Welcome to the Recruitment Forum.
The following is based on our Gangs forum guidelines with slight modifications.
Please take a moment to completely read the forum guidelines before posting.
This section is designed for crew recruitment. If you want to talk about GTA Online in general, we have a forum for that. If you're looking to chat with other crews or see what gangs are operating on GTAForums, check out the Gangs forum.
This section is used for gang/crew recruitment. To arrange matches, leagues and competitions, check out the Events forum. The multiplayer section will gradually expand as soon as there becomes a need for more forums.
Starting/Operating a gang.
- There is no specific format for gangs to follow. You are free to run your gang however you wish. Some gangs like to have fancy layouts with graphics, background information etc. This is not a requirement! However, we request you to post some essential details - such as the platforms you play on, gang rules, and at the very least a link to your crew on the social club. We also ask that you put some effort into your opening posts. We're not asking you to write a novel of details and/or back story but we do ask that you at least write a paragraph or two describing what your gang is about and what kind of in game activities your crew participates in.
- Bumping your recruitment thread is permitted. But we ask that you limit your bumping to once a week as we understand that with the heavy influx of new crews that your thread might quickly drop off the first page. We do not on other hand want you to bump your thread with a simple "bump" post. Nor are you permitted to have multiple threads in this section. Your bump must have actual information in it, such as news or simply stating that your still looking for recruits. Don't overdue the bumping though, most members will see excessive bumping as a sign of desperation.
- You do not need to operate on GTAForums in order to post a recruitment thread. We want gangs to grow on these boards, and mingle with other gangs and the community. But we understand that gangs may prefer to operate elsewhere, especially with the massive world of GTA Online.
Joining a Gang
- You are welcome to join any gang that interests you. In case you're unable to make up your mind, you can make use of the Looking for a Gang? topic. Please don't create a separate topic for this purpose. The "Looking For a Gang?" topic ensures that free agents have a proper place to showcase themselves, without the influx of several individual threads. It also provides gang recruiters an easy platform to search for potential recruits. Also keep in mind that being apart of multiple gangs is not recommended as it usually creates problems.
- If you have any problems, please contact the area moderator(s), or report the offensive post.
- The moderating team does not mind if you socialize in your recruitment topics, but spam will not be tolerated. Remember; this is a forum, not a chatroom. Expect the same treatment for any pointless insults or downright flaming. All GTAForums Rules and Policies are effective here.
- Should any disputes arise, either between gangs, or members, a moderator will intervene if things go out of control. Do not expect a moderator to step in every time you have a petty issue.
- Respect others' freedom of choice and opinion. Please don't barge into other gang topics and tell them how to run things.
- Plagiarising layouts, graphics, codes, content and formats created by others is not condoned in any way, shape or form. Using the content of others without their consent is also prohibited.
- We do not allow any mention or form of extortion, even if it's not a requirement when applying for your gang. If your gang collects currency (real or virtual) in any manner, your topic will be locked for extortion.
- Do NOT hijack another users thread by posting a recruitment for your own crew.
- Not adhering to the forum guidelines here may cause your thread to be locked. While usually a staff member will explain why your thread has been locked this is not always the case because of the heavy flow of traffic. If it was not explained in the thread and you believe you were acting within forum guidelines simply PM a forum leader whose names are located in the bottom right of the forum section page.
- If you fail to follow the forum guidelines on multiple occasions then a staff member reserves the right to lock any and all of your threads until which point you choose to follow the guidelines.
That said, we hope you enjoy your time in the gangs forum and the multiplayer section. Our goal is to foster a self-sufficient multiplayer community, which your continued participation is instrumental in shaping. There are not many rues set in stone, which offers you maximum flexibility while running your gangs or events. Just follow the general guidelines and common sense at all times. Contact the area moderators if you have any questions.
