==Correct==
 
 
Hi Jeff, I want to know , what are the things that I didn't follow the GTA Wiki rules in it so I can correct my mistakes.[[User:Kingrhem|Kingrhem]] ([[User talk:Kingrhem|talk]]) 20:19, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
==About the block==
 
Why I was blocked for responding to jbanton's unprovoked pissy comment? I left my first opinion and then was belittled with "do some research" and:
 
 
" a view that indicates little research done before speaking. I suggest people do some research before voting if they wish to agree with this statemnt."
 
 
He has some sort of issue with me, and I have done nothing to him. If that is how he picks apart everyone then he does not have the temperment to be an admin. I called him insecure for his uncalled for attack on me, and then was met with a 3 day block, (thanks for just one) but he started it. I don't go around looking for fights. In fact me and Dodo have gotten past are conflict and have no problems now. [[User:Sasquatch101|Sasquatch101]] ([[User talk:Sasquatch101|talk]]) 02:22, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:I was less than happy with JBanton's comment that he's been "tempted to take a dark route", but if you see a fight brewing between you and another user it's best to talk to one of the bureaucrats instead of just laying into him. Can you tell me how all this started? I'm on my way to bed but I'll try to get the problems sorted between the two of you tomorrow. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 03:04, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Jeff. I created the [[Libel]] page without knowing there's already a page about it ([[LibEl]]). I added the content from the original page to the second one and improved it. I think [[LibEl]] should be deleted because is not abbreviated as '''LibEl''', but simply '''Libel'' (see the logo).

== A Particular User... ==
 
 
Hey, Jeff, I should warn you about a particular user: [[User:Povke]].
 
 
About seven months ago, this user operated on two accounts: accounts [[User:Povilas Povke]] and [[User:Povke PK]]. What he used to do that he would edit on his Povke PK, then switch to Povilas Povke then he would revert all of his PPK's edits and vice versa. If I can recall Ilan or Tom blocked both of his accounts for this. He came back under new accounts, such as [[User:PK LT EU|this]] [[User:PK LT|this]], and [[User:PK=Povke|this]], whick are all blocked.
 
 
I suggest we block him, but because he only made five edits and they're not negative, let's just keep a sharp eye on his actions.
 
 
Out,
 
[[User:Tony 1998|Mr. T., That&#39;s Me!]] ([[User talk:Tony 1998|talk]]) 02:56, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:I noticed that no one explained to him that multiple accounts were against the rules, so I left a very clear, very stern explanation on his talk page. I don't really expect him to listen to it (since he should've known he was doing something wrong when his other accounts kept getting blocked), but sometimes it pays to have good faith, and sometimes it's best to warn before punishing because if you don't malcontents whine about "corruption" and "abuse of power" and other such nonsense. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 04:24, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:::Understood. At first, I saw two accounts named almost the same. I didn't mind it, but when I saw what he was doing, I was about to tell an admin or a bureaucrat, but I saw Ilan blocking him immediately. His edits and undos on his accounts proved his blocking reasons, then he kept on coming back. Now that he hasn't done anything bad and he knows about the multiple accounts rule when/if he reads your warning, it's best to not worry about him/her/it.

==Watch Dogs Affiliation==
 
I just checked the community noticeboard and saw that the Watch Dogs Wiki affiliation request failed on account of not getting a 70% vote in favor.

==Boomer's block==
 
Hi. I heard about Boomer's block. I don't know how to tell you but... Ilan told me a while ago about what a good editor Winter Moon was. I'm not defending Boomer, but he was quite right in that post. You should encourage Winter Moon to be more active.<span style="color:#FF6600; font-family:Cooper Black">[[User:Dodo8|Dodo8]]</span> [[User talk:Dodo8|<sup>''<span style="color:#FF6600; font-family:Cooper Black>Talk</span>''</sup>]]

:::Agreed with that. Boomer should have said it kindly, since Winter Moon never said bad things about Boomer. BTW, I think I should stop talking about Winter's demotion.

