A lot of things is going on General Chat lately. Miromiro's GTANetwork-Newbies Guide
got pinned but it was unpinned after a while for some unknown reasons. New topics were created. Some were even locked. On August 19, ilir opened a new topic wishing the muslim members "Eid-ul-Fir". Some people were confused and wondered what it is actually. This confusion turned out into a huge argument. No one knows what caused the argument. Finally, Waddy
locked it to put an end to the arguments. There was also a topic called 'Commom things' opened by Ferocious Banger. But, it got locked as well due to some unknown reasons.
Two members namely Jimmy_leppard and Ferocious Bagnger opened 2k and 1k milestone threads respectively. Iminicus opened a thread last week. It's about the donations to build a museum to one of the great scientist Nikola Tesla. If you'd like to donate, please visit this thread

This week has been a big week in the GTA V forum, with the release of six new screenshots within two days (which can be found here
) and Max Payne 3 marketing winding up on August 31st. With all the hype coming back there's been a huge influx of new threads regarding topics such as graphics, radio, theme parks and even whether tennis will or won't be a mini-game.Carl CJ Johnsons Brother Brian's
'GTA V Will Be Released Before March' thread (which can be found here
also continues to be highly active, with more and more theories arising about the financial stakes of Take Two Interactive and whether or whether not it is even possible
for the game to be released then. It is certain
that this must be one of the most detailed and well thought-out threads in the forum.
With four of the six new screenshots that contain a vehicle the GTA V Vehicle Database (which can be found here
) has again been updated by the thread creator LCstuntman
. Thumbs up to him for putting the effort into that.LethalCrizzle's
thread regarding what the next screenshots will be (that can be found here
) is another thread that continues to grow in size. Things that people want to see include, cars, boats, animals and even weather.
A brand new sub-forum has also been added to the GTA V forum. It is called "Official News" and can be found here
. It is strictly
for official news straight from the Rockstar Games Newswire
. At time of writing there is still only 12 threads, but with GTA V marketing beginning next week this number is subject to increase dramatically.
It's been a big week in the GTA V forum. Next week is shaping up to be even bigger...Source
