Well, TGTAP actually turned 5 years old a few days ago, on November 29th, but I never got round to posting this. Would probably look silly as news now, so it's going here.

I can't believe it's been 5 years since I started this website. We've come a long way since then and have blossomed into one of the most visited GTA websites on the net, with a quarter of a million visitors every month, serving up many millions of pages. Things picked up heavily over the last year with a lot of GTA IV information and media getting released, but in the past few months the GTA community has become less active due to the lack of anything new. Thankfully, just yesterday we received the best bit of news we've had for a long time, the announcement of a third trailer, and the unveiling of the official box art. Exciting stuff, it certainly woke a lot of people up and the post received many comments. A nice little activity increaser.

However long you've been with us, we hope you'll be here for our sixth year, when [hopefully] we'll all be enjoying Grand Theft Auto IV!

I've only been here for 5 months or something but I feel like I've been here for ages, people are cool( there are exceptions), I come here everyday, I love this site and I hope it never ends. Big credits to everyone that made this site possible and to every member that obeys the rules.

i agree with CQC expert, i have only been here a short time (which by the way is curtesy of mrllamallama) and i feel like i have made a lot of friends...

happy birthday TGTAP and congratulations to chris!

I have no problem with people believing what they want, until they think it's right to try and change what I believe.

I'm so happy, I could shit a rainbow!
