Patroller

I guess there is. I know Smashbro's interested, anyone else you think would be? Tom Talk 20:57, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

TBH, in my opinion, I also think some editors here should also be patrollers such as Carl Johnson Jr.  Smashbro8 (talk) 21:00, January 24, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Well let them know. We'll do the vote the usual way, I don't think we need the whole election setup for this. Tom Talk 12:03, January 25, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I agree! Me, Carl Johnson Jr. and DocVinewood are the most common and most promising non-staff editors on the wiki. We should be patrollers. I'll ask The Tom if I should ask them. Smashbro8 (talk) 16:21, January 25, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Opinions

Me and a fellow editor Tecchnoman127 have different opinions on the way a sentence is stated. He thinks it should be this way: "However, following a series of incidents culminating with him being drugged, Michael's family leaves him, taking his car with him." I think i should be "culminating with him taking drugs". Drugged means to take drugs unwillingly or when you are in a physical or mental state not allowing you to prevent the affects of drugs. It makes more sense my way because Jimmy does not force him to take drugs he just asks him if he wants to try the drugs and Michael tries it . What do you think?

About images of Most Wanted missions

Thanks for your advice about the image-upload policy, It's okay and ready to upload a new set of those images with corrected naming and license, but still wonder is it able to rename/delete uploaded images?

That explains why I got a message from that account saying "why did you block me?". Good spot Tom, I missed that one. Tom Talk 01:03, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

He left me this message; "ahhhhhh i dont want to argue but tell your friend vaultboy to unblock me do if he dont unblock me i will show up any users what he want to do." I have no idea what he's trying to say after "unblock me" but it's definitely him. Tom Talk 12:12, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

Gangs' Names

Salutations, kind sir, I'm desperately need your help in my endless battle with some major mistakes in this fine Wikia.

Some gangs from GTA IV are named fraglantly wrong. Some names were never mentioned or used in game and such occasion creates unexpeted contrast with beautiful and wide discussed content in the rest of this Wikia.

I'm especially worrying about Yardies (which for some reason named Hillside Posse), African-Americans or Firefly Projects Gang (which without any reason named M.O.B.) and especially about my compatriots, such as Petrovic and Faustin gangs. After some wrong note of some too clever Russian, they were all renamed in Bratvas, despite the fact, that Russian gangs are called Bratva very rarely, only between friends in meaning of "organized bullies" and with highly sarcastic tone. I suggest renaming all Russian gangs into "Mafiya", as respected Rockstar called them in Multiplayer. Or, as some other well respected user suggested, unite them articles under one article of Organized Russian Crime, just like in the police database.

I hope you'll find time to answer me so we can work out this tragic accident.

Thanks for your time, your Orto Dogge (talk) 15:03, February 22, 2014 (UTC)


Thank you very very much, dear VaultBoy, you just did a very important job for this Wikia and for me as well, I'm very grateful.
I'm also terribly sorry, because I've forgot about mentioning one more article with the wrong name, and it's about gang too. The Lost Brotherhood was never called this way in the whole series. The Lost MC would be more correct.
Thank you very much, you're the best. Orto Dogge (talk) 18:57, February 23, 2014 (UTC)


Hello again, VaultBoy! Your previous help was much appreciated and this is the reason why I am, as all selfish people all over the world, asking for your help again. As you might noticed, I'm deeply concerned about gangs in GTA IV, because the system created by Rockstar there was very not-linear and very realistic. The peak of my efforts will be the most not-linear gang: African-Americans. They're not even the gang, it's just numerous of gangs all over town, so I don't know, how the article about them is supposed to be built. Please, check my opinion on that matter here. This is the big decision, so I need your approval and your opinion on the future article's name. The reasons, why the present name is unappropriate, I put in the text you'll see in link. So please, if you're not too busy, let me know what do you think about all this and how you want to see this article reorganised. Thank you in advance! Orto Dogge (talk) 15:20, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

News, and image problems and confusion.

On News, I'm not sure if you're the next one to make the next news post, but if you do, according to the guy at wikia, the images that were lost during mid december and early january are lost forever http://i.imgur.com/feEAhKi.png . So until their entire image hosting system is fixed, should you notify everybody here on the wiki that just in case more images are lost, that we save our images, or upload them to other image hosts just in case for backup?

And you said on the 3rd that the image problem seems to be dying away, but almost all of the images that I've uploaded since november 9th are all gone, including others, and it just seems like a clusterfuck of confusion. According to you, only a few images are still broken now, but the guy at wikia says they are gone forever. Whats the truth? I'm confuuused as hell Snugeez (talk) 01:35, February 24, 2014 (UTC)

Pages with wrong name

Hi, LS11sVaultBoy. I just wanted to say that this page is with the wrong name. It should be called Vinewood Souvenirs, since its the first mission in the series of Vinewood Souvenirs missions. You can confirm this in the description of this video.[1] (with i also posted on that page).

However, there is already a page called Vinewood Souvenirs, this one serves as a direct link to all the missions of souvenirs. I think its useless to have a page just for this, since its only 6 missions, so I marked the page for deletion. But if you disagree with me and think that this page is helpful, you don't need to delete it.

