Me first!

When you Google GTA forums, the first entry is "gtaforums.com". So what determines what the second entry is going to be? Right now it's the GTA V subforums, but it has been individual topics before.

Let me begin with this wonderful topic. Before that I would like to say that if there is some question that wasn't answered at the time the v1 topic was closed,you may ask it here. On what grounds would one get irritated from using google?

He's Waddys bitch, apparently. No one knows actually, might be another account of an retired administrator.

Have a look at this. Here you can notice GTA SAN ANDREAS as the first subforum displayed, then other subforums like Mod showroom. Google always shows the results in an unspecified order. It may not be same the way it is on GTAFORUMS.COM

Minecraft server sub-forum, what happened to it? I mean i know the server is offline at the moment due to the hosting problems, but does the removal of the forum means it's out for good?

One time it was a topic called "Welcome to GTAF?" that I made - now it's GTA V, it once was General Chat.

Maybe you're right, though, about it being random. whatsthat.gif

The subforum has been hidden temporarily while we fix things up. The server will be coming back though, we're not dead yet smile.gif

Most likely once the moderators find a new host and re-make the server. (That's what I heard at least)

Glad this topic is back.

Why do people change accounts? I've seen a few "I've got a new account so you can ban this one" in the network support section. I don't get why you'd do that. It's possible to just get a name change right?

If someone would get a name change, anyone would want one. Most people refresh their accounts because of their dirty logs or because they just want a new name.

No. Not till the next forum update.

It is possible for an admin to change your name, but they don't really like people asking them for it, so most people just make a new account instead.

This is something which we don't do. Doing this we will expect the possible increase in number of people who would like to change their username and we won't change it, even if the name is available. If you want a new account name just create one and let us know.

Two questions:

Is there a benefit to being in an OGA? (serious answers please)
What's the member group "Waddy's Bitch" all about?

Why are you talking like you're an admin when you're clearly not?

@fgcarva1: No advantages really. It's just a forum where members from all the official gangs can post in. That's about it.

1) Depends on whether you are a guy who likes a place where others aren't allowed. You will know of the benefit only when you get there. 2) This is something out of member business. Don't care to ask for it. @Ryan:I won't mind the way you get it.

"Out of member business"? So, what is the member group "Waddy's Bitch" all about? Somebody has some confessing to do. inlove.gif

Why doesn't the "Retired Staff" member group show up in the member search? Are there any other groups (besides Waddy's bitch) that don't show?

They have the option either hide or show any group from member listings in the ACP. It could be used as security (to hide important members from search), or simply to keep secrets. tounge.gif

Retired staff has been hidden for security reasons. The "Group: Waddys bitch" is a glitch only.

You get an increased sense of kinship with your fellow members and, depending on which group you join, you may be allowed to participate in various orgies (or, more commonly, exclusive IRC and forum conversations).
