A gang, in relation to GTAForums, is a group of members who have banded together, under a theme, to chat, role play, and basically act like kids. It's an incredibly absorbing world of intrigue, espionage, and whinging. Gangs, my friends, are awesome.
The gangs are divided into two groups - the Officials, and the Unofficials. The Officials have custom member groups on GTAF and a private forum. The unofficials used to have the Public Gang Chat, or the PGC.

Unfortunately, in order to cope with the massive user base, the 'unofficial' gangs of GTAforums.com have been left without a home. We've all become rather nomadic, and bounce from place to place on a regular basis. As we're all centered around GTAF, that's the obvious hub that connects all of us - but we're somewhat banished from discussing our existence.
We're not a dirty little secret, or anything of the sort, we're simply a homeless community. When you become a member of an unnofficial gang, you can proudly wear your signature on GTAF.
This board is meant as a stepping stone for the few unnofficial gangs that remain in tact. A place where we can gossip, spam, and create the gang identities we used to hold so dear.
