A few simple rules for this club:

Looking to replace some folks on my list that aren't racing me back recently.
Thanks.

Guys I can't host a race unless I have 1 driver. See rule #1

If its a repeat offender over time, check your log and let us know so we can remove the kink in the hose. :ill:

*edit*
Not to mention, how long does the grinder take to update your friends list these days? had a couple folks accept invitations 4 hours ago, but they still don't show up in the grinder 2.5.1.

My friend list seems to update fine as long as I always log out of gran-turismo.com, exit the widget, log out and back in on ps3. Well oiled machine just the oil seems hard to find lol.


PS - Not to offend anyone but any new friend requests I get won't be approved until I see the name here.

Server Maintenance also.

I'm running races manually and trying to get everyone, but if I don't, remember I'm a guy and not a widget.

Thanks for those who already added me, will add the rest tomorrow sometime. All in this group will be marked as "Use everytime" in my widget.

Is somebody keeping status of who is actually active grinders just to see if we got one freeloader who sneaked in here?

I wont accept people, who's name isn't in this thread!

You can check your friends' race results to see how often they race by clicking on community, then on their id/psn/profile, and then on the remote race button. It will give the date and time of the last 50 remote races they hosted. You should get a very good idea from that.

P.S. Ok, I guess I'm in too. PSN: WakeStriker

Hey quick question for all you guys,

There are people I've added yesterday that still aren't showing up in my friends list on the widget so I am unable to race bobs from those who have added me in this group, any suggestions? I want to be able to return the favor to you all, but this issue is preventing me from doing so..

Thanks in advance!

Normally just logging out on ps3 and restart widget should do the trick. You are in Minnesota and you can run the widget? I'm in Vegas and been getting "server maintenance" since yesterday so if you want to keep running the widget you may not want to log out.

Don't worry RLR, I'm in the exact same situation. I'm in atlanta and also can't log in. I think the gt5 website is down so we can't login to the website or use the grinder cuz it uses the web interface, but doing it manually from the ps3 still works. I just can't keep up with the manual thing (props to chipotle). I haven't been able to race anyone in this group yet, as soon as the widget can be used again (and assuming it will pick up the folks I added yesterday too) I'll have everyone going soon.

Thanks guys, yeah my widget doesn't work today and I tried logging onto the GT5 site which was also a no-go, so I guess I'll be confined to doing them manually from the PS3 until the site is fixed!

Manually from the ps3 is getting tedious. The server is so slow for me that it seems like half the time is spent populating the race and the other half the race itself. GRRRRRRR

I just stopped all together. There is just waaaay to much waiting for drivers to pop.:grumpy:
Hopefully we get the servers back online soon.
