|Requirements for Starting an Event|
There are no specific requirements for staring an event. Anyone can start an event, regardless of their join date, post count, forum history, etc. The rules you set up for your event need to be reasonable and mature. As the judge of a competition, you are expected to be just while deciding on winners.
Make sure to include the essential details, such as gamemode(s), Date and Time (with Timezone), duration, etc. Please mention the platform(s) [PSN/XBL/SA:MP, etc.] in obvious locations, such as the topic title/description or the first post.
We do not mind if an external gang or player seeks for participation from here, the more players/events, the merrier. But do not just post a link to your website/forums, asking people to sign up over there. No advertising - its against the GTAForums Rules and Policies. Avoid posting external links and make proper use of your topic. You can post anything pertaining to your event within your topic - rules, schedules, results and what-not.
Asking people to PM you is considered external communication/advertising. Additionally, a mixture of no effort and a short notice hinders your "event" gaining any form of interest and budding participants. Look at other topics in this forum for general pointers if you are willing to take this seriously and put in the effort.
