I'm a former member of this forum dating back to spring 2001 around the release of GTA3 under the name "Warsaw". Been playing this series since the original. You could say i grew up on the violence that is Grand Theft Auto considering I've loved every game since I was 9 years old. Was a regular for years here and and helped a lot of people in the graphics department. This was over ten years ago, now I'm 25 and have found myself back again before the release of GTA5, coming everyday five to ten times a day just like old times. Not seeing many familiar faces, but then again it's been probably 8 to 9 years since I last posted here regularly so I'm not sure if I'd recognize them. Anyway great to be back and beyond excited for GTA5.

Welcome back! It's good to see the oldies returning. Your old username, "Warsaw", sounds familiar for some reason. I may have seen you in some older topics that I was viewing.

Well he said Spring 2001, not 2002. Spring 2001 was basically the opening of GTAF tho tounge.gif

Anyway, never seen you before but welcome back!

That's me. Apparently my dates were a little off. I browsed the forums for months before registering. Long time ago but I definitely don't remember getting busted! I was 14 years old so who knows what kind of shenanigans I was doing.

And thanks for the welcome back's!! icon14.gif icon14.gif

I couldn't remember my email and password I used back in the day so I didn't think my old Warsaw account was still around, anyone know if it's possible to be taken off busted and resume using that account? There must be a forgiveness policy somewhere. Besides, I'm a grown adult now that has better things to do then give random Internet people grief.

People can get grief over the internet? The more you know.

Welcome back. On the internet, 2002 was a LOOOOOOOONG time ago.

I've been here for almost six years now, and I feel that's a very long time ago.

Welcome back. I think there was another member who came back from the early days recently. I think it's "Gta3freak2001" or something along those lines.

You could perhaps request an unbanning, it'd be a nice touch to have your original account back I think.

Man how crazy is it coming back after 10 years.

No. He was a forum leader that passed away over a full year ago. Very sad stuff for the community. sad.gif

I know who you're talking about, but the guy I'm referencing had a very similar name to his, but he changed it because he forgot the password to his old account. He used to go by "GTAFreak2001".

It's good to be back on the forums. And I guess you should resume your old account. Man 10 years of complete inactivity and yet the rising of another sun. icon14.gif

The place is a shrivelled husk compared to its former self.

I think it was the removal of Public Gang Chat that just killed everything decent about the forum.

So expect to see hordes of brainless cretins.

Wow no more PGC?? That's crazy as it was a huge part of this forums soul. I guess probably because it was before there was MP and it was our only way to have clans/gangs/alliances. I have noticed there are more trolls now then there used to be and unnecessary rudeness.

I think it just got out of hand for the staff.

There were always sh*t kicking off and I think on one occasion they had to suspend the forums for a few hours to sort sh*t out.

Either way from what I remember it was just "a hastle" for them.

It is a stupid reason, that forum gave life to alot of the forum and a lot of members earnt their respect in there. It groomed people into decent quality members.
