RE: Commendation

Thanks Jeff, I was just sick of seeing them all fighting so I thought I'd try and stop it. As for the Administrator thing, thanks, infact, I might apply now! Thank you very much!

VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 12:37, March 21, 2013 (UTC)

Apologies

Hi Jeff. I was thinking I could write and aticle in which I would apologise. I know Sasquatch's block isn't my fault, but I have my "contribution" since I sent him a harsh message at first.Dodo8 logoDodo8 Talk


Request

Hi Jeff. I have requested to be an Admin and would be glad if you voted. Thanks, VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 08:16, March 23, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Congratulations

Thanks Jeff! I think I should be alright for now.

Thanks again, VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 08:49, March 24, 2013 (UTC)


Achievement Badges

Hi Jeff. I was just wondering, why don't we have achievement badges activated on the GTA Wiki? I think it would be a nice thing to have and it would make people edit a bit more in order to get more badges.

Think about it,

VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 13:49, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, having badges usually leads to people making bad edits just to earn badges. We had a bureaucrats-only vote a while back and unanimously decided not to have badges on this wiki. Jeff (talk|stalk) 15:36, March 24, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Ok then. --VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 15:39, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

RE:

Jeff, Joshua is back again, he vanalize Mikey's page and could go after yours, just giving you the heads up and he aldo added himself on my friend and aillias list. Cloudkit01 (talk) 03:32, March 25, 2013 (UTC)JF

Someone sorted it already, thanks for the heads up. Jeff (talk|stalk) 04:23, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Vandal

Ok, I understand it, i wanted to report him but he was blocked for three hours, so OK, all vandal-edits are now reverted, the problem is, the pages who he vandalized were most pages who I edit in the past, I don't know if the target was me or something, I will report him if he comes back, alright.

Good choice. I take it you saw my message on the GTA Wiki Staff talk page then? If existing patrollers want promotion to adminship, they can request the page be unlocked so they can add their request and we and the community can vote of course. Messi1983 (talk) 09:38, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Vehicle admin

I know it's probably not going to make a difference now, but surely prior to GTA V we will need an admin that specialises in vehicles, I was planning on applying in April, but that now seems impossible. Will it be possible again fo. Me to be promoted to admin? Surely it would do the wiki a lot of good to have a good bit of emphasis on the "Auto" bit of Grand Theft Auto. JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 20:46, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Re:Vandal

I know the rules when a vandal is suspected of doing vandalism, it's that I wasn't active on that day he vandalised. Not to be talking about him again, but what is his motive? After looking through his contributions, he only went after me blantly and Cloudkit1 less. I thought that it was when "that" happened and he went after "him" for getting the "position". Out of the nine patrollers, why did he go after me? Mr. T. (talk) 22:25, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, what did I do to get vandalize like this Tony, why. Cloudkit01 (talk) 23:00, March 25, 2013 (UTC)Cloud
Hell if I know, but now that you've let him know that he upsets you he's gonna keep doing it. I can semi-protect your userpages to keep him off them though. Jeff (talk|stalk) 23:38, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Proceed To Add My Talk Page Protection

Do it please? Apparently Joshualverburg struck back again.

Mr. T. (talk) 22:27, March 27, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Jeff, could you protect mine as well? Or should I protect it myself? Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 10:59, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Do it yourself, practice using the admin tools. Jeff (talk|stalk) 15:04, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
I thought so, thanks.

Linking Wikis

Hi Jeff. Sasquatch asked me if I could add the GTA Myths Wiki and the GTA Fanon Wiki to the main page like he has on the GTA Myths Wiki, so I said I'll ask you just incase I can't. So, can we?

VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 15:24, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Sure, go for it. Jeff (talk|stalk) 18:23, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 18:35, March 28, 2013 (UTC)


I'm really confused on making the portal for the main page. It just isn't going right, Could you please take a look at it and try to sort it out or get some one who can to do it.

