  1. Past hour
  2. I think that's a good point, lots of people got stuff to do IRL as well so we can't expect everyone to always be available, especially when the population is low on the server. I'll see if I can reinstate as an MTA admin whenever the next chance arises. I wouldn't mind sitting on most of the day (could tab out and do my work, since I mostly work from home anyway and tab in to do reports), I enjoy the chaos RP a lot whenever there are people and admins on and I think it's a good direction for the MTA server for now. Been enjoying the RP a lot and I wouldn't mind helping out with chaotic events to bring in more people. As the winter comes nearer, it gives more possibilities for such things. Also another suggestion, if I may: Change the name of the server in the MTA listings a bit to reflect the current nature of the Server so new people that may join aren't turned off when they find out the server's new direction and that we attract the right type of people.
  3. Today
  4. Just open up applications for new admins, maybe even exclusive for MTA. Saying that every time we asked for an admin now and they didn't come is because of IRL obligations is just a blatant lie. I really don't get why you guys just aren't honest that you're not interested in MTA. Kinda like @Unitts already was. Just get some new admins instead of saying all the current admins are busy or that "you don't need admins".
  5. "The User would see an ad for LosSantosFreePress.com((website only exists on the forums)), upon clicking the ad, they would click the financial button. The most recent article would be displayed on the screen" The dangers of taking out to much debt Published on: 11.17.2019 By: Lillian Armstrong - Chief Editor Do you remember when you were told as a child to not play with fire? Do you remember the potential repercussions of playing with fire? If they were anything like my parents, you would be told that the fire could burn your house down, or, start an apocalyptic forest fire. Nonetheless, there is a similar similarity to taking out debt. Play around with debt, take out and buy things that you cannot afford to pay back, and you are setting yourself your assets on fire, or in financial terms, opening up the risk for you have those assets taken away or even go into bankruptcy. So, you also might be asking yourself, the purpose of this article? Well, it has come to our attention that many car dealerships and mortgage companies in the state have a system in place where you can buy cars, houses, and apartments on credit. The requirements are that you only set a minimum down payment of 5% and set your monthly payments anywhere from 1 month to 200 months. I believe that citizens should be aware of the potential risks that could happen to them financially if they do not pay back the loans. Lets start with an example, assume you have a great, well-paying, job. This job provides you with an income of 1000 dollars per month. Let’s also assume that this job has been going well for several months and you decide to take out credit on a fancy 60,000 dollar car. You pay the minimum 5% down payment and set a monthly payment plan for about 60 months. Fast forward a few months, everything is going well with the payment plan. You have not missed a payment consecutively, until, you get laid off from the job. Now, your monthly payments have exceeded your monthly income. Let's also assume you used all your savings on buying a place in Mirror Park. What is going to happen to that asset? Will it simply be taken away after missing payments? This is just one scenario of a payment plan going terribly wrong. At the end of the day, it is legally the responsibility of the consumer to know what they are signing up for. However, I do feel that the local government can assist in teaching consumers about the financial system before they sign on the dotted line. We Suggest that a simple financial guide is provided for all consumers before they sign away. In this case, consumers can learn valuable things such as how a higher down payment can help pay off credit sooner and cheaper than a lower down payment. I would like to hear from you on what you think of the credit system. Please let us know your thoughts on the taking out credit in the comment section below! I look forward to reading them! - Lillian Armstrong HELP WANTED: Hiring writers, photographers, and more!

  6. its pretty clear that admins dont want to "sit around doing nothing" on MTA and you cant expect players to be happy if their primary method of getting ahold of an admin is opening up discord. and lets be real how many of those admins are willing to stop what theyre doing and open up MTA Im not saying make EVERYONE who plays MTA an admin im saying from the looks of it you lack even a single one whos devoted to MTA and its hurting the playerbase even more than it already has been hurt
  7. There's having obligations every now and again, and then there's obligations being used at every given opportunity as an excuse. If an administrator isn't able to uphold their responsibilities in a voluntary role, or is even worse.. becoming a placeholder then they should be relieved of their neglected staff duties and return back to being a normal player in order to open the role up for people who are more suitable. The role of an administrator has lost its original purpose and meaning to a lot of people posting here, originally it was for people who were sure that they had the spare time to give back to the community and to be rewarded in the form of certain perks. Another problem we're having is the lack of transparency at the minute. Concurrent MTA players have no idea who to go to or who to report for inactivity in a staff role, they're being told that either GAT as a whole are obligated to any platform of their choosing meaning they're specifically administrating for Owl V or MTA, and then there's other people claiming that they're obligated to administrate on both platforms. So overall, you can't blame players for trying to point out that there's a distinct lack of motivation and initiative in the staff team right now.
  8. Who says admins aren't willing to be available in-game on MTA? There is admins who are willing to but when people need an admin the admins can't get in-game due to real-life obligations. And making everyone on MTA admins isn't a solution to the issue either, it would most likely lead to a new path of issues.
  9. I think people who are actually active in MTA should be given admin then if current administration isn't willing to be available in game.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Oh behave I'm not sitting on mta doing fuck all just to be there on the off chance of a report, if an admin is able to get in-game then they most probably will if you ask

  19. Services To Los Santos: Digital Written Journalism. Documentary Production. On-Air and Live Journalist ((Imagine Youtube Live or Twitch)). Our History: Established June 1st 1960, as Los Santos Free Press, formally Paleto Free Press, is a local media agency that has a focus on providing local and unbiased media for the citizens. Los Santos Free Press has traditionally covered news revolving around politics, finance, quality of life, and local business reviews. Los Santos Free Press was originally founded by native islander, Andretti Agumanu. He was known for his fierce personality and eagerness to discover the truth. His political posts at the time were controversial due to the harsh criticism that he would write. He managed to turn Los Santos Free Press into a well known and reputable newspaper. However, he passed away, rather sudden, on July 8th 1980 and without his leadership, Los Santos Free Press started to slowly decline. Some could say the companies decline was due to reluctance to keep up with technology, but many local citizens claim the newspaper was simply not the same without the leadership of Andretti. By 2018, Los Santos Free Press had only four paying subscribers for the newspaper and was on the brink of shut-down. A Path towards the future: Lillian Armstrong - Chief Editor - CEO - Los Santos Free Press On August 11th, 2019, Lillian Armstrong moved to Los Santos County after working as a proclaimed photo-journalist for ten years. She discovered that Los Santos Free Press was liquidating its assets. Lillian had enough money saved up to purchase the company and its printing assets in Paleto. She had always wanted to start her own media company and this was her golden opportunity. She went right to work by hiring a web designer to design the website((forums)) that will host the, now, digital newspaper. She also invested the rest of her money into buying equipment to host an upcoming radio station, and also film equipment for her documentaries and online broadcast journalism platform. It has all lead to now, November 15th 2019, when she decided that she had to leave the companies long-established headquarters in Paleto for better opportunities in the city.

Meanwhile, Giovanni got into an ironic crash and is now in a wheelchair for a month with a broken left arm and leg. So he chose to spend what was left of the day, after he got discharged, with some friends.
