To-Do-List

Recommended Posts

This rather large to do list was staff only but now we've let the whole community help if they wish

Basically we need a load of content done to complete our unfinished parts of The GTA Place. I figured if I ask members of my forum we can all help get stuff done quicker. So I'd really appreciate it if anyone can do stuff to help. We aim to be the best GTA resource available.

NOTE: Anybody who is doing content, please spell and grammar check it, and also you can post it all in this topic if you like

I recommend you prioritise things.

Really Important -----> Important ----> Unimportant ----> Irrelevant

and organising things like this may help with the process:

Easy and quick -----> Hard and slow

You need to sort out what can be done and what needs to be done, so they're the ones you do.

Classic GTA + GTAA + GTA3 Content = unimportant, vslow

GTAVC + GTASA content = important, vslow

GTALCS content = really imporant, slow/fast

Add Good downloads = important, fast

Add loads of downloads = important, vslow

Edit Poll Script = unimportant, quick

Align ads = unimportant, quick

Fix Smilies + Image Uploader = unimportant, slow

Edit Gang System = unimportant, fast/slow

Ibstore on IPB 2.1 = important, fast/slow

So taking into account importance and speed, you should probably do things in this order:

Now

GTA LCS Content

Align Ads

Edit Poll Script

Over the next couple of weeks

GTA LCS Content

Fix Forum Mods

Get IBStore working on 2.1

Add important downloads

Over the next few months

Loads of SA downloads

A few VC downloads

GTASA and GTAVC Content

When bored or convenient (aka never)

Classic GTA Content

GTAA Content

GTA III downloads

I hope being sorted out helps

I posted a poll in the GTAIII section, asking people if they still play it and if its worth us adding more stuff. If we get a resounding "not bothered" or "don't care" then I think it would be safe to strike it off the list, along with classic GTA.

I never played GTAIII very much, mainly due to me not owning it (even now), so i think a poll would be better. I don't think there will be many gtaIII fanatics out there, but I expect that people still play it occasionally.

Ok I've moved this asshole of a topic from the admin forum to the staff forum incase one of my other bitches wants to help me.

I bet $10 that everyone does gently caress all to help me.

Anyone else wanna bet?

Is there any reason to have multiple forums that pretty much do the same thing? :blink:

Anyways, I actually can't help you with any of that stuff. :'(

Dunno it was Xenon's idea. Ask him.

...

He said it was for admin talk.. even more useful now that Xenon is rarely on msn.

Go on then mvi, instead of wasting time by complaining about the time taken you try doing it :P

Its the motivation to sit down and do these things, rather than sit on your ass and do nothing. Ideally, we need more staff to cope with the site content, if thats to be of any focus. With 2.1.1, the gangs, the store, and the shake-up, the forums will be pretty much sorted by christmas, and should run fairly smoothly. The site design is good, and the codings fine. So the site and forums are sorted but need content. People write volumes in the forums, but a few more graphical things have been added recently (eg pwned) so people are maybe more inspired to write for the important stuff, and the fun sections dont take up all the effort.

So yea any offers for content? Or anybody you think should help out?

Alright, guys. I have most of the content ready. I have updated information for the "Game Features" and "Characters" pages for LCS. I also have a complete listing of each article of clothing complete with a description, how to obtain it, and screenshots, all compressed to JPG format. Also, the CheatDevice page is not done yet, but will be soon.

NOTE: That I didn't format these for PHP, they are in the simple .txt format. Also, on the clothes page, all of the mission names used have HTML "<i>" tags. Hope that won't be a problem. I also know that my Features and Characters pages aren't the most in-depth, but I make 'em for a much-needed update to what is on there right now.

LCScontent.zip

Also, a little note, I love Photoshop's jpg compression. When they were .bmps, the images combined took up about 5mb. Compressed to a maxium quality jpg, all 16 images top out at a whopping 0.98mb. The whole .zip file is about 842k.

Thanks Chris, looks good.

Can I just point out if anyone's wondering, please write in present tense unless you're doing pre-release stuff, in which case future tense, but I think all pre-release stuff is done?

What I'll probably do is upload all this content people are doing, then once a substantial amount of it is done I'll post on the site thanking you guys for your help and support :)

Chris82, I've added your content, thanks.

The outfits page is great - http://www.thegtaplace.com/gtalcs/outfits.php

The characters page has more general information than it does about each character, so that will still need to be updated at some point - http://www.thegtaplace.com/gtalcs/characters.php

And the features page is fine, not sure if anything needs to be added to it - http://www.thegtaplace.com/gtalcs/features.php

And thanks for the screens of the outfits too, very helpful.

I think the characters page for every game actually needs to be revamped, I'm not suggesting we copy, but if you head over to gta-sanandreas.com and look at their characters page, thats the sort of detail that would be ideal, maybe just a couple lines description for all the main ones anyway. Accompanying screenshots would be very helpful but not necessary.

Thanks people, keep it coming, soon this place will be the ultimate resource for GTA.

I'll actually be putting all the mods and admins on the staff page if they aren't already, and people who have done content WILL be credited.

Please refer to my staff profiles topic for this though, NO discussing the staff page here, this is for content.
