    GTA Section Rules aren't being abided to

    For example

    1. In the shops & services pages, there are many people who are offering the services without giving proof.
    Here's one example: http://www.mpgh.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1021173

    2. There are also many people bumping the threads before 24 hours.

    3 . And finally, there are people asking for vouch copies when they're not allowed to, and people giving vouch copies out when they shouldn't be.

    4. In the uploading section where people add their files, there are people posting cheats/ hacks/ menus/ files without giving credits to the people who actually made them.
    5. People are uploading stuff without giving any descriptions or photos.

    Can I ask - are the rules to be ignored from now on?
    If they are not to be ignored, can I have the issues I mentioned addressed?
    I have reported many posts but I never see them get edited or removed.

    Thanks. I'm tagging the GTA section staff members for a more thorough answer.

    Not sure what to say about this.

    Marketplace section is usually quite active. Staff can't instantly follow up on early bumps. When seen, they do get deleted. If you happen to see it before a minion gets to it, you can simply press the report button to notify all the minions and global moderators about the post. It will then get handled.

    Similar answer as above. Press the report button if it hasn't been handled already. As for people giving them away for free, they're at a total loss. The vouch won't count since they don't meet the requirements.

    It's not like the minions know by-heart who created what hack. Usually if it's reported, we can ensure proper credits are being given.

    It's a hack. It doesn't need a full lengthy blog post about it. As long as it meets the uploading rules with 2 virus scans and screenshots/video it's fine.

    Probably because your judgement is wrong or the report is invalid. All reports get looked at by GM+ anyway.

    No, I only report posts that are breaching the forum rules, and like I've said, even then it can take over 20 hours for anything to happen, and by that time, the damage is already done.

    Maybe you should consider adding another minion/ moderator to the GTA section who can be active for several hours a day rather just here and there.

    Maybe you didn't read what I wrote before. I said all reports are looked at by Global Moderators+ so if you report something and within 24 hours it's not deleted, you were probably wrong.

    There haven't been any complaints about things going unattended for over 24 hours apart from this. There are definitely enough minions in there to get the job done.

    Most of what you've mentioned is tiny little nit-picky things.

    "Most" of what "I've mentioned" relates directly to people breaking rules of the forum that have been around longer than GTA V section has.

    Am I to consider the rules worthless because they're essentially nit-picky things?
    Because they're nit-picky things, I shouldn't have to abide by them, right? That's what you're saying, essentially. Otherwise, may as well remove the rules that are nit-picky.

    Well I've already addressed your concerns twice. Now it seems like you can't read or are intentionally just ignoring what I'm saying.

    If you see something, report it. If something hasn't been taken care of within 24 hours, report it.

    Thanks.