So, I wanted you to change the name of the Nigel and Mrs. Thornhill page to Vinewood Souvenirs and delete that Vinewood Souvenirs page if you agree with me that its not worth it to keep it. I don't know if you are the right person to ask this, but if not, just send me a message telling me who i should talk. Thank you. 558050 (Talk 20:51, 8 March, 2014 (UTC)

RE:RE:Pages with wrong name

Thanks, man.

Family, Mob and other names

Hello again, Tom. Thanks again for all your attention to my questions and requests, it's very important for me. And I've got one more. Do we really need to use term "crime family" every time? Just Family looks way more accurate and laconically. What do you think? Just "Ancelotti Family" instead of "Ancelotti crime family"? I guess the second option, especially in gang lists, creates too much noise.

And it's also very important for me to know your opinion onthat page's name. Is it okay? I couldn't find any shorter name for them, that don't even call ourselves anyhow shorter during the dialogues. I personally would prefer the term "Homeboys" for example, but it was never used in-game.

I also suggest to call all other gangs "Mob", when we don't know their exact name. For example, like Bonelli Mob. This leads us to the question of unappropriate name Albanians. Albanians is ethnicity, not a gang's name. We probably should rename it to "Albanian Mob" too.

Thanks in advance for everything, you're the best! Orto Dogge (talk) 12:32, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Crew leadership

Yo Tom. I've been wondering about something. Who's actually the GTAWC Leader from the GTA Wiki Crew?

AoD and skinheads are two seperate gangs

Why did you delete my skinhead/punks page? And why, when I type in skinheads in the search box, does it redirect me to the Angels of Death? There is no evidence that the two are part of the same group, much less even associated with each other. The skinheads deserve their own page. Polpun (talk) 20:34, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

Minor Turbulence:

I have a few questions about the mission:

1: When Trevor tells air traffic control there's a change of personnel and destination on the Cargo Plane (so people don't get suspicious), do the two P-996 Lazer pilots know that Trevor is the hijacker, or do they assume he's part of Merryweather?

2: Why did the US Army intervene and shoot the plane down? Surely Merryweather and the US Army aren't affiliated as rivals, so why would they intervene in their business and tell them to go "back to base"?

Question

Hello, just asking what do you think about this? I made the DLC vehicle links color coded to make it easier to see what DLC pack they appeared in (done the same with GTA V weapons). I know I said "Feel free to undo the edit if it's not necessary" but I was hoping that a staff member would undo it instead of some random guy who didn't even give a proper reason (or any reason at all). Anyway, just asking for your opinion on the color coded links (feel free to undo the weapons and keep vehicles as it is if there's no need for that)

Hey VaultBoy. This guy needs a block. He's the one who wrote this ^^^^^ (the Derrick Hale thing). I warned him several times to change his attitude and telling him that this article is not about him, however, he refuses to listen. I think he needs a punishment for incivility, use of profanity towards users (that's me), and removing content from the Derrick Hale page. He also threatened to "handle this ANOTHER WAY" meaning he probably may tell Wikia or someone else. He also claimed he doesn't give "two flying fu**s about this wiki". Punish him please. I'm tired of warning this guy. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:20, March 25, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

A Friendly Suggestion

Hello, Tom! I was just thinking... Why don't you guys change the welcome intro on the Main Page like this: "Welcome to the gta wiki"?

I guess it would look cool as it strongly resembles the GTA logo. But anyway, it was just a suggestion. It's completely your choice if you would like to pass down my idea to the other staffs. :)

Will be eagerly waiting for your reply.

Cars in GTA V page

Hey Tom,

Just wanted to fill you in on why this page was put up. We've been looking at some of the most commonly used search terms, and the vast majority of people searching use "GTA V cars" instead of "GTA V vehicles". In order to help the Wiki increase its presence in search results for cars and vehicles, adding this page would be extremely helpful since it contains the necessary search term in the URL. It's a dumb technicality that repeats some of the existing information, but such is the way of search engine parsing.

Just wanted to run it buy you and a few of the other admins to see if you're okay with it. If not, that's fine.

Thanks!

Watch_Dogs Instant Expert Chat

Hi LS11sVaultBoy,

We are currently putting together an Instant Expert for Watch_Dogs, similar to -- but more elaborate than -- the ones we did for The Elder Scrolls Online and Titanfall. Instead of giving you a questionnaire to fill out, I'd like to schedule a time to chat about Watch_Dogs over Skype, AIM, or whatever chat client you prefer. I know you're mostly active here on GTA, but I thought you might be interested in Watch_Dogs due to the similarities they share as far as gameplay goes. If we could chat some time tomorrow morning, that would be great. Let me know what times work for you and how you'd like to have the chat.

Attitude towards UsersEditEdit

Hey Cloudkit. You need to start replying to your messages, even if they aren't necessary. Being a staff member isn't all about who makes the most edits here, it's about being civil and helpful to others. You gotta change that cause that's not how staff are supposed to operate. Now another user asked you a question, which you could at least have responded saying why you reverted his edit, because he needs to know what he did wrong before he does it again and gets blocked. You have to remember, you a staff member and as staff members we should be civil and helpful towards other users...unless they cause a little too much trouble (vandalism). [3] ([4]) 23:25, May 20, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8
