Happy Birthday to The GTA Place! It's hard to believe it was 7 years ago today I created this website. Our website history has had a small part added to bring it up to date with the most recent major change. If you don't know much about us, it might be interesting to you, or bore you to death!

Now we don't really have any big announcements for you this year, but that doesn't mean we're not looking to update or change things around here. We're currently talking about adding non-English subforums - good news for our foreign visitors (there are a lot of you). It's something we'd like to trial, and depending on its success this may spread to other parts of the website, the downloads database is extremely popular so that is one likely area we may make multi-lingual.

If you're not already a member of our forums, why not take a moment to register? It's completely free and will give you many benefits such as being able to being able to post and reply to topics, interact with like-minded fans, and (soon) chat with other fans in your own language!

On a sidenote, feel free to use our suggestion forum if there is something you'd like to see on TGTAP, be it a small change to something, or a big new feature, we're all ears.

Enjoy the delicious cake!

Mmm, cake... Well congratz TGTAP and Chris by mantaining this site for so long, though I'm only here since 2007 (Used to visit it before but I was a nub then (for cheats)), I've seen the past sites and stuff seemed to go pretty well!

Om Nom Nom...

Anyway, I knew TGTAP's birthday was in November, I just didn't know what date. I've been here since March 2007, it's a great site. I hope it keeps going, at least for another three years so it can celebrate its 10th birthday but it would be wonderful after that.

At first, I looked at this topic thinking "Uhh, someone's bumped the old TGTAP birthday topic from last year...", then I see that it's actually November, and past a year since the last topic similar to this was made. :P

Happy birthday TGTAP!

Haha, makes me think of why I didn't join this place before, but nevermind, what matters is that this is an important date and I really hope that this site will keep growing so we can celebrate many more more of these.

Oh . . .

Yeah I was wondering why the oldest people joined on February 15th 04 and yet they claimed they had been here since like 2002.

Back in 2002, TGTAP used PHPBB, then they got hacked numerous times and upgraded to IPB in 04.
