GTA Forums opened for business in April 2001 as a sister site to the news portal GTANet and in anticipation for the release of GTA III.

Unfortunately a server crash seven months after launch caused a prolonged outage and when the forum returned using new technology, the data from the original forum was lost forever.

 

One year later, the Forum was renamed GTA3 Forums and the first ever topic was an announcement that the new forum was live.

No one knows. Not now atleast. The data from 2001 was lost due to the server crash and was never recovered. There is no way of factually knowing it. Unless Tank remembers it ofcourse. Could have been some annoucement topic for all we know (the forum was called GTA3Forums back then).

Unless I'm mistaken the last forum census was back in 2017. Any chance of another one this year? Think it'll be nice to have one at the beginning of the decade

That's actually a very good idea.

 

It might be worthwhile posting your thoughts in the Suggestions Sub- Forum to ensure it get's noticed? 👍

Why users don't get any notification about moderators doing anything with user's content? Modyfying, hiding, etc.

Usually because staff are too busy.

 

If a topic is removed you can ask about it here.

 

If a post is removed, it's usually because its spam (like the video of the laughing man you posted in a support topic today) or it breaks the Forum Rules in some other way.

 

All you need to do is think about it. :)

I understand reasons why this happened and I have no objection about it, but automated pm would be enough, don't you think?

An excellent idea. You can post your ideas in the Suggestions Topic for our Forum Administrators to consider.

I can't see who reacted to anybody's posts. Just got a notification that "somebody" reacted to my post but it doesn't mention who and I can't find out. Also when I go to others profiles I only see their posts but not who reacted to their posts/whose posts they reacted to like I could in my previous(now deactivated) account. Is this cause my account doesn't have a certain no of posts or is it some error? 

 

Another thing, on mobile(Android) whenever I press the enter key the keyboard disappears on its own, so if I want to press enter twice for making gaps between paras I can't just press it twice directly but have to press enter once then again place the cursor and press enter. Is this only an issue for me and can it be rectified? (Hope this was clear btw)

Funny thing is it tells me which user quoted me, but as for who reacted to my posts it just says 'somebody' :dozing:

 

Also when I use smileys the page freezes/acts funny for a bit

Probably @Svip.

 

According to the search tool these users from 2001 were active in the last months of this year.

I know they said 'visit', but I think it was probably meant more to the effect of engaging.  And I don't even engage that much.  Anyway, just a little over two more years, and my account would even be able to drink in the United States.

lil weasel was a ledby, meaning that he was an actual staff, not in disguise. He used to moderate the San Andreas section.

Ever since the last forum update, there is no option for a Banned Usergroup (BUSTED!). All banned members still show up as regular members. Best you could do is ask a moderator or an admin.

In disguise means he was anonymously a ledby

Few members still get the BUSTED thing after getting banned

It was a known fact that he was ledby. He had the badge for years if I remember it correctly. Some members who get the BUSTED! badge are manually moved into the usergroup, I presume. Pretty sure an Admin can clarify this. Spider mentioned somewhere that the automated moderator ban hammer doesn't move people into the group anymore. Just debars them from permenantly using the forum.

Yep he had it 2-3 years back but later went anonymous with that

Yea users have to be manually moved to the BUSTED! group now, so it only gets done for special occasions pretty much.
