It seems like our crew has a slight problem when it comes to accepting invites or sending them to other crew members. I can't speak for the Xbox folk (damn heathens) but on ps3 it feels like only a few folks are actively seeking to play the missions etc with other crew members. Now I'm sure part of it is that the game doesn't let you know that an invite is from crew or just a random but that can be alleviated (at least a bit) by everyone adding their names to our spreadsheet that sunburnthawk so kindly made for us and then adding those folks to your friends list. At least by adding them the your friends list you will have seen the name so it will be recognizable when an invite pops up. We have nearly 300 members and less than 40 have put their names in the spreadsheet. More crew on a job is more rp and way more fun. Also it would be good if folks got used to each other's play styles etc and who they enjoy playing with so that when the big heists become available our crew can rock it out with no problems. Just my two cents ladies and gents.

I completely understand the not always wanting to do missions and not having the whole crew on your list and I hope I didn't come across as a dick about it. Just putting it out there. When you're in that invite screen and you see the same names getting invited and never accepting it starts to feel like they don't want to play with the group at all. Not trying to call anyone out or make waves just pointing out what I notice is all.

I personally think that's where its gonna take time for everyone to get to know who everyone else is. We'll see who is active in the community and who isn't which will let us open up more spots. As we weed people out we can slowly get more and more people in who stay active in the Old Guy community.
I agree with Bocephusbear. Lately I've been forced to open up matchmaking in order to fill up our lobbies.
90% of the time I spend online is done doing missions -- so I'm almost always down for missions. If I don't accept your invite it means that I'm either about to host one, waiting to join one, or simply am doing something else.

I believe there are still some network issues as I've also had problems getting into lobbies. Failed to Connect, Lobby is full, etc. I often get those messages. I try to take most job invites if I'm not actively doing something in Free Roam like selling cars, taking down an armored car or gang attack. Kenny knows I'm down for jobs, especially if he's driving lol.

anyone else run into this? Occasionally Ill accept an invite, get in the lobby, lobby fills up and when the mission starts I'm the only one in the mission! Doesn't happen all the time but I've had it happen a few times in the last week.

The Evil Dragon: Started a new online character to dump money, before finishing the intro missions someone gifted me a billion dollars. Thought it was a hundred million, social club says I have 1.1 Billion. Should have stuck with the 100 million I had left before.

The Evil Dragon: P.S. Deleting a character full of cash dumps money back into your account, it does NOT get rid of it. I know, first world problems. I just don't want my account blocked from online.Maybe I can fill a garage full of modded Adders and ram tank grievers?

The Evil Dragon: I e-mailed Rockstar earlier, waiting for an answer.

bigred19d: Rockstar is going to attempt a purge on modded money... They are not going to take guns, vehicles or housing away. Just gifted money. I used my 2nd character slot and bought an apartment and filled it with non modded adders, that's 6 million in cash.

The Evil Dragon: great minds think alike. I did the same, but got the Obey Tailgater from the first race and actually managed to keep it !!! So I have 9 Adders and a tailgator in a ten car garage on a level 6 character.

bigred19d: O.K. gang we have decided to put together a crew created playlist. Get to creating!!!! We as a crew will vote on submitted creations. Once we have a tight playlist involving most types of vehicles and a few WELL DONE death matches.
Jan 10, 2014 12:16:07 GMT -4
bigred19d: This list will be ever evolving and will be updated with improved created races. This is not mandatory at all but it would be nice if we could get as many members involved as possible.
Jan 10, 2014 12:18:23 GMT -4
mrharrybergeron: Hey Red, maybe let's start voting next weekend. That'll give people time to explore some TOGS created stuff this weekend and this week. Let's have a official place where people can vote on their favorites. A Google Doc will work fine.
Jan 10, 2014 14:36:25 GMT -4
mrharrybergeron: Or, actually, maybe people should just create a playlist called/tagged "favorite togs". Choose from your favorites first, etc. Members can always go back and change it up in-game.
Jan 10, 2014 14:38:27 GMT -4
mrharrybergeron: Also, do we have an official 'tag' for crew-made content? Is it #theoldguys, #oldguys, or should we just make it #togs? I know some of you would have to go back through your stuff and add tags, but it'd be easier to let crew know to tag stuff with #togs
Jan 10, 2014 14:44:05 GMT -4
angryniceguy: so far #theoldguys is the standard, been using it to tag photos. Also, good idea on this playlist, great way to support each other creations.

canuck613: Was there a recent purge of the membership list? My friend (PrezHotNuts) and I (Canuck613 in game) were no longer in the crew as of yesterday. We both sent requests back to be reinstated, just curious if there was a glitch on the R* end or not.
Jan 15, 2014 11:14:04 GMT -4
canuck613: And I'm back. Thanks folks, disregard my previous message. Glad to see we're keeping the 300 spots for active members, thanks to those who are managing the crew day-to-day. Makes it fun for those of us who have less time than they'd like to play!

Bocephusbear: So I'm in a race lobby with a bunch of randos. We choose our cars then get to the screen for betting and choosing our winning action. I start looking around the group and see that Kaiser soze is standing next to me. I of course start yelling "KAISER SOZE!
Jan 18, 2014 23:20:39 GMT -4
Bocephusbear: KAISER SOZE!" Then as I'm quoting the bit "and just like that *poof* he's gone" he fucking disappears and no one in the lobby saw it but me. Made my night.
Jan 18, 2014 23:22:54 GMT -4
canuck613: Haha, man, I hope that's all this guy does with that username. As soon as he's recognized, poof, logoff.
