So how do admins come about getting a job for the site and do they get paid?

Do the admins that run the website have connections to R* or are they just made up of a fan community?

If the admins do have true connections with R* do they get the information hook-up to get info about games b4 they come out?

Do the admins work from home or is there a little office In A building somewhere with a bunch of admins talking to eachother saying stuff like "dude check out this losers post. He needs to get laid."?

Exactly how much power does an admin have over users and thread posts?

As far as I'm concerned, being an Admin is more of a favor than a job. They don't get paid, they get asked to do so, no charge.
They don't have connections to Rockstar, they just administrate the GTA Network, which has nothing to do with R*.
So, no they don't get information regarding stuff like the next Grand Theft Auto or its release date.
They work from home as far as I know, or at least their own computer located somewhere not necessarily a household.
And an Admin has A LOT of power in the forums and should be highly respected, as they can get you banned if they want and can just block you and make your life miserable. wink.gif

Most admins are the guys who have been here for, like forever. Guys like illspirit and Tank etc, they were the oldest of old school. All admins are volunteers and fans of Grand theft Auto (or were once whatsthat.gif ). Nobody gets paid- all revenue comes from the banner on top of the sites and goes toward's Tank's operating costs.

This may be R*'s official forum but we have a free hand in running it.

@blitz. Actually we are their official forum. Check the newbie guide history section if you want more info.

Newbie guide is wrong then. This a fan run forum, not an official Rockstar forum.

No, but the old school admins get invited all the time for R* events. That includes playing the GTAs first hand. Plus a few members of the staff, admins and mods, get R* goodies(GTA and other titles) from time to time.

It's not R*'s forum per say, but this is the biggest official R* fan-network in the world. So they pretty much aware of us, and this site is well know along them. There's R* staff on the IV forums, plus mentions in GTAs manuals etc etc we just got mention in the R* newswire as well.

The staff members are located all around the globe so no.

Nice quoting there uni!

We do communicate with Rockstar, as do other fansites - for example. Otherwise we're all just fans of the series.