::::Once the current dustup settles I plan to propose raising the staff limit by 1. Like I said before, if GTAV comes out and Winter Moon is still barely active, then maybe Messi and myself will be more inclined to support demoting him. And when someone proposed raising the admin limit by 5, there were some good points made that even if raising it by 5 was too many, 1 or 2 might be good. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 20:12, June 28, 2013 (UTC)

::Hey Jeff. I left a possible alternative to the wintermoon demotion issue. I don't want to get back into it so I just want to let you know its in the comments section of the demotion request.

==Demotion Deleted?==
 
Hey Jeff. I just came on tonight and saw that you took down the wintermoon demotion vote. I saw what boomer said and I aggree with you, but after you rightfully filtered the request, why would you remove it? I have no beef with WM. I respect the fact that he is a senior editor here and has done many worthy contributions. Boomers request was not exactly what I would have proposed. So with your blessing, could I craft a proper and respectful alternative to a demotion of wintermoon. It is no secret that I would love to be a possible candidate for admin, but this isn't about that. Wintermoon's situation could be handaled in a way that won't make him feel disrespected, but also allow growth for the wiki. I hope you'll agree to my proposition as I would like to have you and others see my proposal before you make up your mind. Thankyou[[User:Sasquatch101|Sasquatch101]] ([[User talk:Sasquatch101|talk]]) 04:46, June 29, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:Can you wait about a week? Messi, Tom and I have to have a talk, and there's something else going on that I have to hear back from Wikia Central about. Like I kept on saying, I'm not opposed to demoting Winter Moon if that's what the community thinks is right, but the prior discussion was turning into a mess of ideas that need to be considered individually and not in the context of demoting someone. I now think we ought to gain community consensus on how to deal with "just barely active" administrators before we vote on demoting Winter Moon. <b>[[User:McJeff|Jeff]]</b> ([[User_talk:McJeff|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/McJeff|stalk]]) 04:56, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

::Yeah Jeff, sure I'll wait a week or so. Also I think it is a great idea to persue a community vote regarding activity requirements.

Hey Jey. I just wanted you to know that I am going to submit my request regaurding Wintermoon on the community noticeboard tonight.

Hey Jeff. The demotion of Wintermoon looks dead. I know he has done nothing wrong but I dont think he even cares about being an admin anymore.

On the current controversial noticeboard topic it says a 70% no vote would achieve demotion, but surely voting against the motion would lead to the motion not being carried? (meaning no demotion) Shouldn't it be 70% in favour that leads to the motion being carried?

I have just gotten your message and I just want to let you know I'll drop the whole Winter Moon demotion thing since it failed. I'm done with the whole monotony of this dicussion.

:Hmmm, well, I'm fine about it. Dan told me WM logged on recently, and he also responded to his message. If he would atleast participate on the Community Noticeboard from time to time there would be no reason to have him demoted. I also totally agree with the decision. About the "shot" Boomer is talking about, I think we should organize a request on the Community Noticeboard for adding more Staff, but that's not urgent. And after what happened with WM's demotion I don't think anyone wants it too soon.

==Hey Jeff==
 
I was just going through my old talk page messages, and when I got to the end I can honestly say I feel like my reputation means shit on this wiki. It was just last March when I applied for admin, and even though it failed, Messi, Mikey, and Thomas all said they would vote yes in my next request. Then Dodo and I had our run in; and after that everyone has lost respect for me. Now there are admin limits, everyone has lost faith in me and overall I have a VERY unlikely chance at becoming an admin. No BS, do you think I'll ever become an admin? I have created a page for every street in GTA IV w/ cross street discriptions. Plus countless other edits that are of quality. Why does the overall staff not want be to become an admin? I just feel that the staff won't ever give me a chance. I don't know. Whats done is now done and I have to live with it.

:I'm going to apologize in advance for this comment, because it's mean spirited and it's going to offend some people, but it has to be put out here.
 
