Some gangs get their own private subforum to chat in. Click for a list of gangs, how to join a gang, how to start your own gang, or more information about what a gang is.

How Do I join a gang?

There are three simple ways to join a gang. You can either...

1. Go to the recruitment forum (click here) where you will find several different gang "recruitment topics". Whichever gang suits you best, post your interest in their recruitment topic.

For example:

Hi. I'd like to join your gang. I've been here for a month and I feel as though I could contribute to your gang and help out with whatever I can. Thanks for your consideration. :)


2. You could start a "Free Agent" topic. This is a topic you create in the 'Recruitment' forum (click here).

For example:

Hi. I've been here for a month now and I want to get into the gang scene. There are some awesome gangs here and I cannot choose which gang I want to be in, so I thought I'd leave it up to you. Post in my topic if you want me to join your gang. Thanks. :)


3. Finally, if you want to join a gang PM the gangs leader. If you are unsure of who the leader of the gang is, click here. This topic shows the basic statistics of each gang (including gang leader, previous leader, links to chat and recruitment topics as well as a small description of the gang).

I wish you the best of luck and I hope you manage to find a gang that suits you.

How Do I Create a Gang?

Before you can create a gang, you must have been at member at TGTAP for at least 2 weeks, and have a minimum of 100 posts.

There are many different things you have to cover to create a gang that can be successful in the gang scene. Things you will need to cover include...

1. Appealing Recruitment and Chat Topics (good formatting and graphics)
2. Realism (making the gang as true to life as possible)
3. A Story (the history of the gang for example)
4. Requirements (create requirements for your gang if you feel the TGTAP requirements aren't high enough)

Here is an example of a good gang recruitment topic.
Note: This recruitment topic is based upon a Mafia style gang. Scroll down to find more information for Street gangs, Irish gangs etc...

All recruitment topics must be posted in the Recruitment Forum (click here).

Vizzini Family Mafia - The Sicilian Way Of Life :: A Liberty City Crime Syndicate

/::\~~~~| Welcome |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/::\

Think you've got what it takes to become a Vizzini Family wiseguy? Well, this is the place to find out...

/::\~~~~| Story |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/::\

The Vizzini Family is an old style Italian mafia based gang. Once known as a small racketeering family, but today known as one of the most powerful family's in New York. They deal in almost everything from Racketeering and Extortion to Protection and Robbery.

They were behind the heist of '86 taking their first big paycheck, throwing them into a world of big mansions and fancy cars.

They have been known to deal in drugs, but it isn't something they do on a main scale. The Drug business is risky, and they don't want to lose the empire they have built all due to a bad deal.

If you want to know more, you'll have to join...


/::\~~~~| Borgata Etiquette (The Omertá) |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/::\

If you want to become a Mafioso in the VFM, you must take the vow of Omertá.

· You must have a good name on the streets and walk the streets often (you must have a good or neutral reputation and you must be online at least 4 times a week with at least 125 posts).
· You must have adequate wisdom of the Sicilian ways (you must have been joined with the forums for at least 1 month).


/::\~~~~| VFM - General Information |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/::\

You will be treated with respect by other family members and you must do the same back, or you will have the Don onto your tail. You must be well behaved at all times and be a good, loyal member.

The VFM have never been in a 'mannagge' (gang war) with any other family, borgata or clan and we will keep it that way. If you start any trouble with any borgata or family, you will be told to resign and leave the family, you will not have any say or choice in the matter.


/::\~~~~| Promotions |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/::\

If the Don or a member in Administration notices that you have been doing something well that benefits the gang in some way or another, the Don will see to it that you are promoted.

The VFM promote members once every month depending on the jobs they have completed and how well they completed them. If you do not do any jobs for a long extent of time, you will not be promoted.


/::\~~~~| To become a Mafioso... |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/::\

In order to become a respected Mafioso within the VFM, you will need to prove to the Don, whether you have what it takes to become a Vizzini Mafioso. You will need to fill out the following form and post it here if you are interesting in becoming a respected Mafioso.

Your join-date:
Your post-count:
Your PPD:
Your previous gangs:
How would you be an asset to the VFM?
What do you have to offer the VFM?

If you meet all the requirements, Don Vizzini will see how you could fit into the Family, and what position you should be issued with.

Some Points of Interest and Things a Good Gang Leader Will Remember

The following are just some obvious pointers and qualities you should have before starting your gang.

• One of the most important things about starting a gang is having a good reputation and being known around the boards. If you start a gang with an average reputation and a small presence on the boards, you will most likely struggle trying to get your gang off the ground.

• Also, if you're able to, don't start you gang until you have some ground level recruits. To put it simply, make sure you have a couple of members that are ready to help you with your gang before you start it.

• Importantly, avoid recruiting average members. Average members will hurt your gang and its reputation. Avoid this at all costs.

• ABOVE ALL! Remember this rule.. Quality not Quantity. If you recruit 20 bad members this will hinder the quality of your gang, instead, recruit 5 good members. Less is often more in this case.

How Does My Gang Become Official?

Before you gang is eligible to become official, it will need to have a minimum of 7 active members and a noticed presence around TGTAP.

Once you have achieved these two prerequisites, you will then be taken into consideration by 'The Commission' (click here to learn about 'The Commission').

If 'The Commission' judges that your gang is of a high quality, you will be made official.

When your gang is made "official" it will then receive its own private forum and group. This is the highest plateau for a gang. Once your gang is official, you have then proved yourself in the gang community and can wear your gangs signature with pride.

What is an Official Gang?

An official gang is an ordinary gang that has proved its worth within the gang community. Meaning "The Commission" (click here to learn about 'The Commission') has decided that the gang has aspired to a quality that deserves reward. That reward being a private forum for them to discuss what they wish to (unhindered by other gangs) as well as their own group (giving them exclusivity within the community).

The Origin and History of the Gang System

The idea of the gang system originated at GTAForums in November 2001, where its original purpose was for groups to get together and play GTA3 Multiplayer. Over time, due to the lack of progress with GTA3 MP, it evolved into what it is today, and that is a forum based gang system.

(We are currently developing a new San Andreas Multiplayer gang system which will be separated from this - this is managed by Sherman).

The gang system idea has grown over many years and has seen many different forums over time, such as GTAForums, GTABoards, GTAElite, GTAJunkies, TheGTAPlace as well as many more.
