    Hello! I hope you've all been enjoying the new content in-game and if you haven't already heard we've got a lot more planned, especially to do with illegal RP which you can find out more about HERE. We have seen a continued increase in player numbers during this month and we hope to see this continue. In order to help us better prepare for this, we're going to be changing the structure of the admin team to fit. Most of this will be behind the scenes and this one of the main reasons we've got fewer admin promotions than normal. If there is anything more community orientated we will be sure to let you know throughout the month! Finally, I'd like to welcome @Ikechukwu and @Dominykas. back to the community, Ike has been back since the middle of the month and Dominykas reinstated today, we're all glad to have them back.

    You're not ready to come back and considering the constant trouble you got in at the time, it hasn't been long enough, you can re-appeal in another three months. Next time please expand your application a little to give me a better understanding of your improved English.

    It has been really hard keeping my mouth shut on a lot of this for the past few months as I've known just how impressive the set of 1.4 features are and how hard our developers (&especially Nervous) have been working on it! Really looking forward to playing it on the server tomorrow night. Hope to see you all there.

    I've been debating this a lot which is why it has taken me to come back to you. At this point, I don't feel comfortable with letting you back into the server. Though you've put a lot of effort into this appeal and been very patient, I don't honestly see you returning to the community and not getting yourself banned within a couple of weeks going off of your history.
  5. Hello, I hope you've all had a Happy Christmas and a great New Year. It's crazy for me to think that GTA World has been around for the whole of 2018 and we've got much more to look forward to in 2019 (maybe 0.4 will be this year). The staff team has been thinking a lot about what we want 2019 to look like for GTAW and so we are preparing many updates, both community and development related, you should expect to see some of these updates soon! This update is quite short this month as we've pushed back the support team promotions until the end of January due to the busy festive season and to allow for more people to apply, I'd encourage any active member of the community who wants to play an active role in its success to consider joining, if that interests you apply HERE I would like to congratulate all the admins who were promoted this month on their new positions and wish the whole community the best for the coming year.

  6. I'm glad you've bought a few of these things up because you've mentioned a few common misconceptions which I'd like to address. As far as your first point about weapons go, you can get weapons off of other players, however, we need a system to inject weapons into the economy, for several reasons including making sure that we don't have an over-supply and that good roleplay is conducted by deserving factions around weapons (and drugs) these suppliers are chosen. However, it isn't like the admin team hand picks their friends, every faction has the ability to apply and get chosen on their merits. To your final point about favouritism, it's clear you can't remove bias totally in any system, however, it can be reduced and by having multiple people weigh in on each supplier application we aim to do this. I don't feel that this has restricted the player base in any way. To your comments about the staff team making homophobic comments and there being racist signatures, it would be appreciated if you can report these. I only know of one case where a player had a Nazi symbol in their signature and they were banned. Nervous isn't the head of PD (I don't know where this came from?) and in terms of development time spent the PD does not have 95% of the updates, the PD has received quite a few bug fixes recently as they've been reported to us, but they've only received a couple of major additions. Most of these large additions, such as K9 and rubber bullets have come about due to us adding features for players (airsoft and pets) which can easily be adapted to give the PD more features. If you look at the last four updates I don't think they favour the PD and as I said above, any PD updates are mostly smaller fixes that take minimum development time. The majority of the development work at the moment has been going into a few very large features that aren't aimed at the PD and will hopefully be released soon. I'm sad that you feel the community has become very "cliquey", while there will be cliques in every community (it's pretty unavoidable that people will want to play with their friends more than people they don't know), the new player experience and helping new players when they interact with us across the platforms discord/forums/IG is heavily emphasised in the staff team and I'll make sure to take this advice on board when we look at more things we can do to be accommodating. As far as our plans for 2019 and what we as a staff team expect, this has been a hot topic recently and we currently have plans to make posts about these this month, both for our own staff team but more importantly externally to the rest of the community. I hope this post has helped alleviate some of your concerns, though I don't share all of your concerns and opinions we certainly do value a different perspective and management has tried very hard to be as open and transparent as possible with our players and staff team.

    I really like this, it's super interesting. Thanks for this great contribution.

    Hope everyone had a good new year and has a great 2019!

    I've thought about this quite a lot today after you alerted me to the fact that this was still outstanding, I'm finding it very hard to justify unbanning you as I really have zero reasons to believe that this time will be any different or that you will change in any way compared to the last several times you were banned/admin jailed. What assurance can you give me that me unbanning you won't lead to you being banned again in a week?

    Sad to see you go, Dom. You were a really well-respected manager who has been on GTAW right from the start, I hope you come back again soon.
  11. Hello! It's December already, so Happy Christmas period, the server has been very stable this month in terms of player base and we've reached a new record of 100 hours without a server crash or restart (expect this to continue to be broken)! I've been excited to see how engaged everyone is on the server recently, and I'd like to thank the admin team for solid activity across the board. We've got a couple of big changes this month including a reboot of Player Management, expect to see them around a lot more in December. I'll save everything else for the rest of the month. As we approach the holidays I look forward to seeing you all in-game throughout the month!

  12. You've just made this new account today, as far as I can tell you're just here to stir stuff up, we don't hide our verdicts to decisions and I'm unsure as to the exact incident you're referring to. You're clearly a disgruntled player who didn't like a decision an admin made and are now attempting to cause some drama. That isn't appreciated, as my signature says, anyone can feel free to PM me, my inbox is always open and I always happen to spend time talking to and addressing concerns from community members, even if I don't agree with their point of view all of the time. Edit by Nervous: Delinquent was Nevermore, I flagged his IP as spammer to IPBoard to avoid him ban evading easily with the same IP and it deleted all the messages from the new account. My bad!
  13. We have done some marketing before if you look at the "how did you hear about GTAW thread" you can find examples of this. In terms of current marketing, we don't believe that now is the best time to be doing that and we're looking to grow our script and work out bugs etc, through consistent updates. We have previously announced a marketing plan, which is due to take place after 0.4 (you can probably find the links in one of the "Stream Notes" threads in the archive. That will be a much more active advertising strategy from our side and involve substantial cost.
  14. This thread is starting to turn into a discussion away from the original topic. In regards to how we administrate the server and how that relates to player numbers we clearly enforce a higher standard of roleplay on all players, including faction. With our script I'm sure we could have a very large and popular light roleplay server, that's not what we're trying to achieve. We don't want to sacrifice roleplay quality at the cost of increasing the player count. If this topic doesn't get back on track I'm going to have to lock it, which will be a real shame, so please back to the original topic. EDIT: In an attempt to get this topic back on track, I've hidden the off-topic responses below mine.
