I was poking around the support site, and , well, I'll just paste it here. It might not fix whats already done, but it may prevent some of the future problems. I want to believe in GTA Online.

Quote:
Question: My online character, rank, items, apartments, and/or cash are suddenly missing. How can I get them back?

Answer: We have received reports from some players who experienced losing characters, progress, items, and/or in-game cash during the first few days after release. We are working diligently to identify and correct the causes for these losses, as well as to establish how best to restore any lost progress and value. If you would like to receive an automatic email notification as soon as there is more information about this, please log into the Support Site and click Subscribe at the top of this page. You do not need to do anything else at this time.

Note: When the Rockstar Cloud Services are unavailable, you are given the option to still play online on disc-based content (rather than R* Cloud content). You are asked to confirm before entering Multiplayer whether you would like to play on a temporary character, without the ability to save. If you confirm this option, please note that none of your old characters will be available for that play session, and the temporary character you create will not be saved.

In other words, your character slots will be blank during a cloud outage but your characters have not been deleted. Back out to Story Mode and re-enter GTA Online when Cloud servers are up again so your characters can load.

If you want to make sure the characters you create are saved, you should not proceed into GTA Online when the R* Cloud Servers are unavailable. Even if the services come back up while you are playing on a temporary character, that temporary character will not save -- you would need to return to Single Player and re-enter GTA Online to load your non-temporary characters and resume playing with the ability to save progress.

Note: When exiting GTA Online, please pause the game and choose to return to Single Player. This will trigger a save and ensure that progress since the last auto-save is recorded. If you purchase items and immediately power the console off or exit through console system menus, those items may not be saved.

Note: Please do NOT use the “Retry” button after receiving the message “Rockstar Cloud Servers are unavailable” as this may result in loss of character data. If you are trying to access GTA Online and Rockstar Cloud Servers are unavailable, please exit to GTAV Story Mode and try entering GTA Online again through the Pause menu in Story Mode. We will be issuing a title update that will fix this issue as soon as possible.

Updated 10/6/13: We are continuing to investigate the causes of the lost progress and what can be done to minimize the impact until a permanent fix is in place. Also, we have not forgotten about the requests for restoration. We are in the process of determining the options for addressing the issues for those players who have been affected. Please stay tuned for further updates here.

Updated 10/8/13: If you have previously created a character but see an empty character selection screen when entering GTA Online, please back out to GTAV Story Mode and try re-entering GTA Online through the pause menu (repeat or wait until Rockstar cloud servers are back up). Do not create a new character in the empty slot where your character should be.

If you receive the message 'The Rockstar Cloud Servers Are Unavailable', please return to GTAV Story Mode and follow the steps above. Please do not press “Retry” on the message and do not proceed online with saving disabled, as this may lead to overwriting your existing character.

We apologize for this inconvenience and are working on a permanent fix for these issues
I guess I should have checked the front page first.

I think that's already been posted or at least the main points highlighted.

I would love nothing more than to watch a creepy guy hit on me and talk about bread and cheese and lettuce and is actually referring to money.

I lost my rank 17 character a couple days ago, although my banked money still accounted for (unfortunately after I had just spent most of my money on a garage).

Although yesterday my antsy-ness got the better of me and I created a new character, although using slot 2 rather than "overriding" my vanished slot 1 character. I'm curious if by having used this method I should have any lucky having my original restored despite R*'s advice in not creating a new character, despite not having specified whether applicable to all or particular slots.

Well I had lots of fun tonight playing with a few people from here. Was a good laugh.

Tell you what is frustrating though and that's being taken out on the first lap by someone who decides to side swore you and boom. That's it. Race over no catching up. The amount of times that happened was so annoying tonight.

Yeah that happened to me alot too, Im starting to hate that whatever it's called when you drive behind someone so you get closer. Every time I'm in the number 1 spot some jackass uses that to catch up to me then pull the old cop manouvre on me. That's why I prefer bike races.

Definitely need a mic.

Makes things a while lot easier being able to communicate with your crew. Work on strategy and what not or just bullshit around.

Yes most certainly. Even if it's just a cheap one.

Yeah it's pretty much said if your character isn't back now, they're probably gone for good, after this update, I was taken back to the character creation screen but my character was still there, so I guess the new method since the patch now stores it differently or something.

Got in, had my car blown up before I could fit it with a tracker & save it... got attacked, killed the attacker and went back to single player. Wonderful. When I start a game in solo, I expect to stay in solo, AFTER the tutorial. Yeesh.
