Dear moderators.


I posted in the crew and gang last night and this morning I woke up to see the thread being locked.


Why is that?


The thread is here:




Thank you in advance for a reply.


Best Regards

Your topic was probably locked because you are directing people to a website where your crew is operated from, rather then operating your crew from GTAForums.


The Crews & Gangs forum guidelines specifically state that you must operate your crew from GTAForums, and not from an external website.


Edit: And what GunWrath posted below as well.

Because Crew & Gangs section is for establish crews that operate off the forums. If you're an external crew and just here to post or recruit, then you need to post that in the Recruitment subforum.


By the looks of it, your topic was locked due to that and possibly because you didn't set up your page through the Guidelines of Crews & Gangs section.


  • You must operate solely from GTAF
  • You must have a roster for your members
  • All members must be a member of the forums
  • Need an application for users to apply


If you don't wish to operate as GTAF being your home, then you must post your topic in the Recruitment forum.

Thank you very much.


Sorry for not reading the guidelines, I had no idea.


All the best.
