There are so many problems with this page that people like me could fix, (I'm an experienced editor of Grand Theft Auto articles over on Wikipedia) but the article is locked so that I can't edit this. This frustrates me, that the only people who can edit it can't even be bothered fixing it up. Please do something about this - either let people like me edit these kinds of locked articles, or fix it yourself, if you can edit it. --Rhain1999 (talk) 04:17, October 4, 2013 (UTC)
- I completely agree. There are dozens of inconsistancies or just blatent wrong information. I dunno who's bright idea it was to lock it, and still have it locked over a week after it's release, but it needs to go back to being public. Isn't that the whole point of Wiki's like this? public avalability?
- Anyhow as far as wrong information goes a few example is it is talking about the avalability of hiests and doing them with friends but heists are currently not in the game yet. They also referense the content creater but that also is not in the game. Resturants like Cluckin' Bell are closed and players are never able to enter, not even in singleplayer like in GTA IV. Passive mode is also marked as a whole new game mode. Much of this is obviously speculation before it came out. It's really about time to let people edit it.

Some of this information is outdated and mostly in the past tense. Like the Cluckin' Bell thing. You can't even use it in story mode. Also, I'm pretty sure GTA Online starts a few days/weeks/months before the campaign starts. I got a text from Lester awhile back and he referenced the diamond store that got robbed in the campaign. (You have to sell the diamonds in this mission)
Also, remember when Lester mentions in one of the missions that he knows a person, but their way too unpredictable? I think he's referencing the GTA Online character.
I'm sure more will pop up in the near future, but I think I have the timeline thing basically figured out.
Timeline errors or just general errors?
So i've notised things that could throw the "when is it set" question either way, yet idk if it's just a timeline error or a general dev oversight, for example, i've heard a few times online is set months (possibly 5) before the single player story, yet Tracey is on Fame or Shame (which could just be developer oversight) meaning it is part way through the timeline, but MerryWeather security seems to be full force and uneffected showing it's possibly before Trevor gets to them. Also Stab City is fully intact and populated in all my visits meaning Trevor hasn't given them their gifts yet.
In the article it says "Lester gives you a mission to sell the diamonds that were stolen during "The Jewel Store Job", while in the trivia it says GTA Online takes place one year before the events of GTA V. Obviously, one of them is wrong. Can someone please find some evidence of either being true so it can be cleared? Cheers.
The mission in question is Last Chopper Outta LS. If one looks at the text from lester, it's clearly not referencing the The Jewel Store Job from the story. Why would Lester want you to take the crew out? Surely that'd mean killing the 3 protags. Clearly this is a big misunderstanding. They are not the same job.
What is this bullshit?
Why the hell can't I play this game? It says that my profile "does not have the correct permissions to access Xbox LIVE functionality," which is a blatant fucking lie. Another job well done, Rockstar. - Erik the Mad (talk) 23:53, December 16, 2013 (UTC)
Just wondering why my revision on the page was revised by Thomas0802. I was given no reason.
- Poorly written with grammar errors and linking redirects. Leave the introduction how it is. --Thomas0802 • (talk • edits) 21:49, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
I was reading through this today and the information in certain paragraphs is not an accurate representation of the section headers. For instance in the description section it offers information on the Crew system and monetery system. Both very important things but perhaps better placed in their own sections.
The description section would be better served as a quick overview of the entire gameplay system, setting and plot rather than focusing on two sections as it currently does.
Another point I'd like to pick up on is the poorly written sumary section. For instance in the opening line Online is called a "multiplayer mode" for GTA V and the final sentence states that it is "...considered and treated by Rockstar Games as a stand-alone title." Having both the fact that it can be treated as a multyplayer mode of V and as a stand alone title is fine but it doesn't make much sense as it is currently written.
Another sentence, "Grand Theft Auto Online was released on October 1, 2013, 14 days after the actual game." is poorly written and doesn't make sense. Due to the link the "actual game." must refer to GTA V however this would again presume that the "actual game" is the single player mode and that the Online content is just a part of the "acutal" aka "single player" game.
I attempted to make changes however they were reverted. Perhaps someone else could give it a go.