Thanks, VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 19:56, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

I'll take a look at it over the weekend. Kinda busy with some pre-Spring Break schoolwork. Jeff (talk|stalk) 20:59, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 07:52, March 29, 2013 (UTC)

I only visit it sparingly, so never noticed it until you told me. Hope he gets it up and running again whatever the problem is. Probably a server problem. Messi1983 (talk) 23:10, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

On another note, since JBanton has now been promoted as Admin, we now have 5 admins, and since three of us are B'crats. I now think 8 pairs of eyes and 8 people with the ability to block is now enough. Messi1983 (talk) 23:11, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
I agree. We can cap things at 3 Bureaucrats, 5 admins and 8 patrollers. If a patroller goes inactive (and Bob Cutlass is pretty close to it) we can move them to inactive and promote someone. Jeff (talk|stalk) 00:38, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
After the current requests are done. I am protecting the page again. I feel like NULL AND VOIDING both Patroller requests as we do not need them. Messi1983 (talk) 01:17, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. I hate to sink RfPs that might pass, but everyone knew the page was locked down and only unlocked for Dodo's RfA, so requesting promotion at this time wasn't a great idea. Jeff (talk|stalk) 02:02, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Once those are done, I am locking the page and putting a notice in saying we do not need anymore Admins or Patrollers for the time being. Messi1983 (talk) 05:52, March 29, 2013 (UTC)

RfA Reason

Hey Jeff, just wanted to say that I didn't know that GTA Wiki had a maximum limit of staff. After you undid my RfA, with your summary, I scouted around and looked for an obvious reason. Then I found it. Messi said so himself that we have "3 B'crats, 5 admins. Eight good eyes are enough now." I will remain my position as a patroller for now on. I think it's best as you completely lock the page after Cloudkit1's request has been determined. Mr. T. (talk) 07:00, March 29, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I understand. What if I request of first of May? Is that good? BTW, you can close the request. And respond here/on my talk page to my question, please. Dodo8 logoDodo8 Talk

Jeansowhaty (I think that's his name)

I just thought, since Jeansowhaty is always in chat, why don't we make him the first ever Chat Moderator? It would be good and we could use that Chat Mod Template.

Think about it, VaultBoy Tom (Talk to me this way) 14:36, April 1, 2013 (UTC)


          The name's Jeansowaty2, Tommy.
          I know him from editing the Skinhead's page and a couple of other pages.
          About the Chat Moderator thing, I know you didn't ask me, but my opinion was already stated here.
          And Jeff, read the message below, please.

Archive Page

Hey Jeff, how do I make a archive page for my talkpage, cause I got like 50 messages and thry are getting my talkpage full. Let me know ok, and sorry not thanking you, I was just at the other wiki to be on Youtube, if you see Mikey and Thomas, tell them that I'm going to be on the Youtube show and get them to congradulate me.

No worries. Speaking of chat, based on what you wrote on Ilan's talk page and what I have seen through my own two eyes, especially on User talk:Tony30000, I have removed chat moderator rights from User:Cloudkit01. Messi1983 (talk) 08:08, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

Policy

Hi Jeff. I'm going to make some changes on the GTA Wiki:Policy page, regarding grammar and sub-pages that are not listed. BTW, what would you think of changing the main page of the wiki? I' have some ideeas for it, so it could be more "attractive".Dodo8 Talk

