Thanks for the feedback.

The idea is so that people don't find old articles and start posting in them, causing who knows what kinds of trouble. News has been dead for a while and we haven't posted anything lately, meaning the articles on the homepage hit their allotted lifespans. I don't think it's much of a problem - I'd rather have the comments locked on the homepage during the slow points in the GTA timeline than have people posting random stuff on old articles.

Front Page comments get locked automatically after One Month, so yeah, we don't have any news to post right now sadly.

Hey, that's cool. I wasn't trying to be mean or anything. I understand.

(And how could I seriously avoid this site for six months? That would be defeating my own purpose...)



Later.

AND ANOTHER THING...

Seriously -- this is the first and only site that I turn to for GTA-related news. I've seen many others over the last ten years, and this is the only one that I feel does justice to the brand.

Keep up the great work, guys. When everything else in my life is crap, the one thing that I can turn to to blow off some steam is GTA. Your site reminds me of that.

(By the way -- I'm a musician who plays electronic, classical, new-age, and jazz -- all at the same time, believe it or not. I LOVE the videos that you occasionally post here with various tunes put to various different GTA games. When I'm ready, I may create such a video on my own. If I do, you'll be the first to know about it.)

Later.

Just one thing, why GTA Gaming doesn't have comment on mods download?

We have it on our updated site for GTA4: http://www.gta4-mods.com. There are no plans to bring it to the San Andreas section.

I made a thread about the quality control of mods on here, particularly allowing the posting of mods that contain improper or incomplete descriptions. I'm a bit saddened to see my point wasn't heard out. There are still countless mods being added each month which do not contain enough information in the description and lack pics/videos when such is needed.

Example:
http://www.gta4-mods.com/textures/chicago-taxis-f23476/

Please do be more stingent with what's allowed on here as there are already way too many mods, it's overwhelming to stay updated on the new ones when so many of them are not described effectively.

I'd also suggest making a very obvious note at the upload page that if such requirements are not met, the mod will not be approved.

Cheers.

There's quite a bit of quality control already, which you wouldn't see because those mods don't get approved. It's hard cracking down on every single thing, especially when a link or credit is missing. That's what the reporting feature is for - and I know you use it, so thanks. We'll keep in mind better quality control when approving mods.

http://www.gta4-mods.com/script/sile...v2-beta-f23745 - Removes weapon sound and adds silencer sound... no video showing off how it sounds

http://www.gta4-mods.com/textures/vo...ational-f23711 - 99% of mods are in English. All the non-English speakers make an effort to try and post there mods in English (cromchen great example). There is no reason he couldn't either.

http://www.gta4-mods.com/weapons/rea...-damage-f23691 - Weapons.xml modifications, no video to actually show off modifications, no description that breaks it down piece by piece

http://www.gta4-mods.com/script/force-field-f23705 - It's a force field. That's all the information we get.

http://www.gta4-mods.com/script/zombie-script-f23304 - Once again clearly the type of mod that requires vids or pics at the very least to show it off.

This is the last time I'll post about this because I'm sure it's getting annoying now, and if I annoy you guys my point will be lost. I just feel like I'm completely wasting my time reporting these mods. I know you're saying there is quality control but when I can come here week by week and post a list of mods without proper explanations, I'm not sure how you can justify that statement.

Anyways not trying to make a big deal of this or anything, it's just creating a lot of clutter on the site and I end up having to "pick and choose" which mods I click on because of how rubbish so many are (or their descriptions are).

Cheers and have a good day.

Not everybody needs a video before they download, and not all mod authors have the time or ability to make a video. That's why I added the feature to allow users to post videos - some don't need to see one before downloading, and those that do might feel compelled to contribute a video to the site for the mod author. I'm not trying to argue with you, obviously a video on every mod would be a really great thing, but I'm just trying to rationalize my approvals.

I don't have a problem with mod descriptions or comments in other languages - the site is supposed to be international, hence the ability to translate the UI.

A video is necessary?
