why are .gifv files "not allowed"?


The forum software doesn't support the file type.


It was discussed here but never implemented: http://gtaforums.com...or-gifv-format/

Removing the V from the gifv. should make the gif work just fine

Is it true the backgrounds of this forum are blue because blue "sells better" ?

I believe blue is a calming colour, apparently that's one of the reasons it's Facebook's primary colour, at least that's what I heard anyway. Could be similar thinking at play here maybe.

The calming blue allows for more effective masking of our subliminal messaging service. The special glasses provided to staff filter out most of the hidden stream.

Can we have the xmas theme back? I always thought that was very subtle and calming.

When making a thread, on the right you can click the "manage topic poll" under "Poll" and go from there, which also works when editing existing topics.

I've always really loved the blue on this forum. I do find it calming, easy on the eye. I left other forums because I wasn't getting the same tranquil vibe that I get from this  forum. White text looks great on it as well as pink colours. 

 

The hex code is #2b4255 for the colour. 

 

Blue is the most chosen colour by businesses around the globe for their logos and themes and blue is also the world's favourite colour.

It's in celebration of LGBT Pride Month and in face of all the people who keep reporting members with gay kissing avatars as "offensive" and "disgusting" and that we should ban them from the forums (even though they don't break our rules and no one reports bouncing tits/ass avatars).

 

I mean, isn't that the reason why you've been wearing yours? :]

It is a pretty big one.

 

That being said, @Kirsty if i am gonna be honest here i just took that picture because of me specializing in an overkill of edgy facile bullsh*t last week...

Admitting that one, if anyone feels like i need to remove that, i will, once i get sobered up because i pretty much have needed to correct my texting in this reply several times now because i am not really "clear" atm, thus changing a picture is kinda hard.....really, yoj got no idea how much time it costed me to actually uplaod that picture...

That being said, does that mean i became a trend setter now ? wow...that is quite ironic.

 

ehm, i feel like i needed to say something else but i just do not remember...guess i will just assume it ain't important.

We do check regularly and clean up quote trains in the most active threads, but of course we can't see everything - so reports are always most welcome.

Looks like someone reported it as a duplicate account and it got banned.

When I was in the process of making a topic, I noticed that there was the option to add tags to the topic. Was that feature always there or was it recently added? I don't remember seeing it with the last topic that I created months ago.

looks like they added tags and it looks like they removed the 'eavesdropping' feature :lol:

 

at the bottom of the screen it used to say how many people were viewing a topic or lurking in a particular forum.

it would list their user names. or just how many 'private' users and guests were browsing.

It was added quite a while ago and is only a feature of certain forums (Crew Chat, Find Lobbies, Recruitment etc). 

 

When adding tags it needs to be remembered that they don't show up on the mobile version of the forum.