Game Guides Display

Hello again, as you may or may not know recently Wikia has released a new version of our Game Guides application on both the Apple Store and the Google Play store. We are hoping to target our audiences even further and try to bring this app more to their attention. For this reason, we have created a template promoting our application that we would like to place on your site with your permission of course. The template can be seen here (it shows what it would look like on both a light themed and dark themed wiki). The template would live in the upper-right column of this wiki, right below the advertisement. Please get back to me if it's ok to go ahead and enable this on here. - Wagnike2 (talk) 14:32, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Jeff. I was thinkinf of rea-applying for Adminship. The Tom accepts and he also would vote 'yes'. VaultBouy is a agreed, too. But Dan says we have enough admins. I'm so frustrated, I added like 10 pages today and also did 200 edits. While Winter Moon only edits once a week... But I can't put the blame on him. I wouldn't want him to be demoted because of me. Yet, I could be the 6th admin? That way there will be 3 B'cats, 6 Admins, and 6 Patrollers, which seems fine to me. What is your opinion? I really want to contribute to this wiki, I always have tell Mickey, Ilan or VaultBoy to unlock articles for me...Dodo8 Talk

Sorry, but I agree with Dan - five admins is enough. Jeff (talk|stalk) 18:15, May 2, 2013 (UTC)
Then, can you take in consideration demoting Winter Moon to patroller?Dodo8 Talk
No. In fact, that suggestion greatly lowers my inclination to support any future bid for administrator from you. Jeff (talk|stalk) 18:17, May 2, 2013 (UTC)
My "suggestion" is anyway useless considering the fact that all the admins are active.Dodo8 Talk
Ok then. I thought better. I'll just patiently wait until one admin becomes inactive. Sorry for my "suggestion".Dodo8 Talk
" But I can't put the blame on him. I wouldn't want him to be demoted because of me." Did you read this? I said I din't want him to be demoted at first. But it seems you have something against me. I am civil now, and I also have a lot of edits and much experience as an admin. Why you treat me so bad?Dodo8 Talk
Jeff, I don't wanna be nosey and this is just my opinion, but I think Dodo has helped the wiki a lot.
Not NOW, but if members of the staff start being inactive for too long, I think Dodo can be trusted to help the wiki, with admin abilities.

Request

Jeff try and get that other account of yours on chat soon. Messi1983 (talk) 02:20, May 4, 2013 (UTC)

Hi

Hi Jeff. No, I'm not here to ask you for Admin rights request again.

I feel bad for what I said last week. I understand that there are enough Admins already. But after you said No, I was very frustrated since that day I done 200 edits and added 10 articles. I'm sorry for talking about Winter Moon, Ilan told me about how a good editor he was back in the day. I just want you to consider my promotion, not now, but in a few weeks or more, because I'll try to the best for the wiki.

Recently, I created the header (that image beside the navigation) and The Tom added the new background. Also I asked a Staff member to help with out staff tags problem (when Ilan has to add Chat Moderator rights so the "Patroller" would be displayed).

Some people told me that sending you messages led you to believe that I try to be favorized by you. That was never my intention. My only intention currently is to be your friend. Even if you won't accept my bids, I want to have a nice friendship.

See you soon.

Usigned Topic

I have a question, how do I become part of the wiki staff? Like admin or something like that.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Caseyr2000 (talkcontribs)

Linking the wikis

Hey Jeff. I don't want to bug you or anything, but I was wondering if you could add the GTA Myths Wiki to the home page. I asked Vaultboy a month ago and he said it was cool with you, but you were busy at that time. I was thinking it would be good to add the GTA Fan-Fiction Wiki & R* Games Wiki since they are affiliates too. With the backround now changed, and the wiki getting ready for V, now would be a great time to add to the GTA Wiki's broad reach of GTA related things through a link. Let me know what you want to do. :) Sasquatch101 (talk) 04:09, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

New idea for the wiki

Hey man hope all is good, I've been talking to Mikey about a idea I've had about a new small set of Maintenance Staff, which are like janitors cleaning up the wiki, but they don't have admin powers (I.E Banning people) but they can change titles, changing polls (when ever they come to the wiki), tidy up pages like stubs etc.. I hope you get my jist and I will look forward to hearing from you back. Cheers Instulent (talk) 20:38, May 18, 2013 (UTC)