 
:There's a real maturity issue going on here with the staff and some of the patrollers especially. I've always stood up for people's rights to have opinions, I helped the Winter Moon demotion issue move along, and all I get is accusations that I've got some sleazy motivation to protect him. The motion wasn't popular, it didn't come close to passing, and frankly, when the few people who voted in favor of the demotion then go high five each other and celebrate how awesome they are for "standing up to the bureaucrats", it's damned obnoxious. People don't seem to know the difference between "adding content" and "adding unnecessary and redundant categories to everything". People are using these friends lists to form cliques and get back at each other over disagreements by removing each other from them. Boomer and Dodo acted so aggressive and suspicious during the initial demotion request against WM that Messi asked Wikia to run a checkuser on them because we thought they might be the same person. I blocked Thomas and undid it 15 minutes later, but Thomas's English is so poor that he didn't understand me when I told him he was unblocked, both he and Boomer are inches away from having demotion requests filed against them.
 
 
:And I'm just disgusted with the wiki right now and completely not in the mood to edit, let alone try and make policy proposals to let people run for administrator positions, especially since I'd be voting 'no' on just about any RfA anyway.
 
 
:I strongly suggest you and all the other patrollers drop the subject of admins for a long while, and by 'long while' I mean 'until GTA5 comes out and we see what kind of vandalism load we're dealing with'.

::Yes, I was supporting WM's demotion because he didn't edited for one month, but sincerely I was not doing it to get promoted. Right now I don't want to. I just realised a few days ago that I blame you for my mistake of having a bad behaviour. Sincerely it would be better for all of us to remain a patroller, school year is starting and we have to learn a lot for the exams that will decide our highschool. I won't have time to visit the wiki too much. You can go on with the checkuser thing, convince yourself I'm not lying.

::::Ok, can we stop this WM demotion/patroller promotion thing? It's getting annoying. And Sasquatch, don't be so offensed, I'm agreed with McJeff that most of your edits are adding categories and adding pages that have nothing to do with GTA (PS4, Xbox One), awful grammar also (Cemetarys). And let me remind you that I only said that you weren't prepared for the job, then you continued the fight after I stopped. Let's drop the stick.

:::::Jeff, why is it that I am so disliked by just about everyone? If you think I shouldn't be an admin based on the edits I have made then that is just not true. I make quality articles (every street in GTA 4). I don't just add pointless categories like male/female categories that everyone has jumped on. So Jeff I'll leave it at that, because I won't be distracted from my patrolled duties by the hopes of being an admin anymore.

You should take your own advice: [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:STICK Drop the stick and back slowly away from the horse carcass]. I am offended that Messi had to ask Wikia to have a checkuser test done on Dodo and I. We are both great contributors and for him to take it to that level is disgraceful.

::::::::There is nothing disgraceful about asking for a checkuser to make sure that two users are not the same. When two users have the number 8 at the end of their name, agree with each other nearly all of the time, then I had to make sure that you two were not sockpuppets. There is nothing disgraceful about checking that. I was doing it for the good of the wiki, cause we cannot have sockpuppets on here.

I blocked Boomer for a week for bad attitude.

:A week is exactly what our policy said he should get. His first block was for a day.

I noted there are two 'Promotion' sections on the Staff page, and they both pretty much the same (although the first section is more detailed than the second section).

== Bot permission ==
 
 
Hi! I looked up section about granting users new permissions, but I haven't found anything about bots. I was thinking of performing interwiki action between english gtaWiki and polish one. In wikipedias I had to apply for bot flag (in order not to spam in recent changes). How is it done here? As a bot operator I've got experience on wikia as well as on polish wikipedia as WebmajstrBot (over 5000 edits), so I think that changes commited by my bot won't damage this wiki :) [[User:OzgaBot|OzgaBot]] ([[User talk:OzgaBot|talk]]) 16:17, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, in about twenty-four hours time I'll be leaving on a five week holiday. I'll not have Wi-Fi access because I would like to save some cash for GTA and a new HDTV. I may still be able to use the internet via mobile, but my access to editing could drop to minimal at best. I'll try do my best while away and then return to business as usual when I return to the UK on 1st September.

If you leave a message on my talk page, I will respond here. If I leave you a message on your talk page, please respond there. I just like to keep conversations in one place so I don't have to switch pages to follow them.
This talk page is a swearing fucking permitted zone. Censorship asterisks are not permitted. Either refrain from swearing completely (which is cool) or belt that shit out loud and proud.
