iGrandTheftAuto.com is much more than just a fan site about a video game. The website features users from quite literally all over the world, brought together by their love of Grand Theft Auto. That's why we've included a ton of community features with the website. Check them out below and get involved!
Recent Website Activity
Our Recent Website Activity will keep track of everything that registered members do on the website. Whether that be submit a news article, update a guide, post a blog or unlock an achievement. This is a great way to keep up to date with everything new that's going on with the website. You're also able to filter the recent website activity to view activity from certain categories too, and if you view a user's profile, you can view just their activity. Cool, eh?
Ok, this is something we stole from Social Networking websites like Facebook and MySpace, but so what... We allow you to update your Status on the website to let everyone else know what you're doing, or what kind of mood you're in. If you don't want to use it, no one's forcing you, but it's just another community feature aimed at making the website more accessible and friendly to everyone.
Another feature which we've taken from the likes of MySpace or Blogger is the ability for users to post their own Blogs on the website. We did originally have this function on GTAGuides.com a few years ago and it proved very popular, so we've decided to add it again. Consider your blogs your personal page on the website. Anything goes, more or less, just don't abuse your right to free speech or we'll have to remove that right from you.
New Forum Posts
Stay up to date with the latest forum going-on's with our New Forum Posts page. Here you can get links to the most 25 recently updated topics, making it even easier to jump straight in and reply to something that tickles your fancy.
The Yearbook has always been a popular feature on our forums, where members would upload pictures of themselves and we'd collate them into a sort of virtual yearbook of all of the website's members each year. Now however, we've built this feature into the site, so you can upload your own yearbook photo (and update it whenever you see fit), as well as adding a caption. You'll then appear on the yearbook page where people can click on your ugly mug to be taken straight to your profile!
It wouldn't be much of a community if we didn't share links with our fellow GTA fansites, or other friendly sites we'd like to be associated with. If you've finished reading all of the content on our site, why not visit one of our specifically chosen Affiliates and see what they have to offer. Users have the ability to upload and update their own affiliate buttons and links, so if you've got a GTA website which you'd like to affiliate with us, you're best off registering and submitting your request.
It's a list of our Members. Obviously.
Check out some generic Stats about the website, such as the total number of page views we've had, the number of people currently online, the most we've ever had online at once, and various stats about our website content, such as the most viewed or highest rates guides/images etc...
Make your votes count! Check out our Polls and vote for whichever answer applies best to you. Or just be awkward and vote for something stupid.
Check out which members are currently Online browsing the website, and how long it's been since they last did anything. Default timeout period is 15 minutes.
If the forums are too slow for you, why not jump into our live Chat Room, which you can access directly through the website (JAVA Plugin Required), or connect through a third party IRC client. We'll regularly be running quizzes in the chat room with prizes for the winner so it's not something you want to miss!
We've got a page and a group on Facebook which, if you have a Facebook account, we strongly reccommend you join. We'll post website news and updates on Facebook and we may even have an exclusive competition or two for Facebook members.
We might as well jump on the bandwagon for this too,so follow our tweets and keep up to date with, quite frankly, information you didn't need to know. You've been warned.
We'll be adding plenty of videos to YouTube for the website, so we've got our own channel, to make it easier for you to browse them. Or something.
