Hello guys, as you are all aware the GTA V section here in se7ensins is quite popular but I've noticed that a lot of the content is about people being bored or wanting more from the game.

What I have come here to ask you guys, the people who use the section is, what do you think we can do within our section to increase positive activity or the sense of community here?

I have some ideas myself on minor changes that we could make but really you guys are the people who make the section what it is. Tell me what you'd like to see within the section in order to make it better and we'll go from there.

Would you like to see more player created content being featured? Or would you like to have some form of competition or something along those lines for the best kills, stunts or videos? We are a community and your thoughts and opinions matter, I want to see the section grow, not dwindle and die.

Let us know what you enjoy about the section as well while you are giving suggestions so that we can tailor the section to the people!

Please remember that all suggestions must be within the site rules and that this is not a complaint thread.
I want to hear genuine suggestions that we can take on board, spam or off-topic messages will be deleted so please bear that in mind when posting.

The most popular ideas will be added to a poll in this thread most likely so that we can gauge who wants what. This is your chance to improve your section so let's hear it..

  • Competitions (Best kills, stunts or Videos). ✔﹖
  • A competitive Playlist (Weekly, Bi-weekly).
  • Race competitions (no contact, GTA etc).
  • Sub-section for created jobs. ✔﹖
  • Sub-section in matches for role playing.
  • Sub-section for live streams etc.
  • Multi platform game nights.
  • Lobby games (hunted, survival, protect the VIP etc).
  • A prefix for game related news articles. ✔✔
  • A dedicated thread for sharing emblems and unique emblem creations.
  • Threads for modding discussion. ✔✔
  • Glitch lobbies. (Meet-ups for glitch buddies).

Ok folks, a little update for you all..

As you will have noticed there has been a few big changes already. Firstly G GTA Sin Andreas moving up to work alongsid myself and our beloved Hulk moving on up. I thought I'd chuck a response in here to let you all know that out of our list, the news prefix has already been added and we are in discussions with regard to section competitions over in the staff area so please watch this space for a little update on that.

There are some ideas above that probably will not make the cut, for various reasons and I will list them below.
  • Race competitions (no contact, GTA etc). - These may be covered in future competitions but a dedicated running or official one is not on the cards in the near future.
  • Sub-section in matches for role playing. -This currently doesn't have high enough support within the community to be warranted.
  • A competitive Playlist (Weekly, Bi-weekly).- Currently there is not high enough demand for this on any particular platform.
  • Sub-section for live streams etc. - There is not a high enough demand for this specifically for this section.
  • Multi platform game nights.- There does not seem to be high enough interest in official game nights for any platform other than xbox one.
  • Lobby games (hunted, survival, protect the VIP etc). -These games have been added as of recently to lobbies but there is the matches section for these things already.
  • Glitch lobbies. (Meet-ups for glitch buddies) -There is too many 'security' issues with that. You guys can feel free to contact each other and arrange these, posting GT's etc publicly for these things is risky territory.
The current list of things that are yet to be discussed and may still make the in list are as follows:
  • Competitions - Currently being discussed.
  • Sub-section for created jobs.
  • A dedicated thread for sharing emblems and unique emblem creations.

A subsection for player-created content would be awesome, something along the lines of this format:
Name:
Description:
Job Type:
# Of Players:
Difficulty:
Screenshots/Images:

Competitions are something of a double-edged sword. I foresee a lot of butthurt.

I agree with the idea that competitions can be awkward, it really depends on how it is ran to be honest. The subsection for created jobs is a good idea, I didn't really think having them in the matches section was the correct area for them as well.

T The Irish Assassin :
Maybe some sort of Se7ensins GTA game night? I know this is already theoretically possible by organizing a thread in the Matches section, but almost no one actually views that section and therefore something like that does not really happen. I also agree with A Arxhive 's idea about having a section specifically for jobs.

Additionally, I believe that a step in this direction was already made just recently with the addition of the "Speculation" prefix. This brings the glitchers of GTA together in a thread working on an idea and attempting to find something useful. A small addition overall but I think it is a good one. :smile:

I'll probably post here a little later with some more ideas.

We're working on a Game Night. Don't worry. :wink:

I had been considering trying to organise a game night but really unless it has considerable support it could end up being a flop. If it were to be introduced then it would most likely have to be on several if not all the platforms and I would require someone from each (if there are no staff available or interested) to host the lobby and record etc.
Thanks for the ideas, keep them coming. This is exactly what this thread is for :smile:

I have toyed with the idea of either introducing a news prefix or having a mega news thread which could be used for official rockstar announcements etc as long as a source is provided. It would maybe even encourage aspiring writers to create some good news articles (I'd prefer the prefix as it encourages separate members to create useful threads and not just one person gets all the attention).

I know we have the 'All' prefix as is but I think news would be nice especially when we now have the buttons that allow us to select what we see based on prefixes.

