as far as I know private crews are 250, public crews are unlimited.

Here's to hoping for a Rockstar endorsement down the line. smile.gif
On the other hand, it might be good to have a limit, so we have to make sure we have the most qualified members to represent GTAF in the crew.

But on the other OTHER hand, there are many hardcore GTA fans on here that are not that skilled, so it would be unfair to them. Everybody from here would want to be in the crew, and since we are all registered users for this forum, and the crew is about the forum, everybody on this forum deserves to be in the crew.

After the 250 are reached, a GTAForums Crew 2 could be made. A bit like having different Brigades or Platoons.
Even though the best solution should be getting a R* Crew status.
GTAF deserves it.
Gamestop has something like 16 Crews and all together do not reach 100 members... meh.

We should contact an admin, to possibly notify R* of that.
GTAF's too big, and it would be unfair to divide into "platoons

After the ball is rolling I will be monitering activity stats a bit more closely and hopefully be able to track thngs like our top players and people who simply snagged a spot with no actual intention of representing us (aside from GTAF staff of course).

A 2nd GTAF Group is something I've considered but honestly at 250 capacity I expect there to be a lot of turn over. Even now we've had people join and leave to join other crews.

We want to do this in a way that is fair to anyone registered here that wants to join but we also want to reward and recognize our active and best players.

We are building currently a 250 slot roster that will hopefully show this, provided Social Club displays member stats in a clear way to us, you will be able to see who is in our top 20/50/100 and so forth. From there we'll also be able to open up places for folks who want to get into the original crew, when people leave or go inactive for long periods of time.

Obviously, to some degree this is speculation, we'll have to see exactly what Social Club is providing to crew leaders next week as far as stat tracking resources goes but we'll do our best to keep things above board and fair to everyone who wants to actively participate.

This is new and exciting territory we're venturing into here.

*I'm all for petitioning Rockstar for a R* Crew status but I honestly don't go that far up the food chain. Feel free to inquire with staff.

So I've decided to go to the midnight release of MP3 with some friends... it's always traditional to go to one for a Rockstar game.

I'm most likely going to try and finish the SP first before I put my focus on the MP. But when I do, trust that I will be dedicated to it. Been playing MP1 and 2, so I'm ready to kick some ass in MP3!

There are no requirements, just make sure to sign up on Social Club, then request an invite on the crew's main page. smile.gif

Andy's pretty tight with R*, so we might be able to get him to work his magic with them.

I'm probably going to end up buying Max Payne 3 later this year. I'm not as rich as some people here, that's for sure.

A big thanks to PrometheusX who just tabled our current roster of 127 members. It would be bad ass if by Tuesday we could come screaming out of the gate with our All Star Crew, 200 members strong. I've been checking in periodically throughout the day so keep those invite requests coming in.

Also on the roster you will notice that mainly it is just the Social Club name listed, if you want us to list your GTAF username please let us know who you are in this thread or via PM and we will update the board with your current info and platform preference.

I could be wrong about this but from what I can tell they seem to be picking major sites and organizations. I've seen everything in the featured listing from Reddit to the NYPD, so it looks like R* is showing us some love and acknowledgement.

I initially thought they were one's Rockstar had created themselves. Maybe Rockstar will increase the max. number of members for
these crews.

Got to take my hat off to whoever made those great emblems for the GTAF crew icon14.gif

I know the CP has been pretty dodgey since this got rolling. I still have open invite requests from people who joined us the first day. Poor Ganteks got like 8 invites from me in the first 2 days. If for whatever reason the invite isn't going through re-submit it and I'll resend it to you, no problem.