New emotes for chat

Hey Jeff, I'm trying to make some new emotes for this chat, but the problem is, I don't know how to make a emote, if there's a page about emotes so I can make one, let me know if you like the idea okay. Cloudkit01 (talk) 16:21, May 25, 2013 (UTC)Cloud

Patrollers

One of the patrollers has become inactive. Instulent is wondering if we can allow him to request a promotion to patroller because of this, before I give him an answer I thought I'd get your opinion, so let me know. Tom Talk 18:29, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Go ahead and let him apply. I haven't been following this wiki for about a month (I was doing term papers in school, just finished, haven't got back into an editing mood yet) so I won't be voting, but I'm alright with letting him apply. Jeff (talk|stalk) 20:54, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hey

Could you give your opinion on my suggestion on the community noticeboard? Boomer8 (talk) 05:09, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Proposal

Check out the GTA Wiki:Community Noticeboard. Sasquatch101 (talk) 03:10, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

Well

I seen your message on the Community Noticeboard. Unfortunately, there's no way I could prove that I have what it requires without looking like I'm desperate. Just to let you know I improved my behaviour (I think twice before posting a comment), I know how to deal with vandals (since I was an admin on 2 other wikis), and since Ilan told me about the image policy (August 2012, I think), I always respect it. Also, I'm good at creating templates (BTW, have you seen the new affiliates portal on the main page?). Now, I'm not trying to profit of the situation. If you ever consider of promoting patrollers to admins, just let me know. Currently, I'm happy with my Patroller rank, and if the staff considers the number of admins is enough, I'll accept the situation. I only want to improve our wiki. Cheers.Dodo8 Talk

Honestly, you're pretty close, if it weren't for the temper thing I'd easily vote yes and I have noticed that you've improved. I was more just explaining why I can be pretty hard to please when it comes to potential admin candidates. Jeff (talk|stalk) 17:38, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
Ok :) See you around!Dodo8 Talk
Jeff, it's so annoying! People keep adding the new screenshots over and over again with bad names! I already added them with good names and high quality, but they just won't listen.Dodo8 Talk
Yes, it's really annoying. Thanks for letting me know, I've gotten WAY behind in my janitorial work but I'll do some cleanup and delete some useless images. If you see any particular images you think need to go, tag 'em with {{delete}} so I can find them easier. Jeff (talk|stalk) 15:16, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
Ok. After I'm starting to tag the recent ones. I'll tell you when I'm done.Dodo8 Talk
Done, check the Category:Delete.Dodo8 Talk


Glitch?

Hey Jeff, sorry if this sounds a bit weird.. but the undo button isn't working for me. I reverted a edit by someone a couple of minutes ago and earlier today, but it didn't remove it.. Could you check it please to see if it's just me or not. Ciao Instulent (talk) 15:20, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

Can you tell me which article it was you tried to undo an edit on? Jeff (talk|stalk) 15:29, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it was the Wanted Level page. Ciao Instulent (talk) 15:32, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
Apparently you somehow undid the bad edit, and then undid your own edit. Or something like that. I'm not sure precisely what happened, but the article's fine now and undo is working. Jeff (talk|stalk) 15:35, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
Ok thanks for taking your time for that. Ciao Instulent (talk) 15:36, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, Jeff! Could you replace this image that got deleted on the Michael (GTA V) page, please?

Take care. HebbyDGouchemen (talk here) 16:19, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll do it. Might take a couple of days for me to get to that specific one though. I've got to sort through all the images that were uploaded for GTAV and I'm starting on Trevor's page. I'll do Michael's after I finish with Trevor's. Jeff (talk|stalk) 17:27, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
You should add my images from the Grand Theft Auto V/Screenshots. They have better qualities than the current ones.Dodo8 Talk

Sorry

Hey Jeff, I would like to apologize about yesterday, as I was having a very bad day and usually I'm not the real me when things like this happen. Once again I apologize for my actions, and I hope to make it back up for everyone who was affected the dispute.

Your sincerely,
