GMC and it's future!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Thank you all for taking the time to read this thread! I wanted to create this because we're closing in on GMC's renewal. I think it's important to really catch the attention of the member base here. 

For years, we here at GMC, have believed in the fundamentals of sharing. We all got into modding GTA for different reasons, but when I started modding GTA, I really felt the urge to get better. My desire to create content grew more and more! Luckily we've had the opportunity to bring great mods here to the community!  I've met a lot of members in this community that have become great friends, and some that blessed us with their presence for a short period of time.

When Crunch, Faracus, Snit and I started GMC, we really just wanted a drama free place to have fun and share our passion with others. We really wanted to have a one stop shop for quality parts and mods!  We've grown a lot and continue to do so to this day! When we started GMC, we were on a shared hosting server which essentially we shared with other websites. This was an inexpensive way to get GMC off the ground. It did, however, pose other challenges (Connection time to the site, upload limits, etc).  About 2 years ago, my hosting company had a deal on a VPS (Virtual Private Server) and SNIT and I decided to give GMC an upgrade. Being on a VPS is nice, and does bring a nice flow here to GMC, however it is expensive. The normal price of our VPS was $130 a month. That's quite a bit to undertake! Luckily the sale they had kicked that price down the $30 a month! GMC could go back to shared box, however I believe the VPS would be best.  

I am going to do my best to keep the "lights" on here on GMC, but even for myself, I can't find the time to enjoy this wonderful hobby! I'm not sure what route we will go here, but in the meantime, we at least want to thank everyone that has supported us through the years! I may try to find alternatives to hosting the site, but I sure will keep everyone updated! Thank you everyone! :wub:

I really hoped for some replies from people to show support for GMC. We just passed another year mark and unfortunately it's time for GMC to go. I will not be releasing any of my parts before I shut the site down. Thanks to all of those who have helped with GMC and good luck to those who even care about police mods anymore lol

Really going to miss this site, without the people I've met and interacted with for the last four years I'd be nowhere. Thank you Voodoo and all other GMC staff for providing a great site for modding enthusiasts to use for years. I will never forget all the great memories and amazing things this site had to offer. Best of luck to everyone, it's been a great ride <3

Hi @VooDoobie 

I've tried contacting you about a possible lifeline for the site, but not getting any response from your site's messaging system or DM...

Is it something you're willing to discuss?

Thanks
