Welcome to my User Page!
Wazzup GTA fans? I'm Tony. Welcome to my User Page. Anything you want to discuss with me, please, leave a message on my Talk Page and I'll get back to you.
I'm Tony (as mentioned above), a proud patroller/moderator of the GTA Wiki. I was born in the agricultural trove of Blythe, California on April 28, 1998 and I currently reside there. I'm a gamer, thinker, and an awkward-as-hell individual who believes that he should master the power of the Thu'um to eradicate his enemies. I'm a nice guy, so if you want to stir up a conversation with me, go for it :).
Me on GTA Wiki...
Since May 5th, 2012, I've been editing on this wiki and I amassed a total of 2,000+ edits. Funny story how I discovered GTA Wiki. It was 2010 and it began when I wanted to look up cheat codes for Vice City Stories. In the search results, I saw a "GTA Wiki"; "Wiki" = "Wiki"pedia. I thought that it was Wikipedia exclusive to the GTA series. I clicked on the link and, ho-ho-ho, an entire library of everything GTA! I read the characters and vehicle pages and gained substantial knowledge of the games. Heck, I even learned the smallest things in the games that I never heard, thought, and/or discovered within the GTA games I own. Oh, and I found the cheat codes.
It wasn't until two years later that I finally edited my first page: the Buffalo because it is my favorite car in The Ballad of Gay Tony and lemme tell ya, that edit was crap (it was undone about an hour later). After learning of my mistake, I went to recon around the wiki and learned how edits are handled and done. Soon after, I learned to edit myself, apply/make templates, code (with some help) and along the way, I made some new friends and editing partners, became a patroller/moderator and alot more. From then to now, I thank the GTA community for all of the help and the fun and memories I have amassed in these three years and hopefully see what the future brings.
Notable Creations and Ideas Made By Tony
The Welcome template - I created this template back in 2013 as a way to replace the bland default welcome message for the new users. Basically, the welcome template's goal is to help navigate new users around the Wiki to rules/policies, MoS, Staff, etc. It took a long time for the template to be put into use (I think it was implemented this year). When it was finally implemented, it looked awesome and I was glad that it branched out to be used by our afilliates.
The Manuals of Style - Pretty much the majority of the big Wikis on Wikia have a manual of style or two, which are rules and guidelines on how pages should be edited. I went to go snoop around various big Wikis to learn on how their manuals of styles take form and how they are effective on their pages. After going back on GTA Wiki and noticed that the only manual of style here was Jonathan Banton's Manual of Style for Vehicles. So, realizing that this Wiki needed a manual of style (or seven of them), I, along with the staff members and the rest of the community, set out to create the seven manual of styles and so far, they look pretty damn amazing and helpful for the new users here.
The GTA Wikia Crew - Before GTA V's release, when Rockstar announced that the game will support crews, I thought it would be a good idea to formulate a crew and have our fellow GTA Wikiers assist and battle each other on GTA Online. I created the crew with a strong envision of it, but sadly, it has barely come around to be mentioned or even be played by the members enrolled in it. Also, to be frank, I kind of brushed it aside and never really thought about it.
GTA V Garage Collection
The Michael Collection
The Franklin Collection
Ah, Franklin Clinton, my middle brother's character. Most of these vehicles are pretty much tuners and gang cars, preferrably his choice of automotive style.
The Trevor Collection
When my littlest brother (yeah, I know, he's not really old enough to play this, get over it) keeps vehicles like these, he tends to show the Trevor Philips side and does some ample reformations on the overall vehicle bodies.
GTA Online Collection
I tend to make my vehicles in Online less conspicuous; I don't really like the modify the vehicle's body up the ass, I just change the performance and that's all. Although the vehicles are less conspicuous like I said, I can't really tell if this is a good thing or bad thing because there are some players that will deliberately destroy my vehicles if I am in them or they are in sight by me. Oh well, Bad Sport rating for them!
