Before we start, please see the Community Noticeboard - got a question there.

Also name a GTA game(s) you want to do transcripts for so there won't be any edit conflicts. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 20:34, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there.

I had noticed that you and User:WildBrick142 had been adding transcripts in mission pages. Can I help out? Must the transcripts be shown in another page (Mission name/Transcript) or be shown in the mission page itself?

Please reply to me as soon as possible. Thank you. MarcusCheeKJ (talk) 02:37, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

Also Wild Brick is adding the same template. So,Why can't I use that template? Also I have remove all the templates from that page(just kept the dialogues). Hope you are happy now. Hunter(Talk/Stalk) 15:39, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

I noticed you added transcript on the mission page. Do I have to create seperate page or add transcript on the mission page?Hunter(Talk/Stalk) 17:44, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

Also I have cleaned Puncture Wounds/Transcript page. I rechecked and some things were wrong. I have fixed them.Hunter(Talk/Stalk) 17:46, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

Rename pics

Due to my lack of attention-paying, I have incorrectly named a bunch of images.

Could you rename the following?;

All of them need the number after the mission title, e.g. "DriveMistyForMe2-GTAIII.png"

Thanks in advance V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 20:03, March 29, 2015 (UTC)


Need renaming too, same way (number after mission name) V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 20:07, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

I did it again. Could you rename these pictures?

V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 13:48, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

I've renamed them already. DocVinewood (talk) 13:56, March 30, 2015 (UTC)


We've had another troller on the RfP page. I have made a decision to lock the page until another staff position is available, I also discussed a little with Sean. Leo68 (talk) 04:40, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

See Leo's talk page for the template idea. smurfy (coms) 05:11, March 30, 2015 (UTC)
Tony has expressed an interest in returning to a Patroller position (as he is inactive). We can move either Dodo or JBanton to inactive because they are not active, and haven't been in some time. Tony plans to step up his editing so I'll leave it down to you. I'd suggest JBanton, Dodo is more active and has been active more recently. Leo68 (talk) 01:29, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
i have a question i was wondering (if i ever get the thought) i was wondering how would i be able to become part of the gta wikia staff?TevanoRCMP (talk) 15:35, April 20, 2015 (UTC)


OK I will work on GTA Vice City.

The Rockstar guy

Hey Vault, what happened to that guy from R*? I don't see him on the staff page. Was he a fraud? --Sasquatch101 (talk) 21:35, April 4, 2015 (UTC)


Worth taking a photo of. It's a GTA wiki easter egg! Leo68 (talk) 01:52, April 5, 2015 (UTC)


I hope so, I've wanted it back there for the past 11 years. Leo68 (talk) 17:37, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

I sure am. It would be a walk for Arsenal but could be interesting. Southampton are living proof that underdogs can beat huge clubs. Leo68 (talk) 18:04, April 5, 2015 (UTC)


Wonder if we'd be better served with a more generic "Product" template?

Fields to include:

Type (can change the header of the infobox - e.g. Beverage, Snack, Cigarette, Cereal),



Real life equivalent

Game appearances

etc...  smurfy (coms) 21:52, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

I'll do some work on it now. 

The changed header based on input parameters can be seen in a lot of the template work Wildbrick has done in the last couple of weeks. They have been used for a while on "game" fields to allow you to enter a short code (e.g. V, O) to return the full game title.

e.g. One I did yesterday:

{{#ifeq: {{{requirements|}}} | y | <small>System Requirements</small> |<small>SPECIFICATIONS</small>}}

If "requirements" input  = "y", then print "System Requirements", otherwise, print "Specifications".

I did some template clean-up yesterday. Particularly all the staff warning message templates, I removed the "edit" option for the section once they are put on a user talk page. When someone edits, they actually edit the template, not their talk page. I've nearly done it myself, even experienced users like Enigma24 did it.  smurfy (coms) 22:30, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Done. Can probably be applied to most of these. smurfy (coms) 00:11, April 6, 2015 (UTC)


Hi Tom. A minor thing, but I've just looked through the inactive staff listed, and only JBanton and Istalo still have their staff rights. In that case, the other users should be moved to the former staff section, as they're no longer staff members. SJWalker (talk) 22:31, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Promotion Opportunity


This is Jorge from Wikia. I'm reaching out to you a few other admins about a potential promotion opportunity I wanted to run by you and your GTA community. To help spotlight your community and celebrate the release of GTA V on PC, we are considering partnering with Nvidia to host an expert blog post about how to mod your PC to get the most out of GTA V's fancy new graphics. Our hope is that we could get your permission to promote the blog using a mainpage and article page promotion module. We would put it up ourselves and take it down after a few week or a month (how long its promoted is negotiable). Is this something you think is possible? Let me know when you can by leaving me a message on my talk page!

