According to that thread it seems that something had been following him around for days, that was the thread which made gtaforums famous, there's a video too:
 

 

Those photos are from the early 2000's back when, you couldn't edit photos like you can now with photoshop so it might be true. Creepy.

Universetwisters seems to have finally got bored of making topics, however this comes at a cost, a circle jerk with Trinette.

 

He made a topic about Slippery telephones and was talking to Trinette specifically in his posts, Trinette was quick to notice and the circle jerk continued. So from 'Topic making mania' universetwisters has moved on to 'Circle jerking mania'. Of course it's a bit annoying but it'll die down eventually.

 

 

Hope you all enjoyed the show the two of us put on. But now that V came out, I don't really need to make that many topics, so I'm, you know, actually contributing to the rest of the forums.

 

Speaking of making topics, anyone hear from greenrock? I remember he'd use to make all these topics back when V wasn't out yet, and I haven't seen him since V came out.

GTAForums Trivia:

 

Do you know that a member on GTAForums found a strange camera in the woods sometime back in 2005? Yes it was real and not fake. Apparently there were strange terrifying photos inside the camera, of ghosts and stuff. the topic does not exist anymore but it is in the archive, here is the link:

 

http://web.archive.o...pic=144008&st=0

 

The pictures are here on another forum too:

 

http://forums.beyond...60&postcount=13

 

 

According to that thread it seems that something had been following him around for days, that was the thread which made gtaforums famous, there's a video too

I did some research and found this: http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?s=dd6ab5d9a1ad056dc3d7869e2b011934&threadid=1194390&perpage=40&pagenumber=1

 

It's the same thread from GTAF, except it was posted about 16 hours before the one on GTAF was. (http://i.imgur.com/3QJtvlg.png)

 

Also,

bummer :/

 

If it makes you feel any better GTAF was possibly the first small forum to get it as copypasta, and it probably did do something for GTAForum's "popularity."

 

(e: Also I'm sorry that I keep coming in here and only posting dickish corrections to things you say each issue; I like the newsletter, I really do.)

Yeah I just did a bit more research too and found that it first originated on some other forum and yes photo shop was there years ago but that was after I posted the issue.

Surprise? Well yeah that was the whole point ha ha. So anyways let's get down to business with the 11th issue of GTAFW. Highlights of this issue include:

 

PC gamers are yet to see the light of GTA V: With 2013 coming to a close, PC gamers are now visibly frustrated by the lack of GTA V PC news. Take a look at the latest gossip from the new PC discussion thread.

 

Gen-Chat drama continues!: V may have released but Gen-Chat's drama remains intact.

 

New Moderators! Yes the staff team has seen a big revaluation, read on for the details.

 

Enjoy.

PC gamers are visibly frustrated by the lack of GTA V for PC news info. This has resulted in not only frustration but also derailment of the PC topic itself. Mods decided to do some damage control by starting a new thread, however the frustration carried on to the new thread as well. With many pages of discussion sprawling down the drain and getting infested by trolls. The PC gamers (like me) are now even more frustrated.

 

GTA:Online players have endured similar frustration in the form of hackers, rendering the game unplayable. Rockstar have confirmed that they are on working on it.

 

The GTA V section continues to remain as a Capital Wasteland with many trolls coming out of the Vault to invest in the section. Everything from V fanboys to SA fanboys have made their homes in the section so be sure to watch your step should you dare venture out into the Wasteland.

 

All in all it's been a bad ride for the V section overall. Let's hope the trolling decreases in the coming months.

The moderating team has undergone a big big revaluation. With some mods being promoted to 'Senior Mods' many new picks joined the fray as well. Here is the full list of newly promoted mods and Forum Leaders:

 

V Section: Fuzzknuckles, Wildbrick142, Andreas and Raavi.

Movies and TV: geobst, darthYenik

GTA:O: Fuzzknuckles, Ciaran.

GFX Sections: Graven

Web Design: Trip

WD: Mokrie Dela.

 

New moderators: Tyler, Prometheus, Vanzant, Spuds725 sivispacem and Deffpony.

 

Congrats guys.

Gen-Chat continues it's high drama roller coaster ride. With many new members joining up. Frustration is visible from the older members about the lack of good topics of late and theadmiral did not help things.

 

By starting out a topic titled 'Showering at night' or whatever the hell that was. She got into an argument with Audiophile and accused some of the people of gender discrimination. A lot of members joined in the fun, not to mention Girish himself took a backseat. Meanwhile the 'post a fact about the person above you' thread stretched to breaking point. With many new members repeatedly spamming up the place until Deffpony stepped in to lock up the fun.

 

Despite the drama however Gen-Chat has seen some of it's older members return, some of them:

 

Panz

Linc. (lzw3)
Dr. John13

 

And a few more.

 

Overall Gen-Chat continues to lie somewhere between a trolling area and a neutral area. However some good topics of discussion were opened up as well including the 'Does everyone in life contemplate suicide atleast once?'.

 

That's all of interest here.

GTA addiction. And yes you can come. I thought I'd do this issue on my own since it was mainly focused on reviving the topic.

I feel like a celebrity or something.  

 

...I think I made it seem like I'm more against littering than I really am. I won't go scream at a stranger or take a kid's ice cream cone away for littering or anything. It just irks me a bit and I really got into the discussion is all. But thanks. I appreciate the support. :^:

You do realise you are "hating" on the work of a 13 year old, right? 

 

OT: Good job, fun read. I would like this to be a weekly something.

Well I think we should put an end it to it here incase she comes and says that we are discriminating her by gender. Don't want this thread to be derailed. :)

Good to see this back again, perhaps you should get a recruitment drive going and get some new content writers to make things more interesting and varied. Maybe weekly will be a bit much for everyone though.

Yeah, it is wrong.

 

This forum is great. I have people calling me [s]he in multiple threads, multiple PMs in the past couple of days demanding proof of my gender combined with threats to call me a "He/She" until I provide it, people telling me "tits or GTFO", people telling me I have a penis.

 

Only on GTA forums. Hey Ace, you should include all of this in your next GTAforums weekly.


"This just in , people are going to insult theadmiral over her gender until she provides pictures on a sleazy forum, which will then lead to more insults, stupid remarks, and unsolicited private messages"
