On July 29th, 2010, the V inside of the GTAV.net logo began changing in color.
Inside of the colored border of the V was what appeared to be an image.
A thread was started on the subject at GTAForums.com, and soon people from
all around the world was trying to find the picture hidden within the V.

Once the first image was found, the logo changed again.
People continued the search for the images inside of the V,
and new images are still appearing inside of the logo.

As it's known that GTAnet admins have good contact with Rockstar Games,
this led people to believe that the changing V might be giving away hints towards GTA V.
People believe that it might be leading us towards the location of the next GTA.

Currently Unsolved:


At Midnight (GMT) August 7th, 2010,
GTAV.NET was updated to this state:

Minutes later, it was updated back to the original Blue V!

It was found by opening the image file in notepad
that the file contained these lines:

<rdf:li xml:lang="x-default">6364 Hollywood</rdf:li>

At Midnight (GMT) August 8th, 2010,
The GTAV.NET Logo was updated again with the same blue V picture,

theese coordinates:

+34 54' 14.99 -116 53' 9.95

At 5 PM (GMT) August 9th, 2010,

this zipcode:

At Midnight (GMT) August 9th, 2010,
The GTAV.NET Logo was updated with an image inside of the V again:

(Thanks to yngwierocks at GTAForums for saving this image before it disappeared!)

This image was quickly removed from GTAV.net but luckily, we got it.
Once the logo with the image inside was removed, the original blue V
once again contained coordinates, just like last midnight update:


These coordinates points to Roswell, NM 88203.
That place looks like nothing we've seen in a Grand Theft Auto before.

The Poll:

At about 00:56 AM (GMT) on August 6th, a poll was added to the topic at GTAForums by an Admin.
The title of the poll consisted of the seemingly random numbers "1102?" and there was two choices...
"5 Guys, 5 Bullets, 5 Letters" and "204"

The poll was removed after only a couple of minutes.
