12.2)
  • Deleted the asterix (*) that was next to the moderators and administrators who were under anonymous status in the Administrators and Moderators lists. (9.1 & 9.2)
  • Deleted the explanation of the asterix (*) that was next to the anonymous administrators and moderators in the Administrators section. (9.1)
  • Linked this update to the Guide updates list. (13.2)
  • Moved anuj, DexX, Craig, Mainland Marauder & uNi from the Moderators list to the Retired Staff - Moderators list. (9.2 -> 9.3)
  • Updated the copyright of the Newbie Guide at it's very bottom. (13.3)
  • Updated the first post with the new forum stats - the increase of posts number. (1.0)
  • Updated the Funny Games list with the new San Andreas & GTA III Chain Game rounds' links. (12.1)
  • Updated the Unofficial Gangs list with the new one created and updated by Mr. Reaper. (3.2)
I know there aren't many updates, but that's pretty much the only changed stuff I've seen happening during the last month. However, in case I miss anything, or you want me to remove or add something PLEASE DO tell me since I've very interested in any kind of improvisation to the guide. Thanks a lot and happy new year once more! cool.gif

I don't like to bump this topic further but I just wanted to point something out..

QUOTE (F.A.Q)
Q. Anyone knows the limit of the Respect List in out profiles? How many people can we add?
A. You can add as many people as you want.

It seems that, Respect list has limits too

Here's the source

I'm not sure if Celestial was actually joking but it'd be good if a staff member confirms this.

Nevertheless, great stuff.

MARCH 2013 - UPDATE #26!


Alright, so here we are for the third update of 2013. There were small but noticeable issues with the guide that I felt like mentioning to have been fixed, even if they may seem ridiculous to fix. Anyway, here's the list, which is quite different from the previous ones. tounge.gif

  • Updated the GTA IV Funny Games list with the new "Guess the Vehicle" topic link. (12.1)
  • Updated the "ENJOY" picture at the end of the Guide with a new working link.

MAY 2013 - UPDATE #28!


Thanks to everybody for their kind words. I too wish this topic to get a little more attention, but I can't help any further than 1 post monthly. This month's update is also barely an update, rather than a bump, since there weren't any massive changes in any section, just the usual statistics updates and a few new / update links.
  • Added the "GTAForums Skype V3" topic to the Off-Topic Important Threads list. (12.2)
  • Added the Quiz Competitions' topics to the Funny Games list of GTA IV & Vice City. (12.1)
  • Linked this update to the Guide updates list. (13.2)
  • Updated the first post with the new forum stats - the increase of members' number. (1.0)
  • Updated the "Funny Games" list with the new GTA IV "Guess The Place" topic link. (12.1)

That's kinda everything that I found update-worth. However, I've been away a few days in Turkey, so I might have missed new stuff. And even if I weren't, I could have still missed something. Please DO tell me about anything that I should add in this month's update either through posting in this topic or simply by sending me a Personal Message - thank you. icon14.gif

I remember reading through some of the topics on this thread when I first discovered GTAForums.

I strongly agree with ExtremeLimitations; the topic well deserves to be sticky'd as it does, has and will help new members. Great work, miromiro. The fact it is still regularly updated brings a smile to my face.