All the best, Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 22:15, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

New Page Name

The page Backpacks has info on backpacks and duffel bags. There's not enough info to split the pages so I think there needs to be a new name but I can't think of one. If you think of one can you rename it? Leo68 (talk) 02:33, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Xbox Live Issues

Hey, are you having issues signing into Xbox Live, Xbox One specifically? MONKEYPOLICE188 (talk) | (stalk) 11:51, April 13, 2015 (UTC)

Andre's Probation

As I'm sure you're aware, Andre's probation ends on Wednesday. It's probably best that I set up the vote as this is the first occasion. Voting will be limited to admins and above but the patrollers and users can comment. I'll stick it on the community noticeboard. Given that there are eight voters we'll put on a bureaucratic veto if it ties. There will need to be five positive and his rights will remain during the vote. I'll also add this info onto the policy page. Leo68 (talk) 01:45, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, bud, I need you to block this shithead. There's more on the way so be on high alert. Mortsnarg (talk) 04:06, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Nevermind, just be on the lookout. Mortsnarg (talk) 04:20, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Well Tom, If you'd been here yesterday, you would probably understand where I am coming from. Please join the chat. smurfy (coms) 21:05, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

New section

Hi Tom how you make your information template how i gonna create my own please help Thanks.~Seanharvey.manero


Istalo has noted he will not be active again so we should remove him from inactive I don't think he'll work enough to retain his rights. I also think Dodo should be made inactive he hasn't edited at all in the three months since his demotion. Leo68 (talk) 15:54, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

I altered the Community Messages. You may want to explain the situation relating persons unnamed in chat. Leo68 (talk) 16:26, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

Myth hunter's sig colour needs to be changed and we need a flag of India icon for his staff page. Leo68 (talk) 17:05, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

The template Gtawiki staff also needs to be changed.Signature (talk/stalk/blog) 17:08, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

I want this as my staff pic.Myth hunter


Noticed something

I was just lurking through the user list and found two users that kept their bureaucrat powers for some reason; GuildKnight (moved to Grand Theft Wiki) and Thai420 (disappeared) V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 19:31, April 21, 2015 (UTC)


Tom, I have spoken to a staff member at Community Central about the demotion of GuildKnight, however Thai420 may not be allowed to be demoted because I believe he was our founder. I also informed WildBrick of this.

Also, new Patroller for Dodo's old position? I asked WildBrick if he'd reconsider after rejecting it last month. I can't think of anyone else. Leo68 (talk) 04:29, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

If Wildbrick isn't interested, I'd suggest User:ToJ should be shoulder-tapped next. smurfy (coms) 04:51, April 22, 2015 (UTC)
I'd recommend at least three months of probation for TevanoRCMP. Signature (talk/stalk/blog) 14:17, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

What would be best here is to do what Leon did with myself and 558 when his admin position became vacant: Ask the three people you've all suggested, then set up an election on the Community Noticeboard if all of them are interested. SJWalker (talk) 15:06, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

Both Tevano and WildBrick expressed an interest so I've set the vote up. If I've made a mess of it, you can drop it all on my head. SJWalker (talk) 17:54, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

Transcripts in GTA IV

Hi Tom. Can I volunteer myself to add transcripts in missions in GTA IV, and maybe in it's episodes too? Cause nobody had been adding transcripts to this missions. MC (MyComputer) 09:36, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

Borough/Landscape/Area Infobox

Hello! I've been looking through pages and I'm glad that the "Structure" template was added! I still think we should have some more for info though. I apologize if I sound rude, but I think having something for a location like.... Outlook or Raton Canyon if you're talking about the country. I think we need a infobox for non-specific areas that are scattered throughout the GTA landscape. I don't know, just an idea. You wanna build on this idea or something, please do so! Thank you! Mortsnarg (talk) 18:46, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

I totally agree. One of my next goals is to improve neighborhood/district pages and I also wanted to suggest a new infobox for these locations, similar to the Borough infobox. DocVinewood (talk) 21:29, April 22, 2015 (UTC)


I believe that guy is a vandel thats why i think he deleted all the data from the main page and a hacker because he just made himself staff. i would suggest an IP Ban on that guy.TevanoRCMP (talk) 17:22, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

Also it has come to my attention that they are a hacker because have you noticed the edit change was not mentioned in wiki activityTevanoRCMP (talk) 17:24, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I added a inter-language link to Chinese gta wiki and didn't remove any contents.Ffaarr (talk) 01:12, April 24, 2015 (UTC)


Boomer was blocked twice before Jeff banned him for failing to follow the rules. It may not be fair but policy is the third block is always permanent. Leo68 (talk) 03:37, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

The vote says the ban will remain. As for the vandal allegations against you, I don't believe them.

For now, where does Sasquatch stand in this incident? Leo68 (talk) 17:55, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

Did you ever deal with Gunshow? Myth hunter suggested it could be him, he has a HUGE grudge with B and S. Leo68 (talk) 18:08, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

Block Vandal

Can you block PunjabiNights AKA Gunshow who is making a mockery of the CNB. Also can you give me admin rights on the Vandal wiki as Gunshow is there now leaving tons of hate mail on my wall. Thanks. --Sasquatch101 (talk) 22:37, April 26, 2015 (UTC)
