                I can't get into any mode except solo or invite only. so only way i can play online is solo and not with other people. i try to join just go and it times out every time. takes about 2-3 mins to fail then 2-3 mins to say oh you need to go back to single player. even quick job is a bit of a wait. :(

                    I can't load my published race. It shows up on Social Club but it won't show up on the game, even days after. I saved it on social club, restarted the game and it still isn't showing up. Macdiggity333

                        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.
