      I have created a race and published it but for some reason I cannot find it. Even when I go on the socialclub website and click add to game, it's not even on my bookmarks.

                Um yeah there is a problem with loading screens and the creator.
                The loading screen taking me into GTA5 when you can choose to go online or event (if there is one) it cuts off to the right on my tv/ps3 and the creator, I'd be in the middle of making a GTA capture and when I place down a vehicle and not a capture vehicle after making the job for more then ten minutes about, it records it as a capture vehicle and I have to restart when that happens.
                Little question by the way, is this how you take problems by the gamer community? Shouldn't you have an email for us to send bugs, update suggestions, or questions of anything?
                Please help tho..

                  I have made a race three times and it won't save or publish. I remade the race but it still doesn't work. I even waited a day to see if it would work the next day but it keeps saying the Rockstar cloud servers are unavailable. Someone please help so I can finish my hard work.

                    Banned for life??? How do you get console banned if you didn't use DNS codes and you didn't hack?????????? Is this a permanent ban or is this temporary?? I logged in yesterday and it told me I was banned.... I am very disappointed. I have been playing GTA ever since it came out on PC, I have always been on good behavior, and all of a sudden I am banned and it wont even let me start a new account?? Come on Rockstar.. Shame...

                      I got a problem.
                      When ever I try and get on online mode. It will load but says "New downloadable content has been installed returning to story mode" and does this over and over so I can't get online.

                          My GTA V online character has the bullet proof vest on and it wont come off. Is there anyway I can take it off? I already went to that whole inventory thing and put the "show vest" as off but it will not leave ! Even when I change clothes. Is there anything else I can do it get it off
