The not I think Scott it, the more if be in favour for charging play online. It would all but eliminate these kids. Unless they had rich parents of course


Paying 1.00$ a month doesn't mean you're rich. Plus if the forum means so much to you than your social life must be dead. Pretty sad Imo

Nah, I wouldn't. Besides, we all know that most of the kids/trolls on here would just beg their parents for a monthly subscription to this site, so that wouldn't necessarily rid the forum of them.

If even one squeaker left it would be worth it.

I guess you all haven't heard of the premium accounts.


Does that block all squeakers?

 

I have that setting tuned off so I can moderate GTAO.

Anyone who plays this game should be 18 or over with access to a little disposable income. You paid $60 or whatever for the game didn't you? If you didn't, it's likely that your (crappy) parents bought it for you when they shouldn't have.

If you can't spare a few dollars a year, you're Likely a child who shouldn't be playing anyways


I'm really glad I'm not your kid. You never played/saw anything whilst under an age limit? I don't believe that for a second. I got the first GTA at 13, my parents were far from crappy.

Self righteous, narrow minded pricks like you are worse than ANY kid playing this game.

I don't get why you can't just ignore them? It's not hard. I never have problems with 'Squeakers' online, letting them get to you is pretty pathetic imo. Just mute them if they are that much of a hassle. It's the same case on this forum, just ignore comments/threads you don't like or don't interest you. That's what I do. Plus, there are some very friendly and nice members on here, most I've encountered have been friendly.

 

I don't pay for memberships online. I've never bought Netflix or anything like that, because I don't just throw my money around. I certainly wouldn't pay for GTA Online, that would be ridiculous and not worth it right now imo. Especially on Next Gen where you have to pay for a membership as well, and also 360.

when I was a kid. I didn't act like a complete moron like most of these ones do. Just read the speculation thread from this morning. Utter nonsense.

If I wanted to do adult things I was expected to act like an adult.

I just don't like the sort of people who bang on about kids/getting rid of kids. What does it matter to you how old some faceless being on an online game is? If you're sad enough to have a problem, there's a mute button. If you assume adults will pay for this forum and it will 'improve' it, then you are mistaken.

If you wanted to do adult things you were expected to act like an adult? I'm sorry but have you played any GTA games at all? They're the most childish games out there. Dick jokes everywhere etc. The sort of thing the vast majority of teenage boys love and joke about. 'Most' kids aren't morons on here, you've probably played with less than 1%.

Seriously ugotsmoked and Nelson Van Alden, just get the hell over it. There's going to be people you dislike (in your case little kids playing GTA) but all you have to do is ignore them. I thought you'd be "mature" enough to do that instead of bitching about how you have to spend two seconds scrolling past a thread or reply that doesn't fit your taste.

Does GTAForums actually have a Premium service? I'd pay for that.

 

All of GTAForums being behind a paid subscription service would result in a huge amount of user losses but a Premium Service would give GTAF lots of money all while keeping their user base.

No, it doesn't, obviously.
E: GTAF makes money from ad revenue, as most websites.

No.

 

And if you don't like someone, simply block/ignore them, that's what the feature is there for.

this is a place for fun and to make friends over something we enjoy, not all of us can just pay to speak even if its only a dollar

 

@smoked

you really want to break a bunch of friendships just because you dont like trolls? is that it? quite selfish indeed

Well, since this is at the top I can post without bumping this...thing.

 

Xbox live gold account.

You have to pay a subscription fee for this.

 

If you didn't get that the first time round: xbox live requires a subscription.

 

Now, does a subscription really reduce a number of 'children' on a service?

 

Oh, plus what you're thinking of is immaturity - there are people below the age of 18 on here who don't smear their faeces on their computer screen. There are many people above the age of 18 who act like that is the done thing. If you could just  you need a GTA Forums premium account to see this content (pardon my french) and realise that a) kids can get subscriptions without their parents batting an eye and b) age isn't maturity, that would be great.

LOL @ the people bragging about having jobs and that "if you don't have a few bucks to spare you shouldn't be here in the first place"  

Got two words for ya: F-U.

 

I got a job and i make money.  I got rent, insurance, bills to pay and i need food to live off of.  I have a sister and mother who depend on me sometimes to help them out.  Times are HARD.  If GTAF became a "you have to pay to access" kind of thing, you will never see me again.  Same reason i do not have an xbox or xbox live, nor do i have a PS4 because i just can't afford to shell out the extra money for online gaming right now.  So please, GTF over yourselfs, stop acting like self righteous sh*ts, you're no better than anyone.  Not even better than the "squeakers" and children you yearn to get away from so badly.