What do you think?

Definitely a competitive Playlist, a couple of days every week. One day for racers, another for killers, stunters, etc... And then somewhere have a Playlist with a mix of jobs. We should have player created jobs tested and voted on to appear in that particular Playlist for that week or month.

Since the max number of jobs are 16, we should have an entry max of 32 jobs by a certain date from whoever decides to contribute.. The best 16 create the main Playlist and the other 16 can be broken up into shorter Playlist, so atleast everyone's job can be experienced.

Idk... Your idea sounds great, just a matter of fine tuning it. I think I'm a good racer and very good track creator too, I would love for others that are not my friends or friends of my friends, to have access to my creations while being able to competitively try and own someone else on their own track or job.

This may sound kind of stupid or insignificant to most members and people just visiting, but the name of this section has always bugged me. Calling this section "GTA V" pretty much narrows it down to just one game and games get old and die quick, so people move on to whats coming out next, I'm sort of getting that same feeling when I visit here. How about Instead of "GTA V" they get rid of the "V" and just call this section "GTA". It kind of broadens things up a bit. Gives more room for discussion topics.

I would just like to see more sharing of content such as emblems and such

Got a thread about sharing emblems that's locked because no one wants to share and flamers saying its not important

And to be nice to there fellow sinners

And encourage others instead of cutting them down

But honestly a few sub sections for like

Emblem creations
And custom jobs
Activity matching section

Basically all aspects of the game not just a few

I could see this really bringing this section to life and together

Also adding more prefixes like 'speculation' or 'opinions'

Invite only session

Two teams of 7

Two referees

No vehicles/planes/motorcycles/boats/helicoptors/etc (flying saucers and bicycles are the exception.)

Each team starts at opposite ends of a city/district and have to eliminate the other team. First team to get to however many kills wins. Only allowed the ammo you joined with. Maybe make a ladder/team ranking/leaderboard system... sign up in groups of 7s:whistle: Maybe if a certain player gets a kill streak they're allowed a Pegasus vehicle until it gets destroyed. All lester/lamar/merry weather services available to use whenever if you have access.

Sort of like an organized free roam team death match.

You could also make one person "the president" and have to escort them on foot to a certain place while one or more teams try to take "the president" and other teams out.

I don't know if jobs can be created like that.

Maybe have different weekly snapmatic contests of scenery/cars/events/the ocean/whatever.

Arm wrestling leaderboard

Darts leader board

Golf leader board

Fist fight leader board (character gender separated, maybe level bracket separated for health reasons) best of 7

Melee weapon fight leaderboard (possible same restrictions as above.) Best of 7

Pistol and musket dueling leader board. In free aim invite only lobby. Like the old west days where they would take 10 steps or whatever and turn 180 degrees around (360 if you live under a bridge) and fire.

Demolition derby! Unmodded street cars only!

Gta role play section for groups who are interested.

Trying to think of things with replay value and community involvement.

I like this se7ensins lobby idea...

Invite only treasure hunt?
Find certain vehicles for points, bring to a point on the map to verify... Say lsc car park?
Snapmatic for evidence of finding a npc like a fireman smoking or a police officer driving a blista compact.
2 referees and most points in an hour to win?

Invite only fugitive,
One person is the fugitive, 9k bounty on them and the rest of map hunts with pistol.
Fugitive has choice of weapons.
Longest time alive wins.

As for the site itself I find it easy to navigate and find what I'm looking for, it's mostly lack of original topics to talk about without rehashing topics already discussed. I love this game, but I can't find anything original any more....

Curse my lack of imagination!

Maybe we can host weekly race tournaments and have different divisions. Standard, GTA, No contact and such. Winner gets a title or something to hold until next tournament so people have something to fight for? Just an idea of course

More modded ps3 lobbies. Xbox and pc players are living in a monsoon season right now for cash drops. The ps3 community has Pianist, Joshy, Restraint is active here and there and OG Lion was doing it for a bit. Some gta (not always 5) contests. Maybe a weekly 50/50 draw. I like the idea of making it a gta in general section.

We can't really pull modders out of our bum but your response is noted :smile:

To those wanting a GTA section rather than GTA V, what are you going to discuss? We already have a GTA IV section in the games library and GTA VI is no where near. When it is a section will be created for it.

I would like to donate my Track to the Inaugural 7sins Community Custom Race Playlist.

Name: Bypath Synapse

Description: Very technical track, built for the expertise CONTACT driver that knows how to harness and manipulate slip stream(if desired) without catchup, while picking and choosing your spots to pass your fellow equal who thinks the same, without unrelentlesly deciding lines and unwarranted moves for them. Nice non-contact line track for those that don't trust others to respect their space... Enjoy. #asphalt munchies

Job Type: Race Track

#of Players: 30

Difficulty: Hard
