New Forums


Recommended Posts

Well I'd like to be the first to welcome everybody to the new TheGTAPlace Forums. We have legitimately bought and purchased Invision Power Board v2.0.4, so your forum experience will be enhanced, and we can't get sued.

In this upgrade, we have added:

New skins

New emoticons

XML archiving

Rich Text Editor (Per user)

User email validation then admin approval

RSS overhaul (import / export functionality)

Multiple Option Polls

DST (Daylight Saving Time) auto correction

Implementation of new moderation and warning systems

There will inevitably be some bugs and things we have to iron out in the next couple of days, but just let us know if you spot anything. A new logo is currently being designed, and new skin sets edited. Thanks to our indispensible team of moderators, admins, members, fans and random people who help out occasionally, in a few days, TGP Forums will be like you've never seen them before!

The gang system, image uploader and GTA store will all be returning in the next day or two. Chris has been working hard to convert them from IPB 1.3 to 2.0.4, and finally this long-planned upgrade can be executed.

In fact, these forums are everything you saw on the old forums, plus the advantages of the actual forum upgrade, plus the advantages of a slightly shifted system of administration and moderation, plus the advantages of a freshly designed skin (soon), plus the advantages of whatever we throw at you over the next few days.

Have fun with it, but don't break it. Its new, its shiny, its even secure, but its still delicate. :thumbsup:
