Introducing the "News" section...
Traditionally, the GTA Network has established a leading fansite at the launch of every Grand Theft Auto game. They're all still there and they all still contain valuable resources, but over the last few years we admit that time has been spread very thinly between us to the point where development of GTA V and GTA Online dedicated resources has been pretty much non-existent. We'll be working on this in 2017, but for now we apologise, you'll forgive us won't you...?
All of our focus has been on maintaining GTAForums, which is the beating heart of the GTA Network and has more than earned its place as one of the biggest GTA community forums on the Interweb, even after all these years. We're built on the unadulterated opinions of GTA fans and have grown organically into a community that provides a free-flowing commentary for our guests and instils a loyalty in our members that keeps them coming back for more. I mean, the place might also be rampant with bitchers, moaners and casuals making unrealistic demands, and a week doesn't go by where our Moderators aren't accused of power abuse, but you get the point.
Anyway, I digress. We'd like to start highlighting the community (you guys) more for the time and effort you put into sharing your ideas, thoughts and creations here. Your activity keeps us going and we do value that, so we've created this News section to give a little back. We know it's basic right now and the foundations we've laid might look a little bit like a Newswire re-hash at the moment, but as time goes on the plan is to organise it a little better and flesh it out more to become a feed of official news, spotlight topics, interviews and showcases that originate from within the GTA community. We'll also hopefully have some contests for (real) prizes and goodies along the way.
We're aware the likes of Twitter and YouTube can be saturated with news updates and that's more popular these days, so we're not trying to compete with that, we know we're never going to be first in getting news out there, but that isn't really our goal. This is just a new venture for GTAForums so were going to carry on anyway and see how it goes. If you don't want to click into this section, simply ignore it. No one here gets paid, so theres no pressure and no clickbait.
If you're interested in supporting us, then drop by sometime, have a read and post a comment. Let us know if you have any tips, feedback, ideas or want to volunteer going forward.
N.B. This section isn't a traditional subforum, but it will be moderated to our official rules. We welcome comments, but we still encourage people to use the linked dedicated topics in the relevant subforums for actual discussion.
