At the end of the day, we are honoring Rockstar's request to us for the sake of being respectful to their work and to the huge majority of the community. Yes there was a lot of people online, but not everyone wanted to be spoiled and some even entered it feeling as if they had no control. Why do we want to be responsible for this? As well as it essentially being hacked content because you're looking/listening at something you didn't pay for and that is unreleased.

I'm sure, for those that are complaining, they are other places you can discuss openly, but at the end of the day if we continued to allow it here then we risk losing the community.

By Monday, we will be at 3 weeks exactly. That's nothing compared to how long we've waited for this. GTA V will be an amazing game and you know deep down that knowing spoilers takes some of that spark away.

You are just kissing their ass.
They had no legal right to do anything to the owners of gtaforums, you could've just told them to shove their request.

Seems legit considering the content from the leak was obtained via getting into the game files which R* owns.

Also seems legit that the biggest GTA fan forum would in essence bite the hand that feeds them by telling R* to shove it.

I swear, I am almost hoping some of you find another forum so we don't have to see you here.

How in the hell is rockstar paying them? Does rockstar own this piece of sh*t forum?
Dumb kid.

So Rockstar is paying the mods to take down threads about leaks on a forum they don't own?

By the mods logic, you can might as well delete the mapping thread now - since it was "tainted" by the map outline from the achievements list. I'd call that a leak.
I hope they don't do it, but wanted to point out that there's probably >50 shady grey areas when it comes to this.

It's not solely the mod's logic here.

R* requested it to be taken down and they respected that.

I swear half of you people cannot read or comprehend what you read.

My point is still relevant, but ok, let me rephrase.

Since the mods bends over backwards to R* (which I don't have any thoughts on one way or another), they might as well delete the mapping thread because it is tainted by the map outline leak.

They have every right when the content they own is being cracked and distributed to people before the release date who haven't even paid.

This isn't kissing ass, this is called respect.

Thank you for the update but this will just make spoilers in the V section much more prominent. At least with the sub forum it contained most of it. The mods while doing a good job can be slow to act when spoilers present themselves so in short this place isn't as safe as it was before. I understand R* wanting damage control but as others have said it's to late. I just hope I don't run into any spoilers on this forum. I haven't yet and would like to keep it that way.  ph34r.gif


Not sure if this is possible from a technical point of view with this concrete forum, but it would be good to soften the blow and to allow users participate in moderation.

Let's say if 3-5 users click "report" on post/thread, this post/thread becomes invisible

I never said they were paying them, you impatient child.

It's a phrase. This is a GTA forum....R* creates GTA....connect the dots. If they refuse R*'s request that effects their relationship.

I swear some of you are truly stupid. I have never seen the level of stupidity as I have seen here. If you are so impatient that you cannot wait 23 more days, get off the forum and go find a new one. Bitching here isn't going to do anything.

The existence of GTA is the very reason this forum is even here. See it as a singer requesting a fan forum to delete leaked lyrics.

Rockstar likely did this because reviewers are now receiving their copies and posting the intro online because that's all they can show without the video being removed

A reviewer posted the entire intro online? Is this true?

Also, deleted my audio_radio mp3. That's my dedication to your cause. Keep kicking smile.gif

Kindly rest your case, your overreaction is not helping anyone, there are sources elsewhere if you can't wait like everyone else can.

I never said R* owned the site. They do have a relationship with R*, the admins get invited to R*'s pre-release events, I do believe. That's one aspect of it.

Keep getting mad. Maybe if you get mad enough they will magically open the spoiler sub-section again and tell R* to shove it.

You are calling me a child and an idiot yet you fail to grasp basic concepts and are in here spouting off like the impatient child that you are. BOO HOO they took down the leaks. :`(

Seriously, go find another GTA site.

Guess that whole Spoiler section experiment didn't work out then.

At least now we won't have mods selectively editing/deleting "leak" posts.

Thank you, staff! Fortunately I was only exposed to one spoiler. Nothing really that big, but I still would have liked to not know about it.

Never understood why people like spoilers anyway. It just ruins it for you.

Rockstar several times have arranged all expense paid trips to new york for the admins here to preview their games.

It's not about kissing their ass. They forum is a friend of the rockstar company. Mutual respect for another.

There may be some spoilers, if you are the one that are going by over ~100 hour audio to find all the songs from radio stations.

And quick question to mods, is "Spoiler Discussion via PM" are not allowed as well? Because I have found out the REAL and legit theme for GTA V... ph34r.gif moto_whistle.gif inlove.gif inlove.gif inlove.gif

Don't see it happening though. This forum as of late seems to be more bothered about flexing mod authority and making things worse. Then helping the community and making things better. I suppose running into spoilers is a risk we all take by been here so partly our own fault but things like this don't help matters. I do understand the reasoning though and respect the admins/mods respecting R* wishes. I just wish to see better changes then bad decisions.
