Grand Theft Auto 5 became one of the most popular video games of all time, after Minecraft. Other sources claim it as the single highest-grossing entertainment media ever thanks to downloadable content and sales in its online mode, Grand Theft Auto Online.

Grand Theft Auto 5 RP is a popular multiplayer mode for the PC version of the game that allows players to create their own narrative in whatever way they want. The actual rules of the mod and how people are allowed to play vary from server to server.

Several streamers have dedicated significant amounts of time to the RP server since NoPixel was released. However, some streamers, like xQc, have found themselves at odds with the folks who oversee the Grand Theft Auto 5 server and have been banned as a result. Back in 2019, one such streamer, who goes by the name Ming, was handed over to the server. Now, it appears that this restriction will be lifted.

koil, the owner of a NoPixel server, hosted a charity stream recently. He suggested that he would ban Ming if he received $100,000 in donations. One fan of Ming from Saudi Arabia who goes by the name incivik donated $40,000 to the charity drive.

Despite its popularity, the NoPixel server is often the focus of disputes over its limits. Other streamers, like Summit1G, have criticized the Grand Theft Auto 5 server's restrictions, calling them unfair. At the very least, Ming may soon rejoin his NoPixel teammates.

Grand Theft Auto Online is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
