Here's a sort of, jokey question. Not insinuating that you guys don't do anything because clearly you do a lot, but when you're not doing anything, what's your favorite way to do nothing?

Also, who is in charge of designing skins here? I've loved this places layouts since I first came here. Granted, I think they've only changed during the holidays and once overall since I joined, but they're very clean and well done. Is it a group of people, or just one person?

Only Tanks knows, he's up to him to answer it.

We have a botnet continuously reading user PMs searching for pbms.

I just hope this is a joke, why would anyone host a server on an OS optimized for mobile phones?

It's actually a server running inside a virtual machine on Tank's tablet.

 

When the forums are offline, it's actually because Tank forgot to charge the tablet.

I'm not sure about the exact time and date, but I'm pretty sure the signs would be red sky, rivers of blood, various plagues, etc.

 

Serious answer, they make changes to staff whenever they actually need to. They don't need to randomly promote people if there isn't a real reason, since having 400 staff members would be both pointless and troublesome. If they need more bodies they can promote someone who's been on staff in some capacity already. Ledby to Mod, Mod to Admin, Admin to shallow grave, etc. I mean they don't pick out randoms and make them admins with database access on the spot.

We never had so many mods as we do now so I doubt we will promote anyone any time soon.

If the Grand Theft Auto series is all about sex, drugs and violence then why has the GTAForums become a Tumblr Safe Space in the past few years?

Yes. One of the perks of being a GTAForums staff member is immortality.

Yeah, he was an admin. He asked to be banned, though, because he was going to "pursue other things in life".

Holy sh*t, Slamman was an admin? That's surprising to me, he didn't seem like the type, and lots of people always make fun of him for being creepy and strange.

How come some users have an icon in their username? Yesterday I saw an user with a checkbox in their username and a while ago I saw someone with a green controller in their username.
